WWE SmackDown Results – May 28, 2019
We start off with a look at last week’s Smackdown and the return of Dolph Ziggler.
We are in Tulsa, Oklahoma and your announcers are Tom Phillips, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton.
Kevin says he was going to kick off Smackdown with the Kevin Owens Show, but he cannot think of anything worse than being in the middle of the ring in Oklahoma giving a Kevin Owens Show to people who are not worthy. The only thing that makes being in front of you bearable is that in a few moments he gets to beat the hell out of WWE Champion Kofi Kingston. Kevin says he has acquired the taste for beating up members of the New Day. Kevin says he had nothing to do with the attack on Big E last week. Big E was probably busy sending a tweet when that happened.
If New Day wants to blame him for anything, they can blame him for what he is responsible for. They can blame him for the pain Xavier Woods has been in for the last few weeks. They can blame him for Kofi’s fairy tale ending at Super Showdown when Dolph Ziggler beats him for the WWE Championship. That will be a direct result of what he does to Kofi tonight. When you beat Kofi, Dolph, you can thank him in person and give him a title match.
Kofi tells Kevin to stop with the lies. You said that you didn’t attack Big E and everyone knows you did it. You lied about wanting to be part of the New Day. You are not a good person, you are a liar. Now you are saying that you are going to soften him up for Dolph Ziggler. Now you are lying to yourself. You are not going to soften him up for Dolph Ziggler.
Kofi says tonight is the night you are going to pay. You are going to pay for reinjuing Big E’s knee and for what you did to Xaiver. Most importantly, you leave here with a clear cut understanding why he is your WWE Champion.
