WWE SmackDown Results – October 2, 2018

Welcome to SmackDown Live. 

Paige is in the ring. She says that she was told this job would be exhilarating, emotional, and exhausting. She never thought she would be in the situation she is in right now. Samoa Joe crossed the line last week and he did the worst thing in WWE history. We take a look at the video.

Paige says that Samoa Joe never entered the house and charges were filed for trespassing. Paige says that she talked to officials and they came to the decision that Samoa Joe should be fired.

Paige says that she talked to AJ Styles to see if he was okay. No man should be in that situation with his family. AJ wanted to have the charges dropped and not have Samoa Joe fired. He said that firing would not be enough for Joe. AJ says he wanted to dish out the punishment. The match is still on for Saturday. Paige has a video from AJ Styles.

AJ is at home and he apologizes for not being at Smackdown but with what has gone on, he did not think he would be able to perform tonight. AJ says this is bigger than WWE. AJ says he doesn’t want to do something stupid or emotional and regret it. AJ says that is why he is at home and he is not leaving until he gets confirmation that Joe is on a plane to Australia. AJ says he has four amazing kids and they need him right now. He says he needs to be at home. He says he needs to be here for his daughter because she has been waking up in the middle of the night looking under the bed or in the closet for Uncle Joe like he is the boogeyman.

AJ says this will end. This needs to end. You are not coming back from the Land Down Under. AJ says that is exactly where he is going to put him. AJ says he is not going to put Joe’s body in a casket and putting dirt on it. He is going to bury him alive.

Becky says six weeks ago she stopped waiting and started taking. Since that night in Brooklyn, she has been the best thing about Smackdown. Since she ran through the entire locker room and toppled the Queen, she runs this division. It is the most relevant thing in WWE. She learned that being kind and being patient gets you nothing but stabbed in the back and treated like a fool. Not no more. She is relentless. She strikes first.

Becky asks if that was nice and she says she could watch that all day. Time and time again, she has proven that she has owned Charlotte Flair. The more they change, the more they stay the same. Where is her magazine cover? Where is the action figure with her holding the title belt? She has to see the person she beat doing media events. She will prove it is this face that belongs on the magazines and posters. If they won’t do it for her, she will do it herself.
