All this and more tonight on SmackDown! Join us here for real-time updates coinciding with the SyFy broadcast at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT).


* Roman Reigns vs. Bo Dallas — Reigns finishes Dallas with a Superman Punch and a Spear. He cuts a promo about Bray Wyatt after the match, saying he sees nothing but pure evil in his eyes and the only way to beat the Devil is to go into Hell. These two will meet at Hell in a Cell on Oct. 25th. Bray comes over the Titantron with an “anyone but you” promo.

* Sheamus, King Barrett vs. Neville, Cesaro — Cesaro goes to put Sheamus in a Swing, but gets flattened with a Bullhammer from Barrett. Sheamus then pins Cesaro.

* Summer Rae talks to Renee backstage about Rusev and Lana’s marriage, how she found out and her role as guest referee tonight as Rusev faces Ziggler. She tells Renee she can keep her personal life and professional life separate and can remain impartial tonight.

* Kevin Owens vs. Zack Ryder — Ryback is ringside. Owens finishes Ryder with a Pop-Up Power Bomb. Ryback goes after him but it will have to wait until Hell in a Cell as Owens escapes while holding his belt in the air.

* Paige apologizes to Natalya backstage and says she’s been under a lot of pressure. Paige says she misses her as a friend and mentor. Nattie tells Paige she has a long way to go but this is a start.

* Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev (Summer Rae as special guest referee) — Not sure where Lana is, she could be off playing the pokies for all we know. … Rusev should have gotten the pin but Summer takes her time, he confronts her, she slaps him and Ziggler finishes him off for the 1,2,3 count. Summer finds common ground with Ziggler with Lana and Rusev cheating on them both and tries to get together with him. He knows she’s just trying to use him and wants nothing to do with her.

* Prime Time Players vs. Luke Harper, Braun Strowman — Strowman picks Darren Young off the ground with a standing choke and drops him unconscious to the canvas for the submission victory.

* Divas Champ Charlotte (with Becky Lynch) vs. Alicia Fox (with Bella Twins) — Team B.A.D. watches from backstage. Charlotte ends up submitting Alicia with a Figure 8. Team Bella attacks Charlotte and Alicia after the match but Paige comes out to save the day and help her teammates.

* Paige apologizes to Charlotte and Becky backstage for her previous actions. She then takes off and Becky and Charlotte find Nattie laid out on the floor.

* Dean Ambrose, Dudley Boyz vs. The New Day — Dudley’s with a 3-D on Kofi Kingston, but New Day is disqualified when Xavier attacks them with a trombone. New Day goes ahead and beats them down though to end the show.
