Thank you for your support on Patreon “The
Kessel Run” Dxsolo Jeff Hardy announces he’s injured and The
Hardyz vacate the tag titles! Shane McMahon is officially feuding with two stars across
two shows – he really is the best in the world – and Kevin Owens goes full Sid and attacks
toys. And what the heckins is going on with Dean Ambrose, I mean Jon Moxley? Click the

to answer our important question of the day: And make sure you vote in the poll above my
head to let me know what you thought of the show, where you can choose from: SmackDamn,
SmackTastic, Smack Bang in the Middle, SmackDowner, and A Smack in the Face. This is the 30th
of April 2019 edition of Smackdown Live. Michael Cole was in the ring for the start
of the show to interview WWE Champion Kofi Kingston. Now you’ll remember that Kevin
Owens attacked Kofi last week [6], and his best friend Xavier Woods was powerbombed onto
the apron. So you’d imagine he’ll be a bit upset about all this. Nope, he’s throwing
pancakes like nothing happened. Oddly this then turned into a 10-minute recap of how
Kofi got to the point of winning the WWE Championship. Guys, there are more pressing matters at hand.
Finally they started talking about Kevin Owens, who came out on the stage to say that Kofi
is drowning in the sea of pressure being the Champion. Xavier Woods tried to attack Owens,
but KO superkicked him and left him laying once again. In a series of backstage segments, the Smackdown
Lady Folk in the Women’s Money in the Bank match were revealed. Bayley was announced
via graphic, Sonya Deville told Mandy Rose she should be in the match because she’s
earned this chance – weren’t you two breaking up before Mania? – and Not Renee Young revealed
that Ember Moon and Carmella will fill the final two spots. With Asuka and Sane tied
up with the Tag Team Championships, these four were probably the best choice. As a nice follow-up, Becky Lynch then took
on Money in the Bank entrant Bayley in a decent back and forth match, which Lynch won with
the Disarmer – and was immediately attacked by Charlotte Flair – you know, the exact same
thing that happened last week when Becky beat Alicia Fox and was then attacked by Lacey
Evans. But to WWE’s credit, this was done to put
over the idea that even if Becky wins both her matches at Money in the Bank, there will
be a women with a lunchbox looking to cash in and win her title – further stacking the
odds against The Man – and because of that, I’m going to say this segment was an up.
Wait. Aleister Black cut another spooky promo, and
the The Hardy Boyz came out to announce that Jeff was injured and they were vacating the
championships. Turning a negative into a positive, they credited Lars Sullivan for injuring Jeff
to add some heat onto his character. Lurkin’ Lars then came out and laid out Matt Hardy.
R-Truth tried to make the save with a chair, but Lars is a Chair Type Pokemon and he punched
it out his hand. He then laid out Truth with the Freak Accident and Running Powerbomb.
I’d like to see Lars do some different stuff now. Perhaps more concerning though is the state
of the tag division on Smackdown. With The Hardyz no longer the champs, the only feasible
replacements are Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura. New Day seem a bit tied up currently, which
only leaves The B-Team, The Colons, Heavy Machinery and – at a push – The Singh Brothers.
That is a diabolically poor line-up of options. Even if they put the belts on Rusev and Nakamura,
they can feud with Heavy Machinery but then what? The Smackdown Bloke Folk for the Men’s Money
in the Bank were announced next, and joining Ricochet, Braun Strowman, Drew McIntyre and
– sigh – Baron Corbin from Raw will be Finn Balor, Ali, Andrade and Randy Orton. Let’s
be honest, it could have been worse. Kinda feels like this would have been a good time
to debut and push Buddy Murphy, though, rather than have Randy Orton in the match. Murphy’s fellow countrywomen The IIconics
were out for commentary next, as Kairi Sane and Asuka – who are clearly a tag team now
as they’ve merged their themes together in the most aggressively pants way possible
– quickly dispatched of two enhancement talents. IIconics were great on commentary, and Sane
and Asuka looked awesome in the ring. This was fun. What was less fun, however, was Roman Reigns
coming out for a promo to continue his feud with THE BEST IN THE WOOOOOOOOOOOORLD Shane
McMahon. He truly is the best in the world. Shane then booked Roman in a handicap match
against one of those teams that could be the next Smackdown Tag Champs, The B-Team. And
boy, I have not missed this act at all. Shane also made Elias the Special Guest Enforcer
for the match, stacking the deck against The Big Dog. Okay, so let’s all play this one at home,
how do you think this match played out? Will Roman quickly dispatch of this jobber team
despite being at the disadvantage? Will be be on top all the time, but struggle because
he’s at a two man disadvantage? Or will be worked over for 90% of the match, do some
Superman Punches OOOHAH hit the spear and win? If you answered C, of course he did.
I’ve got no problem with Roman being booked in matches where he’s massivly at a disadvantage,
and I’ve no problem with him winning those matches either, but there is only so long
you can look at Bo Dallas put Roman in an ineffective and boring headlock before you
tune out. This isn’t an exciting way to book wrestling matches. Sociopath is still the word of the day as
the same Firefly Funhouse sketch from Raw was shown again, and then Finn Balor teamed
with Ali to take on Randy Orton and Andrade. This was sadly mostly ad break, and Ali pinned
Andrade with the 450 splash. Randy then laid out Balor with the RKO, and Ali kicked Randy
out the ring to stand tall. Simple stuff. And the main event segment saw Kevin Owens
host the KO Show with special guest Xavier Woods. However Woods was too injured to come
out, so he set up Woods and Big E action figures to interview instead. This brought out the
super serious Kofi Kingston we should have seen at the start of the show, who charged
the ring for an intense brawl against Owens – and the show ended with both men starring
each other down. Coming off the back of some disastrous ratings
last week, you’d have thought WWE would come out all guns blazing to drum up some
interest in Money in the Bank. Sadly Raw was a very dull show and this was only slightly
better. Nothing on it was terrible, but there was almost nothing to talk about. This week’s
Smackdown Live is a SmackDowner. And now over to Oli Davis with the latest
on Dean Ambrose leaving WWE which I’m sure is all still just a work. Great review, Luke – but before we get onto
today’s massive news about Dean Ambrose. It’s now one week to go until WrestleTalk’s
Live In London screening of the classic WCW movie Ready to Rumble! Me, Luke, Laurie, Chopper
Pete, Housemate Simon and even Randy Andy Datson will all be there doing a meet and
greet before the film, and then a live WrestleRamble podcast afterwards! Get your tickets by clicking
the ‘i’ above my head or the link in the video description below as they’re going
fast! And now… one of the biggest wrestling stories
of the year. Because last night, April 30th, at 12am – the
exact time Dean Ambrose’s WWE contract expired – the former Lunatic Fringe posted this video
from his new Twitter account under the name he made famous before joining WWE, Jon Moxley
[03]: The story appears to be that Dean is finally
breaking out of WWE’s Ambrose Asylum to become Jon Moxley again
– a much more serious character after reportedly being frustrated with WWE’s “hokey s***”
He’s even being chased by a Big Dog Ooo-arrr. The obvious speculation is that this is a
video promoting Moxley to join WWE’s new rival promotion All Elite Wrestling, as the
production values for the promo appear to be very high, and there are two possible AEW
clues in the clip. Firstly are the days counted marks on the
prison wall that open the video, with the lit up ones adding up to the number 25.
AEW’s first official pay-per-view Double or Nothing takes place on Saturday 25th May And secondly the Viper Room’s dice sign
that Ambrose walks past on the street. With dice being a key part of Double or Nothing’s
marketing material, which is set in Las Vegas. Those dice also have the numbers 2 and 5 on
them, again potentially referencing the 25th May date for the event.
And possibly the most telling sign… AEW co-executive vice-president Cody Rhodes has
liked Ambrose’s video on Twitter. Dean Ambrose to AEW confirmed!
It’s a hugely exciting time to be a wrestling fan, just not a WWE one.
And Dean isn’t the only guy who can do video package teases, as we’ve got a new show
starting on WrestleTalk this Sunday, ScreenGrapple! – where El Fakidor Laurie Blake laughs at
all the wacky and wild wrestling stuff on the Internet with his housemate Simon.
Here’s Housemate Simon, tell them to watch the video and tune in this Sunday. Do it.

  1. OLI: Get your tickets to see us live in London with our screening of Ready 2 Rumble here! https://wrestletalk.com/news/wrestletalk-presents-ready-to-rumble-prince-charles-cinema/

  2. It's between drew and Andrade for mitb because
    Ricochet – debuted to early to win a mitb ladder match
    Finn – is already IC Champ plus he failed last year (I personally think he shouldn't be in the match)
    Braun – can't win two mitb cases in a row
    Corbin – failed cash in and fans don't want that again
    Ali – chances are slim for him since he's the only cruiserweight in that match and the big men would over power him despite his quickness
    Orton – again has already won mitb like Corbin and Braun plus Ortons career is dying at the moment so if he's lucky enough to win then maybe Randy's career will not be over…yet

    This is just my opinion so no hate please I just think drew and almas should win since the two have been through a lot since coming to wwe.

  3. He's under 90 day no compete clause. Like I wrote elsewhere, he'll be back on WWE going as Jon Moxley fighting the McMahons soon.

  4. BREAKING NEWS!!! Ok, here's the scoop, Dean Ambrose has left the WWE however Jon Moxley will be signed by WWE. The WWE is working the WWE universe. No more lunatic fringe, or shield. Part of new creative deal between J.Good and WWE.

  5. HAVE DEAN FEUD WITH JIMMY HAVOC PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BOOK IT VINCE!………………!

  6. Wwe gave Moxley old Ambrose insta account. He stays with them. Dean Ambrose didnt resign contract, but Jon Moxley did.

  7. Jon is back and looking to kick ass. Reminds me of the opening to a good tv show. I'm in on this.

  8. Hate to say it but Lars is done… the fact that wwe pushed him so hard and then he no showed (regardless of the reason)… people just don’t care anymore…

    Fans boo him at the shows not because he is a heel, but because they’d rather not see him all together… chanting “you can’t wrestle”

    Sorry WWE, but all that hype build up and then Lars no showing because “he was stressed out” has pretty much ruined this character debut. A lot of wrestlers would sacrifice anything to be on wwe and since Lars no showed, the fans don’t feel he’s worthy of their affection. Period.
