This week’s episode of SmackDown Live featured a couple of interesting dark matches including a Champion vs. Champion match and a match between two Raw Stars.
The first dark match which took place before the show started saw Raw Stars Titus O’Neil and Mike Kanellis battling in a one on one bout where O’Neil picked up the victory.
No word yet on why the company used Raw Stars for SmackDown dark match but it’s likely that they used hometown Star Titus to help with the ticket sales.
The second dark match saw AJ Styles battling with the United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura in a Champion vs. Champion match.
Styles who was kept away from the show for unknown reason won this bout after he hit the Japanese Star with a Styles Clash and pinned him.
