What Happened Before & After SmackDown Live Goes On & Off The Air

Last night’s episode of SmackDown Live emanated from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The dark match that took place before last night’s episode of SmackDown Live went on the air saw The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso) defeat Rusev Day (Rusev & Aiden English). It was noted that the Bell Centre was full of loud “Rusev Day” chants during the match.
The dark main event that took place after last night’s episode of SmackDown Live went off the air saw Daniel Bryan face Shinsuke Nakamura. Earlier in the evening, WWE had said that Bryan was not cleared to appear on last night’s episode of SmackDown Live, which was clearly just a storyline. Bryan and Nakamura had a short but fun 7-10 minute match with a lot of submissions that the crowd was going crazy for and they chanted “Oui!”. The end of the match saw Bryan hitting Nakamura with his Yes! kicks, only for Nakamura to duck one of them and hit a low blow, which prompted the referee to ring the bell and rule the match for Bryan via disqualification.
After the match, Nakamura came back for the kinshasa, but Bryan reversed it and sent him fleeing after hitting a running knee. Bryan then cut a promo where he thanked the crowd and asked them to teach him what “oui” means.
