SmackDown Results – April 17, 2020 (No More Eye Candy)

Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross walked out for A Moment of Bliss. They noted that they will defend their Tag Team titles against Carmella and Dana Brooke next week. Their guest was Braun Strowman. They talked about his upcoming match with Bray Wyatt. Once Braun tried to leave, he noticed a gift in the ring. He thought it was from Bliss, but she said she knew nothing about it. He opened it and saw a mask from his days with The Wyatt Family.

Tamina vs. Sasha Banks w/Bayley

Bayley was on commentary. Banks was in control for some time, until Tamina gained momentum. Bayley distracted Tamina at ringside, and Banks shoved Tamina into the ring post. She followed up with a 619 and pushed her into the steel steps. Bayley teased attacking Tamina when Lacey Evans ran out and wiped out Bayley with a tackle. Tamina then rocked Banks with a superkick for the win.

Winner: Tamina

Back from the break, Kayla Braxton interviewed Lacey Evans. Evans promised to follow Sasha Banks wherever she goes.

In the back, Dana Brooke was warming up for her Money In The Bank Qualifying match. Carmella approached Brooke and was unhappy that Brooke took this match. She pointed out it’s risky because they have a match against Women’s Tag Team Champions next week. Brooke wasn’t concerned and noted she’s going to win tonight and next week.

MITB Qualifier: Dana Brooke vs. Naomi

Naomi had the early advantage and scored a near fall. Brooke took over and threw Naomi to ringside. Brooke wanted to win by count-out but followed up with a sliding dropkick. Brooke slowed the pace down and locked on the body scissors. Naomi recovered and fought back. She rocked Brooke with a springboard kick for a near fall. Naomi attempted a hurricanrana, but Brooke countered with a sit-out powerbomb for a near fall. Brooke attempted a cartwheel splash, but Naomi got her knees up. Naomi tried the rearview, but Brooke rolled her up for a near fall. Naomi hit the rearview for a near fall. Naomi attempted a split-legged moonsault but missed. Brooke then used a sunset flip for the win.

Winner: Dana Brooke

Sonya Deville came to the ring and begged Mandy Rose to come to the ring. She fought back the tears and wants to tell Rose something. She’s been trying to call Rose all week, but she won’t take her calls. Mandy Rose made her way to the ring. She doesn’t have anything to say to Deville because of what she did to Otis. Deville noted they’d been together since Tough Enough.

Deville dropped the fake crying. She called Rose, selfish. Deville knew that Rose would kick her to the curb once she got Otis. Deville said this is about their tag team. Deville tried to hook her up with Dolph Ziggler because he was going to help Fire & Desire. Deville is happy the cards are on the table because she wants to see Rose hurt. Deville promised to show everyone the real leader of the team was a fighter and not some centerfold model.

Rose noted she was happy she slapped Deville at WrestleMania 36. They teased fighting when Ziggler ran out. He apologized for his actions. Ziggler told Rose to look into his eyes and say to him that she doesn’t feel anything. Rose pushed Ziggler’s hand away. Deville then jumped Rose, but Ziggler wasn’t happy that she did. Otis ran out for the save and gave Ziggler the caterpillar. Rose got her hands on Deville, but Deville escaped.
