SmackDown Results – July 31, 2020 (A Nightmare For Bliss Cross)


Naomi vs. Lacey Evans

Evans backed Naomi into the corner. Naomi fought back and attempted a hurricanrana, but Evans caught her and dropped her with a powerbomb.  Evans was firmly in control and slammed Naomi into the ring post. She tried tying Naomi’s hair into the steps, but she broke free. Naomi recovered and sent Evans to the floor. Naomi then hit a sliding sunset flip/Canadian Destroyer on Evans to the outside. Evans regained control and attempted the Woman’s Right. Naomi ducked and countered with a backslide for the win.

Winner: Naomi


In the back, Mandy Rose and Otis were going for a walk. Rose noted it feels like a long time since they went on a date. They made plans to have dinner. Rose flirted with Otis and told him to get ready. They both left, but the camera lingered, and Sonya Deville emerged from the background.

Back from the commercial break, Mandy Rose was getting ready for her date with Otis. She was putting on lipstick when Sonya Deville appeared from behind. Deville jumped Rose and viciously beat her down. Deville put lipstick all over Rose’s face. She then grabbed a pair of scissors and cut off chunks of Rose’s hair. Deville teased shaving the rest of her hair off until the referees stopped her.

Kayla Braxton was covering the attack in the back. Otis and Tucker ran in to check on Rose. Miz and John Morrison showed up and mocked Rose. They made a series of jokes about Rose’s hair cut. Tucker heard enough and screamed at them to leave.


SmackDown Women’s Title: Bayley (c) vs. Nikki Cross

Cross had the early advantage. Bayley tried fighting back, but Cross sent her to the floor. They fought on the apron, but Bayley took over with a leg drop. She backed Cross into the corner, but Cross fought back. Cross threw Bayley ribs first into the ring post and followed up with a crossbody block off the apron.  Back from the break, Bayley was firmly in control with a chin lock. She followed up with a back suplex for a near fall. Bayley missed an elbow and re-injured her ribs.

Cross fought back and hit a DDT for a near fall. Cross gained control with an inverted DDT on the apron. She then found Sasha Banks Boss ring on Bayley. Cross picked it up and tossed it out of the ring. Bayley hung Cross on the top rope to take back over. She then jumped on the announce table and mocked Cross. Cross recovered and pulled Bayley off the table. Banks jumped on the apron, but Bliss pulled her off. Cross scored a near fall with a backslide, but Bayley countered with a Face Plant for the win.

Winner: Bayley (c)


After the match, Cross was upset about the loss. Bliss tried to console her, but Cross didn’t want to hear it. Bliss kept talking until Cross shoved Bliss to the mat. Cross stormed off and left Bliss alone in the ring. Suddenly, the lights slowly turned off. The red lights then turned on with The Fiend in the ring. The Fiend stood behind a terrified Bliss. He slowly approached. Bliss was so scared she couldn’t move as The Fiend got closer to her. The Fiend slowly raised his hand in the hair. He then quickly applied the mandible claw on Bliss and yelled Braun Strowman’s name.
