WWE Smackdown: Cena sends a warning shot; Ambrose and Miz are far from over

WWE Smackdown aired live from Baton Rogue tonight. The build-up to the Royal Rumble rolled on as the top superstars from the blue brand looked to garner momentum ahead of the big event. Following are the highlights from Smackdown –

 

John Cena solidifies his case as contender

After returning to Smackdown two weeks ago, Cena received flack from fans for inserting himself into the title picture. But this week Cena shut his critics up by defeating rising star Baron Corbin in the main event. AJ Styles was at ringside after the match and faced off against his challenger to close out the show. The match at the Royal Rumble is sure to set up one or more angles at Wrestlemania. Styles will look to get his third consecutive win against Cena on pay-per-view.

 

 

Ambrose and Miz are far from over

Dean Ambrose hosted the Ambrose Asylum. His guest – former Intercontinental Champion Miz. Both superstars announced they will be taking part in the Royal Rumble match. Miz demanded his title back and threatened legal action if Ambrose did not follow through. Maryse tried to hit a low-blow, but it backfired as Ambrose connected with Dirty Deeds on the Awesome One.

 

 

Brawl breaks out between Nikki and Natalya

After weeks of cheap shots and insults, Nikki Bella and Natalya came to blows on Smackdown. In a scheduled match, everything got out of hand as referees had to separate the two women. Natalya took advantage and applied the Sharpshooter to get a measure of revenge against Nikki.

 

American Alpha retain their titles

Newly crowned tag-team champions American Alpha successfully defended their titles against the Wyatt family to solidify their arrival to the main roster. Jordan and Gable were the quicker team, but the experience of Orton and Wyatt proved to be the factor in the early going. The action went back-and-forth before Harper distracted the referee as Orton was lining up to hit the RKO. This gave Chad Gable the opportunity to roll up Orton and pick up the win. There are signs of dissension in the Wyatt family.
