Austin Theory became the No. 1 Contender to the United States Championship after The Miz showed up to Friday Night SmackDown and cost LA Knight the match. 

Knight was on a mission to prove a point, especially with The Miz at ringside, as he bashed Theory’s face on the announce table right in front of The A-Lister. 

Sick and tired of Knight’s success, The Miz hopped off of commentary, and his distraction allowed Theory to roll up Knight and win the match, securing his championship opportunity.

The Queen and The EST proved to be a formidable duo as Charlotte Flair and Bianca Belair teamed up to defeat Bayley and WWE Women’s Champion IYO SKY of Damage CTRL. 

Flair and Belair looked sharp early, but a dropkick to the back of Belair’s leg and Flair awkwardly landing on her ankle stunted the momentum that the two Superstars had built. 

After absorbing the brunt of a beatdown, Flair finally managed to tag in Belair, and a K.O.D. was enough to end the match.

“The Rated-R Superstar” Edge celebrated his 25th anniversary in WWE in style as he defeated Sheamus in a thrilling matchup in front of Edge’s hometown of Toronto. 

Edge specifically chose Sheamus for this opportunity as the two Superstars had never faced off before this matchup, and they wasted no time engaging in what Sheamus calls “Fight Night.” 

Both Superstars dug deep as they battled inside the squared circle, with Edge kicking out of a thunderous Brogue Kick and Sheamus kicking out of a rib-cracking Spear. 

It was truly meant to be Edge’s night as he lined up The Celtic Warrior for one last Spear that gave him the victory on his special 25th anniversary.
