SmackDown Recap: May 30, 2017
S2017 episode 928 Aired on May 30, 2017

This spontaneous tag team match saw all four Superstars attempt to begin carving out a path of momentum toward the Money in the Bank Ladder Match while simultaneously attempting to work with their partner as a unit to settle personal scores.

The contest was physical, but things took a nosedive for Owens and Corbin when they were unable to work together, setting the stage for The Lone Wolf to drop KO. This led to Zayn neutralizing Corbin and Nakamura swooping in to hit the Kinshasa on The New Face of America for the win.

Attempting to bounce back from last week’s loss in their SmackDown Tag Team Championship rematch against The Usos, Breezango aimed to reset against the formidable duo of The Colons.

In an edition of “The Fashion Files” from earlier in the evening, it was suggested that Primo & Epico trashed Breezango’s office. Primo & Epico roughed up Tyler Breeze and Fandango in this contest, but The Fashion Police battled through and secured the victory when Breeze (dressed as Janitor Carl) hit the Unprettier on Primo to get his team back into the winner’s circle.

Two of SmackDown LIVE’s finest squared off in the main event with crucial Money in the Bank Ladder Match momentum at stake.

Dolph Ziggler and AJ Styles wowed the WWE Universe with their athleticism, putting on dazzling displays that kept both the audience, and each other, on their toes. Each Superstar had his moments in the hard-hitting affair, but Ziggler would resort to every measure necessary to prevail, gouging Styles’ eyes to escape the Calf Crusher and defeating The Phenomenal One with a vicious superkick to the head.

Will this major win give The Showoff a distinct edge as the Money in the Bank Ladder Match approaches?

In other action … Shinsuke Nakamura was a guest on Kevin Owens’ Highlight Reel … The New Day confronted The Usos and made a major WWE Money in the Bank announcement … The 5-Way Elimination Match to determine the No. 1 contender to the SmackDown Women’s Championship never began … and Randy Orton spoke for the first time since WWE Backlash.
