“WWE: Then. Now. Forever.”
We go to the closing moments of Hell in a Cell this past Sunday, when Undertaker was attacked and dragged away by the Wyatt Family. We then go to RAW the night after, with Bray claiming to have taken the soul of the Undertaker when Kane went to defend his brother, only to be attacked and dragged away. We then cut to Bray Wyatt, sitting alone with the Undertaker’s hat on his lap. He says that the spirits that fuel the Undertaker now belong to him. He owns the soul of Kane and the Undertaker. He gives a challenge to any three souls brave enough to step up, as the rest of his Family comes into view. Rowan takes his mask off, saying he was never allowed to dress up for Halloween. He was told it was too sinful. Luke says these are not costumes; evil is very real. Bray says to the three souls brave enough to step up…”my condolences” and to the rest of you…he pulls out Kane’s mask, handing it to Braun who finishes with “your annihilation awaits. Run.”
With that we go to the usual SmackDown intro, being welcome to a very special Halloween edition of “Thursday Night SmackDown” in Phoenix before Roman Reigns makes his way down through the crowd. Commentary talks about Roman’s impressive week starting with Hell in a Cell, defeating Bray Wyatt in a namesake match and then defeating Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, and Kevin Owens to become the #1 Contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Roman is in the ring, microphone in hand as he starts to speak. Since day one he’s had one goal, one dream, and that’s to win the WWE Championship. He’s had a lot of people trying to stop him, from Seth Rollins at Wrestlemania to Bray Wyatt back at Money in the Bank. He’s been knocked down a lot, but he dusted himself off, picked himself up, and got back in fight! He beat Bray Wyatt at Hell in a Cell, ended that, and now he’s back on track as #1 contender for the WWE Championship. There’s one man in his way, and that’s Seth Rollins. There’s no one that would love to see Roman fail more than Seth Rollins. Suddenly, Kevin Owens comes out with a mic in hand. “Yeah, yeah, yeah…we got it, Roman. Monday night on RAW you stole one from me, and now you’re the #1 Contender…yay, go Roman!” He claims that Roman’s win on Monday was a fluke. If he had hit Roman with the Pop Up Powerbomb, we would be looking at Kevin as the #1 Contender…and you can “believe…that!” Roman thinks it sounds like a bunch of excuses to him. Kevin talks about luck, but that win was so pretty that was skill. Kevin can either stand there and “Talk Owens Talk” or he can man up, get in the ring, and “Fight Owens Fight” because he’s looking for a big fight…and you can believe that!
Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens
Roman and Kevin go nose to nose before the bell rings, and they lock up. Kevin gets a headlock, but Roman pushes him off the rope and they bump into each other. Roman with a headlock now, and Kevin pushes him off the rope before they bump into each other again, clearly neither man giving way. Kevin with another headlock, pushed off the ropes, and this time Roman shoulder blocks Kevin down, forcing the Intercontinental champion to roll out of the ring to catch a breather. He comes back into the ring, but is met with offense by Reigns before being taken down with a neckbreaker before he goes to the ropes as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial, Roman hits a hard kick to Kevin’s face before picking him up. He throws him into the corner, and drops Owens with a back suplex. Kevin goes to the ropes as Roman picks him up, but Owens catches him on the rope and knocks Reigns out of the ring. He follows, throwing Reigns into the barricade before slamming him again. Kevin goes for the cover for a nearfall. Owens goes for another cover and a nearfall before working on Roman some more. He lays into Roman, but is shoved into the corner as Roman hits a series of punches and a big boot to Owens for the cover and a nearfall. Roman picks Kevin up, but it’s countered into a back body drop and a kick to the face for a nearfall by Owens. In the corner, Kevin hits a hard arm and goes for the corner cannonball…but gets a fist to the face and Roman gets another cover and nearfall! Roman looks for the Superman Punch, but Kevin wisely rolls out of the ring and up the ramp. Roman catches up, throwing him back into the ring…but Kevin manages to hit a German Suplex for the nearfall! Owens goes for another German, but Roman counters looking for the Samoan Drop…but Kevin gets onto the top rope, before getting hit as Roman goes for a superplex. Roman eventually hits the Superman Punch on Owens, knocking him off the rope to the outside as the ref starts the count. Owens decides he’s had enough for one night, and leaves through the crowd as the ref calls for the bell!
Winner via count out: Roman Reigns
Owens continues to walk away as we see a very disappointed Roman in the ring. We get a replay of the nearfall by Owen and the Superman Punch by Roman that sent Owens off and away. Roman celebrates in the ring, still shaking his head as we go to Renee Young and Dean Ambrose in the back. Dean has the answer, so Renee can go ahead and ask the question…”are you going to accept Bray Wyatt’s challenge tonight?” Hell yeah, he’s the man without fear! He’s ready to step up, and if anyone wants to join him that’s cool. He might go down…but how many Wyatt boys is he gonna take down with him? He walks off as someone in a ghost costume pops up behind Renee Young. It’s “Boo Dallas” trying to scare her, to no avail. Halloween is no fun if you don’t scare people, so he promises someone tonight is gonna get scared…and all you have to do is “Boolieve!” He walks off as we cut back to ringside, as the Dudley Boyz make their way out to the ring as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial, King Barrett and Sheamus make their way to the ring as we see Lucha Dragons and the Ascension already in the ring. Before the match starts, though…”PHOENIX, ARIZONA, DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR! CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD FAMOUS TWO TIME CHAMPS AND FEEL THE POWAH!”
Big E and Kofi come out wearing unicorn horns, as Kofi tells everyone to calm down because this is serious. E and Kofi were discussing what to talk about on the commentary when they realized…no horns, no costumes, no candy? These guys don’t believe in Halloween, which means they don’t believe in magic! Shame, shame, shame! They go to the commentary booth as the match is underway.
Tag Team Terror Four Corners Match
Dudley Boyz vs. King Barrett & Sheamus vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. The Ascension
Kalisto and Sheamus start things off, Kalisto trying to use his speed against the Money in the Bank winner, to some decent success as Sheamus tags Barrett in. Bubba Ray is yelling at Kalisto to tag him in, so he can go after Barrett himself. Kalisto obliges, and Bubba looks primed and ready as he gets in the ring. Barrett shoves him and goes for a right hand, but is met with a flurry of punches by Bubba Ray before Barrett catches him with a knee to the gut. Barrett whips Bubba into the corner, but is met with an elbow to the face as Bubba then drops Sheamus off the apron. Bubba tags in D’Von, and they double team the 2015 King of the Ring as the Ascension come in and chaos starts to ensue. Kalisto gets the drop on the Ascension, D’Von clotheslines Viktor out of the ring, and “the good guys are rallying” in the ring as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial, Bubba Ray is arguing with New Day at ringside as D’Von and Barrett go at it. D’Von goes to work on Barrett wit a suplex and a cover for the nearfall. D’Von tags in Kalisto, but is dropped off the rope by Viktor as Barrett goes for the cover and a nearfall! He tags in Sheamus, and the two of them lay into Kalisto. Sheamus continues the assault, until Kalisto starts to turn things around…only for the Ascension to get involved as Viktor is tagged in, before Viktor gets the nearfall. Konnor is tagged in now, but Kalisto evades him as Konnor’s shoulder is driven into the steel post. Kalisto tags in Sin Cara, who hits a barrage of high flying offense and bounces off the top rope for a hurricanrana for the cover until Barrett and Sheamus break up the pin! The Dudleyz are in now, delivering stereo scoop slams to Barrett and Sheamus as Sin Cara climbs the turnbuckle. Kalisto goes to the oother one, and the former NXT Champions get to live out every Attitude Era fan’s dream of delivering the Wassup Headbutt! As Barrett and Sheamus roll out of the ring, the Lucha Dragons are launched over the ropes dropping down on The Ascension! Sheamus and Barrett are back in, and lure the Dudleyz out to the back as the Lucha Dragons deal with the Ascension. Kalisto gets the blind tag, hitting Viktor with a Salida Del Sol off the apron into the ring for the win!
Winners via pinfall: The Lucha Dragons
They celebrate in the ring, and we see New Day mocking the Dragons from ringside before commentary hypes up the Trick or Treat Street Fight between Dolph Ziggler and The Miz as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial, commentary talks about Halloween stuff (Lawler dressing as “Life” and handing out lemons, etc.) before talking about Bray Wyatt’s “Face the Fear Challenge” and the fact Dean Ambrose has accepted so far. We cut to the back, where Dean Ambrose tries to guess what someone is dressed as…Lex Luthor? The Transporter? James Bond? It’s actually Cesaro, who says it’s just how he dresses. But, if Dean gives him a couple minutes, he’ll go change, and dress up as Dean’s tag partner for tonight…because you look like you’re ready to go to the Thunderdome, Mad Max! Dean laughs, accepting on one condition: Cesaro has to swing those ghouls around so many times their beards come flying off! That is, unless he’s scared. Cesaro promises he’ll be the scariest guy out there; when he gets in the ring, he ruins people’s dreams like Freddy Krueger. Dean can be Jason Voorhees, or something. Dean says he’ll just be him, and Cesaro says that works as Dean walks off. Suddenly, “Boo Dallas” jumps out trying to scare Cesaro…again, to no avail. Cesaro just walks off as we go back to commentary, who talk about what happened last week on SmackDown with Dolph Ziggler and Summer Rae on MizTV. Summer tells Dolph she’s moved on, and wants him to see what a real man looks like as Tyler Breeze makes his debut appearance on SmackDown! Dolph starts to talk Breeze down, but the Sultan of Selfies attacks him before laying out the Show Off with a Beauty Shot!
We cut back to the ring, where pumpkins are out on the apron as Eden introduces us to the Trick or Treat Street Fight! Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the ring dressed as Nikki Stix from Mötley Crüe as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial, The Miz makes his way to the ring dressed as…The Miz (or Damien Mizdow, trololol) looking smug as usual as the match begins.
Trick or Treat Street Fight
Dolph Ziggler vs. The Miz
Miz pauses Dolph to take his shades off, and Dolph is not into it. Miz starts kicking the pumpkins off the apron before he and Ziggler lock up. Dolph with the headlock, hitting a shoulder block on The Miz. He goes for some more offense, but Miz monkey flips him onto the apron and grabs a toy lightsaber, which is no use for Dolph’s candy corn kendo stick! Both men on the outside now, and Dolph forces Miz to bob for apples! He sticks a jack o lantern on Miz, delivering a superkick and smashing the pumpkin off the former WWE Champion’s head! Miz turns things around, throwing Dolph into the announce table before tossing him into the ring. He grabs the kendo stick, smacking it on the knee of Ziggler! He goes to work on the knee, slamming it repeatedly against the steel post! Miz grabs a steel chair and slams it on Dolph’s knee, and looks to go for the Figure Four…but Ziggler rolls him up for the win!
Winner via pinfall: Dolph Ziggler
After the match, Tyler Breeze comes out to the ring to attack Dolph, who quickly fights back but can barely stand with the injured knee as Tyler lays into him with kicks and punches. Officials come out to break the fight up, but Tyler can’t help himself as he stomps away on the injured knee before taking a selfie with Summer Rae. Commentary talk about what happened on RAW as Paige apparently tried to patch things up with her teammates…before taking them both out with the Rampaige! She puts the PTO on Charlotte, finalizing what truly seems like the end of Team PCB. We see her walking backstage as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial, she and Natalya both make their way to the ring as an inset promo as Natalya saying that Paige will understand tonight why you don’t stab your friends in the back!
Paige vs. Natalya
Paige starts things off with a hard kick to Natalya’s face! She stomps on her, taunting the crowd all the while before going for the cover for a nearfall. Paige continues the assault on Natalya in the corner, laying into her with punches and stomps. She continues to taunt the crowd as she picks up Natalya, who reverses an Irish whip but gets kicked before hitting a clothesline and a German suplex! Suddenly, Sasha Banks and Team B.A.D. make their way out insulting Natalya, saying she’s always seeking attention…and she has their attention now! It’s enough of a distraction for Paige to hit the Rampaige for the win!
Winner via pinfall: Paige
Paige celebrates in the ring as Team B.A.D. continue to taunt Natalya before coming into the ring. They look to attack, and Tamina hits a superkick on Natalya as Team B.A.D. beat her down! Sasha locks Natalya in the Bank Statement and she is tapping out as Team B.A.D. show off before leaving the ring.
Commentary talk about the Face The Fear Challenge, as we know that Dean Ambrose and Cesaro will team up…but with whom? Up next, we’ll see what happened with the United States Championship Open Challenge…and how Alberto Del Rio made a big return!
Back from commercial, WWE hypes up the Susan G Komen campaign that is wrapping up. Backstage, Dean is getting ready for his match as Ryback looks to join up, because revenge is a dish best served cold. Dean says the Wyatts are savages, is Ryback ready to step on some toes? Ryback does not step on toes, he steps on necks. “Feed me more!” Dean says “he’ll do” as we go to ringside as Alberto Del Rio comes out to the stage with Zeb Colter, who says to cut the music. He says that we’re seeing is real, that Hell has not frozen over because this is not an illusion, this is not a mirage, you’re seeing a Real American sharing the stage with a great Mexican, Alberto Del Rrrrio! Why? Because Alberto is a hardworking individual, virtuous, something the crowd should be. He is the first citizen of a soon to be great nation of MexAmerica! The title we see around Del Rio’s waist is the United States title, but should represent the great of Mexico as well. So tonight, they’re ready to represent the great nation of MexAmerica, and the US Title is now the MexAmerican Championship! Del Rio is in action next as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial, R-Truth makes his way out to the ring to take on Alberto Del Rio as the match gets underway.
“MexAmerican Champion” Alberto Del Rio vs. “Champion of Our Hearts” R-Truth
The two men lock up, and R-Truth counters a whip into a back kick to the US…I mean, “MexAmerican” Champion. R-Truth is getting some momentum with a kick and a gourdbuster into a cover for a nearfall. Del Rio turns things around, taunting as he goes up to the top before R-Truth catches him wit a right hand. They fight on the top rope but Del Rio stomps Truth down hard for the win!
Winner via pinfall: Alberto Del Rio
Del Rio celebrates with the title, Zeb applauding from ringside and shaking Alberto’s hand as we go backstage. “Boo Dallas” finally gets the scare on someone…and it’s Mark Henry, who lays the “ghost” out with a fist to the face! We cut to the ring, as Dean Ambrose makes his way to the ring as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial, Cesaro makes his way out next followed by Ryback. The Wyatt Family make their way out as the “fireflies” are out in full force in the arena. Luke, Rowan, and Braun get on the apron as we start the match.

Braun is in control as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial, it’s now Rowan taking down Ryback before tagging in Luke, who hits a senton on Ryback for a nearfall.

Harper is struggling, rolling through but Cesaro still has it locked in until Braun drags Cesaro out! Dean launches himself into Strowman, followed by Ryback who brings Braun over the announce table! Meanwhile, Cesaro hits Harper with a crossbody for a nearfall, before going right back for the crossfire. Rowan breaks it up, but gets hit by Ambrose who is then taken out by Harper. Cesaro hits a corkscrew uppercut on Harper before going for the Big Swing. He’s interrupted by Strowman, before being taken out with a right hand by Bray and a lariat by Harper for the win!
