Randy Orton and Jeff Hardy booked their places for the World Cup at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view with wins on SmackDown last night.

The duo join John Cena - who is a wildcard entry for the competition - and Kurt Angle, who won an international battle royal on Raw this week.

Orton defeated The Big Show in his first WWE match for more than a year with a thumb to the eyes and RKO, while Hardy saw off the challenge of Samoa Joe to progress.

Joe went into the match carrying a knee injury from his defeat to AJ Styles at Super Show-Down and it proved costly as the referee stopped the match because he was unable to stand up.

Flair and Lynch turn up the brutality

Becky Lynch went into last night's title defence against Charlotte Flair knowing an intentional disqualification was not an option to her, and such an outcome would lead to a championship loss.
