WWE SmackDown: Major title change on 1000th anniversary episode

Sky Sports | Updated: 2018-10-17 15:46:45

The Bar become five-time champions

Sheamus and Cesaro are once again in possession of a WWE tag-team championship after a bizarre and tainted victory over The New Day.

The match had been to the same high standards consistently set by these two teams when the Bar cleared the commentary desk - behind which sat Booker T and Jerry Lawler - with bad intentions on their minds.

What they could not expect, however, was the arrival of The Big Show, who inexplicably chokeslammed Kofi Kingston - who was not involved in the match - through said commentary table.

That was enough of a distraction for Big E to eat a huge Brogue Kick from Sheamus, who picked up the pin and the championship gold.

Rey Mysterio mad his return to WWE to battle Shinsuke Nakamura for the final spot in the World Cup

Mysterio's debut ends in victory

Rey Mysterio will form part of the World Cup tournament at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia on November 2 after dispatching Shinsuke Nakamura in a qualifying match.

The competitors traded near-falls in a contest which lived up to its pre-match anticipation and in which Mysterio showed he remains in excellent fighting condition following his return to WWE.

He collected the win with his trademark 619 and springboard splash combination to advance to the tournament in Riyadh.

Edge welcomed Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair to a very intense SmackDown 1000 edition of The Cutting Edge

Edge fails to get through to Lynch

In a special edition of the Cutting Edge, the host attempted to convince Becky Lynch not to continue down her path of darkness, saying he had made the same mistakes on his journey to the top and had "stained his soul" as a result.

Her response took her newly-acquired nastiness to a new level, citing Edge's career-ending injury as she ordered him to leave her ring.

That brought out Charlotte Flair, who speared the champion to spark a pull-apart brawl.

Watch the repeat of SmackDown 1000 in full at 10pm on Sky Sports Action HD tonight.
