WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: A CONTRACT SIGNING, THE KEVIN OWENS HIGHLIGHT REEL, STYLES VERSUS MAHAL, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-05-16 21:58:00

We are back and Shane McMahon makes his way to the ring for the Biggest Contract Signing in the History of Contract Signings.

Shane says he feels Smackdown is WWE's premier brand.  One of the major reasons is their women's division.  We will have some of the most athletically gifted women in a Six Women Tag Match.  Shane brings out Natalya, Carmella, and Tamina and they are joined by James Ellsworth.

Shane then brings out Naomi, Charlotte Flair, and Becky Lynch.

Shane gives Natalya the floor.  She says it is so funny to see you pretending to be BFFs.  When she looks across the ring, one word comes to mind . . . pathetic.  She tells Becky she had the chance to join them and it is too late.  She says she cannot wait to say I told you so.  It will be no different on Sunday when they prove they are the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be.

Natalya signs the contract follwoed by Tamina and Carmella..

Becky says she was given the chance, but there was no chance in hell she would join the goon squad.  She is looking forward to taking care of all three of you.  She signs the contract.

Naomi tells them to stop focusing on the last few weeks, they better worry about Sunday when they are going to snatch all three of you.  She signs the contract.

Charlotte says you have had an issue with her since she came to Smackdown.  You moaned and complained and created your Babysitter Club.  Bring it all to Chicago because they will solve all of your problems.  After they are done on Sunday, the Queen is coming for her crown.  Charlotte signs the contract.

Ellsworth interrupts Shane and he has something to say.  He says he appreciates him helping a brother out.  He says that Becky longingly glazes at her but he would prefer to put some water on her straight fire because she has no chance in hell.  He tells Charlotte she has no chance to be her King because she is the Prince to the Princess.  James says Carmella will stop her flow, take the title and steal her glow.  

Naomi grabs Ellsworth and Carmella slams her head onto the table.

Shane tells Carmella that she will face Naomi.

We go to commercial.
