While interruptions and attacks are normal things in a WWE match, this week’s SmackDown episode took it to a whole lot another level. Apart from the post-match attacks, there also were ‘invasions’ from RAW superstars to promote the Superstar Shakeup next week. Let’s list up all of those incidents:

  • In the opening segment itself, the Bar came out to interrupt the New Day during Kofi’s title celebration and brought out Drew McIntyre as their partner.
  • After the first match of the night(6-men tag team match), Randy Orton, who was not in the match, hit an RKO out of nowhere on (Mustafa) Ali.
  • If that was not enough, when Rusev came back into the ring to mock over Ali, he was also hit by a stunner from Kevin Owens.
  • Samoa Joe attacked R Truth to show his dominance once again.
  • Joe, in turn, was attacked by Braun Strowman to promote the Superstar Shakeup.
  • Lars Sullivan attacked the Hardy Boyz after they won the SmackDown Tag Team Championship titles.
  • Lacey Evans hit Becky Lynch with a stiff right hand from behind.
  • Sami Zayn came out to interrupt the main event match even before it could start. However, he went back without even saying or doing anything.
