CM Punk Finds Friends and Enemies in Return to WWE Smackdown

CM Punk returned home to Chicago last night on Smackdown. He made a new friend but got wiped out by an old enemy.

Punk started the show by addressing his adoring fans but was interrupted by his former manager, Paul Heyman. He warned Punk to leave before he was attacked by The Bloodline, which is now led by Solo Sikoa.

Sure enough, the Samoan gang showed up, but WWE champion Cody Rhodes came to the rescue with a pair of baseball bats.

Later in the night, Drew McIntyre showed up, revealing that he had attacked Punk outside the building. He dumped Punk into the ring, leaving him to be taken to the hospital.

So when McIntyre said he “quit” on Monday night, maybe he was just quitting Raw, and his rivalry with Punk will continue on Smackdown.


Three more wrestlers qualified for the Money in the Bank ladder matches. Chelsea Green scored the upset over Bianca Belair and Michin. Belair hit the Kiss Of Death (KOD) on Michin, but Green stole the pin.

Carmelo Hayes scored his biggest win on the Smackdown roster by defeating Randy Orton and Tama Tonga in an MITB qualifier. Hayes pinned Orton with a rollup.

Andrade also qualified with a win over Kevin Owens and Grayson Waller. He hit The Message DDT on Waller for the win. Andrade also recently won the Speed title (quick matches on Twitter), so he is doing well since returning from AEW.


The main event was Cody Rhodes vs. Solo Sikoa, with the Bloodline running in for a disqualification. Kevin Owens and Randy Orton came out to even the score, but then Jacob Fatu showed up.

The former Major League Wrestling (MLW) champion wiped out all of the heroes, including diving off the top rope and putting Rhodes through the announcers’ table.

Now that’s how you make a debut.
