A wheelchair-bound Sami Zayn kicked off the show, still reeling under the brutal assault inflicted on him by Brock Lesnar on last week’s episode. He said the betrayal hurt him more than the physical. Paul Heyman cut in and apologized to fans for subjecting Zayn’s complaints. As the two continued their chatter, Lesnar made his way to the ring to tease that Heyman is about to return as his attorney. Their impassioned diatribes gave way to The Beast beating the medics, then Zayn, culminating in an F-5.
As WWE built up into Day 1 pay-per-view, RAW Tag Team Champions Randy Orton and Riddle battled The Usos and New Day’s King Woods and Kofi Kingston in a blockbuster triple threat tag match. In another highly anticipated fight, Naomi and Sonya Deville traded hostilities again on Friday night, as did SmackDown women’s champions Charlotte Flair and Toni Storm.
Here are the results and highlights from the December 10 episode of WWE SmackDown:

Drew McIntyre to Sheamus: The Scottish Superstar defeated Sheamus via pinfall after a Claymore. Before the match, McIntyre confronted Adam Pearce and tucked Angela into his desk in response to being left out of the Black Friday Battle Royal two weeks ago.
