The WWE Smackdown Live show on Tuesday, August, 22, 2017, took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. It also saw the debut of Bobby Roode, who lost his NXT Championship to Drew McIntyre on Saturday night.

Roode defeated Aiden English. Roode used the Glorious DDT to get the pinfall win.

The Usos, who won the Smackdown Live Tag Team Championship belts on Sunday against The New Day, defeated Hype Bros. Jimmy Uso hit Zack Ryder with a superkick to get the win.

Then, in a handicap match, Shinsuke Nakamura defeated The Singh Brothers. Nakamura got one of the brothers to tap out, before Jinder Mahal jumped Nakamura.

Instead of being triple-teamed, Nakamura got the edge and hit Mahal with the Kinshasa.

Naomi and Becky Lynch defeated Carmella and Natalya. Instead of cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase, Natalya attacked Carmella after losing her patience with her tag team partner.

While Nattie was outside of the ring, Naomi, who lost the belt on Sunday at SummerSlam to Nattie, hit the split-legged moonsault on Carmella for the win.

Then, in the main event, AJ Styles defeated Kevin Owens. This is reportedly was the last time that Owens could face Styles while he was the United States Champion.

Baron Corbin was initially the special guest referee. However, Shane McMahon was displeased with his efforts and caused Corbin to leave the scene after throwing his referee shirt at McMahon.

McMahon saw Owens hit Styles with a low blow and stopped Corbin from counting a three-count. McMahon then put on the shirt and continued the match. Styles would hit The Phenomenal Forearm and got the win to keep his belt.
