SmackDown Live held a big free show last night featuring 3 championship matches and the return of John Cena to challenge AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble show. In the championship matches, Styles retained his championship in the main event defeating Dolph Ziggler & Baron Corbin, Alexa Bliss retained her championship with help from a second, mystery La Luchadora, and American Alpha won the 4-way elimination match to win the SmackDown Tag Team Championships. Just when you think they’re going to make the Wyatt Family a dominant force…they drop the titles in under a month.
