New Samoa Joe Feud, EC3 & HW in Dark Matches, More SD Call-Ups

Samoa Joe had been feuding with Jeff Hardy but it looks like his new feud could be with Mustafa Ali. Joe vs. Ali was set to take place on last night’s episode of SmackDown LIVE but Joe destroyed Ali before the bell and kept coming back to deliver more ringside punishment. Joe later said this that was a statement and he would do the same to any man who entered The Royal Rumble. Below is a video from the segment:

The dark matches that took place before last night’s episode of SmackDown LIVE from The Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama went on the air saw EC3 defeat Aiden English & Heavy Machinery (Tucker Knight & Otis Dozovic) defeat The Colons (Primo & Epico).

EC3 also appeared in a backstage segment on last night’s SmackDown. He was shown posing in front of a mirror as Joe walked to the ring for the angle with Ali. Nikki Cross also appeared in a backstage segment last night, acting crazy behind a fence as Rey Mysterio walked to the ring for his loss to Andrade.
As previously reported, Lacey Evans & Heavy Machinery also appeared in backstage segments on last night’s SmackDown. Tucker & Otis did a backstage segment with Becky Lynch & The New Day, while Evans was shown watching Becky’s win over Peyton Royce from backstage, with a drink in her hand.
The call-ups from NXT are appearing on both RAW & SmackDown LIVE until they sign with one of the brands. Last Monday night’s RAW saw brief appearances by EC3, Heavy Machinery & Evans, while Cross teamed with Bayley & Natalya for a win over The Riott Squad. There is no word yet on Lars Sullivan’s debut. WWE had teased him for a possible SmackDown appearance but that never happened.
Below are shots of EC3 & Cross backstage, along with the shots of Evans & Heavy Machinery for those who missed them:
