Ups & 4 Downs From Last Night's WWE SmackDown (Jan 30)

WWE Top 10 takes you back to this week's SmackDown LIVE to revisit the show's most thrilling, physical and controversial moments.

And the growing rift between the two was not helped when it was confirmed they will go head to head on next week's episode for the right to face Styles for his WWE title at the Fastlane pay-per-view.

After an absolutely incredible Royal Rumble, which featured a huge win for Shinsuke Nakamura in the men's rumble.

This eventually evolved into a shouting match that allowed Styles to shove Owens into Zayn and roll up Owens for a near fall. A tag team bout between the faces and heels, with another match scheduled for next week: Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens to decide who'll face AJ Styles for the gold at the Fastlane event. The victor of the match would determine who would get the opportunity to challenge Bobby Roode for the United States Title. Rusev and Roode will square off for the title next Tuesday. According Roode on commentary, the victor of this match will challenge for the US Title next week.

Fatal Four Way: Rusev defeated Kofi Kingston, Zack Ryder, & Jinder Mahal to become the #1 Contender to the US Title. You can check out a review of last week's WWE Smackdown here...

The Bludgeon Brothers vs.

Zayn twice abandoned Owens during that contest, and it was during his second absence that KO fell victim to a Kinshasa knee strike which secured his team's defeat.

Unsurprisingly, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan destroy the "competition", pinning Rory Gulak (Drew Gulak's brother) to pick up an easy win.

How will Ronda Rousey's arrival affect the women of Team Blue? However, she is interrupted by the Riott Squad before she can even say anything. She looks to hit Flair with a big boot as she is getting up, but she accidentally hits the ref and sends him flying out of the ring.

Tye Dillinger was defeated by Baron Corbin.

Hard luck for both Baron Cornin and Tye Dillinger, as neither man managed to earn a coveted win at the Royal Rumble on Sunday. Though if you're interested, Corbin was the victor of the match with Tye Dillinger. Elsewhere, Charlotte Flair addressed the women's division following their historic first Rumble, while Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin looked to rebound from their crushing PPV loss. There's still big things in their future when the feud between the Usos and Gable and Benjamin wraps up. AJ pushes Owens into Sami, knocking him to the floor, and Sami really leaves this time. Not just that, due to the controversial end to their title bout at Royal Rumble, Zayn and Owens would get another opportunity by facing off against one another next week on SmackDown LIVE with the victor going on to face Styles for the title at WWE Fastlane. Owens is known to turn on his friends so if he loses, he could snap again and he and Zayn could go back to being enemies. Since Shinsuke Nakamura won the Royal Rumble, you won't keep Owens and Zayn in the main event scene.
