This week’s episode of SmackDown Live once again had two post-show dark matches, with one current Champion pulling double duty Tuesday night.

The first match saw Ali once again going up against the former 205 Live Star Buddy Murphy, who was drafted to SmackDown Live during Superstar Shakeup but hasn’t made his debut for the brand yet.This same match took place before last week’s episode of SmackDown Live as well and just like the previous week, Ali was able to defeat Murphy in this bout as well.

The second match took place after the show went off air and it saw the current SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley pulling double duty.

She had wrestled Nikki Cross in a match at the show earlier in the night and she went on to defend her title against Charlotte Flair after the show was over. Bayley was able to defend her title successfully in this bout and she defeated the queen to retain the championship.

Though since she lost her earlier match with Cross, Bayley will still defend her title against Alexa Bliss at Extreme Rules in a rematch from Stomping Grounds. You can check out the match card for the show here.
