Below are the complete results from tonight’s “Tribute To The Troops” edition of SmackDown.

– SmackDown kicked off with The War & Treaty doing a rendition of God Bless America.

– Santos Escobar def. Dragon Lee in the United States Championship #1 Contenders Tournament

NXT North American Champion Dominik Mysterio came out to watch this match, as he’ll face Dragon Lee tomorrow night at NXT Deadline.

– Randy Orton questioned SmackDown General Manager Nick Aldis why he’s teaming up with LA Knight tonight, as he doesn’t even know who LA is. Aldis said LA made the save for Orton last week, Orton said he didn’t need to be saved. Nick said the bottom line is both of them want The Bloodline, so that’s the reason. Orton also paid a fine to Aldis for RKOing him last week. Nick said the fine was $50,000, so why is Orton paying $100,000? Orton said the other $50,000 is for the next time.

– Cody Rhodes paid tribute to the troops.

– Bobby Lashley def. Karrion Kross (with Scarlett) in the United States Championship #1 Contenders Tournament

– Bayley apologized to Damage CTRL backstage for last week. They told him to stay backstage tonight.

– CM Punk came out and said he’s not going to get his time cut tonight. Punk said Adam Pearce is trying to sign him to RAW and the SmackDown crowd booed. Punk asked fans if they want him to sign with RAW and the fans booed. Punk asked if he should sign with SmackDown and they cheered.

Punk then asked if the fans want to see him throw 29 men over the top rope and main event WrestleMania, and the fans cheered.

He then asked fans if he should talk about Roman Reigns, and the fans lost their mind. Punk said he acknowledges The Tribal Chief and then said:

“Don’t forget who the OG Paul Heyman guy is.”

Punk said Heyman was his Wise Man before Roman’s. He then asked if he should talk about Kevin Owens. He says he wouldn’t feel comfortable working with Owens, a guy who randomly punches people backstage, who does that? (Poking fun at his backstage fights in AEW).

He said there’s one guy in WWE who’s not happy to see him back. He’s referring to Seth Rollins, but didn’t take his name. Punk said this guy isn’t even ‘The Man’ in his own household.

Punk ended his promo by saying that everyone is talking about finishing their story. He said he’s back to finish his story – main event WrestleMania.

– CM Punk met Kevin Owens backstage. Punk asked Owens if he knows where Nick Aldis’ office is. Owens said nope. Punk said thanks and moved on. Owens wasn’t pleased to see Punk.

– Cody Rhodes met CM Punk in Aldis’ office and wished him luck in trying to finish his story.

– Asuka def. Charlotte Flair with help from Bayley

Charlotte got injured during this match and had to be helped to the back:
