WWE SmackDown Results (June 21, 2024)

CM Punk is kicking off the show live in his hometown.

Punk reminded fans that back in 2011 at Money in the Bank he promised to walk away with the WWE Championship and that's exactly what he did.

Punk said he planned on burying Drew McIntyre's career six feet under, but he didn't think it would be this easy. He said McIntyre took his ball and went home.

Paul Heyman ended up interrupting Punk, and we have ourselves a reunion.

Heyman said he means what he said when he called Punk a close friend. Fans chanted "We want Roman."

Punk asked an emotional Heyman if he was okay and the two hugged.

He said that Solo Sikoa is "pissed off" because he heard on the radio that Chicago is Punk's town. Heyman warned Punk that if he doesn't leave SmackDown The Bloodline is going to go after him.

The Bloodline then made their way out. Sikoa grabbed a microphone and said if Punk wants to be on SmackDown he has two options.

The first one is paying his respect to The Bloodline, the second, is making sure he never gets cleared to wrestle again.

Heyman asked Punk to take him with him if he leaves SmackDown. He said he acknowledges that he sees two "fake ass Usos" and a cosplay Tribal Chief.

The Bloodline entered the ring, but Cody Rhodes entered the ring with two baseball bats, giving one to Punk. Rhodes grabbed the mic and said he's already beaten one "Head of the Table."

Rhodes challenged Solo to a one-on-one match with no interference.

Cody Rhodes was walking backstage when he ran into Randy Orton and Kevin Owens. Orton asked Rhodes if he was sure he wants to face Solo alone.

Santos Escobar marched down to the ring. Knight said he didn't asked for him he asked for Logan Paul.
