WWE Smackdown Results from the night

Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair vs. Zelina Vega & Carmella- Belair and Carmekka started the proceedings and ut was a quick tag from Belair just before she dropped kick Carmella. Sasha was in the back seat once she got the tag. Carmella worked pretty well on Sasha to be on the top. Carmella tagged Zelina and the two ladies went for a combined suplex on Sasha before Binaca helped her tag partner and the two hit a dropkick on Zelina & Carmella to take them outside the ring. Outside, Bianca picked up Sasha on her head and threw her on Carmella & Zelina to humble them further.

After the commercial, Zelina, and Binaca were in the ring with the women’s champion in a cryptic lock from Zelina. Bianca was in pain but she somehow broke the pin and tagged Banks in. Banks completely changed the momentum of the match by hitting the famous “3 Amigos” of the late Eddie Guerrero.

In the closing moments, Zelina escaped a top turnbuckle fog splash pin from Banks and tagged Carmella in. Banks hit her or the back and went for a vintage Banks Statement to end the match.

After the match ended, something expected happened. Sasha Banks hit Bianca with a backstabber and ambushed an attack on the Smackdown Women’s Champion before placing the Banks Statement on the champion twice to close off the night.

Edge is in the ring- As Edge was making his way to the ring, Rollins attacked him from behind, All this took place during the commercial. Rollins was furious with what happened last week and hit him on the head with a television camera.

After taking down the Rated-R Superstar, a furious Rollins was inside the ring and screamed out loud that Edge has always taken his opportunity. Rollins cost Edge the Universal Title and said that he is proud of what he has done to Edge. Rollins said that he is the rightfully deserved man for the Universal Championship, and if he can’t get the title, neither will Edge.



Shinsuke Nakamura, Cesaro, & Big E vs. Dolph Ziggler, Robert Roode & Appollo Crews- Crews & Big E started the proceedings, and Mr. Money in the Bank took no time in hitting a belly-to-belly suplex to the Intercontinental Champion. However, Big E was caught outside by Roode & Ziggler who placed a spine buster to floor Big E.

After the commercial, Big E tagged in Cesaro while Ziggler was inside the ring. After punching Ziggler in the face, Xesaro went for the famous ‘Cesaro Swing’ and put him into a ‘Sharp Shooter.’ Cesaro then tagged in King Nakamura who continued working on Ziggler until Ziggler tagged Crews in.

Momentum shifted once Crews was in. He worked on Nakamura and did everything perfectly until Rick Boogs played the guitar to distract the Intercontinental Champion. Boogs was taken care of by Commander Azeez but that distraction was enough for Nakamura to hit a Kinshasa and pick up a victory over Crews.

Backstage- Paul Heyman was furious to see Cena’s sign on the contract. Paul complains this to Adam Pearce, but Pearce tells him he is happy with the contract signing. Sonya was there as well and she tells Paul on his face that Roman Reigns will defend the Universal Title against John Cena 3 weeks from now at WWE Summerslam.


Contract signing of Finn Balor & Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship Match at WWE Summerslam- It is time for the Summerslam contract signing. Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce are in the ring to officiate the process Finn Balor was determined while entering the ring, while Roman Reigns entered the ring, it seemed like he wasn’t serious about Finn Balor as a challenger.

The two men sat down on their respective chairs and Adam Pearce tells both of them to re-check the contract. While all this was happening, WWE Universe was chanting “Cena.” Roman tried provoking Finn Balor against Cena by saying that Cena thinks you are not close to him.

Roman looked brutal and carefree while addressing Finn Balor. He said if you sign this contract, I will thrash you at WWE Summerslam and send you back to NXT. After some chants of “Roman sucks” Roman Reigns signed the contract. When it was Balor’s time to sign the contract, Corbin came out of nowhere and attacked Balor in ambush. He took him out at the announce table and threw him in the timekeeper area.

Corbin tried signing the contract, but Cena came running down the aisle and beat the hell out of Corbin to grab the contract and sign it to set a date with Roman Reigns and WWE Summerslam. While John Cena signed the contract, Roman looked furious as hell, but the poor guy couldn’t do anything about it.


Backstage- Sonya Deville announces the main event of the night. It will be Zelina Vega & Carmella vs. Bianca Belair & Sasha Banks



WWE 24/7 Championship: Reginald vs. Chad Gable- Oh Boy! Reginald is stunned! We are stunned! Regi’s opponent is a beast of a man- Otis? Not really- it is Chad Gable. Before the match could have started, Otis attacked Reginald before letting him know that Gable will fight him. The two men started off, and Gable dominated the proceedings. Reginald didn’t have any offense to show, but he was escaping a lot of them.

In the closing moments, just as Reginald bounced upon Gable to pin the latter, Otis interrupted and threw Regi outside the ring, however, Regi landed on his feet and retained his title with a DQ victory.

Backstage- Reginald gets interviewed, where he is asked about his match tonight. He tells he is happy to be a 24/7 Champion, and he is ready to defend the title against anyone. Reginald will be defending his title next against an unknown opponent.



Smackdown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair in the ring for an interview- Kalya Braxton congratulates her for her 110 days reign as the Smackdown Women’s Champion. Bianca was pretty happy telling about her title reign until Carmella interrupted her.

Carmella walked down the aisle and demanded one more match against the champion for the title. Surprisingly Zelina Vega also came out there and interrupted the scene. She first told Carmella that she doesn’t deserve an opportunity and then asked Bianca to accept her challenge as she deserves to be the Smackdown Women’s Champion.

Bianca accepted her challenge before a brawl erupted and Zelina Vega and Carmella teamed up to ambush attack on Bianca. As they were mercilessly pounding Bianca, Sasha Banks music hit and The Boss made a surprising return on Friday Night Smackdown to save Bianca Belair and hugged her to put an end to the segment.



Jimmy Uso vs. Rey Mysterio- A determined Jimmy Uso took down Rey early. He looked good until a Hurricana humbled him followed by a running bulldog. Jimmy came back with an offense by driving Rey spine first on the top turnbuckle. Before we go into the commercial, both men were outside the ring with Jimmy Uso standing tall.

After the commercial, the two men were inside the ring. Rey hit a vicious kick on the side of the head to Jimmy and went for a cover. However, Jimmy kicked out at 2. The two men climbed the top turnbuckle for a superplex, but Rey pushed Jimmy down and jumped on him with a Swanton.

In the closing moments, Rey set Jimmy for a 619, but Jey Uso distracted him twice. Finally, Rey hit a 619 on Jey before a top-rope dive on the twin brothers. He then rolled up Jimmy for a pin with some assistance from his son Dominic, giving a glimpse from the last two occasions when Jey did the same to help Jimmy pick up twin victories.

John Cena kicked off the night- John Cena is in the ring to kick off Friday Night Smackdown.

John Cena addresses the WWE universe and says tonight is a contract signing between Finn Balor and Roman Reigns and why the latter always sucks. He said Roman sucks because of the reason he rejected his challenge. Roman rejected the challenge just because I am the same John Cena for decades.

He adds that Roman Reigns changes himself every two years because you people don’t really care about him, You need a change in character because people don’t give a damn about you. As Cena was speaking, surprisingly Baron Corbin made his way to the ring interrupting Cena.

Cena didn’t figure out Corbin initially but as he came closer to the ring, Cena identified him and said, “You are Baron Corbin, but you look horrible.” Even Corbin acknowledged the fact that yes, he looks horrible. A depleted Corbin asked for help from Cena and said please help him as he has lost everything.

John Cena gave him a few dollars but that didn’t please Corbin. The latter said that he expected something better from a Hollywood Star, just a few dollars aren’t going to do anything good to him, maybe a role in his upcoming flick “Suicide Squad.” The two continued their altercation and Corbin rubbished about Cena more before the Leader of Cenation hit an “Attitude Adjustment” on Corbin as a gift.
