PLAY BY PLAY

WWE and SmackDown mourn the loss of Jon Huber, aka Luke Harper.

 

Roman Reigns heads to the ring!

The Tribal Chief, his Special Counsel, Paul Heyman, and cousin Jey Uso are all here, and still holding onto the Universal Championship. Jey made sure Kevin Owens didn’t bring that title home as a Christmas present, and as advertised, the Head of the Table is here to make a special request in regards to the title and Kevin Owens. Heyman fetches the microphone for Roman, and Roman says “as the face of the WWE, let me start by saying Happy New Year. And as I thought about it, 2020 was rough. It’s been a tough year. But when you’re the Head of the Table, when you’re the Tribal Chief, you make it work.”

Roman asks Jey, “Why do you think I wear the gold glove? Because everything I touch turns into greatness.” Look at who he has around him. Special Counsel, Paul Heyman, who was discarded and thrown out, but Roman saved him. Roman doesn’t understand it. Heyman is “the most genuine, honest man” that Roman has done business with. And then there’s Jey Uso. “He’s a prime example of what I can do. What did I say? All you got to do is listen to me. All you got to do is understand how my brain works, and why I do what I do, and what’s happened? It’s been the best year of your career, has it not?” Main event Jey, barn burner after barn burner, Jey can’t miss because he ACKNOWLEDGE Roman as Head of the Table.

Roman did all of this because he knows who Jey is. Roman understood “since day one.” To everyone else, it was like, ‘Which one are you?” To Roman, he’s always been Main Event Uso. Roman wouldn’t put the pressure on Jey if he didn’t think he could handle it. And what happened? Jey knocked it all out of the park, just like he knew he could. But then KEVIN OWENS appears!! Roman has the music shut off and tells Kevin not to say anything because they don’t want to hear it. Why is Kevin here? No one wants to see him anymore! He’s like a roach that won’t die and keeps begging for crumbs.

Kevin had his time, was on the Island of Relevancy, was a social media sweetheart for a few weeks, and now he needs to leave. Roman helped Kevin get that big payday, so he better use it well. Hopefully Kevin gave his family a good Christmas, but that’s it. They’re done, Roman doesn’t want anything to do with Kevin because he’s just an embarrassment. “It ain’t about you!” Tonight is about Jey Uso and the family! “Get it through your thick head!” No one cares anymore, Kevin, stop being selfish.

Kevin doesn’t go, and instead responds with, “You’re right, me standing out here is embarrassing to you, and it should be.” Why? Because Kevin standing here right now, despite Roman still being champion, means he and his family failed. What has Roman tried to do at TLC and then in a steel cage? He has tried to end Kevin’s career, yet here he is. Roman should be embarrassed that Jey had to physically drag Kevin off ladder after ladder, and then handcuff him in the cage. Roman should be embarrassed because Kevin here now makes it 100% clear is that the Big Dog is gone and he’s just been replaced by a Big BITCH!

But it’s good to see Roman celebrating. Kevin and Roman don’t want anything to do with each other, because Kevin wants to make it about cousin Jey! Kevin is here to fight Jey Uso! But for everything they’ve done to Kevin, Kevin will make Jey pay. Kevin is going backstage and isn’t asking but demanding that he fights Jey Uso, and when he’s done with Jey, Roman’s family will have nothing to celebrate. Mic drop! Will Kevin #JustKeepFighting until he’s gotten even with the entire Bloodline?

 

Big E VS King Corbin w/ The Knights of the Lone Wolf!

The NEW WWE Intercontinental Champion is ready to blaze a trail in 2021! Will he make the Lone Wolf King #ThinkBig on the first SmackDown of the new year?

SmackDown returns as Corbin makes his entrance, with Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake behind him. Sami Zayn is on commentary with his two Sami Awards as Big E throws his jacket at him. Sami says there is a conspiracy as the bell rings. Big E and Corbin circle, tie up, and go around. Big E puts Corbin in a corner but Corbin turns it around. Big E powers out but Corbin headlocks, only for Big E to power out again. Corbin rams Big E with a shoulder but Big E stays up, and swivels the hips.

Corbin runs again, Big E throws him out and runs, but into a KNEE! Sami is loving this as Corbin runs in, only for Big E to dodge. Corbin slides out, slide sin, but into a scoop and BIG ENDING! Cover, but Sami attacks!!

Winner: Big E, by disqualification

Well Big E looked to be winning anyway, but the sore loser former champion just handed it to him! And then the Knights of the Lone Wolf attack Big E on Corbin’s behalf! They drag Big E up but Big E fights them off, only for Sami to sucker punch Big E! They stomp Big E 3v1 but here comes APOLLO CREWS! Apollo gets in, dumps Blake out HARD, then clotheslines Cutler out! Sami runs in but misses, for Apollo to trophy lift and TOSS Sami out onto the Knights! Apollo and Big E are fired up, is this going to turn into a tag match after the break, playa?

 

Big E & Apollo Crews VS Sami Zayn & Baron Corbin w/ the Knights of the Lone Wolf!

It has! And SmackDown returns as Apollo whips Sami corner to corner, only for Sami to reverse. Apollo goes up and over and dropkicks Sami down! Cover, TWO! Apollo stalks Sami to ropes, drags him up but Sami elbows him away. Tag to Corbin, and Corbin circles with Apollo. They tie up, Corbin kicks low then throws Apollo out. Apollo lands on the apron, shoulder sin then slingshots, but Corbin DECKS him with that right hand! Sami tags himself in because he’s going to pick the bones with haymakers. Apollo hits back, Sami knees low and throws more hands. Sami pushes Apollo into the corner and tags Corbin back in to mug Apollo.

Corbin whips Apollo corner to corner, runs in, but Apollo boots back! Corbin comes back to clothesline and down goes Apollo! Corbin throws Apollo out and takes a cheap shot at Big E, all to distract the ref as the Knights attack Apollo! The Knights get away with it, Corbin goes out to fetch Apollo into the ring, and Sami tags himself in again. Sami is getting on Corbin’s nerves but Sami drags Apollo up to throw him out again. Sami distracts the ref, but the Knights don’t do Sami’s dirty work, they do Corbin’s. Sami has to fetch Apollo and bumps him off the apron. Sami argues with the Knights, hurries back in to keep Apollo from Big E, and throws forearms.

Sami whips, Apollo reverses and scoops to POWERSLAM! Both men are down, fans fire up on their screens, hot tags to Big E and Corbin! Big E gets Corbin for an OVERHEAD! And then another OVERHEAD! And then a side Belly2Belly! Big E fires up, he runs and hits the BIG SPLASH! Big E claps it up, “New! Day Rocks!” Corbin is up, Big E scoops but Corbin slips out to shove. Big E dodges but runs into DEEP SIX! Cover, TWO! The Knights and Sami argue again, Corbin shouts at all of them to quit it, but Big E tags in! Apollo ROCKS Corbin and LARIATS! Apollo fires up, whips but Corbin DECKS him!

Tag to Sami, Corbin waistlocks but Apollo fires off elbows! Sami comes in, but Apollo dodges and the Helluva Kick almost gets Corbin! Sami stomps away but then Corbin argues with Sami. The Knights are with Corbin and Sami wants them all to calm down because they’re on the same team. But Corbin says nope, they’re leaving! Sami is all alone because of his ego, and Apollo gets Sami with an enziguri! And then the CREWS MISSILE!! Cover, Apollo wins!

Winners: Apollo Crews & Big E, by pinfall

A big win for Apollo and Big E, will this year be bigger than ever for the two of them?

 

Kevin Owens finds Adam Pearce.

Pearce ends his phone call to hear Kevin out. Kevin knows Pearce heard him earlier and Kevin will fight Jey somehow. But Pearce has been making matches so make a match for him. Pearce knows but what is he supposed to do? Pearce takes orders- From Heyman and Roman!? This is NOT the Adam Pearce Kevin’s known for over 15 years. This isn’t the one he fought with at the Philly Armory and all that. Is he serious? Kevin needs this! But Pearce can’t and Kevin knows why! But how about this? Anyone else but Jey! Fine, fine. Make it Roman.

Why is Kevin doing this to him!? Well Pearce used to be Kevin’s boss, and the ones he said that matter aren’t the ones back here, but out there watching! So Kevin guarantees the fans watching want to see Kevin beat Jey’s ass! And Pearce knows if roles were reversed, Pearce would want the same thing! Fine. But if Kevin wants Jey, he has his match. Happy? Yes. Thanks, boss. Kevin heads out, but will the consequences come down on Pearce for this?

 

Big E and Apollo talk backstage.

Big E appreciates Apollo helping out there, but then Kayla Braxton catches up to congratulate them on their victory tonight. But what can we expect from the Intercontinental Champion in 2021? Big E says fans all around the world, from Rome to Rochester, from Amandas to Nolans coming up to him, at a safe distance, showing him so much love! That is why much like the 1967 Toronto Maple Leaves, Big E will be a fighting champion! So next week, Big E issues an open challenge-

And Apollo already accepts! But it will be an honor to face Big E for the title that he technically helped Big E win. And think about this: Big E might not be so lucky without Apollo there to watch his back. The tension is strong but only for a second before the two laugh this off. But does Apollo have a point? And will he make it when he gives Big E his first defense of the new year?

 

The Riott Squad VS Billie Kay & ???

They say the third time is the charm, and that is what the Femme Fatale is hoping for this week. Her newest mystery partner is… Wait it’s just Tamina again. They tried this before, but can Billie and Tamina make it work out? Wait, here’s Natalya? Oh, Billie Kay is being ditched, and the second generation superstars are teaming up! Will the Queen of Harts and Daughter of Superfly be too much to handle with Billie in their corner?

The Riott Squad VS Natalya & Tamina w/ Billie Kay!

The teams sort out and Natty starts with Liv. They tie up, Natty headlocks but Liv powers out, only for Natty to run her over. Things speed up, Liv drops then hurdles but the hip toss is blocked. Liv blocks back, body shots and springboards to a wheelbarrow, to then victory roll and cover, TWO! Billie keeps shouting orders that might not even make sense, and Natty tells her to shut up while she shoves Liv down. Liv hurries away and tags Ruby! Tamina tells Billie to stop, but the Squad double dropkicks Natty! Tamina tags in and she circles with Ruby. Ruby throws forearms but Tamina barely flinches. Ruby dodges Tamina’s shots to hit back! Ruby runs, into an UPPERCUT!

Liv dodges Tamina, DECKS Natty but Tamina grabs Liv, only to get forearms! Liv fires off forearms and kicks, Tamina shoves but Ruby tags in. The Squad gets Tamina for a DOUBLE STO! Cover, TWO! Billie has… changed corners?! Is she on the Squad’s side now? Ruby tells her to stop and brings Tamina up. Tag to Liv, but Tamina pushes LIv away and SUPERKICKS Ruby! Ruby bails out, Billie talks trash and Tamina fireman’s carries Liv. Billie keeps coaching, Liv rolls Tamina up, the Squad wins!

Winners: The Riott Squad, by pinfall

Well, Billie ended up helping them after all. Billie cheers like she’s part of their team, but the Squad says thanks, but no thanks. Will Billie ever find where she fits in on SmackDown?

 

Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair VS BayMella w/ Reginald the sommelier!

Both teams were part of the big Christmas Triple Threat for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships, but The Boss and the EST were somewhat distracted by the Role Model and the Untouchable fluttering around ringside. Will the #LegitEST team get even with their respective rivals?

SmackDown returns as Bianca joins Sasha in the ring, followed by Bayley and her other best friend making their entrances. The teams sort out and Mella starts against Bianca. They circle but Mella dodges to adjust her ring gear. They approach again, Mella waistlocks but Bianca throws her down hard! Bianca brings Mella up, blocks the slap and makes it a knuckle lock. Bianca says uh-uh, and she lifts Mella right up! Mella scrambles away and tags out to Bayley, but Bayley gets a dropkick! Bianca eggs Bayley on, Bayley rushes in but Bianca throws her out! Mella runs in, she’s put on the apron and Bianca handspring kicks her down!

Mella stalks Bianca to a corner as she taunts Sasha, and Mella goes after the arm. The ref counts, Mella stops, but then pulls the arm again!

Mella lets off as the ref counts, then brings Bianca around to tag in Bayley. They mug Bianca, Bayley rolls her up, TWO! Bayley keeps Bianca down, drags her away, and chicken wings the arms. Fans rally on their screens, Bianca fights up but Bayley clubs her. Bayley goes to suplex but it’s Bianca who gets Bayley up and over! Bayley hurries and tags Mella in, and Mella clubs Bianca down! Mella talks trash, then sucker punches Sasha! Mella drags Bianca up, but Bianca cradles, TWO! Mella mule kicks low, then talks trash, “I’m the best, Bianca! Not you!” Bianca hits back but Mella clubs her. Mella gets a double wristlock but Bianca fights up to scoop! Mella slips out but Sasha tags in!

Sasha dares Mella to get cocky now, and the two tie up. Mella puts Sasha on the apron but Sasha shoulder sin then knees back! Sasha bumps Mella off buckles, then stands on Mella in the corner!

Jackknife cover, TWO! Sasha sees Reginald coming and SLAPS him! But Mella tilt-o-whirls and hits a FACEBUSTER! Cover, BayMella wins!

Winners: Bayley & Carmella, by pinfall

Carmella gets a pin off the SmackDown Women’s Champion, thanks to her surprisingly agile assistant! Does this mean Mella will get a second chance at becoming champion in the new year?

 

Roman Reigns hears the news about Kevin VS Jey.

And he’s not happy about it. “Everything I’ve done for this company, everything that I do, somebody still actually made that match. And that somebody, they don’t appreciate me.” Roman has Heyman give him the belt, and then Roman tells Heyman to go find that someone. Heyman heads out, and the cousins turn their attention back to the television screen. Will Jey teach Kevin and the rest of the WWE a lesson about appreciating the Tribal Chief?

 

Sonya Deville is backstage!

She lost to Mandy Rose and had to leave the WWE, but now she’s back? Is this the sign of something

 

The Street Profits are here!

Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford head to the ring, dressed for a party! Will 2021 bring the swag like nobody can after the break?

SmackDown returns and the Profits are ready~, ready~ for their New Year’s Day Smoketacular! It even has music and a graphic! They have a table with bottle service and something under a curtain. Before getting to the new year, real talk to 2020. It doesn’t have to go home but it has to get out of here! Hey, 2020 wasn’t all bad. What other tag team pulled off the trifecta by becoming Raw and SmackDown Team Championships? And they even beat the Tag Team GOAT in the NEW~ DAY~! And then TWO Slammy’s, one for Breakout and Tag Team Superstars of the year! And 2021 will be even bigger! Because here’s the big reveal! A big reveal? You ready~?

REVEAL! A drum set?! Dawkins gonna get his lunch table grind on. Dawkins can play! And now, it’s time for the Street Profits’ 2021 predictions! Now we all know that not everyone has the skills to become high class fashion designers. But in 2021, they predict their sophisticated “I Was Intercontinental Champion-shirt” will go on sale at WWE Shop and become the number one selling shirt of the year! Talk to ’em! Footage replays of when they revealed said shirt to Sami on the same night that he lost the title to Big E.

You get a prediction! You get a prediction! Et cetera. Prediction number two! The Simpsons ain’t even got predictions like the Profits! And Ford says that “for years,” Dolph Ziggler has been entertaining the masses and stealing the show, and even stealing HBK’s style, so in 2021, Ziggler will get a nickname he truly deserves: The Heart ACHE Kid. AKA, HAK. TALK TO ‘EM! But speaking of Ziggler, he and Robert Roode attack! SUPERKICK for Ford! Dawkins is sent through his drum set, and then into a SUPERKICK! The Dirty Dawgs mug Ford, push him and Dawkins around, and Roode grabs chairs from the timekeeper’s area.

Roode dares Dawkins to make a joke as he SMACKS him on the back! Then he throws Dawkins over the barriers! Ziggler puts Ford in a corner, and Roode SLAMS a leg into the post! And then they hold the leg against the steel steps, for a CHAIR SHOT!! “Now we’re having fun!” Roode SMACKS Ford’s leg again! Dawkins drags himself back over and goes to Ford, but Roode and Ziggler leave, sarcastically wishing them a Happy New Year. Will Roode and Ziggler make sure the Profits can’t even defend those SmackDown Tag Team Championships in 2021?

 

SmackDown returns as Kayla interviews Roode & Ziggler.

“What was the reason for that vicious and unprovoked attack?” Vicious? Sure. But unprovoked? C’mon. The “Cheap” Profits have been provoking them for months, and went so far as to say the “washed up” HBK to Ziggler! HBK is not on Ziggler’s level, but Roode is. It’s always fun and games with the Profits, but did they have fun out there tonight? That is on the Profits’ hands. They have something Ziggler & Roode want and deserve. The Profits strut around waving titles and trophies around, but do you want to know what champions look like? You’re looking at two pros, two aces, who do what they want and when they want. And what they want, and what they demand, is a rematch for their SmackDown Tag Team Championships. And they will not stop until they get what they want.

 

Daniel Bryan & Otis Dozovic w/ Chad Gable VS Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura!

The YES Movement is teaming up with the Alpha Academy to see what he can learn before jumping into the Royal Rumble! Will Bryan and the Blue Collar Brawler both be ready for the Swiss Cyborg and King of Strong Style?

The teams sort out and Cesaro starts with Bryan. They tie up, Cesaro headlocks and hits a takeover, but Bryan fights his way up.

Nakamura tags in, they mug Bryan and Nakamura snapmares to wrap on a chinlock. Bryan fights up to standing switch, and he uses that hip training to hit a mat slam! And another! Nakamura fights up, gets to ropes, and elbows free to tag Cesaro.

Nakamura goes in, covers, TWO!

Winners: Daniel Bryan & Otis Dozovic, by submission

Gable celebrates with his students, and they all cheer “YES! YES!” with the fans. And they do the Three Amigos, arm, arm, hips, THRUST!

 

Roman Reigns sits in his room.

Heyman tells Roman it was Adam Pearce who made Kevin VS Jey. “He just doesn’t get it, does he?” Roman looks to Jey, and Roman says “they” are trying to take everything the family has worked for. Don’t let them. “Go out and show them why you’re the Main Event Uso.” Jey nods and fist bumps Roman and heads out. Will the Samoan godfather be pleased with what Jey does to the Prizefighter?

Kevin Owens VS Jey Uso!

Once again in the main event, and once again battling Roman’s pawn. Will Kevin #JustKeepFighting until he’s gotten even with the Head of the Table?

Winner: Kevin Owens, by pinfall

Well that commercial break sure cut things short! But Kevin still dares Roman to show himself. Kevin stomps Jey’s leg more and hits another STUNNER! Kevin is making the point he warned everyone he’d make, but still no Roman. Jey writhes while Kevin goes out to get Corey Graves’ headset. “Roman, come take care of your family, bitch.” Kevin then goes to the ring, and brings out handcuffs!!

The ref tells Kevin to stop and Kevin unlocks the cuffs from the ropes, to put on Jey’s other wrist! Kevin drags Jey with a headlock and says if Roman won’t come here, they’ll go to Roman. Jey pushes Kevin away but Kevin pushes, and throws him into a ThunderDome screen! Kevin SUPERKICKS Jey onto a spare table, and then rips away coverings so he can climb. Kevin says this is on Roman! Kevin gets some space, but Roman attacks from behind the ThunderDome screens!

Roman throws Kevin into screens, into more screens, then throws haymakers! Roman shouts to Jey to hurry up, but Kevin fights back! Jey clobbers Kevin with cuffed hands, and the cousins drag Kevin up to the top level of the ThunderDome! They dump him over, stomp him down, and Jey finds chairs! Jey hands one to Roman, and the Bloodline JAMS Kevin with the chairs together! And again, and again! Roman SMACKS Kevin on the back, then digs the chair into Kevin’s head! “You should’ve just left!” Jey uses the cuffs to CHOKE Kevin, and Roman RAMS the chair into ribs over and over! And then he SMACKS Kevin down again!

Kevin staggers away to the edge, and he still kicks back! Jey SUPERKICKS Kevin, Roman ROCKS Kevin with a haymaker then throws him into more screens! Roman dribbles Kevin’s head off LEDs, then rains down furious fists! Roman gives Kevin one last whip into the screens! “This is MY company! Now you know!” Roman TOSSES Kevin off the edge, down through the tables!! The referees hurry to check on Kevin in the wreckage while Roman and Jey look down over them. Has the Head of the Table finally ended Kevin Owens’ fight? Will the Bloodline dominate the WWE then, now and forever?


My Thoughts:

What a great episode for SmackDown to follow up last week’s, and for the new year. Firstly, though nothing was said directly, there were great tributes to Jon Huber/Brodie Lee/Luke Harper throughout the night, such as many superstars wearing the black Brodie armband. And Big E cleverly put in all the references he could in his post match promo because he had one of the closest friendships with Huber. Big E had a good match with Corbin but it turned out to be a vehicle to get Sami Zayn and Apollo Crews involved. The tag match was really good, and I like that we’re getting Big E VS Apollo for the first Intercontinental Championship defense of both Big E’s reign and the new year. That is going to be a great match but I expect Big E to win. And perhaps Sami gets involved, too, but mostly Big E wins.

We got some good Women’s Tag matches tonight to strengthen SmackDown’s end of things. Billie Kay was pretty funny going back and forth between the teams after getting dumped by Tamina and Natty. Tamina and Natty should stick together as a team, mostly to fill out the Tag Division, but also because that is a great combination in itself. But Riott Squad of course takes the win as they are still the longest tenured team and were already poised for a tag title shot as it was. Banks & Bianca VS BayMella was a really good match, but Reginald was doing a lot of acrobatics just to distract Sasha, so I feel like Mella was slow to getting to her spot. BayMella gets a win to put the Faces against the ropes, so to speak, but that surely means Bianca and Sasha each get the better of Bayley and Carmella.

Sonya Deville making a return was oddly understated, but I think it worked. Everyone was confused because of the Loser Leaves WWE stipulation of Sonya’s grudge match with Mandy Rose, so it’ll be interesting to see how they kayfabe this. The Profits’ section was able to keep itself from being too much and too awkward, and the attack from Roode & Ziggler helped in that. That tag title match is going to be really good given the animosity now. The set-up to Bryan & Otis VS Cesaro & Shinsuke was an interesting one, but it was a very good match, and the Faces win to build momentum for Bryan towards the Rumble. I can’t be sure Bryan wins the Rumble if we’re going to focus on how he’s never won a battle royal type, but it’d be great story if he made it to the final two only to fall short, and then feuds with the other finalist.

We again got great stuff out of Roman, Jey and Kevin. Roman continues to do great on the mic as this new character of his, and it seems like he’s growing even more cold and sadistic. I’m not sure how Pearce will start being used in this, but it sure seems like WWE wants to use him as more than just the authority representative backstage. Kevin and Jey had a really good match, but it was rather surprising that the commercial break happened, we come back and Kevin finishes the match. But then we get that last bit of Kevin egging Roman on, beating up Jey, and then the Bloodline ganging up on Kevin to take him down. It might be a bit much for Kevin to recover from being thrown down onto tables like that, so maybe he’s being written off for a moment. Maybe the build to the Rumble brings Pearce into the story more, and then at the go-home, Kevin shows up and we get one more title match.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s WWE 205 Live Results & Report! (1/22/21)

And you thought last week was big!

Coverage 205 2021

205 Live doubles down on historic matches!

Not only are two 205 Live OG taking on a BRUTAL combination in Thatcher & Ciampa, but the WOMEN’S Dusty Cup comes to the purple ‘n’ orange!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Opening Round: The Way’s Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell VS Gigi Dolin & Cora Jade; The Way wins and advances.
  • Men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Opening Round: Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari VS Timothy Thatcher & Tommaso Ciampa; Thatcher & Ciampa win and advance.

PLAY BY PLAY

205 Live explains how a certain Dusty Cup match came to be.

It was on NXT that Ashante “Thee” Adonis was in a match with the cruel Karrion Kross. Kross showed no mercy to Adonis as he hit him with TWO Doomsday Saido Suplexes and the blindside forearm smash. Then he would show no mercy to Adonis’ tag partner, Desmond Troy, by wrapping him up in the Krossjacket submission! The damage done was too severe for either man to compete tonight, and now they’re OUT of the Dusty Rhodes Classic! However, there is a new team that has been formed.

The Professor of Pain and the Psycho Killer put each other through torture inside the Fight Pit, and in the end, they found respect for each other. They’re now a killer combination and having their tag team debut TONIGHT, in the tag team tournament! Will they put the Premier Athlete and Persian Lion through similar suffering, all for a shot at history and the NXT Tag Team Championships?

 

Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Opening Round: The Way’s Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell VS Gigi Dolin & Cora Jade!

How is this for history? 205 Live has its first-ever women’s match, and it is for this historic women’s tag team tournament! But will it be even more historic for the two debuting superstars? Or will Candice & Indi Wrestling dominate where the boys, Johnny & Austin, failed?

The teams sort out, Indi starts against Jade and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Indi throws Jade down. Indi says Jade is NOT #Impressive, but Jade hits back with body shots! Indi knees low, whips Jade to a corner but Jade dodges! Jade tags Gigi and Gigi dodges Indi for a BOOT! Jade BOOTS Indi, then Gigi runs in to spin and ROCK Indi with a forearm! Indi hits back, drags Gigi over and tags in Candice. Candice stomps Gigi down, brings her up and through the ropes to choke her. The ref counts, Candice lets off at 4 to then CLUB Gigi down. Candice stomps Gigi, taunts Jade, but misses the leg drop!

Gigi rams Candice to the corner, tags in Jade, and Jade runs corner to corner to SHINING WIZARD! Jade brings Candice around but Indi is in the way of her run. Candice CLOBBERS Jade then covers, ONE! Candice hammers away on Jade, dribbles her off the mat, and fans boo as Candice drags Jade up with a chinlock. Candice has a neck wrench, fans chant “You Still Suck!” but Jade fights her way up. Candice CLUBS Jade, whips her to the Way’s corner, then runs in for a back body block! Indi tags in and she taunts Gigi before hitting Jade with a forearm! Indi throws Jade down to cover, TWO!

Indi keeps on Jade with a cravat for the neck crank. Jade fights up, fans rally and Jade throws body shots. Jade whips, Indi reverses and scoops for a sidewalk slam! Cover, TWO! Indi keeps her cool, tags Candice, and Candice wrenches Jade to snapmare and chinlock. Candice digs her knee in but Jade endures. Fans rally, Jade fights up, throws more body shots, then breaks free to uppercut! Jade runs but wobbles, but she elbows Candice again! Jade baits Candice into her own corner, dodges, but Candice gets Jade’s leg! Jade kicks Candice away, hot tags to Indi and Gigi! Gigi didges, fires off on Indi, KICKS away on the leg, then kicks that leg out! BUZZSAW!

Gigi DECKS Candice for good measure before she BOOTS Indi down! Cover, TWO! Gigi snarls as she drags Indi up and clubs her on the back. Tag to Jade, they bring Indi around together to double suplex but Indi fights it off! Indi BOOTS Jade, kicks Gigi and reels Gigi in for a suplex of her own! Indi holds Gigi up for a count of 10 before the SLAM! Gigi bails out so Indi tags Candice. Candice runs into Jade’s roll up, TWO! Jade Oklahoma Rolls, TWO! Ghost pin, TWO!! Candice flounders up but gets around Jade to roll her up, TWO!! Indi tags in and kicks Jade to then back suplex SLAM! Cover, The Way wins!

Winners: The Way, by pinfall (advance to the next round)

Candice and Indi are making their way into the semifinals! But will Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter be in the way of The Way making history?

 

Men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Opening Round: Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari VS Timothy Thatcher & Tommaso Ciampa!

The Premier Athlete and Persian Lion have been here since day one of 205 Live, and were looking strong going into this match when it was against Adonis & Troy. But again, it has only been a couple days since NXT, are the Professor of Pain and Psycho Killer in any shape to face them on their home turf?

The teams sort out and Nese and Daivari seem to laugh at the two former enemies trying to be a team now. Daivari starts with Thatcher, they tie up and Daivari goes after an arm. Thatcher pries him off of that with a chinlock and then grinds into a headlock. Thatcher throws Daivari down, pulls on his head, but Daivari tries to pull hair. Thatcher just smiles that jagged tooth grin as he gets back up and goes after Daivari’s arm! Thatcher wrangles Daivari with a hammerlock, traps it with his legs then gets Daivari’s legs. Thatcher pulls Daivari into a Bow ‘n’ Arrow! Daivari endures, it becomes a cover, TWO!

Thatcher grabs at Daivari right away and has a facelock. Daivari endures, gets around, waistlocks, but Thatcher pries at the arm. Daivari tags Nese in, Nese rolls Thatcher up, TWO! Thatcher trips Nese and has the foot for a toe ‘n’ ankle. He shifts to a heel hook, then gets the arm but Nese scrambles around. Ciampa wants in, so Thatcher tags him in! Fans cheer as Ciampa wrenches Nese’s arm and drags him down. Nese resists the Fujiwara but Ciampa wrenches through again to a wristlock. Nese chinbars to get the arm, but Ciampa slips through to headlock. Nese throws Ciampa off but Ciampa headlocks and throws Nese down! Fans cheer as Ciampa grinds Nese into the mat.

Nese fights up, gets free to waistlock but Ciampa switches. Nese bucks Ciampa off, runs in and trips Ciampa up to go after the leg! Ciampa kicks Nese away, facelocks Nese in return and grinds him down. Fans rally, Nese moves around, and Nese powers Ciampa to the corner. Nese puts the leg on the rope, tags in Daivari, but Ciampa fights out with forearms and elbows! Ciampa DECKS Daivari but Nese trips him up! The ref reprimands but Daivari drags Nese to the corner to SLAM the leg into the post! And then he SLAMS the other leg! Thatcher storms over as Daivari keeps on the legs but the ref shouts at everyone to get back to their corners.

Daivari puts Ciampa in, drops elbows on the leg then stomps it, then drags Ciampa from Thatcher. Daivari drops more elbows, stomps the leg more, then clamps onto the leg to step through, for a Figure Four! Ciampa endures, Thatcher coaches him and the fans rally up! Ciampa drags himself and Daivari over but Nese gets in to hit Thatcher! The ref has to keep Thatcher back but Nese drags Daivari and Ciampa away! Nese tags in to stomp away on Ciampa, and Daivari finally lets Ciampa out of the hold. Fans boo and jeer while Nese flexes. Nese drags Ciampa over, tags in Daivari, and they split the wishbone on Ciampa!

Nese runs at Thatcher but Thatcher DECKS him first! Daivari has Ciampa’s leg but Ciampa enziguris back! Tag to Thatcher! Thatcher clinches Daivari for a BELLY2BELLY! Then a BELLYBELLY for Nese! EuroUppers for both Cruiserweights back and forth! Nese runs back in but Thatcher has the arm! Thatcher clamps on but has to stop Daivari first. HEEL HOOK! Nese pulls Thatcher’s ears and HOTSHOT BULLDOGS! Thatcher is down, Nese tags in, and Nese hurries to PREMIER TRIANGLE MOONSAULT! Tag back to Daivari and Daivari climbs up, LION SPLASH! Cover, but Ciampa breaks it!

Fans fire up as Ciampa returns to his corner. Daivari and Thatcher crawl, Nese tags in first! Thatcher kicks Nese away, and tags Ciampa back in! Ciampa rallies on Nese and Daivari with forearms and CHOPS! Ciampa CHOPS Daivari again but Nese dropkicks the bad leg out! Nese and Daivari both go up, DOUBLE- DECKED! Nese gets a knee, Daivari gets a forearm! Thatcher and Ciampa glare at each other, Ciampa gives Nese WILLOW’S BELL! Cover, Ciampa & Thatcher win!!

Winners: Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher, by pinfall (advance to the next round)

These two were tearing each other apart on NXT, but they’re standing together on 205 Live! Will Ciampa and Thatcher tear their way through the tournament to put their names on the Dusty Cup?


My Thoughts:

A good episode, though with some obvious results. While Gigi Dolin (Priscilla Kelly) and Cora Jade (Elayna Black) are very good wrestlers, they weren’t going to beat The Way, and it says a lot that Indi got the pin for this one. Candice & Indi are among the favorites to win the tournament, and I’m betting on a stellar match between them and KC Squared, Catanzaro & Carter. Gigi & Jade still made a good combination, and their aesthetics match up well, I hope they stick together.

Ciampa & Thatcher becoming a team after their Fight Pit match is a pretty cool way to follow up, and naturally they were going to beat the first team they faced. The OG had good combinations, but Nese and Daivari have been perennial jobbers to the stars even before this. Thatcher & Ciampa take on Undisputed Era next and that is going to be a great match that could go either way. Given the history between Undisputed Era and the current tag team champions, Lorcan & Burch, I give it 51-49, UE wins so that they can get a shot at the champions.

My Score: 8/10

Coverage SmackDown 2021

Big time challenges go down on SmackDown!

SmackDown goes big as Big E takes on Apollo Crews’ rematch challenge, and Bayley takes on Bianca Belair in the ULTIMATE obstacle course challenge!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Charlotte Flair & Asuka VS The Riott Squad w/ Billie Kay; Charlotte & Asuka win.
  • Cesaro VS Dolph Ziggler; Cesaro wins.
  • Sasha Banks VS Reginald w/ Carmella; Sasha wins.
  • WWE Intercontinental Championship: Big E VS Apollo Crews; Crews wins by disqualification, Big E retains the title.
  • Ultimate Athletic Obstacle Course Challenge: Bayley VS Bianca Belair; Bianca wins.
  • Dominik Mysterio VS King Corbin; Corbin wins.
  • Adam Pearce VS Paul Heyman w/ Roman Reigns; No Contest.

PLAY BY PLAY

Roman Reigns heads to the ring!

The Head of the Table, with Special Counsel, Paul Heyman, is back to open SmackDown, but no Jey Uso? Roman and Heyman are not in a good mood after the bait ‘n’ switch Adam Pearce pulled over on them with Kevin Owens. Heyman hands Roman a mic as fans boo and give thumbs down on their screens. “So KO said he was going to deliver a message today, huh?” Or is he not? No, we’re not going to see Kevin Owens tonight because Roman said so. Now let’s talk about last week and “card subject to change.” Real clever. A lot of people made comments about Pearce getting one past them, outsmarted them.

But let’s make this clear: “That way of thinking is beneath me.” Card subject to change is how losers think. It’s how people who are scared to come to work think. Roman doesn’t miss appearances, he puts in work! Legitimately! It took Roman’ sown health being at risk during a pandemic to keep him away. So he never wants to hear anyone say anything about him missing appearances. But what if Roma started thinking like “a puss” like Pearce, talking about his elbow and shoulder hurting. No one would doubt it because of the work Roman puts in! Roman’s knees hurt, and so does his neck. But what else? His ankles have been bad since college. And his back… Heyman says just the weight of it all is making Roman’s back hurt, because Roman’s been carrying the WWE for YEARS!

But what if Roman’s back continues to hurt until the Royal Rumble? What if he can’t make it because of that? Pearce walks out and says this is going too far. Heyman says Pearce is being rude not even addressing Roman. Pearce says this is spiraling out of control, and Roman can’t believe he wants to talk about control. We know who is in control. But what’s out of control is that Pearce is going against Roman. That Pearce is doing a favor and putting Kevin back into the Universal title picture. And the fact that Pearce is favoring Kevin! This isn’t even really a favor. Pearce is Kevin’s BITCH! And he’s also Roman’s bitch.

But what Roman really can’t stand right now, is Pearce having the audacity coming out here and complaining about how his body feels. Pearce hasn’t been in a match for six YEARS, but he’s talking about how his body hurts. Pearce is next to the thoroughbred of the WWE, a man who does 52 weeks a year, multiple days a week! Roman never complained, never stopped and busts his ass for this place, and that is why Roman is who Roman is! And Pearce is going to complain, whine, MOAN about stuff? “No wonder you never made it to the WWE.” Heyman chuckles at that one.

Pearce asks if this is funny to Heyman. It is. Pearce can take it from Roman but he won’t take it from Heyman. Oh? Well that’s disrespectful. Disrespecting Heyman is disrespecting Roman. Heyman, straighten Pearce out. Heyman is given the mic to speak. Pearce disrespected the Tribal Chief and his family. Heyman’s known his family 15 years. Roman’s family would not be friends with someone who isn’t tough! Do you know what it is like to be a friend of the Anoa’i family? Everyone buys into Heyman’s persona, that he’s “impotent as a man.” Heyman’s from New York, he whoop yo’ ASS for disrespecting the chief. Wanna stare Heyman down?

Heyman may not be a lawyer but he’s from a synagogue full of them. In Florida, a verbal contract is BINDING. So if you want something big for the main event, how about this? Pearce VS PAUL HEYMAN! What?! Heyman offers a handshake, and Pearce TAKES IT! The challenge is accepted!! Pearce will have his first match in six years, against Paul E. Dangerously! Roman says at the end of the night, Pearce gets his ass kicked. #BelieveThat.

 

Sami Zayn heads to the ring!

He has a sign with #JusticeForSami on it, and he brings out cuffs?! Sami is going to cuff himself to the ringside barriers as a form of protest because he is not part of tonight’s Intercontinental Championship! How will WWE officials respond to Sami’s sudden SmackDown sit-in?

SmackDown returns and Sami claims he is being victimized, but he will enter the Royal Rumble to counter it! Sami says he had Apollo Crews beat, though with hands somehow on Apollo’s tights. But then Apollo does the same thing back to him and Apollo wins?! That is not fair! But then the Empress of Tomorrow interrupts Sami with her entrance, followed by The Queen’s! The WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions are here!

Charlotte Flair & Asuka VS The Riott Squad w/ Billie Kay!

The Queens of Tomorrow have a lot going on as individuals on Raw, but they return to SmackDown to focus on their teamwork! Meanwhile, Liv Morgan & Ruby Riott haven’t been able to focus with the Femme Fatale frantically interfering. Will Billie be a burden as the Squad has a chance at earning a championship opportunity?

As the teams sort out, Natalya and Tamina are watching from backstage. The bell rings as Charlotte and Ruby start. They tie up, are in a deadlock, but Charlotte pushes Ruby to ropes. Ruby pushes back but Charlotte headlocks and throws Ruby down. Ruby keeps her shoulders up, fights to her feet, but Asuka tags in. Charlotte snapmares Ruby, Asuka runs Ruby over with a shoulder! Asuka headlocks Ruby, Ruby fights up but Charlotte tags back in. The Queens of Tomorrow hand Ruby off and Charlotte bumps Ruby off buckles! Charlotte digs her boot into Ruby’s head but lets off at 4. Ruby flounders, Charlotte taunts her to reach for Liv, then CLUBS her down.

Charlotte looms over Ruby, drags her up and whips her to a corner hard! Ruby falls over, Billie protests on the apron but Charlotte runs her off. Ruby rushes at Charlotte but into an elbow! Liv tags in as Billie shouts at Charlotte! Ruby rushes Charlotte but is thrown out, and Charlotte grabs at Billie! Liv apron dropkicks Charlotte back in! Liv hurries up top and leaps to crossbody! Cover, TWO! Billie can’t believe she’s being helpful as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Charlotte blocks a buckle bump to give a buckle bump! Charlotte stomps away on Liv, backs off as the ref counts, and lets out a “WOO~!” Fans clap on their screens, Charlotte scoops Liv but Liv slips out. Liv runs, Ruby tags in, Liv huricanranas and Ruby runs in to tilt-o-whirl! Charlotte blocks the headscissors but Ruby fires off forearms! Ruby goes up and gives Charlotte DEADLY NIGHTSHADE! Cover, TWO! Tag to Liv, Sami is still filming his protest, and the Squad double SLAMS Charlotte down! Cover, ONE! Liv tags Ruby back in, they stomp away on Charlotte in a corner, and then tag again.

Ruby and Liv bring Charlotte out, double whip but charlotte stops herself to kick and forearm and CHOP! Charlotte CHOPS away, throws Ruby into buckles then kicks Liv low! EXPLODER! And kip up! Charlotte fires up but misses Liv in the corner. Liv runs into the backbreaker and BUCKLE SHOT! Tag to Asuka, SLIDING WIZARD! Cover, Ruby breaks it! Ruby runs but into Charlotte’s BOOT! Liv dropkicks Charlotte and enziguris Asuka! But Asuka has the leg for an ANKLE LOCK! Liv tries to roll through but gets caught to a trapped-leg GERMAN SUPLEX! Asuka kicks but misses, Liv rolls her to swing. Asuka blocks, reels Liv in, but Ruby tags!

Asuka lets Liv go to get Ruby, but Billie distracts! The O’Conner roll is rolled over but Billie argues too long! That costs Ruby, she has to kick Asuka! Liv saves Ruby from the hip attack but falls on Billie! Ruby SUPERKICKS but Asuka counters the Riott Kick to the pop-up KNEE! Asuka runs, tags Charlotte, CODE BREAKER to NATURAL SELECTION! Cover, the champions win!

Winners: Charlotte Flair & Asuka, by pinfall

Billie went from helping to hindering the Squad again! Will this partnership fall apart before Billie’s very eyes?

 

Billie finds the Squad backstage.

She apologizes for, for… For what, Billie? Stopping Ruby from pinning Asuka? Messing this opportunity up for them?! Yeah… Well for someone who doesn’t mean to, she’s pretty good at it. Maybe that should be put on the resume. Well, all the great teams have overcome obstacles! Billie has good news, though. She talked to Sonya Deville and the Squad is in the Women’s Rumble match! They can practice throwing Billie out over the ropes! Billie can pretend to be Bianca or Mella! No, there is no “us” anymore. The Squad works better when it’s just Ruby and Liv. Sorry. Will Billie ever catch a break?

 

Daniel Bryan is here!

And he goes past Sami’s new sign, where SAMI is an acronym: Stand Against Moral Injustice. Clever. Bryan goes to the ring and fans join in the “YES!” fingers on their screens. Bryan says a week from this Sunday is one of the most unique and historic traditions in the WWE, the Royal Rumble match. And even saying that, this time of year, a chill goes down Bryan’s spine. It’s a little hard to explain why but Bryan will give it his best shot. “It’s the uncertainty of what number you’re going to. It’s watching the countdown for every superstar that comes out. It’s waiting for that buzzer to hit, for that music to play, for you to run down, nobody knows that you’re coming, and you don’t know who’s coming out next!

“It’s the exhilaration of competing against 29 other superstars that could go over an hour, and it’s every man for themselves.” One of the most challenging, grueling things you can do in the WWE, and that makes Bryan feel alive. Despite all the pain, all the uncertainty, it is absolutely worth it because the winner gets to face the champion of their choosing in the main event of WrestleMania! Bryan is very proud of his career, he’s accomplished a lot. But the one thing he has never done is win a Royal Rumble! Experts, commentary, Michael Cole even, will say- Cesaro interrupts!

Cesaro thought he beat some sense into Bryan last week, but here Bryan is again talking about how he’ll win the Rumble. Cesaro appreciates Bryan explaining the rules, but Cesaro could’ve done it better and in five languages. But that’s besides the point. Bryan is NOT winning this year’s Rumble, Cesaro is. As the first-ever Andre the Giant Battle Royal winner, Cesaro is an expert on this. Bryan didn’t forget about the loss, but instead of talking, how about putting the mics down, and they can fight it out again? Cesaro says no. Cesaro is sick and tired of proving himself week after week doing the same thing over and over! He beat Bryan, and Bryan isn’t dressed for the occasion, Cesaro issues an open challenge! Anyone who has already declared for the Rumble, come on down!

The one to answer the open challenge is… Dolph Ziggler! One half of the SmackDown Tag Team Champions is here asking about the conversation. Ziggler has been in the second most Rumbles ever. Ziggler can go all night long, ask anyone. And aside from himself and his colleague, Robert Roode, there is no one that can go toe-to-toe with Ziggler except maybe Cesaro. No offense to Bryan but it ain’t 2014 anymore. But if we’re talking about a Rumble challenge, Ziggler wants to win to go to Mania and get paid! So Bryan, scoot over, and Cesaro, consider your challenge accepted. Will the Show-Off show up the Swiss Cyborg?

Cesaro VS Dolph Ziggler!

SmackDown returns and Bryan has joined commentary for this great match-up already underway. Ziggler has Cesaro down and has a leg, gets a cover, TWO! Cesaro gets a lateral press but Ziggler keeps his shoulder up. Cesaro pushes him around, gut wrenches and lifts but Ziggler resists by grabbing Cesaro’s leg again. Ziggler shifts, rolls, has a cover, ONE! Cesaro tries a cover, ONE! Cesaro waistlocks but Ziggler gets the ropes. Ziggler elbows Cesaro away then jumps on for a sleeper hold! Cesaro stays up, RAMS Ziggler into buckles and is free. Cesaro runs in to BLAST Ziggler with that EuroUpper! Ziggler flounders into a trip and then a SWISS SWING!

Cesaro brings Ziggler around and around for a count of 10, then maybe 15 even, or 20! Cesaro throws Ziggler, covers, TWO! Ziggler survives the swing, Cesaro stalks him to a corner, then runs in, only to get POST! Ziggler rolls Cesaro up, TWO! Cesaro back drops, Ziggler sunset flips, TWO! Cesaro sits on the cover, TWO! Ziggler sunsets, TWO! Cesaro, TWO! Ziggler, TOW! Cesaro high stacks, TWO! Ziggler pops him to a cover, TWO! SUPER- No, Cesaro blocks but uppercuts into a backslide,. Cesaro slips out, but into a ZIGZAG! Cover, TWO!! And yes, Sami is still protesting. He’s even memeing! “Sami was robbed, change my mind.”

Cesaro and Ziggler slowly rise and Ziggler sleeper holds again! Cesaro gets up, shifts Ziggler from backpack to a front facelock, for a suplex! Ziggler knees free, kicks low then runs, into a pop-up! Ziggler tries to huricanrana, but Cesaro makes it a NEUTRALIZER! Cover, Cesaro wins!

Winner: Cesaro, by pinfall

Michael Cole points out this is two times in a row that Cesaro has beaten a former world champion! Will Cesaro take the Rumble and be a WrestleMania contender?

 

Sasha Banks VS Reginald w/ Carmella!

It is very rare for WWE to do co-ed matches like this, and certain against a champion like The Boss against the sommelier in employment of The Untouchable Princess of Staten Island. Will Reginald ruin Sasha’s momentum towards the rematch with Mella?

SmackDown returns and Mella makes her entrance to accompany Reginald to the ring, two other assistants bringing the champagne and drinking glasses to the ring for them. Mella and the champagne join commentary as the bell rings. Sasha tells Reggie it’s time to put up or shut up, but Reggie presents her with an orange rose. Sasha accepts the rose but goes to slap Reggie! He blocks, only for Sasha to SLAP him with the other hand! Sasha knuckle locks, goes up and uses the ropes to arm-drag, but Reggie handsprings through! Mella says that’s her Reggie! Reggie waistlocks but Sasha resists the lift and slips out the back to switch. Reggie does the same and rolls right out of the ring!

Reggie plays some cat ‘n’ mouse and does a back flip off the apron! But Sasha wrecks him with a baseball slide dropkick! Sasha whips Reggie at the steel steps but Reggie leaps up and over! Mella applauds the bit of flair, Sasha gives chase, they go in the ring and speed things up with hurdle for hurdle. Reggie shows off with that flip, Sasha goes up and springboards, but Reggie blocks the sunset flip! Reggie wheelbarrows Sasha but she turns that into a BULLDOG! Sasha wants Mella to see why she’s the boss, but Sasha misses the meteora to hit buckles! Sasha avoids Reggie’s elbow drop, Oklahoma roll but Reggie slips out!

Reggie avoids Sasha’s dropkick to bomb lift, but Sasha arm-drags free! Sasha runs in but is put on the apron, but she knees Reggie away! Sasha goes up, leaps, crossbody but Reggie holds her up! Reggie pops Sasha up but into another arm-drag! Reggie is sent out, Sasha hurries to the apron, METEORA! Sasha slaps the champagne out of Mella’s hand! Sasha goes back into the ring with Reggie, brings him in for a backstabber but he rolls through! Sasha kicks him, and knuckle locks to flip up and into another METEORA! Mella sneers but Sasha tilt-o-whirls and drags Reggie down by his arm! BANK STATEMENT!! Reggie taps, Sasha wins!

Winner: Sasha Banks, by submission

Sasha got her revenge on Reggie, and throws him out to Mella! Will Sasha do the same to the Princess at the Royal Rumble?

 

Roman Reigns sits in his private room.

Heyman says Roman was brilliant. They got Pearce! “We? What’re you talking about?” Heyman knew what Roman was up to, he fed right into it. Roman simply passed Heyman the mic to do what he does better than anyone, and that is verbally rip someone to shreds. Roman didn’t say Heyman should challenge Pearce to a match. But Heyman has stepped into it, so he has to do this. Roman didn’t hire some punk to be Special Counsel, he hired a man. So Heyman needs to go out there and represent Roman as a man and handle business. “Paul, be a man. Handle your business.” The Special Counsel has no words, will he have no defense against Pearce?

 

WWE Intercontinental Championship: Big E VS Apollo Crews!

Sami Zayn is irate as Big E taunts him with the belt. But Sami is not the champion’s concern, he’s taking on the man in the ring! Big E and Apollo have been in friendly competition, but after what Heyman told both of them over these last few weeks on Talking Smack, will all of that go out the window?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and it’s time to #ThinkBig or go home!

Apollo rushes Big E but right into an OVERHEAD SUPLEX! Apollo goes to the apron, Big E follows and stomps him, to then run and APRON SPLASH! Big E is fired up and gets back in to run at Apollo. Apollo elbows back, BOOTS back, then runs, into a scoop! Apollo slips off, and ENZIGURIS! Big E wobbles into a BOOT! Standing moonsault! Cover, TWO! Apollo keeps focus as he stalks Big E. Apollo waistlocks and GERMAN SUPLEXES Big E! Apollo holds on to GERMAN again! Big E elbows over and over until he’s free, and he gets Apollo with the Urenag-E! Cover, TWO! Big E keeps his cool as he goes out after Apollo.

Big E and Apollo end up by the announce desk. Big E tells Apollo he’ll never make the mistake of disrespecting him again. Apollo pushes Big E away, then dodges him to go up the apron and MOONSAULT! Direct hit and down goes Big E! Apollo gets Big E back in at the ring count of 8 then climbs up top! Big E hits Apollo first then climbs up to join him. Big E throws forearms, stands Apollo up, but Apollo resists the superplex! Apollo throws headbutts as fans clap on their screens! Big E falls back, Apollo adjusts, but Sami uncuffs himself! Sami’s strike is over as Apollo leaps to missile dropkick Big E!

Apollo resets but Sami HELLUVA KICKS him!! SAMI SCREWS APOLLO!

Winner: Apollo Crews by disqualification (Big E is still WWE Intercontinental Championship)

And then Sami HELLUVA KICKS Big E! And Sami has the nerve to talk about injustice! Sami says HE is the champion, but that this is what Big E and Apollo deserve! Will Sami get what he deserves soon enough?

 

Kevin Owens speaks.

“I showed up to work today, and I was told I couldn’t get into the building because Roman Reigns pulled some strings to make sure I wouldn’t be there. Roman, dude… It’s fine. But just know this: at the Royal Rumble, there’s no more strings for you to pull.” At the Rumble, they will settle this once and for all. And Roman calls Kevin “a cockroach that won’t die,” and tells him to just stop fighting, but Kevin can’t do that. Roman has yet to beat Kevin like the champion he claims to be. Roman did not earn those victories. The family did that for him.

And the other reason Kevin keeps fighting is this. Kevin has a lot of tattoos, and they all have a story behind them. He has his wife’s name on his wrist, his kids’ names on the other side, then one to remind him of his parents. Kevin fights for all of them, but he has tattoos on his knuckles. These are his grandfathers’ initials: M for Melvin, his dad’s dad, and P is for Pierre, his mom’s dad. Those men had Kevin’s back all the way. They were his biggest fans, and nothing made them happier than seeing Kevin in the ring. The biggest regret Kevin will have is that he didn’t make it to the WWE in time for them to see, because they both passed away just before.

But they will always be with Kevin. The mark they left on Kevin will always be there, because both men battled illnesses that should’ve made their lives a lot shorter. Those two men refused to quit, and because of that, Kevin was lucky to have many, many great years with them. So how can Kevin stop fighting? That is why Kevin will not stay away and why he will #JustKeepFighting. That is why come Royal Rumble, Kevin will be the Last Man Standing.

 

The Street Profits have a basket.

Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins see Ziggler talking with Sonya, and have a quick question: Are you ready~, ready~? This is a celebratory basket for congratulating Sonya on her new job and office! But don’t jump the gun! They’re not just congratulating her on the new gig. She sits next to Pearce, looking pretty, but they have business. It has been two, two weeks, since the Profits lost the SmackDown Tag Team Championships against Ziggler & Roode, Entertainment Dysfunction. Put that on a t-shirt, it’ll make millions! But that aside, the Profits- Sonya knows they want their rematch. She’s so smart!

Sonya knows they were champions for 312 days, won two Slammy Awards, so yes they deserve a rematch. But Ford is still recovering from the leg injury. If he gets in that ring too soon, gets hurt and is out of action, that hurts SmackDown as a whole. So hear her out: For now, hang out, keep doing your segments to hype the show, and let another team get the opportunity. Then when Ford is 100%, he and Dawkins get back in the game and back in the title picture. Cool with t hat, fam? yeah, that’s cool. Golly, Sonya, thanks for your concern. Enjoy the basket! It’s expensive. But will the long wait really work out in the Profits’ favor?

 

Ultimate Athletic Obstacle Course Challenge: Bayley VS Bianca Belair!

The Role Model wants The EST to prove she’s still got it when it comes to being the strongest, the fastest, the roughest, the toughest, etc. Therefore, SmackDown is setting up a truly challenging obstacle course for them both to run! Who backs up their words, after the break?

SmackDown returns and Michael Cole presides over this special competition, and gives the introductions for Bianca, then for Bayley. Bayley takes over and says DING DONG, BYE Cole. This is her show now! And look, Bianca, this is what Bayley has for her. America Ninja Warrior ain’t got nothing on UAOCC! This is of course timed, starting right here with the “big ol’ 400 pound tractor tire,” which you only need to flip once. Go down the ramp, take on the short hurdles, climb the trio of military walls. And then Bayley even got advice from Chad Gable and Alpha Academy, he will put you through the full body test, the fireman’s carry!

But that’s not all! The very last challenge is grab the basketball, put it through the net, and time stops at the exact moment the ball exits the bottom of the net! The competitor with the shortest time is of course the winner! Let’s get the clock going, and Bayley wants to go first. Bianca says that’s fine, and we begin… NOW! Bayley flips the tire, hurries down the ramp, though not quite that quickly, and takes on the hop hurdles to go right at the military walls. The short one seems to throw her off, and she just weaves around them?! Is that allowed?

Bayley fireman’s carries Gable, and he seems to be heavier than he looks. Bianca “cheers” Bayley on as she goes from one end to another, then she gets the ball to DUNK- no, wait, there! Bayley finishes at 1:12. But she says she did Bianca a favor. “Let’s EST up this course,” all for Bianca. Oh, the hurdles are now full hurdles, and Bianca wraps her braid. GO! Bianca easily flips the tire, runs down the ramp., leaps the hurdles, leaps the walls, but she isn’t carrying Gable, but OTIS! Bianca has 40 seconds, she carries the 330 pound Otis with ease, then gets the ball and even dares Bayley to play D! She breaks ankles and DUNKS! She had 17 seconds to spare!

Winner: Bianca Belair

Sorry, Bayley, but that’s the power of the EST! Bayley is a sore loser and throws the ball at Bianca! And then hammers away with forearms and stomps! The ref reprimands but Bayley doesn’t care, as she POSTS Bianca and knocks down the basketball hoop! Bayley storms off, perhaps having proven she’s the meanest on the roster.

 

Rey Mysterio coaches Dominik backstage.

Rey reviews with Dom that Baron Corbin is a former boxer, so he has to watch out for the hands. Dom says Rey can trust him to have this. Dom is comfortable with his skills and has prepared. Okay, then we’ll do it his way. But if something goes wrong, they do it Rey’s way. That’s fair. Dom heads out, will he be able to trump the Wolf King?

 

Dominik Mysterio VS King Corbin!

SmackDown returns as Corbin is already in the ring. Dominik makes his entrance, leaving Rey backstage so he can handle things. The bell rings and Dom circles with Corbin. They tie up, Corbin powers Dom to a corner but Dom dodges the hands to throw hands of his own! Dom rams his shoulder in but Corbin shoves him away. Dom dropkicks but Corbin stays up. Dom whips, Corbin reverses but Dom wheelbarrows and throws Corbin out of the ring! The ring count climbs but Dom slingshots, only for Corbin to get clear and CLOBBER him! Corbin drags Dom up and into the ring, covers, TWO! Corbin already glares at the ref as he grows annoyed.

Corbin stalks Dom, drags him to ropes and stands on him! The ref counts, Corbin hops off at 4, then drags Dom up to throw body shots! The ref counts, Corbin lets off at 4 again, then stands Dom up. Corbin whips Dom corner to corner hard! Dom bounces off buckles to hit the mat, and Corbin takes his time bringing Dom back up. Corbin brings Dom around, reel shim in but Dom slips out to dropkick a leg! Corbin ends up on ropes, Dom dials it up but the call is blocked! Corbin drags Dom from ropes, yanks but Dom lands on his feet, only for Corbin to DECK him! Corbin reels Dom in and hits END OF DAYS! Cover, Corbin wins!

Winner: Baron Corbin, by pinfall

The Wolf King wins because he did this his way! Will the Mysterios regroup and draw up a winning game plan?

 

Adam Pearce VS Paul Heyman w/ Roman Reigns!

Scrap Daddy’s switcheroo not only got the better of the Special Counsel last week, it might be why he stuck his foot in his mouth this week! Will Pearce’s return to the ring also get the better of Paul E. Dangerously? Has the Head of the Table truly left Heyman hanging?

Heyman is taping his hands on his way to the ring, but stumbles off the steps? The ref checks on Heyman but he says he’s fine. Give him a minute to walk it off. Heyman fumbles on the steps again and Pearce smells a plot. After all, he let his “bum leg” be why Kevin Owens is back in the title match. And just as he knew, Heyman cites “card subject to change.” This was the trump card Heyman had up his sleeve! Roman did NOT leave the building, he’s heading to the ring! Now that the bait ‘n’ switch is on the other foot, will Scrap Daddy be scrap metal?

Adam Pearce VS Roman Reigns w/ Paul Heyman!

Roman SUPERMAN PUNCHES Pearce the second he’s in the ring! This isn’t even a match because the bell hasn’t rung! Heyman says he has obviously found a suitable replacement, and Roman is pulling steps apart. Pearce throws a haymaker! Roman glares at Pearce, and LOW BLOW KICKS him! And then throws Pearce OVER the barriers! Roman is snarling as he goes around the way to drag Pearce up and throw him INTO ThunderDome screens! And then he drags Pearce up to throw heavy forearms! And then throws him into stage wall! Fans give thumbs down but that’s not going to save Pearce from Roman’s wrath!

Roman fireman’s carries Pearce and puts him on the upper level, the same place he threw Kevin off of. But speaking of, Kevin runs in and attacks Roman! Kevin saves Pearce as he throws haymakers and bumps Roman off barriers! Roman throws Kevin into screens, throws haymakers of his own, then they brawl to ringside! It’s Royal Rumble come early! Roman puts Kevin in the ring, storms in but into a USUPERKICK! Roman SUPERMAN PUNCH- NO! STUNNER from Kevin!! Kevin dares Roman to get back up! Roman sputters as he gets out of the ring but Kevin whips him into barriers! And clubs away on his back!

Referees rush out to try and stop this, and Kevin backs off to cool off. But then Kevin comes back to STOMP Roman into barriers! Roman flounders back up, referees try to talk Kevin down, and even Pat Buck, Pearce’s coworker. But Kevin gets past them to give Roman another STUNNER! Kevin wants Heyman to say something but Heyman has nothing to say! So Kevin brings Roman over, pops him up, POWERBOMB through the announce desk!! Kevin is pulling steel steps apart! The refs keep him from bringing that over to Roman! Kevin says Roman’s lucky the officials are here to stop him, but it won’t happen at the Royal Rumble! Will Kevin truly #StunTheWorld when he is THE Last Man Standing?


My Thoughts:

A great SmackDown that honestly could’ve been a go-home to the Royal Rumble in some cases. Charlotte & Asuka VS Riott Squad was good, but naturally the champions win, mostly because Billie was too involved. She has been kicked out of the Riott Squad, though she wasn’t really a member to begin with, but I feel like they could’ve gone another week, though. Natty & Tamina were watching backstage, I wouldn’t mind seeing them get a match with Charlotte & Asuka, even if they were to lose. The match of Sasha Banks VS Reginald was pretty good, mostly because Reggie is insanely athletic. Depending on how the story goes of him being Mella’s sommelier, maybe he can split off and get into like 205 Live and the Cruiserweight Division to freshen things up a bit.

But of course Sasha wins, she’s the champion. I have a feeling this means the go-home sees Mella standing tall so that Sasha is still the favored to win. The “Ultimate” obstacle course challenge was very clearly going to be won by Bianca, but I commend Bayley for trying to rig it in her favor. Though, shouldn’t she have been penalized or even disqualified for outright skipping those military style walls? Pretty sure we’re getting a match between the two, and Bianca can sell the bad arm to “overcome” it and win, for big momentum going into the Women’s Rumble.

The Profits had a good segment with Sonya, and I like that, at least on the surface, Sonya is being a responsible official and having the Profits wait so they can be healed up. But I wonder if there will even be defenses in that time, as there aren’t many tag teams on SmackDown. It’s mostly the champs, the Profits, Cesaro-Nakamura, and maybe Alpha Academy, aka Gable & Otis. Dom VS Corbin felt like filler just to get things to what Rey was talking about last week, which should’ve just been what we got this week. Unless it was because the person they have in mind (Cain Velasquez) isn’t available right now because of some COVID concerns. That I’d understand.

Sami Zayn “protesting” this episode just so he’d be ringside for the Intercontinental Championship was a pretty good long game for the episode. Sami’s signs were clever, but it does seem a shame for what should’ve been a huge match. Maybe we get another Triple Threat for this title, and that is the way Big E loses. Though, I think it’d work well if Big E won, making his reign feel even bigger from having dealt with two contenders. After that, Big E can face just about anyone else on the roster, such as Nakamura, Cesaro or even Otis. And speaking of, Cesaro had a good promo with Bryan and a really good match with Ziggler, but I feel like all these wins are setting Cesaro up to not win the Rumble. But I said the same thing about Bryan making it his mission to win the reason he won’t, so maybe as far as SmackDown goes, it’s between the two of them as Rumble finalists.

And again, we got a lot of great stuff out of the Roman Reigns story. The opening promo segment was really good, it helped set up the main event, and gave a great tease of Pearce VS Heyman. But Heyman using the fake injury and “card subject to change” back on Pearce was also very clever, and naturally it was Roman who would beat Pearce up to get back at him for everything so far. Kevin had a really good promo, made a great save, and got to stand tall tonight with the table bomb. I’m curious as to Kevin’s part in the go-home next week. I can’t see him standing tall two weeks in a row just to keep the math in Roman’s favor, so maybe Roman turns this around to then defy the math and still retain the title. I’m pretty sure Roman does retain, and we leave it up to the Rumble to decide the rest.

My Score: 8.5/10
