This week’s SmackDown started as WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch came out to the arena. Footage from last week was shown where Bianca Belair was receiving a Homecoming party which was hosted by WWE Hall of Famer Kane. Becky Lynch crashed into the party and beat her down.

Now onto this week, Becky entered the ring and said since Bianca was given a Homecoming party last week Becky was not treated with anything like that. But she could live with that. She wanted to congratulate Bianca, but Bianca threatened to attack that’s why she had to beat her down. It was the law of the Jungle.

Bianca Belair came out to the arena. She said that Becky embarrassed her at SummerSlam and at her hometown, but that would not happen at Extreme Rules. Becky said that she was having a good catchphrase going but she is far from being the EST of Smackdown. Bianca said that whatever Becky achieved in her career she has achieved in a quarter of a year.

The duo kept arguing for a while longer and at the end Becky Lynch slapped Bianca right into the face. Bianca attacked Becky and the duo started fighting each other. At the end, Bianca knocked Becky out with the KOD and left her unconscious in the ring.

Match 1 – WWE intercontinental championship Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Apollo Crews to retain

This was the first match of the night and it was for the intercontinental championship. The match was booked for only five minutes and it was quite entertaining. The match ended when Nakamura pinned Apollo with a roll up.

A number of backstage segments and footage from previous weeks of Smackdown was shown. Montez Ford challenged Roman Reigns in a match one on one tonight which Roman Reigns accepted.

Match 2 – Zelina Vega defeated Liv Morgan

This was a bit shocking result before Liv’s pay-per-view match this Sunday that she would lose to a jobber. All the momentum she gained since she is running slow after the release of Ruby Riott is almost lost. It could only be saved if she could snatch a dominant victory at Extreme Rules.

Happy Corbin came out to the arena. He developed a brand new talk show name Happy Talk. The news of the talk show was aired already. He talked about how much happy he always remained and his wealth. He said that his very first guest of the show was himself. As he started talking about the beating he gave Kevin Owens last week Owens himself came out to the arena. As he was about to enter the ring, Riddick Moss made his return and attacked him. Corbin and Moss teamed up and beat down Owens.

Match 3 – Nikki ASH defeated Natalya Neidhart

The match was booked for two minutes only WWE should end this feud now. It is extremely boring and there is nothing to see at all. And guess what it was another Roll up victory.

After the match, Shotzi and Nox enter the arena and made themselves clear. There next up for the Tag Team Championship opportunity.

Naomi came out to the arena. She talked about how Sonya Deville did not give her any match since joining Smackdown and she said that would not be moving without having a match. Sonya Deville entered and asked her to leave the ring. Naomi challenged Sonya in a match. Sonya refused and said she was an official now. Naomi chanted “Make The Match” with the fans. But Sonya did not listen and brought security guards to take her out. This is finally happening, Sonya is coming to back to action.

Match 4 – Roman Reigns defeated Montez Ford by submission

There is no doubt that this was the best match of the night. It was booked for nearly ten minutes and Montez Ford was really impressive in this match. Roman Reigns made him submit with the Guillotine Lock.

After the match, the Bloodline started beating of Ford as ‘The Demon’ Finn Balor arrived took down all three members of the Bloodline. He beat down Roman Reigns badly and gave a small cameo of the Extreme Rules. The Demon stood tall as this week’s Smackdown went off air.

Overall, it was a good week of Smackdown. There were not enough matches in this night but it did good to promote all the ongoing storylines and Extreme Rules. But some of the bookings of this week was quite weak. We give it 3 stars out 5.

Paul Heyman Speaks On The Post 9/11 Smackdown Episode

Professional with Legend Paul Heyman who is currently playing the role of the manager of the WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns recently talked about the post 9/11 episode of Smackdown and how it fit to him to work beside Jim Ross during that episode.

The post 9/11 episode of WWE SmackDown was quite emotional. At the start of the event Lilian Garcia sang national anthem of The United States of America in front of the crowd and the whole WWE locker room which is considered as one of the most emotional moments in WWE history. Lilian herself was in tears while singing the song.

Paul Heyman Speaks On The Post 9/11 Smackdown Episode

In this episode WWE did not concentrated on the ongoing storylines much and the book a number of action packed matches. Of course there was a confrontation between the then WCW World Heavyweight champion the Rock and Shawn Stasiak which ultimately turned out to be a match and The Rock you easily defeated Stasiak with a Rock Bottom.

Except of these matches there are some other good matches as well. None of those matches aged very well but the night was very emotional throughout and matches were fun to watch. In the main event of the night, Kurt Angle faced Rhyno and defeated the former ECW star. There were some other good matches during the night such as Chris Jericho vs. Christian, Lita vs. Ivory etc.

Paul Heyman who is currently playing the role of the manager of the WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns recently spoke to Sports Illustrated where he talked about the post 9/11 episode of Smackdown. He said;

“I didn’t know how to convey that on the air, and I didn’t know if it was my place to do so, but as a New Yorker, I felt obligated to identify myself—not only from the perspective of New York as a locale in which I reside, but also that deep down, the person you see talking at the moment is culturally, physically, spiritually a New Yorker at heart.

“I hardly remember anything about that night, other than the memory of Lilian Garcia singing. I don’t even remember what she sang, whether it was ‘God Bless, America,’ ‘America, The Beautiful,’ or the national anthem—I just remember she sang. When she was singing, she did it flawlessly. Her voice carried the emotion of the moment to such a degree that it moved me and woke me up. It also made me a complete emotional wreck.

“I can’t tell you one match that happened on that show,” Heyman says. “All I remember is the bolt that went through my system when I heard Lilian sing, which reminded me I had an obligation to deliver. Then I heard Jim Ross say, ‘Just follow my lead, kid, and you’ll be fine,’ which is the same thing he’d said to me during my first broadcast on Raw.

“Afterward, I can still remember Vince McMahon in my headset saying, ‘That was great. Now it’s time to entertain.’ From that point on, I hope J.R. and I did justice to the job for which we were tasked, but I don’t remember doing it all.”

To surprise everyone the new WWE champion Big E entered the arena. He entered the ring and the fans chanted “You deserve it” chants. Before he could say anything Finn Balor came out to the arena. There was a tag team match that had been scheduled.

Match 1 – Finn Balor and Big E defeated The Usos

It was really a very good match to open things up for the night. The match went on for around eight minutes and it was enough to please the fans. Big E pinned Jimmy Uso with the Big Ending.

Match 2 – Rick Boogs defeated Robert Roode

Here is another match to promote Rick Boogs. And he is doing quite awesome. The match was quite short and it was totally dominated by Boogs. He defeated Roode with the Pump Handle Slam.

Kevin Owens was scheduled to face Happy Corbin but the match could never happen as Corbin attacked Kevin during his entrance. He Chokeslammed him on the apron and knocked him out.

Seth Rollins came out to the arena. Last week after the kayfabe injury of Edge, it looks like Rollins would turn babyface but now it looks like that is not happening. He said last week he had one of the best matches of his career but what happened to Edge was scary.

He showed highlights of the match on the big screen. He said he was frustrated of people asking him why he did such a thing to Edge. He was not guilty of whatever he did last week. We believe the fan for whatever happened to Edge. He then said that he was not done with Edge yet. Once he made his come back he would like to challenge him again, if Edge could make it back.

Match 3 – Toni Storm and Liv Morgan defeated Carmella and Zelina Vega

Honestly the match was disgusting but it maybe was a good way to build up story line between the individuals. The match just started and Carmella left the ring saying her nose was broken. The referee counted them out and Liv Morgan challenged Carmella in a match at Extreme Rules.

Backstage Naomi expressed her frustration on Sonya Deville for not getting a match yet in SmackDown. She said one way or another she would get her match soon. This may be a potential indication towards an in ring return of  Sonya Deville.

Match 4 – Sami Zayn defeated Dominik Mysterio

This was Sami’s third victory on Dominik in a row. The match was short but it was good. There are two potential indications, the first one might be a potential father vs son feud. And the next one may be a push for Sami Zayn.

WWE Hall of Famer Kane entered the arena. It really felt good to see him back. He welcomed Bianca Belair to the arena for her homecoming celebrations. Kane was the host. Kane honoured Bianca with The Key of Knox County. Bianca said she was proud of herself.

Her celebrations were inturupted by Becky Lynch. She mocked Bianca for everything. Bianca returned the favour by saying she did not go here. After a little arguement, Bianca attempted to hit the Kiss of Death, Becky countered and nailed her with the Book End, which in this case was being addressed as the Manhandle Slam. Becky Lynch celebrated with the title as this week’s SmackDown went off air.

Overall, it was a good week of Smackdown. A lot of things were happening where they tried to touch all the ongoing storylines. The matches will not as good as expected but the segments were fun. The return of Kane was also fun to see. We give it 3 stars out 5.

Next up is the contract signing for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship between the champion Becky Lynch and the Challenger Bianca Belair. Bianca came out to the arena first. She said that she had utter respect for Becky Lynch but she changed her mind. At extreme rules she claims she will take her title back.

Becky Lynch came out next. There was a little bit of botch as Becky struggled to untie her title from her waist. Becky entered the ring and reminded what happened at Summerslam. She was unhappy with the way fans treated her. You find the contract and said she would do the same thing what she did to her at SummerSlam. So Becky is a heel officially.

Match 2 – Seth Rollins defeated Edge

The match went on for nearly 15 minutes and what an amazing match it was. Near Falls were the best things about the match. Both athletes were really good. The ending was quite dramatic. Seth hit Edge with a low blow which is the referee missed. Seth hit a number of kicks and then the Curb Stomp to pin him. The medical team came out to the aid of Edge after the match. The injury is not confirm if it was kayfabe. But it looked kayfabe.

Edge was taken to the hospital as Seth was asked backstage how he felt. Seth sounded really confused, as if he did not like what happened. This was perhaps a potential face turn for Seth Rollins.

Match 3 – The Street Profits defeated The Usos by DQ, Usos retained

Another great match. It had all the qualities to feature on any main event on any show. There was ‘this is awesome’ chant during this match. The Street Profits were closing in on a victory as Roman Reigns attacked them.

Overall this week’s Smackdown was quite good. All the segments and the matches were quite relevant to the ongoing storylines. However there were only three matches in the show, and all of them were quite good. The battle between Edge and Seth rollins was just amazing. We give this week 3.5 stars out of 5.

He made his return to WWE just last week on Friday night Smackdown and he was instantly booked in a match against Dominik Mysterio. His returned was quite successful as he defeated Dominik Mysterio.

WWE Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn who is a former WWE NXT champion recently gave a post match interview where he talked about his absence from the WWE recently and he also said that he was not allowed to reveal why he was absent from WWE for over a month. He said;

last four weeks I haven’t been around; you could have reached out to me? But nobody did. I didn’t get a text, I didn’t get a call. Nobody even thought to ask, ‘where is Sami?’

Smackdown

“Where is one of the greatest performers of our time? Where is he these days? Nobody thought to ask. But now that I’m back, everyone is acting like they care. I’m not even allowed to talk about where I’ve been – but trust me, in due time, you’re going to find out where I was and what I was up to. And trust me, it’s going be juicy.”

“I didn’t even get asked to be on TV for the last four weeks, and yet they had time for Dominik Mysterio to go out there tonight and basically have open ring time? Why is that? I am a generational talent, and they didn’t even ask me to come out tonight. Anytime, Dominik or his daddy want a reality check, to remind them that nobody is on my level, I’d be glad to do it.”

Why There Are So Many Big Names On Smackdown Suddenly – Analysis

If you currently look at the roster of Friday Night Smackdown it is too strong compared to the roster of Monday Night RAW. Most of the biggest names of WWE right now are in SmackDown. And about the women’s division, SmackDown even has more women than RAW.

At SummerSlam some of the biggest names of WWE made their return and all of those restless are coming to SmackDown only. Latest talk about the return of Becky Lynch. It was the most anticipated Return of the Year. The planning was not bad, but the execution was not. It could have been way better. We would talk about this in a different story.

Why There Are So Many Big Names On Smackdown Suddenly – Analysis

But Becky Lynch coming back to SmackDown is a little shocking since they are not enough big names on RAW right now. SmackDown already has the likes of Sasha Banks, Bayley, Toni Storm and Bianca Belair, while Raw only has Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley. Of course we could have called Shayna Baszler a big name but she is not that of a big name anymore. Still WWWE decided Becky Lynch to put on the blue brand.

About the WWE Universal Championship picture, with Roman Reigns defeating John Cena at SummerSlam, it is quite clear that the former 16 times WWE world champion will not come to WWE for now and he will go back to Hollywood once again. WWE decided to bring back Brock Lesnar to challenge Roman Reigns, and guess what, he is also on the blue brand.

Smackdown
Smackdown. Image Credits: Twitter

While Bobby Lashley will continue his feud with Goldberg on RAW the blue side of WWE will have a feud between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. Of course this is not the first time we are seeing this rivalry but this time it is way bigger than previously it was. WWE has brought some interesting booking ideas Hindi WWE Championship feud between Goldberg and Bobby Lashley, so it will not be that boring anymore.

With Brock Lesnar coming to the blue brand, it is a must watch show right now. With the biggest names of professional wrestling are all in the blue brand, how can you not watch the show anymore? That is right, it is a must watch show right now.

Smackdown
Smackdown. Image Credits: Twitter

But why did WWE brought all their big names to SmackDown suddenly?  They have never did something like this before. In most of the cases most of the big names of WWE has always stayed on RAW while SmackDown had to deal with only a few names. But suddenly it looks like SmackDown is a House full of stars.

It looks like Vince McMahon is finally taking the All Elite Wrestling quite seriously. With the life of CM Punk and Bryan danielson all are heading to the Rival promotion of WWE, it is a matter of worry for the boss Vince McMahon.

The reason must be WWE are so desperate to compete with AEW Rampage as both Rampage and Smackdown will be taking place on Friday night. And CM Punk is in the house of  AEW. WWE had to do something with it if they had to compete with AEW. A and this must have been there answer to CM Punk. We must say it is a great idea, WWE is doing their best. Now it would be interesting to see how fans take it and the battle would be really interesting now.

The match was fun but as a segment. During the match, Big E interfered to get his money in the bank contract and Corbin once again tried to escape with the briefcase but Big E stopped him and beating him down. Somehow Corbin managed to escape with the contract.

Match 3 – Shotzi and Nox defeated Natalya and Tamina

Seth Rollins came out to the arena to cut a promo on his match against Edge at Summerslam. He kept insulting  Edge and said he had no Chance at SummerSlam against him. The important part of the promo was blood bath that Edge gave Rollins in the old fashioned style of the Brood. It was not blood though, because of PG reasons.

Match 4 – Otis defeated Montez Ford

Another progress in this tag team feud through this match even though it was completely dominated by Otis. He pinned Montez Ford with a Body Splash.

It was actually a series of two matches and both of the matches were won by Bianca Belair. Zelina Vega was the first opponent who was totally dominated by Belair. Carmella gave a good fight but at the end, Bianca pinned Carmella with the Kiss of Death. The second match was very good.

Roman Reigns and John Cena for the main event segment of the night. Roman Reigns reminded he was not beaten in the recent time and there was no chance Cena would be beating him at Summerslam. Cena said Roman had no chance at Summerslam and his 17th world title reign was coming at the event.

Roman said he would have gone to Hollywood as well if he wanted to. Roman then made a shocking announcement. She said if he could not beat Cena at SummerSlam he would leave the WWE. Cena stood as the stronger man as this week’s SmackDown went off air.

Overall the event was good. But this could not be enough to compete with AEW Rampage since CM Punk has made his debut at the show. WWE has to come up with bigger things to compete with AEW now. This week good, but not enough to stand by AEW. We give it 2.5 stars out of 5
