This week’s SmackDown started as footage from last week was shown where Roman Reigns fired Paul Heyman for saying that he was protecting him from Brock Lesnar. As he was beating down Heyman, Brock Lesnar came out and saved him.

Footage from earlier tonight was shown where Paul Heyman was interviewed by Kayla Braxton where Heyman said that he had to pay the price for telling the truth and he had been humiliated publicly. He also said that he did not regret about telling the truth and he was considering his retirement.

Match 13 – Miracle of 34 Street Fight – The New Day and Drew McIntyre defeated Madcap Moss and The Usos

It was a very entertaining and fun match to watch. But it was quite nasty by a lot of means. Drew McIntyre at the end pinned Madcap Moss to earn the victory for his side. The winner team celebrated as this week’s SmackDown went off air.

Overall, it was quite an entertaining week of Friday night smackdown, and it is more entertaining because of the gauntlet match. No response from either Brock Lesnar or Roman Reigns was a big downfall of this week. The promotion for Paul Heyman was quite good but not enough a mention of the main event segment of the show is definitely a big downfall. We give it 2.5 out of 5.
