Here The WWE Friday Night SmackDown Full Results:

– The Brawling Brutes – Ridge Holland and Butch making their way to the ring. We know Sheamus is off getting married this weekend, but Michael Cole says he suffered a non-displaced fracture of the radial head of the elbow, and he is currently at home in an elbow brace, with a limited range of motion. Cole says The Celtic Warrior is also undergoing intense physical therapy. 
We go to backstage, The Bloodline getting hyped up. Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champion Jey Uso thinks Sami Zayn wants him to stay back, but Sami says the opposite, tonight is all hands on deck because last week was a black eye on The Bloodline, and when Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns arrives, he needs to see their arms raised in victory. Sami says he helped Sami with Kofi Kingston a few weeks back, so he needs to know if Jey can bring that same action this week. The music hits and here comes The Bloodline now – Sami Zayn and Solo Sikoa with Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos – Jey and Jimmy Uso.
– Butch and Ridge Holland defeated Sami Zayn and Solo Sikoa via pinfall with interference of Jey Uso. After the match, Sami Zayn can’t believe what just happened. Butch and Holland celebrates to the back. Jey and Sami are arguing in the ring now. Jimmy watches, as does Sikoa. Jey shoves Sikoa away a bit. Jimmy aggressively turns Jey around and now they are facing off, having words. The music interrupts and here comes The Head of the Table Roman Reigns.
– The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns makes his way out with Paul Heyman now. Sami Zayn, Solo Sikoa and Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos are all looking around in the ring, worried, concerned, afraid to look up. A disappointed Reigns stops at ringside.
The Bloodline is in the ring. Reigns takes the mic from Heyman, then tells St. Louis to acknowledge him. Reigns says usually there is an order to things, but we are going to change things around tonight. The fans acknowledged him, but now we are going to acknowledge the elephant in the room. Reigns says Sami and Jey want to act like kids, they will be treated like kids. Reigns says he believes in handling business in the ring, but it looks like Sami and Jey can’t do that.
Reigns wants the problem fixed, so he wants them to both put it all on the table tonight. Sami takes the mic and admits there has been a communication break-up as of late, and he feels like specifically it’s with Jey. Sami doesn’t understand what’s going on. He likes Jey, always has, but Jey can’t stand him since he stated hanging with The Bloodline. Sami says Jimmy and Solo seem fine, but he’s sorry and doesn’t know what he did to Jey, and doesn’t want this going on any longer. Fans pop and Sami apologizes again. Sami asks if they can bury the hatchet once and for all. Sami offers his hand for a shake but Jey hesitates.
Jey says Sami has 2 seconds to get his hand away. Jey doesn’t like Sami, doesn’t like his hair, his face, his shirt, being around Jey’s family every week. Jey asks Sami how he’s part of The Bloodline when he’s not blood. Jey says Sami never will be, and he doesn’t belong, and no one in the group likes Sami, it’s just that Jey is the only one who will say it out loud. Jey says Sami is a fake a** Uce. Jey says the difference between them is that he sheds blood for his family, because they are blood. 
Jey goes on and Sami asks why he’s yelling at him. Sami says The Tribal Chief just said… Jey interrupts and says he doesn’t give a damn what The Tribal Chief says. Fans go wild. Roman looks up now. Roman turns around to face Jey. Jey steps up and he’s fuming now. Reigns looks Jey over. Sami says what Jey said was super messed up, but he didn’t mean it, Jey has just been going through a lot and hasn’t been himself lately, hasn’t been very Uce-y lately. Reigns smiles and Jey wants to. Fans chant “Uce-y!” now. 
Reigns continues to laugh while Jey waits. Sami is also smiling. Reigns asks if that’s the problem – Jey isn’t feeling Uce-y? Uce-y? Reigns says if Jey can’t find his inner Uce-y again, Reigns will do something Jey won’t like – he will take the “Honorary” off Sami’s name, and make him a full-blown Uce. Sami likes the sound of this. Reigns says no wait, if Jey doesn’t figure this out, we will just change Sami’s name to Sami Uso.
Sami is wide-eyed, excited at the idea of becoming an Uso. Fans chant “Sami Uso!” now. Heyman is handed the mic now. He says it looks like The Tribal Chief has called an end to this segment. Heyman says to catch Reigns on Peacock next weekend at WWE Crown Jewel as he defends the title against Logan Paul. Fans boo at the mention of Logan Paul. Roman Reigns turns and walks out of the ring while the others look on.

– Kayla Braxton at backstage with Sonya Deville. Kayla asks if Deville will be answering Ronda Rousey’s Open Challenge. Deville says she won’t ruin the element of surprise, but one person who won’t be answering the Open Challenge is Liv Morgan. Deville goes on about Liv but suddenly Liv attacks from out of nowhere. They continue brawling as Liv snaps. Officials try to keep them apart but the backstage brawl continues.
– Braun Strowman at backstage. He brings up the saying that there’s always someone bigger and stronger than you. He says Omos is clearly bigger than him, but stronger? We see some clips of Braun tipping over cars and stuff in the past. He says everyone has seen him rip doors off cars, flip over ambulances, pick up tractor trailers… why? Because it was a challenge to him and it excited him. 
Braun Strowman further said that he felt some of that same excitement when he looked the Giant Omos in the eyes last week, and he thought, wow what a challenge this could be for me because when it comes to challenges, the bigger the better. Braun says at WWE Crown Jewel, Omos will find out real quick that there is no giant too big for The Monster of All Monsters. Braun laughs and snarls to end the segment.
– The SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey makes her way to the ring for an Open Challenge title defense. Rousey takes the mic and says it looks like the belt is back where it belongs. Rousey says we’re in luck because she happens to be in the mood to prove it with an Open Challenge. She doesn’t expect the fans to be grateful to have an active champion, or recognize how she is ready to defend any time, because only the great can recognize greatness, and you’re all too mediocre to know what you’re looking at. The boos get louder. Rousey says let’s get this formality out of the way… who’s feeling lucky? Rousey drops the mic and gets ready.
The music hits and here comes Emma making her return to WWE. Emma gets a pop and heads to the ring, all smiles. She hits the corner to pose as Rousey stares her down.

Jey walks off and Heyman looks stressed out.
– Shayna Baszler at backstage with Ronda Rousey, congratulating her on taking care of the new girl. Natalya walks up and says she doesn’t know if Rousey is the baddest or the luckiest woman because if Natalya answered that Open Challenge, Rousey would’ve lost the title. Baszler steps behind Natalya, punches her in the back, then chokes her out to the floor. Baszler walks off with Rousey while Natalya struggles to breathe on the floor. 
– We go to the ring Legado Del Fantasma is the ring. The music hits and here comes Hit Row now – “Top Dolla” AJ Francis and Ashante “Thee” Adonis with “B-Fab” Briana Brandy. B-Fab addresses Legado and says they won’t fight Hit Row in their faces. She says Hit Row is on the rise, and they have friends in high places. The music hits and out comes Shinsuke Nakamura as their mystery partner.
– Hit Row and Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Legado Del Fantasma via pinfall. After the match, Nakamura he stands tall with Hit Row to celebrate. Vega is stressed out at ringside as Legado del Fantasma recovers.
– Paul Heyman at backstage with Roman Reigns and asks to please watch one simple piece of footage. A video of Logan Paul training in a boxing ring pops up on the screen. Heyman pauses it now. Reigns asks why they’re watching this. Heyman says it takes just one lucky punch. Reigns says that won’t happen. Heyman was at the synagogue, sitting next to his doctor, who knows a doctor that knows Paul’s doctor, and it was said that Paul once broke his hand, and has pins put into the hand.
Roman Reigns points to how Paul has only had two matches. Heyman points to Brock Lesnar but he gets a big nervous because Reigns isn’t liking what he is hearing. Heyman says it’s a good time for him to leave and go get the jet fired up. Heyman thanks Reigns for his time, then leaves. Reigns shakes his head. 
– LA Knight at backstage with Megan Morant now. Knight mentions the ring announcer previously getting his hometown wrong. Ricochet interrupts and says Knight might get a warmer reception around here if he didn’t act like he is God’s gift to SmackDown. Ricochet is just trying to help LA out, he says. Knight steps to Ricochet and Ricochet says when your head grows as big as LA’s, someone else is likely to knock it off. LA says Ricochet is right – he is God’s gift to SmackDown. Knight walks off, yeah. Ricochet yells at him and says if he keeps running his mouth, he promises someone will shut it.
– Karrion Kross defeated Madcap Miss via pinfall. After the match, Kross immediately applies the Kross Jacket submission to Moss. Scarlett brings him the mic. Kross yells for Drew McIntyre and says Moss put up a much better fight than Drew did because he’s not a coward or hypocrite like Drew. Kross says Drew stands for absolutely nothing other than his own ambitions and we’ve all seen Drew’s true face.
Karrion Kross says he will always stand for the new beginning, and at Crown Jewel when they lock them in the Steel Cage, Kross promises history will repeat itself. Tick, Tock. Kross drops the mic and tightens the Kross Jacket again. Fans boo as referees try to get the hold broken. Kross refuses but Scarlett finally gets him to let up.

They hold him while GUNTHER yells in his face, then rips his shirt open. GUNTHER delivers a huge chop to the chest, then leaves Rey laying. Imperium walks off as Rey clutches his chest.
– Bray Wyatt’s music starts up to a pop as the fireflies light the arena up. The arena lights go out and when the lantern lights up, we see Bray Wyatt heading to the ring. Wyatt takes the mic as fans cheer him on. He says he could really get used to this. Do you feel that? Fans pop again.
Bray Wyatt says the adrenaline is like… oh my God. He laughs. Fans chant “welcome back!” now. Wyatt says when fans do that, it makes him feel vulnerable, like he needs to do something loud. Wyatt wants fans to see something he’s very proud of. He says it’s just Wyatt and the fans, no mask he’s hiding behind, no smoke and mirrors, just me and you… Wyatt says get used to this, this is Bray Wyatt, the real man.
Wyatt says this is the best version of him that he will ever be, he is proud to be here today and he’s going to do some spectacular things while he’s here. The truth is… the majority of Wyatt’s life, he’s been completely out of control, and he can’t help that, man. Wyatt’s emotions don’t work like most other people, he doesn’t have control sometimes, and sometimes they can send him to a very, very dark place, other times no matter how hard he tries, he just doesn’t feel anything at all. Fans cheer as Wyatt paces around. 
Wyatt further says this is part of what makes him, right? For Wyatt to get here, he’s had to do some really horrible things and there’s part of him that truly is not afraid to do all of the things, when he’s faced with diversity… graphics flash on the screen, including a QR code. It looks like Uncle Howdy is here.
The Uncle Howdy mask with the distorted voice appears on the big screen. It looks like this might be Wyatt in a large mask that makes him look like a bizarre older uncle. Who am I? Howdy asks. He says he’s just the ghost from the man who saved the world, of course. Howdy laughs. Howdy goes on taunting Wyatt, and says the people are the reason Wyatt is a shell of what he once was. He also says something about knowing the truth about how Wyatt doesn’t wear the mask. He says you cannot run from your Uncle Howdy. A tear runs down Howdy’s face. The graphics flash again and the Wyatt logo appears on the screen as Friday Night SmackDown goes off the air.
