Here The WWE Friday Night SmackDown Full Results

– We go right to the ring and Paul Heyman is already out with the mic. Paul Heyman says as our Wise Man, he’s here to drop a few pearls of wisdom. Heyman says ever since he and Brock Lesnar conquered The Streak of WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker at WrestleMania, he doesn’t offer predictions, he delivers spoilers, and he’s got a bunch of them tonight so have your notepad ready.
Heyman says The Island of Relevancy is under a two prong attack – here on SmackDown, it’s Sami Zayn. A crazed psychopath competitor. Fans chant for Sami now. Here’s your first spoiler – Zayn is not here this evening. Fans boo. Heyman dismisses the idea of Zayn challenging Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and asks if you can really imagine Zayn as champion. Fans pop. Heyman says they’re also under attack on Monday Night Raw by Cody Rhodes. 
Paul Heyman says Cody backed him into a corner on Monday night and said all he wants to do is fight for a title when everyone keeps making it personal. Heyman calls Rhodes a dumbass and says he didn’t know WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes raised an idiot for a son. Heyman says it couldn’t be more personal, and these aren’t wrestling championship belts, they are the centerpiece of The Island of Relevancy, the reason we’re here in WWE, the family crest of the Fatu and Anoa’i Dynasties, and so on. Heyman says let’s be clear – without these tiles there is no Island of Relevancy, there is no Bloodline, there is no Paul Heyman, there is no Roman Reigns.
Sami Zayn suddenly appears behind Heyman, and he’s angry. Fans chant “Sami!” now. Heyman turns around and Sami slowly walks around him. Sami says he’s not going to hurt Heyman but if he wanted to by now, he could’ve. Don’t you think that’s weird? I could’ve dropped you like a bag of dirt and no one is here to protect you. If this was a month ago, Solo Sikoa would’ve already put me down, and the same goes for The Usos, but now you’re out here all by yourself and I think you know why… because you know what the other members of The Bloodline all know – Reigns’ days at the top are numbered. Reigns is off the rails and everything is crumbling. 
Sami Zayn says he left The Bloodline, Jey Uso walked out on his own. What do you think Jimmy Uso will do next… side with his abusive cousin or his twin brother? What about Sikoa? Sami Zayn says Roman Reigns pulled Solo Sikoa closer to his hip and isolated him as soon as he saw Sikoa could think on his own. Sami says Heyman looks at Roman Reigns a little weird and creepy, like sun shines out of his ass, but here you are now talking about life after Reigns, after the titles are gone… because you know what the others know, that The Bloodline is on the way out. Fans pop.
Sami says he’s got another spoiler for Heyman. Sami says he’s going to tell Heyman exactly how many days Reigns has left. 8… 8 days from tonight, in Montreal at WWE Elimination Chamber, that is all the time Reigns has left. Fans chant for Sami again as Heyman offers his hand, either for a shake but likely for the mic. Zayn aggressively pulls Heyman close to him and holds him there. We see Heyman looking terrified. The title belts drop to the mat. Sami says to tell Reigns he doesn’t have to worry about Rhodes because Zayn will be the one to take him down. Zayn exits the ring as Heyman kneels down and picks the titles back up.
– We see Drew McIntyre and The Brawling Brutes backstage getting aggressive with each other.
– We see earlier video of Hit Row confronting Adam Pearce backstage about how Braun Strowman and Ricochet replaced Sheamus and Drew McIntyre in the tag team tournament, and how Hit Row knows they would’ve defeated Sheamus and Drew McIntyre to advance. Adam Pearce then made Sheamus & Drew McIntyre vs. Hit Row.
– Sheamus and Drew McIntyre defeated Hit Row via pinfall. After the match, Sheamus and Drew stand tall and they pose in the corner as the crowd cheers them on, but a video of The Viking Raiders and Valhalla begins playing on the big screen. The trio is around a fire. Valhalla says she hears the Gods and they are telling her they have chosen two warriors, once destined for greatness and now sentenced to sacrifice. 
We see Valhalla applying war paint to Erik and Ivar. Erik says Drew’s name, and Ivar says Sheamus’ name. Valhalla says the chill in the air is not winter approaching. Erik says it’s pain, Ivar says it’s suffering. Valhalla says next week it’s destiny. We go back to Sheamus and McIntyre, and they look a bit concerned but not too much. Sheamus and Drew go back to hyping the crowd up.
– Jimmy Uso at backstage on the phone, trying to get in touch with Jey Uso.
– Karrion Kross at backstage with Scarlett. Kross says tonight he will win the Fatal 4 Way, then the WWE Intercontinental Title. Scarlett says Kross will do what he has to do, but she wants to hear him say it. Kross then says he will make Rey Mysterio suffer and put him down. This excites Scarlett, who then laughs.
– We see Jimmy Uso on the phone again, still trying to get in touch with his brother. He leaves another message and asks his brother to please call him back.
– Lacey Evans defeated enhancement talent Carmen Harress via submission. After the bell, the referee pleads with Evans to let go of her opponent. She finally does and she is announced the winner via submission.
– Jimmy Uso at backstage again, frustrated over reaching Jey Uso’s voicemail again. Paul Heyman is there, and he says this must mean Jimmy can’t reach his brother. Jimmy says he’s tried everything, he’s called Jey’s girlfriend, their younger brother, and Jey hasn’t called him back once. Jimmy says he needs Jey on this biggest night of their careers, and he can’t go out there and defend with no partner. 
Pau Heyman asks respectfully, why no member of the family came out to help him when that psychopathic Canadian Sami Zayn was holding him hostage. Jimmy says he’s been back here dealing with this and no one else is here. Jimmy jokes that Heyman can defend the titles with him. Heyman says Jimmy has to defend on his own tonight. Jimmy is confident Jey will show up there for him, but he doesn’t seem so sure of what he says.
– Sonya Deville at backstage now complaining to Adam Pearce about how she’s not in the Chamber. Chelsea Green walks up and she’s looking for the SmackDown manager to file a complaint on the Raw manager. Pearce says that’s him, the same guy. Green says he’s being rude. Green says she has facial amnesia, then asks if Pearce is discriminating against her. Pearce says no. 
Chelsea Green asks Deville if she can believe how Pearce is talking to them. Deville says there is no “us” and never will be. Pearce says they both want special treatment but around here you have to earn your opportunities. Pearce says they both have so much in common. Pearce books Green and Deville vs. Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez for tonight. Green protests but Pearce says it’s official, then he walks off. Deville isn’t friendly with Green as she rolls her eyes.
– The #1 contenders Ricochet and Braun Strowman came to for the tag team titles match. Out next comes Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champion Jimmy Uso to defend just the SmackDown Tag Team Titles. Jimmy looks worried and there’s no sign of his brother. Samantha Irvin does formal ring introductions but before she can finish, a spotlight shines on the stairs in the crowd and here comes Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champion Jey Uso. Fans pop and chant “Uso!” now. Jimmy is glad to see his brother and they hug as soon as he steps through the ropes. The Usos raise their titles in the air.
– The Usos defeated Ricochet and Braun Strowman via pinfall and successfully retained their SmackDown Tag Team titles. After the match, The Usos sit up and clutch their titles. Jimmy and Jey embrace in the middle of the ring now.
– We go backstage to Rey Mysterio. He says Karrion Kross is an evil human being. Rey then speaks some in Spanish. Rey says he’s been an underdog his entire life, and nothing is going to prevent him from winning tonight’s Fatal 4 Way and then moving on to become the new WWE Intercontinental Champion.
– The Usos are walking at backstage. Jey Uso says he’s got his brother’s back every single day, they’re twins, and he would never leave his brother in the dark. Jimmy Uso says it’s been hell since Jey has been away, so are you in or out? Jey says he doesn’t know, then he walks off. Paul Heyman was watching from behind a column. He steps out and asks Jimmy if that was his brother. Jimmy says yes. Heyman asks if Jey had anything to say. Jimmy says no, he just left.
– Natalya makes her way to the ring. She says it feels good to be going back to the Elimination Chamber but she has something she wants to get off her chest. She says for the first time in 15 years, Shayna Baszler took her out, busted her nose and made her see red. Natalya says since Baszler took something from her, she took something from Baszler, her Elimination Chamber spot. She says Baszler is nothing but a cheap knock-off of Ronda Rousey. Natalya says she will go on to win the Elimination Chamber to advance to WrestleMania 39, and Baszler will go back to carrying Rousey’s bags.
The music interrupts and here comes Baszler. She can’t believe Natalya is calling her a Rousey knock-off. Baszler is sick and tired of people dismissing her accomplishments. Fans chant “knock-off Ronda!” now as Baszler enters the ring. She goes on about how she was wrestling before Rousey, she signed with WWE and was winning titles before Rousey. She doesn’t need Natalya and everyone else telling her she’s living in Rousey’s shadows. The music interrupts and here comes Rousey marching to the ring.
Rousey enters the ring and stares Baszler down. She goes for Natalya but Baszler holds her back. Baszler then drops Natalya with a cheap shot, which causes Rousey to smile. They double team Natalya now. Shotzi rushes out to make the save but she also gets beat down. Rousey sends Shotzi out, then slams Natalya. Baszler delivers another big knee to Natalya’s face. Natalya is sent to the floor, where she’s checked on by Shotzi. Rousey’s music starts back up as she and Baszler stand tall.
– Jey Uso walking at backstage when he sees Sami Zayn. Zayn welcomes him back, and says he can’t imagine what he’s going through, and doesn’t want to put him in a tough spot but he knows Roman Reigns very well, and Jey knows him even better, and he can’t imagine Reigns letting Jey get by with what he did at the Royal Rumble. Sami says it meant a lot what Jey did at The Rumble. Sami says they’re 8 days from something huge, from something he knows Jey has wanted to see for a long time, and that’s Reigns going down. 
Sami doesn’t know how he’s going to do it, but Reigns will go down, and Jey doesn’t have to go down with the ship, there’s a way out. Sami isn’t sure if they will get a chance to talk like this again but in case they don’t, Sami wants Jey to know… Sami is acknowledging Jey. Sami offers his fist for a bump but Jey says he better get out of here with that. Sami says he is but he keeps his fist up. Jey bumps it and fans in the arena cheer. Sami leaves.
– LA Knight is on the phone with someone but he hangs up to talk to Megan Morant. She says this is the first time we’ve seen LA since the Pitch Black match with Bray Wyatt. LA cuts her off and says we’re not talking about that match, or about Wyatt, because that’s in the past. LA says we’re looking forward to the future, and the future is LA Knight. Yeah. He walks off.
– Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez defeated Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville via pinfall. After the match, Rodriguez and Morgan stand tall and celebrate.
– Madcap Moss is with Emma at backstage. He says things have not gone his way recently, but that all changes tonight. Emma says he’s got this. Moss says when you look good you feel good, and when you feel good you play good, and thanks to his babe, he looks great. Moss says after he gets this win tonight, it’s onto GUNTHER and the WWE Intercontinental Title. Emma and Moss love on each other.
– Michael Cole shows us his sitdown interview with SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, filmed earlier today. Cole says we’re 40 days away from Rhea Ripley vs. Flair at WrestleMania 39, and they have a lot of history together. Cole recalls how Ripley challenged Flair at WrestleMania 3 years ago, and Flair put her in her place, but now 3 years later Ripley believes it’s her time and everyone will rise for her. Flair says 3 years ago Ripley chose her because she knew Flair was the top of the mountain she had to climb. Flair says they had their match, she was impressed with Ripley and thought she did great, but Ripley was young, green, not ready, and Flair won. 
Charlotte Flair mentions how Rhea Ripley says she’s ready now but Flair would hope she’s ready a full 3 years later. Flair says she’s still saying the same things 3 years later, about how there are levels to this. She said it then and she’s saying it now. Cole asks if Ripley is at Flair’s level. Flair says it’s going to take her more than 3 years to get there. Flair says Ripley said Flair put her in her place 3 years ago, but no, she taught her a lesson 3 years ago and now at WrestleMania 39 in front of 80,000 fans, she will put Ripley in her place once and for all.
– Madcap Moss defeated Karrion Kross, Santos Escobar and Rey Mysterio via pinfall and became the new #1 contender to WWE Intercontinental Championship. After the match, the music hits as Emma hits the ring to celebrate with Moss. GUNTHER, Giovanni Vinci and Ludwig Kaiser look down at the ring from their luxury box.
– We go backstage to Jimmy Uso. Paul Heyman walks in and says he was just on the phone with Roman Reigns, and he would put Jimmy on the phone with The Tribal Chief but there’s no reception in here. Paul Heyman says Roman Reigns is very proud of Jimmy Uso and says Jimmy was right, his brother is very loyal to him. Paul Heyman says he and Roman Reigns have this thing figured out for next week’s SmackDown in Montreal. 
Roman Reigns needs an on-TV-perspective, so he wants The Usos to stay home and watch the show on TV because you know, sometimes you see things on TV that you don’t see when you’re here live. Paul Heyman aggressively pats Jimmy Uso on the arm and walks off. Jimmy looks a bit concerned or confused as Friday Night SmackDown goes off the air.
