WWE Friday Night SmackDown Full Results (November 11th, 2023):
– Tonight’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown opens with LWO making their way to the ring. Rey Mysterio talks about last Saturday at Crown Jewel, how he put his United States Title on the line against Logan Paul and how Logan stole his title. Now, we all know the referee’s decision is final. But I truly believe that Logan couldn’t beat me if it wasn’t for those brass knuckles. Without those brass knuckles, I would be standing right here, still as the United States Champion. So, I promise I will do whatever I can to get a rematch with Logan Paul.
Carlito interrupts Rey and says nobody wants to see Rey as the United States Champion more than Carlito. But seriously, we’re not going to talk about Crown Jewel? Well, Carlito wants to talk about it. You’re blaming the wrong person, Rey, Rey. Don’t blame Logan. Blame the person that left the brass knuckles intentionally on the apron for him, Santos Escobar.
Then, Escobar gets in his face. Cruz Del Toro and Joaquin Wilde hold him back, and an angered Escobar leaves the ring. Rey and Zelina Vega chase after him as Del Toro and Wilde question why Carlito just did what he did.
– Bobby Lashley w/The Street Profits defeated Carlito w/The LWO via pinfall after LWO interference. After the match, Lashley and The Profits continue attacking Carlito as Escobar watches. Rey runs down with a chair in hand and forces Lashley and The Profits to retreat. Rey questions why Escobar did nothing, and the two begin to argue.
Rey checks on Carlito, but Escobar attacks him from behind. Rey lands a forearm on him that sends him to the ring apron and looks to help him up, but Escobar sends him crashing into the ring post spine first. Rey lands on the ring steps, and Escobar delivers a dropkick to them. Escobar tells Rey he was his hero, but he made him do this. He tells him that it was supposed to be the two of them.
– Cathay Kelley at backstage chasing after Santos Escobar as she looks for an answer as to why he attacked Rey. Escobar says Rey had it coming and walks out of the building.
– Bayley makes her way to the ring to address status of Damage CTRL. Bayley in the ring and she says she’s had a plan and a vision for IYO SKY and Dakota Kai since Damage CTRL first began, and everything she’s wanted to happen for them has. She says SKY has defeated the best in the business as the Women’s Champion, and it’s SKY’s era thanks to her plan.
Bayley says Crown Jewel should’ve been the group’s proudest moment, but she was blindsided by the return of Kairi Sane. She says Damage CTRL doesn’t do things that way and calls out IYO SKY.
IYO SKY’s music hits and she comes out with Dakota Kai and Kairi Sane beside her. Bayley questions why Sane is here. IYO SKY says she had a plan too to retain her title. She asks Bayley if that’s what wanted, and Bayley says it is. She throws it over to a video of her attacking Sane before she left WWE and explains that’s the reason she’s concerned about having Sane around.
Dakota Kai says Sane wasn’t brought into Damage CTRL to hurt Bayley. She says they wanted to take some of the weight off Bayley and says the group is stronger than ever. Now, Kairi Sane says she respects Bayley as leader of Damage CTRL and forgives her for the attack and offers a hug but Bayley says she doesn’t do that anymore.
Now, Bianca Belair’s music hits and she comes out. She says while Sane might forgive Bayley, she certainly doesn’t and says didn’t have the confidence to face her one-on-one like she thought. She then reveals that Damage CTRL will be facing her and two partners – Charlotte Flair and Asuka comes out. Both teams looks at each other to end the segment.
– Dragon Lee defeated Cedric Alexander via pinfall.
– LA Knight makes his way to the ring. Knight talks about his match against Roman Reigns for the title at WWE Crown Jewel. He says he wished he could say he fell short or lived up to expectations, but he’d be a liar if he did. He says he would’ve been the new Undisputed WWE Universal Champion if it weren’t for Jimmy Uso, then says he’s not done with The Bloodline until he owns Roman Reigns and the WWE.
Grayson Waller interrupts LA Knight. He tells Knight that he’s embarrassing himself and blaming everyone but him. He says maybe Knight isn’t the guy but he knows someone who is. He asks him if he really thinks he belongs in the ring with Reigns, and Knight reminds Waller of what happened to him at Crown Jewel. Knight takes a few more shots at Waller and says he’s about to take every bit of anger and frustration he has out on Waller. He drops Waller and sends him crashing out of the ring.
– LA Knight defeated Grayson Waller via pinfall.
– We got a video packing of the match between Solo Sikoa and John Cena at WWE Crown Jewel.
– Grayson Waller and Austin Theory comes out to the announce desk. They are angered by the Kevin Owens telecasts regarding Theory and Waller that he has been doing all night.

He looks to hit a Stunner on Theory in the middle of the ring, but Theory manages to get out. Waller tries sneaking up behind him, but Owens hits him with a Stunner.
– Bianca Belair, Charlotte Flair and Asuka vs IYO Sky, Kairi Sane and Bayley match ended in no contest after Asuka attacking Bianca Belair. At the closing moments of the match, Bianca tried to tag Asuka but she denied and sprays mists on her face.
