WWE Friday Night Smackdown Results:
– The show opened with John Morrison on Miz TV. Miz apologized to the audience for what he did to Kofi Kingston last week, and Morrison chastised them for turning their backs on Miz after one bad night. New Day interrupted, with Kofi saying that Miz does, in fact, suck. This set up Kingston vs. Miz with Morrison and Big E at ringside.
1. The Miz defeated Kofi Kingston. Miz picked a fight with Big E, allowing John Morrison to sneak attack him and take him out. Kingston was distracted by this, so Miz hit a Skull-crushing Finale on him to win the match.
– Bray Wyatt cut a Firefly Funhouse promo about how The Fiend is going to hurt Daniel Bryan at Royal Rumble.
– Elias sung a song about how he’s going to win the Royal Rumble, as well as Erick Rowan’s pet, a Lana and Bobby Lashley sex tape, and Brock Lesnar.
– Mandy Rose gave Otis an “I’m sorry” cake as an apology for what Dolph Ziggler did to his mom’s fruitcake.
2. Mandy Rose defeated Alexa Bliss. Heavy Machinery wandered out to the ring to their music so Otis could eat cake on the ramp and stare. This caused a distraction, allowing Rose to roll up Bliss to win the match.
– Sasha Banks vs. Lacey Evans didn’t happen. Evans was in the ring, but Banks never showed up. Bayley appeared on the TitanTron to say Sasha was “AWOL” and went to Los Angeles instead. Evans pandered to the local crowd, who chanted “USA.” Evans then went backstage and brawled with Bayley until Bayley ran away.
– A Daniel Bryan interview was interrupted by Ramblin’ Rabbit, who tried to tell Bryan the secret to defeating The Fiend. Bray stopped the puppet before he could reveal this secret, however, and later in the show Ramblin’ Rabbit’s murdered corpse was delivered to Bryan in a box.
3. Braun Strowman defeated Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura with a powerslam.
– Sheamus cut a promo on Chad Gable, saying that small things need to be exterminated.
– The Usos and Roman Reigns cut a promo about being a united front heading into the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. King Corbin and Dolph Ziggler interrupted, setting up another Corbin vs. Reigns match at Royal Rumble (in addition to them being in the Royal Rumble match). The Usos hit dives onto Corbin’s security, leading into the match.
4. King Corbin and Dolph Ziggler defeated The Usos by disqualification when Roman Reigns speared Corbin. After the match, Robert Roode returned from suspension, and the heels beat down Reigns and the Usos. Roode hit spinebustered Reigns onto the announce table but it didn’t break, so Ziggler climbed up onto it and put Reigns through with an elbow drop.
