WWE Friday Night SmackDown Quick Recap for 7/09/2021

- Money in the Bank Qualifier: King Shinsuke Nakamura vs Baron Corbin. King Nakamura won and will advance to the MitB ladder match. 8:31-8:41pm EST.
- Women's Non-Title Tag Team Match: WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Tamina & Natalya vs Shotzi Blackheart & Nox. Short match, Shotzi & Nox impressed in the limited time they were given. 8:47-8:52pm CST.

Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
- Universal Acceptance: Universal Champion Roman Reigns, along with Paul Heyman, started our show with a 17-minute segment (only 7 minutes of it were Roman's entrance). During this segment, Jimmy & Jey Uso made amends with Roman seemingly and have rejoined the tribe.
- The Switcheroo: After Bayley's reported absence and upcoming nine-month rehabilitation, WWE Official Sonya Deville announced that Bianca Belair will defend her title next Friday on SmackDown, against Carmella, instead of at the PPV event. In addition, Liv Morgan will replace Carmella in the MitB match.
- Debut: Shotzi Blackheart & Nox (fka Tegan Nox) debuted tonight, taking on the Women's Tag Team champions Natalya and Tamina in a winning effort.
- Debuting Soon: Tonight, a video played promoting the upcoming debut of Toni Storm on SmackDown.
- Roman Reigns Entrance Timer: Began entrance at 8:04. Entered ring at 8:08. Actually spoke into mic at 8:11pm.

- How It All Ends: After three matches, our program's "main event" was a verbal showdown--then brawl--between Edge and the Usos. Edge dominated, and used a steel bar to assist in submission holds on both Usos repeatedly as Roman watched on from the ramp.
That does it for our final SmackDown from the ThunderDome. Have a safe and happy weekend, everyone.
