WWE Friday Night SmackDown Quick Recap for December 3, 2021

Matches Tonight: Five
  • Singles Match: Sasha Banks vs Shayna Baszler. Solid match that could've used more time. Banks picked up the win via roll-up. 8:20-8:29pm EST.
  • Tag Match: Los Lotharios vs the Viking Raiders. Los Lotharios picked up the win after Boogs inadvertently distracted them. 8:48-8:50pm EST.
  • Singles Match: King Woods w/ Sir Kofi vs Jey Uso w/ Jimmy Uso. The short-match trend continues as Woods picked up the win via DQ when Jimmy Uso interfered. 9:03-9:05pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Sheamus vs Cesaro. Sheamus won the short match clean with a Brogue Kick. 9:25-9:28pm EST.
  • Universal Championship Main Event Match: Roman Reigns(c) w/ Paul Heyman vs Sami Zayn w/ Brock Lesnar. After Zayn insulted Lesnar pre-match, Lesnar hit Suplex City and a pair of F5's on Zayn. Reigns easily smashed and squashed the Liberator in roughly 20-30 seconds, max. The match consisted entirely of: bell, spear, guillotine, tap. 9:57-9:58pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • The Beast is Back: Lesnar returned but was interrupted by current number-one contender Sami Zayn. Lesnar strong-armed Zayn into stating he (Zayn) would use his title shot tonight, instead of at Day 1. 8:04-8:12pm EST.
  • Happy Talk: Moss made a joke about Hardy, then about McIntyre. Hardy hit the ring and hit Twists of Fate on both Moss and Corbin, and McIntyre threw in a Claymore for the giggles in this pointless segment. 8:36-8:40pm EST.
  • "Storm Warning": I didn't name the segment, WWE did. Flair addressed Toni Storm's challenge for her title and declined to accept it, stating Storm isn't on her level. 8:15-8:17pm EST.
  • Day 1 Match Added: Universal Champion Roman Reigns will defend against Brock Lesnar, as Sami Zayn had his title shot tonight instead of Day 1.
  • Next Week on SmackDown: Xia Li, who hates vultures that mistake women for weak, and will make her debut at next week. Jeff Hardy gets his hands on Happy Corbin, and Sonya Deville returns to wrestling as she'll take on Naomi!
