WWE Friday Night Smackdown Quick Recap for 12/18/2020
For those of you who want just the quick results and don't want the details of matches, this is a quick recap of tonight's show. There are spoilers for tonight's show below. The full results can be found right here.
A quick head's up--tonight featured only four matches, and many, many segments building up the Kevin Owens/Roman Reigns match at TLC this Sunday.
Matches Tonight: 4
- The Street Profits retained their tag team titles against Ziggler & Roode. Montez Ford of the Street Profits is selling badly-injured ribs and they barely pulled off the win.
- The Riott Squad defeated the team of Billie Kay and her partner-of-the-week, Tamina.
- Otis, coached by Chad Gable, defeated Shinsuke Nakamura in singles competition. Gable told Otis not to hit the Caterpillar in the match and instead finish Shinsuke with a suplex, and the distraction almost cost Otis the match. Afterwards, Gable said it was a test and Otis shouldn't do what Gable says, he should do what Gable means.
- In our main event, Bayley defeated Bianca Belair. Bayley raked the eyes of Belair when the ref was out of position, aiding her in picking up the win.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments:
Kevin Owen started our show calling out Roman Reigns, and then searched around backstage, looking for him.
Roman Reigns cut a promo in the ring. When Kevin Owens came out to confront him, Jey Uso attacked him and both tribal members beat on KO until officials forced them apart.
Kevin Owens, again, went looking for Roman. Again, Owens was ambushed by Uso and had the tar beaten out of him with a steel chair.
And again, as Kevin Owens is being checked out backstage by medical personnel, Jey Uso attacks Owens and leaves him laying on the floor.
Charles Robinson, Ric Flair's favorite ref aka Lil Natch, went off on Ziggler and Roode after they tried to intimidate them after their loss.
Carmella decided to have a lil' bit of the bubbly in a segment that saw her mocking Banks until Banks hit the ring, and for the second week in a row Carmella broke a bottle of champagne across Sasha Banks' head/back.
There was a very weird "Happy Holidays" segment from the WWE, that featured Braun Strowman voicing an animated, slimey "2020." Several superstars hit thier signature moves and finishers on "2020" until "2021" came out and defeated it. Yeah, it's werid.
The Sami Awards segment saw Sami award himself multiple awards, but Big E won Superstar of the Year--much to Sami's surprise. Big E thanks several people for making this award possible, then attacks Zayn, sending the IC champ rolling down the ramp.
Roman Reigns with Paul Heyman & Jey Uso came out to the ring to end our program with a massive beating of Kevin Owens. They put him through two tables, hit him with multiple chair shots, and buried him in a pile of broken tables, a dozen or more chairs, and multiple ladders. When they headed to the back, they saw KO drag himself out from the rubble of the carnage and get on a mic to tell Roman that KO was going to win the Universal title or die trying.
