WWE Friday Night Smackdown Quick Recap for 2/05/2021

Matches Tonight: 5
  • Our first match of the night saw King Corbin taking on Dominik Mysterio for the second week in a row. Dominik Mysterio won after Rey Mysterio helped him cheat. Rey snuck under the ring and grabbed Corbin's leg as he attempted to enter, unseen by the ref, and allowing Dominik to hit the 6-1-9.
  • Cesaro defeated Daniel Bryan by submission in a short, but very entertaining match that saw Bryan return to some of his high-flying antics, and Cesaro end the match with a bloodied head.
  • Bayley defeated Ruby Riott in singles competition.
  • Smackdown Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode defeated Otis & Chad Gable in non-title action. Ziggler & Roode now have matching attire and a new theme (and it's lame).
  • In our main event triple threat match for Big E's Intercontinental Championship, Big E defeated Sami Zayn and Apollo Crews.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Reigns opened our program and, after a lengthy speech, demanded that Edge show up to the arena and give Reigns his decision--either main event with Roman Reigns...or else.
  • Bianca Belair did not choose an opponent yet. Sasha Banks encourages Bianca to pick her; Reginald the Sommelier for Carmella warns Bianca that if she chooses Sasha Banks, she will lose.
  • As tonight marked the 33rd anniversary of Hulk Hogan dropping the title, controversially, to Andre the Giant at the Main Event. We then cut to Hulk Hogan, pre-recorded, who was on to speak. He was supposed to give his pick for whom he thinks Edge should fight but, instead, said that Edge had the Hulkamaniacs at his back and he'd beat whomever he chose. Lots of hype, little payoff.
  • Edge closed our program, making his way out to the ring. He spoke of his dream during rehab to come back and win the Rumble and main event WrestleMania. Roman Reigns came out and demanded that Edge choose him to main event with. Kevin Owens surprised everyone by coming out of nowhere to hit the Stunner on Roman Reigns and end our program.
