WWE Friday Night Smackdown Quick Recap for 2/12/2021

Matches Tonight: 5
  • Our first match was a tag team match, with the winning team gaining a spot in the Elimination Chamber. King Corbin & Sami Zayn defeated The Mysterios and are now officially in the Elimination Chamber.
  • Big E defeated Shinsuke Nakamura to retain his Intercontinental Championship after Apollo Crews attacked Big E, causing a DQ. Crews was upset because Big E refused to give him one more shot, with Big E pointing out he's beaten Crews enough.
  • Bayley defeated Liv Morgan after Billie Kay, once again, caused a distraction on accident.
  • In a short but great match, the Street Profits defeated the Alpha Academy (Chad Gable & Otis).
  • Our main event match, the second Elimination Chamber Qualifier, was a tag team battle between the SmackDown Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode and Daniel Bryan & Cesaro. The match was great and saw Bryan & Cesaro win by submission (Cesaro with the Sharpshooter on Ziggler). Both men have been added to the Smackdown Men's Elimination Chamber match.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Roman Reign's "Blockbuster Announcement": the Men's Elimination Chamber for SmackDown has a new perk--the winner will get a title shot against Roman Reigns right on the spot. Kevin Owens & Jey Uso were the first two announced as being added; the remainder of the spots will be determined in qualifying matches.
  • Roman Reigns continued his threatening of Adam Pearce.
  • Seth Rollins returned, claiming that being a father has made him a new man. He then immediately proceeded to do the same stuff he did on Raw, telling all the SmackDown roster around the ring that he wanted to help them suceed and be bigger than they are now. He's the "SmackDown Savior" now. Everyone left the ringside area except Cesaro. Rollins tried to recruit Cesaro and, when Cesaro refused, he viciously attacked him.

The Smackdown Men's Elimination Chamber Match will see Daniel Bryan, Cesaro, Jey Uso, King Corbin, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens vie for the win--which will reward the winner with a title shot against Roman Reigns on the spot, per Paul Heyman. The Elimination Chamber is a week from Sunday.
