WWE Friday Night SmackDown Quick Recap for 4/16/2021

Matches Tonight: 5
  • Our first match saw Rey Mysterio defeat Otis of the Alpha Academy.
  • Our second match was a WrestleMania rematch and, once again, Kevin Owens defeated Sami Zayn. This time, however, by count-out as Zayn gave up.
  • Our third match, for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship, saw the Dirty Dawgs--Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode--retain over the Street Profits.
  • Our fourth match was a short one that saw Natalya defeat Shayna Baszler due to a distraction by Nia Jax (unintentional).
  • Our fifth and main event match saw Cesaro defeat Jey Uso by DQ after Seth Rollins attacked.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Our new commentary team is Michael Cole & Pat McAfee.
  • Roman opened our program, extolling his victory over Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns. He said no one could stand up to him and when Cesaro made his way out to challenge, Roman walked off. Later on, Heyman accepted--but on Jey Uso's behalf.
  • Bianca Belair and the Street Profits held a victory party for Belair. Belair's husband is Montez Ford of the Street Profits, if you didn't know.
  • Bayley planted the seeds for a feud with Belair and challenged the champ, promising to restore dignity to the title if she wins it.
  • Cesaro's "UFO Spin" move from WrestleMania had no less than three video package replays.
