WWE Friday Night SmackDown Quick Recap for 4/30/2021

Matches Tonight: 4
  • Our first match of the night saw Bianca Belair & the Street Profits team up against Bayley & the Dirty Dawgs, with Belair and the Profits victorious in a ten minute, fast-paced match..
  • Our second match was a short but entertaining match between Jax & Baszler vs Natalya and Tamina. Tamina picked up the win with a Superfly Splash. Very watchable.
  • Our third match was for the Intercontinental Championship. Big E won by Disqualification when Commander Azeez interfered. Crews remains champion. After the match, Kevin Owens attempted to save Big E, Sami Zayn attacked Kevin Owens, and Azeez proceeded to destroy anyone not named "Apollo."
  • In our fourth and final/main event match for the WWE Universal Championship, as well as Daniel Bryan's SmackDown roster spot on the line, Roman Reigns defeated Daniel Bryan by Submission (Guillotine). Incredibly good, 35+ minute match!
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • In an early interview, Daniel Bryan stated that when he wins the Universal Title tonight, he's giving the first title defense to Cesaro. Seth Rollins took exception to this and will face Cesaro next week regardless of the title outcome tonight.
  • Another cryptic Aleister Black promo. They're implying some really odd stuff about a priest and him, so trigger warning?
  • Several different commercials ran, advertising (retro-80's style) that next week's SmackDown will be a Throw-Back edition!
  • Several superstars commented in on tonight's Universal title match to give it that "big fight feel."
  • Roman Reigns finally has a new theme and it's actually pretty decent.
