WWE Friday Night SmackDown Quick Recap for 5/21/2021

Matches Tonight: 4
  • Our first match of the night was a big Six-Woman tag match between the teams of Bayley, Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler versus SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair and Women's Tag Team Champions Natalya & Tamina. Bayley, Baszler & Jax won by submission (Kirifuda Clutch from Baszler, on Natalya).
  • King Shinsuke Nakamura defeated King Corbin in singles competition (with a little help from musician Rick Boogs, who played lead guitar for Nakamura's entrance and exit). Cole called Nakamura the king so I'm rolling with it.
  • Dominik Mysterio defeated Robert Roode.
  • In our main event Fatal 4-way match for the Intercontinental Championship, champion Apollo Crews defeated Big E, Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn to retain the title. Aleister Black gave the assist to Crews by executing the Black Mass on Big E at the end.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Musician Rick Boogs played lead guitar live for Nakamura's entrance.
  • Seth Rollins once again attacked Cesaro. Cesaro, an arm in sling, was on his way to the ring to confront Reigns when Rollins viciously attacked him three times.
  • Next Week, the Usos will have their first tag match in over a year as they take on the Street Profits.
  • This coming Monday on Raw, Women's Tag Team Champions Natalya & Tamina will defend their titles against former champions Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler.

There were only four matches, but once again SmackDown outshines Raw. May you all have a wonderful weekend. Stay safe out there and have a great one!
