WWE Friday Night SmackDown Episode #1,138 Quick Recap for 6/11/2021

Matches Tonight: Only Four
  • Our first match saw Kevin Owens & Big E defeat Sami Zayn & Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews in a 20 minute, entertaining match. 8:11-8:32pm
  • Our second match saw "the Most Beautiful Woman in All of WWE" Carmella (yes, that's how they billed her) lose to Liv Morgan in a rematch from last week in a short, but enjoyable, match. 8:48-8:52
  • Montez Ford of the Street Profits defeated Chad Gable of the Alpha Academy by Disqualification after Otis interfered. Very technical match, but impressive. 9:15-9:27
  • King Shinsuke Nakamura defeated the false-king Corbin in our main event, rolling him up to steal the win. This is the third week in a row they've played this game of thrones, battling of the crown, with Rick Boogz assisting King Shinsuke Nakamura. 9:31-9:38
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Jimmy Uso opened our show, cutting a promo on Roman. Jimmy is not cool with his cousin and accused Roman of trying to take his brother away. There were several segments throughout the night that set up tension between Roman Reigns and a defiant Jimmy Uso.
  • Next week on SmackDown: Big E & Kevin Owens vs Apollo Crews & Commander Azeez in Azeez's debut match.
  • On Ding Dong, Hello featuring Seth Rollins, Cesaro made his return. Cesaro destroyed the set, mostly using Seth's face to do the hard hitting, before Rollins fled the scene. Afterwards, Bayley was laughed at by Bianca Belair--with the Ding Dong, Hello! set in ruins.
  • Rey Mysterio called out Roman Reigns, angry over Reigns' vicious attack on father and son last week that left Dom injured.
  • Otis of the Alpha Academy attacked Angelo Dawkins backstage. Otis doesn't have a beard now. Please don't write and article about that, David.
  • Roman Reigns, accompanied by Jey Uso and Paul Heyman, head to the Uso's locker room to confront a defiant Jimmy. He made a pitch to Jimmy to put the family first and make things right.
  • Talking Smack: Bianca Belair and the Alpha Academy appear this weekend.
  • Our final segment saw Rey Mysterio come out to the ring and call out Universal Champion Roman Reigns, seeking revenge for the brutal beating he and his son Dominik took at the hands of Reigns last week. Reigns came out over the course of several minutes. Once he reached the ring, Rey "acknowledged" Roman for all the wrong reasons. Rey and Dominik both attacked the champ with Kendo sticks but Roman managed to destroy them both. Wicked spot near the end in which Roman used a Powerbomb toss to send Dom flying over the top rope and out of the ring, crashing hard into the ramp. Our show ended with Roman standing over the fallen Mysterios for a second week in a row.
