WWE Friday Night SmackDown Quick Recap for 6/18/2021

Matches Tonight: Four
  • Tag Team Match: Big E & Kevin Owens lost to Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews & Commander Azeez in the commander's debut match. 8:20-8:32pm
  • Battle for the Crown: King Shinsuke Nakamura defeated the usurper Corbin, thereby being officially crowned the "one true King of the WWE." 8:39-8:51
  • Single's Match: Otis and Chad Gable destroyed Angelo Dawkins before the bell rang. No match. 9:16-9:20pm
  • Hell in a Cell Universal Championship Main Event Match: Universal Champion Roman Reigns successfully defended his title against Rey Mysterio in the Cell, winning by submission with the inverted Guillotine. 9:31- 9:56pm EST. Roman's Entrance Tracker: 9:36-9:40pm EST
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Rey cut a promo to open the show. He didn't want to wait another day to get his hands on Roman, hence the challenge by Rey on Twitter yesterday to move the match to tonight.
  • Kevin Owens demanded a match with Sami Zayn, after Zayn laughed at him for getting throat punched twice by Commander Azeez. Makes sense.
  • The Alpha Academy (Otis & Chad Gable) continued their decimation of the Street Profits.
  • Match Announced: Kevin Owens will face Sami Zayn in a Hell in a Cell match at the ppv, which is new. They run down the rest of this weekend's card (subject to change).

And that wraps it up for the week! Come back and see us Sunday for Hell in a Cell live results with frequent updates. Have a great weekend and try to stay cool out there!
