WWE Friday Night SmackDown Quick Recap for November 5, 2021

Matches Tonight:
  • Singles Match: Shayna Baszler vs Naomi Part I. Entertaining match that saw Naomi win. Afterwards, WWE Official Deville continued her trolling of Naomi and pointed out that, technically, Naomi won with an illegal pin fall. She deemed the match restarted. 8:23-8:31pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Shayna Baszler vs Naomi Part II. The bell rang, Baszler locked in the Kirifuda Clutch, and moments later Baszler won by submission. 8:31-8:31pm EST.
  • Tag Match: Cesaro & Mansoor vs Los Lotharios (Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo). Los Lotharios picked up the win with their new double-team finisher, "Cerro de la Silla". 8:47-8:52pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Drew McIntyre vs Ricochet. The weekly "SmackDown Warrior Open Challenge" saw Ricochet attempt to insult and win. Great match--watch the final move that won it. Very unique low-angle Claymore used to counter an aerial move. Impressive. Drew won, of course. 9:02-9:06m EST.
  • Tag Match: Madcap Moss w/ Happy Corbin vs the Viking Raiders. An okay match that saw the Raiders win via count-out after Moss & Corbin fled up the ramp. 9:21-9:27pm EST.
  • Bend-the-Knee Main Event Singles Match: King Woods vs "James" Uso. The stipulation: if Woods loses, he acknowledges Roman Reigns; if Woods wins, Uso takes a knee to his true King. Woods won but despite the stipulation, Roman Reigns interfered post-match to prevent any bending of the knee. After the match, Reigns ordered the Usos to take out Kofi's knee. 9:43-9:55pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • The Bloodline Speaks: We opened our show with the Bloodline. Reigns began his entrance at 8:01 and finally reached the ring, ready to speak, by x. During the lengthy walk we were treated to video of the attack on King Xavier and Sir Kofi last week. Roman went on to engage in a brief, yet lengthy, verbal clash with the New Day and a gimmick match was born. 8:01-8:17pm EST.
  • Friends: Mustafa Ali now is attempting to recruit Ricochet. Think back to recent story lines between Ali & Mansoor--it's that, just 2.0.
