WWE Friday Night Supersized SmackDown Quick Recap for October 15, 2021

Matches Tonight: Five
  • King of the Ring Semi-Finals: Sami Zayn vs Finn Bálor. Bálor picked up the win, but Zayn wins by not having to go to a country that would kill him because of his lineage. GREAT match, with both men putting out several big spots. 8:20-8:32pm EST.
  • Big Return Match: Naomi vs WWE Official Sonya Deville & Shayna Baszler. Baszler was added as a special stipulation just prior to the match. This is Deville's first match in over a year, since losing to Mandy Rose at SummerSlam 2020 in a "loser leaves" match. Short squash match that saw Deville add insult to injury by pinning Naomi by standing on her after Baszler put Naomi to sleep with the Kirifuda Clutch. 8:50-8:52pm EST.
  • Queen's Crown Semi-Finals: Carmella vs Zelina Vega. Both women started out with respect and an agreement not to hit each other in the face. That quickly degenerated and Carmella, distracted by Liv Morgan at ringside and possessing Carmella's protective face mask, found herself rolled up by Vega. Vega advances to the finals and will face the winner of DouDrop vs Baszler's match on Raw. 9:14-9:17pm EST.
  • SmackDown Tag Championship Street Fight Match: the Usos vs the Street Profits. The Usos picked up the win in an incredibly great match that you MUST see. The Profits paid homage to the Dudley Boyz in a great spot, and the Usos used the kendo sticks to great effect. 9:36-9:47pm EST.
  • Non-Title Main Event Match: WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch vs Sasha Banks. Excellent match that saw Lynch mostly dominate, but both women put in some great spots. 10:00-10:18pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Edge of Your Seat Excitement: Edge opened our show, recapping his relationship with Rollins, and announcing their official Hell in a Cell match at Thursday's Crown Jewel. 8:01-8:14pm EST.
  • Seth Rollins Rolls On In: Rollins presented his argument for winning in the Hell in a Cell. Time filler--same stuff we've heard for months. His choice in suits garnered him a "Harley Quinn" chant (the DC character). 9:00-9:07pm EST.
  • Happy Talk, featuring Happy Corbin & Madcap Moss: Moss and Corbin made some jokes about Owens, but the show was hijacked by King Nakamura and Boogs--who also played guitar for the Street Profits as they made their way out. 9:24-9:29pm EST.
  • Universal Championship Contract Signing: Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns met in the ring to sign the contract for their match at WWE Crown Jewel on Thursday. Roman signed the contract after having Heyman read it to ensure it was what he wanted. Brock signed it without looking at it, laughing. Roman asked if Brock was a dumbass, as he signed a contract without reading it. Brock responded that he'd already read the contract...this morning with his special advocate Paul Heyman. Brock left, leaving Roman confused as to where Heyman's loyalty lies as our program ended.10:20-10:28pm EST.
  • Other Random, Shorter Promos: Hit Row cut a promo, announcing their move to SmackDown next week; Sasha Banks cut a short one explaining that she came back to right some wrongs.
