Smackdown Review 11.27


Smackdown started with Jey Uso congratulating Roman Reigns for his victory over Drew McIntyre at Survivor Series. However, it backfired as Reigns showed no empathy to his cousin. Reigns reminded Uso that he was supposed to leave the arena and did not need any help. Uso, frustrated to be liked upon and struggles for acceptance from his cousin, took his frustration at Otis. The domino effect caused Otis not to have a match with King Corbin.

Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode defeated The Street Profits.

Ziggler and Roode squeaked by with a win. That will now set up a tag team championship match sometime soon. But, is this the ride for Ziggler and Roode to come out and become two-time tag team champions?

The last time Ziggler and Roode won a tag team championship match was against Strowman and Rollins at Clash of Champions 2019. A month later, they would lose the titles to The Viking Raiders. Last October, Ziggler and Roode would lose the Raw Tag Team Championship match to the New Day. Their next opportunity will be for the Smackdown title in which the Street Profits are wanting the smoke.

Sami Zayn defeated Daniel Bryan via count-out

Zayn has a way to surpass his opponents unconventionally. On Smackdown, Zayn ran away from Bryan during the match. Without the referee's knowledge, Jey Uso attacked Bryan backstage. Zayn ran into the ring before the ref called the ten count.

The match between Zayn and Bryan is not over. I believe Bryan will force Zayn's hand to another match. If not, Big E may be the next opponent for the IC title.

On the other hand, the incident with Jey Uso has built up for Kevin Owens. Owens confronted Roman Reigns about Jey Uso and his philosophy about family and who is at the head of the table. It sparked for a main event match.

Bianca Belair defeated Natalya.

It was a decent match but there will be more to this storyline. Bayley got herself involved in which can be assumed that there will be a triple threat match between these superstars.

Murphy defeated King Corbin

Murphy had plenty of help from La Familia Mysterio. Each member interrupted that match that gained momentum for Murphy. Corbin became distracted and lost the match.

For all what Corbin had done in the past, it is haunting him. But, could this be a change of character for King Corbin. Cobrin was cheated in the loss. Although he does have a mouth that does not shut, he is one of the best wrestlers. This could be a big spark for Corbin. Expect to see another match with Murphy, Dominik Mysterio or both.

Kevin Owens defeated Jey Uso by disqualification.

Fast forward to the end, Owens had the last laugh as he crushed Uso with the chair several times. He stared at the camera, knowing that Reigns would watch. Owens stated that he fears no one and will be happy to sit at the head of the table.

Expect Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens for TLC. Also, Daniel Bryan vs. Jey Uso in a stipulation match for TLC.
