WWE SmackDown In About 4 Minutes… (Nov. 15, 2019) NEW WWE Universal Title REVEALED! | WrestleTalk


NXT invades again…and kind of look like
chumps, Daniel Bryan vs The Fiend is made official, and there are 17 million video packages
and recaps in one show! I am Chopper Pete Quinnell, give us a like
and a subscribe, and press the i above my head letting us know what you thought of the
show, where you can choose from Smacknificient, SmackDowner, Smack Bang in the Middle, SmackDowner,
and a Smack in the Face. This is the November 15, 2019 episode of Friday
Night SmackDown, in about 4 minutes. The show opened with the first video recap
of the night, highlighting King Corbin’s godawful promo, and the closing match where
Roode and Ziggler aligned with him. After that, King Corbin made his entrance, which
admittedly, was pretty cool as he had people carry him to the ring on a sedan chair. But
that’s about where the coolness stopped. Roode and Ziggler were already in the ring,
and Corbin cut another lengthy promo, declaring himself team captain for Team SmackDown at
Survivor Series, and Roode and Ziggler piped in to say they should have been on Team SmackDown,
and they’re going to beat Shorty G and Ali to win their spot. King Corbin then calls out Roman Reigns, and
out comes…a dog mascot, complete with a remixed version of his theme song that has
chihuahua barks in it. The mascot does the ooh-ahh and then Corbin makes it do some tricks
in the ring. It’s such good shit. This led into the tag match between Roode
and Ziggler and Shorty G and Mustafa Ali, who’s got his first name back. This was
a fun in-ring match, with lots of close calls on both sides. Roman came out midway through
the match right before an ad break, but didn’t get involved until the finish, allowing Ali
to pick up the victory with a 450. Next we got a video recap of The Fiend attacking
Daniel Bryan last week, before a very brief Firefly Funhouse where Bray changes The Universal
Championship to blue. *shrug* We then get a video recap of the tag match
that just happened that opened the show…okay fine, which led into a backstage segment with
Corbin and his lackeys, with them saying they should be on Team SmackDown, and Corbin saying
he’s going to fix it. We get YET ANOTHER VIDEO RECAP of Tyson Fury
and Braun Strowman suddenly becoming best friends from last week, before Braun comes
out and annihilates Drew Gulak and The B-Team. The New Day cut a promo from gorilla position
next, saying they’re going to retain their titles against The Revival, so much for no
automatic rematches. Daniel Bryan is backstage next, and he’s
intercepted by Sami Zayn, who asks once and for all, will you join us Daniel? Daniel says
no, and says Braun Strowman would be better for them, and walks off. Suddenly Braun is
there and Sami walks away. That was the payoff to this really good storyline you’ve been
telling for weeks? Come on guys. The Revival vs New Day was a really great
in-ring match, with both teams looking like they could win on several occasions. Big E
was hit with a Shatter Machine, with Kofi saving the match with a dive, but just as
the match was reaching its high point, the Undisputed Era came out and beat down both
teams, standing tall in the ring. This brought out other assorted members of the SmackDown
roster to chase them off. After an ad break, we get a video recap OF
THE UNDISPUTED ERA INTERFERENCE THAT JUST HAPPENED. WHY. Heavy Machinery are still in the ring, and
they squash some local talent. Cool. Then we get MORE VIDEO RECAPS, covering Shayna
Baszler and Bayley’s run-ins on their various shows, before a backstage promo with Bayley
and Sasha Banks. Nikki then makes her entrance for her match, before we get a video package
about the WrestleMania 36 on-sale ticket party, and then we get ANOTHER VIDEO RECAP OF THE
OPENING TAG MATCH. Bayley vs Nikki Cross barely gets underway
when Shayna Baszler comes out and gets into the ring. Bayley then runs away into the crowd,
before a bunch of other NXT stars appear behind her, including Rhea Ripley, who’s had beef
with Baszler, Tegan Nox, who’s had beef with Baszler, Mia Yim, who’s had beef with
Baszler, and Dakota Kai, who’s had beef with Baszler. Basically, they all hate Baszler,
and they’re here backing her up on SmackDown. I hate that “brand supremacy” comes before
emotional storylines. This leads to a big brawl, and a 4-on-4 match
is made between the NXT lasses and Sasha Banks, Nikki Cross, Dana Brooke and Carmella. Remember
when Sasha Banks and Nikki Cross were feuding? Back from an ad break, everyone hits their
big moves, which eventually leads to Nikki Cross hitting her neckbreaker from out of
nowhere to Dakota Kai for the win. NXT then tries to beat down people after the bell,
but SmackDown sends them packing. NXT lost and then ran away. NXT is the cool brand guys,
promise. Finally we get MizTV with Daniel Bryan as
the special guest. BUT FIRST IT’S TIME FOR ANOTHER VIDEO RECAP OF THE FIEND’S ATTACK
LAST WEEK. WE ALREADY SAW THIS EARLIER. Miz asks Bryan why he thinks The Fiend attacked
him, before giving his own answer, saying he can tell that Bryan is mentally unstable,
and he doesn’t know who he is, but more than that, he’s washed up. Bryan responds
by saying yeah, he’s mentally unstable, but he has passion. The passion that led him
to all the great things he’s done in his career, including kicking someone in the balls
to win the WWE Championship. No-one understands his mental instability.
But Bray does. This summons Bray who appears on the Titantron, and cuts a really nice promo,
taunting Bryan with The Universal Championship in order to have a match with him, bringing
the championship out from a toy box. Bryan says no to a fight, and then says they
should fight at Survivor Series for the Universal Championship, which I thought is what Bray
was asking for anyway, but ok. Bray then really creepily says yes about 17,000 times. It cuts
back to the ring and Bryan says off mic “are we done” and Miz akwardly says “there
you have it, it’s Daniel Bryan vs Bray Wyatt at Survivor Series for the Universal Championship”.
I think someone might have missed their cue. Bryan walks away, and that’s how the show
ends. This was a pretty mediocre episode of SmackDown.
The in-ring action, as always, is really good, but it’s so hard to get emotionally invested
in anything when you have ridiculous characters like Corbin and his mascot dog, cutting terrible
promos. The payoff to the Sami/Bryan feud was incredibly underwhelming, NXT looked like
chumps once again, but the Bryan/Bray stuff was pretty good, which just about bumps this
episode up to a low Smack Bang In The Middle. As a quick note, if you want to see myself
and my lady partner play Pokemon Sword and Shield, we’re streaming today, tomorrow,
and Monday on twitch.tv/screenstalker, and the first highlight video from our streams
yesterday will be going up on ScreenStalker’s YouTube channel today. Drop us a follow and
