Friday Night Smackdown – Nov 17th 2023: Results & Review

by Phil Wheat

Welcome to this review of this past Friday’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, right here on Nerdly. Let’s see what went down on this week’s episode!

Match #1: Triple Threat Tag Team Title No. 1 Contender Match – The Street Profits def. The Brawling Brutes and Pretty Deadly

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

In a fast-paced Triple Threat Match, Butch accidently booted his partner Ridge Holland. Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford took full advantage of this mistake by clearing the ring and overcoming Holland with the Revelation. The victory earned The Street Profits an Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship Match next week against Finn Bálor and Damian Priest of The Judgment Day

My Score: 2.5 out of 5

Match #2: Dragon Lee def. NXT’s Axiom

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

In an explosive showdown filled with incredible moments from beginning to end, Dragon Lee continued his winning streak by overcoming Axiom from NXT.

My Score: 3 out of 5

Match #3: Grayson Waller def. Cameron Grimes

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

One week after Grayson Waller and Austin Theory provoked Kevin Owens into earning himself a suspension, “The Dynamite from Down Under” used a distraction involving Austin Theory at ringside to get the three-count on Cameron Grimes.

My Score: 1 out of 5

Match #4: LA Knight def. Jimmy Uso

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

In the first part of his quest to make The Bloodline cease to exist, LA Knight overcame Jimmy Uso with the BFT. Moments after The Megastar defeated his opponent, The American Nightmare charged to the ring to help him overcome a 2-on-1 attack by Uso and Solo Sikoa

My Score: 2.5 out of 5

Final Verdict: 2.5/5

Another poor week for Smackdown, with only 4 matches on the entire show, far too much focus on Survivor Series instead of the weekly action, and the highlight of the show – and best match this week – featured a member of NXT! Some of this stuff has been dragged on far too long as well – like Grayson Waller/Austin Theory, and LA Knight/Jimmy Uso… I’m bored now. especially of the Bloodline stuff which is become more and more stagnant and mundane as the weeks go on.
