by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have a problem. I gots the chafes! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! I gots the chafes! There’s only one way to stop this. Orgy! Gannnnnnnngbaaaaaaaannnnnnngggg!!!!!!!!! Several hours later… Me: Ewwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!! All these naked people are f–king each other! Ewwwwwwwwww!!!!! Luaralla: Naythun! Come connect with another man’s soul. Me: First off, that’s not how you pronounce my name. Kannaff: Neythoone. Come bond with the inner intimacy of a man’s rectum as women squeeze your balls with another man’s split ass. Me: Jesus! No f–king way! Peetah: You must give in to the pleasure. That Puppet From Soap: Hiya assholes! You see that Matt Damon over there? Kicked his ass! Matt Damon: Matt Damon! Billy Crystal: Okay okay! You helped. Puppet: Helped?! Helped?! I’ll help you to kiss my water-sealed ass you pint-sized midget f–k! Me: Well! I’m ready for wrestling. Let’s go! Puppet: You think Jeff Dunham could do this?! He’s too busy shoving his hand up his own ass to know how to kick ass!

Match #1: Dominik Mysterio/Rey Mysterio def. Usos – SmackDown Tag Team Titles Match

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

In the height of an extremely hard-fought SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match, the reunited Usos failed to overcome The Mysterios when the referee was out of position during a Dominik pin attempt and did not see Jimmy Usos’ shoulder lift off the mat.

The Verdict: 7 out of 10 – This was really good. Fast and Furious, which is in theaters soon (promotional tie-in we get nothing for because I pissed off the Peacock), is also how I describe this match. So promotional tie-in is this match that you’ll be wondering how you ever lived your life without this! You fool! Gilbert Gottfried: You fool! Me: I was astounded at how smooth the transition from move to move was. GG: I wish my wife would say the same f–kin’ thing! Me: For a card opening prize fight, this was excellent.

Match #2: Carmella def. Liv Morgan

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Incensed by Carmella’s attitude about her perceived beauty, Liv Morgan’s attempted to show her opponent that beauty is pain. However, she came up short when The Untouchable One make her tap out to The Code of Silence.

The Verdict: 3 out of 10 – This came and went without incident. It was short and didn’t have much to it. This wasn’t much of a match.

Match #3: King Corbin def. Shinsuke Nakamura

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Although King Corbin picked up a quick victory over Shinsuke Nakamura and reclaimed his crown from ringside, Rick Boogs grabbed his legs as he was taking his leave and paved the way for the The Artist to hit him with the big boot and walk away with the crown once again.

The Verdict: 3 out of 10 – Take the entire verdict for the last match and put it here.

Match #4: Apollo Crews def. Kevin Owens – Intercontinental Title Match

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Although Commander Azeez is banned from ringside for the Intercontinental Title Match, The Pride of Nigeria’s elite guardsman managed to launch an backstage attack on Kevin Owens prior to the action. As a result, KO’s hard-fought effort during the matchup was not enough to overcame Crews who drove his war torn challenger off of the top turnbuckle and down onto the unforgiving ring apron for the victory.

The Verdict: 5 out of 10 – This was mostly just KO selling for Crews, but the selling was good. KO was selling an injury angle with Commander Azeez. Azeez? Achoo! Bless you! If you like selling, then watch this match. If you like wrestling, then this will likely disappoint you.

Match #5: Dominik Mysterio/Rey Mysterio def. Usos – SmackDown Tag Team Titles Match (DQ)

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Following a controversial ending to the SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match earlier in the night, the Mysterios looked as if they may emerge victorious in the height of the rematch against The Usos. That was until Universal Champion Roman Reigns emerged out of nowhere to bring an end to the match and unleash an absolutely brutal attack on Rey and Dominik. After locking Dominik in the Guillotine, however, Jimmy Uso took issue and informed The Head of the Table that it was enough before storming out of the ring.

The Verdict: 5 out of 10 – This was much less than it was as an opener, but still good fun while it lasted. A short match with a lame interference finish, this was nothing spectacular, but it was exciting. I’d say that with the opener in play on this show, this match had a lot working for and against it. Not bad.

Final Verdict: 5/10

The opener was great, but it never got better than that. When the show show peaks just as it gets started, that’s not a good sign. Roman attacking Rey Mysterio and Dominik may have just set-up the Hell In A Cell Universal Title Match. Well, since nit much happened on this show, that ends the review. I’ll see you next week.
