by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have the corpse of Vince McMahon to dispense with now that Don West and Mike Tenay have led the charge to destroy the evil. Triple H: You bastards! You killed him! Don West: Actually, Jeff Jarrett killed Vince. Jeff Jarrett: It’s true! It’s damn true! Kurt Angle: Hey! That’s my line! JJ: Where were you? KA: Poundin’ that ass! JJ: Poundin’ my ass like a dime? Mike Graham: Never drew a dime! HHH: You bastards will never make it out of here alive! Mike Tenay: Let’s get the flippity-floppity-floop out of here! Stephanie McMahon: Two men enter…now nobody leaves! Me: SmackDown starts now. GULP!

Match #1: Apollo Crews/Commander Azeez b. Kevin Owens/Big E

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

After blaming his tag team loss to Big E & Kevin Owens on Sami Zayn last week, Apollo Crews enlisted the help of the debuting gargantuan Commander Azeez for a tag team rematch. The Master Strategist joined the SmackDown announce team. Zayn’s disruption paved the way for Azeez to hit KO with the Nigerian Nail and left the conspiracy theorist dancing to the backstage area in celebration.

The Verdict: 4 out of 10 – This was kinda boring. Crews has the muscles. KO has the titties. Big E…has the titties. Azeez has no titties. F—k him! Azeez…light! The wrestling…chicken tenders. I like chicken tenders. I like biting them and swishing them around my mouth like tasty mouth-wash. It’s good! This match was not chicken tenders! I’m pissed! Triple H: You don’t like the match? Then die! DW: They keep saying s—t like that. MT: Ain’t that about a bitch? SM: Take my father’s body to the cell. Me: A sauna?

Match #2: Shinsuke Nakamura b. King Corbin – Battle For The Crown Match

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

After weeks of taunting King Corbin and gallivanting around with the crown, The King of Strong Style went head-to-head against the ruthless monarch for crown and kingdom. With Rick Boogs cheering him on at ringside, Nakamura overcame Corbin with the Kinshasa and was crowned the rightful, regal victor.

The Verdict: 6 out of 10 – Shinsuke has the crown! Shinsuke carried Corbin! Shinsuke rules! Shinsuke Nakamura: I win! Now, you can come with me to dungeon! Me: I’m so pissed you won now.

Match #3: (Main Event) Roman Reigns b. Rey Mysterio – Hell In A Cell Match For The WWE Universal Title

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

In SmackDown’s first-ever Hell in a Cell Match, Rey Mysterio engaged Roman Reigns in an unrelenting battle for the Universal Title after The Head of the Table hurled Dominik over the top rope last week and directly onto the unforgiving ringside floor to take him completely out of action. The Legendary Luchador incorporated everything possible in his quest for payback, including a fire extinguisher, a tool box, and a steel chair. Mysterio even delivered a frog splash off the top rope to drive a steel chair into the titleholder. Reigns fought back like only The Head of the Table could, punishing The Master of the 619 whenever possible. In the final moments, Reigns hurled Mysterio over the top rope, through the air and into the unforgiving steel of the Cell. He then locked in a version of the Guillotine to make his opponent finally tap out. In the aftermath, Jimmy Uso emerged and watched as Reigns lock in the Guillotine yet again on Rey.

The Verdict: 8 out of 10 – You put a Hell In A Cell on free TV. Why? SM: My father always had a contingency plan in the event of his death. Roman will destroy Rey in the cell and his soul will feed the machine. My father will return from the netherworld stronger than ever. Roman! Unleash Hell…In The Cell! Roman Reigns: Yes master. Rey Mysterio: No Roman! No! RR: Your son is a twink. RM: You son of a bitch! Me: No Rey! No! HHH: Review the mayhem! Do so or Don West will die! MT: You leave Don alone! DW: Martin! Don’t listen to these f—ks! Me: It’s Na…you leave Don alone you bastards! HHH: Call it! Me: Roman got pummeled by Rey to starts, but Roman would eventually take over the bout and destroy his challenger. Rey fought valiantly to make the match look competitive, but Roman was given too much in the last stretch of the match. Rey should never be squashed. Roman did look capable here and that’s important. SM: …and yet it’s all about our father! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! Me: Oh God… Necro-Vince: I am Necro-Vince! DW: Chip! Get out of the way! He’ll smash you! Me: It’s Natha… MT: Move bitch! Get out the way bitch! Get out the way bitch! Get out the way! Me: Roman beat Rey in a great spectacle that has not been seen on WWE T.V. in years…and now we’re all doomed.

Final Verdict: 7/10

A one-match show where the one match took-up a whole quarter of the show if not more, means that it is a fairly fun event to watch. Necro-Vince: HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! I live again! Me: Sam Muchnik. Necro-Vince: AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! SM: You killed him! Me: Everyone knows that a reborn man can be defeated by the uttering of their polar opposite. SM: You bastards! Me: Maybe Vince should have learned how to draw money from matches instead of pushing John Cena’s nipples on live T.V.? AJ Styles: Gotcha big-jugs! T&A! T&A! T&A! Me: You got her! Now we can take her father’s body to Mount Fagynah! AJ: Yeah! Wait…what? Wait…yeah! DW: Good goin’ AJ! MT: Good show! AJ: I got the T&A! Me: Okay! Let’s get the body ready for transport. Well, this decent show got good at the end and that’s alright with me. I’ll see you next time.
