WWE SmackDown In About 4 Minutes… (Nov. 8, 2019) NXT UK INVADES! | WrestleTalk

November 11, 2019

Thank you for being an awesome Pledgehammer
on Patreon, WrestleTalk’s Personal Ring Announcer, Rodrigo Benitez! King Corbin calls out Roman Reigns’ lack
of desire! Tyson Fury and Braun Strowman just became best friends?! And Sasha Banks returns
to in-ring action! I’m Dave – Just Dave – and I’m subbing
in for Pete today! But fear not, I’ll be getting the hot tag to him next week – In
the meantime, I’m wearing a beanie, to ease you in better. Sorry about the lack of beard.
One step at a time. Do drop a like and a subscribe, and click
the “I” above my head to let us know what you thought of Smackdown! You can choose from
“Smacknificent”, “Smacktastic”, “Smack Bang In The Middle”, “SmackDowner” and
“A Smack In The Face”. This is the November 8th 2019 episode of Friday
Night Smackdown in about 4 minutes. With Michael Cole and Corey Graves back behind
the desk, King Corbin is first out, and his midcard vortex continues to grow in strength.
It’s sucked in Roman Reigns, who is apparently too busy doing charitable work these days.
How dare he. Through miscellaneous technical wizardry,
Corbin made Reign’s TitanTron bark like a chihuahua – gotta make his opponent feel
smaller than him somehow – and told the crowd they’d be able to take home Reigns’
excrement in a doggy bag. Keeping it regal, Corbin. Next up is The New Day fighting for the Smackdown
Tag Team Championships against The Revival. Some classic Revival skulduggery was all for
nought as Kofi landed an assisted Trouble In Paradise on Wilder to crown The New Day
as YOUR SEVEN TIME, W, W, E, SMA- you know what, I can’t. I can’t do it. Nobody wants
to see that. Yes, The New Day are 7-time Smackdown Tag
Team Champions, and will go on to face The Viking Raiders and Undisputed Era at Survivor
Series! Backstage, Daniel Bryan is approached by Sami
Zayn to tell him that he can elevate his career just like he’s done for Shinsuke Nakamura.
Cue Daniel Bryan thinking. You’re gonna see a lot of that this week. Heavy Machinery hit the ring and OH MY GOD
IT’S IMPERIUM! THE EUROPEANS ARE COMING! NXT UK are joining in the invasion!
Yes, the gang’s all here and Imperium takes it to Heavy Machinery. The New Day are there
to make the save alongside Shorty G, Ali and … Apollo Crews. Not sure what horse he has
in this race but hey, nice to see you Apollo. In a brief interview, Bayley dismisses Shayna
Baszler’s attack last week as her trying to be relevant – which is… bold. With
Banks in action later, it’s time for Nakamura and Cesaro to take on Ali and Shorty G – and
thoughtful Daniel Bryan comes to check out the match!
After some nice spots from everyone involved, about three different distractions happen
at once to allow Nakamura to nail Ali with the Kinshasa and pick up the win. Daniel Bryan
has another little think before walking back up the ramp, leaving Zayn looking like a spoilt
7-year-old who got the wrong toy for Christmas. Nikki Cross vs Sasha Banks is up next, and
hello new Sasha music! Bayley is on commentary, but that doesn’t stop Nikki Cross from beating
the spit out of her and taking her mic to yell something entirely unintelligible – but
hey, Manchester seemed to like it. In the end, Sasha managed to tap out Nikki
to the Bank Statement in her first match back. Bayley was all up for round two with Nikki
but HERE COMES SHAYNA AGAIN! Yes, the NXT Women’s champion is back to ruin Bayley’s
life, which she proceeded to do with vicious enthusiasm. Backstage, Sami wants an answer from thoughtful
Daniel Bryan about joining his boy band – but suddenly the lights cut, and THE FIEND IS
HERE! Don’t worry – not me. Still the Friend.
Yes, Bray Wyatt’s Fiend appeared, Sami dipped faster than a chicken nugget into ketchup,
and Daniel Bryan became the latest victim of the Mandible Claw. Tyson Fury is out next in front of his home
crowd and calls out Braun Strowman. For a match? Oh no. He wants to form a tag team.
And Braun is entirely up for the idea! What is happening?! Either way, The B-Team were
the hilariously sacrificial lambs, and Braun and Fury promptly murdered them. Dana Brooke and Carmella finally get their
shot at Fire and Desire – and a Survivor Series place – after Bianca Belair decided
to brutalise them last week because she could. And the long-term team of Sonya Deville and
Mandy Rose, who have been teaming since the end of 2017… lost.
Huh. Yes, Dana Brooke picked up the pinfall after
a senton from the top rope onto Sonya. So, for anyone who was excited to see Fire & Desire
get that push they looked like getting… might want to take a raincheck. Main event time, and it’s King Corbin against
Roman Reigns. Roman’s on top, but in come Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode! For… reasons!
Cue much distracting and sneaky hits on Reigns before he finally takes down The Glorious
Showoffs – and gets pulled straight into an End Of Days from Corbin for the win! The show was always going to have a hard time
following last week’s NXT fan service bonanza, but overall, it was a pretty good showing.
The matches were solid as a whole, albeit sometimes feeling like not much was actually
at stake, and in many cases featuring lacklustre endings. However, they did manage to build
on the wave of NXT excitement without overdoing it, which was great. At the same time, they
pushed some of the focus back onto the top stars who were absent last week very nicely.
Overall, this episode gets a “Smack Bang In The Middle” – but a high one. Like,
the high end of being in the middle. The best of the middle. Look, it was really close this
week! If you want to hear about the scrapping of
plans on RAW, click the video to the right, and to find out more about a potential major
WWE heel turn, then hit the video below that one! And a special thank you to our Pledgehammers
on Patreon, who you’ll be able to see scrolling below me right about now. I’ve been Dave – Just Dave – and that
was wrestling.

    Poor Dave, he is just getting started and I know he’s a bit sore on the throat, but remember the days when Luke was the “negative” one and Laurie was an annoying Erik Rowan, and Pete was a short Luke, the starts are tough but in the end we will all like Dave, just give him some feedback rather than hateful comments.

  • Reply aTwistedSky November 9, 2019 at 8:16 pm

    Following on from the amazing Smackdown last week it seems that management decided to do a paint by numbers show this week instead. Most of the night was lacklustre, with only Shayna and Imperium giving me positive feelings. I get that they wanted some normality on the show but gods damn they essentially took the wind out of the sails of the hype built in the last week.

    Last week we got a main event of Adam Cole vs Daniel Bryan in a great contest and the crowd LOVED it. This week we got Roman Reigns vs King Corbin…. a match we have not only seen before but have ZERO interest in. Corbin is great as a midcard heel used in short spells, but him being featured every week in unfunny segments and thrown in to main event segments just feels utterly contrived.
    Nobody came out of that main event looking good.

    Even the Fiend attacking Daniel Bryan felt a bit like they half assed it because it was done backstage for no real reason except that they could. When Bryan was watching on the ramp after the Nakamura win was the PERFECT opportunity to have it done and would have gotten a stronger reaction from the crowd.

    Last week was going to be hard to follow so WWE didn't even try to follow it really, and the sad part is that they have a REALLY talented roster being misused for the most part.

    As personal and Friend-ly advice, Dave, I would suggest you to not force yourself in the catchphrase used by others. Yeah I know it's always nice to use them, but everyone has its personal way to be entertaining. I just think that yours doesn't necessarly fits in the way your collegues make review. You looks a bit embarassed or forced. There's nothing to be ashamed of.
    For this reason I think that maybe finding your dimension and your way to make a nice review would be great, instead than trying making it Luke Owen-ish
    Said that don't worry. We all had to get used to the "new ones" every single time. Pete was probably being completely accpeted since just 2 months when you arrived xD
    Keep going. Internet is constantly updating but is crowded by people that want everything to never change.
    You're the change. You're the updating. Don't let yourself discouraged by any negative comment. <3

    Secondly these writers really are full of shit for making Sami actually say his act with Nakamura has elevated him when that's far from the truth. If they actually bothered with continuity, Nakamura was winning fucking CLEAN for about a month before they put him with Sami. Even won the IC title clean now he's just another powdered cookie cutter pussy heel like EVERYONE else. Cheating to win and running like a little bitch. I get he no speaky engrish but c'mon he didn't need a weasle type of manager to cheat and win and shit when he was already doing it alone and again CLEAN ! So sick of WWE making their heels be total pussies. I get they cheat but damn dude not every heel, especially the ones that actually look like they can kick ass need to be total vaginas 😑😑😑😑

    Wait until you see how bad Raw is. The whole arena boo’d thru the Lana-Rusev-Lashley segment. Chants of boring.
    I fell asleep during one of the mid cards (I’d been up early to go to work that day, so sitting in a dark room watching something that wasn’t very entertaining was only ending in one thing) The invasion angle is the only thing working at the moment.

    Vince needs to retire. His ideas suck.
    Shorty G … come on. It’s such a 70 year old mans idea “stick a basketball jersey on him, damn it, it’s such good sh!t”
    Rowan walked out to the ring with a bag. Placed it at commentary. Defeated a local talent in a squash match, grabbed the bag and left…. what was in the bag..??? All I hear in my head is Vince’s voice “GET HIM A BAG DAMN IT…. ITS SUCH GOOD SH!T”
    Rollins was boo’d out the arena. Chants of ‘stay off Twitter’ rang out.

    OC vs A trio of Orton, Ricochet and Humberto was a good match. I didn’t like OC as heals as they are over at the minute after invading NXT.

    DARK MATCH of bray Wyatt vs OC saved the show.
