you ain't still going come up yesterday and from your leftover. Yeah.
Awesome Smackdown! Yes, the smack down.
After surviving Syria's survivor, Syria's felt like that happened, like, three weeks ago.
But we're gonna get up into because I'm Ray Williams.
You're you and we're broke in.
Don't mind, Jamal.
Oh, before we continue, please don't forget to follow your boy if you don't already.
Right here on SportsCastr, Try toe do shows every Monday and Friday after all and Smackdown respectively.
Please, you get notifications when I start streams live when I scheduled them in advance And also when I have replays available.
So please don't forget to follow your boy.
Also, if you want to contribute and be a part of the discussion, go ahead right down here at your thoughts and opinions right in the chat box.
I'll be sure to check those at the end of my recap of the show.
So and before we get into the show proper, just wantedto going out some news again, courtesy of post rustling The leading source in w w w e pro wrestling news in general.
And also news and mixed martial arts.
Oh, excuse me it.
So No, we have, ah, a lot of people going through some, uh, health stuff during right now unrelated to that stuff, that stuff that's been sweeping the nation this year.
Von Dudley announced on his podcast that he was going through some health issues.
And I believe they said Gilbert's suffered a heart attack and also the M L W national champion Hammer Stone, his significant other his partner is going through some stuff.
So please, if you're into prayer into put it up positive thoughts, I'm more into prayer.
But please send those out to those people's way.
These and I believe Hammer Stone also has a go fund me Go fund me for, uh, supporting his partners, medical bills and medical treat.
If you have anything, please go ahead and support on his Twitter page so that, um, I believe the lawyer of China or former lawyer of China, aka Joni Lower, revealed that Vice wants to do a dark side of the ring episode on her.
But they don't have the rights thio any of the footage or any of the materials directly from her, so we'll see how that goes.
I would be crazy because she's she's got some stories or she she's had some stories, you know, just whole thing with her coming up into wrestling and then relationship the rise and fall of her relationship with Triple H in the just her entire WWD career and then the aftermath following her career in W W.
Let's put it that way.
Uh, yes, it's crazy stuff, so we'll see if that gets done, man.
We'll see if that gets done. That will be interesting.
And now that I have advice on my cable package, I'll be able to tune into some of that stuff for dark side of her rings.
Siri's critically acclaimed Siri's.
So yeah, we'll see what happens with that, Um, and that is all I have right now in terms of news.
Uh, if you're in MM main fan.
And if you were looking forward to the main event for tomorrow night's UFC fight night with Curtis Blades versus Derek Lewis, well, afraid I got some bad.
I'm afraid I've got some bad news.
Well, Curtis Blades test positive for that stuff, and it was weird because I was kind of acknowledging when I was watching the I was watching the interviews.
Like the media interviews yesterday.
It seemed like everybody that was a part of the card came into that little media room to do the interviews over video conferencing, except for one person con****uously absent and in his own area.
And that was Curtis Blades.
So I think they probably did the whole no, the whole, um, thing.
What's your boy's name? Oh, well, uh, goodness honest the alligator.
Well, the guy who tested positive, like on their first show, who came up and testify, Uh, this is gonna eat me alive, but yeah, I guess they did the whole well, they probably already.
He was probably already complaining of Cem symptoms before, maybe, or Jack Array.
That's what I'm thinking of.
So when Jack Array was scheduled to fight your I A hall, I believe in Florida earlier this year, they already he already had an idea.
That may be he was positive because almost all of his corner hman were tested positive and his family members tested positive back home.
So, uh, yeah, Jack array.
So and then like when they did the face off, they were They kept that 6 ft distance like it wasn't like the other fighters were.
Even with the Mass, the guys were all up in to each other's faces, like they still did the way in.
But like they kept the distance and they were saying how they were keeping Jack array away from everybody and until they got, like, final confirmation that he was positive.
So maybe that was what was going on with Curtis Place, where they already had an idea that he'll probably come up positive.
And so they were trying to keep on quarantined.
And he could still, like, do the media obligations because they still wanted to get final closure to see from, like, other tests.
Let's see if he was going to test positive, consistent.
So, yeah, that fight is off.
But we did get word that, uh, courtesy of Ariel.
How Wani via Twitter believe that Josina Rosen struck.
He has thrown in his hat, so apparently he's not going to be a part of this this fight night.
But next week's fight night.
I believe he's on his way.
I believe they're saying, because he trains that, uh, American top team.
So they're saying he's on his way from Florida now so that he'll be able to face Derrick Lewis next week.
We'll see what happens.
Man, just, uh uh hm.
That's how That's the year 2020 man.
The year of our Lord 2020.
It's just been one crazy thing happening after another.
So I just which Curtis Blades all the best again.
If you submit to giving out prayers, please send a prayer.
A positive prayer, please.
No, no demon worship in a voodoo stuff was in the positive prayer out the Curtis Ladies man, it's gonna be interesting fight.
And it's like a complete switch of styles for Derrick Lewis and what he has to prepare for.
And I love Derrick Lewis during the media call.
He's like, of course, you know Derek Lewis, his his sense of humor and you know he doesn't take that much this seriously.
When he's on there, he's just playing around.
But sometimes he does answer straight from the heart.
Um, but yeah, it will be interesting to see.
He was kind of saying how, uh, he was kind of saying how he's going to be the one to initiate the wrestling on how he wants to make it a wrestling match.
Of course, that's not true, because when is that ever true with Derek Lewis? Um, but and we know that Curtis Blaze, that's his main tool, is the wrestling.
And then he will use the wrestling that kind of get you distracted.
And then that's when he'll try to attack with their hands and with its stand up.
So now you have Rosen struck was almost completely a striker who focuses more on the kickboxing side.
And so now is Derek Lewis now gonna be like Okay, well, I was joking before, but now I really do want to take this guy down.
I don't wanna stay up on defeat with him because again, I have the power from Derek Lewis.
I do have the power to knock him out, but I'm also expending a lot more energy trying to look for that that fatal blow.
Meanwhile, he's conservatives energy, and he could be picking me apart from the outside and then the later rounds get, then I'm like gas and out.
It was announced that it's going to be a three round main event rather than a five round main event.
So that's a good thing for the cardio.
For Derek Lewis and for URLs that struck.
Derek Lewis is probably already was training for five round fight.
So maybe he just has to change his mind set and what he has to do.
It's, um, or accommodate a three round fight.
But Rosen struck is just like, Hey, I'll go ahead and pick that up if you guys need me.
So it will be very interesting this.
See that fight again? I believe that is next weekend, not this weekend.
So this weekend, I believe we're going to have, I think, the co main.
Well, something I wasn't expecting.
I believe it was another fight during the Komei.
Well, I was like, Oh, this guy's fighting.
Let me make sure, all right? So, yeah, so was been bumped up to the main event is now Anthony Smith versus Devin Clark.
So Anthony Smith getting right back in there, even though I believe he suffered, I want to say 33 losses in a row, I believe so.
He's tryingto get back on the winning side against Devin Clark.
So initially that was the co main event.
Now that's going to be pushed up to the man, right? So that's it for me.
And it looks like that's 15.
So 17 is two weeks from now.
So Rosen struck is on his way just to get acclimated everything.
And they're going to be fighting in about two weeks.
Okay, so with that being said, let's get right into raw or I'm sorry Smackdown! I'm all over the place, All right, so let's go ahead and pull up our steps for the evening again, courtesy of our good folks at post risk.
All right, so W W E Smackdown notes.
Jusoh attacks rude and Ziegler beat street profits.
Alright, Roman Reigns was not pleased with Jay.
So which led to so going on a rampage, Rude and Ziegler pinned Attack team champions and more.
Okay, so 11 27 episode of Friday Night Smackdown on Fox was the blue brand survivor.
Siri's fallout show kicked off with the Universal champion Roman reigns, expressing his disappointment in jail.
So for not leading team Smackdown to victory at survivors Siri's and interfering in Raines's match against W W E champion Drew McIntyre.
This led to jail so attacking Otis prior to his match with King Corbyn and ambushing Daniel Bryan during his singles match against Sami Zynga.
So they packed a lot into that.
But let me just started with the beginning of the show, which I thought was great.
So it's starting off the show trying to introduce Roman and then, like, mid introduction, Roman just comes out anyway.
And so you're thinking James.
So just got this cheese eating grin on his face like, Oh, help my cousin help my cousin.
He's gonna be so happy he's gonna be so proud of me.
He was mad and he just to you just chew j so out.
I'm really loving this dynamic, because is not pushing J.
Russo all the way to the dark side is like he's still.
He's still earnest in his intentions in trying to please his cousin and trying to help out his cousin while doing some das****ly things.
But he's not flipping completely like he's not having that attitude against everybody, just like screw everybody, Okay, but he he's kind of like he's not showing remorse, but he's also not outwardly being antagonistic other than attacking people from like he's not calling people out.
He's not demeaning people in his pro most.
He's just saying, I gotta do this.
I gotta do this for my family.
I gotta do this for my cousin.
I gotta do this for the bloodline. Something.
It'll be interesting to see where that goes.
And then we also interesting to see I love that phrase.
What happens to Jimmy when he gets back? I want to see Tamina in the bloodline.
I know somebody mentioned, uh, Naomi believe Naomi's on role now, but still kind of make.
And that's how they're not using Naomi.
Like I don't even know which shows she's on.
I believe she is on wrong and you couldn't tell by her not being featured at all since the draft.
So Well, yeah, I think you have to meet on Smackdown.
When Jimmy comes back, you can have him.
You can have all of them a part of the bloodline.
Um, I would love to see if they get anybody else.
I keep saying here, I will keep putting it out there.
Jacob Fattouh from M l. W.
If he's not doing anything, that would be a good heater.
That dude is a beast.
Get that guy, Get that guy! He's kind of like in the mold of a no Marga nab he can move to.
So I think you get that man as like your muscle.
You get your Russo's in there as your tag team backup crew and you get to meet her there and you all just known as the bloodline and get him in there.
Come on, now that's five persons stable.
Right there is nice.
Not too many, like the inner circle is like, and I think it is working towards a storyline with adding M, J, F and Wardlow.
But it's like seven people come on like dark order.
You don't know how many people they got.
They got, like, 85 even though some people are named 99 100 like e don't know, they're really 100 people in your stable.
I know it's a bunch of people, but yeah, a nice five.
That's a good mixed survivor.
Siri's team like so? Yeah, he just chewed him out.
Who told you I need you? Did not tell you Believe who told you I need a job? Help, just man.
It's just and I was thinking earlier was like, Man, I wish we saw room.
And Russell Moore is like, Well, no, he's he's building.
He's sowing the seeds.
You know what I'm saying? It's someone no seeds and is like with him now coming out with this personality and coming out with this character.
He doesn't need to wrestle every every week.
He, especially with his matches on paper view, is like, save those matches for something special, like you had the one with the season premiere, and you have broad challenging.
But we all knew what was gonna happen with that one.
Just save his matches for a special time and then Sprinkle Sprinkle singles matches just like you guys were doing with Brock.
And even though they're in two different contracts situations, you're still making Roman to be the special attraction that you gotta pay the seat and he'll give you a little a little trailer, a little preview every now and then, maybe once a month on Smackdown Hill, Russell.
But you gotta pay for a man you gotta pay to play.
So, yeah, think what they're doing with them and then s o as he was walking out.
Oh, this was coming down for his match is scheduled match against King Corbyn and jail.
So just went ahead and attacked him.
It was like Like Roman said, If you want them, if you want them to respect you, you gotta make them theory.
So just went attacking everybody like like the notes say, Hey, attacked Otis.
But it's still share.
He attacked Daniel Bryan, and that was an interesting match between Daniel Bryan and Sammy Zane.
So they were competing in the Sami Zine ran to the back, and then you Brian tried to run after him to bring him back before the count out.
But only one man came back to the ring, and that was Sammy Zane, and he made it by the count of 10.
And so then we cut to the back and Daniel Bryan is just getting pummeled by jail.
So Ko Kevin Owens comes to defend who so or not so but comes to defend.
Brian, pulls them all from home and then always pretty much confronts both who so and rains at Roman reigns is in front of Roman reigns his own personal locker room.
And he's just living and This is what I like to see.
A more serious side of Kevin Owens kind of kind of put the joking joking.
It's aside, and I want to see a more serious side Kevin owns.
And by the way, that reminds me.
Speaking of people who have been missing since the draft, Alistair Black and I know there's some things going on.
There's been, you know, at one big thing with his wife, but man they haven't seen.
They haven't been helping him at all.
I think he's only been on the show maybe once or twice since the draft.
So it's like all these great talent you have at your fingertips and you're just having them sit at home.
I don't understand.
But, hey, I'm not Vince.
So yeah, Kevin Owens.
I like seeing a more serious side to Kevin Owens.
I think maybe get him a couple more wins under his belt before he faces Roman.
I think that would be a good thing.
They're probably just going to Russia and put it at TLC because they need something for TLC.
No making a chairs match, probably.
Yeah, with J introducing the chairs from making a chairs match between Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens.
So we'll see how that happens with that.
Okay, Fast forward skipped out.
In the main event, J.
Who so faced Kevin Owens.
And as the show went off the air, Owens sat at the edge of the commentary desk and called out Roman reigns.
So again they just skipped.
So during that main event match towards the end of it, J.
Who So when I got a chair and struck, owns on the back and got disqualified.
So he was trying again, trying toe send a message trying to make people fear and respect him.
And it kind of backfired on him because Kevin Owens was able to turn it around, hit a stunner on him, hit him with the chair.
You so with the church several times, Um, and then he all the while you just talking smack The Roman reigns directly through the camera, and you see Roman reigns in backstage, just just getting mawr and more irritated.
And it ended with Kevin ons hitting another stunner and again as the notes state, just like you're not the head of the table.
I'm at the head of the table and I'm waiting for you and he just sits at the edge of the commentary table.
This is good stuff, man.
You know, Kevin Ons can deliver very passionate and believable pro Mose.
So I like to see what they're doing right now.
And just this it this stuff between Roman reigns and his family and whoever he's competing against, it's so compelling.
It's such great storytelling.
Unlike anything from the red brand.
You won't hear that from me.
Um, all right, let's continue on with the notes.
So Robert Rudin Dolph Ziggler took on Smackdown tag team champions the street profits on the show Rude rolled forward up to score the wind for he and Ziegler.
So yeah, some funny business going on.
They were working in the midsection off Ford.
Ford early tried to go for the, uh from the heavens but landed squarely on the mat as those Zigler rolled out of the way.
And that began the attack on the midsection off Monty's forward.
And they were working him over.
And then he was able to get Thio your boy, Dunkin's Angelo Dawkins for the hot tag, and he was just running amok.
Hey, hits the anointment on Rude I believe it's anointment on rude tags in 44 hits The From the heavens 12 Broken up by Dolph Ziggler So that's how you need double Ziegler and rude We're going to win.
Um and then I believe, Yeah, I think for was distracted.
He was reaching out for, uh, rude, I believe, or pushing route out of the ring.
And then he got a rolled up Bye by delve Ziegler as if there's there's no other way to get a contender.
You know, you're not going to have you're not gonna have anybody is like you're not gonna have anybody.
Uh, like no other tag team can fight Robert Room and all Zigler for, like, a number one container ships.
Here you are nothing like it always has to be the champion, losing first.
And then when they get into a championship match and then they win e, I was like, Well, what was that for? E mean, the challenger couldn't win When the accountant.
But you want that surprised? I don't like what the smart fans like to call it.
The 50 50 booking.
I don't like it.
You're going back and forth.
Um, and maybe you can give the excuse or the reasoning behind it, to Monty's forward being like, Well, I just came off one of the roughest matches of my life where I was getting battered and bruise and brutalized.
Of course, he was able to stack me up, and I just didn't have the energy because of my mixed section being compromised.
But just like, hey, that that's the only way that W.
Feels that they can build worthy contender is by having them beat the champ like they don't do that with the W W E Championship.
You notice that they don't do that.
I think they do that with they do that with the W.
I should take that back.
They didn't do that with Roman rings like they didn't have.
They didn't have run.
Stroman beat Roman reigns in a non title match in orderto earn a championship opportunity.
And that's kind of how they were alluding to with, uh, Sammy Zane vs Daniel Bryan.
Like if Daniel Bryan wins, then he could put himself right in the custom of championship contender.
Ship was like, Why are we doing this like you guys can't find any different ways.
Thio create contenders, I don't know.
But before I get to before I get too far off and read the rest of this, um, the rest of the notes I did want to mention something.
So something that happened right after the Intercontinental ardent after the Intercontinental champion wrestled e shouldn't say after the injured Continental Championship match.
But after the Intercontinental Champion wrestled, uh, we go to the back.
Kayla is waiting in their makeshift backstage ring for Sammy Zane to do an interview with Sami Zine.
And right in front of that ring we see Biggie and Apollo crews playing makeshift basketball with a trash can and like a ping pong ball, he's like, OK, now, Brother Malik, stay over there.
We understand there, Stay right there. It's all good.
I got this from him.
So you got two black men playing basketball.
You don't have him beating each other up, but you do have him playing basketball with one another.
They couldn't do nothing.
Nothing else they couldn't play.
They couldn't have been playing rock paper scissors or they couldn't have been tryingto play like baseball, football or something.
They had there been playing basketball, Okay.
Oh, Lord, like the unintentional things that I see from is just crazy.
But anyway, I digress.
They're playing basketball, and then Sami Zane is like, Excuse me, I'm trying to get to my area.
And so than big ears like, Oh, it seems like you are taking shortcuts and you're not willing wind straight up or something like that.
And then Sammy's a mentions.
It's something about Apollo.
Um, Apollo gets angry.
Biggie escorts him off to cool down, and they just kind of have an interaction of back and forth with each other.
That is something I would really like to see.
Biggie versus Biggie versus Sammi.
I think with them we'll get the match that we were supposed to have gotten as survivors.
Siri's between biggie or biggie between Sami and Sammy and Bobby Lashley.
I really and I wasn't going here to give my thoughts again.
I mentioned on Monday night raw or my my raw recap that after survivors, Siri's I was tuning in to the Taco Mania podcast.
They do shows after paper views, so check them out their own SportsCastr as well.
They also had a great trivia show on today.
They do that once a month as well. That was on twitch.
But check those guys out.
Have some great content over there.
I talked Armenia and full press coverage.
So, um yeah, I was soon into them, so I wasn't able to give my thoughts on Survivor series.
Um, I think I gave most of my thoughts on raw, but I think one thing that stands out like I said, I really thought that Sami's ain't if it hadn't been for having the rest of the hurt business out there to provide a distraction.
And again, I think it plays up to the story of Sammy Zane having this persecution prop, uh, complex.
But I just felt that they could have had such a better in ring match.
Um, and then you can have her business come out later in the match or something.
But it was just, man, I felt like I was robbed.
Um, but if they do pull off this biggie versus Sammy's a match and I would love to see that, and I think they could put on the match that I think should have happened between Lashley and Zane at Survivor Series.
Or you have the cunning Zane, who's trying to find any way to back door his way out with the championship and he has to feed to the big guy, will be put on this power on display, so I would be very interested to see that match go down.
Um, during the show, we also had Bianka Bella versus Natalia big hard hitting match.
Bailey, for some reason, came out and she was doing commentary.
But then she interfered in the match.
I believe she got swatted away by Natalia and then Natalia ended up suffering the loss.
Being distracted, of course, and suffering on loss.
Thio Bianka Bell.
There, I believe again, roll up because hey, creativity.
Who needs it? But we're kind of singing like so dissension.
And it's funny how these teams, these former teammates, just all of a sudden turn their backs like Nad e and the Lara were hugging.
This time last week.
They were all happy.
They were on the team.
And now that beating the snot out of each other, I guess the team loyalty only goes so far.
Uh, you had that? Oh, we have Murphy fill in for Big Oldest since, oh, this was attacked.
We had Murphy come out with the Mysterio family, and Murphy ends up pulling off the wind.
But by Cem shady means.
And it's like, of course, any other match.
Corey Graves is going to be the hell Commentator where he's always siding with the bad guy.
But he legit had a good reason to side with the bag up because it seems like the mysterio ALS They were pretty much getting in a way and distracting Baron Corbyn, uh, King Corbyn, and they actually interfered in the match and cost him the victory.
And, yeah, Murphy ended up winning.
So it's like, now are we seeing a double turn? Is King Carbon going be a a good guy now, and all the mysterious, just slowly devolved ing.
It was like If you're supporting family, you don't come out there and cheap, like the rest of the family wasn't even doing that for the Mysterio owes when they were coming out and when they were in matches.
Like if Dominique Dominic O. R.
Ray was in a match like the rest of the family wasn't getting in and stepping in the opponents way and grabbing the opponents leg from the outside.
So mm, it might be seeing a double turn.
Y'all I don't know.
It was announced on the 11 30 episode of Raw Oh, for the 11 30 episode of Wrong That Randy Orton is appearing on a moment of bliss with Alexa Bliss to address the fiend bray wise involvement and organ and a J Styles headlining match on Raw earlier this week.
Again, we get another moment of bliss up.
Pretty much isn't going last that long.
Like, didn't we just do this a few weeks ago? We're pretty much order is just like I don't care about your questions.
Where's the feet and legs that Okay, letting me and then the music places, like, Come home now, um, let me see.
Um, I leaving on anything else that happened on the show.
Oh, one last thing, of course.
The It was so nice.
We gotta play it thrice.
The undertaker's final farewell like, Come on, man.
I can see with raw.
You got three hours to kill.
Let's go ahead, sneak.
But it's a for two hours show.
You can't have nothing else.
Like I said, you got all these other people on the sidelines that could be having good matches right now.
Dominic didn't have a match.
Alistair Black didn't have a match, is like the rest of your women's division didn't have match.
You could put on one more match, but now we got to keep on.
I understand undertaker is very, very important to the history of W W E.
I don't think he's three shows and the role important, like Come on, man, y'all ain't even play.
Yeah, I ain't even play the bone yard match this many times, like Come on, man.
All right? Anything else from Mr Thompson? Nope.
I believe it's a Thompson.
