WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: CORBIN VERSUS ROMAN, NXT AND NXT UK MAKE THEIR PRESENCE FELT, TAG TITLE MATCH, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2019-11-09 03:09:00

We start off with a look back at the NXT incursion on Smackdown from last week.

We are in Manchester, England and your announcers are Michael Cole and Corey Graves.

Baron Corbin makes his way to the ring and he has something to say.

Baron says Survivor Series is two weeks away and for the first time, the battle for brand supremacy will be Raw versus Smackdown versus NXT. Baron says all people can talk about is now NXT took over Smackdown and there is blame for that. It all falls on the locker room leader, Roman Reigns. You main evented four Wrestlemanias, you went six years without taking a day off, you are a three time World Champion and a Universal Champion who never lost. You came back from leukemia and how many people can say that. You are a role model. Baron says this fickle, blood sucking audience only cares about one thing and that is what have you done for me lately. What have you done lately? Nothing.

You said your priorities have changed. You are a face, not a fighter. You make appearances and you take days off with your family. You no longer have the desire to be champion because you do not want the responsibility. Do you know the responsibilities to be the king. You are a half step slower. Your brothers in the Shield have abandoned you. People are starting to see through you. You still call yourself the Big Dog, but your testicles have shriveled up into tiny marbles. Your bark is starting to sound like a chihuahua. Baron shows with a graphic description.

Baron asks where is Roman’s music? That wasn’t enough for him to come out. Roman is not man enough to come out and meet him face to face. Your bark is getting worse than your bite. Baron says Roman is not here because he is granting a wish and making a child’s day. Roman will be here at the end of the night and he will stand face to face with him in the main event. Roman will tuck his tail between his legs while Baron beats the crap out of him. Baron says you can bring out your doggie poop bags and scrape up his excrement as a souvenir. You will bend a knee to your king.

We see Big E and Kofi Kingston walking in the back and they are stopped by Kayla Braxton. Kofi and Big E are asked about their title match, but they are asked about a message they have for Xavier Woods. Big E tells him not to drop the soap, but Kofi reminds Big E that Xavier is not in jail, but he is at home recovering. Kofi says the Revival are legitimate and they have fought long and hard to be champion. They talk about being the one who put Woods out. Kofi says they need their seven. Big E asks if they cannot win tonight, how will they catch up to Charlotte Flair. Kofi says they will beat the Revival to become seven time WWE World Tag Team Champions.

We go to commercial.

Roman Reigns arrives at the arena and Shorty G is telling Roman something as we go to commercial.

We are back and Daniel Bryan is walking in the back. He is stopped by Sami Zayn. Sami says he wants to talk to Daniel. Sami mentions his invitation to stand by him and Nakamura. Sami says if you had answered to him then, Daniel would be the NXT Champion. He says he could help Daniel’s career. Sami tells Daniel to ask Nakamura because he is liberated and it is all because of him. Ask Cesaro. He was in a main event match two weeks ago because of him. Nakamrua and Cesaro will be facing Ali and Shorty G. Ask them what Sami did for them.

Match Number Two: Otis Dozovic and Tucker Knight versus

Bayley says this is Shayna being relevant. Bayley asks if Kayla knows who made NXT relevant and it was her and Sasha.

Sasha says they will always live in their shadows. Bayley says on Raw, they were ‘going to keep an eye on me’. You are right because she is the only one who has held the Raw, Smackdown, and NXT women’s championship. Bayley says they can play games too.
