WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: A NEW MATCH FOR THE PPV, DO YOU LIKE FINISHERS?, A LOST IN TRANSLATION COSPLAY MOMENT, A TURN, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2021-02-19 21:59:00

We are in St. Petersburg, Florida and your announcers are Michael Cole and Corey Graves.

The men's Royal Rumble winner, Edge, makes his way to the ring.  

Edge says it is good to be back on Smackdown heading into Elimination Chamber.  Edge says he has a lot of decisions to make on Sunday.  You have Drew McIntyre defending the title in the Elimination Chamber while Roman Reigns is defending the title at Elimination Chamber.  Roman made the better decision since Drew can lose his title in the chamber while Roman gets to face someone who survived the Elimination Chamber.  

Edge says he has thirteen possible opponents so he needs to figure out his options.

Roman Reigns' music interrupts and he stands on the stage with Paul Heyman and Jey Uso.

Roman takes his time to get to the ring and then enter the ring.

Paul hands Roman the mic and Roman listens to the 'crowd' booing him and telling him he sucks.

Roman says you don't have 13 to choose from because there is only one.  The one is a four time, coulda been a five time, shoulda been a six time Wrestlemania main eventer.  You can pick a main eventer or you can pick THE Main Eventer.

Edge says he heard what Roman said about seeing fear in his eyes, but you were seeing a man playing you like a fiddle.  I cannot address you as the main eventer at Wrestlemania.  You lost your cool.  You need me to be the main event of Wrestlemania.  Whoever walks out of the chamber as champion is your main event.  I look in your eyes and I see you are insecure.  

I will acknowledge that I see a man firing on all cylinders.  I respect you and your family, but you got too much too soon.  There is pressure on you and I haven't applied any on you.  I can show the dents in your armor. Is that what you want?  Why don't you answer me.

Sami Zayn's music plays and he comes out with his camera crew.  It is one thing to be disrespected by management but then to be disrespected by two of the biggest stars.  Edge, you talk like it is a foregone conclusion that Roman will be your opponent at Wrestlemania.  Sami says Roman is afraid of what is standing in front of him.

I made my way into the Elimination Chamber and now you are looking at the master manipulator.  Roman, you are looking at the champion of the people.  Sami wants his camera crew to get this moment on film.  Sami wants them to film him pointing at the Wrestlemania sign.  Sami is going to . . . 

Jey super kicks Sami.

Roman and Edge stare each other down as Roman gives Paul the title belt. 

Roman puts his hands behind his back and he says something to Edge that we cannot hear.  Roman backs up and takes his title belt back.

Big E makes his way to the ring to join Michael and Corey on commentary for the next match.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Big E has his love seat, TV table, TV dinner, and foot bath as he sits next to Cole and Graves.

Kayla Braxton is in Gorilla Position with Apollo Crews and she asks him if his aspirations of winning the IC title has affected his friendship with Big E.  He says he respects Big E and Big E told him to take advatnage of teh situation.  That is what he did last week and he was told to go back to catering.  Big E does not know him.  He is from Nigerian royalty.  After I win tonight, I am coming for what I deserve.

Match Number One:  Apollo Crews versus Shinsuke Nakamura

Nakamura with a forearm and Nakamura with a waist lock and knee to the midsection.  Nakamura with a knee drop for a near fall.   Crews with a drop kick and then he kicks Nakamura to the floor.  Crews with a baseball slide that sends Nakamura into Big E's furniture at ringside.  Crews sends Nakamura into Big E and Big E has some words for Crews as we go to commercial.

We are back and Crews with a suplex and he gets a near fall.  Nakamura has a kick blocked and Nakamura with an enzuigiri and a kick.  Nakamura with kicks to the chest.  Nakamura with an Irsih whip and Nakamura blocks boots and hits a sliding German suplex.  Nakamura gets a near fall.  Crews with a spinebuster.  Nakamura with a rollup for the three count.

Winner:  Shinsuke Nakamura

After the match, Crews attacks Nakamura from behind and sends Nakamura to the floor.  Crews sends Nakamura into the ringside barrier.  Big E tells Crews that he lost while Crews picks up the ring steps.  Big E tells Crews it is done and to set down the ring steps and walk away.  He tells Crews this is over. 

Crews hits Big E and Nakamura from behind with the ring steps.  Nakamura is sent over the ringside barrier.  

Crews tosses the ring steps into the ring.  

Crews kicks Big E and sends Big E into the ring.    Crews picks up the ring steps and holds them over his head and the referee tells Crews to put them down and that allows Big E to escape the ring.  Crews says he will put the steps down and he drops them in the general direction of Big E, on the floor.

We are back with a Moments Ago Moment of what Apollo Crews did to Big E after Crews' loss to Nakamura.

We see footage of Big E being stretchered out and Seth Rollins is going to make his way to the ring.

Seth Rollins says that is a tragedy.  Big E was betrayed by his friends and that is a tragedy.  Seth says he knows something about that.  Every one of his 'so called' 'friends' turned their backs on him and betrayed him.  If you don't believe that is a tragedy, watch the footage and the proof.

Seth says that was emotional trauma.  Seth says he is still suffering and it is unacceptable at the workplace and anywhere.  Myself and my lawyers drafted a formal complaint letter and it has been sent to WWE.  We are initiating legal action and we will win. 

As I stated in my letter, months and months and months went into planning his big return to Smackdown.  It was ruined, not by my friends, but by a bunch of losers.  They ruined it because they are afraid.  They want to divide us.  They know that there are millions and millions who have the vision for a better tomorrow and a better Smackdown.  We are powerful and we are winners.  The biggest loser of them all is Cesaro.  He took OUR moment and OUR homecoming and in that moment, he made it about him.  Cesaro disrespected us and patronized up.  He stayed behind after everyone else left and he disrespected us.  What happened to him is what he deserved.

That will be the result if you stand in our way.

Kevin Owens is in the back and Edge stops by to say hello.  Edge says he appreciates how Kevin gets back up after being knocked down.

Kevin says Edge is one of the few who would be able to understand him.  You were focusing and obsessing on getting back for the Royal Rumble.  Kevin says it has been hell because I have been preparing for the Universal Title but I have come up short three times.  All I can think of is winning on Sunday and beating Roman for the Universal Title.

Big E is still being stretchered out of the building as we go to commercial.

Match Number Two:  Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan versus Tamina and Natalya

Ruby and Tamina start things off and Tamina sends Ruby to the mat.  Ruby with punches but Tamina with a head butt.  Liv tags in and Tamina with an elbow.  Tamina blocks a sunset flip and then Tamina stops Liv on a matrix move.  Liv goes for a springboard move and Tamina swats Liv away.  Natalya tags in and she runs Liv into the turnbuckles.  Natalya goes for a slingshot move but Liv with a victory roll.  Ruby tags in and they hit a double drop kick on Natalya.  Ruby with forearms in the corner.

Ruby with a running forearm into the corner.  Ruby with forearms.  Liv tags in and Liv with a facebuster and Ruby with a flatliner for Liv to get a near fall.

Billie Kay makes her way to the ring and she is trying to be Tamina and Natalya's friend.

Natalya with a rollup on Ruby.  Tamina tags in and Tamina knocks Morgan off the apron.  Ruby with a drop kick but Tamina catches Ruby on a cross body and Tamina with a uranage for the three count.

Winners:  Tamina and Natalya

After the match, Tamina super kicks Billie.

We see Sasha Banks at the Daytona 500.

Edge is in the back and Baron Corbin stops by and he says this feels like the main event of Wrestlemania.  Corbin says that he knows Edge made his name on Smackdown but this is his kingdom now.  When you see someone walking around wearing a $10,000 suit and a $39,000 timepiece, you bow down.

Edge says he has a timepiece too and it takes pictures too.

The Norman Door is lifted into the ring as we go to commercial.
