WWE Smackdown Highlights, Happenings and Match Results – 01/11/2019

On this week’s Friday night Smackdown, we witnessed the great segments where NXT took over the Smackdown. As Survivor Series is coming and in Survivor Series it will be NXT Vs RAW Vs Smackdown. We also saw a WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship match between Bayley and Nikki Cross. So stay tuned and got through the highlights.

Brock Lesnar

WWE Smackdown started with Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman entering the ring. Paul Heyman being Brock Lesnar’s manager, as usually praised him. According to Paul, Brock took the revenge of 9 years, from Cain Velasquez. But he is not in a mood to celebrate the victory.

Paul also showed footage of Brock Lesnar and Cain match from Crown Jewel. Heyman seemed in a different mood that night. He is angry for Rey Mysterio, who attacked Brock Lesnar after the match in Crown Jewel with a couple of chair shots.

So Paul Heyman delivers a warning signal to Vince Mcmohan that either send Rey Mysterio to Smackdown so that my client can take revenge from him or Brock will go to RAW to hunt down Rey Mysterio.

Brock Lesnar Quit Smackdown

He further added that Brock will not care about the contract. He is leaving Smackdown right here right now. At last, Brock announced to quit from Smackdown. After then they both left the ring and went backstage searching for Rey Mysterio. We also saw Triple H, who is known as ‘The Father’ of NXT and Shawn Micheals at the end of this segment.

Nikki Cross vs Bayley for WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship

So, guys, this is the match for what we were waiting for. A few days ago Nikki won the opportunity to be the number one contender for the WWE Championship match. But at that time WWE didn’t clear about when the match will take place.

Now is the moment. Nikki Cross at the starting of the match tried to pin two times by rolling her up from the back.

Nikki Cross seemed to be in full control from the beginning of the match. Despite giving High-Risk Maneuvers, Nikki couldn’t able to turn it into victory. Bayley applying Elbow Drop and then Facebuster to Nikki leads to winning the match. Bayley successfully retained her Championship.

But Nikki was superb in the match. And here comes the NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler from NXT into the ring, first attacking Sasha Bank and then Bayley. And from here the showdown of NXT in Smackdown begins.

But the interesting thing was, the crowd chanted Bayley’s when Baszler attacked Bayley. So this could be an indication from WWE about a new feud. We could see Bayley Vs Shayna in the upcoming days.

Sami Zayn And NXT

We also witnessed a segment where Sami Zayn giving an interview backstage and got interrupted by Matt Riddle and Keith Lee from NXT. Matt Riddle and Keith Lee didn’t like what Sami said in the interview. So they ran after him, chasing him up to the ring.

Matt Riddle and Keith Lee started attacking Sami with their respective moves and conquered the ring. This is the second time in the show when NXT superstars dominated Smackdown stars.


As you all know that ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt was going to appear in the MIZ TV on Smackdown. But it could be a possible reason because of Crown Jewel he couldn’t able to make up for the show.

The MIZ announced about Bray Wyatt that he will not be here tonight. By looking at the appearance of MIZ, anyone can say that he is in a mood of the fight. But who is his opponent?

Its Tommaso Ciampa. Another superstar from NXT entered the ring. Tommaso challenged MIZ for a fight. Tommaso said to The MIZ “you always keep on doing shows and never fight”. MIZ answered, “everybody keeps on saying this to me, but you are on my show”. The MIZ said to Tommaso that he can deliver his statement and leave. Later on, MIZ accepted his challenge.

MIZ vs Tommaso Ciampa

Tommaso took full control of the match by attacking MIZ in the ringside. MIZ came back in the match after a neck breaker to Tommaso. After countering many attacks from Tommaso, MIZ attacked him with DDT.

And then a Boston Crab from Tommaso. Tommaso applied Fairy Tail to pinned MIZ and ended the match.

It seems like today nobody can stop NXT Stars.
