WWE SmackDown Outcomes—Friday, July 2, 2021
Edge Opens WWE SmackDown
Edge used Roman Reigns’ eyes at WrestleMania to attempt to persuade those that he has an opportunity at Cash within the Financial institution. He in all probability gained’t, but it surely’s good to see a reputable challenger with a Corridor of Fame resume problem Roman Reigns.
Roman Reigns has been the Thanos of WWE—proper right down to the golden glove—but Edge used the Thanos catchphrase of “I’m inevitable.”
Jimmy went from “No person’s B—h” to lap canine with zero discover.
Jimmy Uso wore a hoodie that merely learn “YEET,” and if this can be a WWEShop.com hoodie, WWE may have gained a full level of road cred.
Shinsuke Nakamura and Huge E def. Baron Corbin and Apollo Crews
This week, Pat McAffee twerked on Michael Cole’s head throughout Shinsuke Nakamura’s theme music as he continues to search out new and thrilling methods to get hype for this man.
I’m wondering if WWE has trademarked “Kingsuke” but.
King Corbin shedding all his cash would imply a lot extra if he truly had a gimmick the place he was wealthy, as a substitute of constructing a collection of passing remarks to all the cash he makes.
WWE is destined to run this joke into the bottom, but it surely was nonetheless humorous when announcer Greg Hamilton “by accident” referred to as Baron Corbin King Corbin earlier than having to appropriate himself.
Baron Corbin is dedicated to this downfall as he grew out his balding hair and patchy beard.
This match’s end was a automobile being towed, which in fact distracted Corbin.
I stay curious as to if—and the way—this can result in a Completely satisfied Corbin gimmick.
Bianca Belair Calls out Bianca Belair
Bianca Belair accused Bayley of being obsessed along with her, but nonetheless admitted that Bayley was in her head, so I assume two issues will be true.
You would virtually hear this feud’s expiration date coming and going throughout these promos.
An “I Give up” Match is so becoming for this feud as a result of, sooner or later, someone goes to wish to surrender on this rivalry and transfer on.
Kevin Owens def. Sami Zayn
After every week of hypothesis as as to whether or not he would return after saying he was taking a break, Kevin Break formally did simply that after only a small handful of days together with his household.
This match acquired the two-commercial therapy.
Kevin Owens doing a entrance flip via a double desk seemed extra enjoyable than it did painful.
Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens have all of the chemistry on this planet, and this match was superb because it ought to have been, however a Final Man Standing match for this feud felt like they’d lastly squeezed the final drop out of this peach.
Zelina Vega Returns as Cash within the Financial institution Participant
WWE has now set a precedent that its ladies don’t essentially need to compete for a spot in one among its most necessary matches. As a substitute, their destiny comes right down to the whims of Sonya Deville. Given the backstage politics and posturing in professional wrestling, I assume this can be a practical storyline?
Sonya Deville has now booked “probably the most stunning lady” and a former supervisor as contributors in Cash within the Financial institution just like the heel authority determine she is.
