WWE will move to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, for the Night of Champions on May 27. The build to the Night of Champions matches continued on WWE Smackdown Episode When The Bloodline’s Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa came face to face with the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. The United States Champion Austin Theory got a new challenger and much more to discuss in this episode. Let’s start WWE Smackdown Results, Winners, Grades, and Analysis from May 19 episode.
Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Tribal Chief Roman Reigns, and Solo Sikoa Segment
WWE undisputed Universal Champions Roman Reigns and his cousin Solo Sikoa entered the ring to discuss their match at Night of Champions against Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, who both interrupted the proceedings. Sami Zayn and Roman Reigns traded insults before The Usos attacked them. The Tribal Chief was not too happy with the Usos for taking things into their hands because he is the decision maker in The Bloodline. However, WWE showed a clear path to WWE Universe that There are more significant cracks in the Bloodline than most people think.
The Bloodline storyline has always been the center point of WWE Smackdown. At Night of Champions, it is now worth watching how WWE booked Roman and Solo to lose because there is a good chance that Sami and KO will retain. Can Jimmy and Jey stand for themselves in front of their manipulative cousin?
Petty Deadly vs The Brawling Brutes
Pretty Deadly made their debut on Smackdown against The Brawling Brutes’ Butch and Ridge Holland. The NXT exports did the trick in this match because they are known for making things enjoyable in NXT. Pretty Deadly’s Prince showed a quality fake-out to get the victory against the seasoned Brawling Brutes.
Winner = Pretty Deadly
Pretty Deadly was a top-tag team in the WWE NXT. WWE management did an excellent job introducing the group with a win over the experienced boys Butch and Holland. Pretty Deadly was a class act in NXT, and they showed in this match that they are here to rule.
Asuka vs Zelina Vega
At the Night of Champions, Asuka will fight WWE Raw women’s champion, Bianca Belair. But she tested herself against Zelina Vega before the big match. Zelina Vega hit a few high-flying moves before Asuka took control. Asuka put her opponent in her trademark submission hold and took the victory. She wanted to punish Vega by sending a loud message to the Champ who arrived on the scene to save the babyface.
Winner = Asuka
Asuka tried to use the mist in this segment as she did last week, which means the mist will take center stage at their clash on Night of Champions. WWE put a strong match for this women’s championship as Asuka and Belair had an intense rivalry in their days at NXT.
The Grayson Waller Effect with AJ Styles
Grayson Waller started his talk show with the WWE Heavyweight championship finalist AJ Styles. AJ Styles discussed things for his match against Seth Rollins at Night of Champions. After a few moments, things got heated up when both Waller and Styles had a tense stare-down. Waller teased AJ Styles that he was waiting for a Seth Rollins victory at Night of Champions.
WWE used a great way to build a future rivalry between these competitors. However, AJ Style put his final words on his match against Seth Rollins. AJ Styles has less chance of winning than Rollins. But, a program between Waller and Styles is a welcome addition to the SamckDown.
The Street Profits vs Rick Boogs and LA Knight
LA Knight told WWE Universe he could win Tag Team Gold with any partner. It was the first test of LA Knight, who has a partner in Rick Boogs. The Street Profits is one of the best tag teams in WWE. Ford and Dawkins performed strongly in this match to beat the egotistic LA Knight and music star Rick Boogs.
Winner = Street Profits
WWE has no plans for Street Profits, which is an annoying face because of how talented both these competitors are in the ring. LA Knight is still over with the crowd. WWE must put him in a good program so he might not lose his fans. It was a good win for Profits as they look forward to a lengthy program with the newly made Tag Team.
The NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions vs Yulisa Leon and Valentina Feroz
Isla Dawn and Alba Fyre debuted against two new NXT competitors, Feroz and Leon. They squashed in minutes and showed her dominance to the SmackDown crowd. The big news came after the match when Michael Cole announced that Liv Morgan caught an injury that forced her and Raquel Rodriguez to vacate the Tag Team Titles. Now, Raquel will have to find a partner to take part in a WWE Tag Team Championship match against the teams of Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler, Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville, and Bayley and Dakota Kai.
Winner = Isla Dawn and Alba Fyre
WWE introduced NXT tag team champions as a pure badass team suitable for their future on the main roster. It is heartbreaking news for Liv Morgan, who does not deserve her title reign to end this way. She was one of the most over-stars in the last two years. However, it will be interesting to see if WWE gives Shayne and Ronda a title win in this program.
Austin Theory Promo and New Challenger
The United States champion entered the arena for a promo in which he took all the credit to retain the championship against more prominent names. The new challenger, The Celtic Warrior Sheamus, ended this pathetic segment with a Brogue Kick. Sheamus entertained the crowd with a funny mic drop to end the segment.
WWE must take Austin Theory out of John Cena’s boots to give him his persona and character. It just did not work properly in his favor so far. However, a program with the experienced Sheamus will surely give him a good opponent. The match will be worth watching.
Rey Mysterio and Santos Escobar vs The Usos
The Usos put everything on the line against Mysterio and Escobat and won this match. However, they could not get successful thanks to timely interference from Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. The match showed us how talented both teams are. The camera went backstage, where the Tribal Chief looked pissed off with his cousins after losing another match. He ordered some punishment for Usos and asked Solo to do so.
Winner = Mysterio and Escobar
WWE SmackDown has a great ending, as this was the best match of this week’s show. Rey is a legend, and Escobar has a great talent. The Usos is the best tag team in WWE. No matter how the situation goes, both Jey and Jimmy perform well. WWE builds an excellent narrative for The Usos to interrupt in the Tag Team Match of Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa vs Sami and Owens. It is unknown which team will win this match because Usos need to settle the score with both of these teams. It was all from our WWE Smackdown Results, Winners, Grades, and Analysis from May 19.
