WWE SmackDown Results: Winners, Grades, Reaction, Highlights from October 30

Sana Ejaz Khan


    Most of the Survivor Series card was announced on Raw, so this week's SmackDown was all about filling up the blue brand's teams and pushing the matches that will be featured.

    The Raw teams already include Shayna Baszler, Nia Jax, Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke and Lana on the women's side and Keith Lee, Sheamus and AJ Styles on the men's team. 

    We also know the various champions will battle each other in individual matches at Survivor Series. This week SmackDown was all about filing up those teams. 

    We also saw the fallout from Roman Reigns defeating Jey Uso at Hell in a Cell. Did Jey bend the knee or was he kicked out of his own family?

    Let's take a look at everything that happened on this week's SmackDown. 

Bow Down to the Tribal Chief

1 OF 6

    SmackDown opened with Reigns and Paul Heyman heading to the ring while Jey awaited their arrival. After a video package, Uso grabbed the mic from Heyman and tells Reigns he didn't beat him because Reigns had to resort to attacking Jimmy. 

    The Tribal Chief said he can make whatever excuses he wants but he still quit. Uso said he can't respect Reigns for what he did and asked how he could do this to his own family. Reigns said he did what was necessary to prove a point. 

    Uso said he hates Reigns and began crying. The Big Dog said he loves his cousin and always has but if he doesn't fall in line by the end of the night, he is out of the family. 


    Grade: A



    WWE's video editing team has always produced incredible work and the video for Reigns vs. Uso from HIAC was no exception. It was brilliantly edited and produced to make the story as emotional as possible.

    As far as the actual in-ring segment is concerned, both men played their roles to perfection. Reigns was quiet, poised and said everything with a straight face while Uso was a sobbing mess of emotions. 

    This storyline has been great from the moment it began and it continues to be one of the best in WWE right now. 

Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler

2 OF 6


    Robert Roode accompanied Dolph Ziggler to the ring for his match against Kevin Owens. The Winner received a spot on the SmackDown Survivor Series team. 

    Ziggler and Roode were able to trick KO early so The Showoff could take control. He hit a neckbreaker for a quick two-count before raking the eyes of Owens. 

    Roode attacked Owens from behind while Ziggler distracted the ref but the official realized something nefarious was going down and kicked The Glorious One to the back. 

    We returned from a break to see Owens beginning to make a comeback. Ziggler countered a Popup Powerbomb with a Fameasser for a near-fall. KO blocked a superkick and hit a Stunner for the pin. 


    Grade: C+



    This was a paint-by-numbers match but it wasn't bad by any means. Owens and Ziggler are both world-class performers. This just wasn't an attempt at a five-star match.

    Roode being involved did little to add to the outcome but keeping him and Ziggler together for the tag team division is smart, so having him there made sense.

Bianca Belair vs. Billie Kay vs. Natalya

3 OF 6

    After all three women approached Adam Pearce backstage, he booked a triple threat match with Natalya, Bianca Belair and Billie Kay for a spot on the Survivor Series team.

    Kay started by pie-facing both women before rolling out of the ring so they could fight each other. Belair ran over Natalya and Kay tried to roll her up but failed to get the pin. 

    Belair hit a beautiful handspring moonsault for a two-count. The Queen of Harts applied a Sharpshooter and Kaye put her in a chinlock. Nattie realized what was happening and released the hold to deal with Kay. The EST hit the KOD for the pin to earn a spot on the Survivor Series team. 


    Grade: B-



    This was a tale of three very different characters. Kay was the opportunist looking to take advantage of any situation. Natalya was the veteran trying to prove she still belongs. Belair was the newcomers looking to establish herself.

    Each Superstar played her part well and contributed to this being a fun triple threat match. Kay was especially good playing a somewhat cowardly competitor but Belair stole the show with her exciting brand of offense. WWE made the right call by putting her on the team. 

Murphy Offers an Apology

4 OF 6

    Murphy and Aalyah Mysterio came to the ring so he could apologize to Rey and Dominik for everything he did when he was with Seth Rollins. He said he knows he did horrible things but he needs to apologize for his actions.

    He asked them to come to the ring but The Messiah showed up instead. He said the Mysterios will never accept him but he will forgive Murphy and embrace whatever kind of relationship he has with Aalyah. 

    He tried to get into their heads but Dominik attacked Rollins from behind. Murphy pulled Dom away and started beating on Rollins himself. This led to Murphy and Dom getting into a fight. Rey tried to intervene but he ended up trying to hit the 619 until Aalyah stopped him.

    She said she loved Murphy and refused to go with them. Dom and Rey left while she helped Murphy to his feet. She kissed him while Rollins looked on with a smile. 


    Grade: C+



    Aalyah is 19 and that makes her a grown woman, but the age gap between her and the 32-year-old Murphy still makes this whole situation a little uncomfortable to watch.

    That being said, everyone in this segment did a decent job with their part. Aalyah is still new to being a performer but looked more comfortable than she has in past weeks.

    It will be interesting to see if Murphy and Aalyah end up aligning with Rollins or if the Mysterios finally accept his apology. 

The Street Profits vs. Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura

5 OF 6

    The Street Profits gave a quick promo before the match directed at The New Day before Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura came out for this bout.

    Angelo Dawkins started off against Cesaro but it didn't take long for Montez Ford to tag in. As we went to a break, Cesaro propelled him over the barricade like it was nothing.

    We returned to see Ford just starting to mount some offense against Nakamura. Dawkins got the hot tag and went on a rampage. Cesaro and Nakamura teamed up on him and almost won before Ford broke up a pin. 

    With a little help from Dawkins, Ford was able to hit a massive frog splash to get the pin and the win. 


    Grade: B+



    The Street Profits have quickly developed a reputation for having fun matches and this was yet another to add to the list.

    Cesaro and Nakamura are so good that they could have a great match with anyone, so they look even better when they are in the ring with two guys like Ford and Dawkins who can keep up with them.

    If and when WWE wants to make this a title feud, they will produce some stellar matches. 

Daniel Bryan vs. Jey Uso

6 OF 6

    They locked up and Uso took control early with some aggressive strikes. He looked angry because he knew what was coming at the end of the show.

    Uso looked conflicted about going after Bryan so hard but he kept at it. The Yes Man flipped out of the corner and hit a running forearm to take Jey down. He unloaded with the Yes Kicks. Uce rolled out of the ring and that is when Reigns and Heyman came out. 

    We returned to see Uso counter a superplex to get a two-count. He and Bryan traded strikes and Uso nailed him with a superkick. Bryan blocked the Superfly Splash and applied the Lebell Lock. Uso got to the ropes to force a break. Uso was able to get the pin with an Uso Splash. 

    After the match, Uso acknowledged Reigns as the head of the table and told him "I'm with you." Reigns stared down at Bryan and Uso took it as a sign. He leveled Bryan with a superkick and hit another Superfly Splash. Uso said he understands now and Reigns told him to make Bryan understand.

    Uce pulled him out of the ring and beat him down before sending him into the steel steps. He put Bryan through the announce table with a Superfly Splash and then kept beating on him. 


    Grade: B+



    Uso finally bowing down to his cousin and joining him on the dark side seemed impossible a few weeks ago but after seeing this segment, it was the right call.

    This storyline can go in several directions moving forward and whatever they decide to do, we know Uso and Reigns will be able to pull it off after what they have done so far.

    Bryan was a great choice to be the sacrificial lamb because he is one of the most popular Superstars and a career underdog. Everything about this ending to SmackDown worked
