WWE SmackDown Results: Winners, Grades, Reaction and Highlights from November 18

Sana Ejaz Khan

    The Bloodline continued its march to Survivor Series Friday night on SmackDown.

    With Survivor Series: War Games just eight days away, and a united team of The Brawling Brutes and Drew McIntyre bearing down on them, The Bloodline found themselves reeling for the first time in what felt like an eternity to close out last week's show.

    Friday night, the most dominant faction in professional wrestling sought to turn the tide back in its favor as Sami Zayn battled Butch in a SmackDown World Cup Quarterfinal match.

    Was The Honorary Uce able to send a message to the Brutes on behalf of The Bloodline and remind them who they are dealing with or did the artist formerly known as Pete Dunne score a win that only further put Roman Reigns and his family on the defensive?

    Find out with this recap of the November 18 episode of SmackDown.

Match Card

1 OF 8
    • SmackDown World Cup Quarterfinal Match: Butch vs. Sami Zayn
    • SmackDown World Cup Quarterfinal Match: Ricochet vs. Mustafa Ali
    • Shotzi vs. Shayna Baszler

Opening Promo

2 OF 8


    The Brawling Brutes and Drew McIntyre kicked off the night's show, still riding high from their message-sending beatdown of The Bloodline on last week's show.

    Sheamus called out the long, two-decade history between him and The Scottish Warrior but revealed that their issues have created mutual respect among them. So much so that McIntyre was his best man three weeks ago in New York.

    Sami Zayn interrupted the proceedings, arrogantly dismissed the idea of a mystery fifth opponent, and built hype for his match with Butch later in the night.

    This was perfectly fine promo work from all involved, with some nice continuity from the babyfaces.

    Yes, Sheamus and McIntyre have a long history that includes an Old-Fashioned Donnybrook match on the pre-SummerSlam edition of SmackDown so it was a welcome addition to this show for the two of them to explain why they are suddenly close enough to go into battle together.

    Zayn remained as great, and over, as ever and helped elevate the segment with his presence alone.



    Top Moments

    • "Is this thing on this time?" Sheamus said, motioning toward the microphone in response to last week's technical gaff.
    • The babyfaces momentarily got a "brutey" chant going in response to the "ucey" chant that The Bloodline created as a result of Zayn's antics a few weeks back.
    • "We don't really care who the fifth member is," Zayn said, interrupting the babyfaces and preventing the revelation of their Survivor Series: War Games team.
    • "Ucey in the Sky with Diamonds," Zayn called himself in a great line.
    • "It will be the last thing you expect," Sheamus forewarned Zayn, suggesting he be less arrogant about the identity of The Bloodline's fifth opponent.

SmackDown World Cup Quarterfinal: Ricochet vs. Mustafa Ali

3 OF 8


    On the heels of Monday's Raw, where he suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Bobby Lashley, Mustafa Ali sought to shake off the effects of the one-sided physicality and defeat Ricochet in the first round of the SmackDown World Cup.

    Ali proved resilient, shaking off the crippling injuries to test his opponent. A late 450 splash, though, failed to hit its target as Ali crashed into the mat and drove the air out of himself. Ricochet capitalized and delivered a Shooting Star Press for the win.

    This was a strong match with some superb storytelling by way of selling on the part of Ali. The entire thing was built around the idea that he had injured ribs that would adversely affect his ability to compete.

    He threw everything he had at his opponent but unfortunately, one miscalculation further injured him and set him up for the finish. It was simple, effective storytelling elevated by Ali understanding the assignment and delivering a grade-A performance.

    Ricochet winning sets him up to battle Braun Strowman in the semifinals and given The Monster Among Monster's recent comments about "floppy flop" wrestlers, that one is certainly all the more interesting than its babyface vs. babyface status.


    Ricochet pinned Ali



    Top Moments

    • During a backstage confrontation, Ali insisted that if he was breathing, he was fighting and told Ricochet he would see him in the ring.
    • Ali delivered a second-rope backstabber to Ricochet to seize control entering the break. In doing so, though, he further injured his ribs.
    • Ricochet rolled through a plancha and countered into a Blue Thunder Drive on the arena floor.
    • Ricochet delivered a Full Nelson suplex, followed with a lariat and standing moonsault for a great near-fall.

Madcap Moss vs. Karrion Kross

4 OF 8


    Three weeks after suffering a humiliating loss to Karrion Kross in which he was put to sleep in the Kross Jacket, Madcap Moss sought revenge against the former NXT world champion one-on-one.

    For the second time in as many showdowns, he suffered the same fate.

    Despite a strong showing from an intense Moss, Kross was able to lock in the Kross Jacket and force the submission win. After the match, Emma rushed the ring to check on the fallen babyface while Kross taunted from the floor.

    This is a potentially beneficial program for both men.

    Kross was thrown into an upper-card feud with Drew McIntyre before fans had the opportunity to really invest in him. Moss is a guy who has fallen by the wayside but not has the opportunity to benefit from feuding with a performer in Kross who management clearly sees a lot in.

    Letting Kross develop his character on the main roster, and allowing Moss to rebuild momentum and credibility, is the perfect way to go about utilizing both guys in a manner that helps them establish themselves. Adding Emma and Scarlett to the mix for a potential tag team feud is an intriguing possibility, too.


    Kross defeated Moss via submission



    Top Moments

    • Prior to the match, Emma gave Moss a pep talk, adding to their budding romance storyline.
    • Scarlett cut off a charging Moss, bringing a halt to his momentum.
    • Emma hit the ring to check on Moss after the match and a staredown with Kross and Scarlett teased a potential mixed tag team match in the future.

Bray Wyatt Promo

5 OF 8


    Bray Wyatt made his way to the ring and, once again, waxed poetically about his personal journey to being a better man.

    LA Knight interrupted his in-ring promo and claimed to accept Wyatt's apology before smacking him. A second smack unleashed a stoic stare on the face of the intensely angry Wyatt, who did not act on his desires to unleash pain and suffering on Knight, but whose Uncle Howdy persona flashed on the screen behind the NXT export to close out the segment.

    The Wyatt-Knight feud may be the most unexpected pairing on WWE television but there are few choices better to torment, taunt and prod at Wyatt, thus unleashing his dark side and giving fans a look at the Eater of Worlds they knew before.

    Before this aware, apologetic, forgiveness-seeking incarnation.

    The match will be interesting, if only because of the difference in the dynamic of styles, but what fans are really interested in is the next chapter of the Wyatt story. Hopefully, it presents itself sooner rather than later.



    Top Moments

    • "Why do I do the things that I do and can I actually change?" Wyatt asked.
    • "The rarest commodity around here is respect," LA Knight said, insinuating that he earned Wyatt's respect a week ago.
    • "Now we're even. Apology accepted. I can go my way, you can go yours," Knight said after slapping Wyatt in the face. 
    • "The decision you're about to make right now is going to change the rest of your life," Wyatt said before extending his hand to Knight, who slapped him again

Shotzi vs. Shayna Baszler (with Ronda Rousey)

6 OF 8

    Credit: WWE

    On the heels of a No. 1 Contender's Match win a week ago, and a backstage attack that left her unconscious, Shotzi sought a measure of revenge against Shayna Baszler.

    Accompanying The Submission Magician? SmackDown Women's champion Ronda Rousey, whom The Ballsy Badass will challenge in Boston at Survivor Series: War Games.

    The match was interrupted frequently by outside interference, first from Rousey, then Raquel Rodriguez, who looked to prevent further interjections. The distractions caused by them allowed Shotzi to roll Baszler up for the win.

    On the surface, Shotzi picking up a win is a big deal and furthers her momentum entering Survivor Series but she was, at any given point, the third or fourth most focused-on star in this segment.

    That does not help her or the creative efforts to build her into a star and legitimate threat to Rousey. Unfortunately, this was a creative misfire, especially since Rodriguez ended up being the real deciding factor in this one.


    Shotzi defeated Baszler



    Top Moments

    • A mid-match confrontation between Shotzi and Rousey nearly provided just the distraction the former needed as Baszler nearly collided with her friend on the apron.
    • Raquel Rodriguez appeared, providing another distraction, this one aiding her tag team partner. 

Braun Strowman and New Day vs. Imperium

7 OF 8


    After a backstage confrontation earlier in the show between New Day and Imperium led to the making of a Six-Man Tag Team Match for tonight, Braun Strowman joined Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods in the battle against GUNTHER, Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci.

    The heels isolated Woods until a hot tag from Strowman sparked a comeback for the babyfaces. He steamrolled Vinci and Kaiser and manhandled GUNTHER in a way that no one has since his arrival in WWE.

    A brief tease of a showdown between those two competitors gave way to New Day putting Kaiser away with the Midnight Hour for the win.

    The match was fine, but the idea that GUNTHER is afraid of Strowman is ridiculous. He is the Ring General, capable of match power, intensity and ferocity with anyone. If you want to tell the story of him being caught off-guard by the involvement of The Monster Among Monsters, fine, but to book him to look like a coward is asinine and only takes away from his aura.

    So much was put on the potential showdown between them if Strowman manages to win the SmackDown World Cup that one has to wonder if the big man suddenly is a red herring, opening up the potential for someone else to emerge from the field victoriously.


    Strowman and New Day defeated Imperium



    Top Moments

    • Gunther is every bit as tall as Strowman and the commentary team did not make enough of a deal about this.
    • GUNTHER chopped the hell out of Strowman, then took off running around the squared circle in fear of the charging monster.
    • As Woods pinned Kaiser, Strowman entered the ring, causing GUNTHER to retreat from the ring. 

SmackDown World Cup Quarterfinal: Butch vs. Sami Zayn

8 OF 8


    The Brawling Brutes earned more momentum at the expense of The Bloodline in Friday's main event as Butch defeated Sami Zayn to advance to the semifinals of the SmackDown World Cup tournament.

    A distraction caused by Jey Uso and his brawl with Sheamus allowed Butch to catch Zayn with the Bitter End and score the pinfall victory.

    After the match, Roman Reigns made his presence felt, entering the arena to a thunderous ovation before laying waste to The Brawling Brutes and Drew McIntyre.

    Then, the reveal of the fifth member of the babyface team at Survivor Series: War Games as Kevin Owens entered to an enormous pop.

    He uncorked a series of superkicks and left Reigns reeling to end the show.

    This was great stuff all around.

    The match itself was fun and everything else that followed was even better. The reaction for Reigns was incredible and Owens matched it, the crowd overwhelmingly enthusiastic about his involvement in the feud and the upcoming War Games match.

    It remains to be seen how healthy Owens will be by November 26 but if he is even a fraction of 100 percent, one should probably expect another intense performance from the Prizefighter.


    Butch pinned Zayn



    Top Moments

    • Butch wiped out Jimmy Uso on the floor. 
    • The brawl between Sheamus and Jey Uso spilled into the ring, then out of it. 
    • Solo Sikoa wiped out Butch before engaging McIntyre in a brawl.
    • Reigns made a STAR entrance, the likes of which are reserved for the absolute tippy-top guys in one's industry. The pop, the energy...unrivaled in the business today. Bar none for full-time competitors.
    • Then Owens went and matched that pop.

AEW Rampage Results: Winners, Grades, Reaction and Highlights from November 18

Sana Ejaz Khan

    Friday's lineup

    Welcome to ProfessionalPK coverage and recap of AEW Rampage on November 18.

    This is the final show before Saturday's Full Gear PPV, so it was all hands on deck as AEW prepared itself for another long event.

    Hook stepped into the ring with Lee Moriarty, Athena took on Madison Rayne, Lance Archer faced Ricky Starks in the semifinals of the world title eliminator tournament, and Ortiz teamed up with Eddie Kingston to battle Konosuke Takeshita and Jun Akiyama.

    Let's take a look at everything that happened during Friday's show.

Lance Archer vs. Ricky Starks

1 OF 4

    Lance Archer and Ricky Starks.

    The show opened with a scene of mayhem as Starks and Archer began fighting in the backstage area. They fought toward the ring but ended up going into the crowd before the ref could call for the bell.

    These two beat the life out of each other before ever getting close to the ring. While he was giving up a few dozen pounds and several inches in height, Starks did a great job staying in the fight. He didn't feel like as much of an underdog as he usually would in a situation like this.

    The Murderhawk Monster took control with a big chokeslam on the apron as the show cut to a break. He maintained dominance until Starks countered the setup to his finisher and unloaded with big shots to the head.

    These two work very different styles, but they managed to make them work for each other to put on a fun and competitive opening match. Starks ended up hitting a huge spear and rolled right into the pin for the win. As Brian cage came out to confront his Full Gear opponent, Archer attacked him from behind.

    Winner: Ricky Starks

    Grade: B+

    Notable Moments and Observations

    • Archer diving over the barricade to take Starks down was a great spot. The camera was in the perfect spot to capture it, too. 
    • Starks is a much better babyface than expected. He was such a good heel that there was doubt he would ever be able to be likable, but he is doing a great job. 
    • The chokeslam on the apron looked brutal. Starks sold it well. 

Hook vs. Lee Moriarty

2 OF 4

    Hook and Lee Moriarty.

    The Firm's Moriarty took on FTW champion Hook in the second match of the night. Taigastyle had a slight height and weight advantage, but Hook more than made up for it with his speed.

    These two work similar styles, so they had great chemistry right away. They utilized strikes, throws and submissions to make this a fun bout that showed off their technical prowess.

    Stokely Hathaway tripped Hook to cause a distraction. The 27-year-old had control for a few minutes after that, but Hook still managed to pick up the win with Red Rum to extend his winning streak.

    Moriarty helped Hook deliver his best match to date. Both men looked good, but credit is due to Taigastyle for being the first person to give the FTW champ a run for his money.

    Winner: Hook

    Grade: B+

    Notable Moments and Observations

    • Jericho has been much better on commentary ever since he realized he doesn't have to yell everything he says. 
    • Moriarty should be on TV more often. He works so well with anyone. 
    • Hook has improved his selling but it's still one of the areas where he needs a little work. 
    • The back of Hook's head hit the middle turnbuckle after one move. It looked rough but he appeared to be fine. 

Athena vs. Madison Rayne

3 OF 4

    Athena and Madison Rayne.

    Athena attacked Rayne as she was posing in the corner to get the action going. She continued to show more of her new heel persona as she began to make her opponent suffer.

    A weird spot with a suplex led to both women going down. It looked like it might have been a botch that was supposed to be a counter from Rayne.

    Athena recovered quickly and won with her finisher in just a couple of minutes. The spot when she hit her head was kind of scary, but nothing else about this stood out.

    Athena and Rayne are both tremendous talents, but this was too short to allow them to do anything special. Mercedes Martinez came out to drive Athena away, so that could be the next ROH Women's Championship feud.

    Winner: Athena

    Grade: C

    Notable Moments and Observations

    • Rayne was shown giving a pre-taped promo when Athena attacked her. They had to cut right back to the ring, but we missed the initial attack until a replay was shown. 
    • Athena's winged jacket is cool but must it must be tough to travel with it in her luggage.
    • Athena laying out Aubrey Edwards got a lot of heat from the crowd. 

Eddie Kingston and Ortiz vs. Konosuke Takeshita and Jun Akiyama

4 OF 4

    Kingston, Ortiz, Takeshita and Akiyama.

    It might not have been a singles match, but Kingston got to face his dream opponent in the main event when he and Ortiz battled Akiyama and Takeshita in a tag team bout.

    The Mad King and Takeshita started in the ring together, but Kingston told him to tag in Akiyama. Takeshita made him wait and locked up to begin the action.

    Ortiz tagged in so Kingston could run across the ring and knock Akiyama down with a cheap shot. Akiyama tagged in and returned the favor after taking down Ortiz.

    We got all the way through the commercial break before the two men everyone wanted to see fight had a chance to engage in battle, but The Mad King had to survive a striking exchange with Takeshita first.

    While they had a chance to fight a bit, AEW purposely booked this match so Kingston and Akiyama did not have a ton of time in the ring together. It feels like a singles match is in their future, so they kept it simple this time.

    This was a hard-hitting affair that ended with Team DDT scoring the win when Akiyama pinned Ortiz. This is definitely leading to something more, possibly as soon as Full Gear if Tony Khan decides to add more to the card.

    Winners: Takeshita and Akiyama

    Grade: B+

    Notable Moments and Observations

    • AEW did a good job illustrating why this was so important to Kingston. It didn't take a lot of work to make this feel like a big deal. 
    • Takeshita's love for Cinnabon is so well-known that fans are bringing signs that mention it. Wrestling fans are the best sometimes. 
    • The piledriver Ortiz took was nasty. When that move looks convincing, it's almost scary. 
    • Ortiz is a lot of fun to watch. He is great at body language and facial expressions.
