WWE SUPERSIZED SMACKDOWN REVIEW AND RESULTS FROM 10.15.2021
BY JASON MCCARTHY SR
Conti vs Garrett
Quick matchup from Conti and Garrett, Conti truly making a statement taking the victory from the more experienced Santana Garret.
Bobby Fish VS Lee Moriarty
Starting off with effective technical wrestling as Moriarty gets an early advantage bit quickly outwrestled by Fish, transitions back into a hammerlock choke, Moriarty continues to surprise Fish staying in control with technical wrestling, but the hard-hitting offense of Fish finally give him the advantage with a dragon screw and a vicious sliding clothesline to a seated Moriarty.
Fish continues the abuse as Moriarty tries to fight back to no avail continuing the assault with a top wristlock, Lee back to his feet and they begin trading strikes in the ring European uppercut by Lee, Fish nearly gets the Sharpshooter but Lee kicks him in the face, forcing Fish into the corner and nailing a standing enziguri followed by a jumping stomp for two. Lee still fighting keeping fish on his toes fish nails a roundhouse and a side suplex for two. Moriarty continues the punishment on the arm of Fish with a hammerlock side suplex and another near fall Fish counters the suplex attempt getting the rear-naked choke on Moriarty, followed by a leaping knee strike for two. Exploder suplex into the ropes followed by a vicious roundhouse to head for the pinfall victory.
Awesome back and forth contest between Fish and the young Lee Moriarty showing their skills giving us a back and forth battle combining the viciousness of Fish and the tenacity of Lee Moriarty.

Suzuki fires back with kicks of his own and Danielson is eating those, but still leads to a near fall for Suzuki as they fight in the middle of the ring again Suzuki counters the suplex into an armbar as Danielson fights to get to the ropes.

Coverage begins at 8:00 P.M. E.S.T
We open up with Edge making his way to the ring and a video package recapping the feud between Edge and Seth Rollins. Edge places a chair in the middle of the ring and goes through his history with Seth, and admitting that not only did he underestimate Seth but Seth is not Edge light. Comparing them both to devils and claiming he will scar Seth’s soul.
Perfect promo work from Edge to keep the fans invested in quite possibly the best non-title feud in the company.
Finn Balor VS Sami Zayn Semifinal match King of the Ring Tournament
We start with Zami backing off from Balor, and quick chain wrestling, broken up by an elbow to the face from Zayn to Balor, Balor delivers a basement dropkick to Zayn transitioning into an arm drag takedown. Balor forces zayn out of the ring as we go to another commercial break.
We return with Sami in control trading momentum Balor hits a Pele kick to the face of Sami to gain some much-needed separation. After trading blows on the apron Zayn finds himself on the ropes, counters an attempted superplex on Balor soaks up the boos from the crowd, and pays for it eating a dropkick as he descends from the ropes.
Sami counters the reverse DDT elbow into a blue thunder bomb for a near fall. after multiple elbows to the back of the head Zayn is able to hit the exploder suplex into the corner, Sami takes too much time attempting the Heluva Kick Balor counters with a kick to the face, Sami moves out of the way of the Coup De Grace for another near fall, Balor hits the sling blade blast Sami into the corner as Balor goes for another Coupe de Grace rolls up Balor for a two count, Balor counters the exploder kicking Sami in the chest nails Sami with a shotgun dropkick into the corner back up for the Coup De Grace for the pinfall victory.
Now, this is what the king of the ring is all about no shenanigans no interference just two of the best wrestlers on the planet putting on an absolute show.
We return with a recap of the Chaos Lesnar has brought to the Bloodline. Getting us ready for Crown Jewel and truly hyping up Brocks appearance later tonight.
Naomi Vs Sonya Deville
Naomi is out first and Deville drops a bombshell announcing this is now a handicapped match featuring the team of Deville and Shayna Baszler
Deville slaps Naomi after forcing the ref to ring the bell with both Baszler and Deville legal at all times. after a quick dropkick on Baszler Deville and Baszler take control assaulting Naomi with shots to the midsection and verbal abuse, Naomi fights back getting the best of Baszler nearly getting her hands on Deville until Baszler catches her in the Carifuda clutch.
Mot much of a match per se but does advance the story between Naomi and Sonya which will eventually lead to a one-on-one matchup between the two more than likely forced by Adam Pierce due to the abuse of power by Deville.
Seth Rollins Promo
Scathing promo from Seth more time in the cell than Edge and will put an end to this feud
Carmella VS Zelina Vega Semifinals Queens Crown Tournament
Zelina promises not to break Carmellas face convincing her to not wear her protective face mask Carmella taking control early as Zelina fights back with an arm drag, then eats a kick to the face as she apologizes to her friend Zelina takes the win thanks to a distraction by Liv Morgan.
better match than we have seen in the Queen’s crown but still not given enough time to tell an effective story.
Won’t even bother grading the Happy Corbin segment.
missed USOS VS Street Profits and Becky VS Sash will review tomorrow
Reigns Lesnar Contract signing
Lesnar already treating this as a joke with his feet on the table as the special council Paul Heyman reviews the contract for Reigns, and Lesnar continues the mind games claiming he already read the contract with his advocate PaulHeyman
