WWE Friday Night SmackDown Quick Recap for February 4, 2022
Matches Tonight: Six (approx. 23 minutes)
- Singles Match: Ridge Holland w / Sheamus vs Ricochet w / Cesaro. Short match that saw Ricochet roll up Holland off a Sheamus / Cesaro distraction. 8: 26-8: 28pm EST.
- Tag Match: Ridge Holland & Sheamus vs Ricochet & Cesaro. Ridge Holland pinned picked up the win in the ultra-short match. 8: 32-8: 34pm EST.
- Match Type: Jimmy w / Jey Uso vs Erik w / Ivar. Pathetically short match that saw Uso pick up the win with an Uso Splash after a distraction from Jey. 8: 43-8: 44pm EST.
- Singles Match: Aliyah vs Natalya III. Aliyah won by count out in a very short match. Aliyah remains undefeated. 8: 50-8: 53pm EST.
- Singles Contendership Match: Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura w / Rick Boogs vs Jinder Mahal w / Shanky. Mahal does a few moves, Nakamura does a few, and Nakamura wins. Yet another sub-par and short match. 9: 12-9: 15pm EST.
- Tag Main Event Match: Big E & Kofi Kingston vs Los Lotharios. Noticeably, this marks two weeks that they’re referenced as a team with their names–not the New Day moniker. Decent tag match with ample time to give both teams time to shine. The team of Kofi Kingston & Big E picked up the win. 9: 34-9: 44pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
- Reunited and it Feels So Good: WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was reunited with Special Counsel Paul Heyman and Heyman took about 12 minutes to gloat. Then, a truly surprise return as Bill Goldberg re-emerged. Must be time for a KSA premium live event! Sure enough, the Elimination Chamber in two weeks is in the KSA and Goldberg wants the WrestleMania match that never happened two years ago – Reigns v Goldberg for the Universal title. 8: 04-8: 20pm EST.
- Angela’s Back: Drew McIntyre returned after a few weeks out of action and put Corbin on notice – Happy & Moss tried to end Drew’s career but he’s back and he’s going to spend every week making Corbin’s life a living hell. 9: 00-9: 04pm EST.
- Next Week: Aliyah vs Natalya in a Submission / Dungeon match. Naomi vs. Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Also, in two weeks, Sami Zayn challenges Shinsuke Nakamura for the Intercontinental Championship on SmackDown prior to the Elimination Chamber.
- Bout it Bout it, Rowdy Rowdy: Women’s Royal Rumble winner and surprise entrant Ronda Rousey showed up on SmackDown for the first time in history, and in our “main event segment” the Rowdy one chose both Becky Lynch (by way of an announcement from Sonya Deville) and Charlotte Flair, directly in the ring, as her WrestleMania opponent. When we know more of the details, we’ll report ’em here, folks. 9: 51-9: 59pm EST.
