WWE SmackDown Results: Friday, September 3, 2021

Street Profits vs. The Usos ends in a No Contest

Montez Ford might have had the scariest bump of 2021 as he landed right on his face during a tope to the outside.

Given how great their previous match was, it was very disappointing to see this match end so suddenly via non-finish.

Becky Lynch Faces off with Bianca Belair

Becky Lynch baited this crowd into chanting “you deserve it,” which tells me her days as a babyface are done.

This new Becky Lynch is shredded enough to be a an unlikable villain rather than the everywoman she portrayed as Becky Balboa.

Bianca Belair had an awesome rebuttal to Becky Lynch’s similarly awesome slow-burning heel promo. As much doubt as there is for Becky Lynch heel turn, WWE might be on to something.

Rick Boogs def. Dolph Ziggler

Call me crazy, but it feels like Rick Boogs is on the precipice of a mega-push. It’s as if Vince McMahon just found out Shinsuke Nakamura’s shredded guitar player is also a wrestler.

Toni Storm looks like she’ll be inserted in this feud as a love interest of Rick Boogs. The Boogs train is operating at lightspeed.

Cesaro def. Seth Rollins by Disqualification

Before this match even began I felt like the finish was going to be Seth Rollins winning via Spear. That did not happen, so perhaps they’re saving that finish for Rollins’ rematch against Edge.

As expected, Seth Rollins is now emulating Edge following last week’s promo. For now, this is limited to Edge’s moveset.

Cesaro swung Seth Rollins 20 times, a la WrestleMania 37, but unfortunately these fans either lost count or got tired of counting.

Edge saved Cesaro from a con-chair-to, but knowing he was in the building this whole time, where was he in the several minutes Cesaro was being assaulted by Rollins?

Logan Paul Appears on the K.O. Show

WWE came to its senses and booked Logan Paul as the heel he was born to play.

If Happy Corbin had Logan Paul as his full-time manager, Corbin would be world champion.

Naomi was once again shunned by Sonya Deville, leading to Sonya Deville saying “anyway, Karen…” if I didn’t know any better, I’d say WWE was doing a racially charged angle where a black talent is less of a priority. Sounds like a company I know.

Roman Reigns def. Finn Balor

Roman Reigns received yet another notch on his O.P. belt when he kicked out of the coup de grace.

Every time Finn Balor is about to receive a world title match, he is sabotaged and management just turns a blind eye to it. I won’t blame him one bit when he turns heel.

Finn Balor was attacked before this match and was protected even more by fading into submission rather than tapping.
