WWE SmackDown results, recap, scores: Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn promise to screw up John Cena and Kevin Owens

Undisputed WWE Universal Champions Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn have bad intentions for John Cena and Kevin Owens. Reigns and Zayn didn’t mince words when addressing Cena and Owens, who they will face in a tag team match at SmackDown Finals in 2022.

Last week, Owens recruited Cena as his preferred partner to wrestle Reigns and Zayn on the December 30 episode of SmackDown. The reservation marks 20 consecutive years that Cena will compete in a WWE ring. Before the match, Reigns and Zayn addressed their opponents very aggressively. In other acts at Bloodline, The Usos defended the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Championships against Ashante Adonis and Top Dolla of Hit Row.

SmackDown also served as a testing ground for the next #1 contendership to the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Raquel Rodriguez, Emma, ​​Tegan Nox, Shia Lee, Liv Morgan, Sonya Deville and Chyna Baszler competed in a gauntlet match to determine who would challenge Ronda Rousey for SmackDown supremacy.

CBS Sports was with you all night long with recaps and highlights from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.

Zane promises to erase a dark cloud called Owens

SmackDown’s Bloodline opened up in full force. Special Counsel Paul Heyman revealed that Solo Sekoa would fight Sheamus next week before handing the microphone over to the leader of the group. The confident and calculating Reigns assured the WWE Universe that he and Zayn would defeat Cena and Owens next week. Zayn firmly sided with Reigns, describing Owens as a dark cloud from his past that he would walk away from. Zayn promised that he and Reigns would discredit Owens and Cena. Reigns agreed with Zayn’s remarks, nodded and hugged him to close the segment.

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships – The Usos (J.Uso and Jimmy Uso) (c) defeated. Row (Top Dolla and Ashante Adonis) hit via pinfall After implanting Dolla with 1-D. Heat Roo fought admirably, but their showmanship eventually got the better of them. Dolla tried to show his strength by raising both tag team champions. Dolla’s legs came off the weight, allowing The Usos to time him with a superkick and finish things off with their signature 1-D.

There’s only so much you can expect from a pre-recorded holiday episode of WWE programming. On the plus side, an effort has been made to move the stories forward to a small degree. WWE viewers have been conditioned for some time now to expect very little substance from these pre-taped shows. Reigns and Zayn delivered a fiery promo to open the show, The Usos added another title defense to their history and there were a lot of small developments in other storylines. It wasn’t something to write home about, but it certainly wasn’t bad. The only criticism is Hit Row’s title image. It’s great to see WWE invest in more tag teams, but Hit Row’s work fell short on the main roster and their title shot felt like a throwaway. Grade B-
