02:02 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Looks like next week is a championship edition of SmackDown as we'll see both the Intercontinental Championship and SmackDown Tag Team Championships defended. Thanks for following along with us, folks. We'll see you next time. 

01:59 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

The Dirty Dawgs hit a Beer Money classic, Drinking While Investing (powerbomb/neckbreaker) but Dominik kicks out. Rey distracts them when he enters the ThunderDome, allowing Dominik to role up Ziggler for the shocking victory. 

The Mysterios defeat The Dirty Dawgs via pinfall. 

After the match, The Usos confront the SmackDown Tag Team Champions. It's a family affair next week as the brothers Jimmy and Jey Uso battle the father and son duo of Rey and Dominik Mysterio for the gold.

01:56 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Dominik fights out of his corner and sends Roode to the floor. Sending Ziggler down as well, Dom catches both Dirty Dawgs with a beautiful dive over the ropes. Back in the ring, Dominik moves up top for a crossbody. Dolph ducks but is sent into the ropes for the 619. Roode trips him up only to be rocked with a big kick. 

Ziggler avoids the 619 and catches the spinning young champion with a Fameasser for the two-count. 

01:55 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Dominik keeps looking at his corner as if his dad is gonna magically appear on the apron. Either Dom's suffered some serious damage tonight or Mysterio's mask gives him invisibility. I'm leaning towards option 1. 

01:53 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

The numbers game is a tough one to overcome, especially when you're up against two elite performers like Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode. The Dirty Dawgs tag in and our, taking turns wearing down and bullying the young WWE Superstar. 

01:50 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Dominick lays into the contenders as the match begins, but a dropkick from Dolph Ziggler stuns him. 

01:49 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

So was it the Dirty Dawgs? Or was it somebody else? 

01:49 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

01:48 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

01:46 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Dolph and Roode claim that this is child abuse, but Dominik refuses to back down. Your main event is up next! 

01:46 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

With Rey unable to compete, doesn't that the Dirty Dawgs are the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions? The ref refuses to make that call. Much like WrestleMania: Backlash, it's going to be a two-on-one match. Dominick steps up just like Rey did last week. 

01:44 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Rey Mysterio begins to pray before the SmackDown Tag Title Match tonight. Unfortunately, when we return from break, Rey's injured. Someone attacked Mysterio while he was praying? Who could've done that?

...oh hey look the Dirty Dawgs are in the ring.

As Nakamura sets up for the Kinshasa, King Corbin runs down to the ring and grabs his crown. It's not enough to give Gable the win, as Nakamura still lays out Gable with the Kinshasa. 

Shinsuke Nakamura defeats Chad Gable via pinfall. 

After the match, Rick Boogs lays out Corbin, making sure the true King of WWE regains his crown. 

01:36 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Otis: "For the academy!"
McAfee: "There it is. That's what it's for." 

I love Pat McAfee. 

01:36 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Shinsuke Nakamura is set to face Chad Gable, but before the match begins Otis drops him with a World's Strongest Slam. Gable hits a series of slams for a two-count. Nakamura bounces back with a running single-leg dropkick and a series of roundhouses. 

01:29 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

I don't know who I'm happier to see, Nakamura or the musical maestro himself Rick Boogs. 

01:29 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

It's Rick Boogs! The greatest hype-man in professional wrestling is here to bring out the King of Strong Style, Shinsuke Nakamura. 

01:28 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

In Roman's locker room, Roman meets with his right-hand man. He asks Jey why they're going after the tag titles when Jey said he was with Roman and not Jimmy. Roman claims that he wants the best for Jey and their family, but he's Main Event Jey Uso now. The tag titles aren't in Roman's plans. 

With Roman, he's in the main event. With Jimmy, he's the curtain jerker. Roman doesn't want Jey to regress so far that people are asking which Uso is which, making Jey wonder if a tag title opportunity is really worth it. 

01:25 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Our next match is Kevin Owens vs Apollo Crews, and the Prize Fighter rushes the Intercontinental Champion with the cannonball. A Swanton Bomb earns KO a two-count. Crews blocks a suplex on the apron and hangs Owens up on the top rope. The champ moves up top but is cut off by Owens. A superkick stuns Crews, only for Crews to leap over the pop-up powerbomb attempt. 

KO is quick on his feet, though, and hits the Stunner. Unfortunately, Commander Azeez spikes KO in the throat with the Nigerian Nail. 

Kevin Owens defeats Apollo Crews via DQ. 

01:19 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

01:18 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

01:17 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Seth Rollins claims that it's not his fault that Cesaro is injured. It's the fault of Cesaro, and the fault of the fans for making him believe he deserves more than he actually does. 

01:15 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

01:12 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Why isn't Cesaro here tonight? Rollins is happy to show us footage from last week. Cesaro, injured arm and all, attempted to challenge Roman Reigns. However, Seth attacked him, driving his shoulder into the floor with a Curb Stomp. As if that wasn't enough, he hit another one on the ramp that bounced Cesaro's head off the steel. 

01:11 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Seth Rollins calls out Cesaro, demanding a fight from the Swiss Superman. However, Rollins "remembers" that he's not here, and decides to celebrate his birthday. 

01:10 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

I don't know whose kid taught WWE about the word "drip" but they need to have their phone taken away and placed in time out. 

01:09 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

01:09 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

By the way, Michael Cole accidentally called Bianca Belair "Belanca" and Bayley just tore into him for it. So uh, for that and many other reasons Bayley is my favorite of the Four Horsewomen. 

01:07 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

01:03 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Carmella earns several two-counts on the champ, but can't seem to put Belair away. Belair blocks the Code of Silence and counters another X-Factor with the KOD and the 1-2-3. 

Bianca Belair defeats Carmella via pinfall. 

Bayley stands on the announcer's desk, staring down the champ. 

01:02 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

00:59 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Bayley surprises Pat McAfee and Michael Cole, joining them at the table while Bianca Belair drives Carmella nearly through the ring post. Mella hits the tilt-a-whirl head scissors and sends the SmackDown Women's Champion to the floor. Belair responds with a massive shoulder block that nearly turns Carmella inside out. Belair tosses Mella through the ropes with a military press but is caught with a cheap shot from the inaugural Women's MITB winner. 

An X-Factor onto the apron earns Mella the two-count. 

00:56 (GMT)29 MAY 2021

Bianca Belair is in the ring ready for action. The SmackDown Women's Champion is facing off against former champion Carmella, who vows to ruin Belair's "happily ever after."

The Usos find Adam Pearce backstage and demand to face the winners of the tag title match next week. Jimmy and Jey are excited when Pearce accepts, though when Jimmy leaves, Jey hangs his head low. What's going on there?
