WWE SmackDown Live Results 21st November 2017, Latest SmackDown Live winners and video highlights
Did SmackDown manage to outdo Raw this week?
WWE left no stone unturned in making the Raw after Survivor Series a memorable fallout show with the return of Paige, two main roster debuts in Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose and the unexpected crowning of Roman Reigns as the new Intercontinental Champion.
The spotlight was no on SmackDown to deliver the goods as their next PPV, Clash of Champions approaches closer. So did team blue live to the hype? They tried to emulate their counterparts in red, almost identical at times, in a show that saw debuts, a title match and a much-anticipated return.
So without further delay, let's delve into this week's results and highlights:
The lone survivor for team SmackDown, Shane Mcmahon opened this week's show to address the events from Survivor Series. The commissioner welcomed the fans in Houston and spoke about how close they were to winning the battle for brand supremacy.
He said that the brand proved, even in defeat, that it is the real a show. He praised the roster for bringing it to the Survivor Series and said that the stars do what they do in the ring with pride and for the fans. He singled out Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn for being disloyal to their brand and called the best friends out.
Zayn and KO didn't look intimidated by Shane O'Mac as they made their way to the ring. KO took the mic and asks which version of Shane were they in for today -- the death-defying Super Shane or the authority figure that is out to screw the duo.
Zayn demanded Shane to man up and apologise for his wrongdoings. Owens claimed that McMahon had made a fatal error by leaving them out of team blue's star-studded team. They boldly claimed that they would have beaten the entire Raw team by themselves and also Brock Lesnar if need be.
Shane reminds KO that he was speaking to the commissioner and wanted nothing but respect for himself and the talents backstage. He teased firing KO and Zayn before Owens cut him off by saying that they can't be fired as everyone in the business adores them. Zayn said that he was in the presence of two future WWE Hall of Famers.
Shane branded Owens and Zayn as delusional for thinking they were the top two stars of the WWE. He said that they were living under a rock as the locker room doesn't like the two and completely hate their guts. Just when he was about to say those two magic words made famous by his father, Daniel Bryan interrupted the proceedings.
Zayn seemed ecstatic at the sight of Bryan and began to praise the SmackDown GM. The pretentious words were cut short by Bryan, who said that the New Day was annoyed by being left high and dry by the duo on the go-home episode of SmackDown for Survivor Series.
Zayn tried to interrupt again and Bryan replied with an over-enthusiastic 'shut up'. He announced that the hated duo will face the New Day in a Lumberjack match tonight, with the entire roster surrounding the ring.
