On the latest Friday night SmackDown, there were five matches on the match card. Let us check out the WWE SmackDown 15th Jan 2021 result full match card, results, and highlights.
1.Jey Uso vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
On the last episode of SmackDown, Nakamura earned three consecutive victories in the Gauntlet Match. The match was to determine who will be facing The Big Dog at the upcoming PPV of WWE. In the Gauntlet Match, Nakamura got attacked by Roman Reigns, and Jey Uso took away his chance to win the match and face The Big Dog at Royal Rumble 2021.
To take revenge, The King of Strong Style decided to face Jey Uso in a one on one match at SmackDown’s opening contest.
Before the match began, Uso praised Roman Reigns and confirmed his entry for the Royal Rumble 2021 match. To respond to Uso, Nakamura began to do some of his name-callings and hit Uso with a kick.
Accidentally Nakamura hits a headfirst, and Uso took full advantage without wasting time and went for a pin attempt. Uso moved his legs on the ropes, but the WWE officials spotted it and did not give him the three count.
Uso was furious and began to argue with the referee; Nakamura used the opportunity by taking control of the match and winning the game by hitting a Kinshasa.
Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura
2.Liv Morgan vs Natalya
Billie Kay had become a member of the Riott Squad, however, an unofficial one. Billie showed up with the Riott Squad and joined the commentator’s team.
Natalya showed good strength in the beginning, and she was taunting Liv.
Morgan got driven into turnbuckles. The moment Natalya was to receive the pin, she got rolled up by Liv.
At the ringside, Tamina was present, and Billie joined her. There was a distraction, and Natalya used the opportunity to win the match and rolled up Morgan.
3.King Corbin vs. Rey Mysterio
It has been weeks since King Corbin has been troubling the Mysterio family. The attacks include a brutal attack by King Corbin in the Gauntlet match.
This week King Corbin faced Rey Mysterio in a one-on-one game. In the commentary, we had Dominik Mysterio.
During the match, Corbin put his hands-on Dom many times; Rey was furious and came to take charge inside the ring. Rey Mysterio was forced to hold back Dom, and there was a distraction, and it gave King Corbin a chance to win the match with the End of Days.
Winner: King Corbin
4.Daniel Bryan vs. Cesaro
Cesaro was angry as Daniel Bryan unintentionally gave credit to Shinsuke Nakamura. Both the competitors had a face-off after that.
Cesaro countered a running knee by Bryan in the last moments of the match. Cesaro countered the move with an earth-shattering uppercut into the Neutralizer for earning a big win on the show.
5.Sami Zayn vs. Apollo Crews
Last week Big E defended his title successfully against Apollo Crews, and today he joined the commentator’s team for watching Apollo’s face off with Sami Zayn.
Right off the bat, Crews unloaded on Zayn. Apollo got tossed outside the ring by Sami. Off the commentator’s desk, Apollo hits a moonsault.
Inside the ring, Zayn attempted for an elbow drop and received a near fall. Apollo returned and hit a snap German Suplex.
After arguing with the referee, Sami received an exploded suplex. Crew got hold of Sami with a rollup and few tights to receive the pin. Apollo Crews wins the match.
Winner: Apollo Crews
During the show, The Big Dog and Paul Heyman made some changes in the contract of Roman Reigns match against Adam Pearce at Royal Rumble 2021. Roman demanded that Adam Pearce should sign the contract by the end of the night.
When Adam showed up, he began to limp because of an old knee injury. Adam could not face The Head of the Table because of the injury. As one member of the main event is injured, WWE has the flexibility to pick up a replacement, and Adam announced his replacement. So guys, now we have a new opponent for Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship match, and he is Kevin Owens.
3 Top Predictions For WWE SmackDown 22nd Jan 2021
1.Big E vs. Apollo Crews might end up in disqualification.
For the upcoming episode of SmackDown, WWE has already confirmed Apollo Crews vs. Big E. We think the match might not have a justified ending. We can say this because Big E won’t be losing his title so quickly, and also, there are fewer chances that Apollo Crews get a clean win on the game. Therefore we have a strong feeling that the match might result in disqualification at the end.
2.For Royal Rumble 2021 men’s match, Seth Rollins might confirm his entry.
Seth Rollins is among the top contender capable of winning it all. We think Seth Rollins might announce his entry for the Royal Rumble 2021 in the next episode of SmackDown.
3.The match card might have a tag team match Jey Uso and Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens and Shinsuke Nakamura.
In today’s episode, we got confirmation that at Royal Rumble 2021, Kevin Owens will be facing Roman Reigns, and it will last man standing match for WWE Universal Championship. For building more storyline between both of them, WWE might plan a tag team match in the next Friday night SmackDown.
