WWE Friday Night SmackDown Results – November 1, 2019
Before we start off with this week’s coverage of Smackdown, a big thank you to Dave Scherer for blogging the show live since I was not available to do the coverage as the show aired since I was at another show.
We are in Buffalo, New York and your announcers are Renee Young, Tom Phillips, and Aiden English.
Tom explains why the announce team is not your usual pairing of Michael Cole and Corey Graves.
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar makes his way to the ring with his advocate Paul Heyman.
Paul introduces himself and his client Brock Lesnar. Paul says he would like to shed the brightness of his brilliance on the darkness of your ignorance. The only way to describe his client’s mood tonight is to educate you on the fact that his client is really really pissed off tonight. Paul says you are thinking how could he feel after one of the most historic moments in combat sports history when his client conquered Cain Velasquez. Instead of talking about that fact, Paul presents this footage.
We see the match from Crown Jewel.
Paul says after nine long years of the indignity of having a scar etched into his face and soul by that butcher Cain Velasquez, he was able to gain revenge and vanquish Cain. After that victory, what happened? Then came your hero . . . Rey Mysterio.
Paul shows us the footage of what happened after the match.
Paul says we have a real problem going on here. Paul says his client went to Vince McMahon, the chairman of the board and owner of the company. Just like Rey Mysterio delivered Cain Velasquez as a sacrifice to Brock, they demanded Rey be handed up to Brock. Vince said no because Raw superstars are exclusive to USA and Smackdown superstars are exclusive to Fox. That is why Rey cannot be served up to Brock Lesnar. If Rey can’t come to Smackdown for Brock Lesnar, then as of this Monday, Brock Lesnar is going to come to Raw, looking for Rey Mysterio. If a network, chairman of the board, or WWE itself has a problem, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to fine or suspend Brock Lesnar? Are you going to seek litigation against Brock? Paul says his people invented litigation. Paul says Brock quits Smackdown and he will show up on Raw on Monday. He will be going hunting for Rey Mysterio. Paul tells Rey his life is in danger.
We see Brock and Paul walking in the back as they leave the building.
We see Triple H and Shawn Michaels looking at Paul and Brock leaving.
