WWE SmackDown Results – January 10, 2019
We are in Evansville, Indiana and your announcers are Michael Cole and Corey Graves.
We begin with MizTV.
Miz welcomes everyone and he says since last Friday and the incident with Kofi, people says he has changed. MIz says he was having a bad day. Kofi came up with all of his positivity and tried to cheer him up, but there are times when you don’t want to smile. Miz says he let his emotions get the best of him. Miz tells Kofi that he is sorry for what he did last week. Miz says he has been going through a lot this month. The Fiend threatened his 18 month old daughter. Miz was unable to take the title from The Fiend. He is happy that a man who he considers to be like a brother is back.
Miz brings out John Morrison.
Miz welcomes John back and Miz says this is truly AWESOME. The greatest tag team of the 21st Century is together in the ring. Miz says if you forgot about what John can do, he has a sizzle reel.
John says he doesn’t know what to say. They were filming a documentary about his return. He says his return at the Royal Rumble was going to be epic, but he saw what Miz was going through and he felt that it was more important to be there for one of your best friends. John says he is disappointed in you guys. His friend has one bad day and you chant ‘You Suck’ at him? Miz has worked harder for 15 years than anyone else on the roster. No one thought he would make it as a WWE Superstar, but he became a champion. You guys ignore all of Miz’ hard work. You don’t get it. Miz doesn’t do it for his dad or for himself. He does it for all of you. You have never been in the ring.
The New Day interrupt John running down the people in the crowd.
Kofi tells Miz he has a question for him. Who are you trying to fool? Are you trying to blame the WWE Universe for turning their backs on you? Big E says they don’t buy Miz’ apology because he isn’t that good of an actor. He couldn’t even get a part as the back of a human centipede.
Kofi says he would have respected Miz more if he just said he had a bad day. All of us have had bad days. That would have be respectible.
Miz says he repsects that Kofi was WWE Champion for six months. Miz says he respects the six seconds it took you to lose it. He respects the fact that you smile instead of going back after that WWE Championship.
Kofi points out it was 8 seconds. It is clear to him that Miz is changing. Based on what you are saying to the fans and what they said last week, Miz is turning from Cool Miz to Annoying and Obnoxious Miz. The people are 100% correct when they say ‘You Suck’.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.
Roman says 2019 was a blessed year. It ended a bit rough. If you see Smackdown each week, you know the deal. He has been outnumbered, he has been jumped, he has been embarrassed by Corbin and his crew. Throughout his career, he has always had backup. This time, I didn’t need the help of friends. This time, I needed the help of my family. Last week, his family came out to help him in a major way. He says 2020 is his year. He will win the Royal Rumble and he will main event Wrestlemania for the fifth time. He will do it with the ones who have been by his side since Day One, The Usos.
Jimmy says it feels good to be back on the blue brand. They are about to turn Friday NIght Smackdown into Friday Night Lockdown. Jey says it has been real rough the last five months. It has been rough watching the Big Dog fight against Queen Corbin and his Court. When you did what you did with the dog food, you disrepsected Roman. Now you have disrespected the whole family.
Baron Corbin asks if Roman is going to do this by pawning off the beating he deserves on his family. Now you are going to throw your family under the bus because the Big Dog is scared. You are scared to face him one on one and go into the Royal Rumble Match. If anyone is winning the Royal Rumble match, it will be him.
Roman laughs at the idea of being scared of Baron. He would love to whoop Baron’s ass twice in one night. They can go one on one and then he can throw Baron’s ass over the top rope and when he points at the sign, you will know who the man is.
Baron accepts the match. He says Roman won’t have any family to celebrate with at the Royal Rumble because he will take care of Roman’s two little bitches.
