WWE SmackDown Winners and Grades

The Bloodline Kicks Off SmackDown

Roman Reigns told Jey Uso that if Reigns loses, he’s still Roman Reigns. If Jey Uso loses, he loses everything.

WWE may have done too good of a job booking SummerSlam, because it appears as if they peaked the card early. There were no major storyline developments coming out of this segment, and I can’t imagine there will be during the go-home show next week.

Bloodline Opening Segment Grade: C+

Santos Escobar Def. Rey Mysterio

Santos and Rey Mysterio were on their way to having a very good match, but during the break, Mysterio suffered an injury during a dive. Referee Jessika Carr called the match off, and while it appeared legit at first, the segment seemed faker as it went on. Per WRKD, the injury is part of a storyline.

Santos Escobar vs. Rey Mysterio Grade: B

LA Knight Def. Ashante Adonis

In an interesting choice of words, LA Knight said “a lot of people claim to be undeniable.”

This match felt like a make-good to WWE fans for keeping LA Knight out of yet another Big 4 pay-per-view.

Poor Hit Row seem to be the only people WWE lets LA Knight beat.

Backstage, LA Knight lobbied to be in the SummerSlam Battle Royal, and if he doesn’t win it so help me God.

LA Knight vs. Ashante Adonis Grade: B-

Flair and Belair Def. Green and Deville

Backstage, Bobby Lashley upgraded the Street Profits’ wardrobe and even said Trick Williams and Carmelo Hayes spoke highly of the Profits. To my knowledge, Trick and Melo have never crossed paths with the Street Profits. Are we just supposed to assume they know each other because they’re black?

Flair and Belair found themselves in a good-old fashioned “can they co-exist” storyline, and the answer was “yes, but not without tension.”

Charlotte scored the winning pinfall in this non-title match, much to the chagrin of Bianca Belair. WWE continues to do a number on these women’s tag team titles, which just changed hands a couple of short weeks ago and the new champions are already cannon fodder.

Flair and Belair vs. Green and Deville Grade: B-

Karrion Kross Def. Karl Anderson

This was the most dominant Karrion Kross has looked since his days in NXTXT.

Karrion Kross’ new finisher, named the Final Prayer, is a pumphandle slam into a powerslam, into a DDT. Kross screamed AJ Styles’ name before delivering the move.

Kross vs. Anderson Grade: C+

Jey Uso Vs. Grayson Waller

Michael Cole mentioned how Grayson Waller is launching the legend rehabilitation program for legends like John Cena and The Rock to understand social media.

Fans were pretty quiet during the early goings of this match.

Jimmy Uso was mentioned multiple times throughout this broadcast. I fully expect Jimmy to show up.

Grayson Waller continued trolling The Rock with an attempt at a People’s Elbow. Roman Reigns, who sat ringside, was more than amused.

Jey Uso won with a Spear and then an Uso Splash. Grayson Waller continues to pay his dues on the way in. It’s a reverse Goldberg.

Jey hit a Spear and splash on Roman Reigns before getting laid out by Solo Sikoa. Reigns finished Uso off with the combination spear and thumb strike.

Fans chanted “you got pinned” at Roman Reigns, only for Reigns and Solo to hit their double-team finisher yet again.

Main Event Grade: B-
