Welcome to Ringside News’ coverage of WWE Friday Night SmackDown on FOX. Please keep refreshing throughout the show for constant updates once it kicks off at 8:00 PM EST.
It’s the first SmackDown following the Royal Rumble event. Daniel Bryan was unable to topple The Fiend and The Big Dog reigned supreme over King Corbin, but not in the Royal Rumble match.
This week’s show will see Roman and The Usos vs Corbin, Dolph Ziggler, and Robert Roode. Those two are still not done with each other.
An IC Title match will take place as Shinsuke Nakamura battled Braun Strowman. New number one contenders will be determined in a four-corners match as well.
Sheamus and Shorty G are also set to do battle in a Royal Rumble kickoff show rematch.
Roman Reigns and The Usos came out. Roman said they’re gonna take care of The King and his little bitches and go on to WrestleMania. Then they came out and Corbin said “the feeling is mutual.”
Corbin said he would have defeated Roman at the Rumble if it wasn’t for The Usos. They’ll pay for what they did tonight in the six-man tag match.
Uce asked him what he’s so mad for. He said Corbin’s head is too big for his crown. Then they reminded him what was really going on. They had a Superman/Superkick party the last time they met “check, check, and check.” He said Corbin is a king in the wrong game because they’re playing chess and Corbin is playing checkers.
Corbin said they had a lot of time for board games when they were sitting at home after embarrassing their families. Then they showed the dog food eating segment again.
Roman asked if Corbin has a dog food fetish and called him “Fetish Boy.” He proposed that the loser of tonight’s match eat dog food. He called him Fetish Boy again and then Corbin accepted.
Then they brought out some dog food in buckets. It was all real.
Heavy Machinery vs Revival vs Lucha House Party vs Miz & Morrison
Wilder and Tucky started out the match. Tucker grabbed Wilder and held him before handing him off to Otis for a bearhug.
Gran Metalik tagged in and Morrison took a tag as well. Morrison dodged a flipping assault from Metalik and then Metalik hit a double spingboard headscissors takedown.
Lince Dorado hit a cross body block on Revival after they came in and then Lucha House Party kicked Heavy Machinery out of the ring. They caught Lince Dorado and drove him into the post.
Morrison climbed up top and nailed a spinning dive on Heavy Machinery. The Miz thought about diving, but Dawson took him out with a clothesline. Then Gran Metalik sent Tucker into everyone on the floor.
When we came back from commercial Otis took a hot tag and he rallied on Miz & Morrison. Then Morrison nailed him with a kick, but he absorbed it. Then he caught Morrison’s kick and threw him across the ring.
Miz & Morrison went down and Otis hit a double caterpillar for a two count. Tucker went over the top rope and Dawson took the tag. He almost got a pin on Otis and Metalik tagged in to hit a dive then Dorado hit a splash for a two count.

Otis sent Wilder over the top rope, but Dawson hit a DDT and Dorado hit a sunset flip, Dawson rolled through and Dorado hit two moonsaults. He went for a third, but Wilder crotched him on the ropes. Dawson hit a Superplex Wilder was tossed outside. Dawson got a near fall roll up.
Miz nailed a Skull Crushing Finale. Morrison hit Starship Pain 1-2-3 on Dawson.
Winners: Miz & Morrison
Heavy Machinery were backstage. They weren’t happy. Mandy and Sonya walked up and Mandy thanked him for his help in the Royal Rumble match. “You’re welcome, Mandy” he said.
Tucker said “now do the thing we talked about” they wanted to do what’s going on. Otis said he’s nervous. He likes Mandy and he asked her out next Friday. She has plans next Friday. She has no plans the following Friday. Okay. So it’s a date for Valentine’s Day.
Fire & Desire vs Bliss & Cross
They brawled from the beginning and Rose and Deville sent them out of the ring. Fire & Desire gained control on the outside and then sent Bliss back in.
Then the referee called for the bell to actually ring and start the match.
Deville took Bliss down with a headlock and then Bliss got separation, but Rose got the tag and isolated Bliss in the corner. Bliss hit right hands and tried to get to Cross, but Rose stopped her only to eat a turnbuckle by Bliss as she continued to crawl toward Nikki. She eventually got to her and then Cross went wild.
She got Mandy down and hit a dive, but Sonya nailed a running knee. Then Nikki nailed a neckbreaker and Bliss hit Twisted Bliss for the win.
Winners: Bliss & Cross
They’re the new number one contenders, maybe. Cole wasn’t sure, but he hinted at it.
