WWE SmackDown Results | Friday, April 22, 2022

Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey Contract Signing

Charlotte was such a heel in this segment, not only did the fans chant “you tapped out” repeatedly, they refused to say “I quit” when Charlotte prompted them to.

Charlotte reminded Ronda Rousey time and again that she beat her at WrestleMania.

Fans have already taken to Drew Gulak as an interviewer. They even popped when he teased a PowerPoint presentation, which was ultimately shut down by Charlotte. For his troubles, Rousey made Gulak scream “I quit.”

Xavier Woods def. Butch

WWE Clearly has no ideas for any of the competitors involved in this match, as The New Day and The “Eastie Boys” are stuck in a post-WrestleMania quagmire. At least they’re on television, I guess.

For somebody who gets beat every week, SmackDown really seems like they’re doing something with Butch, who went missing once again.

Gunther def. Teddy Goodz

I love the name Teddy Goodz, WWE needs to come up with names like this for its main roster talent. I laughed every time the announce team called him Mr. Goodz.

This was a good showcase for Gunther, though he continues to come off as generic without the familiar music and silhouette entrance. Also, his chops are much more effective in smaller buildings where they bounce off the walls.

Gunther and Ludwig Kaiser were in lock-step when they performed a synchronized hands-behind-the-back pose.

Riddle def. Jey Uso

In a backstage segment, Randy Orton and Drew McIntyre buried the hatch after their pandemic feud, and McIntyre said “anybody who stands up to the Bloodline is good in my book.” McIntyre vs. Reigns seems like it’ll happen sooner rather than later, possibly even by WrestleMania Backlash.

Surprisingly, this wasn’t the main event. It even featured several reaction shots from Roman Reigns.

There was an obligatory 4:20 reference by Pat McAfee as Riddle began his comeback.

Naomi and Sasha Banks Appear Live

Naomi and Sasha Banks even coordinated their non-wrestling gear in matching one-piece outfits.

Due to process of elimination, Natalya and Shayna Baszler were almost locks to be the new No. 1 contenders.

Sasha Banks continues to do her heel laugh, even as a mega-babyface alongside Naomi.

Madcap Moss def. Angel

Happy Corbin asked Madcap Moss to come back, and Moss turned him down with a joke, which remain terrible.

This was mostly a showcase for Madcap Moss, who has a lot of fire and shows promise even though the reactions were not there tonight. He has to get out of this gimmick.

Happy Corbin showed some sense with the Andre the Giant trophy. Instead of destroying it, the way most heels have, Corbin “absconded” with the trophy.

Drew McIntyre def. Sami Zayn by Countout—Lumberjack Match

Roman Reigns said “take my name out they mouths” with a straight face and somehow managed to be convincing. His dry delivery made it hilarious.

This match was clearly being used to build up Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre.

After The Usos protected Roman Reigns by attacking RK-Bro, Sammy Zayn managed to escape. The finish was Adam Pearce announcing a Steel Cage Match next week. Unbelievable.
