14
episode
of
Friday
Night
Smackdown
that
took
place
at
the
CHI
Health
Center
in
Omaha,
Nebraska:


SmackDown
kicked
off
with
The
Usos
announcing
a
Fatal-4-Way
Match
to
determine
their
next
challengers
for
the
SmackDown
Tag
Team
Championships.


The
Viking
Raiders
(Erik

(Angel
and

Cesaro
&
Mansoor,
and
Jinder
Mahal
&

in

Fatal
4
Way
opening
Tag
Team
Match
to

the
new
Number-one

for
the
SmackDown
Tag
Team
Titles.

leveled

a
big

in
the
corner.

tagged
in
Erik
as
The
Viking
Raiders
caught
Humberto
with
The
Viking
Experience
in
the
middle
of
the
ring
for
the
pin
to
win.


Naomi
went
to
Sonya
Deville
and
questioned
her
vendetta
against
her.
Sonya
said
that
Naomi
is
just
an
extra
in
that
Women’s
locker
room.
She
also
threatened
to
fine
her,
fire
her,
or
remove
her
from
the
Women’s
Royal
Rumble
match.


Sami
Zayn
declared
his
entry
into
the
Men’s
Royal
Rumble
2022
Match.
Sami
wanted
to
prove
that
he
could
do
better
stunts
than
Johnny
Knoxville.
Sami
got
scared
out
while
actually
doing
a
stunt
around
the
ring.

Intercontinental
Champion
Shinsuke
Nakamura
and
Rick
Boogs
came
out
to
distract
Sami.
Eventually,
Nakamura
took
Sami
out
with
the
Kinshasa
kick
for
a
big
pop.


Alyah
defeated
Natalya
in
her
singles
debut
with
a
roll-up
in
just
3.17
seconds.
This
makes
Aliyah
score
the
fastest
pin-fall
victory
in
WWE
history.
This
also
appeared
to
be
the
shortest
match
ever
in
the
company’s
history.


WWE
Hall
Of
Famer
Lita
returned
to
announce
that
she
has
one
run
left
in
her
and
hence
she
wants
to
win
the
2022
Women’s
Royal
Rumble
match,
and
go
on
to
challenge
for
a
Title
at
WrestleMania
38.

SmackDown
Women’s
Champion
Charlotte
Flair
interrupted
and
doubted
how
Lita
would
deal
with
the
humiliation
after
she
loses
to
her
at
the
Royal
Rumble.

Lita
disagreed
but
Charlotte
pointed
out
that
she
already
defeated
Lita’s
best
friend
Trish
Stratus
and
retired
her.
Flair
claimed
she
will
do
the
same
to
her.
She
tried
to
slap
Lita,
but
Lita
planted
her
with
a
Twist
of
Fate.


Sheamus
defeated
Ricochet
in
a
singles
contest.
Ricochet
blocked
an
Alabama
slam
and
tangled
with
his
opponent.
Sheamus
ran
back
in
with
a
Brogue
Kick
out
of
nowhere
for
the
pin
to
win.


In
another
backstage
segment
with
Adam
Peace
and
Sonya
Deville,
Naomi
said
that
she
would’ve
defeated
Charlotte
Flair
last
week
if
it
wasn’t
for
Sonya’s
distractions.
Pearce
then
ordered
Naomi
a
rematch
against
Charlotte,
next
week.


Kofi
Kingston
appeared
in
the
ring
and
declared
that
his
New
Day
buddy
King
Xavier
Woods
is
injured
and
will
miss
the
Royal
Rumble,
but
Kofi
will
enter
the
match.
Happy
Corbin
and
Madcap
Moss
interrupted.
Corbin
declared
his
entry
and
promised
to
eliminate
Kofi
from
The
Rumble.


In
the
next
match,
Madcap
Moss
defeated
Kofi
Kingston.
Kofi
went
for
the
SOS
but
Moss
blocked
it
and
then
flattened
him
with
The
Punchline
finisher
for
the
pin
to
win.


In
the
main
event
segment,
Universal
Champion
Roman
Reigns
and
Seth
Rollins
came
face
to
face.
Rollins
wanted
to
do
a
Shield
fist-bump
but
Roman
declined
since
it’s
beneath
him.

Roman
claimed
that
he’s
the
greatest
Universal
Champion.
But
Rollins
said
he
has
to
carry
Roman
in
their
Shield
days.
Rollins
also
claimed
that
he
created
Roman
and
can
destroy
him.

Roman
said
how
Rollins
has
become
a
clown
and
if
it
was
up
to
Roman
then
he
would
rather
be
facing
Rollins’
wife,
Becky
Lynch
at
the
Royal
Rumble.

The
Usos
suddenly
tried
to
attack
Rollins
from
behind
but
he
retreated
to
the
floor.
The
Usos
then
wanted
to
attack
Rollins
on
the
floor
but
he
sent
one
of
them
into
the
steel
ring
steps
to
escape
through
the
ramp.
Rollins
kept
on
ranting
about
Roman
as
the
show
went
off
the
air.
