WOMEN’S DUSTY CUP SEMI-FINALS MATCH
DAKOTA KAI & RAQUEL GONZALEZ vs. KACY CATANZARO & KAYDEN CARTER

Dakota Kai starts out dropping Kacy Catanzaro to the mat straight away, showing her strength advantage, and she then places her to the top rope, but Catanzaro is able to take her down as Kayden Carter tags in. The babyface hit a flurry of quick kicks, but Dakota responds with a backbreaker as Raquel Gonzalez tags in.

She talks trash which allows Kayden to attack, but it leads to all four women ending up in the ring as the babyfaces get the best of the situation once again. Kayden goads Gonzalez out of the ring and as they get back in she hits a springboard into the dropkick.

However, as Kacy tags in and looks to dive onto Gonzalez, she just catches her and dumps Kacy back into the ring. Dakota Kai then tags in and gets dropped onto Kacy by her partner with a stomp. Dakota follows it with another great kick, but Catanzaro keeps kicking out.

Kai then knocks Kayden off the ring apron but after a great double team Kacy makes a tag. Carter hits the ring connecting with a couple of dropkicks and she then sends Dakota into her own partner as well. Carter then hits a dropkick to Raquel in the corner, following onto Kai with a splash in the aftermath.

Kai then eats a sharp kick while Carter is on the ring apron, but Raquel then smashes her off, sending Kayden crashing into the announce table. Dakota returns to the action, but Carter is able to make a tag and Catanzaro comes flying in with an attack in the corner.

Kacy then flips over, hitting a kick upon the landing. It sends her opponents to the outside and she then climbs the steel structure, diving down to hit both of them with a crossbody! Carter comes back in but Dakota takes them both out with some kicks.

Gonzalez then tags in and she throws Carter into the air as Dakota catches her with a peel kick in mid-air, but Kacy breaks up the pinning attempt. Carter then attempts a sleeper hold, but Raquel breaks out only to get hung up on the second rope, with Kacy following up with a dropkick on the second rope.

Catanzaro then heads to the top rope and she lands her incredible finisher, but Dakota tries to break it up, but she doesn’t quite make it in time so Gonzalez kicks out. Dakota then sends Kayden crashing into the barricade and this allows Gonzalez to plant Kacy to the mat to end this one.

Winners: Raquel Gonazlez & Dakota Kai

TONI STORM INTERVIEW

Toni Storm is shown backstage where it is revealed at NXT Takeover she will challenge for the NXT Women’s Championship in a triple threat against Io Shirai and Mercedes Martinez. Toni says Io Shirai has been untouchable to anybody who isn’t called Toni Storm. She says last week was a preview, and neither Io nor Mercedes can stop her.

LEON RUFF vs. AUSTIN THEORY w/JOHNNY GARGANO

Leon Ruff starts out using his speed to avoid Austin Theory several times, catching him with a dropkick and then another strike to the face. However, as Ruff goes charging in again, Theory trips him into the second turnbuckle and from there Theory begins to dominate.

Theory hits an excellent snap suplex, but Ruff is able to kick out. Leon finds a way to fight back though, hitting several forearms in a row. Ruff then kicks away the knee and follows up with a running knee strike. Ruff then gets distracted by Gargano, who eats a kick to the face as Ruff hits a missile dropkick to Austin.

However again Gargano provides a distraction, and Ruff and Theory then have the same idea and they collide and knock each other down. The rest of The Way comes to check on Gargano, but their Dusty Cup opponents come out and attack them.

Ruff then takes a page out of Eddie Guerrero’s playbook and pretends to be hit, selling it so Gargano is sent to the back. Back in the ring, Ruff hits an excellent flying Cutter, but Theory gets his leg on the ropes. Ruff then dives to the outside but Theory catches him and drops Leon ribs-first onto the barricade. In the ring, Theory hits the ATL and wins.

Winner: Austin Theory

After the match, Theory hits the move once again and he then looks to get the ring bell to attack him. However, Dexter Lumis is there to stop him, and he tries to lock in his submission finisher, The Silence. Theory wriggles away, but Lumis manages to pull a chunk of Austin’s hair out in the process.

WWE Smackdown Results: Daniel Bryan vs Jey Uso In A Steel Cage Match

Welcome to our live coverage of WWE Friday Night Smackdown on FOX!

WWE Smackdown Results
March 5, 2021


* * *

Michael Cole welcomed Daniel Bryan to the ring to kick off the show. Bryan acknowledged that Edge vs Roman Reigns is the dream match everyone wants to see in the main event at WrestleMania 37. He talked about rolling out of the ring at the Elimination Chamber feeling like a failure, watching Edge spear the champion and point to the WrestleMania sign. Bryan admitted that he’s been putting his own career on the backburner for the sake of giving back to the younger stars who are ready and deserve his spot. But he’s wrestled more in the last three weeks than Reigns or Edge have in the last three months, and promises to be the one who ruins everyone’s WrestleMania dream match.

Roman Reigns came out with his entourage and mocked Bryan for finally finding his ambition again. He claimed that Bryan doesn’t really love wrestling anymore, so much as he needs it. Reigns said that Bryan needs him at the Head of the Table just like everyone else in WWE. Jey Uso took the mic and told Bryan that he wasn’t walking out of the Steel Cage tonight. He didn’t lock Roman out of the cage, he locked himself inside with a pitbull. Uso took a shot at him, but Bryan easily sent him over the top rope like a chump and stared down the champion.

King Corbin def. Montez Ford

This was supposed to be a tag team match but Corbin refused because he’s a singles star, and demanded a singles match against either member of the Street Profits. Corbin won a short but solid match with the End of Days after Sami Zayn caused a distraction outside the ring. Zayn demanded that he return the favor in his match, but Corbin refused and stormed off.

Angelo Dawkins def. Sami Zayn

Another short but solid match with a distraction finish. Zayn had it won after an Exploder Suplex into the corner and lined up for the Helluva Kick, but noticed Montez Ford yelling at the documentary crew outside the ring. Dawkins rolled him up for the win. Zayn screamed at the doc crew and lost his mind after the match, choking out one of the camera guys and demanding to know who hired him and if he was with “the company”.

Reginald tried to give Carmella a bottle of champaign backstage, but she called him a snake and knocked the bottle out of his hands. Carmella called Reginald out for his obsession with Sasha Banks and fired him!

Dominik Mysterio def. Chad Gable

Dominik once again looked really good working through the basics here, and Gable being Gable was able to handle more of the technical stuff and make it look good. Commentary played up that Dominik was going to be a big star in the future but he was still just starting out and Gable was at the peak of his ability. Then Dom dodged a moonsault and rolled him up to win. Rey Mysterio immediately took to the apron and dove onto Otis, taking him over the announce table.

Ilja Dragunov def. Sam Gradwell

Gradwell was all trash talk from the start and Dragunov completely ignored it, taking him to the mat over and over. Dragunov connected with knee strikes and heavy elbows, and when Gradwell continued to taunt him, a stiff boot to the face. Gradwell caught him in the ropes and set in with kicks to the back of the neck and side of the head. Double underhook suplex. Clubbing blows to the back. Dragunov roared back, literally, with wild elbow strikes and slaps upside the head while maintaining wrist control. Gradwell gave them right back, but got caught with two German suplexes. Dragunov hit a sky high diving senton for a nearfall. He started pummelling the man with nasty elbows until the referee called for the bell.

Dragunov completely snapped after the match, putting Gradwell back in a submission and continuing to beat the hell out of him. Referees pulled him off, but he backed one into the corner and tore at his shirt, screaming in his face until “snapping out of it”. Dragunov tried to apologize to the refs and left freaking out while Gradwell looked on smiling and laughing.

Teoman is coming next week:

Supernova Sessions

Noam Dar read “reviews” from fans talking about how great he is. He invited Tyler Bate onto the show as his special guest, leading to an awkward conversation about zen. Bate discussed his vegetarian lifestyle and Dar dumped a bunch of broccoli and spinach on him, which he thought was hilarious for some reason. I think the intention was to do some kind of Tim & Eric or Between Two Ferns ironic comedy sort of thing, but it didn’t connect for me at all.

Ben Carter vignette talking about his career starting in the U.S. and having to learn the British style.

Isla Dawn vignette, doing some neat occult stuff.

Amir Jordan & Kenny Williams def. Ashton Smith & Oliver Carter

Great fast-paced exchange between Williams and Carter trading pinning combinations and looking for submissions. Smith tagged in and tossed Williams around the ring with ease. Jordan came in and caught him with a few dropkicks, and took the big man down with a flying crossbody from the second rope. He slapped on a side headlock, but Smith easily tossed him into the corner and took turns with his partner clobbering him with clotheslines and heavy body shots. Williams eventually got the hot tag and cleaned house, sending them both to the floor. Jordan and Williams hit stereo suicide dives and a wheelbarrow facebuster/diving senton combo for a very close nearfall. Both teams traded offense but Jordan ended up getting a pin on Oliver Carter with an assist from his partner at ringside.

NXT UK Women’s Championship Match
Kay Lee Ray (c) def. Meiko Satomura

Kay Lee tried to lock up right away and Meiko easily out-grappled her and sent the champion out to the floor. Kay Lee took it personally and went after her with stiff kicks and elbows in the corner. Meiko fired back with body kicks and a spin kick, catching her under the jaw, before locking in an STF. Kay Lee dragged them both across the ring to get to the ropes, and Meiko continued pelting her with kicks all over the body. The champion caught her with a Koji Clutch out of nowhere to turn the tide. Kay Lee transitioned into a body stretch and slowed things down for a beat. She made the mistake of trying to trade kicks with the Japanese legend and got destroyed by a spinning wheel kick and a half dozen more kicks in the corner. Kay Lee rolled out to the floor and baited the challenger into a Hangman’s DDT from the apron. She broke the ref’s count in order to set up for a Gory Bomb on the apron, but Meiko struggled free and hit a Death Valley Driver! This time it was Kay Lee barely making it back into the ring on time. Meiko drilled her in the head with a running knee and walked circles around her, looking for the killing blow. Brainbuster for 1… 2… no. Meiko put her on the second turnbuckle, but Kay Lee surprised her with a Tornado DDT and immediately reapplied the Koji Clutch. Meiko nearly faded but started flailing around with her legs until reaching the bottom rope. Kay Lee climbed to the top rope but Meiko hit her with a bicycle kick to knock her down! Death Valley Driver for 1… 2… still no. This time Meiko climbed the ropes, dropped the champion with a kick to the head, but Kay Lee got her knees up to block a diving splash. Superkick. Gory Bomb. 1… 2… no. A frustrated Kay Lee tried and failed to lift the dead weight of her opponent for another Gory Bomb, so she instead climbed the ropes, taking far too long. Meiko dodges a Swanton Bomb, tried for the Scorpion Kick, Kay Lee blocked it, went for the Gory Bomb, but Meiko countered with Code Blue! Superkick from the champion! Bicycle kick from the challenger! Both women down. Kay Lee definitely pulls her up and delivers one final Gory Bomb to get the job done.

This was a tremendous match, maybe ****1/4 that I can only imagine would have been one of the better WWE matches in many, many years with a building full of rowdy UK fans.
