 #Friday Night Smackdown 11/19/2021: Tribal Chief vs King Woods

Hartford, CT

The Survivor Series go-home edition of WWE SmackDown on FOX opens up live from the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut as Michael Cole welcomes us. He’s joined at ringside by Pat McAfee. We see what happened last week with King Xavier Woods and WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. We go right to the ring and SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos are out – Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso. There’s a throne fit for a king in the middle of the ring, and what looks like a velvet ring apron cover. There’s also the crown, scepter and robe worn by King Xavier Woods. The Usos give a grand royal introduction for WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and then bring him out. The music hits and out comes Reigns with Paul Heyman.

Reigns stops and stand tall at the entrance-way, raising his finger in the air as the pyro explodes. Heyman and Reigns march to the ring now as Heyman raises the strap in the air. Cole and McAfee hype the non-title champion vs. champion match between Reigns and WWE Champion Big E at Sunday’s Survivor Series pay-per-view. They also hype The Usos vs. RAW Tag Team Champions R-K-Bro on Sunday. Reigns poses in the ring as The Bloodline raises their titles in the air, and more pyro goes off.

Heyman takes the mic and says he’s so overcome with emotion he’s fumbling mics. He tells Reigns this has been in the works for him all week. Heyman says no one in the history of WWE has deserved to be crowned King as much as The Head of The Table, The Tribal Chief, The Tribal King, Roman Reigns. Heyman says he knows in his heart, a little out of character, that everyone here tonight will agree that the distinction of King certainly doesn’t belong to Woods. Fans boo. Heyman says and it sure as hell won’t ever belong to Brock Lesnar. Fans boo again. Heyman says it also won’t belong to someone like Big E, who will be smashed by Reigns this Sunday. Reigns takes the mic from Heyman to interrupt. Heyman goes on praising Reigns. Reigns asks whose idea was this. Heyman points at The Usos. Reigns says this must be a joke, right? Reigns says they don’t really think he cares about or needs this stuff. He doesn’t need this to be acknowledged, he puts in the hard work and earned the respect. Reigns tells Hartford to acknowledge him and they respond with a loud but mixed reaction. Reigns says the only reason he took the crown last week is because he can. The music interrupts and out comes Woods.

Woods says those items in the ring are his possession, but they do not make a true king. Woods says what makes a king is knowing that you’re doing good for the WWE Universe. Woods says if Reigns was a king for what he did last week, he’d face Woods like a man and settled this man-to-man with Woods. Woods challenges Reigns to settle this like a man, without his goons, so he can show Reigns what a real king is made of. Reigns can’t believe Woods doesn’t care about his stuff, and that it means nothing to him. Reigns instructs Jey to throw the robe down, and Reigns steps on him. Reigns taunts Woods, who says the clothes don’t make a man.. Reigns orders Jey to snap the scepter in two now. Fans boo. Reigns asks Woods if he’s sure. Reigns orders The Usos to slam the throne down and destroy it now. They toss it to the floor and Reigns laughs at Woods, taunting him for looking unhappy.

Woods seethes on the ramp now. They go to destroy the crown now but Reigns asks for it. Reigns holds the crown up and asks Woods one more time if he’s sure it means nothing to him. Reigns puts the crown down on the mat and teases a stomp, but Woods rushes the ring and gets beat down by The Usos. Reigns never stomped on the crown. Woods is double teamed in the corner now. They hold Woods down as Reigns taunts him, saying he’s the only King around here who doesn’t need props because he’s the one. Reigns stomps the crown and destroys it as Woods yells out. They put Woods back down and fans boo. The Bloodline stands tall over Woods now as the music starts up and fans keep booing.

The Bloodline is backstage in their locker room suite. Roman Reigns asks Paul Heyman if it’s time, and it is time. They get up to leave but Reigns tells The Usos that he’s going to do this one by himself. The confrontation between Reigns and King Woods is next. Back to commercial.

We go back to the ring and out comes King Xavier Woods. Fans cheer him on as he heads to the ring and we go back to commercial.

Back from the break and Woods is in the ring with a mic. Woods calls out WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, and gets a pop for shouting-out Hartford. Woods says he’s here to find out if Reigns is a man. Woods recalls how he hit his big elbow drop on Reigns last week, but then SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos showed up and the match ended in a No Contest. Woods says that means The Tribal Chief cannot beat Woods on his own. Woods says if that makes Reigns feel some kind of way, bring your ass to the ring and prove him wrong. Reigns waits as fans cheer him on. The music hits and out comes Reigns with Paul Heyman.

Reigns stops and poses on the entrance-way with Heyman as Woods looks on from the ring. We suddenly see one of The Usos get thrown out from backstage, onto the stage. The other Uso is then tossed out but we can’t see who took them out. Woods smirks in the ring and stands with his arms crossed. The music hits and out comes WWE Champion Big E to a pop. Reigns meets Big E on the ramp and they start brawling.

Big E sends Reigns into the steel ring steps, then the barrier. Big E tosses Reigns into the ring where Woods is waiting. Woods stomps on Reigns as fans pop. The New Day stomps away on Reigns now to keep him down in the middle of the ring. The Usos hit the ring but Big E nails a Big Ending to one, and Woods rocks the other with a big boot. Big E with another Big Ending to the other Uso. Fans pop for Big E and Woods as they stand tall. Woods runs the ropes and leaps out to the floor, taking The Usos down at ringside. Big E turns around to a big Superman Punch from Reigns in the middle of the ring. Reigns waits in the corner now as some fans boo and some cheer.

Reigns charges with a Spear but Big E scoops him for the Big Ending. Reigns slides out of the move and retreats to the floor. Reigns yells out while backing up the ramp. Heyman is right behind him with the title. Big E’s music hits again as he stands tall in the ring, raising the strap in the air. Cole hypes the non-title champion vs. champion match between Reigns and Big E at Sunday’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view. We go to replays of what just went down. Big E raises the title and continues to talk trash from the ring while Reigns clutches his title on his shoulder, talking trash back at Big E from the stage. The Survivor Series go-home edition of SmackDown goes off the air.
