The LWO Segment 

Rey Mysterio: Columbus, Ohio. Welcome to Friday Night SmackDown. Let’s cut to the chase. Last Saturday at Crown Jewel, I put my United States Title on the line against Logan Paul. As you can see, Logan stole my title. Now, we all know the referee’s decision is final. But I truly believe that Logan couldn’t beat me if it wasn’t for those brass knuckles. Without those brass knuckles, I would be standing right here, still as the United States Champion. So, I promise I will do whatever I can to get a rematch with Logan Paul.

Carlito: Rey, nobody wants to see you as the United States Champion more than Carlito. But seriously, we’re not going to talk about Crown Jewel? Well, Carlito wants to talk about it. You’re blaming the wrong person, Rey, Rey. Don’t blame Logan. Blame the person that left the brass knuckles on the apron for him, Santos Escobar.

Santos leaves the ringside area in a fit of rage.

Damage CTRL, Bianca BelAir, Charlotte Flair and Asuka Segment 

Bayley: We all saw what just happened. Now, I’ve had a plan and vision for Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai ever since the inception of Damage CTRL. Everything I wanted to become true, became true. WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. Ms. Money In The Bank. And WWE Women’s Champion. Iyo Sky has defeated the best in the business. Charlotte Flair. Asuka. Bianca BelAir. And obviously it’s Iyo’s era, all because of my plan. I said, all thanks to my plan. Good job, clap for yourselves, idiots. Moving on, Crown Jewel should have been Damage CTRL’s proudest moment. But instead, I said, what, just like all of you at the return of Kairi Sane. And it’s not how Damage CTRL handles things, so Iyo, if could please do me the honor and come out here so we could talk like adults. What is she even doing out here? And what was she doing at Crown Jewel? Iyo, you know I had a plan for that night, and we always have a plan.

Iyo Sky: Hey, Bayley, I had a plan, too. It’s Iyo’s era, right? I have to thank Kairi for helping me retain the title. Isn’t that what you wanted?

Bayley: Yes, that’s what I wanted, that’s what I wanted for the both of you. But the last time we saw Kairi in WWE, I mean, this happened. So, after watching that back, you could understand my concern with having Kairi around. Look, what’s going on? I’ve been here long enough; I know how things work around here. I know how alliance’s work.

Dakota Kai: Bayley, hold on for a second. Look, we didn’t bring Kairi into Damage CTRL to hurt you, that was never the plan in the first place. We brought her here to make Damage CTRL stronger. And look, we know how much you’ve done for us, and we’re very grateful for that, but we wanted to take some of the weight off of you, that’s it. Look, it worked because Iyo is still champion. Damage CTRL is stronger than ever. This should be a celebration. That’s what you wanted.

Kairi Sane: Bayley, I respect you as a leader of Damage CTRL. And I forgive you.

Bayley: I don’t hug anymore. I don’t do that.

All of Damage CTRL proceeds to hug Bayley.

Bianca BelAir: Hold up, hold up. See, Kairi might forgive Bayley, but I don’t forgive Damage CTRL. See, my mistake was believing that Iyo actually had enough confidence to face me one on one, but oops, my bad. Tonight, I will have to whoop all three of you.

Bayley: Oh, Bianca, no one likes a sore loser.

Bianca BelAir: Yeah, but a lot of people don’t like Damage CTRL. And guess who else was upset that Kairi joined Damage CTRL?

Asuka: Iyo, Kairi, no one is ready for Asuka.

LA Knight & Grayson Waller Segment 

LA Knight: Let me talk to you. Crown Jewel didn’t go exactly the way I hoped for. And I come out here, and I can tell you that I’m sorry and that I fell short. I can tell you that I didn’t live up to the expectations. Yeah, I’m not going to say anything because I would be a damn liar. Because I did exactly what I said I was going to do. I walked into this ring. I took Roman Reigns within an inch of that WWE Championship. I dropped his head with a BFT. And I had him with a 1-2-3, if not for Jimmy Uso. Let’s just call what it was. I got robbed. I’m not going to mince words about that. But Roman Reigns, let me tell you this, right now.

Take every dollar you got, give Jimmy Uso a raise, give Jimmy Uso a promotion, give Jimmy Uso the pleasure you can give him, because the bottom line is, without him, you would be looking at the new WWE Champion right now. And so, a lot of people might think, well, back to the drawing board, maybe you just go to the back of the line, Huh? Nah-Nah. You got to understand something, I’m not done with The Bloodline. The Bloodline is not done with me until I own Roman Reigns, until I own the WWE Championship. YEAH! Which means I got to take them out, piece by piece.

Grayson Waller: LA Knight, you’re straight up embarrassing yourself right now, mate. You’re blaming everybody but yourself. So, what I think you need is a dose of honesty. Because the truth is, you know it, these flops know it, maybe you’re just not the guy. But I certainly know someone who is the guy.

LA Knight: Hey, everybody, it’s Kangaroo Jackass.

Grayson Waller: He’s a comedian. Well, how about we do an impromptu, Grayson Waller Effect, because I got a question that I need an answer for. Do you really think that you belong in the ring with Roman Reigns?

LA Knight: I’ll get to that in a second. Let me answer your question, with a question of my own. Actually, I got a question for everybody. The Grayson Waller Effect, that sounds like an STD, right? This guy, he got dropped by a Saudi movie star at Crown Jewel. And he’s out here asking if I belong in the ring with Roman Reigns. Well, I see you got your five-dollar haircut, you’re ready to take your school pictures, good for you. The only problem is, when I look at you, I just get the feeling you’re not allowed to be 50 yards by a school, you creep. But let’s be serious for a second. You got yourself in a lot of hot water right now. You got a match with me. And how did you do that, because you wanted to play around on the internet. I guess you can take boy out of the mother’s basement, but you can’t take the mother’s basement out of the boy.

Grayson Waller: I think you need to remember who you’re talking to, lad.

LA Knight: I remember who I’m talking to, because you were coming at me with a lot of energy yesterday on X. As a matter of fact, I think we call that big incel energy. But I’m going to put it to you like this. While you’re worrying about whether I belong in the ring with Roman Reigns, let’s worry about the fact that, right now, you want to talk a big game on X, you found yourself in the ring with a very angry, frustrated, me. And what that means is that I’m going to take every bit of anger and frustration out when I stomp out your keester while the whole world tells you whose game this is, with everybody saying, LA Knight.
