WWE Friday Night SmackDown Results – (11/20/20)
Then… Now… WWE FOREVER. We head backstage immediately with Angelo Dawkins clapping shouting, “YYEEEAAA!”
Backstage – The Street Profits
Are you ready?” Montez Ford sings, “For Friday Night Smoke… in the NEW Champion Lounge?!” Ford states it’s only two days until Survivor Series where they will say their final farewell to The Undertaker. The Dead Man, The Big Evil, The Phenom… Ford notes Undertaker’s eyes as he rolls his back in his head. Thunder and lightening as the lights flicker and someone steps up from behind the table behind The Street Profits. Dawkins says “No way…”
Big E Joins The Street Profits
The low hat wearing mysterious figure is heard saying in a low voice, “Rest… In… Pea..e…e…eeace!” as he begins to laugh, we see Big E in a sombraro. Dawkins asks about the hat, Big E says, “That’s all he had in props!” I may not be the Undertaker, but speaking of being burried, “We know, from beating New Day, and knocking Kofi’s jamacian accent back in…” Big E states they got jokes. Big E then reminds The Profits they are only two days away of taking on the Picaso’s of punches, and hypes up New Day who will face the Street Profits at Survivor Series 2020 in a Champion vs Champion Match. Ford responds that all the Profits do is win, win, win as he removes his sunglasses. Dawkins says that they’ll break bread with the New Day any day, but this Sunday they’re going to bury the New Day. They’re going to beat the New Day’s A double dollar signs Dawkins states. Ford says, “Cuz the Street Profits are UP, and they want… the smoke.” Big E tells them that he’s not worried, and the New Day are there, tonight. “AWwwwww STREET PROFITS DONT YOU DARE BE SOUR CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD FAMOUS TEN TIME CHAMPS AND FEEEEEL THE POOWWEERRR!!!” as he looks into Ford’s eyes. We head into the ThunderDome as the actual music plays for the New Day.
In Ring: RAW Tag Team Champions New Day
Michael Cole and Corey Graves discuss New Day until we enter the ring where Xavier Woods plays a trumpet horribly inside the ring as he makes his way into the ring with Kofi Kingston by his side. We see Xavier with the mic as he begins, “We know, we know, we don’t even go here no more. But we were invited, so we said why not? Why not come back and see if there are any giant fists breaking through big panes of glass?” Kofi adds, “Why not check into the SmackDown Hotel… one more time?” “Why not give WWEOnFox a reason to talk?” Woods states. Kofi says he hates them and wants them to keep his name out they mouth!
They remind that two days from now is Survivor Series and they had a few words for The Street Profits. “They’re right to want the smoke, and only the smoke, because they damn sure don’t want this FIRE!” Kofi states. “Because they’d be DEAD men!” Woods finishes. Kofi states that’s harsh, he wants a match, not to kill anyone… Woods says he was trying to do a tribute to The Dead Man, The Undertaker. They then lay down on the canvas and sit up doing their best impression of The Undertaker, Woods eyes rolled into the back of his head.
Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn Interrupts
