WWE Friday Night SmackDown Results For November 18, 2022


Welcome to EWrestlingNews’ WWE Friday Night SmackDown results for November 18, 2022!

The Brawling Brutes and Drew McIntyre are out for a promo to open the show. Sheamus brings up that he and McIntyre have quite the history with one another, having gone to war several times inside the ring. However, they’ll team up at WarGames and fight on the same side against The Bloodline. He asks McIntyre to be an honorary Brute, and McIntyre accepts.


Just when the fifth member of their team is about to be introduced, Sami Zayn interrupts things. Zayn says The Bloodline doesn’t care who their fifth member is, as they’re going to win anyway. Sheamus warns that The Bloodline will “crap their pants” when they find out who the final member is.
