WWE Friday Night SmackDown Results for October 9, 2020


We start the 2020 WWE Draft and out comes Stephanie McMahon. The first pick of the first round is Drew McIntyre, and he’s staying on RAW. With SmackDown’s first pick, they retain Roman Reigns.

The next pick for RAW is them retaining Asuka and with SmackDown’s next pick, they pick up Seth Rollins. The last pick of the first round is The Hurt Business staying on RAW.

Seth Rollins is interviewed about being drafted to SmackDown, and he says the name of Monday Night Messiah was never as important as the message he tried to send. He says he has new paths to cross, and while he’s sad that he won’t see the Mysterio family implode in person, he’s thankful he doesn’t have to see their ugly faces again.

Big E vs. Sheamus – Falls Count Anywhere

Big E and Sheamus take the fight to the parking lot, and it ends with Big E putting Sheamus through a table with the Big Ending.

Winner: Big E

Big E is met by Kofi and Xavier backstage and they congratulate him on the match. They say he needs to keep pushing so that one day he can become WWE Champion.

Out comes Jey Uso, and he demands to know the stipulation for their HIAC match. He gets no answer before Paul gets on the titantron and says Jey needs to slow down and not be so ambitious, as should the other guys being drafted from RAW.

A video package hyping Roman plays. Roman says to believe nothing that you hear and half of what you see. But he says Jey needs to believe what he just saw. He wants to help him be better, and he just has to acknowledge him. Roman says now in the first time inside Hell In a Cell, there will be an I Quit match. It didn’t have to be like this, and he just wants to help Jey and that he loves him. But after he says he quits, there will be consequences.
