Friday Night Get-Down: January 22, 2021

Tonight on SmackDown!  We run the Intercontinental Title match back as Big E defends against Apollo Crews!  Bayley and Bianca Belair engage in an obstacle course race!  Kevin Owens and Adam Pearce may have to answer for their bait and switch!  And more people enter the Royal Rumble by fiat unless AJ Styles is allowed to be gatekeeper on both shows!

Tomorrow On This Very Blog, our own Mike reviews the 2002 Royal Rumble!  On Monday, it’s some joshi from 1994!

So the WWE India show “Superstar Spectacle” is in the can, and while I won’t reveal the results, I can say that it’s a good mix of the young Indian talent they have with some current stars to help them out.  Plus, Drew McIntyre was cleared to take part, which is a very good sign for the Royal Rumble.

Dynamite matches announced: Hangman Page gets a tune-up against Ryan Nemeth, Chris Jericho and MJF vs. the Varsity Blondes, Eddie Kingston and Lance Archer go nuts, Dr. Britt Baker vs. Shanna, Dax Harwood faces Jungle Boy, and Bullet Club goes against the Dark Order (Gallows/Anderson/Matt/Nick vs Uno/Stu/Reynolds/Silver).  Plus, Cody Rhodes wants to talk to and about Shaq.

Trading Places became a documentary today with GameStop.  I’m not joking.  Reddit has been weaponized against the financial sector.

And now, your AEW Dark Match of the Week, as Nick Comoroto looks to overpower South Central’s smooth criminal, Scorpio Sky!

Okay, folks, we’ve been over the rules.  I want you to obey the moderator’s instructions at all times.  I expect a good, clean thread.  Now touch gloves, go to your keyboards, and come out posting!
