WWE SmackDown Live Recap: September 24, 2019

AKA The One Where An Era Ends


  • Erick Rowan defeats Daniel Bryan
  • Chad Gable defeats Mike Kanellis
  • Sasha Banks and Bayley defeat Carmella and Charlotte
  • Shinsuke Nakamura defeats Ali
  • The New Day defeat The B-Team
  • Kabuki Warriors defeat Fire & Desire

Match of the Night: Sasha Banks and Bayley defeat Carmella and Charlotte

As usual, three out of four members of the Horsewomen put on a pretty solid tag team match. Although being shorter than I would’ve hoped, it did what it was supposed to do. The match ended with Banks making Carmella tap out, which seemed like a way to allow Raw Women’s Champ Becky Lynch back into this feud. Last week during Smackdown Live Lynch was not on site due to a prior commitment, which is why Carmella took her spot.

After the match was over, Charlotte was starting to get double teamed by Banks and Bayley, when Lynch came to save the day. Lynch locked in the Dis-Arm-Her on Banks before “The Boss” was rescued by her partner. Banks and Lynch would later have an altercation backstage to continue this blood feud between them. At the end, the match accomplished what it was supposed to do and let these women shine once again.

Three Thoughts

New Match for Hell in a Cell

Tonight we saw Daniel Bryan face off against Rowan to start off the show. After Rowan won using the Iron Claw, Harper assisted in trying to put Bryan through a table. Roman Reigns then helped Bryan by laying a Superman Punch to Luke Harper and a Spear to Erick Rowan. After this was finished, Bryan asked the crowd if they would like to see Reigns and himself team up against the former Smackdown Tag Team Champions at Hell in a Cell. This match was officially announced later that night, adding a tag match to the card.

The Beast is Back

Brock Lesnar is going to beat Kofi Kingston, and I’m happy about it. Since returning to WWE a few years ago, nobody has wanted Lesnar to hold a title, especially myself. As Kofi’s title reign starts to become stale, a change sounds nice. You could hear the crowd boo Kingston as he defeated Randy Orton at Clash of Champions, meaning it’s time for a change. Lesnar being champ on Smackdown with a fresh set of opponents following the draft could allow for a more interesting title reign for the Beast Incarnate. There are also rumors that Lesnar is now a full time employee, which means he will actually defend his belt against anyone not from the Shield.

Shorty G Time

Please just tell us what the name “Shorty G” is going to be used for already. Stop teasing us WWE gods! Anyways, Chad Gable is a star. He has immense talent and should be the guy to beat Lesnar once he beats Kingston for the title next week. Please.

Grade: B+

This show was alright. Not much else to say. Some advancement in story line but not much. Pretty solid wrestling all around and an alright way to end their time on USA. Happy to see what they do next week on their first episode on Fox.
