WWE Friday Night SmackDown rolls on here tonight, Jordan Huie of the Overtimer here to continue the coverage of this evening’s show! Sami Zayn and Cesaro will be staging a protest concert against Elias later on.
We see a video hyping up Bill Goldberg and now we’re talking to Hulk Hogan who says being inducted in the Hall of Fame means 4 lyfe. Michael Cole brings up that one of his greatest rivals in the nWo was Goldberg, asks if he thinks Goldberg has a chance of beating the Fiend. Hogan says he knows the power of Bill Goldberg but also the Fiend. He’s been in the back, he’s felt the energy coming from under the door, he’s felt the vibes and it’s scary and it’s powerful. But the Fiend better try to survive the power of Bill Goldberg.
He’s cut off. “The following has been paid for by the Firefly Funhouse”, there’s an nWo parody logo. Black and white filter as Bray Wyatt comes up playing guitar on the WWE Universal Championship. He tears a shirt and everything. Bray says he took his vitamins and said his prayers. Hulk laughs at his antics and wishes him good luck against Super Show-Down. Bray says he doesn’t need luck, he has a Fiend. But warns him… that there’s always room for another, and he holds up a portrait of Hulk Hogan. Hogan says he’ll see him in Tampa for the Hall of Fame. Bray waves goodbye.
Sami Zayn and Cesaro now in the ring for a protest concert.
Sami is holding a little ukelele. Cesaro has himself a cowbell. Says himself, Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura have suffered injustices at the hands of Elias and Braun Strowman. Crowd gives him the what treatment as he compares himself to famous protest singers of days gone by. Makes a dumb spectacle of himself getting tuned up and demanding silence. Just before they start, Elias’ strum interrupts them and the crowd pops big. Elias says he knows what Sami’s doing, he’s trying to make a name off of him. He says the reason is because he knows deep in his heart that there is a universal truth that everyone here in Vancouver knows, it’s that WWE stands for Walk With Elias and the crowd is big into it.
Sami demands he shut up and berates him for interrupting the protest. Elias says that he is in fact staging a counter-protest. Sami says on any other night, he’d have his security guards throw him out of the building but it’s fine. If he has something he wants to for real, go ahead. He has his guards let him in, he believes in free speech and he wants him real close to hear their song ’cause a lot of it has to do with him. Elias says he’s interested. Crowd sings “Oh, Walk With Elias”, which Elias puts over. Sami tells them to shut their mouths and they keep playing. Cesaro goes wild on the cowbell, Sami demands he dial it down. Crowd chants “We Want Cowbell” very loudly. Cesaro makes like he’s gonna give it to ’em, just to toss it away for cheap heat.
The crowd continues singing the chant and Sami says if they don’t shut their mouths, this concert is over.
As you’d expect, this gets a big pop and a chant of yes. Sami says the only joke around here is having some player’s numbers hanging from the rafters, it gets big cheap heat, didn’t really catch the name. Sami and Cesaro eventually just jump Elias, Braun Strowman makes the save. Plows through security, Sami falls on his back and is in trouble! But one of the security boys smacks Braun on the back, Strowman turns and chases him into the ring where Elias takes him out with a clothesline, they toss him from the ring and he lands on other guards, faces stand tall!
SmackDown right now could not possibly be further from what Fox was promised. But it’s weirdly fun. The crowd really made that segment.
