WWE SmackDown results – February 11, 2022

The show opens with a video recap from last week of Ronda Rousey choosing SmackDown Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair, to face at WrestleMania.

We cross live to the arena in New Orleans with Corey Graves filling in for Pat McAfee this week on commentary.

WWE Official, Sonya Deville, is already in the ring. Deville welcomes everyone to the show. Sonya says he has to acknowledge the attack that she endured from Ronda Rousey last week. Sonya says Ronda and Naomi have no regard for authority. Sonya said she doesn’t care who it is, there will be consequences for their actions.  Sonya said that she sent a petition to upper management for Ronda to be fined $100,000 and had been suspended immediately. Adam Pearce then appears with an email on his phone from Vince McMahon. Adam reads it and it says that Vince is sick of WWE authority figures taking matters into their own hands and getting physical. Vince declines her petition, and also says that she is not allowed to lay her hands on Naomi tonight in the SmackDown Women’s Championship match. If she doesn’t, then her job would be in serious jeopardy.

Naomi then makes her way out to the ring. Naomi asks Sonya what’s the matter. Naomi mentions that Vince said in his email that Sonya can’t lay her hands on Naomi, but that doesn’t stop Naomi from laying her hands on her. Naomi then slaps Sonya as the WWE Official is shocked, much to the delight of the Feel The Glow superstar.

Paul Heyman says he doesn’t care about him and he loves his Tribal Chief.

Roman then says nobody cares about Goldberg and he’s here now, and he’s the greatest Universal Champion of all time. Cole brings up the match Reigns and Goldberg should have had at WrestleMania 36 and asks if there’s any added pressure. Reigns said all the pressure was on Goldberg. He said two years ago, Goldberg might have had a chance, but he’s the Head of the Table now and says he’s going to smash Goldberg. Roman Reigns says he’s going to ‘Goldberg’ Goldberg.

A video is shown from earlier today of Johnny Knoxville visiting a WWE store and Sami Zayn damaging Zayn’s merchandise. Knoxville said, “it’s not over.” Zayn says he’s not going to dignify that.

Zayn then mocks the audience before Rick Boogs appears as he introduces Shinsuke Nakamura.

Sami Zayn tells Shinsuke to have a seat. Sami is shocked he showed up because he’s been the No.1 contender for the IC Title for six weeks and Nakamura has been ducking him. Zayn can’t wait to see the look on his face next week when he beats him. Zayn thinks Nakamura has been secretly working with Johnny Knoxville. Shinsuke pauses him and asks him if he saw the movie. Not Jackass Forever, but Jackass Defeated. Sami then questions Shinsuke going from having Sami in his corner to now having Rick Boogs in his corner. Boogs then tells him to shut up.

Michael Cole is shown backstage interviewing Goldberg similar to how he did with Roman Reigns earlier tonight. Goldberg tells Cole that he loves him like a brother. Cole says there are whispers out there that it may be one comeback too many. Goldberg says the problem is he has listened to a couple of those people, but he’s turned a page and he doesn’t care what anybody thinks. He says this comeback is going to stick and be everlasting.

Cole mentions the match that should have happened at WrestleMania 36. Goldberg says he is still the same Goldberg, and Roman Reigns is going to get what he deserves. Cole says that Roman Reigns said earlier that he’s going to ‘Goldberg’ Goldberg. Goldberg says as for Roman Reigns he will beat him next week and he’s going to walk out with the Universal Championship next week and go onto WrestleMania to face Brock Lesnar. Goldberg says there is only one Goldberg.

A recap is shown of the segment that kicked off the show which resulted in Naomi slapping Sonya Deville.

Charlotte Flair vs. Naomi for the SmackDown Women’s Championship

The match started around 25 minutes before the broadcast was due to end, so it appeared the bout was going to get a lot of time. Naomi scored a number of believable near falls to keep everyone on the edge of their seat, however, in the end, Charlotte Flair retained her championship with the Natural Selection. Overall, that was a great match.

Winner: Still SmackDown Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair via pinfall

After the match, Sonya Deville entered the ring and Naomi attacked her. Charlotte re-entered the ring to take down Naomi, only for Ronda Rousey to make her way out as Ronda beats down both Charlotte Flair and Sonya. Charlotte eventually pulls Sonya to safety.
