WWE SmackDown Results: Winners, Grades, Reaction and Highlights from May 14

Jey Uso kicked off Friday’s show, one week after his brother Jimmy returned to the show.

He introduced Reigns, who was clearly dismayed by the events of last week, both with regards to Uso and his WrestleMania Backlash opponent, Cesaro.

Reigns, though, is so much more than a wrestler.

Jimmy told his brother to jump on the right team, to which Jey implored him to get on the same page with the family and Reigns.

An irate Reigns said he is The Head of the Table because he is who he is and the Usos are who they are.

Back from the commercial break, Natalya created separation and tagged in Tamina, who was vying for the first major title of her decade-long WWE career.

Back inside, Jax dropped The Queen of Harts with a Samoan Drop, only to fall victim to a Superfly Splash from Tamina.

Tamina and Natalya have chased the titles since prior to WrestleMania and absolutely deserved the chance to run with them.

Sami Zayn interrupted the proceedings, reminded Crews they have a bone to pick because he is holding Zayn’s title.

It was fine for what it was, and Bayley referring to Belair as a lot like herself an eternity ago was a great touch.

After a few minutes of back-and-forth, Nakamura caught Corbin with an armbar.

With his foe down, Nakamura grabbed his crown and put it on his own head, much to the dismay of Pat McAfee on commentary.

All of it seemed to point to some sort of feud for the crown and considering the lack of anything better for them to participate in, there are worse options.

Aleister Black returned with another lesson, a story from his father about being forged of steel against a man made of ash.

Cesaro and Jimmy Uso headlined the night’s show back in the ThunderDome, the former landing a big suplex that showed off his power advantage while Uso rocked him with an enzuigiri.

Back from the break, Cesaro escaped Uso’s grasp and rocked him with a barrage of body shots, an uppercut and a big clothesline for two.

Uso told Reigns it’s always about him, that he had Cesaro where he wanted him.

Cesaro and Uso had a damn fun match down the stretch, brought to a sudden end by the interference of Reigns.

Cesaro is on the hottest run of his career and if the storyline can continue to be this compelling, he will survive what is sure to be a loss Sunday on Peacock.
