Here are the full results for the January 17th, 2020 edition of Friday Night SmackDown.
We begin the show with Kane and he talks about the Royal Rumble. He’s cut off by Bray Wyatt.
He calls Bray a Big Red Bully, and wants to assure everyone that Rambling Rabbit is fine. He also says he doesn’t think anyone winning the Rumble is a good idea, because they’d challenge him at WrestleMani.
He also references Kane’s photo on the wall, and Bray says he could never forget him and neither will “he”. The lights go out. When they come back on, Kane is outside the ring and The Fiend comes from under the ring. The Fiend approaches Kane from behind, and Kane asks him what took him so long.
Daniel Bryan takes out The Fiend from behind with a running knee and forces him back under the ring. Bryan has some of The Fiend’s dreadlocks.
Bryan and Kane remember when they each were the tag team champions and then Bryan is interviewed. He says The Fiend is good at running away, and he challenges The Fiend to a Strap Match at the Rumble. He says The Fiend changed him, and at the Rumble, he’ll change The Fiend.
