WWE Friday Night SmackDown Results: A Flight Delay from Saudi Arabia Will Bring a "Special" Episode

Friday Night SmackDown airs live from Buffalo, New York just one day after the Crown Jewel pay-per-view. And after some "mechanical issues" many of the traditional WWE superstars won't make the show.

It seems the plan for tonight's SmackDown will be changed, which is a shame considering the new Universal Champion, "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt was supposed to appear on Miz TV. He could have shed some light on what this means for Monday Night RAW, now without its top title, and for WWE as a whole.

A match was announced earlier this week was a six-women tag match that's anchored by the number-one contender for the SmackDown Women's Championship, Nikki Cross and the champ herself, Bayley. Whether or not that match will still happen is unknown, but if it does, it could bring some momentum for Cross as she heads into her future title shot.

Unfortunately, we won't get the proper fallout episode that follows a pay-per-view, but the unpredictability of tonight's show could be fun.

Here's everything that happened on the November 1 episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
