Last night marked the go-home episode of Smackdown before Extreme Rules PPV. A Wrestlemania rematch was the main event of the show. The contenders for tag team titles appeared on the Miz TV. Plus, there was a Lumberjack inter-gender match on the show.
Here are the results from it that took place at the SNHU Arena of Manchester in New Hampshire.
Miz TV kicked things off for Smackdown Live. Team Hell No was his guests on the show. As always he tried to stir the pot between Kane and Daniel Bryan.
Giant Kane became angry and grabbed Miz by the throat. Budgeon Brothers and SAnitY hit the ring trying to ambush Kane and Bryan. The New Day ran out to make the save but the heels stood tall to end the segment.
The opening contest of Smackdown took place between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura.
Furthermore, Rusev came out before the match to join the commentary table. He boasted about how the WWE Championship already belongs to him.
Styles was going for a top rope move when Rusev tripped him down. Nakamura and Rusev were about to form a double-team against him.
Jeff Hardy came out to neutralize things. He put the two heels down with a double drop-kick.
However, Smackdown general manager came out to announce a tag team match. Hardy and Styles teamed up against Rusev and Nakamura.
Hardy went for Twist of Fate when Nakamura tripped him off the rope. Rusev hit the Machka Kick to clinch the win.
Smackdown women surrounded the ring prior to Asuka versus Ellsworth Lumberjack match. They prevented Ellsworth from escaping the ring for a number of times. This allowed Asuka to lock in the Asuka Lock on Ellsworth to get the win.
Carmella ate a kick from Asuka after the match. Ellsworth spread pepper spray on Asuka allowing Carmella to hit a superkick on her.
Andrade Cien Almas received a match against Sin Cara on Smackdown. Cara was rolling after hitting a Hurricurana. He went for a top rope move but Almas put up his knees.
However, thereafter he delivered the running knees to the corner. This earned him another victory owing to the main roster.
However, Team Hell No teamed up with The New Day to take on Bludgeon Brothers and SAnitY in the main event of Smackdown.
Also, Daniel Bryan put the ‘YES’ lock on Eric Young. But the other members of SAnitY broke the move. But, Big E neutralized Dain with a spear. This allowed Bryan to hit the Running Knee on Young to get the pinfall win.
