This week’s SmackDown started as footage from WrestleMania Backlash was shown where in the main event of the show the Bloodline defeated RK-Bro and Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns pinned Riddle to earn the victory for his side.
RK-Bro’s mind set was clear. They said the exact same thing they were saying on Monday Night RAW that they were here to look for the Tag Team Championship unification match. The venue is not set yet but it looks like it will take place at the next pay per view event.

Sami Zayn came out and after not to demand for the Tag Team Championship unification match because ultimatly they would lose. He also said that he was talking on behalf of the Bloodline. During this segment he was given a new name which was Rusty. Orton proposed a match between Riddle and Sami which Adam Pearce made official.
Match 1 – Riddle defeated Sami Zayn
This match was booked for 7 and a half minutes. The match was good, however, it was easily predictable. It was the fun match to watch. Zayn was particularly quite entertaining. Riddle pinned Zayn with Bro Derek.
The new WWE SmackDown Women’s champion Ronda Rousey came out to the arena. Footage from her win at WrestleMania Backlash was shown. Ronda first talked about her win over Charlotte Flair. Then she issued an open challenge. Raquel Rodriguez answered the challenge.
Match 2 – WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship – Ronda Rousey defeated Raquel Rodriguez to retain
The match was booked for 6 minutes but in a short amount of time the duo staged the really good match. The defeat for Rodriguez came quite early, but since it came by the hands of Ronda, it would not be a huge deal. Ronda pinned Rodriguez with a roll up.
Madcap Moss got interviewed inside the ring by Kayla Braxton. Moss talked about her win over King Corbin at WrestleMania Backlash. He then talked about his wish to compete in Money in the Bank ladder match. Suddenly he got attacked by Corbin. It was a vicious attack. Moss had to be sent to the hospital.
Match 3 – WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship – Sasha Banks and Naomi defeated Natalya and Shayna Baszler
This match was booked for around 6 minutes and it was a good match. It was the second championship match of the night. Naomi pinned Natalya with a roll up for the win.
Match 4 – Butch defeated Kofi Kingston
Finally, a victory for Pete Dunne. Oh I’m sorry, a victory for Butch. And it was a huge victory, more importantly a clean one. Kofi was distracted by the other wrestlers who were surrounding the ring, Butch capitalised with a Face First. This feud seriously needs to end now. This is getting really boring.
The Bloodline came out for the final segment of the night. And it was all about the unification of the Tag Team Championship. It might sound a little disappointing that they could not keep anything better for the main event. RK bro also came out and challenged The Usos for the Tag Team Championship unification match. They accepted it and the match is scheduled for next week. This is really huge, a Championship unification match is taking place on SmackDown. Riddle hit Roman with a knee and escaped as this week’s SmackDown went of air.
Overall it was a boring week of Smackdown. There is literally nothing to see. However, there were two Championship matches. Ronda Rousey vs. Raquel Rodriguez was somehow a dream match but terribly presented. Still no feud for the Intercontinental championship. The full concentration was on the Tag Team Championship unification segment. Apart from that it was really lazy from the creative team. We give it 1 star out of 5.
