The Street Profits, Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio vs. Otis, Chad Gable, and SmackDown Tag Team Champions Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler was the first match of the night.

WWE Smackdown Results (12/03/21): Big E returned
Big E was back on SmackDown who called out Apollo Crews for retribution purposes. Instead, King Corbin and Sami Zayn appeared as E told them that the first one to enter the ring will get a title shot, right there. Sami ran down and got a belly-to-belly Suplex from E.
Afterward, E did compete in an IC Title Match against Sami as he successfully defended the belt after hitting Sami with the Big Ending. Apollo Crews then attacked E from behind and executed two Angle Slams. He then brought a steel ring step and took out E with it.
In the main event segment, Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns signed the contract to make their Fastlane Title Match official.

Adam Pearce agreed and made the match official for next Friday on SmackDown. A brawl broke out in the ring as Edge and Bryan worked together to take Reigns and Uso out of the ring. Suddenly, Edge received a Running Knee from Bryan to go down. Bryan led a YES chant to end the show.
