This week’s SmackDown aired with a major WrestleMania match confirmation for the Women’s Title. Rey Mysterio went for retribution against Otis and Gable. Also, the title picture was shaken up with Daniel Bryan willing to leave a message to Roman Reigns. Check out the results from the show that aired from the Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay, Florida.
Roman Reigns opened things on SmackDown to cut a promo on Edge’s WrestleMania challenge. He didn’t really want to hurt a man like Edge and advised him to go home. Daniel Bryan interrupted and mentioned how things were unfair for him at Elimination Chamber. He wanted another title shot and Jey Uso said Bryan had to defeat him in order to receive that. Jey sent Bryan out of the floor and stood tall with Reigns.
Hall of Famer Edge was shown, backstage as he mentioned to Adam Pearce that he was ready to take on Roman Reigns and Jey Uso at Fastlane teaming with Daniel Bryan. But it seems Bryan vs Uso will go down, later the night with the winner facing Reigns at Fastlane.
Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio vs. Otis and Chad Gable was the opening contest of SmackDown. Mysterios dropped Gable with double 619s but Otis made the save. He dropped Dominik out of the ring before slamming Rey to the mat. Otis delivered the flying splash for the win.
Apollo Crews cut a heel promo before competing in a singles contest against Shinsuke Nakamura. He had new ring attire which he used for laverage to get out of the Sleeper submission hold by Nakamura. Crews sent Nakamura into the corner before hitting him with the Angle Slam for the win.
Tamina Snuka vs Liv Morgan was the next match on SmackDown where Natalya and Ruby Riott were watching from ringside. After hitting a missile drop-kick on Tamina, Liv missed a charge-in into the corner. Tamina caught her with a Samoan Drop followed by a tilt-a-whirl side slam for the pin to win.
