It’s our final show as Smackdown Live is set to complete the puzzle that is WrestleMania.
We’re getting started with the KO Show. Kevin Owens wastes no time introducing Randy Orton and AJ Styles to the ring. Randy mocks AJ’s inde past, and AJ fires back with Randy’s failed drug tests. Ouch. Kevin Owens leaves the ring and his guests brawl with each other. Randy hits a sick RKO when AJ goes for the Phenomenal forearm.
Backstage we see The New Day getting ready to sign their championship contract.
Aleister Black, Ricochet & The Usos vs The Bar, Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev with Lana
Result: Jimmy Uso pins Rusev to get the win for the good guys.
Alexa Bliss comes out, she’s making a match for WrestleMania. It’s yet another multi man match, as the Usos will defend against the teams in the ring in a Fatal Fourway. They all brawl.
The ICONIICS make their way out to the ring. They have a message for their WrestleMania opponents. Nothing much here.
A lot of talking tonight, as The Miz makes his way out.
The Miz vs sAnItY (Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe & Killian Dain)
Result: The Miz pins Young backstage.
A police car arrives outside the arena, and Becky Lynch gets out the back. Corey Graves welcomes The Man to the ring. Becky doesn’t want to be in the ring though, and she walks out and stands on the announce table. Becky hypes the Main Event at Mania and says she will be a double champ.
We get a tease at an historic 18 person mixed tag match up next. Woah. Corey Graves says it’s 18 people and Mandy Rose heh.
Mandy Rose, Sonya De Ville, EC3, Anderson, Gallows, Andrade, Zelina Vega, Shelton Benjamin & Lana vs The Hardy Boys, Asuka, Heavy Machinery, R-Truth, Carmella, Nikki Cross & Naomi
Result: The match ends in a brawl with everyone clearing house until Asuka and Jeff Hardy are the last two standing. Asuka throws Jeff over the top rope to stand tall.
Samoa Joe vs Alia (formerly Mustafa Ali)
Result: Joe chokes out Ali with the Coquina Clutch.
WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and Rowan make their way out to the ring. It’s time to sing the WWE Championship contract. Michael Cole welcomes Kofi Kingston to the ring. Huge Kofi chant, but Daniel Bryan shhh’s them, heh. Bryan starts to speak, but a Kofi Mania chat keeps starting up. Great work by Bryan here as he plays with the crowd. Eventually Kofi speaks and delivers a passionate warning ahead of Mania. They stare down to end the show.
That’s it! We will see you at WrestleMania!
