In the go home show before Wrestlemania tomorrow, John Cena responds to Bray Wyatt’s challenge.
We open the show expecting the entrance of Miz and Morrison for Miz TV, instead we get the Usos! The Usos said they didn’t want to wait to be invited out, I mean they didn’t want to get blindsided again.
They also said that they are ready to take the tag team championships down from the ladder at Wrestlemania. Before they can continue…the New Day arrive!
Kofi and Big E came out saying “Oh No” a bunch of times. Once they got into the ring, they questioned the Usos about why they thought they would walk out champs. The two teams then bickered back and forth, that is until Miz and Morrison appeared.
Miz talked about how they have grown accustomed to the disrespect, despite being A-Listers. They talked about how they defeated the entire tag team division in the Elimination Chamber. But they also brought up a good point, while New Days and the Usos are being buddy/buddy now that can’t last.
While the other two teams destroy each other, Miz and Morrison will climb the ladder to retain their championships (as they climb the ladders set up at entrance). The New Day and Usos left the ring in pursuit of the champs. Things went well for awhile, until miscommunications occurred. The Champs were the last team standing after the short brawl.
Tamina defeated Naomi and Lacey Evans via Pinfall
Bayley and Sasha Banks happened to be on commentary during the match and they would make their presence felt. Sasha by taking out Lacey Evans and Bayley by snapping Naomi’s neck on the ropes.
Post match, Bayley and Sasha tried to make nice with Tamina. Didn’t work out so well for either woman, as Tamina took them both out.
After a commercial break, we saw Tucker backstage getting ready for his match when Mandy Rose arrives. There was another interference, which showed “The Truth Will Be Heard.”
We then got a replay of Ric Flair’s retirement match. Which out of all the replays we have gotten, this was my favorite.
After the replay, we are shown what occurred between Elias and King Corbin last week. Michael Cole told us that their match for Mania is still scheduled, but as of right now Elias still isn’t cleared.
We then find out Goldberg will now defend the Universal Title against Braun Strowman. No explanation for Roman Reigns being out of the match.
Backstage we see Tucker and Otis. Tucker said Mandy Rose was asking about him, but was pretty sure she headed to Dolph Ziggler’s locker room right after. Otis then got a mysterious text message and heads off, rather excited.
Tucker Knight defeated Dolph Ziggler via DQ
The match started off okay, both men going for hard hitting moves. But once the action went to the outside all bets were off. Ziggler hit Tucker with a Zig Zag on the steel steps and the ref called for the bell.
As Ziggler tried to take Tucker completely out with the steel steps, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville came out. Mandy screamed at Dolph to stop, then Otis came out to check on his tag team partner.
In the midst of the chaos, we got another The Truth Will Be Heard interference. A dark hooded figure appeared on the tron, asked if they all had been paying attention. He then pressed play on footage from Valentines Day. This footage showed Rose backstage preparing for her date talking to Sonya about how nice Otis is.
When Rose left the room, Sonya grabbed her phone and texted Otis. Then footage was shown of Sonya making a deal with Dolph Ziggler. Back at ringside Sonya is pleading with Rose that she wouldn’t do anything to hurt her. Rose isn’t buying it and she heads for backstage.
When we came back from a commercial, Sonya is chasing after Mandy Rose. Sonya wants to explain, but Rose just storms off.
Daniel Bryan defeated Shinsuke Nakamura via DQ
A disqualification for a match involving these two just seems wrong, doesn’t it? Sami Zayn was on commentary, which was enjoyable and the match itself, up til the end, was good!
After the DQ, Cesaro, Nakamura and Sami Zayn proceeded to take out Drew Gulak and Daniel Bryan. They laid waste to Bryan with a Neutralizer, a Kinshasa, and a Helluva Kick!
We end Smackdown with John Cena responding to The Fiend/Bray Wyatt. Cena started off by talking about the WWE’s decision to continue running shows from the PC. He thanked us for allowing them to navigate the situation, as he knows there have been a lot of meh moments along the way.
Cena said that starting tomorrow night, it will be the most viewed and talked about Wrestlemania in history. Why? Because no one knows what’s really going to happen.
Cena has been trying to just figure out what a Firefly Funhouse match is, but can’t find anyone to tell him. He doesn’t even think Bray Wyatt knows what it is. Cena said he won’t panic, he isn’t afraid, but he will finish what he started six years ago and squash Wyatt.
Goldberg exposed that the Fiend has weaknesses. Cena at Mania will exposed the Fiend as an embarrassment. He wanted to step aside, but the Fiend made this challenge and has tried to gain any and all advantages. So as far as Wyatt’s challenge goes, Cena accepts.
The Fun House pals appeared and kept chanting about how Cena will play with them forever. Cena had a stare down with the Fiend, but then all of a sudden Bray Wyatt appears behind John and tells him to run. The lights go and when they come back Cena is all alone. That’s the show!
