Good evening Fight Fans and welcome to our coverage of tonight's edition of WWE Smackdown on FOX!
- We open the show with the Smackdown Women's champion Bayley and Sasha Banks where they get into the ring and Bayley says that she and Sasha are still best friends and they have nothing to worry about. They're interrupted by Lacey Evans who says that she's going to break Sasha's jaw and take the belt from Bayley before they're interrupted by Naomi, then by the returning Tamina. Tamina then take out Lacey and Naomi before Bayley and Sasha leave when she sets her sights on them as we go to commercial.
Drew Gulak w/Daniel Bryan vs Shinsuke Nakamura w/Cesaro & Sami Zayn
Shinsuke takes Drew down and drives his knees into Drew's ribs before Drew comes back and drops Shinsuke before Shinsuke sweeps Drew when he's on the apron. Shinsuke kicks Drew at ringside and tosses him back into the ring before Drew hits a dragon screw and focuses on the now injured leg of the former Intercontinental champion. Shinsuke comes back with a diving knee with the non-injured knee for two before hitting a sit-out facebuster. Daniel then pulls the ropes and Shinsuke gets caught in the ropes before Drew pins him with a jack knife cover.
Winner: Drew Gulak defeats Shinsuke Nakamura via pinfall to win Daniel Bryan a shot at Sami Zayn's Intercontinental Championship.
- We come back to a video package for Otis and Dolph Ziggler and the love triangle between them and Mandy Rose as well as Otis attacking The Miz and John Morrison as Dolph looked on from the ramp. We then go backstage to Dolph on the phone before he's rushed by Otis and Tucker before they're stopped by officials and personnel. Dolph and Otis then verbally agree to a match at Wrestlemania before Otis is taken away and we immediately go to Elias on the perch in the back of the arena playing a song for Baron Corbin. Corbin then attacks Elias from before hitting him with his staff and knocking him over the perch and down onto the floor as personnel rush to check on Elias as Corbin revels in what he's done as we go to commercial.
Alexa Bliss vs Asuka
Nikki Cross joins on commentary as Alexa lays into Asuka with forearms and dropkicks her for two. Alexa locks in a standing side headlock before Asuka drops her with a shoulder block and mocks Nikki. Alexa knocks Asuka off of the top turnbuckle and down into the floor before knocking her off of the apron and Asuka pulls Alexa down from the apron and down onto the floor before dancing and mocking Nikki as we go to commercial.
We come back to Asuka in control until Alexa traps her in the ropes and sends her down onto the apron before clotheslining her. Alexa hits a jumping meteora before missing a standing moonsault and Asuka rolls out of the ring. Alexa pulls Asuka off of the apron and drives her into the LED board before rolling her back into the ring for several two counts. They then counter each other until Alexa hits Asuka with a DDT for the pin and the win.
Winner: Alexa Bliss defeats Asuka via pinfall.
- We come back to Michael telling us about Rob Gronkowski hosting Wrestlemania and Roman Reigns versus Goldberg at Wrestlemania next weekend before we go to Roman Reigns versus Triple H from Wrestlemania 32 in which Roman overcomes the odds and walks out with the World Championship. After the match we go backstage to an interview with Triple H where he talks about Roman and Goldberg, two people that he's faced in his career. Triple H says that Roman has a bigger gas tank and his intensity strengthens over time and how he can withstand the initial onslaught by Goldberg.
