Here is your post-SmackDown Fight Size Update for Friday, March 5, 2021.
- Daniel Bryan kicked off SmackDown by hyping his Steel Cage match with Jey Uso. If Bryan wins, he gets another shot at Roman Reigns' Universal Championship at Fastlane.
Bryan talked about his love for wrestling and how he is more ambitious than he thought. Reigns argued that Bryan doesn't love wrestling, but rather needs it. He on the other hand could do whatever he wants but is here because everyone else relies on him.
Uso tried to attack Bryan but was thwarted and thrown out of the ring.
- After King Corbin refused to team up with Sami Zayn versus the Street Profits, the two split off and had singles matches. Corbin defeated Montez Ford, while Zayn lost to Angelo Dawkins via distraction roll-up.
In exclusive footage from Sami Zayn’s own documentary team, The Master Strategist is left in disbelief following the supposed rat that infiltrated his documentary team. The videographer that Sami attacked at ringside after his match was played by recent WWE signee Blake Christian.
