Hello and welcome to WWE Smackdown Results!
This should be a fun night with at least two important matches in the Go Home episode for WWE Fastlane, so let’s settle in and enjoy the fun.
For a change of pace, Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks were arguing backstage with Belair telling her accepting this match against Nia Jax.
Banks tried to play it off that it was because of Reginald and Belair lit into her about him being in her mind.
Banks replied that the only person on her mind in Jax and she’s going to beat her.
Belair commented on her having an inflated ego and said she knows she’s the Boss but she won’t come out to help her and Banks said she doesn’t expect her to.

Jax powered out of it to attempt a Samoan Drop, but Banks fought out of it with some elbows.
Banks locked in a standing Banks statement, so Jax tried to hit a sidewalk slam but Banks reversed it into a tornado DDT.
Banks locked in a Bank Statement and Belair and Baszler got into on the floor and Belair threw her into the ring where Baszler missed Banks with a knee and nailed Jax instead without the ref disqualifying her.
Belair threw Baszler to the floor and followed her out while Banks used a jackknife cover for the win.
Well, this was a good match until things went sideways in typical WWE style.
Backstage, Kayla Braxton asked Edge how it feels to have his first match on Smackdown in a decade.
He said it’s crazy, and some of the greatest moments of his career, like defeating the Undertaker for the WWE Championship, happened on this show.
He added that the worst moment of his career happened here as well when he had to relinquish his championship.
He went on to say he feels that Daniel Bryan deserves a fair shake at Fastlane and if he’s not out there he doesn’t think he does, meaning he’ll be why Bryan will probably lose at Fastlane.
Edge turned his attention to Jey and said he’s got a great future but not as long as he continues following in Roman Reigns’ shadow because that’ll lead to trouble and tonight he’s that trouble.
Backstage, Jax ripped into Baszler for ruining her title chance and said if she does this on Sunday and costs them the tag championship she’ll come for her.
She demanded to know what Baszler will do about it and Baszler said she’ll find Belair and get a match with her and she’ll kick her head off and give her the nastiEST night of her life.
