Hello and welcome to WWE Smackdown Results!
This should be a fun show as it’s the Go Home Episode for WrestleMania Backlash.
Let’s get to the action!
Jey Uso welcomed us to Smackdown and he said he’s called the Right Hand Man, Main Event Jey Uso and introduced Roman Reigns for more quality family time.
Jimmy came out, interrupting him, and he challenged Jey to rejoin him after calling him out.
Reigns asked if he thinks he can’t beat Cesaro, and Jimmy said he doesn’t think he can beat Cesaro.
Reigns asked him if he can fill his shoes and Jimmy said if he and Jey win the tag titles then they’re the head of the table. This set Reigns off on a tirade about his accomplishments and responsibility.
Reigns challenged him to do what he does and defend the Universal Championship against Cesaro tonight, then asked if he can beat Cesaro.
Jimmy called out Cesaro for a match and then asked Reigns is that was good.
Cesaro came out and accepted Jimmy’s challenge the promised he’ll beat Jimmy and Reigns.

Ziggler countered Rey’s athleticism early on with his quick thinking and eventually slowed him down with a couple of head locks and shoulder blocks.
Rey flipped Ziggler to the floor and hit a baseball slide splash as we headed to commercial
Back from commercial, they’re back in the ring Ziggler regained control after ducking a crossbody by Rey off the ropes.
Rey’s heart proved to be as giant as ever as he continued to fight back and nearly scored a pinfall after a kick to Ziggler’s face.
Ziggler dodged a 619 to hit a Famouser, but Rey kicked out. Rey then ran into a superkick when he went for a second 619 attempt, but Rey grabbed the rope to break the pin.
Rey rolled Ziggler up in a small package to counter a body slam attempt to sneak in a second win in a row.
Is it just WWE Smackdown Results, or does WWE feel like they’re struggling creatively? At least Tamina finally won a championship.
