WWE Smackdown Results and Highlights: Championship match announced, Daniel Bryan joins Championship match, Logan Paul for next week – 26th March 2021 – – WWE SmackDown Full Results and Highlights: SmackDown kicks off with a video review of the WWE Universal Championship at WWE Fastlane. There, Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan were struck down by the Special Enforcer Edge. Afterwards Roman Reigns won the match.
Daniel Bryan climbs into the ring with a steel chair. Bryan talks about the truth that everyone has seen. Everyone saw Roman give up. Roman never gave up in his entire career. Last week he said he’d rather die than give up on someone like him. Good news, Roman Reigns is alive and Roman Reigns has given up on Daniel Bryan. In a perfect world, that would mean that he would stand in that ring as the Universal Champion. “I would stand in this ring knowing I was going to the WrestleMania main event.
None of these things are true. And why? Because when I was forcing Roman Reigns to give up, Edge attacked me with a steel chair. Bryan is tired of being on the sidelines. “I deserved the title match. I deserved the chance to be in the WrestleMania Main Event and I’m ready to deserve it again.”
Bryan is not asking for a seat in the main event. “I want a rematch against Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship tonight. I won’t leave this ring until I get what I want!” Bryan sits down on the chair he brought with him and looks at the stage. It goes into the first commercial break.
Back at the ThunderDome: Daniel Bryan is still in the ring. Adam Pearce comes out saying he can’t give Bryan a rematch tonight. Bryan asks if Adam saw him get Reigns to surrender. Pearce declares that the Referee’s decision is final. Reigns is the Universal Champion and his next title defense will be against Edge at WrestleMania.
Bryan proposes to play against the winner of the match, but Pearce reminds Bryan what it is like to have to play two title matches in a row.
Bryan then remembers his participation in the Elimination Chamber Match and how he had to face Reigns immediately afterwards. However, Bryan has an idea, since this year’s WrestleMania takes place on two nights, Edge will compete against Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship on the first night and Bryan against the winner of the match on the second night.
The music from Edge sounds and the rated R superstar makes his way to the ring. Edge watched Bryan how selfless was for the past month. “You say that this could be your last match. Every match is my last match. This is my dream and you want to take it away from me.” Edge recalls his Royal Rumble win, while Bryan lost twice to Reigns. “I won the Royal Rumble. You don’t deserve the match at WrestleMania, you son of a B * tch!”
Bryan responds with a double leg take down and a few punches until Edge does a spear. Edge then hits Bryan with the steel chair and then leaves the ring.
Backstage: Reigns watches the events with Paul Heyman and Jey Uso. Both are supposed to get Adam Pearce and Jey can use force if need be.
Seth Rollins def. Shinsuke Nakamura after the stomp
After the match: Rollins attacks Nakamura and wants to do another stomp, but Cesaro storms into the ring and hits Rollins with a gutwrench suplex and a few punches before the European uppercut follows. This is to be followed by the Giant Swing, but Rollins can free himself and withdraw. Cesaro calls out: “Coward!” and tells Rollins to return to the ring.
Backstage: Paul Heyman is back with Adam Pearce and Reigns makes it very clear that he will only defend his title in one evening at this year’s WrestleMania. Pearce understands Reign’s point of view, but he has other things to consider. At the end of the evening, Pearce will announce his decision.
Backstage: Seth Rollins is pretty upset in an interview with Kayla Braxton. He’s tired of being embarrassed by Cesaro over and over again. If Cesaro Manns is enough to face him at WrestleMania, let him accept his challenge. Rollins will teach Cesaro a lesson in respect and never let him beat him up again. Suddenly Cesaro shows up. He pushes Rollins against a road case and then lets the Giant Swing follow. Cesaro accepts Rollins’ challenge.
Confirmed for the second WrestleMania 37 night:
WWE Intercontinental Championship
Big E (c) vs. Apollo Crews
Six-Man Tag Team Match
Apollo Crews, Chad Gable & Otis Dozovic defeated Big E, Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins after the Olympic Slam of crews against Big E
Backstage: Edge confronts Adam Pearce and wants to know if Daniel Bryan gets what he wants. Edge reminds Adam that he won the Royal Rumble and lost Bryan twice to Reigns. Pearce says he doesn’t make the decisions for anyone, but for WWE. Afterwards he will make a decision. Edge hopes Pearce makes the right decision, otherwise …
Kevin Owens is in the ring for a new edition of his KO show. Owens talks about how he got involved in Sami’s conspiracy theories and in return demanded that Sami back him up. But in the past week he had to take a violent kick from Sami in the head. Therefore, only one person can answer his questions. Owens tells Sami Zayn to come out.
Sami gets into the ring and apologizes for the action from the previous week, because all this conspiracy stuff has attacked his psyche. Owens doesn’t want an answer to that.
Sami thinks she’s not finished yet. The most important question is whether Kevin Owens can still be a part of his documentary, which will premiere on the red carpet next week and expose the conspiracy against him. The answer is yes! YouTuber Logan Paul is also involved in his documentary. He is his guest of honor.
Owens is not interested in the documentation of Sami, or Logan Paul, or whether he is sorry or not. Sami continues, claiming that Owens owes him an apology.
Kevin says the only reason he lets Sami stand in his ring without beating him senseless is because he needs an answer to his question. “You versus me at WrestleMania? Yes or No?” Sami thinks Kevin is making a big mistake because they should work together. Owens demands an answer. Sami replies with: “Yes”.
Kevin Owens is happy because now he can put Sami out of action. Owens beats Sami and finally gives him a kick and the stunner.
Backstage: Daniel Bryan and Adam Pearce face each other. Bryan knows how Adam is feeling right now, since he was in the same position as him back then. However, he knows that Adam knows exactly what the right decision is and he has to make it.
Backstage: Bianca Belair talks about “The Boss” in an interview with Kayla Braxton. Belair claims to be bigger and stronger than Sasha and she could have hit back, but then Sasha wouldn’t have made it to WrestleMania. She wants to show everyone what she can do with her reign as a champion. She’s about to face Natalya, and parents better keep their kids from seeing what she’s going to do to Nattie.
Bianca Belair defeated Natalya (w / Tamina) after the KOD – during the match, Sasha Banks came out to sit down with the commentators, Tamina took advantage of the distraction and kicked Belair from the apron – at the end of the match, Sasha was slapped by Bianca
after the match: Sasha knocks Bianca down with a lungblower.
Backstage: Edge pays Roman Reigns a visit. Reigns is impressed, after all, you need eggs to just walk in here. However, he would let the pit bull (Jey Uso) off the leash if Edge didn’t explain why he’s here. Edge claims that Bryan wants to steal the limelight from them and that Reigns shouldn’t let that happen.
Video countdown: Only 15 to WrestleMania. The commentators go through the WrestleMania 37 match card.
Pop-Up Video: Rey Mysterio (w / Dominik) thought he had achieved it all in WWE, but the ultimate achievement would be winning the Tag Team titles with his son. It would be great as a competitor and as a father.
Rey Mysterio (w / Dominik Mysterio) defeated Dolph Ziggler (w / Robert Roode) after a 619 and the springboard leg drop – after Ziggler Rey had missed a power bomb over the ring barrier, Dominik wanted to check on his father, but Ziggler stretched Dominik down with a super kick, a little later Roode wanted to intervene in the match, but Dominik took care of him.
Adam Pearce makes his way to the ring. Then Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman and Jey Uso go into the ring. It goes into the last commercial break.
Confirmed for WWE SmackDown next week: The red carpet premiere of the documentary by Sami Zayn with special guest: Logan Paul. Back at the WWE ThunderDome: Roman Reigns and Adam Pearce are in the ring. Then Edge and Daniel Bryan go into the ring one after the other.
Adam thanks them for joining him in the ring. He can understand everyone’s worries. The concerns everyone has about the scenarios make sense. What Daniel Bryan is saying makes sense. He’s right when he thinks there is a double standard and he’s right that he deserves another chance for the title. At the same time Pearce also understands Reigns, because he only wants to risk his title once at WrestleMania. So Pearce has now made a decision. All three compete against each other at WrestleMania 37 in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Universal Championship.
Bryan attacks Edge right after the announcement. Edge takes a dropkick before Reigns hits Bryan with a Superman punch. Reigns attacks Bryan with his forearm. Then Reigns asks Jey for a chair and gets it. Reigns tries to use the chair against Bryan, but the Tribal Chief takes a spear from Edge. Jey storms into the ring with another chair and wants to attack Edge with it, but he evades and also knocks Jey down with a spear.
Edge grabs a steel chair and takes turns pounding Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan with it. Edge places the heads of Reigns and Bryan on a chair and gets another chair, as he probably wants to show a One Man Conchairto, but Jey returns to the ring.
Edge uses the chair he brought with him against Jey. Reigns withdraws from the ring and Bryan wants to leave the ring too, but Edge prevents Bryan from doing so and hits an elbow drop. Again he lays Bryan’s head on the chair for the One Man Conchairto, but WWE officials are now storming into the ring.
Edge knocks down two officials with the chair. Then he sits down on the chair in the ring and looks angrily into the camera. That ends the show.
