Here are the match results, my match ratings and review for The Smackdown After Wrestlemania.
The Usos defeated The New Day
Naomi defeated Natalya
United States Championship Number One Contendership Triple Threat Match
Randy Orton defeated Bobby Roode and Rusev
AJ Styles vs Daniel Bryan was stopped due to interference
Match Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Shane McMahon kicked off Smackdown, he revealed who would be replacing Daniel Bryan as GM since he has returned to the ring full time and it was Paige. I guess it is worth giving her a try as a GM, she sucked as the manager of Absolution so surely she can’t be worse in this role ? The Usos and The New Day had yet another match. Renee got an interview with Nakamura, she asked him why he attacked AJ after their match at Mania and his response was perfect “Sorry No Speak English”. The Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair talked about her victory over Asuka at Wrestlemania she was then interrupted by Peyton Royce and Billie Kay. After a verbal assault the new call ups from NXT attacked Charlotte and even though Flair fought off the duo they were too much for Charlotte, they beat the hell out of the champ and left her laid out. Of course this was obviously the perfect opportunity for Carmella to cash in and that is exactly what happened. Why did it take the Ref so long to understand Carmella ? But hey there is a new Smackdown Women’s Champion. So that is why Asuka lost at Mania so they could do that. The new United States Champion Jinder Mahal was sat at ringside for the United States Championship Number One Contender Triple Threat Match between Bobby Roode, Rusev and Randy Orton. After Orton won he and Mahal stared at each other and just like everyone in the crowd I am not at all interested in seeing these two fight for a title yet again. When will they just give the fans what they want and give Rusev a much needed push ? A Wrestlemania Main Event worthy match was the Main Event of Smackdown as the WWE Champion AJ Styles went one on one with the returning Daniel Bryan for the first time in WWE. I’m sure many wondered why they would give this away on an episode of Smackdown like I did myself. But I’m not complaining it was amazing until Nakamura ruined everything. A new GM, A New Women’s Champion, Billie Kay & Peyton Royce called up from NXT and Daniel Bryan vs AJ Styles how can anyone say this was not a very good episode of Smackdown.
