Edge Sends A Warning To Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan

  • We see a recap of Bryan being added to the Universal Championship match at WrestleMania last week before Edge makes his way to the ring. He says the chaos of last week didn’t need to happen because Bryan has created a speedbump on his road to WrestleMania.
  • Edge says if anyone should understand where he was coming from, it should be Daniel due to their parallels of their injury and retirements. Edge says that neither of the suggestions Bryan made last week were heroic and he simply got outplayed.
  • Edge says he has to thank Daniel though because he finally saw ‘The Rated-R Superstar’. He admits he snapped at Fastlane and last week because he finally woke up. Edge says he was this close from hitting the conchairto and next time, he won’t hesitate.
  • Backstage, we see Kayla Braxton ask Edge for his thoughts on the Street Fight. Edge says he doesn’t feel bad that Daniel might get hurt and the same goes if Bryan is unable to compete at WrestleMania. In fact, it’ll feel good.

Alpha Academy & Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode vs The Street Profits & Rey and Dominik Mysterio

  • Gable and Otis are in the ring. Gable says he’s transformed Otis over the last few months using his brains and they’ll outclass their own partners tonight – Roode & Ziggler before winning the SmackDown Tag Team Championship next week.
  • Dominik hits an early tornado DDT on Ziggler for a near-fall before the faces throw all the heels to the outside. All four hit diving offence to the outside before we cut to commercial. We cut back to Rey getting a hot tag off to Dawkins who takes down everyone on the opposing team with exploder suplexes.
  • Otis tags in and manages to get a two-count off a stiff strike to Dawkins. The heels isolate Dawkins in their corner until the latter creates an opening with a clothesline to tag in Ford who hits an elevated uranage into a standing moonsault for a two-count.
  • Ford gets a two-count off a roll-up before following up with a enziguri. He tries for From The Heavens but Gable dodges. Gable hits Chaos Theory before Otis follows up with his middle rope splash to pick up the win.

Winners: Alpha Academy and Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode via Pinfall in 9:35

Paul Heyman Inserts A Hold-Harmless Clause In Tonight’s Street Fight

Seth Rollins And Cesaro Go Face-To-Face Ahead Of WrestleMania

  • Corey Graves asks Cesaro if his match with Rollins if this’ll be the breakthrough moment he’s been waiting for. Cesaro says he will not fail at WrestleMania because there’s something different in the air… “swing is in the air”.
  • Graves then asks Rollins if Cesaro swinging him was a blemish on his career. Rollins says Graves and Cesaro are colluding to make him look bad but he’s not gonna let them get to him. Rollins says he’s up there with WrestleMania legends like Hogan and The Rock because of moments like him cashing in at WrestleMania 31.
  • Graves asks Cesaro if he has what it takes to defeat Rollins. Cesaro says that not only can he beat Rollins at WrestleMania, he can embrass him. Rollins reminds the two that he is unshakeable but Cesaro says he isn’t ‘unswingable’.
  • Rollins orders Graves out of the ring before telling his opponent that he’s on a completely different level to Cesaro. Rollins says Cesaro will only have him himself to blame when he loses but he’s not even going to let him get to WrestleMania before Cesaro tells him to take a swing. Rollins feigns a punch before exiting the ring.

Shayna Baszler vs Natalya

  • Sami asks Logan for his thoughts who says it’s a lot to take in and compelling, but Kevin Owens confronted him in the lockerroom. Logan says that Owens said Sami is delusional before Sami interrupts. Sami says he doesn’t care what Owens thinks and he doesn’t want Owens opinion, he wants Logan’s.
  • Logan starts to critique it but Kevin Owens appears and hits a Stunner. He leaves via the entrance ramp but not before pushing Logan Paul out of the way all the while.

Carmella vs Bianca Belair
