Daniel Bryan Wants A Universal Championship Rematch… TONIGHT

  • Bryan comes out with a steel chair and reminds us that Reigns tapped out, which has never happened before. He says that in a perfect world he would be Universal Champion but he’s not because of Edge. Bryan says he’s tired of doing things the right way and standing on the sidelines.
  • Bryan requests a Universal Championship rematch tonight and says he refuses to leave till he gets it. He sits in the steel chair and we cut to commercial. Bryan is still sitting when we cut back and eventually Adam Pearce comes out and says he can’t give him a rematch tonight.
  • Pearce says the referee’s decision is final and hence his next Universal Championship defence will be against Edge. Bryan suggests he fight whoever wins Edge/Roman immediately after but Pearce declines. Bryan reminds him that he had to do exactly that at Elimination Chamber.
  • Bryan then suggests that Edge vs Roman happens on night 1 with the winner facing him on night 2 before Edge interrupts. Edge berates Bryan for wanting to ‘pick the bones’ at WrestleMania, telling Bryan he doesn’t deserve the match and calling him a “son of a b*tch.”
  • Bryan attacks Edge out of anger but Edge takes him down with a Spear. Edge picks up Bryan’s chair and hits him with it before leaving.
  • After a commercial break, we see Roman Reigns watching the segment backstage who tells Heyman & Uso to bring Adam Pearce to him.

Seth Rollins vs Shinsuke Nakamura

  • During Rollins’ entrance, we see a recap of Cesaro’s 22-time Swing of him a few weeks ago. Both men battle for control early on with Nakamura hitting a knee drop on the apron and rolling Rollins back in the ring before we cut to commercial.
  • We cut back to Rollins having regained control over Shinsuke after hitting him with a series of stiff forearm strikes. Nakamura creates an opening with a single leg dropkick kick before following up with slingshot german suplex for a near-fall.
  • Nakamura tries for an elevated knee strike to Rollins’ chest but Rollins dodges and hits a springboard knee strike into a falcon arrow for a near-fall of his own. Nakamura hits the Landslide for another near-fall before attempting the Kinshasa but Rollins dodges.
  • Nakamura locks in the cross armbreaker before transitioning into a triangle armbar, which Rollins counters into a powerbomb. Rollins hits The Stomp to pick up the win. Rollins goes for another Stomp after the match but Cesaro makes the save, clearing Rollins from the ring.
  • After a commercial break, Kayla tries to ask Seth if he was surprised that Cesaro tried to Swing him again. Seth says he’s going to fulfil his word and challenges Cesaro to a match at WrestleMania. Cesaro appears and Swings Rollins around before accepting the challenge.

Winner: Seth Rollins via Pinfall in 9:41

Roman Reigns Confronts Roman Reigns

  • Heyman introduces Pearce and starts thanking him for not granting Bryan a rematch but Reigns gets in his face. Reigns says he’s only defending the title once at WrestleMania and Pearce answers back by saying everyone will have his decision at the end of the night.

Big E & The Street Profits vs Apollo Crews & Alpha Academy

  • Big E vs Apollo Crews for the IC title is confirmed for night 2 of WrestleMania 37 during the entrances. Ford dodges Otis early on but the latter eventually catches him witha heavy strike before tagging in Gable. Gable and the heels work over Ford’s left leg until Ford gets a hot tag on Big E.
  • Big E takes everyone down with german and belly-to-belly suplexes before going for the Big Ending but Gable escapes. Big E hits a uranage and tries for a pin but Crews breaks it up. Everyone hits moves on everyone, ending with Ford hitting a tope con hilo to take out Alpha Academy.
  • Crews hits the Olympic Slam on Big E to pick up the win.

The KO Show With Sami Zayn

  • Owens says he has a question for Sami before telling him to come out. Sami says he knows the question and that it’s if he’s sorry for what he did last week and he is. Owens says that wasn’t his question but Zayn interrupts again and says he can still be a part of the documentary.
  • Zayn reveals that he will have a red carpet premiere for his documentary trailer next week and that Logan Paul will be there as his guest of honour. Owens snaps and asks for a match with Zayn one-on-one at WrestleMania and Sami accepts in the heat of the moment. Owens then beats up Zayn, taking him down with a Stunner before leaving.

Bianca Belair vs Natalya

  • Kayla asks why Bianca’s reaction to Sasha’s slap at Fastlane was so muted. Bianca says Sasha wouldn’t have made it to WrestleMania if she retaliated and she was the big person there so she could be the bigger person when she beats Banks and becomes SmackDown Women’s Champion.
  • Bianca hits a dropkick on Natalya early on to take control. Belair continues to dominate over Natalya, getting a two-count from a roll-up before hitting a slam. She goes to the top rope but Sasha Banks makes her way to the arena.
  • Whilst the referee is distracted, Tamina superkicks Bianca on the apron before we cut to commercial. We cut back to Sasha joining commentary and Natalya maintaining her control, getting a two-count off of a hurricanrana. Belair creates an opening with a spinebuster, getting a near-fall followed up by a standing moonsault.
  • Natalya hits the discus lariat for a near-fall which causes Bianca to fall to the outside. Sasha gets off commentary to taunt her and Bianca takes her down with a forearm strike. Bianca hits another on Natalya before following up with the KOD to pick up the win.
  • Sasha attacks Bianca after the match, hitting her with a backstabber to close the segment.
