Smackdown Live: 8 pm EST
Show opens up and AJ Styles approaches Daniel Bryan and asks where Shane McMahon is. He says he needs to talk to Shane McMahon and he’s going to go out in front of the WWE Universe and handle what he needs to handle.
Styles music hits and he walks out to the ring. He gets on the mic and says that he is sick and tired of being messed with by Shane O’ and Daniel Bryan. You’d think that the greatest star of this generation would get the red carpet treatment on his way to WrestleMania. But that’s not what happened. He had to jump through hoops.
And Styles jumped through all those hoops, did everything that was required of him and earned his shot for the title on the grandest stage of them all. Despite all this, they still found a way to screw him. To the point where Styles doesn’t even have a match for WrestleMania.
Well, Styles is going to have a conversation with Shane McMahon about the future of his careers. That is, if he even has one. With that, Styles chucks the mic and leaves the ring.
Women’s Singles Match: Becky Lynch vs. Natalya
Bell sounds and Becky takes control early. They trade position and transition through some elementary holds and escapes. Commercial break.
Back again and Natalya hits a Michinoku Driver to Becky outside on the floor. Then back in the ring and Natalya puts on a rear chin lock. Becky stands back up and starts to make a comeback. She hits a Becksploder Suplex and then a couple transitions later Becky finds the Disarm Her. Natalya taps out.
Winner: Becky Lynch
Carmella shows up and attacks both Becky and Natalya after the match is over.
