Quick Hits: WWE Smackdown Live 2.21.17
-Daniel Bryan welcomes out Naomi and the crowd still chants “You Deserve It” for some reason.
-Bryan says that him and Shane went over Naomi’s medical records and they know she can’t defend the Title in 30 days, so he asks her to relinquish the Title.
-Naomi tries giving an emotional speech but I’m just not buying it. Naomi says when she gets back everyone will FEEL THE GLOW.
-Out comes Alexa Bliss and she gives Naomi a glance as she walks up the ramp.
-Alexa says she is here to help Daniel Bryan make a decision on the Title. She says her arms and legs are working just fine and Bryan should give her the Title back.
-Bryan says he is not going to give Alexa the Title back, but he is going to give her the opportunity to win it back in a match against Becky Lynch, right now.
Smackdown Women’s Championship: Alexa Bliss vs Becky Lynch

-Alexa slams Becky down to the mat and drops some knees on her.
-Becky ducks a clothesline and hits a suplex into commercial.

-Mickie James comes out to congratulate Alexa. She then tries to jump Becky but Becky fights her off.
WINNER and NEW Smackdown Women’s Champion: Alexa Bliss- Okay match. The Title should be back on Alexa. I just don’t know who she faces at Wrestlemania if Nikki is in that mixed tag match.
The Fashion Police vs American Alpha
-I don’t know if it is the Fashion Police or Breezango now. Who knows.
-Breeze and Fandango jump American Alpha going into the ring.

-Backstage, Natalya throws Nikki into Maryse. BECAUSE WE NEED TO BE REMINDED ABOUT THAT SHITTY MIXED TAG MATCH.
-Nikki throws Natalya into a mirror. Ouch.
-Nikki counters a Sharpshooter into a STF. But Maryse comes out with a lead pipe and beats down Nikki with it. Miz comes to get her out. Natalya pins Nikki for the win.
WINNER: Natalya- Sigh, we just had to be reminded about that shitty mixed tag match that NO ONE wants to see. The match itself was fun and both women put Grade A effort into it.
Battle Royal To Determine The #1 Contender For The WWE Title
-Your participants: Dean Ambrose, The Miz, AJ Styles, Luke Harper, John Cena, Dolph Ziggler, Apollo Crews, Baron Corbin, Kalisto and Mojo Rawley.
-Kalisto has about as good a chance to win this thing as I do to land Taylor Swift as my girlfriend.
-We have brawling for nothing but the first five minutes going into commercial.
-Mojo is immiediately eliminated back from break. Kalisto and Ziggler are on the apron. Ziggler catches Kalisto with a superkick to eliminate him.
-Crews eliminates Ziggler while he is on the apron,
-Ziggler attacks Kalisto on the outside with a chair. This distracts Crews, and Corbin dumps him. Crews then chases Ziggler away with the chair.
-Miz mocks Daniel Bryan with his dropkicks and he does the YES Kicks to Cena, but Cena ducks the last one and eliminates Miz.
-Cena goes for the Five Knuckle Shuffle on Styles, but Cena walks right into the End of Days from Corbin. But Corbin is eliminated by Ambrose. Corbin pulls Ambrose out and hits the End of Days outside the ring.
-Miz comes in from behind and eliminates Cena. So this really is a thing.
-Ambrose, Harper and Styles all end up on the apron. Harper eventually kicks Ambrose in the gut and Ambrose falls off the apron.
-Harper and Styles both go out “at the same time.” Even though it was clear that Styles hit first. The refs argue before Daniel Bryan comes out and declares it a draw. Harper hits a clothesline on Styles after. Bray Wyatt appears on the screen with Randy Orton and laughs.
WINNER: DRAW- Man, if I was in the live crowd I’d be pissed. There were definite Harper chants there which was good. At least Daniel Bryan’s quads held up going to the ring.
