Quick Hits: WWE Smackdown Live 3.21.17
-AJ Styles is out to start the show. He’s happy because he beat the hell out of Shane McMahon last week.
-Styles said he isn’t sorry for what he did to Shane last week.
-Styles officially accepted Shane’s challenge at Wrestlemania. It was met with a handful of boos.
-Styles said without him, Smackdown plummets and its social media crashes.
-AJ said he would meet Shane in the back again, and it could go from bad to phenomenally worse.
Smackdown Tag Team Championship: American Alpha (c) vs The Usos
-I hate typing about Uso matches. I never know who is in the ring and the announcers are never much help.
-Alpha hits double dropkicks the clothesline the other Uso out of the ring into commercial.
-Back from break and you guessed it, the Usos are in control! Gable goes for the tag but Jordan gets pulled off the apron.
-Jordan gets the hot tag and he catches one of the Usos off the top and hits a belly-to-belly suplex.
-Usos each hit super kicks on American Alpha then a splash on Gable but Gable kicks out at two.
-They go for a double splash but Jordan knocks one off the top rope. Gable hits a belly-to-belly off the top rope then the bulldog from the top but Gable gets pulled out of the ring.
-Gable hits a moonsault to the outside then gets tossed over the barricade.
-Jordan goes back into the ring but Jimmy Uso crotches Jordan in the ropes. Jey hits a superkick and the Usos are new Champs.
WINNERS and NEW Smackdown Tag Team Champions: The Usos- Fun final few minutes to the match that was quite basic before hand. The WWE did nothing with American Alpha since winning the Title so the crowd was behind the Usos which was kind of shitty.
-A “Lost” Episode of Total Bellas aired. Miz is playing Nikki and Brie I believe and talks about Cena proposing. Miz comes out dressed as Cena. He says Brie broke the house rule of singing and is on DOUBLE SECRET PROBATION. MizCena teases popping the question, but then pops a balloon that says “Question.” I got a chuckle out of that.
Baron Corbin vs Randy Orton
-Orton goes for the early RKO but Corbin escapes.
-Corbin gets control before the commercial.
-Corbin charges at Orton in the corner but Orton catches him with a boot. Orton hits a powerslam.
-Orton goes for the DDT but Corbin escapes to the outside. Orton slams him face first into the steps then hits the DDT in the ring.
-Corbin counters a RKO attempt and hits the Deep Six for two.
-Corbin goes for a Spear on the outside but Orton jumps on the apron and Corbin goes into the steps.
-Dean Ambrose appears by the ramp on a forklift to distract Corbin. Orton then hits the RKO for the win.
WINNER: Randy Orton- Average match. I’m assuming that the WWE wants to save this match for an actual PPV down the line so the distraction finish works.
-After the match, Ambrose accepts Corbin’s match at Wrestlemania then hits the Dirty Deeds on Corbin.
-Randy Orton is interviewed backstage. Suddenly the lights start flickering then go out, and a bunch of guys in sheep match attack Orton. Bray appears and said Sister Abigail now lives inside of him. He then sings “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands.” You know they had a chance to steer away from the over the top spooky stuff and they didn’t.
John Cena vs Fandango
-OH SHIT ITS LANCE CATAMARAN VS CHETT CHETTERFIELD!!!
-Tyler Breeze comes out dressed in Nikki Bella gear. He’s still gorgeous in it.
-Cena gets fashion tickets for wearing jorts in 2017.
-Nikki Bella comes out. Fandango eats the Five Moves of Doom. Nikki spears Breeze. They hit Double AAs then STFs for the win.
WINNER: John Cena
Becky Lynch vs Carmella
-A minute into the match Natalya comes in and takes out Carmella. Out comes Mickie James then Alexa Bliss and all hell breaks loose. Alexa Bliss ends up standing tall at the end.
-More Miz and Maryse Total Bellas spoofs. They give a tour of the house. MizCena says he got NikkiMaryse a diamond, Dallas Page Yoga DVD SET! Then a ring, a WWE TOY RING! In the bedroom, MizCena says they should tie the knot. MizCena tries tying his shoes but fails. These skits are great.
-Shane McMahon is out. Shane says AJ is always acting tough when Shane isn’t around. He said either AJ is coming out there or he is going to look for him back there.
-AJ makes the slow walk to the ring. AJ tells Shane to calm down. AJ says he is going to apologize to Shane.
-Shane attacks Styles as he comes into the ring and throws his awful punches.
-Styles slammed Shane into the barricade. Shane backdrops Styles then jumps from the top and through the table onto AJ.
OVERALL: The Miz/Maryse segments were gold. Watch them. The tag title match was fun. AJ Styles trying to sell fear of Shane McMahon, and his punches, was hilarious. The Bray Wyatt/Randy Orton stuff was dumb. They needed to steer clear of the hokie pokie stuff. Not a bad show overall though.
