Originally published at SmackDown Notes: Bryan added to WM, Logan Paul coming next week

On Friday Night SmackDown, several news matches were added to WrestleMania 37 along with the news that Logan Paul will be on next week’s program.

The main story of SmackDown centered around Adam Pearce’s decision regarding the Universal Championship Match at WrestleMania after Daniel Bryan made his case for another opportunity. In the end, Pearce announced it will be a triple threat match with Roman Reigns vs. Edge vs. Daniel Bryan on the second night of WrestleMania for the championship, as had been reported this past week.

The WrestleMania match between Seth Rollins and Cesaro was made official after Cesaro returned on Friday night’s show after being hit with two stomps by Rollins several weeks ago. Backstage, Rollins challenged Cesaro, who accepted the match after he attacked Rollins backstage and gave him the Cesaro Swing. It was later confirmed that the match will take place on night one on Saturday, April 10th.

During a segment involving Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, Zayn revealed that YouTube star Logan Paul will appear on his “red carpet ceremony” next week to unveil the trailer for his documentary. This follows several back-and-forth messages online between Zayn and Paul. After that reveal, Owens challenged Zayn to a match at WrestleMania with Zayn reluctantly agreeing to the match before being attacked and hit with a stunner. This match will take place on night two.

It was also revealed that another match between Big E. and Apollo Crews will take place on the second night of WrestleMania on Sunday, April 11th for the Intercontinental title. After being pinned at Fastlane, Crews got a pinfall on Big E. this week in a six-man tag where Crews teamed with Otis & Chad Gable defeating Big E. & The Street Profits.

During a rundown of the card, it was noted that Shane McMahon vs. Braun Strowman and New Day vs. AJ Styles & Omos for the Raw Tag Team Championship will both take place on night one.
