By: Dave LeClair

SmackDown aired live from Hershey, PA in front of a sellout crowd. Leading into the show, the WWE pushed a McIntyre vs. Moss match, a Reigns-Lesnar contract signing, and an appearance by new Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn.

Match Results:

  • New Day (Kofi Kingston and Big E) defeated Los Lotharios
  • Xia Li defeated Natalya in her main roster debut

As reported earlier today, the SmackDown commentators confirmed that Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns will meet during night two of WrestleMania and that it’ll be a title unification match. The WWE has started calling it the “Biggest WrestleMania Match of All Time.”

In other news, Michael Cole is the greatest commentator of all time, according to Pat McAfee. The aforementioned greatest commentator opened the show by interviewing Ronda Rousey and he asked why she came back to the WWE. Rousey wanted to set an example for her daughter, which is why she came back.

As Sonya was involved in attacking Ronda Rousey, Adam Pierce announced that Deville and Rousey would meet in a one-on-one match on the 3/4 episode of SmackDown.

Sam Roberts is doing backstage interviews on SmackDown now, and Pat McAfee isn’t happy about it. His first interview was The Usos.

Xia Li made her SmackDown in-ring debut against Natalya, which she actually won.
