Edge kicked off SmackDown and talked about how his Universal Title match at WrestleMania got derailed by people like Daniel Bryan and Jey Uso. The Superstar Rated-R said he didn’t want to apologize before adding that this time he could beat Roman Reigns.
Edge showed us a moment from this year’s WrestleMania and said he knew he had gout on Roman. The WWE Hall of Fame has said he’s confident he’s going to be the Universal Champion shortly before he leaves.
Backstage in Roman Reigns’ locker room, Jimmy Uso told Paul Heyman he was going to take out Edge before the feud escalated.
Shinsuke Nakamura & Big E vs. Baron Corbin & Apollo Crews at SmackDown
Apollo and Shinsuke kicked off the game and Crews got the first out before Nakamura sent him around the corner and braced for a knee kick to the stomach. Big E entered and continued the assault on the champion, securing a close fall.
Corbin got the tag but was reluctant to step into the ring before being pushed out of the apron. Outside the ring, Corbin threw Big E over the barricades and into the timekeeper’s area.
Returning after a break from SmackDown, Big E was isolated in the ring before seeing on Titantron that Baron Corbin’s car was being towed. Corbin was devastated after noticing him and Big E took advantage of the distraction and took the victory.
Result: Shinsuke Nakamura & Big E won. Baron Corbin and Apollo crews
Bayley was next and glowed over her win last week before calling Bianca weak. She said the pressure of being the SmackDown Women’s Champion is weighing on Bianca and could cause her to lose the title shortly before the champion shows up in the ring at SmackDown.
