WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: NEW FACES, STYLES AND BRYAN AS A TAG TEAM, CHAMPIONS CHANGE BRANDS, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2018-04-17 21:59:00

We are back and Sanity is coming to Smackdown.

Daniel Bryan is asked by Renee Young about helping AJ Styles.  Daniel says he did it because he respects AJ.  For the three years that he was out, he made a list of people to motivate him.  AJ was at the top of the list.  Daniel says he wanted to prove that he was back.  Nakamura ruined that.  He says he is proud to fight side by side with AJ because he looks forward to fighting AJ again.

Renee stops and Colin Cassady shows up behind Daniel.  He asks if Daniel is what all the fuss is about.  Colin calls him little man and walks away.

Carmella makes her way to the ring and she shows off her title belt.

Carmella says everyone wants to jump in the Carmella Bandwagon now that she is champ but she says they weren't with her before she won the title so she does not care.  She says she is not just the Princess of Staten Island any more.  She is the moonwalking, trash talking, Princess of Smackdown.  She says she waited for the perfect opportunity.  She waited 287 long days.  She says she seized the moment and took her rightful spot at the top of the women's division. 

She reminds everyone that she beat Charlotte Flair.  She is one of the greatest in WWE History and she beat Charlotte on her own.  The woman who broke Asuka's streak . . . Carmella reminds us that she beat that woman.  All she had to do beat Charlotte was to make sure she was blinded by her ego.  Charlotte says in order to be the woman, you have beat the woman.  Carmella reminds us that she is the woman.  What she did last week was historic.  It will be the biggest moment in all of women's history.

Carmella calls for a tribute to her and we have a video package.

She says she is going to miss Frankie.  She had it for 287 days but 287 days is nothing compared to how long she is going to keep Cleopatra.  She says Mella is Money.

Charlotte Flair's music interrupts and she is on the stage.  Charlotte says it seems like your title reign is a lot like your memory . . . short.  Your highlight reel is missing some big pieces of history.  The only reason you had the briefcase was because of that chinless freak. You cashed in because of Billie Kay and Peyton Royce.  Charlotte says she knows the dirtiest player in the game and game respects game.  You capitalized on an opportunity and Charlotte congratulates her.

Charlotte says she has some words of wisdom.  It is much harder to stay on the top than to get to the top.  You have something of hers.  

Billie Kay and Peyton Royce make their way to the ring.  

Billie tells Charlotte this is pathetic.  You are blaming them for your failure?  Billie tells Peyton to do it.  Peyton does her Charlotte Flair impression.  Peyton acts like Charlotte is a giant baby.  

Billie says it was spot on and if she closed her eyes, she would think Charlotte was next to her.  Billie says you asked for magic last week and you got it.  The title disappeared from around your waist.

Peyton says that was a moment that will last forever.  It was all because of them.  Peyton says you are looking at the future and it is Iconic.

Charlotte takes off her ring robe and she goes after Billie and Peyton on the floor.  Billie and Peyton double team Charlotte and send her into the ringside barrier and then kick her.

Becky Lynch comes out and goes after Billie and Peyton.

We go to commercial.

We see that Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson are coming to Smackdown.

We are back and Sheamus and Cesaro say that they have been the standard of the Raw tag team division.  They ended the New Day's title reign.  They broke the Hardys.  Cesaro says that they heard about facing all of the teams on Smackdown.  They have a high level of competition, but not high enough because they are coming to Smackdown.

The New Day are in the back and Big E says that Sheamus sucks.  

Big E stops because he sees the immortal one . . . R Truth.  

Tye Dillinger shows up and he Big E asks if they have met before.  They do an elaborate greeting.

Truth says it is great that they are together on Raw.

Woods tells Truth it is Smackdown.

Truth says my bad and he says he will see them tomorrow.
