WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: KOFI'S CELEBRATION, SAMI PULLS A LACEY, TAG TITLE MATCH TIMES TWO, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2019-04-09 21:59:00

We are back with a look back at the Miz versus Shane McMahon match from Sunday.

Shane says we have had an amazing night on Smackdown and it will continue next week with the Superstar Shake Up.  There were some huge moments at Wrestlemania.  Seth Rollins won the Universal Championship.  Daniel Bryan became the WWE Champion.  Becky Lynch won the Raw and Smackdown Women's Title. 

Why did all of those people pack Met Life Stadium?  Why did people tune in all over the world?  They wanted to see one match.  They wanted to see Shane McMahon defeat the Miz.  And he did it.  Now that the Miz is in his rear view mirror.  Shane says Miz is not here because he is tending to his dad.  Shane says that George had the audacity to get into this ring.  Shane says he could not believe it and George aggressively put his hands up and then Shane thought he was serious.  Then George hit him in his eye.  Shane says he had no other choice than to defend himself.  That is why Shane did what he did to George.  They got exactly what they had coming to them.

Shane says they proved that he is what he says he is . . . the Best in the World.  While we are talking about Best in the World, Shane wants Greg to give him the proper introduction and he wants to know why Greg is not as emphatic with the introduction.  Greg says that he was threatened by fans if he called Shane the Best in the World.  Shane says this is the best city in the world.  Do you know why?  The best in the world lives here.  Shane wants Greg he never has to worry about these people doing anything to you.  You have to worry about the one standing next to you.  Shane tells Greg to do it right.

Shane pulls Greg by the tie and tells him that he is choking as Greg continues the introduction.  They work their way up to the stage and Shane is impressed.

We take a look at Elias being interrupted by the Undertaker on Raw.

We are back and Becky Lynch makes her way to the ring.

Becky says what a week.  On Sunday, she did exactly what she said she would do in the main event of Wrestlemania.  She became the first women's dual champ.  She says she thinks that sounds like cause for celebration.  That is why she tried to do on Monday night.  Let's see what happened and we take a look at Lacey Evans going to her invisible border and punches Becky.  We see the brawl between the two.

Becky says Lacey Evans finally decided to get her gloves dirty and punch her.  That punch reminds Becky that she is holding two targets.  Regardless of the Superstar Shake Up, as long as she has the titles, she is on both show.  She challenges everyone who wants to come after her.  Becky says if she has to beat everyone in the locker room and sleep with one eye open for the rest of her career, she will.  Becky says she has done through hell to get here and you will have to get through a red headed devil to take the titles from her.
