WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: THE 'DATE' OF THE 'CENTURY', HULK HOGAN, BAYLEY VERSUS CARMELLA, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2020-02-14 21:58:00

We are in Vancouver, British Columbia and your announcers are Michael Cole and Corey Graves.

We see Otis Dozovic and Mandy Rose in split screen getting ready for their big date.

We go to the stage for a Moment of Bliss with Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross with their coffee.

Alexa welcomes everyone to the first Moment of Bliss of 2020 and Nikki wishes everyone a Happy Valentine's Day.  

Nikki wants to talk about celebrity crushes and Nikki asks Alexa to mention hers.  Nikki interrupts and says that it is Brad Pitt.  Alexa says that is who she was going to say.  Alexa asks Nikki and Nikki tells Alexa not to be naughty.  

Alexa brings out her guest, Carmella.  

Alexa congratulates Carmella for her win over herself and two others.  Alexa says some might call the win surprising because we haven't heard much from her lately.  Carmella says she will surprise Bayley and everyone and become a two time champion.  

Alexa mentions the online feud between Bayley and Carmella.  Carmella mentions that her and Bayley used to be friends.  Alexa asks what happened.  Carmella says Sasha Banks happened.  Ever since Sasha came back, Bayley has been a completely different person.  She is trashing the women's division.  They used to be friends and Bayley doesn't want to acknowledge it.

Bayley interrupts and she makes her way to the stage.  

Bayley tells Carmella that is enough and this is getting annoying.  Bayley says this is not about Sasha.  It is about you.  Ever since NXT, she has pittied Carmella.  They were friends, but not best friends.  Bayley says she could show this girl the ropes and be a role model and leader.  Bayley says Carmella is a loser and she is the most dominating Women's Champion.  Bayley reminds Alexa that she beat Alexa and her best friend last summer.  Bayley says nobody can touch Bayley.

Carmella says forget later tonight, do this right here and right now.

We go to commercial.
