– Daniel Bryan faced Shinsuke Nakamura after tonight’s SmackDown Live / 205 Live tapings. Earlier in the evening, WWE had said that Bryan was not cleared to appear on tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live, which was clearly storyline.
Bryan and Nakamura had a short but fun 7-10 minute match with a lot of submissions that the crowd was going crazy for and they chanted “Oui!”. The end of the match saw Bryan hitting Nakamura with his Yes! kicks, only for Nakamura to duck one of them and hit a low blow, which prompted the referee to ring the bell and rule the match for Bryan via disqualification.
After the match Nakamura came back for the kinshasa, but Bryan reversed it and sent him fleeing after running knee. Bryan then cut a promo where he thanked the crowd and asked them to teach him what “oui” means.
– Roman Reigns took to Twitter during tonight’s SmackDown and wrote the following on the promo from Samoa Joe as the two prepare to do battle at Sunday’s WWE Backlash pay-per-view:
Selfie videos on #Raw, all over Brock’s jock on #SDLive….busy week for Samoa Joe. .. Lots of talk for a man who’s going to be humbled at #WWEBacklash.
