WWE Smackdown Results - March 5, 2019

WWE Smackdown
We begin with a graphic In Memory of King Kong Bundy.

We are live from the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre, PA, as Danyel Bryan and Erik Rowan make their way to the ring.

Before Daniel can speak we see the very dramatic video package for Kofi Kingston and how his dreams and wishes have been dashed.

Daniel says he sat in the ring last week silent while all of you gushed about Kofi Kingston. Daniel says he remained silent when Vince McMahon replaced Kofi in the WWE Championship match at Fastlane. Now it is his time to speak and for you to remain silent.

Rowan tells everyone to SHUT UP. He says to open your ears because he is going to enlighten you.

Daniel says he is not out here to talk about Kofi Kingston. Kofi is not a leader. He is a supporting player. That is why Kofi is exactly where he should be . . . with his buddies the New Day on a promotional tour of India. Vince was right to replace him, but he was not right to replace the man who dishes out copious amounts of pancakes with someone who eats copious amounts of pancakes.

You like Kevin Owens because he is like all of you. He looks like you. He thinks like you, without an original thought in his head. Kevin does not deserve a shot at the WWE Championship. Kevin Owens is a nobody. That is what makes him so dangerous. A nobody is somebody with nothing to lose. What you don't understand is that he has everything to lose because he is the planet's champion. Daniel says he has the pressure of knowing that if he loses, the entire planet loses. Daniel says he does not want to be called a martyr . . .

Kevin Owens interrupts and he makes his way to the stage.

Kevin says since he got injured five months ago, he stepped away from being a WWE Superstar and he was a member of the WWE Universe. He sat back at home with his family and they watched every Raw and Smackdown from his couch.

Daniel says that is where you belong.

Kevin says as great as that time off was, it was hard to sit back and watch people do what he does, except when you were out here. When you were out here, it was not hard, it was awful to watch you walking around like a maniac and talk down to everybody. Kevin says he is sick of people who think they are better than everybody else. Then he saw Daniel throw the title belt in the trash can.

Daniel says that is where it belongs.

Kevin says that was the last straw and he knew where he wanted to come back. You deserve to get your stupid condescending mouth shut and Kevin says he is the one to do it.

Daniel says it is not his mouth you should be worried about, with all of the garbage you shove down your throats, he is out here to provide wisdom and not empty calories.

Kevin asks if the wise Daniel Bryan is resorting to fat jokes. Do you only consume organic carrots? You can shove them...

Daniel says that Kevin is going low brow and that is just like the people.

Kevin says if you think he is like these people and think you are a pretentious jackass, then YEP. It is not just that. Like these people, he does not have a reality show and a seven foot tall backup dancer.

Daniel says the only reason you don't have a seven footer next to you, it is because you don't have any friends left.

Kevin says that is pretty clever, but it is true. Kevin says he had backup, but it is his fault. Kevin says he didn't need anyone else to hit you with that stunner and pin you. The bottom line is that he did not intend to take Kofi's opportunity, but it is his intention to beat Daniel on Sunday and take the WWE Title from you.

Rowan gets between Daniel and Kevin. Kevin asks the redwood if he has a problem and he punches Rowan. Owens dumps Rowan over the top rope to the floor. Bryan and Owens brawl now. Owens goes for the Stunner but Rowan comes in for the save. Rowan drives Owens down into the mat and gets hyped up over him. Fans boo as Rowan and Bryan stand tall over Owens, raising the WWE Title in the air. Bryan's music hits as he and Rowan march to the back.

Jimmy says he is sick of Shane talking about jumping off everything, even the Wrestlemania sign. Shane acts like his shoe game is better than theirs. Jey says it is, but Jimmy tells him that is not the point. They are going to be in the ring with a real tag team. Jey says they are going to hit hard at Fastlane.

Miz and Shane make their way to the ring and Shane wants to know how everyone is doing and he says he wants to get down to business. Shane says they have passion, emotion, and they wear their hearts on their sleeves. That is why they are the Best Tag Team in the World. We will see who is laughing last on Sunday.
