WWE Smackdown Results - April 2, 2021

WWE Smackdown Results – April 2, 2021 – Tonight’s WWE Smackdown begins with a look at what happened betweetn Daniel Bryan, Edge and Roman Reigns last week.

We’re live from the WWE ThunderDome at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, as Edge makes his way to the ring.

Edge says what happened at Fastlane and last week did not need to happen.  Maybe it did.  Maybe it was inevitable.  Maybe I was naive to think that I could make it to Wrestlemania without any road bumps, or roadkill since Daniel Bryan has weasled his way into his match at Wrestlemania.  If anyone could understand what Edge was going through, he thought Daniel would understand.  He meant what he said to Daniel about the reason why he came back.  He was excited for the possibility of teaming with Daniel at Fastlane but not Daniel.  I didn’t see Daniel coming because I was so focused on Roman.  If anyone should see an opportunist, it should be me.

Edge talks about the opportunities that Daniel suggested and they were so brave for Daniel.  Edge says after Adam Pearce’s decision last week, he got played.  I am mad at Daniel, but I have to thank him.  I had a lot of time for reflection and I looked in the mirror and I finally liked what I saw.  I saw the guy who comes out swinging and doing what he has to do when he is in a corner.  He finally saw the Rated R Superstar.  

Why don’t we throw up the graphic of Adam Pearce’s masterpiece for Wrestlemania, the Triple Threat Match for the validation of his paycheck.  Way to go Adam.  I don’t think Adam understands the ramifications of what he did.  He doesn’t think Roman or Bryan understand the ramifications.  Did I snap after the chair shot from Daniel, the knee from Daniel, and the decision by Adam.  I woke up.  I am a man who Roman Reigns aspires to be.  I am a man who Daniel Bryan aspires to be.  I am a Hall of Famer and a Legend.  I am the ultimate opportunist and I am the Rated R Superstar!

Last week, when I held that cold steel chair and heard it crash into your bodies, it felt so good. I had you both for the Conchairto.  It is going to happen again and when it does, I won’t hesitate.

— We see Jey Uso and Daniel Bryan preparing for theri Street Fight Match as we go to commercial.

— We are back and Edge is walking and he is asked by Kayla Braxton about the street fight between Daniel Bryan and Jey Uso.  Kayla asks if he thinks Jey is there to take Bryan out.  Edge says if he is supposed to feel bad if Daniel is beaten senseless and he is not.  What if Daniel cannot make it to Wrestlemania, would he feel bad?  Edge says he would be overjoyed.

Sami is in the ring and he he is challenging Seth Rollins for attire of the night.  Sami says tonight is the premiere of the trailer for the documentary that will show that there is a conspiracy against him with the intent to humiliate him and to undercut his career at every turn and level.  What you are going to see is going to shock you.  It is doubly sweet because he is joined by a special guest who had to take time out of his busy schedule to be here tonight.

Sami asks Logan for his thoughts on the trailer.

Logan tells Sami it was a lot to take in.  He says it was compelling but when you were in the locker room, Kevin Owens approached him and he told Logan that Kevin has known him for 15 years and there is no conspiracy.  He is delusional and living in a different world.

Sami says that Logan is his guest of honor, not Kevin’s.  He is here to help Sami.  Sami apologizes to Logan for his behavior.  Sami says he needs everything to be perfect.  He knows what Kevin thinks and he does not care.  He doesn’t want Kevin poisoning Logan’s mind.  He cares about what Logan Paul thinks about it, not Kevin Owens.

— Kayla Braxton is in the Gorilla Position with Bianca Belair. Kayla asks Bianca about whether she is worried about splitting her focus on Sasha.  Bianca says she was wondering when would this happen.  When would she see the real Sasha Banks.  When she slapped Sasha, we saw the real Sasha.  The woman who will prove that she is the best.  That is the Sasha Banks she wants to face.  Then there is no excuse when she whooops Sasha.  First, she has to deal with Carmella.  She has too much ego and she is the reason we all have to deal with Reginald.  Carmella is a former Smackdown Women’s Champion so she is not looking past her, she is looking through her.
