WWE Smackdown Results - April 23, 2021

WWE Smackdown Results – April 23, 2021 – Tonight’s show begins with a look back at last week’s episode when Cesaro decided to show that he was next for Roman Reigns and the events leading to Seth Rollins attacking Cesaro in the main event.

We’re live from the WWE ThunderDome at Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida, as we see Cesaro in the middle of the ring ready to speak. But before he can say anything, Seth Rollins appears on the stage.

Seth Rollins calls Cesaro the man of the hour.  He wants everyone to give it up for him.  Seth says he came out here to congratulate him because he did it.  You reached and fulfilled your potential.  Do you know why?  You were in the ring at Wrestlemania with me.  Seth says he took Cesaro from way down there to the promised land with your performance at Wrestlemania.  Where is my thanks and adulation?  You said that you are moving on from me and have your sights set on the Universal Championship.  I said it last week and I will say it again.  It isn’t over until I say it’s over. On my worst day and your best, you can’t beat me.  

Cesaro asks Seth if he is having a good day because he is having a great day.  He wants Seth to enter the ring so he can beat him tonight. Seth says maybe he will use tonight as an opportunity to teach a lesson.

Jey Uso’s music plays and he comes out and he says that Seth has a point.  You challenged the head of the table and you don’t deserve to be in the same ring as him.  You can’t beat me, Roman, or Seth.  You didn’t get the lesson last week and I will show you tonight. Seth tells Jey Cesaro has the high ground now, but they need to surround Cesaro. They stand on opposite sides of the ring and…

Daniel Bryan’s music plays and he yeses his way to the ringside area and he gets in the ring wtih Cesaro.

Daniel asks where are they going.  You didn’t get what you want.  Cesaro wants a title match against Roman.  Seth, you are embarrassed and upset that Cesaro beat you at Wrestlemania.  Jey, you came out here because Roman told you to.  Daniel says he came out here so Cesaro finally gets what he deserves.  There is a reason why I haven’t done this for you Seth or Jey.  I have an infinite amount of respect for Cesaro becaues he has worked harder than anybody.  The only reason Roman is where he is today is because of family connections while Cesaro hasn’t gotten one thing given to him.

Daniel suggests that they come fight him and Cesaro because of what he said to them?  Probably not.  Will Roman come out and accept the challenge?  Probably not.  He doesn’t like to fight.  Roman is going to come out and the three of you are going to try to attack us and beat us to a pulp.  If three guys are going to attack us, there is no one I would rather have at my side than Cesaro.

And here comes Roman Reigns accompanied by Paul Heyman.

Paul hands Roman a mic and Roman says DB is talking about hard work.  You should be talking about the work I did on you at Wrestlemania.  I told you and everyone what would happen.  Roman shows his shirt that shows him pinning Edge and Bryan.  He says Bryan is on the bottom and that means he is a loser.  The fact that this loser is talking for you, that makes you a loser.  You are not a loser to everyone, but you are losers to me.  You are top tier losers.  Bryan, you are a Wrestlemania main event loser.  Cesaro, you are a casino loser, a loser with bad luck.  Y’all are here running your mouth and talking smack while people are ready to whoop your ass. Reigns wishes good luck and walks off as his music starts back up. Rollins and Uso look to be heading to the ring as we go to commercial.
