WWE Smackdown Results - April 9, 2021

WWE Smackdown Results – April 9, 2021 – The final Smackdown episode before WrestleMania 37 begins with a look at what happened last week between Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan and Edge.

For the last time, we’re live from the WWE ThunderDome at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, as Daniel Bryan makes his way to the ring.

Bryan hits the ring and leads a “yes!” chant as Greg Hamilton does the introductions.

Daniel says we are so close to the biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania.  Everyone is excited and Daniel is excited for everything.  He is excited to see the set, smell the pyro, and see the human reaction in Raymond James.  He is excited to hear the roar of the WWE Universe in person.  He says he loves the Thunderdome, but there is absolutely nothing like wrestling in front of a live audience, nothing like wrestling in front of a live audience at Wrestlemania, and there is nothing like winning the Universal Championship in the main event of Wrestlemania.  That is what I cannot wait for.  Walking down to the ring with 25,000 people chanting YES in unison.  There is nothing else like it.

Daniel says he is associated with the word ‘yes’, but most of his career revolves around being told no.  Is Daniel Bryan big enough?  No.  Does Daniel Bryan belong in the WWE?  No.  Is Daniel Bryan a superstar?  No.  Is Daniel Bryan what’s best for business?  Can Daniel Bryan be the face of WWE?  No.  Does Daniel Bryan belong in the main event of Wrestlemania?  If you ask Batista, Randy Orton, Triple H, Edge, or Roman Reigns, they would say no, but I think the answer is yes.

My mentors told me to ignore those who tell you no.  That is why I say Yes.  Every time life told me no, I said yes.  Will Daniel Bryan be able to wrestle again?  Doctors said no, I said yes.  Can I become champion again?  People said no, I said yes.  Would I be able to tap out Roman Reigns at Fastlane?  Roman Reigns said no, and I said yes.  Can Daniel Bryan main event Wrestlemania?  Adam Pearce said no, but then he said yes.

This Sunday, at Wrestlemania, this is by far, the biggest match of my career.  A Triple Threat Match for the Universal Championship.  You have Edge, who is furious because he thinks I have stolen his spotlight.  You have Roman Reigns who is furious that I made him tap out and if I do it again, he will no longer be champion.  When people are enraged, they are at their most dangerous.

What Daniel Bryan will they face?  Not the Daniel Bryan who was the general manager.  It won’t be family man Daniel Bryan.  They will get the most dangerous Daniel Bryan.  Daniel says that he will do anything,

Bryan says that brings him to one more question – can he walk out of the WrestleMania main event as Universal Champion? Yes. Bryan leads another big fake “yes!” chant as his music starts up.

– Kayla Braxton is backstage with The Street Profits. They’re chanting “yes!” as well. They get hyped up about winning the titles back tonight. They’re s

In the Arena:

We are back and Edge is in the ring and he is going to speak.

Edge says he went to Wrestlemania VI, Hulk Hogan versus the Ultimate Warrior.  That night, I knew what I needed to do with the rest of my life.  When I dream things, I have to manifest them.  That is how things work in my world.  I became a WWE Superstar.  A superstar who accomplished everything.  But ending my career on my terms.  Some of you would say ‘isn’t that enough’ then you don’t know the mentality that I have to fight for nine years.  I didn’t walk away from this, I had this ripped away from me.  I didn’t try to forge another career off this.  This is all I wanted to do.  I fought and ripped my career out of fate’s hand.  I didn’t do this for a greatest hits tour.  I came back to steal the show and main event Wrestlemania.

Daniel Bryan, you come out here saying this could your last Wrestlemania.  A month in your career is like a year in mine.  You use sympathy to weasel your way into the match.  Then you had ridiculous ideas.  You face the winner of Edge and Roman and that was shot down.  You suggested you face me on Saturday and the winner faces Roman on Sunday.  That was shot down.  Now we have a Triple Threat match.  Instead of a Clash of the Titans, we have an indie bookstore troll getting in our way.

Roman, you walk around here like you own this and you owe us.  I don’t owe you anything.  You owe us.  You came into the WWE in a three man group.  You came through the crowd.  You used a spear.  Who set the template for you?  You are Samoan Edge.  You are good.  I see what you have accomplished.  I came back to swing for the fences and you are the Green Monster.  We had our match pulled away from us.  Everyone agrees except the lemmings who chant Yes like they used to chant What.  This match is happening ten years to the day from when I had to retire.  Where is the dramatic video package for me?

Why am I having to remind everyone of this/  Since I came back, I have not received the respect that I deserve.  I fought back from a torn triceps and entered the Royal Rumble at number one.  I should not have to jump through hoops.  You do not know the pain I have gone through to get back.  I am not a part timer mailing this in.  I am competing at a level no one has ever done from this injury.  It is a slap in the face at my work ethic.  It is time to demand the respect that I deserve.  You will put respect on my name.  In case you didn’t know, I am the Rated R Superstar.  You can call it whatever you want, but I am the next Universal Champion.  Because I dreamt it and now I will manifest it.


Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville are in the back and they talk about how excited they are for Wrestlemania.  Sonya says it wasn’t fair that Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler had to defend their titles against three other teams.  She has also an issue with the Triple Threat Match.  She says it should be Roman Reigns versus Edge in a singles match.

— Sasha Banks is in the back with Kayla Braxton and we will hear from her when we come back from commercial.


We are back and Kayla is still with Sasha Banks.  She asks Sasha about Bianca’s comments.  

Sasha asks if she cares about what Bianca has to say.  It is the other way around.  Bianca wants to hear what she has to say.  Bianca may be the EST of the WWE but she is not the best, I am.  I have always been and always will be.  I want Bianca at her best.  Whatever she gives to me, I will give it back to her, Boss Style.  When Bianca taps out, she will realize her place is beneath her.

— We take a look at the WWE Championship Match with a video package.

— We take a look at Sami Zayn in Miami to visit Logan Paul while he is sparring in the ring.  Logan is shocked to see Sami.  Sami thanks Logan for his help in getting the trailer noticed.  We see Sami getting locked out of the building and he cannot get back in.

While competitors for the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal make their way to the ring all together, Sami Zayn joins the commentary table and he says they only showed selected images.  He says they did not show Logan apologizing to security and they had breakfast together. Owens attacks Zayn and sends Sami into the announce table.  Zayn is able to avoid a stunner but Owens follows after.  Kevin says he will see Sami at Wrestlemania.

We go to commercial.

Back to commercial.

In the Arena:

We are back and Roman is handed the mic so he knows it is time to talk.

Roman says he is annoyed that he even has to be here.  I am not a politician.  I am not running for President.  I don’t have to sell myself to you.  I have more things to worry about.  I am in a match that I can lose even if I am not pinned.  Since I am here, I might as well state the obvious.  I am going to show up and win.  You bought the shirt and that might sound like an arrogant statement but that is from my humble beginnings.  Show days are the easy day.  When you prep at a 12, a 10 is easy.  Show up and win means that when Roman Reigns shows up, WWE is winning.  I could be like Edge and Daniel Bryan and have a good week.  

One week.  Since August 23rd at Summerslam I have been doing it week after week for 30 weeks in a row.  The numbers don’t lie.  Who do you think changed the ratings?  Who made this title relevant?  Me.

Roman says this is your dream DB?  You tired of hearing no?  Now you are telling people you made me tap out?  You are holding on by a thread here.  If you made me tap out, you would be champion and you are not and you won’t be.  You can’t make me tap out on Sunday.  

Edge, you want to complete the come back?  Nobody took it from you?  That is garbage.  Direct the finger at me.  I took it from you and I took it from everyone else.  Dreamers.  This is where the comeback story ends.  You think this championship is your dream?  Being in the main event of Wrestlemania with Roman Reigns is your dream.  You are the launching pad.  If you think what I did this year is special, wait until you see what I do next.  I am a man with the golden hand.  Everything I touch has a purpose.  I save careers.

Who gave you the greatest year of your career Uce?  I am not going to do that for you DB and Edge.  I am going to crush your dreams.  This isn’t a prediction, it is a spoiler.  On Sunday night at Wrestlemania, I am going to wreck everybody and I am going to leave.  I am going to smash you, stack you, and pin you.  I am going to take this championship and hold it over my head and you are going to see someone better than you.  The whole world will acknowledge me.

We go to credits as they head to the back and commentators remind us that WrestleMania is tomorrow night. Oh, you didn’t know?
