WWE SmackDown Results (4/22) Albany, NY

WWE SmackDown Results (4/22) Albany, NY – We are live from the MVP Arena in Albany, NY, where Adam Pearce is in the ring with the official contract signing table, official contract signing carpet, official contract signing chairs and microphones. Pearce brings out Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair.

During Charlotte’s entrance, we see what happened last week between Charlotte and Drew Gulak. Pearce then brings out the challenger, Ronda Rousey.

Adam tells them that they need their signatures on the contract to make it official, but there is no contract on the table. Drew Gulak makes his way to the ring with the contract and Adam says that Drew is his new intern. Drew thanks Adam for the opportunity and Drew has prepared a POWER POINT PRESENTATION for the rules of an I Quit Match.

Charlotte tells Drew to shut up or she will make him quit his new job before he is hired.  Charlotte tells Ronda she won at Wrestlemania and the crowd chants that Charlotte taps out.  Charlotte explains the rules for the match and then she says she has been fantasizing how she would make Ronda say I Quit.  A boot to the face, a figure four, the figure eight.  Charlotte says that is too predictable.  How about an old fashioned beating.  Like at Wrestlemania, I always find a way to win.  At Backlash, I will make you say two of the most beautiful words in the English language, “I QUIT’.

Charlotte signs the contract.

Ronda tells Charlotte that I Quit means that there is no referee to spare you from any embarrassment.  Ronda says no ref will pull her off Charlotte or tell her when it is over.  You will say that you are better than me.  You will surrender your baby, the Smackdown championship, when I make you say “I QUIT”.  

Charlotte pushes over the table and grabs a kendo stick and hits Ronda with it.  Ronda takes the kendo stick and hits Charlotte. Drew takes the kendo stick from Ronda and has her sign the contract but Ronda gets Drew on her shoulders for Piper’s Pit.  Ronda puts Drew in a cross arm breaker and Ronda signs the contract.

— We take a look at the next chapter in Lacey Evans’ life.

Lacey says they were in small houses with mold.  The more money her dad brought into the house meant more drugs.  Her mom was not there during years when she was needed.  She did not have her mom as a shoulder to cry on.  She was left crying on a pile of dirty clothes.  I learned how to put on my own make up.  I started in amateur wrestling in Florida when I was 15 years old and I was ranked nationally.  When you don’t have anyone to rely on, you realize how unstoppable you are.

Imagine having to walk two miles in the rain while juggling a job and wrestling to see your dad passed out and high with a burning cigarette in his mouth.  I learned how unbreakable I was.  What I have been through made me motivated and ready for everything.  I am no better than any of the superstars and they are no better than me.
