WWE SmackDown Results (4/14) – We are live from the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska, as Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn make their way to the ring. We see what happened last week with the champs, The Bloodline and Matt Riddle. Fans cheer and chant before Owens and Zayn can speak.
Sami says it has only been two weeks since the most historic night in Wrestlemania when the tag titles were in the main event of Wrestlemania. Two guys who started from nothing closed out the show as champions. As amazing as it was, they haven’t had time to think about it because of everything that has been happening with the Bloodline and the draft. There is a lot of uncertainty.
Kevin says the uncertainty of the draft does a lot. He knows two things for a fact. Wherever they end up, they are the Undisputed Tag Team Champions. We will defend these titles with whatever we have whether it is on Raw or Smackdown. Speaking of defending these titles, sooner rather than later, the Usos are coming for a rematch.
Jimmy and Jey Uso interrupt and make their way to the stage with Solo Sikoa.
Jimmy asks if he is hearing what he is hearing. They sound like they are folding under pressure. You are champs for two weeks? We were champions for two years. You don’t know about pressure.
Sami says you are the ones who have to report back empty handed to your daddy Roman Reigns.
Jimmy tells Sami to shut up. You talk about the cracks in the Bloodline. The Bloodline is more dangerous than ever. We are more stronger than ever. They have leveled up. You don’t want to deal with the enforcer. Jimmy says they will be nine time WWE Tag Team champions.
Jey says no cracks in the Bloodline. They are solid here. When they take the titles back, you are going to fold under pressure. You are going to turn on each other again. It won’t be KO turning on Sami, it will be Sami backstabbing his brother like Sami backstabbed his entire family.
Sami says he wishes he was as good at things as Jey is at lying to himself. You want to act like everything is fine? You want to act like Solo wasn’t going to drop you last week? Sami says he didn’t think they came out to talk.
Jey says they didn’t.
Before the Usos and Solo can get in the ring, Matt Riddle makes his way to the ring to even the odds. Riddle goes after Solo while Kevin and Sami deal with Jimmy and Jey. Kevin and Sami send Jimmy and Jey into the timekeeper’s area. Riddle avoids a Samoan Spike and he hits a couple of knees. Riddle goes up top and Solo is pulled to the floor by Jimmy and Jey.
