We’re still not done with this post-WrestleMania world and things are going to get even more dramatic on this week’s Smackdown.
The event, taped on Tuesday night from Houston, Texas, wraps up the on-screen slate of wrestling action after last Sunday’s epic WrestleMania and the WWE is intent on ending on a high note. With that in mind, it’s understandable why this week’s event is chock full of big names and even bigger matches.
After all, on Monday night alone we saw the Intercontinental Title change hands, watched AJ Styles emerge as the top contender for Roman Reigns’ Heavyweight Championship. Trust us, this is going to be one impressive SmackDown. If you don’t want to wait until Thursday, however, you can read on to check out the spoilers and results for every single match:
- Roman Reigns opened SmackDown and didn’t receive a particularly pleasant reception. Check it out
- AJ Styles joined Reigns in the ring and reiterated that he’s coming for the title, prompting big-time cheers from the crowd. Reigns responded by, literally, patting him on the shoulder and walking away.
