Welcome To Friday Night Smackdown!
This was the night before Wrestlemania 32
In what amounts to the company’s last-ditch effort to sell fans on this weekend’s WrestleMania, this week’s broadcast is headlined by AJ Styles, just days from his first dance on The Grandest Stage of Them All with Chris Jericho. His opponent Thursday? The Social Outcasts’ Heath Slater, who in no way resembles Jericho other than his love of all things rock ‘n’ roll.
Also in action is Dean Ambrose (as usual) and The Wyatt Family’s Erick Rowan. The two Superstars are hardly strangers to each other, seemingly doing battle every other week in some form or fashion.
After an abysmal episode of Raw that did little to sell this year’s WrestleMania and more to infuriate fans, this Thursday’s show is the company’s final opportunity to sway fans.
That doesn’t mean that there wasn’t any action at all, far from it. Just much less than what you’d expect to see. Held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, here’s what went down on Smackdown:
AJ Styles defeated Heath Slater
The Social Outcasts were in the ring first, cutting a promo to kick off Smackdown. Slater had some friendly faces at ringside in the form of Curtis Axel, Bo Dallas and Adam Rose, but the match went to Styles after he landed the springboard forearm on the former one-man rock band and picked up a win.
D-Von Dudley defeated Jay Uso
With Bubba Ray Dudley in his corner, a Smackdown win for D-Von was assured as he nailed Jey Uso with a spinebuster slam for the three-count.
Dean Ambrose defeated Erick Rowan
Initially accompanied to the ring by Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman, the pair were sent backstage before the match kicked off. Ambrose picked up a win before Wrestlemania, nailing Dirty Deeds on Rowan.
Wrestlemania 32 takes place this Sunday, in Texas.
