The Universal Title match at WrestleMania is now a Triple Threat Match - Roman Reigns defending against Edge AND Daniel Bryan. Adam Pearce announced the decision at the end of last night’s SmackDown.
New matches added to Mania during last night’s SmackDown…
Seth Rollins and Cesaro will meet on Night 1. Rollins beat Shinsuke Nakamura on last night’s SmackDown.
Added to Night 2: Big E defending the Intercontinental Title - once again - against Apollo Crews. Crews did pin Big E to win a 6-man tag last night.
Also announced for Night 2 - Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn.
Zayn promised last night that YouTuber Logan Paul will appear on next Friday’s SmackDown for a red carpet premiere of the trailer for Zayn’s documentary.
Also last night...Rey Mysterio pinned one-half of the Smackdown tag champs, Dolph Ziggler.
Bianca Belair pinned Natalya with the KOD. Sasha Banks was outside the ring during the match, taunting Belair. At one point, Belair went outside the ring and slapped Banks. After the match, Banks attacked Belair from behind.
Rush is STILL the Ring Of Honor World Champion - but aside from that, it was NOT a very good Friday night for La Faccione Ingobernable.
After Rush was victorious over Jay Lethal in the main event of ROH’s 19th Anniversary pay per view...he was confronted by a former challenger - Brody King.
Only King did not come alone, and introduced his own group to combat LFI - Tony Deppen, Chris Dickinson and former ROH World Champ Homicide.
LFI’s Dragon Lee had an especially tough night - and he wasn’t even at the show. Lee missed the show due to surgery for a ruptured eardrum.
So, Kenny King defended Lee’s TV Title in his place - but LOST to HOT SAUCE Tracy Williams. The end of the match saw Amy Rose throw the TV title belt into the ring. King and Williams stared at it for sec...but when King went for it, Williams caught him with a piledriver for the win.
Later, Bestia Del Ring subbed in for Lee, as he and King defended the ROH tag titles - and LOST to Williams and Rhett Titus. Again, Amy Rose was blamed for the loss...and after the tag match, Bestia Del Ring hit her with a SPEAR!
Jonathan Gresham is still the Pure Champion. He submitted Dak Draper with a sleeper that he applied by diving through the ropes and onto Draper. Dak was able to carry Gresham’s weight back into the ring but he was out of “rope breaks” and there was no escape after that.
Shane Taylor Promotions successfully defended their 6-man tag titles against the MexiSquad. After the match, Flamita, Bandido and Rey Horus got into an argument. That led to a 3-way match between them on the main show. Bandido pinned Flamita with the 21-plex to win it.
Silas Young turned on Josh Woods! He hit Woods with a steel chair and Dalton Castle rolled up Woods for the win.
Matt Taven and Vincent brawled through the P.A.L. Hall in Fall River, Massachusetts. The fight ended when a large man pushed both men off a balcony...and through a pair of tables set up below. That large man carried Vincent out of the building. On Twitter, he identified himself as “Dutch”..
EC3 got the handshake he was looking for from Jay Briscoe - but moments later he got a Jay Driller and took the loss.
Danhausen won the 4-way during the free first hour of the show.
During the show, it was announced that Ring Of Honor will hold a tournament over the summer to crown a new women’s champion. Angelina Love will get a bye in that tournament if she can beat...backstage interviewer Quinn McKay.
Rocky Romero was on commentary for the entire main show. At one point, Delirious came out and whispered something into Rocky’s ear.
(STINGER: New Japan)
On last night’s New Japan Strong…
Clark Connors upset TJP in a qualifying match for the U.S. version of the New Japan Cup tournament. Connors was caught in a heel hook, but managed to roll up TJP for the pin.
The other qualifying match last night saw Chris Dickinson beat Blake Christian.
David Finlay & Karl Fredericks beat FILTHY Tom Lawlor & Danny Limelight in last night’s main event. Finlay pinned Limelight.
Back in Japan, the Road To Sakura Genesis tour kicks off on Sunday.
