WWE WrestleMania 35 Match SCRAPPED?! WWE SmackDown Apr. 2, 2019 Review! | WrestleTalk News Apr. 2019

AJ Styles and Randy Orton cut promos! Becky
Lynch cuts a promo! The Miz cuts a promo! The IIconics cut a promo! Promos for you,
promos for you, promos for everyone! And the Vince McMahon screwing Kofi Kingston storyline
reaches its thrilling conclusion by… Vince McMahon not appearing on the show. Huh. And
which WrestleMania match could be scrapped just days before the PPV? Click the timestamps

Do you want to see Kofi Kingston win the WWE Championship this Sunday? And make sure you
vote in the poll above my head to let me know what you thought of this week’s show, where
you can choose from: SmackDamn, SmackTastic, Smack Bang in the Middle, SmackDowner and
A Smack in the Face. This is the WrestleMania go-home edition of Smackdown Live. Kevin Owens opened the show for an interview
segment with AJ Styles and Randy Orton, who both shared jibes about each other’s careers
– with Orton mocking AJ for wrestling in bingo halls, and Styles reminding everyone that
Randy has been suspended in the past for failing drug tests. It was all good stuff, but this
feud doesn’t feel as hot as it really should. If you’d told me 10 years ago that AJ Styles
and Randy Orton would be a marquee match at WrestleMania, I would have been stoked. However
at present, it just feels like any other match. AJ and Orton got into a scuffle, with Randy
laying out Styles with an RKO. It was simple and effective stuff, and better than Finn
Balor going WHHAAA. Aleister Black – complete with his Trap Door
sound effect entrance – teamed with Ricochet and The Usos to take on The League of Nations
2.0 of The Bar, Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura next in a very basic eight-man tag. The Usos
pinned Rusev with a Superkick, and then Raw’s Alexa Bliss came out – brand split lol – to
announce that The Usos would defend their tag titles against Black & Ricochet, The Bar
and Rusev & Nakamura at WrestleMania. Really glad we spent all those weeks building a tag
feud between Black & Ricochet against The Revival. And speaking of four-corner tag matches, IIconics
came out for an in-ring promo to hype their four-corner match at WrestleMania where they’ll
face Boss N Hug, Nia Jax & Tamina and The Divas of Doom for the Women’s Tag Championships.
There was no angle that followed it, or surprise cameo from any of the other three teams in
the match, it was just a really great promo by Billie Kay and Peyton Royce. Not sure this
needed to be in front of the live crowd, but I enjoyed it greatly. Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake is going
into the WWE Hall of Fame. Do you like Raw recaps? Because we got not
one, not two, but three of the buggers in the space of 40 minutes. It’s like watching
a pre-brand split Smackdown. And following the rules of threes, The Miz
beat not one, not two, but all three members of SAniTY in a match that Shane McMahon made
Falls Count Anywhere midway through. Now usually I would be really upset about an exciting
NXT call-up with loads of potential being utterly buried like this, but this SAniTY
is not the same SAniTY as the ones we saw in NXT. This isn’t the team that tore it
up in the Dusty Tag Classic, this isn’t the former NXT Tag Team Champions, this isn’t
the team that main evented a TakeOver show in the first ever NXT War Games match. No,
this is the team that were announced to debut on the main roster, but didn’t actually
debut for two months, the team that doesn’t appear on TV, and when they do just lose.
So yeah, it makes complete sense that The Miz was able to beat these three jaborinis
quite easily in a Falls Count Anywhere match despite them having a two man advantage and
the boss’ son on their side. With all that said, this was a fun Attitude Era-like hardcore
backstage brawl and Miz looked great. Corey Graves introduced Becky Lynch next – was
Kayla Braxton busy or something? – and The Man cut a quick promo saying she will win
this Sunday at WrestleMania. This was all great stuff, but hardly the hot follow-up
to the bonkers Raw angle. We then got an EIGHTEEN-PERSON MIXED TAG MATCH
next. Meaning we got BOTH BATTLE ROYALS STANDING ROUND THE RING. So, this match featured *deep
breath* Naomi, Asuka, Nikki Cross, The Hardy Boyz, Heavy Machinery, R-Truth and Carmella
taking on Gallows & Anderson, Shelton Benjamin, EC3, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Andrade, Zelina
Vega and Lana. And then during the match, Lacey Evans walked out! There’s enough people
out here already Lacey! The action broke down into a brawl which somehow caused a DQ – even
though it didn’t during the eight-man tag earlier in the night – and all eighteen people
threw each other over the top rope. There were some cute spots in this, like Nikki Cross
jumping on Shelton’s back, EC3 doing comedy selling, and the true highlight of Otis looking
at a terrified Mandy Rose and shouting I’M COMING. Asuka stood tall in the end, seemingly
non-phased that she was the Smackdown Women’s Champion just seven days ago and is now in
the pre-show battle royal for losers. The men’s battle royal seems particularly loser-y
as they’re all playing second fiddle to those two dudes from Saturday Night Live. Because the WrestleMania match for the United
States Championship between Samoa Joe and Rey Mysterio required some much needed help
– seen as though Joe has lost the last few weeks on both Raw and Smackdown, and Rey was
pinned by Baron Corbin of all-people on Monday Night this week, Joe quickly beat the former
Mustafa Ali in a short match. Not sure it helped the match to be honest, but it’s
nice to see Joe get a win before his Mania title defence. Although Samoa Joe’s WrestleMania
plans might have changed, keep around for Oli Davis’ news regarding that little tease. And the main event of the show saw the contract
signing for Daniel Bryan and Kofi Kingston’s WrestleMania match for the WWE Championship.
After weeks and weeks and weeks of storytelling with Vince McMahon constantly screwing over
Kofi, both men just signed the contract and that was it. Michael Cole was also there,
because brand split lol. Both Kofi and Bryan cut really good promos, but this was easily
the flattest segment this feud has had, which is a shame as this was supposed to be the
big go-home angle for WrestleMania. With all that said, I’ve never been happier to be
wrong about there being more McMahon shenanigans like I thought there might be last week. However,
it would have been nice to give that story some sort of logical conclusion. Still, it
was much better than ending a show with Baron Corbin pinning Rey Mysterio. Smackdown Live has been easily the best of
the two main roster shows for all of 2019 so far, and the majority of the build to WrestleMania
from the blue brand has been great. But this was a surprisingly tame show for the final
build for the biggest show of the year. Lots of talking, meaningless action, and a damp
ending. This week’s Smackdown Live was Smack Bang in the Middle. And now over to Oli Davis
with the news about a possibly scrapped WrestleMania match. Great views, Luke. I, for one, loved how WWE
paid off the heel Vince McMahon vs New Day storyline on the go-home episode. Everything
is totally wrapped up neatly now. And come this Sunday, season 1 of our fantasy
wrestling predictions league WrestleLeague will also conclude – revealing who out of
me, Luke and Laurie will have to do the savage music video cover punishment, it’s such
a savage punishment. Head over to WrestleTalk’s Patreon by clicking
the link in the video description below to suggest which songs you want us to cover,
and we’ll put the Top 5 up for a vote tomorrow. WrestleLeague Season 1 covers all the pay-per-view
predictions between Royal Rumble and this Sunday’s WrestleMania – which Laurie currently
leads with 19 points, me in second with 16 and Luke bringing up the rear on 14. But it’s
not just me, Luke and Laurie who are competing against each other – anyone who pledges $5
or more on our Patreon page can also take part. There are currently over 500 people
in competition, and still four pay-per-views left to predict – with WrestleMania 35 on
Sunday, the New Japan/Ring of Honor G1 Supercard on Saturday, NXT TakeOver on Friday and IMPACT’s
United We Stand event on Thursday. And what a card IMPACT have put together – with,
amongst others, The Lucha Brothers vs Rob Van Dam and Sabu, Rich Swann vs Flamita, Sami
Callihan vs Jimmy Havoc and Tessa Blanchard vs Joey Ryan. Submit your WrestleLeague predictions
for United We Stand by heading over to WrestleTalk’s Patreon page.
But wrestling Tessa Blanchard isn’t Joey Ryan only dick move over WrestleMania weekend. He’s also letting you take photos with him
whilst touching his penis. The wrestler most famed for his Penis Plex
move has revealed: “By popular request; “YOU CAN TOUCH IT!” Pro Photo Ops available
at #WrestleCon weekend. Go to http://WrestleCon.com under “Pro Photos” in the menu tab to
preorder.” Come on, indie wrestling. It’s just merch,
merch, merch with you guys. Pro Photos… preorder seven.
WrestleMania weekend is really heating up… …now for my story at this time, the WrestleMania
35 pre-show matches have been revealed. Generic backstage WWE interviewer Segway nailed.
Because WWE want to get everyone on the show, they just didn’t say which show, the promotion
have announced their two Battle Royals will now take place on the WrestleMania pre-show.
29 participants have so far been announced for the Giant the Memorial Royal Andre Battle
– most notably Braun Strowman and Saturday Night Live special guest correspondents Michael
Che and Colin Jost – with just 13 women confirmed for the WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal
so far. But what about the pre-pre-show? If we can
figure out the game capture card, Luke, Laurie and I will be live streaming us playing WWE
2K19 on ScreenStalker before each pay-per-view over the weekend! Subscribe to ScreenStalker
to know when we go live. Sadly, one match might not just be bumped
from the main card, but WrestleMania 35 all together. Before last night’s episode of SmackDown
Live began, WWE announced on Twitter the pre-advertised match of Rey Mysterio vs Andrade would no
longer be happening. And, for once, it’s not just because Vince McMahon changed his
mind last minute. “Backstage News from #SDLive: @reymysterio
sustained an ankle injury during his match with @BaronCorbinWWE on #Raw and will be unable
to compete against @AndradeCienWWE tonight.” It’s all your fault, Baron Corbin.
The severity of the injury is currently unknown, so Mysterio “will continue to be evaluated
as WrestleMania draws closer.” If he isn’t cleared, his United States Championship match
with Samoa Joe will have to be scrapped. If only there was a John Cena laying around with
no scheduled match yet. WWE have called out John Oliver for his controversial
monologue on the company! Click the video on the right to find out more. Enter our fantasy

  1. So it’s obvious who’s winning Sunday
    Brock Lesnar, Ronda Rousey, whoever beats the Usos, Finn Balor, and I mean c’mon did we all not see this list of winners…? It’s obvious WWE is about to sink!

  2. I am so done with WWE treating NXT like s…

    It broke my heart seing Sanity getting buried like that. As much as I love the Miz and Shane feud, this is bull. So if Miz loses to Shane, am I supposed to beleive he is by far stronger then a talented german (my home Country thats why he is also Special), a beast like Killiain Dain (one of my favourite NXT Wrestlers) who wrecked everything in NXT and the mastermind that is Eric Young. Yea you know what screw you Vince for destroying HHH character work. I hope Miz wins but I already see it coming.

  3. About a half hour in are my mania picks along with my guest.


  4. I hope Kofi wins so he can cover up that concave chest with a custom made belt that he wears like a backwards backpack.
    I also hope Lashley squashes that little guy wearing makeup.
