|Daniel Bryan Catches Beef - Src WWE dot com|
WWE Smackdown Live March 20, 2018 Results and Review
The show started with Daniel Bryan giving a great in-ring speech and saying that he was cleared for competition. Everyone shed a tear, and was in with Bryan here. I loved it.
Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Rusev
The artist beat Rusev. Despite the many Rusev Day chants, Nakamura was able to garner a great deal of success here with his moves, and fast paced style. He would eventually get a big win here and Rusev would go down. After the match he got double teamed and fended off both Rusev and Aiden English, and was left standing. He then got on a mic and said that he didn’t need Aj Styles to save him.
Baron Corbin defeated Tye Dillinger
The perfect 10 was buried, and it saddened me.
Natalya defeated Charlotte Flair
This wasn’t half bad, a good match with some great back and forth. As Natalya looked like she was going to win, Charlotte Flair was out and in came Natalya with her briefcase. However, she got knocked out before she could get the final go to cash in, and Natalya pins Flair thanks to the distraction. Not a bad women’s match nor ending, but I wonder when Carmella is going to get a shot at winning the belt with her briefcase, geez.
Harper defeated Jimmy Uso
This was a boring match for me, but it had Jimmy Uso fighting for his life against Harper. The two worked well together, but at the end of the day is was Harper that was able to get the big win here.
Jinder Mahal and Bobby Roode were arguing when Randy Orton showed up and then got into a scuffle.
This scuffle had one of the Signh Brothers getting beat down, and that’s about it. Mahal ran out of the ring after pushing Singh into Orton and Roode. They both beat down the little guy, and then nearly fought one another.
Becky Lynch and Naomi defeated Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan
This was an ok match, but I’m growing tired of seeing tag team matches with the same people very week. Becky Lynch got the submission after a short match, and that was all that happened here. Not terrible, but definitely not that great.
Daniel Bryan Fired Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
Daniel Bryan called out Owens and Zayn and eventually fired both of them. They got mad, and tried to beat him up, but he fought back. Bryan fought hard, and it was awesome to see him fight back, but the numbers games were starting to rise and that wasn’t fun. Eventually Bryan got beat down and that was the end.
Not a terrible night of wrestling, and obviously going to get a lot of praise for seeing Bryan back in the ring. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either, so I’m somewhere in between.
