WWE Smackdown spoilers and analysis: March 26, 2015
This week’s Smackdown tapings for the March 16th edition was filmed after Monday Night Raw from the Staples Center. Due to Wrestlemania 31 being so close, this week’s show will be fairly basic however the divas were actually given a lot of time to shine.
-Jimmy Uso defeats Big E, Cesaro and Fernando in a Fatal Four Way match by pinning Cesaro. The individual’s respective partners were all at ringside.
-AJ Lee comes out to cut an in-ring promo. She insults the Bellas and says that she and Paige are now back on the same page. Paige comes out and they go back & forth on the mic with The Bellas. Nikki insults AJ by saying that Lesnar worked more dates than AJ last year. This entire segment was apparently very good and fairly long.
-The main event saw John Cena, Mark Henry, Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns defeat Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt, Big Show, Kane by Bryan pinning Show. The show closed with Yes chants.
-The rest of Smackdown will be made up of footage from Wrestlemania AXXESS events.
Due to this being the Wrestlemania week, Smackdown only featured two matches and one promo segment. The rest of Smackdown will be filled with footage from the Wrestlemania AXXESS events which will be running all week.
The main event was a fairly long match that featured several top stars should be very interesting and fun to watch. Apparently, Reigns received some cheers but according to others the crowd was fairly dead throughout the entire show.
It’s also nice to see the Divas be given plenty of time to shine on the mic, especially AJ who is renowned as an incredible performer on the mic. This promo time should help provide some good anticipation and intriguing build to their tag team bout at mania. The divas almost look to be the stars of this week’s Smackdown.
Wrestlemania 31 is now only days away and this week’s Smackdown will be a very simple show that will serve as the last stop before the biggest show of the year.
