SmackDown Tag Team Title Fatal 4-Way Match: SmackDown, April 9, 202102:58 Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode retained in SmackDown Tag Team Title Fatal 4-Way Match After initiating a pre-match brawl with The Street Profits that quickly drew Otis & Chad Gable and Rey & Dominik Mysterio into the fray, SmackDown Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode ultimetaely prevailed over the three challenging tandems in an explosive Fatal 4-Way showdown.
WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Nia Jax collided with a potential WrestleMania opponent from Night 1’s Tag Team Turmoil Match, Tamina. Just when it looked as if Tamina may knock off The Irresistible Force, Shayna Baszler prevented the pinfall and brought an end to the match by disqualification. Nevertheless, Tamina & Natalya still walked out with momentum heading into The Show of Shows when they knocked The Queen of Spades out of the ring.
Claiming Daniel Bryan “weaseled” his way into the main event of WrestleMania and that he himself forged the very path that Roman Reigns first used to make it in WWE, an impassioned Edge said he was destined to be the next Universal Champion because, like everything else he had done in his storied career, he has dreamt it and would manifest it.
Moments after SmackDown aired footage of Sami Zayn inviting himself to Logan Paul’s Training Camp in Miami, Kevin Owens once again attacked The Master Strategist and nearly delivered the Stunner to his WrestleMania adversary before Zayn escaped.
This year’s action-packed Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal came down to Ricochet, Jey Uso, King Corbin and Shinsuke Nakamura. “Main Event” Uso endured the Kinshasa and reversed The Artist’s attempt to throw him over the top rope to emerge victorious.
Universal Champion Roman Reigns closed out the special WrestleMania edition of SmackDown by insisting that he will crush the dreams of Edge and Daniel Bryan and use their defeat as a launching point for the next great year as The Head of the Table.
