Tonight’s WrestleMania 35 Go-Home Episode Of SmackDown LIVE opens up from The Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland as Tom Phillips welcomes us to the show. He’s joined by Corey Graves & Byron Saxton. Commentary then recaps last night’s women’s brawl leading to the arrests of Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, & Ronda Rousey. They will have an update on The WrestleMania 35 main eventers later on tonight following last night’s arrest. Commentary then hypes up tonight’s WWE Championship contract signing.
Kevin Owens is already in the ring and is ready to host another edition of The Kevin Owens Show. He welcomes us and notes that we are just five days away from WrestleMania, where each of his guests are going to continue their respective legacies. He introduces Randy Orton first and then AJ Styles and begins by talking about Orton interrupting what was meant to be Kurt Angle’s last-ever match on SmackDown last week, asking him if he is proud of it. Orton says that hell yeah he is proud he stopped us from seeing a washed-up Olympian beat a guy who thinks he is at the top of his game.
And he saved us from watching the match, to which Styles says that Orton has been in the ring for twenty years and learned one move. Don’t get him wrong, it’s deadly, but it’s one move. Orton then says when you have a move that deadly all you need is one, but Styles doesn’t get that. Orton then says that we all think these indie guys have it so hard trying to make ends meet, going from high school gym to armory back to high school gym and trying to impress dozens of fans, but while they are doing that, he was wrestling at WrestleMania in front of tens of thousands.
Styles says that Orton is right. When he was in gyms, Randy was in WWE, getting suspended for failing drug tests. Orton then says that the truth is if Styles is as good as he thinks he is, he would have been in WWE a long, long time ago. Orton then says that Styles thinks his legacy is that hard work pays off, no, that’s not his legacy, his legacy is that now that John Cena’s gone to Hollywood, he has assumed the role of corporate bitch.
Orton sets the mic down and Owens gets the hell out of Dodge as The Viper & The Phenomenal One rise from their seats and face off. AJ in with forearms, backing Orton into the corner, ripping his vest off but Orton smashes his face into the table and uppercuts him to the apron. Styles goes for The Phenomenal Forearm but it gets countered into an RKO as the loud mixed reactions continue. We go to replays to end the segment.
We head backstage where we see Kofi Kingston with Big E & Xavier Woods as they examine The WWE Title contract for WrestleMania.

After the match, the winners celebrate as WrestleMania 35 host Alexa Bliss comes out. She takes a shot at the blue brand and hypes WrestleMania 35 up. She says SmackDown has lost its spirit of competition. She brings up how The Usos forfeited a match to The New Day last week to help Kofi Kingston. She then says that was so noble and so deserving of repercussions. Bliss then announces that SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos will be defending their SmackDown Tag Team Titles against Rusev & Nakamura, The Bar and Ricochet & Black in a Fatal 4-Way Match at WrestleMania. This leads to a big brawl breaking out. The brawl ends with Black & Ricochet standing tall.

The IIconics make their entrance and we go to a commercial break.
Back from the commercial break and commentary breaks WWE’s WrestleMania Week offerings down for us.
The IIconics are in the ring and Billie Kay starts by saying that the state of the tag teams at WrestleMania is quite dramatic, with both The SmackDown Tag Team Titles & The WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles defended in Fatal 4-Way Matches. The IIconics then talk about how they could pin all the various other women that are in the match, running them down and pointing out that they have already beaten the current champs, The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection. The IIconics then say that it’s a no-brainer that at Sunday they are gonna win the tag titles and make WrestleMania iconic.
We then get another recap of last night’s brawl and the ensuing arrests follows.
The Miz makes his entrance as he will be in action after the commercial break.
Back from the commercial break and commentary informs us that Brutus “the Barber” Beefcake is being inducted into The WWE Hall Of Fame.
Ahead of his match, The Miz gets on the mic.
He begins by saying that WrestleMania means different things to different people. For the women in the main event, it means making history. For Kofi Kingston, it means finally breaking through and for him, it means retribution. Recently he has been able to take stock in who he is and that is why he knows he stands there as the best version of The Miz because he has an incredible family.
For proof, tune into tonight’s premiere of Miz and Mrs., which is something he is proud of and he fights with a full heart, more motivated than ever before in his entire career. That is why he made his match Falls Count Anywhere, because he can’t be contained in the ring and he will beat Shane McMahon anywhere and everywhere.
The Miz then says that he used to fight for his father’s approval, but after what McMahon did to his dad, now he fights for his honor. And hey, Shane has a dad, so he guesses that makes him a son of a bitch.
SAnitY cut The Miz off with their entrance and Shane McMahon follows after.
Shane says that he just wanted to come out there and see this one up close and personal, before demanding Greg Hamilton give him his special introduction and then calling for the bell.
SAnitY (Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe & Killian Dain) vs. The Miz (3-on-1 Handicap Match): The opening bell sounds and Miz starts going at it with Eric Young first. Miz knocks Wolfe & Dain off the apron, then Young fires back with a neckbreaker on Miz. The Miz fights back and hits a series of running knee strikes on Young & Dain in opposite corners of the ring. The Miz starts to climb the turnbuckle, but then Shane gets on the mic and distracts him. Greg Hamilton starts to re-introduce Shane as the best, but Shane tells him to calm down and that’s not needed again. Shane just wants to inform Miz that his match against SAnitY right now is also a Falls Count Anywhere Match, just like their match on Sunday. SAnitY then takes advantage of the distraction and knocks Miz out to ringside then puts the boots to him. Dain misses a shot and crashes into the barricade, then Miz throws Young out into the crowd. Wolfe comes over and brawls with Miz in the crowd now. Miz suplexes Wolfe through a table on the floor, but Young breaks up the pin. The Miz brawls with Young behind the stage now. The brawl through the backstage area and Miz throws Young into a metal door. Dain comes over now and starts beating on Miz. Dain misses a shot and Miz shoves him face-first into an electrical box.

Miz then wheels a production equipment crate into Young’s head for the three count. Winner: The Miz
After the match, Miz stands tall and recovers as we hear his theme song play in the arena. Shane McMahon’s black SUV is sitting there. Miz spots it and stares Shane down it pulls off. A police car suddenly appears with the sirens and lights on. Becky Lynch steps out and she’s all smiles. Becky walks to the building as we go to a commercial break.
Back from the commercial break and we get a video package recapping the main event story for WrestleMania.
Corey Graves is in the ring and introduces Becky Lynch.
She gets in the ring briefly before rolling out and getting on top of the announce desk to address the crowd.
She says that it is good to be out free in Baltimore and no disrespect to Corey but she doesn’t answer to him, she answers to these people and then points out that her mugshot shirt aged well. Lynch then says that she was thinking, in the back of the cop car, what a difference a year makes. Lynch then says that this time last year, she & Charlotte were the best of friends, Ronda Rousey was about to make her debut and it was like the stars were aligned to get Flair & Rousey into the main event of this year’s WrestleMania.
That is, until she smacked the smugness off of Charlotte’s face at SummerSlam and changed everything. Lynch then says that she was determined at that point to do whatever it took to get into this year’s WrestleMania and look at us now. 80,000 people coming to WrestleMania for them, for The Queen, The Baddest Woman on The Planet & The Man going head to head to head.
Lynch then says that their evolution, the real revolution that started at SummerSlam with a slap, is going to explode this Sunday when the winner takes all and she makes one of them dopes tap. Lynch then says that the next time she sees the crowd, she is going to be the champ she knows she always was, the double champ.

We then get a video package for Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins.

Samoa Joe makes his entrance and we go to a commercial break.
Back from the commercial break and commentary hypes up this year’s WWE Hall Of Fame class.
WWE United States Champion Samoa Joe vs. Mustafa Ali: This is a Non-Title Match. This one spills out to ringside early on and then back in the ring Ali starts firing up with kicks on Joe. Ali drops Joe and looks for the 450 splash, but Joe rolls out of the way. Joe immediately follows up with the Coquina Clutch and Ali goes to sleep. The referee calls for the bell after a short match. Winner: WWE United States Champion Samoa Joe
After the match, Joe takes his title and clutches it as his music hits. We go to replays.
WWE Champion “The New” Daniel Bryan makes his entrance and we go to a commercial break.
Back from the commercial break and Michael Cole is in the ring to preside over the contract signing for The WWE Championship Match at WrestleMania.
He introduces Kofi Kingston, Big E does the usual deal and The New Day make their entrance.
The New Day are in a festive mood as Daniel Bryan waves Cole off and says that he’s got it from here. Bryan says that he knows Kofi is going to sign this contract and that they are going to wrestle at WrestleMania and he is not here to stop him from signing, he is here to educate the masses as he has all along. Bryan then says that he’s got a very important life lesson to teach Baltimore, who he calls “so ignorant.”
The lesson is “do not be complacent.” Don’t be complacent the way Kingston has, don’t think good is good enough for eleven years, do not be complacent. And actually he has another lesson, “don’t be a bystander in your own lives.” Bryan then says that Kofi has been a bystander, sitting on the sidelines and waiting for others to push him to the top like Kingston has, watching and hoping while Xavier & Big E pushed him.
Bryan gets increasingly agitated before calming down again and saying that he has got one more. “Don’t mistake a fad for reality.” He has been in Kofi’s shoes, the way they chanted “Yes!” for him is the same way they chant “Kofi!” for him and he knows how he feels. He knows it reverberates through his body and he feels like this love makes him stronger, but the reality is he doesn’t feed off them, they feed off of him.
Because they are parasites, you see and once they’re done sucking all the positivity out of him, they’ll discard him. This gets an “Asshole!” chant, to which Bryan says that is what they say to all the great truth-tellers. Bryan then addresses Kingston again and says that he better suck it in because this is going to be the best it’s ever going to be. Kofi’s finally had enough and gets up, telling Bryan to sit down and shut his mouth while he gets educated.
Kofi says that Bryan claims to know what he’s feeling, but the more he hears him talk, the more he knows Bryan doesn’t know a damn thing about him. He became World Heavyweight Champion within his first two years and he watched that, not as a bystander, but to observe and understand and here is the thing. Bryan hasn’t been through what he’s been through. Eleven years, no singles title matches and that’s okay because it all lead to this moment.
Kofi then says that he sees it in Bryan’s eyes, how he trembles and plays mind games, because he knows Kofi is ready. Kofi then says that the one thing they have in common is that he knows what all this feels like and he’s scared as hell because he knows what comes next. What comes next is at WrestleMania, Kofi beats him and becomes WWE Champion. Kofi then signs the contract. Cole takes the contract and gets the hell out of there as Kingston stares Bryan down and SmackDown LIVE goes off the air.
