Tonight’s Smackdown comes to us live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Tonight we will see the fallout of Brock Lesnar’s attack on The Bloodline last week, Sasha Banks vs Rhea Ripley vs Shayna Baszler vs Queen Zelina in a fatal-4-way match, and Shinsuke Nakamura vs Jimmy Uso.

The show kicks off with a video package that highlighted recent events between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. After the video package, we see Brock Lesnar standing in the back waiting by Roman Reigns locker room. He gets interviewed by Kayla Braxton who asks about his consequences for last week.

Brock says he brought a new SUV for Roman, and he spoke with upper management who let him know that unless he’s provoked, he’s not allowed to contact Roman Reigns. Brock says he will hang out in Roman’s locker room until someone provokes him and heads into the room.

Brock sits on the couch to watch Smackdown and puts his feet on the coffee table and breaks it intentionally. We then see Rick Boogs out on the entrance ramp hyping up the crowd. Boogs plays Shinsuke Nakamura out and Nakamura makes his way to the ring. McAfee is also seen having a fun time dancing to Nakamura’s theme song. They show a recap video of what happened between the teams last week.

After the match, a message from Roman Reigns appears on the screen and shows him and Heyman sitting in the back of a car. Reigns says he went to the best steakhouse in all of NYC and stopped at MSG. He warns Brock that he better leave his locker room before he gets to the Barclays Center or he will take him out.

Ronda Rousey makes her way out to the ring next. They show a hype video for their match at WrestleMania for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. Rousey gets on the mic and says she’s not going to take her title. She says that Charlotte will have to give it to her when she wins it.

Rousey says we can call her the Smackdown Champion after WrestleMania and calls out Charlotte to get her “barbie a**” out there. Charlotte appears on the big screen and says she won’t step foot in that low-rent city known as Brooklyn and gets booed for it.

Rousey says that when she was 14 she broke her first arm and liked it. Charlotte says that she has run out of ways to hurt her, and says that if she was there live tonight, she would throw her off the Brooklyn Bridge.
