Tonight’s SmackDown is headlined by Ricochet defending his Intercontinental Championship against Jinder Mahal. We will also see a rematch from last week when Drew McIntyre faces Sami Zayn, and find out what happens when RK-Bro comes to SmackDown to look for the Usos.

SmackDown kicks off with a recap video of Roman Reigns sending the Usos to Raw and shows what happened after they arrived. After the video ends, RK-Bro makes their way out to the ring and they got a big pop from the crowd.

Riddle gets on the microphone and says how stoked he is to be back on SmackDown with his best friend, Randy. Orton begins talking and says that on Raw, their show, the Usos showed up and challenged them to a title unification match. Orton invites the Usos down to the ring and says if they come out, they will get their answer.

The Usos make their way down to the ring, and each grabs a microphone. Jimmy Uso says that RK-Bro has shown up in Bloodline territory. Jey tells them they are behind enemy lines and they are where the Bloodline resides. Jimmy asks for the answer to the challenge laid out on Monday.

Jey reminds RK-Bro that they are dealing with two twin brothers who have each other’s back, and are the seven-time tag team champions, and the longest-reigning SmackDown Tag Team Champions in history.

Orton says he loves their whole family, but the Usos are a**holes. Orton says SmackDown is his show and they are standing in his ring. Orton says the Usos don’t know who they are messing with and accept the challenge laid out by the Usos on Monday. Both champions hold up their titles and the Usos make their way back up the entrance ramp.

When RK-Bro poses in the ring, the Usos attack Riddle from behind before scurrying back up the entrance ramp. Riddle gets back up and looks angry and ready to fight. The camera goes backstage and we see Sasha Banks and Naomi talking about how they run both shows.

Liv Morgan and Rhea Ripley show up and interrupt Sasha. Naomi tells them the glow always outshines the nightmare. Naomi makes her way down to the ring and she is accompanied by Sasha Banks.

RK-Bro confronts Adam Pearce and Orton says that he wants the title unification match. Pearce says that he’s still waiting to hear back, but says that Riddle can go one on one with Jimmy Uso tonight.

Rhea Ripley makes her way down to the ring, accompanied by Liv Morgan. It is announced that this Monday on Raw, Sasha Banks and Naomi defend the Women’s Tag-Team Championships against Rhea Ripley and Liv Morgan.

Ripley quickly takes over the match using her power. However, Naomi is able to send Rhea to the outside using some of her unique moves and wrestling style. Naomi goes to bang Ripley’s head into the turnbuckle, but Ripley counters and knocks down Naomi.

Ripley goes to the outside and Naomi attempts to hit her with a baseball slide, but Rhea counters and hits Naomi with a clothesline out on the floor to take over the match. This allows Rhea to take over the match.

After the match, we see the Usos walking backstage. Kayla Braxton catches up with them to try and get a comment on what transpired earlier tonight. However, the Usos just ditch her and walk into Reigns’ locker room without saying a word.

Another recap video is shown, this time of Madcap Moss and how he turned on Happy Corbin last week on Smackdown. After the video, Happy Corbin is seen getting interviewed backstage. Corbin says that Madcap Moss was his lackey.

Corbin says that Moss was funny to laugh at. However, he then became an anchor around his neck and says that he dropped some dead weight. Corbin says that if we think he’s happy now, just wait until Moss becomes the laughing stock of SmackDown.

Drew Gulak is seen interviewing Madcap Moss. Moss says that he feels sorry for Corbin. Moss says he thanks Corbin for bringing him to SmackDown and buying him new suspenders. Moss says that he is just glad he can move on.

Madcap Moss vs Humberto (w/ Angel)

Moss makes his way down to the ring first. Humberto makes his way to the ring next, accompanied by Los Lotharios tag-team partner, Angel. They have their famous kiss cam and are able to find someone in the audience.

The match starts off with Angel distracting Moss which creates an opportunity for Humberto to take the fight to Moss. Humberto quickly goes on the attack and gains control of the match, having help from Angel.

Moss fights back but to no avail. Humberto remains in control of the match for the majority of it. However, Moss is able to finally fight back into the match and take out Humberto with a shoulder tackle.

After the match, Angel is screaming at Humberto that he lost to a joke. We see Pearce backstage and he is confronted by Charlotte Flair. Flair wants to know who accepted Rousey’s challenge. Drew Gulak interrupts and asks Pearce how he thinks he did. Charlotte gets annoyed at Gulak and says to meet her in the ring to interview her.

It’s announced that at WrestleMania Backlash, it will be RK-Bro taking on The Usos in a winner-take-all match. Drew Gulak is seen standing in the ring. He introduces Charlotte Flair. Charlotte makes her way down to the ring. Gulak asks if Charlotte is concerned about Ronda’s submission game.

Charlotte said she never refused the “I Quit” match and that she was just trying to protect Ronda. She also says that the humiliation after an “I Quit” match will be much, much worse. Gulak says that Charlotte did tap out at WrestleMania. Charlotte says she was fixing her bra.

Gulak says if the referee was in a better position, Rousey would be standing there as champion right now. Charlotte tells him he is out of line and she didn’t tap out. Charlotte then asks Drew if he quit being a competitor so he could stand there and hold a mic and ask her stupid questions.

Drew looks upset, and Charlotte says that people like him and all the fans are used to quitting. She says that she isn’t a quitter, she’s a winner. She calls herself a submission master and says Gulak doesn’t deserve to interview her. She tells him to get out of her ring.

Gulak turns around to walk out of the ring, but Flair attacks him from behind and locks in the Figure Eight on Gulak, and forces him to say “I Quit.” Four referees come out to break it up and help Gulak. We then see a recap video of Sami Zayn and Drew McIntyre from last week’s SmackDown.

We also see a promo from Gunthar and Ludwig Keiser. Ludwig says that the mat is sacred and Gunthar says that people will obey the ring general.

Drew McIntyre vs Sami Zayn

Drew McIntyre makes his way out to the ring first. Sami Zayn makes his way out to the ring next but brings a microphone with him. Zayn says that for a while now his reputation has taken a major hit. He says that it got even worse since people think he ran away from Drew McIntyre.

Zayn says that he never ran away and he isn’t afraid of anything or anyone. He says he is the master strategist and tells Drew tonight he won’t run or hide and will beat him in the middle of the ring. He says he will regain the respect that people owe him.

The match starts and Zayn rolls to the outside. McIntyre follows and beats him up on the outside for a little bit, before throwing him back in the ring. Zayn rolls back to the outside and tries to run and hide from McIntyre. Zayn hides behind Pat but Drew is able to get to him.
