Current participants for the WrestleMania 33 match now include current champion Alexa Bliss, Naomi, Mickie James, Carmella, Becky Lynch and Natalya. Although it’s tentatively believed that other Superstars may still join the match.

WWE SmackDown Live Results (03/28) – Final Go Home Show For WrestleMania 33

“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.

Contract signing between Shane McMahon and AJ Styles

Daniel Bryan’s music hits to loud “YES” chants as the Smackdown Live general manager makes his way to the ring. We see a table and two chairs in the ring as it’s time for the contract signing. The crowd starts with the “Daniel Bryan” chants as he thanks the crowd and asks them if they’re ready for Wrestlemania. Bryan welcomes Shane McMahon as “Here comes the money” plays and the Smackdown Live commissioner gets ready for the contract signing. Bryan introduces Shane’s opponent for Wrestlemania, AJ Styles! Styles gets in the ring as both men sit.

Shane starts off by saying that 8 months ago when Smackdown became Smackdown Live, he and Bryan had a vision to make it the land of opportunity. Where management wouldn’t push their own agendas. And no matter what has happened between them, he thinks he is one of the greatest talents to ever step foot through the ropes. And that he truly is phenomenal. AJ says they actually agree on something and that yes, he is phenomenal. The crowd starts an “AJ Styles” chant. Shane says he used the feel from the crowd and it catapulted him into winning the WWE championship. But after that, he got arrogant. And it was that arrogance and ego which cost him the WWE championship. And since he wasn’t supposed to be at Wrestlemania, AJ put himself on the card by attacking him. Shane says if AJ doesn’t bring his A game, how phenomenal will he feel when it’s his hand being raised at Wrestlemania?

AJ asks Shane if he knows what kind of match they’re having. Not a HIAC match, not falls count anywhere. Where if he’s out of the ring for more than 10 seconds, he’ll lose. No tables, ladders or chairs. If he uses anything, he’ll be disqualified. It’s what we call a “traditional match” and he doesn’t know if Shane has ever been in one. And when he gets in the ring with him, he’ll have entered the world of AJ Styles. And that in the ring, he is untouchable. AJ says he will embarass him on every level. He says Shane has been in the ring with Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin, The Rock and last year with the Undertaker. But here’s the thing, he’s never been in the ring with somebody like AJ Styles before. He is all around the best performer to ever step foot in a WWE ring. And at Wrestlemania, Shane will find out how phenomenal he really is. AJ signs the contract and moves the table as Daniel Bryan interferes.

Bryan tells them to calm down and asks for them to shake hands. Shane extends his hand and AJ walks out of the ring.

Later tonight, Luke Harper against Bray Wyatt. Up next, Becky Lynch against Carmella.

-Commercial Break-

Becky Lynch vs. Carmella

Alexa Bliss and Mickie James are at ringside for this women’s match. Becky Lynch comes out first and James Ellsworth’s music hits. He tells the fans to listen up. He says he is the handsom specimen called James Ellsworth and he demands respect as he presents the princess of Staten Island New York, Carmella. The bell rings and we’re under way. Carmella calls James to the ring apron as she takes gum out of her mouth and gives it to James who puts it in his mouth. She slides in the ring and takes Becky down. She slams her head onto the ring and goes for the cover but barely a 1 count. Becky gets up and fires back with an inziguri.

Alexa and Mickie James are arguing on commentary. They both get up and start fighting each other outside the ring. Alexa and Mickie both slide in the ring and Mickie James hits Carmella as the referee calls for the bell. All four women fight in the ring. Carmella slides out and Mickie gives the Mick kick to Alexa. Mickie and Becky are left in the ring as James points to the Wrestlemania sign and we go to a commercial break.

Winner: No contest

-Commercial Break-

Women’s Tag Team Match

During the commercial break, the women’s match turned into a tag team match. Mickie James and Becky Lynch against Carmella and Alexa Bliss. Carmella and Mickie James are the two legal women in the match. Carmella goes for a slap but Mickie ducks and delivers a kick. Alexa goes to attack Mickie on the ring apron but Mickie hits her off. She turns around and Carmella knocks Mickie down and delivers forearms. She goes for the cover but a 2 count. Carmella tags Alexa in. Alexa with a European headlock on Mickie James. Mickie gets up and hits Alexa to get out of it. Alexa takes her back down and goes for the cover and another 2 count. Alexa with another headlock on Mickie James. Mickie lifts out of it but Alexa takes her down right a right hand and Natalya’s music hits as she comes down to the ring and another commercial break.

-Commercial Break-

We come back and Natalya is on commentary as the match continues. Mickie makes the tag to Becky Lynch and Alexa tags Carmella in. Becky with a flying forearm. Natalya gets off commentary and into the ring as Becky hits her with a forearm. The referee is distracted as Carmella sends Becky to the ropes, James trips Becky and Carmella gets the cover, 1, 2, 3! All five women now in the ring fighting. Naomi’s music hits and Natalya runs to the ramp and Naomi lands a flying hurricanrana. She gets in the ring and cleans house taking them all out.

She grabs the microphone. She says she knows they were wondering if she would be back for Wrestlemania. And she’s back. She enters the Smackdown Live! Women’s title match. She points to the Wrestlemania sign and says on Sunday in her hometown, they will feel the power.

Daniel Bryan is on the phone and Tylor Breeze comes in dressed as Nikki Bella and asks if he wants him (or her) at Wrestlemania. Bryan says no as Fandango comes into the picture. Bryan asks them if they would like to compete tonight where the winner would be included in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Wrestlemania. THey both agree.

Shinsuke Nakamura On Wanting To Debut At WrestleMania, His ‘Hybrid Martial Arts Style’, More

– WWE NXT Star Shinsuke Nakamura recently spoke with ESPN to help promote his upcoming match against Bobby Roode at NXT TakeOver: Orlando, check out the highlights below:

On debuting at WrestleMania:

“I want to go to the biggest places like WrestleMania. We will see, but I want to give some inspiration for people all over the world. Wrestling is an art. Every culture has an art, like music and dancing and fighting. So that’s my base. If I think about it like art, I can connect with everybody.”

On his style in ring:

“Everything is from my real life, from the moving of the fingers and the body movement — that’s from classic ballet or martial arts. I trained in classic ballet and martial arts. Some things come from yoga, some things come from kobudo or kung fu, I just mixed them together. It’s like hybrid martial arts style”
