This week’s episode of WWE SmackDown is taped at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, CA. The show will air on the USA Network on April 14th.
– SmackDown opens with WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz and Maryse. They come out to the ring to host MizTV. Zack Ryder interrupts and challenges The Miz, but Ryder has to face Baron Corvin tonight first.
– Baron Corbin def. Zack Ryder: Corbin got what a correspondent called an “easy win.” After the match, Corbin beat Ryder down but Dolph Ziggler made the save.
– Emma def. Paige: Emma got the win in what was described as a quick match.
– Anderson & Gallows squashed some local wrestlers and cut a promo. This may have been a dark segment.
– Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady def. The Ascension: Enzo and Cass get the win to advance in the tag team tournament.
– AJ Styles def. Alberto Del Rio: Del Rio botched a move and Styles landed on his neck, fans in attendance say it looked bad. AJ won with a roll-up and was holding his neck on the way to the back.
– Fandango and The Golden Truth are backstage for a comedy segment. The Goldust Truth is up next.
– The Vaudevillains def. Goldust and R-Truth: The Vaudevillains won in a “quick match” to advance in the tag team tournament.
– Sami Zayn vs. Chris Jericho – No Contest: Dean Ambrose and Kevin Owens were on commentary and providing distractions. Good action in the ring until Owens interfered to cause the disqualification, which led to the babyfaces clearing the ring standing tall to end SmackDown.
