Smackdown TV report for 04/05/2024

Arena: Wells Fargo Center
City: Philadelphia, PA

Smackdown is live from Philadelphia on this WrestleMania weekend. Kevin Owens is announced first for the opening segment to host his KO Show.

Kevin announces his guest, Randy Orton. Logan Paul interrupted the interview from Lincoln Financial Field. Logan called the fans and Kevin and Randy, idiots. Kevin said this guy talks a lot of trash for a guy who is only right across the street. As Kevin and Randy leave to go after Logan, Grayson Waller and Austin Theory crawl out from under the ring.

Out in the parking lot, Randy can’t get in the car, Kevin pulls up on a golf cart and they take off as Waller and Theory run after them.

The Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal

To begin, Pretty Deadly go after Omos and Kit Wilson was sent flying over the rope by Omos and Elton Prince just jumped over the top rope on his own and ran to the back with his partner.

The end comes down to Big Bronson Reed and Ivar after Ivar eliminated both Akira Tozawa and Otis.

Ivar misses with the moonsault, and Reed hits him with a rolling senton and clotheslines Ivar over the top rope.

Winner: Big Bronson Reed

Karrion Kross says he started this fight with Bobby Lashley to get him a spot on WrestleMania since they did not have one last year.

Logan Paul made his way to the ring. Paul trash talks Philadelphia, Orton and Owens. He says his associates Waller and Theory are going to ambush and beat down Orton and Owens right now. We then see Waller and Theory looking for Orton and Owens at Lincoln Financial Field but can’t find them.

Just then Orton and Owens climb out from under the ring where Logan is standing in. Paul tries to run but Kevin catches him and throws him into Randy who gives him an upper cut and Owens hits the stunner as Randy sets up for RKO. Owens helps Paul up and spins him into Randy to hit the RKO.

In the back Dragon Lee is laid out.  Carlito yelled for help and did not know who did it.

Zelina Vega VS. Elektra Lopez

Zelina hit the DDT and went for the pin, but Dominik got on the apron and Zelina smacks him. Rey pulls him down as Zelina turns around Lopez hits her with a slam and pins her.

Winner: Elektra Lopez

After the match, Dominik and Santos attack Rey and Santos pushes Andrade to go get Rey but as Santos tries to pull Rey’s mask off, Andrade clotheslines Dominik, then kicks Santos and throws him over the top rope. As Rey staggers to his feet, he is greeted by a handshake by Andrade and a hug and Zelina gives him a big hug as they stand in the middle of the ring.

Naomi and Bianca Belair are in the ring to talk about their match against Damage Control at WrestleMania. They soon introduced their tag team partner for this weekend’s match Jade Gargill.

Jey Uso is shown getting ready for his match with his brother Solo tonight and Jimmy tomorrow night.

Rey is shown talking to Andrade and Zelina and a referee came in and said Dragon Lee will not be able to be medically able to compete tomorrow and Andrade said he will be his partner.

New Catch Republic VS. Grayson Waller & Austin Theory

Bate and Dunne hit his finisher on Waller for the win.

Winners: New Catch Republic

The New Catch Republic are immediately attacked by the Judgment Day who also attack Theory.

Bayley is next shown talking about her career and how and why she started Damage Control. She then talked about her match against Iyo this weekend.

LA Knight is next to the ring. LA gets a massive ovation and talks trash about AJ Styles and what he’s going to do to him at WrestleMania.

Bobby Lashley, B-Fab and the Street Profits talk about their match with Karrion Kross and the AOP in a Philadelphia Street fight.

Main Event Jey Uso VS. Solo Sikoa

As Jey went for the win, Jimmy Uso came out and attacked Jey. They double team Jey but Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins come out to help Jey. Cody then took his weight belt and beat Jimmy and Solo like the Rock did to him and Seth on Raw.

As Jimmy tries to leave, Jey catches him and throws him back in the ring. Cody hit Crossroads on Jimmy, then Seth hit Jimmy with the belt and Jey splashes his brother.

Cody gets a microphone. Cody says 40 years of WrestleMania, can you feel that? Cody says he and Seth are going to slap the Final Boss so hard he is going to remember how to be the People’s Champion and then on Sunday he is going to dethrone Roman Reigns. And Sunday, when one good story ends an even better one begins.
