Here are the results from tonight’s (Tues. March 28, 2017) episode of WWE SmackDown Live (courtesy of PWInsider):
We are in Richmond, Virginia and your announcers are John Layfield, Tom Phillips, and David Otunga.
Daniel Bryan makes his way to the ring and the Contract Signing Table is back in the ring.
Daniels asks everyone if they are ready for Wrestlemania.
Daniel brings out Shane McMahon and Shane does the Shane-O Shuffle to the ring.
Daniel brings out AJ Styles.
AJ sits down and so does Shane.
Shane says when Smackdown became Smackdown Live, they felt that this show was going to be the place for opportunity. Management would not push their own agendas. A place where everyone can tune in and families can be entertained. AJ was always part of that vision. Shane says that AJ is one of the greatest talents to step foot through these ropes and be in this ring. Shane says that AJ truly is phenomenal.
AJ says that they agree on something. He says he is pretty phenomenal.
Shane says that AJ was all over the world before he came to WWE. People were chanting his name (and the crowd chants his name). AJ used the crowd to catapult himself to the WWE Championship. AJ’s ego got too big and he became arrogant. That arrogance cost AJ his title to John Cena. It also cost him against Randy Orton. Shane says that AJ’s ego got in the way of him not being a part of Wrestlemania.
Shane says that he makes whoever he faces in the ring reach deep down and give their best. Last week, he saw AJ’s face and AJ knew that he had to give everything he’s got. If AJ does not give his “A” game, how phenomenal will you feel when Shane’s hand is raised at Wrestlemania?
Shane signs the contract.
AJ asks Shane if he knows what kind of match he is in for. It is not a Hell in a Cell match. It is not a Falls Count Anywhere Match. If you are outside the ring for more than ten seconds, you will be counted out. There will be no tables or chairs or ladders. It will be a traditional match. When you step into this ring, you step into the world of AJ Styles. In this ring, AJ says he is untouchable. If you want to come in here and wrestle, they will wrestle. If he wants to lay hands, they can lay hands. If they take it to the air, he will embarrass Shane on every level.
You have been in the ring with the Who’s Who of WWE. Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin, The Rock, and The Undertaker. Shane has never been in the ring with AJ Styles and AJ is the greatest to step in a WWE ring. At Wrestlemania you will find out how phenomenal AJ is.
AJ signs the contract and they get face to face. AJ pushes the table aside and Daniel gets between them.
Daniel tells them to calm down and he asks for a handshake. Shane offers his hand and AJ leaves the ring.

Miz asks will John accept the proposal? We go to commercial.
We are back and it is time to see if “John Cena” will say yes to “Nikki’s” Proposal. “John” says no because he hustles the fans, he has people who are loyal to him, and he only respects Money. “John” says that Miz and Maryse will humiliate them at Wrestlemania and he will have to fade into obscurity. John says he does not want to have that reminder around him.
Miz says that they will make sure that Wrestlemania is your curtain call. They will leave you with nothing. You will not have a career in Hollywood. You are a circus act.

We return to the ring and . . .
John Cena’s music plays and he comes to the ring with Nikki Bella.
Miz says it is a shock it took them so long to interrupt them.
John says he was laughing with everyone else. He says he made fun off all of the house rules. He liked the Robo-Cena. He also liked how they pointed out that John and Nikki weren’t married.
Cena says he can enjoy a spoof about Total Bellas, but you believe what you think. You talk about how Nikki kept you out of WWE, but you are standing in a WWE ring. John says they didn’t ask you back because they didn’t want you back. John says Miz talks about Cena’s fifteen year plan to go to Hollywood, but John says he is as brand loyal as Vince McMahon. John says he is doing a movie and is coming back. Others have done it. Dean Ambrose has done it. Randy Orton has done it. Triple H has done it. Sheamus has done it. Even Miz has done it, but he made crappy remakes of what John did.
John wants to know what Maryse is doing here. The women are given a chance to do things better than men. Last week, Nicole lifted a 220 pound man. Maryse takes a paycheck and is a waste of space. John says that Miz begged for Maryse to come back so they could be on Total Divas.
John asks Miz and Maryse how many kids do they have and he asks Miz if he is firing blanks. John says he told Miz not to bring a knife to a gun fight but you don’t listen. You would realize how ridiculous you sound. You always blame someone when you fall down. John says he is going to punch Miz in the mouth on Sunday.
John says he has stripped away everything that makes people think of him. John says he will crush Miz at Wrestlemania. They will destroy Miz and Maryse at Wrestlemania because you waste you time memorizing his house rules but he forgot the one main rule. If you want to be tough, act tough. They are gutless, spineless cowards. Cena wants Miz to prove him wrong that they are not the ‘shhh’ It Couple. Cena wants Miz to make it happen. He tells Miz to take a shot but if you swing, he will swing back.
Cena says if Maryse makes a step, Nikki will knock the Botox out of your cheeks.
Miz and Maryse back away and leave the ring, but they go Miz goes back and he gets on the apron. Maryse pulls Miz off the apron and they walk to the back.
