Smackdown Live Results 3/5/19
Smackdown starts with a Memorial Picture for the passing of King Kong Bundy! RIP
We go to the arena and out comes WWE Champion Daniel Bryan & Erick Rowan. We go to a video package to recap last week’s big announcement of Kevin Owens instead of Kofi Kingston to face Daniel Bryan at FastLane. We go back to the ring and Daniel Bryan talks about how the match was changed. He said this is the fans turn to be silent and Rowan tells the fans to “Shut Up” and the fans Chant for Kofi Kingston. Daniel says he isn’t out here to talk about Kofi and why would he? Kofi is only a supporting player, Kofi is exactly where he should be. He says that Mr. McMahon was right to replace Kofi. However, Kevin Owens does not deserve the shot either, He is says Owens is dangerous because he has nothing to loose but he has everything to loose. If he loose’s the planet looses. Kevin Owens comes to the ring and says that months ago he left and became a fan again, spent time with family and as much as he loved doing that, he knew he had to come back when Daniel Bryan became Champion. He said he watched Bryan throw the WWE Championship in the trash (Daniel says that is exactly where it belongs) and Owen’s said that is why he came back. He says Bryan deserves to get his stupid condescending mouth shut and that is exactly what he is going to do. Bryan says he doesn’t have backup because he doesn’t have any friends left, and Owens says that he is right but that is okay because he already pinned him in the ring last week. This Sunday he will take the WWE Championship from him at Fastlane. Rowan steps up in Owens face and KO punches him. Bryan goes to attack Owens but KO goes for a stunner but Rowan comes back and slams him to the ground. Bryan holds up the Championship while Rowan lays in front of him. Bryan’s music hits as they leave the ring.
