WWE Smackdown Live Results from Indianapolis (03/13/18)

Full results:

  • AJ Styles opened the show to talk about Wrestlemania and his upcoming title defense. He says he earned everything he got up to this point and is then interrupted by Shinsuke Nakamura, who promises that his Wrestlemania dream will come true and that he will capture the WWE Championship.
  • AJ Styles def. Rusev [w/Aiden English] by DQ when English attacked Styles
    • After the match, Nakamura stalled a bit before saving Styles from a 2-on-1 attack.
  • Big E and Jimmy Uso agree to team up to get some revenge on the Bludgeon Brothers for the sake of their respective (injured) partners. Before the match could begin, the makeshift tag team attacked the brothers and had a duel with them with steel chairs against the brothers' mallets. Finally, the match began...
  • The Bludgeon Brothers def. Big E/Jimmy Uso by pinfall
  • Sami Zayn blames his loss at Fastlane on Shane McMahon but ultimately Kevin Owens for his obsession with Shane costing Sami the title.
  • Women's Champion Charlotte Flair and Asuka had a face-to-face confrontation in the ring with both vowing to defeat the other at Wrestlemania.
  • Randy Orton, the new United States Champion, came down to the ring to talk about his big victory at Fastlane. He puts Roode over as a very tough competitor but then got interrupted by Roode himself who is invoking his rematch clause at Wrestlemania. However, Jinder Mahal broke that up and promised to beat Roode in singles action tonight just like he did to Orton last week.
  • Jinder Mahal [w/Sunil Singh] def. Bobby Roode by pinfall when Singh interfered
    • After the match, Orton laid out Mahal with the RKO
  • Kevin Owens is stopped by Renee Young and blames this whole thing on Sami Zayn (for trying to steal the victory at Fastlane) and Shane McMahon (for being at ringside in the first place). He says he has no problem opening Sami's eyes up to see the truth about Shane's interference in Owens' affairs.
  • Carmella def. Naomi by pinfall
  • Shane McMahon came down to the ring to talk about his issues with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. He decides to take an indefinite leave of absence before announcing that Owens will face Zayn at Wrestlemania. Kevin came out to say that he didn't care and he could take out Sami just like that. This led to the arrival of Sami Zayn, who told Shane that the only reason he booked the match is because the crowd cheered when Kevin and Sami fought each other at Fastlane. Shane is baffled but then is shocked when Owens and Zayn assault Shane and double-team him. They take out referees that try to intervene and then smash Shane into the turnbuckle post while wearing a chair around his neck. Kevin and Sami drag him all the way to the back before Owens powerbombs him onto a bunch of staging equipment.
