WWE SmackDown results, live blog (Mar. 31, 2016): WrestleMania 32 go home show

WWE SmackDown comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Mar. 31, 2016) from Brooklyn, New York with a taped show on the USA Network featuring all the latest build to the WrestleMania 32 pay-per-view (PPV) extravaganza scheduled for this coming Sunday night in Arlington, Texas.

Because SmackDown is a taped show, you can simply go read the spoilers to know everything that happens (find them by clicking here). We will provide results below.

You can use this space to discuss all the events as they occur, however, and it's probably going to enhance your viewing experience. In fact, I know it is because we're a lot of fun around here.

Enjoy the show!



Geno here. Deal with it.

AJ Styles vs. Heath Slater

They did a pre-match promo with the Social Outcasts. They ran down AJ by saying "you can call yourself Phenomenal but we're going to show you we're FOUR-NOMENAL!"

Good lord, these idiots are lame as hell.

AJ reacted with the appropriate mix of casual indifference and mild annoyance.

You can guess how the match went. Slater did his thing for a bit but Styles came back and had his way with him. They teased a roll up win for Slater but there's just no way they were having AJ do a job this close to WrestleMania. He pinned Slater after the Phenomenal Forearm.

The "live elements" they had promoted appears to be just Renee Young and Byron Saxton talking about stuff and previewing WrestleMania from Axxess in Dallas.



Jey Uso vs. D-Von Dudley

Jimmy and Bubba Ray were ringside for the match. D-Von took control early on and put the boots to Jey for an extended period of time. Jey's comeback came when he moved out of the way of a diving headbutt. Later, Bubba Ray tried to interfere but Jimmy took him out with a big clothesline off the steps. It didn't matter. D-Von pushed Jey off the top and hit a spinebuster to get the pin.

Dean Ambrose vs. Erick Rowan

This is the main event.

Considering they went for around 12 minutes or so, I'm surprised with how well Rowan held up here against an opponent like Ambrose in a situation like this. He was in control for much of the match until Dean used a Superplex to kick off his comeback. That's when he got all his stuff in. Rowan had a few teasers but it wasn't long until Ambrose hit Dirty Deeds and scored the clean pinfall in the middle of the ring.

See you at WrestleMania.
