Sasha and Becky try to team up on Charlotte but she escapes.

    * WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day come to the ring and cut promos on The League of Nations. They have accepted the challenge for WrestleMania 32 and it looks like everyone will be involved.

    * Dean Ambrose is shown at a bar celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.

    * The Social Outcasts come to the ring and hold the show up until Ambrose arrives from his night of partying. Ambrose destroys them all and clears the ring with a kendo stick.

    * AJ Styles vs. WWE Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens in a non-title match is next. Big pops for both and a great match. Styles did tease the Styles Clash at one point. Jericho came out towards the end and distracted Styles, allowing Owens to hit the pop-up powerbomb for the win. After the match, Jericho came in the ring and hit the Codebreaker on Styles. Jericho talked trash to Styles as SmackDown ended.

  2. KO vs Styles in the ME? Awesome. Can't wait to watch. Won't be bothering with anything else, though.
     
  3. It is so typical for WWE to do something like waste the first AJ Styles-Kevin Owens televised match on an episode of SmackDown no one will remember two minutes after it wraps up. The bout is a big-money match, one that could mean a great deal to the hardcore audience if built properly. Throwing it on a show for the sake of filling out a card is hardly the way to go about maximizing its effect.
