The commentators are Michael Cole and Pat McAfee.
– Tonight is WWE SmackDown, the blue show starts with a video about what happened between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar in recent weeks. Backstage, Brock Lesnar is in front of Roman Reigns’ dressing room. Kayla Braxton asks him a question about the consequences of his actions over the last week. Lesnar replies that he paid a fine, he paid for vehicles and there is one that Roman Reigns is going to like, the one in red blood. Brock Lesnar has been told not to do anything unless provoked, so he will wait quietly in Reigns’ locker room to be provoked. Lesnar walks into the locker room and then sits on the couch like he’s at his mom’s house.

– Enter Ronda Rousey. A video is published about her rivalry against Charlotte Flair. Ronda Rousey takes a microphone and says that she is not going to take Charlotte Flair’s belt. When she goes to type, the champion will give it to her directly and she can call her “SmackDown Champion”. Ronda Rousey tells Charlotte Flair to come from her. The champion appears on the giant screen and asks Ronda Rousey if the latter really thought that she would be in Brooklyn tonight. Set foot in this low-end city? Ronda Rousey ends by saying that if Charlotte Flair defeats her at WrestleMania, it will be the biggest win of her career. If not, it will just be another victory for Rousey.
