Here's what she said "I don't think she's underestimating me, I think she knows who she is and she knows what she's capable of but like I said, she's never faced me... but like I said, it's a matter of what 'what am I capable of myself". But before she had much time to celebrate, Asuka's music hit and the undefeated Japanese superstar danced her way down to the ring.
And now, the Best and Worst of WWE SmackDown Live for March 6, 2018. In fact, it was a refreshing change of pace that made sense considering what the Bludgeon Brothers put both teams through at Fastlane. Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Line speculated that Daniel Bryan will be a part of the match involving Shane, Kevin, and Sami, as reported by Ringside News. Below, you'll find the winners of each match as it happens. After the physical barrage was over, all five members of The New Day and Usos had to at least be assisted to the back, while Xavier Woods had to be taken out in a stretcher. "The Phenomenal One" will square off with John Cena, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin and Dolph Ziggler with the victor heading to New Orleans to face 2018 Royal Rumble victor Shinsuke Nakamura.
A fortnight ago Cena had talked about a potential match with The Phenom, but cited that management would not allow it. All eyes were on John Cena if he will be the 17 time WWE Champion or not. However, my own personal six-pack challenge will be sitting at home and getting through a full six-pack during this match. If they have to combine forces to take down the bludgeon brothers before taking on each other at Wrestlemania I would be down for that.
Orton performed an RKO on Bobby Roode to win his first-ever United States Championship.
John Cena has found his opponent for WrestleMania. In the ending moments of the gruelling duel, Natalya tried to cheat by handing over the "Money In The Bank" (MITB) briefcase to Carmella to use it on Becky, while the referee was being distracted by Naomi at the ringside. Owens and Zayn finally made it personal again with an attack that should be a great highlight on the WrestleMania package for the inevitable tag team match that will come out of this angle. In terms of storytelling, is it more compelling a story for Cena's journey to end with a record 17th title run attempt?
But other than to give Roode a quick feud for WrestleMania and to give Orton a meaningful place on the card, the victory likely won't have a long-term impact. This opens the door for Nia Jax to do her best Batista impersonation and face Alexa Bliss.
