3/13 WWE SmackDown Road To WrestleMania Results from Charleston, WV
The advertised main event over a month ago was Cena vs Styles for the WWE Title,
with Bray winning the title back at Elimination Chamber, it was changed with in
the last few weeks to Cena vs Styles in a Street Fight . The WWE Champ Bray Wyatt,
Harper, Orton, Ambrose, Corbin, Miz, Slater, Becky, Nikki, Dolph, and Alpha were
all advertised to be on the card as well.
— Six-Man Tag Team Match: Kalisto, Rhyno & Heath Slater defeated Curt Hawkins &
Breezeango when Slater pinned Hawkins. Slater is the homestate guy and was a big fan
— Dolph Ziggler defeated Apollo Crews with the Sweet Chin Music. Dolph stole the
show and still received a good reaction from the fans.
— SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship Match: American Alpha defeated The Usos to
retain the Tag Titles following the Grand Amplitude. Good Tag action that went back
and fourth a bit and surprisingly the Usos had a good crowd reaction.
— Intercontinental Championship Match: Dean Ambrose defeated Baron Corbin via DQ
after Corbin attacked him with a chair.
— WWE Championship Match: Bray Wyatt defeated Luke Harper to retain the WWE Title
following a Sister Abigail. The WWE Champion is super over in West Virginia. They
set up the steel steps in the aisle and there was a moment when Bray Irish whipped
Harper into the steps for an incredible bump. There was also a really cool moment
during the match when Bray executed Jake Roberts DDT and even signaled for it just
like The Snake did years ago.
— Eight-Woman Tag Team Match: Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Tamina , and Asuka beat
Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, Natalya and Carmella . Nikki made Carmella tap out with
the STF. The face Team was really over and Asuka was very impressive and this was
her second in ring appearance on the main roster because last night she made her
debut at MSG.
Miz came out and acknowledged a sign in the front row which said “Miz Eats Boogers,”
he assured the crowd that he did not eat nose goblins. The crowd gave him a huge
“Yes” chant and he said “when my hand goes up, your mouth goes shut,” like a
kindergarten teacher. Miz then cut a promo on the entire locker room saying nobody
wanted to face him because they were all scared. Randy Orton came out and shut Miz
up to start their match.
— Randy Orton defeated The Miz (w/Maryse) Match was back and fourth with Miz playing
his great heel role as usual and Maryse tried to distract Orton. Orton attempted the
RKO a few times but Miz escaped and finally the Viper hit an RKO out of nowhere for
— Street Fight: John Cena defeated AJ Styles. The two men used chairs, kendo sticks,
and trash cans against each other. The match got very stiff and these guys let each
other have it After a good twenty minutes. Styles kicked out of the first AA and
Cena also kicked out of a Styles Clash. Cena made a comeback and gave AJ Styles an
Attitude Adjustment through a table for the win. The crowd went home very happy
after seeing some brutal action at the Charleston Civic Center.
