Jermaine Royster reporting

Smackdown comes to us live from the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia and tonight is the calm before the storm. With WrestleMania 33 this Sunday we get to to some loose ends tied up as WWE Champion Bray Wyatt will battle former Wyatt Family member Luke Harper. Harper and Orton both were at odds with Bray Wyatt and in now seems Luke wants a piece of the champion as well. The AJ Styles/Shane McMahon feud continues as they will have a sit down for the contract signing of their match on Sunday.

Smackdown GM Daniel Bryan makes his way down to the ring to start the show, the ring is set for the Styles/Shane McMahon contract signing. McMahon comes to the ring and AJ follows then both men sit at the table in the ring. Shane says his vision of Smackdown Live was to be the great show and he says AJ Styles was always apart of that idea, Shane then calls AJ “Phenomenal”. Shane talks about AJ Styles captivated all the crowds since coming to the WWE and how it catapulted him to winning the WWE Championship but somewhere along the way he got arrogant. Shane says AJ’s ego got in the way when he lost his title to Cena and in matches with Randy Orton. Shane then says he will give everything he has at WrestleMania and that AJ better bring his “A” game. Shane signs the contract then AJ begins to sign then stops, he asked Shane does he knows what he’s getting himself into. AJ says this wont be a Hell in a Cell or some kind of gimmick match, this will be a traditional match where he is the one at home. AJ says they can take it to the air because he will embarrass Shane on ever level. AJ says Shane has been in the ring with just about everyone including The Undertaker last year but he has never faced someone with the caliber of AJ Styles. AJ says at WrestleMania Shane will ind out how phenomenal he is, Styles signs the contract and the two have a stare down which Daniel Bryan has to step in between. Daniel Bryan asks for a hand shake and Shane extends but AJ walks back to the locker room.

Miz welcomes Cena to the ring then Cena says the skit was very funny because he does have his house rules. Cena then says the jokes were fine but then when the Miz broke character he said things he shouldn’t have. Cena says Miz & Maryse actually believe what they have been spewing then Cena continues to put down Miz & Maryse. Cena then goes to Maryse and says what are you doing here and what has she ever done? Cena talks about how last week Nikki Bella body slammed a guy on TV but then says that Miz is only married to Maryse so he could be on Total Divas. Cena agains tells Miz not to mess with him because they sound ridiculous with their unreal egos. Cena then undresses and stands in front of Miz and tells him he will crush him on Sunday. Cena then calls Miz a pussy then tell Miz to jump if he’s feeling froggy, Miz & Maryse back away and go up the ramp. Miz & Maryse go back as if they want to fight but they retreat back to the ramp.
