WWE SmackDown 3/14/17: AJ Styles Fired From ‘SmackDown’ After Assaulting McMahon

Daniel Bryan spoke on the phone backstage and commented that The Miz had prepared a special episode of Miz TV. In addition, there would be a face-to-face between Alexa Bliss and Mickie James. AJ Styles appeared, saying he wanted to talk to Shane McMahon, while Bryan informed him that Shane wasn’t here yet.

To this, AJ said he would go out in the ring to say what he has in mind. AJ Styles went out to the ring to cut a promo, and it appeared that he was quite upset. He expressed his reservations about how Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon are always pitched against him.

In WWE SmackDown 3/14/17, AJ Styles and Shane McMahon were the main characters. The Phenomenal One complained of no rival at WrestleMania 33.

“If you complain about that, then you have it now,” McMahon said at the end of the show in Pennsylvania. Yes, Shane will face AJ Styles at the next big WWE event.

Becky Lynch Vs. Natalya

Remember what happened in past episodes of SmackDown Live? Natalya beat Becky Lynch when they were partners and had beaten the pair of Alexa Bliss and Mickie James. This Tuesday, they faced each other.

The victory went to Becky, who surprised Natalya with the “screwdriver.” The fighter could not bear the pain and therefore tapped out. No one expected the entrance of Carmella, who struck hard.

Carmella appeared after the bout and attacked both Becky and Natalya. James Ellsworth was with her to celebrate. Dasha Fuentes then interviewed Carmella and James Ellsworth backstage. Carmella claimed she will be confronting Alexa Bliss at WrestleMania, aiming to be the next female champion.

Meanwhile, The Miz and Maryse made their way into the ring for Miz TV. The two recalled how they attacked John Cena and Nikki Bella last week, and how Talking Smack later talked about their feuds. Maryse presumed that she married to the ring, and that Nikki could never be this fortunate.

Maryse also spoke of how Nikki negotiated the first contract of Total Divas, making more money for being Cena’s girlfriend. Maryse even called Nikki a liar and a traitor. Cena and Nikki appeared, and made their way toward the ring, but Miz and Maryse hastily vacated.

Nikki said that she and Maryse were never best friends. She added that whatever Maryse uttered was a mere invention to make Nikki look bad. Nikki then invited Maryse to a fight, after which Miz intervened, saying that Maryse had nothing to prove.

Alexa Bliss Vs. Mickie James

Alexa hurt Mickie on the ropes, causing her to hit her head on one of the posts and dropping her out of the ring. Alexa was clearly the dominator, but Mickie made a remarkable comeback. As Alexa tossed Mickie by the hair and tried knocking her with a hard forearm blow, Mickie James executed a perfect Mick Kick to go in for the victory.

Alexa thought she would win the fight. However, James recovered and did an amazing rotating kick. James got the count of three and defeated the SmackDown women’s champion.

Mojo Rawley Vs. Dolph Ziggler

Although it seems incredible, Dolph Ziggler lost the fight after leaving the ring. The long-haired fighter approached two drivers and received the count of ten for being out of the ring. What did Ziggler complain about?

American Alpha Vs. The Usos (Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso)

American Alpha, the WWE tag champions, took a hard defeat. Jimmy hit the key to Chad Gable while Jason Jordan was looking for a chair. All this distracted the referee and the Usos achieved the win, which was an important victory for this team.

Renee Young interviewed AJ Styles backstage and asked him what his intentions are as far as Shane McMahon is concerned. AJ stated that while WrestleMania is the ultimate attraction, he will seek his own emotions. Styles noticed Shane coming at him, approaching cautiously to attack him by surprise, and AJ hit McMahon, throwing various objects at him. AJ then rammed Shane head-first into the window of a car, leaving Shane bleeding.

Shane wasn’t in a very good condition, and he was examined by doctors. Even though he managed to injure his rival, AJ Styles didn’t receive a good reaction from the other WWE competitors. Backstage, fighters reproached Styles for what he did. Daniel Bryan called AJ a coward, who has lost all respect. Things aren’t going well for Styles, especially after it was announced that he is going to be fired from WWE Smackdown after assaulting McMahon, according to a report of Fox Sports.
