smackdown live results for 2/21/17

again, I apologize for getting these up late -- but sometimes real life happens

show opend with general manager Daniel Bryan coming to the ring. once there he calls out wome's champion Naomi who makes her way to the ring.

Daniel discusses her injury(no mention of what it is though)  Naomi thanks the fans for everything  and says Daniel know too well what she is feeling and what going through her mind right now)

Naomi then tearfully relinquishes the title to Daniel bryan and he hugs her before she sadly leaves the ring.. as she goes up the ramp alexa bliss comes out and heads to the ring.

she then demands Daniel giver her "her" belt back since she won't get a rematch and acts like a total spoiled brat about it.  he declines and tells her she has a match next and the winner will be the new champion.  he then introduces her opponent-- becky lynch!!

match 1: Becky Lynch vs alexa bliss for the vacated women's title
WINNER: women's champ for the second time, alexa bliss, and she only won by cheating after cheapshotting becky directly in the throat.

segements with dean ambrose,  kalsto and the miz(with maryese)  talking about the battle royal later in the show.

backstage interview with renee young interviewing nattie, nattie acts totally rude, jealous and bitter.

match 2: American alpha vs breezango
WINNERS: American alpha via pinfall.  after the  match the usos come out of the crowd and taunt American alpha.

aj styles, dolph zigler, mojo rawley and luke harper talk about the battle royal

backstage renee talks to nikki about her match with nattie.

match 3: nikki bella vs Natalya neidhart in a falls count anywhere match
WINNER: ( after maryese attacked nikki with a pipe(miz had to pull her off) after nikki accidently knocked her down backstage)  Natalya to me the ending only prove nattie wasn't capable of winning on her own.

baron corbin, and Apollo crews talk about the battle royal

segment with bray wyatt and randy orton

match 4: main event match battle royal to determine the #1 contender for the smackdown heavyweight title.  the participants are: John Cena, Luke Harper, Kalisto, Apollo Crews, Dolph ziggler, Mojo Rawley, Baron Corbin, the miz, Dean Ambrose,  AJ Styles.

it was a decent match. the final two men in the match were luke harper and aj styles, both men went over the top rope and hit the floor at the same time-- Daniel bryan came out and talked to the referees but made no decision on the winner and wyatt and orton then appeared on the screen as wyatt was laughing as the show ended.

smackdown was a good show. I was sadden that Naomi had to give up her hard earned title hopefully this mysterious injury won't keep her out  for too long and she can get the belt back.
