** Smackdown Live **

- AJ Styles vs. Shane McMahon Wrestlemania 33 Contract Signing: Daniel Bryan is in the ring and first introduces Shane McMahon, then AJ Styles. Shane talks about the vision he's had running Smackdown Live, Styles being apart of that vision, complimenting Styles' ring work, talks about Styles winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and then his ego caused him to lose it. Shane says that Styles is making his own opportunity at Shane's expense and Styles better give his all at Wrestlemania 33 or it'll mean he's not phenomenal. Shane and Styles both sign the contract and Styles speaks. Styles asks Shane if he's ever been in a simple one on one non stipulated match before and since he hasn't Shane needs to know that he's entering Styles' world. Styles says he'll embarrass Shane on every level, cause he's never battled someone like AJ Styles. Styles says he's the best and Shane will learn how phenomenal he is. Bryan steps in between both men as they look to start a brawl. Shane offers a handshake, but Styles refuses and walks out.

- Becky Lynch vs. Carmella: WWE Smackdown Live Women's Champion Alexa Bliss and Mickie James are on commentary for this match. The match closes out with Alexa and Mickie getting into a brawl at ringside, which takes them into the ring for the interruption. Becky and Carmella brawl with them, getting the match thrown out. Becky suplexes Carmella as Mickie Mick Kicks Alexa and points to the Wrestlemania 33 banner.
Winner: No Contest.

- Mickie James and Becky Lynch vs. Carmella and Alexa Bliss: After the interference this was made into a tag team match. Nattie Neidhart interrupts the match, but she sits in on commentary. The match closes out with James Ellsworth getting involved and tripping up Becky by the feet. Carmella takes advantage and scores the pinfall on Becky. After the match, Nattie hits the ring and a five lady brawl breaks out. Naomi's music suddenly hits and she hits the ring. Naomi hurricanranas Nattie and then unloads on Carmella and Alexa. Naomi announces that she's 100% cleared for the WWE Smackdown Live Women's Championship Match at Wrestlemania 33 and everyone will feel the glow.
Winners: Carmella and Alexa Bliss, by pinfall.

- Backstage, Breezy Bella interrupts Daniel Bryan and says he's available for Wrestlemania 33. Fandango interrupts and says he's available too. Bryan announces a ten man tag team match tonight with the winners getting entered into the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Wrestlemania 33. 

- Miz TV With Miz And Maryse: Miz and Maryse mock John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Brie Bella and Nikki Bella and then show one last episode of Total Bellas Bull****. "Nikki" proposes to "Cena" in the episode, but "Cena" says no because getting married would hurt the Cena Brand. Miz then says that Wrestlemania 33 will be the curtain call for Cena and Nikki and they'll have nothing left after WWE. Maryse says after Sunday, the whole world will see that Cena's world is bull****. John Cena and Nikki Bella interrupt and head to the ring. Cena tells Miz that this segment was actually funny, nailing everything exactly the way Cena lives his life. Cena says they don't have a problem with their show, but they do have a problem with Miz and Maryse. Cena says Maryse likes to mock Nikki, but Maryse accomplished absolutely nothing when she was in WWE.
Cena says that right now all Maryse has done is steal paychecks from WWE, she never competes and begged to be on Total Divas, which Miz takes advantage of. Cena says he and Nikki will destroy Miz and Maryse at Wrestlemania 33 and calls Miz a p****. Cena calls Miz and Maryse the Shhh It Couple and promises Maryse that Nikki will knock the botox out of her face. Miz and Maryse fake an attack, but decide to walk away. Nikki calls them fake see through jealous haters that'll get their asses kicked at Wrestlemania 33.

Jordan gets tossed outside as does Jimmy Uso. Jey Uso connects with an Uso Kick on Gable. Ziggler sends Slater flying off the apron. Rhyno hits the Gore on Ziggler, as Mojo scores the pinfall on Breeze.
Winners: Mojo Rawley, American Alpha, Heath Slater and Rhyno, by pinfall.

- Backstage, Luke Harper says he's seen the truth and the truth is he doesn't need Bray Wyatt.

- Bray Wyatt vs. Luke Harper: The match closes out with Harper landing a senton and then connects a big boot on Bray for a near fall. Harper lands a superkick and a clothesline for another near fall. Bray stares Harper in the eyes which makes Harper hesitate for a moment before going for the discus lariat. Bray counters, hits Sister Abigail and scores the pinfall. After the match, Randy Orton appears on the TitanTron at the grounds of Bray's burnt down Compound. Orton places a crucifix in the ground where Sister Abigail was buried. Orton says he's coming for Bray and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania 33. Orton walks off as the crucifix engulfs in flames.
