WWE Smackdown Live Begins – Daniel Bryan
Daniel Bryan kicks off Smackdown Live from Seattle with a great reception from the crowd chanted ‘welcome home’. He announces 2 matches between Tamina, Lana & Natalya vs Charlotte, Becky Lynch & Noami and Dolph Ziggler vs. Bobby Roode.
He then goes on to talk about Sami Zayn and how he was disappointed at him at Hell in a Cell. Sami’s music hits and he comes out. Bryan asks, ‘is this really the Sami that I’ve known for 13 years?’. Sami says he has just reclaimed his career and hasn’t changed.
A few more words were exchanged about management and where Sami has got in the WWE which leads to Kevin Owens coming out calling him a ‘pathetic martyr’. Saying Bryan only cares about doing what’s best for business saying, ‘he’s now the Authority’ and is a sell-out.
Daniel Bryan just walks to the back saying he’s going to fight a ‘couple of dudes’ to punch them in the face.

Personally, I think these segments are hilarious with Breezango & The Ascension. Imitating Pulp Fiction. Trying to solve the case of 2B. Some funny segments with a burger and it will continue with Fashion Files 4.
