Styles said Knight was surely here tonight, and he called him out. A man in a hoodie jumped the rail, and the security stopped him.

Styles ripped the hoodie, but it was not Knight. Instead, Knight was there in a wig, sunglasses, and a hat.

Knight attacked Styles. He grabbed a chair, and AJ had to run away. 

Grades: B+

Analysis: It was an excellent segment. WWE is showing things on a personal level in this feud. Maybe a stipulation can be added to it.

Singles Match

Bianca Belair vs. Dakota Kai

It was the main event for the night. Early on, Dakota landed a big boot. Bianca delivered two suplexes. Later, she landed a vertical suplex and slammed Kai to the mat from the middle rope. 

Belair got the moonsault successfully on the second attempt for a two-count. After some back-and-forth action, Belair pulled Dakota up from the second rope and delivered a suplex. Belair delivered a Spear, followed by a KOD for the win.

Jade Cargill made the save this time. She came in and delivered a powerbomb on Dakota. She slammed Sane face-first into the mat. The show went off-air with Cargill, Belair, and Naomi standing tall in the ring.  

Winner: Bianca Belair

Grades: The match was not what we expect from a main event. However, The post-match angle was awesome. They portrayed Cargill in a big way in her debut. Having her alongside Belairand Naomi will surely help in learning.

Overall, it was a dull episode of SmackDown, according to the build to WrestleMania. There was no such standout thing on the show. Especially, The Bloodline was barely featured on the show. The main highlight was Jade Cargill’s debut.
