The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.

WWE SmackDown Results

It was the first empty-arena show for WWE in response to Coronavirus precautions, and it is likely not to be the last. The show was scheduled to have big returns like John Cena and Jeff Hardy, and definitely had a strange vibe to the entire proceedings. Here are the results of this week’s SmackDown live from the Performance Center:

  • Sasha Banks & Bayley def. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross
  • The show re-airs the Women’s Elimination Chamber match from Sunday, won by Shayna Baszler
  • Daniel Bryan def. Cesaro
  • Jeff Hardy def. King Corbin

SmackDown Takeaways

The main event of the empty arena SmackDown was an interview with John Cena. It was interrupted by Bray Wyatt in the most magnificent way. Wyatt explained how he now listens to the voices in his head, and talked about how Cena only cares about himself. The Fiend put Bray Wyatt back together, and that is bad news for Cena at Wrestlemania.

Triple H was so busy on Wednesday night. Commentary, camera work, hosting and more. So much for a man who apparently received a “quiet demotion” recently.

Mojo Rawley loudly gave us confirmation that Rob Gronkowski is coming to SmackDown!

After a long time away, it was great to see Jeff Hardy back in a WWE ring.

More Coronavirus Changes

WWE confirmed that Raw is also going to be moved to the Performance Center on Monday as well. It seems to be the norm going forward for WWE at this time.

Fox has suspended production of studio shows, which means there will be no WWE Backstage for the next little while.

Even Adam Page needs to make some adjustments to his cowboy lifestyle.

Eliminations In Order:

  • Danny Burch (NXT)
  • Tyler Breeze (NXT)
  • Tony Nese (205)
  • Mike Kanellis (205)
  • Brian Kendrick & Ariya Daivari (205)

One for the Road:

The women’s tag match stopped wrestling during the commercial break. My take: good! Why waste some bumps on the body when there are legitimately no fans to entertain between the breaks? It makes sense.
