Daniel Bryan is in the ring. Bryan hyped up tonight’s main event. Bryan says if Jey wins, we know what we will get. He will do everything in his power to make sure that Roman wins at FastLae. And if Roman was the Champion he thought he was, he wouldn’t need that help. But Edge is the ultimate opportunist. He will do anything he can to get what he wants and what he wants is to face Roman Reigns one on one at WrestleMania.

Bryan says he gets it, he understands why and that is because Edge doesn’t want to face him. And Edge thinks that he can beat Roman Reigns but the difference is Edge thinks he can beat Roman while Bryan knows he can beat Roman. He says he will prove it at FastLane. He says he will make Roman tap out.

Out comes Roman Reigns to the ring along with Paul Heyman. Roman laughs and says Bryan will tap him out. Roman calls Bryan DB and says he can deal with Bryan telling these lies about how he is ambitious but if he is going to lie on the Tribal Chief, that he can’t. He says Bryan can’t tap him out. He says Bryan has a better chance of shooting lightning out of his ass than tapping him out. Roman tells him no one in his entire career has ever tapped him out. He would rather lose his arm than to tap out to any man. And he will rather die in that ring than to tap out to somebody like him.

Bryan says that is pretty strong but make no mistake, he is talking about lies he has told. All those things that Roman says about himself, those are all lies. They are all delusions. And the thing is that everyone thinks they are invincible until they are not. And everyone thinks they are untapoutable until they tap out. Bryan says he won’t just make Roman quit, he is going to break him. He is going to break him of his beliefs, of everything he thinks he is.

Daniel says he hopes Roman doesn’t die but if he taps out or doesn’t tap out, he will beat Roman for the Universal Championship at FastLane.

SmackDown preview, March 12, 2021: Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns sign the contract for their WWE Fastlane clash

Last week Bryan earned the right to challenge for the Universal Championship at Fastlane where he aims to finally humble The Head of the Table and carry the prestigious title to a main event battle with Edge at WrestleMania. This week on Friday Night SmackDown, Reigns and Bryan will participate in a contract signing to make that anticipated WWE Fastlane match official.

Bryan last battled The Big Dog for the Universal Championship at WWE Elimination Chamber, squaring off against the self-aggrandizing titleholder after outlasting five other Superstars inside the imposing Elimination Chamber. Reigns saw an opportunity to prey upon the fatigued “Yes!” Man following that grueling contest, granting Bryan his title match the very same night. The Big Dog made the submission expert tap out to his feared Guillotine, but not even the machinations of Reigns or his Special Counsel Paul Heyman could keep Bryan from earning another opportunity at WWE Fastlane on Sunday, March 21, at 7 ET/ 4 PT, steaming live in partnership with Peacock and WWE Network.

Can Bryan and Reigns keep the peace as they put pen to paper for their Universal Title rematch?

Smackdown Results-March 5th,2021

– Graves sends us to the ring, where Michael Cole is waiting with a mic. He says as we just saw, WrestleMania 37 could be headlined by Edge vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Title, or not, if his guest has anything to say about it. Cole introduces Daniel Bryan and out he comes to a pop and a “yes!” chant from the virtual crowd.

Graves hypes Bryan vs. Jey Uso in a Steel Cage for tonight’s main event, with Bryan earning a shot against Reigns at WWE Fastlane if he wins. Bryan will have to acknowledge Reigns as the best wrestler on the planet and The Head of The Table if he loses. Cole asks Bryan about tonight’s main event and the stipulations. Cole mentions how a win for Bryan would throw a wrench in the originally planned Fastlane main event, which was Edge and Bryan vs. Uso and Reigns. Cole asks why Bryan has turned his focus to Reigns and the title, and why he passed on the tag team main event.

Bryan says Cole is making assumptions, the biggest being that anyone ever asked him if he wanted to be in the tag team match. Bryan says no one felt the need to run anything by him because they know he will show up and work his butt off no matter what. Bryan understands why Edge or Reigns didn’t bother asking him. Bryan says he’s making a change. He’s not going to be the old Daniel Bryan anymore. He knows they have this Edge vs. Reigns dream match for WrestleMania and he gets it. Everyone wants to see the Attitude Era vs. ThunderDome dream match, except for him, and he will do anything he can to make sure it doesn’t happen. Bryan excuses Cole and says he will take it from here. Bryan shows us a video package on the big screen.

The video shows how Bryan won the recent Eliminator Chamber match and came close to defeating Reigns in the title match that same night. We also see how Edge hit Reigns with a surprise Spear to end the pay-per-view, confirming that he was picking Reigns as his WrestleMania opponent. We come back to Bryan in the ring by himself now. Bryan says he’s lost a lot in his career, he’s gotten beat up a lot, so you’d think after winning his third Chamber match and fighting as valiantly as he could against Reigns, that it wouldn’t be a big deal but never in his life has he felt like such a failure like he did when he saw Edge point up at the WrestleMania sign that night.

Bryan says a lot of people don’t know this but they say Bryan doesn’t have a lot of ambition. He recalls how WWE did these personality tests a while back and the lady said he has the lowest ambition she had seen, and she wondered how he was so successful. The only answer he had was that he loves doing this and he doesn’t feel like he’s worked a day in the past 20+ years because he loves it so much. Bryan says for the last year he’s taken on being a dad more than a full-time wrestler, so he’s put other talents before himself. So when Edge pointed at the WrestleMania sign and Bryan felt like an absolute failure, it was because he failed himself. Bryan then realized he has a lot more ambition than that personality test could ever show. He knew then that he should be in the WrestleMania main event, not Edge or Roman, but him. He got upset at them being in the main event because he loves this.

Bryan says in the last three weeks he’s wrestled more matches than Edge and Bryan have combined in the last three months. He does this because he loves what he does. Bryan goes on and says he can be the absolute best. He keeps hyping up tonight’s match and earning the Universal Title shot until the music interrupts and out comes Reigns, Uso and Paul Heyman. Reigns stops on the ramp and raises the title in the air as the pyro goes off and the boos continue. We go to commercial as Reigns stares Bryan down from the ramp.

Back from the break and Team Reigns is in the ring facing off with Bryan. More pyro goes off around the ring as Reigns’ music plays. The boos get louder before Reigns takes the mic. Reigns is looking at the same guy but he doesn’t sound like the same guy. Reigns says the way Bryan is talking is confusing, so he knows the fans are confused. Reigns says Bryan is ambitious and driven now. No, Bryan is the underdog, their little guy, the lottery winner. Bryan is the guy who waits on an opportunity and sometimes it works out. Reigns says Bryan is not ambitious, guys like Reigns, and there aren’t many, are ambitious. Reigns says Bryan also doesn’t love wrestling, he needs it because he has nothing else. Reigns goes on and says he does love this business. He doesn’t need it, he does it because everybody needs him, SmackDown needs him, the roster and the crew all need him. The camera man, Heyman, Uso and Bryan all need Reigns.

Fans chant “you suck!” now. Reigns says once Jey whoops Bryan’s ass tonight, he will know he needs Reigns, in his heart, and he will acknowledge Reigns. Uso takes the mic and steps to Bryan, ranting and talking trash about tonight’s cage match. Uso says Bryan’s Road to WrestleMania ends tonight. He shoves the mic in Bryan’s gut. Uso walks away but turns to attack. Bryan counters and sends him out of the ring. Bryan stares Reigns down in the middle of the ring as his music starts back up. Fans chant “yes!” as Bryan watches Reigns makes his exit with Heyman. Uso clutches his arm and backs up the ramp while staring Bryan down.

– We see Jey Uso backstage with Roman Reigns. Reigns says the title is safe until WrestleMania if Jey can win tonight, but if not, Reigns has to defend it at Fastlane and that’s fine, but if Jey loses he not only embarrasses himself, he embarrasses the family. Reigns tells him not to embarrass their family. Uso says he’s got this. He walks off. Graves hypes the Steel Cage match as we go back to commercial.

Steel Cage Match: Daniel Bryan vs. Jey Uso

We go back to the ring and the Steel Cage is around the ring as the familiar music plays in the background. Graves is in the ring talking about how dangerous the cage is. We see a camera man sitting on top of the cage. Graves says this is one of our best camera men who is in position to show us how dangerous the climb is. Graves says our competitors will both leave a little piece of themselves in the cage tonight.

Out first comes Daniel Bryan to a pop. If Bryan wins this match, he gets to challenge WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at Fastlane. If he loses, he must acknowledge Reigns as The Head of The Table and the best wrestler on the planet. Bryan leads a “yes!” chant as he enters the cage. Out next comes Jey Uso, who is upset over the backstage attack by Bryan. Uso enters the cage but before they can begin, the music interrupts and out comes the WWE Universal Champion with Paul Heyman. Fans boo as Reigns stands on the ramp to pyro going off. Heyman pulls a chair over to the bottom of the ramp and Reigns takes a seat as fans chant “you suck!” at him.
