Welcome to Smackdown Live and tonight we will see all the fallout from Sunday's Wrestlemania 34 and we kick things off with Shane McMahon making his way out to the ring
He thanks everyone for the reaction and he welcomes everyone to Smackdown, the final exclamation point on this Wrestlemania weekend. Shane thanks everyone for being part of Wrestlemania and making it a huge success. Shane says he has been fortunate to have a number of Wrestlemania moments but this year we got to witness the return of Daniel Bryan. Not only did he have the privilege to tag with Daniel Bryan, but because of his dream and resolve, they not only competed but they won. Shane says Daniel was born to do this. He has crossed over to be a full time in ring performer.
Daniel has resigned as General Manager of Smackdown and Shane says he has accepted it. When one door closes, another opens. Shane brings out the new General Manager . . . Paige.
Paige says that she is back. Last night on Raw, she delivered her retirement speech and she walked through the curtain for what she thought was the last time and Shane was standing there. Paige thanks Shane because it does mean the world to her. She knows the superstar shake up is next week but that is next week. Paige says she wants to make this night truly special for everyone.
Paige says that Daniel Bryan has not wrestled on television in more than three years so do you want to see him in action tonight. Daniel Bryan will face . . . AJ Styles.
