WrestleMania 40 Go-Home Show: SmackDown Delivers High Stakes Action (Winners & Losers). The WWE Universe electrifies the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as SmackDown gears up for the biggest event of the year – WrestleMania 40. With tensions at an all-time high and storylines reaching their boiling points, the go-home show promises a night filled with drama, unexpected twists, and a glimpse into what awaits at the Grandest Stage of Them All.

The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal: Big Bronson Books His WrestleMania Ticket

The annual tradition kicks off the night with the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. 20 Superstars vie for a coveted spot on the WrestleMania card, and the action is fast-paced from the get-go. Omos, the colossal Nigerian Giant, initially dominates, tossing out Kit Wilson with ease. The sight of Omos is enough to send shivers down spines, prompting Elton Prince of Pretty Deadly to eliminate himself rather than face the wrath of the giant.

As the chaos unfolds, established veterans like Ricochet and high-flyers like Akira Tozawa showcase their agility. However, the night belongs to “Big” Bronson Reed. The Australian powerhouse eliminates potential threats like Ivar the Viking Raider and Otis, showcasing his impressive strength and resilience. In the final four, Reed stands tall against Tozawa, Ivar, and Omos. In a thrilling display of athleticism, Reed overpowers Ivar, securing the victory and etching his name in Andre the Giant Battle Royal history. This win guarantees Reed a place on the WrestleMania card, leaving the fans eager to see who he’ll face in the coming weeks.

Winner: Bronson Reed Losers: 19 Superstars (including notable names like Ricochet, JD McDonagh, and The Creed Brothers)

Legado del Fantasma Reigns Supreme: Elektra Lopez Conquers Zelina Vega

The tension between Legado del Fantasma and The LWO continues to simmer. In a highly anticipated singles match, Zelina Vega, accompanied by Rey Mysterio, goes head-to-head with Elektra Lopez, backed by Santos Escobar. The match is a display of both technical prowess and high-flying maneuvers. Vega executes a picture-perfect 619, followed by a devastating Spike DDT. However, the referee gets momentarily distracted by Dominik Mysterio, allowing Lopez to capitalize. With a well-timed Electric Shock, Lopez secures the pinfall victory, leaving Vega and Mysterio fuming in the ring.

The post-match altercation takes a surprising turn when Dominik and Escobar attempt to attack Rey Mysterio. Andrade, originally hesitant to join the beatdown, delivers a thunderous clothesline to Dominik, ultimately siding with his former friend Mysterio. This unexpected turn of events leaves the audience wondering if a potential reunion between Mysterio and Andrade is on the horizon, perhaps leading to a tag team match at WrestleMania.
