There’s more for the English crowd. WWE is currently on their annual post-WrestleMania European tour, meaning a large group of fans who don’t usually get to see the product live is getting a chance. That’s cool for both the fans and the wrestlers, as it offers them a unique experience. Since the shows are a big deal, it means WWE should go out on a special note, which is what they did.

According to, the post-show dark match after tonight’s SmackDown Live and 205 Live tapings saw Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods team up to defeat Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. This was a continuation of the angle that ended the SmackDown Live broadcast, as well as a rematch from last week’s post show dark match which saw Kingston and Woods victorious.

Here’s how they got ready. Check out the angle that closed out SmackDown Live:

Opinion: It makes sense to close with the champ, along with the #1 contender. That’s a good way to send the fans home happy as New Day is still one of the most popular acts on the roster. Hopefully the match was a little longer than last week’s, which saw Owens bail on Zayn, who was defeated in just over a minute. The match is interesting on paper, but they need some time to make it work as well as it could.
