WWE SmackDown results, grades, review: McMahon drops Styles, new tag champs

With WrestleMania 33 just two weeks away, SmackDown was one of WWE’s few remaining opportunities to build towards the show and promote half the matches on the card. All things considered, Tuesday night’s effort was relatively lackluster with two matches “officially” added to WrestleMania 33, though neither received an assumed -- and much needed -- stipulation, and the tag team championships changing hands in a fantastic match that will be overshadowed due to lack of relevance based on inconsistent attention on the division over the last few months. Confrontation -- AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan: No longer fired, Styles was decked out in WrestleMania 33 gear backstage as Bryan claimed he had “no idea what [he’s] in for at WrestleMania.” Styles then hit the ring and said he had nothing to prove against SmackDown commissioner Shane McMahon but would accept the match so he can fight at WrestleMania.
