Last night's SmackDown saw a title change take place on the road to WrestleMania.
Ricochet defeated Sami Zayn last night to win the Intercontinental title. After a distraction by Johnny Knoxville, Ricochet hit a hurricanrana and pinned Zayn to become the new Intercontinental Champion.
Zayn then issued a challenge for the "Jackass" star to face him at WrestleMania 38. Knoxville responded later in the show and accepted the challenge.
Pat McAfee vs. Austin Theory was also made official for WrestleMania 38. Following McAfee's interview with Vince McMahon on the Pat McAfee Show, Theory confronted McAfee on SmackDown.
Ronda Rousey made her SmackDown in-ring debut last night, defeating Sonya Deville in the main event of the episode. Rousey then put Charlotte Flair in an ankle lock after the match and made her visually tap out ahead of their SmackDown Women's Championship match at WrestleMania.
