WWE SmackDown video highlights: SmackDown Throwback Edition

Last night's SmackDown was a special Throwback edition of the show.

The episode, which helped promote NASCAR's Throwback Weekend on Fox Sports, featured retro WWE branding and a look back at some classic moments in SmackDown's history. Teddy Long also made an appearance, which included him adding a stipulation to Cesaro vs. Seth Rollins. If Cesaro defeated Rollins, he would get a Universal title shot against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania Backlash.

Cesaro pinned Rollins to earn the WrestleMania Backlash title shot. The finish involved Rollins arguing with The Usos. Rollins said he didn't need their help and told them to stay out of his business. Jimmy Uso, who returned earlier in the show, then gave Rollins a superkick. Cesaro hit a plancha on Jimmy, threw Rollins back in the ring, and hit the Neutralizer to get the win.

Reigns wasn't happy with Jimmy after Cesaro defeated Rollins. Jimmy told Reigns that Reigns wasn't going to talk to him the way that he talks to his brother Jey. Jimmy said he's nobody's bitch.

Reigns wanted to know where Jimmy stood by the end of the show. He told Jimmy to fall in line and acknowledge him or go back home. Jimmy then left the ring and Jey went to go talk to him. With Reigns by himself in the ring, Cesaro attacked him. Jey tried to make the save but was also beaten down by Cesaro.

Jimmy decided to try and help his brother, but Cesaro gave Jimmy a pop-up uppercut. The show then ended with Cesaro laying out Reigns and Jey with Neutralizers.
