SmackDown Live Results: Shane McMahon Returns to Address His Match at WrestleMania 34

The last televised WWE show before WrestleMania 34, the April 3 edition of SmackDown Live will bring feuds on the blue brand to a fevered pitch before they are resolved in New Orleans on April 8.

The biggest storyline on SmackDown Live is the Daniel Bryan, Shane McMahon, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn saga that saw Bryan take a beating after he fired KO and Zayn. Bryan challenged the two to a tag match (with Shane McMahon as his partner) and put Owens and Zayn's jobs on the line. This week, Shane returns from his injuries to address his availability for the WrestleMania match.

Returning from a minor injury, Charlotte takes on Natalya in a rematch from their bout two weeks ago. Will Charlotte go into her match with Asuka at WrestleMania with a victory and momentum?

The dream match of AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura will see the two top wrestlers on the brand team up against Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable after their attack on Shinsuke. Will Nakamura continue to get into Styles' head before their match?

Expect a lot to happen on this week's episode SmackDown Live so let's get down to the live results.

Note: The results are still being compiled. We'll update as matches conclude.
