Ricochet once again got SmackDown off to a hot start, facing off against “The Honorary Uce” Sami Zayn. Ricochet had his work cut out for him as he had nearly all of The Bloodline, including a returned Paul Heyman, at ringside in the corner of Zayn.

Logan Paul, however, was in the corner of Ricochet offering him some backup.

Ricochet attempted a Standing Moonsault but Zayn got his knees up in time, nearly grabbing a two-count victory in the process. Zayn followed up on this with a Blue Thunder Bomb but Logan Paul distracted the referee, disabling The Master Strategist from earning the win.

In the final stages of the match, Jey Uso attempted to help out The Master Strategist but his plan backfired, prompting Zayn to confront Jey. Ricochet capitalized on the commotion, earning the victory with a Shooting Star Press.
