WWE Friday Night Smackdown tapings took place last night in Buffalo, New York. The show will air on Friday night on the SyFy channel starting at 8 p.m. ET. Here is what happened at the tapings.
The show started with a vignette about The Shield, and how Dean Ambrose lost the U.S. Title. They also recapped the six-man tag against The Wyatt Family and how Evolution got involved.
-Sheamus defeated Dean Ambrose to retain the U.S. Championship. Sheamas retains after hitting the Brogue kick for the win.
John Cena and The Uso Brothers vs. The Wyatt Family was announced for later in the show.
-Cesaro and Bad News Barrett defeated Rob Van Dam and Big E. Paul Heyman sat in on commentary. Cesaro pinned Big E. Cesaro did not perform the Cesaro Swing and there were no major high spots. A blah match.
-Rusev (w/Lana) beat Kofi Kingston. Kingston’s pyro didn’t go off. Funny. Lana cut a promo before the match. Rusev made Kofi humble by making him submit to the Accolade/Camel Clutch.
A Wyatt Family promo aired.
-Fandango and Layla beat Santino Marella and Emma. Layla pinned Emma after a distraction by Fandango in less than two minutes. I was hoping for a lot more.
-Roman Reigns beat Mark Henry. Reigns speared Henry after delivering a Samoan Drop for the pin. Impressive. A good babyface win for Reigns.
-Los Matadores and El Torito beat Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre, and Hornswoggle (w/Jinder Mahal). El Torito pinned Slater. Good comedy.
-Batista beat Seth Rollins by count out. There was a nice ‘You Can’t Wrestle’ chant arena wide for Batista. The first CM Punk chant of the night occurred when Batista was on the offensive. I guess people just don’t like him. Batista won by count out after Seth missed a dive from the top tope to the outside and landed on the announcers’ table and “knocking himself out” in the process. Batista attacked Seth after the bell and delivered a Batista Bomb.
Raw returns to Buffalo on November 3. Use WWERAW as the pre-sale password.
-The Wyatt Family defeated John Cena and The Uso Brothers. Luke Harper pinned one of the Uso brothers. Cena wasn’t in the ring much. The Uso Brothers were over, but Cena had the pop of the night.
Post show, Cena took the mic challenged The Wyatt’s to continue the three-on-three match. The Wyatt’s attacked the ring with Cena and Usos hitting their moves to send the crowd home happy.
