WWE Friday Night Smackdown tapings took place last night in Atlanta, Georgia. 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 Shield made there way through the crowd. Some girl jumped the rails and went to the ring and said she loves Seth…funny. I wish Roman had speared her in half. Is that mean? She was escorted to the back quickly and aggressively. They talked about kicking ass at Payback, nothing they haven’t said before.
-Cesaro defeated Kofi Kingston. Cesaro won just like that. I knew it would be a squash, but that’s WWE for you, predictable.
Bad News Barrett cut a promo.
WWE Divas Champion Paige defeated Tamina Snuka. I enjoy watching Paige. She’s a good champ. Alicia Fox came out and started, well, being herself, she took the belt and took selfies with it. Weird. Pagie hit here Paige Turner and locked in a submission for the win.
Sheamus cut a promo backstage.
-Bo Dallas defeated Xavier Woods. Woods still looks green. The crowd was dead. Bo had good offense and won with the Bo Dog. Nothing special.
-El Torito (w/Los Matadores) beat Jinder Mahal (w/Drew McIntyre, Heath Slater, Hornswoggle).
-U.S. Champion Sheamus defeated Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett in a non-title match. Both men worked hard and the crowd was very vocal early. However, headlocks killed the crowd. Good back and forth picked things up again. Sheamus hit the Brogue kick on Barrett for the win. A great match. Both men a lot of good offense and the match had a great finish.

The Usos cut a promo backstage.
-Big E defeated Titus O’Neil. Rusev came out to the ring as well. A big USA chant started thanks to us. E got off to a great start and he hit a splash to get the quick win.
Lilian Garcia let us know that Raws is coming to Atlanta on October 13.
-Adam Rose beat Jack Swagger. Rose needs to be more serious to get over with me. He kissed jack on the cheek at one point. Okay. Rose won quickly with a BS roll up. Nothing special.
-Bray Wyatt defeated Jimmy Uso in a Last Man Standing match. Bray is the man right now. He had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. A C.M. Punk chant started. Someone screamed “he’s a quitter.” Late in the match, Bray did his crab walk. USO hit the splash from the top rope got an eight count. Uso took out the Wyatt’s with super kicks. Bray threw Uso in to the steps, and he hit Sister Abigail for the win.
-The Shield defeated The Wyatt Family in a six-man tag. This is the match I was looking forward to seeing live. Late in the match, Bray went for Sister Abigail, but Roman got the hot tag. He hit two Superman punches and speared Harper for the in. Great match. Great show.
