WWE Smackdown Taping
Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose came out to a big pop. They cut a promo on Seth Rollins and Randy Orton. Triple H appeared on screen and flipped a coin. Ambrose won so he got to be in a qualifying match with Bray Wyatt tonight. Reigns and the Wyatt Family were barred from ringside…
1. Roman Reigns defeated Bad News Barrett via DQ after 3MB interfered. Reigns ended up impressively taking out 3MB. The crowd was big time into Reigns, which is cool to see after the crowd chanted for Undertaker during his entire match with Wyatt back in February.
2. Erick Rowan (w/Luke Harper) defeated Jey Uso.
3. Bo Dallas defeated R-Truth. Before the match, Dallas danced along to Truth rapping and interrupted him talking. I haven’t been huge into Dallas but this was hilarious.
4. Cesaro (w/Paul Heyman) defeated Sheamus in a non-title match. Before the match, Paul Heyman translated in the ring for Cesaro speaking other languages. A good match that the crowd eventually got into that went over 14 minutes.
Wyatt cut a promo on screen. It’s amazing he’s delivered so many good ones with how many they’ve asked from him.
5. Adam Rose defeated Fandango (w/Layla). Rose had his Rosebuds with him. After the match, Summer Rae, who was dressed as a Rosebud, attacked Layla.
6. Big E defeated Jack Swagger (w/Zeb Colter). Big E won despite Lana distracting him and talking on stage.
Another Fatherhood PSA aired, this time with Alberto Del Rio.
7. Alicia Fox defeated Aksana. A brief “go Pack go” chant started during the match. I hate this city. Speaking of which, backup quarterback Matt Flynn was in attendance and got into the action throughout the night. However, he wasn’t introduced to the crowd.
8. Bray Wyatt defeated Dean Ambrose in a Money in the Bank qualifier. Seth Rollins ran through the crowd and got Ambrose to chase him back into the ring where Wyatt hit the Sister Abigail. Good match.
After Smackdown, Rollins and Wyatt teased fighting each other only to attack Ambrose. Reigns, Harper (no Rowan, I don’t believe), the Uso’s, and Sheamus all had a big brawl that the crowd loved. Reigns and Ambrose attacked Rollins with a chair at the end. The Uso’s, Sheamus, and The Shield stood tall and shook hands with the fans to send the crowd home happy.
