WWE SmackDown returns to SyFy this coming Friday night (June 6, 2014) from Cincinnati, Ohio, but the show was taped, as usual, on Tuesday night. That means full spoilers are readily available if you're the impatient type who doesn't want to wait a couple days for the payoff.
Unwrap that present early:
- Triple H opened the show with his newest charge, Seth Rollins. They came out to the Evolution theme and Rollins was still wearing his tactical gear. He spoke but he didn't reveal anything, only saying he knows why he did what he did and no one else. Dolph Ziggler, of all people, interrupted to run him down so Triple H booked a match. Rollins, apparently, gave him a look of disapproval.
- Rollins def. Ziggler clean in what was a good match because of course it was because it was Seth Rollins and Dolph Ziggler.
- When Rollins and Triple H went backstage, Big Show called them out so he ended up booked in a match with Randy Orton in the main event.
- The Usos def. Rybaxel in a non-title match, so there goes all that momentum the latter team had been building.
- Rusev def. Xavier Woods in a typical Rusev Crush match. New wrinkle: A gigantic Russian flags hangs above the ring during his matches.
- Bad News Barrett def. Rob Van Dam and Cesaro in a triple threat non-title match. Good, and Paul Heyman is on commentary to make it potentially great.
- Bray Wyatt cut a promo from the Titantron, so he didn't actually return to SmackDown, and said Sister Abigail warned him of all this and knew it would happen this way.
- Natalya def. Alicia Fox in a singles match and Fox freaked out immediately after.
- Bo Dallas def. Santino Marella with Emma ringside. Your typical Bolieve segment.
- Big Show def. Randy Orton via disqualification when Seth Rollins interfered. They ended the show with Rollins and Orton beating down Show and standing tall.
That's the show, folks. Your thoughts?
