WWE SmackDown comes waltzing back into our lives one last time on Friday tonight (Jan. 9, 2015) from Laredo, Texas with a taped show on the SyFy channel featuring all the latest build to the upcoming Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for late next month in Philadelphia.
Because SmackDown is a taped show, you can simply go read the spoilers to know everything that happens (find them by clicking here). We will provide results below anyway.
You can use this space to discuss all the events as they occur, however, and it's probably going to enhance your viewing experience. In fact, I know it is because we're a lot of fun around here.
Enjoy the show!
- Seth Rollins (w/ J & J Security) promo is interrupted by Roman Reigns. Roman calls him some names and attacks, tossing Noble, Mercury and Rollins. Kane comes out and makes a tag match (playa) main event for Big Show & Seth vs. Reigns & a partner of his choosing.
- Miz sucks up to Kane, saying he's cool with Miz TV being cancelled and asks for a rematch with The Usos instead of the triple threat. The Corporate Demon agrees until Mizdow spills water on him and he leaves the Dusts in the title bout.
- Highlights of Cesaro & Tyson Kidd's Rosebud impersonation from Raw are shown to set-up Adam Rose w/ the Masters of the WWE Universe vs. Big E with The New Day. E wins clean in a couple of minutes.
- Another Ascension promo, again mentioning the Road Warriors and to change it up this time, Powers of Pain. They then squash These Guys.
