WWE SmackDown returns to SyFy this coming Friday night (June 20, 2014) from Columbus, 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:
- The show opens with everyone involved in the Money in the Bank ladder match for the WWE world heavyweight title getting on TV. They changed the main event of this show to a 4-on-3 handicap with the heels taking on the outnumbered babyfaces, so they established it here. Roman Reigns cut a promo on not being able to trust anyone and was in John Cena's face, so that should make many fans happy. They have a brawl that appears to end with Cena choosing not to attack Sheamus from behind.
- Seth Rollins has new ring gear and it's atrocious. Like tight leather spandex. He defeats Kofi Kingston with the Curb Stomp and cuts a post-match promo that is interrupted by Dean Ambrose on the Titantron.
- Dolph Ziggler def. Bad News Barrett clean but the Intercontinental champion gets revenge with the Bullhammer post-match. This is interesting booking, and may point to their inclusion in the Money in the Bank ladder match for the briefcase.
- Adam Rose def. Titus O'Neil almost immediately. So O'Neil asks for a rematch, gets it, and again loses almost immediately. This is a bit they've been doing on house shows.
- Kane def. Dean Ambrose. Seth Rollins was out on commentary and got involved in the match. After, he laid Ambrose out with the Curb Stomp.
- Big E def. Jack Swagger with the Big Ending in a mostly nothing match.
- Summer Rae kissed on Fandango backstage and Layla caught them and lost her mind about it.
- Bo Dallas def. Fandango in what sounds like an awesome bit of booking. Layla attacks Summer, who was out with Fandango, and Fandango tries to stop it. Only he ends up getting kicked by Layla when Summer ducks out of the way. The women then brawl while Dallas gets the Running Bo-Dog for the pin. After the match, he tells Fandango there are plenty of fish in the sea and all he has to do is Bolieve.
- Bray Wyatt promo via Titantron saying the same thing he said on Monday Night Raw and Main Event. The Wyatt Family is taking all the gold at the upcoming PPV.
- It was announced that each of the participants in the Money in the Bank ladder match for the briefcase would be revealed on next Monday night's episode of Raw. Something to look forward to.
- The main event sees the babyface team of Roman Reigns, John Cena, and Sheamus def. Cesaro, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, and Alberto Del Rio. Reigns got the pinfall on Del Rio after the spear and a whole lot of chaos in and out of the ring.
That's the show, folks. Your thoughts?
