WWE SmackDown spoilers, results, live updates (June 27, 2014): Money in the Bank go home show

WWE Friday Night SmackDown comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (June 27, 2014) from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with a taped show on the SyFy channel featuring all the latest build to the upcoming Money in the Bank pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for later this month in Boston.

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 with a live blog 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!



- After a long video package hyping the WWE title ladder match this weekend, they cut to Triple H, Randy Orton, and Seth Rollins already in the ring with "King of Kings" playing over the speakers. Triple H brought up the various eras in wrestling. "I've heard today called 'The Reality Era'". Yeah, YOU called it that, boss. Then he said we're about to enter "The Authority Era". He put over Orton, saying he'll win the WWE title. Then he put over Rollins, saying he'll win the contract. Orton took his turn, saying he'll win. Rollins did the same but he brought up their being a "Plan B" just in case things go wrong. Orton took exception to this and they teased dissent with Randy outright threatening to kick Seth's ass. Triple H played peacemaker. Then he booked Dean Ambrose vs. Bad News Barrett for next.

- Well, this is the match where Barrett gets injured, so we'll see how they handle this. Ambrose took control early but it wasn't long before Barrett used a big boot to snuff out Dean's momentum. Ambrose made a comeback and it wasn't long before he hit Dirty Deeds to get the pin. Then he got up and looked into the crowd saying "where's my boy?" Jack Swagger came out and tossed Barrett into the barricade once, then twice. The second one was when Barrett separated his shoulder. Looked brutal. Swagger got in the ring and started staring at the briefcase hanging above the ring when Ambrose showed up again and took him out. Rollins showed up from out of the crowd and laid Dean out, putting him in the ring and hitting the Curb Stomp.

- Paige vs. Cameron was next. Naomi was still out with Cameron as the Funkadactyls. She was sitting in on commentary. They set up the match with a brief history of Cameron building a rivalry with the Divas champion. When the match started, they were brutal from the get go while Naomi was talking about having to cope with Cameron's "unique personality". She did say she "likes Cameron very much" but that she "disagrees with her actions sometimes". Naomi going all Switzerland on it. That's all that was said, because Paige won the match with the Paige Turner clean in fairly short order. Naomi put her headset down and climbed in the ring for a staredown with Paige. Cameron attacked from behind and Naomi got between them. She tried to keep them separated but Cameron pushed Naomi into Paige, and she got all pissed off about it, pushing Naomi back. Now there's some edge to the match.

- Luke Harper showed up on the screen for a promo. He talked about being exiled and never having shiny nice things but "his hand guides us now and we are walking upright". He said they want what The Usos have. Tick tock. Bray Wyatt walked into the screen and said "my brothers will trample The Usos". Then he repeated that he will win the WWE world heavyweight championship.

- Sheamus vs. Bray Wyatt was next. They gave Bray is long entrance with the cheap pop to start by shouting out the city name. They must have altered the audio, however, because it hardly got a reaction. That's not typical. Then, when Live in Fear came on, there were audible boos. That's terribly inconsistent with the rest of his entrance. Sheamus had control until Harper and Rowan got involved to get Bray the edge. So WWE went to commercial right after this and when they came back, The Usos were out and Michael Cole was scrambling to explain why. That was poorly done. They went back-and-forth from there until Sheamus locked on the Cloverleaf, forcing Harper and Rowan to get involved. That caused a disqualification. The Usos came in to help and they ended up hitting the over the top rope dive. Rowan sold like he hurt his left leg. Bray and Sheamus traded finisher attempts but both missed, and that's how they ended the segment.

- Goldust was interviewed by Byron Saxton backstage. He brought up Stardust, who showed up with his own lighting. He talked about Ryback calling them "hermaphrodites" and SyFy actually bleeped it out. Then Goldust accepted the challenge sent out by Rybaxel on Raw.

- Dolph Ziggler & Rob Van Dam vs. Alberto Del Rio & Cesaro was next. Paul Heyman, as expected, was on commentary. He put over Brock Lesnar conquering the Undertaker's undefeated streak at WrestleMania. I missed most of the match but the finish was RVD trying a Frog Splash on Del Rio and the latter getting his knees up. From there, he locked on the Cross Armbreaker and got the tap. After the match, Cesaro hit him with a Neutralizer because every man for himself.

- The Usos were backstage for an interview with Renee Young. They started saying things and it was bad. U-SO! U-SO CRAZY! IT'S A BIRD! IT'S A PLANE! IT'S A FLYING U-SO CRAZY!

- Lana and Rusev were next. They got an introduction from Lillian Garcia while Sin Cara was in the background bouncing outside the ring. Lana showed a picture on the Titantron of an abandoned warehouse in Pittsburgh and said it's a great example of American failure. You know how the match went. Ruseve hit a superkick then got The Accolade for the submission win. Big E showed up and cut a promo. He was still talking like a stereotypical black preacher. He put over Americans facing their problems head on instead of attacking from the back. They squared off in the ring and Lana held Rusev back, demanding he leave the ring. So he did. Rusev tried a sneak attack but they booked it like the irresistible force met the immovable object.

- Main event was next, Kane vs. Roman Reigns. Naturally, they had a physical match with big moves doled out liberally. They went to the outside with Kane getting the table ready like he was going to put Roman through it, then Reigns reversed and put Kane into the steps before Kane countered and ... threw Reigns back in the ring. That made no sense. Reigns got his stuff in right after, following up kick on the apron with the Superman Punch. As he was setting up for the spear, Orton ran in. He beat Reigns down briefly before helping Kane up, at which point Roman hit him with the Superman Punch. Kane was recovered and able to hit a Chokeslam at that point, though. With Reigns laid out, Kane set up a ladder in the ring and looked to Orton, who slowly realized what was happening and climbed up the ladder. When he got near the top, Kane grabbed it, startling Orton, but he quickly realized Kane was just providing an anchor to keep it in place so he could grab the titles. Orton celebrated with the belts. Kane set up to hit another Chokeslam on Reigns but Orton called him off so he could set up to hit his patented punt. Reigns recovered, of course, and speared both guys before standing tall with the titles to close the show.
