WWE SmackDown spoilers, results, live updates (Sept. 26, 2014): Night of Champions fallout

WWE Friday Night SmackDown comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Sept. 26, 2014) from Little Rock, Arkansas with a taped show on the SyFy channel featuring the fallout show from the Night of Champions pay-per-view (PPV) that went down this past Sunday night in Nashville.

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!



- Dean Ambrose vs. The Miz: They set it up with footage of what happened on Main Event. Ambrose was over big with the crowd. Damien Mizdow continually attempted to interfere. Miz came close to winning a few times thanks to it, but Ambrose eventually pulled it out with Dirty Deeds. Right as Dean was winning, Seth Rollins and Kane came down. They brawled for a minute before Ambrose grabbed the briefcase and ran off with it.

- They did a segment with Stardust & Goldust. They talked about The Usos wanting to take the cosmic key from them but vowed they would ensure that didn't happen.

- Battle royal for Intercontinental title shot: Only Cesaro and Jack Swagger were given entrances. They had a weird number of guys in, like 11 or 12. They worked to a final five with Kofi Kingston, Bo Dallas, Cesaro, Swagger, and Damien Mizdow. They all ganged up on Mizdow and he was eliminated quickly after they collectively set their sights on him. There was a terrible botch that didn't get edited out and Swagger almost killed Kofi. Not long after, Cesaro eliminated them both to win.

- Renee Young interviewed The Usos backstage. They did their usual schtick, saying they've got everything ready and they'll win the belts back.

- Star & Goldust vs. The Usos for tag team titles: The challengers got the edge early but the champions regained the advantage. At one point, Stardust was laying into Jey Uso on the outside and he was screaming, "WHERE'S THE KEY, COLE?!?" Michael Cole wondered aloud what he was talking about, considering the idea was the tag team titles represented the cosmic key. Maybe not. They set up for Jimmy Uso to get a hot tag and he ran wild, nearly killing Stardust with a suplex that had him landing on his head and neck. The Usos did a Doomsday Device that was about to get a pin but Goldust made the save with a belt shot to force a disqualification.

- Seth Rollins was yelling at Kane pissed off about Ambrose having run off with his Money in the Bank briefcase. Kane told him it didn't matter because the contract and, in turn, title match, was still his. Rollins said he knew that but when Ambrose stole the briefcase he "crossed the line". He said Ambrose could either give it back in the same condition it was in when he took it or there would be a big surprise that would make the cinder blocks look like child's play.

- Summer Rae & Layla vs. Natalya & Rosa Mendes: This week they've working Total Divas storylines into the show. Summer and Natalya drew ratings for another physical confrontation on the show, so they had them work a tag match here while the commentary team put over the show and the angles played out on it. No wonder Vince McMahon can't stand this nonsense. It's nonsensical. They made a big deal about Rosa getting into the match and she made two clotheslines and a dropkick look absolutely awful. She sold death on a kick to the head and then the match broke down into chaos. Layla ultimately rolled Rosa up for the pin and victory.

- Renee Young interviewed Big Show, who said "the world's largest heart beats inside the world's strongest man". He put over the friendship he has with Mark Henry -- "my brother from another mother" -- and brought up Rusev and Lana wanting to degrade Henry and having the freedom to do that in America. But freedom isn't free. Good lord. Show said he would knock Rusev out because that's what he does.

- Cesaro vs. Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental title: A decent match but a weird finish. Cesaro was working a powerbomb before Ziggler reversed into a sunset flip pinfall. Cesaro grabbed the bottom rope before the three count but the referee was out of position, so Ziggler retained the title. The announcers made sure to make a big deal about this, noting that Ziggler stole one. Everyone did good here.

- Renee Young interviewed Rusev and Lana backstage. Lana spoke in Russian before getting annoyed that Renee didn't understand. So she translated while Renee rolled her eyes. Rusev spoke but in a different language. "We go", Lana said, and they left.

- Rusev vs. Big Show: This was the main event. Big Show got his stuff in but this was about getting heat on Rusev. He got most of the offense in but Show was set up to win late after a choke slam. Then Lana grabbed at his ankle and climbed in the ring to distract him. Rusev took advantage with the Russian flag and hit Show for the disqualification. He tried to hit Show with another big superkick but Show caught it and used the advantage to hit the KO punch. The announcers flipped out over this, as did the crowd, and it felt like a genuinely big deal. This was great.
