WWE SmackDown comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Feb. 19, 2015) from Fort Lauderdale, Florida with a taped show on the SyFy channel featuring the go home show to the upcoming Fast Lane pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for this coming Sunday night in Memphis, Tennessee.
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!

WWE Signature followed by a recap of the ever-growing tension between Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns.
SmackDown intro and some pyro, and we're off.
Daniel Bryan vs The Miz
Before the match, a short video is shown with Miz telling Damien Mizdow about his past with Daniel Bryan, including being his mentor on the first season of NXT. Also, right after the bell rings, Miz kicks Mizdow out.
This was a short match that definitely went in Bryan's favor. Miz got in a total of three or four offensive moves before being caught in the Yes Lock.

Ryback vs Kane
This match happened, and it wasn't good. Ryback shell-shocked Kane.

R-Truth vs Bad News Barrett
Dean Ambrose is on commentary for this one. Oh, and BNB got a full jobber entrance.
For the most part, the match went in Barrett's favor. However, he kept getting distracted by Ambrose. In fact, he got distracted one too many times as Truth was able to roll-up Barrett for the surprise win.

Recap of the Dust implosion from Raw.
Renee Young interviews Goldust. She asks him about he feels about facing his brother at Fastlane. He says that the brothers rekindled their brotherhood until Cody ruined it all. Goldust also calls Stardust a cancer that is eating Cody alive. Goldust wants his brother back, and this match will be the most difficult match of his career.
Right after this, Stardust appears on the monitor and taunts Goldust. Stardust proclaims that Cody will cease to exist after Fastlane, and so will Goldust.
Jimmy Uso vs Tyson Kidd
Match went about ten seconds until a pissed-off Rusev comes in and beats the hell out of everyone.

After destroying everyone, Rusev screams in Bulgarian before leaving.
Dolph Ziggler vs Seth Rollins
As usual, we get a very good, competitive match between these two. In the end, Ziggler gets distracted by Kane and Big Show. This allows Rollins to deliver the Buckle Bomb followed by the curb stomp.

After the match, Rollins, Kane, Big Show, and J&J Security attacked the babyfaces. The faces held their own until being ultimately destroyed by the heels.
The heels stood tall to end the show.
