WWE SmackDown results, live blog (April 2, 2015): WrestleMania 31 fallout show

WWE SmackDown comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (April 2, 2015) from Fresno, California with a taped show on the SyFy channel featuring the fallout show from the WrestleMania 31 pay-per-view (PPV) that went down this past Sunday night in Santa Clara, California.

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!



BaconStrips here. Let's do this


WWE Signature and a recap of Raw, including the spectacular death of one Michael Cole.


Seth Rollins and Friends are out for a promo. Rollins declares himself the new face of WWE. He also tries to justify why he didn't compete on Raw: he was jet-lagged, and he didn't want to compete at less-than-peak condition.

He starts going on and on about Brock Lesnar being a monster when Randy Orton comes out. Orton says that he remembers everything about his feud with Rollins up to this point. He also remembers that he's owed a rematch for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from the last WrestleMania.

Rollins blasts Orton, saying that only he decides who gets a title shot, causing Orton to make a quip about Rollins never doing anything alone. He also makes fun of Big Show and Kane for various reasons (a Little Red Riding Hood reference is made toward Kane). Kane makes a match between Randy Orton and Big Show (heh). If Orton wins, he MAY get a title shot.


Randy Orton vs Big Show

Short match. Orton dominates, then the rest of The Authority interfere to cause a DQ.

Welp, due to Dolph Ziggler bring unable to compete, we have Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus tonight...happy now, Vince?


Naomi vs Natalya

This was a pretty solid back-and-forth match. Naomi won with a head-scissors DDT.

After the match, Nikki Bella and Naomi have a staredown.


Backstage, Kane and Seth Rollins have a discussion in the executive bathroom. To Rollins' chagrin, Kane books Randy Orton vs Seth Rollins for the WWE WHC at Extreme Rules. Rollins exits and Dean Ambrose comes in following a good dump. To reward him for his achievement, Kane books a match between Ambrose and Luke Harper.

An interview between Byron Saxton and Roman Reigns is aired. Reigns calls it a huge honor to be in the WrestleMania main event. He says that every time he got suplexed, he got right back up. Reigns is also going to buy a condo in Suplex City (Bitch). He also claims that the WM match changed the lives of both Reigns and Lesnar forever.

When Saxton brings up Rollins' cash in, Reigns says that he got robbed of his title in a split second. He says that thirty more seconds would have made the difference.

Oh, and Reigns has beat Rollins before, and he will do it again.


The Miz vs R-Truth

Quick match that sees Miz get the win over his old tag-team partner with the Skull-Crushing Finale.

After the match, Damien Mizdow delivers a Skull-Crushing Finale to Miz.


John Cena cuts a big time "MERICA" promo. He talks about how the US Title represents America and its many features and all that fun stuff. He vows to defend the title every week against whoever rises to the occasion.

At this point, Lana and Rusev come out. Lana calls WrestleMania a "travesty" and says that Cena doesn't deserve the title. Lana starts going on when Rusev demands the mic. Rusev claims that he didn't lose at WM. He is still America's champion and a Russian tank.

Apparently, this is Rusev world. He demands a rematch at Extreme Rules. Cena says some jokes then challenges Rusev to a match right now. Rusev's response? Waving the flag like a maniac.

He tries to summon the big Russian flag, but it doesn't happen. Cena instead summons the American flag, stirring the fans into a frenzy.



Dean Ambrose vs Luke Harper

Fun enough back and forth match that quickly turns into a prime candidate for one of our Extreme Rules matches. In the end, a pissed-off Luke Harper powerbombs Dean Ambrose through the announce table. Mr. Office Referee himself, John Cone, summons some EMTs as Harper goes insane.

The Prime Time Players mock The New Day


Sheamus vs Daniel Bryan


Before the match, Sheamus cuts a heel promo on Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler being underdogs that can't even stay in the main event.

This match was stiff, physical, and awesome. Both Sheamus and Bryan beat the holy hell out of each other with Sheamus busting out a few new moves.

The end comes when Sheamus knocks Bryan to the outside. Bryan gets busted open, and Bad News Barrett (who's on commentary) hits him with a Bullhammer to knock him out. Sheamus teases putting Bryan in the ring, but it doesn't happen. Instead, Sheamus smear's Bryan's blood on his chest.

Sheamus def Daniel Bryan by count out.

Evil Sheamus celebrates to end the show.
