WWE SmackDown comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (April 30, 2015) from Moline, Illinois with a taped show on the SyFy channel featuring the fallout show from the Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV) this past Sunday night in Chicago.
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?!?
Verne Gagne tribute and WWE Signature
Seth Rollins and J&J Security are backstage until they run into Kane. The two, of course, start arguing about anything and everything until Rollins drops the bombshell that Kane is jealous of Rollins' success. Kane responds that he's gonna make a man out of Rollins, and he makes a match: Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.
SmackDown intro and pyro
Roman Reigns comes to the ring.
Reigns starts off by wishing Dean Ambrose luck against their "little brother", Seth Rollins. He talks about Rollins for a moment before tells us that he's going to bring the fight at Payback.
At the moment, Kane comes out to the ring while stripping off his suit. We've got a match!
Kane vs Roman Reigns
Average enough match that ends when Kane just walks out following a spear attempt.
Roman Reigns def Kane
Backstage, Renee Young interviews Seth Rollins about what happens, and Rollins says that Kane got in over his head. Rollins then goes on to say that he never runs away from a fight, but he finds a way to win on his own.
Damien Sandow vs Curtis Axel
Before the match, Sandow mimics Jojo's announcing of him and Axel (he did add a few things in for Axel)
Short match that is used for more Sandow/Axel comedy. Sandow wins with You're Welcome.

Renee Young interviews Ryback about bring attacked by Bray Wyatt. Ryback responds that Wyatt has bitten off more than he can chew. He's gonna give a shout-out to Wyatt when he devours his former disciple: Luke Harper.
Ryback vs Luke Harper
This was a pretty good and physical hoss fight that Ryback won with Shellshock
Ryback def Luke Harper
After the match, Bray Wyatt appears out of nowhere and lays out Ryback with Sister Abigail.
New Day vs The Brass Ring Club (Tag Team Championship)
THIS WAS AWESOME!!!
Seriously, these teams have some unbelievably excellent chemistry. The BRC gets the win when Xavier Woods interjects himself into the match, causing a DQ.

Backstage, Cameron and Summer Rae are gossiping about Brie Bella when Nikki Bella shows up and rips Cameron a new one. Nikki challenges Cameron to a match...girl bye!
Cameron vs Nikki Bella
For what it was, this was actually a pretty good match. Cameron showed some decent (albeit a bit annoying) character-work. Cameron's pride led to her death when she slapped Nikki. Nikki responded with a huge Bellahammer and the Rack Attack for the win.
Nikki Bella def Cameron
The Prime Time Players joyously mock New Day.
Dean Ambrose is getting ready for his match when Seth Rolling comes in and tells Ambrose to back down for their sake. Ambrose acts like he accepts the offer, but he's really looking forward to humiliating Rollins.
Recap of Bad News Barrett's King of the Ring victory.
Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins
Another awesome, physical match between these two. Both men took a hell of a beating, but they just kept coming back. Chaos ensued at the end when Kane and J&J Security got involved. However, the distractions worked in Seth's favor as he hit his new finisher on Ambrose for the win.
Oh, and another thing to mention: DEAN AMBROSE USED THE RAINMAKER ON SETH ROLLINS
Seth Rollins def Dean Ambrose
After the match, Kane, J&J, and Rollins beat down Ambrose until Roman Reigns makes the save, spearing Kane in the process. Ambrose and Reigns stand tall in the ring as Rollins looks on from the stage.
Ladies and gentlemen, our dream match is coming.
