WWE SmackDown returns to SyFy this coming Thursday night (May 7, 2015) from Ottawa, Ontario but the show was taped, as usual, on Tuesday. That means full spoilers are readily available if you're the impatient type who doesn't want to wait a couple days for the payoff.
Unwrap that present early:
- Jerry Lawler interviewed King Barrett to start the show. They've completely done up a new character for Barrett and he ran down Lawler here and bullied him until Dolph Ziggler ran in to make the save. That led to a match that Ziggler won by disqualification when Sheamus interfered. Neville came out to make the save and it was restarted as a tag team match. The babyfaces went over after an exciting match.
- Luke Harper def. Fandango and Erick Rowan came out and beat Fandango down post-match while Harper watched.
- Lana was out for a promo but Rusev cut her off and sent her away to cut a promo himself, essentially saying he'll make John Cena quit.
- New Day def. Brass Ring Club & Ryback when Bray Wyatt's entrance gimmick distracted THE BIG GUY, who was the mystery partner in this match, and New Day took advantage on Tyson Kidd.
- Naomi def. Emma and executed a post-match beat down with Tamina Snuka to get heat.
- The Lucha Dragons def. Los Matadores in a typical tag team match.
- The main event was the contract signing for Payback featuring Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and Randy Orton. Kane was out and Rollins stood on the stage while everyone else was in the ring trying to get Kane to sign the contract for him. Eventually, the contract was signed by all and -- SURPRISE! -- they brawled to end the show.
