WWE SmackDown returns to SyFy this coming Thursday night (July 23, 2015) from Lincoln, Nebraska 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:
- Dean Ambrose was out for a promo. Sheamus followed not long after and they had a match.
- Sheamus def. Dean Ambrose via distraction finish when Bray Wyatt's theme played. Prepare for more of that.
- Neville def. Adam Rose with the Red Arrow. After the match, Stardust cut a promo to continue their program.
- King Barrett cut a promo on being King of the Ring and that being cemented at Battleground after he beat R-Truth for the crown.
- Rusev def. Kevin Owens via count out when Owens walked out. Cesaro did an interview backstage where he ran into Owens and called him out for it. "WALK OWENS WALK." Ouch.
- The Bella twins def. Sasha Banks & Naomi with Nikki scoring the pin on Naomi after the Torture Rack.
- Seth Rollins def. Cesaro in the main event. Kevin Owens showed up to attack Cesaro after with a pop up powerbomb.
That's the show. Your thoughts?
