WWE SmackDown comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Aug. 27, 2015) from Providence, Rhode Island with a taped show on the SyFy channel featuring the fallout show from the SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV) that went down this past Sunday night in Brooklyn, New York.
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.
The Wyatt Family come out to start the show.
Luke Harper tells us that our eyes have been shut and our ears clogged with lies. We're already dead, but we don't know it. Bray Wyatt's truth will give us life.
Wyatt takes the mic and tells us that he doesn't throw the words "brother" and "family" around aimlessly. Wyatt's family means everything to him, and Wyatt means everything to his family. He starts talking about Sister Abigail providing a down-and-out Wyatt with a savior by the name of Braun Strowman, who Abigail adores.
Wyatt calls himself the new face of fear, Harper the new face of desolation, and Strowman the new face of destruction
As the Wyatts pose, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns enter.
Reigns addresses the fact that Strowman kicked their asses on Monday, but many more are to come. Reigns says that they're going down swinging. Ambrose says that he'll take the ugly one.
Ambreigns enter the ring and a staredown ensues until the Wyatts leave.
The Dudley Boyz vs The Ascension
Wait a minute. The Dudleys, Sting in an upcoming world title match, Rock vs Triple H rumored for WrestleMania....just bring back the colored ketchup now while we're at it.
This match went about as you would expect it to go with The Ascension getting some offense in, but The Dudleys coming back for the win via the 3D

As D-Von and Bubba Ray set up a table, The New Day comes out with signs to protest the harsh treatment of furniture in WWE (and Big E's love of booty). Bubba Ray and D-Von respond to these protests by delivering a Bubba Bomb to Viktor through a table.
Neville vs Kevin Owens
As you would expect, this was a pretty fun match with both men trading some good offense. Owens got the win with the pop-up powerbomb.

Becky Lynch and Charlotte hype each other up before running into The Bella Twins. The four bicker before Charlotte absolutely owns Nikki by referencing her feud with Brie last year. Becky also dropped a Monty Python reference
Charlotte and Becky Lynch vs The Bella Twins
Team BAD are on commentary because of course.
This was a fairly short but good match with all four women getting in some good offense (including Brie busting out a Calf Killer out of absoutely nowhere). Charlotte and Becky get the win after Charlotte pins Brie with one of her more athletic pinning predicaments.

Seth Rollins comes out to the ring.
He says that Monday was supposed to be the greatest moment of his life when his bronze statue was to be unveiled. He reminds us about why he says he deserves his statue (simultaneously holding the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and United States Championship). He says that he deserves victory parades and movies in his honor.
Monday was supposed to be Rollins' night, but what ruined it? Sting.
Rollins plays it off, saying that everyone is jealous of him, including Sting. Rollins asks why Sting has the right to stand in his ring and assault him.
Rollins begged Triple H for his match against Sting, and he got it because he gets what he wants. Rollins vows to end Sting at Night of Champions.
Jojo interviews Sheamus. Sheamus talks about how Dean Ambrose has a lot on his mind and how he should stay focused on Sheamus. If Ambrose loses focus, he will eat a tasty Brogue Kick because Sheamus is the Money in the Bank holder, and he can do what he wants.
It is what it is.
Ryback and Dolph Ziggler vs Rusev and Big Show
This was an average if uninspired tag match that featured Big Show and Rusev not getting along well at well with Rusev tagging himself in multiple times. In the end, Big Show KO'd Ziggler, but Rusev tagged himself in and called for The Accolade while looking at Show in psychotic ecstasy. Rusev locked The Accolade in, but Show entered and KO'd Rusev. Ziggler crawled over to and pinned Rusev for the win.

Backstage, Dean Ambrose is preparing for his match with Sheamus, but his mind is on The Wyatt Family. Roman Reigns tells him just to focus on Sheamus as he has something in mind for The Wyatts
Dean Ambrose vs Sheamus
This was a quite good and physical match that saw both men hit each other with some big offense. After a Wyatt Family distraction, Sheamus gets the win with a Brogue Kick.

After the match, The Wyatts circle Ambrose when Roman Reigns tries to come to the rescue. He delivers a Superman Punch to Luke Harper, then comes face to face with Braun Strowman. Reigns goes for the attack, but is promptly eviscerated by Strowman.
The Wyatt Family stands tall to end the show.
