WWE SmackDown results, live blog (Aug. 6, 2015): Roman Reigns vs. Rusev

WWE SmackDown comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Aug. 6, 2015) from Sacramento, California with a taped show on the SyFy channel featuring all the latest build to the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for later this month 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 Roddy Piper tribute video is aired.


Roman Reigns comes out to start the show.

He panders to Sacramento a bit before talking about his feud with Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper entering the fray. Reigns isn't much about asking for help, but when a family faces him in the eyes, he needs some family help of his own. That is where his brother, Dean Ambrose, comes in.

Reigns then challenges Wyatt and Harper to a  tag match at SummerSlam. Reigns says that Wyatt will be picking teeth out of his beard at the end of the show.

At this time, Rusev and Hot Summer (I'm rolling with this) come out. He quells the USA chant and tells Reigns to leave as he has some stuff to say. Reigns mocks Rusev by referencing the Single White Female saga that Rusev, Hot Summer, and Lana are involved in, and calls Rusev a creep.

Rusev says more stuff, and Reigns says that we have no idea what he was saying. However, this is America, and the only thing we got from his tirade is that Rusev is a sexist freak, and he will get destroyed tonight.

Rusev viciously waves his Bulgarian flag as the segment ends.


The New Day vs The Primetime Players and Mark Henry

This was a pretty fun tag match despite the fact that we've seen it a few times before. The usual roles were played with Darren Young being the face-in-peril, Titus O'Neil being the best hot tag in WWE, and Mark Henry being Mark Henry (oh, and New Day did their thing well). The end comes when Kofi Kingston is thrown by O'Neil into the waiting clutches of Henry, who delivers a World's Strongest Slam.

Rich Brennan interviews The New Day about their loss. They complain about Mark Henry being involved in the match before turning toward Brennan and his negativity before spontaneously breaking out in song

A vignette for Charlotte is aired and they showed a clip of Charlotte's match against Mia Yim for all you indy fans.


Charlotte vs Naomi

Very quick match that ends by DQ when Sasha Banks stops a Figure Eight from Charlotte.

But wait, Mike Chioda's hearing voices. That must mean....


Charlotte and Becky Lynch vs Naomi and Sasha Banks


This tag match was pretty long and also quite solid here with all four women doing a pretty good job. Naomi and Sasha get the win when Naomi reverses a small package attempt from Charlotte.

Stardust vs Zack Ryder

Pretty standard match here with nothing much to mention. Stardust gets the win with the Queens' Crossbow

After the match, Stardust gets a mic and cuts a promo on Stephen Amell, who will be at Raw. Stardust tells Amell to be his hero.


Rich Brennan interviews Big Show about his preparation for his match against Ryback and The Miz at SummerSlam. Show says that he's ready to face Ryback, and then he goes on to mock him. Show says that he's gonna destroy The Miz and knock out Ryback.


Roman Reigns vs Rusev

This was a pretty good hoss fight here with both men getting in some good, strong offense. About 3/4 through the match, Lana came out and had a catfight with Hot Summer. After Lana leaves, Rusev is thrown off enough to allow Reigns to hit the spear for the win.

After the bell, Bray Wyatt applauds Reigns' victory before accepting his SummerSlam challenge, with Wyatt welcoming the upcoming war.
