WWE SmackDown returns to SyFy this coming Thursday night (Sept. 22, 2015) from Corpus Christi, Texas 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:
- Kane opened with a promo about being in charge and how glad he is to be back at work. He booked the night's matches and when Seth Rollins interrupted him and said everyone knows he's THE DEMON KANE, he was booked into a match with Dean Ambrose in the main event.
- Roman Reigns def. Luke Harper in a short match after the spear.
- The New Day def. Neville & Lucha Dragons after a promo on The Dudley Boyz building their match at Madison Square Garden. Xavier Woods scored the pin for New Day after a good match.
- Cesaro def. Bo Dallas in the same outline they had for Dallas' match with Ryback on Raw this week, complete with pre-match Bolieve promo.
- Charlotte and Becky Lynch were out for a promo to continue what they were saying on Raw but Paige interrupted. Natalya then came out and got into it with Paige, who slapped her and bailed.
- Ryback & Dolph Ziggler def. Kevin Owens & Rusev because Owens is back to walking out on matches. He left Rusev to eat a superkick and the Shell Shock before getting pinned.
- The Dudley Boyz did a backstage segment saying they'll beat The New Day at the Garden to win the tag team titles. They bumped into the Prime Time Players, who wished them luck.
- Dean Ambrose def. Seth Rollins in the main event when Kane's pyro and red lighting gimmick distracted him. Rollins cut a promo after saying he's going to make Kane's life miserable if he continues on. Naturally, Kane continued on and the show closed with him laughing on the titantron.
That's it, folks. You watching?
