Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, 5.17.14: WWE Smackdown
The weekend is here! Hope everyone is enjoying it. It's Saturday and it's time for the WWE Smackdown recap of Wrestling Lockup with Brandon. Last night's show surprisingly didn't have much feud build up to WWE Payback, other then the Cena/Bray Wyatt feud.
Highlights of Smackdown:
-Cena and Bray Wyatt cut promos on each other. Cena makes up a song of his own to sing about Wyatt. Wyatt does his usual promo about Cena and his followers. Cena accepts Wyatt's "Last Man Standing Match" challenge for WWE Payback and agrees to face anyone of Wyatt's choosing in the main event later tonight.
- Cody Rhodes appears to again be turning heel soon as he lost to Jimmy Uso and was upset at his brother, Goldust, after their tag match with The Usos.
- Another Los Matadores vs 3MB comedy skit match.
- Nikki Bella and Nattie Neidhart met in a rematch from RAW with Eva Marie as special referee. Note to WWE, never....ever....ever let Eva referee again....ever.
- Batista sends a message to The Shield by viciously attacking Dolph Ziggler, after their match. Ziggler tastes a Batista Bomb in the ring and on top of the outside barricade.
- Damien Sandow cut an interesting promo after losing to Santino. Sandow says that he's always handcuffed, but he does everything for the company like a good little soldier. His mic gets cut off as Sandow says he's being held back and pretends to be handcuffed behind his back.
- Bray Wyatt chooses fellow Wyatt Family member, Erick Rowan, to face John Cena. The Wyatts surround the ring until The Usos come out and even the odds up for Cena. Cena wins the match and has a stare down with Bray Wyatt to close out the show.
