Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, 5.24.14: WWE Smackdown
Let me tell you something brother, it's Saturday, brother and it's time for another Smackdown recap brother! Yeah...anyway...This week's Smackdown, just like RAW, took place in England. Last week we saw more build up to the John Cena and Bray Wyatt feud with it made official that they would face off in a "Last Man Standing" Match at WWE Payback. The Usos backed up John Cena in his feud with The Wyatts. Batista viciously attacked Dolph Ziggler after their one on one match. Damien Sandow cut a promo about being held back until his mic got cut off. More Rhodes Family fighting as Cody Rhodes grows frustrated with losing. Let's get this week's recap started...brother!
Highlights of Smackdown:
-The Immortal one himself, Hulk Hogan, appeared to kick off the show. Hogan was the official host of Smackdown this week. Hogan cut a promo advertising the WWE Network and building it up coming to the UK soon. Nothing special....brother.
- Dolph Ziggler got another shot at Batista in a "No DQ Match", after Ziggler was taken out by the animal last week. Ziggler had no better luck this week as Batista picked up the victory.
- Bo Dallas (I.R.S.' son and Bray Wyatt's brother, for those that didn't know) made his long awaited debut. Bo Dallas tried to turn Sin Cara into a "Bo-Leiver" as they went one on one. Dallas wins in his debut.
- More party shenanigans from Adam Rose and his party posse as they targeted Vickie Guerrerro. Vickie in my opinion is a life long lemon, judging by the sour face she sells all the time.
- Bray Wyatt cut a promo calling John Cena a monster and a liar. Accused Cena of using The Usos to help him and he'll just cast them aside when he's done using them.
- Sheamus and Cesaro continue their feud as Cesaro attacked Sheamus in his match with Alberto Del Rio.
- The main event saw The Usos in tag team action against The Wyatt Family. The Usos win by DQ when Bray Wyatt gets involved. John Cena hits the ring and hits "Attitude Adjustment" on Erick Rowan. Bray and Cena stare down to close the show.
Quick Match Results:
-"No DQ Match": Batista def. Dolph Ziggler by pin.
-The Funkadactyls def. Nikki Bella and Eva Maria by pin. Summer Rae served as the referee.
-Bo Dallas def. Sin Cara by pin.
-Sheamus def. Alberto Del Rio by DQ.
-The Usos def. The Wyatt Family by DQ.
WWE News and Rumors:
-The WWE Tag Team Titles almost changed hands while on their European Tour this week. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan def. The Usos to win the titles. The Wyatt Family, however, cheated to do it. WWE backstage personnel agent, Dave "Fit" Finley, told the referee what happened and the referee restarted the match allowing The Usos to pick up the win. Exactly what kind of pull backstage does Finley have that a referee would listen to him and restart a match? Hmmm
- Sources are stating that former WWE Divas Champion, AJ Lee, will not be returning to WWE TV anytime soon. AJ will be marrying the "Cult of Personality" himself, CM Punk, in a few weeks. AJ and Punk will be doing the married couple thing for the next few months. It's being reported AJ might be back in time for either Money In The Bank or SummerSlam.
