Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, 6.7.14: WWE Smackdown
"Last night was plan A, tonight is plan B....there's always a plan B."
Triple H's final words before the chair shot heard around the world and the implosion of The Shield. Seth Rollins joined the dark side as he turned his back on what Roman Reigns stated was a team close like "brothers". Seth Rollins stood with Triple H and Randy Orton over the bodies of Ambrose and Reigns, with a smirk, as if he had no care in the world at what he had just done. Seth Rollins joined Evolution. This is probably the biggest story going on in the WWE at the moment. Many questions have been developing from this. Like, why did Rollins do it? Where does this leave The Shield? Will there be a new Shield member soon to take Rollins' old spot? Of course all the CM Punk fans are jumping out again saying this would be the perfect opportunity for the "Straight Edge Savior" to return and join Reigns and Ambrose. If WWE decides to go with bringing in an NXT rookie to join The Shield, the WWE has plenty of great up and coming talent to choose from as well.
Who knows what WWE has up their sleeves. Where ever they go with this feud, it should be an interesting summer at least. Alright let's get this week's Smackdown recap started!
Highlights of Smackdown:
- Smackdown kicked off with the turncoat himself, Seth Rollins, cutting a promo with Triple H by his side now. Rollins is still sporting his Shield wrestling gear during the promo. Rollins states that only he knows why he did what he did and the only one that he owes an explanation to is himself. Dolph Ziggler arrives to ruin Rollins' moment of explanation and cuts a promo on Rollins and Evolution, ripping on the group. Triple H says since Ziggler is showing initiative he can face Rollins tonight, as in right now. Rollins defeats Ziggler in his first match as a heel.
