Wrestling Lockup with Brandon 7.26.14: WWE Smackdown
Wrestling Lockup with Brandon is here again and it's brought to you by Triple Threat Podcast. It's WWE Smackdown recap time in this edition. This week's Smackdown took place in sunny Orlando, Florida.
- Smackdown kicked off with tag team action as the current WWE World Tag Team Champions, The Usos, faced off with Curtis Axel and Ryback. The Usos pull off some "twin magic" on Curtis Axel. Axel drop kicks Jey to the floor who lands next to Jimmy. Jey and Jimmy switch places causing Axel to grab Jimmy instead of Jey. Jimmy surprises Axel with a rollup pinfall.
- The next segment we see the newly crowned Intercontinental Champion, The Miz, in the ring for MizTV. The Miz wanted to give the WWE Universe what they truly deserved, an acceptance speech. The Miz thanks his family, wife, dogs, cats, the money maker and the fans even though The Miz's mom stated her favorite wrestler was Roman Reigns. Bo Dallas interrupts The Miz and says he won the I-C Title because he "Bo-Leived". Dolph Ziggler interrupts and calls The Miz's speech lame and says that Miz and Bo have one thing in common.....both are full of crap. Dallas says Dolph could be just like them if he "Bo-Leived". Ziggler and Dallas begin fighting each other as Miz escapes the ring.
- Bo Dallas vs Dolph Ziggler: Miz distracts Ziggler, allowing Dallas to sneak a rollup in from behind on Ziggler for the pinfall. Miz and Dallas celebrate after the match until Ziggler hits Dallas. Miz shoves Ziggler into the ring post and runs off.
- Roman Reigns is backstage hyping up his match with Alberto Del Rio later and talking about Randy Orton.
- "No DQ Match": Dean Ambrose vs Cesaro: Ambrose connects with the ring bell on Cesaro. Ambrose goes for a kendo stick shot but catches one in the gut from Cesaro.

Rollins and Cesaro attack Ambrose after the match, laying Ambrose out with "The Neutralizer" and a "Curb Stomp".
- Paige vs Naomi: Paige skipped to the ring mocking A.J. Lee. Paige makes Naomi submit to her submission. After the match Cameron attacked Naomi until leaving.
- Goldust and Stardust cut another weird promo about the cosmic key.
- Bray Wyatt vs R-Truth: Bray hits "Sister Abigail" on Truth for the pinfall. Bray cuts a promo asking Truth where Chris Jericho was to help him like he helped Jericho on RAW. Bray says Jericho is not a savior but Bray is.
- Roman Reigns vs Alberto Del Rio: Reigns connects with the "Superman Punch" and hits the "spear" afterwards. Reigns picks up the pinfall on Del Rio and celebrates to close out the show.
