By @B_Rock1978

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. Today's edition is your Smackdown recap from last night's show. Smackdown was in Atlanta, Georgia this week. The road to Wrestlemania continues with the first Smackdown show after this past Sunday's WWE Fast Lane. What feuds would we see setting up on the road to Wrestlemania? Let's get to the recap. 

- In Ring Segment with Daniel Bryan: Bryan talks about missed opportunities, the fans standing behind him, the "Yes Movement" being stronger than ever and has huge plans for this year. Bad News Barrett cuts off Bryan and calls him a loser, just like Dean Ambrose, who is a thief. Ambrose comes out and immediately attacks Barrett. Bryan picks up the WWE Intercontinental Championship and holds it as Ambrose and Barrett brawl. Barrett demands Bryan to hand it to him. Bryan looks as if he is, when suddenly Ambrose starts landing punches on Barrett. Ambrose grabs Barrett's I-C Title and leaves with it again.

- Dean Ambrose vs. The Miz: Miz goes for a knee on Ambrose, but Ambrose floats over and rolls Miz up for a near fall. Miz lands a neck breaker on Ambrose and gets a near fall. Miz mat wrestles until Ambrose fires back with punches, a splash and a bulldog. Bad News Barrett comes out to the ring and grabs his stolen I-C Title. Ambrose stops Barrett and knocks Barrett to the floor. Miz goes for the "Skull Crushing Finale" but Ambrose counters and hits "Dirty Deeds". Ambrose scores the pinfall as Barrett runs off, back in possession of his I-C Title.

- Backstage, Bad News Barrett says Ambrose and Daniel Bryan aren't worthy of his I-C Title and he will not let it out of his sight now.

- Nattie Neidhart (w/Tyson Kidd and Cesaro) vs Naomi (w/The Usos): Naomi with an early near fall. Mat wrestling by the divas as Nattie applies a leg lock. Naomi hits a splash on Nattie, slowing Nattie down. Nattie catches a knee in the face and Kidd checks on her. Jimmy Uso won't allow it, as he lands a kick on Kidd. Cesaro and Jey Uso step in now and Cesaro catches a kick in the face by Jey. Nattie appears to have injured her leg as the referee checks on her. Naomi makes the mistake of letting Nattie rest, as Nattie gets up and nails a clothesline on Naomi. Nattie covers and scores the pinfall.

- In Ring Segment with Rusev and Lana: Lana says an American champion stands tall with pride and doesn't agree to anyone's terms, and John Cena has no right asking for a rematch, because he lost. Russian President Vladimir Putin sent the couple a email, which they read. Rusev says he'll fight anyone but Cena because he's already crushed Cena. Jack Swagger cuts off the Russian couple. Swagger says Rusev must be scared to fight Cena again and Rusev is surrounded by real American's (WWE Fans). Swagger starts a "We The People" chant and attacks Rusev. Swagger hits a couple punches and a clothesline on Rusev. Rusev slows down Swagger with a kick. Rusev unloads with a couple more kicks, a thrust kick and then locks Swagger in "The Accolade". Rusev applies the pressure and refuses to let up until Swagger passes out.

- Daniel Bryan vs. Bad News Barrett: Bryan mat wrestles then works on Barrett's knees. Barrett hits the "Winds Of Change" on Bryan then tosses Bryan to the floor. Barrett mat wrestles Bryan next until Bryan returns fire. Bryan lands knees and stiff kicks for a near fall. Barrett gets paranoid and looks around for his I-C Title. Bryan sends Barrett to the floor and hits the suicide dive. Barrett crotches Bryan on the ropes. Barrett goes for "Wasteland" but Bryan counters into the "Yes Lock" submission. R-Truth sneaks in, grabs Barrett's I-C Title and runs off with it. Barrett goes for the "Bullhammer" but Bryan counters and hits the running knee. Bryan covers and scores the pinfall.

- After the match: Barrett is pissed as his I-C Title is gone again. We see Truth, backstage, running into Dean Ambrose. Truth tells Ambrose he just won the title. Ambrose asks for it and Truth gives it to Ambrose.

- In Ring Promo: Curtis Axel debuts the #Axelmania clock and says it has now been over 32 days and Axel still has not been eliminated from the Royal Rumble.

- Fandango (w/Rosa Mendes) vs. Curtis Axel: Axel attacks Fandango as the bell sounds and lands stomps on Fandango. Axel tosses Fandango over the top rope, points at the Wrestlemania sign and continues to claim to have not been eliminated from the Royal Rumble. Fandango is back in, attacks Axel and goes on offense. Fandango hits a sit down slam then climbs the ropes. Fandango hits the top rope leg drop on Axel, covers and scores the pinfall.

- Backstage, Damien Sandow is filming a commercial when The Miz interrupts. Miz says Sandow is terrible and mocks Sandow. The director offers Miz a spot in the commercial and Miz accepts before finding out what it's for.

- Adam Rose vs. Goldust: Rose goes on offense and traps Goldust in the corner. Rose lands corner punches. Goldust returns the favor with a few chops and then hits a power slam on Rose for a near fall. Goldust whips Rose into the corner but Rose counters and climbs to the top rope.

Show is in and lands a splash on Ziggler for a near fall. Ziggler hits the "Famasser" and finally tags in Rowan. Kane uppercuts Rowan but Ziggler takes out Kane with a slam.
Ryback is in and takes out Rollins with shoulder blocks. Ryback unloads on Rollins, lands a belly to belly, press slams Rollins, then hits a "Meat Hook" clothesline. Ryback fights off Mercury and Noble, who try to interfere. Ryback goes for "Shell Shock" but Show stops it. Rowan and Show brawl on the floor. Ziggler hits "Zig Zag" on Kane. Rollins goes for the "Curb Stomp" but Ziggler counters with a super kick. Ryback plants Rollins with the "Shell Shock", covers and scores the pinfall.
