*** Smackdown ***

- This week's Smackdown took place in Portland, Oregon.

- WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins kicks off Smackdown in the ring with a microphone. Rollins says we all need to slow down and witness pure greatness....him. He tamed "The Viper" Randy Orton, he escaped Sheamus' attempted cash in, he brought Neville back down to Earth and he shattered John Cena's nose. We will all tell our grandchildren about how great Seth Rollins is. Rollins says Cena accepted his challenge on Tough Enough cause he didn't have the courage to meet Rollins face to face. Rollins dares Cena to show up on RAW and realize that all have failed that have crossed Seth Rollins.
Neville interrupts Rollins and heads to the ring, as Rollins says no one called for a superhero. Neville says Cena still beat Rollins with a broken nose, if it wasn't for Orton then Sheamus would be the champ right now and Neville hit the Red Arrow and Rollins couldn't kick out. Rollins tells Neville he had his chance and failed, like everyone else. Neville tells Rollins he talks too much. Cesaro interrupts next and sides with Neville stating that Rollins talks too much. Kevin Owens suddenly comes out of nowhere and attacks Cesaro. Owens sends Cesaro into the ring steps. Inside the ring, Rollins attacks Neville and turn buckle power bombs him to end the segment.

- Charlotte defeated Naomi, by submission. Charlotte charges and runs into boots from Naomi. Charlotte back drops Naomi over the top rope onto Sasha Banks and Tamina. Back in the ring, Charlotte takes down Naomi, applies the Figure Four submission and bridges into the Figure Eight. Naomi taps out.

- WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback is in the ring with a microphone. Ryback says he's back, he feels great, winning the I-C Title was a proud moment, his staph infection almost ending his career or worse his life, thanks the fans for the support and Miz and Big Show better wake up cause it's feeding time.

- The Wyatt Family are in the ring with a microphone. Luke Harper says he was born holding the devil's hand. Bray Wyatt says Harper was once blind, but Bray gave him sight. At Summer Slam Bray will bring his brother and wants Roman Reigns to bring his lunatic. Dean Ambrose interrupts and says he and Reigns will do their talking with their fists. Roman Reigns comes out and it's Reigns vs. Harper, next.

- Roman Reigns defeated Luke Harper, by DQ. Reigns hits an uppercut and back body drops Harper on the apron. Reigns hits the running apron drop kick and tosses Harper back in the ring. Bray looks to interfere, but gets cut off by Ambrose. Bray sends Ambrose into the barricade. Reigns hits the Superman Punch on Harper, but Bray attacks Reigns causing the DQ. After the match, Ambrose hits a suicide dive on both Bray and Harper. Bray and Harper beat down Ambrose, until Reigns makes the save, dumping both Wyatts over the barricade.

- Sheamus says the WWE Universe is sick of Seth Rollins talking, Randy Orton hitting RKO's out of nowhere and the WWE fans want to be entertained. Sheamus had the chance to usher in a new and fresher era, but Orton ruined it. Sheamus promises a Brogue Kick for Orton and Rollins.

- The Prime Time Players defeated The New Day, by pinfall. The New Day attempt to walk out, however, are stopped by The Lucha Dragons and Los Matadores. Titus grabs Xavier Woods and tosses him back in the ring. Darren Young hits the Gut Check and scores the pin.

- Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens defeated Cesaro and Neville, by pinfall. Rollins hits the turn buckle power bomb and goes for the Pedigree on Cesaro. Cesaro back body drops Rollins, but Rollins gets a near fall with a sunset flip. Cesaro locks in the Sharpshooter submission and has Rollins in pain and trapped in the middle of the ring. Rollins is about to tap out when Kevin Owens runs in. Cesaro releases the submission and goes for the Cesaro Swing on Owens. Rollins rolls up Cesaro from behind and scores the pin. After the match, Owens attacks Cesaro but Cesaro fights back and slams Owens with an over head slam. Neville then hits the Red Arrow on Owens, to close out the show.
