Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, 12.23.15: #SmackDown

By @B_Rock1978

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. It's time for this week's Smackdown Edition.

- This week's Smackdown took place in Des Moines, Iowa. This week's show was a very special live Tuesday night edition. One could say that The New Day had a pretty bad start to their week so far. The New Day were shut out from winning any WWE Slammy Awards on RAW this week and now must defend the WWE World Tag Team Championship against the #1 Contenders, The Lucha Dragons. Dean Ambrose is coming off of a Steel Cage Match victory over Sheamus on RAW. Now the head of the Ambrose Asylum must defend the WWE Intercontinental Championship in a Triple Threat Match, against #1 Contenders, Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler. Let's get to this weeks special live Smackdown Edition recap.

- "WWE World Tag Team Championship Match": The New Day (c) vs. The Lucha Dragons: The match closes out with Sin Cara landing two springboard moonsaults on Big E for a near fall. The Dragons hit a suicide dive on New Day and Kalisto follows that with a springboard cross body on Big E. Sin Cara hits an enzuigiri on Big E and Kalisto with Salida Del Sol. Woods jumps on the apron and distracts Kalisto. While Kalisto is distracted, Sin Cara goes for a springboard moonsault, but gets caught by Big E. Big E hits the Big Ending on Sin Cara, covers and scores the pinfall.
Winners: The New Day, by pinfall, to retain the WWE World Tag Team Championship.

- Backstage, Dean Ambrose gives thoughts on defending the WWE Intercontinental Championship, tonight. Ambrose will burst Kevin Owens' head like a tomato. When the dust settles, Owens and Dolph Ziggler will fail, that's not a metaphor, that's a fact.

- "Eight Man Tag Team Match": The Wyatt Family vs. The Dudley Boys, Ryback and Kane: The match closes out with Devon hitting a flying headbutt on Bray, but Strowman stops the pinfall. Kane and Strowman go to the floor where Strowman sends Kane into the ring post. Rowan dumps Ryback into the crowd. The Dudleys are back in the ring and get a near fall double team neck breaker on Bray. The Dudleys go for Whazz Up, but Devon dives out to the floor onto Strowman, who catches Devon and applies the Bear Hug/Sleeper submission. Harper next plants a super kick on Devon. Inside the ring, Bray attacks Bubba from behind and hits Sister Abigail for the pinfall.
Winners: The Wyatt Family, by pinfall.

- Santino Marella's Christmas Party Segment: Tyler Breeze and Summer Rae call Adam Rose and Damien Sandow uggos. Santino arrives and finds his tree and decorations knocked over. Stardust and The Ascension call the party a bust and has come to The Wasteland. Neville says it's Christmas and you don't mess with a man's decorations. Titus O'Neil agrees and demands Christmas be returned. Stardust says Christmas is cancelled and The Ascension have to be defeated to get it back.

- Alberto Del Rio and Rusev (w/The League of Nations) vs. The Usos: The match closes out with Jey hitting a samoan drop, followed by the Rikishi Splash for a near fall. Jimmy gets sent into the steel steps by Rusev. Jey and Del Rio battle on the top rope. Del Rio counters a superplex with a headbutt. Barrett distracts the referee, allowing Rusev to thrust kick Jey off of Del Rio. Del Rio puts Jey in the tree of woe and hits the double stomp for the pinfall. After the match, the LON hold Jimmy and Sheamus goes for the Brogue Kick. Roman Reigns hits the ring and sends Sheamus over the announcers table. Reigns sends Del Rio into the announcers table and follows with a Superman Punch. Jey plants a super kick on Rusev and Reigns plants the Superman Punch after. The LON retreat to the back.
Winners: Alberto Del Rio and Rusev, by pinfall.

- The Ascension (w/Stardust) vs. Titus O’Neil and Neville (w/Santino Marella): The match closes out with Titus making the tag, hits a clothesline and a shoulder on The Ascension. Viktor lands a boot on Titus and knocks Neville off the apron. Stardust and The Ascension surround Santino on the floor. Neville makes the save with a corkscrew plancha onto Stardust and The Ascension. Titus hits a shoulder tackle and Neville hits Red Arrow for the pinfall.
Winners: Neville and Titus O’Neil

- Backstage, Dolph Ziggler says winning the WWE Intercontinental Championship means a lot to him because it was the first title he ever won. If he gets it back, it'll mean big things for 2016.

- Charlotte (w/Becky Lynch) vs. Brie Bella (w/Naomi): The match closes out with, Brie unloading on Charlotte with a series of clotheslines, a dropkick, a running knee, a missile drop kick and Yes Kicks. Charlotte comes back with a spear on Brie. Team BAD make their way to the ring as Naomi dumps eggnog on Becky. Becky attacks Naomi, but gets beat down by Team BAD. Charlotte doesn't help and instead applies the Figure Four and bridges into the Figure Eight submission, making Brie tap out.
Winner: Charlotte, by submission.

- Backstage, Kevin Owens is still mad about losing the Breakout Star Slammy Award to Neville, calls Dean Ambrose a fake champion, cause Owens is the real champion and reminds us that he's owned Dolph Ziggler, so he's not worried about him. Tonight, Smackdown becomes the Kevin Owens Show.

- "WWE Intercontinental Championship, Triple Threat Match": Dean Ambrose (c) vs. Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler: The match closes out with, Owens sending Ziggler into the ring post. Owens hits a senton on Ambrose and an exploder suplex for a near fall. Owens fallaway slams Ziggler into the barricade and lands punches on Ambrose. Ambrose lands a back elbow on Owens and goes for Dirty Deeds, but Ziggler stops it and hits Zig Zag on Owens and Ambrose, both, for near falls. Ziggler plants a super kick on Owens, but walks into Dirty Deeds by Ambrose. Ambrose covers and scores the pinfall, to close out this weeks Smackdown.
Winner: Dean Ambrose, by pinfall, to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
