Recommended Posts

I'm back after a lengthy absence, anyway show looks interesting A Shield heavy show:


* Lilian Garcia comes out for SmackDown. JBL gets cheered while Michael Cole is met with mostly boos.

* A recap from Night of Champions and RAW is shown first. Vickie Guerrero is in the ring to open SmackDown. Loud boos when she says “Excuse Me!” She welcomes us to SmackDown. As the General Manager, she needs to make this show the most thrilling, best ever. She’s here to introduce to someone. She repeats the WWE Championship title holder streaks. She introduced Daniel Bryan. Bryan says he would much rather be champion for 1 day then be a corporate suck up. Vickie says she is his boss & giving him an opportunity to come clean. Daniel says they both know he did nothing wrong. Vickie questions it & said he needs to come forward & tell the truth. Daniel asked if she wants the truth, and gave her it & said he kneed Orton in the face & the ref could have counted to 20 because Orton was knocked out. He said he should still be WWE Champion. Vickie says she could have fired Daniel & hopes he never becomes the face of WWE. Daniel said everyone here should be happy Vickie has no power. Vickie said Daniel deserved to be beat up by The Shield. She shows us photos of all the superstars who helped Bryan on RAW Monday. She said we will have all 10 superstars plus Bryan in an 11 on 3 gauntlet match. One man will face all 3 members of The Shield at once until that person is defeated. She said she’s saving Daniel for last & laughs victoriously. She leaves & the crowd chants asshole.

* Ryback will be in action later tonight.

* They show a commercial for John Cena’s app.

* WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee vs. Naomi is up next. Cameron is at ringside and Natalya is on commentary. AJ gets the win by submission.

* Jack Swagger vs. Santino Marella is up next. Zeb Colter cuts a promo before the match and says Swagger’s opponent is an immigrant. Santino ends up winning with a roll up.

* Ryback comes out with Paul Heyman and Curtis Axel. His opponent is some local guy named Nick from Cincinnati. Paul Heyman speaks and says that we know the big news – He’s the best in the world. He would like to give credit to CM Punk for giving him all he could handle at Night of Champions. He says our hero at Night of Champions wasn’t CM Punk and the winner of the match was Paul Heyman. He could not have done it without his hero. Ryback says Paul is gracious and doesn’t need to be picked on by Punk. Ryback said he hates bullies. Ryback says Nick tried to intimidate little kids and wants him to intimidate Ryback. Ryback squashes the guy & picks up the victory in less than two minutes.

* Randy Orton comes out. He says at Night of Champions, Daniel Bryan & Scott Armstrong conspired to steal the WWE Title from him. He takes all the blame and says the last two years he went deep down and thought we and the company wanted him to be like John Cena. He said he locked the way the viper because he thought that’s what everyone wanted. He said he want back to the viper that he was 3 years ago and made an example out of The Miz so we’d know who he really and truly is. The recap from RAW is shown and Orton said let that stand to a warning to anyone who thinks they will get in his path. He said after Battleground he will be champion and he is going to end the war between himself & Daniel Bryan. He promises to be our, no, not ours, once again promises to be his WWE Champion. The Shield comes out for their Gauntlet Match.

* The Shield’s first opponent is Darren Young and they destroy him. Titus O’Neil is out next and he fights them off but eventually they beat him down and pin him.

Dolph Ziggler is out next but he also gets overpowered. He finally fights back and takes them out one by one but gets counted out and loses after a spear from Roman Reigns.

Kofi Kingston is out next. Reigns tries to attack him on the ramp but Kofi dodges him. Kofi takes out Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose with dropkicks. Reigns takes Trouble In Paradise but the pin is broken. The Shield take back control and pin Kofi after Dean Ambrose hits his finisher.

Rob Van Dam is out next while Reigns is still down. RVD takes on Rollins and Ambrose. RVD hits a double Rolling Thunder and goes up for the Five Star Frogsplash but Triple H’s music hits and out he comes, calling the match off. Triple H argues with Vickie at ringside as the fans chant “this is bullshit!” Triple H sends everyone to the back and it appears the match is over.

* Backstage segment with Triple H yelling at Vickie backstage. Vickie says she thought the Gauntlet Match was best for business. Triple H tells her to make a six-man match – Daniel Bryan and The Usos vs. The Shield.

* Triple H is backstage with Zack Ryder and Justin Gabriel. He says they are talented. They want some competition. Triple H sends them to the ring and says he will find them some competition. Out comes Luke Harper and Erick Rowan with Bray Wyatt. Rowan and Harper win the match. Bray attacks Ryder after the match and says he will continue to take people out for Abigail.

* Rob Van Dam is backstage. Triple H walks in and apologizes for Vickie putting him in the gauntlet match. Triple H gives RVD a rematch against Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Title. Del Rio runs in and attacks RVD.

* R-Truth vs. Alberto Del Rio is up next. Del Rio gets the win by submission.

* The Shield are out first for the match followed by The Usos and Daniel Bryan. The Shield dominate most of the match on both of the Usos. The Uso in the ring is finally able to tag in Daniel Bryan & Bryan cleans house. The Usos take out Roman Reigns & Rollins jumps on them. The other Uso then jumps on all four of them and it’s down to Bryan & Ambrose. Bryan locks in the Yes Lock but Ambrose gets to the ropes. Bryan hits him with the knees for the win. In what may have been part of the post-show, Randy Orton came down and attacked Bryan but Bryan got the upperhand and sent Orton to the back.

Man, I like The Shield as much as the next guy, but putting them in six matches seems like too much of a good thing.

But I thought they were being buried.
Says who? The Shield have been main eventing most of the Raws and Smackdowns since Summerslam.
Says a shitload of people for the last three months. Of course it was insane, but ....there ya go

Triple H tucking his tail between his legs and sucking up to most of the face roster is kind of awesome.


I really hope that's the plan. Great turn if so. He can't fire the entire roster, can he? Especially since Smackdown is the night after Raw and he didn't have time to really formulate a plot.


I also think they'll have it like the Scott Armstrong plot device where it's clear HHH gave him an order and bribed him with hush money without saying it. He told Vicki to make the gauntlet match in order to come off like a good guy, but does so really to save his flunkies from an embarrassing loss. And then he might have set RVD up for an attack from Alberto (again, with telling the audience this explicitly).


Soooo excited for Friday already.

Yeah, I'm sensing disingenuous face tendencies from Trollple H. He only stopped the Sheild match after they beat up their top contenders (and Kofi, because, why not?) and when they were about to lose as well. I wouldn't be shocked if he set up RVD to be jumped by Del Rio, and putting Ryder and Gabriel against the Wyatts hardly seems like a face move. It's like, "oh, you want a match, fine....AGAINST KAAAAAAAANE!"

Also, this is now the second time HHH has used the Wyatts against a foe. I feel like this is less they're aligned with him, and more he's just using them, which will soon lead to Bray calling him out about it and lecturing him on how you can't control a force of nature/evil/chaos (or maybe a "you play with fire, you get burnt"). Granted, it wouldn't have made any sense, but imagine the pop if the Wyatt Family made the save instead of the WCW job squad on Monday.

Why has the WWE become all about the gauntlet? It's really pretty awesome if you ask me,


Heyman/Ryback is a perfect pairing. Ryback needed something to get his new gimmick even more over, and Heyman needed someone who was around full time that was a threat to Punk.


Now I want to see Lesnar/Ryback interactions more than anything.
