The WWE recorded their weekly “WWE Smackdown” television show on Tuesday night, which is the final action before this Sunday’s “WWE Extreme Rule” special event. The main event saw Shield member Dean Ambrose defending his U.S. title in a four-way match. Here are the “WWE Smackdown” spoilers and results for this week’s big show.
There were two dark matches that will not air on television this week on “WWE Smackdown.” The first match saw Brodus Clay lose to Santino. The second saw former NXT champion Bo Dallas best Tyson Kidd.
The actual “WWE Smackdown” television show kicks off with a contract signing between Hornswoggle and El Torito. The two will face off on the pre-show for “WWE Extreme Rules” on Sunday night. Nonsense occurs and the good guys stand tall at the end.
Rob Van Dam vs. Jack Swagger was up next. This Sunday, it looks like there will be a three-way between Swagger, Cesaro and Van Dam. In this match, Paul Heyman and Cesaro did commentary. Cesaro causes the distraction to cost Swagger the match. Cesaro then attacks Van Dam after the match.
Alexander Rusev vs. R-Truth ended in a disqualification. The end came when Xavier Woods attacked Rusev. This was almost a mirror of “WWE Monday Night Raw” this week when R-Truth attacked during Xavier Woods’ match. “Extreme Rules” will see Rusev battle R-Truth and Woods in a handicap match.
Daniel Bryan cuts a promo about his match at “Extreme Rules” with Kane. Kane responds with a video promo. After this, The Wyatt Family came out to battle The Usos and Sheamus in a six-man tag team match. Bray Wyatt gets the pinfall win for his team. They then beat down The Usos after the match.
Dolph Ziggler battled Damien Sandow in the next “WWE Smackdown” match. On “WWE Monday Night Raw,” Sandow came out dressed like Magneto during Hugh Jackman’s appearance, and dressed like Magneto again during this match. This is more of a comedy match and Ziggler wins with the Zig Zag. In a rematch from earlier in the show, Alexander Rusev takes on R-Truth again. Xavier Woods interferes again.
Intercontinental champion Big E takes on Titus O’Neill next. O’Neill is very aggressive, just like he was against Sheamus on “WWE Monday Night Raw.” This one ends in a disqualification when O’Neill refused to break the count on a hold. Big E flips out after the match and slaughters O’Neill before tearing up the ringside area.
The main event for “WWE Smackdown” sees Dean Ambrose defend his U.S. title in a four-way match. His challengers are Alberto Del Rio, Ryback and Curtis Axel. The Shield are barred from ringside. All three bad guys beat the hell out of Dean Ambrose, but then turn on each other to try to win. Ambrose then sneaks in and gets a roll up to win the match. The bad guys attack him after the match and The Shield runs in to destroy everyone. “WWE Smackdown” airs on Friday nights at 8 p.m. EST on SyFy.
