WWE Smackdown Results
The show opens with a video package from Raw of the Seth Rollins/Brock Lesnar feud.
Seth Rollins, Kane, and Joey Mercury kick things off and make their way to the ring.
Rollins: Ladies and Gentlemen the Authority is back! Yeah we got the band back together, we took a trip to suplex city and we burned it to the ground. Look I know, it might have been a little uncomfortable for some of you. But change is a necessity in life, change is needed to evolve. Take me I'm a perfect example, a little over a year ago I was a member of a group called The Shield, and I made the change that was necessary, sure it wasn't popular, but look at me now I'm the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, I'm a proud member of The Authority. I'm surrounded by true brothers like Joey Mercury. Joey has supported me since day one, Joey Mercury is a genius ladies and gentlemen. Joey Mercury helped mastermind the beat down of the Beast on Raw, Joey i'm glad you're on my side. It's bittersweet, I know. We are in fact missing a member of our family, Jamie Noble was taken to the hospital on Monday Night, Noble suffered 3 broke ribs on Monday Night. Last night Joey and I spent all night in the hospital with Jamie, he is a champion! He has the heart of a warrior and make a full recovery. I'm here to tell you what we told him last night, tonight's Smackdown is dedicated to the courageous Jamie Noble. He would want us to celebrate! And no one has more to celebrate that this man, Kane! You were an integral part in taking down Brock Lesnar, you had such a great night. Monday before that you chokeslammed Ambrose to hell. Whether you're wearing a suit or a mask you showed everyone you're the devil's favorite demon!
Kane: Whether your name is Roman Reigns or Dean Ambrose, or Broooock Leeessnar. If you cross a united Authority there will be consequences. Speaking of which there seems to be a giant absence in the Authority tonight, our extended member the Big Show is missing due to these actions. *Video of Ryback and Big Show fighting backstage from Raw* At this time I ask Ryback to please join us.
Ryback makes his way to the ring and joins The Authority.
Kane: Ryback how do you explain your actions from this week's Raw.
Ryback: The Big Show didn't want to hear what I had to say, he wanted to see what I could do. And the Big Guy showed him.
Seth Rollins: You endangered countless innocent employees! You're the Intercontinental Champion, you think that's how a champion is supposed to act? You want to know how a champion is supposed to act? Maybe you should take lessons from yours truly.
Ryback: This is what a champion looks like *rips off shirt* Let me tell you there is a difference between a champion and a sell out. A champion stays and fights, a sellout runs and hides. A champion stands by them, every day. A sellout plays nice when the Beast Brock Lesnar comes to town. I wish Dean Ambrose had the Big Guys hand strength and had held on to that WWE Championship just a second longer at Money in the Bank so we could have had a REAL WWE Champion, instead of a pathetic, sellout, overly-protected child like yourself!
Kane: It's ok Seth, Ryback you'll have the chance to show everyone exactly how a champion is supposed to be when tonight you fight...ME!
Kane, Rollins, and Mercury walk away, but halfway up the ramp Seth turns around.
Seth: No you know what, cut the music! Cut it! I am sick of the lack of respect shown to me! I am the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Kane is gonna take care of you tonight Ryback. You mentioned Dean Ambrose like I have nothing to lose. I didn't beat him I annihilated him! But since he's still walking around, I wouldn't mind finishing him the job, so tonight I'm gonna take on Dean Ambrose 1 on 1. I am gonna show him, and the whole world, that not only is the Authority back, but the Authority always wins!
