WWE Smackdown Results
*Bray Wyatt cuts off the Smackdown opening* Last Monday Ryback, you stood toe to toe with me and won. But I know, beneath the muscle made body, there is an Achilles heel. I will make an example out of you. You are chasing a garden of Eden that doesn't exist. Beneath the surface your wounds will fester. Scratch scratch scratch. Here's some advice friend, avoid the itch....RUN!
Dean Ambrose is in the ring and says he does things alone. He fights alone, he sleeps alone, he drinks alone. Last Monday he found himself alone standing tall. At Payback this Sunday, alone is exactly what he's going to be. They've got Seth Rollins the little chicken weasel, Randy Orton who last week ended up right around *here* after eating a spear, and Roman Reigns...so yeahhh. I hit Dirty Deeds on my best friend, I didn't plan to but I have one thing to say to Roman Reigns---
*Roman Reigns music cuts him off* Roman Reigns makes his way through the crowd as usual and joins him. Dean says you know, you're not getting an apology. Reigns says he wasn't expecting one, he did exactly what he thought he'd do. He pulled the trigger, once, that's all he'll get. Roman says regardless we're brothers. Tonight we're brothers, but Sunday he's bringing the big guns, and he hopes Dean does the same. *Roman extends a hand to Dean*
*Kane's music cuts them off* Kane says he is sorry to interrupt the moment, but they should be less concerned with their bromance, and more concerned about their Fatal Four Way match. Ambrose cuts him off and says shouldn't Kane be concerned because on Monday Triple H said if Seth Rollins loses then Kane is out of a job. Kane says don't worry about his job, Dean should be more worried about his match tonight...with Sheamus. And that match is right---
*Ambrose cuts off Kane* NOW!? We get it, that's the only time you can make a match. If Sheamus is done french braiding his hair, get him out here!!
Sheamus vs. Dean Ambrose
They lock up and Sheamus and Ambrose struggle all over the ring to take control. Ambrose gets Sheamus in the corner, but Sheamus fights out.

Seth Rollins comes into Kane's office and reminds him that if Seth doesn't win at Payback, that Kane will be FIRED.

Kane says he doesn't need the money, he saved his money, he's set for life. Seth says Kane needs to do what's best for business. Kane says he still doesn't know what he'll do, and he won't until Sunday night. Seth sarcastically says good luck with Roman Reigns tonight. Kane says thanks, and good luck in your match tonight...with Ryback! Seth looks like someone kicked his puppy.
Rusev and Lana come out to the ring. Lana is in a pin stripped suit and she has a notebook with her. USA chants early, Rusev yells that Lana has something she wants to say. Lana reads off a piece of paper. "Last week I insulted my country by divulging in your perverse western customs. I allowed these false ideologies to corrupt my loyalties and dedication to the Russian federation and our long standing traditions. I beg for forgiveness from my family, country, and the Russian Super Athlete, Rusev." Rusev shoves her away and grabs the mic, he says John Cena on Raw you showed everyone why he will loses. Cena you were not prepared, you lack focus. Rusev says he will make Cena scream I quit, I quit, I quit before he passes out. Rusev shows a cropped video of John Cena saying I quit on repeat. Rusev poses as the Russian flag drops.
Renee Young is backstage with Ryback. Renee asks Ryback can focus on his match with Wyatt looming. Ryback says he doesn't under estimate the opportunity he has facing off with the WWE Champion. As for Wyatt, Ryback saw fear in his eyes on Monday. Tonight, Ryback is mighty hungry that means only one thing....FEED. ME. MOOOORE!

Renee is backstage with Naomi and Tamina. Renee says we've seen a different side of Naomi lately. What's caused this change? Naomi says she's said it before, she'll say it again. We've been here for YEARS, and have nothing to show for it. Divas are handed anything, sometimes you have to take what you want! Tamina says they're running this Diva's division.

We see the footage from Raw of Daniel Bryan relinquishing the Intercontinental Champion. I'm still way too sad about this.
Bo Dallas comes out to spread insperation to us all! He says this past week on Raw may have been the last time we se Daniel Bryan, life may not always be Yes or No. While Daniel is gone, and that's difficult, Bo sees this as an opportunity. There are 5 stages of grief, and Bo will help the fans get through them all. First is denial, there is no denying Daniel Bryan let everyone down. The next is anger, anger is good anger is healthy, especially when directed and Daniel for letting us down. The next is bargaining, we're all going to get a great bargain on the Daniel Bryan T-shirts now that he's gone. Next is depression, Daniel will be depressed when he realize everyone has forgotten him. Finally, acceptance...he can help us all accept that Daniel Bryan is never ever coming back. All you have to do...is BOOOLIEVE!!!

Adam Rose is backstage with Rosa. She says she can't focus with him just WATCHING. They pan over to the Rosebuds, a guy in a hotdog outfit. Hotdog guys says he was just wondering when they got paid...Rose says that what they do is ART! Hotdog guy asks if they're not getting paid? Rose grabs him and says he's just like the bunny!

Reigns had a hell of match just now, and that's nothing to sneeze at. Seth continues talking but Dean Ambrose appears behind Rollins and Renee slowly backs away. Rollins asks why she's leaving. He turns around and sees Ambrose, with a tray of cookies, which he's eating. Ambrose says, what? You guys want a cookie? He throws the tray at Noble and pushes through Mercury to start attacking Seth. Seth and Ambrose battle, J&J try to take Ambrose out but Roman Reigns runs in and take them out with a big piece of rolling equipment. Rollins runs away.
