Hello everyone and welcome back to WrestlingNewsWorld's Smackdown Coverage, aka the Zackdown! We are coming toward the end of the road to SummerSlam! This week's Zackdown Question of the Week: If John Cena can't wrestle at SummerSlam, who would you like to see fill his spot?
WWE Smackdown Results
Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring to kick things off! We see footage from Raw of Randy Orton almost beating Seth Rollins, then Sheamus almost cashing in before Randy stopped him.
Seth- Look I just want to slow everyone down for a second. We need to take a moment to recognize what's happening before our very eyes. I know, we all live very faced paced lives, but if we don't soak up what's happening around us, we're taking life for granted. Something this special, doesn't come along every day, month or year. This is beyond generational, there aren't words to describe. Babe Ruth for instance, this would be like if Babe Ruth hit 1000 more homeruns. Or if Michael Jordan had won 20 more MVPs. This is on a level the Rolling Stones or Beatles couldn't put into words. This is...me. This is YOUR WWE World Heavyweight Champion, at the top of his game! Look at the last few weeks of my life. This last week I tamed the viper, I even escaped the cash in by Sheamus. A couple weeks back, the man gravity forgot, Neville, I brought him back to Earth. Let's not forget the icing on the cake, I broke John Cena's nose, I shattered it into a million pieces. On day your grandchildren, will ask you what was the greatest accomplishment in your life and you will tell them, I saw Seth Rollins in his prime. And the crazy thing is that there are still some people who refuse to believe the future is now. People like the aforementioned John Cena. Cena still doesn't get it. Let's look at what Cena had to say on Tough Enough. *We see footage of Cena saying he'd be back at SummerSlam*. So there you have it, John Cena has accepted my challenge and will face me at SummerSlam, title for title, winner take all. But he accepted my challenge on Tough Enough? In fact he had to have Daniel Bryan do it for him. If he is half the man he thinks he is, I have one more challenge for him. I challenge, no I DARE him to show up at Raw and accept my challenge face to face. At Summerslam John will find out what everyone has. Dean Ambrose FAILED, Brock Lesnar FAILED, Randy Orton FAILED---
Neville's music cuts Rollins off.
Seth- Woah woah woah is there a cat stuck in a tree or an old lady that needs help crossing the street. Nobody rang for a superhero Neville.
Neville- No one called for a superhero, but apparently it takes one to shut you up. Seth, I have been sitting back there listening to the list of all your achievements. I'm disappointed in all the detail you decided to leave out. When you broke Cena's nose, he still beat you. If it wasn't for Randy Orton our new WWE Champion would be Sheamus. Or best of all when I hit my Red Arrow, you couldn't kick out!
Seth- Clearly I had you pegged wrong, you're not a superhero you're more like a mousekeeter. You had the chance to shut me up and, oh yeah, you failed. So twist yourself around, find your little cap and get the hell out of my ring.
Neville- Yeah yeah yeah yeah, we've heard you Seth, in fact we all know you love to go on and on and on and on and on and on and on.
Cesaro's music hits and he comes out with a mic as well.
Cesaro- Hey Seth, Neville is right you just go on and on and on and on. See the WWE Universe knows, you go on and on and on and on. Especially the Cesaro section is sick---
Cesaro gets BLASTED from behind by Kevin Owens. Owens throws Cesaro into the steel stairs and laughs. Meanwhile in the ring Seth used the distraction to attack Neville and hit the corner powerbomb.

We see Stephen Amell's storyline with Neville, Barrett, and Stardust from Raw. I'm not saying I called it, but Stephen Amell looked damn good on Raw.
We see a replay of Ryback returning on Raw and clotheslining the shoe off Miz.
Ryback is in the ring with a mic
Ryback- The Big Guy is back, I feel better than ever! A few months ago at Elimination Chamber I won this Intercontinental Championship. It was the proudest moment of my career, all the hardwork, dedication, blood, sweat and tears made it worth it. Just when things were headed my way, this happened. *They show a picture of the staph infection in his knee* That is a staph infection and quite frankly it can be deadly. It took me off my feet but it made a mistake, it didn't finish it. You know what I did, I pulled myself back up I Meathooked it, I shellshocked it, and I trailblazed my ass right to Portland! While I was home I saw a lot of people say the IC title is cursed. I listened to Miz and Big Show say the title should be stripped off me. Through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram I got all your well wishes and it motivated me to push forward. I'm back and hungrier than ever! At SummerSlam I am going to defend what is rightfully mine! Miz and Big Show, you better wake up! At SummerSlam it's feeding time!
DEH!! Portland...we're here!
Roman Reigns vs. Luke Harper
Harper- They try and tell you all human beings are inherently evil, something has to happen. When it does, it flips like a switch. But me, I'm a little different. I was born holding the devil's hand, what's your excuse.
Bray- He once was blind but I gave him sight. Hahaha. Tonight Roman, I'm afraid his eyes are set on you, but at SummerSlam it will be family vs. family. I will bring my brother, make sure you bring your lunatic. This is a moment we have been waiting for since---
Dean Ambrose's music cuts him off.

Backstage interviewer is with Sheamus. He says Randy Orton almost beat Seth Rollins, then Sheamus attempted to cash in, before Orton broke it up.
Sheamus- I'm in no mood for your questions. The WWE Universe is tired of the same old things. Rollins saying how tough he is, Orton hitting RKOs out of no where. They deserve to be entertained. On Monday I was going to give them what they wanted. A brighter future, a worthy champion, but Randy Orton ruined my moment. As World Champion I was going to usher in a new era of real men, of warrior. Orton knew he couldn't survive in the era. So Orton stopped it, like some sort of Terminator. Is that it Orton, you want to be Terminator?! Well, I'll be back. I'll Brogue kick through your chest until you're reduced to dust and erase your existence! Then it will be just me and Seth Rollins. A brighter future is just a Brogue Kick away...
