WWE Smackdown came live tonight from the Rabobank arena in Bakersfield, California as we are inching closer to the Summerslam PPV. Now, the blockbuster match at the PPV between Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar took a whole new turn with both the featured superstars trespassing on their opponents’ shows, last week.
The Viper invaded on Raw to deliver an RKO to the beast whereas Brock Lesnar made his presence felt on the blue brand by returning the favor with an F-5 to Randy Orton. So, without further due, The WWE Raw General Manager, Mick Foley has invited the blue brand’s GM Daniel Bryan to sort things out. Though, there was nothing sorted out between the two brands last night.
The Viper seemed ready to take the challenge of the Essence of Excellence in a match later the night on Smackdown.
Though, the show kicked off with the new face of fear, Bray Wyatt continuing his demand to be fulfilled. He claimed that Smackdown is his show from now on. Ambrose showed up in the ramp to claim that he is the champion and hence it’s his show. While it looked like it is going to be two-on-one scenario against Ambrose, Ziggler came out to help the champion by attacking Rowan and Wyatt. Though, by chance, he mistimed a superkick on Ambrose. Wyatt hit the Sister Abigail on him to lay down both in the ring.
The main event saw the champion and the challenger squaring off against the Wyatt family. With tensions running between the both of them, it was questioned how much they can co-exist. But, in the end, they overcame the new face of fear with a tremendous counter-attack. Ziggler picked up the pinfall with a superkick to Eric Rowan while Ambrose neutralized Bray Wyatt. After the main event, Ambrose connected with the Dirty Deeds to Ziggler to stand tall while Smackdown Live went off the air.
