[Q1] The Smackdown intro cut into the arena and Tom Phillips welcomed us to the arena in Dallas. Daniel Bryan's music hit and he headed to the ring. He left last week's show bleeding, and I had said it my Smackdown Audio show last week that I couldn't see a serious cut on his forehead. WWE made an ass out of me by uploading a video that showed Bryan getting stitches, but they are apparently already out as his cut was just butterflied shut.

Bryan said winning at WrestleMania was one of the highlights of his career, and the best way to honor the Intercontinental Championship by defending it against anyone who would challenge him. Bryan moved on and spoke about his title defense against Dolph Ziggler, and the subsequent attack by Sheamus. He ran down Sheamus as looking stupid and said he didn't even bother to challenge him before kicking him in the face. He then moved on to Smackdown last week and spoke about how he got KO'ed by Wade Barrett.

Barrett's music hit, and he spoke about the bull hammer. Sheamus' music hit and said he Brogue Kicked him just for fun, because he could. Sheamus said he tolerates Barrett because he's not a munchkin and he detests munchkins. They said they would give him a European Arsekicking that he deserves.

As they got to the ring, Dolph Ziggler interrupted and said Sheamus looks like Captain Jack Sparrow and Carrot Top had a baby no one liked, and they are only so tall because their heads are up each others arses. If they wanted a fight, they could have one right now. Big Show interrupted and said he was the greatest giant in the history of the business and if they thought they could destroy the munchkins without him they are sorely mistaken. Roman Reigns music hit and he headed to the ring to even the odds. The babyfaces cleared the heels and sent them packing up the ramp.

The announce team plugged MizTV for later and also plugged Neville's first appearance on Smackdown. Natalya and The Tag Champs were shown walking towards the ring backstage...[c]

The announce team said the obvious main event was made during the break. Natty and Kidd and Cesaro were already down at ringside. The New Day made their entrance and got booed. Big E asked the crowd why they chant New Day Sucks. He asked them to get on their feet and clap, but the crowd just kept chanting that they sucked. Big E said they were trying to bring positivity to their lives, but they were ruining their new day. Big E told the crowd they've got to learn to like them and love them, because they were trying to bring about a New Day...

[Q2] 1. New Day (Kofi and Big E) vs. Kidd and Cesaro: Kofi and Kidd started the match, and Kidd won the early chain wrestling battle and tagged in Cesaro. Cesaro kept up the offense for a bit until Kofi low bridged him to the outside. Big E then assisted Kofi with a launch to the outside that saw him land on both Kidd and Cesaro...[c]

Cesaro held Big E in a chin lock and made a tag out to Kidd. Tyson came off the top but got caught for a belly to belly from Big E. Kidd managed to tag out to Cesaro, who prevented the tag from Big E and hit an impressive dead lift into a suplex on Big E. More quick tags from Kidd and Cesaro, as they continued to isolate Big E in their corner. Cesaro knocked Kofi off the apron, and BIg E charged into the corner but ate the post.

Cesaro then picked up Kofi and swing him, and Kidd stopped him with a drop kick. Cesaro charged into the corner and Big E caught him in a uranage. Kofi got the hot tag and hit a boom drop on Cesaro. Kidd took a cheap shot on Kofi, and Big E tried to get in the ring. While the ref attended to Big E, Cesaro hit a big uppercut on Kofi. Tyson followed up with his twisting neckbreaker finisher for the win.

Kidd and Cesaro defeated New Day at 12:34.

[Q3] A video package was shown that went through the Authority's gloating from Monday and the crowning of a new number one contender from Raw. The announce crew plugged Seth Rollins vs. Randy Orton for Extreme Rules. They then plugged the free month for the WWE Network. Neville is next...[c]

Curtis Axel was in the ring and said last week the road to Axtreme Rules his a road block, and he asked for a rematch to make things right. He then asked Neville WHATCHA GONNA DO. Neville then made his entrance.

2. Neville vs. Curtis Axel: Neville went fast paced right away and hit extremely fast paced offence He did a flying forearm and then dumped Axel to the outside and splashed him. He then hit a body slam near the corner and hit Red Arrow to get the win.

Neville defeated Curtis Axel at 2:12.

Neville celebrated his win in the ring. Backstage, Renee Young interviewed Alicia Fox, Cameron and Natalya. She asked whether they thought they had manipulated Kane into making a divas battle royal for a title shot. They spoke briefly about give divas a chance, and it devolved into a brawl between Natty and Alicia with Cameron playing referee...[c]

[Q4] Natalya made her entrance. Alicia Fox was already in the ring and Cameron will be the ref. Imagine that.

3. Natalya vs. Alicia Fox: Cameron had to separate the brawl early on as they rolled underneath the ropes. The same thing happened again 30 seconds later. Nattie hit a low drop kick and covered for a two count. Alicia Fox hit a big boot in the corner, which the corner came made clear missed by a country mile. You could make out ambient conversation in the crowd as Alicia applied a chin lock. It lasted way too long. Natalya escaped and hit the ropes, she then reversed a tilt-a-whirl attempt by Alicia into a cross body block. After some brief back and forth, Nattie applied the sharpshooter and Alicia tapped.

Natalya defeated Alicia Fox at 3:49.

After the match, Cameron hit a DDT on both women and called for her mirror so she could celebrate on the top rope with it. An Erick Rowan video package was shown that focused on on him being an outcast. They plugged Wyatt vs. Rowan for next...[c]

[Q5] Bray Wyatt made his ring entrance. Wyatt said he remembered the first time that he saw Erick Rowan. He was lost and cast out by a society that could never understand him. They looked at him as if he were a monster, a plague that would destroy all that was real. Wyatt said he didn't see his flaws, he saw his possibilities. He found Rowan dirty playing in the mud, and showed him what it was liked to be loved and have a family. He fixed him like he would fix a broken toy, and when it came time to set him free, he had to let him see that evil is real. He said it was the crowd's fault that Rowan is broken again, and tonight he had to teach him one last lesson.

He had to show him that you can trust no one, and that evil exists inside of us all. Tonight, he would destroy Erick Rowan, someone he loved and called him brother. If he could do that to him, what could he do to you? Behold the new face of fear. Erick Rowan then made his ring entrance.

4. Erick Rowan vs. Bray Wyatt: They brawled to start the match until Rowan hit a big shoulder tackle that sent Wyatt spilling to ringside. Wyatt came back in the ring fired up, but Rowan also showed good aggression and took Wyatt down in the corner. He charged at him after backing up across the ring and Wyatt sent him into the post. Wyatt then sent him off the apron into the ringside barricade...[c]

Rowan got his knees up when Wyatt attempted a running Senton, and followed up with a big shoulder block. He continued to pick up steam with some clotheslines and a big boot for a near fall. Rowan then climbed up top, but Wyatt rolled out of the ring. Rowan attempted to run around the ring for a clothesline, but Wyatt took him out with one instead. Wyatt hit a running senton on the outside and put Rowan back in the ring.

After some back and forth, both men were down. Wyatt popped up with his crab walk and then hit Sister Abigail for the pinfall.

Bray Wyatt defeated Erick Rowan at 10:39.

After the match, Wyatt cradled Rowan's head and looked up at the lights and smiled. The Miz was shown backstage as he headed towards the stage...[c]

[Q6] A video package was shown that highlighted Miz vs. Mizdow from Raw. A Marine 4 poster was shown on the Titan Tron. Miz welcomed everyone to Miz TV and plugged the crap out of his movie. He then introduced a Trailer. Seeing Summer Rae awkwardly hold a submachine gun never gets old. Miz talked about the film getting rave reviews from...someone, and Summer Rae interrupted him.

Summer said it was "our" movie, and Miz told her she can speak when spoken to. Summer insisted that she was his "co-star". Miz said she was a featured extra and she was only on the cover of the movie because he allowed it. He made her a star just like Damien Mizdow. Summer brought up the Andre the Giant Battle Royal. Miz accused the crowd of making MIzdow believe he's something that he isn't.

Miz brought up Damien Sandow being fired by the WWE twice, and said he was on his way out for a third time before Miz plucked him out of the dumpster and gave him an opportunity. Mizdow's interrupted and made his way to the ring. Miz told him he was sure he had a big speech, but he needed to get his life and his career on track. Miz said he could help him with that, and he was willing to forgive him if he said two small words "I'm Sorry". If he did that, everything would go back to the way it was.

Miz held out his hand for a handshake and an apology. Miz then repeated himself and said he could make MIzdow a star, as long as he shook his hand and apologized. Miz said the crowd would froget about him unless he was with Miz. Mizdow agonized over it and shook his hand. They shook for a long time and Mizdow finally said he was sorry....he didn't do this sooner. He then popped the Miz in the jaw and tossed one of his set chairs at him. Mizdow then grabbed Summer Rae and planted a kiss on her, as you do.

[Q7] A video package that highlighted WWE's media presence for WrestleMania was shown. The announce team plugged the main event for next...[c]

Video was shown of the conclusion of last week's Smackdown. Wade Barrett made his entrace for the main event first. They've got time to kill so we're getting full entrances for everyone. Big Show was next, followed by Sheamus. Then we got Reigns, Ziggler, and Bryan...[c]

[Q8] 6. Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, and Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus, Wade Barrett, and Big Show: The heels started the match by isolating Dolph Ziggler in their corner. Dolph hit a low dropkick to Show's knee and hit a big jumping DDT to get a two count. Dolph tried to hit a splash in the corner and Show swatted him out of the air like a bug. Barrett tagged in and hit winds of change for the first near fall of the match. Sheamus then tagged in and hit a big elbow and then stepped on Ziggler's head against the bottom rope.

Sheamus jawed with Ziggler and the crowd, which cause Ziggler to slap him and make a big tag out to Daniel Bryan. He hit his normal comeback series and then collided mid ring with Sheamus. Bryan shrugged it off and then backdropped Sheamus to the outside. Bryan followed up with a tope. He tossed Sheamus back into the ring, but ate a big boot from Barrett as he climbed back in...[c]

Big Show had Bryan in a bear hug, and then turned it into a body slam. He followed up with a big elbow drop for a near fall. Barrett then tagged in and rained punches on Bryan's kidneys. He then kicked Bryan in the gut and applied a chin lock. Bryan escaped eventually, but Big Show tagged in and stepped on him to prevent the tag. Show knocked Ziggler into the barricade and then taunted the crowd and setup for a chokeslam. Bryan reversed into a Yes Lock, but Show powered out after a moment.

Sheamus took some cheap shots at ringside and then tossed Bryan back in the ring. Sheamus then set him up on the top rope, where Bryan fought him off and went for a cross body. Sheamus caught him, but Bryan reversed position and hit a DDT. Both men made tags and Roman Reigns unleashed on Wade Barrett. He hit a Superman Punch on Big Show and another on Wade Barrett. Sheamus broke up a pin. Ziggler hit him with a superkick and Bryan took out BIg Show at ringside. Barrett then lined up for an elbow, but Reigns him with a spear instead and got the pin.

Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, and Dolph Ziggler defeated Big Show, Wade Barrett, and Sheamus at 14:48.

The faces celebrated as the show went off the air.
