The show began with Daniel Bryan, saying that his Intercontinental Championship would mean even more if he were to defend it. Bad News Barrett and Sheamus then threatened Bryan. The crowd chanted, “You look stupid” towards Sheamus. Dolph Ziggler then emerged to save the day. But Big Show then came out and said that his victory in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal meant that he had “eclipsed” Andre the Giant in history, and proves that he had surpassed anything that Andre the Giant had ever been. This set up for a six man Tag Team match at the Main Event.

The Fallout Show, after Wrestlemania, opened with (Good Evening Ladies and Gentleman, my name is) Paul Heyman advocating for the FORMER reigning, defending, undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lensar. He said that Lesnar almost respects Roman Reigns, but that Seth Rollins, the CURRENT reigning, defending . . . is “slimy.” Heyman threatened litigation, but stated that his client was against it because “all lawyers are scumbags.” A rematch of Rollins and Lesnar was set to be the Main Event.

Smackdown started with Dolph Ziggler walking out with the new white and gold (or is it black and blue?) Intercontinental Belt. Overactor Ziggler said that winning the Intercontinental Belt “changed his life.” Jerry the King Lawler called Bad News Barret another Kanye West. Luke Harper then attacked Ziggler and stopped BNB from taking back his title. A brawl ensued between Ziggler, Barrett, Harper, and Dean Ambrose. R-Truth took advantage of the distraction, slithered in the ring, and stole the Belt while no one was looking – no one but the cameras, audience, and announcers, that is.

The show began with Daniel Bryan and his Yes! chant. His first words were, “No. No. No.” Eventually, the crowd chanted, “No, No, No.” Bad News Barrett entered the ring, lamenting the fact that Dean Ambrose stole his Intercontinental Belt. Dean Ambrose entered with the belt and attacked BNB. Ambrose kept the stolen Belt. Continue reading THE SMACK ON SMACKDOWN – February 26, 2015 (Atlanta, GA)
Sadly, they began RAW by giving the microphone to Roman Reigns. Reigns taunted Bryan, who taunted Reigns, and then Stephanie McMahon taunted both. She criticized Bryan for stuffing Kane into a casket during a Casket Match, in which the rules required that the winner stuff the loser into a casket because it’s a Casket Match. The Authority made the rules, and then criticized Bryan for following them. Continue reading RAW BRAWDCAST, February 9, 2015 (Columbus, Ohio)
The Miz led off the first segment with Miz TV. It was abruptly canceled with a Superman punch from Roman Reigns.
In a tag team match, Ryback and Ziggler teamed up against Gold and Stardust. Unfortunately, they entered to Ziggler’s entrance music, rather than Ryback’s. And Ziggler wore a “Little Guy” Belt. Stardust took an early exit into the locker room, leaving Goldust to be pinned by Ryback. Continue reading THE SMACK ON SMACKDOWN – February 5, 2015
Fans booed The Authority’s mention of The Royal Rumble, again. The “announcement that would shake the WWE Universe to its core” is that Roman Reigns won The Royal Rumble, but he’s not necessarily going to face Brock Lesnar for the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania. Daniel Bryan will face Rollins tonight; the winner of that match faces Roman Reigns at WWE Fast Lane (available on the WWE Network for the low, low, price of . . .) The winner of that match faces Lesnar for the Championship at Wrestlemania.
