WWE Super Smackdown Live 12/16/14….Smackdown’s 800th Episode

It’s amazing Smackdown has a theme song to kick the show off, and Raw does not.  I don’t like that about Raw, but whatever.  We are live, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Tom Phillips, Michael Cole, and JBL welcome us to the show.

The “new and improved” Fandango is in the ring, and he will face Roman Reigns.

I don’t like Fandango’s chances here.

Fandango did get some offense, but yeah…Superman punch, and a spear.  Reigns is back, folks.

Tonight, Ryback will go one on one against Seth Rollins, but up next, Dean Ambrose.

Starting on Thursday, January 15th, Smackdown will move to Thursday.

Tomorrow night, Tribute to the Troops.  Sunday night, premiere of “Jingle All The Way 2”.

Video footage of TLC match between Ambrose and Wyatt this last Sunday.

“The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose is here.

Bray Wyatt said there was a special place in hell for the two of them, and that was at TLC.  Dean loved every second of it, because it feels good to just let the rage go.  But whether it was rage or karma, Dean lost.

But for the first time, he saw Bray was afraid, because he finally faced someone who didn’t care about what happens to him.  And he is feeling good to continue, so tomorrow night in a Bootcamp match, this fight continues.

Bray shows up on the screen.

He doesn’t understand the only reason Dean is still breathing, is because he enjoys inflicting pain just a little more than Ambrose.  Bray is a slave in his calling.  He can’t stop until he sees all of the cities crumble.  His hatred for Dean fuels Bray, HE IS THE BATTLEFIELD!!  And in the end, it will all burn down.

Next, 6-man tag of The Uso’s and Erick Rowan Vs The Miz, Mizdow, and Luke Harper.

Tomorrow night, at 8:00 WWE Tribute to the Troops.  Florida Georgia Line will be there too.

Rowan and The Uso’s win when Rowan hits a Top Rope elbow, pinning The Miz.  Miz was upset Mizdow kept mimicking Harper, which was hilarious.

Tonight, Ryback Vs Seth Rollins, and next we will see what happened at Raw, with Brock Lesnar and Chris Jericho.

Backstage, Naomi is getting ready for her Divas Title match against Nikki Bella.  Jimmy Uso apologized for acting up earlier tonight.  Miz got the best of him, and he doesn’t trust him.  Naomi tells him she is focused on beating Nikki tonight, and she needs to do it alone.  Jimmy tells her he will be backstage, pulling for her.

Raw Rebound with Brock Lesnar taking out Chris Jericho.

Ryback Vs Seth Rollins is up now.

Wake up, it’s feeding time….but Rusev lays out Ryback before the match could start.  Rusev crush!!

Now Seth wants to know what is going on here.  Without The Authority, this place is a madhouse.  And after everything Rollins has been through the last two days, can you believe this?

At TLC, Rollins was robbed of his biggest victory, thanks to Roman Reigns.  And last night, after dealing with Cena and Chris Jericho, he defeated Cena by himself inside a steel cage.  He is here tonight on Smackdown, with bruised ribs, ready to compete, but now this?  Wait a second, this works out in Rollins’ favor.  After all, after the last two nights, who deserves a night off more than Rollins?  Joey, get the limo out.

I’m here to show the world….

“The Showoff” Dolph Ziggler intervenes.  Ziggler knows that Rollins loves to orchestrate plans, after last night and tonight just now with “The Big Guy” Ryback.  But The Authority are out of power because of two men.  Sting, and Ziggy himself.

After all, Ziggler pinned Rollins, so he certainly deserves a match.  So how about “The Architect” goes one on one against Ziggler.

Rollins wants to know what Ziggler has done to warrant the match.

Ziggler suggests Rollins is afraid of Ziggler.  He understands that.

Rollins will grant Ziggler that match, because after all, it’s just Ziggler.  he will grant two gifts.  One to Ziggler to accept his challenge.  The second gift will be to himself fo giving Ziggler a curbstomp.

Ziggler will get his gear on, and steal the show, because that is what’s best for business.

Ziggler Vs Rollins tonight.

But next, Divas Title match with Naomi Vs Nikki Bella.

Soon, The Ascension will rise.

Naomi Vs Nikki Bella is set now.

Nikki Bella wins when The Miz came out to “cheer” for Naomi.  This brings out Jimmy Uso to take Miz out, and this distracts Naomi for a second, and Nikki pins her.

Naomi just glares at her husband, switching gears later tonight, Ziggler Vs Rollins.

Adam Rose Vs Kane is set now.  Former TNA wrestler Taelor Hendricks and current ROH wrestler Jimmy Jacobs are “Rosebuds” it seems.

Match is over faster than I can say Pete Rose is the bunny.  Kane hits a Chokeslam, after Adam was celebrating over a hip toss with an Alex Wright style dance.  “Das Wunderkind” style, baby.

The bunny was wearing a neckbrace, after last night’s incident and hits another Tombstone on Bunny.  One of the ears fell off, that bastard Kane killed the bunny.

Earlier tonight, Ryback was attacked by Rusev.

Ziggler Vs Rollins is next.

Next Monday night, someone will have a “Ho-Ho Hogan” Christmas.

Tomorrow night, we will have WWE Tribute to the Troops.  Always fun to see that.  Dean Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt in a Bootcamp Match.

Oh boy, Gold and Stardust hates the holidays.

Renee Young is with Seth Rollins.

Can he elaborate why Seth orchestrated the attacks on Jericho and Cena.

Seth makes sure that John Cena alone can bring back The Authority.  And until he does that, he needs to make sure to cause chaos for Cena, and even affect his WWE World Title match.  And if that means teaming up with Heyman and Lesnar, then so be it.  As for Jericho?  Chris waltzed in and thought he was in charge?  The Authority are in charge, and until they come back, Rollins will make life miserable for everyone.  And it starts with Ziggler.

Ziggler Vs Rollins, our main event is up now.

Ziggler picks up the win with a Zig Zag.  J & J Security did everything they could to help Seth, but the ref Mike Chiotta finally saw them, and threw them out of ringside, then Ziggler hit a quick Zig Zag for the win.

Ziggler celebrates on the top of the ramp to end the show.

Tomorrow night, WWE Week continues with Tribute to the Troops.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a fun show tonight, maybe it was due to the live portion, but it felt like a big show.  The one thing I cringe about though is it seems like The Authority are eventually coming back, but the question is how?  After Royal Rumble?  So we will see more cringe-worthy moments as “Ho-Ho Hogan”?

Oh boy.

But tonight, a solid main event, and I liked the first half hour, everything else just felt sort of there.

What were your thoughts on the show?  I will talk to you for tomorrow night’s Tribute to the Troops.
