WWE Friday Night Smackdown 11/28/14…Who Is Running This Show?

After an awful Raw, will WWE improve with Smackdown?  And who is in charge?

Smackdown is now.

We see Sting’s appearance from this past Sunday at Survivor Series.

Hey, Smackdown has a theme song, Raw does not anymore.

Tom Phillips wishes us a Happy Thanksgiving weekend, and we see Miz TV kicking things off, with The Miz and Mizdow.

Miz reminds us that at Survivor Series, he became the new World Tag Team champion, and raises his Tag Title.  Mizdow raises his, and is cheered.

Miz introduces us to The Big Show.

Last Monday night, Big Show issued a challenge to anyone from the back to say anything to him to his face, and Erick Rowan answers the calls.

Miz understands what Big Show did, and said the only mistake he made was joining Team Cena.

Big Show stated that people want to judge him, Erick Rowan doesn’t understand what Big Show has gone through.

Daniel Bryan shows up.

Daniel gets a nice warm welcome from the fans.

Big Show said Monday night if someone had something to say, come out and say something.  Daniel Bryan is someone, and he has something to say.

He asks if everyone is ready for Daniel Bryan Smackdown.  He is running the show tonight, and has some great matches.

We will have The Ryback Vs Seth Rollins.

Do we want to see a championship match tonight?  Tonight, we will have an Intercontinental Title match with Luke Harper Vs Dolph Ziggler.

The Miz is not impressed.  Daniel couldn’t steal Miz’s spotlight, because Mizdow is already doing that.

Big Show does not want to hear what Daniel Bryan has to plan, this is about Big Show and not Daniel Bryan Smackdown.

But this about Big Show.  He said Monday night that if Rusev wouldn’t say the pledge of allegiance, he’d have to defend his United States Title in a battle royal.

Well, he didn’t do the pledge of allegiance, so we will have a 20-man battle royal now.

Included in this match will be The Miz, Mizdow, The Big Show, and this man….Erick Rowan.

Rusev retains the United States Title, last eliminating Swagger, although his feet did touch the floor, but the refs did not see it.  This match also featured The Miz being eliminated, and Mizdow eliminated himself.  Very funny.

The “Ravishing Russian” Lana is impressed.

Kane is still trying to sell merchandise.  Santino wants a T-shirt, but Kane is not amused.

Tom Phillips, JBL, and Michael Cole welcome us to the show.

Bray Wyatt is here.

Footage from last Monday night when Bray gets some revenge on Dean Ambrose, after Sunday night.

2 weeks from Sunday night, in Cleveland at TLC, we have a TLC match.

As Dean climbed up the ladder Sunday night, he looked like an angel descending to heaven.  And for a brief moment, Bray had a smile on his face.  But he told Dean the two of them do not belong in heaven, they belong somewhere else.  But as those chairs were crashing onto his face, the pan felt euphoric.  And for a moment, Bray thought he failed Dean, but Bray failed himself.  But understand this, Bray molds the demons, but Dean thinks he has Bray figured out, but the lord works in mysterious ways, and what is his is always his.  So tonight, they celebrate, because they are almost at the point of no return.  And TLC will change him….Tables, Ladder, and Chairs…oh my.  He is going to teach Dean a lesson, and he will finally be able to smile, because he will finally get Dean right back where he belongs, in the dirt where he belongs, with the other insects.


Tonight, IC Title match, Dolph Ziggler Vs Luke Harper.

The New Day is dawning, tonight.

Emma Vs Nikki Bella.

Nikki wins with the Rack Attack.

I guess Brie and Nikki are still together, even though the 30 day policy is over.

Nikki is on the mic.  It’s time everyone knows the real truth about AJ Lee.  We know her sob story, but Nikki has worked harder.  She now wants to know what a real Divas Champ is supposed to look like.  AJ will always be that little pathetic, manipulating girl from New Jersey.

AJ comes running, and Nikki ducks out.

Kane’s merchandise stand has been crashed through a table.

Feed Me More….

Ryback is in action, Vs Seth Rollins is now.

Rollins DQ’d when Kane brings a chair into the ring, but Ryback catches him in time.  The numbers game catches up, however and now Rollins hands Kane the chair, and walks off when Kane whales the chair on Ryback many times.

The New Day is next.

The New Day are set to face Slater Gator and Curtis Axel.

Power, speed, and brains were the combination here.  The New Day wins, with a combination Big Ending and flying forearm, by Xavier Woods.

Tonight, Dolph Ziggler Vs Luke Harper, for the IC Title.

Santino Marella is now pushing merchandise, on WWEshopzone.com.

Raw Rebound, featuring the end of The Authority.

This Monday, the return of Cyber Monday.

Renee Young is with Daniel Bryan.

He has had a blast running both Raw and Smackdown and he has missed this.  But before he relinquish duties, he will schedule a match for TLC.  Kane Vs Ryback, in a chairs match.

One last question, will Daniel be back soon?

Yes!!  Yes!!  Yes!!

Main event time, Ziggler Vs Harper, for the IC Title.

Before the match, Gold and Stardust had a message.  Darkness is here, cosmic key is gone.  Darkness falls on The New Day.

Ziggler Vs Harper, now.

Ziggler wins by countout here, but does not win the IC Title.  Harper lays out Ziggler after the match, and this makes me think we will see a ladder match between these two at TLC.

Harper tries to nail Ziggler with the IC Title, but Dolph ducks and nails a Zig Zag, to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Well, we had Daniel Bryan return, and The New Day debut, together.  Daniel made sure we had a 20-man battle royal, since Rusev did not recite The Pledge of Allegiance.

For that reason alone, this show was a million times better than Raw Monday night.

This coming Monday, we will see Cyber Monday, so stay tuned for that.  I will talk to you then.
