** SPOILERS ** WWE SmackDown Results For This Friday
Pictured: Daniel Bryan | Send Us Your Photo
There are a lot of empty seats. The upper deck hard cam side is completely empty.
WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund is in the lobby taking pictures for WWE at a photobooth. The guys next to me said it took him about 6 attempts to realize that his Sharpie had a cap on it before signing the picture. When I walked past hime, he was smiling for a picture and screamed something really loud that made no sense. The guy is nuts.
Dark Matches for Total Divas:
* Alicia Fox defeated Naomi with a roll up. The Total Divas logo was up on the titantron. Pretty good match, crowd was into Naomi, although she botched a couple of spots. There was a big "We Want Ryder" chant.
* Aksana vs. Cameron was next. The Total Divas logo was on the titantron for this match as well. Aksana won with an awkwardly performed slam.
* SmackDown opens with MizTV with Randy Orton and Team Hell No. The crowd is nuts for Bryan. Kane and Bryan get into a fight over Bryan being the weakest link. Bryan is action heelish. Kane gets frustrated and walks away. The Miz asks Bryan if Team Hell No if they broke up, and it sounded like he said "yes," but it was hard to make out. Teddy Long came out and made Daniel Bryan & Randy Orton vs. Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns for later tonight.
* Chris Jericho vs. Curtis Axel is up next. Paul Heyman cut a promo as Axel made his way to the ring. Heyman is on commentary for this match. At the end of the match, CM Punk's music hit and the place exploded. He wasn't there, it was just a distraction, which allowed Axel to rollup Jericho for the win. After the replays aired, Jericho ran back into the ring and attacked Axel, and then hit him with a codebreaker.
From @royalroundtable: My section is right next to backstage. There are props under the curtain. Also, Matt Striker is backstage talking with Big O, who is wearing a suit.
The Wyatt Family promo aired. A backstage segment was shown with Tons of Funk saying that the Wyatt Family is weird and that WWE is in big trouble when these guys show up.
A backstage segment with Ryback and Kane aired. Kane defended Daniel Bryan and Ryback challenged Kane to a match tonight, which Kane accepted.
* Heath Slater vs. Alberto Del Rio is next. The match never got started as 3MB attacked Del Rio and Ricardo before te bell. They brawled, and Del Rio got Slater to tap out and Ricardo splashed Jinder Mahal and Drew Mcintyre outside the ring. They then celebrated. While they celebrated, Dolph Ziggler appeared on the Titantron and said that he is cleared to wrestle and will be at RAW on Monday.
It was announced that RAW will return to Long Island on Monday, November 25th. The pre-sale begins this Friday, June 7th with code WWERAW.
* Kane defeated Ryback via disqualification after Ryback powerbombed Kane through a table.
