- Aksana stretches in the ring. Kaitlyn makes her entrance. We see footage of her and Big E & AJ from Monday. Kaitlyn reacts to the footage and attacks Aksana with a double leg. They fight to the floor. Kaitlyn gets her back in the ring as the ref tries to get her off. Kaitlyn strikes the ref and goes back at Aksana on the floor. The ref goes to grab her again and she slaps him in the face, hard. Aksana escapes up the ramp and Kaitlyn is distraught on the mat.
- We go to a Cena/Ryback promo video.
- Back from a break as JBL has 2 bacon burgers in front of him as Cole adds up the strips of bacon he has. I'm totally speechless right now.
Wade Barrett cuts an in-ring promo to Heyman about it not making sense to risk getting hurt and he wants to wait until Sunday. Miz comes out and cuts a "Really" promo. He asks the crowd if they want to see Wade and Axel fight. They chant, "Fight"
Wade Barrett vs. Curtis Axel
Wade and Curtis go back and forth and the action spills to the floor in front of Miz. Axel charges forward but Barrett ducks and Axel clocks Miz. Back in the ring, Axel hits a swinging neckbreaker to Wade and gets the pin.
Winner by pin: Curtis Axel
Miz gives Axel a Skull-Crushing Finale in the ring and he stands tall in the ring.
- JBL and Cole discuss things and the burgers have disappeared. Cole sends to another Wyatt Family vignette. It is new and different from the one from earlier and Monday.
- The Shield makes their entrance through the stands. Cole reminds us that SmackDown is brought to us by Hardee's Thickburger.
Team Hell No & Randy Orton vs. The Shield
We return from a commercial to the crowd going nuts with "YES" chants as Bryan and company are in the ring already. Team Hell No & Orton take turns on Rollins and then Ambrose. Ambrose overtakes Bryan in Shield's corner and Rollins and Reigns take turns on him. Ambrose tags back in for more offense on Bryan.
Bryan fights back and they trade knees. Orton tags in and explodes on The Shield. He goes for a double DDT in the ropes but he gets outnumbered. Ambrose gets 2 on Orton.
Back from a break as Ambrose gets 2 on Orton. Reigns comes in and takes over. Orton hits a neckbreaker to Reigns and sidesteps him in the corner; Reigns goes shoulder-first into the post. Kane tags in and he hits a flurry of offense on Dean. Kane goes up top and flies but nobody is home. Ambrose dropkicks Kane back to his corner and Bryan tags himself in. Bryan leaps off the top with a front dropkick to Ambrose.
Rollins springs in but gets caught in mid-air with a dropkick from Bryan. Bryan takes out Reigns with a dropkick and flies through the ropes onto Rollins and Reigns. The crowd is absolutely on fire! Bryan continues with his flurry and gets 2 on Rollins. Bryan goes up top and fights off Ambrose. He flies off but Rollins moves and gets 2.
Kane comes in and chokeslams Dean over the top. Reigns clothesline Kane to the floor. Orton goes for and RKO on Reigns but Roman spears him. Kane chokeslams Ambrose into the timekeepers area and sends Rollins there too. Randy hits Rollins with an RKO in mid-air. Bryan makes Rollins tap with a crossface.
Winners by pin: Team Hell No & Randy Orton
Lilian Garcia makes it a point to announce that The Shield have been defeated for the first time in 6-man action. The crowd in Greensboro blows the roof off the place as Bryan, Kane, and Orton celebrate.
Instant Reaction: Daniel Bryan and Seth Rollins are pure magic in the ring. Ambrose is a close second. It's been a long time since someone was as organically over as Daniel Bryan. Dare I say the last times were with Austin and Rock? Let's hope they don't mess it up with the rumored Bryan heel turn. But if done right, it can be compelling. Maybe Bryan swerves us and joins The Shield instead of Orton?
