WWE SmackDown Results: Reigns Vs. Miz, Ambrose Vs. Cesaro, Ziggler In Action, More
Please spread word of our viewing party and complete results via Facebook and Twitter.
The big show opens with the word "Awesome!" and The Miz emerges for an episode of Miz TV. In the ring, Miz says he'll retain the IC title at SummerSlam and he says he wants to give back to WWE by mentoring some of the younger talent. With that, Miz welcomes Roman Reigns out to the ring. Reigns enters through the crowd and henkers down in a director's chair with Miz. Miz reminds everyone that Reigns is his mom's favorite WWE Superstar. He taunts Reigns a little about Roman's match with Orton at SummerSlam. The ex-Shield member tires quickly of his host's antics and cracks him a good one. Miz tumbles out of the ring and heads up the ramp as Reigns tells the crowd he respects Orton's accomplishments but assures everyone he'll win this weekend.
After the break, we get some viewing stats from WWE and then Ambrose makes his way to the ring area. WWE shares a brief recap of the most recent developments in Dean's feud with Rollins and Cesaro arrives on the scene for a match.
Dean Ambrose vs. Cesaro
Steady back and forth is the order for the first minute or two with a blend of pugalistics and mat work. Cesaro starts to gather steam but Ambrose checks him to the floor and follows up with a dive outside. Back in the ring, Cesaro tosses Dean into the steel post and then hits a suplex on the floor outside. Commercial sign.
The show returns and Cesaro is firmly in control. He gets a little too cocky, though, and Ambrose ends up landing some damaging blows and Cesaro ends up outside again where he's met with a suicide dive. Cesaro stumbles back in and Ambrose lands a DDT from the top turnbuckle, followed by a near fall. Cesaro bounces back and hits a huge closethline and gets his own near fall. The fans get behind Ambrose but Cesaro shows a lot of power and almost gets a pinfall. Ambrose stays in the match, though, and each man earns another near-fall. The fans chant "This is awesome!" and Ambrose surprises Cesaro with "Dirty Deeds" and gets the three-count. Cole calls him "a cockroach that won't go away."
Result: Ambrose beats Cesaro by pinfall.
After the dust settles, Rollins comes out and sets the stage for his lumberjack match with Ambrose at SummerSlam. He says he's better than the Lunatic Fringe and he'll show everyone he's the future at SummerSlam. He holds the gold briefcase up heading into the break. Looks like Ziggler is up next.
Following the commercials, Corporate Kane and Miz talk backstage. Miz is convalescing from his brush with Reigns and Kane breaks it to Miz that he'll face Reigns in a match later tonight.
Heath Slater and Titus O'Neil head out to the ring next and we get a recap of their post-show antics at Hogan's birthday party on Raw. O'Neil faces Ziggler who heads out as the guys in the truck roll tape from Ziggler's scrap with Miz on Monday.
