WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: DID EVA MARIE WRESTLE?, OPPONENTS ARE TAG TEAM PARTNERS, IS HEATH SLATER EMPLOYED?, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-08-09 21:57:00

Randy Orton arrives at the arena and he is told of his match against Alberto Del Rio and then he is asked about how is he staying focused for Brock Lesnar.  Randy says he has known Brock for fifteen years and he points out that he is the legend killer so he does not have to worry about that.  It only takes one RKO to get to Viperville.

Alberto asks Randy if he is kidding.  Viperville sounds like a joke for something that would be at Disneyland.

Randy says he will give Alberto a VIP ticket and he tells him it is a bumpy ride.

Alberto tells Randy we will see if he can do it with a broken arm.

We are in Bakersfield, California and your announcers are Mauro Ranallo, John Layfield, and David Otunga.

Bray Wyatt makes his way to the ring with Erick Rowan.

We see what happened last week when Bray Wyatt had a chance to get into the WWE title match at SummerSlam.

Bray says he would like to make something very clear.  Last week, he did not fall to Dolph Ziggler.  He was a victim.  Dolph Ziggler was desperate and in his desperation came deception.  Dolph ran his face into the steel because he knew it was the only way.  Then things went black for him.  Bray says everything was taken from him again.  Dolph, what you don't understand is that he is a god.  No matter how hard you try or what you do, you can never kill a god.  If you don't believe him, you can ask your friend Dean Ambrose.  He knows Bray well.  Bray says Dean would tell you his teeth are very sharp and they will cut through you like knifes.

What you fail to realize is that this is his show now.  They are not puppets in a corporate war.  This is Bray Wyatt against the whole damn world.

Dean Ambrose's music plays and he comes to the ring. 

Dean says this is a new era.  Bray Wyatt is a victim.  Bray is spouting off some bibilcal mumbo jumbo and Bray is not the Eater of Worlds, he is a big baby.  He tells Bray to get off the podium because Smackdown does not belong to you, it belongs to the people.  It also belongs to the WWE Champion.

Bray tells Dean to come into the ring and whisper into his ear if he wants him off his podium.

Dean says Bray likes nothing more than to run into the ring and go into a two on one beat down.  Dean says he is smart enough to know a bad deal.  The more you stand out here and run your mouth and get under his skin, it makes him want to come to the ring and shove those fancy words down your throat.

Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the ring and he stands next to Dean and then he goes after Rowan but Wyatt hits Dolph from behind and they work over Dolph.  Dean joins in the situation and Rowan and Wyatt work over Dean.  Dean sends Rowan over the top rope and Wyatt sets for Sister Abigail but he takes too long.  Dolph accidentally gives Dean a super kick and then Wyatt gives Dolph Sister Abigail.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler are face to face in the back.  Dean says he did not need any help and he knows that was not an accident.

Dolph says it had nothing to do with Dean.

Dean says he owes Dolph one.

Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon come out and tell them to calm down.  Daniel says they will be in a tag match tonight against Erick Rowan and Bray Wyatt. 

Shane tells them to channel their anger because Wyatt and Rowan can cause problems.

Match Number Two:  Becky Lynch versus Eva Marie (with extremely overblown introduction)

Before the bell rings, Eva's top comes off but she covers up before we see anything.  Eva gets a towel from the referee and she leaves the ring.

The referee tells the ring announcer to mention that due to wardrobe malfunction, no match will happen.

Becky is interviewed and she says it is frustrating.  Every time she steps in the ring, she is prepared to fight.  Eva might have some sorry excuses for not wanting to wrestle.  Becky says she is not going to the back two weeks in a row without fighting.  Becky makes a challenge to anyone in the back.

Alexa Bliss comes out and she tells Becky to be careful what she wishes for because she might just get it.  Alexa says she is here to bring bliss to Smackdown.  She says there is no better way to make her debut than to beat Smackdown's number one female draft pick.
