WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: THE BACKLASH MAIN EVENT IS SET, HOW WILL WE DETERMINE OUR TWO NEW CHAMPIONS?, WHAT ABOUT HEATH?

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-08-23 22:00:00

We take a look back at the match between Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar from Summerslam.

Randy Orton makes his way to the ring.

Randy says he bets people did not expect to see him here tonight, but here he is.  He says if you couldn't tell by the ten staples holding his head together, he was in one hell of a fight on Sunday night against Brock Lesnar.  Randy says he knew what he was getting into, but he would have rather been carted out unconscious than what happened.  Shane thought by intervening he did the right thing, but their paths will cross again.

Bray Wyatt's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Bray asks Randy how is his head.  He says he saw what Brock did to him and he saw the look in your eyes change.  It went blank.  There is nothing like laying there with you head busted open to remember that you are just a man.  You are a great man, but just a man.  A man who hurts, a man who suffers.  A man who dies.

Bray says he is not just a man.  He is a god.  A God can never die.  You will find all about it . . . in time.

The lights go off and back and and Bray is no longer in his rocking chair at ringside.

The lights go out again.

Shane McMahon is talking to a referee and he is asked about Brock Lesnar.  He says Brock crossed the line.  He is asked if Stephanie will take the matter seriously.  Shane doubts she will take it seriously.  He says he heard Stephanie fined Brock $500.   Shane is asked if that is fair.  Shane says this thing with him and Brock is far from over.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Heath Slater is offering Arn Anderson a spot as his tag team partner. 

Arn says there is only one Ric Flair and you aren't him.  Arn says he was considered a tag team specialist.  

Heath says that Arn is his last hope.

Arn realizes he wasn't the first choice and he says no.

Rhyno asks if a tag team champion will be able to make payments on an above ground pool.   Heath has a partner.
