WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: A BIG NIGHT FOR THE NEWEST MEMBER OF THE SMACKDOWN ROSTER AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2018-12-18 22:00:00

We are back and it is time to take a look at the new faces on the roster.  We see Lars Sullivan, Lacey Evans, Heavy Machinery, Nikki Cross, and EC3.

The Usos make their way to the ring.  

Jimmy says no matter how much things change around here, Jey says it remains the same that the Usos run Smackdown.  Jimmy says they did not win, but they were not the team that got pinned.  Jey wants the Bar to come to the ring.

Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson interrupt and make their way onto the stage.

Karl says it is the Usos, the New Day, and the Bar week after week.  They are great teams having great matches, but last week he watched a rap battle while the Good Brothers have not been on Smackdown since August.  Luke mentions that is four months that one of the greatest teams of the decade have been on the sidelines.  It is time to clean things up.

Jimmy says they are not the reason you have fallen through the cracks.  You need to step up or step on.  Jey says they better turn around if they don't want to be part of this.

Daniel Bryan has something to say before our main event.  

Daniel says he killed the Yes Movement and on Sunday he destroyed the House that AJ Styles built.  Daniel says he is not about destruction, he is about creation.  Creation of something better.  He is here to create a brave new world.  Daniel says you won't like it because you fear change.  All of you continue to lead these lives of vacuous consumption even if you are destroying the very planet that give you life. 

The people of Fresno, California are the guiltiest of all.  These people are proud of themselves.  They probably do not know the facts but Fresno is number one in pollution in the state of California.  Daniel shames everyone for that behavior.  Daniel says Isaac Asimov once wrote that self education is the best type of education.  That might work for him and Isaac, but you would not know wisdom if it was pumped with GMOs and handed to you through a drive through window.  Do not try self education because you will fail.  

You have failed already.  You have someone to show you the way.  You have someone to show you how to live and here he is.  Your WWE Champion, the new Daniel Bryan.
