WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: THE 'DATE' OF THE 'CENTURY', HULK HOGAN, BAYLEY VERSUS CARMELLA, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2020-02-14 21:58:00

We are back with a Goldberg video package.

We go to Hulk Hogan in Florida.  Michael congratulates Hogan for becoming a two time Hall of Famer.  Hogan says the nWo being acknowledged by the WWE universe is strong.  Hulkamania put the business on fire and the nWo took it to a different level.  Doing it in Tampa is 4 Life.  Cole asks Hogan about Goldberg's match with The Fiend and whether Goldberg has a chance.  Hogan says he has told people that he has been where you are now.  Hogan says he knows the power of Bill Goldberg but he has also felt the energy from The Fiend.  Hogan tells The Fiend he better try to survive.

We get an old school nWo tribute message paid by the FFH. 

Bray rips off his shirt and poses like Hogan.  Bray says hello to the Hulkster.  He has been following his advice.  He has been saying his prayers and taking his vitamins.  Now he has a title.  Huskus asks Bray what is he doing and Bray says he is talking about muscles, something Huskus doesn't know about.  Bray asks Huskus if he wants a piece of chocolate and Huskus eats it.  Bray says he hopes it isn't 'too sweet'.

Hogan says Bray is pretty entertaining.  When you get in the ring with Goldberg it is no joke.  Hogan wishes Bray luck.

Bray says he doesn't need luck, he has a fiend.  If you aren't careful Brother, there can always be room for one more.

Hogan thanks Cole for the interview and leaves.

Tucker is with Otis in the locker room and he has flowers for his date with Mandy.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Cesaro and Sami Zayn are in the ring and Sami has a ukulele and Cesaro has a cowbell.  Sami welcomes everyone to their protest concert to protest the lack of action for their cause against Elias and Braun Strowman.

Before Sami can strum, they are interrupted by Elias.  

Elias says he was told to come out to stop what Sami and Cesaro are doing.  Elias says you are trying to make your name on Elias.  

Sami tells Elias to shut up and they know who Elias is.  Who do you think you are to interrupt their protest concert.

Elias says he is staging a counter protest.

Sami says he would have his security ready to kick Elias out but they will let Elias in.

Sami says he wants Elias real close because the song is about him.

Sami tells Cesaro he needs less cowbell.  The crowd wants cowbell so Cesaro says adios to the cowbell.

Sami says if the people don't shut their mouths, the concert if over.  Sami asks the people if they think this is a joke.  Sami says the only joke is having Daniel and Henrik Sedin's numbers in the rafters.

Cesaro tries to attack Elias but Elias fights back.  Cesaro hits Elias from behind and then Strowman makes his way to the ring and Strowman knocks 'security' down and he chases Sami.  A member of security on his last day because he touched Strowman and Elias with a clothesline and then Elias and Strowman biel him onto other members of 'security'.

Naomi says she is sick of what Bayley is doing.  She demands a title match because Bayley has never beaten her.  Naomi says she is the next Smackdown Women's Champion.

We see Mandy waiting at 'Restaurant' for her 'date' with Otis.

We go to commercial.

We are back and in two week, so will John Cena.

We are told that Bayley will defend the Smackdown Women's Title in Riyadh.  Next week, we will find out who faces Bayley because Naomi faces Carmella.  Bill Goldberg will be in Phoenix next week for Smackdown.

We have a video package to show the courting process that led to tonight's 'date'.

We see Otis arrive at 'Restaurant' and he asks if a beautiful peach is there.  Otis is sent to his table and we see Mandy Rose at the table.  Someone taps Mandy on the shoulder and Mandy thinks it is Otis but it is Dolph Ziggler.  Otis sees Mandy with Dolph and Otis is heartbroken as he drops his flowers and leaves.

We go to commercial.

Miz says the Usos talked a big game last week.  Miz says the Usos are not here this week.  Miz says he has always been her.  Morrison says he has been here every week for the last month.  MIz says they were and they are the greatest tag team of the 21st Century.
