WWE SmackDown Results: Roman Reigns Vs. The Miz, Randy Orton Brawls With RVD, More
Please spread word of our viewing party and complete results via Facebook and Twitter.
Tonight's show begins with WWE's signature pyro and ballyhoo, followed by a SummerSlam recap package. WWE's "apex predator," Randy Orton makes his way to the ring and tells the audience that he's never been called a loser before and that Roman's victory at SummerSlam doesn't mean it's over between them. He's got his focus now and Reigns better recognize.
Fresh from the break, we get a lengthy recap of the mammoth hardcore bout between Rollins and Ambrose on Monday Night. Swagger comes out to battle Rollins and it's bell time…
Seth Rollins vs. Jack Swagger
Swagger gets the jump on Rollins and takes him down quickly. The All-American American from The Real Americans gesticulates and gets Rollins to come back in and Seth eventually gains the upper hand, looking pretty dominant as they head into the next break.
Swagger gets his second wind and bounces Rollins into the corner, following up with a big drop and a near fall. Rollins fights him off and bounds at Swagger off the ropes but Swagger counters with the patriot lock. Rollins escapes and both guys end up on the floor outside. As Rollins climbs back in, Swagger gets the patriot lock on again but they're outside so it doesn't matter one bit. After a tussle, Swagger gets chucked into the audience and takes most of the ten count to get back in but he's met with a huge curb stomp and rolls outside again. This time, he can't answer the count and Rollins is declared the winner.
Result: Seth Rollins wins by count-out.
Bo Dallas comes out and tells Jack that it's not all bad and that there's still room for improvement but Swagger seems less than appreciative. Commercial sign.
Following the commercial, we get a brief recap of Nikki slapping Brie and then we switch to The Miz who's talking to Corporate Kane backstage. Miz is still ticked about losing the IC title but Kane books him into another match with Reigns later tonight.
Rusev and Lana are heading out next so we're sure to hear some pro-Putin propaganda…after these messages.
Rusev vs. Sin Cara
Rusev beats on Sin Cara in the opening seconds and the luchadore struggles to mount any kind of offense. He eventually hits Rusev with an aerial maneuver but can't follow up and Rusev completes the squash with a clutch hold, prompting Sin Cara to tap.
Lana hits the mic and praises Putin and then looks to the tron but it ain't Vladimir looking back—it's Mark Henry. Henry jacks his jaw and then heads for the ring. Rusev and Lana retreat and both sides talk copious amounts of smack to round out the segment.
Backstage, Rob Van Dam talks about facing Randy Orton later tonight. He says Randy needs to "chill the hell out" but before he can say R-V-D, Orton knocks him out. Time for a break.
