We continue our Empty Arena marathon with Friday Night Smackdown with more full match replays from years gone by…
Michael Cole introduces the show, he’s going mostly solo tonight. He introduces Mojo Rowley who in turn introduces The Gronk. Gronk comes out to a LMFAO ‘Party Rock’ rip off song and dances around the arena. Soon enough, Baron Corbin interupts The Gronk, then Elias sings over everybody as Corbin complains. Gronk ‘suggests’ that Elias should face Corbin at WrestleMania.
Daniel Bryan & Drew Gulak Vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro.
Wrestling! On a wrestling show! Team Wrestle takes on the American Dragons in a wrestling classic. Sami Zayn was on commentary. Gulak fights off Cesaro and tags in Bryan. They roll up Cesaro while Gulak fends off Nakamura.
Winners: Daniel Bryan & Drew Gulak
Cut to backstage where Drew & Daniel are warming-down, Team Wrestle interupt as we set up Nakamura Vs. Gulak next week. Bryan gets a title match if Gulak can win.
Michael Cole introduces Paige on the video screen via Skype. Sasha & Bayley interupt her and they have some badly scripted back and forth, before Paige annouces that Bayley defends her Smackdown Championship and Wrestlemania against; Dana Brooke, Lacey Evans, Tamina, Naomi and Sasha Banks. Sasha gives a sly grin as we go to replay of Bray Wyatt Vs John Cena from WrestleMania 30.
We return from the long replay, we lost about 45 minutes of the show. Miz & Morrison come out and try to set up a Wrestlemania match but they have no challengers so… They mock the 3 teams who are likely to challenge them, New Day, Heavy Machinery & The Usos. HM interupt M&M and we move to a wrestling match!
Heavy Machinery Vs. Miz & Morrison
Dolph Ziggler interupts half way through the match. Cole probes him to talk about Mandy Rose. Whilst Otis is about to hit the catapiller on Miz & Morrison, Ziggler shows some personal photos of himself and Mandy Rose being cute together. Otis snaps, goes after Dolph but Miz & Morrison interfere and get the brunt of the action.
Otis stares at the large screen one more time, turns around and runs Miz & Morrison through a barricade. Otis grabs a chair as Tucker tries to talk him out of it… he can’t stop and takes a chair to the Tag Team Champions causing the DQ.
Miz & Morrison by Disqualification.
Roman and Goldberg have their contract signing which goes without any hostilities… Nah. Roman calls Goldberg a little bitch. Goldberg responds by saying he’s been destorying steel doors for years with his head. The contract was signed, they stare down and we fade to black.
