    WWE taped the January 22, 2014 episode of SmackDown from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. Here are full WWE SmackDown spoilers:

    Dark match

    * Sin Cara defeat Fandango

    WWE SmackDown

    * Michael Cole and Byron Saxton came out to a decent pop. Jerry Lawler got a huge pop.

    * Daniel Bryan kicks off the show and introduces Ryback, Dolph Ziggler and Erick Rowan. The “fired” WWE Superstars return to a big pop. Rowan spoke and got the “what?” treatment. They’re interrupted by The Authority, minus Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. It’s announced that the three Superstars can get into the Royal Rumble main event if they win their matches tonight – Ziggler vs. Bad News Barrett, Ryback vs. Rusev and Rowan vs. Luke Harper.

    * Ziggler vs. Barrett in a non-title match is up first. Ziggler gets the win with a Zig Zag and earns his spot in the Royal Rumble match.

    * Renee Young interviewed Roman Reigns about the Royal Rumble match. One correspondent said it actually wasn’t awful and another said Reigns is looking more confident on the mic.

    * Ryback defeated Rusev by count out after what was said to be a good match. Ryback earns his spot in the Rumble main event. After the match, Rusev attacked and beat on Ryback but Ryback turned it around. Rusev avoided a Shellshocked attempt and retreated to the back.

    * Brie Bella defeated Naomi in a short match. Nikki Bella was at ringside while Paige and Natalya were on commentary.

    * Luke Harper defeated Erick Rowan after a missed top rope splash. Rowan does not qualify for the Royal Rumble.

    * Backstage segment with The Miz and Damien Sandow, who are announced for the Rumble. There’s dissension between the two. Miz talks down at Sandow for the X-Pac segment on RAW.

    * Kane vs. Daniel Bryan in a No DQ match is up next. Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble come out with Kane. Kane ended up tapping out but the referee didn’t call it for some reason. Mercury and Noble interfere. Bryan cleans house but kicks out of a chokeslam. Bryan comes back and gets the win, keeping his spot in the Royal Rumble. Big Show comes out and attacks Bryan. This leads to a huge brawl with the entire locker room coming out. The Superstars left standing after that brawl were Ziggler, Reigns, Bryan, Ryback, Big Show, Kane and Dean Ambrose. SmackDown ends with just the babyfaces standing tall.

  2. Sounds like an alright episode on paper, I hope they flashback to the X-Pacdow moment during the backstage segment.
  3. Sheamus didn't return last night? Shame.

    But anyways, the episode doesn't seem bad at all. It looks okay, just like last week's episode... and all the typical/10, redundant BS is being kept to a minimum. Kewl, I'll be watching.
  4. Unfortunately not, he came out with a statement that basically said he has no definite date of return however he's itching to fight! I imagine he will be present for that Rumble match on Sunday or if he's not in it himself he will make his return felt in some way on Sunday no matter what.

  5. Well then. There goes my hope again for Rowan. Glad everybody else is in the rumble, seems like a good episode.
  6. Oh, cool.
  7. Ah, Kane main eventing in 2015.
  8. Fuckin' A, right? :dawg:
  9. I don't even get mad at it anymore. It's so absurd it's awesome now lol
  10. Nah, there's no reason to get mad, just laugh it out loud.
  11. Aw man no Big Red in the rumble? That's a bloody shame.

  12. Yeah, mate. There'd better be a good reason behind it.

    Well, then I guess this 'Big Red' could replace him.

  13. I was surprised a bit regarding Rowan, but I guess it would have seemed hammier if all four anti authority guys won their matches. Rowan had to be the sacrificial lamb, so to speak. It sort of sucks because I like the guy for some odd reason I haven't been able to figure out yet.
  14. Knowing Rowan loss I still think he'll make an impact on Royal Rumble in some way.. I don't see him being freshly re-hired and not fucking up someone in some way.
  15. Nothing against Rowan but I knew immediately he was not making it in the Rumble. Great chemistry with Harper last night though.

    I saw improvement out of both Ryback and Rusev last night. Lo and behold Rusev is actually learning to be a heel. He'll get there. Ryback was bringing a ton of smash mouth offense. Countout finish made sense.

    Loved the finish to the show with the big Rumble. Good way to sell the show to anyone who hasn't gotten off their ass to buy the Network.

    I'm happy to see Bryan doesn't do the top rope dropkick. That was a big part of his neck problems.
  16. I've yet to watch the episode, but reading the comments you guys have posted, I can make out it wasn't a bad episode at all. I trust your judgment.

    As far as the Bryan thing goes... Yeah, not only that move, but that stupid little Diving Headbutt, too.
  17. Sounds like Reigns might be fucking up his WM chances with his mic work issues.


    Haven't seen it yet, but the article says:

  18. ^How reliable is the Inquistr as a wrestling news site?

    This particular article while bringing up valid points from this week's show does seem more like a Bleacher Report style opinion piece.

    Not to mention that Vince has personally written Roman's promos since he returned from injury. He doesn't need to take over that duty, he already has.
  19. It's not a big deal. Just further proof of Reigns incompetence
