WWE Smackdown TV Taping

Randy Orton started the show by rambling about respect, then Seth Rollins came out for his match...

1. Seth Rollins beat Jack Swagger via count out. Rollins hit the Curb Stomp on the ring apron, which led to the count out. A good match to open the show with good back and forth action...

Bo Dallas insulted Jack Swagger as Swagger was being tended to by the medical staff...

2. Rusev (w/Lana) defeated Sin Cara in 1:49. There was a giant pop when Sin Cara came out. Ruev won using the Accolade. Mark Henry came out. Lana led Rusev to the back...

Rob Van Dam cut a promo and spoke about his match until he was attacked from behind by Randy Orton...

3. Randy Orton fought Rob Van Dam to an apparent no-contest. There was roughly two minutes of action. Orton kept beating on RVD outside the ring for the finish. He threw him back inside the ring, grabbed a chair, and sat down next to the fallen RVD. Orton stood up and RKO'd Van Dam onto the chair and walked to the back. The beating lasted about five minutes.

Footage of the Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton program was shown, so it looks like it's going to continue...

4. Natalya beat Paige in a non-title match in 2:46. A.J. Lee came out and took the belt to the top of the ramp. Paige got it back and ran back to the ring. Natalya caught Paige in the Sharpshooter for the win...

5. Goldust and Stardust defeated Luke Harper and Erick Rowan in 8:20. Goldust rolled up a distracted Harper for the win. Harper's shirt was torn during the match, meaning he might actually have to get a new one.

6. Roman Reigns beat The Miz. Reigns won in a little over a minute. Randy Orton came out and caused a distraction, but Reigns hit the spear for the win. Post match, Orton entered the ring and the two brawled for about four minutes with Orton bringing in a chair. Reigns fought back and hit the Superman punch to end the taping...

After the taping, John Cena's music and he received the biggest pop of the night. He spoke for a second and then the Wyatt Family's music started. The Family came out with Bray and they headed to the ring. Reigns rescued Cena.

Erik writes that it was a nice ending to an entertaining card. Goldust was probably the most entertaining of the night but Cena got by far the biggest pop.
