WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Airing This Week


World Heavyweight Champion John Cena kicks off SmackDown and talks about winning the belt at Hell In a Cell and how he's back on SmackDown. He's interrupted by Zeb Colter, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro. Damien Sandow comes out and calls Cena a hypocrite, running him down. WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes and Goldust are out next. It looks like we've got Cena, Cody and Goldust vs. Sandow, Cesaro and Swagger for tonight's main event.


There's a pre-match promo with The Shield where Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins end up staring at Dean Ambrose and teasing tension like on RAW.


Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose vs. The Usos is up next. They tease more tension in The Shield. Big E Langston comes out and stands at ringside for The Usos. The Usos end up getting the win clean by pinfall. After the match, Big E has a staredown with The Shield, mainly Roman Reigns, until they retreat through the crowd.


There's a segment with Dolph Ziggler trying to sell WWE Shop merchandise.


Erick Rowan and Luke Harper vs. Darren Young and Titus O'Neil is up next. Harper and Rowan dominate and manhandle Young early on. Wyatts get the win. After the match, Bray Wyatt comes in the ring and hits Young with a nasty looking Sister Abigail.


MizTV with The Miz is up next. New WWE Champion Randy Orton is the special guest. Right in the middle of a question, Orton lays The Miz out with a RKO and smiles.


The Bella Twins and Natalya defeated AJ Lee, Tamina Snuka and Alicia Fox when Natalya made AJ tap to the Sharpshooter.


They air a Survivor Series promo.


Another taped interview with Triple H talking about Big Show's lawsuit. Triple H says Big Show is now banned from WWE for life.


John Cena, Cody Rhodes and Goldust vs. Damien Sandow, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro is up next. Cody and Goldust were acting hesitant to interact with Cena. This was described as one of the best multi-man matches in some time. Cena gets the win for his team by pinning Swagger!

Absolutely brilliant episode of SD.


I think this was an important period in the Shields history as it I think set Roman Reigns on his was to singles success. His look towards Dean Ambrose during the show opening promo was telling and his actions after the tag team match were interesting. Another good performance from the Shield and a little peak into their future. The Uso's also impressed me again, they are starting to win me over.


Randy/Miz was embarrassing for poor old Miz, what has be done. His career in WWE is surely over now. The RKO was great.


The Real Americans, Sandow, Cena promo/stare-down was great stuff. All I want now is a full on Sandow/Cena feud, it has the potential to be something special. 6 man was absolutely fantastic, all 6 men entered very good performances which made the main event thrilling. Loved the Cena/Cesaro moment, also loved how they kept Cesaro looking strong against Cena. Really good show again

Also forgot to say that the spear Cena hit on the floor was wicked.


It's at the point now where I'm seriously considering going through Cena's entire body of work with a fine tooth comb and making a nerd list all of the new concepts and different moves and little things that he adds to every single match that he has. Because "Cena always has the same match" is a talking point that exists, and not only is it debateable, but by this point it is patently f*cking absurd.
