The Shield reunites and takes on the Authority- Smackdown review 4th July

Published Add your comment

Smackdown aired on America's birthday and gave off many fireworks to celebrate the 4th of July in an episode with a lot of significance.

The show opened with Seth Rollins coming to the ring only to be interrupted by the ever present face of Dean Ambrose, and it only picked up from there.

Later on in the show, Roman Reigns would have an interview when asked about the main event he claimed he will do nothing to jeopardise his WWE World Heavyweight Championship opportunity. 

With the announcement of an epic main event between Randy Orton and Ambrose, we knew we would get something special to finish the night, and we did.

This feud between Ambrose and the authority is getting very heated and I like the rest of the WWE Universe can't wait for Rollins and Ambrose to get their hands on each other.

In the aftermath of RAW, many people were talking about the return of Chris Jericho but more importantly, the actions of Bray Wyatt.

For those who missed it, While Y2J was doing his customary "RAW is Jericho" line, the Wyatts interrupted and proceeded to beat down Jericho.

Wyatt as always made a fantastic appearance and I don't think anyone was gutted to see the Miz eat a codebreaker.

It resulted in a match being announced for RAW on Monday which will see Jericho return to the ring against the Miz.

There was yet another face off between Lana and Rusev and the Real Americans, but not before Damian Sandow could impersonate another of the nation's beloved characters.

The whole segment was memorable really for Zeb Colter's one liner about vodka which honestly had me in hysterics.

In a heavyweight clash which didn't involve Rusev, Big E was supposed to take on Cesaro in a match.

The match never started though and instead the two just fought each other until eventually referees were holding back Big E and Paul Heyman was forcing his client back to the dressing room.

Sheamus hosted his 4th of July challenge and put the US Title up against Alberto Del Rio, a match the Celtic Warrior would go on to win.

AJ Lee made her first 'scheduled' return to action and defeated Eva Marie, after the match former Divas champions Paige entered the right and shook Le's hand while clapping her victory.

Bo Dallas went 12-BO after he dedicated the match to 'little Daniel', a reference to the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan.

After the match he had an altercation with El Torito which included him body slamming the little bull and receiving a set of horns to his midsection.

Everyones favourite freaks cut a frankly, hilarious yet disturbing promo as Goldust and Stardust made the WWE Universe feel weird, as always.
