Kane tries to recruit more members to the Authority on Smackdown

Published Add your comment

Smackdown came from Albany, New York this week in the WWE's last show before their UK tour.

It was a big night on Smackdown as Kane was on hand to do some recruiting for Team Authority and we got a view of classic Bray Wyatt.

Kane made use of the steel cage left hanging above the ring as he announced that he and Dolph Ziggler would be competing in the structure for the main event.

Ziggler got the win in what was a good match with a great ending as Ziggler was eventually left hanging on the door.

Ziggler continued to defy the authority by stepping into the cage with Kane but this time he emerged victorious.


WWE legend Christian returned and hosted the Peep Show with his special guest Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose got onto the topic of Bray Wyatt and as he promised that as much as Wyatt will try to get into his head, he won't succeed, the Eater of Worlds appeared.

Wyatt making reference to Ambrose's father apparently being in prison and never contacting Ambrose drove the lunatic fringe over the edge.

As he went to confront Wyatt, he did his vanishing act and eventually appeared right behind Ambrose and screamed run down his ear before disappearing once again.

The original reason the steel cage was above the ring was to hold the Usos and Gold and Stardust as they battled for the tag team championships.

Gold and Stardust got the win after an incredible series of events where Goldust was suplexed off the top rope, then received the splash from the other Uso before Stardust somehow got him into a pinning scenario for the win.

As Kane went onto his recruitment drive, he stressed that there was one superstar that he really wanted to scout, out came Cesaro who was told that it wasn't him and he would face the man Kane wants to see.

Ryback made his way to the ring and in a very physical performance, got the win over Cesaro after delivering shell shocked to the Swiss Superman.

After the match however Ryback pumped up the crowd and as Kane came in to congratulate him he left the ring leaving the question of whether or not he saw Kane wide open.

Adam Rose took on R-Truth in a somewhat strange match as there were several comical moments with the bunny and Truth dancing at different points.

Truth got the win after the bunny distracted Rose and that led to Rose taking his frustrations out on his furry friend.

Natalya took on Summer Rae with Tyson Kidd on commentary, eventually Kidd moved to the ring and tried to shout encouragement to Natalya, only to distract her and allow Summer to take advantage and get the win.
