Hulk Hogan returned as the special guest GM of Smackdown tonight in the final Friday night show of 2014.

The Hulkster was on hand at the very start of the show as he was quickly confronted by Seth Rollins.

Rollins claimed that Hogan should leave the ring as it was now his but before he goes he should declare Rollins the undisputed future of the WWE.

Hogan refused and instead claimed that Dolph Ziggler who is in fact the future of the business, which brought the Show-off to the ring.

Ziggler asked Rollins to put his briefcase down and go one-on-one with the Intercontinental Champion, which brought out the Big Show.


Big Show claimed he was about to knock-out Hogan and Ziggler once he was in the ring, but then out came Roman Reigns.

Reigns told Big Show not to get into the ring unless he wanted another punch in the mouth, general manager Hogan then put all four into an epic tag team match later in the show.

Dolph Ziggler and Roman Reigns vs Seth Rollins and Big Show

Three of the brightest young stars in the WWE and Big Show gave the show a great climax as all four gave their all in the match.

Reigns and Ziggler got the win after the match broke down with Reigns spearing both Big Show and Rollins before getting the three count.

Kane vs Ryback

Ryback and Kane went head to head in a rematch from TLCS and Ryback looked more than a little impressive.

Halfway through the match, the Bulgarian Brute Rusev came to the ring to try and distract the Big Guy, when Rusev climbed onto the apron, Ryback knocked him right back down.

The Big Guy then delivered the meathook clothesline and shellshocked to Kane to get the win before facing off with Rusev after the match.

Ryback was holding his own before Kane got involved and made it a two-on-one ambush ending with Ryback passing out to the accolade.

After the match, backstage Hogan confronted Rusev and Lana and announcing that he would be defending the United States Championship against a mystery opponent.

Rusev vs Dean Ambrose

With Rusev out for his US Title defense, out came the lunatic fringe Dean Ambrose to try and reclaim the title that he has held for longer than anyone else.

Ambrose put in a good effort against the Bulgarian Brute and even broke several of Rusev's biggest moves.

When Ambrose began to mount some offense and forced Rusev out of the ring, he was attacked by Bray Wyatt.

The two fought all around the ring and Ambrose eventually got the Eater of Worlds on the backfoot and running for the hills as the Lunatic Fringe filled the ring with more and more steel chairs.

Jimmy Uso vs The Miz

One of the most personal issues in the WWE right now came to a head as the Miz took on Jimmy Uso.

With Damien Mizdow at ringside giving his usual performance, Jimmy Uso came away with the win despite the Miz pleading for mercy from Uso.

Adam Rose vs R Truth

Adam Rose and the exotic express came out to the ring minus a bunny came out to the ring and showed a renewed sense of aggression.

Rose got the win over Truth but stood motionless for a second or two after the win before he began smiling and went to dance with the rest of the Rosebuds.

Naomi vs Alicia Fox

Naomi continued to look impressive with the Miz watching backstage as she got a win over Alicia Fox using some high flying offense to get the win.
