The first Smackdown since the controversial return of the Authority and the final Friday night Smackdown was ultimately dominated by one man.

There were reunions, championship matches and chances for revenge throughout the night and it was a more positive show than Monday's RAW.

The man who dominated all on the night however was the man who often tends to dominate Smackdown these days, Roman Reigns.

The show opened however with Seth Rollins coming to the ring to continue to mock John Cena after he saw his former team-mates fired on Monday night.

Rollins was having fun by showing highlights from Monday's show until he was confronted by his former Shield brother Roman Reigns.


The two eventually came to blows with Reigns eliminating Rollins and J&J Security from the ring and up the ramp.

They would be joined by Big Show and Kane at the stage with Kane revealing that if Reigns can find a partner, they will face Big Show and Rollins the in the main event.

Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose vs Big Show and Seth Rollins

When everyone was in the ring and we were trying to guess who would team with Reigns, few would of guessed that we were about to see a Shield reunion.

The Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose came to the ring and lined up against his former Shield brother Seth Rollins.

The match itself was a great all round match but Reigns was the man who dominated in the end.

Reigns took out all members of the Authority in the match and got the win after Ambrose jumped off the top rope to take everyone out and Reigns speared Mr Money in the Bank.

The Usos vs Damien Mizdow and the Miz vs Star and Goldust (Tag Team Championship)

In quite a lengthy match, three of the biggest tag teams went against each other for the tag team championships.

Each team took turns in holding a period of domination in the match and each had opportunities to win it.

The Usos eventually retained their titles after each member of each team took turns to take someone out but the brothers were able to get the win off the patented high flying finishing move.

Sin Cara vs Bad News Barrett

The new Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett came to the ring and mocked former champion Dolph Ziggler by offering him a rematch there and then - despite the fact that Ziggler was fired on Monday.

Out came Sin Cara to take on Barrett in a non title match that would showcase what Barrett was all about.

A relatively short match saw Sin Cara pull off the shock win but pay the price as Barrett violently attacked him after the match.

Big E vs Adam Rose

In a repeat of the match from Monday, Big E took on Adam Rose but with Cesaro and Tyson Kidd watching from the announcers table this time and unable to attack the New Day.

Big E got the win quite easily as would have been expected and the entire New Day tried to lure the newest team into the ring but they just walked away.

Alicia Fox vs Naomi

Alicia Fox got the win over Naomi in a very short match that saw Alicia get the pin from nowhere and use the ropes in order to gain the win.

The Ascension vs local athletes.

Yet again the Ascension took on a team of local athletes and looked more than dominant as one of the strangest starts to a WWE career continues.
