What Happened After WWE SmackDown Went Off The Air Last Night?

Credit: Addisen West & Prowrestling.net

As SmackDown ended with AJ Styles crotched on the ropes, John Cena entered to a huge pop! He ran his ropes, shaking AJ and his phenomenal ones around, which the crowd ate up. Cena’s partner was Roman Reigns, who received that usual Texas BooParty.

Seth Rollins, who was dressed back in gray, entered to the biggest pop of the night as AJ Styles’ tag team partner. AJ, who was still crotched, talked with referee Charles Robinson as Rollins entered. Rollins got another pop for jumping off the rope that AJ was on, again crotching him. Bray Wyatt’s music sounded and the fireflies took over. AJ Styles scampered to the back as Wyatt took his spot as Rollin’s partner.

John Cena and Roman Reigns defeated Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt. Wyatt began the match versus Cena. Dueling “Let’s go Cena/Cena Sucks” chants took over the match as Bray and Cena took turns trading shoulder blocks. Rollins entered and he and Cena began pandering to the crowd, with Rollins easily getting the most cheers. Cena hit four of the Five Moves of Doom, but Rollins reversed and hit a superkick on a downed Cena. Back came Bray with a hoe train in the corner for a two count.

Bray played heel to the crowd, giving Cena enough time to recover, only for Rollins to attack him and knock Roman off the ring. This time Rollins was booed heavily. Rollins performed a blockbuster on Cena for another solid two count. The heels continued to work over Cena while another dueling Cena chant erupted.

Bray missed a senton on Cena and then made the hot tag to Roman, who began clotheslining everyone, especially Rollins. Rollins reversed a Superman punch into another one. He also hit a Superman punch on Bray into a Cena AA as Roman speared Rollins for the three. There were heavy cheers for both Cena and Roman, even as Roman played to the crowd. There was also a heavy pop for Cena as his music closed the show.

Lilian Garcia Discusses Her Most Embarrassing Moments In WWE, Challenges

Former WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia recently spoke with Naluda, here are the highlights…

On Embarrassing Moments: Within 2 weeks of each other, during my entrance to the ring, one week my shoe strap broke where I had to take off my shoes and go barefoot to the ring, and the next one in London, I tripped over the pyro cannons that were not supposed to be there. Scary then, but sure is funny now!!

On The Challenges of The Job: RULES!!! When there were big matches, the rules, a page long, would be handed to me that day, sometimes right before the match. I had to memorize every word exactly as they were written, wow….what pressure!! The pressure came from me because I always wanted to do my best and make the match introductions extremely special!

On The Secret to Her Longevity in WWE: Be dependable, care about your job, work hard, and above all be grateful for the opportunity! Know that working at WWE is a team effort. The less ego you have, the more you will enjoy the ride. And above all, have fun!!

Jay Lethal: ‘I’d Give My TNA Run A B+’, Talks ‘Black Machismo’ & More

Jay Lethal recently appeared on The Ross Report, here are the highlights…

On His TNA Run: “Well, the grade I would give it, I don’t know if anybody would be shocked by this grade, but I would give it a B+, to be honest. Even though there [were] a few things that I could have shook my finger at, you could do that at any job even if it’s your dream job. And the reason I get a B+ from me is I had so many great moments there. I made so many great friends. And I feel like the Black Machismo character is really what put Jay Lethal on the wrestling map. No doubt and I’m not foolish enough to doubt that. I don’t mind it. I’m well aware of that. They also gave me one of the greatest moments of my life when I got to step into the ring on pay-per-view with Ric Flair, a man that I idolized. I’m so honored for that. Yeah, I really believe what I did in that company is what put me on the map. So yeah, they would get a B+. I don’t have many negative things to say about them either, which is cool for them except for the fact that they let me go, but anybody would be saddened by that.”

On The Birth of Black Machismo: “I was a huge fan of his. Even before I got into the [professional] wrestling business, I watched him and listened to him and heard him so much, I guess I just naturally developed this ability to sound like him and I would do it in the locker rooms, from time to time, whenever there was a dull moment, and Kevin Nash actually heard me do it and he convinced me ‘you have to do that on television. You have to. They’re not doing anything with you right now, so it’s not even like it would be that hard to do.’ And I didn’t want to do it because I didn’t want anybody to think I was making fun of Savage because I really was a huge fan of his. And Kevin said, ‘if anything, Jay, you’d be helping to keep his name out there because nobody is talking about him right now.’ And that’s the way he got me to see it, so I did it on television, Jeff Jarrett fell in love with it, I fell in love with it, and it actually got a longer run than any of us expected it would have.”

On His Mount Rushmore of Wrestling: “Randy Savage and Ric Flair, they’re definitely up there. Definitely.” Lethal continued, “the other two, I believe it could be, as a popular answer, but I really believe that Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior have to be up there even though I didn’t idolize either one those [wrestlers]. But from watching back, you either had to be a Hulk Hogan fan or you were an Ultimate Warrior fan, just like you were either a Bret Hart fan or you were a Shawn Michaels fan.”

The Miz & Maryse Speak Out – Will Maryse Return To The Ring?, The Locker-Room, More

The Miz and Maryse spoke with Channel Guide Magazine for a new interview. Some highlights are below:

Maryse on getting to work together: “It’s great. I just wish he wouldn’t listen to Howard Stern on the rides at night. Besides that, it’s great. I get to see my husband, who is the best in the world.”

Miz on getting to work together: “She is annoyed with me going, ‘Hey now!’ every five seconds. It’s amazing for me to have her and be around her. It’s one thing to FaceTime and to call each other on the phone. But to have her, to hold her, to touch her, to kiss her; there is nothing better to have that on the road.”

Miz on whether or not we will see Maryse return to the ring: “The No. 1 question she is always asked is when can we see her back in the ring. Time will tell. We will see what happens. She is doing so much right now. She just had a movie come out on SyFy called Isle of the Dead trending worldwide. It was really well-received. Then we have the video game, with WWE 2K17 coming out in October. There is so much happening right now. We’ll see what happens.”

Miz on defying the odds and becoming a veteran in the WWE locker room: “Miz — a veteran in WWE? Did you think that would happen? I didn’t. I almost believed everyone saying I’d be gone in three months. I said, ‘You know what? I’m going to try my hardest and do whatever I possibly can to stay here.’ And here I am 10 years later, trying to bring these young guys up and show them the ropes.”
