The Shield Summit
-Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns want to hear answers from Seth Rollins. Out comes Rollins, who enters from the side of the entrance. Seth Rollins said he walked out because it was the perfect time to. He says the war is not with the Wyatt's, but it is with them. Seth Rollins said he sacrificed himself for the greater good so they can get on the same page. Ambrose fires back and says it was not a sacrifice by walking off. He says Ambrose and Reigns are on the same page for the first time in months, where Reigns and Ambrose are seeing eye to eye. Rollins says they all can go their separate ways, but what if being fine isn't enough?
Rollins says that nobody beats them and says to take this place back. Ambrose asks if that is it and pushes Rollins on the mat. Reigns throws down Ambrose and stands between the two. Rollins slaps Ambrose in the face and says he feels a lot better. Rollins says that Ambrose needs to get it out of his system. He fires back and down goes Rollins. Rollins puts his fist in the middle and asks if they are done here. Reigns puts his fist in the middle and Ambrose follows suit. The Shield unites once again.
What a dramatic and intense segment, carried by Seth Rollins. Reigns did not need to do much but be in the middle. The roller coaster continues with these three guys, but what will be the ultimate break-up? I loved this segment because it did exactly what it needed to. It spotlighted all three guys' strengths and really enforced how dominant they have been, together.
Daniel Bryan and Batista
Batista comes out and talks about Daniel Bryan. He says things went wrong in the WWE when they let fans in the locker room. He calls Daniel Bryan a "fan" and says Daniel Bryan should buy a ticket to watch him. Bryan says the skinny jeans are too tight and he isn't thinking. Daniel Bryan attacks Batista, but Kane's music hits. Batista hits a clothesline onto Bryan and Kane gets in the ring. Out comes Big Show to make the save. This sets up our main event for the night.
Daniel Bryan and The Big Show defeated Kane and Batista. WWE Smackdown Reaction ends with this big tag team main event. Kane and Bryan start things off in the ring. Big Show gets a tag and chops down Kane. He continues with a head butt and a splash into the corner. Kane dropkicks the giant in the knee and Batista gets into the ring. Big Show counters with a double suplex, that did not look too pretty. Daniel Bryan picks up the pace and hits a suicide dive onto both men on the outside. After a commercial break, Kane tries a superplex but is stopped by Bryan. He hits missle dropkick onto Kane. Batista finally gets the tag and clotheslines Bryan multiple times. Batista is in full control and hits elbows into his face. The Animal calls for the Batista Bomb. Daniel Bryan hits a kick to his head and Big Show gets the tag. He runs over Kane and hits a running shoulder block. Bryan gets the tag and hits a flying head butt for a two count. Big Show blasts Batista to the outside and Daniel Bryan finishes Kane off when Big Show KO Punches Kane.
This was a really solid match with strong booking decisions. Big Show gets in the ring and helps out Daniel Bryan, but it was all about Daniel Bryan. It always needs to be focused around Daniel Bryan. I would have loved to see Triple H in the corner of Kane and Batista, but I can understand why he was not. The match is not official, so there is going to be a few shows that we do not see Triple H. I expect him to be involved and make this match official on Raw Monday night.
WWE Smackdown Score: 6.5/10
