Jack Swagger defeated Cesaro
WWE Smackdown Reaction starts off with this match. The former tag team partners put on a really good match. Cesaro hits a big powerslam, but Swagger fires back with a clothesline and a splash into the corner. Cesaro picks up Swagger and tosses him to the outside. We get back from break and Jack tries to fly. Cesaro hits a massive uppercut and begins to pound away. Swagger hits a powerslam and gets another two count. Swagger reverses Cesaro and is able to lock in the Patriot Act.
The match was hard hitting and strong throughout. Both guys are really good in the ring, with a strong emphasis on how powerful each guy is. They had a fight and a very smooth match. After the match, Lana and Rusev challenges Swagger to a Flag Match. They accept and we have a rematch at SummerSlam. Yes, sign me up. This is still a very hot angle and intriguing feud. This is a way for USA to stand tall without Rusev losing. I have NEVER seen Swagger more intense and emotional for a feud. The guy has come into his own, without even speaking a word.
R-Truth defeated Bo Dallas
Truth works quickly onto Dallas, sending him to the outside to regroup. Truth misses a splash into the corner and Dallas punches away. He hits a few elbow shots to the face and they gets disqualified by not letting up on his punches and kicks in the corner. He taps into a more aggressive side. I think this is needed if WWE wants to build him as a heel. I just think it would be more impactful if he did it to a Dolph Ziggler. You know, someone the fans care about.
