Mike Killam

WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt was a major player in tonight's dark matches, following the Columbus, OH taping of Friday Night Smackdown. After the cameras stopped rolling, Cody Rhodes and Goldust celebrated their victory but were cut off by Vickie Guerrero, who came out and announced a huge battle royale, with the winner getting a shot at Alberto del Rio and the World Heavyweight Championship. 

(1) Bray Wyatt won a 20-man Battle Royal. Everyone who wrestled on Smackdown was involved, including Damien Sandow, Los Matadores, and the Wyatt Family. The Wyatts cleaned house, and last eliminated Titus O'Neil to leave the three of them alone. Erick Rowan and Luke Harper left the ring to give Bray Wyatt the win.

After the match, the Wyatts attacked Alberto del Rio and knocked him out. Out comes Damien Sandow who teases cashing in Money in the Bank. However, the Wyatts attacked Sandow and prevented him from doing so. Lillian announced him as "still Mr. Money in the Bank". The crowd was very much behind Damien Sandow.
