WWE Smackdown Results (5/23) – Bo Dallas Debuts, Batista vs Ziggler, Usos vs Wyatts

Bill Pritchard

Nikki Bella & Eva Marie vs The Funkadactyls
Summer Rae as Special Guest Referee

Naomi fights out of an armbar, then she goes shakes her butt in Nikki's face and mule kicks her back before running at her. Nikki takes her down and gets a near fall, with Summer ignoring the attempt, then Cameron assists Naomi with a double elbow before Cameron hits a double knee facebuster. Nikki comes back with a takedown, then Eva assists her with a legsweep, but Summer ignores another pin and Cameron gets a fast count rollup for the win.

Winners – The Funkadactyls

BP: I watched Total Divas season one just to see what it was, but lost interest. If they were building storylines through the show and they were better with time sensitivity, I'd watch more. Summer Rae played her part well; this was pretty short but it worked because of the context.

Bo Dallas vs Sin Cara

Bo cuts a promo about not seeing things, but Bo-Lieving in him. The match starts and Bo gets some strikes in, following with a suplex and some rolling kneedrops. Bo plays to the crowd and Cara goes for two rollups, then he whips him into the turnbuckles and chops him. Cara connects with a springboard forearm strike, then he counters a whip with a back handspring elbow for two. Cara connects with an enziguiri on the apron, then he goes for a senton but Bo ducks and hits a clothesline, and follows with a springboard bulldog for the win. Bo shakes Cara's hand after the match, and tells Cara to keep trying and he can be like him one day.

Winner – Bo Dallas

BP: I know Bo is going for that annoying heel role, a bit like Simon Dean, but I'm not a fan. With that said, it was a decent TV match, nothing much more. Interesting to see Bo win with a springboard bulldog, I can see that being a good finisher.

Bray Wyatt comes out and says he sees the evil in the world, and they all live in a bubble but they are all prisoners. He says that's what 'they' want, and John Cena is supposed to protect them, but he is just a monster and a liar. Bray plays a clip from Monday, and he says he wants to destroy Cena and his message. He says Cena recruited the Usos, but Cena will just cast them aside when he is done with them. Bray says his brothers will take care of the Usos tonight, and when the Cenation crumbles, he will be there standing. Bray starts going a bit crazed and chanting in Latin (or something), then he slams his hands down and starts singing.

BP: Bray's promos are a bit long, but they do get better as they go along. He builds on them and does it well, and this 'other language' portion was a nice new twist.
