-John Cena kicked off Smackdown and announced that we are in a new era following WrestleMania XXX, and talked about Daniel Bryan, Cesaro and The Shield winning their matches. He calls himself the "measuring stick" and "standard bearer", and reiterates that anyone who wants to make a name for themselves in the WWE now has to go directly through him. The Wyatt Family cut a promo backstage, with Bray Wyatt saying that he'll have to go to "new extremes" to pull the monster out of John Cena. Not-so-subtle hint for next month's PPV. 

(1) Cesaro def. Big Show via disqualification. Cesaro worked as a heel through the match, with Paul Heyman at ringside. Prior to the match, Heyman came out and talked up Cesaro and Brock Lesnar. The crowd was pretty split on how to handle Cesaro, as they should be. The match ended with Jack Swagger attacking Cesaro and putting him in the Patriot Lock. Cesaro still managed to hit Big Show with The Neutralizer. 

(2) Ryback & Curtis Axel def. Los Matadores
