WWE Smackdown Results
April 2nd 2015
Report by Bill Pritchard for Wrestlezone.com
Seth Rollins comes out with the Authority and says his plan worked, and he solidified himself as the face of WWE by winning the WWE title. Rollins says he’s already proven he’s the best in the ring, but the WWE Universe deserves him at his best, and Monday wasn’t Brock Lesnar’s night. He says Brock showed what kind of monster he really is by attacking innocent people, and he got what he deserved. Randy Orton cuts him off and says he’s next in line for the title since he nearly took Rollins’ head when he beat him at Wrestlemania.
Rollins says he should stop living in the past because the future’s right here, and this is his universe, not Orton’s, so he gives out title shots. Orton mocks each of the men in the ring with Rollins, eventhough he gives props to Big Show for winning the battle royal. He singles Kane out and says he went from the ‘big red monster’ to ‘Little Red Riding Hood,’ but Kane says he has plenty of power around here. Kane books Orton against Big Show tonight, and he says they might think of Orton getting a title shot if he is able to win his match… which is next.
Randy Orton vs Big Show
Orton kicks Show a few times before getting hit with a shoulder tackle, then Show whips him in the corner and splashes him. Orton fires right back with a dropkick, then he hangs Show up on the ropes and kicks him in the head. He sets Show up on the top rope and connects with a hangman’s DDT, then Orton calls for a RKO but Mercury runs in and attacks Orton for the disqualification.
Winner (by disqualification) – Randy Orton
Rollins directs traffic as everyone attacks Orton, then Rollins gets in the ring but Orton dives on him and throws some punches. Kane runs over and chokeslams Orton, but Ryback runs out and takes everyone out, and Orton RKO’s Mercury. Ryback hits Shell Shocked, then Orton RKO’s Kane as Rollins clutches his title on the ramp.
