Smackdown!: Punk, Bryan outsmart the Wyatt Family in England
By DALE PLUMMER -- SLAM! Wrestling


It's that time of the year again; the time when WWE goes over seas and packs arenas on foreign soil. Tonight's Smackdown! comes to us from Manchester, England and the plot lines still matter if RAW was any indication on Monday. As always, Michael Cole and JBL call the action.

Match #1 - The Usos vs. Harper and Rowan w/ Bray Wyatt

That's thing with these overseas shows, WWE doesn't screw around; getting right to the action. Rowan knocks Jey to the mat and then drives him into the corner. Harper makes the tag, but runs right into a boot. Jimmy tags in, hitting a flying forearm. We go to break.

After the commercials, Harper gives Jimmy a ride with the gator roll. Harper tags in Rowan, hitting a back breaker. Jimmy connects on a spin kick and gets the tag to his brother. Jey hits Harper with a forearm and follows with a Samoan drop. Jey runs into a big boot and Jimmy runs in to break the pin. Harper knock Jimmy from the ring allowing Jey to connect with a super kick. Harper cuts off Jey from leaping out of the ring and takes him down with a clothesline. Harper covers Jey to get the win.

After the match, bray hits the ring and the Usos ty to fight back. Bray unloads on Jey and hits him with the Sister Abigail. Bray then cuts a promo on CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.

Ryback is pacing back stage and tells Curtis Axel that if he is still a Paul Heyman guy, he has a problem with him. Axel isn't happy about being called a suck up, and throws it back in Ryback's face. Axel says he is no longer with Heyman and they should take out their frustration on Punk and Bryan.

R-Truth is in the locker room freestyling with the Prime Time Players. Truth says the most important thing is taking care of 3MB, the Union Jacks or whatever they are calling themselves.

Match #2 Natalya vs. Tamina w/ AJ Lee

Natalya is able to lock in a Sharp Shooter after interference from AJ backfires. Tamina taps out.

Winner via submission: Natalya

Match #4 Alberto Del Rio vs. John Cena - Arm Wrestling Contest

Alberto Del Rio accuses Cena of stealing the World Heavyweight Title, but he will get it back at Survivor Series. Del Rio wants to know if Cena is going to accept the challenge to arm wrestle. He better, somebody went to the trouble of setting up an arm wrestling table in the ring. Of course Cena accepts. The World Heavyweight Champ hits the ring, but first ribs a fan that is dressed as Superman. Cena can tell Del Rio is desperate, because if he loses at Survivor Series, he will lose everything. Cena and Del Rio finally get down to business. Cena wins without any effort. Del Rio demands another try and loses, but uses the opportunity to punch Cena in the head. Cena fights out of the cross arm breaker, but Del Rio is able to put him through the table with a spine buster.
