Smackdown!: Kane can't control The Shield
By DALE PLUMMER -- SLAM! Wrestling


Wrestlemania is only three weeks away and the card is starting to come into focus. Daniel Bryan finally get his match with Triple H, all he had to do was occupy the ring with hundreds of "YES! Movement" fans. And Bryan may also get his title shot, if he wins. Triple H probably doesn't have anything to say about this, though, as Smackdown! comes to us from Little Rock, Arkansas.

I guess I was wrong, as COO Triple H walks out to the ring. He says he is happy everyone had their "little moment in the sun", but because of the fans Daniel Bryan isn't here. Trips says he will deal with Bryan on Monday and take him out at Wrestlemania. He is happy that everyone had their moment, but the "YES! movement" will end. It could have continued, but since the fans pressed him, Daniel Bryan will no longer get protection. Hunter protected Bryan for us, because he just isn't good enough to succeed. At Wrestlemania, Hunter vows to end Bryan and his little movement.

Hunter says the show must go on, and introduces Damien Sandow to the ring. Who just happened to have his match cancelled on Monday by the "YES! movement". Hunter isn't happy the Sandow refused to fight through the crowd and now there are some repercussions to deal with. Sandow apologizes, which seems to please Hunter, but he does inform Sandow that he is wrestling first, tonight. Vicki booked the match, though, so Hunter has no idea who his opponent is. Cue The Shield's music and enter the Hounds of Justice.

Match #1 - Damien Sandow vs. Seth Rollins w/ Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns

We join the mach in progress after a commercial break. Sandow kicks Rollins off the apron. And that's all the offense Sandow gets in. Rollins connects with a suicide dive outside the ring and then finishes him off with the boot to the back of the head.

Winner via pinfall: Seth Rollins

After the match, Ambrose refuses to give the Shield salute, instead he rolls Sandow back into the ring. A triple beat down commences and ends with the triple powerbomb.

Match #2 Big E vs. Fandango w/ Summer Rae

Remember when this guy was beating Chris Jericho last year? Yea, now he's jobbing out in a matter of minutes and his valet is poised to be a bigger star then him. After a tackle, Big E delivers the Big Ending and gets the pin.

Winners via pinfall: Big E

We haven't seen Bad News Barrett since Elimination Chamber when his podium broke. I guess that thing isn't the easiest to get parts for. Anyway, tonight's bad news is that The Undertaker's streak will end, your kids will cry all night, you won't get any sleep, you will fall asleep at work and then get fired. Well, Barrett the joke's on you, I work nights!

Match #3 - The Real Americans w/ Zeb Colter vs. Cody Rhodes and Goldust

The rumor was the Goldust and Cody were going to split up, but right now the Real Americans are the ones on the rocks. Cesaro made another blind tag, much to the chagrin of Swagger. After a delayed vertical suplex to Cody, Swagger returns the favor. Cody nearly gets the tag to his brother, but Swagger knocks Goldust off the apron. Instead, Cody is able to pin Swagger with a backslide to the get the win.

Winners via pinfall: Cody Rhodes and Goldust

After the match, The Real Americans take out their frustration on Cody and Glodust until The Usos run down to make the save.

Match #4 - Bray Wyatt w/ The Family vs. Kofi Kingston

The one good thing about the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal is that it will get a lot of guys on the Wrestlemania card, like Kofi. Anyway, Kofi pretty much gets destroyed and Bray gets the pin after a Sister Abigail.

Winner via pinfall: Bray Wyatt

Kane calls The Shield into his office to congratulate them on their recent success. Ambrose tells Kane he should be focused on his match with The Big Show. Kane promises to destroy Show and he wants them at ringside to see how things are handled. Rollins says he knows Kane wants them out there for protection. Rollins says The Shield always does what is best for business.

Match #5 Nikki Bella w/ Brie vs. Tamina w/ AJ Lee

AJ joins Cole and JBL at the announce table. Cole tries to put over Total Divas and AJ just ignores him. Nikki rolls away from the Super Fly Splash, but Tamina lands on her feet. Nikki kicks out of pin after a super kick. AJ gets up, but is taken out by a flying forearm off the apron by Brie. Tamina helps AJ out, but Nikki is able to get her in the torture rack slam when she gets back in the ring. Nikki covers and gets the win.

Winner via pinfall: Nikki Bella

Match #6 Dolph Ziggler vs. Alberto Del Rio

Del Rio cut a vignette hyping his entrance into the Battle Royal, and he backs it up by dominating Ziggler early in the match. Ziggler tries to rally, but ADR catches him with an enziguri in the corner. Ziggler kicks out of the pin. ADR goes up top and Ziggler catches him with a drop kick as ADR leaps off the turnbuckle. Ziggler hits a neck breaker, but can't get the pin. Del Rio hits an arm breaker and follows with a kick to the temple. Ziggler kicks out and ADR can't believe it. Ziggler counters an attempt at the cross arm breaker, but is whipped into the corner. Del Rio misses the enziguri and Ziggler counters with the Zig Zag, but ADR still kicks out. Ziggler counters another cross arm breaker attempt and hits the Zig Zag. Dolph covers and gets the win.

Winner via pinfall: Dolph Ziggler

After the match, Ziggler announces his entrance into the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

The next entrant into the WWE Hall of Fame is Carlos Colon, the father of Primo and Carlito.

The Wyatt Family has another cryptic message for John Cena.

Match #7 The Big Show vs. Kane w/ The Shield

Despite Kane ordering The Shield to follow him to the ring, they are nowhere to be found when the match starts. Shortly after the bell, The Shield makes its way to the ring. Show chops Kane across the chest, and the Director of Operations rolls out of the ring. He nods at The Shield before re-entering the ring and taking Show out with a chop block. Kane goes for the choke slam, but Show fights him off. Kane runs into a clothesline and Show follows with a spear. Show goes up top, but Kane catches him and choke slams him to the mat. Kane covers, but Show kicks out. Kane tells Rollins to get in the ring. The Shield jumps to the apron, but won't enter the ring. Rollins shakes his head and they jump to the floor. Kane is grabbed by Big Show and choke slammed. Show covers to get the win.

Winner via pinfall: The Big Show

After the bell, Rollins is grabbed by Kane, but Reigns makes the save with a spear. They walk out as the show ends.
