Smackdown!: The Usos take on the Wyatt Family in London
By DALE PLUMMER -- SLAM! Wrestling


It's that time of year again, when WWE travels across the pond to take a swing through the United Kingdom. Which is actually unfortunately timing this year, with the status of WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan still up in the air. There won't be any decisions made tonight in London, England.

The Mouth of the South, Jimmy Hart, introduces Hulk Hogan to the ring. Hogan does his usual shtick before promoting the WWE Network that will be launching shortly in the UK.

Match #1 - Dolph Ziggler vs. Batista - No Disqualification Match

Dolph opens with a standing drop kick and stomps away at The Animal. Ziggler shoots off the ropes, but runs right into a spine buster. Batista grabs a chair, but Ziggler is able to rip it out of hands. Batista yanks Dolph out of the ring and drives him into the announce table. He follows up by dropping Ziggler on the security barrier. Dolph is able to side step a spear and sends Batista crashing into the barrier. Batista and Ziggler crash into the time keeper's area and we go to break.

After the break, Ziggler ducks a chair shot and delivers shots of his own. Ziggler wails on The Animal outside the ring, but can't get him back into the ring. Batista is whipped into the ring steps. Ziggler gets Batista back in the ring and hits a neck breaker and follows with a DDT. Dolph can't get the pin, though. Ziggler hits the famouser, but still can't get the pin. Batista rolls to the floor, but baseball slide from Ziggler sends him flying over the announce table and into Michael Cole. Batista whips Ziggler into the steps as JBL berates Cole for napping on the job. Batista looks for the Bomb onto the ring steps, but Ziggler counters with a low blow. Ziggler misses the famouser off the apron, and jams his leg into the ring steps. Batista rolls the injured Ziggler in the ring, and catches him with the spear. Batista covers to get the win.

Winners via pinfall: Batista

After the bell, Batista delivers a Batista Bomb to Ziggler.

Match #2 - Cameron and Naomi vs. Nikki Bella and Eva Maria - Summer Rae special guest referee

Summer doesn't make the count when Eva pins Cameron, but makes a very fast count after Cameron rolls her up. Summer splits from the ring, as Eva yells at her and the Funkadactyls are confused.

Winner via pinfall: Cameron and Naomi

And now it's time for what everyone has been waiting for, the debut of Bo Dallas. I BO-LIEVE! This guy is supposed to be a heel, right? And the answer is a definitive, YES!, as soon as he opens his mouth.

Match #3 - Bo Dallas vs. Sin Cara

Dallas hits one move and celebrates like he just won the WWE Heavyweight Title. Bo gives Sin Cara a thumbs up before driving a knee into his face. Sin Cara connects with lateral press and the springboard back elbow, but Dallas kicks out of the pin. Dallas rolls away from moonsault and connects with a clothesline. Dallas follows with a running bulldog off the ropes and covers Sin Cara to get his first win.

Winners via pinfall: Bo Dallas

Dallas takes a victory lap around the ring and then tells Cara his did good and to never stop trying.

The Wyatt Family is in the ring and Bray delivers a promo aimed at John Cena. Bray calls out Cena for using the Usos as pawns and tonight they will learn that there are worse things than dying. Bray starts talking in tongues before collapsing to the mat. He finishes the rant by singing the familiar refrain, "He's got the whole world in his hands."

Match #4 Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio

Cesaro and Pual Heyman join the announce position. Cesaro keeps answering Cole's questions in languages other than English. Sheamus decks Cesaro, who tried to nail a cheap shot. Cesaro pulls Sheamus out of the ring and delivers a Nuetralizer to Sheamus, getting ADR disqualified.

Winner via disqualification: Sheamus

We don't know if Bryan will be stripped of the WWE World Heavyweight Title, but the good news is that the surgery was a success.

Vicki Guerrero has an announcement to make in the ring, but she is interrupted Adam Rose and the Exotic Express. Although, she doesn't seem to upset, at first. Vicki welcomes Adam to Smackdown! He tells London not to be a lemon. He wants to know if Vicki is a lemon or a rosebud. The crowd goes with lemon. Vicki freaks out and orders Rose out of the ring. Rose offers her his lollipop, but Vicki is repulsed. She falls off the apron into the party crowd and they carry her off to the back.

Renee Young asks the Usos how they feel heading into their match with the Wyatts. The Usos say there are a real family and they have something they Wyatts don't, the tag team titles. The Usos toss it to John Cena, who says talk is cheap and that's all the Wyatts; actions speak louder than words.

Match #5 The Usos w/ John Cena vs. Luke Harper and Erik Rowan w/ Bray Wyatt

Jey faces off against Harper to start the match. Jimmy makes a blind tag but then gets caught in the heel corner. Rowan tags in, tosses Jey across the ring, but then runs into a boot. Jimmy tags in to splash Rowan in the corner. A cross body block sends both men spilling over the top rope to the floor and we go to break.

After the break, Harper side steps and attack from Jimmy, sending him crashing into the ropes. Rowan tags in and starts to crush Jimmy's skull. Rowan and Harper takes turns with elbow drops. Harper connects with a heel kick, but Jey is able to break the pinfall. Jimmy is able to climb the turnbuckle to hit a corkscrew moonsault and get the tag to his brother. Jimmy is all over Rowan, hitting a Samoan drop. Harper hits the ring, catching Jimmy with a big boot, but Jey takes him out. Rowan gets to his feet, but Jimmmy avoids a spear and Rowan eats the ring post. Jimmy takes Rowan out on the floor by diving over the top rope. Jimmy goes up top again, but Bray pushes him off. The ref call for the bell, disqualifying the Wyatts. Cena hits the ring to deliver an AA to Rowan.

Winner via DQ: The Usos

After the bell, Bray jumps to the apron, but decides not to take on Cena.
