As the show starts Batista come out and starts a promo on his question last week "where have all the real men gone?" He says the answer he got was Dolph Ziggler and he beat him like it was nothing. He then says the following answer was Daniel Bryan and once again he proved his dominace and beat him like Bryan was nothing. Batista also states that Bryan is just a wrestling fan, not a wrestler (but my question is, was it Batista in the Indy circuit for years? No it was Daniel Bryan AKA Bryan Danielson) Batista continues his rant saying this isn't the WWE Universe it's Batista's universe. Daniel Bryan then comes out and asks him if he thinks he's the hero in all of this. Batista in his skinny jeans, open vest with no shirt (he need to find one ASAP), tattoo around his belly AND a nose ring? By this time in Daniel Bryan's part of the promo Batista has had enough and attacks Bryan. Daniel Bryan kicks Batista outside of the ring only to have Kane come out and distract him. With Daniel Bryans back turned and attention on Kane, Batista then attacks Bryan from behind. When Kane gets to the ring the two double team him until Big Show comes to the rescue. Kane and Batista leave the ring and Vickie comes out and makes a match (main event) for later on in the evening. Daniel Bryan & Big Show vs Kane & Batista.
Match 1: Dolph Ziggler vs Christian (with Alberto Del Rio on commentary)
This was an okay match. Not my favorite. Dolph show's off some and Christian shows why he should have "one more match" and Christian gets the win after Del Rio gets on the commentary table and distracts Ziggler.
Winner by pinfall: Christian
After the match Christian is in the ring with interviewer Reene Young. She tries to ask him a question only for Christian to stop her and tell the crowd to shut up so he can hear her. After he yells he tells her to ask him the question. Reene then asks why it seems all his anger is directed towards Sheamus. Before he gets to answer the question Sheamus intrupts them by coming to the ring. With Sheamus and Christian both in the ring a little fight starts out only for Sheamus to attempt his Brouge Kick (which missed) and Christian retreats.
Match 2: The Uso's vs Ryback and Curtis Axel
This match wasn't that good. The Uso's were the only good part of it, because of their high flying and the great double chin kick that they performed together.
Winners: The Uso's
Next they show a video package of the Paul Heyman promo/pipebomb and Lesnar from Monday night. This Monday The Undertaker returns to RAW.

Match 3: Natalya and Eva Marie vs Tamina and AJ Lee
I feel Eva need to improve a lot before she starts having any kind of matches, but she trys and shows LITTLE improvement, however Tamina is too strong for her and over powers her. Tamina tags the Diva's Champ into the match. AJ gets the better of Eva for a little until Natalya is tagged in. They battle for a little while and then AJ goes for her submission (Black Widow) only for Natalya to end up putting her in the Sharpshooter forcing AJ to tap out.
Winnersby submission: Natalya and Eva Marie
Recap of what was announced on Monday Night RAW. The next inductee into the Hall of Fame is Paul Bearer.
After the Paul Bearer video package its time for..... Shield Summit!!!!!
The Shield come out; well 2/3rds of The Shield. Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns come down and get in the ring. There is a video package of what happened on Monday Night RAW when The Shield went up agains The Wyatt family and Seth walked away from the team and the match. Dean has a mic and rants about how Seth betrayed them and they are mad and they know that he is in the area since he called this "summit" and he has "by the look on Roman's face, 30 seconds" to get out to ring and explain himself. Seth then come out to the ring with a mic and says that he was once again sacraficing himself for the better of the team. Dean intrupts and says he wasn't sacraficing anything. He was fighting off while Seth just walked off. Seth then says that it wasn't the right time to prove a point BUT he proved his point. Roman and Dean were now on the same page and in the ring and seeing eye to eye instead of fighting. Seth gets in the ring and they have a few words back and forth and then Seth slaps Dean, who ends up falling to the ground. Getting up Dean then pushes Seth and then knocks him down, only to have Roman grab him and toss him back to the ground. Both get up and Seth says they need to get stuff off their chests and slaps Dean again saying that felt really good. Dean gets up and Seth says he's gonna take one for the team, cause thats what he does, Dean then slaps Seth again knocking him back down. Once Seth gets back up he asks "are we done or are we done?" he then puts his fist out. Roman comes over looking at Seth the entire time and puts his fist out. Dean is the last one, but he also walks over muttering something to the two and then puts his fist out. At least for now, The Shield are back on the same page and back. I give this whole promo/segment a 10 out of 10. (In my opinion, the best part of the whole show.)
Match 4: Sheamus vs Alberto Del Rio
This match was ok. Nothing great in my opinion. Sheamus comes out with an injured arm. Threw the match they go back and forth with Del Rio targeting Sheamus' injery. Del Rio gets his arm breaker on Sheamus twice but Sheamus gets out of it both times (once by picking him up, and the second time by getting to the rope). After getting out of the second arm breaker, Sheamus performs his Brouge Kick for the win.
Right after the match there is a promo delivered by... The Wyatt Family. They talk about Cena.
Bryon Saxton then interviews Batista in the locker rooms.
Lana comes out and introduces Rusev. Rusev then comes out and gives a promo in a foreign language (Bulgarian more than likely)
Next Monday Hogan is back on RAW and he has a WrestleMania announcement!
Reene has an interview with Daniel Bryan and Big Show. Big Show asks if he got skinny jeans like Batista would that make him more of a man? NO!!!!! Big Show then call their team: Respect The Beard and Fear The Giant. Que the YES chant.
Match 5: Kane & Batista vs Daniel Bryan & Big Show
This match starts off with the former tag team campions (Team Hell No) starting the match off. At some point Big Show is tagged in and does a double DDT/Suplex type move (not sure which it was) and then Daniel Bryan then performs a suicide dive the the two outside the ring. At the end of the match Kane attempts a choke slam, which Bryan gets out of and tries to roll him but only to have Kane grab Bryan by the beard to go for another choke slam, only for Big Show (outside of the ring) to give Kane his KO punch. Daniel Bryan gets the pin.
Winners: Daniel Bryan and Big Show
By the way I am seeming to have a HUGE issue when either writing or typing Batista's name I keep writing/typing it as Bootista.... Just though I would say that so if at some point I end up doing that, don't be to suprised. This wasn't my favorite show that I have seen of SmackDown, however I have to say that The Shield segment totally stole the whole show.
Overall it was just an ok show. Nothing great but nothing too horrible. I'd give the entire show a 5 out of 10 and maybe a C grade. Let me know if you agree or disagree. I love hearing what everyone else thinks!
