Smackdown spoilers (airs 8/22/14)

By Joe Stock

Adam Rose defeated Fandango before Main Event started. Not sure if that a dark match, they had the Smackdown logo up and the apron, but no commentators in place. I missed the whole match, so don't know how Rose won.

After Main Event went off the air, they did Cesaro vs Kofi Kingston. No cameras, so a dark match. Cesaro won with the Neutralizer in nine minutes.

Then they switched to Smackdown.

Randy Orton cut an in-ring promo. He said Reigns won the battle, but not the war. He then brought up RVD and promised to put him away.

As Orton left, Seth Rolling came down for his match. The two shook hands in the aisle.

Seth Rollins defeated Jack Swagger by count out in nine minutes. No Zeb Coulter. Swagger was getting back into the ring from the outside, but Rollins Curb-Stomped him, sending him back out. Swagger was KOed and didn't even move as the ten count happened.

Bo Dallas came out as Jack was still out and cut an in-ring promo promising to pick up Swagger's slack and become America's Sweetheart.

Backstage segment with Miz and Corporate Kane. Kane told Miz that he had a match with Roman Reigns tonight.

They surrounded the ring, only for Reigns to come in to even the odds. Bray bailed as Cena and Reigns did their finishers on Harper and Rowen. That was it.
