WWE Smackdown Spoilers for 01/28/2016: Highlight Reel With Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns
WWE Smackdown is all-new this Thursday night on USA Network, and it’ll feature the follow-up to a momentous Monday Night Raw, in which Stephanie McMahon announced that Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar would compete in a triple threat match at Fastlane for the right to face Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania. Last night, the episode was taped, and it featured some intersting matches…and some annoying developments.
On the annoying front, it’s now been one full month since the last time a Smackdown main event had a finish that didn’t end in a disqualification. But it’s not all bad, as we get the Smackdown debut of AJ Styles, a high-flying match between Neville and U.S. champion Kalisto, and another iteration of the Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho welcoming Reigns and Ambrose to the show. All in all, it looks like a decent episode of Smackdown that actually could move storylines forward for once, as a rivalry (friendly or otherwise) seems to be brewing between the former Shield allies. Check out the full smackdown spoilers below via Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Weekly:
-New Day kicked off the show by dissing The Rock for not holding any championships. The Miz came out and agreed. The Usos then came out and dissed The Miz.
