Spoilers: WWE SmackDown Tapings for 4/11/14

– Thanks to Justin Reeves for the following WWE SmackDown spoilers from tonight’s tapings in Lafayette:

* John Cena kicks off SmackDown and talks about WrestleMania XXX. He says it’s an exciting time to be part of WWE. He says the future is now and he is the measuring stick of this business. The Wyatt Family interrupts on the big screen. Bray Wyatt says he can’t feel pain and if he lost, why can’t he stop smiling. Bray cuts a great promo and says he will get extreme and this is just the beginning.

* Big Show vs. Cesaro is up next. Paul Heyman comes out and says there is officially no more doubt that he is the greatest manager of all time. He introduces Cesaro, who comes out to no music. They walk to the ring and we get the bell. The match starts slow as Heyman goes on commentary and Cesaro is using some noticeable heel tactics such as leaving the ring, huddling with Heyman and a thumb to the eye. This isn’t Cesaro’s normal type of exciting match, but look at the opponent. Just as Cesaro was going for the Swing, Jack Swagger came out and put the ankle lock on Cesaro. The bell rings and Cesaro wins by DQ. Show throws Swagger out of the ring and then Cesaro attacks Show from behind. Cesaro struggles a lot but successfully hits Show with the Neutralizer.

* Ryback and Curtis Axel defeated Los Matadores in a quick match.

* Rob Van Dam cuts a babyface promo before defeating Damien Sandow.

* Hulk Hogan comes out and cuts a promo on WrestleMania XXX. He brings out Daniel Bryan to a big pop. Bryan talks about winning the titles and getting married later this week. Bryan talks about being a fan of Hogan and asks that Real American be played. Hogan and Bryan celebrate to Hogan’s music as the crowd pops.

* Bad News Barrett defeated Kofi Kingston.

* Fandango with Layla defeated Santino Marella with Emma. Fandango has officially dumped Summer Rae and is now with Layla. Layla taunted Emma at ringside.

* Daniel Bryan and The Usos went to a double count out against Kane, Randy Orton and Batista. Bryan got the biggest pop of the night when he got the hot tag and cleaned house. They all brawled to the floor for the count out. Kane, Orton and Batista got the upperhand after the bell until The Shield came out. Orton and Batista ran off together and Bryan laid Kane out with a flying knee. SmackDown ends with Bryan and The Shield celebrating to “yes!” chants.

    I say why break up The Shield period I mean why not let these guys stay together there whole career. It could happen I mean not likely but they have been a monster heel and now going to be a huge face. I really say if they got a good thing going why break it up. Hey all three could have a chance at WWE/World champion at a time. It could happen never say never in wrestling I always say.

    I would love to see The Shield’s face turn play out for awhile before breaking up. I mean, they’re so over now, so it would be kind of foolish to break them up at this moment. Let it play out till Summerslam atleast, that way we can atleast get a Evolution vs Shield match first. And I also think they should save Lesnar vs Bryan for Summerslam. That way you have two huge matches already for your 2nd biggest PPV of the year. That’s a big-4 PPV type of match anyways.

    Kind of like Hulk Hogan passing the torch. What a champion Bryan going to be talk about being at the right place at the right time. Also The Shield been saying for quit a while that the Shield would turn face before breaking up. Now who going to be the main heel that next thing to figure out. Yeah got Randy Orton, Batista and HHH although something tells me HHH will be leaving TV in another month. So who is going to be that rival that Bryan going to go up against that is the next big question.
