Welcome to 411's WWE Smackdown Report 5.02.14
Match times are not exact.
I had some cable issues this evening. I missed the opener, which was The Wyatt Family defeating the Usos & Sheamus in about 10-minutes. Bray hit Sister Abigail on Jimmy Uso for the pin. My apologies for this, but I am at the mercy of Time Warner on that one.
We get an Adam Rose promo.
3MB and Hornswoggle as well as the Matadores and El Torito are in the ring for the "WeeLC" match. The match will air on the Extreme Rules pre-show. Heath Slater says their bandmate Hornswoggle has demands to be met. Things such as all green M&Ms, 300 copies of 3MBS hits playing as he trains, and 10 copies of Rudy on DVD. Torito cut him off, noting if you mess with the bull, you get the horns. Vickie Guerrero does some jokes, and Hornswoggle goes to sign but cannot reach the contract. Slater slides it to him, and he signs. Torito throws away the pen and uses an inkpad on his "hoof" to sign the contract. Hornswoggle says he will be the bigger man after Sunday's match. They jack up the seats and use booster seats to try and look taller. They finally both end up on the table and go face to face. They shove each other and then brawl on the table. 3MB and the Matadores have to pull them apart. Torito and the Matadores clear the ring and then Torito runs off the table and hits a dive to the floor.
Prior to the match, Cesaro (with Heyman) make their way to the ring. I am sure they are simply there to observe.
Rob Van Dam vs. Jack Swagger w/Zeb Colter
Swagger attacks at the bell and slams RVD to the corner. Toss by Swagger, and then goes for and hits the Swagger bomb for 2. Belly to belly by Swagger, and a cover gets 2. RVD fires back with a spin kick and that sends Swagger to the floor. Swagger lays out Cesaro, and then hits a big boot to RVD as he came to the floor. Back into the ring after Cesaro tries to grab Swagger's leg, spin kick by RVD, and hits the frog splash and that is all.

After the match, Cesaro attacks RVD and hits the neutralizer.
We get a Bo Dallas video package.
Lana struts her stuff and introduces Rusev.
Alexander Rusev vs. R-Truth
Rusev takes Truth to the corner and connects with knees to begin. Kicks and strikes follow. Truth with rights, and then hits the leaping kick and then sends Rusev to the floor. Rusev takes out Woods, catches a dive by Truth and slams him to the apron. Back into the ring, and Woods is in now for the DQ.
: Alexander Rusev @ 1:00 via DQ
Woods and Truth send Rusev to the floor, and Woods follows up with a dive. Rusev to the apron, and a dropkick by Truth follows. Lana calls Rusev off for now.
We see the John Cena Make-a-Wish video.
Cole and JBL discuss the WWE Network.
Daniel Bryan makes his way to the ring. Bryan says he is just like the fans; he is grateful for what he has and fights for what's his and fights for his family. As a husband, protecting his family is his number one priority. He plans to walk into Extreme Rules as the champion and walk out as the champion. But this is about more than that, Kane put his hands on his wife, and now, now this is a war. By any means necessary, he will send Kane home, back to hell even if he has to go with him. Kane then appeared on the big screen, and promises to give Bryan a personal tour of hell when they arrive. We see video of him destroying Bryan from Raw. Kane stated that he has just started to show how sick he can be. He laughed and then set off his pyro. They battle for the title on Sunday.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Damien "Magneto" Sandow
Yes, Sandow is dressed as Magneto again. Hip toss to begin by Ziggler. He works the arm, Sandow to his feet, takes Ziggler to the corner and lays in the boots. Ziggler battles back, hits a corner splash and then a neck breaker. Elbow drop follows and Ziggler covers for 2. Sandow trips Ziggler into the ropes, hits a neck breaker and covers for 2. To the corner, kicks by Sandow and rights follow. Small package by Ziggler gets 2. Clothesline follows for Sandow, and that gets a cover for 2. Sandow tries to ground Ziggler, jawbreaker by Ziggler breaks that. Boot by Sandow, Russian leg sweep follows. Elbow with the wacky name connects for Sandow. Ziggler battles back with rights, off the ropes and Sandow tries to use his mutant powers, but Ziggler hits a dropkick. Sandow's cape went over his head, leading to a Zigzag and Ziggler winning.
Takedown by Big E to begin the match, off the ropes and then a shoulder block on Titus follows. Titus escapes the big ending, and then Big E tosses Titus to the floor. Big E follows but Titus tosses Big E over the announcer's table. He tosses him onto the table and then to the floor. Back into the ring they go, mounted rights by Titus follow. More rights by Titus as he talks trash. He takes Big E to the corner and beats him down, ref separates him and he gets the Canadian back breaker. He slams Big E down, and then lays the boots to him along the ropes, and since he will not break, he gets disqualified for kicking too much ass.
OFFICIAL RESULT: Big E @ 3:00 via DQ
After the match, Big E fought back and threw Titus to the floor. Big E then slammed him to the barricade and then Titus tripped over a cable. Big E slammed him to the steps and into the announcer's table. Big E, who was pissed, then tossed Titus into the barricade again. Finally, to get even, he tossed Titus over the announcer's table. Back into the ring and Big E stood tall, with one foot on Titus' chest.
We get a video package for Cena vs. Bray. The Wyatts appears in the back, and we hear the kids singing from Raw. Bray said that the kids reached into Cena's chest, into his heart, and ripped out Cena's soul and gave it to him. The children are the future and Bray is their hope because he will give them the love and understanding that they need. At Extreme Rules, it will be the reckoning for the Cenation, because when bray escapes the cage, he will take the Cenation with him, and leave John Cena with nothing…
We get an Adam Rose video package, he debuts on Monday. Hopefully he won't be another Dancing Homer and Capitol City.
The Shield is banned from ringside. Cole says this is day 348 of Ambrose's US Title run. The heels all surround Ambrose, who goes all wild man on them and tries to fight them off. The numbers get to him, and they beat him down and Del Rio chokes him out with the boot. Ambrose again fires up and punches away on all three men, but gets cut off and beat to the mat and then tossed to the floor. Axel tries a sneaky roll up on Del Rio for 2. Del Rio to the floor, and Ambrose back in as Axel and Ryback faced off. Ambrose attacks the legs of both, but Ryback hits a spinebuster and tosses Ambrose to the floor. Ryback and Axel look to double team Del Rio as we head to a break…
Back from commercial as Ryback and Axel are working over Del Rio in the corner. Del Rio battles back, backstabber on Ryback and a cover gets 2 as Ambrose makes a save. Axel shoots Del Rio off the ropes, gets a knee strike and covers for 2; Ambrose makes the save again.
