Welcome to 411's WWE Smackdown Report 5.30.14
Match times are not exact.
The Shield make their way to the ring to kick off the show. Rollins says that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. In the case of the Shield, they are stronger, angrier hungrier and focused than ever after what happened on Raw. We see video footage from Raw. Ambrose says that the footage makes Evolution happy. But they should know who they are dealing with. They don't care, because they will keep coming. Sunday is no holds barred, elimination rules, and Evolution will see how far they will go and how far they will sink to win. But how crazy is Evolution willing to get. Rollins says the match at Payback, when he pins Randy Orton, he'll have to take a walk. And if Orton can't walk, there will be a stretcher for him. Maybe then they eliminate Batista next, leaving it 3 on 1, with Triple H being left all by himself, circled by the hounds of justice. If that is the case, they will take their time and finish the job by eliminating Triple H. The end of Evolution will be extinction. Reigns says that he ate the triple powerbomb Monday, which was a big mistake for Evolution. They will torture Evolution at Payback and destroy every announce table available. They will win again, believe that, and believe in the Shield.
