Welcome to 411's WWE Smackdown Report 6.20.14
Match times are not exact.
We get highlights from Monday's Raw.
They hype tonight's main event, which is Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Alberto Del Rio and Cesaro vs. Sheamus, Roman Reigns and John Cena.
John Cena makes his way to the ring. Cena welcomes the fans to Smackdown, and points towards the WWE World Title belts. He then jokes about his clothes and mentions that we can see even though he says we can't see him. He then does a rapid fire oral history of the events that brought us to the WWE World Title being vacated, which leads to MITB. He then jokes about the participants sounding like the beginning of a bad joke, but notes he will punch each and every one of them and will leave MITB as the world champion. Alberto Del Rio comes out and says Cena needs to worry about him, because he qualified first for the match and will win at the PPV. He tells Cena that he is dangerous, and will remind Cena of that when he wins the title and stands over Cena. Sheamus continues the revolving door and says that no one cares about what Del Rio has to say. At MITB it is everyone for themselves, but he will be the biggest threat in the match, and will be the US Champion as well as the World Heavyweight Champion. Heyman, along with Cesaro make their way out. Heyman hypes that the titles will be on the line, and that a new champion will be crowned. He then guarantees that no one in the ring will win the title, because his client, Cesaro, will win because he will strategize against the others to ensure that Cesaro wins. Client, Lesnar, streak, broken, LOL to all of you. Reigns now makes his way through the crowd, and says since Rollins stabbed him in the back. He has some trust issues, but now the only thing that matters is becoming champion. He doesn't care how many there are or who you think you are (stares down with Cena) there is not a man here that will stop him now. This leads to Randal K. Orton, Esquire coming out and he tells Reigns it is about time he learned that you can't trust anyone. Orton reminds us that he is the face of the WWE, and that the title comes home to him. Reigns to the floor and they brawl up to the stage with Reigns getting the better of things. The rest of the crew brawl in the ring, Cena and Sheamus clear things out and stand tall. Cena gave Sheamus the old stink eye, like he was about to attack.

It could be any night. Rollins says it is a shame that Rollins has to battle Kane, because he would love for him to come to the ring. Ambrose doesn't buy that, and says when he is done with Kane, he will focus all of his energy on Rollins. He then vowed to send both Rollins and Kane back to hell.
