WWE Smackdown (4/18) Results: The Game Is Announced


Welcome to WWE Smackdown, Triple H comes down to the ring to kick things off. He says that part of his job is to find the greatest talent around the world and watching him succeed. He says that the Shield is the group of talented he has ever seen in many years. He gave them power, maybe he gave him too much power. When you have power, you try to find out how far your power can take you. However, when you find that line that you do not have enough power to get across and the Shield crossed the line. They paid for crossing that line. A video package is shown on how we got to this point with him and the Shield. Triple H says that they can move past all this, all they had to do is beg his forgiveness. Instead, they have been silent and then Roman Reigns said that Kings do not win wars, soldiers do. He says that is not reality, the soldiers are the currency on empires that are bought and sold. He says that their value is gone, at Extreme Rules the Shield will step into the ring with Evolution. They return at Extreme Rules to show what real destruction and power really is.
