SmackDown Review: Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt

8 of 9

Mark Henry, Big Show and Roman Reigns vs. The Wyatt Family

With Henry, Show and Reigns already in the ring, the lights cut, and when they came back on, The Wyatt Family were in the ring, standing off with their opponents. The standoff went a couple of seconds, before Show made the slowest charge ever at Erick Rowan, delivering a boot to the stomach and starting a six-man brawl before the bell even rang.

The three faces had control of the match, each getting a turn in the match, until Henry started showboating a little bit, allowing Luke Harper to take advantage.

It’s a little thing, but it’s important to note that this is when Bray Wyatt finally tagged in. The fact that Harper and Rowan don’t tag him until they have control is very important for their act.

Henry and Show did everything in this match for their side. Henry did the early selling, until he made a hot tag to Show. Show then sold well for the entire Wyatt Family, until he made the hot tag to Reigns. Reigns dominated The Wyatt Family, until he hit Harper with a Superman Punch, and Rowan broke up the pin. Show chokeslammed Rowan, took a shot from Bray, who then took a World’s Strongest Slam from Henry, who ate a big boot from Harper, who got speared by Reigns.

Reigns, Show and Henry defeat The Wyatt Family via pinfall.

3.75 out of 5 stars- Roman Reigns is red-hot. His comeback/hot tag routine gets me every single time. The Wyatt Family delivered in this match as well. I’m still not worried about them, because despite the fact that they lost twice this week, they were in the main event of both shows.
