WWE taped the July 18, 2014 WWE SmackDown episode from the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Here are WWE SmackDown spoilers.
* SmackDown kicks off with Dean Ambrose in the ring. He’s pissed off and talks about Randy Orton, Kane and Seth Rollins beating him down on RAW. Ambrose wants revenge tonight.
* Alberto Del Rio defeated Kofi Kingston.
* Alicia Fox vs. Eva Marie with Nikki Bella as special referee ends in a no contest when they both attack Nikki.
* Chris Jericho comes out and cuts a promo on The Wyatt Family. Jericho vs. Luke Harper is next. This was said to be a great back and forth match. Harper nailed a big powerbomb at one point but Jericho kicked out. Jericho put Harper in the Walls of Jericho but Erick Rowan interfered and then Bray Wyatt interfered. The Usos ran out to make the save.
* Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter come out to a nice reception for an in-ring segment. They’re interrupted by Lana and Rusev for another anti-American promo.
* Dolph Ziggler and Sheamus vs. Fandango and The Miz is next. Ziggler and Sheamus get the win after a solid tag team match.
* Dean Ambrose vs. Kane is the main event. It ends when Seth Rollins attacks Ambrose. Kane brings in steel steps and chokeslams Ambrose. Rollins hits a stomp on top of the steps. This is apparently where SmackDown ended. Roman Reigns ran out for the save but we’re not sure if it was part of the dark main event or not.
