SmackDown Results, Feb. 5, 2015: Bryan suffered a 4-on-1 onslaught at the hands of The Authority, while Reigns out-awed The Awesome One
“Miz TV” with special guests Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns got “canceled”
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — SmackDown made its move into the Fastlane, as Daniel Bryan’s Handicap Match against Seth Rollins and J&J Security descended into post-match chaos and Roman Reigns went head-to-head with The Miz.
With his former stunt double/turned personal assistant Damien Mizdow parked at ringside, The Miz welcomed Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns to “Miz TV.” But before he could ask a single question, The Big Dog blasted him with the Superman Punch, effectively “canceling” the episode.
Reigns informed Bryan that after going through 29 Superstars in the Royal Rumble, he would have no trouble going through The Beard at WWE Fastlane — with the WWE World Heavyweight Title Match at WrestleMania on the line.
But just when it looked like the two Superstars might not want to wait for their showdown at WWE’s newest pay-per-view to engage each other, Seth Rollins interrupted, making it clear that he would have beaten Bryan on Raw if it weren’t for Reigns. The “Future of WWE” then informed Bryan that he would be in a 3-on-1 Handicap Match against both him and J&J Security.
Later, an outraged Miz challenged Roman Reigns to a match on SmackDown, a call-to-action that Reigns would eagerly accept.
Dolph Ziggler & Ryback def. Gold & Stardust
Despite some recent turmoil between Gold & Stardust, the former WWE Tag Team Champions came together to take on the high-spirited combination of Dolph Ziggler & Ryback.
When Goldust called his brother in the cosmos “Cody,” however, Stardust tagged him in and walked away from the match. The disruption allowed Ziggler to hit his remaining opponent with a fierce kick. This opened the door to Ryback’s Shell Shocked and Goldust’s ultimate defeat.
Dean Ambrose def. Curtis Axel
After The Lunatic Fringe silenced his outspoken opponent with Dirty Deeds, Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett delivered some bad news on BNZ that Ambrose will not be getting a title opportunity any time soon.
Fandango def. Adam Rose
When Adam Rose’s Rosebuds botched a trust fall just moments before his match against Fandango, the enraged competitor snapped and began to attack them. But all the anger in the world couldn’t stop Rose from falling to Fandango’s finishing maneuver, the Last Dance.
Roman Reigns def. The Miz
After being knocked out on “Miz TV” with the Superman Punch, The Miz challenged Roman Reigns to a SmackDown showdown.
Before Reigns could enter the ring for the contest, though, The Awesome One unleashed a vicious pre-match sneak attack on the black-clad Superstar. Despite this onslaught, The Big Dog roared back, defeating Miz with a Superman Punch/Spear combination.
Rusev def. Erick Rowan
In a fierce match, United States Champion Rusev sent a message to John Cena, earning a hard-fought victory over Erick Rowan with the Accolade.
