WWE SmackDown results, Aug. 27, 2015: The Wyatt Family’s ‘New Face of Destruction’ destroyed Ambrose and Reigns

Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose interrupted the introduction of The Wyatt Family’s “Black Sheep”

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — On the first post-SummerSlam SmackDown, The Wyatt Family’s heated fight with Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose continued, The Dudley Boyz made their triumphant return to SmackDown and Seth Rollins vowed to end Sting at Night of Champions.

The Wyatt Family kicks off SmackDown

Bray Wyatt introduced "The New Face of Destruction" Braun Strowman to the WWE Universe.

The Wyatt Family — now a monster stronger — kicked off SmackDown amid a sea of fireflies. “The New Face of Fear” Bray Wyatt and “The New Face of Desolation” Luke Harper introduced “The New Face of Destruction” Braun Strowman to the WWE Universe, citing Sister Abigail for familiarizing the “perfectly imperfect” monster with the Wyatt Family patriarch.

The introduction of The Wyatt Family’s newest member to SmackDown was quickly interrupted, however, by Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. The “brothers in arms” declared that if they are going down, they are doing it swinging. Despite a tense staredown inside the ring, the new-look Wyatt Family chose to fight another day, deliberately removing themselves from the squared-circle.

The Dudley Boyz def. The Ascension

After the contest, Bubba Ray and D-Von set up a table, only to be interrupted by the sign-carrying New Day, protesting the team’s use of the furniture. The WWE Tag Team Champions’ demonstration was to no avail, though, as the duo from Dudleyville proceeded to send Viktor spiraling through the table from the top rope.

Seth Rollins sounded off about Sting’s surprise return

Seth Rollins responds to Sting's surprise emergence on Raw: SmackDown, Aug. 27, 2015

The WWE World Heavyweight Champion vows to crush Sting's "old bones to dust."

Seth Rollins was in his usual boastful form on SmackDown, gloating about his greatness and going so far to say Hollywood stars like Brad Pitt and Channing Tatum would line up to play him in a movie about his story. The WWE World Heavyweight Champion also clearly still tasted some sour grapes as he claimed that Sting was jealous of him.

A fired up Rollins then guaranteed that he will not only defeat The Icon at Night of Champions in their WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match, but he would also finish what Triple H started and crush The Stinger’s “old bones to dust.”

Ryback & Dolph Ziggler def. Big Show & Rusev

Ryback & Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev & Big Show: SmackDown, Aug. 27, 2015

The Bulgarian Brute attempts to co-exist with The World's Largest Athlete against The Big Guy and The Showoff.

Big Show and Rusev weren’t exactly on the same page on Raw in their Eight-Man Tag Team Match and not much changed when they teamed together on SmackDown against Dolph Ziggler & Ryback. The massive duo seemed to be on the verge of victory when The World’s Largest Athlete hit The Showoff with the KO Punch, but The Super Athlete took it upon himself to tag into the match and lock in The Accolade on his rival.

That decision didn’t sit well with the giant Superstar, who proceeded to KO Punch The Bulgarian Brute as he was applying his finishing maneuver, allowing Ziggler to pick up the pinfall victory for his team.

Sheamus def. Dean Ambrose

Dean Ambrose vs. Sheamus: SmackDown, Aug. 27, 2015

The Lunatic Fringe goes to war against The Celtic Warrior.

Just when it appeared that Dean Ambrose had turned the tables on Sheamus in their hard-hitting main event fight, The Wyatt Family’s creepy entrance call rang out as Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Braun Strowman appeared, surrounding the ring. The disturbance allowed The Celtic Warrior to hit a distracted Ambrose with the Brogue Kick for the victory.

The menacing Wyatt trio slowly stalked a fallen Ambrose before Roman Reigns’ music hit. The Big Dog exploded out of nowhere to Superman Punch Luke Harper before stepping up to The Wyatt Family’s “Black Sheep.” The powerhouse Reigns would end up getting overpowered by “The New Face of Destruction,” though, as he locked in his brutal submission before sending the former Shield muscle crashing to the mat.
