WWE SmackDown Results (8/20) – Phoenix, AZ – We are live from the Footprint Center in Phoenix, AZ, as Edge makes his way to the ring to open the show. Before Edge can say anything, we have a video package recapping the recent events between him and Seth Rollins.
Edge sits down in the ring and he looks around. Edge tells Seth he saw what he said last week. He heard what you said. I really heard what you said. It sat with me. Your boot on the back of my neck. My face mashed into that briefcase. I know it was 2014, but I feel it like it was yesterday. I was worried. I was worried about my way of life, my wife, and my kids. Last week, you threatened all of those things again. Edge says that he knows what that Curb Stomp can do to him. He has a triple fusion on my neck. If you hit that Curb Stomp, it probably ends my career. It affects the type of father that I can be. I get it that you threatened those things but that is the mind game you play with Edge. Edge says he knows those are mind games, except with you Seth.
I take my cues from the eyes and you mean everything that you say. You are an all time talent and I will never take it away from you. You have pushed me into a dark place. You have pushed me into a place I don’t like to go because it is so hard to come back. Because, if I am being truthful, it is because I like it. You have made me find a place in my heart where the blood runs black. He says he sees clearly. He sees that at SummerSlam, he doesn’t just have to beat you, I have to break you. I have to humble you. Edge says he is going to burn you down.

In the Arena:
We are back and Universal Champion Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring with Paul Heyman. John Cena is out next.
Roman says that Cena knows this. A lot of people say a lot of things to him. A lot of stupid things. That is exactly what John did last week. He said a lot of dumb stuff. They reacted because you said it with energy. Roman says he won’t allow this man to lie to you and misinform you. He thinks he can pin me, 1-2-3. Roman asks Paul when was the last time he lost. Paul says no one has beaten THIS Roman Reigns. Roman says there you have it.
John says he won’t let this go along. He says people are making their choice. John says that the impossible is possible, except for you. You are the champ and you are pulled in a million directions. I came back a month ago and everyone was excited. If a month ago, I asked everyone who would win and everyone would say Roman Reigns because I am filming a movie. John says he is here to take the championship from you and make the movie so you have to be here as a shell of yourself and a failure. I am not saying you are great, but you have lost control. You need to be brought down to Earth and that is 1-2-3. Are you really that naive you couldn’t see the signs. Summer of Cena? A flimsy contract in a blue sharpie? Is that legal. I am not here to promote a movie, I am here to demote your ass. This match was made for me. I tell people the same thing for 20 years, Never Give Up. The reason you are so frustrated is that is all I have to do tomorrow. You get distracted, 1.2.3. You make a mistake, 1-2-3. 1-2-3 equals 17 and I will break the record.
Thanks to Roman Reigns. Tomorrow will not have a resident Universal Champion until Wrestlemania in Dallas. The impossible will happen when THE CHAMP IS HERE thanks to Roman Reigns.
Roman says that John doesn’t get it. You have been busy. I get it. You should have smartened yourself up before you came back. When people come into the ring, I smash them so hard WWE doesn’t have a use for you. Do you think I can’t go to Hollywood and make movies and commercials? Do you think you are better than me? It’s Vegas so let’s raise the stakes. Either I leave that stadium as Universal Champion or I am leaving WWE.
Cena shakes his head and smiles. Reigns offers his hand to shake on the stipulation. Cena shakes his hand but Reigns tries to turn it into an Attitude Adjustment. Cena counters and turns that into a roll-up but Reigns kicks out just before the 1-2-3. Cena rolls to the floor and taunts Reigns with the “you can’t see me” from the stage. An angry Reigns looks on from the ring. Cena stands tall on the entrance and raises his arms in the air as the final SmackDown before SummerSlam goes off the air.
