Relying on an Old Friend.
The 803rd edition of WWE Friday Night SmackDown came to you from the Laredo Energy Arena in Laredo, TX. On the final SmackDown before Friday night’s hottest show moves to Thursdays, the man behind the re-emergence of The Authority, Seth Rollins, would kick off SmackDown. What will the self-proclaimed “future of WWE” have to say about being added to the WWE World Heavyweight Title match at the Royal Rumble two weeks from Sunday?
SmackDown would also see the WWE Tag Team Titles defended as, after defeating The Miz & Damien Mizdow on last week’s RAW to become two-time WWE Tag Team Champions, The Usos would defend the gold against both The Miz & Damien Mizdow and Gold & Stardust in a Triple Threat Tag Match, where the first member of a team to score a pinfall or submission will win the match for his team and ensure that his team walks out as the WWE Tag Team Champions.
- Big E (with Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston) def. Adam Rose (with Cesaro & Tyson Kidd) by pin following the Big Ending.
- The Ascension def. two local competitors by Konnor pinning one of the local competitors following the Fall of Man.
