WWE Smackdown (4/18) Results: Batista Vs. Sheamus


[Show: WWE Smackdown] [Location: Nashville, Tenn] [Date: 4/18/14]

Welcome to
WWE Smackdown, Triple H comes down to the ring to kick things off. He
says that
part of his job is to find the greatest talent around the world and
him succeed. He says that the Shield is the group of talented he has
ever seen
in many years. He gave them power, maybe he gave him too much power.
When you
have power, you try to find out how far your power can take you.
However, when
you find that line that you do not have enough power to get across and
Shield crossed the line. They paid for crossing that line. A video
package is
shown on how we got to this point with him and the Shield. Triple H says
they can move past all this, all they had to do is beg his forgiveness.
Instead, they have been silent and then Roman Reigns said that Kings do
not win wars,
soldiers do. He says that is not reality, the soldiers are the currency
on empires
that are bought and sold. He says that their value is gone, at Extreme
the Shield will step into the ring with Evolution. They return at
Extreme Rules
to show what real destruction and power really is.
