The April 9, 2015 Edition of Smackdown is a Professional wrestling television show of the WWE's Smackdown brand, which took place on April 7, 2015 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.


Just 17 days before Extreme Rules, SmackDown featured a special cinematic edition of “Miz TV,” The New Face of Fear's first post-Phenom showdown, hot Divas action and an explosive six-man slugfest.

Daniel Bryan kicked off SmackDown, pulling no punches on the recent nefarious actions of both Sheamus & Bad News Barrett. But before he could finish his conversation with the WWE Universe, The Celtic Warrior and Barrett interrupted to attempt a “European-style arse kicking.”

While the outspoken Dolph Ziggler emerged to even the odds, he quickly found himself “eclipsed” by the arrival of Big Show. That was until Roman Reigns opted to join the party as well. And despite a warning by The World's Largest Athlete, The Big Dog wasted little time unleashing his attack — sparking a 3-on-3 brawl between the six Superstars and ultimate leading to the expulsion of the bigger competitors from the ring.

Moments later, Big Show and Reigns were added to what was originally scheduled to be a tag team main event. Accordingly, Ziggler, Reigns & Bryan would go head-to-head with Big Show, Barrett & Sheamus!

Prior to their tag team match, Big E and his New Day cohorts attempted to give the WWE Universe a “motivational speech” in an effort to get the fans in the corner. In spite of their efforts, the faction's positive message was met with a noticeable chant of “New Day sucks” from the Dallas crowd.

In their subsequent match against WWE Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Tyson Kidd, the ill-willed chants continued. Then, in the height of The New Day's frustration, order completely broke down. This paved the way for Cesaro to hit an uppercut from outside the ring, setting up Kidd to hit a vicious neckbreaker for the three-count.

Though he channeled the immortal Hulk Hogan and informed the WWE Universe that #Axelmania will live forever, Curtis Axel didn't have much luck in his rematch against Neville. The Man That Gravity Forgot triumphed in his SmackDown debut with the help of his incredible Red Arrow finishing maneuver.

Things turned volatile as Natalya, Cameron and Alicia Fox discussed Monday's No. 1 Contender's Divas Battle Royal and #GiveDivasAChance with Renee Young.

Moments after a brawl Natalya took on Alicia during a backstage interview, the two Divas squared off with Cameron serving as special guest referee. And though The Queen of Harts would make her foxy opponent tap-out to the family Sharpshooter, Cameron ultimately stood tall by delivering a surprise post-match DDT to both competitors.

Two weeks after facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania, Bray Wyatt prepared to return to action with energetic rant, aimed at his former Wyatt Family disciple Erick Rowan.

In the highly personal contest that followed, The Eater of World “taught one last lesson” to Rowan, nearly taking off his opponent's head with a vicious clothesline outside the ring and finishing him with Sister Abigail for the victory.

In honor of his new film “The Marine 4: Moving Target,” — scheduled for release Friday on Digital HD and April 21 on DVD and Blu-ray — The Miz presented a special edition of his controversial show to praise ... himself.

But after his co-star Summer Rae interrupted to debate her own contribution to the film, the subject moved to Damien Mizdow. When Miz's former employee emerged, the A-Lister offered him a chance to apologize and say he was sorry. Mizdow did just that, before knocking The Awesome One out of the ring, destroying the “Miz TV” set and planting a surprise celebratory kiss on Summer Rae.

In the height of the colossal Six-Man Tag Team Match, Roman Reigns delivered a pair of Superman Punches that sent Big Show off the apron to the ringside floor and Bad News Barrett to the canvas.

When Sheamus broke up a pin-attempt by the black-clad powerhouse, Dolph Ziggler sent Sheamus flying over the top rope. Then, moments after Daniel Brian hit the reengaging World's Largest Athlete with a Running Knee off the apron, Reigns countered Barrett's Bull Hammer attempt with a mega Spear for the victory.
