My thoughts –
This episode of Smackdown was very well put together for Fast Lane.  I am very interested in this new feud between Dean Ambrose and Bad News Barrett.  These are two great wrestlers who are no strangers to championships.  I thought it was great when they scrolled the funny bad news during BNZ.  I cannot get enough of Bray Wyatt’s eerie promos.   Who was he talking to?  Rumor has it that he’s sending a message to The Undertaker.  Are the rumors true?  Is this a set up for a Wrestlemania 31 match between Bray Wyatt and The Undertaker?  I normally do not focus on the rumors spreading on the internet but I would love to see these two enigmatic superstars go at it in the near future.  What a Handicap match at the end.  Daniel Bryan was phenomenal fighting off Rollins and J&J Security.  I was very impressed with the performance of Daniel Bryan. — Lisa Williams
