Friday Night SmackDown Results 6/6: After turning his back on his “brothers” Monday with the help of a brutal chair assault, Seth Rollins kicked off SmackDown with WWE COO Triple H by his side, offering no explanation for his shocking treachery on Raw, instead choosing to hold his motives close to his black vest.
