WWE taped this week’s Smackdown from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Thanks to Wrestling News World reader Wes Branscum for sending in results. Below are full taping results:

Smackdown (Airing tonight on SyFy)

* The show starts off with The Peep Show, hosted by Christian. Christian brings out John Laurinaitis & Teddy Long. Christian asks each GM why they want him to be a part of their team at WrestleMania XXVIII. Christian then tells Long that he wants one more match for the World Heavyweight Championship, but Teddy says he has to earn it. Laurinaitis says that if he joins his team, he’ll get the match, so Christian joins Laurinaitis’ team. Teddy responds by putting Christian in a match. Laurinaitis objects, so Teddy puts David Otunga in a match against Kofi Kingston.

* Kofi Kingston w/ Santino Marella b. David Otunga with the Trouble in Paradise. Christian was ejected from ringside mid-match.

* A video segment with Daniel Bryan & AJ plays. Bryan insults her, then kisses her to make up for it.

* AJ w/ Daniel Bryan b. Nikki Bella w/ Brie Bella

* Cody Rhodes is interviewed by Matt Striker. Rhodes calls Big Show a “choke artist,” and says that he’ll prove it at WrestleMania.

* Cody Rhodes b. The Great Khali

* Randy Orton cuts a promo on Kane. He wants to know why Kane is after him. He says that he isn’t John Cena. He doesn’t rise above hate. He calls Kane out. Kane comes out to the stage and shows a video of a match between the two from last summer, in which they shook hands afterwards. Kane says that it made him sick and weak, and informs Orton that that Kane is gone. Kane says he wants closure. Orton calls Kane to the ring, but Kane says that he’ll end Orton at WrestleMania.

* Big Show b. Drew McIntyre with the WMD in a squash match.

* Mark Henry b. Yoshi Tatsu

* Chris Jericho cuts another promo before his match bashing CM Punk‘s father. He calls Punk a wannabe once again, then attempts to start a “CM Drunk” chant.
