WWE Smackdown (Airing on SyFy):
* The show opens in the ring with the latest edition of MizTV. The Miz‘s guests this week are Sheamus and Randy Orton. They begin to discuss whether they should add The Big Show to their team for their match at WrestleMania 29. Sheamus admits that he saved them on Raw, but he still doesn’t trust him. Orton notes that he doesn’t trust anybody. The Big Show comes to the ring, and The Miz says that he still doesn’t trust Big Show after their tag team dissolved. Big Show takes a mic and makes his case for why he should be added to the team. Booker T comes out and decides to put Orton, Sheamus & Big Show into a 6-man tag team match tonight in order to determine whether they can function as a team.
* Mark Henry b. Zack Ryder. After the match, Henry continued hitting Ryder with World’s Strongest Slams until Ryback made the save. Ryback clotheslined Henry, causing Henry to retreat.
* Backstage, Teddy Long asks Booker T what he thinks about Ryback vs. Mark Henry at WrestleMania 29. Booker says he doesn’t like that Teddy worked with Vickie Guerrero to make the match, since he works for him. Teddy says that Booker’s Hall of Fame induction changed him.
* Dolph Ziggler w/ Big E Langston b. Kofi Kingston. AJ Lee was on commentary for the match. After the match, Big E attacked Kofi.
* Backstage, Sheamus & The Big Show argue about their match tonight.
* Jack Swagger & Zeb Colter make their way to the ring to cut a promo. Colter says that Swagger’s attack on Ricardo Rodriguez was nothing compared to what will happen to Alberto Del Rio at WrestleMania 29. He also says that the attack on Rodriguez was a warning to anyone else who disagreed with them. Swagger began shouting “We the people!” until Chris Jericho‘s music hit.
* Jack Swagger b. Chris Jericho. During the match, Fandango came out, eventually distracting Jericho and allowing Swagger to get the win. After the match, Fandango attacked Jericho and hit him with a leg drop from the top turnbuckle. He then reminded Jericho how to say his name.
* Backstage, Matt Striker interviews The Big Show about whether Sheamus can trust him. The Big Show says that they’ve all been attacked by The Shield, so they can trust each other.
* Brodus Clay & Tensai w/ Cameron & Naomi vs. Team Rhodes Scholars w/ The Bella Twins ended when The Bella Twins attempted to interfere, distracting Brodus. This led to the Funkadactyls attacking them. Brodus, Tensai, & The Funkadactyls danced in the ring to celebrate after the match.
* Backstage, Matt Striker interviews Sheamus & Randy Orton about whether they can trust The Big Show.
* The Miz b. Antonio Cesaro by submission with the Figure Four Leglock. Wade Barrett was on commentary for the match. After the match, The Miz reapplied the submission hold while inviting Barrett into the ring. Barrett chose to walk away.
* Randy Orton, Sheamus & The Big Show b. 3MB. Big Show hit a WMD, but Sheamus tagged in and got the win for the team. As they argued, The Shield appeared. They attempted to enter the ring, but Orton, Sheamus & Show wouldn’t let them, so they retreated to end the show.
