WWE taped this week’s WWE Smackdown tonight from the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Below are full results:
WWE Smackdown (Airing on SyFy):
* The show opens with Miz TV. The Miz introduces this week’s guests: Fandango & Summer Rae. The Miz makes fun of Fandango and announces that he is not only hosting Miz TV tonight, but also winning the Intercontinental Championship (the title was not defended on Main Event as advertised). Wade Barrett interrupts, talking down to both Miz & Fandango. Miz & Barrett begin to brawl, which segues into the first match.
* The Miz b. Wade Barrett by disqualification, so Barrett retained the Intercontinental Championship. Fandango was on commentary for the match, and caused a distraction by dancing during the match. The Miz jumped through the ropes, knocking Fandango down. Fandango then kicked Miz through the ropes, which caused the disqualification. Barrett and Fandango beat down Miz, but Barrett then hit Fandango with a Bull Hammer elbow.
* Zeb Colter comes out with Jack Swagger and cuts a promo against the local crowd and about various conspiracies.
* Daniel Bryan w/ Kane b. Jack Swagger w/ Zeb Colter by submission with the No Lock. Bryan breaks the hold, but goes back and locks it back in. Kane breaks the hold and argues with Bryan before Bryan walks away.
