WWE taped this week’s Smackdown from the RBC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina. Below are full results:
Smackdown (Airing tonight on SyFy):
* Booker T is interviewed by Josh Mathews to open the show. Booker implies that he’d consider returning to the ring full-time if he wins the Intercontinental Championship. During the interview, Cody Rhodes interrupts and says that Booker won’t get one last run, if that’s the case. He also says that Booker cannot interfere in his match tonight or their match at TLC will be cancelled, and Cody will attempt to have Booker suspended.
* Cody Rhodes b. Daniel Bryan with Cross Rhodes. Cody then stared Booker down, who was back at commentary.
* Alicia Fox b. Natalya with a roll-up.
* Primo & Epico b. The Usos. Rosa Mendes was ringside and distracted one of the Usos when he was on the top turnbuckle, allowing Epico and Primo to win.
* Mark Henry talks with Jack Swagger backstage, saying that if Swagger takes Big Show out tonight, Swagger will be next in line for a shot at his World Heavyweight Championship. Swagger says he’ll do it, but on his own terms. He taunts Henry by reminding him that he’s beaten Big Show in the past, and says that the championship is in his future regardless. Henry storms off.
* Big Show b. Jack Swagger. Mark Henry sat ringside during the match. After the match was over, Henry assaulted Swagger with a chair. He then hit a cameraman in the back with it before leaving. Big Show and officials tended to the cameraman.
* Backstage segment with Zack Ryder & Randy Orton. Ryder wants Orton to do the “Woo woo woo!” chant with him, but Orton won’t. Ryder then asks if Orton would be his “bro”. Orton replies with “Maybe.”
* Ted DiBiase b. Heath Slater. After the match, Jinder Mahal ran out and attacked DiBiase. Teddy Long came out to the ramp and said that if Mahal wants a fight, he can fight someone who he has unfinished business with.
* Sheamus b. Jinder Mahal with a Brogue Kick.
* Randy Orton & Zack Ryder b. Dolph Ziggler & Wade Barrett. Orton hit the RKO on Ziggler to get the pin. Orton and Barrett stared each other down to end the show.
