WWE is taping this week’s WWE Smackdown tonight from the Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. Below are ongoing results:
WWE Smackdown (Airing on SyFy):
* The show opens with Miz TV. The Miz brings out his guests, Randy Orton & The Big Show. Orton and Big Show talk trash but the segment quickly devolves as Jack Swagger, Alberto Del Rio, Mark Henry, and Sheamus come to the ring, one after another. Everyone hypes their match, but when Henry talks about the strap match, Sheamus grabs a strap. The faces then clear the ring. Teddy Long comes out to announce that Del Rio, Orton & Sheamus will be facing Big Show, Henry & Swagger in a 6-man tag team match tonight.
* Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns b. The Usos. The Shield attacked The Usos after the match, but Kofi Kingston ran to the ring holding a chair to make the save. The Usos & Kingston then cut a short promo on The Shield.
* Backstage, Damien Sandow approaches Teddy Long and pitches his own talk show: “The Damien Sandow Show.” The Miz interrupts, and Teddy sets up a match between the two later tonight.
* Tons of Funk b. The Prime Time Players
* Chris Jericho b. Antonio Cesaro by submission with the Walls of Jericho. After the match, Fandango’s music played and Summer Rae danced on the stage. Jericho turned his attention to her, allowing Fandango to attack him from behind. Jericho fought Fandango off and hit Cesaro with a Code Breaker.
* A promo from Zeb Colter & Jack Swagger plays on the Tron. Colter claims that Alberto Del Rio is not a real American. He accuses Dolph Ziggler of not really being injured, just afraid of facing Swagger. He says that real Americans don’t quit, but Del Rio will. Swagger ends the promo by shouting “We the People.”
* The Miz b. Damien Sandow by submission with the Figure Four Leglock.
* Kaitlyn b. Aksana
* Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton & Sheamus b. The Big Show, Mark Henry & Jack Swagger. Orton hit an RKO on Swagger to get the win for his team. Sheamus hit Big Show with a Brogue Kick and the faces celebrated to end the show.
