WWE taped this week’s Smackdown tonight from the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. Thanks to Wrestling News World reader Logan K. Young for sending in results. Below are full results:
WWE Smackdown (Airing Friday on SyFy):
* Teddy Long addresses the crowd and confirms that John Laurinaitis has indeed been fired, and Mick Foley will take his place for the night.
* Big Show announces that he is done with John Cena, and he is instead inserting himself into the upcoming Money in the Bank Ladder match. Brodus Clay interrupts Show, but David Otunga comes out and attacks Clay from behind. Show knocks Clay out with a WMD.
* Ryback b. two jobbers
* Mick Foley & Yoshi Tatsu are backstage. Vickie Guerrero interrupts and announces that she will be the Interim General Manager for Raw and Smackdown next week. She is interrupted by The Great Khali, and the segment devolves into a dance segment with Khali and Foley.
* Alberto Del Rio b. Christian in a non-title match by submission with the cross armbreaker. After the match, Christian was attacked by Cody Rhodes.
* Kane b. Daniel Bryan. AJ acted as the guest timekeeper. Bryan had Kane in a submission hold, and AJ, worried about Kane, rang the bell early. The call was deemed unofficial, but the bell distracted Bryan long enough for Kane to hit the chokeslam.
* Mick Foley came out to cut a promo, but he was interrupted by Heath Slater. This caused Foley to make the next match: Heath Slater vs. Zack Ryder.
* Zack Ryder b. Heath Slater
*Darren Young & Titus O’Neil b. The Usos
* Darren Young & Titus O’Neil are backstage doing their usual “Millions of Dollars!” shtick when they are attacked from behind by Primo & Epico.
* Santino Marella does a Kiss Cam-style segment in which he looks for the best crowd sign. A woman with an “I <3 Santino” sign is picked from the crowd and comes to the ring. She’s wearing a cobra puppet on her hand and kisses Santino’s cobra puppet. Then she kisses Santino and Santino faints. No word on whether or not the segment was just for the live crowd.
* Sheamus b. Dolph Ziggler w/ Vickie Guerrero
