*Spoilers* Smackdown Taping Results From Columbus, Ohio

WWE taped this week’s Smackdown tonight from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Thanks to Wrestling News World reader Wes Branscum for sending in results. Below are full taping results:

Smackdown (Airing Friday on SyFy)

* The show starts off with The Peep Show, hosted by Christian. Christian brings out John Laurinaitis & Teddy Long. Christian asks each GM why they want him to be a part of their team at WrestleMania XXVIII. Christian then tells Long that he wants one more match for the World Heavyweight Championship, but Teddy says he has to earn it. Laurinaitis says that if he joins his team, he’ll get the match, so Christian joins Laurinaitis’ team. Teddy responds by putting Christian in a match. Laurinaitis objects, so Teddy puts David Otunga in a match against Kofi Kingston.

* Kofi Kingston w/ Santino Marella b. David Otunga with the Trouble in Paradise. Christian was ejected from ringside mid-match.

* A video segment with Daniel Bryan & AJ plays. Bryan insults her, then kisses her to make up for it.

* AJ w/ Daniel Bryan b. Nikki Bella w/ Brie Bella

* Cody Rhodes is interviewed by Matt Striker. Rhodes calls Big Show a “choke artist,” and says that he’ll prove it at WrestleMania.

* Cody Rhodes b. The Great Khali

* Randy Orton cuts a promo on Kane. He wants to know why Kane is after him. He says that he isn’t John Cena. He doesn’t rise above hate. He calls Kane out. Kane comes out to the stage and shows a video of a match between the two from last summer, in which they shook hands afterwards. Kane says that it made him sick and weak, and informs Orton that that Kane is gone. Kane says he wants closure. Orton calls Kane to the ring, but Kane says that he’ll end Orton at WrestleMania.

* Big Show b. Drew McIntyre with the WMD in a squash match.

* Mark Henry b. Yoshi Tatsu

* Chris Jericho cuts another promo bashing CM Punk‘s father. He calls Punk a wannabe once again, then attempts to start a “CM Drunk” chant.

* Chris Jericho b. Sheamus by countout after Daniel Bryan interfered and attacked Sheamus while he was outside the ring. Sheamus ended up hitting him with a Brogue Kick and pointing at the WrestleMania sign to end the show.

    Christian is on the Wrestlemania card.Hell yeah.

  • JamieSNZ

    AJ had a match! Yes! Yes! Yes!

  • Joe

    Kane vs Randy Orton is now official, and this is the strongest WrestleMania line-up in a long time…I can't wait for WrestleMania!!!!

    • John

      I agree, WrestleMania XXVIII will be awesome and this is a MAJOR improvement from last year's poor excuse of a WrestleMania.

      I'm looking forward to EVERYTHING on this card.

      • craig

        Just think they only had to waste wrestlemania 27 to build 28

  • Jay

    Guessing McIntyre will get his push after Mania.

    Hoping D-Bry wrestles tonight, post WM= Christian vs. Sheamus? Punk?

  • dusty588

    I really hope AJ screws Bryan out of the title at WM!

  • Sami

    Kane wants closure? and no more? so is this saying its going to be Kanes last match at wrestlemania?! :-S or is it just me reading it wrong?

    • H.M.

      I believe he meant, closure to the angle, the seeds of which as we now know were planted in July when Kane and Orton had what I recall to have been a very good No DQ match which Orton won(right before that match Kane cut a backstage promo of how 'human' he had become and made known his intention to 'exorcise' his humanity which of course led to Kane returning re masked in December), After shaking hands, Henry attacked Kane and 'took' him out for about 5-6 months as you remember.

      The short answer is no it doesn't seem to be his last match. ;P

        Shut up

        • Jessie Skys

          You shut up!

          • Evil Kevyn

            Shutuppa with the shutuppas! Now my dog won't shutuppa!!

  • Joe

    Has anyone else noticed the trend that many of the better superstars right now that have main event status are working as a heel, while the best faces are mid-card talent? Just look at each GM’s team. Besides Otunga, Big Johnny’s team is stacking up with main event talent like Mark Henry and Christian, and probably Alberto Del Rio, while Teddy’s team has Santino, probably Kofi, R-Truth, and Zack Ryder to start. There needs to be more face main event talents.

  • Mr. A.k.A.

    Now Bryan Danielson, excuse me, "Daniel Bryan" is disrespectful to women? Great writing WWE. Im getting tired of them ruining good performers/characters.

  • Joe

    I predict that team JL teams wins then later that day punk beat Jericho as punk is all worn out JL says he’s not done he has another opponent which is christian and Christian beats punk and we get a new champ and a new feud

  • #1 Awesome One

    What roster is Undertaker on? I cannot remember the last time Taker was on Smackdown!

    • smoothjj7

      He's on the WM only roster, cause that's the only time he performs.

  • Cef

    I was on the side where all the cameras are kept and it seemed like the crowd was pulling for Cody in his match, also on our side there was a one more match chant when Christian asked for it, did anyone else in the arena here it? I am just wondering if WWE will cut it out of the show or not.

  • Ryder

    I'm actually pumped for Wrestlemania this year I havent ordered a WWE ppv since 2006 and think I might order it cant wait. And I'm glad Christian has a spot on the card still a peep

  • Hunter

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!- Rhodes over Khali and Christian is back. No! No! No! – McIntrye squashed yet again.

  • Wes Branscum

    I was upset with Rhodes and khali match, Cody is too good to be wasting to
    E with a talent less Cody, several times khali couldn’t properly sell some hits, Ino Cody has Big show at mania but means he doesn’t need to waste time with khali

  • Joe

    I hope Rey mysterio comes back

    • Jora91

      He will and he will be on team Teddy while del rio will be on team jhonny.

  • Nicola

    I like Jericho, However I like CM Punk – so I think that Jericho is going belong the belt and that's just not cool man, CM Punk you stick to your guns man – don't let Jericho get to you.
