*Spoilers* Smackdown Taping Results From Fresno, California

WWE taped this week’s Smackdown tonight from the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California. Below are full results:

WWE Smackdown (Airing Friday on Syfy)

* The show opens with Smackdown General Manager Teddy Long announcing that Randy Orton has been removed from the Smackdown Elimination Chamber due to a concussion suffered on this week’s Raw (more on Orton here).

* The Big Show & The Great Khali b. Wade Barrett & Cody Rhodes. Khali picked up the win with the Punjabi Plunge, and once again got into a post-match confrontation with his partner that ended in Big Show hitting Khali with the WMD.

* Mark Henry, who seems to be back from his suspension, talks to Teddy Long in his office about possibly taking Orton’s spot in the Elimination Chamber. The Big Show interrupts and demands a match against Daniel Bryan tonight. A fight breaks out between Big Show and Henry that trashes the office. Long calls security and attempts to have Big Show removed, but security wants nothing to do with him.

* Hunico b. Ted DiBiase with a roll-up.

* Primo & Epico b. The Usos

* Daniel Bryan comes out to cut a promo. He says that he’ll win the Elimination Chamber match, and that Randy Orton is just scared to face him. He then asks Lilian Garcia to announce him as the winner of their scheduled match by forfeit. Teddy Long interrupts him and announces Orton’s replacement: Sheamus.

* Daniel Bryan b. Sheamus by disqualification. During the match, Bryan spit in Sheamus’ face, causing him to go crazy. The referee tried to restrain him, but he pushed the referee, causing the DQ.

* Cody Rhodes and Wade Barrett are backstage talking to Teddy Long about who’s getting Orton’s spot in the Elimination Chamber. Long announces that a battle royal will be held tonight in order to decide who gets the spot, and both Raw and Smackdown Superstars can compete.

* Jinder Mahal b. Ezekiel Jackson by submission with the Camel Clutch.

* John Laurinaitis met with Teddy Long backstage. Laurinaitis says that the battle royal needs more charisma, so he’s adding David Otunga to the match.

* Tamina & Alicia Fox b. Beth Phoenix & Natalya, with Tamina pinning Natalya.

* Santino Marella won a battle royal to replace Randy Orton in the Smackdown Elimination Chamber. The final four consisted of Drew McIntyre, Ezekiel Jackson, David Otunga, & Santino. Santino celebrated to end the show.

    this pushing of the great khali over guys like cody rhodes or wade barrett is ludicrous !! what the heck is wwe doing???

    • Patrick_Peralta

      making money with Khali…YES Khali is a terrible Wrestler but he is popular in his home country ( Why I don't know or care ) and that in turn makes WWE and Vince money from any merchandise, meet and greet people and many other things they can use to make money off him and bottom line that is the reason like it or not.

      doesn't matter how good or bad a Wrestler is if he makes you money then that is what you want and you will use him and make money…. if that is not important to you then. something is s wrong with you.

    • Logan_Walker

      The Great Khali Has Massive International Value And Very Popular In India and This is Why They Push him

    • Eddie

      well, being an Indian i can say that yes, khali is popular in India though everyone knows that he’s not a good wrestler but its good to hear a punjabi song on wwe whenever he enters.

      but i still think they could hav found another way of making money off him than letting cody and barret suffer.
      And he’s serving no point in the chamber.. anyone can tell he’s not gonna win!!

  • Jon Robertson

    SANTINO?! Are they pushing HIM NOW?!

  • Christen

    lmao are you serious Santino he is better for tag teams but a Championship match? he will just be the first one to be knocked out of the match McIntyre or Otunga would of been better

  • Matt

    What in the world is going on!?

    • jnnnn

      perfectly summed up my thoughts

  • Dustyn

    I'm calling it now, Santino vs Sheamus at WrestleMania! No, It will probably be Sheamus and Bryan, possibly Mark Henry (going back to his feud this past summer with Sheamus)

  • Jon Robertson

    Santino will be replaced by time his entrance hits Sunday. the Kofi from… 2009?

    • Paul

      Hope so.
      Santino is and the great khali in a match for the world title….. On p.p.v……..for £14.99 in the uk……. No thanks.

      • mrcraigyd

        its on sky sports not box office so no 14.99 this time thank god

    • jacko

      it could be drew mcintyre, thats why he had those matches with santino. He might get so annoyed about keep losing to him so attacks him an takes his spot in the chamber. He would get loads of heat and would re-establish him back as a good wrester and prove that he still has a passion for wrestling

    • Herro

      Yup I reckon the peeps will do it if your know what I mean

    • Alejandro

      Exactly what I was thinking.I could see Drew doing it to try and prove he belongs on Smackdown for his storyline.I could even see him lasting till either the final 3 or 2 if he does that.

  • mark3man

    That’s my thoughts. Christian pulling a edge.going for seamus – Christian wrestlemania match. Would be the ultimate tribute to edge for his hof induction.

  • Patrick_Peralta

    I all ready called it Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus for Wrestlemania for the World Title. weeks ago and this time it will NOT be a Dark match.

  • John

    Well, the elimination chamber will be interesting!!

  • eurosario

    I just hope they find the Great Kali and Santino “asleep” when they have to go out to the match.

  • Richie

    I guarantee Santino gets a pintfall over Wade Barrett in the EC

  • Richard McG.

    Given that final four, I would’ve gone with McIntyre. My money says Christian “Kofi’s” Santino on his way to the ring.

  • alvaro

    Who the f”"” is santino? Is it the jobber thag wa
    lks funny I guess the smackdown EC will be a throw away elimination. The raw one is the one to watch the smackdown will be a joke.

  • BigMike

    UGH Otunga in a match for more charisma? the only thing woirse than Otunga's charisma is his wrestling he has the look and the mic skills but he makes vanilla look damn good I swear he is only in the WWE for the hope that he will talk his wife into coming onto the show that has to be the only reason he is still thgere he has ZERO ability unless he is like his "boss" Jhnny Ace and his only ability is his A$$ kissing

  • Nicola

    How dare he say that Orton is to afraid to face him…I hope on Raw or on Smackdown (after this sunday is over) that Bryan come out intacted and with that title coz then Orton challenges him for that title and he loses it to Orton and then we will see who is scared of who.

  • rogstab

    Is anyone else as sick as I am with this Hunico/Dibiase feud?

    • ChromeyDaniels

      Right there with ya.

      • JackBo

        Its getting so boring, every week they have a match! at least get dibiase to go 1on1 with camacho, better still put hunico in the elimination chamber match! he deserves it.

  • Cristina

    Santino? As in the same Santino we see on RAW that makes Eugene look like Einstein by comparison? The guy that walks to the ring like he's shuffling the contents of a dirty diaper in his trunks.THAT Santino? Huh! I didn't know WWE participated in "Pick a name out of hat day" Whoo! Kind of takes my breath away! I really didn't know WWE had it in them to go any lower than the status quo…I think Kharma would've been better. That would've been brand new, and exciting.

  • havoc525

    Ok, do people not see Mark Henry taking out Santino for his spot, or what?

    • eurosario

      No I see him taking out khali not Santino.

  • stoney

    Santino's finisher makes Hulk Hogan's leg drop look like the greatest finisher in the world

  • Rob

    Santino wins the Chamber match!!!!!!

  • RICKY026

    Somebody know the partecipants of theSD Battle royal?

  • sean

    What with all the hate on Santino? I know he doesn't belong in the chamber and will probably get Kofied but he is entertaining and very funny
