Shares 0

WWE taped this week’s Smackdown tonight from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. Thanks to Wrestling News World correspondent JP for sending in results. Below are full results:

Smackdown (Airing Friday on SyFy):

* David Otunga opens the show by introducing the new Smackdown General Manager, John Laurinaitis, who now has music and a TitanTron. He says everyone is excited for his debut on Smackdown and talks about how exciting it will be. He asks Teddy Long to come out. Teddy says that the benefit of him being without a job is that he can tell Johnny to go to hell. He says that he could not just walk away from Smackdown, despite not working there anymore. He calls it the best job of his life and thanks the WWE Universe. He says he hopes they've had as much fun as he has had. Teddy goes to leave but Laurinaitis stops him and says that Teddy rudely interrupted him. He offers Teddy a job. Teddy says that he needs a job, but not one from him. He says that Johnny can take his job and shove it. Laurinaitis says to think of Teddy's grandchildren. Otunga says he looked at the paperwork and WWE granted college funds to his grandchildren, and that the funds go to the Smackdown General Manager. Johnny says that if Teddy takes the job, all he has to do is say that Johnny is better than him. Teddy says that Johnny is better than him. Laurinaitis says to say it louder, then tells him to go backstage and do his job. Teddy asks what it is, and Laurinaitis says that he hasn't figured it out yet.

* Laurinaitis sends Teddy to the back and announces that, in the interest of People Power, Kane vs. Randy Orton tonight will be a no disqualification match. In addition, he announces R-Truth vs. Mark Henry & David Otunga in a handicap match, which will be next.

* David Otunga & Mark Henry b. R-Truth after Henry hit the World's Strongest Slam and Otunga got the pin.

* Randy Orton b. Kane in a no disqualification match after Orton countered the chokeslam by pushing Kane into an exposed turnbuckle. Orton then hit an RKO to win, in what was described as a very good match.

* Barry Stevens, a local talent from Queens, New York, is introduced to the crowd. Some of the lower-card Smackdown talent are shown laughing at him. Ryback's music hits. Skip Sheffield has returned.

* Ryback b. Barry Stevens in a squash, with a high-angle fisherman's suplex.

* Daniel Bryan & AJ come to the ring. Bryan says that if there was one good thing this week, it was that it allowed him to think about how everything was going so right, and how it has gone so wrong. He says "The truth is..." before pausing. AJ takes the mic and calls him a great wrestler and a great person and says that she isn't the only one who thinks that. She points out all the "YES" signs and how his name is chanted when he's not in the ring and how we are all here to support him. Bryan says it feels like everyone is mocking him. He says that if people were supporting him, they wouldn't cheer "YES" for The Rock. He calls the people sheep. He says it makes it worse that AJ cost him the title. He says he beat two giants in a cage and he overcame 5 people in the Elimination Chamber, but her kiss flushed it all down the toilet. He says that AJ doesn't get to rewrite this story, and it is all her fault. He says that it was his first WrestleMania and he walked in as World Heavyweight Champion. Her clinginess cost him the greatest night of his life. He will never let her ruin his life like that again.

* Bryan says he has a rematch clause with Sheamus and he will do it the right way: alone. He tells her to get into her SUV and go eat some cheeseburgers as he gets rid of the dead weight. He says they are through and that was the last kiss that she'll ever get from him. She tries to reason with him but he tells her to get out and turns his back on her as she goes to the back crying.

* Big Show b. Heath Slater in a non-title squash. Cody Rhodes was on commentary. Cody was about to enter the ring, but decided against it. Show hit Slater with the WMD and Cody retreated.

* Backstage, John Laurinaitis is talking to The Bella Twins. Sheamus walks in and asks what Laurinaitis wanted to talk to him about. Laurinaitis calls out Sheamus for being disrespectful to people like Daniel Bryan and Alberto Del Rio by kicking them when they weren't ready. He says that when he wrestles Del Rio, they need to come face-to-face first. Sheamus says that Laurinaitis is right and tells him a story about a bully he knew, which Laurinaitis was not happy with.

* Nikki Bella b. Beth Phoenix in a non-title match after Kelly Kelly distracted Beth at ringside. Nikki capitalized and hit an X-Factor to win.

* Damien Sandow, an FCW talent, appeared via the TitanTron and cut a promo talking about people's moral quality and calling them out on it.

* The Three Stooges are announced as the guest hosts for next week's Raw Supershow.

* Alberto Del Rio b. Sheamus by disqualification to earn a future title shot. Ricardo Rodriguez got onto the apron and Sheamus pulled the ropes, sending him into the ring. Del Rio got a chair and tried to use it, but Sheamus stopped him. The referee turned around, saw Sheamus holding the chair, and disqualified him. Sheamus then hit the referee with a Brogue Kick and stared at Del Rio and Rodriguez, who had retreated up the ramp, to end the show.

    Daniel Bryan! *Clap-clap clap-clap-clap!*

    Fingers crossed that between last night on Raw and Smackdown's airing that WWE writers did something with Bryan, I really hope he can break out as a tweener, I can't help but think Richard is right when he says McMahon always has a plan when he approves of something like burying Daniel, it's wishful thinking as far as I'm concerned, but I hope even if Bryan was intended to be buried that we the people have shown him wrong (again)

    Era of People Power!

    • BrooksOglesby

      I asked the correspondent in Orlando, and although they're not at the level they were on Raw, there are still a lot of "YES" chants.

      I think I can speak for us all when I say YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

      • Jay

        Awe 🙁

        Do you mean to say that it is as tame as ordinary Raw crowds, or somewhere in between ordinary and last night? I am going to be disappointed if the crowd is dead, I am very curious to hear what happens with Bryan tonight since he is supposed to explain his loss.

        • xChristenLynnx

          Actually from what i notice SD & Raw crowds are always lively but during NXT the crowd is completely dead since they basically have to sit through that before SD tapings begins

  • jdl

    Ryback, huh? Are they referencing his whole future terminator gimmick? 'Cause that worries me.

    • Matt Scott

      Hes been using the Ryback gimmick in FCW and dark matches for a while now.

  • Jay

    Is WWE trying to kill the YES chants?? Not sure if this is the rebirth of Bryan Danielson or a systematic attempt of trying to continue demolishing Daniel Bryan by stripping him of absolutely any worth. I hope he continues chanting YES, which will only make the crowd chant YES, and I don't see why they made him insult the audience, I like the idea of Bryan being a heel and continuing to garner support. But, regardless of what he says, the fans that are fans will continue chanting YES, but I hope this wasn't the end of the YES chant. YES YES YES 🙂

  • thatguy

    Really del rio comes back from an injury to instantly get a title shot? get that garbage out of my face

  • aly

    He hit the REF with a brogue kick? Doesn’t sound very babyface to me…

    • Dan

      I agree. Wondering if he’s going to turn heel and del rio turn face?

    • smoothjj7

      Sheamus isn't a true baby face. He's kind of the badass babyface like the manyothers in history we've had, i.e stone cold. At least that's my impression with what htey want to do with him over how they've really pushed him on the anti bullying campaigns and now his new reign as champ.

  • Ricky

    We are seeing alot of returns and looks like some debuts. This week alone, Lesnar, Del Rio, Ryback (Skip Shefield), Lord Tensai (A-Train) have returned. It looks like Damien Sandow, is going to debut soon. Hopefully, we'll see John Moxley, Kasius Ohno and Claudio in the future.

    • Adam

      Damien Sandow isn't really a debutant.

      His previous WWE run was as Idol Stevens.

  • alejandrizzle

    does anyone know if DANIEL BRYAN came out saying YES!! YES!! YES!! on this episode?? because it would be messed up if management asked him to stop saying YES!! YES!! YES!! just to stop him from getting over with the fans

    • Bob

      I want to know this as well.

  • Joe

    I was there. Lots of yes chants even before the show started. He wrestled the post smackdown dark match and he came out with his yes chant. He even got Mark Henry to chant with him. People loved him. Lots of yes sign as well.

  • H.M.

    I marked out for Del Rio's return but it looks like he's back again, with a WHC title shot pretty much handed to him. What's worse is he's the same bland old self that we were so tired of again… ;/

  • jsgfp

    it seems this week that is a lot of new/returning talents. Lets hope they are not the next Eric Escobar

  • dhg

    anyone know who barry stevens is?

  • Cena Sucks

    Cena trying to say Bryan owes him one was hilarious.

  • Jessie Skys

    Somebody should dive ADR a beating!

  • bill

    bring back armando estrata

  • Laura & Nolan

    Hi, this is Laura & Nolan here giving our comment for the wrestling that we just read and it was terrible. The actions of Daniel Bryan was awful and reprehensible, saying to AJ that it was her fault and her love for him cost him the title and he put himself in this predictable position and nobody told him to be in this position, he was the one that put himself in this situation and we think that Bryan is a total jerk and he should be removed from any organization like WWE and TNA that he decides he wants to be in and as for John Laurainitis he got what he deserved was Teddy Long saying to him that he shoiuld be in hell and Laurainitis should take his job like Long said, shove it straight up his ass and Teddy Long his GM spot because of Eve Torres's interference, lowblowing Zack Ryder and costing Team Teddy the match, Sincerely, Laura & Nolan.

  • ViperDaughter
