*Spoilers* Smackdown Taping Results From Tucson, Arizona

WWE  taped this week’s Smackdown tonight from the Tucson Convention Center in Tucson, Arizona. Below are full results:

WWE Smackdown (Airing Friday on SyFy):

* The Big Show opened the show with an in-ring promo. He felt guilty about what he accidentally did to AJ, and he apologized, which got a nice response from the crowd.. He said that even as a kid, he was responsible for accidentally hurting kids his age due to his size. Now having to revisit that with AJ's trauma, he revealed that he isn't sure he can continue his career as a WWE Superstar. Daniel Bryan interrupted, drawing boos from the crowd. Bryan verbally assaulted Show and talked about AJ still being in the hospital because of him. Bryan then slapped Show, which made Show push Bryan into a corner. Before a brawl fully broke out, Mark Henry interrupted them and reminded the two of the triple threat cage match at the Royal Rumble. He said that they need to be worrying about that. Teddy Long then appeared on the ramp and announced The Big Show vs. Mark Henry for tonight.

* Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes b. Justin Gabriel in a non-title match.

* Santino Marella and Teddy Long are backstage. Santino proposes a tag team with himself and Yoshi Tatsu, aptly named "Santoshi," before Drew McIntyre walks in. Long informs McIntyre that this is his last chance, and he must face Sheamus tonight.

* Sheamus b. Drew McIntyre with a Brogue Kick.

*WWE Tag Team Champions Epico & Primo b. Santino Marella & Yoshi Tatsu in a non-title match.

* In a backstage segment, Daniel Bryan tells Mark Henry that he respects him, and that he knows that Big Show is no match for him. He tells Henry that he should send a message by really hurting him tonight.

* Wade Barrett went to the ring to cut a promo on Randy Orton's return. He confirmed that Orton was returning tonight, but that Barrett had made him into a broken man. Orton then came out to a big pop, leading to the next match.

* Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett ended in a no contest. As soon as Orton got to the ring he attacked Barrett. Officials ran down to try to break up the brawl, to no avail. Several lower-card Superstars ran down to break it up as well, but received RKOs from Orton as Barrett escaped.

* Hunico w/ Camacho b. Ted DiBiase. After the match, Hunico and Camacho assaulted DiBiase, focusing on his injured wrist.

* "Funkasaurus" Brodus Clay b. Alex Riley

* Aksana b. Natalya with a roll-up. After the match, Natalya put Aksana in the Sharpshooter, but Tamina made the save. Tamina then hit Natalya with a Samoan drop and a Superfly Splash.

* The Big Show b. Mark Henry by countout after Henry walked away from the match. Daniel Bryan was ringside, and after the match, he grabbed a chair and attacked Big Show with it. He then applied the LeBell Lock, but Show broke out of it and hit a chokeslam on Bryan.

    Loving the Daniel Bryan heel turn

  • Too bad it’s all scripted.

    • Zack

      WHAAAAAT wrestling is scripted?!

    • Diego

      Oh my God!!! wrestling is scripted? nooooo i thought it was real, God!! This is the worst thing ever happened to me, all my child dreams had been broken.. Oh God :'(

      • chelu671

        Still Real to me dang it.


    • wnwdotcom2

      Wrestling's scripted?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    • XKonn247

      You are in very foreign water here.

    • Logan_Walker


  • jdl

    Who in the hell did Natalya piss off to lose to Aksana of all people?

    • Christen

      Aksana is actually a pretty solid performer she did great in FCW

      • jdl

        Aksana is a newbie who hits on the GM. Natalya is a former champion, she shouldn't be jobbing to Aksana even if she's "pretty solid", Natalya is the best female wrestler the company has.

    • rogstab

      Well put.

    • Patrick_Peralta

      Well look at Orton he has been loseing lately and putting people over , over the past year … I mean everyone former champion or not has a job of putting people over wiether they are new to the company or been around a while.

      No matter if they are building them for a title shot or not..

    • Adam W.

      She probably pissed off Teddy Long…


  • mth

    What a strange thing to say. It's pro wrestling, it's all scripted.

  • Mohammad Abulawi

    whoa i forgot that a-ry was still in wwe. and didn’t mcintyer get “fired” last week

    • vivalajady

      remember drew knows people at the top

      • ken

        Drew doesn't know anybody at the top and if he did, he'd have been World Champion by now. This is nothing more that a humbling process to deffate whatever ego he's got. It worked for MVP and Swagger and I believe at one point, even Randy Orton. Simple truth.

        • XKonn247

          Yea Randy got it after beating Benoit at SummerSlam.

  • Harry

    Good Seein the Viper Return now Wade Cant Win the Royal Rumble

    • XKonn247

      Can he not? Whys that then?

    • ViperDaughter

      Cant wait too!!! =) GO RANDY

  • Swieb

    Who is with Hunico??

  • Joan

    poor Drew…smh…Natalya lost again? wtf?

  • Matt

    I love Daniel Bryan but his character is just so boring.

  • H.M.

    So wait…A-Ry is jobbing to Brodus now? I'm guessing he's just another low-card heel? Kinda lame considering where he was a year ago.

    • Lin

      Last I saw, Riley was a face. I guess they just people they considers jobbers against him. Poor, poor. Riley.

    • Caitlin

      I agree with you! Why is Ary just not being used properly?

      • XKonn247

        Wasn’t he asked to work on his in ting skills?

    • Alex

      He’s is a low card face

    • rogstab

      So true.

  • Terra Ryzing

    When’s the last time Natalya won a match?

  • Caitlin

    Makes no sense why Natalya has been losing… And don’t really see Beth with her anymore??

    • Guy Landau

      Do you see Beth regardless? It's been a month now that the Divas champ not only hasn't defended her title; She hasn't been on T.V.

      I believe she had 1 match on Superstars, and that's about it.

  • thatguy

    another roll up? really?

  • Mrpopandlock

    A-ryacutally has been working as face on superstars

  • rogstab

    So I guess it will be Tamina getting the next shot at Beth's belt. Hope it's not on Superstars (where Beth wrestles this week).

  • @jblack424

    C. ouple things first wasn’t ary getting pushed as a top face 10 months ago on raw? Then dissappears to come back on smackdown jobbing? Riley a talent on the mic needs ring work but not terrible. 2.why not just erase diva wrestling if nattie and beth get joke jobs while eve sucks on my tv when they could be wm 28 match and a good one. I like hot chicks and all but if you have talented women use them. I believe they got rid of womens title cause they didn’t want it to be tarnished cause the best women ever held that when women wrestling mattered. 3.poor drew and ted. I like to see them tag up as I think they would have potential to become better star power and potential to be a elite tag in all of wrestling if used right. Ted buys drew contract to help him with hunico. Ted and drew defeat them and win tag title shots.

  • Dangerous Lee

    Another diva roll up?!?!? I can’t take it anymore!!!!

    • ViperDaughter

      I hate that too man. I hate when someone wins by roll ups they make me sick.

  • Are u serious bro wrestling is all fake always has always will VERY rare a star will say things he shouldn’t like CM Punks shoot promo that was 25% real and 75% fake idiots

  • fletch

    Seems like an interesting show this week. Hopefully the rumble will b a good show leading up til wm.

  • Karen Church

    Daniel Bryan is just another heel using a woman to help him keep a title. Think about it I watched when the Big Show leveled AJ and Daniel Bryan ran around her. He’s the one who put her in that position so he should share the blame instead of putting it all the Big Show.

    • paul

      its called an angle. yes he did get out of the way, yes he should take blame but as a heel its making people dislike him just as you are doing. that means the angle is working

  • ViperDaughter

    Can't wait for Smackdown this week. I told ya. Randy is going to beat Wade Barrett badly. I wish that Randy wins the Royal Rumble this year and Big Show wins the World Heavyweight Championship. I never seen Askana fight for first time. Glad she win.

    I work in an afterschool program with elementry school kids. As I question the Brodus Clay gimmick, recently these kids love him. Running around saying “my bad” & “should I get him?”
