*Spoilers* Smackdown Taping Results From Uncasville, Connecticut

WWE taped this week's Smackdown tonight from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Below are full results:

Smackdown (Airing Friday on SyFy)

* This week's Smackdown is under the control of John Laurinaitis. The first match of the night is a steel cage match for the United States Championship between Santino Marella and Jack Swagger.

* Santino Marella b. Jack Swagger to retain the United States Championship. During the match, Dolph Ziggler attempted to climb into the cage, but Santino used the Cobra on his hands in order to keep him from climbing, and the referee ejected Ziggler. Vickie Guerrero was also at ringside and she attempted to interfere in Swagger's favor, but she accidentally slammed the cage door on him, which gave Santino the opportunity to escape and win.

* Teddy Long meets with John Laurinaitis backstage and pleads with him to call off Kane vs. Aksana. Laurinaitis said no and made another match for tonight: John Laurinaitis vs. Teddy Long, with the winner getting to choose whether Kane vs. Aksana happens.

* Drew McIntyre is in the ring with a microphone. He says that John Laurinaitis gave him a chance to get his job back. All he has to do is face a mystery opponent. The Great Khali comes out, but David Otunga interrupts him and informs Drew that his actual opponent is Hornswoggle.

* Drew McIntyre b. Hornswoggle to get his job back. McIntyre slammed Hornswoggle repeatedly until the referee stopped the match. Khali, who was sitting ringside, brain chopped Drew and carried Hornswoggle to the back.

* Mark Henry b. Ezekiel Jackson

* John Laurinaitis comes to the ring wearing wrestling tights, and Teddy Long follows. Laurinaitis tells him that he should just lay down for him if he wants to save Aksana from Kane.

* Teddy Long b. John Laurinaitis with a roll-up. Kane attempted to interfere in the match, but Randy Orton ambushed him and hit an RKO on him.

* Kofi Kingston & R-Truth b. Primo & Epico in a non-title match.

* Michael Cole gets into the ring and calls Sheamus and Daniel Bryan to the ring. Bryan takes AJ to the ring with him. Cole leads them in an interview about their match at WrestleMania XXVIII. At one point, AJ grabs the microphone and begins to speak, but Bryan tells her to shut up.

* Sheamus, The Big Show, & Randy Orton b. Daniel Bryan, Cody Rhodes, & The Miz. After the match, Kane attacked Orton and they brawled through the crowd. Kane tried to choke Orton out on the outside, then attempted a chokeslam in the ring. Orton countered that and hit an RKO to end the show.

  • JamieSNZ

    Im of 2 minds about the Drew vs Hornswoggle match. On one hand, im happy Drew finally got a win. On the other hand, however, im happy that Hornswoggle got a beating.

    Also, one Champion featured on Smackdown? And its Santino? What the?

    • JamieSNZ

      Whoops spoke too soon.

    • Van

      wow.McIntyre won a match to get his job back and he beat up Hornswoggle.in the words of Daniel Bryan,YES!YES!YES!

  • AJG316

    Thank god that teddy long won

  • Octavio Bazan

    damn i was hoping that its was long vs laurinitis on wrestlemania but now i think it would be santino vs otunga for the us title on wrestlemania

    • BigMike

      so u want a comic relief who actually CAN wrestle but is never allowed to against an ass kisser who CANNOT wrestle although they try to make him think he can yeah that makes sense ……… BTW if u cant figure out which Im referring to U should never call yourself a wrestling fan

  • Well apparently Drew's visa got taken care of

  • Octavio Bazan

    If santino vs otunga happens in wrestlemania they could make it santino and long vs otunga and laurinaitis

  • Devin

    WWE is retarded because they have gay championed dainiel Bryan really and Cody Rhodes wow

    • jcud_theSaint

      no ten year olds allowed, sorry devin

    • Matt Scott

      So you're homophobic and feel using words like "retarded" is acceptable? You're a disgusting "human being"

    • Van

      Daniel Bryan is a great athlete which makes him a great choice to be World Hevyweight Champion although I've never seen a heel character like his current one now and I guarantee Cody Rhodes will be a future WWE Champion or World Heavyweight Champion when they believe the time is right.

      • Cameron Sharpe

        Well if you think about it, he's just a CM Punk re-run.
        Punk: Wins MITB, Cashes in on Jeff Hardy after he just won it, Slowly goes heel, then preaches about beig Straight Edge.
        Danielson: Wins MITB, Cashes in on Big Show after he wins it, Slowly goes heel, then preaches about being Vegan

    • JamieSNZ

      I want to thumbs down this comment every time i see it…

    • Alan

      No WWE is not retarded they got John Cena for your view and Fruity Pebbles for your breakfast. Be thankful, Jimmy. I mean Devin.

  • Jay

    They sure are taking their sweet time to actually begin the Sheamus/Bryan feud.

    Come on, intensify that rivalry already, Boreton vs Kane is far from interesting, where is Christian? He deserves "one more match!" against Orton

    • BigMike

      that one more match crap got real old real fast especially when they used it as the platform for his heel turn all it made Christian do in my eyes was look like a crybaby biyatch just like before he left for TNA

  • Ken Gillis

    It is begining to look more and more like there will be an Orton vs Kane match at Wrestlemania. Wonder if they will make it official after Smackdown on Friday.

  • JDfromNY

    this orton vs kane thing really makes no sense and it just reeks of lazy booking

    • Dan

      It’s simple. They don’t know what to do with them but don’t want to leave them off wm.

    • Chad

      No kidding, obviously they were planning on doing Orton vs Barrett at Mania but that plan got thrown out the window when Barret got hurt. Kane was the replacement.

      • Ellen

        Wade who?

      • Marc

        Barrett was scheduled to win MITB, but it got scraped after he was injured. Orton should have been in a triple threat match for the WHC.

        How in the hell do you want to see Barett vs Orton for WM when it was only smackdown material for the past few months.

  • J-Girl

    what? still no Christian? =/

  • Brandon

    Wow! RKO everywhere and out of nowhere. Always on top and makes Kane looks weak and clueless. the Wonder Bore-ton is back!

    • Gary

      Wow,Boreton. How original. Whats your next original name, CM Puke? The feud with them is only about 2 weeks old.Theres plenty of time for Kane to get even(which Im sure he will on tv next week).God,ever hear of slow builds?"

      Kane sux anyway. Slow,old and past his prime. Thats why they never put him in straight up wrestling matches and always use him in gimmick matches,because he cant wrestle,just brawl..

      • Alan

        I think we only got a few weeks to WrestleMania and yet they didn't announce their match. I don't think a slow build is necessary for a weak and out-of-nowhere feuds.

        The "slow, old and past his prime" Kane is better than Orton anyway. Orton still bores me up besides burying talents like the "agile, younger and not-past-his-prime-yet" Christian and Wade Barrett.

  • H.M.

    I really hope WWE goes in depth with Kane/Orton. I don't want a randomly thrown together feud. Why did Kane attack Orton? What can we expect from these two? I really hope we're not treated to random brawls. I saw enough of that during Kane/Cena and Orton/Barrett.

  • Bryan

    Its sort of just making Kane look like filler to be honest. When Cena didnt have anything going on, they put him in a program with Kane. And now that Orton doesnt have anything, they are throwing him into a fued with Kane too. But what bothers me is that they brought Kane back to be a destructive, monster heel. But they fed him to Cena and now they are feeding him to Orton…makes Kane look weak.

    Just to feed my own ego for a bit, if I were booking I would have had Kane come back into a fued with Undertaker. To me that would have been more interesting than seeing Taker/HHH part 2.

    • Razmos01

      Its hhh vs taker part 3, and having kane against taker would be part 3 to

      • Cameron

        Thank you! Someone else realizes that it's HHH/Taker III

  • bryan

    Having Kane vs Undertaker and Orton vs HHH would have been far more intriguing, at least to me anyways.

    • Ken

      Already been done. Kane/Taker has run it's course as has Orton/HHH.

  • JasonGaza

    Kane vs Orton at wm28 is an excellent idea i love it! But what is the six main raw stars raw guys (Kofi, Ziggler, Jack swagger, Alberto Del Rio, The Miz, and R-Truth) going to do at wm28? along with Christian and Mark Henry

  • Bigbdawg

    I just read that karmas baby died at birth so sad

  • BigMike

    problem with Kane and taker is that althought I would not mind seeing it either and it would give UT the closure from the fued that never finished awhile back with the whole"vegetative state" BS storyline….problem is Kane and Ut have been done more times than HHH/Orton and Cena/ Orton and just aboout every other scenario

  • Gary

    Typical IWC Orton bashers.The Orton-Candy Kane feud(I know,that name is about as original as "Boreton" is)isnt even 2 weeks old and has 3-4 weeks to build for Mania and already Orton has so called 'buried" Kane. Jeez. He needed Truth's help to RKO Kane on Raw. Is that burying someone?

    Orton Im sure will get his next week on the shows to make the feud "even" again. Get a life people.

    • Steve

      Why so serious dude? Is your name Gary Orton or something? Randy's long lost half-brother? Cause you're ticking me as a Kane fan and I'm a fan of Randy too. So, bashing the Orton bashers is as typical as the Orton basher themselves. Get a life dude.

    • Leo

      Nope, Candy Kane is as fake as it gets. Boreton FTW

  • Justin

    Well Kane vs orton and hh vs taker and big show vs Cody and punk vs chris and sheamus vs Bryan and long vs laurntis and possibly truth and Kingston vs primo and epico and Marella vs outnga and cena vs the rockZ and dark match divas championship Beth vs Natalya vs eve vs Kelly Kelly
