Shares 0

WWE taped this week's Smackdown tonight from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Below are full results:

Smackdown (Airing Friday on SyFy)

* Eve opens the show with a promo. She says that since John Laurinaitis is not in the building tonight, she is in charge. Alberto Del Rio comes out and demands that he be Sheamus' opponent at No Way Out. Randy Orton comes out next and demands to be Sheamus' opponent. Kane does the same shortly after. Eve makes a triple threat match between the three for later in the show, in order to determine the #1 Contender.

* Christian b. Hunico with the Killswitch. After the match, Cody Rhodes got a mic and said that Christian is ruining the prestige of the Intercontinental Championship, and that he'll win it back.

* Darren Young & Titus O'Neil b. The Usos

* Ryback b. two local jobbers with a double fisherman buster.

* Santino Marella b. Ricardo Rodriguez

* A vignette for Sin Cara's return airs, announcing his return date: June 1.

* Sheamus cuts a short promo John Laurinaitis & The Big Show before getting interrupted by Vickie Guerrero, who introduces his opponent, Jack Swagger.

* Sheamus b. Jack Swagger with a Brogue Kick.

* Damien Sandow b. Yoshi Tatsu

* The Big Show cuts a promo while sitting in a chair in the ring. He says that he felt betrayed by the fans and had no one to turn to, so he had to make a deal with Laurinaitis to get his job back. He says that he doesn't care what the fans think, because he doesn't care about them anymore.

* Kane comes out for the main event, but Daniel Bryan assaults him with a chair. Referees have to separate Bryan from Kane.

* A vignette for the return of Sin Cara airs.

* Alberto Del Rio b. Randy Orton & Kane in a triple threat match to become the #1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. Daniel Bryan went to ringside once again to distract the already-injured Kane, which gave Orton an opportunity to hit Kane with an RKO. Del Rio broke up the pin and pinned Kane himself for the victory. Sheamus came out after the match and laid Del Rio out with a Brogue Kick to end the show.

    Darn, was hoping (still hoping) the Orton/Barrett feud involved the belt

    I'd like to see Ricardo competing in more matches. He''s really quite well in the ring from what I've seen of him in FCW.

    • Bryan

      I enjoyed his segment with Santino on RAW…I think if they broke up Ricardo and Del Rio and turned Ricardo face, I really think he would be able to get over with the fans.

  • Marshall

    Thanks as always!

  • Aldo T

    I haven't said this in a good while.. But I'm actually very interested in watching this weeks Smackdown.

  • Matt

    whose the face in the most likely kane and daniel bryan feud?

    • smark


  • Matt

    Nice seeing Ricardo wrestling, that segment with him and Santino on Raw was my favorite of the evening. Also good to see Christian and Cody being highlighted for the IC belt. It's been a LONG time since that belt has meant anything. Reminds me of a dream feud of HBK and Steamboat (in my head)

  • Noah

    So Kane turned face?

  • Bryan

    After Jericho's attack on Orton on RAW, I wouldnt be suprised if they set up a fued between those two. Id like to see a Jericho vs Orton match.

    Also, are they slowly turning Kane face???

  • H.M.

    No Sandow?

    • H.M.

      Oops misread the results page.

  • Kane a face then…. As long as he can have a feud that doesn't end up making him look weak; which has been the case for every feud since his return with the mask.

  • @KyleGordon91

    Ahhh was hoping to see Antonio Cesaro on SmackDown this week

  • Jay

    Was the Santino/Ricardo match a quick comedy thing? Or did Ricardo actually get to show off some of his skills? Something tells me it was a quick 123…

  • Tim

    Alberto is probably the most boring superstar lets give him the shot instead of the loved veteran in Kane that makes perfect sense

    • Mark123ac

      your right that makes perfect sense… kane deserves a title shot

      • Tim

        Absolutely he does I’d rather see a punk va Kane then Sheamus vs Kane tho both would be great tho

  • #1 Awesome One

    Ryback vs. Clay for SD! next week! That match will give the crowd something to cheer about! Also, isn't Sin Cara already wrestling at house shows? I may only be a kid, but I know about common sense!
