WWE spoiled the fact that Alberto Del Rio beat Kalisto to regain the United States Championship in a match that was taped last night for this week’s episode of Smackdown. You can read their spoiler coverage at this link.
We have complete taping results available at this link.
For those wondering why WWE would spoil such an outcome, it’s their philosophy that exposing a title change for a show will cause MORE (not less) people to tune in. With the move from SyFY to the USA Network, WWE is hyper focused on making Smackdown feel like important must-see TV again. The thinking is if they advertise a title change, viewers will have the perception that “anything can happen” and it will spark interest.
