(Spoilers) WWE SmackDown Taping Results For This Week
The following are complete results from the WWE SmackDown television tapings, which were held on Tuesday night in Atlanta, Georgia.
– Goldust & Cody Rhodes def. The Real Americans (with Zeb Colter) to retain the WWE Tag-Team Championship to open the WWE SmackDown taping. Goldust picked up the pin for his time in what was said to be a good match.
– Ryback cut a promo talking about why he loves being a bully. He issued an open challenge, which The Great Khali ended up accepting.
– Ryback def. The Great Khali in singles action. The match was said to be pretty atrocious to watch live, although the finishing spot where Ryback hoisted the big man up for the Shellshock was said to look cool.
– The Funkadactyls def. AJ Lee (with Tamina Snuka) in a Handicap Match. This match was set up by SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero. Naomi did the majority of the match in the ring, while Tamina kept Cameron on the outside most of the time.
– Rey Mysterio & The Usos def. The Shield in a six-man tag-team match. The match was slow-paced early on, but the pace picked up when Mysterio finally received the hot tag to finish up the bout.
– Big Show came out and cut a promo. Randy Orton ended up cutting in at one point and complained about not getting any help for their match this Sunday at the Survivor Series pay-per-view in Boston.
– Big E. Langston & Dolph Ziggler def. Curtis Axel & Damien Sandow in a tag-team match. This match didn’t last long and ended when the babyfaces got the win via pinfall.
– The Prime Time Players def. 3MB in a tag-team match. 3MB apparently portrayed the Fabulous Freebirds, with Heath Slater playing the part of Michael “P.S.” Hayes, Jinder Mahal playing Jimmy “Jam” Garvin and Drew McIntyre portraying Terry Gordy. I guess Buddy Roberts was nowhere to be found.
– Luke Harper def. Daniel Bryan in the televised main event for the show. CM Punk came out at one point. Harper got the win with a roll-up for the 1-2-3. After the match, The Wyatt Family laid a beat down on Punk and Bryan to close the show.
Post-Show Dark Match
– John Cena def. Alberto Del Rio to retain the World Heavyweight Championship. This was apparently a pretty decent match, with the babyface winning sending the home happy following the heel beat down ending the televised portion of the event.
