Dot Net readers Brooks and Matt H are at the WWE Smackdown taping in Atlanta, Ga. and are passing along the following report. Refresh the page for the latest updates.
1. Goldust and Cody Rhodes defeated Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro (w/Zeb Colter) to retain the WWE Tag Team Championship. Goldust got the pin. He can really go and it was even better in person.
Ryback cut a promo about why he loves being a bully. He issued issued an open challenge that The Great Khali accepted.
2. Ryback defeated The Great Khali. Ryback won cleanly. Matt said it was impressive to see him lift Khali for Shellshocked, while Brooks said the match was painful to watch.
A an that featured Bruno Sammartino aired on the big screen. Brooks noted that nobody cared and added, "Come on, this is Flair country."
3. Cameron and Naomi defeated A.J. Lee (w/Tamina) in a handicap match. The match was set up by Vickie. Naomi did all the work while Tamina kept Cameron outside. A.J.'s character feels flat, according to Brooks.
4. Rey Mysterio and The Uso Brothers defeated The Shield. The match was slow at first and picked up when Rey took a hot tag. Rey was really over.
Big Show came out for a promo. Randy Orton cut in and whined about not getting help at Survivor Series. Really good mic work from Show. Big E and ziggler out next.
5. Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler defeated Curtis Axel and Damien Sandow. Very quick match. Brooks feels Ziggler is the best worker in WWE hands down.
6. The Prime Time Players defeated 3MB. The highlight of the night for Brooks was 3MB playing the Fabulous Freebirds. Heath Slater played the part of Michael Hayes, Jinder Mahal played Jimmy Garvin, and Drew McIntyre was Terry Gordy. Slater does an awesome Hayes impersonation. However, the younger crowd didn't get it.
7. Daniel Bryan beat Luke Harper. C.M. Punk came out. The Wyatts got the better of Punk and Bryan to close the show.
Dark Main Event
1. John Cena defeated Alberto Del Rio to retain the World Heavyweight Championship. A fun match that sent the fans home happy.
Brooks' Notes: Overall, not a bad show. I'm a old school guy. The WWE belt chase is very weak at the time. The best thing is I got to take my two kids to their first WWE event.
