Dot Net readers Sean McCroskey and Candelario Perez, Jr. are at the WWE Smackdown taping in Houston, Texas and are sending in updates. You must refresh the page for their latest updates.
Michael Cole came out to boos. Brodus Clay's disco ball is hanging above the ring. Lilian Garcia made her entrance.
Booker T came out and discussed Sheamus stealing Alberto Del Rio's car at Raw. He said he wanted an apology from Sheamus, who made his entrance and apologized. Del Rio interrupted and wanted to press charges. He insulted Sheamus and got in Booker's face. Booker announced Sheamus vs. Del Rio for the World Hvt. Championship will take place on tonight's show.
1. Sin Cara defeated Cody Rhodes. Rhodes said Sin Cara wears a mask due to him being ugly and cockeyed. They used the stupid Sin Cara mood lighting again. A good match. Cody kept trying to get the mask off of Sin Cara, but it eventually led to him being rolled up for the pin.
2. Christian defeated Antonio Cesaro. Antonio said victory in five languages.
Christian was way over. Good match back and forth match. Cesaro shows promise. Christian speared Cesaro and got the win. Cesaro beat up Christian after the match.
3. Randy Orton defeated Jack Swagger. Orton was in control from start to finish in the short match, which ended with an RKO.
Booker T and Teddy Long spoke in an office backstage until they were interrupted by Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins, who asked them about opportunities. Booker said they have the look, but they can't seem to get the job done by beating Ryback. Booker said he wants A-plus talent.
4. Jinder Mahal beat a pair of local wrestlers. After the match, Ryback entered and ran off Jinder. Ryback demolished the local wrestlers. The crowd was very into the "Feed Me More" chant.
Jericho introduced The Highlight Reel but was interrupted by Vickie Guerrero. Jericho called her Dolph Ziggler's mother. Dolph didn't show for the interview so Vickie stood in. Vickie threatened to walk off show. There was a recap of Dolph losing on Raw with the Tout finish. Good back and forth mic work. Well kinda, Jericho was good. He claimed that Y2J is back. Ziggler jumped the barricade and attacked Jericho from behind. Ziggler caught him with the Zigzag and then hit him with the Money in the Bank briefcase.
5. The Primetime Players (w/A.W.) defeated Primo and Epico by DQ to become No. 1 contenders to the WWE Tag Titles. Kofi Kingston and R-Truth were on commentary. There was no sign of Rosa Mendes. A.W. threw water of Kofi and Truth. The tag champs beat down AW in the ring until he escaped. The Players won the tag match via DQ. Primo and Epico looked upset with Kofi and Truth for costing them the match. Possible triple threat for the tag titles?
Eve attempted to sweet talk Booker into giving her a job, but Booker said nothing is available. Kaitlyn entered the room. She will face Eve next week with the winner of the match becoming Booker's assistant.
6. Rey Mysterio defeated The Miz in a non-title match. A very good backd and forth match. Mysterio looks and moves like he did ten years ago. Miz did well also. Mysterio won with a roll up. After the match, Triple H came out and Pedigreed The Miz in a segment that probably won't air on television.
Daniel Bryan made his entrance to major heat. Great mic work by Bryan promoting his match at SummerSlam. Kane entered and then A.J. came out to my surprise. She flirted a little and was very complimentary of Kane. She asked Bryan to shake Kane's hand and he said No!!! She demanded that he shake Kane's hand. Kane and Daniel Bryan fought a little. Bryan rolled out and jumped the barricade. A.J. was on the stage laughing. Kane exited.
7. Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio for the World Hvt. Championship. Del Rio wore black and it fits his character better. The police showed up to attack Sheamus before the match (apparently they were hired by Del Rio). With Sheamus down, Del Rio locked in the Cross Arm Breaker. The match never got started. The show ended with Sheamus clinching his arm.
1. John Cena beat Big Show and Dolph Ziggler in a handicap match. Big Johnny came out and took an AA to send the crowd home happy. Lilian Garcia thanked us and told us to drive safely.
Overall great show live crowd was really into it.
John Cena (dark match)
Daniel bryan (by far no one close)
