4/16 WWE Smackdown TV taping spoilers: Full coverage of the taping for Friday's television show (spoilers)
Apr 16, 2013 - 07:38 PM


Dot Net reader George B. Walsh and Chris Newman are at the WWE Smackdown taping in Knoxville, Tennessee and are sending the following combined report. Refresh the page for the latest updates.

Michael Cole and JBL came out for commentary. Lilian Garcia came out to serve as the ring announcer...

The Fandango set lowered onto the stage and in the ring. Fandango's music played and the crowd went wild. The crowd sang the song or at least tried to. The Fandango display lit up with small flares. Fandango messed with Lilian Garcia and said she looked excellent tonight. Lilian looked like she was ready to puke and Fandango told her that she was terrible when trying to Fandango...

Santino Marella came out and talked before getting in the ring. Fandango's music hit and Santino danced around. Fandango tried to go after Santino and went over the top rope when Santino moved out of the way. This all led to a match...

1. Fandango defeated Santino Marella. Santino tried to hit The Cobra and Fandango blocked it and hit his finisher to win the match. Fandango gets on the mic and said "It's Fandango." A pretty quick match for the first match of Smackdown...

Backstage, Booker T and Teddy Long were talking and in came Big Show to talk to them...

2. U.S. Champion Kofi Kingston defeated Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett. The crowd was dead in the middle of the match and then started a Kofi Kingston chant. Barrett went for a pin and got a two count. Kofi rolled up Wade Barrett to get the pin...

A video was shown of from last week's Smackdown of Mark Henry and Sheamus. Another video of these two from Monday Night Raw was shown...

Mark Henry was interviewed backstage. Sheamus attacked Henry...

A few video clips of Dolph Ziggler were shown with Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger with Zeb Colter...

Alberto Del Rio came out with Ricardo Rodriguez to a nice pop. Out next was Jack Swagger with Zeb Colter with medium heat for both... 

3. Alberto Del Rio (w/Ricardo Rodriguez) beat Jack Swagger (w/Zeb Colter). When the official's back was turned, Zeb punched Del Rio. Later, Del Rio ran into the corner post with his shoulder. Del Rio's knee was bandaged heavily. A "We The People" chant started but was weak while a Del Rio chant got momentum and then slowed down once Swagger got back on the offense. 

Swagger taunted Del Rio, and Del Rio got on fire and turned things around for a short bit. There were several near falls throughout the match. Swagger applied the Patriot Lock, and Del Rio made it to the ropes for the break. Del Rio ended up winning by pinfall. A very good match as it went on...

A video was shown of John Cena and Ryback...

A video of The Shield was shown in which they mocked John Cena and spoke about how Ryback just watched Cena at the end of Raw. The Shield said Ryback knows how justice feels. They went on to talk about Undertaker and said Taker he was afraid and scared to death of The Shield...

4. The Great Khali, Hornswoggle, and Natalya defeated Primo, Epico, and Rosa Mendes. This match was set up because Primo and Epico took Hornswoggle's parking spot when they were in the parking lot. No joke. A quick match that nobody really seemed to care about. Natty, Great Khali, and Horny danced in the ring...

A video of CM Punk from Raw was shown...

The crew messed with the aprons and the mat again. A video of Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman's "Challenge Issued" segment from Raw was shown... 

WWE Smackdown returns to Knoxville on November 19, 2013. The presale password is Knoxville and it starts tonight at the online box office knoxvilletickets.com...

Triple H will respond to Brock Lesnar on Monday's WWE Raw television show...

5. Big Show and Mark Henry defeated Sheamus and Randy Orton. A decent pop for Big Show. Orton came out and the place went wild for him. Next out is Sheamus and the place was even louder pop for the Great White. Show won the match for his team by chokeslamming Orton and pinning him.

Dark Match

The Shield came out and attacked Orton and Sheamus. The Shield was in control at the start and Triple H's music played and the crowd erupted for the biggest pop of the night. Triple H had a black cast on his left arm. Sheamus performed a Brogue Kick on Roman Reigns. Orton set up an RKO on Reigns, which was followed by a Pedigree by Triple H. The Shield retreated. Triple H's music played to send everyone home happy.

George's Notes: I was at ringside and got a fist bump from Orton and high fives from Triple H and Sheamus. A very good live show. I'll have to watch Friday night and see what commentary is said during the matches. Triple H, Orton, and Sheamus pose for photos and high fived with the fans. This was way better overall than Raw it was here in Knoxville back in 2011.
