John Cena Works SmackDown Dark Match Main Event; Live Report
Thanks to reader Ben for sending in the following report from what happened after last night’s SmackDown taping ended:
After the taping ended, the dark match was originally scheduled to be a 2-on-1 handicap match with The Big Show and John Laurinaitis vs. John Cena. Laurinaitis announced that it is being changed to a 3-on-1 with David Otunga as the third man.
Cena and Show started off. Cena hit the ground after attempting a should block on Show, and Show took it to Cena. Big Show tagged in Laurinaitis, who proceeded to stomp on Cena. After about 30 seconds, Laurinaitis started selling his injury and tagged in Otunga. Cena eventually made a comeback and got Otunga up for the AA. Show entered the ring and tried to hit the WMD on Cena, but missed and hit Otunga. Cena clotheslined Show over the ropes and then covered Otunga to secure the victory.
Laurinaitis came in after the match and attacked Cena with his crutch. Cena went down and Laurinaitis lined up for a big swing. He missed wildly and Cena nailed him with the AA to send everyone home happy.
After the match, Cena grabbed a mic and talked about the two jobbers who fought Ryback earlier. He said it was stupid of them to say “Roll Tide” in Baton Rouge, which led to an L-S-U chant. Cena then brought Hornswoggle out to the ring and led the crowd in singing happy birthday to Hornswoggle. Lilian then thanked us for coming out and the show is over.
