WWE Smackdown Taping
* Color commentator Booker T made his entrance for a big pop.
* Daniel Bryan and A.J. came out to start the show to a lot of boos. Bryan made A.J. tell everyone how much she loves him. It was hard to hear anything because he was being booed so loudly.
* Shemaus interrupted and called Bryan a coward while saying his speech made him throw up in his mouth. Sheamus said he will kick Bryan’s teeth down his throat and added that he will be called a former World Hvt. Champion.
* Mark Henry defeated R-Truth. Henry won with the World’s Strongest Slam in three minutes.
* A graphic was shown for Big Show vs. Kane for tonight’s show.
* A video package revealed Yokozuna as the newest WWE Hall of Fame inductee.
* Zack Ryder and The Great Khali were added to Teddy Long’s team at WrestleMania 28.
* A.J. (w/Daniel Bryan) beat Brie Bella. A.J. received a pop because she’s from Union City, N.J., which is about ten minutes away from Newark. She got the win with a distraction by Bryan followed by a roll up for the pin. Afterward, Bryan entered the ring and celebrated more than A.J.
* A No Way Out video package aired to hype the event that will be held in New Jersey.
* Zack Ryder (w/Hornswoggle) beat Jack Swagger (w/Vickie Guerrero). Lilian Garcia mistakenly introduced Ryder as Swagger. Back and forth action, Ryder got a near fall, and so did Sswagger. Ryder hit the Rough Ryder for the victory after Vickie and Hornswoggle argued on the apron in 3:49.
* Big Show defeated Kane by DQ when Cody Rhodes interfered. Cody ran in and hit Big Show for the DQ. Show chased him into the crowd. Randy Orton snuck inside the ring and hit the RKO on Kane for a big pop. The match lasted a little over four minutes.
* Brodus Clay beat Health Slater. Squash match. K Greene asks when we’ll get a real Clay match rather than a squash. Good question. Clay won in 1:25 and then entertained the crowd.
* The Great Khali defeated Dolph Ziggler via countout in a restarted match. Christian came out to a pop and joined the announcers on commentary. John Laurinaitus rang bell and declared Ziggler winner by submission with no tap (Montreal screwjob style). Teddy restarted the match and counted out Ziggler, declaring Khali the winner. Kofi Kingston and Santino Marella pushed Ziggler back in and Khali chopped him.
* WWE champ CM Punk & Sheamus defeated World champion Daniel Bryan & The Miz when Sheamus drilled Miz with the Brogue Kick.
