WWE taped this week’s edition of Smackdown from the Manchester Evening News Arena in Manchester, England. Thanks to PWTorch reader Martin Turner for providing us with live updates. Below are full results:
FCW champion Mason Ryan beat Chavo Guerrero. Ryan with a Black Hole Slam type finisher.
WWE Smackdown (Airing Firday):
Edge kicks off Smackdown talking about winning the World Title at Survivor Series. Nexus interrupts and surrounds the ring. Vickie Guerrero comes out and forces Edge to shake Otunga’s hand since she’s in charge. Edge does, then spears Otunga off the apron into Nexus.
(1) Alberto Del Rio beat Kofi Kingston via submission with the armbar. Rey Mysterio came out after the match and gave Del Rio the 619.
(2) Natalya beat Co-Women’s champion Layla via submission with the Sharpshooter in a non-title match previewing Survivor Series.
World Hvt. champion Kane cut a backstage promo on Big Show ahead of their TV main event.
(3) David Otunga beat Edge in a lumberjack match to stay in Nexus. All hell broke loose at ringside with the lumberjacks at ringside, which allowed Kane to enter and chokeslam Edge. Otunga made the cover and got the win.
(4) Intercontinental champion Dolph Ziggler beat MVP to retain the Intercontinental Title with the Zig-Zag. MVP’s foot may have been on the bottom rope during the three count for his “out.”
Kane was shown walking backstage. He discovers the urn on the floor and Paul Bearer is nowhere to be found.
“Dashing” Cody Rhodes comes out next to insult the crowd and show one of his grooming tips videos. Not sure if that was just for the crowd.
Kane still can’t find Paul Bearer and the main event is next.
(5) Big Show beat World Hvt. champion Kane in a non-title match. Show won with a chokeslam after Edge came out with a tied up Paul Bearer as a distraction.
End Smackdown TV broadcast.
Post-SD Dark Match Main Event: Edge & Rey Mysterio beat World Hvt. champion Kane & Alberto Del Rio. Edge and Rey won with a 619/spear combination on Del Rio for the win to send the fans home happy.
