WWE taped this week’s WWE Smackdown from the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa. Thanks to ProWrestling.net and reader Tyler Rooney for providing us with updates. Below are full results:
Johnny Curtis beat Michael McGillicutty.
1. Christian beat Mark Henry.
Christian asked Teddy Long to add him to the title match. Long named him special referee.
2. Alicia Fox and Tamina beat A.J. and Kaitlyn. A short match.
Cody Rhodes cut a promo regarding Daniel Bryan.
3. Jinder Mahal beat Yoshi Tatsu in a squash.
4. Ezekiel Jackson beat Wade Barrett by countout. Barrett retained by being counted out intentionally. He walked off as Zeke roughed up Gabriel and Slater.
Sheamus tried to suck up to Christian by saying they should have a triple threat. Christian said he knew he was lying and told him to focus on Randy Orton.
5. Daniel Bryan beat Cody Rhodes. Cody attacked Bryan afterward. Sin Cara made the save. It was obvious that Sin Cara was coming out because the trampoline was set up and his fog accidentally went off early.
6. Randy Orton beat Sheamus to retain the World Hvt. Championship with Christian as special referee. Sheamus caught Orton with the Brogue kick. Christian counted to two and acted like his wrist hurt. Orton hit the RKO for the win. Christian hit Orton with the belt. A fan tried to jump the rail at one point, but he was caught and won’t be in camera view.
