Miz TV opened the show with John Cena was the guest. Miz asked him about his knee and what’s going on with AJ. AJ came out and then Dolph Ziggler interrupted. They played everything on the Titan Tron that happened on Raw. Vickie Guerrero came out to a ton of boos. Nothing really happened. They bickered back and forth before Cena got the last word.

2. R-Truth defeated Antonio Cesaro in a non-title match in 3:00. Truth won the match with his finisher.

Big Show vs. Team Hell No in a handicap match was announced for later in the show. Kofi Kingston vs. Damien Sandow for the Intercontinental Title was also advertised.
3. Alberto Del Rio beat Sin Cara in 8:00. The crappy mood lighting returned. Boo. Del Rio won via submission with the Cross Arm Breaker.
4. Big Show defeated Team Hell No in 13:00 in a handicap match. Bryan tagged himself in and Kane left him there to fight for himself. Show won when Show chokeslammed Bryan. Kane came back in after the match and him and Bryan cleared Big Show from the ring. Sheamus and William Regal were watching the match from a press box in the crowd right behind us.
5. Kofi Kingston defeated Damien Sandow in 8:00 to retain the Intercontinental Title. Kingston got the pin after Trouble in Paradise. Solid match. Wade Barrett was on commentary. He on the mic afterward and said the Intercontinental Title will be his.
It was announced that Michael Cole will have an exclusive interview with Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns on Monday’s Raw.
6. Dolph Ziggler defeated Randy Orton in 11:00. Orton went for the RKO and Ziggler rolled him up for the three count. After the match, Ricardo and Del Rio ran in. Ricardo ate an RKO and Del Rio backed off. Ziggler went to the top of the ramp and Cena attacked him and put him in a STFU. Orton’s music played as Smackdown concluded.
Booker T announced a title match.
1. Sheamus defeated Big Show via DQ in a World Hvt. Championship match in 4:00. Big Show attacked Sheamus with a chair for the DQ. After the match, Sheamus got the upper hand and attacked Big Show with a chair and hit him with a Brogue Kick to send the home happy.
Notes: The only sign of Rollins, Ambrose and Reigns was during Main Event taping when they attacked Santino and Kidd. They weren’t on Smackdown. It was kind of a random match to for them to run-in on.
