Jan 15, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck
Here is a brief recap of the WWE Smackdown house show in Vancouver, BC from Saturday night.
The show kicks off with Hornswoggle coming to the ring and before he could say much Cody Rhodes came down and took the mic and shoved Hornswoggle hard to the mat. Rhodes went on to say the one thing he has in common with the Ultimate Warrior is that he’s going into the Royal Rumble as the Intercontinental champion and he will leave Wrestlemania with the Heavyweight championship.
Ted DiBiase defeated Jinder Mahal with the Dream Street. After the match Cody Rhodes attacks DiBiase and gives him the Cross Rhodes.
Trent Barreta and Yoshi Tastu defeated Drew McIntyre and Heath Slater when Tatsu pinned McIntyre.
Hunico w/ Camacho defeated Ezekiel Jackson clean with the frog splash. Not sure what he actually calls his finisher? Cody Rhodes comes out and this time attacks Jackson and gives him the Cross Rhodes.
Cody Rhodes defeats Justin Gabriel with the Cross Rhodes. A good back and forth match. Rhodes continues the beat down when Ted DiBiase and Hornswoggle make the save.
Alicia Fox defeats Natalya by pin fall. Afterwards Natalya attacks the referee Oksana and puts her in the Sharpshooter.
Sheamus defeated Wade Barrett with the Brogue Kick. Barrett controlled most of this long match until Sheamus out of nowhere ends it.
Big Show defeated Daniel Bryan by DQ when Wade Barrett and Jinder Mahal attack Big Show. Sheamus ran in for the save. Before the match started Daniel Bryan tried for a good five minutes to talk to the crowd and he was booed big time and the “You Suck” chants could be heard throughout the arena. Kind of surprising as he is just from across the border in Washington State plus he has competed here many times in the past pre WWE.
