Spoilers: WWE Smackdown Taping Results
May 7, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
Highlight Reel with Ryback to start, about Ryback’s actions and losing the respect of the fans. Ryback is so bad on the mic. And I have no clue what this segment is supposed to accomplish since Ryback is already a heel. Teddy comes out and makes Ryback/Jericho in the main event. Then Ryback decks Jericho. The talking sucked. Main event is nice.
1. Kofi Kingston beat Cody Rhodes. Kofi won with Trouble in Paradise to the gut as Cody tried a springboard. Short and kinda sloppy.
Recap of Lesnar destroying Triple H’s office and the Triple H/Heyman segment from Raw. Triple H and Lesnar will be face-to-face on Raw.
Backstage with Zeb Colter. Colter says tonight is “real American vs. affirmative action” and Jack is ready to take back America.
2. Jack Swagger vs. Big E Langston. ADR came out for commentary and threw a ladder in the ring before the match started. Swagger decked Dolph then hit Big E w/ the ladder. Dolph got up and drop kicked the ladder into Swagger. ADR hit Dolph and Swagger with the ladder before climbing and posing with the belt.
3. Dean Ambrose and Daniel Bryan went to a no contest. Kane/Shield got involved and then Kofi evened things up. Really good while it lasted. Crowd was into it the whole time. Plenty of “yes” chants.
In a taped segment, Mark Henry pulls a semi truck. They say its a world record. Never mind. Henry pulling one tractor trailer was a warm up. Now he’s pulling TWO! This is the world record. Henry struggles then goes BEAST MODE and pulls both. He collapses. Coughs a lot. Nearly throws up. But then yells “THAT’S WHAT I DO!”
Backstage, Orton says he’s going to send a message to Big Show at Extreme Rules.
4. Big Show beat Tensei via KO. He was going to KO Clay after the match but Orton snuck up and hit the RKO.
Kaitlyn is backstage texting. She and AJ diss each other. Natty interrupts and wants to know about the secret admirer. Khali goes undercover. Khali wears a Rey mask and Cody mustache as part of his undercover disguise to find Kaitlyn’s admirer.
5. Chris Jericho defeated Ryback via DQ when Ryback crotched Jericho on the post. Pretty decent match. They badly messed up one spot. Weak finish. After the match, Ryback tossed Jericho over the announce table. That was weak as well.
