Spoilers: WWE Smackdown taping results
May 21, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
The Smackdown broadcast team was introduced. JBL’s theme played and I went back to 2004 for a second.
MizTV opened the show with Fandango as special guest. Miz dropped the “you look like a bag of skittles and you’re the new fruitty pebbles.” Wade Barrett came out talked smack to Fandango and an IC match with Barrett vs Miz was set up.
1. The Miz defeated Wade Barrett by DQ in an Intercontinental Title match. Fandango was on commentary. I’d love to hear what JBL and Fandango are talking about. Fandango started to dance midway through the match and this led to Fandango interrupting the match. All three ended up in the ring with Barrett standing over them to end this really long segment…
Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter came out for a promo. I’m sitting on the camera side. Enjoy my “Weed The People” sign. Zeb insulted the Cornhusker state…
2. Daniel Bryan (w/Kane) beat Jack Swagger (w/Zeb Colter). Bryan won via submission.
The Raw Rebound was shown…
A suit wearing Damien Sandow was in the ring, where an office table was set up. He had a rope tied in a knot on the table. Shemaus interrupted him. Sheamus and Sandow had words. Sheamus ended up throwing Matt Striker, who was conducting the interview, over the top rope onto Sandow.
3. Chris Jericho defeated Big Show by count out. Jericho won after Show was knocked over the ringside barricade for the count out.
Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman came out for a promo. The Axel theme song is legit. Paul spoke about Brock Lesnar and C.M. Punk’s success and how he will take Axel to the top. Axel spoke about putting Triple H out and accomplishing more than his dad and grandpa and said this was just the beginning. Lots of crickets.
4. Curtis Axel beat Sin Cara. Axel mania is running wild! There were a few flying spots, but it was otherwise predictable and boring.
5. Kofi Kingston beat Dean Ambrose by DQ in a U.S. Title match. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns interfered for the DQ. Randy Orton and Sheamus ran out to save Kofi. Teddy Long came out and booked The Shield vs. Orton, Sheamus, and Kingston in a six-man tag.
6. The Shield beat Randy Orton, Sheamus, and Kofi Kingston. Dean Ambrose pinned Kofi Kingston clean to win the match. The Shield stood in the ring with the gold in what appeared to be the end of the taping for Friday’s television show.
After the cameras stopped filming, Bryan and Kane came out and threw The Shield back inside the ring. Dean Ambrose took an RKO. Sheamus Brogue kicked Seth Rollins, etc. The crowd left happy. Thanks for following along tonight.
