Jun 15, 2012 - by Michael Riba

Smackdown opens with a video clip of what happened in the ring to close out Monday Night Raw this past week, with The Big Show WMD Punching Vince McMahon. We then see the Smackdown opening video and Josh Mathews welcomes us to the show from Manchester, New Hampshire. We also see a graphic that says we will get an update on Vince’s condition and Michael Cole wonders if Show will apologize.

A.J.’s music hits and she makes her way to the ring. A.J. was about to explain why she kisses Kane this past Monday on Raw, but Vickie Guerrero comes out and interrupts. Vickie says the real story from this past Monday was Dolph Ziggler’s victory to become the new number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. Ziggler’s music hits and he and Vickie walk to the ring. Ziggler says he proved what he said two weeks ago, that he is above a tag team and is World Heavyweight Championship material. He insults A.J., but she ignores it and calls him delusional and calls Vickie his grandmother, which leads to Vickie slapping her. CM Punk’s music comes out and he makes his way to the ring. Punk says all he heard Vickie say was, “Excuse me,” and then says nobody has to excuse her. He says she says the same things every week about how great Ziggler is, and then he doesn’t come through. Punk says it will be no different tonight and no different at No Way Out. Ziggler pipes in and begins talking, but Daniel Bryan’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring. Bryan mocks A.J. and Punk and calls Punk a hero for saving A.J. Bryan says he enjoys watching Punk and Kane make the same mistake that he made, and then says the mistake is A.J. Sheamus’ music hits and he makes his way out to the ring. Sheamus says Bryan talks out of his arse so much that he doesn’t know which ends to look at when he is talking. Sheamus says he will beat Ziggler once again at No Way Out. Sheamus says the scheduled tag team match should happen right now. A.J. says if that’s the case, she has some business to take care of and tries to charge at Vickie, but Punk and Sheamus hold her back as we go to a commercial.

Match #1: CM Punk and Sheamus (w/A.J.) vs. Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler (w/Vickie Guerrero)

We get a Raw 1000 flashback and it’s of the Muppets hosting Raw.

John Laurinaitis makes his way out onto the stage. He makes an apology to Vince and then says his advice would be to stay out of The Big Show’s way. We see a replay video of what went down between Laurinaitis, Vince, Show, and Cena from this past Monday night. We’re back to Laurinaitis and he’s in the ring now. He says every time his job is on the line, he comes out on top, like at WrestleMania XXVIII and Over the Limit. He says his job is on the line again this Sunday, but he’s not worried because The Big Show will destroy John Cena. Show says he doesn’t have to lie about what happened this past Monday night. He says he has never been given the chance to out-shine the “faces of the company,” like Hulk Hogan, Sting, and Ric Flair in wCw and John Cena, CM Punk, Randy Orton, and Sheamus in the WWE. He says he is going to make up for lost time in the Steel Cage Match this Sunday. Show says he isn’t burdened by what the fans think of him. He admits that he punched Vince on purpose. Laurinaitis and Show go to leave, but Michael Cole stops them and tells them that John Cena has left his home in West Newbury, Massachusetts and will be in the arena before the night is over. Show says he will not be hard to find as we go to commercial.

Match #4: Christian vs. Jack Swagger (w/Vickie Guerrero)

We are reminded again that John Cena will be here before the show is over to call out The Big Show as we go to a commercial.

We are reminded one last time that Cena will call out The Big Show later tonight as we go to a commercial.

We’re back from commercial and John Cena’s music hits and he runs down to the ring. Cena apologizes for being late. He says his boy called him up and said Show called him out. Cena says he didn’t want to Show to think he was hiding. Cena says he is the guy in the ring, wearing green and still wearing jorts after 1990. John Laurinaitis’ music hits and he makes his way to the ring. Laurinaitis says Show won’t be coming out. Laurinaitis says what happened to Vince is Cena’s fault. Laurinaitis says he sent Show home to protect Cena. Cena says he came here to knock someone out and since Show isn’t here, Laurinaitis is next in line. Laurinaitis threatens to fire Cena, but Cena says he can’t. Cena calls Laurinaitis having a position of power is an embarrassment. Cena reminds Laurinaitis that if Show loses, he is fired. Laurinaitis says if Cena does what he says he’s going to do and then loses on Sunday, he will be fired on Raw. Cena decks Laurinaitis with a right hand and leaves the ring. Referees check on Laurinaitis as Smackdown comes to a close.
