WWE SmackDown Tapings Results For Friday (1/11)

* SmackDown opens with CM Punk and Paul Heyman at Sun Life Stadium. Punk puts on The Rock’s college football jersey. The stadium The Rock played college football at (the Orange Dome) is gone and the WWE that The Rock used to wrestle for is gone too. At the Royal Rumble, Punk is going to show The Rock that you can never go home.

* The Rock comes out for a promo. Flo Rida is in the house. The Rock is back on The Rock’s show, SmackDown. Rock talks about his college football days. Damien Sandow and Cody Rhodes come out. They say they are going to be champions soon and The Rock doesn’t deserve this time. Rock says Cody has a dead caterpillar on his lip and makes fun of his lisp. Sandow has a wager for The Rock. Sandow says if Rock can answer 3 questions, he can stay. If not he leaves. Rock says bring it. Question 1 – who was the 19th US president. Rock says Rutherford B Hayes, bitch. Cody asks what movie won Best Picture in 1993. Rock says Schindlers List & he’s right again. Question 3 – Rock says now it’s his turn to ask a question. What happens when you combine a geological aggregate of minerals with its lowest form. Sandow says that’s easy – you get Rock Bottom. Rock grabs him and gives him a Rock Bottom! Cody gets in Rock’s face and gets a spine buster and then a People’s Elbow. Rock celebrates.

* Lilian Garcia introduces SmackDown General Manager Booker T. Booker announces Antonio Cesaro vs. Randy Orton. The Rock will be in this very ring tonight. Also Big Show vs. Alberto Del Rio. Show comes out and confronts Booker. He gets a microphone and says his match with Del Rio is because Booker T has a personal vendetta against him. Big Show says Del Rio is only getting the match because they’re in Miami and Del Rio is Latino. There are no more Latino heroes, no more Irish heroes, no Viper heroes. Del Rio runs out and attacks Big Show and clears him out of the ring. Loud chant for Del Rio.

* Backstage segment with Booker, Rhodes and Sandow.

* A pre-recorded video from Antonio Cesaro announces he will be in the Royal Rumble.

Lots of back and forth. Show hits a choke slam and Del Rio gets up after 7. Outside the ring, Big Show slams Del Rio through the ringside barricade. Del Rio gets up after a 9 count and the crowd goes nuts. Back in the ring, Big Show nails Del Rio with the WMD knockout punch. Del Rio makes the count by rolling out of the ring at the last second and standing up. Big Show tries to hit Del Rio with ring steps but it backfired and he hits himself. Del Rio hits Big Show with the ring steps 3 times and Big Show is hurt. Del Rio turns the announcers table onto Big Show and gets the 10 count for the win.

    SD actually looks pretty good. I can’t wait to see the promo between the Rock and Sandow. That’s going to be great.

    ADR winning the WHC is a shocker. I can see Ziggler cashing in on ADR since he’s now a face.

    • Junaid Bokhari

      Ziggler WONT cash in until after wrestlemania at this stage.

      • Mr_DJ

        well then giving him the MitB briefcase would have been just a giant waste of time, nice.

      I’m scratching my head as to why they put the title on Del Rio again in the first place. He’s a horrible babyface too.

      I think you’re right, he’ll most likely be a transitional champion and drop the title to Ziggler in the coming months.

    I gotta watch Crapdown to see my boy The Rock.

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    I got my wish. Sandow and Rock in the ring together. I am definitely not missing that!

  • Jeremy

    Alboreo is now the World Heavyweight Champion? *Yawn*

  • raven x

    Langston is a bitch for doing that to hornswoggle

    • TheKillingMoon

      Fuck Hornswoggle.

      • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

        ^^^ Now this I agree with. I want to see Langston punt Hornswoggle like Bryan did to Little Jimmy.

        • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

          or like Snitsky did to Lita’s baby …xD

    This looks to be a great SD. Sandow and The Rock promo is what I really want to see from the show and Del Rio winning the championship. I didn’t expect to see Alberto Del Rio to become champion again, but know I have more faith that Ziggler will cash in his MITB contract soon.

  • G.I.R.L.

    I hope they don’t screw up with Ziggler.

  • DigitalWWE

    The Rock and Sandow seem like they could have a bunch of hilarious promos together.

  • Funny

    Smackdown is Batista and Undertaker !

  • fireworks Ts

    THANK ALL THAT IS BIG SHIT is no longer champ.

  • satishwarne708

    What a Great SD!

    wow why would they have show drop the title to delrio?!?!?!?! wtf, show has done nothing but job for years since he arrived in the wwe, he hasnt had any decent length title runs and they have him drop it to this asshole, jesus christ hopefully delrio doesnt have the title for very long

  • morrisonfanone

    I never thought I’d be happy Del Rio is champion. This SD actually sounds decent. I can’t wait.

  • Mr_DJ

    okay…I just gotta see Big E hit his move on Hornswoggle lol

  • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

    The Rock/Rhodes Scholars segment is a must-see.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ldozier3 Lorenzo Dozier

    Interesting Show. Ziggler has until July 2013 to cash in, but I feel he’ll do it at WM 29 or Elimination Chamber is a great place to do it at. Congrats Del Rio on becoming World Champion, I am happy.

    Smackdown actually seems pretty awesome this week, just hoping I’ve got nothing happening Friday lol…xD
