WWE Smackdown (Airing Friday)

Christian defeated Mark Henry.

Christian asked Teddy Long to add him to the title match between Sheamus and Randy Orton. Long named him special referee.

Alicia Fox and Tamina defeated A.J. and Kaitlyn. A short match.

Cody Rhodes comes out and delivers a heel promo on Daniel Bryan.

Jinder Mahal defeated Yoshi Tatsu in a squash match.

Ezekiel Jackson defeated Wade Barrett by countout in an Intercontinental title match (title doesn’t change hands). Jackson fights off Slater and Gabriel afterwards.

Obama promo. Pretty funny one.

Sheamus tried to suck up to Christian by saying they should have a triple threat. Christian said he knew he was lying and told him to focus on Randy Orton.

Daniel Bryan defeated Ted Dibiase. Good match. Cody Rhodes comes out with more paper bags. He cut a promo earlier whining about losing to Bryan last week. Bryan wins by submission. Rhodes and DiBiase beat down Bryan. Sin Cara comes out for the save and hits moves on both. Funny moment mid-match as Sin Cara’s entrance “steam” got played for a second. Someone hit the switch waaaay too early. I bet that is edited out.

Randy Orton defeats Sheamus for WWE World title with Christian as special referee. Sheamus bumps Christian. Christian starts favoring his arm. Sheamus has Orton pinned, Christian counts two, then stops and favors his arm again. Orton hits RKO for the win.


 The Miz spoke with The New York Post this past weekend to promote his appearance on Monday’s Tough Enough and when asked what’s next for him in WWE, he said:

“This whole process has been one long journey, chapters in a book, and once I succeed in one, I focus on the next. I want to be looked at as the guy who will take this company to the next level. I want to become the face of The WWE. I want people to think of The WWE and think of The Miz. I need to become bigger than John Cena, bigger than The Rock, bigger than Stone Cold. If you’re in The WWE and beating them isn’t your ultimate goal, you shouldn’t even be here.”


On Memorial Day, The Rock posted a photo from his family farm of he and his horse Scoob. The Rock referred to the horse’s large teeth as “John Cena teeth.”

After Monday’s RAW, Cena responded to The Rock with the following on Twitter:

“Hey dwayne. Glad u had fun on the farm. Would loved to have joined u and scoob…but I was at RAW looking for the guy who brings it…. Guess he decided he had better things to do…you know…like….hang out….on the farm…and stuff.  ”
