A video promo for Cody Rhodes is played in the arena. Then they cut to an interview with Kane. He states that he’s still the Devil’s favorite.
In the main event of SmackDown, Randy Orton defeated Kane in a Street Fight via RKO. The match was a great back and forth encounter with several near pin falls. At one point Orton hit the RKO but Kane kicked out of it. Then Orton went for the punt but Kane countered with a choke slam which Orton kicked out. Kane would go out and get a chair and hit Orton with it several times. Kane went for a tombstone and a chokeslam but Orton escaped and countered with a 2nd RKO for the win. After the match, both men shook hands.
Breaking WWE News – Sin Cara could be fired from the WWE
Mark Henry came out and attacked Kane. He destroyed the big red machine and got a chair. Henry put the chair on Kane’s leg and jumped of the turnbuckles and splashed his leg like he did to The Big Show. This should make the SmackDown tapings.
Dark Match – After the tapings ended and the ring was cleared with Kane and Henry, Christian comes out and cuts a promo on Randy Orton. The Viper’s music hits and he comes out to interrupt Christian. Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase came out and interfered to attack Orton. Randy ended up laying them all out with RKOs.
It’s surprising that WWE would have a match with Christian vs. Jackson as an opener for SmackDown. Typically two champions would get more hype for a match. WWE could have placed Christian in a match against someone else as this seems like a mistake to give away for free and unannounced.
Daniel Bryan’s announcement is a bit of a surprise but I’m sure the WWE will use the next 9 months to continue to build him up. I’m enjoying the current direction of Mark Henry. He looks like a monster and should be treated like one. I’d like to see him begin a feud with Ezekial Jackson and perhaps even winning the IC belt. The WWE should continue having Henry attack and destroy the “big men” of the WWE to prove that he’s the only “giant” of the sport.
And lastly, I think Sheamus could be turned into a baby face/heel. The WWE could put him in the grey area as the fans seem to like him and want him to be successful. A face turn could give him a chance at the title. And lastly, another week of Christian keeping the title is a good thing.
