WWE SmackDown opened with Miz TV. The Miz's guests were Big Show and Randy Orton. Miz talked up Randy Orton and Big Show's upcoming match at Extreme Rules. Show trash-talked Orton. Orton talked about his decision to trust Big Show backfiring. He said this Sunday he will right that wrong.
Jack Swagger and Zeb Coulter interupt and come out. They talk about how this Sunday they will make Alberto Del Rio say "I Quit" or as they would say in his language, "No Mas."
Alberto Del Rio came out and said the only thing people will remember this Sunday is that Del Rio became the number one contender. He called Coulter "Jumanaji Man."
Mark Henry came out and talked about setting a world record for pulling semis. He said this Sunday people will remember him for beating Sheamus because he's the strongest man in the world.
Sheamus then came out and promised to leave Henry battered and bruised with welts this Sunday. Sheamus then said why wait until this Sunday and took a strap and chased the heels away.
1. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns defeated The Uso's. The Shield won after a Reigns spear. They were setting up one of the Usos for the triple power bomb when Kofi Kingston made the save. He hit the Shield with a chair and the Shield ran off.
2. Brodus Clay and Sweet T (w/Cameron, Naomi) beat The Prime Time Players. Titus O'Neil cut an entertaining promo. He mispronounced Wichita and said real Prime Time Players went to Kansas University. The PTPers were in control early and Titus did his patented seal chant. Darren Young missed a running attempt in the corner and Tensai tagged in Brodus. Titus broke up a pin attempt, then Young got sandwiched by the big boys. Brodus hit a splash for the win.
3. Chris Jericho defeated Antonio Cesaro in 12:00. Fans chanted boring as Cesaro started in control at a slow pace. Jericho got them further on his side with a dropkick that forced Cesaro to regroup at ringside. Cesaro hit an upper-cut and some chops but got another drop kick from Jericho from the middle rope. Jericho reversed a suplex then hit the signature dropkick from the middle rope to the excitement of fans. Jericho missed a corner splash and vaulted out of the ring. Fans cheered him on as he recovered but Cesaro went back on the attack, throwing Jericho into the barricade.
Back in the ring, he got a two-count on the dazed Jericho. Jericho went for the walls of jericho but Cesaro struggled away. Cesaro lifted his knees on Jericho's moonsault attempt to regain momentum. The back-and-forth continued as Jericho got a near-fall. Jericho managed to barely kick out of a backbreaker. Jericho fought back from a sleeper and rolled up Cesaro for a two count. Cesaro earned his own 2-count immediately after and put the headlock back on. A weakened Jericho struggled to fight back and was taken down again. Jericho tried to break the headlock by backing Cesaro into the ropes but was unsuccessful. He finally broke free and scored an axe-handle from the top rope.
Fandango's gold stage setup fell in front of the Titan Tron but Jericho was oblivious. He attempted a top-rope move but was hit by the upper-cut for another near fall. Jericho put on the Walls of Jericho and Cesaro tapped out.
Summer Rae entered with Fandango seemingly closely behind. Jericho watched the stage but was attacked from behind. He quickly got the best of Fandango, who ran off, then Jericho hit Cesaro with a Codebreaker...
Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger were on the Tron for a prerecorded promo. Colter ranted against the government from a conservative standpoint, touching on shady IRS activities and the Benghazi situation. Colter blasted Del Rio and said he wasn't one of us. Colter questioned whether Ziggler was really injured or just afraid. He said he and Swagger were vilified for speaking the truth. He said real Americans never quit, but Del Rio would. He said Del Rio would quit, take his sombrero, and run back home. Swagger finished it off with "we the people"...
Sandow gave a promo from the stage about Miz and how his winning would come to a screeching halt and that Rhodes would embarrass him on Sunday...
4. The Miz defeated...
