Welcome Everyone to the Smackdown Live Recap! Thank you for reading and tuning into a hopefully somewhat entertaining show, all we can do is hope that our time's not wasted.
Let’s see what developments come out of Thanksgiving Smackdown in 5 minutes.
We get shown the Tag Team Championship match later against the Rhodes Brothers vs. The Shield.
The announcers introduce Renee Young who is standing in the ring and introduces the “face of the WWE” Randy Orton. Renee begins the interview by asking Randy his opinions about the Authorities distraction which allowed him to pin Big Show for the 1..2..3 at Survivor Series! Randy responds that he didn’t need the appearance of the Authority, and as a matter of fact they tainted that match. Renee shows Orton a recap video from Raw when Cena challenged Orton for both their titles to get his opinion. Renee continues after the video by saying that the authority has already accepted the match, and that his championship would be on the line. Randy remains quite as Renee stood waiting for his response. She asks if he should feel “Afraid, threatened, betrayed”; as she continues the questions Orton glares at her and walks away from the interview and up the ramp.
We go to the announcers where they direct us backstage where Vickie’s Post Thanksgiving Party is being held. All the wrestlers are there eating and chatting until Vickie comes in and “Excuse Me!” She quits the room and explains that this party will not end up like all WWE parties where a fight breaks out. She does introduce a food eating challenge between the Great Khali and Titus O’Neil. Vickie counts down and both begin woofing the food with the WWE Lockers room cheering behind them.
We cut to the ring where Mark Henry’s music hits, and we cut to commercials.
Mark Henry vs. Curtis Axel
We return in the middle of Curtis Axel’s entrance with Ryback at his side.
Axel starts things with a couple of punches but Henry over powers him and Irish whips him in the corner allowing him to land a body splash on Axel as we hear Big E cheering for Henry. Ryback comes from behind Big E and pulls him off the apron distracting the ref. Back in the ring Axel slams Henry’s head into the mat giving him a 2 count. He continues by stomping on Henry’s legs and tries to go for a neck lock, but Henry overpowers him and throws Axel off. Axel locks in another neck lock and tries to keep Henry grounded, but he fights out and delivers a big boot and close line to Axel, followed by two head butts which takes Axel to the outside. Big E stands watching as Axel get up and Henry follows to the outside. Ryback tries to attack, but Big E lands a close line grounding Ryback. Axel turns and tries to punch Henry but he grabs his hand and throws him back into the ring delivering his World Strongest Slam for the 1..2..3!
Winner: Mark Henry
Backstage: R-Truth and Xavier Woods discuss his entrance last week where he took Brodus Clays entrance. Brodus comes in and pushed Woods around for taking his gimmick. He pushes Woods into the lockers as Truth and Tensai break them up.
Announcers: Recapping two matches, Los Matadores vs. Titus O’Neil & Darren Young, and The Rhodes Brothers vs. The Shield for the Tag Team Championships.
Announcers: We return Backstage to the food eating contest. AJ and Tamina crash the party, but Vickie doesn’t like that and offers that if they stay there will be a food fight between them and all of the locker room. AJ and Tamina leave and we turn back to the food eating contest where Khali collapses from eating too much. The locker-room gets excited for Titus’s win and his prize is facing Antonia Cesaro in the ring later tonight.
Plymouth Rockers (3MB) vs. Los Matadores & El Torito
Heath comes in and wants El Torito to start things off; in which he does. The bell rings and Heath goes for him but Torito rolls around him. Heath corners him into 3MB’s corner and Drew and Jinder come in to attack him, but Los Matadores run in and connected a double dropkick to 3MB taking them to the outside. El Torito runs the ropes, jumps and lands on Heath Slator followed by Los Matadores jumping on Drew and Jinder on the outside. Matadores are back in the ring where Torito tags in Fernando. Drew also gets tagged in and lands a few forearm smashes to Fernando...
