WWE SmackDown (Airing Friday):
Daniel Bryan starts off by talking about Raw on Monday and having his match stopped. He claims he’s never had a match stopped before and feels it only happened because he is considered the “weak link”. Bryan went on to say that Randy Orton should never have accepted the official’s decision but instead he “tapped me on the head like a dog”. Tonight, he wants to face Randy Orton and prove that he is not the weak link. Orton comes out and claims he helped Bryan on Monday “out of respect” but tonight, Bryan will be wheeled out on a stretcher.
Sheamus def. Cody Rhodes. Damien Sandow tried to distract Sheamus but in the end Sheamus made Rhodes submit to the Cloverleaf. After the match, Sandow attacked Sheamus.
Another Wyatt promo was shown.
Curtis Axel def. Wade Barrett. After the match, Miz tried to challenge Axel but Heyman intervened and said that his client doesn’t fight for free.
AJ Lee def. Natalya. AJ locked in the Black Widow for the submission victory.
Backstage, Aksana was bugging Kaitlyn so Kaitlyn beat her up.
Alberto Del Rio def. Chris Jericho via DQ. Both Rodrigo and Dolph Ziggler interfered causing the disqualification. After the match, Del Rio ran away and Jericho ended up hitting the Codebreaker on Ziggler. Del Rio then came back to assault Ziggler and stood over him.
Christian def. Drew McIntyre via the Killswitch. After the match, Christian did some mic work about being back but The Shield came out and triple powerbombed him.
A good backstage interview with Paul Heyman done by Rene Young. Heyman was not happy about being asked about the issues with CM Punk and didn’t want to talk about it on TV.
Daniel Bryan def. Randy Orton. I can’t remember how this one ended but I think Orton missed the RKO, so Bryan hit a suicide dive to the outside on Orton and then got back into the ring, causing Orton to be counted out.
After the match, Bryan asked for the match to be restarted but the referee refuses and walks off.
