WWE Friday Night Smackown 3/22/2013 Results

WWE Friday Night Smackown 3/22/2013 Results

Last week's show is here:

Orton said he wanted Big Show as his partner. Both men agreed that they didn't trust him. Orton said, "Sometimes it's the devil you know versus the one you dont".
Show said he didn't like or trust them but if they team up, no one can stop them.
Booker T said he needed to see if they could get along and signed a 6-man with the three tonight.

Mark Henry vs Zack Ryder
Mark Henry won with the WSS in a quick squash. You know the deal here. He hit two more WSS's until Ryback came out.
"You ain't nothin'. I'll destroy you." - Mark Henry
 They collided in ring and Ryback hit a clothesline to send him out.
Teddy Long went to Vickie Guerrero to book the Ryback vs Mark Henry match at Wrestlemania. He told Booker T that and Booker T got angry. Booker T told Teddy that "You work for me, not Vickie Guerrero". Teddy Long said, "I thought I worked with you, not for you". They've been teasing tension with Booker T and Teddy for months, but I have no idea where it is going. Maybe Teddy Long can be the GM of Main Event.

Dolph Ziggler vs Kofi Kingston
"I'm gonna have that man's baby. And they're gonna have glorious hair and abs of a greek god." - AJ to Dolph
Dolph Ziggler won with the ZigZag. The match was good but Dolph and Kofi never have as good of a match as they should have. I always think they could do something really awesome but it never happens. This had some good stuff in it and I liked the ending with Kofi taking a Fameasser on the floor. AJ was at the booth the whole time and was as much the focus as anything else. Big E hit a Big Ending on Kofi after.

Orton, Sheamus and Show argued in the back:
They argued over who should take the lead and Orton said if they don't get along, they will all be sitting ducks. Cole brought up again how odd Orton's behavior is.

Jack Swagger vs Chris Jericho
Zeb and Jack talked and pretty much said nothing. They said sometime bones need to broken with Ricardo in Jack Swagger's America.
"What is he doing?" - Cole
"He's Fandangoing." - JBL
Jack Swagger got the win with the Swagger Bomb after Fandango interfered. Well, I figured out when Fandango will debut and it will be at Wrestlemania against Chris Jericho. The match was okay. Not as good as last week's though. There was nothing too special about it though.

"It's Fandango." - Fandango

Show said he was going to put his whole heart into this and they need to get on the same page.

The Scholars just introduced the Bella Twins quickly.
"Him and Bull Nakano were once this hot item in Tokyo." - JBL on Tensai

Tensai and Brodus Clay vs The Rhodes Scholars
This was thrown out immediately without anything happening. Tensai's Davey Crockett hat and JBL namedropping Bull Nakano were the highlights.
Sheamus said he trusted Orton and trusted Big Show as much as Show trusted him.
Antonio Cesaro vs The Miz
I don't know if its just me but it feels like we haven't seen Cesaro in forever.
The Miz beat Antonio Cesaro with a Figure Four. BOOOO. Cesaro deserves better and I hope he gets on Mania. The match was fine but mostly due to Cesaro. I loved his double stomp.
Miz put the Figure Four again on Cesaro after and him and Wade stared each other down.

Randy Orton, Sheamus and The Big Show vs 3MB
Sheamus got the win with a Brogue Kick. This was all squash here as expected and I cannot believe they had this in the main event.
Sheamus and Show argued after until Shield's music hit.
All three then got into it as The Shield surrounded the ring.
They should shoot from this angle more often.
The Shield then left without doing anything.

Overall thoughts: This was the Orton/Show/Sheamus Show. If you like that storyline, you will be into this one. The wrestling was okay but nothing special and there wasn't much else going on besides the Show/Sheamus/Orton storyline.

  1. Damn, Cesaro losing to the Miz. I guess in today's WWE, winning one of the Jobber Belts is guaranteed to kill a push.
