Smackdown SPOILERS 7/27

WWE announced the new #1 contender to World Hvt. champion Sheamus will be determined in a fatal four-way match. The wrestlers are Rey Mysterio, Kane, Daniel Bryan, and Alberto Del Rio.

(1) IC champion The Miz beat Christian to retain the Intercontinental Title. Christian said he's invoking his re-match clause. Miz retained with a schoolboy and handful of tights. Good match. Lots of nearfalls.

World Hvt. champion Sheamus will face Cody Rhodes tonight.

(2) Ryback beat Jinder Mahal via count-out. Jinder walked out of the match. Ryback sold far too much.

(3) World Hvt. champion Sheamus beat Cody Rhodes with the Brogue Kick in a non-title match. Dolph Ziggler came out mid-match, then teased cashing in afterward, but walked off. But, Chris Jericho jumped Ziggler, rolled him into the ring, and Dolph took the Brogue Kick followed by Codebreaker from Jericho.

(4) Antonio Cesaro beat U.S. champion Santino in a non-title match.

(5) Damien Sandow beat Yoshi Tatsu.

Triple H made his advertised off-camera appearance dropping Sandow with a Pedigree (which follows Hunter taking out Sandow during the DX skit on Raw).

(6) Alberto Del Rio beat Rey Mysterio, Kane, and Daniel Bryan in a four-way #1 contender match to the World Title. Del Rio stole Rey's pin on Bryan post-619 and pinned Bryan with Ricardo Rodriguez's help.

***

Post-taping, Alberto Del Rio said he wants his title match now. Out came Sheamus for the bonus dark match main event.

Dark Match: World Hvt. champion Sheamus beat Alberto Del Rio to retain the World Title. Then, Big Johnny came out with a chair. Ricardo jumped on Sheamus's back and Johnny hit him with a chair. Sheamus rallied and hit a Brogue Kick. And, that's it.
