WWE Smackdown TV taping report
December 19, 2012
Rochester, N.Y.
Report by Matthew Prentice, PWTorch correspondent


Smackdown SPOILERS 12/28

The show opened with Big Show and Sheamus arguing about the World Title. Booker came out and said he would spin a tumbler to see who faces the Show tonight for the title. (Editor's Note: This is what WWE booking has come to.) Santino won...

(1) Brodus Clay beat Epico via pinfall with the Splash.

(2) Rhodes Scholars & Wade Barrett beat IC champion Kofi Kingston & WWE tag champions Team Hell No in a six-man tag match. Barrett got the pin on Kofi with the elbow.

(3) U.S. champion Antonio Cesaro beat Zack Ryder via pinfall.

(4) Dolph Ziggler (w/A.J. and Big E. Langston) beat The Miz with Zig-Zag. Post-match, Langston took out Miz after he insulted A.J. on the mic.

(5) Sheamus beat Brad Maddox with the Brogue kick. Booker said this was Maddox's last shot at a job if he lost.

Meanwhile, backstage, Santino pulled his hamstring and dropped out of the World Title match, so Ricardo got the shot, but Show knocked him out. Booker then gave the shot to Del Rio.

(6) Usos beat Prime Time Players via small package.

(7) World Hvt. champion Big Show beat Alberto Del Rio via DQ after Sheamus attacked him in the aisle when Show was trying to leave mid-match. The locker room then emptied and the roster forced Show back to the ring, where Del Rio and Show both worked him over.

End of show.
