WWE Smackdown TV taping report
January 15, 2013
San Antonio, Tex.
Report by Derek Sanders, PWTorch correspondent


Main Event SPOILERS 1/16

First was Randy Orton vs. U.S. champion Antonio Cesaro. Big Pop for Orton during his extended entrance. They really gave him time to play to the crowd. Little heat for Cesaro, even after recapping Raw's events where he insulted The Miz and Flair. Miz is on commentary, so I'm sure there will be comments on his side when the episode airs.

(1) Randy Orton beat U.S. champion Antonio Cesaro via DQ in a non-title match. This was easily my favorite match of the night. The match opened with a lot of striking and brawling, but also had plenty of good spots to get the crowd excited and into the match. This was probably the most response from the crowd for the evening, as well, with just as many pro-Orton chants as there were anti-Cessaro. Highlights were a superplex by Orton where he stood on the top rope and Randy's signature standing clotheslines, scoop slam, and second rope DDT. The finish came after the DDT, when Cesaro rolled out and The Shield jumped the rail and climbed the apron. Miz then jumped from commentary to stand by Orton's side. The Shield feigned leaving before rushing the ring and attacking the two Superstars - Ambrose and Rollins on Orton and Reigns on Miz.

Post-match, Rollins and Ambrose were able to beat down Orton enough to leave him and help Reigns triple-team Miz. Rollins and Ambrose held Miz up to allow Reigns to hit a pretty big Spear. The three then turned to Orton and hit him with the triple powerbomb. After The Shield left, Cesaro re-entered to pick up Miz and hit him with his finisher. The sequence ended with Cesaro holding the U.S. Title and flag standing over Miz.

Next was Prime Time Players vs. The Usos

(2) The Usos beat Prime Time Players. Everyone was pretty disinterested in most of the match. Neither team got much reaction during their entrances and the match was more of the same. Titus was able to get some reaction during a spot when Young was thrown out and O'Neil (with whistle) called for the Time Out. He also responded to the crowd trying to get The Usos back with him whistling off their cheers. PTP controlled most of the match until the finish, when one Uso hit a superkick on Young. They both climbed the top rope and teased a double splash, but one jumped onto O'Neil on the outside and the other hit the Uso splash on Young for the win.
