– The dark main event after last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings in Indianapolis saw John Cena defeat Cody Rhodes and Big Show in a handicap match. John Laurinaitis was advertised to be Show’s partner originally. Laurinaitis appeared after the match with a chair but Cena caught him. Cena was about to hit an Attitude Adjustment but put Laurinaitis down so the crowd could sing him Happy Birthday. Cena then blindfolds Laurinaitis and brings out referee Charles Robinson. They bring a cake from under the ring and Cena smashes it in Laurinaitis’ face. He tried attacking Cena with a chair but caught an Attitude Adjustment instead.
