Dark Matches:

* CM Punk defeated Chris Jericho in an Anything Goes match.

* John Cena, Randy Orton and Sheamus beat Lord Tensai, Kane and Dolph Ziggler.

SmackDown, Airing Friday:

* Attendance looks low but there is a lot of Daniel Bryan chants. Heat for Michael Cole as he comes out with Booker T to the announcers table.

* John Laurinaitis opens the show and talks about facing John Cena at Over the Limit. Laurinaitis wants sympathy and wants the fans to pray for him. WWE Champion CM Punk interrupts to a huge pop.

Punk comes out and is glad that Laurinaitis will finally be terminated after John Cena beats him on Sunday. Punk wishes Laurinaitis the best in his future endeavors to a big pop from the crowd. Punk goes on ripping Laurinaitis until he’s had enough. Laurinaitis tells everyone to go to hell and announces Punk vs. Kane for tonight.

* WWE Tag Team Champions Kofi Kingston and R-Truth beat Darren Young and Titus O’Neil.

* Zack Ryder is backstage filming his YouTube show when Damien Sandow is shown walking to the ring.

* Sandow comes out as Yoshi Tatsu waits in the ring. Sandow cuts a promo and doesn’t think Tatsu is worthy of wrestling him tonight. Yoshi taunts Sandow and calls him a chicken. Sandow lays Tatsu out with a modified neckbreaker and leaves.

* A Big Show video airs.

* Backstage segment with Sheamus and Randy Orton hyping up the four-way title match at Over the Limit.

* Daniel Bryan beat Zack Ryder with the Yes Lock.

* Kane beat CM Punk by DQ with Daniel Bryan staying out for commentary. Bryan tried to interfere with a chair shot but hit Kane instead. Kane, thinking Punk hit him with the chair, laid the WWE Champion out.

* Santino Marella beat Cody Rhodes in a champion vs. champion match.

* Randy Orton defeated Sheamus in the main event with a roll-up. The title was not on the line. After the match, they shook hands but Orton left Sheamus laying with a RKO.

    jimbo youre retarted and u make no sense get the fuck outta here

  • Jimbo

    Go go die in a fire

  • Nick

    Don’t care for Ryback. But why the hell is Cesaro not on the show? -.-

  • ant

    hell hes not half as stale as crimson in tna

  • ant

    dont understand all the ryback haters hes actually not that bad in the ring and he has a certain type of intensity i havent really seen in a long time i could see him getting pushed in the future honestly

  • adam

    Though i dont think he is jobbing i do find it kind of idiotic that he lost to santino marella i mean come on of the two who is the more serious and more deserving of there title… Also i dont really mind there being no ryback because i would rather see sandow and hopefully in the near future dean ambrose then him anyways. I also would like to say i think that this may be when cena finally turns heel. I say it will be like a NWO moment were big johnny pokes cena he falls then gets pinned and larunities stays gm. I just can’t see him being taken away from the spot after all this and after raw finally gets a general manager i cant see them taking him out of the position.

  • Tyler(:

    @Jimbo. How many times, learn the fucking meaning of Jobbing you idiot.

  • Whooper

    I hope this means Ryback will play some part at OTL

  • kitkrock

    No Hunico, THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! Push Hunico, Vince you RACIST!

  • ant

  • Jimbo

    OH WTF, Rhodes goes from jobbing to Big Show to jobbing to Saninto freaking Marella?! Isn’t WWE supposed to be supposedly grooming this guy as a future WHC? How does losing to those two goofs do that?!

  • ant

    oh well no ryback but ill tune in to watch kane vs cm punk and orton vs sheamus and maybe even to see santino vs rhodes

  • ant

  • Corn

  • kitkrock
