Spoilers: WWE SmackDown Tapings – 6/1/2012

– Thanks to Amy for the following WWE SmackDown spoilers from tonight’s tapings in Baton Rouge, Louisiana:

Dark Match:

* Dean Ambrose defeated Luke Hawkins.

SmackDown, Airing Friday:

* SmackDown opens up with World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus. He talks about No Way Out and Alberto Del Rio. David Otunga comes out and demands an apology for Sheamus running over John Laurinaitis two weeks ago. Sheamus refuses and out comes Del Rio. Otunga announces that Del Rio will be able to pick the opponent for Sheamus tonight. Otunga ends up laid out after a Brogue Kick and Del Rio flees the ring.

* Sin Cara returns with new red and white gear and new pyro. He defeats Heath Slater in a decent match with no botches.

* Hype for tonight’s WWE Title Match with Kane vs. CM Punk.

* Ezekiel Jackson comes out followed by Damien Sandow. Sandow cuts a promo and refuses to wrestle. He leaves but Zeke brings him back to the ring. Sandow ends up defeating Jackson with his neckbreaker finisher.

* Backstage segment with Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler wants to face Sheamus tonight and Del Rio picks him as the opponent.

* Ryback defeated two local wrestlers in another squash match.

* Vickie Guerrero comes out with Dolph Ziggler and cuts a promo on Sheamus.

* Sheamus defeated Dolph Ziggler after a Brogue Kick. Jack Swagger interfered but it backfired and allowed Sheamus to get the win.

* Zack Ryder and Santino Marella defeated Darren Young and Titus O’Neil in under 2 minutes. Big Show came out after the match and beat up Santino on the stage, throwing him into the set. Show went and beat up Ryder next. Show knocked Santino out with a knockout punch as the crowd bood.

* Daniel Bryan is backstage trying to convince AJ Lee that CM Punk is using her.

* Cody Rhodes defeated Tyson Kidd in a quick match. Christian was on commentary and they had words after the match.

    why do u idiots keep complaining about rhodes?HES FEUDING WITH CHRISTIAN whos a veteran in this business so i hardly would say hes doing nothing hell he isnt even jobbing it says he WON the match against tyson kidd so why yall still whinin and complainin for

  • adam

    Its kind of crazy they just stoped the push of cody and now he is basically doing nothing. Also @ nick. I think cessaro is no were to be found as of right now because they are going to bring him back with chris hero and have KOW team up and help the tag division a little bit. HOpefully they can sign shelly and maybe pry sabin away from tna and bring the guns in as well.

  • yofits

    no HUNICO this week?
    fail …

  • Irish Bulldog

    Billions of Dolla’s….Billions…Billions…billions of dolla’s :::dances like a fool:::

  • Tyler(:

    That’s what I meant, that 2 months of crap was nothing because IMO he kept his heat and now he’s feuding with Christian.

    Rhodes is still young, he’ll be top player sooner or later, just gotta deal with the crap stages of watching them basically do nothing.

    Also, side note: you forgot the (:, there’s another Tyler on here and I get terribly confuzzled without the smile/noob face.

  • Jimbo


    You don’t derail a superstar’s push like they’ve done with Rhodes. I don’t see how it helps to have him on this awful streak. Thankfully though, he’s in a feud with Christian, and he will come out looking like gold.

  • Mabry

    although i also hate the squash matches agains unknown guys (specially against unknown guys), at least WWE is leting us see a bit of Ryback, before puting him in the title picture. I mean thats what they did with Del Rio, i do think hes great but hes been facing the wwe/world champions almost since day one, without leting the fans getting to know him better before!!!…. And correct me if am wrong, but didnt WCW do the same thing that WWE is doing with Ryback, with Goldberg…

  • scooter

    I’m actually okay with the three way as long as kane takes the fall setting up the obvious “you never beat me” argument leading to a submission match at summerslam

  • Tyler(:

    Unless it was a typo, but I dunno :p

  • Sammo

    It’s CURT actually. Just saying.

  • Tyler(:

    Danny, It’s either Luke Hawx with a play on his indy name, or just a random indy wrestler with that name.

    It’s just a last name, Jeez chill out man.

  • DirtsheetDanny

    Luke Hawkins? he must be a ‘local competitor’ unless you mean KURT Hawkins

  • xXx


    a sin cara-del rio feud will be awesome but we’ll need subtitles

  • ant

    since noone else haa the balls to say it for fear of dislikes I’M gonna say it..For people who constantly tune in to WWE Programming yall sure do bitch alot i mean i understand a few complainta here and there but damn people EVERY show dosent have to be 100 percent perfect like geez

  • Dang

    No Divas,for the second time in a row in this week I have to say FACK WWE

  • Tyler(:

    Jimbo, It doesn’t matter if it’s his only win, they’re not gonna give him a monster push with win after win.

    Wrestlers can have “losing streaks” you know.

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    The WWE writers seriously need to come up with better storylines. And please, no stood romance ones. I understand they hired some soap opera writers but don’t make everything lame!

  • Craig

    While I understand the dislike for Ryback’s squashes, when he came out the crowd was actually behind him. “Ryback” chants actually lasted longer than the “Goldberg” chants. That may have had something to do with the jobbers hailing from Tuscaloosa and using “Roll Tide” as their rallying cry while in Baton Rouge, but he appears to be getting over with the live crowds.

  • Stevie P

    “He defeats Heath Slater in a decent match with no botches.”

    BAHAHAHA, this sentence made me laugh.

  • SMACKDOWN ? do they still Air that Show ? , oh wait So , there’s something other than replaying events form Last RAW , which was Also SUCKED

  • SpudimusPrime89

    Oh great, another roleplaying troll.

  • I’m a lumberjack and I’m ok I sleep all night and I work all day

  • Jimbo

    And would you believe that’s only Rhodes’ 2nd televised win in 2-3 months?

  • fivogoeswest

    I just wish the Cruiserweight title was back. At least that gives somewhat of a purpose of having guys like sin cara or heath slater around competing cause let’s face it guys like them will never have a chance at a heavyweight or WWE title.

  • poko

    Still don’t understand why the WWE thinks people want to see meaningless squash matches. It’s not impressive to see a guy beat up people we don’t even know. The outcome is absolutely certain which means there is zero excitement.

    This trend really, really annoys me. It’s like the put a quota on competitive match-ups. Will the world really end if the fans see more than two quality matches in one night?

  • ant

    I kinda wanna see a Sin Cara/Alberto Del Rio feud

  • Nick

    Antonio Cesaro is MIA again. -.- Fuck Just keep Cesaro and Sandow and make them two a team possibly. Wish Rhodes/Kidd was longer but was probably a one-sided squash. Could of had potential to be a great match. Looking forward to Sin Cara’s match considering he actually didn’t botch anything this time, lmao.

  • what?

    sounds like another shit show .this is just a shame wwe has some great wrestlers that the writers have no clue how to use them . who will turn face Jack Swagger or Dolph Ziggler ?

  • Deva

    ezkiel jackson jobs just as much as heath slater, might get both the releases soon, does ryback ever get any real competition? what about ryback vs sheamus? or punk? orton? sin cara even, just no more local jobbers

  • Robinson

    I like how otunga is jl stooge but he never seems to win or get any sort of title shot at anything lmao

  • SYM

    Is this SmackDown or iCarly?
