- In an item that was left out of our SmackDown spoiler report, Cody Rhodes returned from his storyline reconstructive face surgery wearing a Mankind-like mask and called out Rey Mysterio. They teased a big announcement for next week.
– Dolph Ziggler was coronated as the new World Heavyweight Champion at last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings, airing this Friday night on SyFy. Teddy Long then returned and ordered Dolph to defend the title immediately against Edge.
The match saw Edge defeat Ziggler and he was announced as the “new” World Heavyweight Champion. Long then fired Dolph Ziggler, which apparently leads to an open spot in Sunday’s Elimination Chamber match for the SmackDown brand.
