WWE Smackdown spoilers for May 11, 2012, featuring Sheamus vs Chris Jericho

Just two episodes of Smackdown separate us from Over the Limit on May 20.

Last night, WWE descended upon Roanoke, VA to tape Friday's (May 11) installment of Smackdown and much of the show worked towards setting up the pay-per-view (PPV) as weekly shows should.

What can you expect?

A repeat of Monday's tag team match between the four heavy-hitters of World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho and Alberto Del Rio kicks off the show but soon devolves into chaos. All four men see action later on in the night in singles competition.

The Daniel Bryan and A.J. love saga takes an interesting twist and poor Teddy Long gets his heart broken.

We start off with a repeat of this Monday's tag team matchb between the tandem of Sheamus and Randy Orton taking on Alberto Del Rio and Chris Jericho. The match ends in a huge brawl which leads to a no contest or a double disqualification.

The Chickbusters explode! A.J. defeats her best friend Kaitlyn. Daniel Bryan comes out and says he sees her in a new light. He's moving onto Over the Limit and winning the WWE Championship and also to... Kaitlyn! A.J. has a Kathy Bates Misery look and leaves.

This leads to a match between Bryan and The Big Show which "The American Dragon" wins by Montreal Screwjob-esque submission thanks to John Laurinaitis. The General Manager cuts a promo on Show post-match.

RyBack squashed Heath Slater.

Teddy Long then has to, once again, introduce Antonio Cesaro and then sit by while he beats Riley. Aksana then dumps Teddy and makes out with Cesaro.

Orton defeats Del Rio after Ricardo Rodrigez tries to splash "The Apex Predator" off the top rope but ended up getting RKO'd. The Mexican aristocrat applied his armbar after the match.

R-Truth defeats Jack Swagger and the Smackdown newcomers Titus O'Neil and Darren Young beat Santino and Zack Ryder.

Matt Striker is backstage with Damien Sandow who questions Striker's teaching credentials. Ha, nice.

And in the main event, Jericho beats Sheamus by DQ after a Del Rio attack on "Y2J." Afterwards, all four Superstars in the World Heavyweight title match at Over the Limit brawl.
