WWE SmackDown returns to SyFy this coming Friday night (Nov. 29, 2013) from Uncasville, Connecticut, but the show was taped, as usual, on Tuesday night. That means full spoilers are readily available if you're the impatient type who doesn't want to wait a couple days for the payoff.
Unwrap that present early:
- The seeds of dissent between Randy Orton and The Authority are continuing to be planted in the form of Renee Young attempting to interview the WWE champion on his match against John Cena at TLC. His response? Silence.
- Mark Henry def. Curtis Axel with both guys rolling with their tag team partners/buddies/friends/bowlies in arms.
- A confrontation between Brodus Clay and Xavier Woods takes place. This sounds glorious. Clay, upset about Raw this past Monday night, apparently shoves Woods, calls him a rookie, and tells him he needs to learn to respect main event players like Clay. Those words being uttered by Clay should get a big pop.
- Titus O'Neil def. Great Khali in a Thanksgiving themed eating contest. His prize? A match against Antonio Cesaro later in the evening. When that match happens, Cesaro wins easy because O'Neil is feeling ill from all the food he ingested. They actually dedicate a lot of time to his puking in various places, like JBL's hat, which finds its way to Michael Cole's head.
- Los Matadores def. Plymouth Rockers, who were 3MB using The Rocker's entrance theme.
- Tons of Funk def. Xavier Woods and R-Truth in a tag match that isn't any good but at least has some meat to it with the Clay-Woods issue.
- Bray Wyatt gets some promo time and reveals that Daniel Bryan is safe and sound, although when we see him next he'll be a monster. Don't trust him, Cagesiders, last time this happened, the guy they kidnapped came back with a clothesline and a suit and tie.
- The Rhodes Bros def. The Shield via disqualification thanks to Dean Ambrose getting involved in the match. Once that happened, CM Punk ran in to even the odds, so Vickie Guerrero made a six-man tag. That match also goes to a DQ because the Wyatt Family interfered. Naturally, The Usos and Rey Mysterio show up to even the odds once again. And, of course, Guerrero makes a 12-man tag. This time, Punk hits Erick Rowan with the GTS and gets the pinfall.
That's the show, Cagesiders. Your thoughts?
