WWE SmackDown returns to the SyFy channel this coming Friday night (March 22, 2013) from Cincinnati, Ohio, 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 - (via details from PWTorch.com):
(1) Mark Henry squashed Zack Ryder. Ryback came out after and clotheslined Henry.
(2) Dolph Ziggler beat Kofi Kingston (again, I know).
(3) Jack Swagger beat Chris Jericho after interference from Fandango.
(4) Rhodes Scholars (w/the Bellas) vs. Brodus Clay & Tensai ended in a No Contest after the women at ringside went at it.
(5) The Miz beat U.S. champion Antonio Cesaro via submission to the figure-four in a non-title match.
(6) Big Show & Sheamus & Randy Orton squashed 3MB. Show was in total face mode, then Sheamus picked up the win over Mahal.
After the match, Show and Sheamus argued, then The Shield came out to stare down the face trio to end the show. Tons of re-matches tonight, but not bad.
Dark Match: Orton, Sheamus and Ryback beat The Shield by DQ.
That's it for SmackDown, Cagesiders. How does it sound to you?
