WWE SmackDown Spoilers for Dec. 27, 2013: Happy Holidays!

WWE hit Corpus Christi, Texas, to tape "SmackDown" last week thanks to the holidays throwing the schedule off. Still, we've got complete spoilers for the show, featuring continued fallout from "TLC".

WWE SmackDown returns to SyFy this coming Friday night (Dec. 27, 2013) from Corpus Christi, Texas, but the show was taped last week thanks to the holidays throwing the schedule off a bit. Still, full spoilers are readily available if you're the impatient type who doesn't want to wait for the payoff.

Unwrap that present early:

- The opening of the show featured a John Cena promo -- complete with a planted Hulk Hogan reference -- asking for another crack at Randy Orton and the WWE world heavyweight championship. Then, chaos. The Shield hit the ring to take out Cena, leading to Mark Henry trying to make the save. But he failed, so Big E. Langston hit the ring and that's when the babyfaces got the advantage. This led to Kane booking the rest of the show: Langston vs. Ambrose, Reigns vs. Henry, and Cena vs. Rollins.

- Wyatt Family def. The Usos in a glorified squash match that ended the way all Wyatt squash matches do: with Bray getting in the ring and hitting Sister Abigail on some poor victim.

- A Randy Orton interview with Renee Young is used for an angle with Dolph Ziggler to set up a match between the two later in the evening.

- Antonio Cesaro def. Cody Rhodes in a solid but short sinles match.

- Prime Time Players def. Rybaxel in a nothing tag match. For what it's worth, Darren Young pinned Curtis Axel for the finish.

- Orton def. Ziggler in a very good match. Ziggler really went all out to make the champion look good, doing the job clean to the RKO. Then, he took a rough post-match beatdown.

- Daniel Bryan def. Damien Sandow in a good TV match, fairly straightforward. Bray Wyatt cut another promo post-match.

- Big E. Langston def. Dean Ambrose with the Big Ending in a good match.

- Roman Reigns def. Mark Henry in a HOSS FIGHT. Reigns sold well for Henry's heavy offense but the spear was put over strong, earning the pinfall on "The World's Strongest Man".

- John Cena def. Seth Rollins in a good match that helped showcase the latter's ability to be a much bigger star one day on a singles level.

- Really, for yet another taped show far ahead of time for the holiday season, the wrestling is incredibly good, enough to carry the show to an entertaining two hours worth your time on a Friday night during the holiday season.
