WWE SmackDown returns to SyFy this coming Friday night (Feb. 8, 2013) from Jacksonville, Florida, 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 PWTorch.com):
-- Big Show opened the show with a promo that sounds like every single one of us is going to agree with. He calls out Alberto Del Rio and exposes the double standard with fan allegiances. It was announced that the world heavyweight champion was suspended for the night.
-- Cody Rhodes def. Kofi Kingston in what was described as "dominating" fashion. Kingston has been jobbing quite a bit lately, huh?
-- Great Khali def. Titus O'Neil before Mark Henry came out and laid waste to the big man. He then called for Booker T to insert him in the Elimination Chamber match on Feb. 17, which led to Booker announcing if he could beat Randy Orton later on in the evening, he would get a spot.
-- Big Show def. Kane in a short match. Then, Del Rio lured him to the backstage area, poured paint on him after stealing the tires off his tour bus, and drove away laughing. Yep.
-- Jack Swagger def. Justin Gabriel in a squash match. He's probably getting into the Chamber match but it wasn't specifically announced at the tapings, though it could be revealed on the broadcast.
-- Tensai def. Drew McIntyre via disqualification after interference from 3MB. Brodus Clay ran in to help and you know what that led to. Looks like Tensai is a full fledged babyface now.
-- Antonio Cesaro def. Sin Cara in one of many squash matches on this show. I bet this Neutralizer looks awesome.
-- Mark Henry def. Randy Orton, clean no less, to make his way into the Elimination Chamber match. He's back, ladies and gentlemen, and the Hall of Pain is officially open for business.
There's the show, Cagesiders. How you digging it?
