Thanks to WrestlingINC.com reader Luke Lyons for sending in these results from tonight's SmackDown live event in College Station, TX:
Match 1 – Damien Sandow vs. Miz
The night started out with Sandow making his way to the ring and insulting the crowd as usual. He pointed out that we were not even worth his time and that the crowd had no manners. AWESOME!!! Miz's music hits and Reed Arena erupted for him. The match was overall a solid match and Miz was impressive. There was a lot of back and forth, Sandow hit his Elbow of Disdain but Miz kicked out at two. Finally, Miz locks in the figure four and Sandow eventually taps out.
Winner – Miz
The divas were up next with a typical Layla diva effort, shaking and dancing more than wrestling, but did hit the nice double rope jump move of hers. Tamina had a few impressive moves throughout the bought and Aksana had a nice leg choke with Layla in the corner that lifted Layla off the mat. Kaitlyn hit a few shoulder bumps taking out her competition and eventually ended by spearing Aksana. It was overall a decent match and if the Divas actually got this much airtime, the state of their division would be in much better shape.
Winner – Layla and Kaitlyn
Swagger's music hits and is instantly booed for even appearing. He gets in the ring and proceeds to do his same skit from Raw and SmackDown this past week. Zeb then gets on the microphone and starts to talk about immigrants and that there were probably some illegal immigrants in the arena. Sin Cara's music hits and he gets a pop from the kids in attendance. Sin Cara was never in control of this match and Swagger got the easy victory with some impressive slams and the eventual ankle lock. On a side note, a "jailbird" and "Swagger go back to jail" chant were heard throughout the arena.
Winner – Jack Swagger
Match 4 – Fandango vs. Ted DiBiase
The most boring match of the night by far. Fandango comes out with a dancer in the entrance, she does not accompany him to the ring, but he does strut his stuff in the ring for what seemed like an eternity. Side note, his ring gear are typical "Dancing with the Stars" attire…pink sequined pants and matching vest. "I come from Money…" hits on the speakers and most of the crowd seemed surprised with Ted making his way to the ring. DiBiase got a nice crowd pop, but ultimately lost to Fandango in a very lack luster match.
Winner – Fandango
Cody Rhodes makes his way to the ring with a load boos, while to counter this Orton got probably the biggest cheers of the night. This match was probably one of, if not the best bought of the night. Orton tended to show of for most of the match, going for a ten punch count in the turnbuckle and later nailing a superplex from the top rope. Rhodes countered back numerous times but was unsuccessful and at one point jumped the railing and tried to leave the match. Randy did his, as Cole would say "Vintage Orton" move set and began to hit a flurry of clotheslines, the quick-snap slam and DDT from the ropes. Rhodes eventually countered with a "Cross Rhodes" but Orton manage to kick out at two. Rhodes then went for the "Disaster Kick" and Orton caught him with the "RKO." Overall, an amazing match.
Winner – Randy Orton
Match 6 – The Great Khali and Brodus Clay vs. Primo and Epico
Before the match could ever begin, the Funkadactyls and Rosa got in a dancing match, then Cameron laid out Rosa with a spear and the guys had to pull the girls apart. Brodus started the match and toyed with Primo, before eventually tagging in Khali. At one point in the match, it almost appeared as if Khali was about to fall out of the ring trying to exit over the top rope. Brodus hits the running splash, end of match… now time for dancing with the fans.
Winner – The Great Khali and Brodus Clay
Match 7 – Wade Barrett vs. Sheamus (non-title match)
Wade Barrett comes to the ring with no support from the WWE Universe and then the place erupts when Sheamus hits the ring. Wade tried to cut a heel promo at first but did not get much heat, nothing compared to Swagger earlier in the night. Sheamus and Barrett have a good solid match with a lot of back and forth, and a lot of outside the ring activity. Sheamus does the "vintage" move-set and gets Barrett in the ropes for the smashing to begin, and tries for the "Brogue Kick" twice but unsuccessful each time. Eventually, Sheamus lands the "White Noise" and puts Barrett away.
Winner – Sheamus
But wait… as Sheamus is heading to the back, Barrett calls him a "ginger" and tells him that he is still standing so he didn't finish the job. Sheamus sprints back to the ring and the two exchange blows, with Barrett eventually getting the better of Sheamus. Sheamus then gets up to catch Barrett with the "Brogue Kick" and the arena erupts. Barrett grabs the mic after being laid out for a good 4 minutes and states he is still the Intercontinental Champion. Great match!
Ricardo comes out and introduces Del Rio with a huge pop from the fans in attendance. Del Rio cuts a promo to the home crowd and tells them that he has a friend that he wants to bring to the ring. Texas A&M Football head coach, Kevin Sumlin, makes his way to the ring. Ricardo is holding a title belt in its zipper bag and Del Rio finally states that from one champion to another, he would like to present him with an honorary World Heavyweight Title. Sumlin begins to talk when Big Show's music comes over the speakers. Big Show then goes on to cut a promo about how Sumlin is mediocre and that he coaches for a second rate university and the boos have never been louder. Show asks Sumlin to sit ringside and watch a true champion in action. The match begins and there is a constant back and forth before the No DQ comes into play. Del Rio hits Big Show with multiple chair shots and then repeated blows with the kendo stick. He then introduces a table and it appears show is going to power bomb Del Rio through the table that was set up in the corner, but Del Rio counters by spinning out of it and Show goes through the table. Big Show then hits a chokeslam later in the match, but Del Rio kicks out at two. A "Beat the Hell Outta Big Show" yell erupts in typical Aggie fashion. Another table is introduced to the match and it appears show is going to jump from the turnbuckle onto a motionless Del Rio on the table, but Ricardo comes in and hits Big Show in the head with the metal bucket that he has been carrying to the ring. Finally, Texas A&M's Coach Sumlin gives Del Rio his honorary title belt and Del Rio connects with Big Show's cranium. Game, Set, Match.
Winner – Alberto Del Rio (assisted by Sumlin and Rodriguez)
