WWE Smackdown 7/1/11 Results (SPOILERS)
WWE Friday Night Smackdown
Taped for July 1, 2011
The show opened with Teddy Long (STILL Smackdown GM) announcing the main event will open the show, Randy Orton vs. Mark Henry with Christian banned from ringside. The Money in the Bank briefcase was set up above the ring.
Orton b Henry via count out. Show's music played and Henry was distracted, enabling Orton to hit the RKO when both were outside the ring. Henry went crazy after the match and destroyed the music area.
Daniel Bryan b Ted DiBiase with the LeBell lock. Both came out to no music since Henry had destroyed everything.
Christian asked Teddy Long for a title shot. Didn't he just earn the shot with his win lasts week? Long was mad, as he blamed Christian for playing Show's music and screwing with the match.
But it was fixed for Sin Cara vs. Christian
Cody Rhodes b Ezekiel Jackson in a non-title match evidently to start a new IC title program. DiBiase distracted Jackson
Johnny Curtis did another promo
Kane b Wade Barrett. They focused a lot on the briefcase so this may have been for a spot in Money in the Bank.
Main segment was the Orton/Christian title match contract signing for Money in the Bank.
Christian got a lot of cheers, although nothing compared to Orton. The major stip is that if the referee makes a mistake in the match, then there is an automatic rematch. Orton signed. Before Christian could sign, Sheamus came out and laid out both men. He then tore up the contract, so it was never signed. Perhaps a three-way at the PPV?
