[TV Recap] WWE Friday Night Smackdown – 1/11/2013

WWE-Friday-Night-Smackdown (Small)

With a Friday off and the potential for an actual eventful Smackdown, I’ve decided to give the show a shot this week. The main event tonight is The Big Show Vs. Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship in a Last Man Standing match. WWE has already spoiled who wins, but I won’t be doing the same because of reasons. Also The Rock will be in attendance. That’s a thing.

[TV Results] WWE Main Event – 11/28/2012

Another WWE Main Event has come and gone; here are the results/storylines notes from this week’s episode. All information comes from Chris Shore‘s live coverage over at


Match Results:

  • John Cena pinned Damien Sandow (19:30).
  • [WWE United States Champion] Antonio Cesaro pinned Zack Ryder (8:49).

Segment/Etc. Notes:

  • Commentary was handled by Michael Cole and JBL.
  • The Josh Matthews post-match backstage interview with Damien Sandow was just Matthews reading a note Sandow had written proclaiming “enlightenment was postponed due to ignorance”.
  • Next week’s showcase match pits champion against champion, as WWE I.C. Champion Kofi Kingston takes on WWE U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro. The match was made official after the Cesaro/Ryder match, when Kingston came out post-Cesaro promo and told him to back up his claim as being the greatest champion in WWE history.

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 11/26/2012

Raw 11/26 Preview:

  • After putting Ryback through a table not once but twice last week, the mysterious “NX3” (Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins/Roman Reigns) have a lot to answer for and tonight Michael Cole will try to get those answers in their first ever live interview.
  • Vickie Guerrero brings out even more evidence of a John Cena/AJ Lee “affair”. Deja vu, much? Also the John Cena/Dolph Ziggler feud that has sprung from this scandal continues and it’s Ziggler’s turn for revenge after being locked in an STF last Friday on Smackdown.
  • The Sheamus/The Big Show feud continues as we get closer to their “Chairs match” at next month’s TLC.
  • As of today, the WWE Championship reign of CM Punk has lasted 371 days with no end in sight. However Ryback is still on the hunt. Will there be a match announced for TLC? Who knows!
