: Big Show opened up SmackDown this week, he said it wasn’t fair he had to defend his title without enough time to prepare, and that Alberto Del Rio acted like a criminal attacking him in his hotel room last week.
: Big Show also told the WWE Universe before ADR attacked him he signed a World Heavyweight contract and would face him at Elimination Chamber. Show then said Booker T is the reason all of this has happened and that Booker T is jealous of him and all of his accomplishments.
: Booker T’s music hit and out came the SmackDown General Manager. Big Show asked Booker T who gave him his hotel information, and that wasn’t what Big Show didn’t need to be worried about that; he needed to worry about his opponent tonight, Kane.
Kofi Kingston v. Cody Rhodes
: Cody Rhodes slid out of the ring to avoid Kofi Kingston, Kofi ran toward the apron but stopped and fooled Cody; Rhodes not happy about being joked with, he ran near the apron and Kofi flew through the second rope and took out Rhodes.
: Kofi went for the ‘Trouble in Paradise’ but Cody moved out of the way. Cody hit the ‘Disaster Kick’ and the reverse DDT to pick up the much-needed win over Kofi.
: This match was well wrestled; I wish it went a little longer. Both men are great in the ring, but they are both stuck in a mid card rut.
: Back stage Daniel Bryan told Kane he forgave him for costing him his match. Bryan said he wanted to be my Kane’s side for his match against Big Show. Kane told him to not speech anymore, except to congratulate him after he choke slams Big Show to oblivion.
: Raw recap, like we didn’t get enough of those on Monday.
Titus O’Neil v. The Great Khali
: Khali hit his to quote Michael Cole, ‘vintage’ chop on O’Neil in the corner, but Titus fought back and took Khali down to the mat.
: Khali reversed Titus’ counter attempt and hit the big chop on Titus to pick up the win.
: After the match Mark Henry came out, tossed aside the beaten Titus O’Neil and entered the ring. Khali tried to defend himself against Henry, but the returning beast lifted and slammed down the giant.
: Henry then grabbed a microphone. He said Booker T overlooked him for the Elimination Chamber match, and that was a mistake.
: Booker T came out and told Henry he couldn’t attack people from behind because this is SmackDown, logical right?
: Henry said there wasn’t enough room for him to be in the Elimination Chamber so Booker T better make him before he takes out all the participants in the match. Booker T said Mark Henry needed to prove himself since he has been out for nine months. If he beat Randy Orton tonight he would be in the Elimination Chamber match.
Kane v. Big Show
: Big Show’s frustration is showing, he attacked Kane as the bell rang and took Kane to the outside. Show threw Kane against the ring post and tossed him back in.
: Kane tried to gain some momentum but Show caught him with a spear but only for a near fall. Show tried to hit Kane from the second rope but Kane moved and was back on top.
: Kane hit a big time DDT and again went for the top rope, this time he took out the Big Show. Kane grabbed at his ankle and hobbled to his feet. Show was waiting and hit the WMD for the win over Kane.
: After the match Del Rio appeared on the titan tron, Alberto said he made friends with Show’s tour bus driver. Big Show walked to the outside and all of Big Show’s tires were missing from his tour bus.
: Alberto, from the top of the bus poured orange paint all over Show and his bus. Ricardo Rodriguez then drove himself and Del Rio away in the tow truck carrying Show’s tires.
Jack Swagger v. Justin Gabriel
: Swagger took Gabrielle to the corner, and then picked him up like he weighted nothing and slammed him to the mat.
: Justin tried to fight his way out of the corner, and flipped over the top rope but Swagger moved.
: Jack rolled Gabriel back into the ring, power bombed him then applied the ‘Patriot Act’ ankle lock, forcing Gabriel to tap out.
: A vignette was shown for Fandango, when are we ever going to see him? In my opinion Fandango seems to be just a skinny Brodus Clay.
Tensai v. Drew McIntyre
: McIntyre tried to punch Tensai, but it didn’t faze him. Tensai slapped McIntyre back and went to slam Drew down but the rest of 3MB entered the ring and began attacking Tensai. Brodus Clay ran down to make the save.
: After the match Brodus’ music hit, Brodus and the Funkadactyls got Tensai to break into dance.
Antonio Cesaro v. Sin Cara
: This would be a nice feud for the United States Title but there’s no way the WWE can concentrate on anything other than The Rock.
: Sin Cara tried to use his athleticism to take down Cesaro, but Antonio was too strong and took Sin Cara down.
: Sin Cara countered Cesaro and flipped over the top rope but Cesaro caught him with the flying forearm, followed by his finisher to pick up the win.
: The Miz was being interviewed by Matt Striker, he was asked about his encounter of Brock Lesnar. Miz said he has battled many SuperStars but he saw something different in Brock Lesnar. Antonio Cesaro walked in and told The Miz he was a typical American. Miz and Cesaro then began brawling until referees broke it up.
Randy Orton v. Mark Henry If Henry wins he will be entered into the SmackDown Elimination Chamber Match
: Henry tossed Orton over the top rope, and went to throw him against the ring post but Orton countered it and Henry hit the post instead.
: Back in the ring Orton punched his way back into the match, but from the second rope Henry close lined Orton over the top rope and down to the mat.
: Randy tried to close line Henry down but the big man wouldn’t go down. Finally Orton hit a drop kick followed by his patent DDT from the second rope. Orton began pounding the mat looking for the RKO but Henry countered and hit the ‘World’s Strongest Slam’ for the win and was now in the Elimination Chamber match.
