No way in hell.

The 685th edition of WWE Friday Night SmackDown came to you from the BOK Center in Tulsa, OK. After being defeated by WWE Champion CM Punk by the most dubious of ways on the debut episode of WWE Main Event, World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus would be looking to take out his aggression on another champion as the World Heavyweight Champion would go one-on-one with Intercontinental Champion The Miz in a non-title, Champion vs. Champion Match. Also, with Zack Ryder & Santino Marella, Rhodes Scholars, and Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara all advancing to the Semi-Finals, the final First Round Match of the #1 Contenders Tag Team Tournament would take place on SmackDown as former tag team champions R-Truth & Kofi Kingston faced The Prime Time Players with the winning team advancing to the Semi-Finals to face Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara.

Match Results

Detailed Results

Four weeks before he challenges Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Title at Hell in a Cell, SmackDown kicks off with the #1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Title, “The World’s Largest Athlete” Big Show. Big Show says that everyone has confidence until he punches them in the skull, adding that he has never faced Sheamus one-on-one, but Sheamus will join a very elite list of victims. Big Show continues that he punched guys like Edge, Chris Jericho, CM Punk, and John Cena right in the mouth. The #1 Contender is then interrupted by the World Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus, who says that he appreciates the “heads up”, saying that his title defense at Hell in a Cell will be the toughest of his career. Sheamus then extends his hand to Big Show, saying “let the best man win”, but the giant refuses to shake the champion’s hand, walking out of the ring. Sheamus then shows footage from WWE TLC last December where Big Show defeated Mark Henry to win the World Heavyweight Title, only to lose it Daniel Bryan 45 seconds later. Sheamus then shows what happened at WrestleMania, where he defeated Daniel Bryan in 18 seconds to win the World Heavyweight Title. This brings an enraged Big Show back to the ring as the #1 Contender extends his hand to Sheamus, but the champion just walks past “The World’s Largest Athlete”, exiting the ring with a smile on his face!

The opening match of the night was the final First Round Match in the #1 Contenders Tag Team Tournament as former tag team champions R-Truth & Kofi Kingston faced The Prime Time Players with a Semi-Final spot on the line. In the end, it was an assist on the outside from Titus O’Neil that allowed Darren Young to hit the double knee gutbuster on Kofi Kingston and, as Titus keeps R-Truth out of the ring, Young pins Kofi to pick up the upset win to advance to the Semi-Finals to face Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara next week!

After he and Epico failed to make it past Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara in the #1 Contenders Tag Team Tournament on RAW, Primo, with Epico & Rosa Mendes in his corner, would have the unenviable task of going one-on-one with the undefeated “Sin City Cyborg” Ryback. During the match, Primo would try to walk away from the match, but Ryback would not allow it as the unstoppable machine would drop Epico with a clothesline on the outside before dropping Primo with Shell Shocked in the middle of the ring en route to picking up another impressive win.

Two former Divas Champions faced off on SmackDown as Layla went one-on-one with Alicia Fox. In the end, it was Layla landing a kick to Alicia Fox’s head en route to picking up the win.

Backstage, a heated argument between WWE Champion CM Punk and “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” Dolph Ziggler, as well as Paul Heyman and Vickie Guerrero, is broken up by SmackDown General Manager Booker T, who books CM Punk to go one-on-one with Dolph Ziggler in the main event!

Wade Barrett was in action on SmackDown as “The Bareknuckle Brawler” faced a local competitor. In the end, it was Wade Barrett hitting the Souvenir on the jobber en route to picking up the win.

Then it was time for a Champion vs. Champion Match as World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus went one-on-one with Intercontinental Champion The Miz in a non-title match. During the match, Sheamus was ready to put The Miz down with the Brogue Kick, but Big Show would emerge, knocking Miz out with the W.M.D., costing Sheamus the match!

After Alberto Del Rio twice assaulted Randy Orton last week, David Otunga makes an appearance on SmackDown to “thank” Del Rio for taking “The Viper” out. It then looks like Orton would confront Otunga, but when Orton’s music plays, Alberto Del Rio and his personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez, come out instead as “The Mexican Aristocrat” mocks Orton’s ring entrance. Del Rio says that Orton would not dare be in the same building as him because Orton would wind up like a “dying snake”, touting that he cut off the head of “that snake”, proclaiming that he is the new “apex predator” of the WWE! SmackDown General Manager Booker T then comes out, saying that, with Orton out of action, Del Rio has some “free time” on his hands. With that, Booker puts Del Rio and David Otunga in a match against the WWE Tag Team Champions, Kane & Daniel Bryan!

Per the orders of Booker T, Alberto Del Rio would team with David Otunga, with Ricardo Rodriguez in their corner, to face the WWE Tag Team Champions, Team Hell No, in a non-title match. In the end, it was Kane planting David Otunga with a chokeslam, but Daniel Bryan tags himself, dropping the flying headbutt on Otunga en route to picking up the win for himself and Kane.

Backstage, Senior Advisor Theodore Long is talking to Booker T’s Assistant, Eve, as Long says that he did not tell Eve to try and suspend Beth Phoenix indefinitely last week, but the Divas Champion claims that, in his “advanced age”, Long forgot that he told her to suspend Beth Phoenix. Long says that he can see right through Eve and he knows that Eve had something to do with the attack on Kaitlyn at Night of Champions. Long continues that Booker T is not an “experienced” General Manager and Eve may have Booker fooled, but if he was in charge, Eve would be out the door. However, Booker enters the office, only hearing the end of the conversation, asking if Long is jealous of Eve, but Long says that he is his “own man”. Booker says that Long and Eve are “valuable assets”, but he cannot have them arguing all the time.

After costing Sheamus a match against The Miz, Big Show was in action on SmackDown as “The World’s Largest Athlete” went one-on-one with Tensai. During the match, Big Show winds up for the W.M.D., but Sheamus rushes out, delivering the Brogue Kick to Tensai, costing Big Show the match just like the #1 Contender did to Sheamus earlier!

Then it was time for the main event as WWE Champion CM Punk, with Paul Heyman in his corner, went one-on-one with “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” Dolph Ziggler, with Vickie Guerrero in his corner. In the end, it was CM Punk hitting the GTS on Dolph Ziggler en route to picking up the win over “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank”. After the match, CM Punk stands on the announce table and says that, he knows what he has to do to get respect and that is face John Cena inside Hell in a Cell. However, the WWE Champion again proclaims that he will still not face Cena at Hell in a Cell!
