WWE Smackdown Taping Results & Spoilers (Air Date: 3/16/2012)

The show opened with the Peep Show segment involving Christian and guests John Laurinaitis and Teddy Long. Laurinaitis and David Otunga came out together to great heat. Long got a nice pop.

Christian asked Long and Laurinaitis to convince him which team he should be on. Laurinaitis said he’d give Christian a title shot if Team Laurinaitis wins, so Christian joined his team. Teddy tried to set up Christian in a match, but Johnny stopped it. Instead, they went with Kofi Kingston, now on Team Teddy, facing David Otunga, who wore his sweater vest.

Kofi Kingston defeated David Otunga. Otunga worked the match in his regular pants, which split halfway through the match. Funny. Kofi won with Trouble in Paradise.

There was a Daniel Bryan and AJ segment. Bryan said the dress AJ was wearing looked better on the mannequin.

A.J. (w/Daniel Bryan) defeated Brie Bella (w/Nikki). No one seems to know which Bella Twin wrestled the match. Does it matter? Bryan won with a rollup.

Chris Jericho vs. Sheamus was announced as the main event.

Rock and Cena recap from last night. At least they kept all of the part with Rock sucking up to Cleveland.

Cody Rhodes just destroyed the Big Show verbally- facing Khali next.

Cody Rhodes defeated The Great Khali. Rhodes cut a promo before the match. He won with the Beautiful Disaster springboard kick. Cody leaves the ring under obvious pain, still limping from his leg injury.

Mystical Kane pyro set up for next segment. Randy Orton came out to a big pop. Kane wants Randy’s demise at Mania, and he has it. Orton vs. Kane match was made official for WrestleMania 28.

The Big Show defeated Drew McIntyre

Mark Henry defeated Yoshi Tatsu

Jericho cuts a promo on Punk and alcohol again. Good promo. Main event is next.

Chris Jericho defeated Sheamus via countout. Sheamus has a huge welt on his back from Raw. Sheamus is going really light on the back bumps. Daniel Bryan comes out and got himself a chair. AJ has to stand. Daniel Bryan’s interference led to Sheamus being counted out.
