Smackdown taping for Friday, December 17
For the final WWE Smackdown episode leading to the TLC PPV...
Edge promo starts the show. He introduces a video montage of last few week's events, talks about the World Title match this Sunday, and leaves. Pretty uneventful.
Miz vs. Rey Mysterio is later tonight.
Teddy Long and Edge are talking in back. The TLC match is changed to Fatal Four-way with Del Rio and Mysterio added.
(1) Kofi Kingston & Kaval beat IC champion Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger. Great match as expected.
Miz was interviewed by Jack Korpela. He talks about how he has had a busy week and promises to put Orton through a table on Sunday.
JTG has a new segment called Str8 Outta Brooklyn talking about the TLC PPV. He has a good Justin Beiber joke.
Kelly Kelly and Drew McIntyre are in the back. Drew is hitting on Kelly Kelly, then Kaitlyn interrupts.
"Dashing" Cody Rhodes's weekly grooming tip is about hair and how to blow dry.
(2) Cody Rhodes beat Chris Masters. Short, uneventful match.
(3) WWE champion The Miz beat Rey Mysterio after interference by Del Rio. Great match. Afterward, Edge runs in to help Rey. Teddy Long comes out and makes a tag match for later tonight with Del Rio and Miz vs. Rey and Edge.
Lay-Cool promo time. They try to call off the tables match, then Natalya and Beth Phoenix come out with a table gift wrapped like Christmas present. After typical back and forth banter, Beth unwraps the table and it's pink with a painting of Lay-Cool looking like a couple of witches. Catfight ensues with Beth and Natalya trying to suplex Layla through the table, but Michelle saves her.
(4) WWE Unified tag champions Santino & Koslov beat Tyler Reks & Chavo Guerrero.
(5) WWE champion The Miz & Alberto Del Rio vs. Rey Mysterio & Edge goes to a No Contest. Kane interferes to have the match thrown out, Edge and Kane go at it, and the entire roster runs out trying to separate them. All hell breaks loose, Drew McIntyre attacks Rey at ringside, and Edge eventually spears Kane. Awesome Ending. End taping.
Post-Smackdown Dark Match: Edge beat World Hvt. champion Kane via DQ; Kane retained the World Title. Kane hit Edge with a chair for the DQ. Kane tried again, but he was speared to close the show.
