SmackDown results from Columbus, GA:
For the opening of the show, John Cena came out to cut a promo for TLC. Seth Rollins interrupted it and the two trash talked each other in anticipation of their match at TLC. Rollins continued to say he is the future and it is closer to the future than Cena makes it seem. He said on Sunday he’ll make Cena a ghost, a thing of the past. Cena told Rollins his confidence makes him a fool. He said if he wants to be a man he should act like one and listen closely. Cena named a bunch of other superstars who have tried to take him down but couldn’t, including Orlando Jordan, Triple H and The Rock. He said it’s because he has the heart and guts to never give up. The promo closed with the two staring out at each other.
The Usos defeated Tyson Kidd and Cesaro via pinfall. Miz and Mizdow were on commentary during the match. The Miz got up and flirted with Naomi ringside a bit during the match. At one point, Miz got a call from his agent and seemed upset, so he and Mizdow headed backstage. Jimmy hit a Superkick in the match and then Jey tagged in to hit the Superfly Splash for the pinfall win.
Backstage Miz confronted Naomi saying that people in the music industry won't want to spend time and money on someone with a jealous husband. Naomi said he's not jealous. Miz said that this is the problem and this is not about him.
After a break, Naomi confronted her husband along with his tag partner. She got upset and stormed off. Jey told Jimmy it seems The Miz has played them all.
Nikki Bella defeated Alicia Fox via pinfall in a non-title match. AJ Lee was on commentary during the match and was asked “so how’s life?” by one of the commentators. In the match, Nikki was able to hit a forearm on Alicia then picked her up and hit Rack Attack for the win. Post-match, she hit another Rack Attack on Alicia and stared out to taunt AJ who stood up and stared back.
Jack Swagger defeated Titus O’Neil via submission. Swagger reversed a powerslam attempt and put on the Patriot Lock hold. Titus struggled for about ten seconds trying to get towards the ropes and then gave in to tap out.
Big E defeated Goldust via pinfall. A New Day danced to the ring and then Goldust/Stardust arrived out for their normally odd entrance. In the match, Kofi and Xavier Woods helped to inspire Big E to a comeback. He hit the Big Ending for the win.
Ryback, Dolph Ziggler & Erick Rowan defeated Luke Harper, Big Show and Kane via pinfall. The close saw everyone get involved. Rowan attacked Kane but then Big Show speared Rowan. Ultimately, Ryback got the win after hitting a Meathook Clothesline and then Shellshocked on Harper. Post-match, the ladders and chairs around the ring were used on the heels. Ziggler set up a ladder to climb up 3/4 the way and then dove to the outside onto Show, Kane and Harper. SmackDown went off the air to lead into Sunday's TLC PPV.
