The Smackdown episode opened with Miz TV, which should be interesting since he is now a face. His guest on the show is John Cena. Miz asked about his knee and AJ Lee. Vicky Guerrero came out and her and Cena exchanged words before the segment ended.
In the first match, Ryback fought one-half of The Prime Time Players, Darren Young. These two men were at one time both a member of Nexus together. Ryback won in about two minutes. After the match, he also took out Titus O'Neil.
The feud between U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro and R-Truth continued and Truth actually picked up a pinfall victory in a non-title match. Next up, Alberto Del Rio beat Sin Cara in about eight minutes.
Next up Big Show took on Team Hell No in a handicap match. Earlier on the show, Booker T announced that Show would defend his title against Sheamus in a chair's match at the TLC PPV. Big Show won after Daniel Bryan tagged himself in and Kane refused to help him after that. Following the match, Team Hell No cleared Big Show from the ring.
Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston defeated Damien Sandow in about eight minutes in a good match. Rumor has it that Sandow is up for a big push, but he has been losing lots of matches lately.
Dolph Ziggler took on Randy Orton in the main event. In a big upset, Ziggler pinned Orton with a roll up after Orton missed the RKO. After the match, Alberto Del Rio unsuccessfully tried to attack Orton but then John Cena attacked Ziggler and locked in the STF as the show went off the air.
