The WWE pre-taped their "WWE Smackdown" television show on Feb. 4 and the main event saw WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton battle former world champion Christian in a warm up match for the "Elimination Chamber" pay-per-view. Here is a look at the WWE spoilers for this week's episode of "WWE Smackdown."

There was one dark match before the TV taping started and that saw NXT star Alexander Rusev defeat Tyson Kidd. Rusev will make his official on-air television debut on "WWE Monday Night Raw" next week.

The show opened with Daniel Bryan coming out and facing off with his former Hell No tag team partner, and now corporate stooge, Kane. Kane choke slammed Daniel Bryan on "WWE Monday Night Raw" after failing to cost him his match with Randy Orton. Kane ended up booking Bryan in a match with Antonio Cesaro.

Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns of The Shield tagged up to face Kofi Kingston and Dolph Ziggler in the first match. Reigns speared Ziggler and then tagged in Ambrose to let his partner pin Ziggler after that.

Sheamus beat Ryback next, which means he has beaten both members of Ryb-Axel in back to back shows.

AJ Lee beat Nikki Bella by submission in the next match.
