WrestleZone.com reader Taylor Gombos sent along the following report from the WWE SmackDown! tapings on Tuesday night in Bakersfield, California:
I just got back from WWE Smackdown in Bakersfield, Ca.
Rey Mysterio started off the show by telling us that he was happy his name was cleared in the situation with Kane and he also said he was glad he didn’t end up in a casket. As he was talking Alberto Del Rio, (who from what I understand was making his smackdown debut) came out and started talking trash to Rey Mysterio saying things along the lines like he was from a royal family and that he was better then Rey. Rey said if he felt he was better than him maybe they should have a match later on in the night. Alberto accepted and said that Rey was a peasant. Rey then slapped him in the face and hit him with the 619 to end the segment.
Intercontinental Title Match: Kofi Kingston d Dolph Ziggler by DQ
This was a very back and forth math which ended when Vickie Guerrero push Kingston off the top rope, which prompted the ref to call for the bell. After the match Vickie Gurrero distracted Kingston as Ziggler attacked him from behind and then brought him back into the ring and applied his famous sleeper hold.
The camera cuts to the back where we see Luke Gallows, Serena and a guy whose name escapes me right now arguing about CM Punk abandoning them in their 3 on 1 match with Big Show at Summerslam but Serena said that Punk was just testing them. Punk then walks in and said he saw what the Nexus did on Monday night and he is going to do the same. Luke Gallows and Serena had a mixed tag match with The Big Show and Kelly Kelly and Punk said if they lose they are out of the Straight Edge Society.
Luke Gallows and Serena d Kelly Kelly and Big Show via pinfall
This match was by far the most boring match of the night and the live crowd wasn’t really into it that much, although the Big Show tried to get us into it but stomping his feet in anger on the ring apron. It ended when Serena performed a back breaker on Kelly Kelly and pinned her for the win. CM Punk was at the top of the ramp to greet Gallows and Serena as the Straight Edge Society celebrated a victory.
