1. John Morrison defeated Jack Swagger in a non-title match. Morrison won via Starship Pain in a great TV match. 
 
2. Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre defeated Matt Hardy and R-Truth. The heels won via ref stoppage when McIntyre curb stomped Hardy on the ring steps.
 
Edge and Chris Jericho delivered mic work inside a steel cage. Edge ended up spearing Jericho’s NXT protege Wade Barrett. Good segment that should come off well on television.
 
3. JTG defeated Mike Knox in 2:00. Baffling. Shad Gaspard beat the crap out of JTG with a belt. The live crowd didn’t care.
 
4. Layla and Michelle McCool (w/Vickie Guerrero) defeated Mickie James and Beth Phoenix. Layla pinned Mickie. The match was a mess. In a segment that will be edited, Layla couldn’t find the ironing board under the ring. She eventually found it and they beat down Bet. The crowd chanted "You can’t find it" for the most awkward three minutes of the night. Layla and Michelle then stole Shannon Moore’s gimmick and wrote on Beth with lipstick. The match and segment bombed live.

5. C.M. Punk and Luke Gallows (w/Serena) defeated Rey Mysterio and Kane. The heels won via blocked roll-up. Kane chased away Gallows. Punk jumped Rey, who teased shaving Punk. Serena blocked Rey from following through with the shaving and they both powdered out of the ring to conclude the Smackdown taping.
 
Dark Match
 
1. Jack Swagger defeated Rey Mysterio and Chris Jericho in a Triple Threat match. Mysterio hit a 619 on Jericho and went for the cover, but Swagger pulled him off and pinned Jericho himself. Mysterio got his heat back after the bell.
