*Spoiler:* Detailed Fan Report From The Smackdown Tapings

Nick Paglino

Thanks to Kevin Cox for sending this in:

The show opens minus the normal pyro and we go directly to DX without Hornswoggle (who shot tshirts via cannon before the show). DX is in the ring and Rey Mysterio joins them to tell Shawn Michaels that he doesn’t respect him. Shawn says he doesn’t think Mysterio can beat the Undertaker at Royal Rumble. CM Punk and his cronies come out. Triple H proceeds to call the bald headed girl numerous names including Amy Winehouse and Brittney Spears.  He also tells Punk that he is glad to know that he is straight. Teddy Long comes out and makes the matches of Rey vs HBK and CM Punk vs HHH which is going to happen next.

HHH vs CM Punk: Decent match ends with Luke Gallows hitting HHH and them ganging up on HBK who apparently was busy in the back as it seems it took him awhile and multiple HBK chants to get him out there.

John Morrison comes out cuts a promo on how McIntyre disrespects the IC title which leads us to our next match No DQ for the IC title. The two fight around using the stairs and kendo sticks. They fight into the crowd which was uneventful as The US Bank arena has next to no room and nowhere to go once you enter the floor area.  Announcers table was used briefly and McIntyre wins the match. Decent match, but I expected more though but I probably should have known better with the Royal Rumble being Sunday.
