Results from the Smackdown tapings earlier today in Saitama:

Charlie Haas b Spike Dudley with a powerslam
Bashams NC Luther Reigns & Mark Jindrak in a tag title match when Undertaker came out and attacked Reigns & Jindrak (9:34)
Funaki b Chavo Guerrero (7:55) with a DDT. Funaki was super over of course.
John Cena b Orlando Jordan in the WWE title tournament with an FU in 5:01
Torrie Wilson b Hiroko in a kimono bra and panties match
JBL and Big Show did a confrontation promo building up the PPV that everyone knows to skip
Big Show then called out Akebono. He claimed Akebono is the Japanese Big Show but he’s the Big Show all over the world. They went face-to-face but shook hands. Apparently there was a Japanese angle set up out of this as Sadaharu Tanigawa claimed Akebono had breached his contract by being part of a WWE television show, but it’s just an angle
Kurt Angle b Rey Mysterio in 17:13 with an ankle lock. Said to be a great match
Overall this show was said to have been better received than Raw.
