*Spoilers:* WWE Smackdown Taping Results For 8/5

Justin LaBar

This match wasn't the squash I thought it'd be.  In fact, Ryder was in control for the meat of it and even hit some of his spots.  Still, Zeke won with the torture rack.  Shortly after, Triple H showed up and told Ryder that he annoyed him and like he told Punk that there were some things he couldn't get away with.  Then he told the cameras to shut off, so I don't know if this part will make it on at all, but the lights dimmed & flickered, the screen and backdrop and all the cameras were turned off and Triple H asked the crowd if they wanted to see something special, but only if we promised not to say anything (whoops!)  He takes off his coat and tie and unbuttons his shirt halfway.  Then tells Ryder he needs to relieve some stress and hits him with a pedigree.  The crowd popped like mad for the pedigree, even the Ryder marks, and when his music hit.

Christian is preparing for his match when R-Truth walks up to him and says stuff about conspiricies and Little Jimmies.  Christian agrees with the conspiracy, but asks "Who's Little Jimmy?"

Mark Henry then takes on Kazlov.  Kazlov is no longer a gangster I guess.  Short match, Henry wins then does the ankle break with the chair shot again.  This time Sheamus comes out with a steel chair and runs Henry off.

Sheamus is found in the back walking with the steel chair when he's interviewed.  He says that he's sick of Henry taking down big guys like The Big Show, Kane & Kozlov and he won't do it to him.  Taking away their hearts and spirits, but he's Irish and likes to fight and his spirit and heart will always live on.  I guess Sheamus is 100% face now.
