*Spoiler:* More Off-Air SD! Notes; Dark Match, Booker T

Nick Paglino

WWE SmackdownThanks to Zach Helms for sending this in:

Crowd was extremely hot for Orton vs. Rhodes to open the show. Great start for the show but the crowd was kind of dead afterwards.

Only 2 merchandise stands. Interesting to note there was no Zack Ryder merchandise at all. Lots of Cena, Rock, and Punk merchandise.

Dark match after the show was Mark Henry and Christian vs. Big Show and Sheamus with Booker T as the special referee. Show and Henry fought to the back for a double count out. The crowd hated that. Christian got on the microphone and ran down Grenville some more. Sheamus attacked him from behind and the match was restarted as a singles bout. Sheamus picked up the win with a Brogue kick.

After the match, Booker T did a spinarooni (Sheamus attempted one too) to send the crowd home happy. They both shook hands with fans and signed autographs around ringside before leaving.

Raw will be coming back to Greenville on June 4th.

BIGGEST POPS:
1. Randy Orton
2. Sheamus
3. Big Show

MOST HEAT:
1. Michael Cole
2. Cody Rhodes
3. Christian

Also, Daniel Bryan did tease cashing in his MITB briefcase after his match with Henry. Crowd popped for that until he ate a World's Strongest Slam.
