WWE Smackdown Results (3/30) – Wrestlemania Preview, Ryder/McIntyre, Jericho/Kofi

Bill Pritchard

We go back to the arena and Big Show comes to the ring to talk about being lucky enough to have a really good career. He says he won the World Heavyweight Championship in his first match, but he never had a Wrestlemania moment as Cody Rhodes likes to point out. Show says all of the things Cody has said to him may hold some weight, but Cody isn't facing history on Sunday. He says he is facing the world's largest athlete, and Show feels it in his heart so he is going to chokeslam Cody. Show says Cody's career won't be made because he is going to break him, and he will get his Wrestlemania moment.

King and Cole talk about more stuff to do at Axxess, then Cole tries to sing John Cena's theme before King tells him to shut up and they put over the Bryan/Sheamus feud. After clips of that, they talk about the Hall of Fame ceremony, then we get clips of Superstars and Hall of Famers making picks for the HHH/Undertaker match.

Kofi Kingston vs Chris Jericho

Jericho shoves Kofi then locks up with him and hits a shoulder block, and follows it by running the ropes but Kofi leapfrogs him and hits a flying elbow. Kofi knocks him on the floor and dives out on him, then rolls Jericho back inside and goes for a springboard. Jericho jumps up and shakes the ropes, causing Kofi to fall down as we go to a commercial break. When we return, Jericho slingshots Kofi into the bottom rope, and he taunts the fans while Kofi rolls to the floor. Jericho follows him outside and tears part of the barricade padding off and slams Kofi's head into it before rolling him in the ring and applying a headlock. (Cont'd…)
