WWE Smackdown Results
Mean Gene Okerlund is in the ring and welcomes everyone to Smackdown – Blast From The Past, then introduces Sheamus as one of his new favorite stars. Gene gives him the mic and Sheamus says it's a honor to be in the ring with him, and there is also a code of honor when you are the champion. He says there is no excuse for what he did last week and he wants to publicly apologize to referee Chad Patton and all of the people there. Sheamus says he hopes he accepts his apology because he learns the hard way, then John Laurinaitis cuts him off and says he wants to show everyone what happened again. John asks Sheamus who he thinks he is, because John is the general manager around here and how dare Sheamus put his hands on a referee.
John tells him to apologize, and Sheamus says he already did, but John makes him repeat because he didn't hear it and says he doesn't think it is funny. Sheamus apologizes again to Patton, the other referees and the world, but John says it's not good enough and he is putting Sheamus on probation. He says if Sheamus touches another referee he will fire him and fire him $500,000, and he also wishes him good luck in his match tonight. John says he knows he didn't tell him yet, but Sheamus will face Daniel Bryan and Alberto Del Rio, and his partner will be Mean Gene.
Mark Henry vs Randy Orton
Orton punches Henry in the corner until the ref backs him off, then Henry headbutts him and whips him into the corner. Orton ducks a clothesline and punches him in the corner, but Henry comes back with a powerslam as we go to a break. When we get back, Henry levels Orton with a clothesline, then he keeps Orton down with a bodyslam and a running splash for a two count. Henry punches him in the corner and splashes Orton twice for another near fall, but Orton rolls away from a third. Orton bounces off the ropes and tries to clothesline Henry, then he kicks his knee and drops him with a DDT for another near fall. Henry rolls to the apron so Orton goes for a hanging DDT, but Henry counters and goes for a World's Strongest Slam. (Cont'd…)
