WWE Smackdown Results
The show starts off with Alberto Del Rio, Ricardo Rodriguez and David Otunga in the ring, and Alberto says he wants to give Booker T some credit. He says the Brogue Kick is banned at all times, and he wants to let Ricardo tell him how he feels right now. Ricardo thanks all of his fans for their support, then he thanks his mother and begins to weep. Otunga, also wearing a neckbrace, takes the mic and says AJ Lee is acting irresponsibly, and she put him in a match and he may have compressed vertebrae in his neck. Otunga says he will recover, then Alberto shows a clip of Sheamus kicking Christian at last year’s Night of Champions. Alberto calls Christian a victim, then he introduces him via satellite and Christian says he just wants to get this over with. Otunga begins to question him, but Christian cuts him off and he says he hopes Sheamus beats the hell out of Alberto on Sunday.
Christian says he’s a tough guy, and he’s not doing this for Alberto, but for all of the guys in the locker room who are afraid to talk. He says he hasn’t been the same since getting kicked by Sheamus, and the nerve damage finally got bad enough where he needed shoulder surgery. Christian says he respects Sheamus, but he thinks the Brogue Kick should stay banned, then Otunga stops the video before he can finish his thoughts. Alberto says Booker T made the right decision, then Daniel Bryan comes out and says he wants to thank them for bringing this case to light, because he too was a victim. Bryan says Otunga will recover “handsomely”, but people call him a “goat face” and it’s because Sheamus kicked him too much.
Bryan says Booker T granted him a Wrestlemania rematch tonight, and he will correct the embarrassment when Sheamus used an illegal move to beat him. Bryan says he wanted the match because he wanted to prove Sheamus’ win over him was a fluke, then Sheamus comes out and says Bryan lost because he was better than him. Sheamus says he’ll beat him again tonight, and he’ll beat Alberto too and prove that people who don’t learn from history will repeat it. Otunga talks trash while Sheamus gets on the apron, then Sheamus snaps his head on the top rope and throws his neck brace into the crowd before leaving.
