WWE Smackdown Results (2/22) – Randy Orton vs Jack Swagger, Wade Barrett vs Alberto Del Rio

Bill Pritchard

Zeb Coulter is giving Jack Swagger a pep talk when Wade Barrett approaches them, and Wade says he is glad that someone like him is here. Zeb stops him and says they aren’t the same, and Wade is part of the problem because he’s not an American. He says Wade is stealing a job just like Alberto Del Rio is, and he thinks both of them should take each other out tonight and do him a favor. Wade tries to reason with him and say he’s on their side, but Swagger stops him and says ‘we the people’ before heading to the ring.

Randy Orton vs Jack Swagger (w/ Zeb Coulter)  

Swagger tries to steal it with an early rollup, then Orton uppercuts him and clotheslines him before hitting a side suplex. Orton chokes him in the corner but Swagger rams Orton with his shoulder, then he whips Orton across the ring but Orton counters with a clothesline. Orton applies a headlock but Swagger counters with a side suplex for a near fall, then he elbows Orton several times before dropping him after a running shoulder block. Swagger hits another shoulder block but Orton tries to roll him up, then Orton hits a dropkick and a kneedrop before Swagger heads outside.

Swagger pulls him to the apron and attacks his knee, then he slams Orton’s leg into the ringpost and tries to apply the Patriot Lock in the ring. Orton kicks him back and sends him outside, then Orton punches him several times before Swagger tries to run. Orton catches him and drops him with a suplex, then we get back from a break to see the two slugging it out in the ring. Swagger sends him into the ropes but Orton throws him on the apron, then he sets up a hanging DDT but Swagger counters and shoves him back.  (Cont'd…)
