WWE Smackdown Results (7/12) – Christian vs Bryan, AJ/Kaitlyn Contract Signing, Sheamus vs Orton

Bill Pritchard

Teddy Long is backstage talking to someone on the phone when Dolph Ziggler walks in, and he says he has good news for him. Teddy says Dolph has the night off, and Dolph says he wants to be competing, but Teddy says he can’t have that. He says Alberto Del Rio is facing Sin Cara tonight and he won’t let Dolph interfere because he doesn’t want anyone messing with the show. Teddy says he saw what happened to Vickie Guerrero on Monday, but Dolph says he just thinks Teddy is trying to be Alberto’s friend. He says he’ll get Teddy a sombrero and it’s not going to matter on Sunday, because he’ll be World Heavyweight Champion, and that’s in English.

Seth Rollins (w/ Roman Reigns) vs Jey Uso (w/ Jimmy Uso)

Rollins puts Jimmy in a wristlock but Jey fights out, then Rollins stomps him and whips him into the ropes but Jey hits him with a forearm. Jey hits him in the corner and slams his head on the mat, then he heads up top but Rollins sweeps his legs and gets a near fall. Rollins splashes him in the corner and gets another near fall, then he stomps Jey’s back and puts him in a chinlock, but Jey fights out so Rollins slams his head into the turnbuckles. Rollins sends him in to two more corners but Jey psyches himself up and fires back with a clothesline and a corner splash. Jey backs up and hits a corner back splash, and Reigns tries to distract Jey but Jimmy runs over and takes him out. Jey hits a Samoan drop for two, then Reigns runs over and takes out Jimmy with a diving clothesline. Jey gets distracted by this and Rollins crotches him on the ropes, then he runs over and stomps the back of his head and makes the cover.

Winner – Seth Rollins

Chris Jericho vs Curtis Axel (w/ Paul Heyman)

Axel kicks Jericho and pounds on him in the corner, then he kicks him a few times and taunts him while he chokes him. He whips Jericho across the ring but Jericho elbows him and drops him with a clothesline, then he punches him in the back a few times but Axel kicks him in the ribs. Axel sends him into the corner and whips him across the ring, but Jericho springboards off the turnbuckles and Axel slams into the ringpost. Jericho goes for a Codebreaker but Axel counters, then he slams Jericho down and gets a near fall as we cut to a break. We get back to see Axel hit a middle rope forearm smash, then he taunts Jericho and rubs his face on the ropes but Jericho comes back with a bridge suplex for two. Jericho goes for the Walls of Jericho but Axel kicks him away, then he goes for another pin attempt before chopping him in the corner. (Cont'd…)
