WWE Smackdown Results (7/26) – AJ Lee’s “State of Mind”, Christian’s Streak Continues, Cody Steals Sandow’s Briefcase

Bill Pritchard

Damien Sandow is shown looking for Cody Rhodes, and he asks Sin Cara and makes fun of him before he asks some of the crew. He next runs into Booker T and Mark Henry, and Henry calls Cody a thief, but Booker says they haven't seen him. Sandow says he needs to do something because he's the GM, but Booker says he shouldn't have said that. Henry tells him to let it go, and Sandow doesn't really get it but leaves in pursuit of his briefcase. He enters Vickie Guerrero's office and screams about what's going on, and she tells him to give it time because she contacted the authorities. Sandow says he won't give it time because he doesn't have any, then he screams as he leaves the office and slams the door.

Christian vs Jack Swagger (w/ Zeb Colter)

Swagger starts with a waistlock takedown, then he shoves Christian in the corner and taunts him but Christian comes back with some mounted punches and goes for a rollup. Swagger blocks it so Christian shoves him back, then Swagger hits a shoulder tackle but Christian knocks him outside and hits a slingshot crossbody. Christian rolls him inside and heads up top, but Swagger jumps up and takes him down with a belly-to-belly suplex from the turnbuckles. We get back from a break to see Christian avoid a splash, then he clotheslines Swagger and takes him down with a diving forearm.

Christian heads up top but Swagger avoids a crossbody, then he goes for a gutwrench powerbomb but Christian counters. He sets up a Killswitch but Swagger blocks it, so Christian hits an inverted DDT for two before setting up a spear, but Zeb gets in the way. Swagger runs at him but Christian elbows him, then he goes for the Killswitch but Swagger counters with a belly-to-belly throw for a two count. Swagger goes for a Swagger Bomb but Christian gets his knees up, then he goes for a sunset flip but Swagger kicks out and goes for the Patriot Lock. Christian blocks it and kicks him into the corner, then Swagger goes after him but Christian moves, and Swagger hits the ringpost before Christian hits the Killswitch for the win.
