Official Results: WWE SmackDown! (10/22/2010) – Kane Vs. Randy Orton
The following results, courtesy of World Wrestling Entertainment‘s official website, are from the October 22nd edition of WWE Friday Night SmackDown! held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and was taped this past Tuesday evening.
EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada – Just like on Monday’s RAW, SmackDown! prevailed when both brands went to war. But in a shocking end to the main event – in which WWE Champion Randy Orton defeated World Heavyweight Kane to get a win for RAW – The Undertaker emerged through the bottom of the ring and pulled “The Devil’s Favorite Demon” below.
WWE Champion Randy Orton def. World Heavyweight Champion Kane
WWE Champion Randy Orton made a rare trip to SmackDown to take on World Heavyweight Champion Kane. With major matches looming at WWE Bragging Rights for both Superstars, it was WWE’s Apex Predator who prevailed after a distraction from an unseen Undertaker.
Following a brief moment of darkness in the arena, Orton struck with a blistering RKO for the win. After the loss, a rattled Kane searched about for his brother. Then, The Deadman finally revealed his presence by emerging right through the bottom of the ring to grab hold of The Big Red Monster! With Kane grasping at the tattered mat, The Demon of Death Valley pulled his brother below the ring. Is it an ominous sign of things to come in their Buried Alive Match at WWE Bragging Rights?
Kelly Kelly & Natalya def. The self-professed “Co-Divas Champions” Layla & Michelle McCool
In a match featuring Lay-Cool mocking members of the legendary Hart family, Natalya served up some retribution by making self-professed “Co-Divas Champion” Layla submit to the Sharpshooter. At WWE Bragging Rights, Layla will be the one to defend the Divas Championship against Natalya. Who will prevail when the Divas Title is at stake?
Edge def. CM Punk by Disqualification
In a match that Edge called for against CM Punk, mayhem ensued when members of Team RAW interfered. Although the match was ruled an immediate disqualification win for Edge, it was far from over. Chaos reigned as Superstars from both brands tangled with one another. In the end, the blue brand stood tall after The Ultimate Opportunist Speared Punk. Which brand will reign supreme at WWE Bragging Rights?
Alberto Del Rio def. John Morrison
After driving himself to the ring in a Mercedes, Alberto Del Rio went to work against John Morrison, who requested the bout at the start of the night. Despite picking his opponent, The Monday Night Delight failed to win on a Friday, after he was forced to submit to Del Rio’s highly-effective cross armbreaker.
Jack Swagger def. Santino Marella
In a match called for by Jack Swagger, it was mascot mayhem when Santino Marella struck the “Swagger Soaring Eagle” with his deadly “cobra” strike. Next, Hornswoggle capitalized and hit the bird with a splash from atop the ring steps. Finally, The All-American American put an end to the hijinks when he forced Marella to tap out of his painful ankle lock.
Big Show, Rey Mysterio & Kofi Kingston def. The Miz, Sheamus & Ezekiel Jackson
The night kicked off with members of RAW and SmackDown! issuing challenges to each other – as well as a major tone-setting win for the blue brand.
After Big Show downed The Miz with a brutal chokeslam in the ensuing Six-Man Tag Team Match, Rey Mysterio finished off the Team RAW captain with a stunning splash from atop the shoulders of The World’s Largest Athlete. SmackDown is looking to carry the momentum forward to WWE Bragging Rights.
