Smackdown [April 5, 2013]

Kofi Kingston sighting! CM Punk gives Vince and friends the look of disdain at the Wrestlemania Press Conference.

  • Ryback pins Primo & Epico via Shell Shocked on both men.
  • I thought we were past the Ryback squash matches. I dislike this match solely for the lack of respect for Primo and Epico. Those two deserve so much more. It’s a shame they put a lot of unnecessary emphasis on bench press incident instead of focusing on the fact that they are two of the most imposing and dominant superstars on the WWE roster.
  • They show a lot of highlights from Wrestlemania Weekend in New York, as well as different attractions from Wrestlemania Axxess.
  • The show Bruno Sammartino’s Hall of Fame highlight reel.
  • Michael Cole and JBL discuss all of the Hall of Fame inductees and their presenters.
  • Axxess highlights: DDP! 3MB! Fandango dances at Radio City Music Hall. JBL mentions Chuck Liddell.
  • Fandango-Chris Jericho feud highlights.
  • The Shield teaser promo. Dean Ambrose says the “eye of justice” has its eye on everybody.
  • Nice short promo from the Shield. I really hope they win on Sunday.
  • Damien Sandow, Cody Rhodes, and the Bella Twins go out to the ring dressed as Tensai, Brodus Clay and the Funkadactyls. They run them down and one of the Bellas does a semi-racist charicature impression of one of the Funkadactyls. Really?
  • The real Brodus Clay and friends come down and clean to the crowds delight. Then they danced happily ever after in the ring.
  • The Team Brodus Clay six-man tag should be a fun filler match. This was an amusing final push for their feud with Sandow and Rhodes.
  • They show highlights from the Wrestlemania 29 press conference.
  • Nice look from CM Punk as he watches Vince raise the hands of the Rock and John Cena.
  • Undertaker vs. Punk feud highlight reel is shown.
  • Axxess Highlights: NXT! Fans with WWE gear!
  • Donald Trump’s Hall of Fame inductee highlight reel.
  • Axxess Highlights: Historical and present day title belts! Fans!
  • Alberto Del Rio interview at Axxess. He talks about Jack Swagger’s attack and says that the match isn’t about politics; it’s about the World Heavyweight Championship.
  • Great promo from ADR. I love it when wrestlers and champions put championships above themselves and everything else.
  • Jack Swagger with Zeb Colter submits Kofi Kingston to the Patriot Lock/Ankle Lock
  • This is closer than I expected with Colter playing a huge roll prior to the finish. Kofi got a lot of his signature moves in the match, but he eventually got overwhelmed by that thick glass ceiling that the WWE has hovered over his head.
  • This was your typical highlight filled Smackdown episode prior to a Wrestlemania. Don’t forget to read our Wrestlemania Predictions and leave your own in the comments!

    Now we know what the Bella twins really look like. They should have kept their girdles on.
