Smackdown opened with Alberto Del Rio, Ricardo and David Otunga coming out to complain about Sheamus hurting Otunga (now in a neck brace) and using the Brogue Kick. Daniel Bryan came out and claimed he only lost at Wrestlemania because of an illegal kick. This all lead to Sheamus hitting the ring and laying out Otunga again as Del Rio escaped. Sheamus challenged Bryan to a bout later.

Alberto Del Rio came to the ring with Riccardo Rodriguez and David Otunga. They replayed the Sheamus/Otunga video from Raw as well as the end of their match.

They showed the clip where Sheamus hit his brogue kick on Chritian at the same time last year. Otunga talked to Christian who’s via satellite. Then Daniel Bryan came to the ring and was mad at Sheamus. Then Sheamus got to the ring. The segment ended up with Sheamus attacking Otunga by removing his neck brace.

The segment went for 15 long minutes and didn’t get anywhere and people didn’t really reacted to it. Bryan got some heat and some “Goat face” chants. Sheamus got a good pop, but that’s pretty much it. Still don’t know why I should buy the PPV on Sunday with that segment, since Sheamus barely interacted with Del Rio. He did more interacting with Bryan since they are wrestling tonight.

Sheamus b Daniel Bryan The match was build on the Titantrom as a Wrestlemania 28 rematch. Just before the match started, they showed their Mania with AJ’s kiss-of-death. Sheamus won with the Cloverleaf. Ok match. Nothing wrong, nothing great.

Right after the match, Cole left the booth. Matthews followed soon after. I don’t think Cole wanted to have to interact with anyone tonight and rightfully so.

Dark main-event

Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio w/Rodriguez

The finish saw Del Rio, who was about to hit Sheamus, who ducked, so Del Rio hit his manager. Sheamus put his Cloverleaf on Del Rio and that was it.
