Episode summary Edit

Zack Ryder vs Fandango Edit

After dancing to the ring with the lovely Summer Rae at his side, Fandango set his sights on Zack Ryder. And while a much more aggressive Long Island Iced-Z than ever before took the fight to his opponent with the Broski Boot, Fandango roared back, finishing off his opponent with the devastating leg drop off the top rope.

When Divas Champion Kaitlyn received another gift from her secret admirer, The Punjabi Playboy attempted to educate her on the ways of love.

Ricardo Rodriguez & Alberto Del Rio vs Jack Swagger & Zeb Colter vs Dolph Ziggler & Big E. Langston Edit

After  winning his friend Alberto Del Rio the right to pick a Ladder Match stipulation for the Triple Threat World Title Match at Extreme Rules, Ricardo Rodriguez battled  Zeb Colter one-on-one on SmackDown — with World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler, AJ Lee and Big E Langston watching from the wings.

But when Jack Swagger attacked Ricardo, Senior Advisor Theodore Long (filling in for the absent General Manager Booker T) restarted the contest as — you guessed it — a tag team match.

The subsequent match pitting Rodriguez & Del Rio against Swagger & Colter also ended prematurely when Ziggler and Big E Langston decided to attack both the Mexican Superstar and the “Real American.” Teddy then made the decision to restart things again, this time as a Triple Threat Tag Team Match. That whirlwind showdown ended when Del Rio made The Showoff tap out to the Cross Armbreaker.


  • Singles Match: Fandango (w/ Summer Rae) defeated Zack Ryder
  • Triple Threat Tag Team Match: Alberto Del Rio & Ricardo Rodriguez defeated Big E. Langston & Dolph Ziggler (w/ AJ Lee) and Jack Swagger & Zeb Colter
