SmackDown results: Big Show & The Miz overcome Sheamus & Kofi in a showdown all about World Title 'Survival'

“Miz TV” with special guest Sheamus

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Five days after two KO Punches allowed Big Show to reign supreme over Sheamus and capture the World Heavyweight Title at Hell in a Cell, the giant joined forces with The Miz to overcome The Celtic Warrior & Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston in a furious main event. Meanwhile, when Alberto Del Rio helped the Barrett Barrage steamroll over Randy Orton, the food flew in a fierce post-match brawl between The Viper and The Mexican Aristocrat.

“Miz TV” with special guest Sheamus
The Miz opened the self-professed “most must-see WWE talk show in history” by mentioning a few of the events that are currently taking WWE by storm: the “AJ scandal,” Brad Maddox going “rogue” and costing Ryback his WWE Title Hell in a Cell Match against CM Punk and — much to his apparent amusement — Sheamus losing the World Heavyweight Championship to Big Show at the same pay-per-view.

The Celtic Warrior, Miz’s guest — who made no excuses for Sunday’s loss to Big Show before hitting White Noise on the giant on Raw — admitted to the instigating Awesome One that he was somewhat humbled by the defeat. But before he could comment on his renewed intensity for their upcoming Survivor Series World Title rematch ( MATCH PREVIEW), Miz interrupted, igniting a war of words over whether Sheamus could beat Big Show and whether Miz could beat Intercontinental Champion, Kofi Kingston. 

Kingston, who after Sunday’s pay-per-view triumph holds three wins over Miz in a row, soon emerged, wondering how many times he would have to kick his outspoken adversary in the head before he “knocked some sense into [him].”

World Heavyweight Champion Big Show then joined the party, attempting to describe the “euphoria” of hitting the KO Punch on The Celtic Warrior at Hell in a Cell. Sheamus responded by asking the giant, new titleholder to describe the euphoria of getting hit with White Noise on Raw before suggesting they do it again on SmackDown. Big Show dismissed the idea of coming to the ring, however, stating that Sheamus would get all he could handle of him at Survivor Series.

As Big Show made his exit, Miz ambushed Kofi from behind, only to get hurled over the top rope by the high-flying Intercontinental Champion.   

Moments later in the back, SmackDown General Manager Booker T informed Big Show that he would be teaming with Miz in the SmackDown main event against Sheamus & Kingston.

Darren Young def. Sin Cara

Five days after he & Rey Mysterio overcame The Prime Time Players at Hell in a Cell, Sin Cara locked horns with Darren Young in an explosive one-on-one contest. In the height of the action, despite the high-octane offense of the gravity-defying Superstar, “Mr. No Days Off” ultimately triumphed, planting his opponent with the gutbuster.

Although the bell rang, the action was far from over, as Rey Mysterio and Titus O’Neil were about to step to the plate.

Rey Mysterio def. Titus O’Neil

Moments after Darren Yong defeated Sin Cara in singes competition, Titus O’Neil picked up the microphone and challenged Rey Mysterio to an impromptu match — in an attempt to sweep both the luchadores in the same night.

The Ultimate Underdog evaded his adversary’s aggressive attack, however, quickly rolling him up for the three-count to put the outspoken Superstar’s aspirations to rest.

As the smoke cleared, Mysterio & Sin Cara celebrated by mocking their foes, doing the millions of dollars dance on the ramp.

Brad Maddox to make his case this Monday on Raw
Following the announcement on WWE Main Event that referee Brad Maddox would be suspended indefinitely and that he would appear before the WWE Board of Directors on Thursday, the SmackDown announce team informed the WWE Universe that Maddox had been granted time to explain his side of the story, this Monday on Raw.

Wade Barrett def. Randy Orton

Prior to the start of Randy Orton’s match with Wade Barrett, Alberto Del Rio — who appeared  ready to join the SmackDown announce team for the pending showdown — suddenly attacked The Viper with the help of Ricardo Rodriguez, leaving his adversary on the ringside floor.

Despite this assault, the match between Orton and Barrett would carry on as scheduled, igniting a brutal firestorm of a contest. But just as The Viper looked to have gained a decisive advantage over his opponent, Del Rio and Rodriguez reemerged, bringing yet another distraction to the table. As Orton proceeded to headbutt The Mexican Aristocrat’s personal ring announcer off the apron — Barrett seized the opportunity, rolling up WWE’s Apex Predator up for the three-count.

But while Del Rio was bragging in the back on his persistent belief that he was WWE’s “new Apex Predator,” Orton caught up with him, igniting a fierce backstage brawl that stretched all the way to catering — as the two fierce Superstars destroyed everything in sight. In the midst of the chaos, collateral damage inevitably took shape, as Rodriguez found himself covered with food and Matt Striker got “just desserts.” ( WATCH)

The Great Khali def. David Otunga

Much to David Otunga’s discontent, SmackDown General Manager Booker T ordered the coffee-drinking Superstar to face the returning Great Khali one-on-one. And while the Harvard-educated grappler would ultimately fall to the giant’s Punjabi Chop, it was Natalya who seemed to be taken off her feet. After the match, the impressed third-generation Diva approached Khali for a hands-on conversation. ( WATCH)

World Heavyweight Champion Big Show & The Miz def. Sheamus & Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston

By order of SmackDown GM Booker T, The Celtic Warrior & Kofi Kingston took on the former tag team championship combination of The World’s Largest Athlete and The Miz.

In the crucial final moments of the match — though Sheamus managed to knock an interfering Big Show out of the ring, the giant recovered as the referee was getting The Celtic Warrior back to his corner. As Kofi was battling Miz on the ropes, Show smashed Kingston with the devastating force of the KO Punch, leaving the Intercontinental Champion easy pickings for Miz to get the three-count.

In the aftermath, an enraged Sheamus hit Miz with the Brogue Kick after the bell as Big Show walked away.
