Lilian Garcia announces that the main event will pit John Cena and Team Hell No vs. The Shield, in what is likely a dark match.
* Out comes Randy Orton, who has his ribs taped up selling the Big Show's attack on RAW. Sheamus was out next, followed by The Big Show. Orton starts the match with some punches, before Big Show hit a side walk slam. Show works on Orton's ribs. Small "RVD" chants start through the crowd, pretty amusing. Show fails to splash Orton off the top rope. Orton tags Sheamus in, who begins to unload his offense until Show countered with a spear. Show went after Orton, who hit an RKO out of nowhere! Sheamus followed up with a Brogue kick on Show, which knocked him out of the ring. Show then simply walked to the back and got counted out.
They are preparing Fandango's entrance.
Fandango comes out and half the crowd is singing his theme song, while the other half doesn't appear to know what's going on. Dolph Ziggler comes out, and the crowd is confused because he's supposed to be facing Jericho. The lights go out and Jericho comes out, Fandango is just at ringside to watch the match.
* Dolph Ziggler vs. Chris Jericho. Great back and forth match with many near falls. Ziggler wins with a roll up after Fandango distracted the referee and Big E hit Jericho with an elbow. After the match, Jericho tried to attack Ziggler and he hit a clothesline and an enziguri on Big E. Fandango distracted Jericho, allowing Ziggler to hit a Zig Zag, followed by Big E hitting his finisher. Ziggler and his stable left, and Fandango posed and then hit a leg drop from the top rope on Jericho. The crowd hummed Fandango's song the whole time. That ends Smackdown.
John Cena came out and the place exploded, with more cheers than jeers. Jericho is helped to the back by an official, and Cena tried helping him from the ring. The six man tag match is next.
* John Cena and Team Hell No defeated The Shield via disqualification after Seth Rollins hit Cena with a chair. After the match, the faces hit The Shield with their finishers. Cena grabs the mic and talks about Boston and then starts singing Fandango's theme with the crowd. Fandango comes out, Cena says his name wrong and Fandango got mad. Cena threw Fandango into Kane, who hit him with a chokeslam, followed by an AA from Cena. Daniel Bryan then hit Fandango with a chokeslam, which surprised many. The crowd was more into this segment than the entire night. Awesome way to end the show.
