- As noted earlier, Christian
suffered a concussion during his match against Randy Orton
on last week's Raw. WWE
physician Dr. Chris Amann told WWE.com that he will be undergoing an in-ring test later this week at the Performance Center in Orlando, and if he's able to exert himself in the ring and work without and problems, he will be cleared. Christian was at tonight's SmackDown
taping and appeared on stage during the opening angle on the show, but didn't work a match.
- The dark match after tonight's SmackDown taping saw Daniel Bryan defeat WWE Champion Randy Orton via disqualification after The Shield interfered. The heels started to beat down Bryan when Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler and Rob Van Dam make the save. The faces then hit their finishers on Seth Rollins to end the show.
- The following matches were taped for this week's episode of SmackDown:
* Randy Orton vs. Rob Van Dam is up first.
* Ryback vs. Dolph Ziggler
* Kofi Kingston vs. Curtis Axel (non-title match) is up next
* Naomi vs. Brie Bella
* Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro vs. The Usos
