In preparation for WWE Friday Night SmackDown, Bleacher Report is here with spoilers for tonight's show.  SmackDown has been bringing quality wrestling entertainment to the fans as of late; will tonight's episode continue the trend?

  • Lilian Garcia comes out and the fans are glad to have her back, and she addresses the fans. Booker T then comes out, but is attacked from behind by Cody Rhodes.  Rhodes then interrupts Lilian and says that he'll be the announcer tonight. 
  • Wade Barrett defeats Ezekiel Jackson after hitting Wasteland.
  • Beth Phoenix and Natalya defeat AJ and Kaitlyn, with Natalya forcing AJ to submit.  After the match, Kaitlyn joined the "Divas of Doom."  Or wait, is it "Pin-up Strong" now?  Update: This segment was edited out of the show in its entirety.  Check this article for details.
  • Daniel Bryan is interviewed by Josh Matthews, but this turns into an argument between Daniel Bryan and Michael Cole.  This led to Bryan running down to ringside to attack Michael Cole, but he was caught by Cody Rhodes and beaten down.
