WWE SmackDown – June 24, 2011 – Hershey, Pennsylvania
IN THE RING
Theodore Long + Christian: Teddy said there was a controversial decision made at Capitol Punishment and he needed Christian to come down to the ring. Christian said he deserves another shot. Teddy showed everyone what happened at the PPV. Teddy said the referee made a bad call but the refs decision is final. Christian asked why the hell he apologized to the WWE Universe when he was the one who was screwed. Christian said he deserves another shot especially because Orton smashed him in the head with the belt after the match. Teddy said he agrees Orton’s actions were wrong but it depends on whether or not Christian earns another title match. Christian didn’t think he needed to prove himself again. Teddy said if he wants another chance he has to win his match tonight against Kane.
Sin Cara defeated Ted DiBiase: Sin won with the head scissors into a face plant.
Cody Rhodes w/Ted DiBiase defeated Daniel Bryan: Cody said he loved chocolate and Hershey was responsible for producing more chocolate than anywhere else in the world which in turn makes everyone in the planet fat and ugly. Cody asked if they saw the irony that a place all about chocolate is full of vanilla bleak plain expressions. Cody said as a service to all of them he brought paper bags. Daniel Bryan came out. Daniel said he hates to interrupt but he was sick of it. Daniel said he may never be on the cover of GQ but even he knows that a cup doesn’t belong on your face. Daniel said Cody seriously needs to learn that looks aren’t everything. Cody said that sounds like something an ugly person would say. Daniel showed a picture of Dusty Rhodes. Daniel said Dusty isn’t the most attractive person on the earth but he was inspiring charismatic and a good guy, all things Cody is not. Daniel said Cody is a bitter, arrogant jerk who realizes that he will never live up to the standards of his father. Cody won the match with Cross Rhodes.
Johnny Curtis: Johnny cut the mustard.
Matt Striker & The Big Show + Mark Henry: Matt asked The Big Show for an update on his condition. Show said he was fine. Matt asked Show about knocking Henry out before Capitol Punishment. Show said Mark Henry was in the wrong place at the wrong time and it could have happened to anyone. Matt said it was unwarranted and he lit a fire under Mark Henry. Mark charged in and knocked show through the set.
