WWE taped tonight’s “SmackDown” on Oct. 30 from the the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Fayetteville, N.C.. The show saw Former Tag Team Champions the Miz and Big Show beat Sheamus and Kofi Kingston in a tag team main event, and Wade Barrett defeated Randy Orton after losing to the Viper on “RAW,” reports NoDQ.
The show starts with a segment of MizTV, with the Awesome One interviewing his recent rival and current Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston, along with new World Heavyweight Champion Big Show. Sheamus came out to demand a rematch and the tag team main event was made with a reformed ShowMiz facing Kingston and Sheamus.
