WWE Smackdown that aired on April 1st 2011 was the final stop at the Road to Wrestlemania 27. It was not much of a show to speak of in the ring, wrestling wise, but it was a great infomercial for Wrestlemania 27, with several video packages and segments with Todd Grisham and Bella Twins at Fan Axxes.
WWE Smackdown 4/1/11 Report:
Kofi Kingston defeated WWE Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett via disqualification when the Corre interfered.
It should be noted that all of these matches, along with the matches on NXT and Superstars, were taped this past Monday after RAW. This match was shortand was decent, although not as good as the match was last week. The Corre rushed in for the disqualification, but out rushes Koslov, Santino, Big Show, and Kane.
Also, it should be noted that at Fan Axess, Vladimir Koslov had a match with Tyler Reks that I'm sure would be a main event on any episode of WWE Superstars, in the country, but Koslov was attacked by the Corre. As a result, Koslov is likely out and likely will be replaced by Kofi Kingston, who actually will get a spot on the show after all. At least that's what it seems to be.
Recap of last week where Cody Rhodes laid a beating on Rey Mysterio. Then Rhodes talks to Matt Striker, promising to punish Mysterio with both his knee brace and his face guard.
The Bella Twins and Todd Grisham are at Fan Axxess. We see Hornswoggle's house and the limo that Vince McMahon got blown up in or so we thought.
