Backstage WWE SD! Taping News: Dolph Crowned As New World Champion, One Return

  • Share

In an item that was left out of our SmackDown spoiler report, Cody Rhodes returned from his storyline reconstructive face surgery wearing a Mankind-like mask and called out Rey Mysterio. They teased a big announcement for next week.

Dolph Ziggler was coronated as the new World Heavyweight Champion at last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings, airing this Friday night on SyFy. Teddy Long then returned and ordered Dolph to defend the title immediately against Edge. The match saw Edge defeat Ziggler and he was announced as the “new” World Heavyweight Champion. Long then fired Dolph Ziggler, which apparently leads to an open spot in Sunday’s Elimination Chamber match for the SmackDown brand.

    There are so many things wrong with this that I will have to violently react to it on wrestleheat radio this friday at 8:00p.m. eastern. I’m thoroughly disgusted with the WWE creative team. Good God.

    I think it is going to be good ,because honestly I think it was Vickie & Dolph who injured Teddy Long and it was not Edge because what would he gain from that when The Corre attacked him after Teddy got attacked. Even though it’s part of a storyline, I think Teddy does the right thing and fires Dolph. I do wish however Teddy or the WWE would fire Vickie.
