WWE taped the "first Smackdown" of 2013 tonight in Richmond, VA.

*Natalya beat Alicia Fox in what I think was a dark match but may have been a Superstars match.


*They opened with Randy Orton returning and cutting a promo about wanting to win the Royal Rumble. This led to Sheamus coming out and pointing out he won last year and will again. Big Show and Antonio Cesaro got involved to set up a tag match main event.

*The Miz beat Heath Slater.

*Natalya & Hornswoggle & Great Khali beat Primo & Epico & Rosa Rosa Mendes.

*New WWE Intercontinental champion Wade Barrett beat Kofi Kingston.

*Tamina beat Layla.

*Randy Orton and Sheamus beat Big Show and Antonio Cesaro. Orton and Sheamus faced off to close the taping.
