The WWE's March 1 SmackDown show was taped on Tuesday night in Oklahoma City and we have everything you need to know here, so look away if you don't want to know what happened.

World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio took to the ring for the opening match of the evening against Damien Sandow and later shared a long stare with Jack Swagger.

The tag team duo of Daniel Bryan and Kane (Team Hell No) also took part in a match tonight against Darren Young and Titus O’Neil with a ridiculous stipulation that helped stack the deck for the tag team champs.

Other notables such as Big Show, Randy Orton and The Miz all took to the ring as well.

Let's take a look at the big matches that happened during Tuesday's taping, ProWrestling.com.


Alberto Del Rio vs. Damien Sandow

This match started off the evening for SmackDown with Sandow cutting a heel promo before exchanging words with Del Rio.

After a hard-fought match, the World Heavyweight champ finished Sandow off with a Cross Armbreaker to take the victory.


The Miz vs. Antonio Cesaro: WWE United States Title Match

The Miz had a golden opportunity to take home a title against Cesaro in a 2-out-of-3 Falls match.

After Cesaro notched the first pinfall with a Neutralizer, Miz scored the second fall to even it up at one apiece. Cesaro and Miz would go on to have an exchange of counters, but Cesaro ended up scoring the final pin to retain his belt.


Fandango Promo and Matt Striker Exchange

Fandango got his own promo early on during the taping which should have led to his debut on SmackDown, but since Matt Striker couldn't pronounce his name correctly backstage, Fandango says he will debut when Striker can get it right and that didn't happen during this show.


Jim Ross Interview with Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger

Ross interviewed Colter and Swagger during the show, and Swagger did his best to bash the Oklahoma Sooners, which wasn't something the crowd was too pleased with.

Colter would go on to diss Del Rio's english-speaking abilities and ended up getting into an argument with Ross. After Swagger smacked JR's hat off, Del Rio came out to the ring to save the legendary broadcaster.

Del Rio would then go on to cut a promo against Swagger and the two took part in yet another stare-down that ended without incident.


Team Hell No vs. Darren Young and Titus O’Neill

Earlier in the show, Bryan and Kane got into an argument backstage, and that was a sign of things to come.

In their match with Young and O'Neill, the deck was stacked against Bryan and Kane. The Big Red Machine had to fight blindfolded while Bryan had his arm tied behind his back.

Kane and Bryan would end up getting into another argument during the match and that led to O'Neill rolling up Bryan for the victory. It didn't end there, however, as Bryan would go on to smack Kane across the face when it was all said and done.


Sin Cara defeats Heath Slater

Not exactly one of the bigger matches of the evening, Cara scored the victory by way of a roll-up, via PWTorch.com.


Randy Orton vs. Big Show

Earlier in the evening, we find out that a match between Big Show and Orton is scheduled, but Sheamus promises to get Orton's back during the showdown.

The Shield would make its presence known early on by coming out and surrounding the ring, waiting for Sheamus. After beating down both Orton and Sheamus, Roman Reigns got knocked out by Big Show, and that forced Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to run for their respective lives.

The Big Show then chokeslammed Orton, but Sheamus came in and landed a Brogue Kick to knock Big Show out of the ring. Unfortunately, the match ended in a disappointing no contest.
