Report by: Mike Tedesco of Wrestleview.com
“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
The Smackdown video plays, and it’s announced that Cody Rhodes and Goldust will defend their WWE Tag Team Championships against Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns of The Shield tonight.
Renee Young interviews the WWE Champion, Randy Orton
Renee Young is in the ring, and she introduces the WWE Champion, Randy Orton, to the ring. Orton comes out to a chorus of boos from the fans. Young says there was quite a bit of controversy from this past Sunday at Survivor Series when the Big Show knocked him out. The only thing left for the Big Show to do was put him in the ring and cover him for the pin. When Big Show put him in the ring, the Authority came out. Some say it was a distraction, and some say it was just to observe. Regardless, it gave Orton time to recover, RKO, and then punt the Big Show for the win. Orton says he begs to differ with Renee on a number of things. He wasn’t knocked out. He’s got an iron jaw. Orton says he was playing possum, which is strategy. He didn’t need an appearance from the Authority to get a victory over Big Show. If anything, that appearance by the Authority tainted his inevitable victory.
Renee goes on to say that there was another controversy surrounding him and the Authority when John Cena showed up. A clip is then shown of Cena challenging Orton to a match with both the WWE Championship and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line. Renee says the Authority accepted the challenge. It’ll be a Champion vs. Champion match in a TLC match. Renee asks how that made him feel. Did he feel betrayed or abandoned? Did he feel challenged or threatened? Orton just stands there and says nothing. Renee holds the microphone closer to his face, but he instead turns and leaves the ring.
Backstage, a huge spread of all the traditional Thanksgiving trimmings are shown on a large table. There is, of course, a turkey, a pumpkin pie, and a ham, among other things. Vickie Guerrero is leading the party. She excuses herself. The Gobbledy Gooker is in the background along with a bunch of the usual WWE under- to mid-card talents, including Damien Sandow, Tyson Kidd, and Zack Ryder. Vickie welcomes them to her “Thanksgiving Leftover Party.” She hopes everyone is having a good time. However, unlike previous WWE parties, this is not going to breakdown into mayhem. They are going to have competition, though. They are going to have a food-eating contest. That announcement is met with cheers. Titus O’Neil will face off against The Great Khali in this contest. Vickie then calls for the competition to begin. Khali and O’Neil begin to stuff their faces to the cheers of their fellow sports entertainers.
Mark Henry makes his way to the ring with Big E Langston. He’ll be in action, next.
Mark Henry w/ Big E Langston vs. Curtis Axel w/ Ryback

Langston turns and avalanches Ryback down as he tries to attack him from behind. Axel tries to punch Henry, but Henry blocks it with one hand.

Back to the contest, Khali passes out into a cream pie. Darren Young then declares O’Neil as the winner of the contest. Vickie says his reward is that he’ll fight in the ring tonight.

Punk says he hasn’t heard from Bryan since the Wyatts carted him off. Punk says he has severely bruised ribs due to Roman Reigns’ spear. Punk says he has no idea why The Shield attacked him in the first place. Maybe they don’t like him, or maybe they were acting out orders from somebody with “Authority.” Punk doesn’t know, but he’ll get to the bottom of it. When he does, it will be The Shield who needs protection.
Cody Rhodes and Goldust will defend the WWE Tag Team Championships against Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns later tonight.
Bray Wyatt is somewhere backstage illuminated only by a single lantern. Erick Rowan and Luke Harper flank him from behind. Wyatt says he never sleeps when his visions come to him. They show them these mannequins posing as people. They’re living in a world where they’re intoxicated with their own vanity. Wyatt says we all see symmetry in beauty, and he has felt the sharp teeth of society. Wyatt knows what it feels like to be thrown in some groveling pit. They all point down and laugh, but look at him now. He grows stronger by the day, and he says he has his wings back. Wyatt says nobody knows you better than he does. Daniel Bryan will be safe with them. He will enter the lion’s den as a man, but he will emerge a monster.
Titus O’Neil is in the ring slumped over in the corner. He is not looking too good after participating in that food-eating contest.
