We've got your "Friday Night Smackdown" taping results/spoilers for this Friday, March 29. The show taped Tuesday night in Hershey, PA and there was another match added to WWE's "WrestleMania 29" card. Believe it or not, there now are only two more WWE shows (one "Raw" and one "Smackdown") after this Friday. The build up continued last night, with The Rock playing a big part in the show as well as Ryback and Mark Henry facing off in a weight lifting competition.

The show opened up with The Rock coming out and talking about John Cena and their "WrestleMania 29" match. None other than John Laurinaitis made the mistake of interrupting The Rock. Where has Laurinaitis been? Laurinaitis said Cena is the guy who got him fired, so he wants to be in The Rock's corner at WrestleMania. The Rock offers up a handshake first and then gives Laurinaitis a spine buster followed by The People's Elbow.
In the first match of the night Chris Jericho defeated Wade Barrett. Jericho spoke after the match, talking about Fandango, whose lighted silhouette dropped down. Fandango starts to walk down to the ring, but instead stops and turns around after Jericho makes fun of his name.
Ryback and Mark Henry come out for their weight lifting competition. Teddy Long and Booker T join them in the ring. Henry and Ryback end up getting the same score, but Henry reportedly drops the bar on Ryback's neck causing Ryback to roll around choking.
Dolph Ziggler, Big E Langston, and AJ face Kane, Daniel Bryan, and Kaitlyn in a six person mixed tag team match. Kaitlyn gets the pin on AJ for the win. Will we be seeing AJ versus Kaitly at "WrestleMania 29?"
In what was reported as a terrible match, Jack Swagger and The Great Khali both get counted out. Isn't every match with The Great Khali terrible? Swagger continues his bad guy routine and puts poor Hornswoggle in the ankle lock. Ricardo Rodriguez comes out and dares Swagger to come get him. While this is happening, Alberto Del Rio sneaks in and puts Zeb Colter in the cross armbreaker. I'm sorry, but this feud seems forced. I just don't think Jack Swagger should be in what should be a main event caliber match at WrestleMania.
The Sheild cut a promo, as do Sheamus, Randy Orton, and Big Show in a backstage interview. In the main event, Sheamus, Orton, and Big Show face off against Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, and Antonio Cesaro. After a victory, Sheamus, Orton, and Big Show chased The Shield into the crowd. The show ends with Sheamus, Orton, and Big Show posing at the top of the stairs.
