-The WWE Smackdown taping will be held tonight in Columbia, S.C. at Colonial Life Arena. The advertised TV main event is Sheamus vs. Damien Sandow in a Dublin Street Fight, plus new World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio will hold a Fiesta (that will inevitably be broken up by Dolph Ziggler). At this point, don't you just assume that whatever notable match they have on Smackdown will somehow lead to a rematch on Raw?
