Smackdown spoilers from Philadelphia

By Ray Begley

Dark match: R. Truth (Ron Killings) b. Sheamus O'Shaunessy via axe kick
Smackdown: (not necessarily in order)
Vladimir Kozlov b. Stevie Richards via battering ram headbutt
Brian Kendrick w/ Ezekiel b. Shannon Moore via Sliced Bread #2
Michelle McCool b. someone from the Smackdown roster (not sure who)
Shelton Benjamin b. Jimmy Wang Yang via Paydirt
Festus b. Curt Hawkins via fireman's carry flapjack
Six-Man battle royal to determine number one contender to WWE title: The Great Khali b. Mr. Kennedy, Jeff Hardy, Umaga, MVP & Big Show
Other stuff: Edge apologized to Vickie Guerrero.  She "accepted" his apology, but announced that in her state of mind that she reinstated Undertaker and signed Taker vs. Edge for a Hell in a Cell match at Summerslam.
Also, there was an "R. Truth" vignette, so he will presumably be debuting on Smackdown shortly.
