WWE Smackdown Results

Triple H starts off the show.  The Shield is ringside standing guard. The wrestlers are on the stage for a Town Hall Meeting.  Trips says he didn't fire Cody Rhodes.  Cody fired Cody.  He gave Cody a chance to fight for his job.  Trips says he doesn't want anyone to fear for their jobs, so he set up an open forum for the wrestlers to ask questions.  Noone steped forward.  He said he wants to grow together.  Damien Sandow supported the firing of Cody.  Kofi Kingston stepped up and said the locker room is living in fear after Cody's firing.  He doesn't see how this is good for business.
