Friday 8:00 PM on SyfyIn Season
|I got to the show a little late. A guy next to me told me that Dolph Ziggler beat Shelton Benjamin in a Superstars match. Goldust then beat Mike Knox in a match that was also for Superstars. |
The show opened with Rey Mysterio y La Familia in the ring. CM Punk crashed the party and set up a match for WrestleMania.
R Truth pinned The Miz with help from Daniel Bryan, who kept him from cheating. David Otunga was also at ringside. Drew McIntyre got another Money In The Bank shot (weird, I know) beating some jobber in 30 seconds.
Big Show took on John Morrison but I had a phone call I had to take and missed the finish. The guy next to me said Show won.
Vickie Guerrero also got into it with Tiffany about something. I think it set up a match for Tiffany with Michelle McCool because they had a match that ended when Vickie ran in ad attacked Tiffany. Beth Phoenix made the save and laid out Vickie.
The Hart Dynasty and Cryme Tyme were supposed to have a match but angry Undertaker hit the ring and laid them all out.
Kane and Luke Gallows were having a match when Punk interfered and they laid out Kane. Rey made the save.
The final segment of the show was a Highlight Reel where Chris Jericho brought out Edge. Jericho ran down Edge and eventually it got physical. Edge got the final shot in with The Spear.
After that, they did a dark match where Edge beat Jericho to send the crowd home happy.
|Just got home from the shows. I can barely put together in my head what matches were on the shows. I apologize that it's a bit scatterbrained, but |
hopefully you can put it together a little cleaner.
Opening dark match
Jimmy Yang Wang defeated Tyler Reks.
*Dolph Ziggler defeated Shelton Benjamin.
*Goldust defeated Mike Knox
Smackdown (The order is probably incorrect for these matches):
Rey Mysterio brought his family out and introduced them to the crowd and let us know it was his daughter's birthday and got us to sing Happy Birthday. Before we could finish, the SES came out and interrupted. Punk kept egging on Rey to fight while upsetting his family, and specifically his daughter. Rey got his family out of the ring and started taking them to the back while
Punk creepily finished the Happy Birthday song
R-Truth defeats The Miz after Daniel Bryan pushed Miz's feet off the ropes when he used them for leverage, causing a distraction.
Backstage segment with Teddy Long welcoming Tiffany to Smackdown. Vickie interrupts and we find out Tiffany is going to be a wrestler
. Vickie books her in a match with Michelle McCool.
The Hart Dynasty and Cryme Time went to a no contest when The Undertaker appeared and give them all finishers.
Backstage, Teddy Long confronts Drew McIntyre about has losses the last two weeks, and says that not only has Mr. McMahon removed them from the records, but he's hand picked an opponent for his match tonight for the final? spot in Money in the Bank.
Drew McIntyre defeats local worker Aaron Bolo to claim his spot in Money in the Bank.
Tiffany beats McCool by DQ when Vickie Guerrero attacks her. McCool, Guerrero and Layla give Tiffany a beat down until Beth Phoenix comes out to make the save to one of the loudest reactions of the night.
Big Show defeated John Morrison with a punch to the face when Morrison was jumping off a springboard move.
Kane defeated Luke Gallows by DQ when Punk interfered.
On air show ended with Edge on Jericho's Highlight Reel. Back and forth with Edge attempting to spear Jericho, but gets hit with the World Title knocking him out.
Show goes dark and Teddy Long makes Jericho defend the World Title (in his suit and tie) against Edge (in street clothes). I believe Edge won by DQ. After Jericho left Edge got on the mic and thanked us all and told us how much he loves Seattle and all the things
it has produced (local musicians, etc) and that he hoped to retire here some day.
|1. Drew McIntyre, Kane, Shelton Benjamin, Matt Hardy, and Dolph Ziggler beat Christian, MVP, Kofi Kingston, Jack Swagger, and Evan Bourne in a 10-man Smackdown vs Raw MITB tag match. McIntyre hit his double arm DDT on christian for the win. Drew grabbed a ladder from under the ring and tried to do the same thing that Ziggler did last week, but everyone came back to the ring and pushed the ladder over. |
2. Vickie Guerrero, Michelle McCool, Layla, Alicia Fox, and Maryse defeated Beth Phoenix in a handicap match. Vickie turned it into a handicap match. Beth was destroying all divas in the beginning, but she ending up getting pinned by Vickie. All the heel divas tried to hold Beth down so Vickie could do a Frog Splash off the second rope, but Eve, Gail Kim, Kelly Kelly, and Mickie James made the save. That left Beth and Vickie alone in the ring. Vickie tried to escape, but beth held her by her pants and ended up ripping them off. Vickie was wearing pink under wear that read "excuse me." It was pretty funny.
Jericho came out and cut a promo on Edge and WrestleMania. He put over how Edge always comes back from every injury he's gotten. He says that edge can't beat him because of his DNA. His says its his DNA that always gets him hurt and injured. He said he's going to end Edge's career at WrestleMania. He said that Edge should blame his DNA for his loss at mania. Edge ran out and beat on Jericho for a little bit. He set up for the spear but Jericho ducked out under the ring. They had a stare down as Jericho walked backwards up the ramp. Edge was left holding the World Title in the middle of the ring.
John Morrison Came out to the ring and introduced R-Truth, who did his usual entrance. R-Truth did an intro for Morrison. I don't know if this made the actual show, but they made fun of ShowMiz for a while. They mostly made fun of Big Show's weight. Show and Miz then came out and the match started.
3. Big Show vs. R-Truth ended in an apparent no-contest. They didn't announce who won or lost. Big Show was in control for the most part. The finish came when Miz tried to get in the ring, but truth knocked him out the ring. JoMo went to go handle Miz. When Truth turned around, he got caught and JoMo ran in and they both got caught. Big Show was about to hit a double chokeslam, but JoMo and Truth countered and truth hit his scissors kick, while JoMo hit a spinning heel kick off the second rope. Miz got in the ring, but was hit with Truth's spinning elbow. Jomo finished with Starship Pain. http://prowrestling.net/

|Wow that was Fast,I'll be damned,they actally have enough faith in Swagger to run with the ball.It may be too soon ,but I really like this. |
Swagger/Mysterio can all be awesome matches
Hell we may even see Swagger/Christian again after the draft hopefully.We already know those 2 can deliver Quality stuff.
Swagger reminds me of an early Kurt Angle.Before he went all Intense.
this is bull. if any rising starshould be world champ, or at least in contention for one, is kofi. honestly,he's the only one that theyactually pushed (semi) correctly, and were doing a good job at it. but then, decided to throw all that effort away just to push swagger, who hasn't got half the charisma or crowd reaction as kingston. it's very funny how the wwe always seems to be neglecting blacks now... and this is not the only time that this has happened within the past 2 years
this kind of stuff they pull pisses me off
|Plus he has an awesome lisp. No, just kidding. It's quite awful actually. |
This doesn't make much sense. He needs a little more buildup. Plus SD needs a face champion because every main-eventer is heel. Swagger vs Y2J, Batista, Punk won't work.
|At Extreme Rules: Jack Swagger will take on the Edge/Chris Jericho winner. |
Swagger promo. He says he deserves to be champion, and is the best natural athlete since HBK retired. He was interrupted by John Morrison. Lots of jokes, including some about hi lisp. Morrison calls him non champion worthy. Funny back and forth. Morrison gets one up on Swagger and Jack throws temper tantrums. He gets back in ring and match starts.
Match is briefly stopped due to a cut on Swagger. Good match, which Swagger wins with the Doctor Bomb.
Later, CM Punk says that he will convert Young to Straight Edge.
Chris Jericho and Wade Barrett backstage were interrupted by Swagger. Swagger says he's sure thing. He's a world champion.
Shad Gaspard out to new music, but goes to the back. Then he comes back to the Cryme Tyme theme. Shad has shaved head. Says there is always someone in the way, and you should take what you deserve. He says it's his time. "My tyme" is his new slogan.
JTG comes out but shad kills him with clothesline.
Drew McIntyre vs. Matt Hardy is next. Drew says he isn't going to waste his time talking to the losers in the crowd. Drew wins with his finisher.
Off camera, Hardy is helped out to the back.
Punk came out next. The crowd was into him. Serena then heeled them, as did Punk. Standard mic work by Punk. Gallows talks about how shaving his head saved him. Punk tells Young that Straight Edge will help him on NXT. He said shaving his head will help. Young first agrees then refuses. SES beat him down. Rey Mysterio makes the save and went to shave Punk's head but Punk got away.
They announce Punk vs. Rey Mysterio for Extreme Rules, with Punk's hair on the line.
Teddy Long comes out and announces Rey vs. Punk in a street fight right now.
Rey won in a good match. It may have been a dark match.
Baretta and Croft came out and cut a promo. They are taking on The Hart Dynasty tonight. The Dynasty wins with a Sharpshooter.
Josh Matthews asks Dolph Ziggler backstage how it felt to put Great Khali to sleep. Ziggler answers by putting Josh to sleep.
Swagger and Edge get into it backstage. Edge says he will beat Swagger at Extreme Rules. He says it with a lisp.
Edge and Chris Jericho went to a double countout they brawled around the ring. They kept going for a while until Edge hit Jericho with the spear. Swagger came out but got speared by Edge as well.
Edge then cut a promo for the local crowd, talking about how he wanted to wrestle in Chi Town since he was a kid. That ended the show.
