WWE Friday Night Smackdown 2/8/13…Elimination Chamber Madness
February 8, 2013 2 Comments
We are a little more than a week away from the Elimination Chamber, we find out what is in store for The World’s Heavyweight Champion, and The Big Show.
Tonight, on Smackdown.
Big Show’s bus enters the parking lot, and we see Big Show running quickly into the building, in case Alberto Del Rio enters.
A new theme song, it sounds like it’s from Flo-Rida, and we have a new intro too. We are in Jacksonville, Florida. Here comes The Big Show to the ring.
Big Show is not popular, so that is okay to be forced into putting his World Heavyweight Title in a Last Man Standing match, is that popular? And how about a latin maniac can ambush him in his hotel room, is that fair?
The crowd cheers for that.
This is Bizarro World.
When you’re popular, you can do whatever you want. He doesn’t get us, he tries, and tries, but he just doesn’t get us. When he lays out Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez, they call him a bully? Yet it’s okay when he tries to conduct business in his hotel room, he is called a coward? Before Del Rio attacked him, he signed the contract, which means the World heavyweight Championship is coming back to Big Show, where it belongs.
Alberto Del Rio is suspended for his actions, who cares? he gets a night off, and this is all a double standard. One man is responsible for this, and that’s Booker T. He is jealous because of his accolades, he is jealous because of his titles, he is jealous because he is the biggest man in the world, and he is mostly jealous because he can still compete….
Can you dig it, sucka?
Booker T comes out, and asks what Show’s problem is? He receives his World Title rematch, despite blowing his opportunity at Royal Rumble.
Big Show wants to know who gave Del Rio his hotel information. If it wasn’t him, it was one of his flunkies. The only thing that is keeping Booker T going is Big Show. Booker tells him he treats all of his superstars the same, which is why he suspended Del Rio.
Booker didn’t answer the question, who gave the hotel information?
Booker says Big Show is the biggest athlete, he can be found rather easily, but he needs to focus his attention on his opponent tonight. Big Show asks why wasn’t he informed on his cell phone? Or tweet? Booker says his opponent is someone who lost this past Monday night, but he wants to badly get into the Elimination Chamber, and that is The Big Red Monster, Kane. Now can you dig that, sucka?
Big Show Vs Kane, tonight.
The sides seem even now after this past Monday night, with The Shield and WWE. We will see that footage, later tonight.
Our first match are two men that need wins, Kofi Kingston Vs Cody Rhodes.
Rhodes picks up the win with Crossroads, going to the pay window, if ya wheel.
Team Hell No have had their issues lately, and it took place Monday night, when Daniel Bryan cost Kane his match with Sheamus. And this past Wednesday night on Main Event, Kane cost Daniel Bryan his match against Damien Sandow.
Daniel goes up to Kane, he apologized for costing Kane his match this past Monday. He wants to be on the same page, and he forgives Kane for Wednesday night. He thinks he should come to the ring with Kane against Big Show. From a psychological standpoint, he defeated Big Show in 45 seconds to win the World Heavyweight Title. For public image, it would be good to be shown with a man who is already in the Elimination Chamber.
Kane tells Daniel not another word, the next time he hears from Daniel it is to congratulate Kane after entering the Elimination Chamber match, and slamming Big Show into oblivion.
Next, The Eye of the Storm, with Brock Lesnar and what he did to Mr. McMahon last week, an update on Vince.
2 weeks ago, the Beast himself made a return, and F-5′d Vince McMahon.
Vince had hip surgery this week, and is at home resting. We also see this past week on Raw, Vickie Guerrero is responsible for bringing back Brock Lesnar.
Brock comes out, and gives The Miz a F-5.
We also see with ESPN.com first breaking the news, Bruno Sammartino will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Video of Bruno is being shown.
More action in the ring, Great Khali will face Titus O’ Neil.
Khali wins with the Khali Chop.
Here comes a bad man, The World’s Strongest Man….Mark Henry.
Mark takes out Titus just for being in his way, and he is headed to the ring.
Khali hits a Khali Chop, Henry is on one knee, but Mark gets pissed, and you don’t want Mark to be pissed….WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!!!!
A commercial break.
Moments ago, we see Mark Henry pissed off, and giving Khali a World’s Strongest Slam.
Mark tells us The Hall of Pain is now open, and he is bent on destruction. Is there any questions? Khali doesn’t have any questions, Titus O’ Neil doesn’t have any questions. Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara, this past Monday on Raw, if they had any questions, he thinks he answered them.
We see footage from Henry taking out Mysterio and Sin Cara.
All of this could have been avoided, and it’s Booker T’s fault. He assembled an impressive list of Elimination Chamber participants, but he made one mistake, he left Mark out. How do you leave out the World’s Strongest Man? And that was a critical time to overlook Mark, because he is not one to be overlooked. He needs an explanation, so he wants Booker T to come out now, and answer to him. If he doesn’t, he will come to the locker room, and destroy the entire WWE roster.
Here comes Booker T.
It ain’t going down like this, this is Smackdown.
There is no room for the Elimination Chamber for the World’s Strongest Man, and if there is no room, Mark will make room for himself. And you know what that means? He will injure everyone, and become the only man in the Elimination Chamber.
Booker T said that Mark has been out for 9 long months, and he has to know if he still has it in him. But if beats one of the participants tonight, he’ll be in. His opponent? “The Viper” Randy Orton.
Tonight, Mark Henry Vs Randy Orton.
Big Show is upset at the bus driver, and orders him to set the thermostat at 68 degrees, cook his steak, and the toilet is clogged up again, fix that.
He can’t find good help, Show is headed back to the ring, and we see Alberto Del Rio in the wings.
Big Show Vs Kane, now.
Big Show wins with a WMD. After the match, Del Rio shows up on the Titantron, he met a new friend….Big Show’s bus driver. He told him everything that Big Show makes him do, so in honor of Big Show, how about he comes outside and see what he did for Show.
Big Show heads out to the parking lot, and sees the tires have been taken. Show starts to cry, asking why these things happen to him, and Del Rio pours orange pain all over him. Del Rio runs off, and we see him pull up on a tow truck, telling Show he knows someone who can sell him great tires. Just let him know.
Jack Swagger is in the ring, he is facing Justin Gabriel.
Swagger wins with a Patriot Act, his new name for Ankle Lock.
Books to Read foundation with WWE video is being shown, to join the WWE For Reading Challenge.
Tonight, Randy Orton Vs Mark Henry.
We see last week on Raw, when Tensai dressed up in lingerie, and danced with Brodus Clay. We will ignore that.
In the ring, Tensai Vs Heath Slater.
The rest of 3MB come out and lay out Tensai, but Brodus Clay comes out, and helps him take care of 3MB. Then they dance together, so they are officially a tag team.
Tonight, Mark Henry will face Randy Orton.
But first, Antonio Cesaro Vs Sin Cara.
Unreal, Sin Cara pulls off a Canadian Destroyer, and does NOT get the win. The best move in wrestling does not get a win. Cesaro wins with a Neutralizer.
Randy Orton is with Matt Striker.
He is not impressed with Mark Henry, taking out anyone he wants, being out 9 months. Because that means he has to go through him, and that won’t happen.
The odds are even, next.
When we come back, Matt Striker is with The Miz. He wants to know how Miz is doing after Monday night’s attack.
Miz has been in the ring with many superstars, but he saw something in Brock Lesnar’s eyes he had never seen before, a different animal. But he’s still here on Smackdown.
Cesaro runs in and laughs, calling Miz a typical American, someone who whines and complains, but does nothing.
Miz said he is right, it’s time to do something. So the two men start to fight.
Raw Rebound, featuring The Shield, John Cena, Ryback, and Sheamus.
The match is set for Elimination Chamber, The Shield Vs Sheamus, Ryback, and John Cena.
Our main event is up next, Mark Henry Vs Randy Orton.
Mark Henry wins the match with a World’s Strongest Slam. Henry is in the Elimination Chamber match.
The show ends with Mark Henry telling us The Hall of Pain is in session.
Another average show, but seeing Mark Henry, and Jack Swagger back is a great change of pace. Even though the match was short, Mark Henry was impressive, and being able to lift up Great Khali the way he did was awesome. We still don’t have the full list of participants set for the Chamber match, but that should be solved this Monday, at least, let’s hope so, since the PPV is just 9 days away.
But nothing else happened tonight, I am just not feeling Big Show Vs Alberto Del Rio, because we had already seen it, which is one problem WWE has. When two guys compete for a title match, we HAVE to see them in the same matches, for at least minimum 3 times. I understand Show receiving a rematch at Rumble, since he had just lost the title, but why does he realistically get another title shot, when he lost in the last match?
I also hate how Smackdown has become an infomercial for Raw, a program that already has 3 hours of TV.
What did you think of the show? Let me know, I will talk to you Monday night.
