WWE Smackdown 10/22/10…Smackdown Vs Raw…This Time It’s Personal

This is the go to home show of Smackdown for the Bragging Rights PPV, and coincidentally, Tuesday is the day that Smackdown Vs Raw 2011 comes out in video game stores.  Tonight, the main event will be Champion Vs Champion…Randy Orton Vs Kane, non-title match of course.  Here we go.

Todd Grisham, Matt Striker, and yes, Michael Cole welcome us to the show.

We kick things off with all 14 men representing their brands and Teddy Long is in the middle, holla holla.

Teddy explains the obvious, Smackdown Vs Raw will face off in a tag team match at Bragging Rights.  Teddy said he won’t be deciding the matches tonight, he will let the superstars decide, and we start with The Miz.

The Miz wants Teddy to thank him for gracing his presence on the “B” show.  He wants a 6 man tag team match.  Himself, teaming up with Ezekiel Jackson, and Sheamus.

Show said that isn’t surprising that Miz is hiding behind 2 big men.  Show says he will team up with Kofi Kingston and Rey Mysterio.

Edge wants a match tonight too, he wants a match against CM Punk, the most obnoxious man on either brand.

John Morrison wants a one on one match with Alberto Del Rio.

Jack Swagger wants to face Santino.  Are you kidding me?

I guess Tyler Reks won’t face Alex Riley, those are the only two men left out of this shin-dig.

6 Man tag team match is up now.

Rey Mysterio, Big Show, and Kofi Kingston beat The Miz, Ezekiel Jackson, and Sheamus when Rey Mysterio climbed up on Show’s shoulders and gave Miz a flying splash.  Decent match, and I’ll say it again, Kofi Kingston needs a World Title push, I am serious.  He has won every title except that.  At the very least, give him a title match and see if he can work a main event program.

For some reason, Smackdown is showing a Raw segment, in particular, John Cena and Wade Barrett program.

Josh Matthews is in the back, interviewing the Intercontinental Champion, Dolph Ziggler and the Smackdown Consultant Vicky Guerrero.

Before Josh asks a dumb question, Dolph cuts him off and says Daniel Bryan cuts him off from his behind.  He said Daniel Bryan challenging Dolph is like a High School Football team challenging a Super Bowl team.  They make score a Touchdown or 2, but in the end, they will get crushed.

So of course, the idiot Cole says he will be rooting for Dolph in his match at Bragging Rights.  Why?  Because Daniel is a nerd.  Whatever.

Jack Swagger, with his fantastic Swagger Soaring Eagle come out.  Jack will face Santino, and that match is up next.

Jack Swagger beat Santino with the Ankle Lock, although Santino did use The Cobra on the Swagger Soaring Eagle.  Hornswoggle came out during the match and attacked Michael Cole again, that is why Hornswoggle rocks.

Coming up next, John Morrison taking on Alberto Del Rio.

But first, we get a “Dashing” Cody Rhodes grooming segment.  He says to take care of your lips with some lip balm.  Extra advice, if you’re alone, getting ready for bed, and you’re by yourself, apply some moisturizer lip gloss.  It’s rejuvenated, and it’s not just for the ladies.

John Morrison taking on Alberto Del Rio now.

Alberto won the match with the Cross arm breaker.  This match was fine, but they certainly could have showcased their skills a bit more.  But as it was, a good 5 minute match that had the announcers discuss how The Miz and John Morrison can get along, as how Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio can get along.  It’s funny because if you were watching this for the first time tonight, you never would have known those 4 men feuded with each other previously.

Edge taking on CM Punk is up now.

Edge wins by DQ when Edge tried the spear and Miz with Alex Riley stopped him and got him put through a barricade.  Then all hell broke loose when every single member of the tag team match takes out each other with a big move, and it all ends when Edge speared Punk.  Team Smackdown stood together in unity.  Excellent match and honestly, I have no problem with the ending too.  A fun moment to watch.

We come back to the ring and see The Beautiful People, I mean Lay-cool, dressed as Bret “The Hitman” Hart (Michelle) and Natalya “The Anvil” Niedhart (Layla as Natalya), they do a funny impression when..

Natalya Naiedhart and Kelly Kelly come out, and we have a 4 Diva tag team match.

Natalya and Kelly Kelly win when Natalya gives Layla a Sharpshooter.  Kelly wasn’t even in the match.

Kane Vs Randy Orton, main event match is uo next.

Stand up for WWE video is on now.

Main event match, Kane Vs Randy Orton is up next.

Randy Orton beat Kane when he pulls off a RKO after the lights went out and the gong went off, but no Undertaker.  This allowed the distraction and Randy took over.  Good match, but a predictable ending.  Kane goes nuts, ending the show.  He has a buried alive match with The Undertaker at Bragging Rights.  Lights go out again, and Undertaker is underneath the ring, taking Kane straight to Hell, and the lights go out to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

After a complete domination by Smackdown, I predict a Raw victory this coming weekend at the PPV.  They did a better job tonight of truly putting over the match, although we didn’t have Daniel Bryan on the show for some reason.  Edge Vs Punk was the best match on the show, and it’s funny because the two guys were on the other shows a month ago.  But nonetheless, a good show.  Even Lay-Cool was funny with their impression of Bret “The Hitman” Hart and Natalya “The Anvil” Niedhart.  What did you think of the show?  Give me your thoughts either by email at DJKevinGillman75@aol.com or send me a message on the site.
