WWE Friday Night Smackdown….The Peep Show Returns

We are 9 days away from No Way Out, and we are at the University of South Carolina.  Booker T, Michael Cole, and Josh Matthews welcome us to the show.

Out comes Alberto Del Rio to start the show.

Del Rio wants to show us what he did to Sheamus this past Monday night, and we see Del Rio attacking Sheamus after his match.

Del Rio said there will be more coming, because at No Way Out, he will break his arm, and take his title.

Here comes Sheamus….

Actually, it’s Ricardo Rodriguez, dressed in a Sheamus wig, and outfit, even screaming, like Sheamus.

Del Rio said anyone can pound his chest like a caveman.

Anyone can spike their hair, like a little kid, and anyone can act like a hooligan.

But there is only one Alberto Del Rio.

So what will happen, will you hit me with a Brogue Kick?

Ricardo tries, and falls.

Here comes the real Sheamus, and he’s not smiling, going right after Del Rio.

Sheamus sets Del Rio up with an Irish Curse off the ramp, but Ricardo distracts Sheamus for a second for Del Rio to kick Sheamus.

Teddy Long is out, representing Mr. Laurinaitis.  By Mr. Laurinaitis, in honor of People Power, we will have two matches.  Kane Vs Sheamus, and Del Rio will compete next, against The Great Khali.

Cross Arm Breaker, that’s all she wrote.  Del Rio dominated Khali.

Video from Raw, talking about Big Show.  He is not an entertainer, he is a giant….dammit.

Teddy Long is on the phone, and we see Brodus Clay, Cameron, and Naomi enter Teddy’s office.  There is some good news, and some bad news.  The bad news is to protect him from The Big Show, he is not allowed on Monday night anymore, but the good news is he an exclusive member of Smackdown.  They still have that?

Brodus warns Teddy that when he sees his opponents, he sees The Big Show.

Brodus has a match, and the Funkadactyls are in full effect here tonight.  Brodus will face Derrick Bateman, now.

Brodus destroys Derrick, big splash to win the match.

Sin Cara is up next.

Sin Cara’s opponent is Drew McInrtyre.

This was a bit longer, and Sin Cara wins with a rolling DDT.  A good match here.

Still to come tonight, Sheamus Vs Kane, one on one.

The big Ryback is up next.

His two opponents are in the ring, and I don’t like their chances.  For those of you keeping score at home, and you know who you are….Tony Andriotis and Kevin Mahoney are his opponents tonight, this match won’t last long.

Match over, feed him more.

The Peep Show is up next.

When we come back, Cody Rhodes comes out first, which is a bit odd, since he is the guest of the show.

Cody doesn’t even want the entire set put up.  Christian was going to ask him some projective questions, but he doesn’t answer to Christian, Christian should answer to him.

He brought back prestige to the Intercontinental Title, not a man who is living a mid-life crisis, like Christian is. 

Here comes Captain Charisma.

Christian reminds Cody that he beat him for the Intercontinental Title.  If he wanted to take over as a host, all he had to do was ask.

Cody asked who is he fooling.  Before Over the Limit, he didn’t pander to the crowd.  So why did he turn “soft”?

Christian said he had a moment of clarity.  The night before Wrestlemania, he was inducting his best friend into the Hall of Fame, you might have heard of him….”The Rated R Superstar” Edge.  He had a tough year, and a very serious injury, but when Edge gave his speech, and he looked around the crowd, it came to him.  Does he want to be known as a guy who whines and complains, asking for one more match, or does he want to do what he does best?  Win titles, and get into the Hall of Fame.

Hall of Fame?  Please, Cody knows all about Hall of Famers.  His father, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes is a Hall of Famer, and someday, he will be too.   Christian is a guy who took advantage over a situation, and got lucky.  But at No Way Out, he will take that title back.  Can he tell share something?

Christian wants Cody to shut his mouth.  He started The Peep Show, he can easily stop it by shutting Cody’s mouth.

I’m here to show the world….

Dolph Ziggler comes out and tells Cody he is here to do what he does best….beat Christian.

We have a match, and Cody confirmed he is getting his rematch against Christian at No Way Out.

Christian wins the match with a Frogsplash.

After the match, Cody and Christian stare each other down, 9 days away from locking up for a rematch.

Coming up next, Michael Cole’s Raw Adventure.

Raw Rebound, featuring Michael Cole Vs John Cena.

Booker T and Josh Matthews are having fun at Cole’s expense, and just like that, Cole has a mic.

May I have your attention please?

Raw was one of the most traumatic experiences of his life.  And he knows the fans and wrestlers alike will let bygones be bygones.

Now we have Hornswoggle as Jim Ross, complete with barbecue sauce.

Hornswoggle wants to see the footage again.

Damien Sandow interrupts the fun.

His name is Damien Sandow, and he is here to help us.  For a long time, guys like Hornswoggle has been a clult like status in WWE, which only puts them in their own demise.  He will not allow Hornswoggle to have fun anymore, and he will be taught a lesson this evening.

You’re welcome.

Tyson Kidd comes to Hornswoggle’s defense, and lays him out with a beautiful dropkick.  He wants Damien in the ring, but Damien declines.  He turns to leave, but comes back when Tyson has his back to him, and gives him a swinging Neckbreaker.

Cartwheels for everyone.

Still to come tonight, Sheamus will face Kane.  We’ll hear from Kane, next.

Kane is backstage, and we see Matt Striker.  He wants to know Kane’s feelings on the fact he can pin the WWE Champion and the World Heavyweight Champion in a span of a week.  Kane has no feelings.  How does CM Punk feel after he gave him a chokeslam last Monday night, or ask Sheamus how he will feel when he does the same thing later tonight.  He just cares about winning the Triple Threat match at No Way Out, and becoming the new WWE Champion.

What about the look he gave AJ last Monday night?

Kane walks away, and we see AJ waiting in the wings.

Our next match is Jimmy Uso taking on this man who Teddy Long has to announce.  He is accompanied by his lover….Aksana…Antonio Cesaro.

Cesaro wins with a Cradle Belly to Back Mat Slam.  Of course, they don’t call the finishing move, so thank you Wikipedia.

Top moments on WWE Raw.  Sheamus winning the Battle Royal, and the winner gets a title shot.  It’s for wrestlers who have never had a title shot before.  Jesse “The Body” Ventura was a guest host that night.  Sheamus proved that he is here to stay.

Speaking of Sheamus, our main event….Sheamus Vs Kane is up now.

Kane was DQ’d after Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez came out before Sheamus set Kane up for a Brogue Kick.  Sheamus took care of RR, but he turned around into a Chokeslam, but AJ came out and smiled at Kane.  Kane was distracted enough to get a Brogue Kick.  The show ends with Sheamus giving Ricardo Rodriguez a Brogue Kick.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Just your average paint by numbers show tonight.  Even the Peep Show was just okay, but we finally received an explanation on why Christian turned face, or at least by his point of view.  Ziggler Vs Christian was the highlight of the show, and of course that always happens when those two lock up.  Kane Vs Sheamus was a good match too, but of course the highlight of that match is seeing AJ.  It’s so obvious of pairing up Kane and AJ that I don’t think they will do it.  I truly hope I am wrong though.

Other than that, everything else was there.  It’s ridiculous to state that Brodus Clay is “exclusive” to Smackdown, because nothing is exclusive anymore, so I am sure we will see a Brodus Clay Vs Big Show match in the future. 

I won’t be able to see Raw live this coming Monday because I have other plans, however I am recording it and will get it done sometime on Monday, so be on the look out for that.  Enjoy seeing the return of Mr. McMahon and I hope something monumental happens on this 3-hour show.  Let me know what you think of the show.
