Not figuratively, but Smackdown does gain a main eventer to freshen things up. The question is who does Raw get? Tune in and find out, Green Day tells us to “Know Your Enemy”, certainly wise advice, you never know when that enemy will strike.
We are also getting Rey Mysterio one on one against Alberto Del Rio, looking forward to that match. Here we go.
Michael Cole, Todd Grisham and Matt Striker welcome us to the show, and tonight, Kane has a message for the Deadman, after Kane’s father, Paul Bearer turned on Undertaker. I have no clue why WWE insists on shoving Michael Cole down our throats.
The Playa GM, Teddy Long comes out and he wants to welcome the newest acquisition, Edge. He is ready for a match. It will be against The All-American, American, and his trusty Bald Eagle Mascot, Jack Swagger.
Michael Cole made a screwup already. Cole refers what happened on Raw as “last night”. Vince needs to scream into his headset that Smackdown will air on Friday, not the night they tape it, which is Tuesday. So when Cole refers to Raw as “last night” some people may think Raw is on Thursday night. Just saying.
Swagger is glad that Edge is now on Smackdown, because he wants to get revenge on what he did the last week. Edge speared the Soaring Eagle, that’s just wrong, or maybe stupid.
Edge tells Swagger to get into the ring, and get his Eagle out of there, because he has no problem “flipping the bird”, very funny.
Edge wins with the Spear, excellent match to kick things off tonight. Edge even speared the Swagger Soaring Eagle, which is still funny to see. I like Edge on Raw, but he just fits better on Smackdown in my opinion.
Edge grabs the mic and tells SWagger that even though this is a PG show, he truly “flipped the bird”.
Footage showcasing Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio. Striker says that this match tonight is the first time ever Rey Vs Del Rio, but they met in Del Rio’s first match, and this was 2 months ago.
“Dashing” Cody Rhodes has his grooming tips, he tells us to brush our teeth, and we can be “Dashing”. Use an electric toothbrush.
The Beautiful People, I mean Lay-Cool is out. Tonight, it will be Layla taking on Kelly Kelly for the 1,300th time, as opposed to Kelly Kelly Vs Michelle McCool, who have faced off only 950 times.
Wow, what a shocker, Layla wins with the Lay Out. Natalya accompanied Kelly, but she did nothing at all, except trying to give Layla the Sharpshooter after the match, so I guess their feud still continues.
Tonight, MVP takes on Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship, and maybe this time, we will have a pin fall?
Big Show is out now, he is running to the ring. October is a big month for Big Show. His movie “Knucklehead” opens up on October 22nd, and on October 24th, he will lead Team Smackdown to take on Team Raw at Bragging Rights. He is named team captain, and he gets to choose his own team, he said egos will be checked at the door, he will find the best superstars together, so they can defeat Team Raw. The first order of business is to bring out the official team mascot, and no, it’s not the Swagger Soaring Eagle, it is Hornswoggle.
The Dudebusters come out, and they want to be a part of Team Smackdown. Show acts like he doesn’t know who they are. He said he is going to review the roster and choose wisely. The Dudebusters said they can go to Teddy Long, demand to be traded and join The Miz’s team, so they take off the Smackdown shorts and wear Raw T-Shirts, Hornswoggle is upset at them, so Show gives them both a double chokeslam.
Another video of Del Rio taking out Rey Mysterio.
The WWE Tag Team champions, Drew McIntyre and “Dashing” Cody Rhodes are out here. They have a match against Kaval (Remember him?) and Kofi Kingston (Remember him?). This should be a good match.
And Kaval loses…again to the Crossroads. Match was okay, but I just don’t understand how Alex Riley gets more TV time than the ACTUAL NXT Season 2 winner. Do you remember that Kaval gets a title shot? That’s okay because WWE forgot too, that will never happen with Kaval losing all the time.
Paul Bearer is in the ring when we come back. He introduces a man who should be respected, feared, and reveared….the man who single-handedly destroyed the myth of The Undertaker….his son…Kane.
That eerie music is playing again. He said he never thought his major plan would be so easy. He brought his father back, because he is more powerful than even Undertaker could imagine. Everyone was deceived when Paul Bearer turned on Undertaker at Hell in a Cell. We all thought that when Paul returned to Taker, that triumph would take place, and we hear a gong music. I hate this music. We all realized that The Undertaker, the Phenom….is just like us. Weak, pathetic, and helpless, at the mercy of his superiors. Like Undertaker, we all answer to someone. Now, The Deadman answers to The Devil’s Favorite Demon. Taker has been betrayed by the people closest to him, he has ruined his legacy, and let down his creatures of the night. Don’t worry, they are just warming up. This promo was absolutely nothing, and it was 10 times worst because of the stupid music, with the sound effects. Stop doing that WWE.
More awesome footage displaying Rey Mysterio Vs Alberto Del Rio feud, this is great for the new fans who didn’t get Smackdown on MyNetwork.
Coming up next, IC Title match…MVP taking on Dolph Ziggler.
They story of the match was fine. Vickie went out of the ringside area and left Dolph. So Dolph had to do it by himself, until Kaitlyn, fro, NXT Season 3 came down to root for Dolph. MVP had the “Ballin” move down pat, Kaitlyn grabbed the ankle and Dolph slid in and gave him the Zig Zag for the pinfall victory. After the match, Kaitlyn wanted to hug Dolph but Vickie sees this, and she is livid.
An awesome vido talking about all the years WWE does their Tribute to the Troops, and how it means to the soldiers that are not home right now. Very touching.
Raw Rebound, featuring John Cena becoming the newest member of NEXUS…John Cena, and his reaction throughout the night.
Josh Matthews interrupts a very happy Alberto Del Rio. He is not concerned about Rey. The only thing he is concerned is how he will scrape off the bottom of his shoe after he gets done beating him. Main event match is up next.
Rey Mysterio defeated Alberto with a 619 and dropping the dime. The match was fun. Mysterio looked good in the match. Now the questions becomes where do we go from here? I hope Del Rio is moved to Raw as a part of that trade with Edge. It would make sense and give Del Rio some more wrestlers to fued with. Rey’s celebration ends the show.
This was either a hit or miss by me. The beginning and the end was fine, but everything else was boring. I hate the music they played with Kane and Paul were there. Paul never spoke about why he turned on The Undertaker, we didn’t get any days where he was laid out in the cement truck, nothing. I hope they heard the crowd’s live audience because you better believe most of the fans feel that way too. I was hoping to see Paul return so he can reunite The Brothers of Destruction. That would be fun to watch.
Seeing Edge back on Smackdown can be a fun thing. His match against Swagger was good too, but the question is where do we go from here? I guess he will work the Smackdown side in the tag match at Bragging Rights. Be interesting to see what direction they are going.
We know what direction Kaval has, and that is nowhere.
The IC Title match was fine, but to me MVP should be a heel, he is much better in that role than as a face.
Overall, Smackdown was better than last week, but can we please get Michael Cole off of our TVs?
