WWE Friday Night Smackdown! 4/16/10

WWE open, Smackdown open, pyro and ballyhoo.  We’re in London, with Todd Grisham and Matt Striker as our announcers.  Tony Chimel is the ring announcer.

Chris Jericho comes out, bitching about a Raw guy getting a shot at the Smackdown World Title at Extreme Rules.  He wants Teddy Long to resign and give him an immediate title shot against the winner at Extreme Rules.  In that order?  Edge comes out.  He says Jericho can’t beat Orton or Swagger because he’s damaged goods, then threatens to spear Jericho again.  Teddy Long comes out.  He doesn’t like Jericho “hating on him.”  He books Jack Swagger vs. Jericho vs. Edge in a Triple Threat Match for the World Championship TONIGHT!

London!

Drew McIntyre comes out.  He says the people doesn’t like him and he doesn’t like him either.

Non-Title: WWE Intercontinental Champion Drew McIntyre vs. Kane.  They brawl.  Kane hip tosses McIntyre, beats him up some more, and hits the basement dropkick for 2.  McIntyre rallies and drops Kane with a big boot.  McIntyre heats a neckbreaker for 2.  Kane catches McIntyre with a big boot as Striker talks about Kane’s ever changing back story.  Kane hits a sidewalk slam for 2, then hits the diving clothesline and goes for the chokeslam.  McIntyre bails.  McIntyre tries to leave, but Matt Hardy runs out and throws him back in the ring, which is for some reason grounds for a DQ in 3:11.  Kane chokeslams McIntyre.  Hardy comes in the ring and gets chokeslammed too.  Decent little match while it lasted.

Jack Swagger bitches at Teddy Long for having the gall to book him in a title defense tonight.  Long tells him to deal with it.

Dolph Ziggler comes out.  He says he’s been ordered to apologize for abusing an announcer last week.  He very unsincerely sincerely apologizes to Josh Matthews.  R-Truth comes out and insults him.  He says Ziggler is going to find out that “the truth hurts!”

Dolph Ziggler vs. R-Truth.  Ziggler beats up R-Truth.  He hits that swank reverse powerslam for 2, then clamps on a rear chin lock.  Truth breaks free and makes his comeback.  Ziggler dodges the Lie Detector and clamps on the sleeper hold in 2:11.

WWE bullshit fact of the night.

Non-Title: Mickie James vs. WWE Women’s Champion Michelle McCool (w/ Vickie Guerrero & Layla).  Yes, let’s revisit my most hated feud ever.  They lock up, then they both do push ups.  Mickie hits a dropkick and gets a couple of quick cradles for 2.  Mickie goes for a tornado DDT, fails, and gets her head rammed into the post.  McCool locks in a figure-four head scissors, then humps the mat.  The referee catches her using the ropes and forces her to break.  Mickie starts to make her comeback.  McCool bails.  Mickie follows and rams her into the barricade, then climbs to the top of the barricade and hits a Bombs Away.  Mickie drops Layla with a Thesz press, stares down Vickie, then rolls McCool back inside.  Neckbreaker gets 2.  Layla gets on the apron to distract Mickie, allowing McCool to hit a thrust kick for the pin in 4:20.  Whatever.  McCool keeps beating up Mickie until Beth Phoenix makes the save.  Vickie and Layla pull McCool out of the ring.  Beth chases the heels, who bail through the crowd.  Beth helps Mickie up.

Tonight, Rey Mysterio and The Hart Dynasty take on the Straight Edge Society in a six-man tag.

Grisham and Striker talk about the draft.

They show Swagger cashing in Money In The Bank to win the World Title a couple of weeks ago.

Luke Gallows threatens Darren Young backstage.  CM Punk tells them to save it for the match.  It’s next!

The United States Champion and one half of the Unified Tag Team Champions The Miz has joined Striker and Grisham for commentary.

CM Punk, Luke Gallows, & Darren Young (w/ Serena) vs. Rey Mysterio Jr. & The Hart Dynasty (w/ Natalya).  The problem with guest announcers is that they have to keep fucking showing them at the expense of the match.  Gallows and Smith start.  Smith hits a powerslam for 2.  Mysterio tags in, then tags out to Kidd before he even gets off of the apron.  They double team Gallows.  Punk tags in wrestles with Kidd.  Good stuff.  The Harts hold Punk in double suplex position for Mysterio to hit a springboard Bombs Away for 2.  Punk beats up Mysterio.  Mysterio makes a 619 attempt when he has the opening, but Punk bails.  Insta-commercials.  Mysterio kicks the shit out of Young’s leg.  Kidd tags in and works Young’s arm.  Gallows tags in and hammers Kidd.  Kidd goes for a springboard, but eats Gallows’ boot and falls out of the ring.  Gallows throws him back in and beats him up some more.  Young tags in and hits a neckbreaker for 2.  Punk takes a turn working over Kidd too.  Kidd avoids a diving leg drop from Young.  Smith gets the hot tag and runs wild.  Kidd comes off the apron with a cannonball on Gallows.  Punk rocks Smith with a big head kick for 2.  Mysterio hits Punk with a 619 around the ring post.  Smith hits the running powerslam on Punk for the pin (10:02 shown).  Good match!

Chris Jericho talks to Wade Barrett backstage.

Caylen Croft (w/ Trent Barreta) vs. JTG.  They lock up.  Shad Gaspard comes out.  Croft puts the boots to JTG.  JTG tries to fight back, but keeps getting cut off.  JTG gets an inside cradle for 2.  Croft kicks his ass some more.  JTG finally makes his comeback.  Croft avoids the Mugshot and hits a neckbreaker for 2.  JTG hits a weak Sling Blade neckbreaker for the win in 3:13.  Shad comes in and kills JTG with a clothesline and yells at him “You ain’t nothin’ without me!”  JTG makes a comeback, hits the Mugshot, and kicks Shad’s ass until he bails.  Whatever.  Just let these guys have their match and get it over with.

Edge talks to Josh Matthews backstage.

Raw Rebound.

Hype for the Extreme Rules card.

The main event is NEXT!

Triple Threat Match for the World Heavyweight Championship: Jack Swagger (c) vs. Chris Jericho vs. Edge.  Jericho’s ribs are still taped.  Entrances, intros, and we’re off!  Jericho and Swagger gang up on Edge, then Jericho schoolboys Swagger.  Swagger hits a belly to belly suplex on Jericho.  Edge beats up Swagger as Jericho bails.  Edge throws Swagger out of the ring, then gets jumped by Jericho.  Swagger trips Edge from the outside.  Jericho hits the bottom rope decapitation thing.  Swagger hits a belly to belly suplex on Edge.  Edge backdrops Jericho out of the ring, then low bridges Swagger out too.  Edge hits them both with a baseball slide dropkick.  Edge sends Jericho into the barricade, then stomps on Swagger.  After some shenanigans, we cut to insta-commercials.  Swagger avoids Edge in the corner, then works on his arm.  Swagger hits a backbreaker for 2.  Jericho makes it back to the apron and gets punched off by Swagger.  Swagger hits the springboard Vader Bomb on Edge for 2.  Swagger beats on Edge some more and sends him out of the ring.  Swagger follows him out and gets rammed into the announce table.  Jericho makes his way around and decks Edge.  Back inside, Jericho hits a backdrop suplex on Edge for 2.  Edge sends Jericho into the turnbuckles.  Swagger comes in and goes for an Oklahoma Stampede, but Edge sends him into Jericho’;s hurt ribs.  Edge hits both of them with a diving clothesline, then fights them both off.  Edge knocks Swagger off of the apron and into the table.  Jericho schoolboys Edge for 2.  Edge avoids the Lionsault and hits the Edge-O-Matic for 2.  Edge goes for the spear, but Jericho catches him and turns him into the Walls of Jericho.  Swagger comes in and Jericho locks him in the Walls instead.  Edge hits the Edgecution on Jericho.  Swagger goes for the Doctor Bomb, but Edge hits him with the Edgecution too.  Edge sets up for the spear, but Jericho nails him and covers for 2.  Swagger gets Jericho with an Oklahoma roll for 2.  Jericho hits Swagger with the Codebreaker.  Swagger rolls out of the ring.  Jericho sets up Edge for a spear.  Edge leap frogs Jericho and spears him.  They looked like they were out of position for Swagger’s save, so Edge kindly stretches his leg out for Swagger to pull him out of the ring and send him into the barricade.  After a slight cut, Swagger comes in and pins Jericho (12:34 shown).  Good match.  Swagger throws Edge in the ring and gives him the Doctor Bomb.  Once again, the show the finish unedited after the match.  The fuck?  After Swagger leaves, Jericho traps Edge’s ankle in the steps and kicks the steps into it.

Good episode of Smackdown this week.
