WWE Friday Night Smackdown! 8/27/10

Smackdown open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Todd Grisham and Matt Striker are the announcers.  Tonight, Rey Mysterio vs. Kane in a No DQ Match and Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship, and Dolph can lose the title by DQ!  Also, The Undertaker returns!  Tony Chimel is the ring announcer.

Non-Title No DQ Match: Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. World Heavyweight Champion Kane.  Mysterio’s strategy is to be abusive and elusive.  Kane’s is to beat the crap out of him and throw him around.  Kane throws Mysterio outside and slams him into the barricade.  Kane brings in a Singapore cane.  Mysterio gets it and hits Kane’s legs with it.  Kane mows Mysterio down with a big boot for 2.  Kane beats up Mysterio and locks him in a cravat.  Mysterio fights back and tries a springboard, but gets dropped all the way to the floor.  Mysterio hits a drop toe hold into the steps, then hits the Bombs Away off of the announce table.  Insta-commercials.  Mysterio dives off the top right into an uppercut from Kane.  Cover gets 2.  Kane applies a rear chin lock.  Kane hits a sidewalk slam for 2.  Kane brings in a chair.  Mysterio lands a dropkick  and a springboard Bombs Away, then a headscissors.  Mysterio goes for the 619, but Kane catches him and goes for a chokeslam.  Mysterio counters and goes for a rana, but Kane blocks that.  Mysterio chop blocks Kane’s knee, then attacks it with the chair.  Mysterio hits the 619 and goes for the springboard again, but Kane catches him with a chokeslam onto the chair for the pin (6:12 shown).  Fun match.

Alberto Del Rio comes out and feigns concern for the injured Mysterio.  He attacks Mysterio and throws his injured arm into the barricade, then locks him in a cross armbreaker.  That dick.  He comes back, then puts Mysterio’s arm in a chair and rams it into the post.  Del Rio is an all around unpleasant individual.

Moments ago, ^ happened.

CM Punk (w/ Luke Gallows, Joey Mercury, & Serena) vs. JTG.  JTG goes for quick pinning combinations.  Punk kicks his ass and elbows him in the shoulder while yelling at the SES that this is how it’s done.  Punk hits the running knee and the bulldog, then the Go 2 Sleep.  Punk locks in the Anaconda Vice for the first time in ages to get the submission win in 1:56.  Total squash.  After the match, Punk makes the SES get on their knees so he can bitch at them.  He tells them to be better or be gone.

Teddy Long and Rosa Mendez are backstage.  Rosa is exercising as usual.  She leaves, then Teddy sits down to enjoy WWE Magazine.  Hornswoggle is hiding in a plant again.  Hornswoggle scares Teddy, then they play charades until Teddy figures out that Hornswoggle has been spying on LayCool.  Hornswoggle can’t write or talk.  Teddy has some sort of plan.  This was stupid.

Raw Rebound.

Tonight, The Undertaker returns!

Last week, Vickie Guerrero was a bitch and cost Kofi Kingston the Intercontinental title, then Dolph Ziggler was a dick and beat the shit out of him.  Kofi gets another shot NEXT!

“Dashing” Cody Rhodes gives tips about shaving.  Fuck that.

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: Dolph Ziggler (c) (w/ Vickie Guerrero) vs. Kofi Kingston.  Ziggler can lose the title by DQ.  Kofi goes on the attack.  Ziggler bails immediately.  Kofi hits him with a big chop coming off the apron.  Back inside, Kofi gets an Oklahoma roll for 1, then a clothesline for 2.  Kofi goes for the Trouble In Paradise, but Ziggler holds the ropes to avoid it.  Kofi hits the S.O.S. for 2.  Insta-commercials.  Ziggler avoids a diving leg drop from Kofi.  They trade punches.  Ziggler drops Kofi with a boot to the face for 2.  Ziggler hits an elbow drop for 2.  Ziggler avoids the Trouble In Paradise again.  Kofi hits the S.O.S. again and gets the pin, but then the referee notices Ziggler’s hand was on the rope.  Kofi is annoyed.  He covers again for 2.  Ziggler avoids Kofi in the corner and Kofi spears the post.  Ziggler covers for 2.  Ziggler hits the Hennig neck snap for 2.  Ziggler hits a neckbreaker for 2.  Ziggler cranks on Kofi’s shoulder.  Ziggler goes for the sleeper hold, but Kofi gets the ropes.  Vickie slaps Kofi behind the referee’s back.  Ziggler yells at her, then hits Kofi with something for 2.  Ziggler pounds on Kofi, then hits a big elbow drop for 2.  Ziggler applies a rear chin lock.  Kofi fights out and makes his comeback.  Diving chop gets 2.  Idiot Grisham calls it a Superman punch AGAIN.  Kofi hits the corner rebound kick and a diving cross body for 2.  Ziggler hits a fireman carry for 2.  Ziggler goes for the Zig Zag, but Kofi holds onto the ropes to block it and dropkicks Ziggler to the floor.  Kofi goes for a dive and has to dive over Vickie to hit a cross body to the floor.  Double clothesline spot on the floor.  Kofi beats the count back into the ring, but Vickie holds Dolph back.  Kofi wins the match, but Ziggler keeps the title (10:45 shown).  Okay match, but not as good as I expected from these two.  Kofi chases Ziggler through the crowd.

Tonight, Undertaker returns!

Last week, Kane talked for 82 months about this stupid Undertaker angle.

I don’t know if you’ve heard yet, but The Undertaker is returning tonight.

Jack Swagger Sr. Invitational Shootout: Jack Swagger vs. Montel Vontavious Porter.  If Swagger wins, he gets to host the V.I.P. Lounge.  If MVP wins, he gets to throw a big party that Swagger has to pay for.  First one to score five takedowns wins.  Swagger wears amateur headgear.  He practices takedowns, then taunts MVP, so MVP slaps him.  They do this bullshit.  Swagger gets 3 takedowns in a row, then MVP punches him in the face to get DQ’d, so Swagger wins this stupid thing in 2:12.  Swagger jumps MVP from behind in the aisle and locks in the ankle lock.  If I haven’t made it clear by now, this was stupid.

WWE Women’s Champions Layla & Michelle McCool pose for pictures backstage with Kaval looking on.  They talk shit about Melina.  I hate them and I feel sorry for Kaval to have to breathe the same air as them.

Photos from the show in China.

Last week, Christian beat Drew McIntyre, then McIntyre and Cody Rhodes beat the shit out of him.  Matt Hardy tried to save, but got his ass kicked too.

Tony Chimel introduces Alberto Del Rio’s personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez.

Alberto Del Rio vs. Carlos Sanchez.  Sanchez is erstwhile known as Alex Koslov.  So Russians are Mexicans now in WWE land.  They lock up.  Del Rio beats up Sanchez.  Del Rio hits a short lariat and a nice release German suplex.  Del Rio applies a rear chin lock.  Sanchez tries to fight out, but gets beaten up some more.  Sanchez avoids a charge in the corner and tries to make a comeback, but is quickly cut off.  Del Rio shoves Sanchez off the top rope to the floor, then throws him back in and locks in the Minoru Special for the win in 2:30.  Fun little squash.  I’m happy Koslov got to get in a little bit of offense.

The Big Show and Kelly Kelly are headed our way!

The Big Show (w/ Kelly Kelly) vs. Luke Gallows (w/ Joey Mercury & Serena).  Show kicks Gallows’ ass all over the ring.  CM Punk watches backstage, looking displeased.  Show chops Gallows in the back, then throws him out of the ring.  Show follows and chops Gallows chest over the announce table.  Show yells at Serena, then Kelly tackles her.  Show goes for another chop, but Gallows lands some elbows and punches.  Gallows tries to get going and manages to knock Show to a knee.  Show kills him with a punch, then nails him with the KO punch for the pin in 2:23.  Lots of squashes tonight.

The Undertaker returns NEXT!

The Undertaker comes out.  He says he’s still the Deadman and the ring is still his yard.  He will never pardon the guilty.  He talks about Kane’s treachery.  He wants his holy grail, the World Heavyweight Championship.  Kane, holder of said championship, comes out to the stage.  He babbles about whatever.  Something about him being the dominant one now.  Undertaker says he built the devil’s house and the devil calls him sir.  He says Kane is not worthy of being World Champion or being his brother.  Taker says he taught Kane everything Kane knows about being evil, but not everything Taker knows.  Taker says he’ll win like always.  Kane says this time, it’s going to end like it did at SummerSlam.  Kane vows on the grave of their mother that Taker will never rest in peace.  This was actually kind of entertaining.

Okay show.
