WWE Friday Night Smackdown! 9/24/10

WWE open, Smackdown open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Todd Grisham and Matt Striker are the announcers.  Tony Chimel is the ring announcer.  Tonight, Kane has a challenge for The Undertaker!

Non-Title: World Heavyweight Champion Kane vs. Chris Masters.  Kane grabs a side headlock and lands a shoulder block for 2.  Kane grabs his headlock again.  Masters tries to fight out, so Kane nails him.  Masters manages to drop Kane with a swinging neckbreaker and a diving shoulder block.  Masters locks in the Master Lock.  Kane backs him into the corner three times to break it.  Masters hammers him with chops and punches.  Kane kicks Masters’ knee out from under him.  Kane beats up Masters for a while and works his knee.  Kane hits the basement big boot for 2.  Masters fights back, staggers Kane with an elbow smash, and dives at him.  Kane catches him mid-air with a punch, then grounds & pounds him.  Kane hits the chokeslam and the Tombstone Piledriver for the pin in 6:07.  Okay little TV match here.  Kane takes the mic and cuts another wacky Kane promo, going out amongst the people.  He says he’s going to issue a challenge to The Undertaker later tonight.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match: “Dashing” Cody Rhodes & Drew McIntyre (c) vs. The Hart Dynasty (w/ Natalya).  Wasn’t this match supposed to be on Raw next week?  Aren’t the Harts Raw guys?  I digress.  McIntyre and Smith lock up.  McIntyre pounds on Smith in the corner.  Smith hits a belly to belly suplex for 2.  Kidd tags in and the Harts double team McIntyre.  McIntyre bails and Kidd hits him with a baseball slide headscissors.  Insta-commercials.  McIntyre drops Smith with a boot.  Smith hits him with a jawbreaker.  Rhodes tags in and cuts off Smith from making the tag.  Rhodes beats up Smith.  McIntyre tags in and Pearl Harbors Smith.  Smith drops McIntyre.  Rhodes tags back in and cuts off Smith again, locking him in a rear chin lock.  Smith stands up and drops Rhodes with an electric chair drop.  McIntyre and Kidd tag in.  Kidd runs wild.  Dropkick to the head gets 2.  Kidd hits a springboard Blockbuster, but Rhodes saves.  Smith throws Rhodes out of the ring.  McIntyre drops Smith with a boot.  McIntyre exposes the turnbuckle pad and sends Kidd into it, then hits the Future Shock for the pin (4:36 shown).  Fine little match.

The Undertaker sits in a dark stairwell.

Alberto Del Rio taunts an injured Christian.  He apparently attacked Christian from behind in the parking lot because he’s a big smelly vagina.

Raw Rebound.

Hell In A Cell hype.

CM Punk is in the locker room getting ready.  Luke Gallows comes in.  Punk tells him to leave, that he’s done with him.  Gallows chokes Punk and pushes him against the wall.  Gallows says Punk has no right to pass judgment or think he’s better than anybody.  The video cuts to the next scene before the segment is over.  Weird.

Chavo Guerrero Jr. vs. Kaval.  Oh fuck yes!  They start to do a knuckle lock, but Chavo lands a cheap kick.  Kaval comes back and awesomely lands lots of wacky kicks.  Kaval locks in the Dragon Clutch on the ropes briefly, then takes a bump to the floor.  Chavo whips him into the barricade, then picks him up and drops him across it.  Back inside, Chavo hits the Eddie hilo for 2.  Chavo locks Kaval in a waist lock, then Irish whips him.  Kaval catches him with a shot and makes his awesome comeback.  Kaval hits the Tidal Wave for 2.  Chavo hits the Three Amigos, with a brainbuster on the last one.  He goes for the frog splash, but Kaval avoids it and hits a running dropkick for 2, as Chavo gets a foot on the ropes.  Kaval hits Chavo with a koppou kick in the corner, then goes for a Frankensteiner off the top.  Chavo holds into the ropes to avoid it, then hits the frog splash for the pin in 4:26.  Good little match.  Kaval looked great here.

Tony Chimel introduces Ricardo Rodriguez, who introduces Alberto Del Rio.  Del Rio comes out to talk.  They once again show him injuring Rey Mysterio Jr.  He says Mysterio will be back on Smackdown next week and he’s going to kiss him on the cheek.  Yeah, that’s what he said.  Christian comes out and beats up Del Rio.  Ricardo Rodriguez comes in and grabs Christian’s leg to let Del Rio get the advantage.  Del Rio locks Christian in the cross armbreaker, then puts a chair on the arm and rams it into the ring post.  Christian is going to be out for 4-6 months due to injury, which kills a good bit of my interest in this show.

The Undertaker is still sitting in a dark stairwell.  He looks tired and/or hurt.

Handicap Match: Curt Hawkins & Vance Archer vs. The Big Show.  Hawkins starts.  Show destroys him.  Hawkins avoids Show in the corner and leaps at him.  Show kills him with a chop in mid-air.  Archer tags in.  Show takes him down and locks him in a camel clutch for the submission win in 1:15.  Fun squash.

Josh Matthews interviews Jack Swagger, who show off his football jerseys.  The Dudebusters and Hornswoggle steal them while his back is turned.

WWE bullshit fact of the night.

CM Punk vs. Luke Gallows.  Gallows is pissed.  Punk tries to avoid his blows, but ends up getting caught and getting his ass kicked.  Gallows hits a flapjack on Punk and throws him around.  Punk rolls to the apron.  Gallows pulls him up, but Punk pulls Gallows across the top rope.  Punk hits the springboard lariat, then clamps on a front face lock.  Gallows lifts Punk.  Punk goes for a sunset flip, but doesn’t get it.  Punk hits a move for 2.  Punk lands some kicks.  Gallows boots Punk in the face and gets rolling.  Gallows hits a short lariat and the big splash for 2.  Punk avoids Gallows in the corner and hits the Go 2 Sleep for the pin in 3:35.  Fun little match.

The Undertaker is still just hanging out in a dark stairwell.

Vickie Guerrero and Kaitlyn come out.  Argh.  Vickie is obnoxious.  She has MASSIVE heat.  She introduces her man, WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler.

Non-Title: WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler (w/ Vickie Guerrero & Kaitlyn) vs. Montel Vontavious Porter.  Part of MVP’s entrance is edited out.  This show is weirdly edited.  They lock up and MVP shines.  Ziggler bails and interacts with Kaitlyn.  Vickie gets mad.  Ziggler goes back in and beats up MVP.  MVP hits a fireman carry into a press slam, then knocks Ziggler out of the ring.  Kaitlyn checks on him.  Vickie bitches at her.  Kaitlyn tires of this shit, shoves Vickie on her ass, and leaves.  Vickie whins and leaves.  Insta-commercials.  Ziggler avoids the corner Yakuza kick and gets a schoolboy for 2.  Ziggler puts the boots to MVP.  Ziggler hits some elbow drops for 2.  Ziggler applies a chin & shoulder lock with body scissors.  MVP fights out.  Ziggler clubbers him some more.  MVP avoids Ziggler in the corner and makes his comeback.  MVP goes for the Playmaker, but Ziggler counters and schoolboys him for 2.  MVP hits an Exploder for 2.  MVP hits the Yakuza kick in the corner for 2, as Ziggler gets a foot on the rope to save himself.  Ziggler pulls MVP across the top rope and goes for the Zig Zag, but MVP holds onto the rope to avoid it.  MVP goes for the Ballin’ elbow, but Ziggler bails.  Ziggler grabs his belt and leaves.  MVP wins by count-out (7:44 shown).  Okay match.  The announcers flip flop on whether or not it was a title match.  It wasn’t announced as such, so just assume the announcers are idiots.

Rosa Mendez is jumping rope backstage.  The Dudebusters take her jump rope and put it in a box that they hand off to Hornswoggle, who is loading a truck.  See, despite the fact that they’re mostly in a different venue every week, they only have to move anything when the show is going to be airing on a different channel.  And Hornswoggle and The Dudebusters have been demoted to movers.  Vickie Guerrero comes in looking for Kaitlyn.  They lock her in the moving truck.  Heh.

The Undertaker continues to sit in his dark stairwell.  Someone opens a door.  Taker feels something, stands up, and rolls his eyes back.

World Heavyweight Champion Kane comes out.  He cuts a promo against a backdrop of red lighting and weird music.  He challenges Undertaker to a Hell In A Cell Match at the PPV.  The GONG sounds.  Druids come out with a casket.  Kane opens the casket.  PAUL BEARER IS IN THE CASKET!  HE HAS THE URN!  The lights go out and come back on to reveal The Undertaker in the ring.  Taker kicks Kane’s ass.  THE URN GAVE UNDERTAKER HIS POWERS BACK!  Taker goes for the chokeslam, but Kane bails and runs away.  Taker does the old school “reach for the urn” pose.  Kane screams “No!” as the show ends.

Fun show this week.
