WWE Friday Night Smackdown! 10/1/10

WWE open, new Smackdown open.  The song is awful.  Todd Grisham and Matt Striker are the announcers LIVE from Oklahoma City.  Tony Chimel is the ring announcer.

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: Dolph Ziggler (c) (w/ Vickie Guerrero) vs. Montel Vontavious Porter.  They lock up and roll around.  MVP backs Ziggler into the corner.  Ziggler cheap shots MVP behind the referee’s back and hits a nice fireman carry takeover for 2.  Ziggler hits some elbow drops for 2.  Ziggler goes for the sleeper hold, but MVP escapes.  MVP hits rolling Germans and a sliding Yakuza kick for 2.  MVP hits a belly to belly throw that sends Ziggler out of the ring. Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, David Otunga, & Michael Tarver of The Nexus come out and attack Ziggler to cause the DQ in 1:39.  They take him, then surround MVP in the ring.  MVP starts sluggin’, but gets beaten down.  David Otunga hits his spinebuster.  Justin Gabriel hits the 450 splash.  The Big Show comes out to make the save, but is overcome by superior numbers.  John Cena comes out to make the save and gets beaten down too.  Cena and Show probably would have had a better chance if they would have come out together.  Show comes back with a steel chair, whacks Slater in the back, and sends The Nexus running.  Wade Barrett appears on the screen.  He has a blank faced Teddy Long with him.  He says he’s friends with the President of SyFy, so he can “suggest” matches.  Long announces Big Show vs. The Nexus and Cena vs. Kane for tonight.

Michael Cole has joined Grisham and Striker for commentary.  Ugh.

Tonight, Undertaker vs. CM Punk!

co-Unified WWE Divas Champions Michelle McCool & Layla, Maryse, & Alicia Fox vs. Natalya, Kelly Kelly, & The Bella Twins.  Kelly claps her hands.  Fox kicks her in the stomach.  They do a double clothesline.  Natalya and Maryse tag in.  Natalya hits her with some suplex and a Michinoku Driver II(!) for 2.  Natalya looks awesome here.  She goes for the Sharpshooter, but McCool kicks her in the head.  Bellas land a double dropkick on McCool.  Clusterfuck ensues.  Hornswoggle tries to pull Layla under the ring, then chases her around.  McCool kicks Hornswoggle in the chest.  LayCool hug.  Natalya hits them with a baseball slide dropkick.  Maryse goes for the DDT on Natalya, but Natalya counters and locks in the Sharpshooter for the submission win in 2:35.  Stupid shit, but at least Natalya looked awesome.

Up next, Jack Swagger’s homecoming celebration!

WWE.com plug.  Striker says “for the first time ever, a TV program is moving to the internet.”  Heat and Velocity would say hello if they hadn’t died exactly that way years ago.

Jack Swagger comes out to “Boomer Sooner,” wearing a cape and accompanied by an eagle mascot.  All of his crap is in the ring.  I feel like I’ve seen this segment a hundred times.  He bitches about not getting a parade and a blowjob or whatever people who matter get when they return to their home state.  He gets heat by saying he moved to Texas.  He crowns himself King of Oklahoma.  Edge comes out.  He says he’s on a mission to rid WWE of everything stupid.  He’s my new favorite wrestler.  He talks about all of Swagger’s stupidity.  Swagger hides behind the eagle.  Edge punches the eagle on the beak.  This greatly upsets Swagger.  Edge spears the eagle.

Tonight, Cena vs. Kane in a Lumberjack Match with Nexus as lumberjacks!

Wade Barrett gives The Nexus a pep talk backstage.  They huddle up to talk strategy.

“Dashing” Cody Rhodes gives grooming tips.

Handicap Match: The Nexus vs. The Big Show.  All 5 Nexus guys attack Show.  Show fights back and dumps Slater and Gabriel out of the ring.  They grab his legs while the other 3 beat on him in the corner.  They lock Big Show in a 5-way submission hold (Otunga and Gabriel with cross armbreakers, Tarver and Slater with ankle locks, and Barrett with a headscissors).  The referee stops it and gives Nexus the win in 1:34.  This was entertaining for what it was.  Gabriel hits Show with 2 450 splashes after the match.

Tonight, Rey Mysterio returns!

Moments ago, ^^ happened.  During the commercials, Big Show walked to the back holding his ribs.

Oklahoma City!

Undertaker/Kane video.

CM Punk comes out.  He’ll face The Undertaker NEXT!

Tonight, Cena vs. Kane!

CM Punk vs. The Undertaker (w/ Paul Bearer).  Punk ducks Taker’s big fist and gets in a flurry early.  Taker grabs him and throws him out of the ring.  Because he has his powers back.  Taker throws Punk into the barricade, then throws him back inside.  Taker hits the APRON LEG DROP~!  I always mark for that move.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  Taker hits Old School.  Punk avoids Taker in the corner, then puts the boots to him.  Punk hits the running knee to the corner followed by the bulldog headlock.  Taker sits up and makes his comeback.  Taker hits Snake Eyes and the big boot, then a leg drop for 2.  Taker hits the chokeslam and the Tombsone Piledriver for the pin in 4:20.  Fun little match.  I’ve hated this Undertaker angle from the start, but this and the stuff last week were awesome.  In a good TV way if not a good wrestling way.

Rey Mysterio returns NEXT!

Tony Chimel introduces Ricardo Rodriguez, who introduces Alberto Del Rio.  Del Rio comes out in his suit.  They show him injuring Christian last week.  He talks.  He introduces Rey Mysterio.  Rodriguez brings out a chihuahua in a mask.  He apologizes to the dog and kisses it.  He says he was just kidding, that Mysterio would be there tonight.  Rey Mysterio Jr. does in fact come out and kick Del Rio’s ass.  Rodriguez grabs Mysterio’s leg to allow Del Rio to escape.  Mysterui beats up Rodriguez and gives him the 619.

WWE Champion Randy Orton comes out!  They show him punting Chris Jericho out of WWE on Raw this past Monday.  WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Drew McIntyre come out.  They show Sheamus destroying Great Khali on Raw.  Video clip is unrelated, eh?

Non-Title: WWE Champion Randy Orton vs. WWE Tag Team Champion “Dashing” Cody Rhodes (w/ WWE Tag Team Champion Drew McIntyre).  Legacy EXPLODES!  Again!  Orton beats up Rhodes, who tries to avoid getting hit int he face.  Rhodes drops Orton with a punch, then misses a knee drop.  Orton lands a European uppercut.  Rhodes rolls to the apron.  Orton goes for the DDT OF MURDER, but Rhodes counters.  Orton his the powerslam.  Rhodes bails.  Orton follows.  McIntyre tries to sneak up on Orton.  Orton turns to him, but Rhodes jumps him from behind.  Back inside, Rhodes his a knee drop for 2.  Rhodes stomps Orton in the corner, then locks him in a neck & shoulder lock.  Orton avoids the springboard kick and hits the 3.0, then the RKO for the pin in 2:23.  It was fine while it lasted.  McIntyre tries to give Orton the Future Shock, but Orton counters and drops him with an RKO as well.  Nice burial of the tag champs.  Sheamus appears and attacks Orton.  He has a red glove thingy now because he’s the red hand of Ireland.  Sheamus drops Orton with the pump kick.

Tonight, Cena vs. Kane!

WWE charity work & stuff video package.

Oklahoma City!

World Heavyweight Champion Kane comes out.  The main event is NEXT!

Non-Title Lumberjack Match: World Heavyweight Champion Kane vs. John Cena.  Kane beats up Cena for a while to start and gets a couple of near falls.  Kane throws Cena out of the ring to get beaten up by Nexus.  They have their way with him and throw him back in.  Insta-commercials.  Kane has Cena in a scissored rear chin lock.  Cena fights out, but Kane drops him with a punch.  Kane goes up top.  Cena ducks the diving lariat and makes his comeback.  Cena goes for the Attitude Adjustment.  Kane escapes and goes for the chokeslam.  Cena counters and sends Kane outside.  Nexus get on the apron.  Cena knocks Gabriel into Kane.  Kane drops Gabriel and Barrett.  Cena fights off the other 3 and runs away.  The lights go out.  Undertaker appears in the ring and beats up Kane.  The match is a no-contest (about 5 minutes shown).  They brawl in the crowd and back to ringside.  In the ring, Kane catches Taker with a big boot.  Taker sits up.  Paul Bearer is in there now too.  Kane goozles Undertaker.  Bearer holds up the urn, which gives Uncertaker the power to chokeslam Kane.  Taker signals for the Tombstone, but Kane runs away.  Undertaker and Bearer pose.

Fun TV show with good hype for the PPV.  Too bad they didn’t hype the PPV on Raw, which people actually watch.
