WWE Friday Night Smackdown! 1/30/09 (Repost)

WWE open, then a highlight package of the Jeff Hardy/Edge match from the Royal Rumble when Matt Hardy turned on his brother and cost him the WWE Championship.

We are in Indianapolis, Indiana, as the ring announcer introduces Matt Hardy.  Matt comes out with a chair and no music.  Matt explains that he’s tired of sharing the spotlight with Jeff.  He says that nobody can prove he was responsible for Jeff’s various accidents as of late.  He spend his whole life taking care of Jeff, but he’s done with that.  He says he spent years trying to get the fans to like him, but they only cared about Jeff.  From now on, Matt only cares about himself.  Matt no longer considers Jeff his partner or his brother.

Instant commercial, then R-Truth makes his way to the ring as Jim Ross finally speaks.  He and Tazz are on commentary.

R-Truth vs. The Brian Kendrick (w/ Ezekiel Jackson).  Zeke stares down R-Truth, then the referee ejects him.  Kendrick cheap shots R-Truth as soon as the bell rings and goes on the offensive.  R-Truth makes a comeback and hits a scissors kick for the win at 2:14.

Tonight: Edge!

WrestleMania hype video, emphasizing WrestleMania I.

Chavo Guerrero vs. Montel Vontavious Porter.  MVP’s losing streak is over, as he won a match last week (I think).  Chavo gets in some shots, then MVP hits an armdrag and works Chavo’s arm a bit.  Chavo comes back with a rolling kick for a 2 count.  MVP beats on Chavo, then Chavo reciprocates in kind.  Chavo hits two amigos, but MVP counters the third.  Chavo goes upstairs, but MVP follows him up and goes for a superplex.  Chavo pushes him off and goes for a frog splash, but MVP moves.  MVP hits a Shining Yakuza kick (Drive By) for the win at 5:11.

Tazz steps in the ring and asks MVP how it feels to be back on a winning streak.  MVP says he’s back, and he wants the United States title back.

Umaga hype video.  He returns NEXT!

No Way Out has Elimination Chamber Matches!  Tonight, Undertaker vs. Mark Henry and Triple H vs. Great Khali vs. Vladimir Kozlov in Qualifying matches!

Umaga makes his way to the ring.  He has new music.  Commercial!

Umaga vs. Jimmy Wang Yang.  Yang tries to use his speed to get the advantage, but Umaga demolishes him.  Samoan Spike gets the win at 1:43.

Undertaker vs. Mark Henry is next!

John Morrison says please, don’t try this at home.

Vladimir Kozlov is shown jumping rope and lifting weights.

Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match: The Undertaker vs. Mark Henry (w/ Tony Atlas).  They grapple, then Undertaker runs into Henry and is knocked down.  They grapple again and Henry pushes Undertaker into the corner.  They break, then Undertaker fires away with punches.  Taker goes for Old School, but Henry catches him in a bearhug, then beats on him in the corner.  Henry hits a body slam and an elbow drop for a two count.  Taker fights back with more punches.  Taker goes for the chokeslam on Henry, but Atlas distracts him.  Henry sends Taker to the outside.  Taker nails Atlas, then heads back into the ring and hits the chokeslam.  Taker locks in the Gogoplata (whatever the hell it’s being called by WWE) for the submission victory at 5:25.

Next: Edge!

Chris Jericho/Mickey Rourke hype.  I thought Rourke pulled out of doing WrestleMania.

Smackdown GM Vickie Guerrero introduces the new WWE Champion, Edge.  He talks about the fans not believing him when he said he wasn’t behind Jeff’s accidents.  He then takes it old school with a five second pose, which his him making out with Vickie while holding up the championship belt.  Big Show’s music hits as he comes down to crash the party.  Show hugs Vickie, then she and Edge leave.

WrestleMania 21 video.

Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match: The Big Show vs. Festus (w/ Jesse).  Festus, as always, gets angry when the bell rings.  He attacks Show, but promptly gets DDT’d.  Festus hits a sort of tornado DDT for a near fall.  Show hits the Alley-Oop that I haven’t seen him do in years.  Show hits the KO punch and gets the pin at 2:39.  Show chokeslams Jesse for good measure after the match.

Eve Torres starts to hype John Cena’s new movie, but Michelle McCool interrupts and berates her.  Eve slaps Michelle, who smiles.

Triple H vs. Khali vs. Kozlov, next!

From The Vault: Clip of the Chavo vs. Mysterio match from No Way Out 2004.  This must be a UK exclusive thing they do.  They show a big chunk of the match.  Chavo wins the Cruiserweight Championship with help from his father, Chavo Guerrero Sr.

Raw Rebound: Orton has explossive diahrea or something, and it made him kick Vince in the head.  Orton will sue Stephanie and the company if he’s fired, so she has Shane beat up Orton and a bunch of other people.  See: horrible ending from Raw.  Finally, it’s main event time.

Triple Threat Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match: Triple H vs. Great Khali (w/ Ranjin Singh) vs. Vladimir Kozlov.  Triple H fights Kozlov, then Khali.  Kozlov nails Khali.  Khali sends Kozlov out of the ring as we go to commercial.  The Miz says please, don’t try this at home.  Triple H and Khali brawl at ringside.  Triple H heads back into the ring to go at it with Kozlov.  Triple H takes a beating, then hits a DDT.  Kozlov hits a fall away slam for a near fall.  Triple H comes back and hits the spinebuster.  Khali lumbers back in and gets Triple H in the head grip.  Kozlov headbutts Khali.  Triple H low bridges Kozlov and sends him out of the ring.  Triple H hits a sloppy Pedigree on Khali for the win at 6:03+ commercials.  Triple H celebrates.  Fin.
