WWE Friday Night Smackdown! 2/4/11

WWE open, Smackdown open, pyro and ballyhoo.  We are TAPED from Long Island.  Tonight, Royal Rumble Winner Alberto Del Rio will be IN THE HOUSE!  There’s a WrestleMania pinata above the ring.

Booker T comes out.  Ring announcer Tony Chimel introduces him as the newest member of the Smackdown announce team.  Booker goes into the ring for a Spinaroonie, then joins Michael Cole and Josh Matthews at the commentary table.

Vickie Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler come out.  Vickie screeches horrible sounds.  There’s a stupid mixed tag match for the World title tonight.  Vickie screechingly insists that Kelly Kelly come out, so she does.  Vickie is mad because Kelly circumventing Vickie’s interference at the Rumble kept them from fucking Edge out of the title.  Kelly bitches at Vickie for going through her purse or some shit.  They argue.  Ziggler talks shit to Kelly and tells her to leave.  Kelly slaps him, then shoves Vickie.  LayCool hit the ring and bully Kelly.  World Heavyweight Champion Edge runs them off and decks Ziggler.

WWE bullshit fact of the night.

Tonight, Edge & Kelly Kelly vs. Dolph Ziggler & LayCool for the World Heavyweight Championship.

Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov come out for a tag match.  They show the aftermath of their tag match on Raw, where Randy Orton RKO’d Michael McGillicutty and punted Husky Harris to death while the rest of the New Nexus looked on.

Non-Title: WWE Tag Team Champions Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov (w/ Tamina) vs. Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater of The Corre.  Kozlov schools Gabriel to start.  Slater tags in and gets hammered as well.  Santino tags in and schools Slater some more.  Slater counters a reverse cradle and punches Santino in the face.  Cover gets 0.  Slater pounds on Santino.  Kozlov tags in and smashes Slater.  Kozlov hits a powerslam.  Gabriel slaves and throws Santino out of the ring.  Kozlov takes out Gabriel.  Slater takes out Kozlov’s leg, then hits Kozlov with a reverse DDT.  Gabriel tags in and hits the 450 splash for the pin in 3:06.  It was fine.

There’s still the pinata.

Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match: WWE Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston vs. Drew McIntyre.  They lock up.  Kofi gets a cradle for 2.  McIntyre punches Kofi in the face and gets a cradle for 2.  McIntyre stomps Kofi in the face.  McIntyre hits a slam for 2.  Kofi jumps around a bunch and hits an elbow smash for 1.  Kofi works McIntyre’s arm.  Kofi hits the pendulum kick.  McIntyre avoids the diving cross body.  Kofi clotheslines McIntyre to the floor and follows him out.  McIntyre sends Kofi into the steps.  Insta-commercials.  McIntyre hits an elbow smash for 2.  McIntyre applies a grounded abdominal stretch.  McIntyre hits a gut buster for 2.  McIntyre kicks Kofi in the injured ribs for 2.  McIntyre hits a dropkick for 2.  Kofi awesomely ducks a short lariat and hits a DDT for 2.  Kofi lands some strikes and stomps McIntyre in the corner.  Kofi hits the Boom Drop and goes for the Trouble In Paradise.  McIntyre avoids it and tries to bail.  Ricardo Rodriguez appears on the Tron and introduces Alberto Del Rio, who just smiles and winks.  This distracts Kofi.  McIntyre kicks his leg and hits the Future Shock for the pin (9:30 shown).  Good little match.

Tonight, a stupid mixed tag match for the World Championship!  Vince Russo would be proud.

Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match: Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Jack Swagger.  Mysterio kicks Swagger’s legs and gets a sunset flip for 2.  Mysterio low bridges Swagger out of the ring.  Insta-commercials.  Mysterio kicks Swagger in the face and tries to go up top.  Swagger catches him and twice a wheelbarrow thing, but Mysterio turns it into a bulldog for 2.  Mysterio gets a cross body for 2.  Mysterio goes for the 619, but Swagger bails.  Mysterio goes for an Asai moonsault, but Swagger trips him in the ropes and works on his ankle.  Swagger rams Mysterio’s ankle into the post.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  Outside again, Swagger rams Mysterio into the announce table.  Back inside, Swagger hits the springboard Vader Bomb for 2.  Swagger goes back to the leg work.  Mysterio kicks at his legs.  Swagger pounds on his face.  Cover gets 2.  Mysterio avoids a Vader Bomb and hits a jumping tornado DDT for 2.  Mysterio goes for the 619, but Swagger catches his legs and locks in the ankle lock.  Mysterio counters out and sends Swagger into the corner.  Mysterio kicks Swagger in the face and bridges back for the pin (7:35 shown).  Fine match.

They show Alberto Del Rio’s attack on Edge from Raw.

The WrestleMania pinata is TONIGHT!

Edge and Kelly Kelly chat backstage.  Edge thinks Kelly is going to cost him the title.  That pisses her off.

Elimination Chamber hype.

Hornswoggle and Rosa Mendez come out and throw stuff to the crowd.  Ricardo Rodriguez introduces Alberto Del Rio.  I’ve been learning Spanish and I actually understand some of what he says.  Del Rio cuts a promo.  He tells Hornswoggle the pinata is for him.  They blindfold him, give him a stick, and spin him around.  Hornswoggle accidentally hits Del Rio in the balls with the stick.  Del Rio boots Hornswoggle in the face.  He pounds on Hornswoggle.  Kofi Kingston makes the save and clotheslines Del Rio out of the ring.  Del Rio sneaks back in and attacks Kofi, canes him, and locks in the cross armbreaker.  Referees come out to break it up.

Tonight, stupid mixed tag match for the title!

Booker T announces that he’ll be a coach on the new Tough Enough.

Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match: Chavo Guerrero Jr. vs. Kane.  Chavo tries.  He manages to drop toe hold Kane into the top turnbuckle.  He goes up top.  Kane tries to chokeslam him off the top rope.  Chavo drops down and pulls Kane’s arm over the top rope.  Chavo hits the frog splash, but Kane catches him by the throat and hits the chokeslam for the pin in 1:03.  Chavo lasted longer than I expected.  Kane joins Mysterio, McIntyre, Ziggler, and Edge in the Chamber.  There’s one more qualifying match!

Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match: The Big Show vs. Wade Barrett (w/ Ezekiel Jackson, Justin Gabriel, & Heath Slater).  Barrett hides in the ropes.  Show kicks his ass anyway.  Barrett tries to take out Show’s leg.  Show whips Barrett into the ref.  Corre interferes.  Jackson clotheslines Show to death.  Barrett covers for 2.  Barrett hits a DDT for the pin in 1:57.  Wow, wasn’t expecting that one.  Show attacks the Corre after the match, but is overcome by numbers.  Jackson slams Show again.  He takes the mic and says some weird psuedo-Biblical stuff.

Title match is NEXT!

Entrances and introductions for the main event.  Vickie decrees that Edge will be stripped of the title if he uses the spear “in any form.”

Handicap Match for the World Heavyweight Championship: Edge (c) & Kelly Kelly vs. Dolph Ziggler, Michelle McCool, & Layla (w/ Vickie Guerrero).  Ziggler beats up Edge.  Edge beats up Ziggler.  He wants to go for the spear, but realizes he can’t.  Ziggler bails and eats a baseball slide dropkick.  McCool and Kelly tag in.  Insta-commercials.  McCool beats up Kelly.  Kelly beats up McCool and rams her face into the floor on the outside.  She drops Layla too.  McCool gets Kelly into a powerbomb position and spins her head into the barricade.  LayCool work over Kelly.  Kelly rallies and hits a facebuster on Layla.  Edge gets the tag, but Ziggler distracts the referee to prevent him from seeing it.  Edge kicks Ziggler’s ass.  McCool accidentally kicks Layla in the head.  Kelly knocks McCool out of the ring, then spears Layla for the pin (6:51 shown).  I kind of liked the finish.  Vickie gets in the ring and fires Kelly.  Kelly cries.  Vickie tells Edge he’ll defend the title against Ziggler again next week, with Vickie as the referee.  Ziggler hits Edge with the Zig Zag.

Fun show.
