WWE open, New Years Eve Smackdown hype, Smackdown open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Josh Matthews, Michael Cole, and Matt Striker are the announcers.  Tonight, Edge & Rey Mysterio vs. Kane & Alberto Del Rio!  Tony Chimel is the ring announcer.

WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero come out.  Vickie makes horrible screeching noises like a pterodactyl.  They show John Cena trying to give Vickie the Attitude Adjustment last week.  She screeches some more.  Kofi Kingston comes out and tells Vickie to be quiet because everyone gets nauseous from listening to her.  Thank you, Kofi!  They show a photo of Vickie interfering at the PPV.  Jack Swagger comes out.  He’s also pissed off at the bullshit finish of the PPV match.  Ziggler says the only important thing is that he’s still champion.  Kofi says he doesn’t deserve it.  He wants a rematch.  So does Swagger.  Ziggler makes some excuse about Teddy Long’s New Years party.  He takes a swing at Kofi.  A three-way brawl erupts.  Kofi wins.  Teddy Long comes out and books a triple threat rematch for the title TONIGHT!

WWE.com plug.

The Big Show vs. “Dashing” Cody Rhodes.  Show beats up Rhodes and throws him around.  Show hits the loud chop, then does the stink face.  Rhodes bails and checks his jacket mirror.  Show palms his head and pulls him back into the ring.  Rhodes tries to rally, but continues being tossed about.  Rhodes avoids Show in the corner and hits the Beautiful Disaster.  Rhodes puts the boots to Show.  Show hits a shoulder block and goes the KO punch.  Rhodes bails and leaves.  Show wins by count-out in 2:51.  Fine.

Teddy Long’s New Years Party!  Guests include Kelly Kelly, Beth Phoenix, JTG, Hornswoggle, Rosa Mendez, Curt Hawkins, Drew McIntyre, Natalya, and what’s her face that just won divas NXT.  Kaitlyn, I think.  Rosa feeds Hornswoggle cheese.  Conor O’Brian from NXT sniffs the cheese.  His pro Alberto Del Rio (w/ Ricardo Rodriguez) tells him to cool it.  Del Rio hits on Rosa.  Hornswoggle takes offense.  Teddy asks people to make New Years Resolutions.  McIntyre says he’ll become a champion and a better person.  A drunk Chavo Guerrero Jr. insults everyone.  Teddy tells him he’s drinking non-alcoholic champagne.  Everyone glares at Chavo.

WWE bullshit fact of the night.

Drew McIntyre vs. Trent Barreta. They lock up.  Barrett throws McIntyre into the corner.  They lock up again.  McIntyre grabs a side headlock and releases it because he’s trying to be nice.  That’s just stupid.  McIntyre gets his head on straight and gets a headlock takedown.  Barreta bridges out and gets a headlock takedown of his own.  McIntyre backs Barreta into the corner and beats on him.  Barreta tries a rana, but McIntyre powerbombs him into the corner.  McIntyre beats up Barreta some more.  Barreta rallies and hits an enzuigiri for 2.  Barreta hits a springboard dropkick that sends McIntyre to the floor.  Barreta goes for a Space Flying Tiger Drop, but McIntyre avoids it!  Barreta looks dead.  The referee stops it and awards the win to McIntyre in 4:30.  Cool little match and a nifty ending.  McIntyre gives Barreta the Future Shock just to be a dick.  So much for being a better person!

Tonight, Kane & Del Rio vs. Edge & Mysterio!  Also, Ziggler vs. Kofi vs. Swagger!

Back at the party, Chavo cries to the Swagger Soaring Eagle.  They hug.  Teddy shakes his head at them, then tries to make his New Years Revolution.  Michelle McCool and Layla come in to be obnoxious.  They talk shit about Natalya and Beth, who argue with them.  Teddy books them in a tag match tonight, then talks to the eagle.

Tonight, IC title triple threat match!

World Heavyweight Champion Edge comes out.  The tag match is NEXT!

World Heavyweight Champion Edge & Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Kane & Alberto Del Rio.  Del Rio is introduced by Ricardo Rodriguez, of course.  Del Rio and Mysterio tear into each other briefly, then Edge tags in and beats up Del Rio.  Edge clotheslines Del Rio to the floor.  Kane comes in and sent outside by Mysterio.  Edge gives Mysterio a life to take their opponents out with a dive.  Insta-commercials.  Kane and Del Rio get the heat on Edge.  Mysterio gets the tag and runs wild.  Mysterio goes for a springboard cross body, but Kane catches him with a punch in midair.  Kane sends Mysterio outside to be beaten up by Del Rio.  Kane decides he wants in on the fun and throws Mysterio into the barricade.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  Del Rio tags in and keeps the heat going on his enemy.  Mysterio continues playing face in peril for a bit, then makes the hot tag.  Edge runs wild on Del Rio.  Edge hits the Edgecution and goes for the spear.  That sequence of moves is completely back asswards.  Kane tries to chokeslam Edge, but fails.  Mysterio low bridges Kane out of the ring.  Edge gives Kane a baseball slide dropkick.  Mysterio gives Del Rio the 619.  Edge follows with the spear for the pin (9:19 shown).  Fine little match.

Back at the party, Chavo tries to impress Kaitlyn by sucking helium out of a balloon and talking funny, but there’s no helium.  Chris Masters and Hornswoggle wiggle their boobs at each other.  Big Show tells Kelly Kelly to be careful with Drew McIntyre.  Cody Rhodes comes in and argues with Show.  Teddy tells them to chill.  Teddy books Del Rio vs. Mysterio in a 2/3 Falls Match and Kane vs. Edge for the World Championship in a Last Man Standing Match for next week.

Tonight, IC Title triple threat match!

Michelle McCool & Layla vs. WWE Divas Champion Natalya & Beth Phoenix.  Beth and Natalya take turns beating up McCool.  McCool cuts off Natalya.  Insta-commercials.  Layla works over Natalya.  Beth tags in and is immediately cut off by McCool.  They get the heat on Beth.  Natalya gets the hot tag and runs wild.  Natalya goes for the Sharpshooter on Layla, but is countered.  She does it a different way and locks it in.  McCool kicks Natalya in the face and drags Layla over to tag her.  Natalya back body drops McCool and tags in Beth.  Beth hits the Glam Slam for the pin (6:39 shown).  All right match.

Teddy Long rejoices that the party didn’t break out into a fight.  Chavo calls the party lame.  Big Show pour punch on him.  Tyler Reks has also joined the party.  Chavo rams Hornswoggle’s face into the cake.  A food fight breaks out.  Teddy jinxed it.

WWE bullshit fact of the night.

Raw Rebound.

The main event is NEXT!

Triple Threat Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship: Dolph Ziggler (c) (w/ Vickie Guerrero) vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Jack Swagger.  Swagger and Ziggler double team Kofi for the first several minutes.  Kofi makes his comeback, monkey flips Swagger, and gives Ziggler the corner punches.  Kofi sends both opponents outside and takes them both out with a tope suicida.  Insta-commercials.  Kofi cranks on Swagger’s arm.  Kofi goes for the Boom Drop, but Ziggler pulls him out of the ring and drops him.  Swagger tries to pull Ziggler into the ring, but Ziggler pulls his head across the top rope and hits the Fameasser for 2.  Swagger goes to the floor.  Ziggler brings Kofi back in and hits a neckbreaker for 2.  Ziggler hits an elbow drop for 2.  Ziggler keeps the heat on Kofi.  Swagger tries to come back in, but Ziggler cuts him off and keeps working on Kofi.  Kofi avoids Ziggler in the corner and starts firing back.  Matthews still doesn’t know what a Superman punch is.  Kofi hits the Boom Drop and goes for the Trouble In Paradise.  Swagger intervenes and Germans him right into Ziggler.  Swagger covers Ziggler for 2, then Kofi for the same.  Swagger sets up Kofi for a superplex.  Kofi fights him off.  Ziggler jumps up and tries to do the deed.  Swagger powerbombs Ziggler out of the corner.  Kofi hits Swagger with a diving cross body for 2.  Swagger counters the S.O.S. and takes on Kofi’s knee.  Kofi counters the ankle lock.  Swagger ducks the Trouble In Paradise.  Swagger locks in the ankle lock.  Ziggler gives Swagger the Zig Zag.  Kofi saves!  Kofi and Swagger brawl.  Kofi catches Swagger with a DDT and covers.  Vickie puts Swagger’s foot on the bottom rope.  Swagger goes for the Doctor Bomb.  Kofi counters and hits the Trouble In Paradise.  Ziggler schoolboys Kofi and grabs a handful of tights for the pin (13:53 shown).  Good match.

All right show to end 2010 for WWE.
