WWE open, Night of Champions open, Paper Jamz presents Night of Champions!  Pyro and ballyhoo.  Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, and Matt Striker are the announcers LIVE from Chicago!  Well, Rosemont anyway.  Justin Roberts and Tony Chimel are the ring announcers.

Tony Chimel starts to introduce the first match, but Vickie Guerrero and Kaitlyn come out because at least 2 shows per week must begin with Vickie being obnoxious.  She introduces her man, the Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler.

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: Dolph Ziggler (c) (w/ Vickie Guerrero & Kaitlyn) vs. Kofi Kingston.  Ziggler can lose the title by count-out or DQ.  They lock up.  Crowd is very pro-Kofi.  Kofi gets a takedown.  Ziggler responds in kind.  Kofi goes for the Trouble In Paradise, but Ziggler falls on his ass to avoid it.  Kofi clotheslines Ziggler out of the ring.  Kaitlyn checks on Ziggler, which draws the ire of Vickie.  Vickie sends Kaitlyn to the back.  Ziggler beats the count back into the ring and argues with the referee.  Kofi schoolboys him for 2.  Kofi lands some chops and a dropkick.  Ziggler avoids the pounce in the corner that leads to Kofi’s corner punches.  Ziggler covers for 2.  Ziggler hits a neckbreaker for 2.  Ziggler applies a rear chin lock.  Kofi fights out and hits a flying forearm.  Ziggler boots Kofi in the face for 2.  Ziggler hits an elbow drop for 2.  Ziggler applies a rear chin lock with a body scissors.  Ziggler hits something for 2, then the Perfect neck snap and a prawn hold for 2 more.  Lawler brings up Dolph’s old gimmick of introducing himself to every one.  Ziggler hits the Fameasser for 2.  Ziggler keeps the heat on Kofi.  Elbow drop to the back of the head gets 2 for Ziggler.  Kofi fights out of another rear chin lock and pummels Ziggler with punches.  The referee breaks it up.  Ziggler avoids Kofi in the corner.  Kofi hits the rebound kick and a diving cross body for 2.  Ziggler took that one like a man.  Kofi gets his offense rolling.  They counter each other, then Kofi hits a Thesz press and some mounted punches.  Kofi hits the Boom Drop and signals for the Trouble In Paradise.  Ziggler ducks it and goes for the sleeper, but Kofi counts out.  Kofi hits the S.O.S., but Ziggler gets to the ropes to save his title.  Ziggler bails.  Kofi hits him with a dive off the apron and pounds on him.  Kofi rolls Ziggler back into the ring for 2.  Kofi goes for the S.O.S. again, but Ziggler counters and locks in the sleeper hold.  Kofi gets to his feet and powers out of the sleeper, then locks it on Dolph!  Dolph hits the ropes to escape.  Vickie thinks about slapping Kofi, but Dolph tells her not to, because he’ll lose the title by DQ.  Kofi goes for the Trouble In Paradise.  Dolph avoids it and hits the Zig Zag for the pin in 12:42.  Good match.  Dolph and Vickie celebrate.

The Bella Twins, Kelly Kelly, Eve Torres, Alicia Fox, Natalya, Jillian Hall, Layla, Tamina, Rosa Mendez, Gail Kim, and Maryse come out to be Lumberjills.

Lumberjill Match to Unify the WWE Women’s Championship and the WWE Divas Championship: WWE Women’s Champion Michelle McCool vs. WWE Divas Champion Melina.  McCool is announced as THE Women’s Champion, so I guess having her name drawn out of a hat makes her the sole champion.  McCool tries to attack Melina during her entrance, but fails.  They lock up and roll out of the ring.  McCool slaps Rosa, then bails back into the ring.  Melina does a crappy headscissors and some kicks.  Melina beats up McCool.  This is awful.  Melina takes a spill to the outside when McCool pulls her hair while Melina was doing some shit on the top rope.  McCool hits a flip neckbreaker for 2.  McCool applies a head scissors.  McCool goes for the Styles Clash, but Melina counters into a facebuster.  McCool hits a belly to belly suplex for 2.  McCool tries to stomp Natalya’s hand, so Natalya tries to pull her out of the ring.  Natayla distracts the referee so he doesn’t see Melina schoolgirl McCool for 2.  McCool goes outside and gets beaten up by the lumberjills.  Back inside, Melina hits a flapjack and a kick, then dropkicks McCool into the ropes and hits a running knee.  She screams.  Ugh.  Melina ducks a kick, but McCool shoves her down anyway.  McCool beats up Melina in the corner and goes for a fucking Frankensteiner or something and they both fall out of the ring.  The lumberjills stand around looking clueless, then they all brawl.  Layla attacks Melina in the ring, but Melina tosses her out.  McCool sneaks in and hits Melina with a big boot for the pin in 6:32.  This was awful, and I don’t care about either of these titles.  LayCool celebrate.  I hate them.

Please, Don’t Try This At Home!

Chicago!

Todd Grisham interviews Wade Barrett, who of course claims he’ll become WWE Champion tonight.

Kane/Undertaker video package.

No Holds Barred Match for the World Heavyweight Championship: Kane (c) vs. The Undertaker.  Taker meets Kane in the aisle and they brawl to start the match.  Taker throws Kane off the stage into one of the pillars that try to make the stage look like a Roman coliseum.  This seems to energize Kane, as he comes back and beats up Taker.  Taker responds by choking Kane.  They brawl some more.  Finally at ringside, Kane whips Taker into the steps.  Kane beats up Taker at ringside some more and hits him in the gut with the belt.  They finally get in the ring and Kane hits the diving lariat.  Kane hits a leg drop for 2.  Kane keeps beating up Taker.  They go outside again.  Kane throws the cover of the announce table at Taker.  Taker manages to reverse a whip from Kane, sending him into the steps.  Taker hits the APRON LEG DROP!  Taker boots Kane over the barricade into the timekeeper’s area, then jumps over the barricade to wipe Kane out.  Kane hits Taker in the ribs with a chair.  They brawl in the crowd and back to the ring.  Kane wails on Taker for a long time.  Taker finally lands a punch to a big pop.  They trade punches in the middle of the ring.  Taker ducks a clothesline from Kane and lands his flying clothesline.  Taker hits a splash in the corner and lands some punches.  Taker hits Snake Eyes and the running big boot, then a leg drop for 2.  Taker hits the chokeslam and goes for the Tombstone.  Kane reverses it and Tombstones Undertaker for the pin in 18:29.  I was dreading this match, but it turned out to be a fun brawl.  Taker slowly walks to the back all injured.

Up next is the RETURN OF TAG TEAM TURMOIL!

Tag Team Turmoil Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship: Champions The Hart Dynasty (w/ Natalya) and Jimmy & Jey Uso (w/ Tamina) are the first two teams.  Kidd starts with one of the Usos.  I can’t tell them apart anymore.  Kidd shines, then gets double teamed by the Usos.  Smith tags in and runs wild.  Smith goes for the Sharpshooter, but the other Uso pulls his partner to safety.  Kidd hits them both with an Asai moonsault.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  Kidd goes for the Sharpshooter.  The other Uso comes in.  The women fight.  Jimmy kicks Kidd in the head and Jey pins him in 2:10.  Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov are the next team.  Santino runs wild on one of the Usos and hits a falling headbutt.  Other Uso saves.  Kozlov takes him out.  Santino goes for the Cobra.  Tamina gets on the apron to distract him.  Jey hits Santino with a Samoan Drop for the pin in 3:15.  The next team is Mark Henry & Evan Bourne!  Bourne runs wild on the Uso, but gets cut off.  Bourne avoids a corner splash and tags in Henry.  Henry runs wild.  The other Uso tries to attack Henry from the apron and gets knocked off.  Henry hits Jimmy with the World’s Strongest Slam, then tags in Bourne.  Bourne hits the Shooting Star press for the pin in 5:10.  The final team is Cody Rhodes & Drew McIntyre.  McIntyre and Rhodes take turns beating up Bourne.  Bourne fights back, but McIntyre drops him with a short lariat for 2.  McIntyre cranks on Bourne’s arm.  Bourne hits an arm drag to escape.  Rhodes tags in and cuts him off from making the tag.  Rhodes and McIntyre keep the heat on Bourne.  McIntyre applies a rear chin lock.  McIntyre clocks Bourne and sends him outside to get beaten up by Rhodes.  Back inside, McIntyre reapplies his rear chin lock.  McIntyre goes for a suplex, but Bourne knees his way free.  Bourne connects with another knee strike and makes the hot tag to Henry.  Henry beats up Rhodes and knocks McIntyre off the apron.  Henry hits a corner splash and a press slam.  Bourne tags in and climbs onto Henry’s shoulders.  McIntyre cuts them off and gets nailed by Bourne with a kick.  Rhodes hits Bourne with the Cross Rhodes for the pin in 11:42 to win the titles.  Fun match, but the first 3 eliminates were way too rushed.

WWE SummerSlam 2010

Posted in WWE with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2010 by Grappleholic

WWE open, awesome PPV opening video, 7 Eleven and Slim Jim present SummerSlam!  Pyro and ballyhoo.  We are LIVE from Los Angeles!  Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, and Matt Striker are the announcers.  Tony Chimel and Justin Roberts are the ring announcers.

The PPV gets off to a very obnoxious start, as Vickie Guerrero says “EXCUSE ME!” approximately 23,000 times in a row.  I’d rather be punched in the face than have to listen to her awful voice.  Thank God Kofi Kingston’s music interrupts.

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: Dolph Ziggler (c) (w/ Vickie Guerrero) vs. Kofi Kingston.  Kofi is still pretty pissed off over the whole being fucked out of the title thing.  He clotheslines Ziggler to the floor and goes for a tope suicida, but Vickie pulls Ziggler out of the way so Kofi kills himself.  Kofi makes it back into the ring and Ziggler pounds on him.  Ziggler applies an aggressive rear chin lock.  Kofi fights out.  Ziggler chokes him against the bottom rope.  Shouldn’t he be fired for that?  Kofi fights back, but Ziggler sends his face into the middle turnbuckle for 2.  Ziggler hits the Perfect neck snap for 2.  Ziggler continues beating and stretching Kofi.  Kofi avoids a corner splash and fights back.  Kofi hits the Boom Drop.  Kofi hits a rebound cross body, but Ziggler rolls through for 2.  Ziggler hits the Fameasser for 2.  Kofi hits a diving chop and goes for the Trouble In Paradise.  Ziggler ducks it and clamps on the sleeper hold.  The Nexus run in and attack both of them!  It’s a no-contest in about 7 minutes.  Skip Sheffield clotheslines Ziggler out of the ring, then all 7 of them beat the fuck out of Kofi.  Darren Young and Wade Barrett hit their shitty finishers on Kofi.  Barrett says that’s just a taste of what’s in store for Team WWE tonight.  He says no matter who the 7th man is, they won’t be able to form a cohesive unit, while The Nexus is unified.  “You’re either Nexus, or you’re against us.”  The match was okay.  They could have had a really good match if they were given some time.

Backstage, Chris Jericho and Edge try to convince The Miz to be the 7th man on Team WWE.  Miz says he isn’t sure.  It’s about time to get off of your ass and make a decision, buddy!  Despite Miz’s noncommittal reply, Edge and Jericho think they have him.

WWE Divas Championship Match: Alicia Fox (c) vs. Melina.  Melina is dressed like an Indian or some shit.  Despite what idiot Cole says, Melina isn’t an all time great at anything unless it’s running the train on the locker room.  They lock up.  Fox takes Melina down with a side headlock.  Melina hits a sliding leg trip thing, then surfboards the legs and pulls Fox’s hair.  Melina beats up Fox.  Melina hits a double knee drop when Fox propped up on the middle rope.  Fox does a Thesz press, then Melina gets 2.  Not sure what happened there.  Melina jumps over a charging Fox and sells that she hurt her knee.  Fox attacks her and sends her shoulder into the post.  Fox works Melina’s arm.  Melina gets a schoolgirl for 2.  Melina screams and beats up Fox.  Melina hits that hairmare Stroke she’s been doing for the pin in 5:23.  This sucked.  Melina is awful.  Thank God it was short.  Josh Matthews gets in the ring to interview Melina.  Because this show apparently hasn’t had enough obnoxious bitches on it yet, WWE Women’s Champion Layla & Michelle McCool come out and be fucking obnoxious.  Melina tires of this shit and attacks them.  LayCool beat Melina down.  Alicia Fox comes back in and they kick her ass too.  McCool knees Melina in the face against the announce table.  Fucking pointless crap.

Night of Champions hype!

Los Angeles!

Trace Adkins and Marlon Wayans are in the house tonight!

They show Big Show taking CM Punk’s mask off and the Straight Edge Society’s retaliatory breaking of Big Show’s hand.

Handicap Match: The Straight Edge Society (w/ Serena) vs. The Big Show.  For some reason, the trainer waits until match time to cut the cast off of Show’s hand.  Mercury and Gallows attack Show and completely fail.  Show uses the bad hand to hit Gallows with the big chop.  Show throws Gallows out of the ring and hits a choke bomb on Mercury.  Mercury tries to pull Show out of the ring like an idiot.  Show pulls Mercury back in and press slams him out of the ring onto Gallows.  Serena distracts Show so Punk can try to jump him, but Show kicks Punk’s ass.  Outside, Punk tries to stomp Show’s hand into the steps again, but fails.  Show tries to chop Punk on the steps, but Punk moves and the step gets all of it.  The Straight Edge Society triple team Show on the outside, then in the ring.  They take turns splashing Show in the corner until Show explodes and kicks their asses.  He squashes Gallows and Mercury int he corner, then hits them with a double shoulder block.  Punk comes off the top, but Show catches him by the throat.  Punk kicks his way free and avoids S Show in the corner, then hits the running knees to the corner.  Punk and Mercury hit Show with a double diving bulldog.  Mercury covers, but Show throws him off.  Punk attacks Show’s hand.  Show rallies, sends Punk outside, and hits Gallows and Mercury with a double clothesline.  Punk and Serena leave.  Show hits Gallows with the KO punch, then chokeslams Mercury on top of him and pins them both in 6:48.  It was fine for what it was.

Edge Slim Jim commercial.

World Heavyweight Champion Kane cuts  his usual creepy backstage promo with the casket.  WWE Champion Sheamus comes in.  He says the casket is too big for Rey Mysterio, but asks to borrow it to put Randy Orton in.  Kane says no.  Sheamus says he’s the real Big Red Monster.  Kane says Sheamus has guts, which he’ll spill on the floor if Sheamus ever interrupts him again.

WWE United States Champion The Miz comes out to cut a promo.  He says Team WWE have been begging him to join and saying or doing various things to suck up to him.  He talks about how big of a decision this is, then finally says yes, he will join Team WWE.  He yells at the crowd that they’re not allowed to say his catchphrase.  Great promo by Miz.  Cole mizzes in his pants.

the STF for the win in 35:21!  Awesome match, even though I don’t understand the logic of Team WWE winning.  If Gabriel had hit the 450 and pinned Cena, that would have been great.  If Barrett had immediately pounced and pinned Cena, that would have been perfect.  Superman Cena winning against all odds makes no sense if they’re serious about pushing The Nexus.  Cena stands tall to close the show.

Good show overall.  There was nothing offensive besides the usual divas garbage.
