---------------------------------------------------------

Velocity

Sylvan pinned Funaki after a DDT. (Velocity Graphics,
but no announce team until after this match.)

LOD pinned Nunzio/Vito after the Doomsday Device.

Bob Holly pinned Simon Dean after an Alabama Slam.

Kid Kash pinned Scotty 2 Hotty after a moonsault.
Scotty might have been injured here as well. The
moonsault was a double jump where Kash stands on the
top facing center ring, jumps to face away and then
jumps to actually do the moonsault. I could tell when
he was in the air it wasn't going to land right. It
looked as if Kash's knees went straight into Hotty's
arm and/or head. Probably an arm injury based on post
match reaction.

Spanky and London over Burchill and Regal when Spanky
pinned Burchill. Finish was a double team enziguri
from London into a Spanky Stroke for the pin.

Smackdown

Rey over Orton by DQ when Coboy Bob interferes. As
the Ortons work over Rey, Matt Hardy comes in and
cleans house on the heels.

In ring interview with MNM to do the stupid Top Model
tie in. To make a stupid segment short, MNM brings
out Michelle, insults her, Michelle slaps Melina,
Melina retalliates and back Michelle into corner,
which of course brings in the Mexicools to save the
day because they love Top Model or something.
Mexicools beat up heels, dance with model.

Lashely pinned Jordan with the dominator in a Survivor
Series Qualifying match. (Lashley gets on to 5 man
squad to represent Smackdown)

Eddie over Kennedy by DQ in another qualifying match.
Ref bump allows Eddie to set up Kennedy for a DQ by
tossing him a chair right as Charles Robinson gets up.
Kennedy goes nuts and then really does hit Eddie
with the chair. (Backstage interview segment later on
tonight would show Eddie with a concussion).

Pierrothito pinned Buzz Stone (?) Couldn't quite make
out the second guys name, no graphics on screen to
verify either. This was horrible and they blew
several spots. Nice elbow off the top for the finish
though.

They did an interview with the "Dicks" backstage.
They really went all out with this one. Some phrases
said during this gem were, "Dicks take a pounding",
"cocky", "rock hard", "Can LOD beat the Dicks?", etc.
This may come across dumb on TV, but in the arena,
everyone was laughing and I just don't see how they
can be heels if they keep doing this. The crowd loved
this.

JBL pinned Benoit with the clothesline from hell after
Booker T interfered when Benoit seemingly had it won.
This was another qualifying match.

Edge vs Batista. Edge did not end up doing anything
physical. It was all a set up from Bischoff. After
Batista and Edge were in the ring, Bischoff showed up
on the big screen and Teddy Long told him to get out.
Blah blah blah, Masters jumps Long's security guards
and puts Teddy in the Masterlock. Then they jump in a
car and leave. The major faces (including JBL) from
Smackdown run out to help Teddy. Teddy tells them to
go get the Raw guys. So the faces pile in JBL's limo
and speed off. This sets up the master plan. So
Batista is in the ring and Kane's pyro goes off, he
comes down the aisle, then Big Show enters from the
other side of the arena. Edge, Show, and Kane gang up
on Batista and lay him out to end the show. The non
major faces from Smackdown kept coming in one by one
and were quickly dumped by either Big Show or Kane.

Before we get to the results which I will send in
shortly after sending this, tonight's potentially
major news is that Batista was injured. Odds are it
was from the double chokeslam from Kane and Big Show
to end Smackdown. After they stopped taping for TV,
Orton came out for the local main event (Batista vs
Orton vs Eddie) As Orton was on the mic, Batista was
still down. There was no ref in the ring until Orton
called for one right before he put the boots to
Batista. Therefore, I don't think Randy had any
communication from Batista that he couldn't continue.
As soon as Jimmy Korderis figured it out, he threw up
the X symbol and it was an obvious visual scramble to
get out of there. Within a minute or so, they set up
a quick spinebuster spot and Batista just rolled over
and covered Orton for the 3. (no Eddie because he was
selling the concussion angle from earlier in the show)
Once the match was over, help came out from the back
and Batista did get up eventually and walk out with
the two assistants, however he didn't acknowledge the
crowd at all or hold up his belt. He just got out of
there and straight to the back.

-----------------------------------------------------

You know, I like the idea of a Raw vs. SmackDown feud, but the execution has been pretty poor. I mean, logically, why would people like the Big Show and Matt Hardy be so gung ho to represent shows they've only been on for a few months (or, in Hardy's case, weeks?). Isn't it a little out of character for Kane to be coming to the defense of Raw, when he's a psychotic monster? And, most importantly, what do the Bobby Lashleys/Ken Kennedys/Eddie Guerreros/Carlitos/Shelton Benjamins of the world have to GAIN by being in this match? Is there any tangible reward for them other than being on the "superior brand"?

In storyline terms, it's a big deal for these wrestlers to be in a high-profile match at a major PPV. Helping your brand win at Survivor Series will also put them in better favour with their GM.

So it's Kane/Big Show/Michaels/Carlito and either Edge (if healthy) or Masters vs. Lashley/Eddie/Bradshaw and probably Rey and Batista (presuming now that Batista isn't hurt). If Batista is hurt, Matt Hardy will likely get into the match, especially if Edge is there too. So oddly enough, it's an all-face Smackdown side except for JBL against an all-heel Raw side except for Michaels (Show and Kane are faces, true, but their size makes them easy heels). I honestly don't know who's going to win at Survivor Series...if I had to guess, I'd saw Raw wins thanks to Michaels gutting out another superman performance.

I guess that the WWE weren't aware that The Shane Twins once played The Johnsons on the early days of TNA. At least (I hope) they don't come out wearing flesh-colored trunks.

Trust me. Vince/Steph/Creative knows what wrestler has done what gimmick in TNA and probably a few of the bigger indys like ROH as well.

They were actually dressed more like The Fabulous Ones with the little collars/bowties, wristcuffs, and sparkly suspenders.

While I see your point, it still doesn't make much sense. Why would Michaels or Kane or Big Show WANT to be in favor with Eric Bischoff?

Wow. Between this and the Angle/Cena angle in the second hour of RAW, the booking has been even more non-sensical this week than it usually is. What gives? Is there someone new in creative?

It's one thing when they had Edge and Masters as the main guys Bischoff was sending to Smackdown. But...Big Show and Kane?

I'm fairly certain the plan was at one point to have another Eddy/Batista title match at Survivor Series, but the booking at the tapings last night (before Batista got injured) seemed to indicate those plans were scrapped...which is odd, because that meant Smackdown was going to go into Survivor Series with the RAW vs. Smackdown 5-on-5 match as their marquee match, while RAW will most likely have that plus the Cena/Angle rematch.

Has WWE just thrown their hands in the air and conceded that Smackdown's the B-show brand?

Well to be fair, Smackdown will probably have UT/Orton as their big match, so as to not overload the card too much having the Champions be on the Raw & Smackdown teams would seem like the most logical avenue to go down, but Cena has the issue with Bischoff/Angle, so I can't see him being on the Raw team.

On a somewhat funny note, Pierrothito showed up a little late to the Conseco field house, and came in the wrong door. I noticed he was a wrestler (who else would bring rolling luggage to the field house) and could see he was having some trouble getting across that he was there for the show that night. I went over and translated for him, then went with him to the security shack to translate again so he could get into the backstage area.

Before that, I ran into Ashley at Starbucks in the field house lobby, she was dressed like a punkier version of a 60's housewife in a grey and white polka dotted dress with a black sweater (with embroidered skull!) buttoned once at the neck over it, and black fishnets. Not quite sure why she was there, perhaps to train a bit more? I also got to talk to some of the crew guys about the broadcast equipment they use, and how the new parts of the Raw set are a complete pain.

Probably to spend some time with her new boyfriend, Matt Hardy.

WWE.com has an update basically saying that Batista's checked in with Dr. Andrews in Birmingham and will make a decision regarding surgery by the weekend. If he opts for surgery, he's out for "up to three months" (according to WWE.com), which probably would be 8-14 for a normal person.

Also, regarding GMs and favors: The logic within the promotion is that champions get paid more than others in their divisions. Cena, Batista, Carlito, MNM, Kane, Big Show, Juventud & Trish are supposed to get more coin, better treatment and just have cushier times because they're recognized as the best. Everybody wants to be a champion (or stay a champion), so the logic dicates that HBK would do things to stay in favor with his GM so he can get the title.

And national ads in movie theatres and TV shows promote a Batista/Guerrero World Title bout, so I'm not sure if plans changed or if they were going to get to that match via circular booking...but that may be out the window now.

Just watched the match on tv now, and it looks like it happened from taking a big boot from Kane 2 seconds into the beat down. Didn't notice anything weird about how he landed, but he definitely grabbed his side right away. Looked like just a freak injury.

Post-SmackDown, they announced that next week Batista will defend the World Title against Eddie Guerrero and Randy Orton in a triple-threat match. I see them taking the title off of Batista at that point (please, God, give it to Guerrero), and have something happen to Batista that'll logically write him out of storylines for the next few months.

Damn.

I noticed that too and also he says something to Show when he picks him up. Probably just told him he was hurt.

If they're smart, IF, they put the title on Orton then push Eddie as a full-blown face against him for the next coupla months. Have Guerrero take the belt off of him, then you've got a nice match-up set for WrestleMania when Batista returns.

But that's a BIG if.
