Welcome to WWE Smackdown!

Vince McMahon's now in full heel mode, making fun of Wisconsin, calling them cheezeheads and saying it stinks there. He says that it smells of fear because people fear him, etc. etc. Too bad Mr. Kennedy's been released. Anyhow, he calls Theodore Long into the ring. Theodore long tells Vince about his plans for the night...but that's apparently not good enough for Vince, and he and puts Long on probation. That sucks. Anyhow, R. Truth comes out with his What's Up rap, and we go to commercial.

Match 1: R-Truth d. Shelton Benjamin with a corkscrew flying something or other. Pretty sweet move. Those two work well together. No sign of Charlie Haas, though.

Backstage, McMahon and Long visit Rey Mysterio. McMahon starts douching (that is, being a total douche) on Rey, and he then responds to him in Spanish...McMahon immediately tells LOng that Smackdown will be English only. Does Khali speak any English? Eh.

DID YOU KNOW? More people watched Raw than any other episode in the past seven years. Really? I think their ratings were pretty good for the show but I'm pretty certain that the ratings during the Monday Night Wars were better.

Match 2: Alicia Fox & Michelle McCool d. Fail Kim and Melina.

Yes - I called her Fail - but that's the WWE's fault - they're not doing anything with her, and that's upsetting. Melina was pretty good in the match, but even she deserves better matches than this. I miss Trish Stratus.

Backstage: The McMahon douchery continues with a visit to CM Punk. McMahon asked Punk if he's clean and if he gets high, but CM Punk says that he only gets high off is destroying things, like McMahon. McMahon doesn't like it and starts yelling at Long. Poor peanuthead.

Another match announced for the Bash: Dolph Ziggler vs. The Great Khali. THat should be fun. Those two are fun to watch in the ring.

Cryme Time and Eve are not only bringin' the hood to you, but WWE.COM with a segment of WORD UP. I ignore it on WWE, though its sometimes funny, but I ignored it now.

Match 3: John Morrison d. CM Punk

-A handshake starts the match, which I dig...the match ended after a reverse rollup turned into...I really don't know what it was: John held his arms down for the three count. It was a pretty cool move though. CM Punk gave him a handshake afterwards, but SWERVE~ because Morrison just ate up a GTS like a champ.

Backstage: Josh Matthews interviews Jericho. Jericho will unmask Mysterio, and will do him a favour and be his saviour. I'm surprized but not surprized they didn't bring up Mysterio's defrocking in WCW.

JR and Todd Grisham go over The Bash card. Should be good but I'm debating between the show or Transformers 2.

Backstage: the McMahon douchery continues when he meets up with Jeff Hardy. McMahon goes over Hardy's past, and says that he hopes Hardy loses, because having him as champ would make SD look bad. Ohhhh! Jeff obviously wasn't pleased by this and said he should look at what the fans have to say about it. Jeff walked out, and like clockwork, McMahon vents out at Long. Notice a trend?

The cage is coming down! CM Punk comes down to the ring as the special guest referee, followed by Rey and Jeff, then Chris Jericho and Edge. Hey, why didn't Edge get involved in the McMahon Douchery?

Match 4: Edge and Chris Jericho d. Jeff Hardy and Rey Mysterio

I can't recall the last time I saw a steel cage match that was ended with a pinfall...but it was pretty sweet. No heelish antics from Punk who actually hesistated counting the three count for Edge, who floored Hardy with the spear. Afterward, Punk asked the crowd to cheer for Jeff, as he gave the match his all in the ring. Not sure if there's hidden meaning to that but I thought it was kinda classy. Of course, this weekend, Punk could go uberheel and I'd love it.

Cage matches are hit and miss sometimes, but I though this one was pretty spectacular.

I'm annoyed with the return of the heel McMahon, and how he brought up Hardy's past **AGAIN** but that's just him. I know it's a character, but still...stuff like that has to hurt, even a little bit.

Four matches tonight, and outside of the Diva's match (which was OK) the others were quality, so I can't complain.

WCW folded in 2001, the last time WWE had a higher rating was the May 6, 2002.

Shelton started by cutting a promo against R-Truth's "street education" compared to his own collegiate success. He gave Truth a grammar lesson in a pretty good promo for him. Truth worked a more traditional style here and even used a powerslam.

Melina had a sweet move. From a shoulder-breaker position, she slid backward, wrapper her legs around Alicia, flipped backward, and got Fox in a pin.

They were interrupted by Jesse, sporting similar attire. he says he threw "biscuits and gravy out the window," and Cryme Tyme took his necklace.

An AWESOME match. Morrison slipped Punk into a tiger-suplex position for the pin. The match saw him use a second-rope moonsault onto Punk at ringside and counter a Punk kick with a capoeira kick. It got applause. Not cheers. APPLAUSE. Punk hits him with a reverse suplex from the turnbuckle and reverses a Shining Wizard into Lance Storm's rolling Maple Leaf. JR calls the win Morrison's "defining moment."

Jericho was knocked out of the match when Hardy scooped up a running Rey for the Bossman slam and spun him to kick Jericho. A hot, hot match that recalls the glory days of the SmackDown Six.

The trend continues for Friday night: long matches with solid action and good selling. You'd think the show would slow down or become routine. Not the case. It soars every week.

The whole Vince thing seemed really bizarre, from him "smelling fear" of the fans to putting Teddy on probation for no reason. It was so out of left field.

After all that time in ECW that CM Punk spent not winning the title Morrison must have built up a fairly nice win loss record against Punk. That would mean more if Punk hadn't lost to a whole bunch of people, but it could still be something to bring up if Morrison ever found himself challenging a slowly heel-turning CM Punk.

They ignored the ECW feud. Grisham commented at the match's start that Punk would know what to expect from Morrison because he watched last week's Edge match.

It was one thing to beat Punk fighting over the ECW title, it's another to beat Punk clean in 15 minutes while Punk is the World Champion.

It is a different situation, and it allows Morrison a boost to his profile during a significant singles face push. No argument here.

But these guys have history and when they first fought for a world title, Morrison won. I would prefer that the previous string of matches be acknowledged for the sake of the ECW title and to bolster another potential challenger to Punk's belt. It's a continuity error for a show that's recently improved the use of past histories to build up angles.

Morrison, after all his flippy kicks and springboard attacks, won by reversing a roll-up with a solid mat-wrestling move. That expands his credentials as a main-eventer.

Plus, I can't stress enough what a hot match this was. It's second only to Undertaker/Shawn, for me.

I heard that his matches with Jericho and Edge the last two weeks were outstanding (they're waiting on my DVR), so Morrison is on quite a run as a babyface.
