Since I was there, let me review a few of the matches.
MORTIS over jobber (Mortis looked good, old Mortis Offense with that underhanded choke thing he used to do. Plus, he came out with his little skull on a sceptor thingee)
Ultimo Dragon over jobber (Ultimo looked inspired, got a nice loud pop. Why isnt Vince listening to the crowds?)
Matt Hardy over Orlando Jordan (not bad, Jordan looked good, new tights as well, out with the black, in with the YELLOW!) Nunzio over Sho Funaki (nothing special, Funaki still rules though) Johnny Stambol/Chuck Pulumbo over jobbers (nice match, a few blown spots by Chuck. Nice double teaming by FBI, made me think of the Andersons (Ole and Gene) the way they cut the ring in half and just beat on a guy) Sean O'Haire over Kenny Anderson (Yes Thrill, that is the guy. We were chanting BABY STIENER at him. He didnt look too bad. O'Haire looked like crap though, boring match)
Vince starts off the show and introduces the REAL Brock Lesner, also said that Kurt Angle is back home recovering from last week, and steph comes out to confront Vince about Vengeance and then Vince sets up the Steph vs A train match (the real Brock cuts a promo saying he is tired of doing what everybody wants him to, yet goes and nearly kills Spanky on McMahons orders)
TWGTT over Rey Mysterio Jr./Billy Kidman (exciting match, looked really good live. Mysterio is just INSANELY over)
Danny Basham over Billy Gunn (a Nidia run in, with Jami-son ooops I meant Jamie Noble. Nidia eats a powebomb from Shaniqua. Bashams had some nice looking double team offense when they were beating on Gunn. Hopefully they will be given time to show their stuff. Not too bad live)
Big Show over Undertaker via Count Out, A Train attacked Taker in the crowd. (SLUGfest with the key phrase being SLUG, as in, "SLOW AS A".)
Tajiri over Rhyno, Benoit/Guerrero were doing guest commentary (short match, no green mist, Rhyno wears velour tights)
John Cena over Zach Gowen (Nice rap on Zach, Matt Hardy runs out afterwards and knocks Zach down)
Spanky over Brock Lesner via DQ, (Spanky eats the most vicious chair shot I have ever witnessed and then blades like he was on fire and trying to put it out with blood)
A Train over Steph, taker came out, but Big Slow and Atrain attacked him and thus allowed Atrain to get the victory over Steph. (YAWN)
For those of us who don't like to get eaten alive by mosquitoes to see fireworks, we were blessed by a pleasently entertaining Smackdown!. Yep, I liked the show. The tag title match had a hot crowd and the action was pretty steady.
