I know, confusing. But from a report I read (I won't link to keep the site spoiler-free):

Dark Match:

"Ryback" Skip Sheffield defeated Tyson Kidd

Reporting a return in a dark match doesn't count as spoilers, right?

I liked him before he got hurt and I'm glad WWE didnt drop him and forget about him.

But "Ryback"? As in "I'll be RYBACK"? Yuk yuk

Wouldn't it have been easier to use "Skip Sheffield returns in dark math at Smackdown tapings" as the thread title?

Guys, this isn't the Observer - you CAN put the news IN the thread title instead of trying to be clever and cryptic about it and saving it for the post. There's no prize for making people click through to the thread.

(Also, please think of thread titles as newspaper headlines - let me know if you need a primer on what a "newspaper" is - and write them accordingly, and yes, that means DON'T stick a period on the end of them, five or six dudes who constantly do that.)

[Note that this DOES mean you can try to write them as New York Post headlines, but even Justin and John sometimes whiff when they try that, so don't go in over your head here.]

I don't know. If this was titled 'WWE Superstar Returns to Action at SMACKDOWN Tapings!" and then clicked on it, I'd be rather disappointed and want a refund.

Yes, it would have, but I was a bit unclear about whether this counted as a spoiler or not and figured I'd err on the side of caution. Feel free to edit the subject if you'd like to reflect the clearer version, now that you've given your approval.

I believe Skip has been working on house shows as Ryback for the last couple weeks.

Also, "ryback" is apparently a guy in a black body suit.

Live from Las Vegas: Yeah, in the arena it was hard to tell what we're calling him now, but that's what I guessed they were saying. I didn't recognise him right away -- thought for all the world he looked like Big Show's ripped little brother, for some reason. (Never got that feel from him before.) I think he's got some bright blue contact lenses. He didn't talk, but seems to be doing a general crazy person, with a lot of hitting himself on the sides of the head. Match was short, but perfectly fine. Nothing very notable about the wardrobe: black singlet (IIRC), with an armband patch with a red "R".

If they've used this opportunity to drop the hick "Yup-yup-yup" thing, I promise I'll give him another chance.

Hey! I do that.

...oh, see what you did there.

What I usually do is have my thread titles be whole sentences. Sentences get punctuation. When I have a title that is only, like, a movie title or a short statement that isn't a whole sentence, then I won't use punctuation.

So, anyway, yeah, that was a repackaged Skip Sheffield in the "dark match", pre-NXT portion of last night's Smackdown live show.

I didn't see anything particular happen. During the TV portion of the show, they'd announced that Big Show wasn't there -- that was pretty clearly a plotline thing re Daniel Bryan. The "after TV (taping)" match was Daniel Bryan vs Big Show in a cage match , for the title. That was going along fine til a runin by Wade Barrett (& a mildly-spoilerish companion -- see below). That caused the DQ, & allowed DB to skulk off. Runin by Sheamus for the assist to Show, including double chokeslam by Show on the heels. Sheamus did the working the crowd, but Show looked fine leaving.



Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Drew McIntyre. Earlier in the TV portion of the show, Teddy Long had told Drew that he'd lost 3 "last chances", & so was fired. Santino intervened, said people had been saying it was a fluke that he had beaten McIntyre & wanted a rematch to prove them wrong. Teddy was fine with that. All night they had been doing the patented Las Vegas wheel of fortune thingie to pick the match stipulation. This one came up blindfold match. (Yeah, there was a lot of goofiness in this show. Even moreso when you consider the wedding debacle from the NXT taping portion of the show. Maybe I should have done a Live Spoilers thread after all.)

So, Santino won the blindfold match via support from his loyal crowd. Thus leaving McIntyre at 4 strikes. Next up was the main event: Lumberjack match with Mark Henry vs Daniel Bryan. Drew McIntyre was among the lumberjacks. (Not fired yet!) The whole thing devolved into a giant brawl inring, with DB skulking off with his belt & MH lumbering off. Sheamus was the ad hoc "winner" of the brawl, clearing most of the ring Royal Rumble style. Notably, McIntyre was the last one left with Sheamus, & made quite the fine showing in the brawl. I'm assuming that Drew's career will be miraculously revived, based on his strong performance in the brawl.

During the after-show cage match Barrett & McIntyre came out for the runin on Show. Hence we ended up with Barrett & McIntyre vs. Sheamus & Show. I quite enjoy those 3 big brits together. :-)

kind of eh compared to their previous matches on Velocity though, although the Michinokou Driver was a nice touch.
