From PWInsider.com:

Cena beats RVD in a #1 contender's match. He'll face Booker T at Summerslam in a "Best of 5 Series" match for the title.
Orlando Jordan beats Rene Dupree
Kurt Angle beats Charlie Haas
London and Kidman beat the Bashams
The Dudleyz beat Rey and Spike. After the match, Spike turns on Rey and joins Bubba and D-Von in beating the holy hell out of him.

Plus an Eddie promo with the Divas, and a JBL/Taker segment with Jordan (what the...) running in to save JBL, but ends up getting squashed anyways.

I'm utterly confused by Orlando Jordan's role in all of this. He's presumably the face against Dupree, and then comes down to save JBL? Unless of course the guy doing the spoilers somehow confused him with Heidenreich or even Jindrak in the final segment.

Booker v Cena should be fun at Summerslam, and I prefer the best of 5 format to an Ironman match or some such. FWIW Booker beat Billy on Velocity. And midgets are back in vouge! Rejoice!! ;)

Jordan beating Dupree?! MIDGET UNDERTAKER?! What the fuck is this, OVW? I mean, geez, I'm happy with Cena/RVD, Angle/Haas and the Spike turn, but those two segments are just monumental in their stupidity.





Once upon a time in China, some believe, around the year one double-ought three, head priest of the White Lotus Clan, Pai Mei was walking down the road, contemplating whatever it is that a man of Pai Mei's infinite power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who knows" - when a Shaolin monk appeared, traveling in the opposite direction. As the monk and the priest crossed paths, Pai Mei, in a practically unfathomable display of generosity, gave the monk the slightest of nods. The nod was not returned. Now was it the intention of the Shaolin monk to insult Pai Mei or did he just fail to see the generous social gesture? The motives of the monk remain unknown. What is known, are the consequences. The next morning Pai Mei appeared at the Shaolin Temple and demanded of the Temple's head abbot that he offer Pai Mei his neck to repay the insult. The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was inconsolable. So began the massacre of the Shaolin Temple and all 60 of the monks inside at the fists of the White Lotus. And so began the legend of Pai Mei's five point palm exploding heart technique.

The Orlando Jordan is kinda weird ... why not have him get beaten by Dupree, become frustrated and then turn ... could at least make for a backstage vignette 'tween he & JBL where he is getting berated by the champ for losing to the French.

Sounds like a decent show ... liking the Spike turn ... sends his character into a new direction that it needed.

Just wondering if this Booker/Cena thing will be a best of 5 match AT SummerSlam, or if they'll have their first match at SS, with the fifth and final one taking place at the next SD-only PPV.

They could go after that whole 'Booker/Benoit or Magnum/Nikita Best of Seven Series' vibe that SmackDown really needs right now. To me, anyways, that would be a lot more effective than one looooong match at SummerSlam.

I can only imagine that they're going for a losing streak angle with Dupree. He lost to someone shitty (quite who escapes me) last week as well. Maybe he'll spend the next few weeks looking for that certain je ne sais quoi which will get him back on the winning trail leading to a face turn. I can't be the only one who wants to cheer his little French shuffle can I? ;)

London/Kidman debut new matching tights, and Angle/Haas is said to be pretty good. And they must be pretty down on Dupree to be jobbing him to Jordan.

Velocity:
Kenzo over Shannon Moore
FBI over Knoble/Chavo
Booker over Billy Gunn (Book is said to be super-over)

All in all, SD looks to be pretty good this week (on paper, better than Raw), and Velocity doesn't look too shabby either. Looking forward to the Velocity tag match. It looks like they're beginning to right the ship for SD. Too bad they didn't do it when Eddie was champ, as I think his reign really got the shaft.

Some more detailed spoilers from PWInsider.com

Dark Match:

Funaki vs. Carly Colon: Colon got some decent heel heat in this match even though no one knew who he was. He came off as the arrogant heel and had a big 'fro. Back and forth action throughout ending with Colon trying to hold the ropes for the pin but the ref sees it and Funaki counters with a rollup for the win.

Velocity:

Shannon Moore vs. Kenzo Suzuki: I haven't seen Moore in awhile so I just noticed he had cut his hair short. Another promo at the beginning how the fans didn't like Kenzo at first but now they do and that he likes USA. Shannon gets in some pretty good offense here but is taken down by the claw-to-the-head slam by Suzuki for the 3.

FBI promo with Nunzio asking Stamboli if he has a passport for Summer Slam. The Bull says he doesn't need one since its in Toledo. Nunzio corrects him telling him its in Toronto. Stamboli says he'll smuggle a passport.

FBI (Nunzio and Johnny the Bull) vs. Jamie Noble and Chavo Guerrero: Pretty decent match here. Lots of EDDIE chants when Chavo was in the ring, which he played off well. The ending saw The Bull doing a knee-back breaker on Noble with Nunzio hitting a leg drop from the top rope for the win.

Billy Gunn vs. Booker T (Non-title match): Booker got one of the biggest pops of the night. I'm sure they put him on Velocity due to expecting this. Pretty decent match with tons of Booker chants throughout. Booker T does the Spinaroonie and hits the scissors kick for the win.

SmackDown!:

Teddy Long says the first match will be a #1 contenderís match for the US Title. Out first comes John Cena. The Toyota Center is going mad as Cena comes out with a vintage Nolan Ryan Astros jersey. His opponent is RVD.

John Cena vs. Rob Van Dam: Tons of Cena chants during this match and not too many RVD chants. Cena suplexes RVD over the top rope. Later on Cena goes for a FU that RVD counters and then goes to the top rope and hits a nice leg drop for a 2. RVD gets Cena on the top rope for a Superplex and nails it but Cena reverses the pinfall with an inside cradle for the 1-2-3. It is announced that Cena will face Booker T at Summer Slam in a Best of 5 Series match to decide the US Championship.

Eddie promo: This was just too fun. Eddie comes out in a nice yellow, low-rider but he doesn't come alone. He has Torrie Wilson, Dawn Marie and Sable in the car with him. Eddie says he needed some help selling Angle's stuff so he solicited the help of the lovely Divas. At one point Eddie gets in the wheelchair and says that his cousin Chuy was supposed to put the hydraulics in but he tells Dawn Marie to sit in his lap and he'll show her some hydraulics. Eddie is the man and the fans are totally loving this so far. He gets the Divas to autograph a few more pieces of the merchandise and they go on their way. Next, Eddie tells us that he has a Summer Slam commercial of his own. It is a 100 meter race and Eddie is in the blocks with the rest of the runners. The gun sounds and Eddie just stands up while the other runners aren't moving. It shows the runners have their shoes tied to the start blocks and Eddie begins to run unchallenged to the end with a little showboating on the way. This was so funny!

Rene Dupree vs. Orlando Jordan: This was a really quick match. Dupree throws Jordan to the outside and does his French Tickler. While he does it Jordan gets on the top rope and hits a body press for the 1-2-3. Afterwards Dupree flicks off the fans.

JBL promo: JBL says he's not afraid of the Undertaker and that he will in fact call him out tonight.

Kurt Angle (with Luther Reigns) vs. Charlie Haas (with Jackie Gayda): This was a great match with a lot of back and forth action and near falls. At one point Haas was a fraction away from getting a 3-count. At the end Angle hits the Angle Slam and clutches in the Ankle Lock for the submission victory. Minimal interference by Luther during the match, mainly just taunted Jackie a couple of times.

Paul London and Billy Kidman vs. The Basham Brothers (WWE Tag Team Title Match): A certain Wrestling Babe's dreams have come true. Paul London has new tights! He and Billy had matching white tight shorts with flames on them. Definitely an upgrade for London. Back and forth match with an awesome ending by Mr. London. Paul goes to the top rope and does a double-flip and lands on one of the Bashams for the pin. This move was incredible!

Rey Mysterio and Spike Dudley vs. Bubba Ray and D-Von Dudley: Spike sells a injured knee he got at the beginning of the match and doesn't really see any action after that. Rey is left to fight off both Dudleys. He does a pretty good job but gets caught in a 3D and as Spike is crawling to stop the pin its too late. After the match, Spike goes up to Rey to console him and then gives him a big kick in the junk. Bubba and D-Von get a table from under the ring and place Mysterio on it with the Cruiserweight belt on top of his stomach. Spike goes to the top rope and does a jump stomp on Mysterio that breaks the table. After the Dudley celebrate and leave Rey won't let the refs help at first but eventually does as EMS comes to the ring.

JBL/Taker Promo: JBL comes out and doesn't shake any hands or kiss any babies. Some dude had a plastic baby with a sign but I couldn't see what the sign said. Sure it was something funny. JBL says he was looking forward to coming home to Texas but has a poor reception in Houston and says that he's glad he's in New York now. Then he calls out the Taker and the gong sounds and out comes . . . MINI TAKER. A little midget dressed as the Undertaker comes out with all the garb and does the Undertaker walk down to the ring. JBL tells a bunch of corny short jokes to MINI TAKER and then goes to give him a Tombstone as the Undertaker's music hits. JBL looks for Taker coming from the ramp entrance but turns around to see him right behind him. JBL tells Undertaker he needs to get going and then tries to Brawl with him. Just as Taker is about to put JBL down Orlando Jordan comes out and saves JBL. Undertaker kneels down as the lights dim and then MINI TAKER does the same thing. This didn't sit well with Taker so he gave his little impersonator a big Choke Slam as the show goes off air.

I called it.

Anyhow, could it be that Smackdown is back in an upswing after several months of suck since the Draft Lottery?

Also, I'd like to know how they'll pull off a Best of 5 US Title match on Summerslam. Are they going to give Booker and Cena 40 minutes for themselves? Maybe I'm missing something.

Perhaps they'll format it like the Best of 7 with Benoit? Have one match on each show and the final match be on Summerslam?

I fancy it'll be done in the one night. They could just have a couple of the falls'll probably be quick successive roll-ups for each guy meaning the match would be done in about 20mins or so. It would be a total break from their recent style of show to book it over more than one night, but then I could be completely wrong.

I'll withhold most of my judgment till after I see it. I like the Spike turn, and I think that like the other two Dudleys it will rejuvenate him. And did anyone even know Jordan was still on the main roster? I hadn't seen him or even read his name in house show results since probably April. I'd imagine they'll do 5 separate matches with Booker and Cena, which could be OK, but it won't rival Booker-Benoit in that best of seven as you're replacing a great worker in Benoit with a subpar worker in Cena. Overall looks like a good show.

Well, if this is a best of 5 match series, and if say, the announcers would incorporate how the Benoit/Booker Best of 7 back in WCW helped propel Book into becoming a legit singles star in the eyes of many fans, and tie that into the present, then it could work out really, really nicely. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Good question ... the Torch is reporting that Cena will take a brief hiatus in September to work on 'The Marine' ... I wonder how this will parlay into the whole best-of-5-series.

Someone please refresh my memory here. Didn't that Booker/Benoit series have a double DQ or draw in there somewhere, prompting the eighth match at Great American Bash? Or am I just nuts?

That'd be pretty tough, since there's only this SD and 1 more before Slam.

I'd rather they do a best of 5, with the final/blowoff match at the next PPV, rather than squeeze in everything at Slam.

Booker got decked by a Bret chair shot in match 7 but Benoit refused to pin him because he's such a darned nice fellow and didn't want to win like that. He told the ref what happened and got DQ'd for his trouble.

On finding out Booker T (also a very nice man) decided he didn't want to win in such a manner either leading to the match result being scrapped and the final match being set up at the Bash.

Not that any of that means your not nuts of course...
