Just starting the Smackdown thread, and a recommendation. We get Smackdown in Australia before you guys so without spoiling anything, do yourselves a favor and catch this show.

It's a good one.

Three oinkers wearing pants, a plate of hot air, a basket of grandma's breakfast and change a bull to a gill, got it.

I'm not sure what show you were watching, but this one wasn't great. The Beat the Clock idea is always better in theory than execution, because the matches constantly devolve into small packages and backslides (instead of bridging German suplexes, or other things that might actually hurt). Plus, we got 6 and a half minutes of Jimmy Wang Yang vs. Tatanka.

They did the entire "Beat the Clock" idea on Raw a couple of years back...and it was better then. I guess it was because of the Evolution storyline.

If you are gonna do the bret hart chest bump for the finish, the guy has to actually throw you into the turnbuckle...not pull ur pants down and for some reason you start running full speed.

MVP's interview segment was dissapointing.

Jillian Hall (right?) actually did the best talking.

Who was the woman in the vingettes? I swore it was the euro trash from the diva search.

So next week all the matches will be less than 5:05? Is Vince gauging reaction to a WSX type product?

It was Maryse. Not so much Euro trash...but French-Canadian.

Yes setting the best time at 5:06 means for short matches but It's better than last time they did this gimmick. Last time I think the record was set at 1 minute early on and then someone got 40 seconds and someone got 30 seconds. So the lengths of these matches are actually way better than last time.

I thought the matches were pretty good though. I liked the Kane/Chavo match it was unusually good for a really small guy vs. a really big guy. I enjoyed the Helms and Booker match too. And Benoit and Kennedy is good, it's a shame they continue to do nothing with Benoit though, he's obviously still one of the most over guys and Benoit/Batista is one of the few interesting title matchups.

Not sure who they're going to go with as the winner though. Kennedy wouldn't be a bad choice if it's a pre-Rumble match and not the main event. But usually the winner of one of these beat the clock deals is one of the last guys to compete. I don't see UT winning now if they're it's going to be Batista/UT at WM, although I guess a rematch is always possible. Maybe Matt Hardy will win...just kidding.

Man, where in the world is this Vickie angle going? For a minute there I was worried we were about to have another suicide angle.

meh... the show really was nothing special.

I hadnt watched Smackdown in a few, so it was nice to see Benoit in action again but aside from that...idk.

As for Vickie Guerrero, its a very strange situation with her; on one hand- people want to boo her, its palpable that they want to boo her. On the other hand, she is Eddie's wife... so nobody does boo her...awkward.
Also, she's no actress.

Really this just goes back to my opinion that there shant have been gimmicks and storylines about Eddie after his death, as they all have been pretty lame in my opinion anyway.

This was the first SD! I have caught in a few months, and it was nice to have several matched in the 6-7 minute range, and they were pretty good matches for the most part. Except maybe Tatanka-Yang.

In the 20 years since Savage/Steamboat at WM3, I've never seen the 'bodyslam-rolled-through-into-a-pin' finish in ANY match....until Ashley/Jillian. Weird.

I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.

Didn't Flair-Steamboat at Wrestlewar '89 end that way?

I don't know, I imagine if Benoit at least got the same hype as HHH did for his return it would throw him right into the main event picture. I suppose we'll see where the WWF wants to put him by how much hype they put into his return.
