The show started with highlights of the wedding - they did it - they got married - and now we get the attendees set up at the top of the ramp. Ryder & Hawkins, Neely, and the hot wedding planner. Chavo then comes out then the bride and groom. They look on gleefully as audience members for:
Finlay & Hornswoggle v. Ryder & Hawkins
Edge has lost his sense of humor about this duo and declares that he shall be the special guest referee because of how Finlay & Horny always win due to shenanigans. Edge spears Finlay (no shenanigans here!) who is pinned by one or the other. Edge might have been the sharpest-dressed referee ever.
Edge and Vickie have their first dance and out comes Big Show to cut in and start dancing with Vickie. That was awesome - but now the bad news for Show:
4-On-1 Handicap Match: Vladimir Kozlov, The Great Khali, Shelton Benjamin & MVP v. Big Show
Good action - everyone hits the finishers at the end, but it was Kozlov's sternum-headbutt that took show off his feet. DQ for interference. Choke slam by Khali to end it but the camera was in close so I'm not sure how much air the move got - I'm guessing not much.
Natalya v. Cherry
Cherry looks HOT by the way. Faceful of flowers (she caught Vickie's bouquet which prompted the match) by Neidhart and then a sharpshooter. Cherry tapped after about four seconds, which is roughly 3.999999 seconds longer than last week's tap. But this was just a primer for...
Vickie Guerrero v. Cherry
Vickie, in an awkward, make-out looking cover, wins.
Jimmy Wang Yang v. Brian Kendrick w/bodyguard (someone help me on his name)
A repackaged Kendrick, looking more like a student of John Morrison than HBK, looked sharp vs. JR's favorite Asian Redneck. Good effort by both until Sliced Bread #2 ends it.
Mr. Kennedy v. Umaga
Sing-along with KK at the beginning. Umaga wins after a mic check turns into a spike check. Goody - I was afraid Umaga's losing streak would continue even after coming over from Raw. Longer match than usual for the bulldozer as most of his face paint was gone by the end.
Non-Title Match: The Miz & John Morrison v. Jesse & Festus
Good action again. Ends after the Reality Check on Jesse while Festus & Morrison are on the outside.
Non-Title Match: Matt Hardy v. Jeff Hardy
Is everything on SD! non-title? The Hardys start out by dumping the wedding cake on the wedding party - I just hate to see a good wedding cake go to waste like that. Pretty good match by the brothers until a La Familia beatdown.
The wedding party congregates in the ring for more bliss but get interrupted by HHH, and oh! he has a present. He airs some hidden footage of Edge and the hot wedding planner (name = Alicia?) doing some last minute wedding planning. Well ... long. long, long story short, they make out, Vickie freaks, Edge bolts, (HHH's present was the sledge that saw no action) and we go off the air, still with Vickie freaking. Not quite a Stephanie McMahon, hell-hath-no-fury-like-a-woman-scorned-freak-out, but we'll give her an E for effort.
Am I wrong, or has this been the only build up to HHH and Edge's match this Sunday?
I thought it was interesting that when Vicki was screaming at Edge at the end, Bam Neely was holding back the rest of La Familia who wanted to break it up. I wonder if that is going anywhere?
They quickly explained Brian Kendrick's new heel turn by JR saying he was always a nice guy in his mind, and then Mick Foley stating, "He was always a jerk to me." That was it. Maybe some mic time next week to talk about it.
So Vickie's been rollin' (-rollin-rollin') around in that damn wheel chair for months now. Barely able to struggle to her feet to slap somebody in the face. But the power of the wedding gown was enough to get her up, dancing, scampering across the ring for a pinfall! I never realised the miraculous healing power!
For a second there I thought Kendrik in his white jacket & fluffy blond hair was going to become the MiniMe fourth addition to the Edge/Ryder/Hawkins consortium.

That's pretty much all most guys actually hear, isn't it? ;-)
I am surprised by all the goodwill being shown to Santino in this thread. I don't hate him per se, and I have a known aversion to outright comedic gimmicks, but I have never really cared much for him as a performer and have assumed I was in the majority.
