WWE SmackDown! Report for 11.21.08:
- There's a recap of last week to start the show, but after that, we dive right into...

Match 1: R-Truth and Matt Hardy over Shelton Benjamin and Mark Henry when R-Truth pinned Benjamin with the Axe Kick. I forgot to record match times, so there shall be no wrestling counter. That aside, this was a fun match to start the show, but I'm not sure I agree with R-Truth's megapush, considering that it's coming at the expense at more talented people.

- Video # 424, 239 of John Cena airs, hyping his return. Actually, these have done a good job of putting over the match at Survivor Series despite Cena being off-air.

- Elsewhere, Triple H wonders if "those are real" in regard to Eve's...pearl necklace. He says he is the best, while Vlady and Jeff only think that they're the best. Vlad stops by to share some of his mother's favorite recipes.

- Elsewhere still, Miz and Morrison break up Festus applying his charms to Maria in order to wish him good luck in the upcoming match.

Match 2: The Miz and John Morrison over Jesse and Festus when Miz pinned Festus with a knee after Morrison rang the bell to trick Festus. That idea was fun, but this was largely a waste of time. Why is Jesse never allowed to work the match?

Match 3: Jeff Hardy over Triple H via rollup after Vlad-ference. This was solid-but-unspectacular, and again Jeff got to look like quite the star with the amount of offense he got in. It seemed to me that the crowd was strangely dead for the most of this match. Afterward, Trips and Jeff shake hands (Zuh? What happened to heel Jeff?), but Vlad lays them both out and shares tips on how to survive the winters in Siberia.

- Backstage, THE Brian Kendrick is a total dick to one of the crew members.

Match 4: THE Brian Kendrick and Ezekiel Jackson over Primo and Carlito when Zeke pinned Primo with a one-handed Uranage. THE Brian was particularly chippy today. This was too short to really take a lot out of it, but it did a nice job of portraying Zeke as a monster. That Uranage was pretty sick, too. Only gripe, as always, is why is it necessary to devalue the tag champs with a loss like this?

- We get another Kizarny vignette, and then a Big Show/UT feud recap.

- In an appropriately dark backstage area, Jeff Hardy (sans makeup) tells us that he's gonna win at Survivor Series. His crazy promo style is growing on me, and it does a nice job of masking his voice, too.

Match 5: James Mason (weighing 16 stone) over MVP via rollup after Khali distraction. I have no words left to vent how I feel about this whole shit.

Match 6: The Bella Twins over Victoria and Natalya when one of the Bella Twins rolled up Natty (or was it Vicky?). I have nothing nice to say about this. There is absolutely no reason why the no-talent no-looks Bella Twins be anywhere near the ring, much less getting a push.

Main Event Last Rites: There's a casket in the middle of the ring. What's up with the increased use of caskets nowadays? Has their price come down significantly? UT starts by reading out some creepy last rites before Big Show, Vickie, and Chavito come out. Oh, I know who goes in the casket now. Show tells UT that since he doesn't fear him, UT has no power over him. UT fucks with his mind to retaliate and Vickie winds up inside the coffin after some convenient darkness. Show feeds Chavo to the wolves (or just one, in our case) to rescue Vickie, and poor Chavito takes the Tombstone en route to being shut in the casket. End show.

** A pretty middling show, that didn't do enough on either the promo or the wrestling front in order to really hype the upcoming PPV. The dead crowd didn't help either.

Blech, terrible, terrible episode.

- Undertaker bores me to death (ha! a pun!). The same old "I'm gonna take your soul and send you straight to hell and blahblahblah". With Palumbo gone, it's time to re-do the motorcycle, Bad Ass gimmick again.

- The Bellas. I've seen enough already.

- MVP jobs to some pasty chubbo. Someone needs to whisper in his ear to tell him LET KHALI COME IN THE RING AND HIT YOU. OPPONENT GETS DQ'ED. YOU WIN. (FAKE) INCENTIVE CLAUSE KICKS IN! CRISTAL FOR EVERYONE.

- Psycho Jeff IS intriguing, though. Does he get the strap? Probably not. Does Kozlov? Maybe, but it would get hotshotted right back (Gotta get to 17 reigns, right Trips?). Decent match.. one of the few bright spots.

- R-Truth: "What's Up?!"
Crowd: "You Suck"
(repeat as needed).

- Has Jesse EVER pinned anyone?

- This "OMG, look at the power!" thing with Big Zeke. Picking someone up in a half-assed sidewalk slam isn't that impressive when the opponent weight about 220. Pick him up with one hand and throw him into the third row. That would be impressive. And Kendrick looks more toasted than RVD ever did.

- Kizarny. NO. Looks like a painted-up version of Jericho 1999. Are they really that hard-pressed for gimmicks?

I needed to vent. Smackdown was doing well until this bomb.

As for the dead crowd, you have to remember that this was taped straight after the previous week's show. We'd already seen all the wrestlers once that night. Also, we'd been told earlier on that Jeff Hardy vs HHH would be a title bout. You can imagine the groans when we were told a little later that in fact it wouldn't be: it was just a ploy to try to fire up the crowd for the second show.

Yes. Unfortunately, I believe it was either Hawkins or Ryder in a tag match.

You're alone on that one. Unless Taker starts chaining opponents to his bike and dragging them across the ramp, I can't see a significant reason to make him BikerTaker again.

I'm wizondering how the hell Kizarny is possibly going to deliver a live promo staying completely in character. Even in the vignettes he's pausing before every word to make sure he's getting it right. If WWE wanted a guy to speak gibberish, they should've just hired Delirious.
