TONIGHT! Edge faces Alberto Del Rio one-on-one in tonight’s main event! Will we get any build-up towards Edge’s World Title match at Survivor Series? Plus, Dolph Ziggler and Kaitlyn were caught in mid-make out session on NXT. Does Vickie Guerrero pursue vengeance? SmackDown is NOW!

WWE – The Champ Is Here

Opening Credits – Do You Know Your Enemy? Opening pyro! We are taped from Bridgeport, CT!

This match has been hyped all week as the main event for the show, so the fact that it’s going on first has my Spidey Sense tingling. Michael Cole already gets on my bad side for disparaging and making fun of Ricardo Rodriguez. You do NOT make fun of that haircut! Rodriguez can barely make his intro, because Edge starts advancing towards him and backs him out of the ring. This week, Alberto Del Rio joins us with a black Rolls Royce. However, someone forgot to cue Christian’s pyro! FOR SHAME! We get a clip from last week showing Edge’s run in with Ricardo Rodriguez and Edge winning the match with the awesome Electric Chair spear.

We start with a lock-up and wrestling sequence, which Edge gets the better of by dragging ADR out of the ring. Edge follows up with an axe handle from the apron. He drops ADR on the barricade and continues the offense on the outside. ADR gets rolled back in and Edge stomps away, stopping for a bit to pose for the crowd. We hit the armbar. ADR fights back, but gets backed into the corner. Ref separates the two and Edge whips Del Rio into the opposite corner. Corner charge eats steel post, though. Del Rio chucks Edge into the steel post for good measure to take us to our first ad break of the night.

We come back with Alberto hitting the armbar. Edge rises up and fights out of it. He gets a sunset flip for 2. ADR hits a nice arm breaker for 2 and continues to focus on the arm. He works the arm over on the ropes, as Edge falls to the outside. ADR follows and hits some kicks before smashing the arm onto the barricade. Del Rio grabs Edge by the hair and tosses him back in for a quick near-fall. Back to the armbar. Edge rises to his feet and starts hammering away. Edge goes for a back body drop, but gets a loud kick in the chest. ADR charges in, but jumps into nothing in particular and falls to the outside. Both men are down. Del Rio quickly bounces up and tries to run back in, but Edge meets him with a dropkick, sending him back to the outside. Edge rolls Alberto back in and climbs the turnbuckles, but ADR crotches him. Edge knocks Del Rio down and hits a top-rope cross body for 2. Edge hits a flying forearm, a clothesline, and a pancake for 2. Impaler is blocked and ADR looks for the double underhook, but Edge finds the ropes. Edge-O-Matic is reversed into the German suplex for 2. Del Rio goes for a fireman’s carry, but Edge slips out and hits the Impaler for 2. Crowd chants “Spear”, as Edge climbs the turnbuckles again, but ADR quickly bounces up and hits the pop-up enziguiri! Edge gets his foot on the ropes before the three count. ADR starts losing his cool, causing him to come off the ropes and run right into a big boot. Edge makes the Spear Face and…AWW SHIT! Nexus’s music hits and all the Nexus members (minus Wade Barrett and John Cena) rush the ring and ambush both guys. That’s 13 minutes of my life I’ll never get back.

WINNER: No Contest - Thanks, WWE, for hyping this match all week only to deliver THAT finish. Go to hell.

Post-match, Edge and Del Rio are dispatched, as the crowd shits all over this finish. Otunga takes the mic. Promo time. Blow me. “Last time we came to SmackDown, we dominated! This time, we’re taking over! Hey, you’re either Nexus or you’re against us!”

Big Show opts for “against us”, as his music hits. Show stops in the middle of the aisle, having learned from his last encounter with Nexus. He waves over some help and gets it in the form of Rey Mysterio and Kane. The three of them rush the ring and they, along with Edge, clear out Nexus. (ANGLE ALERT: Alberto Del Rio stood on the apron and watched the whole thing, refusing to get his hands dirty.) Nexus retreats, as SmackDown stands tall. Hit some shitty Green Day music!

You know, they COULD have just delivered SmackDown promos with the tagline “Nexus plans invasion”, instead of hyping a one-on-one match that they never planned to deliver an ending to. Just saying, is all.

Ad break – Raw promo. promo.

Replay of what we just saw a few seconds ago.

GM Theodore Long isn’t about to take any Nexus nonsense lying down. He comes out to the ramp and books the Nexus against Kane, Alberto Del Rio, The Big Show, Edge, and Rey Mysterio for a 10-man tag.

Your hosts are Todd Grisham, Michael “I’m EVERYWHERE” Cole, and Matt Striker. The hosts wonder where Wade Barrett is and why he isn’t here.

We get footage of Dolph Ziggler and Kaitlyn caught in mid-tryst from NXT and Vickie Guerrero’s subsequent cake job. And thus, Dolph comes to the ring without Vickie. Oh darn.

Match starts with Dolph charging in and hammering away. JTG fights back with some mounted punches until the ref separates them. JTG goes for a corner charge and eats a boot to the face. Dolph hits a hangman’s neckbreaker for 2. He smears JTG’s face into the canvas and starts booting him around. JTG fights back and hits a dropkick. Corner charge misses and Dolph capitalizes with the Zig Zag to supposedly end this one, but Dolph pulls him up at 2. He opts for the Sleeper Hold instead and that’ll end JTG’s night at a quick 2 and a half minutes.

WINNER: Dolph Ziggler - SQUASH! Anyone else get the feeling that this is the future for Tyson Kidd and/or David Hart Smith?

Post-match, Kaitlyn runs down to the ring. She walks into the ring looking for some celebration time, but OWWW!!! That splitting in my ears must mean that Vickie Guerrero’s out with a mic. She obviously takes umbrage at this and knocks Kaitlyn down. Referees separate them, as Dolph throws up his arms and goes “What is this?”

Later tonight, The Dashing Ones collide! A Triple Threat match features “Dashing” Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre, and MVP all facing off, with the winner facing Dolph Ziggler for the IC title next week. Plus, 10-man action between SmackDown and Nexus.

Ad break – Knucklehead DVD promo. Raw promo. WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011 promo.

We get a recap of the Dolph Ziggler squash and the post-match antics that we just saw. That takes us backstage to Teddy Long with Hornswoggle. Vickie Guerrero interrupts and demands JUSTICE! Teddy Long books her and Kaitlyn in a match tonight. Oh…that’s not going to end well, is it?

Elsewhere backstage, Nexus delivers a Grade A beatdown to Rey Mysterio. Jumpin’ Jiminy Glick on a Cracker, is Rey taking ANOTHER vacation? So much for old dead guy and tiny luchadore (tm Matt Tracker) Well, at least no one made a lawn dart out of poor Rey this time.

Ad break.

Backstage, Nexus celebrate their grand accomplishments, as Josh Matthews cuts in. Otunga explains that Wade Barrett’s out in the UK visiting friends and family and that Nexus will join him next week. He says that this is a chance to show that Nexus is about more than Barrett and John Cena and that they took out Rey because they can. And thus, the odyssey of Starscream Otunga continues.

We go back to Grisham, Striker, and Cole. Cole hammers the plot point home, because subtlety is for suckers.

MVP comes out with the ticking clock intro, but with brand new music and it sounds like something pulled out of the R-Truth scrap pile. We get footage of the devastating breakup of The Dashing Ones.

Match starts with The Dashing Ones mouthing off to each other. Cody tries to catch MVP off-guard, but gets a belly-to-belly throw for his troubles. MVP hammers away on McIntyre and takes Rhodes down with a drop toehold and a running knee to the back of the head. MVP backs the heels off, as The Dashing Ones make a temporary truce. HEEL UNITY~! wins the day, as McIntyre and Rhodes double team MVP. Cody gets cocky and decides to run the ropes, as McIntyre out-heels him and pulls the ropes down, sending Rhodes crashing to the outside. Drew chases Cody on the outside and slams him down on the steel ramp. McIntyre mouths off to Rhodes, as we go to our next ad break.

We come back with Drew beating down MVP in the corner with Rhodes still on the outside. Drew takes MVP down with a short clothesline for 2. We hit the armbar. McIntyre and MVP exchange blows, neither man aware that Cody Rhodes is climbing the turnbuckles. Once Drew takes MVP down, he turns around and eats a missile dropkick from Cody Rhodes, sending McIntyre to the outside. Cody decides to take over on beating down MVP. He goes to work with a front suplex and knee drop for 2. Time to hit the chinlock. MVP hits an Electric Chair backdrop to get out of that hold. Rhodes is up first and he knocks McIntyre off the apron before hitting a Russian leg sweep on MVP for 2. Corner whip is reversed, but an MVP kick misses. Rhodes hits an ugly neckbreaker to take control again. MVP rolls out and Cody chases, but he takes a quick pit stop to chuck McIntyre into the barricade. Rhodes rolls back in and demands a count, but there are no count-outs in a Triple Threat match (at least for tonight, anyway). Cody climbs the turnbuckles, but Drew crotches him. McIntyre clubs away on the prone Rhodes and goes for a second-rope superplex, but it’s time for a Tower of Doom spot! MVP runs back in and gets the back suplex on McIntyre, who hits the superplex on Rhodes. MVP recovers quickly and tries to cover, getting 2’s on both men. MVP is a house afire and hits a suplex on McIntyre and pancakes Rhodes. Facebuster (NOT THE FACE!!!) on Rhodes sets up the Ballin’ Elbow, but MVP runs right into McIntyre. He tries to chuck MVP into the post, but gets thrown in himself. Facebuster for McIntyre and HE’LL fall victim to the Ballin’ Elbow instead. Playmaker is blocked and McIntyre wipes MVP out with a clothesline. McIntyre wants the Future Shock, but that leaves him wide open for the Beautiful Disaster! Rhodes charges MVP, but gets dumped to the outside. MVP hits a running boot on McIntyre and that’ll get the win at 13 and a half minutes.

WINNER: MVP - It can’t touch the awesome three-way from last Friday, but this was a pretty good Triple Threat match in itself. Oh, and Cole suddenly hates MVP arbitrarily too, for those keeping score at home.

Later tonight, it’s hot and steamy 10-man action.

Ad break – Wrestlemania XXVII promo

We get clips from earlier tonight that set up this abomination.

Well, the only thing worse than this match is the commentary. Can we PLEASE put a muzzle on Michael Cole? Oh, Vickie wins with a botched Ric Flair pin. How anyone can botch that is beyond me, but there it is.

WINNER: Vickie Guerrero - Let us never speak of this again.

Stand Up For WWE segment. I’ll be shocked if this continues next week now that the election’s over.

Later tonight, SmackDown meets Nexus with Kofi Kingston subbing in for Rey Mysterio.

Ad break – WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011 promo.

Backstage, MVP talks about his victory to Kaval. Kelly Kelly stops by to congratulate MVP and walks away. That split-second of a distraction is all that the Nexus needs to deliver another beatdown. Thanks for showing up, Kaval! Here, have a beating from two guys that LOST to you and, yet, will receive a better push than you.

Masters doesn’t get an entrance, showing how much his stock has dropped.

Reks and Masters hammer at each other, leading to Masters dumping Reks over the top. Reks catches Masters coming back in and shoves him into the steel post. Masters is rolled back in and Reks hammers away. Already time for a resthold? Sure, why not? Masters comes back with chops and a flying shoulderblock. Clotheslines follow before Masters hits the WORLD’S SLOWEST STINGER SPLASH! Ye gods! (Grisham: “Masters with a head of steam!”) Masters hits a spinebuster for 2. He can’t lock in the Masterlock and Reks hits the Burning Hammer for the pin at about 3 minutes and change.

WINNER: Tyler Reks - I realize SmackDown is running low on babyfaces, but I still want Masters off my TV. Reks showed a whole lot of nothing outside of his kick-ass finisher.

Coming up next, SmackDown faces Nexus in the main event.

Ad break – Knucklehead DVD promo

WWE Smack of the Night – The Nexus invasion from earlier tonight.

The Nexus make their entrance, followed by Team SmackDown. We get clips of Kofi Kingston’s stint on Ghost Hunters. Alberto Del Rio joins us again in his black Rolls Royce. He STILL doesn’t get Christian’s pyro and he gets intro’d by Tony Chimel. Cole is OUTRAGED by this, even though he talked about how much he couldn’t stand Ricardo Rodriguez not even TWO HOURS AGO. (A little consistency is all I ask for.) Kane’s entrance will take us to our next…

Ad break

We start with Kofi Kingston and Michael McGillicutty, in an interesting pairing of former NXT Pro and Rookie. McGillillilllilli…oh, screw it…McG hammers away on Kofi in the corner. Ref separates the two, allowing Kofi to take control with his own onslaught in the corner. High dropkick follows and he gets a 1 off of that. Tag is made to Big Show, who hits his big chops before he mouths off to the Nexus corner (To Slater: “I’ll knock the red out of you, boy!”). Tag is made to Edge, who stomps away at McG in the corner. He nails McG with a corner charge, but McG’s able to take control and tag out to Justin Gabriel. Edge looks for a back drop, but Gabriel floats over and looks for a kick to the head, which misses, allowing Edge to hit his own spinning heel kick for 2. Gabriel hangs Edge on the ropes for a quick 2 before tagging out to Husky Harris. Harris hammers away in the corner. He whips Edge into the ropes and hits a cross body for 2. Slater is tagged in and he stomps away. Slater chokes Edge on the ropes and stomps him again. Time to hit the chinlock. Edge is able to pancake Slater. Striker’s pointing out that Del Rio’s not reaching for the tag, because, once again, subtlety is for suckers. Tag is made to Big Show and he cleans house on Slater. Corner avalanche hits, before Show runs the ropes and accidentally knocks Del Rio off the apron. Tag gets made to Kofi and Show whips Kofi into Slater in the corner, allowing Kofi to hit his corner punches. This week, Kofi gives us 5 corner punches. European uppercut will knock Slater out of the ring, as Del Rio takes a walk. We’re down to 4-on-5 to take us to our last ad break of the night.

We come back with Slater hammering away on Kofi in the corner. Corner charge eats boot and Kofi climbs the ropes and hits a frog cross body block for 2. Jumping clothesline hits. Nexus tries to rally with heel tactics, but that only allows Kofi to backdrop Slater onto Gabriel and Harris on the outside. Kofi follows up with a pescado on all three guys. Kofi comes back in and gets distracted by Otunga, allowing Slater to waffle Kofi and knock him face-first into the announce table. Slater finally tags out to Gabriel, who tosses Kofi back in for a near-fall. Gabriel stomps away and tags Otunga. Otunga stomps away in the corner and bashes Kofi into the apron. His moveset thus exhausted, it’s time to hit the chinlock. Otunga tags out to McG, who works over Kofi in the corner before tagging out to Harris. Harris stomps away and tags back out to Gabriel. Gabriel goes back to the chinlock. Kofi fights out of it, but Gabriel drags him back to the Nexus corner and tags Otunga. Bodyslam from Otunga, as Kofi continues to fight back. Otunga hits another bodyslam before tagging out to Gabriel, who comes in with a senton. Tag back out to Slater, who hits a kneedrop for 2. Tag back out to McG, who hits a dropkick for 2. Gabriel tags back in and whips Kofi into the corner. Corner charge hits, but Kofi keeps trying to come back and he hits a back suplex. Kane tags himself in, to the chagrin of Edge and Show, as Nexus stops in their tracks. Otunga tries to talk things out with the Big Red Monster, probably trying to remind him of what happened with the Buried Alive match. Kane opts for fisticuffs, wiping out Otunga and the rest of Nexus. Side slam hits. Flying clothesline takes Otunga down. The GOOZLE brings in Slater and Gabriel, but Big Show takes them out of the equation. Kane decides to thank Show by wiping him out with a chokeslam. Some gratitude. Kane turns around and knocks Otunga down with a big boot. He looks for the chokeslam, but Edge tags himself in. Edge stares Kane down before hitting Otunga with the Edge-O-Matic. Edge charges in, but Kane grabs him with a GOOZLE! Edge slips out of the chokeslam and takes Kane down with the spear! He makes a quick Spear Face before hitting Otunga with the spear to end Nexus’s night on a losing note at nearly 20 minutes.

WINNERS: Team SmackDown - Well, that doesn’t say much for Otunga as a leader if he couldn’t lead Nexus to a win over a SmackDown team that was basically fighting itself.

Post-match, Kane stares down Edge from the ramp, still reeling from the spear. Show ends with Kane’s angry mug.


Getting past the initial annoyance of the opening non-finish (and it was VERY annoying), this wasn’t a terrible show. The 10-man main event was fun and the Triple Threat match was good stuff. Can’t say I cared too much for the squashes or the hideous Vickie Guerrero/Kaitlyn match, so hopefully next week sees less of that nonsense.

Until next week.

This is the way it should be. I'm sure Randy Moss gets that a lot too.

I had no problem with Kaitlyn in this match, I think she did about as well as anyone could in a match against Vickie. The thing that really pissed me off watching this was how Vickie used her Game Genie Invincibility Code throughout the match.

Even if Kaitlyn is a rookie, this is still a wrestler against a non-wrestler. There's no way a manager/referee/what-have-you should take 5000000 kicks to the stomach and then stand straight up and power down the wrestler to pin them.

I loved the fact Striker was able to use Husky Harris' real name in a sentence and make it sound kayfabe.
I have come around to accepting Dolph Ziggler as a solid worker.
If Cole can be on every show I demand equal time for Kaitlyn!!!
Tyler Reks and Chris Masters, SD was really mining the dregs of the roster this week.

This week on WWE Transformers:

With Megatron away on a tour of Cybertron, Starscream leads the Decepticons on an attack of Autobot City, but gets defeated. Will Starscream have to answer for this embarrassing failure next week?

Since Nexus helped Kane bury Undertaker, and they attacked someone who he is facing at Survivor Series, why would he get upset with the Nexus attack?

Cole hating that stupid 2006 "Ballin'!" catchphrase makes him officially the hippest guy in WWE. His Vickie/Kaitlyn commentary was the continued greatness of his NXT commentary, with a great match callback to Vickie almost puking on NXT...and like a pro Kaitlyn keeps attacking the weakened body part. Sadly no Atomic Wedgie Bomb and the match was even more horrible than Vickie/Kaitlyn I.

I felt that WWE Transformers thread got a bit out of hand, this is a nice simple return to the classic greatness.

They seem to be really half-assing the John Cena is a member of Nexus thing. He still hasn't put on the shirt and the announcers said all members were there except Wade Barrett----um, aren't you forgetting someone?
Maybe he was there and WE CAN'T SEE HIM. (Sorry)

The Dolph/Vickie/Kaitlyn triangle is the opposite of Crash TV: It's interminable, and I again questiom what Dolph gets from the relationship. She seems to have no pull as the Special Consultant to the show. It certainly didn't help against Kofi and now Bryan. The midcard faces to challenge him seem slim.

I like Rex so far.
