TONIGHT! Wade Barrett will face The Big Show! WHY Wade Barrett has targeted The Big Show is still unknown. Also, Dolph Ziggler is the new #1 contender. Will we hear from Dolph or Edge? SmackDown is NOW!

WWE - The Champ Is Here!

Here's a preview for the show you're about to watch.

Opening credits - Do You Know Your Enemy? Opening pyro! Tonight, it's The Cutting Edge! Tonight, Edge's guest is Dolph Ziggler!

To kick off the night, Tony Chimel brings in Ricardo Rodriguez to introduce Alberto Del Rio. This week, Alberto Del Rio joins us in a white 60's Jaguar, as we look at your hosts, Team NXT: Josh Matthews, Michael Cole, and Matt Striker. Del Rio comes into the ring and grabs the mic, so it must be promo time!

"My name...my name is Alberto Del R-R-R-Rio! But you already know that. I know you people here in the South are a little bit slow. Hey, but I know that even like that, you know there's no one like me in Raw or in SmackDown. Hey, hey, hey, hey, take it easy. Don't get angry. It's not my fault. It's just my destiny. And in three weeks, in three weeks I'm going to destroy your dreams and your heroes' dreams and, just like I told Shawn Michaels on Raw, after I win the Royal Rumble, I will be known as the new Mr. Wrestlemania."

Interruption comes from R-Truth, who's on the wrong show. Truth stops mid-way to the ring to ask Birmingham, AL if they know what is up? "I'mma tell y'all what's up. Truth be told, three weeks to Royal Rumble and Del Rio has already lost his rabid mind. You see, let me talk to him for a minute. Let me explain something to you, Pancho. You see, you can't win Royal Rumble because you have a bunch of fancy cars. You can't win Royal Rumble because you have a very creepy, creepy, creepy-looking ring announcer, either. Or because of destiny. You see, a championship on the world's biggest stage is one thing you can't buy...or inherit. You got to own that on your own, buddy. Hey, and it's simple, you earn that by stepping up to the plate like a man...the man that you can't be...Lucy! And that's the truth!"

Here's another interruption, from "Dashing" Cody Rhodes, of all people. He's got his mic ready to go, but stops to check himself out first. "Ah, Alberto, Truth, it really is my pleasure to inform you that this year, 'dashing' is in at the Royal Rumble and everybody else, EVERYBODY ELSE is out! If you don't look like...well, if you don't look like me, you're going over the top rope and back to your ungroomed, un-dashing lifestyles. Seriously, guys, with...beauty comes experience, I'm 25 years old and I've already been in three of the Rumble matches. So take a good look, take a good look, THIS is the face that is going to main event Wrestlemania."

We have room for one more interruption, I guess, so here's Rey Mysterio with his own mic. "Yoyoyoyo, yo, let's get something straight. Winning the Royal Rumble isn't about looking like a Diva, Cody. And it isn't about destiny, Alberto. It's about what you're made of on the inside. It's about beating the odds and surviving. And you know something, that's what I've been doing my whole, entire life."

ADR: ReyReyReyRey, pobre Rey. No one wants to hear your inspirational stories. I'm going to destroy you, like the little dog you are.

Rey: There you are, right? Always coming back with some type of insult. Let me hit you with this one, Alberto. How many Royal Rumbles have you won? ECK! Zero! Nada! Cero! I've actually won a Royal Rumble...

Cody: Oh, Rey, you winning the Rumble was SOOO 2006 and like the fashion of 2006, the superstars are no different. You're out of style. And THAT'S what's up.

Truth: Oh, you want to hit me in the pinky toe and steal my catchphrase.

Rey: I think he just hit you with the pinky toe!

Truth: Is that what...is we stealing catchphrases, y'all? Ok, well, I've got a dashing catchphrase for you, Cody, and it goes like this...

Truth's catchphrase isn't a catchphrase at all, but it's a fist! And all four men go at it. That brings Teddy Long out to give us a thrown-together tag match. Rey and Truth face Alberto Del Rio and "Dashing" Cody Rhodes. Long calls a ref, because that match is next! Teddy Long dances, as we go to our first ad break of the night.

Ad break

R-TRUTH & REY MYSTERIO v. ALBERTO DEL RIO & "DASHING" CODY RHODES
We start with Rey and Cody locking up. Cody backs Rey into the corner and boots him in the gut. Side headlock and shoulderblock follow. Cody tries to hammer in the corner, but Rey fights back and slams Cody's head into the turnbuckle. Shoulder thrusts set Cody up for a corner seated dropkick. Cody tags out to ADR, as we pause for the "619" chant. Del Rio goes to work on Rey and hits a snapmare and soccer kick for 2. ADR sends Rey into the heel corner, but Rey fights out of that before getting sent to the outside. ADR gives chase and chucks Rey into the barricade and sends him back in for 2. Tag is made to Rhodes, who continues the punishment. Telegraphed kneedrop misses, but Cody stops Rey from climbing the ropes. Second-rope superplex is blocked and Cody goes down. Rey hits a top-rope crossbody block. Tags are made on both sides and Truth comes in on fire. Truth hits a big armdrag and falcon arrow for 2. Truth clotheslines Del Rio over and lowbridges a charging Rhodes. Rey hits an Asai moonsault on the heels to send us to our next break.

We come back with the heels on the offense against Truth. Cody hits an inverted suplex, but charges into a drop toehold. Truth slaps Cody IN THE FACE! NOT THE FACE!!! Truth takes out Del Rio, allowing Cody to take control with furious stomps. Tag is made and ADR gets a seated dropkick for 2. Back suplex gets 2 and we hit the chinlock. Tag back to Cody, who cuts off the hot tag. Russian legsweep gets 2, before Cody hits the body scissors. Truth hits Cody with an electric chair drop and both men are down. Tag is made to Rey, who hits the seated senton on Rhodes. Springboard crossbody gets 2. Cody tries for a corner charge and eats boot. Rey looks for the sunset flip, leading to a reversal sequence ending with ADR breaking it up. Truth takes him out with a dropkick, before Rhodes disposes of him. Cody looks for the Alabama Slam, but it's countered with a headscissors. Rey hits the 619 and Drops The Dime for the pin at about 15 minutes.

WINNERS: Rey Mysterio & R-Truth - Routine tag match. Good stuff.

Later tonight, The Big Show faces Wade Barrett. Plus, it's The Cutting Edge with guest Dolph Ziggler.

Ad break - Royal Rumble promo

Now it's time for Str8 Outta Brooklyn with JTG. "Yo! It's your boy, JTG! And welcome to another edition of Str8 Outta Brooklyn. Ch-yeah! CM Punk, I see you whoopin' them Nexus boys into shape...literally. Man, you just gonna beat them boys like that, to initiate them, word? You got Husky Harris looking more like Rusty Harris, with all that red on his back. Yo Husky, you need friends that, you need to holla' at'cha boy, cuz right now...(Holds up "Yo Killin Me Son" cardboard sign)...you killin' me, son. Dolph Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero, word, Vickie, she's just gonna push her man, she's just gon' give him that shove, word? That's how we rollin' these days? And Dolph, you just gon' give yo shorty all that power? Word? It's like that, son? Man, where's my cell phone, I need to call 911, cuz Dolph...(Holds up "Yo Killin Me Son" cardboard sign)...you killin' me, son. And THAT was Str8 Outta Brooklyn with JTG. Deuces!"

You killin' me, son, indeed. Good grief.

Your hosts are Josh Matthews, Michael Cole, and Matt Striker. They recap last week's Fatal 4-Way match, culminating with Wade Barrett's interference.

This leads us backstage, where the demoted Todd Grisham is standing with Wade Barrett. Barrett compares himself to Caesar, to the point that he grew so powerful that everyone had to conspire against him. Thus, Barrett has now come to own SmackDown. Barrett calls his attack a sign of respect, as he only aims for the most powerful men. At the end of the day, we will all hail Caesar.

Ad break

Ezekiel Jackson promo, showing the best of Big Zeke. He's coming soon to smackDown.

TRENT BARRETA v. DREW McINTYRE
Barreta doesn't get an entrance, showing he's probably cannon fodder again. Still, he showed me enough last time that he's worth more than apathy, so I'll give this one my attention. We get a replay of the last time these two met, where Barreta TOTALLY wiped out on a no-hands suicide dive. Even McIntyre admitted it was a good jump...after he wiped him out with the Future Shock, of course.

Barreta doesn't wait for McIntyre to get in the ring, as he knocks him off the apron. McIntyre charges in, but Barreta hammers away. Ref pulls him back, allowing McIntyre to hit a big boot. McIntyre hammers in the corner until the ref pulls him off. Drew moves to the outside and pulls Barreta out. He slams his head against the announce table and hits a big chop. Hilarious moment here, as Striker says "I don't get how Trent is disrespecting Drew," and McIntyre actually REACTS to it by giving Striker a "WTF" stare. HA! McIntyre brings Barreta back in and poses to the crowd, getting a mild face pop. Corner clotheslines bring Barreta down. McIntyre FRAMES THE DROPKICK! Kevin Nash must be proud! That gets 2. Time to hit the armbar. McIntyre looks for a German suplex, but Barreta lands on his feet. Barreta hits a single-leg dropkick for 2. Springboard move misses and McIntyre pounces with a belly-to-belly suplex. Barreta gives the thumbs down. He's looking to military press him out of the ring, but Barreta gets a sunset flip for the 3!

WINNER: Trent Barreta - A quick upset pin to advance the schizophrenic McIntyre angle.

The Big Show is walking to the ring. His match with Wade Barrett is next.

Ad break - Raw promo

Backstage, Trent Barreta's pretty proud of himself for his victory, but he gets AMBUSHED by Drew McIntyre! McIntyre gets in his face, but oh geez, wouldn't you know that Kelly Kelly's standing a few inches away? McIntyre pleads his case to Kelly, telling her that it's his competitive nature. Kelly tells him to grow up and storms out. McIntyre sells frustration.

THE BIG SHOW v. WADE BARRETT
Barrett has new music that has a snappy opening, but sounds pretty generic, otherwise.

Show charges in and pounds on Barrett. Here's a corner chop! Barrett gets a seated dropkick and knocks Show down, peg-by-peg. He goes to work on Show's leg. Cover gets nothing, so Barrett hits the leglock. Show counters by floating his leg over and kicking Barrett out of the hold. Barrett tries to charge in with a boot, but Show catches it and shoves him down. Show chops Barrett down and hits a clothesline. He calls for the chokeslam, but Barrett gets out of it, momentarily. Show looks for the chokeslam again, so Barrett goes to the eyes. Show wants it again, but here are HEATH SLATER AND JUSTIN GABRIEL! They're not wearing Nexus tights anymore and they're going to work on Big Show, so that'll end this one.

WINNER: The Big Show by DQ - Angle advancement.

Post-match, the triple team looks to be on, but out of nowhere, here's Ezekiel Jackson! Jackson and Show stare each other down, as Show fights off Slater and Barrett. Gabriel brings in a chair and Show punches it out of his hand. Show turns around and EATS A LARIAT FROM JACKSON! Slater delivers his finisher (sort of) and Jackson EFFORTLESSLY slams Show! Gabriel follows up with the 450 splash. Nexus, Version Barrett all pose in the center of the ring, as Barrett's music hits.

Ok, I'll go ahead and ask. How much longer IS Skip Sheffield out for, anyway?

Ad break

We see a replay of Barrett's Nexus wiping out Big Show, fairly single-handedly.

MICHELLE McCOOL (w/LAYLA) v. "THE GLAMAZON" BETH PHOENIX
Beth manhandles Michelle to start. Polish Hammer takes Michelle down, before a corner charge misses. Michelle eats an elbow, before she's able to trip up Beth and take control. Michelle focuses on the knee and hits elbows. Michelle continues focusing on the knee, before nearly getting rolled up. Beth fights her way up, but gets put down again. Michelle focuses on the knee, but gets shoved out of the ring with Beth's good leg. Slingshot suplex from Beth gets 2. Beth wants the Glam Slam, but Michelle's trick knee acts up and strikes Beth's knee. Michelle wants a kick, but it's nearly countered into the Glam Slam. Nearly, because Michelle's able to turn it into a victory roll, which Beth reverses herself for the 3!

WINNER: Beth Phoenix - A quick Divas match that didn't offend.

Later tonight, Edge welcomes Dolph Ziggler to The Cutting Edge.

Ad break - Top 50 Superstars of All-Time DVD promo

We are taped from Birmindham, AL, as we take a look at the first inductee to this year's HoF class, Shawn Michaels.

We go backstage to Teddy Long arguing with Vickie Guerrero. Teddy Long is unhappy with what Vickie did last week, but gets a phone call. It's about the Wade Barrett situation, so Long has to exit, leaving Vickie and Dolph alone. Vickie and Dolph vow to stay together, no matter what Edge may try tonight.

Kofi Kingston is on his way to the ring. We hear from him next.

Ad break

Kofi Kingston comes to the ring, as we take a look at last week's match with Dolph Ziggler, where Kofi FINALLY won the title. Kofi's got the mic and it's promo time!

"Man, after five long, hard months, I have fought, I have clawed, I have scratched, I have done everything in my power to get this title back. And now, I can stand before you and finally say that I am YOUR Intercontinental Champion once again! It feels good, man, it feels good, because even though Dolph Ziggler had Vickie Guerrero in his corner, I feel like I had every single one of you in mine, so thank you very much! Thank you! You see, I learned a lot of things about myself last week. The first thing I learned..."

Interruption comes from Jack Swagger, who's still a bit of a loose end. He comes to the ring and grabs a mic. "Kofi, you learned something. Good. I'm proud of you. But let me give you a new lesson, 2011 is the year of the American. The All-American. I'm gonna be raising the bar here on SmackDown, why don't you come join me up here? Let me give you a little All-American American American public service announcement. The anklelock is a dangerous position to be in. As you lie helpless on your stomach, panic sets in, and soon, so does humiliation, as you realize, you are about to tap out in front of the entire world."

Kofi: Look, Jack, you want the Intercontinental Title, right? Well, I want you to shut up. And why don't I do that, by beating you right now?

A referee separates them, and it looks like we have a match.

KOFI KINGSTON v. "THE ALL-AMERICAN AMERICAN" JACK SWAGGER: NON-TITLE MATCH
We start with a lock-up, with Swagger overpowering Kofi. Kofi fights back with kicks and rights. Kofi whips Swagger into the corner, but Swagger powers out of a corner charge and hits a running boot to the face, to send Kofi to the outside. That'll take us to our next ad break.

We come back with Swagger stomping away on Kofi. Swagger chokes in the corner and picks Kofi up for a big bodyslam. Time to hit the armbar. Swagger hits a corner clothesline and hits the running Vaderbomb for 2. Back to the armbar, before Swagger chucks him down by the hair. Swagger stomps away. Big hiptoss sets up another running Vaderbomb, but it misses. Swagger's corner charge misses and Kofi pounds in the corner. Swagger picks Kofi up, but Kofi nearly rolls him up for 2. Kofi looks for the S.O.S., which nearly gets countered into the Swagger Bomb. Kofi lands on his feet, but misses Trouble In Paradise, allowing Swagger to hit a belly-to-belly for 2. Swagger's corner charge eats boot and this time Kofi's able to hit the S.O.S. for the 3!

WINNER: Kofi Kingston - That feels like a bit of an anticlimactic blowout. Announcers are arguing over whether Swagger kicked out, so we may still get one more rematch between these two soon.

Coming up next, it's The Cutting Edge with guest Dolph Ziggler.

Ad break - Royal Rumble promo

Edge comes down to the ring for tonight's edition of The Cutting Edge. Edge hits the ring to a big pop, and grabs his mic to kick things off. "Welcome to The Cutting Edge! You know, last week, a lot of people didn't think I'd come out of my Last Man Standing match with Kane in one piece and...I barely did. But, by the end of that match, I was the last man standing. And I'm standing here this week. I'm standing here as the World Heavyweight Champion. Now...I go from facing one monster last week to another monster and by 'monster', I mean Vickie Guerrero. Yep, Vickie and her boyfriend, the new #1 contender to the World Heavyweight Championship, Dolph Ziggler."

That brings out Dolph and Vickie. Both Dolph and Vickie grab mics, as this could get either fun or loud. Let's see how things go.

Edge: Welcome to the show, both of you. I hope and I trust that we can be, uh, mature and professional about this, because Dolph...a little bit of controversy with your victory last week.

Vickie: There was no controversy. Last week, my boyfriend Dolph became the #1 contender. And at the Royal Rumble, he WILL be World Heavyweight Champion by beating YOU!

Dolph: Yeah, I am gonna beat him at the Rumble, you're right.

Edge: Ah, Vickie, Vickie, Vickie, Vickie. Just like old times, huh? Now that we're standing here this close, I mean, I see that look in your eye and I feel that dynamic floating towards me, but...I just gotta tell you that this ship has sailed, toots.

Dolph: Hey, if you're gonna insult my girlfriend the entire time, then we're just, we're just gonna leave. This show is over. Stop the camera.

Edge: Stop the camera? Whoa, hey, wait, Dolph, Dolph, Dolph! Listen, relax, ok? Relax. It's not like I called Vickie a man-eating beast. It's not like I said she snores in her sleep. It's not like I said you can go parasailing with a pair of her panties.

Vickie: Uh, you can't do that anymore!

Dolph: She's lost weight, Edge!

Edge: It's not like I said she makes that really weird noise whenever she does that thing...

Vickie: Hold on, excuse me! You know what? Let's get all of our garbage out there! For those of you that do not know, Edge and I were married a long, long time ago.

Dolph: Long time ago.

Vickie: I was young and naive and I was trying to discover who I was as a person inside. And everyday I live with the regret that I was married...to him.

Edge: Very young? Vickie, you're like ten years older than me and you're wearing a necklace that says "cougar"...

Dolph: She STILL looks this good, Edge. Listen, man, don't be jealous that she's gone from no class to first class. She's been a godsend to me. I don't know what I would do without Vickie in my life and YOU...how dare you? How dare you not appreciate everything she's done for you? She took you like a little...like a litle injured rescue dog, she took you in and she breathed life into you. Everyone said you'd never be champion again. Everyone said your career was over and she stood by your side. She resuscitated your entire career! And at the Royal Rumble, I'm gonna pull the plug and watch your entire title reign flatline to a finish.

Vickie: Aww, baby, me and you, we have a partnership, our love is true! And Edge...

Dolph: You didn't have that!

Vickie: Since this is your show, I brought you a little clip.

Edge: Oh, YOU brought a clip?

Vickie: Yes, I brought a clip to show you what a better man Dolph is. Because I know that if Dolph and I ever got married, he would never do this to me!

We get a clip from July 2008. Hey, it's the Edge/Vickie Guerrero wedding! And it's Edge making out with the wedding planner! And it's everything going to hell from there.

Edge: Ok, I think I sense where all of this hostility is coming from...

Vickie: IT WAS OUR WEDDING DAY!!!

Edge: Alright, Vickie, I understand. You know what, maybe you're right. Maybe Dolph IS more of a man than me.

Dolph: Maybe?

Edge: I mean, because cheating is a very serious thing and I'm pretty sure that my clip that *I* brought will attest to that. Roll it.

Oops! It's a clip from NXT, with Dolph making out with Kaitlyn. I knew they kept Kaitlyn employed for a reason. Vickie looks the way you might expect, as Dolph tries to explain himself.

Edge: Now, now, Dolph. Dolph, I recognized you and your little tie up there, but I couldn't recognize who that girl was and the reason being, because your head was blocking her face, because you were making out with her. However, I do think it might have been Vickie's NXT Rookie Diva, Kaitlyn. Vickie, did that look like Kaitlyn to you? What do you think?

We don't get an answer, because Dolph jumps Edge. He tries to make peace with Vickie, but Edge jumps him in return. Vickie yells "IT WAS OUR WEDDING DAY!" before slapping Edge. Edge tries to turn away and Vickie jumps him! Edge simply walks away, but stops himself. He makes the Spear Face, but stops himself. Vickie starts gloating, so Edge comes back and makes the Spear Face. Dolph pulls Edge out and chucks him into the barricade. He hits the Zig Zag onto the steel steps!

Show ends with Dolph and Vickie having a perfectly PG-rated make-out session.

FINAL THOUGHT

It's a good start towards building to what should be an awesome Edge/Dolph Ziggler match at the PPV. I'm looking forward to that one and it should wash the taste of that Edge/Kane feud out of my mouth.

So for those keeping score at home, Nexus (Version SmackDown) looks like Barrett, Slater, Gabriel, and Jackson. Meanwhile, Nexus (Version Raw) looks like Punk, Otunga, McGuillicutty, and Harris. Man, did Punk get the short end of that stick, or what?

Of course, this doesn't solve the root problem this show has. There's still zilch in the way of babyfaces and not only have you added more by bringing Nexus guys onto this show, but now you've added Jackson, who was originally getting brought onto this show because there weren't enough babyfaces!

This show needs faces badly.

I think I like "Original Nexus" and "Famous Nexus." Then, later, they can reunite as "Original Famous Nexus."

Nice to hear Barrett finally got his NXT challenge prize of his own entrance music.

I'm really, really tired of Syfy putting an ad in their bug for the ENTIRE FREAKIN' TWO HOURS (by which I mean, this is the second week I've seen it and that's more than enough for me to arrive at this opinions). I promise you I am NOT gonna watch "Being Human." Vince used to be pretty good at keeping stuff like this off his show; this seems to indicate he must have had to at least one concession to get SmackDown on Syfy.

I probably have more but, hell, that was like four hours ago.

    Nexus, Version Barrett all pose in the center of the ring, as Barrett's music hits.


:( - disagree with Justin at your peril!

My thought now is this has to be leading to some Nexus vs Nexus match. They'll likely run into each other at the Rumble, but that seems like a perfect match for WrestleMania. Maybe not even as much the timing or the storyline but the easy way to get a whole lot of people on the card in one match. It was mentioned over on F4 that sort of thing was being talked about, but it's still early and I believe Justin has equally likely (more likely!) resolution.


    Ok, I'll go ahead and ask. How much longer IS Skip Sheffield out for, anyway?


"Soon." Which could mean anything.

SmackDown really could use more faces. When Big Show ends up in tag matches against Barrett's Nexus, his team is going to have to be something iffy like Show/Kofi/Chris Masters/JTG because there isn't anyone else to use. Kaval wasn't going anywhere, but he at least did help make up the numbers, and they'd be helped by bringing over a Yoshi Tatsu or Primo and giving them a fresh start push to see if it worked. But Zeke probably still isn't ready to be that sort of help and is better off looking intimidating and doing little.

OK, we had the Vickie/Edge confrontation, now let's move Dolph up in the angle.

The Lovely Mrs. Tracker finally got to hear Kofi speak ... and was devastated that he has no accent at all. I however like his voice, even if his retort to Swagger was weak. Neither guy hit a homer with his mic time, but it's a nice feud to let simmer for a bit.

I think I've built up an allergy to Del Rio/Rey. It gives me no joy.

Seems a little early to give away the Show slam by Jackson, but it establishes him as the new monster. And I like his turn to Nexus even as I bemoan the latest lost face for the show.

I'm not sure how big the Big Show has been at his biggest, but he currently looks like he might be at his biggest. I'm a bad judge of monster weight. And Zeke slammed him ... not just slammed him but held him there, thought about it, then slammed him. Jesus the man is strong.

Edge's reaction face to each of Vicki's slaps was priceless. (and for the record, she is only 5 years older than him)

Nice to see Kaitlyn, AJ and Primo in those heady times of NXT3. And was that a BAM NEELY sighting in the '08 wedding clip?

And yes, SD! needs faces and re-turning Big Bad Zeke heel isn't the answer obviously.

McIntyre has really been working on his heel facial expressions and mannerisms (like stealing the "framing" of the dropkick) and that is a good thing.

I watched SD! online and they left the JTG bit out. I always enjoyed his singles matches...what happened to drop him below Trent Barretta on the ladder?

I'm kind of hoping that maybe Trent might get a real push here. The lack of faces on the show is an opportunity to do something significant with him, and the kid's got talent.

Truly this is my greatest message board achievement. You're either Nexus or you're the other Nexus.

I feel like Barrett's team should get to keep the Nexus music and name. CM Punk's guys can use his music and the "Genesis of McGillicuddy" name.


    My thought now is this has to be leading to some Nexus vs Nexus match. They'll likely run into each other at the Rumble, but that seems like a perfect match for WrestleMania. Maybe not even as much the timing or the storyline but the easy way to get a whole lot of people on the card in one match.

Yeah, I think the two Nexii will join together when it looks like they're about to square off a la WCW and ECW, and the whole thing was a plot to take over both shows where Barrett and Punk had to pretend to fight on TV instead of just splitting up because, you know ... plans.

May as well go for broke and say Sheamus is losing now because he's turning face, and Triple H will be the double Nexus mastermind who had Undertaker buried because he retired Shawn.



      Ok, I'll go ahead and ask. How much longer IS Skip Sheffield out for, anyway?


    "Soon." Which could mean anything.


I've read that Sheffield is supposed to join Darren Young's Superstars Nexus with Michael Tarver and Curt Hawkins.


    SmackDown really could use more faces. When Big Show ends up in tag matches against Barrett's Nexus, his team is going to have to be something iffy like Show/Kofi/Chris Masters/JTG because there isn't anyone else to use.


That would be hilarious. Big Show and Trent Barrett ready to take a stand. I guess during the Wrestlemania brand free-for-all they could give him some R-Truths/Daniel Bryan/Mark Henry support.


I thought this was a good, promising show. Quality opening tag, I guess Mysterio and Del Rio hadn't settled all their issues forever as we were told last week.

Ziggler looked very comfortable in the segment which was probably the most important thing for him as far as sticking near the top. Vickie Guerrero is fantastic and showed how much better the Jericho/Edge feud would've been if she was involved.

which would be quite the achievement and fast rise to the top.

I thought it was odd that they called Edge's kiss recipient The Wedding Planner but wouldn't say "Alicia Fox" even though it was quite clearly Alicia Fox Except Wearing Glasses. I thought this would be the perfect time for Alicia to address her life path from wedding planner to techno dancer to wrestler.

      "Soon." Which could mean anything.


    I've read that Sheffield is supposed to join Darren Young's Superstars Nexus with Michael Tarver and Curt Hawkins.

So, which Nexus is the Wolfpac and which one is Hollywood? (Although I find it interesting that both Nexus groups are heel factions. Of course, they're on separate shows).

It's especially odd since her own WWE.com bio acknowledges the connection (and explains her career choices):

    Introduced to the WWE Universe as the wedding planner for Edge & SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero’s nuptials, Fox has quickly made a name for herself – albeit one she may not want.

    With an extremely hands-on approach to planning the wedding, Fox was caught on video in Edge’s hotel room, where the two exchanged a passionate kiss – and ruined the reception on SmackDown.

    Fox, distraught by the mess between Edge and Vickie, moved her business to the UK where she met a talented up-and-comer, DJ Gabriel. Now, after honing her craft on SmackDown following the 2009 Supplemental Draft, Fox was ready to show off her talents on Raw and vie to become one of Monday night's top Divas.

    She did just that in the summer of 2010 when she captured the Divas Championship. The title reign proved that Fox refuses to be forgotten.

      :( - disagree with Justin at your peril!


    Truly this is my greatest message board achievement. You're either Nexus or you're the other Nexus.

    I feel like Barrett's team should get to keep the Nexus music and name. CM Punk's guys can use his music and the "Genesis of McGillicuddy" name.


      My thought now is this has to be leading to some Nexus vs Nexus match. They'll likely run into each other at the Rumble, but that seems like a perfect match for WrestleMania. Maybe not even as much the timing or the storyline but the easy way to get a whole lot of people on the card in one match. It was mentioned over on F4 that sort of thing was being talked about, but it's still early and I believe Justin has equally likely (more likely!) resolution.


    Yeah, I think the two Nexii will join together when it looks like they're about to square off a la WCW and ECW, and the whole thing was a plot to take over both shows where Barrett and Punk had to pretend to fight on TV instead of just splitting up because, you know ... plans.

    May as well go for broke and say Sheamus is losing now because he's turning face, and Triple H will be the double Nexus mastermind who had Undertaker buried because he retired Shawn.



        Ok, I'll go ahead and ask. How much longer IS Skip Sheffield out for, anyway?


      "Soon." Which could mean anything.

    ends up in tag matches against Barrett's Nexus, his team is going to have to be something iffy like Show/Kofi/Chris Masters/JTG because there isn't anyone else to use.









If there is a Nexus on RAW, a Nexus on Smackdown and a Nexus on Superstars, it means one thing: Nexus Team Challenge Series.

Where is Tarver? People will remember him because he had a good look and stuck around awhile, is anyone going to remember Skip Sheffield?

I'd hope he's in their marketing department designing shirts. Run-NXT, nXt, and all the others... I'd believe it if you told me he's responsible for the sketchy NXT shirt.

Actually, the most shocking choice for GM would be Eddie.(WHAT? Don't you dare tell me they're above trying shit like that....) Anyways, I can't but help think it's going to be Eric Bischoff again.
