TONIGHT! We're two weeks away from the Royal Rumble! Will we find out if someone other than Alberto Del Rio is entered? Plus, will Edge retaliate for last week's attack from Dolph Ziggler? And will Wade Barrett bring in a new guy to counter CM Punk's new guy? SmackDown is NOW!

The Champ is NOT here, as we go straight to a video package of last week's happenings with Wade Barrett and Big Show.

No opening credits this week, as we go straight to the arena, as Wade Barrett's music hits. It sounds like a remixed version of the theme he used last week and it sounds a little more palatable this time. Wade Barrett leads Heath Slater, Justin Gabriel, and Ezekiel Jackson to the ring. All four men take mics, as it's promo time!

Barrett: Ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to announce that the Big Show will NOT be here this evening. So instead, I thought we'd take this opportunity to introduce ourselves to the SmackDown audience. Now, first of all, I'm Wade Barrett. And for the last six months, I've assisted in revolutionizing Monday Night Raw as the leader of the Nexus. Now...that was, of course, before I was summarily dismissed by the group. But since that day, I've come to recognize the error of my ways, because the Nexus should never have been just about me, it should have been about the entire group. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what THIS is all about. THIS...is The Corre.

Jackson: My name is Ezekiel Jackson. For weeks, Teddy Long has been promoting my imminent arrival on SmackDown. I'm definitely a proud member of the SmackDown roster, but I'm extremely proud to be a member...of The Corre.

Slater: My name is Heath Slater. I'm the One-Man Rock Band, bay-bee! And one reason why Nexus was so dominating was because of me! And trust me when I say this...you haven't seen nothing yet.

Gabriel: My name is Justin Gabriel. And I'm from Capetown, South Africa, but from now on, I will call SmackDown my home. And these guys, The Corre, is my family. And now you guys can see me every Friday night delivering the most spectacular move in the WWE. The sternum-crushing 450 splash.

Barrett: Now for those who witness what the original Nexus was capable of, the destruction and the chaos that we caused, mark my words, it will pale in comparison to what The Corre will achieve here...

Interruption comes from Teddy Long, who wastes no time, as he has a mic of his own.

Long: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Just a minute. Now let me stop this before it goes any further. Now first of all, I'm not naive, ok? Now, you know, I know sometimes things happen...that I might not like. I recognize that. But what the four of you need to understand is, before you come out making grand stands about taking out everything you see, that I AM the General Manager and I AM in charge. Now, if the four of you are going to start playing outside the rules, we got a problem, and what the means...YOU got a problem.

Barrett: Teddy, what's with the hostilities? I mean, we're fully aware of who you are, and in fact, we actually respect you as an authority figure here on SmackDown. You see, The Corre, when we come here...we want to assist and we thought you'd be happy to see us here, 'cause after all, we came here on your watch. I mean, very shortly, all four of us are going to be competing in the Royal Rumble. We're going to be representing SmackDown.

Long: Well, let me say this...

Barrett: Teddy, let me continue.

Long: Alright.

Barrett: If we're representing SmackDown, it's because we want to work WITH you, not against you. Teddy, you're going to go down in history as the General Manager who presided over this show when Wade Barrett, Ezekiel Jackson, "The One-Man Rock Band" Heath Slater, and Justin Gabriel came together as a group, as The Corre.

Long; Well, you can call yourselves the Nina, the Pinta, or the Santa Maria for all I care. Now I saw what you did on Raw. Now let me ask you something. Do I look like I was born yesterday? You think that I believe all this stuff that you're trying to sell me and the WWE Universe about working together and all that? Uh-uh, no. And you think I'm just gonna stand and let you lead these men?

Barrett: Hey! Just hang on a second! I never said anything about leading these men! When it comes to The Corre, there is no leader. THIS is about equals.

Long: Well, that's good. Now here's another thing you need to learn. I am NOT an anonymous General Manager. I am NOT some chirping computer. Now I saw what you and the Nexus did on Raw, but you will NOT bring that to my show, just because you got the numbers. Now last week, you ganged up on the Big Show, and that's the first time that you EVER came together here on SmackDown. And if you try that nonsense again, it will be the LAST time, do I make myself clear?

Jackson: Teddy, Teddy, Teddy, Teddy, Teddy...Teddy. We're extremely disappoitned that you didn't welcome us here to SmackDown with...with an open mind. WE can take SmackDown to a whole new level.

Long: Hey, we can all be cool, playa. As long as the four of you play within the rules, but if you don't, the only room I have for negotiating is...you can either like SmackDown or you can leave it. Holla holla, playa.

Long's music hits as he exits the ring. The Corre huddle up to discuss what just happened, but it's suddenly cut off by Alberto Del Rio's music. And here's Alberto Del Rio arriving in a 2000 Bentley Turbo. ADR has a mic in hand, but first, he stops to bask in Christian's pyro.

ADR: Heyheyheyhey, I know you guys are new here in SmackDown, so I'm going to introduce myself. My name...MY NAME IS ALBERTO DEL RIO! But you already know that. And you guys, you guys are welcome here in SmackDown. But there's something you need to know. THIS...this is my show. And I'm the man who is going to win the Royal Rumble, just...just because it's my destiny.

That's a brief statement, as we go to our first ad break. We'll come back with Alberto Del Rio facing R-Truth. WHAT? AGAIN?

Ad break

We come back with the ring cleared of The Corre and Ricardo Rodriguez introducing Alberto Del Rio for our first match.

ALBERTO DEL RIO v. R-TRUTH
Truth's 0-3 against Del Rio so far, so if he loses again, I would HOPE this would be the end of this one-sided feud. Truth asks Tulsa, OK if something is up.

We start with the lock-up taking both guys to the corner. ADR gets a cheap shot and hammers in the corner. He whips Truth to the opposite corner and Truth knocks him down with a clothesline. The fight goes to the outside, where Truth keeps the offense going. Back in the ring, Truth covers for 2. Truth hits the armbar, as we quickly go backstage where Teddy Long's been knocked out! Security and medics are all over the scene and so are Vickie Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler, as paramedics are called. Back in the ring, Del Rio gets whipped into the corner and Truth hits a flying forearm. He follows up with a top rope 'rana. Truth clotheslines ADR over to send us to our next ad break.

We come back with Del Rio working over Truth. Corner charge eats boot, but Del Rio catches Truth going up and pulls him down. Del Rio continues the offense, as we learn that EMT's have arrived backstage. Del Rio hits the chinlock. Truth comes back with rights, but is caught with a drop toehold for 2, as we go backstage to see Teddy Long getting stretchered in a neck brace. Back in the ring, Del Rio connects with a soccer kick. Truth comes back with a clothesline and dropkick. Truth hits the Falcon Arrow for 2. Del Rio comes back by shoving Truth into the corner and connecting with the corner enziguiri for 2. ADR wants the underhook, so Truth shoves him into the corner and hits an armdrag. Truth runs the ropes and Rodriguez grabs the leg. Truth goes after him like an idiot, allowing Del Rio to guillotine the arm. Del Rio swoops in and gets the swinging jujigatime for the tap out.

WINNER: Alberto Del Rio - Can we please find new opponents for these two guys? Enough already with this match!

Post-match, we go to the outside of the arena to see Teddy Long getting loaded into the ambulance. We see JTG, Rosa, and Hornswoggle on the scene. Thanks for showing up, guys! The ambulance drives off.

Ad break

Backstage, Vickie Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler walk into their office to find The Corre. The group pleads innocence and Barrett offers assistance. Vickie decides to take this oppotunity to book one of The Corre members against Edge.

Your hosts are Josh Matthews, Michael Cole, and Matt Striker. We find out, of course, that with Teddy Long dispatched, Vickie Guerrero is in charge. We segue into the Royal Rumble video package.

Later tonight, Rey Mysterio will face "Dashing" Cody Rhodes.

Ad break - WWE Vaulting Entrance Ring! Man, I'd KILL to see John Cena make a jump like that IN REAL LIFE! And dig that Mega Python vs. Gatoroid ad!

LAYLA (w/MICHELLE McCOOL) v. "THE GLAMAZON" BETH PHOENIX
Last week, we got Beth and Michelle, so logically, we now move into Beth and Layla.

Match starts with both women in the corner, as Layla tries to kick and move. She wants a whip, but gets none of it. Layla jumps right into a giant swing. She hits a shoulderblock for a quick near-fall. Layla shoves Beth into the corner and gets an impressive Tornado DDT! Layla keeps the offense coming and covers for 2. Layla hits the armbar, which Beth powers out of! She drops Layla on her back and both women are down, as Cole keeps trying to derail the commentary...and he succeeds. Sigh...the spirit of Tony Schiavone is alive and well. Beth hits clotheslines and a slingshot suplex for 2. Corner charge eats elbow. Layla wants the Lay Out, but Beth powers her into a backbreaker. Glam Slam will finish this one easily.

WINNER: Beth Phoenix - Good match, for the short time it was given.

Rey Mysterio's on his way to the ring. He faces "Dashing" Cody Rhodes next.

Ad break - WWE In Your Corner vignette

Stand Up For WWE received a 2010 Mashable Award. Anyone else notice that they stopped talking about this two weeks after the elections ended? And they wonder why fans are so cynical.

REY MYSTERIO v. "DASHING" CODY RHODES
Match starts with both men in the corner and Cody gets control. He knocks Rey down with a clothesline, but gets a boot in the chin. Rey hits a headscissors and boots a Rhodes corner charge. Rhodes stops that flurry with a kick to the knee. He removes Rey's kneepad and stomps the exposed knee, which only Matthews picks up on because Cole and Striker are blathering on about the Rumble and NOT THE MATCH! Rhodes works on the knee and we hit the leglock. Rey leapfrogs a corner whip and Cody dumps him, bar-room style. Rey dodges a baseball slide and he drop toeholds Cody into the steel steps in a sloppy sequence. Back in the ring, Rey hits a top rope seated senton for 2. Whip is reversed, but Rey's still able to hit a springboard crossbody block. Rhodes is able to reverse a clothesline into a Russian legsweep for 2. Cody wants a sunset flip and Rey tries to slide out and hit his kick to the face. Cody has it scouted and ducks it, but can't avoid the seated dropkick. Rey hits another seated dropkick and sets up the 619. 619 hits! NOT THE FACE!!! Top-rope splash finishes in less than 4 minutes.

WINNER: Rey Mysterio - Way too short. Both guys can do so much better with more time.

Post-match, Cody calls for a medic! That 619 busted his nose, you know.

Your hosts are Josh Matthews, Michael Cole, and Matt Striker. They throw it to the demoted Todd Grisham, who has an update on Teddy Long, but he's interrupted by Alex Riley. The Miz is here, as Cole wets himself. The Miz is here, because...well, just because, that's why. God, SHUT UP, COLE!

Later tonight, Edge faces a member of The Corre.

Ad break - Best of Raw 2010 Blu-Ray/DVD promo. Man, I miss Batista.

Backstage, the medics are checking on "Dashing" Cody Rhodes, as we only see Cody from the back. The doc tells Cody that his nose is broken, so Cody demands a mirror. He's horrified and wants his nose fixed!

"THE ALL-AMERICAN AMERICAN" JACK SWAGGER v. KOFI KINGSTON: AMATEUR WRESTLING CHALLENGE
I'm somewhat surprised that this feud is still going. Swagger dons the headgear and the mouthguard.

The three-minute match begins and Swagger gets a quick takedown. Swagger takes Kofi down again and outwrestles him. Swagger gets two points for the takedowns while Kofi's credited one point for an escape. Swagger gets a headlock takedown for another two. Swagger stalls and argues with the ref. A lot of time is going, as the crowd's getting restless. Swagger gets another takedown and slaps Kofi around. We get the Steiner push-ups, as Kofi loses his cool and takes down Swagger. Either way, time runs out and Swagger wins 10-9.

WINNER: Jack Swagger - Angle advancement and nothing more.

Post-match, Swagger takes Kofi down from behind. Kofi fights back with the Thesz Press and Trouble In Paradise. Kofi climbs the turnbuckles and hits the frog crossbody. Hit his music!

We go back to your hosts: Josh Matthews, Michael Cole, and Matt Striker. They shoot to a recap of last week's Cutting Edge. Later tonight, Edge faces a member of The Corre.

Ad break

Your hosts are STILL Josh Matthews, Michael Cole, and Matt Striker. Announcers note a ratings increase, as Matthews and Cole each try and take credit for it.

TRENT BARRETA v. DREW McINTYRE
This would be the rubber match, as the series is tied 1-1. We take a look back at Barreta's upset from last week and subsequent sneak attack.

McIntyre goes on the offense fast with a belly-to-belly and mounted punches. McIntyre hits a corner clothesline and snap suplex for 2. McIntyre whips Barreta in and Trent gets a dropkick. Barreta hits some kicks to stagger McIntyre. He springboards in, but gets power bombed for his trobules. McIntyre places Barreta on the turnbuckles. Barreta shoves him off, but McIntyre swoops in with a pop-up double underhook superplex! YIKES! Crowd actually pops for that one! And that'll do it at about 3 minutes.

WINNER: Drew McIntyre - That's a hell of an addition to the Drew McIntyre moveset! I'm impressed!

Post-match, McIntyre offers a handshake, but Barreta pops him one instead. McIntyre responds with a takedown and mounted punches. He wants the Future Shock, but here's Kelly Kelly. Drew drops Barreta and tries to plead his case that Barreta hit him first. Technically, he DOES have a point. McIntyre DID offer the hand of friendship before Barreta socked him like a jerk. But Kelly's not buying that, as she gives McIntyre the cold shoulder and checks on Barreta.

Later tonight, Edge faces a member of The Corre.

Ad break - WWE Hall of Fame promo

Tony Chimel welcomes in The Miz. Cole gives him a standing ovation, like a toolbox. Miz comes in and grabs a mic and it's promo time!

"Tell me how you really feel. You know, there's a popular saying that even you people might have heard of. It goes 'awesome is, as awesome does' and if that's too deep for you people, allow me to explain. It means being awesome is about doing awesome. And last Monday night of Raw, I proved just how awesome I really am by doing awesome to Randy Orton. You don't believe me, let's take a look." We take a look at Orton beating Dolph Ziggler last Monday before Miz and Riley pounced on him. "Let the evidence show that I'm the Miz...and I'M..."

Interruption comes from Edge, who comes out with his own mic. He stands on the ramp for rebuttal. "You're The Miz and you're done. I am sick of you Raw rejects coming to SmackDown thinking that you run this place. Now you're out here wasting everybody's time talking about what you did to Randy Orton, forgetting to mention that it was after a match with Dolph Ziggler."

Miz: Let me tell you something, Edge. What I did to Randy Orton is nothing compared to what I have planned for you this Monday night on Raw, champ.

Edge: Well, I tell you what, champ, you're about #27 on my list of things to do. Eh, maybe 32. You see, I have a lot to deal with tonight, so I'll deal with you Monday. Tonight, I have to deal with Wade Barrett and the rest of Corre. So tell you what, why don't you do me and everybody else a favor and get OUT...of MY ring!

Miz and Riley exit the ring. Riley thinks twice and decides to come back in for rebuttal, so Edge spears him. Miz pulls him out and takes his coat off. He jumps on the apron, but thinks better of it. Miz exits, as Edge's music hits. Edge faces a Corre member next.

Ad break - Royal Rumble promo

The Corre make their entrance. Hey, check it out! Less than two hours after formally announcing the group's name, The Corre already have a Titantron video! Now THAT'S service! The four men enter the ring, as Vickie Guerrero comes out to yell into the mic. She introduces Dolph Ziggler to join the commentary team. As Dolph makes his way to the commentary team, The Corre leave the ring, except for...

"THE RATED R SUPERSTAR" EDGE v. JUSTIN GABRIEL (w/THE CORRE): NON-TITLE MATCH
We start with the lock-up and Edge gets the better of the exchange. Edge whips Gabriel into the corner with authority. He kicks Gabriel in the corner and whips him in, but Gabriel slides underneath. Gabriel looks for a spin kick to the head, but Edge ducks and hits the Edge-O-Matic for 2. Edge picks Gabriel up and Gabriel takes control with some kicks. He chokes away in the corner. Gabriel hits a jumping spin kick in the corner. Edge hammers back and whips Gabriel into the opposite corner. Gabriel elbows a corner charge attempt and tries for a headscissors, so Edge dumps him onto the apron and wipes him out with a big boot. That'll take us to our last ad break of the night.

We come back with Gabriel hitting a Russian legsweep and hitting the pretzel. Edge elbows out of it. Edge looks for a clothesline and Gabriel reverses it into an inverted Russian legsweep. He wants the 450 Splash, but Edge gets up quickly, leaving Gabriel without a plan B. Without any other options, Gabriel jumps, allowing Edge to hit him with a dropkick on the way down. Edge is up first and pancakes Gabriel. Gabriel gets up on the apron and looks for a kick to the head, but Edge ducks it and hits the Edge-O-Matic, guillotining Gabriel on the ropes and sending him out. Edge gives chase and tosses Gabriel back in. He climbs the turnbuckle, but Gabriel pops up and nails an enziguiri! Gabriel wants a superplex, but it's blocked! Edge headbutts him down and hits a top-rope crossbody block for two. Edge makes the Spear Face, but stops to knock down Barrett and Slater from the apron. Jackson manages to waffle Edge with a big clothesline. Gabriel crawls over and covers for the win at about 10 minutes.

WINNER: Justin Gabriel - Started off a little slow, but started picking up steam before the cheap finish.

Post-match, the 4-on-1 beatdown is on! Slater hits his unnamed finisher. Barrett hits Wasteland. Gabriel hits the 450 Splash. The Corre pose in the middle of the ring, as their music hits.

Of course, with Edge down, there's still one piece of business left. As The Corre exit, Dolph comes into the ring and stares Edge down. He puts a foot on Edge's corpse and poses, as Dolph's music hits to end the show.

FINAL THOUGHT

First thing's first, John Orquiola's right, adding an extra "R" and naming the group "The Corre" is morronic. Not everything needs an extra letter to look cool, guys. In fact, sometimes adding a letter makes certain things look stupid. If the concern is legality, then name the group something else. Surely, "The Corre" couldn't have been the best name on the table.

I'm a little disappointed that we didn't get a fifth member of The Corre to counter Punk's fifth Nexus member, but I'm sure the explanation will be that Jackson's like two members. Either way, the group itself looks impressive and I look forward to their presence on this show and they're a lot more interesting than Punk's Straight Edge Society 2.0 (a.k.a. The Group Masquerading As Nexus). Having said that, please don't give the mic to Heath Slater anymore. Please!

As for the new mystery of "Who Whacked Teddy Long?", it'd be too easy to say it was The Corre. I'm going to guess that it was Kane, since we haven't seen him in a few weeks and I'm pretty sure he's still miffed at Long for letting Edge kill Paul Bearer again.

Until next week!

Heath's finisher is actually called the Slatervator. Yeah, I wish it was unnamed too.

Pretty good show. I like the Corre as basically 'the talented members of Nexus' but I do hope they add a fifth guy (Sheffield?) to the ranks to even things out with Punk's crew.

Part of me hopes Cody just turns into a maniac with his nose broken and throws the other 39 guys in the Rumble out by himself.

Thank you. But I prefer "John Orquiola is Corre-ct."

As It's False accurately transcribed, the grammatical errors in the Corre vs. Teddy Long promo made my ear drums implode.

What the hell is Kelly Kelly's problem? Drew was right, Trent slapped him in the face after he extended his hand in sportsmanship. Trent deserved an asskicking. Who does Kelly think she is ordering Drew around and screaming at him? It almost smells like a double turn is coming, but that doesn't make sense - a heel Kelly and a face Drew? How does that work? But man, Kelly sucks.

The Corre, hideous spelling aside, has gone out of their way in one week to be as un-Nexus as possible. Wade is not the leader. There is no Megatron (boo). Everyone gets mic time and a personality, unlike oh, the last four months of Nexus 1.0. And they're not an anarchic force who answer to no one. They're just a stable of guys pretending to be reasonable and compliant. They also have terrible music but lack that unifying symbol of the black and yellow N. This thing is a worrk in prrogrress.

Michael Tarver was in the office with Vickie and Dolph when Teddy Long was first shown knocked out. Is he Corre?

My girlfriend is pretty good at translating ADR's intros from Rodriguez and apparently in his intro last night, he described him as "the man with the smile," which cracks me up.

The most disappointing thing about Zeke in the Corrre (aside from being One More Heel on a Heeltastic show) - we don't get to hear his awesome theme music. And yes, a 2nd "r" in "Core" is silly and just smacks of adding a 2nd "z" to Taz.

Beth/Layla was a darn good women's match. Glad to see her back in action.

Barrett said he was going to kick Tarver out of Nexus anyway when he got hurt, so I doubt he'll be in Corre. Tarver dressed nicely & being presentable was all kinds of :( :( :( though.

As for Drew/Trent?, Drew beat him down backstage last week after their match, so I don't blame Trent? one bit for being suspicious of Drew. Trent? was just practicing the "fool me once..." methodology.

Yes, dear God, yes, please get her to translate every week. Or anyone who speaks Spanish, please translate. Ricardo's intros are probably the funniest thing in WWE every week that most of us are missing out on.

I'm guessing after the whole WWF copyright court battle, Vince is now a bit spooked about having to go through that crap again with somebody. Better to just throw another R in there than to risk the possible wrath of Microsoft and their Xbox360 CORE system....or the producers of the film The CORE...or whoever the hell else invented/created something with the word CORE in it.

As for just changing the name, Vince probably has a hard-on for the name and isn't about to get rid of it.

Yeah, the Corre really doesn't inspire any kinda fear or anything really. Again if Bryan did snap Kelly's neck, I am sure it would get a pop. A friend of mine is trying to get me on the Alberto train, because it reminds him of Eddie, I still don't know. Smackdown is just there for me right now, I know the IWC likes Dolph, but he still isn't close to being in a main event to me even as one that is benign as the Royal Rumble title match.

How could there be copyright issues? If The Rock could call himself The Rock despite there being a movie called The Rock, I don't see how The Core (about as basic) could have legal issues.

I'll liken it to the statement "Some people like Chevys, some like Fords", but I find it interesting that the consensus here is that the talent in Nexus went with Wade while the consensus on another board I frequent is on the other side of the aisle with one exception - Gabriel > Otunga. On the other board, we're all pretty high on Husky and Perfect Jr. - we all pretty much felt that our favorites out of Nexus were those 2 then Gabriel with Slater and Otunga needing to find jobs at Wal-Mart.

For the record, I'm not quibbling or running down anyone's opinion - I just think it's something that while the opinions on most things are about the same that the opinions on this are so far apart.

Just to clarify my own opinion about Husky and McGuillicutty, I think Husky's fine. He's pretty unique in the company right now with his look and above avergage but still developing ability. Joe Hennig hasn't shown me anything yet that makes me think he's something special. Granted, NXT did not set any of them up to look like stars, but my overreaching memory of McGuillicutty is his final promos on that last night he lost to Kaval. And granted, the standard McGuillicutty is being held to is MR. PERFECT. By that same standard, Ted DiBiase is an abject failure next to his father The Million Dollar Man. The only upgrade in Ted's regard is Maryse > Virgil.

Still, Slater and Gabriel, while still rough around the edges, were the workhorses of The Nexus and Wade is still the crowning achievement of NXT as a breakout star-finding process, so I'm pretty confident about where I stand on The Corre inheriting the talent of the original Nexus.

I would like to know what everyone on the other board is so high on about McGuillicutty besides who his daddy was.

Husky Harris has an old school look that I like, but so did Trevor Murdoch and Nick Dinsmore and it didn't help them out a whole lot in the end.

We've seen so many second generation wrestlers come through without making a dent that I almost expect them to fail just because of the track record.

It seems you either have to be totally different from your father like the Rhodes kids, or come from a lower card father like Orton or The Rock.

It was probably easier as a second generation star pre-internet, because most fans wouldn't have a clue of the lineage unless they decided to make a thing of it.

"Corre" (pronounced as two syllables) is also the Spanish word for "run". On a show which has several characters who have been known to speak in Spanish without translation, and which has a large Hispanic audience, that's not inconsequential. I guess it will give one of the Latino wrestlers promo fodder at some point.

SPEAR FACE.

Justin's ring gear is resplendent. The champ made him look like a contender.

Is it me or are they turning the Future Shock into the next RKO? People wanted to see the move.

Ezekiel has a marvelous speaking voice.

The prolonged Rey feud and now a run of matches against R Truth are killing my interest in Alberto.

Swagger should wear the headgear always.

I will never take Husky serious as long as he has that name and those awful Affliction angel wing tattoos on his back.

Seriously, the guy's real name is WINDHAM ROTUNDA and they give him that.

Please. If Singh had any money, he'd have been sued right alongside Roland Alexander...but then, if Singh had any money, he could have afforded to go to a better school.
