TONIGHT! It's the first post-draft edition of SmackDown! We know for sure that Alberto Del Rio is going to Raw, so will there be any buildup for Sunday's Ladder Match? Plus, it's the go-home show for Extreme Rules and I hear there are other matches to build up! SmackDown is NOW!

The Champ May or May Not Be Here! My DVR wasn't early enough for this part.

Instead, the DVR cuts in during a video package of last Monday's draft, including the utter cocktease surrounding John Cena.

Opening pyro! We are taped from Greensboro, NC! The World Heavyweight Championship still hangs above the ring with no owner. Tonight, Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel exercise their rematch clause and try to get the tag titles back from Big Show and Kane. Plus, Rey Mysterio isn't on this show anymore, but he's here anyway! He faces Mark Henry.

And of course, we have to start off with the show's new #1 star, Randy Orton. Orton comes out in a SmackDown blue shirt. All I can think is "Goddammit, we are SO getting Orton/Cena at Bragging Rights, aren't we?" But that's six months down the road, so let's focus on the now. Orton grabs the mic, but soaks up the cheers first. It's promo time!

"Now...for...those of you who don't know me...please...please allow me to introduce myself. I'm Randy Orton. And now, for the first time, in almost five years, because of the WWE Draft, I am back here, once again, on the SmackDown roster. And while I am looking forward to the many, many challenges that lie ahead, this Sunday at Extreme Rules...I've a little bit of unfinished business to attend to involving...CM Punk. Now come this Sunday..."

Interruption comes from Drew McIntyre, of all people. He comes out in a Raw red shirt, which begs the question of "Why is he on this show?" I guess I'm going to have to give this nonsense a pass for this week. Carry on, Drew!

"I'm sorry. Did I buy a ticket to see all of YOU? Come on, everybody! Randy Orton is on SmackDown! But with the good news comes the bad news for everybody. Drew McIntyre's moving onwards and upwards to Monday Night R-R-Raw! It's a real shame, Randy. A real shame. Looks like the WWE Universe is gonna have to wait a little bit longer for Drew McIntyre versus Randy Orton. Ok...I can tell by the look in your eyes, and these people know exactly what you want to do, but Randy...I'm just out here to say hello...and goodbye!"

McIntyre gets the cheap shot and goes for the Future Shock, so Orton, of course, turns it into the RKO. We get an IMMEDIATE replay, which is quick, even for this production crew. So with McIntyre totally buried incapacitated, Orton simply carries on.

"Now...as I was saying..."

Now Alex Riley comes out for no good reason with some crappy generic rock. Riley comes out with his SmackDown blue shirt and a mic. But he doesn't get to say a word before Orton RKO's him. Sure, let's just bury Riley RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE! Why the hell not? Here's another instant replay. Orton picks up the mic again, but he has that look like he's expecting another interruption.

And it comes in the form of Alberto Del Rio, who isn't on this show anymore, either. He comes out in a full-tailored suit and not a cheap-ass Raw T-shirt. Ricardo Rodgiguez and Brodus Clay (with SmackDown blue T-shirt) come out behind him, as ADR stops on top of the ramp with his own mic. MICS FOR EVERYBODY!

"My name...my name is Alberto...Del Rioooooooooo! But you...especially you, Randall, already know that! I can see that you're doing a great first impression, just that one I did my very first night here in SmackDown! But Randy, let me tell you something else, I feel bad for you people. I feel bad, because you're losing ME from SmackDown! And after this Sunday, in Extreme Rules, you're going to lose the World Heavyweight Championship, 'cause I'm going to bring it with me...to Raw! And for you, Randall, like I said, you know how to make a great first impression! But Alberto Del Rio knows...how to make a lasting one!"

Randy Orton is faced with a 3-on-1, so Christian runs out to back him up. That brings out Teddy Long. Teddy Long makes the expected tag match for tonight's main event. Del Rio winks at Orton, so Orton takes a swipe at him and misses. Christian doesn't miss, hitting Brodus Clay with a dropkick to send him on his way. Faces stand in the ring to take us to our first...

Ad break - Raw promo! Man, good thing Cena stayed on Raw or he might miss The Rock!

Kofi Kingston comes out in his Raw red T-shirt! And right behind him comes Sheamus, NARROWLY missing Kofi's pyro! Yikes! And Sheamus waffles Kofi from behind. The beatdown is on! I assume these two were going to wrestle, but I guess that's off the table. Brogue Kick, goodbye! Can I just say again how annoying it is to have the announcers look at clearly heelish actions and just brush it off and go "That's some nice aggression from Sheamus." That kind of attitude doesn't put Sheamus over as a heel, it makes Kofi look like an idiot! Have SOMEONE show some outrage! Jeez! Anyway, hit Sheamus' music, as the referee brigade check on Kofi's corpse. I smell a thrown-together title match for Extreme Rules!

Booker: Maybe Kofi Kingston will listen to what I've been saying for quite some time. He gotta forget about all that dancing and messing around and get in there and take care of BUSINESS!

Jesus, Booker! So he shouldn't make his ENTRANCE? They have to be telegraphing a heel turn, right? They wouldn't just blatantly bury Kofi like this, would they? (Rhetorical question! Don't answer that!)

Ad break - Something that should be in your DVD bargain bin is coming to theaters. It stars new SmackDown Superstar Randy Orton!

WWE Smack of the Night - Michael Cole nearly kills JR by biting his freakin' hand open. Good one, douchebag.

Here's Michael Cole in the ring. He talks loud and says nothing, as per usual, before bringing out Jack Swagger in his Raw red T-shirt. Oh, we're having a match?

"THE ALL-AMERICAN AMERICAN" JACK SWAGGER v. SIN CARA
Well, the big advantage to having Sin Cara on SmackDown is that the magic of editing will help a lot if he ever botches his entrance again. And for the record, he definitely does NOT botch it this week, totally clearing the top rope with ease. We look back at Sin Cara running in 3 weeks ago and wiping out Jack Swagger.

The match is fought under MOOD LIGHTING! Swagger starts with a kick to the gut and a wrestling sequence. Swagger hammers on Sin Cara in the corner. Swagger scoops SC up, but SC falls through and hits some kicks. SC hits a springboard corkscrew armdrag. That was nice and all, but Swagger gets up right away and clobbers SC with a clothesline. Time for some elbows and some Scott Steiner push-ups. Whip to the corner with authority! Another whip to the opposite corner. Scoop slam from Swagger. Running Vaderbomb eats knees. Swagger hits some kicks and a handstand springing elbow. Headscissors hits. SC charges in the corner and gets backdropped onto the apron, so SC hits Swagger with an enziguiri. SC springboards onto his feet, but Swagger gets him with a big boot. Cole passes Swagger the rolled-up strap, but Swagger doesn't see SC, as SC piggybacks on top of him and gets the victory roll for the pin at 3 and a half minutes.

WINNER: Sin Cara - Way too short. If they want to showcase Sin Cara, they're going to need more than three minutes.

Post-match, Swagger charges in and gets lowbridged, so he falls on his face to the outside. SC follows him out with a springboard plancha. Sin Cara POINTS!

Backstage, we see Big Show and Kane, again walking with the "Holy crap, these dudes are BIG!" camera angle. The tag titles are on the line next.

Awesome Kharma vignette

JUSTIN GABRIEL & HEATH SLATER v. KANE & THE BIG SHOW: WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
We see the replay of last week's near-squash of The Corre guys and The Corre nearly imploding backstage. Matthews notes that Big Show was drafted to Raw, but is still allowed to compete on both shows, since he's half of the tag champions.

Show starts the match by overpowering Slater. As Show whips Slater into the corner, Matthews notes that Show's calling the Mayweather Special the "Weapon of Mass Destruction." Wait a tick...he's been using that as his finisher for almost FIVE YEARS! Are they JUST NOW coming up with a name for it??? Slater runs into a scoop, but clips Show and tags Gabriel. Gabriel comes in with a missile dropkick and tries to keep Show down with some running boots. It gets him a one-count, as Show's kick out sends Gabriel to the outside. Yup. That takes us to our next ad break.

We come back with Slater hitting a DDT for two. Gabriel tags in and goes for a Savage double axehandle, but gets caught by the throat. Gabriel's able to counter the chokeslam with a DDT. It gets 2. Time to hit the chinlock. It gets countered when Show falls on top of him. Tags are made on both ends, as Kane starts walloping Slater. Kane nails Slater with a big boot for 2. Corner clothesline and side slam put Slater down for 2. Kane's top-rope clothesline hits. He grabs the GOOZLE! Gabriel comes off the top and he gets GOOZLED! The Corre guys are able to avoid the double chokeslam, but miss the double clothesline. Show's back in and now we get stereo chokeslams! Kane covers Slater to retain at 8 minutes and change.

WINNERS: Kane & The Big Show - The Corre guys came closer, but that's relative. They came closer in the same way that you get closer to the moon by climbing a tree.

Backstage, we see The Great Khali and Runjin Singh. Rey Mysterio comes in and says hello briefly before exiting. After Rey leaves, another guy comes into the picture wearing a full suit. Singh identifies him as Jinder Mahal. The fact that he's standing next to Khali probably doesn't convey the fact that Mahal looks like a pretty big dude, himself. Mahal and Khali briefly shoot the shit, before Mahal exits. Interesting.

Ad break - Raw promo

Rey Mysterio comes out for his match, but he has something to say first. It's promo time!

"Oh, it's hard. It's hard. It's gonna be hard leaving you guys. I tell you, ever since I've been a part of SmackDown, you've allowed me to enter your homes every Friday night to entertain you...and believe me when I say this, I've enjoyed every single minute of it! We've had a lot of fun together and that ride's been good. Hey, just last year, we won the World Title...together! Just 'cause I got drafted to Raw, it doesn't mean that our journey has ended. As a matter of fact, it continues. And it continues this Sunday at Extreme Rules when I defeat Cody Rhodes...and we celebrate...together! So really...it don't matter if I'm on Raw or SmackDown, the bottom line is, each and every one of you will ALWAYS be a part of the 6...1...9!"

Mark Henry comes out smiling as much as he ever did, only now he's a heel instead of a face. I guess I should be thankful because it means he's not reverting back to the generic "angry black man" heel. No, he's just going to be the generic "arrogant heel". Here's some footage of Mark Henry's heel turn from Monday. Oh, now HE'S going to talk! Ok, then...

"It's unfortunate for you, Rey, that your farewell is MY debut."

At least he kept it brief.

REY MYSTERIO v. "THE WORLD'S STRONGEST MAN" MARK HENRY
Rey outmaneuvers the slower Henry to start and hits some kicks, so Henry goes to the choke. Cole drones on about how played out the Rey underdog story is, which is something he REALLY shouldn't be spelling out for the people at home, just because it's so true. I'm astounded at how counterproductive this commentary is sometimes. Rey catches his breath on the outside. He comes back in and nails Henry with some kicks, before running into Henry's flail. Henry stands on top of Mysterio. Rey fights back with some more kicks, but Henry takes him down with a clothesline. Tiem for the bar slide. Henry gives chase and Rey tries to fight him off, but gets shoved into the steps. Henry charges in, but there's nobody home and he hits the steps, nearly doing a FULL FLIP over them! Ok, that was an impressive sell job! That takes us to our next ad break.

We come back with Rey hitting a baseball slide in the corner. Rey climbs to the top, but gets crotched into the tree of woe. Avalanche hits. It gets 2. Here's a headbutt, as Henry continues his "methodical" offense. He chucks Rey into the corner. He tries to sit on Rey and misses. Rey hits a seated dropkick. Whoopee Cushion gets 2, as Henry kicks out with authority! Avalanche misses and Rey takes him down with a seated dropkick to set up the 619. 619 hits! Rey looks for the finish, but here's Cody Rhodes for the DQ at about 9 minutes.

WINNER BY DQ: Rey Mysterio - Gotta protect Mark Henry. He's got a title program coming up, you know! Sigh...

Post-match, the beatdown is on! Rhodes tosses Rey over the barricade and hits a headbutt. Cody takes Rey up through the crowd, but Rey fights back. Cody takes control again and tosses Rey back to the ringside area. Back in the ring we go, where Mark Henry hits Rey with the World's Strongest Slam. Cody comes into the ring and puts a paper bag over Rey's face.

Later tonight, Randy Orton teams with Christian to face Alberto Del Rio and Brodus Clay.

Ad break - Extreme Rules WWE Championship promo

WWE Rewind - LayCool implodes.

MICHELLE McCOOL v. LAYLA
Layla's wearing a cut SmackDown shirt, just to make her look that much hotter.

We have a fight to start off and it quickly spills to the outside. Michelle chucks Layla into the barricade. Layla catches her with a kick and knocks Michelle into the barricade. Michelle hits a pair of kicks and...oh, is that it?

WINNER: Double Countout - Angle advancement, I guess.

Post-match, the referee brigade come out to break up the fight, mostly to no avail. Light "Let them fight" chant picks up some steam quickly.

Layla grabs the mic and proposes No DQ, No Countout for Extreme Rules. Michelle accepts, but adds in a Loser Leaves...

Wait, stop a second...

Michelle says "Loser leaves..." and then the camera immediately cuts away and you hear her say "WWE". That sounds suspiciously piped in! Was anyone at the show live? Did Michelle really say that? And if not, is there something to this story that we don't know about?

Layla accepts the match. I have a bad feeling about this. Someone's leaving after Sunday and I have a feeling it's not going to be Mrs. Undertaker.

Later tonight, a tag team main event!

Ad break - Tough Enough promo

Behind-the-scenes of the European tour.

The demoted Matt Striker talks to Christian backstage. Christian says he'll be the one fulfilling his destiny on Sunday.

Extreme Rules card rundown.

Tony Chimel introduces Ricardo Rodriguez, who introduces in Alberto Del Rio. This week, Alberto Del Rio joins us in a 2011 Ferrari California. Brodus Clay isn't cool enough to ride ADR's car, so he's already in the ring. The main event is next.

ALBERTO DEL RIO & BRODUS CLAY v. CHRISTIAN & RANDY ORTON
Chimel hasn't started incorportating "The Viper" moniker into Orton's introductions yet, but I think that'll change over the next year.

Christian starts with Del Rio, who immediately tags out. Clay overpowers Christian and walks over him. Christian tries a waistlock, which Clay reverses before throwing Christian down. Christian slaps him in the face and hits some right. Clay chucks Christian into the corner. Christian tries a sunset flip, but Clay uses his ample center of gravity to pick Christian up. Clay telegraphs a right, so Christian slaps him, but runs into a headbutt. Clay tags out and Del Rio nails a soccer kick. Del Rio tries to whip Christian into the "That's What I Am" crawl, but can only throw him into the turnbuckle. Enziguiri to the shoulder gets 2. Time to hit the armbar. Christian then counters a backdrop and tags Orton. Orton comes in with rights and uppercuts. Big kneedrop hits. Snapmare and kneedrop get 2. Del Rio comes back with a kick and single-arm DDT. Clay gets tagged in and charges into Orton. That takes us to our final ad break of the night.

We come back with Clay hitting a bodyslam for 2. Del Rio tags in and hits a seated dropkick for 2. Del Rio goes to the mounted punches. Time for the chinlock. Orton counters with a back suplex. Tags are made on both sides. Christian hits some clotheslines and goes for a whip, but Clay's a BIG FAT GUY, so that obviously doesn't work. The whip is reversed, but Clay charges into a boot. Pair of second-rope dropkicks take Clay down. Christian hits his floatover slap. Top-rope crossbody is caught and Clay hits the fallaway slam for 2. Clay stands on Christian and Del Rio adds in some punishment. Big elbow gets 2. Tag is made to Del Rio, who hits the armbar. Del Rio headbutts Christian into the corner and charges in, but gets backdropped over the top rope. Del Rio manages to tag in Clay, who stops Christian from making the tag. Headbutt takes Christian down. Backbreaker into a backbreaker submission into a bodyslam all in one motion. Bodyslam hits. Del Rio tags in. He looks for the Top Rope Senton That Never Hits. It hits. Huh...what do you know? It only gets 2. Del Rio kicks Christian in the corner. Del Rio climbs the second rope for what I assume would be the Second Rope Senton That Never Hits, but Orton distracts him, which allows Christian to hit a second-rope 'rana! Hot tag is made to Orton, who hits clotheslines and a snap powerslam. Angle Slam hits! Time for the hanging DDT, which hits! Orton knocks Clay down and it's time for the VIPER COIL! Del Rio shoves Orton out of an RKO attempt and Clay trips Orton up. Clay is tagged in, but runs right into the RKO for the pin at 15 minutes.

WINNER: Christian & Randy Orton - Good tag match and good way to bring Orton into the fold.

Christian points at the title to end the show.

FINAL THOUGHT

Well, we have a whole new roster. Plenty of time to establish the new guys, but this was a good week to highlight the guys they're focusing on: Orton, Sheamus, Sin Cara, and...Mark Henry. Well, you can't win 'em all.

Good show this week that went a long way towards putting together the new status quo. Let's see what they do for an encore.

Until next week!

Actually, everyone on both rosters is invited to The Rock's birthday party.

I get so aggravated when they do things to bury Drew McIntyre.

Yeah that Michelle McCool thing was almost like the Simpsons' old Super Bowl bit where they changed the team every year.

Kane should not wrestle in a giant blue t-shirt...it just looks Wrong for some reason.

Uhh...who was that dude backstage with Khali? A new wrestler? A celebrity in India? Google tells me he's a Stampede Wrestling alum currently in FCW.

Did they even mention the supplemental draft during the show?

If Long wanted to be fair, he should have made it a triple threat tag team match and had McIntyre team with Riley. But I guess they were taken care of with those RKOs into the black hole.

Cole seemed to have forgotten Sheamus' stint in ECW - or ECW entirely, for that matter.

Sin Cara? More like Sin Luces! Am I right? Hey WWE, Glacier called, he says you need to drop snow from the sky during this lighting treatment.

Then I kinda lost interested and stopped making observations, except...

Did it seem to anybody else that both on Monday AND on this show, like all the really XL Smackdown shirts were a different shade of blue than the less XL ones? I kinda wondered if they were using warehouse extras from lsat year's draft for the larger sizes or something.

If they did that (and gave Sin Cara Glacier's old music), I'd totally watch.

Actually, true story: I first started watching wrestling in '97, and Glacier was my first "favorite wrestler". OK, I was young and easily impressed.

We noticed the exact thing when watching Raw, and made the exact same observation/joke.

Btw. appearances in the opening:
Mark Henry (4)
The Undertaker (3)

As much as I wish they weren't burying Swagger, he does such a great job of looking like a lumbering idiot. The only one who comes close is Alex Riley, so that could be the reasoning behind keeping them on separate shows. That's pretty much the only thing I took away from this show.

Changing it from "loser leaves SmackDown!" to "loser leaves WWE!" is so weird. Either way, she's still still leaving, she's not compelled to show up anywhere.

I forgot to mention that Cody Rhodes terrorizing the little kid during the in-the-stands beatdown was awesome if that wasn't a plant. Cody Rhodes vs Chuck Taylor for 2011, please.

Dolph Ziggler's new look is so generic, when Alex Riley came out (Miz-less), I thought it was Dolph (Vicki-less).

Odd that Mrs Taker worked with an immobilizer for a damaged ankle for a couple of months, & now that she appears healthy, she's taking off. We could start a rumour that she's pregnant. Or, maybe she only has to work when he does -- that's nice work if you can get it.

Perhaps subtitles might have helped the "who the hell is this guy?" issue in the Khali segment? (That could be kind of amusing: subtitle Ray in Hindi, new guy in english, & Khali in jibberish.) For no reason whatsoever, I thought maybe it was a visiting NBA star. Good, strong way to intro the new talent.

Great promo by Christian. If he wins, the promo works. If he loses and turns heel, it works. If he loses and stays within the SD title picture, it works.

Sin Cara's twirly armdrag was nifty.

I hope the new India performer is a face. I'm kinda bored with evil foreigners on Smackdown.

I hope that tete-a-tete between Del Rio and Orton is not a signal for Ortonference in the ladder match to keep the title on SmackDown. Which would cut the balls off any chance of Christian getting over as a main event player. (Not that I see it happening in any case, but the guy should at least get a fair shot at it.)

I figured it would be Michelle going since I don't think Taker's going to be making many appearances between now and 2012.

And I have to give some props to whoever on the writing staff saw my comment last week about Kane's pre-or-post match pyro foreshadowing his W-L in any given match. Heh.

I have to admit, I LOL'd when Drew McIntyre said the world will have to wait a little bit longer for Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton. I didn't even know I wanted to see it until Drew pointed out it will be denied to us. You always want what you can't have.

Now that they're on the same show, it's interesting to compare what a difference there is between Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase. Rhodes is surging and fulfilling his potential. Because he's doing what DiBiase isn't: he's created a gimmick and character (actually two - Dashing and Deformed) all his own. Unlike DiBiase, who's doing his Dad's Million Dollar Man gimmick rehashed and doing it blandly. Cody's not doing an American Dream or Common Man gimmick, he's doing something original. And it rules.

Brodus Clay is Prince William bald.

The funny thing about "LOSER LEAVES... wwe" was not that it was dubbed, but how poorly done it was. Like the first two words were full of intense fire, and then the only audio clip they could find of Michelle McCool saying "WWE" was her voice mail greeting.
