TONIGHT! It's the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals in the last game of the baseball season! It's Game 7, baby! Oh...and there's some wrestling show on, I guess. SmackDown...is...whatever...yeah...

WWE - The Champ is Here!

We get a dramatic video package recapping the Henry/Show match from Vengeance. We see the ring destroyed and Show getting carted off. Tonight, we determine the future of the World Title.

No opening credits, as we go straight to the ring and TEDDY LONG with his music. Long says that the statuses of Mark Henry, Big Show, and the world title are in flux. He also says that Henry and Show are both here tonight and the future of the title will be addressed. Ok, why does the future of the title need to be addressed? If it's a No Contest, then the champion retains, right? What's there to discuss here?

Anyway, interruption comes from CHRISTIAN, so it must be time for his one joke. Christian has the mic and I'm not even going to bother transcribing, because we all know what he's going to say. Christian talks about the title and how he's dominated the brand, an idea that even Long scoffs at. Christian says it's a sign of resiliency.

Next interruption comes from...CM PUNK? The sounds of Living Colour bring out Raw's own CM Punk. Even the announcers note that this isn't Raw. Ok, The E, if you're trying this hard to pique my interest, I'll at least offer some transcription. NO, I'm NOT transcribing Christian's one joke, so let's skip that part! Anyway, Christian demands answers.

Long: Well, before *I* was so rudely interrupted by YOU, what I was about to say was that since Raw has enjoyed using some of SmackDown's Superstars over the past few weeks on their Raw SuperShow, well, I pulled some strings and arranged for some of the Raw Superstars to be here tonight...for a Super SmackDown!

Punk: And before *I* was rudely interrupted, 'cause I was gonna come out and start talking right away, but then you just kept yakking. I just wanted to say thank you for having me, it's good to be here, it's...it's nice, it's very nice to be on a show with some competent leadership, for once.

Christian: Hahaha! Are you serious? Competent leadership? Obviously, you've never met Teddy Long before, right?

Punk: And obviously, you've never spent one minute with John Laurinaitis, because Johnny on Raw, let me tell you, is not so hot. TEDDY...Teddy makes Johnny look so much worse than he actually is, which is hard to do. Let me tell you, John Laurinaitis makes you look like FDR.

Long: Well, thank you very much, playa.

Punk: That's not...not exactly a compliment, but...I digress. I'm here because I am a huge fan of yours, rusty bird. You are awesome! No, seriously! I see a sign over there! It says "1 MORE MATCH"! I would like to see you get one more match. I am a fan of your wrestling ability. The problem I have is that every time you open your mouth, you make non...

Christian: Whoawhoawhoawhoawhoawhoa! Hold on one second, hold on one second. Please tell me you're not about to give me some sort of lecture, alright? You're gonna stand out here and you're gonna throw stones at me?

Punk: Yes.

Christian: Aren't you the same guy that hijacked the WWE title this past summer and left the company?

Punk: Yes. Yeah, I did that.

Christian: Now I know you think what you did was cool and earth-shattering and all that, but let me tell you, I think it was a complete joke, alright? And I also think it's a complete joke that John Laurinaitis is even considering you for a title match...with Alberto Del Rio.

Punk: Well, maybe, that's why Johnny is so bad at his job. Maybe John Laurinaitis is just trying to set me up, or maybe he's actually considering giving me the title shot against Alberto Del Rio. Maybe he's considering it, because unlike you, I don't waste all these people's time bitching and moaning and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching...and bitching...and bitching...

Christian: Are you f-

Punk: ...and bitching!

Christian: You know something? I don't care if you were invited here or not. As the leader of SmackDown and the most respected man in that locker room, I'm not gonna let you stand here and talk to me like that? So you know what? You know what? I'm not asking you, I'm telling you, take your pipe bomb and hit the bricks back to Raw, because nobody wants you here!

Punk: Nobody...nobody wants me here? Gee...nobody wants me here, I guess I'll just take my pipe bomb and go back to Raw. Oh, wait! Over 10,000 people here in Houston seem to want me here! I bet hard-earned money that the people here in Houston would like to see me in a match tonight. And my Magic 8-ball says, they would like to see me in a match tonight...with YOU! Can that get done?

Long: Playa, it's on! Every day, all day!

Punk: Holler, holler, holler!

Hit Living Colour! That was a nice promo, but Punk couldn't have sounded any whiter at the end if he tried.

So your hosts are the three jerkwads. They break down what we just saw the only way they can, through cliches and idiocy.

Coming up next, Air Boom face off against Awesome Truth.

Ad break

R-TRUTH & THE MIZ v. AIR BOOM: NON-TITLE MATCH
I've said it before, but God bless Chimel for still introducing Miz as "Da Miz!" We take a look at what happened at Vengeance last Sunday with Awesome Truth costing Cena the world title. We then see Awesome Truth destroying Cena on Raw, followed by the World's Most Anticlimactic Announcement.

We start off with feeling out between Miz and Kofi. Miz hits a running knee and tags out. Truth pounds away. Corner charge eats boot and Kofi tags out. Double bulldog gets 2. Headscissors and corner dropkick hit. Bourne hits a kick to the head, but Miz stops Bourne from climbing the ropes. Truth sends Bourne to the outside and Miz sneaks in a clothesline to send us to our next ad break.

We come back with the heels working over Bourne in a long heat segment. Bourne takes Truth down with an enziguiri. Tags are made on both sides and Kofi cleans house. Miz dodges the Buzzsaw Legdrop. Kofi hits a springboard crossbody for 2. Pier 4 leads to Little Jimmy's Finale finishing clean for Awesome Truth at about 10 minutes.

WINNERS: Awesome Truth - You'd think they'd be able to get two other random faces for Awesome Truth to step over, but why do something logical like that when you can use the tag team champions?

Post-match, it's time for some mic work.

Truth: Don't boo me! You should have been booing yourselves! For those of you who've been keeping count, we just beat the WWE Tag Team Champions! This past Sunday at Vengeance, we beat CM Punk and Triple H! Monday Night Raw, we destroyed Zack Ryder and beat the wheels off of John Cena!

Miz: In fact, we beat Cena so bad that he had to go out and get another partner to face us at Survivor Series...The Rock!

Truth: I think we beat Cena to brain damage, because he picked the only man on Earth who dislikes him more than we do.

Miz: Well, that's fine and dandy, because let's face it. If The Rock accepts Cena's offer and they don't destroy each other beforehand, we'll finish the job at Survivor Series.

Later tonight, we'll address the status of the World Heavyweight Championship. WHAT IS THERE TO ADDRESS? IT WAS A NO-CONTEST! Also, CM Punk faces Christian.

Ad break - Greatest Rivalries DVD promo

That DVD promo segues into a backstage promo with the locker room. Justin Gabriel brings up that Daniel Bryan was trained by Shawn Michaels. This gets the attention of Tyson Kidd, who makes the case for Bret Hart. BRET! SHAWN! BRET! SHAWN! WABBIT SEASON! DUCK SEASON! This somehow leads to a match later tonight.

Elsewhere, Teddy Long finds Hornswoggle dressed as Zack Ryder. The Vickie Family enter the picture and brag about Dolph winning twice at Vengeance. Long puts Dolph in a match with Randy Orton tonight and bans Swagger from ringside. The Vickie Family exit, as we cue the saxophone music and...nope! FFWD!

Your hosts are the three termites and I'll just stick to that FFWD button, thank you very much.

Video package for Triple H/Kevin Nash. MORE FFWD!

Wade Barrett and his kick-ass overcoat come down the ramp for our next match, after the...

Ad break - Raw is MUPPETS promo! As perversely interested as I am in seeing if inanimate puppets can show more personality than John Laurinaitis, I don't think I'll be breaking my Raw sabbatical for this one.

WADE BARRETT v. TRENT BARRETA
Trent Barreta gets no entrance, because he's cannon fodder, of course. Wasteland (April is the cruellest month) finishes quickly.

WINNER: Wade Barrett - SQUASH!

Coming up next, Randy Orton faces Dolph Ziggler.

RANDY ORTON v. DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/VICKIE GUERRERO): NON-TITLE MATCH
After both men make their entrances, Cody Rhodes' music hits. Here's CODY RHODES with his minions. Oh lord, is this feud not over yet? Didn't Orton win convincingly at the PPV? Cody and his minions join the toolboxes on commentary, so at least the commentary should be entertaining, for once.

We start with the lockup...does Ziggler have his tights on inside-out? Orton hits a shoulderblock and goes to the chinlock at a blistering 45 seconds in. Wrestling sequence follows, as Orton wins with a shoulderblock. Dolph gets a cheap shot and goes to the headlock takeover, which Orton reverses to an arm bar. Dolph gets a schoolboy for 2. Orton gets his own for 2. Orton hits the Garvin Stomp with some extra gusto! Orton hits the knee drop for 2. Orton goes to the armbar again. Corner charge is countered and Dolph goes to his own armbar. Orton escapes it and chases Dolph on the outside. Dolph gets the idea to use Vickie to block Orton's charge, but Orton simply leapfrogs over her and clotheslines Dolph anyway. Vickie screams us into our next ad break.

We come back with Orton's corner charge eating elbow and a Dolph dropkick for 2. Dolph stomps a mudhole in the corner. Dolph goes to another armbar before shifting into the DDT for 2. Now we move into the chinlock. Hangman's neckbreaker gets 2. Dolph climbs to the top rope and gets crotched. Top-rope superplex hits, but only gets 2! Both men exchange blows and Orton hits a clothesline to make the babyface comeback. Snap powerslam hits! Hanging DDT hits! VIPER COIL! RKO is countered with a superkick for 2! Zig Zag is countered and Orton finishes with the RKO at 12 and a half minutes.

WINNER: Randy Orton - Decent match, but there were an awful lot of restholds throughout.

Post-match, Cody Rhodes walks away without incident, but holds up a paper bag ominously.

Your hosts are the three numbnuts. They talk about last week's battle of the Sin Caras, as we take a look at what happened.

This takes us backstage to the demoted Matt Stryker with...hey, it's the unmasked Hunico! Looks like they ARE keeping him around! Good for him! Hunico officially dubs himself with the Hunico name (¡Ahora seré Hunico!) and vows payback against Sin Cara. Well, he looks totally generic now, but I'm happy to see I was wrong about Hunico getting let go.

Later tonight, the future of the World Heavyweight Championship. Plus, CM Punk faces Christian!

Ad break

Video package for Brodus Clay. Five bucks says his past with Alberto Del Rio is never mentioned.

DANIEL BRYAN v. TYSON KIDD
Daniel Bryan's music now starts with a cash register, because he won Money in the Bank, you see. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who expected Ted DiBiase to come out, either. After giving him backstage airtime, the least they could do is give Tyson Kidd an entrance, but he gets nothing and likes it.

The bell rings and both guys stand in the middle of the ring STILL arguing over who's better between Bret and Shawn. At least they're committed to the storyline, if nothing else. This leads to a shoving match, which leads to a wrestling exchange, which Bryan wins. Bryan turns a leapfrog into a single-leg takedown. Kidd takes control with a YAAAAAA side kick and a seated dropkick for 2. Kidd grabs a headlock. Bryan is whipped into the corner and he lands the backflip and makes the babyface comeback. YAAAAAAA running corner dropkick gets 2. Bryan hits a top-rope 'rana, which Kidd reverses into a sunset flip for 2! Bryan tries for the LeBell Lock, leading into a pin reversal sequence that Kidd nearly turns into the Sharpshooter! Bryan turns the Sharpshooter into the LeBell Lock for the tap out.

WINNER: Daniel Bryan - That match was criminally short! It's like they took a Bret/Shawn match and condensed into two minutes.

We go back to what happened with John Cena on Raw. Nope! FFWD!

We go back to Michael Cole, who has the mic...NOPE! FFWD!

Ad break - Raw is Muppets promo!

We come back with THE BIG SHOW in the ring wearing a full suit. We look at still photos of what happened last Sunday at Vengeance. He's got the mic and it's promo time!

Show: Oops, I did it again! Ow, I shouldn't laugh, it actually hurts to laugh. You know, I've been in this business for 16 years and I fought Hall of Famers, I've fought legends, I've fought future Hall of Famers, you know, on the grandest stages this business has to offer. I got to tell you, right now I'm hurting in places that I didn't even know had places. Mark Henry was an out-of-control monster that night. I mean, I don't think I've ever...I don't think I've ever had a fight like that with somebody that powerful ever. I mean, uh...Mark Henry, he really brought it to me. I gotta give him credit. Mark Henry gave me a good fight, he really did. And you know, you would after going through all that carnage that I went through, you'd think that I would...you know, stay away from something like that, but you know, we've had this talk before, folks, and...you know I'm not quite right in the head. So, you know what my philosophy is right now, let's reinforce the ring and do it one more time! See? I looked in Mark Henry's eyes and I know without a doubt in my heart, I know I can beat Mark Henry. I know I can take the World Heavyweight Championship from Mark Henry! That's why I'm...dressed up in this fancy suit. I spent most of today in conference with Teddy Long and Teddy Long assures me that there will be a rematch in the near future between Mark Henry and I. Now how soon, that is...

Interruption comes from MARK HENRY. Henry, unlike Show, is dressed to wrestle. Henry walks down, making sure to sell the effects of last Sunday, emphasizing the back.

Henry: I don't care who you talked to! You not getting a rematch! I went into Vengeance as the World Heavyweight Champion and I left it that way. And as far as I'm concerned, I handled my business! And now I'm done with you! I'm sore and I'm beat up, because of this ring caving in! You sore and beaten because I made you that way! Obviously, I didn't do a good enough, because you still out here running at the mouth. Maybe if I put my foot in it, you'll shut up!

Show: I'm your huckleberry, come on!

Show preps for a fight, but Henry sells the back injury and thinks twice of it. Henry walks away, clutching his back, but starts thinking about rushing the ring. Instead, he holds the belt up and walks away.

Coming up next, it's tonight's main event.

Ad break - Wrestlemania ticket promo

CM PUNK v. CHRISTIAN
Wrestling sequence starts us off. Christian gets a shoulderblock. Punk comes back with his own shoulderblock. Christian takes control with an uppercut, but runs into a spinning heel kick for 2. Punk rams the shoulder in and goes to the hammerlock. Snapmare and dropkick gets 2. Punk hits the hammerlock, but Christian comes back with elbows. Christian counters a corner charge and second-rope elbow. Matthews says that Punk never received his SummerSlam title rematch, so I guess we're all going to pretend that the Triple Threat Hell in a Cell match didn't exist. It wouldn't be so annoying, except that match happened LESS THAN A MONTH AGO! Christian misses the top-rope splash. Punk goes for a GTS, but Alberto Del Rio's music hits. ALBERTO DEL RIO and RICARDO RODRIGUEZ come out and provide the distraction. Christian hits a DDT for 2. That'll take us to our final ad break of the night.

We come back with Punk taking control, before missing a legdrop. Christian pounds away and goes to the mounted punches. Christian hits his reverse DDT for 2. Time to hit the eyelock. Christian tosses Punk out and slams his head into the announce table. Back in the ring, a cover gets 2 and Christian hits the chinlock. Punk comes back with a Muay Thai combo and makes the babyface comeback. Swinging neckbreaker gets 2. Punk's running knee to the corner misses, but he's able to prevent the Kill Switch attempt. Christian gets the springboard sunset flip, but Punk rolls through and kicks him in the face. Punk misses a roundhouse and Christian turns it into the floatover uppercut. Top-rope crossbody hits, but Punk rolls through for 2! Punk goes to the springboard, but Christian turns it into a powerslam for 2! Christian wants the Kill Switch, which is nearly turned into the GTS, which itself is nearly turned into the Kill Switch, before Punk settles for the running corner knee/bulldog combo. Punk calls for the GTS, until Rodriguez jumps on the apron. Punk chases him off and nails Christian with a springboard clothesline. Punk looks for the Savage Elbow, but Rodriguez distracts the ref again and allows ADR to crotch Punk. Christian calls for the spear until Sheamus' music hits. SHEAMUS rushes down and chases off Rodriguez! Sheamus distracts Christian, which allows Punk to finish with the GTS at 13 minutes.

WINNER: CM Punk - Sweet Jesus, is the Sheamus/Christian feud STILL going? Does the word "blowoff" mean ANYTHING to this company?

Show ends with CM Punk triumphant.

FINAL THOUGHT

Best SmackDown in a while and a lot of it is thanks to CM Punk. The opening promo and main event were good stuff...until the silliness kicked in, anyway.

Besides the fun with Punk, we also got a decent Orton/Ziggler match, the makings of a good Bryan/Kidd match, and some good angle advancement between Show and Henry.

I will say, parenthetically, that for a PPV called Vengeance, in which the name of the PPV implies that scores will be settled and all that jazz...it sure doesn't seem like anything was settled if all the feuds that led to that show are still going. In particular, there's no excuse for the Orton/Rhodes and Sheamus/Christian feuds to still be going when they ended as clean as they could possibly end. If they ended clean on PPV, move forward!

It's a thumbs up from me this week. Until next time!

When Hunico did his bit with Striker, I could have sworn it was Homicide or Hernandez instead. Absolutely boring look for him. Honestly, is the WWE not even trying. The entire Latino gangsta, where they speak half English and half Spanish, and the look has been done forever.

For the record, I loved the dual Sin Cara's - I believe they ended the angle way too early.

I dunno; I for one would love to see an LAX angle in WWE, but in a TV-PG environment, it would be far too tame.

I liked the look. It really hasn't been done in WWE in a while and it pulls him away from Sin Cara. He did seem pretty bad ass though.
And I wouldn't be shocked if he gets a bigger push than Sin Cara in the weeks to come.

This was a good SD (a LOT better than Raw) with good matches and some nice promos. Punk and Christian were clicking on all levels.

Crazy how a couple years ago I thought DZ was the most overrated goof in the biz and didn't get what people saw in him. Now that they've pretty much killed off Punk I think he may be the best in the company right now.

I think they need to talk about how this guy actually KEEPS championships. Over the last couple years he's been a champ more often than not.

"pretty much killed off Punk"? I know you're just talking about the way they've "pushed" him in the past few weeks and you're right in that regard, but didn't you watch this week's SmackDown? Punk somehow is still over like hell.

I was thinking about this the other day as well.
He's come a long way from being the backstage joke that introduced himself to people.
And ever further away from being the Spirit squad guy.
It just shows that if you find the right gimmick and get a decent push you can make it after all.

We talked earlier about the Midnight Rider gimmick and who could benefit. This is one way to move him away from the horrible ring name and probably turn him face.

Or a nickname that eventually just becomes the name they go by. Like HHH. Hunter Hearst Helmsely was an awful name for him once he broke out of the blue blood gimmick. Dare I say, he would never have become the star he is without changing his name to the much cooler “HHH”.

I am not sure "DZ" would work, but something like that would be better than Dolph Ziggler.
