So, It's False, with John Laurinaitis gone are you going to be looking to pick the recaps back up? I'll happily cede them back to you if you are so inclined!

We're live from Baltimore, Maryland for Smackdown! Opening the show was none other than Teddy Long. He was here to rub it in that John Laurinaitis has been fired, and he immediately introduced today's interim GM, Mick Foley. Foley welcomed everyone to the show and said that he had a big night planned, but before he could announce any matches the Big Show made an entrance. Foley and Long basically melted away as Show stalked to the ring, with the commentators talking about how his ironclad contract lets him do whatever he wants. Give him the mic! Show didn't care that Laurinaitis was fired, he only cares about himself. He said that he could beat John Cena any time he wanted to, but he doesn't care about Cena either, he's done with Cena. Show intends to be a part of the Money in the Bank match for the WWE Title shot, saying that with a guaranteed title shot anytime he wants he'd be unstoppable. This WWE Title reign won't be for the boys in the back or the fans, it would be for himself, and he would never lose it.

The Funkasaurus' music hit next, and Brodus Clay was out along with the Funkadactyls. No singing or dancing for them, Brodus was here for business. He entered the ring and Big Show attacked with knees before he could get to his feet. Whip was reversed and Brodus dropped Big Show with a charging headbutt. He started pounding away in the corner, until David Otunga came out of nowhere with a chop block. Down went the Funkasaurus, and Big Show took methodical control with kicks to the injured leg as Otunga looked on happily from ringside. The WMD put an end to Clay, and Big Show taunted the fans before leaving. "Smile for me!" Otunga got into the ring and said that he'd call Brodus' mama, then dared the knocked out Clay to get up. Otunga said he could do the Funkasaurus thing better than Brodus could. Clay's music started playing, and Otunga did Clay's dance moves to mock him, before seguing into his muscle poses.

Tonight's main event matches are Kane vs. Daniel Bryan, and Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler. Ryback is next!

Ryback vs. Frank Venezia and Jared Wachler: Today's jobbers talked about how this summer, just like the heat, they were on the rise. Ryback sent them crashing back to earth. Today's highlights included Ryback simply flinging one at the other to knock them both down, and an eventual powerbomb of Frank onto Jared. The double running fisherman's buster finished them off. So why haven't they named the move yet? The fans were chanting "Feed me more" along with Ryback after the match.

Mick Foley and Yoshi Tatsu were chatting backstage, with Foley translating "Domo arigato" for Tatsu's benefit. Vickie Guerrero made her entrance and shooed Tatsu, saying there was sushi to be eaten somewhere. Tatsu called her an ugly old witch as he left to Vickie's annoyance, though Foley said being called an ugly old witch was a compliment in Japan. Vickie revealed that next week she would be the interim GM for Raw and Smackdown, and Foley said that those would be great shows. Vickie seemed displeased and threatened Foley, saying that maybe she'd make him her assistant. Foley was pleased by that. "That means I'd get to be on Smackdown two weeks in a row!" Vickie wasn't impressed, so Foley called in the Great Khali to dance. Vickie stormed off as Foley tried to teach Khali the Charleston.

Today's Raw 1000th episode retrospective is by Daniel Bryan, who looked back to Shawn Michaels defending the IC Title against Marty Janetty. Bryan talked about how impressive it was to see two smaller guys going out and doing things no one else was doing at the time, and how he never thought Janetty would have a chance but the upset was pulled out. He said it made Raw must-see television.

Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio w/Ricardo Rodriguez: Cole on commentary complained about Del Rio having to work his way back up after losing his title shot due to injury. I'm wondering if Del Rio had a concussion and was forced to give up his title shot, why did they start putting him back in matches immediately the day after the shot he missed? Having beaten the US Champ on Monday, now he faced the IC Champ. Del Rio was dumped all the way over the top rope to the floor in the corner, and Christian followed with a crossbody over the ringpost to the outside. After the break, Del Rio had control, with the replay showing Del Rio dodging a Christian charge leading him to slam himself into the ring steps. Del Rio worked over the arm and went to the top rope, but Christian caught him there and hit a top-rope hurricanrana for a near fall. Christian started his comeback offense, but missed a crossbody and staggered to the corner. Del Rio went for the running enziguiri, but Christian ducked and hit a tornado DDT for a near-fall. Christian went for the Killswitch, but it was countered into a Stunner on the bad arm. It was Del Rio's turn to go to the top, but his senton hit nothing but mat. Christian wanted the spear, but Del Rio superkicked him in the shoulder as he charged. Del Rio went for the corner enziguiri once more, but Christian kicked him before he could. Christian went up top, looking for the frogsplash, but Rodriguez got up on the apron as a distraction. Del Rio came in and springboarded off the top rope to hit his enziguiri finally, and the cross armbreaker followed. Christian tapped. Del Rio's now beaten the US Champ and the IC Champ in back to back shows.

Cody Rhodes came running down as Del Rio left, clotheslining Christian from behind as he got up. Cody locked on a Fujiwara armbar, leading Christian to tap immediately, but as Cody didn't let go of the hold Christian began to fight up. Once he got to his feet, Cody threw him into the ringpost. Cody shouted at the fallen Christian, "You're stealing my time! I'll make you a one-armed champion! I am Smackdown!".

Kane vs. Daniel Bryan: But wait, there's more! Per Mick Foley's order, the special timekeeper for this match is AJ! Kane looked on confused. Bryan started out with strikes on Kane, before being caught on a crossbody and slammed down. Both tonight and at No Way Out, it was a lot of fun watching Kane sell Bryan's strikes despite their size difference, that goes a long way towards making a smaller competitor look strong. I remember Undertaker doing that for CM Punk way back when as well. On the outside, Bryan dropkicked Kane into the ringpost, and as Kane rolled back into the ring Bryan nailed the running corner dropkick as well, but only for one. Bryan went for the YES!lock, but it was too early and Kane lifted him for a one-armed side slam instead. Kane went up top for his clothesline, but was interrupted by a Bryan dropkick. Bryan started to fire up and laid in with Yes Kicks. He went up to the top rope, but slipped as he jumped off and came up short, landing on his feet. Kane grabbed him by the throat and threw him to the opposite corner, but Bryan fought out and went up top again, this time hitting a huge flying dropkick for a near fall. Bryan laid in more Yes Kicks, this time kicking him in the head for the last one. He went up top for the diving headbutt, but Kane caught it with a choke and went for the chokeslam. Bryan countered the chokeslam mid-move to the guillotine choke! Kane looked to be fading, but powered out of the hold, only for Bryan to take him down for the YES!lock instead! Kane was close to the ropes and reached desperately for them, but couldn't quite get them. At that point, AJ apparently mistook Kane reaching for the ropes as a tapout, and she rang the bell. Bryan got up and celebrated in Bryan fashion, but the ref said that the match wasn't over. Frustrated, Bryan went for another running dropkick, but this time Kane dodged, leading Bryan to crash and burn. The chokeslam followed and finished the match. AJ rang the bell again more emphatically this time, then skipped off backstage as Kane watched her.

Mick Foley was out again to retry his talk to the fans. He got his cheap pop, but before he could do anything else he was interrupted by Heath Slater, much to the pleasure of Michael Cole. Heath Slater is apparently Michael Cole's new favourite superstar. Sucks to be the Miz nowadays, huh? Slater said that he was embarassed on Monday and he wanted redemption tonight. Foley said it wasn't embarassing, that Cyndi Lauper was a hell of a competitor, and if looks could kill Slater would have had Foley pushing up daisies. Foley said that Slater would be embarassed again after his match tonight against the following man.

Heath Slater vs. Zack Ryder: Hey, Zack Ryder is alive! This was pretty much a squash match. Slater got a neckbreaker in, but that was all. The Rough Ryder finished things quickly. Zack and Foley fist-pumped together, much to the delight of the fans.

Foley and Ryder were backstage after the break, preparing for the four hour drive back to Long Island. They ran into Damien Sandow, in a suit, who proceeded to mock Foley and the entire last segment. Foley was nonplussed, but Ryder took offense. Sandow said that Ryder was the biggest miscreant of all, and that he'd soon be putting an end to that. You're welcome!

The Usos vs. The Prime Time Players w/AW: AW introduced his team, hyped them up and led them down. The Usos dominated the early going, until Young bulled one Uso to his corner to let Titus tag in. O'Neill wore Uso down with power moves, but eventually got backdropped on a charge. Rather than make the hot tag, Uso fired up and hit the running butt bump in the corner. And for the love of God, Cole, it's not 'shades of Rikishi', it's 'shades of Umaga'. Rikishi did something entirely different with his butt in the corner! Young was in to try to interfere, but he got taken out by the other Uso, and a samoan drop was hit on O'Neill. As the legal Uso went up top, AW popped up to yell at the referee, causing him to miss Young crotching Uso on the ropes. O'Neill brought him down off the top rope and then hit Sky High for the pin. How long has it been since we had a tag match that didn't have a hot tag? Because that one didn't!

Backstage, the Prime Time Players were celebrating their win when they were confronted by Epico and Primo. AW asked what their problem was, so they decked him and a brawl started out, with Rosa Mendes screaming encouragement. Referees broke up the fight and the Prime Time Players ran for their lives.

Santino Marella was out next, but not for a match. He was here to show off the best signs in the crowd! Well, not the best signs, they were pretty bland. A sign that said "CM Punk" in crayon? Really? Santino pointed out a "John Chaina" sign, but eventually found an "I <3 Santino" sign and wanted to see who was holding it. It was a large woman, who at Santino's suggestion hopped over the barricade and into the ring. She was wearing Santino's t-shirt and had her own Cobra sock. Her and Santino had their cobras kiss, but that wasn't enough for her, as she grabbed Santino and kissed him long and hard. When she let go, Santino fainted away, lipstick smeared all over his face, one leg sticking up into the air.

Okay.

Dolph Ziggler w/Vickie Guerrero vs. Sheamus: Duelling chants to start. Dolph with a go-behind into a rollup for not even a one-count. Ziggler started doing pullups in the corner as Sheamus chuckled. The International followed, but Ziggler's dropkick on the charging Sheamus was brushed off like a gnat, then hit the Finlay Roll. Sheamus was bearing the wounds of his match with Ziggler from No Way Out, with bruises on his abdomen and a cut on the bridge of his nose that reopened partway through the match. On the outside, Dolph charged at Sheamus, but Sheamus caught his crossbody and KILLS DOLPH DEAD with a fallaway slam into the barricade. So lets cut to commercial! And after the break it's Ziggler in control of Sheamus. Guess he wasn't that dead after all. Sheamus flung Dolph over the top to the floor as the commentators mention how tough Dolph is to even be in the match after the brutal fallaway slam. Sheamus pounded away on the outside until Vickie Guerrero got too annoying for him. Her distraction allowed Ziggler to climp up the ring steps and jump off with a Fame-Asser on the standing Sheamus. Rolled back in, a neckbreaker followed for a one count. Ziggler hung Sheamus on the second rope, then dropkicked him in the face from the apron. Sheamus started a comeback with an Irish Hammer and a kneelift. He went for White Noise, but Dolph finally countered it into a sunset flip for two. A kick to the knee and jumping DDT got a close near-fall. Sheamus shoved Dolph down and went to the top rope, and as Dolph came flying in to try to catch him up top Sheamus met him mid-leap with a forearm to drop him. The battering ram hit for two. Sheamus hit his clubbing blow countalong in the ropes, but Ziggler was still fighting back as the commentators again played up his heart. Ziggler hit a kick to the knee that sent Sheamus limping away, but as he tried to follow up Sheamus hit the Brogue Kick out of nowhere for the win. A strong match! And we're out!

Was it just me, or did Ryback almost powerbomb jobber #2 right onto the crown of his head?

It's not just you. It looked like an attempted hurricanrana reversal by the jobber, which The Ryback then powered back up to throw him into the turnbuckle. It could very well have been him simply getting unbalanced and dropping the jobber instead, but catching him and lifting him back up. Whatever the case, no one got hurt!

I think I'm going to have to start calling him The Ryback now, after watching a Daniel Bryan interview today. I shall now attempt to follow the FAQ's directions and embed a video of said interview in this post. Wish me luck!

I saw that interview with D-Bry too. The Ryback has heat with Panera Bread! He should really try the Cinnamon Toast Crunch bagel.

Kane has not lost it in the ring, apparently he just needed fresh opponents. I haven't been this entertained with Kane since his feud with X-Pac's stable X-Factor.

“@WWEDanielBryan: Just finished eating at Panera Bread. The Ryback refused to even walk in...”

This should be The Ryback's first major storyline.

Man, X-Factor was so awesome. I still feel bad for Justin Credible for him being the odd-man out with no Championship in the group.

Speaking of X-Factor, Kane's critically acclaimed match with Albert will have its 11th anniversary this week: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4g9aFDPTYA

All I know is I could have watched David Otunga Pterodactyl dance into the #OtungaPose while Naomi and Cameron scowled in outrage at ringside for the whole show.

3 or 4. He just completed the second week of filming The Marine: Homefront. So he's not being "punished" by being kept off TV, although it's up to you if you consider starring in the third Marine movie "punishment".

Similarly, for those curious, Eve Torres is off TV for an NBC reality show called Stars Earn Stripes, so she's not being "punished" either.

I think the timing is perfect for him. After a break, a Sandow/Miz or Rhodes/Miz angle would make for some fun work on the mic and in the ring.

Love that his basic move was the Carlton dance, then a slide into the pterodactyl and back to the Carlton.

I hate to bump this thread. I almost think there should just be a separate thread talking about The Ryback.

Quite so: There was nothing at stake in the SummerSlam '10 main event, so it was basically a glorified Survivor Series contest. It probably didn't help that they kept removing and adding Edge and Jericho to the match, either. Insightful comments.
