Nothing? Really? Ok, well, I guess I'll start the SmackDown! thread for the week.

-Batista d. Domino via Batista Bomb. Batista destroys Deuce after the match and makes both guys look like chumps. Oh well, it's not like they're the tag team cham...oh wait...
-Khali appears on the Tron and gives the deadly Iron Claw to the camera, as absurd as that sounds. Ranjin Singh is SUCH a boring promo; it's just incredibly apropos that he's the second for Khali, the worst wrestler on the planet.
-Chavo comes out dressed as Rey, complete with entrance and music, in a great segment. He proceeds to beat Eugene, who's actually fooled by Chavo's cunning disguise!
-Mark Henry wins in a squash and then delivers a boring promo that makes Ranjin Singh look like The Rock. He says something about being Mel Silverback or something. The only noteworthy thing here is the appearance of the druid at the end of the segment, meaning they're setting up Mizark as Undertaker's return feud. Even though they just HAD a feud less than two years ago!
-Victoria beats Torrie Wilson. Yeah, I can see why these two got moved to SmackDown.
-Matt Hardy d. Finlay by count out. Jamie Noble pulls Cruiserweight champion Hornswaggle out from underneath the ring to distract Finlay.
-Finlay looks for Noble and knocks Shannon Moore's drink out of his hands, which happens to land on Kane. Good God, why is someone ALWAYS spilling a drink on Kane?! You'd think since Chris Jericho did it more than five years ago that people would learn their lesson by now. Naturally, Kane hands Finlay his ass.
-Kane then squashes Sylvan with the chokeslam. I guess this is what Sylvan was repackaged for. Notable only for Finlay's post-match attack.
-Masterlock challenge wastes everyone's time.
-I'm absolutely shocked Flair could keep a straight face when he talked about ranking Khali's Claw over Jack Lanza's and the Von Erichs' versions. Of course, we're still talking about the IRON CLAW, so color me less than impressed.
-Khali squashes Flair. The Nature Boy had no chance against the clubbing blows, JUDO CHOP~!, and Iron Claw! Batista comes down to get some, but also gets clawed for his troubles.

This show belonged to Chavo, who ruled the day. It's just a shame that he's stuck in a program with Rey, since that feud was already played out when Rey got injured. Kane and Finlay should be a decent program, but there's nothing else to look forward to here. The Great Khali's Reign of Terrible continues.

I missed SD! tonight - it was replaced by baseball?

Who was in the Masterlock challenge? I prayed for the segment's death when Lashley broke it ... wishful thinking I guess.

The Masterlock victim was John McChesney, from right here in Youngstown Ohio!

I still don't know why they broke up Khali and Daivari. Runjin Singh is almost as bad a promo guy as Khali is in the ring. Singh can complete a sentence, but he can't make anybody give a damn. It's times likes this when they really need a cowardly heel manager like a Jim Cornette or a Bobby Heenan. Daivari could have done that pretty well. Better than that Runjin Singh putz anyway.

So Sylvan remains worthless. I figure a losing streak for a while, then he gets put with Maryse on TV and... nobody cares. Still.

There's a fair amount of talent on this show. Hardy's upped his game, MVP is a nice surprise, Finlay is always worth watching... I just can't stand how much time they waste on roid monsters and guys who can't wrestle. Argh.

Blah blah blah. Same whining as it ever was.

But I still love Hornswoggle.

Surely you're intrigued by the convicted felon who's going to start following Masters from town to town? No? Oh.

Actually, I'm almost certain that was CAPW champion Jason Bane, but if somebody could verify that for me I'd appreciate it. He's a NE Ohio talent, so if it is him I wouldn't expect that angle to go any further. I've been wrong before, though.

People are congratulating him over on his MySpace -- I don't see anything from Bane himself but his layout's kind of unreadable.

No love for Eugene FINALLY figuring out he wasn't wrestling Rey when Chavo took off the mask..
And then do a series of Guerrero moves on Chavo!
Gory bomb, 3 amigos and then missing the froggy after pointing up to the sky and waving.
That was the best bit of the show.

I liked how Masters backed down when the guy said he was a felon (was it manslaughter? i forgot)

Not a bad show, but other than the Eugene bit nothing really stood out to me.

While there is talent on the show, and guys worth watching, there is an underlying fear that as soon as a guy gets over, he's off to Raw. Look for MVP on the A show within a year. SD! has become such a breeding ground for under card talent, that it almost looks like Batista, Taker, and Rey are slumming it by being on the show.

The wrestling (Khali notwithstanding) is still superior to Raw, however.

Tell me about it. He should have never stopped using the TREE SLAM~! Much less ridiculous-looking than the claw.

Even better than Daivari would be to put Khali with Estrada.

I'd say Terkay was surprising. He was just on ECW last night seconding Elija Burke and took a cane shot from The Sandman. I thought he had a good look and was under the impression that he could go far with the right push.
