TONIGHT! Mark Henry is the #1 contender for the World Heavyweight Championship, so we'll naturally get build for Orton/Henry. But first, Henry has some unfinished business with Sheamus in tonight's main event. Plus, we're still in Canada, eh? SmackDown is NOW!

WWE - The Champ Is Here!

Here's a video package for last week's battle royale, where Mark Henry pretty much destroyed everything in his way.

Opening credits - Do You Know Your Enemy? Opening pyro! We are taped from Calgary...(dramatic pause)...Alberta, Canada! Tonight, it's a SummerSlam Rematch, as Sheamus faces Mark Henry.

Hey! Let's start off with Bret "The Hitman" Hart, since we're in Calgary! Your hosts are the three "I'm running out of words to express how stupid I think these guys are". Cole calls Canada "Bizarro Land" again, just to REALLY endear himself to our Canadian fans. Bret's got the mic, so it's promo time!

Bret: Hello, Calgary! Due to unforeseen circumstances, Teddy Long isn't gonna be able to make it tonight, so the new COO of the WWE, Triple H, thought it might be a good idea and appointed me the special guest General Manager of SmackDown TONIGHT! Another first...is gonna be this Tuesday, a new Super SmackDown Live is gonna take place with the Superstars from SmackDown and the Superstars from Raw on one Super SmackDown special, live! And you wanna know the best part? The best part...is gonna be the main event, #1 contender Mark Henry is gonna take on Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Champion. And that's what I'm looking forward to!

And interruption comes from our big elephant in the room, Christian. I'm sure his rematch clause will say otherwise.

Christian: Hold on one second there, Bret, I just want to make something perfectly clear, not just to you, but the entire world. You see, it wasn't my fault that I lost at SummerSlam. I blame one person. I blame one person for my loss at SummerSlam and that person is YOUR friend, Edge! You see, I couldn't concentrate. After the things that he said to me, it distracted me and it cost me the World Heavyweight Championship. Now as far as tonight goes, everybody seems to be really excited that you're the special guest General Manager for SmackDown...but let's not forget one little thing. As the former World Heavyweight Champion, I'm entitled to an immediate rematch. That's right. I get one...more...match. And I want that match this Tuesday, live on SmackDown, my friend.

Bret: Well, you know, one thing I've noticed...is you don't listen to your friends very well. 'Cause at SummerSlam, Edge gave you the best advice anybody could give you. Stop being such a crybaby. You know, you're starting to become an embarrassment to your friends, you're starting to become an embarrassment to your family, you're starting to become an embarrassment to the WWE Universe, you're starting to become an embarrassment...to the World Title. And worst of all, you're starting to become an embarrassment to Canada. So you know what? Do everybody a favor, but most of all, do yourself a favor. Grow a set of jetties and be a man, start at the bottom and work yourself back up to the top like a man.

Christian: Stop embarrassing myself, huh? That's what you want me to do? Let's talking about embarrassing then, huh, Bret? Embarrassing is guys like YOU and guys like Edge...not being able to cope with the fact that when your career is over, it's really over. I mean, look at you, you stand out here in your leather jacket with your greasy, stringy long hair like you're 25 years old. Let it go! It's over! You know something else? Maybe you need to hear this, maybe Edge needs to hear this, too, so I hope he's listening. As far as the WWE goes, maybe the both of you can't stand the fact that I'm the only Canadian that's still relevant. But I figured you might act like this, it seems you have the same business acumen as Teddy Long. So I brought something with me, just hold on one sec. You might want to read that.

Looks like Christian's using the legal superpowers of Phoenix Wright (OBJECTION!) to put a stop (HOLD IT!) to Tuesday's Orton/Henry match. (TAKE THAT!)

Christian: Do you know what that is, Bret?

Bret: There's some big words on here.

Christian: Yeah, there is some big words. That's a legal document. That's court ordered. It was drawn up by my legal team and it clearly states that no WWE Superstar shall receive a World Heavyweight Championship match before I do first!

Bret: Well...can't fight the law. It looks like you got yourself a rematch for the World Title next week. You think you're pretty smart.

Christian: So you're giving me your word. Next week, live on SmackDown, I get get my rematch versus Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Championship.

Bret: Yeah, you got yourself a match. But what kind of match, that's the big question. What kind of match do you make for a guy that's got nothing but excuses? I think you deserve a Steel Cage match! How do you like those apples? Super SmackDown Live, we'll put you in a steel cage, that way you got no more excuses for anything! How do you like that?

Christian: You can't do this to me, Bret...

Next interruption comes from Mark Henry. He clearly doesn't look too happy about losing his title match on Tuesday, so Christian wisely bails. Bret, unwisely, does not.

Mark: Bret, I've been with this company 15 years. And I STILL have got to deal with this blatant disrespect. Now let's get this straight. I EARNED my title opportunity last week. And if I don't get it...somebody's gonna get hurt around here.

Bret: ...

Mark: No, don't speak until I tell you something! You see, I want the winner of that cage match next week! And I can promise you this, as much as I respect what you've done for this business and this industry, I can't be held responsible when I get angry...for what I might do to YOU and what I might do to anybody else.

Bret: You trying to intimidate me?

Mark: Bret, I don't have to intimidate NOBODY!

That cues our next interruption, from Sheamus.

Sheamus: Mark Henry, Mark, let me tell you a story, fella. A long time ago, me uncle Mick O'connor use to own a farm in County Claire. Now on that farm, he had this big, mean, ugly black bull. Now this bull was so mean, it would chase all the other farm animals away. So one day, my uncle had enough and he had that bull castrated. Don't make me have to do the same to you.

Sheamus comes in and dodges a couple of Henry strikes, before sending Henry packing with Irish Hammers. Henry takes his leave, knowing he'll get some later tonight. Hit Sheamus' music!

Later toinght, Ted DiBiase wants some revenge for last week, so he'll face Randy Orton!

Ad break - OMG! DVD promo

CHRISTIAN v. DANIEL BRYAN
This match was apparently booked during the break, so that brings Christian back out. Before the match starts, we get a Daniel Bryan video package.

Wrestling sequence starts us off, ending with Christian taking control. Christian goes for a corner monkey flip, but Bryan lands on his feet and hits the dragon screw legwhip. Christian backs into the corner, allowing Bryan to hit the YAAAAH corner dropkick for 2! Christian comes back with an uppercut, but Bryan blocks the floatover uppercut and takes Christian out with the suicide dive. Back in the ring, Bryan applies the surfboard and bridges into a near fall. Corner charge is countered, but Christian poses, which allows Bryan to come back with kicks. Bryan charges into the corner, but Christian hits Kofi's high kick counter before backdropping Bryan over the top. Thank you, Booker, for pointing out that THERE'S A MATCH GOING ON! Unfortunately, you lose points for pointing that out as we go to the next ad break.

We come back with Christian hitting the chinlock. Bryan escapes, but runs into an elbow for 2. Bryan tries to come back with European uppercuts, but Christian dumps him. Bryan lands on the apron and nearly gets caught, but he shoves Christian away and hits the top rope seated dropkick for 2. Bryan continues with European uppercuts and hits the running seated clothesline. Bryan hits a series of Tajiri kicks, but Christian dodges the last one. Christian tries to catch Bryan with Kofi's high kick counter again, but this time Bryan's wise to it and starts kicking the shit out of Christian. Top rope kneedrop gets two. Bryan wants the LeBell Lock, but Christian counters it and applies his rope choke and floatover uppercut. Second-rope spinning elbow hits. Christian sets up for the spear, but runs into a boot. Bryan goes for a springboard moonsault, nearly slipping off, but still lands on his feet. He runs into a Christian kick, as Christian gets the springboard second-rope sunset flip, but Bryan rolls through and kicks him in the face for 2. Bryan places Christian on the top rope, but the top rope 'rana is blocked and Christian hits the Tornado DDT for 2! Killswitch is countered into the LeBell Lock, but Christian reaches the ropes. Bryan goes for the corner dropkick and misses and Christian finishes with the Killswitch for pin at 12 and a half minutes shown.

WINNER: Christian - It's another great match, as Daniel Bryan's become this show's Mr. Reliable. I wouldn't mind seeing these two go again.

Later tonight, Randy Orton faces Ted DiBiase and Sheamus faces Mark Henry.

Backstage, here's Aksana and her saxophone music, to tell us to tune into Super SmackDown next week. Thanks for showing up, Aksana!

We come back with Tony Chimel about to make introductions for Wade Barrett and...some guy. Looks like we have a match here, though neither guy gets an entrance. Wait, is it promo time?

"I have orchestrated attacks on everybody from John Cena to the chairman of this company to living, breathing legends themselves, in fact, I have shaken the WWE to its very foundations on more than one occasion. I take this as a direct insult to myself, personally, as I see it as being beneath me as a man and as a competitor to be expected to face a dreg, such as this."

And...Wade walks out. Um...ok? That was...productive? The jobber's never named, by the way. Wasn't Barrett feuding with Daniel Bryan a few weeks ago? Are we just forgetting about that? So what was the point of that segment?

I don't know...cheese.

Your hosts are the three croutons. They're totally ok with Wade Barrett's actions, of course. What a waste of a segment. They shoot it off to a Raw Rewind. Blow me.

Later tonight, Sheamus faces Mark Henry.

Ad break

The WWE Smack of the Night is brought to you by 5-Hour Energy. It's the ADR/Bryan match from last Friday and the post-match Sin Cara run-in.

SIN CARA v. HEATH SLATER
Yeah, it looks like we're back to Mistico, unless I'm severely misjudging things. Heath Slater comes out to some new redneck rock music and I'm not a fan. Matthews calls him the Axl Rose of the WWE. He's an aging, batshit crazy rocker who gets his lights punched out by fashion moguls? I like G'n'R and all, but would it kill them to make a more contemporary reference? This Tuesday, we get the Alberto Del Rio/Sin Cara match that last week was logically leading up to.

Slater takes advantage of the full-screen match graphic to attack SC! By the way, it should be noted that we now have Sin Cara's mood lighting back. Apparently, the lighting effect is also back from its 30-day wellness suspension, wacka wacka! For anyone who cares (**cough**emma**cough**), Slater is now apparently being called the "One-Man Southern Rock Band" for some reason. SC hits Slater with a spinning headscissors and seated dropkick. Somersault corner senton hits. Springboard right hand hits for 2. Slater comes back quickly, but gets backdropped to the apron. Dropkick puts Slater on the floor. SC takes out Slater with a top-rope crossbody to the outside. Springboard somersault senton and Asai moonsault get...the pin in a two-minute special.

WINNER: Sin Cara - Um...ok, then. That was...brief. Sq...uash?

Your hosts are the three knuckleheads. They shoot it off to footage of Orton wiping out DiBiase last week.

Randy Orton's making his way through the backstage area. His match with Ted DiBiase is next!

Ad break - Super SmackDown promo

RANDY ORTON v. TED DiBIASE (w/CODY RHODES & MINIONS): NON-TITLE MATCH
DiBiase comes out to Cody's music, along with Cody and his minion brigade. But first, some words from Cody Rhodes.

"So Randy, I see you with the World Heavyweight Championship and I know it means you're the best at what you do. But what you do is NOT what I do! Because what I do is I...I perform miracles. I am resurrecting the status of the Intercontinental Championship, resurrecting the career of my dear friend, Ted DiBiase, so...I hope you DO believe in miracles, because...I do."

Wrestling sequence starts us off, which DiBiase wins until Orton reverses a side headlock. Running the ropes sequence leads to an Orton dropkick for 2. DiBiase grabs the side headlock again, but Orton reverses it a second time. DiBiase whips Orton into the corner, but Orton bounces off with a clothesline. Orton slaps on the side headlock again, leading to a DiBiase clothesline. Snapmare and running boot get 2. DiBiase measures Orton for a dropkick, so Orton catches it and catapults DiBiase into the corner. Orton makes the comeback and hits the THESZ PRESS, BY GAWD! Orton looks for the hanging DDT, but stops to wipe out Cody first. Orton brings DiBiase back in and opts to try and RKO Cody. DiBiase catches Orton with the baseball slide in mid-RKO, in a pretty cool sequence! That takes us to our next ad break.

We come back with DiBiase hitting a backbreaker and dropkick for 2. DiBiase climbs the ropes and Orton catches him with a right hand. Both men trade blows, but Orton gets the better of the exchange. Second-rope superplex gets 2. DiBiase charges into the corner and eats a boot. Orton makes the babyface comeback again and hits the snap powerslam. He runs into a boot, though. DiBiase clothesline is nearly turned into Orton's backbreaker, but DiBiase gets a schoolboy off of that for 2! DiBiase hits a sitout spinebuster for 2. DiBiase goes for Dream Street, but Orton uppercuts out of it. Hanging DDT hits. VIPER COIL! RKO is nearly turned into Dream Street! Orton snapmares out of it. DiBiase misses a clothesline and Orton scoops up that opening and nails him with the RKO for the pin at 12 minutes.

WINNER: Randy Orton - A good match by DiBiase's standards. Got dull at points, but I've seen a lot worse.

Post-match, Cody helps DiBiase up...and brings him back down with Cross-Rhodes! Cody grabs a paper bag and puts it over DiBiase's head. And that'll put an end to this partnership, I reckon. Hit Cody's music!

Let's take a look at that BRUTAL spot where Mark Henry slammed Sheamus through the barricade. The rematch is later tonight!

Ad break - The Greatest Yadda Yadda Yadda DVD promo

TAMINA v. KELLY KELLY: NON-TITLE MATCH
Tamina doesn't get an entrance, so don't expect this to go well for her. Natalya gives us a Wrestling Challenge insert promo, because it's not like she's...you know...a part of the HART FAMILY or anything. Bringing her out for a Calgary show would be crazy talk!

Kelly dodges Tamina and hits her with the Thesz Press. She gives the deadly ASS SPANK! Tamina is unfazed by this most devastating of maneuvers, but misses with a clothesline. AAAAAAH Swinging headscissors sends Tamina to the apron. Cartwheel choke gets to a four count. Tamina hangs Kelly on the top rope. Bodyslam hits and it's time to hit the chinlock. Kelly counters it...sort of. Kelly grabs a smears Tamina's face to the mat. Bulldog hits. Handspring elbow puts Tamina down. My bum is on your lips! My bum is on your lips! Kelly comes off the second rope and gets caught. Kelly falls through and finishes with the K2 in another two minute special.

WINNER: Kelly Kelly - Tamina's no Beth and she couldn't do much to cover for Kelly's awful offense.

Backstage, the demoted Matt Striker talks to Jinder Mahal and The Great Khali. Mahal blames Khali for getting eliminated from the battle royale last week. Mahal says that Khali has been re-educated. He says that tonight, Khali will dominate Ezekiel Jackson. OH, SWEET MERCIFUL CRAP ON A POGO STICK! Is that match seriously happening???

Later tonight, Sheamus faces Mark Henry.

Ad break

THE GREAT KHALI (w/JINDER MAHAL) v. EZEKIEL JACKSON
If ever a match had the potential to be "bowling shoe ugly"...let's get this over with.

Khali throws Jackson down and poses. Jackson hammers away, but runs into an overhead right. Corner chop and clothesline put Jackson down. Worn down from an intense 20 seconds of action, Khali goes to the nerve hold. Jackson escapes and hits the clothesline. Jackson hits a corner splash, but then runs into a Khali elbow. Khali hits a big boot and clamps on the Kona Crusher. Jackson tries to power out of it, but then opts for the ropes instead. Crowd is so behind Jackson that they chant "Oilers suck!" Khali tries to choke some more, so referee Scott Armstrong pushes him back, allowing Mahal to get some token intereference in. Khali tries to nail Jackson with the JUDO CHOP~!, but Jackson ducks and Mahal gets wiped out instead. Jackson picks up Khali with the Torture Rack in a VERY impressive visual for the submission in another two-minute special.

WINNER: Ezekiel Jackson - As ugly as expected, but that Torture Rack was pretty cool. Not "trending on Twitter" cool, like Matthews thinks, but cool nonetheless.

Later tonight, Sheamus faces Mark Henry. Cole, it's probably not a good idea to refer to Sheamus as "The Great White" for this match.

Ad break - WWE ShopZone promo. WWE Raw promo.

Backstage, let's join the demoted Todd Grisham for one last time. He's with Randy Orton, asking about Tuesday's match. Orton says he'll take the last of Christian's pride on Tuesday before moving on to Mark Henry. So long, Todd!

Let's take a look at the AWESOME Mark Henry video package, culminating with Henry's big win last week.

Sheamus and Mark Henry are coming to the ring. They face off in the main event, next!

Ad break - WWE Raw promo

"THE WORLD'S STRONGEST MAN" MARK HENRY v. "THE CELTIC WARRIOR" SHEAMUS
Once again, we take a look at Henry driving Sheamus through the barricade at SummerSlam to win their first match by countout.

We start with the lockup, where Henry asserts the power advantage. Another lockup ends with Henry winning again. Sheamus opts for strikes, but gets overpowered again. Sheamus counters a corner charge and takes Henry down by the legs before beating him down into the corner. Running knee into the corner hits, as Sheamus continues the onslaught before covering for 2. Henry telegraphs a backdrop and gets kicked, but Sheamus runs into a big boot. Henry hits a corner charge and a backbreaker for 2. Henry whips Sheamus into the corner with authority! Sheamus tries to come back, but eats a headbutt. Time to hit the bear hug. Sheamus headbutts out of it, but gets shoved into the corner. Sheamus elbows a Henry corner charge and climbs to the second rope, but gets picked up in a military press! Sheamus counters the military press slam into a DDT! Sheamus comes back with Irish Hammers. Sheamus tangles up Henry in the ropes and hits the 10 chest strikes. He counts outloud to educate the crowd, which is a brilliant babyface tactic. Running knee from the apron hits once, twice, and thrice. Sheamus climbs the ropes and hits the Irish Missile for 2! Henry bails and pulls out Sheamus along with him. Henry chucks Sheamus into the barricade so hard that it nearly takes out the camera! Henry starts cleaning house on the announce table, sending the announce team scattering, lest they get some more of what they got last week. Henry scoops up Sheamus for the World's Strongest Slam, but Sheamus floats over and takes him out with the Brogue Kick, sending Henry spilling over the announce table! Sheamus dumps a chair over Henry to keep him down and runs back in for the countout win at about 7 minutes.

WINNER BY COR: Sheamus - The series is tied at 1-1. Not a pretty match, but it got its point across.

Post-match, Henry turns over the announce table and starts rearranging furniture. Henry comes back and the fight is back on! Sheamus keeps him out with a running knee, but makes the mistake of coming off the apron, where Henry catches him and drills him into the apron. Henry tries to drive Sheamus into the steel post, but Sheamus falls back and pushes him into the steel steps. Sheamus grabs the steel steps and CHUCKS them at Henry, but misses and gets wiped out with a clothesline. World's Strongest Slam on the steel steps will end Sheamus' night. Henry stands over Sheamus' corpse to end the show.

FINAL THOUGHT

Well, they have to get Christian's mandated rematch out of the way if they ever want to move on to another feud...ANY other feud. So hopefully, Tuesday will end that feud, once and for all. And since there's nothing else for Christian to do, I still think he's getting punted.

It feels like another one-match show, but as long as those matches are as consistently entertaining as they are, I don't mind. And even the crap wasn't as crappy as it could have been.

Until next week!

Twas there live. Seems like they edited that Slater/Sin Cara match to nothing, although that could be a perception issue on my part since they did it 3 times. Original was botched, so was the redo they did just after the match. They missed getting a really sweet shot: near where I was sitting a kid w/ a SinCara mask on his dad's shoulders came to the barrier near the ringpost as SC was celebrating and he pointed to the kid.

Only other thing they redid was Sheamus knocking Mark out of the ring in the opening.

We had a nice "TABER CORN" chant during the divas match. Kelly actually got a much bigger pop than I was expecting.

Post-show HHH came out & said he loves Calgary. Of course this is the 1st time he's been there in years. Last time he appeared was on Raw after the post-WM20 Backlash. At the last Raw before Cena was drafted he was even advertised for weeks to be in a match but he just had a taped promo. That was the same Raw Christian came out and got cheered like crazy, so as you could tell it was hard for him to get booed. In the dark match (street fight vs Orton for title) he really went all out by saying Toronto a lot and plugging the Maple Leafs. Of course he got sharpshootered after losing.

Watching it I LOL'd at the "Renee Paquette shut up" sign that was prominent for a lot of the show. She works for the network that airs WWE, they do these frequent cut-ins during the show, although she was off this week. I was pretty close to that sign but never saw it. Would've shaked their hand.

Interesting that a company which gets humbled by GLAAD for the slightest infraction willingly scripts Seamus to go out and compare Mark Henry to a mean black bull who his dad castrated in the old country. I don't even know where to begin with how utterly offensive that is and all the ugly history of Black America in invokes.

I figured they'd save Christian for October, considering they have HITC scheduled. That would be an ideal blowoff for Christian/Orton. I get that it's quite tired and I get that they bent over backwards to totally shred every iota of credibility Christian could possibly have, but do they have more compelling alternatives? Henry will challenge at Night of Champions, which will almost certainly suck, then what? Cody is doing well with his persona but no one will believe he can beat Orton. They have no heels built for this guy. They should have kept it on Christian at Summerslam, then had him weasel out of return matches for a couple months while deflecting bouts with Zeke, Sin Cara, or maybe even Seamus thus building his credibility back up, and then had Orton win it decisively at Survivor Series. Now Christian's going to lose whatever he's got left, which ain't much, and Orton will...be boring again.

You can't have newly-turned heel Natalya come out in front of the Calgary crowd and get cheered like a super duper babyface. Better to use her to deliver another insipidly boring promo for the audience at home. DUD.

If there's one thing I'll remember Summer 2011 for besides the Summer of Punk, it'll be that this was the summer we watched Kelly Kelly squash the other Divas every week with Five Moves of Doom Hulk Hogan-style.

That's hardly fair. The lucha style is a very, very difficult style of wrestling. And it takes two to tango; I'm sure Heath Slater carries his share of the blame for mistakes in timing and execution.

Having said that, I for one enjoyed The Best of Sin Cara vs. Heath Slater Highlight Reel that aired on Smackdown.

Do they do the highlight-reel treatment for anyone else who botches moves, or just for the Sin Caras?

Heath Slater's been the "One-Man Southern Rock Band" for some time now, at least since his initial appearance on NXT. They superseded individuals' gimmicks for the most part with Nexus and The Corre, but the last time I saw him on Superstars (post-Corre breakup), he did a promo where he called himself that.

This thing where D.Bryan cleanly loses a long match every week is kind of stupid. Except for the good long match part. It's one thing to use him to rebuild Christian or give ADR a strong win but why in the heck did he lose to Wade at SummerSlam if they weren't even going to continue to feud? Is the idea that they gave him the briefcase so he has some equity to spare, or is it just usual WWE "I love you, I hate you" push-pull stuff?

Their conflict is that Hunico has gone through reprogramming and wasn't a Mexican legend so he'll be a humbler citizen backstage. But he also has a lot less charisma and is a less spectacular flier than real Sin Cara, so the fear is he could kill the gimmick and the cash if he has no aura anymore. Say what you will about Mistico's WWE performance, but the act got demonstrably over without doing promos and while barely even being in feuds.

    Heath Slater's been the "One-Man Southern Rock Band" for some time now, at least since his initial appearance on NXT. They superseded individuals' gimmicks for the most part with Nexus and The Corre, but the last time I saw him on Superstars (post-Corre breakup), he did a promo where he called himself that.


The "southern" part of the moniker is new.

I don't think he has to worry too much. I think the problem is they have done such a poor job building everyone else up that they can build them off of him without him losing too much steam, because he is still the one carrying a good part of the matches.

When Randy Orton and John Cena steamroll through the whole roster it can be damaging to everybody if there isn't a solid group in the second tier and with no Edge, Rey, HBK/Taker (not second tier but still somebody credible) or Big Show to feud with you end up with a lot of heels having to fight Kofi Kingston 700 times.

Roster balance is clearly something WWE is having a problem with these days. Benoit had lengthy losing streaks as well.

Is it really sad that it took this facebook page for me to finally bother to find out this poor guy's real name? I kept thinking of him as Mini-Coach this entire time.

I -think- tonight was a good show...but I'll be damned if that closing segment didn't just about suck all the joy out of it. I'll probably mix up the order, but that's what you get for reviewing the show five hours later.
