It's my life, my time, my rights, my rhyme. It's Sssmackdown!, from Birmingham, AL, and a Fashion Report, too!
In the back, Hebner serves as parking attendant.
Rey, in black "Rey 619" plate tshirt, cyan/black mask and black (right)/white (left) pants, wearing the Cruiserweight Title, with FOOTAGE! from last week, and Kidman, in black (left)/white (right) fullcuts with laurels, vs. Tajiri, in black pants with gold dragon and red flaming left hem and Nunzio, in red "FBI" undies. Corderas in the blue. BoottotheHead to a pin. Post-match belting. A nice match.
In the back, Vince, in white shirt with vertical grey stripes (top two buttons undone), strokes Sable's leg. BigShow in a black suit with blue shirt AND A TIE! reads a magazine. Steph, in black skirt, open shirt and a v-neck (straight hair with heavy hilights) interrupts. Brocky arrives, in demon-skull black muscle shirt, to unsettle Steph, and request a match. Steph vs. Brock? The dialogue was horribly dragging here.
In the back, Torri and Nidia meet with Dawn Marie-Wilson.
Shaniqua, in silver zip-up shorts and bikini top, vs. DM-W, in sparkly red lace-up shorts and bikini top. Run-in to Shaniqua by DQ? A face beat-down post-match. "Eh."
In the back, Steph ponders whilst Sable Greek-choruses her. Next week, the Ironman Match!
Beniot, in red "Wolverine" tights with black splats, vs. Rhyno, in black "Rhyno" singlet. Chioda is in the blue. Albert gets a run-in. Then Adbreak interferes and cuts-off Cole. Crossface to a submission.
In the APA office, APA, Orlando, Mattitude, FBI play cards. Talk ensues about Bruce's and Shannon's status as servants.
Cena, in Bears' #54 (Urlacher) jersey and blue jeans, beats cars with a chain while Hebner "explains" the rules.
Cena, already there, vs. Eddie, driving up in a low-riding pickup, in black sleeveless "Cheat 2 Win" tshirt and blue jeans. Hebner officiates. The B-Teamers (same guys who were playing cards) are in attendance. A lawnmower?! I hope their insurance covers rental cars. The lighter! Chavo with a hubcap! Frogsplash to a pin. Eddie "I have a headache." - what an understatement. A nice brawl.
APA, in blue jeans and black "APA" sleeveless tshirts, vs. Mattitude, in blue "MVH1" sleeveless tshirt and blue-green pants with black pockets, and Shannon, in red/silver/black pants. Corderas again. Clothesline to a pin. An average match. Post-match, Bruce brings some beer down upon a silver platter.
Tazz, in black suit and golden yellow shirt with tie, and Cole, in black shortsleeves pimp Lesnar/Angle, via FOOTAGE!
Vince, in the ring, brings-out (the real) Brock, in black buttskull undies, vs. Steph, in blakc latex suit with collars (ooo - me likey!). Too much makeup, and the dyejob is overdone, too. Vince blabs. Ummm...non-match. Angle out for the save, in blue "You Suck" sleeveless tshirt.
The Mullets - um, no. I don't need to go out of my way to become stupider. MXC for me, baby!
Overall: An average Smackdown! Entertaining, but nothing blow-away.
Edit: Oops - lost a few paragraphs there. Needless to say, they've been re-attached.
Meanwhile at the Birmingham airport, a Hertz manager is shitting his pants.
Vince and Steph absolutely sucked tonight. They made Lesnar look like an acclaimed character actor. And my first thought when Steph came to the ring in that black outfit was "So THAT'S why Big Show needed something else to wear."
Speaking of which, Big Show actually looked pretty good in that suit.
I liked the way they set up the street fight, or whatever they called it. Cena and Guerrero did a great job. Having the wrestlers around getting into it was pretty cool too.
I never thought I'd say this to any of the WWE women, but Shaniqua, GET the boob job.
Was there any point at all to jobbing out Hardy and Moore to the APA?

Well, there is the matter of the APA currently running a storyline with the tag team champions, so it would be kind of pointless to build up a team that isn't likely to be going for the tag titles anytime soon.
And as much as I've been singing Shannon Moore's praises, as soon as I saw the match my immediate thought was 'Cool, we're going to see Shannon absolutely murdered by a Clothesline from Hell.'
Incidentally, that was the only match or skit I saw all night. As per normal, lately, I forgot that Smackdown was on and tuned in just in time to see Version 1's entrance hit. Then our satellite chose to die again immediately after the match. Funny how the only time in the last 3 months that the satellite has crapped out has been during seemingly (only seemingly since I didn't see them for myself to judge) crappy segments, the end of Smackdown and the Coach/Snow vs. JR/Lawler segment at the end of Raw last week.
I was feeling blue, and I hoped SmackDown! would cheer me up.
Suffice it to say, I'm feeling blue.
Sometimes I ask myself why I watch WWE after all the crap it's given me. HLA, necro, HHH, and so on. And then it hits me. That one simple phrase that can be modified and used for anything that gets you down, yet makes you keep coming back.
Every episode has the potential to be the best one ever, and I'll be damned if I'm going to miss it after sitting through this shit.
Maybe it's just me (it probably is) but Steph looks like shes in better shape lately. Either that or shes just wearing very flattering clothing but I like what I see as long as she doesn't talk or wrestle or kick monsters in the balls.
They had a main event of Dudley Boys v. La Resistance with a run in by J. Peterman... or did no one watch the Mullets?
I thought Smackdown was pretty good last night. The half-hour cut did cheat us out of a main event, but it also forced them to pack in some more action (too bad it didn't force them to cut down Brock's appearance in the back). I was fine with the street fight, but I guess a little blood would have made it more "realistic" (since title belts are known to bust a man's head open).
I don't want to see a women's division on Smackdown, so I really hope they don't bring in Lita or Alexis Laree to be the one to take out Shaniqua. I really hope they send her over to Raw instead. They won't. Both divisions will be watered down and we'll be forced to watch more Torrie Wilson matches. Bleh.
Shannon Moore, for taking the Clothesline. Bradshaw, for delivering the best clothesline in the business. Farooq, for the dry humor. Eddie Guerrero and John Cena, for putting on a fine example of a street fight. Big Show's tailor. Brock Lesnar, he's really starting to crack me up. Vince McMahon, for showing that no matter what the situation, he can act. Shaniqua, for being a heel woman.
Brock Lesnar, 'cause i'm not sure he's supposed to make me laugh. Torrie Wilson, terrible chair shot. Bruce the Butler, because R. D. Reynolds will remember you fondly. Sable and Stephanie McMahon, because two building blocks being smashed into each other would provide the same quality entertainment.
These are just the trifle opinions of myself, however.
Kane gets flustered that he didn't get to do something silly this week. Ho hum.
Is Bruce the Butler an indy worker or just some random WWE employee?
"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997
WWE doesn't usually do it anymore, but that sure looked like fake blood all over Cena. The color was off- it was too orange. I think they threw some fake blood on him because they knew they gyped up with the lack of blade jobs. (I didn't see any wounds.)
Is it just me, or did the headlight on one of those cars NOT break after getting hit with the shovel? I heard the glass breaking sound effect, but when I looked at the car, the headlight looked still intact.
I enjoyed the show last night. I though Benoit vs. Rhyno and Eddie vs. Cena were the standout moments. By the way, has anyone else noticed that Benoit seems to have a match at the same time every show (8:30 pm)?
Just one problem, though: I liked The Mullets too! :-(
As I recall, those pretty much useless pre-commercial vignettes were implemented to keep people from flipping to Nitro. Unless the show is so actively horrible now, few are gonna flip to anything else in mid-show.
