WOW! Syfy's showing ELEKTRA! It's good to know that no matter how bad this week's SmackDown might be, it only can only be an improvement from this piece of garbage.

TONIGHT! It's a special Super SmackDown LIVE and it's a Blast From the Past! It means tonight will be full of nostalgia and, unlike The 3 Stooges, some of it might actually be FUNNY! Plus, Vince McMahon John Laurinaitis looks to punish that dastardly "Stone Cold" Steve Austin Sheamus for his actions from last week. SmackDown is NOW!

WWE - The Champ Is Here!

Here's a promo for the show you're about to watch!

Opening credits - Do You Know Your Enemy? Gotta love how half of the people in these credits are still on the roster, yet haven't been on the show in months. Opening pyro!

We take a look back at Daniel Bryan dumping AJ last week. Tonight, Daniel Bryan is on Piper's Pit! AWESOME!

We are NOT TAPED from Hampton, VA! LILIAN GARCIA welcomes in MEAN GENE OKERLUND! Gene brings out SHEAMUS for tonight's opening promo. Sheamus starts talking and he's already getting "Daniel Bryan" chants. Sheamus apologizes for his actions last week against the referee and publically apologizes for Brogue Kicking Chad Patton last week. He's interrupted by SUPER DAVE LAURINAITIS and my interest for this segment immediately dips to zero. Let's just speed through this. Johnny McMahon puts "Stone Cold" Sheamus on SUPER DUPER PROBATION and he'll get fired if he touches an official. Oh, and Daniel Bryan teams up with Alberto Del Rio to face Sheamus and Mean Gene Okerlund tonight. Yippee. Hit the trumpets! Whatever. How soon before they pull the plug on this derivative act already? Is there even a logical reason that Laurinaitis suddenly started picking on Sheamus, other than "John Laurinaitis is a bad, bad person?"

Randy Orton is backstage and he's joined...by "Cowboy" Bob Orton! "Cowboy" Bob wishes Randy luck against Mark Henry tonight. Their match is next!

Ad break

"THE APEX PREDATOR" RANDY ORTON v. "THE WORLD'S STRONGEST MAN" MARK HENRY
We take a look at Orton beating Kane last week in a No DQ match. We also see a graphic for Mark Henry facing CM Punk for the WWE Championship next Monday.

Orton goes to work on Henry, but Henry chucks Orton to the corner. Orton continues to hammer away, but eats a headbutt. Orton tries for a whip, but it's reversed. Orton next tries the corner punches, but Henry takes him down with a Davey Boy powerslam for 2. We see "Cowboy" Bob Orton watching from the back to take us to our next ad break.

We come back with Henry hitting the chinlock. Orton tries to fight out of it, but gets slammed. Big fat splash gets 2. Announcers argue for the millionth time. That never gets old. It's also much harder to ignore, thanks to Henry's slow offense. Avalanche hits. Stall. Another avalanche. Two count. BORRRRRRING! "Daniel Bryan" chant. Second big fat splash misses. Third avalanche eats boot and Orton makes the babyface comeback. DDT gets 2. So Orton tries for the Hanging DDT, but Henry tries for the World's Strongest Slam! Orton slips out of it, but can't hit the RKO and gets shoved to the outside. Henry scoops up Orton, but gets shoved into the steel post. Orton bounces Henry's head off the steel post and goes back in, but here's Kane's pyro. Oh, hell.

So KANE is on the TitanTron. Kane notes that he beat Orton at Wrestlemania, but Orton proved last week that he could be just as savage. Kane wants another match. I really DON'T want another match. Do I get a vote? We see the camera pan out, as Kane's hovering over the corpse of "Cowboy" Bob Orton.

We go backstage, as Orton's frantically searching for Kane. Orton finds his father, but Kane ambushes him with a lead pipe and leaves him laying. "I'm a sucker for family reunions."

So yeah, this feud MUST continue! Whether we like it or not!

Yeah, so let's call it...

WINNER: No Contest

Ad break - I never, EVER want to see Charles Barkley in drag again. Ever!

We are LIVE from Hampton, VA! Let's take a look at what we just saw a couple of minutes ago.

Your hosts are the three parasites. They promise updates. Whatever.

We look backstage at Tony Atlas and The Million Dollar Man! Atlas says it's going to be a good old-fashioned squash match! Well, good to see they're not lying to themselves about it.

LILIAN GARCIA introduces BENNY CAMER for our next match. Seriously, don't they have enough guys on the roster just BEGGING for airtime? Do they need to bring in outside jobbers for this? So like last week, the jobber cuts a promo, as we look at Pat Patterson and Hillbilly Jim join the legends in the back.

BENNY CAMER v. RYBACK
Ryback immediately starts off with the "KNOCK THE PISS OUT OF YOU" LARIAT!!! Camer's dead weight now, so Ryback picks him up from the ground into a torture rack. Running Samoan drop finishes in less than a minute.

WINNER: Ryback - That lariat is just AWESOME!

We go backstage to Heath Slater and Tyson Kidd. Slater tries to recruit Kidd, while casually noting that Justin Gabriel is injured. Slater says he's found a legend to manage them tonight against The Usos. Slater notes that this guy told him he could be a Honky Tonk Man, which Kidd points out isn't necessarily a compliment. So that brings in Jimmy Hart, who at least gets a mild pop from the crowd. Slater and Kidd face The Usos next!

Ad break - Raw promo

Dream Machines is next! John Cena will be on later this season!

MICK FOLEY makes his entrance to a decent pop! Mick takes a spot at the announce table, so at least the commentary should be a little more entertaining.

HEATH SLATER & TYSON KIDD (w/JIMMY HART) v. THE USOS
I'd sarcastically ask if I'm watching WWE Superstars, but at this point, I'm just happy to see that this company remembers these guys still exist.

Jimmy Hart works the megaphone, just like the old days! Awesome! Kidd gets armdragged to the apron, but he floats over into a roll-up, but Slater made the blind tag. Slater hits Jimmy with a neckbreaker for 2. We hit the chinlock, because Slater almost worked a whole 30 seconds. He's such a waste. Jey gets the tag and makes the babyface comeback. Corkscrew forearm hits! Umaga buttsplash gets 2! Pier 4 breaks out and Kidd gets taken down with a Samoan Drop. Mick quotes the late, great Owen Hart ("Enough is enough and it's time for a change!") and puts on Socko to threaten Jimmy Hart. Jimmy sees trouble, so he runs through the ring to get away! That distracts Slater, which allows Jey to hit the elevated Samoan Drop! Jimmy finishes with the Superfly Splash in a two-minute special.

WINNERS: The Usos - Decent filler.

Post-match, Slater tosses Jimmy Hart into Socko to almost no reaction. Wow...Mick doesn't get pops like he used to. Foley takes the megaphone to no reaction. Cole buries the whole segment in his passive-aggressive manner that makes you want to punch him in the face.

Later tonight, Sheamus and Mean Gene Okerlund faces Alberto Del Rio and Daniel Bryan. We look again at Bryan dumping AJ. Piper's Pit is coming up next!

Ad break

The sounds of bagpipes bring out ROWDY RODDY PIPER...and yes, his theme is available on iTunes, because...MONEY! Piper grabs the mic and it's promo time!

Piper: I miss you! I do! Tonight...tonight on Piper's Pit, I got a man named Daniel Bryan. Now...Daniel Bryan is a man that lost the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania XXVIII in 18 seconds. And he blames it on his girlfriend. Now...there's a piece of footage I want you to see. Mr. Footage Man, play some bongos for these people.

We take a look again at Bryan dumping AJ from last week.

Piper: Ladies and gentlemen, Daniel Bryan.

DANIEL BRYAN comes out in his brand new YES! YES! YES! shirt! This week, we get six YES's! And here come the YES chants!

Piper: You seem very happy for a man who's lost the World's Heavyweight Championship...in 18 seconds.

Bryan: Oh yeah, Roddy? Oh yeah? Well, guess what? I just had a meeting with Mr. Laurinaitis and he granted me my rightful return match for the World Heavyweight Championship. Well, guess what, everybody? This new match, Sheamus will not be able to fluke his way out of, like he did at Wrestlemania. This match will clearly prove who the better man is. Because not only do I want to pin Sheamus 1-2-3, I want to make The Great White tap out. And now I can do both! Because at Extreme Rules, we're gonna have a 2 out of 3 falls match! And I assure you, the reason that I lost my title, AJ, will be nowhere to be found.

Piper: I don't know about that. I don't know if AJ will be at Extreme Rules. But I do know this. I know that AJ is in the building and I know that I like AJ and it's MY show. So, AJ, come on down!

AJ comes down to a tepid reaction and grabs the mic.

AJ: I can't believe that I'm on Piper's Pit right now. Thank you, Roddy.

Piper: My pleasure.

AJ: Hi, Daniel.

Piper: Whoa, you're saying hi to him after what we just saw there?

AJ: I know...I know what it looks like and I know how he can come off sometimes. But Daniel is, deep down, a good person.

Piper: A good person? Aw, little lady...little lady, this is Piper's Pit, where you leave the politically correct answers at the door, ok? Good person? We're talking about a guy that...in front of the entire WWE Universe dumped you. We're talking about a guy that says that you're dead weight. We're talking about a guy, and this must have taken a big man, to say that your kiss is the...little lady, the kiss of death, and you're calling him a nice guy? Come on.

AJ: No...it's my fault. I made a mistake at Wrestlemania. And I'm so, so sorry! But I know that if...if we could just talk...we could work it out. I know I can make it up to you.

Piper: Little lady, make it up to him? Listen, I think...I think this. I have been watching you since your debut. I saw when The Big Show just mowed you down. And you know what you did? You finally got back up, so you're strong. And it's not easy, folks, to be a lady and be here, so you're smart. And you know something else? You're beautiful. And...you don't need to make nothing up to Mr. Daniel. Let me tell you a secret. All's he's doing, honey, is using you...

Bryan: I've had enough! Enough! I have had enough of you dragging my name through the dirt. And I have had enough of you airing your dirty laundry. AJ, if you meant it when you said that you loved me, you would leave this ring right now!

Piper: Hey, AJ! AJ! Whoawhoawhoa, you don't need to listen to him at all. You don't, little lady.

Bryan: AJ!

Piper: AJ?

Crowd starts up an AJ chant. AJ simply turns and walks away. Bryan smugly starts laughing and tries to leave.

Piper: I'm not finished with you! I see YES! YES! YES! on your T-shirt. *I*, because of this fine, fine universe, the WWE, have four children, three of them which are girls...ladies. You got YES! YES!, let me tell you some NO's! You don't tell a lady to shut up! That's a No! You don't yell at a lady! That's a No! And you don't use a lady as a human shield to protect yourself, because that's a coward! And that's you! And that also is a No! Now the only bright light I see is the fact that at Extreme Rules, Sheamus, the Heavyweight Champion of the World, because of you, has a 2 out of 3 fall match, but the bright side is for me is that I'm gonna get to Sheamus and watch him, and I'm gonna get to see him kick your head off your shoulders, not once, but twice.

Bryan: At Extreme Rules, the fact that I'm better than Sheamus is going to slap him and everybody else, including you, across the face.

Bryan slaps Piper across the face and runs away! Hit Bryan's music! Bryan leaves yelling out YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

Later tonight, Sheamus and Mean Gene Okerlund face Alberto Del Rio and Daniel Bryan.

Ad break

THE GREAT KHALI, ALICIA FOX & NATALYA v. DREW McINTYRE & THE BELLA TWINS
NOBODY gets entrances, because nobody in this match matters! Khali chops McIntyre, so he tags out and takes a walk. Thanks for showing up, Drew! So Alicia Fox hits a Northern Lights and...yup.

WINNERS: The Great Khali, Alicia Fox & Natalya - What was the point of this, other than to start showing The Bellas the door?

Post-match, MAE YOUNG comes out to dance with the faces. Mae Young kisses Khali, just because. She looks A LOT more frail than she did the last time we saw her, so hearing Cole make fun of her is bordering on uncomfortable.

Later tonight, our main event tag team match.

Ad break

Let's hear from Damien Sandow again.

"Sophistication! Webster's dictionary defines sophistication as the process or result in becoming knowledgeable, cultured, or disillusioned. Fortunately for you, I embody all of these qualities. Sadly, in these fast-moving times, sophistication has become both a lost art and collateral damage. Take, for example, the realm of social media. You are constantly bombarded by a neverending attack of Tweets and posts. These serve not only to propagate your consciences, but further feed your moral decay and ethical inadequacies. No longer are your minds captured by the soft subtlety of a novel, or the philosophical ideologies therein. Instead, you choose to govern your lives by mantras expressed in 140 characters or less. But fear not. For it is not only my duty, but my destiny, to be your beacon of light and your harbor of iniquity. A light that will shine true and steadfast and you can govern your life by for years and years to come. You're welcome."

Your hosts are the three ninnies. Cole makes fun of Booker for using a notepad. We look back at what happened earlier with Kane and Orton. Matthews notes that "Cowboy" Bob must have been hit in the stomach. Man, they totally missed the boat by not having Kane break his arm to put him back in the cast!

Raw Rebound wastes even more time. I am rapidly losing patience with this show.

Backstage, Mean Gene tells Sheamus that he doesn't like their odds tonight, but surmises that Sheamus has something planned. Sheamus frankly tells Gene that they probably aren't winning, but won't give Laurinaitis the satisfaction of seeing him sweat. Sheamus promises Gene some drinks after tonight...if they survive.

Ad break

"HACKSAW" JIM DUGGAN v. HUNICO (w/CAMACHO)
Holy shit, Hunico still works here! Hunico grabs the mic and derides the Blast From the Past concept, calling himself the future.

Duggan hammers away on Hunico to send him to the outside. Duggan tries to give chase, but is stopped by Camacho. So Duggan waves out some backup. Here's SGT. SLAUGHTER to scare Camacho off, I guess. Slaughter tosses the 2x4 to Duggan, who nails Hunico with it and...that'll do it!

WINNER BY DQ: Hunico - Sigh...see you in another two months, Hunico!

Post-match, Duggan bops Hunico some more. Slaughter grabs the Cobra Clutch. Hit Duggan's music! Cole buries the segment again. Why would they even market Blast From the Past at all, if they're just going to have Cole shit on everyone involved? And why are they RUSHING through all of these segments? What is happening here?

And now they replay the end of the last Sheamus backstage segment! AUGH! Later tonight, the main event! If that means this show's about to end, bring it on!

Ad break

Here's CODY RHODES, who's already halfway through his entrance. Again, they're just rushing through! Rhodes grabs the mic, so I guess it's time for MORE TALKING!

Cody: What are we calling this night, a Blast From the Past. And what a blast it's been. I think it is a waste of our collective time. Why not turn our attentions to the future. A future where I am once again the Intercontinental Champion. A future where The Big Show doesn't get to bask in the glow of a single lucky punch. A future where these so-called legends don't hog the spotlight from those of us who actually CAN...

Interruption comes from "THE AMERICAN DREAM" DUSTY RHODES. He takes his time in coming down. Doesn't he know that this show's in a HURRY?

Cody: I'm sorry, Dad, this...doesn't concern you in the least.

Dusty: Actually, it does concern me! You know, I...love you and there's nothing I wouldn't do for you. But you know, you came into this industry as the most naturally talented athlete to step into that WWE ring since Shawn Michaels. And what did you want to do? What did you want to do? You wanted to poke the bear. You wanted to poke a grizzly bear, Big Show...

Cody: DAD! Dad! Hold on! You are embarrassing me. You and me, we can talk about this in the back.

Cody tries to leave, but here's THE BIG SHOW with his own mic. I guess he's here for rebuttal.

Show: "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, baby! Coupon-clipping, Copenhagen-dipping, son of a plumber, if you will, daddeh! Cody, that's The American Dream! I know you've had a lot of embarrassing moments lately, I know I keep showing the clips of me knocking you out at Wrestlemania. But you know what, but tonight I'm not gonna show anything like that. Tonight, I'm gonna show the real Cody Rhodes. If you will, please.

So we take a look at one of Cody's old Dashing promos! HA!

Show: Now that, Cody Rhodes, that right there, playa, that's embarrassin'.

Show leaves and...everyone just kinda stands around. Um...cue? Somebody? Ok, somebody finally hits Dusty's music! Dusty dances! CAN WE PLEASE GO TO BREAK???

Sheamus and Mean Gene Okerlund walk through the backstage area. The main event is next!

Ad break - WWE YouTube promo

Here's another Dream Machines promo, featuring John Cena! The In-CENA-rator? I GET IT!

So DANIEL BRYAN doesn't get an entrance. Of course he doesn't. Why would he? LILIAN GARCIA passes off to RICARDO RODRIGUEZ for Del Rio's entrance. Lilian then passes off to HOWARD FINKEL for the faces' intros. Cole makes fun of Finkel, because he's a repulsive asshole.

DANIEL BRYAN & ALBERTO DEL RIO v. SHEAMUS & MEAN GENE OKERLUND
We have less than ten minutes of show left, so this shouldn't last long. Sheamus hits a back elbow on Del Rio and tries to chase Bryan. That allows Del Rio to kick Sheamus and tag out. Bryan kicks Sheamus to light "YES!" chants from the crowd. Bryan tags out and Del Rio stomps away. Sheamus backdrops Del Rio and Bryan tags in to stomp away some more. Sheamus nails an Irish Hammer and dumps Del Rio. Brogue Kick on Bryan misses and Sheamus is dropkicked to the outside, where Del Rio meets him with a fútbol kick. Del Rio shoves Okerlund in and the heels all surround him. Even Ricardo's getting in on this! Okerlund begs for his life until Roddy Piper's music hits! The legends all come out from the back! Cole buries the whole thing. I'm BEGGING for him to shut the fuck up! Bryan mouths off to Piper, but turns around and eats the Brogue Kick for the pin in about 3 minutes.

WINNERS: Sheamus & Mean Gene Okerlund - Is this show over yet?

Post-match, the legends all take turns teeing off on poor Ricardo! It all culminates with Sheamus wiping him out with the Brogue Kick. Hit Sheamus' music!

But just to make the show THAT MUCH BETTER, Cole grabs the mic and gets in the ring. He makes fun of the legends, so Patterson decks him to ZERO reaction! I hope that tells someone once and for all that NOBODY GIVES A SHIT ABOUT MICHAEL COLE!!! Credits are up! Thank God!

FINAL THOUGHT

I've got their Blast From the Past in the seat of my pants! The legends barely got any screen time, aside from Piper and Okerlund and the ending. Nearly all of the segments felt rushed tonight! And on top of that, they marketed Blast From the Past and when they delivered it, they just had Cole bury the whole concept! It doesn't make any sense! This ended up being just another average show filled with bad matches, convoluted nonsense, and people that I don't want to see on my TV.

In short, this show needed more Daniel Bryan.

Until next week!

Permanent probation and a $500,000 fine for Sheamus if he even accidentally touches a referee again. I think David Otunga is in Russia, but I presume the legal forms for this are all official.

The living, breathing example of The Law of Diminishing Returns: Every Mick Foley appearance since 2006.

I thought Pat Patterson was going to kiss Cole instead of punch him.

Any of tonight's show make you want to watch Legends House if the WWE Network ever launches.

I think he actually WAS fined, and he'll be FIRED if he touches The Official. By the way, they said "Chad Patton" and "Charles Robinson" MULTIPLE times tonight - are they relaxing that inane moratorium on dropping their names? (Well, they still haven't said "Rod Zapata" or "Justin King" - or even "Black Ref")

Tepid crowd, and really wasn't a fan of Cole tonight. He's very hit or miss these days, and tonight he was a miss.

Until we come up with a better name for it, this will suffice. But man, I thought the poor kid was DEAD. It reminds me a bit of how Goldberg would murder someone with a spear, and I'd think "do you *really* need to do a Jackhammer?"

Wait, did Booker say Cole was older than him? I was ready to believe him, but Wiki says Cole is four years younger than Book.

I know Piper's style is sort of ramble-y, but it could have been interpreted that he was saying he impregnated members of the WWE Universe, leading to his four children.

Heath Slater is really ramping up his obnoxiousness. That whole tag segment was just people talking on top of people talking on top of megaphones talking on top of talking about the chapter in Mick's last book about Vince being awful to announcers.

So AJ *is* eventually going to stand up for herself and the crowd will be on her side, right??

Yes, but this is going to be a very slow burn. In a lot of cases, a woman sticks by her man no matter how much of a jerk he is to her, so it's not unsurprising to see AJ demean herself to stay with Bryan. I wouldn't be surprised if she costs Sheamus the title at the PPV to get back in Bryan's good graces.

This isn't a case like Zack Ryder. When Ryder reduces himself to a jumbled mess, it makes him look idiotic. He comes off as such a self-confident guy that lowering himself to moronic behavior for Eve seems out-of-character. With AJ, you can see the low self-esteem in her, so I'd buy that she'll stay with Bryan for now.

    Because at Extreme Rules, we're gonna have a 2 out of 3 falls match!


Yay, they're going to have Bryan lose in straight falls. That'll be a thrill. (These are the things I say to myself to prevent myself from going to this...)

I am honestly confused though - wasn't the deal last week that ADR got a title shot if he beat Sheamus, and he (more or less) beat Sheamus last week? Was that just not necessarily for this upcoming show?

OR all three falls end in 18 seconds. (Brogue kick -> pin, Sheamus uses a chair and gets disqualified, then immediately pins DB.)

As a follow-up to the Foley segment, Owen Hart started trending on Twitter afterwards, in the one instance that the jackals at The E WON'T bring up trending topics.

Mick even got a thanks from Bret and Natalya:

@BretHart:
Thanks @realMickFoley for thinking of Owen. #enoughisenoughanditstime4achange

I think now that we are back to kiddie crowds, you are going to see a lot less of the Yes chants and more of the What chants as well as being boring as hell. The Daniel Bryan chants were almost non-existent. It wasn't a terrible Smackdown, it was a just there Smackdown. I thought Foley and Dean Ambrose would have some sorta of confrontation and they would pimp Legend's House if Syfy did get it for the summer. Piper's Pit was just ok, Piper is better at the veteran giving sage advice than being an abused women's counselor. It wasn't a bad Piper's Pit, but it wasn't that good either.

Unless they are going to out Johnny in a few months due to him making enemies with everyone, I don't see the point in this guy. He trips over his own lines which has stopped being funny and generates X-Poc heat. There was no need to add the Sheamus could get fired storyline since no one buys it anymore. Austin burst that bubble, a long time ago and Cena flushed it down the toilet in the last few years.

Ryback looks good. I still have no idea what he is doing with his arms after his win. The wife thought he was channeling his inner Bushwacker. I did love the Legends calling it a squash match. Kane/Orton, yep it was there. And thats about all you can say about it. On the plus side, I like Smackdown on Tuesday. There is nothing on TV that I watch and it sorta flows with Raw on Monday. I doubt they will keep that way, but who knows. Also, Cole needs to learn to shut up or Vince needs to learn that one of the reasons, his stock hit a 52 week low may have something to do with your own people burying part of your product. A very important part of your product, your wrestlers.

I was actually thinking about this, and I think it would actually wind up being way more satisfying and much better for her character if it eventually turns out that AJ was in on everything the whole time, and this was all just an elaborate ruse to help DBry. A heel turn would make her an active participant in all of this, while a face turn would just kind of make her look weak for a long time while making the payoff increasingly less believable or satisfying. Plus, I think it would get her more heat.


Other than that, all I have to say about last night's show is that Cody Rhodes is a treasure.

They sure are. It might be AJ's fault though. It's also going to be something of an away game atmosphere for Sheamus, King. (Bryan and Punk both lose in Chicago? We'll always have July.)


    I am honestly confused though - wasn't the deal last week that ADR got a title shot if he beat Sheamus, and he (more or less) beat Sheamus last week? Was that just not necessarily for this upcBut just to make the show THAT MUCH BETTER, Cole grabs the mic and gets in the ring. Homing show?


That's the real money feud they're saving for once they get this pesky stuff out the way.

This was a case of having so much quality well-thought out show that they couldn't even stretch it to the hour, so they sent Cole in on the fly to do anything rather than linger on the "Written In My Face" party feat. Sheamus & his dad's mates for 3 more minutes.


    What was the point of this, other than to start showing The Bellas the door?


I think I heard something from Josh about Drew being a ladies' man all of a sudden ("I hef feelings for ye, KALLY KALLY"). Drew told the B's to call him after the match but he had to go. They should have a real prosperous relationship.

    Holy shit, Hunico still works here! Hunico grabs the mic and derides the Blast From the Past concept, calling himself the future.

    Duggan hammers away on Hunico to send him to the outside. Duggan tries to give chase, but is stopped by Camacho. So Duggan waves out some backup. Here's SGT. SLAUGHTER to scare Camacho off, I guess. Slaughter tosses the 2x4 to Duggan, who nails Hunico with it and...that'll do it!

    WINNER BY DQ: Hunico - Sigh...see you in another two months, Hunico!

    Post-match, Duggan bops Hunico some more. Slaughter grabs the Cobra Clutch. Hit Duggan's music! (edited by It's False on 10.4.12 2234)



You missed the call by booker after Sarge threw Duggan the 2x4: "Watch Saw Jack here!" For some reason, I loved that.

    I think he actually WAS fined, and he'll be FIRED if he touches The Official.


You're right. Sheamus' wallet just got a whole lot lighter. (wwe.com)

AJ should stand up for herself, then drop down and plead for Daniel's forgiveness and promise to change her clingy selfishness until Daniel decides to take another chance on her. With Daniel, she was in love, involved in main event matches with the former World Champion, and was on the fast track to becoming Divas Champion herself. Without Daniel, she'll be slumming it with Hornswoggle again on NXT. AJ's a smart girl, she knows where her bread is buttered. The first step was admitting her mistake and taking responsibility for costing Daniel the World Championship, no thanks to the meddling and muck raking of Roddy Piper. I think there's a pretty good chance Daniel will take her back. Deep down, he's a good person.

Bryan loses to Sheamus, takes Santino's belt (American Dragon as US champ), gets in AJ's face about winning without her, retreats from a protective Zack Ryder (former US champ), setting up their title angle. Zack and AJ rebound with each other.

Piper can swing from incomprehensible to master storyteller, and we got the latter last night. Piper was PERFECT. If he can do this consistently, he'd be indispensable for go-home shows.

Loved loved loved Mick's Owen quote. Slater's kinda growing on me. Wish he brought more to the ring. The Usos could be overly over as kid-friendly tag champs.

Ryback does nothing for me.

This thing just kills my suspension of disbelief. What do you guys think Sheamus makes in a year? I'm sure this is WWE wanting to seem real like football or something, but I can't imagine the majority of them get paid like even minimum wage NFL players do.

There downside guarantee is probably nowhere near the NFL minimum wage, but Sheamus' merchandise sales are pretty healthy and he's been positioned in the Main Event for a couple of years now.

It's not *that* hard to believe he's got money like that laying around.

Dude, this is historic. It's major. This is the most fake money a wrestler has ever paid to his fake evil boss in the history of WWE. It's going down in the record books, like the number of 93,173 as the attendance for WrestleMania III.

Hornswoggle can bring him a pot of gold. Problem solved.
