Saddam is gone! Hooray! It's time for The Great Thomas SmackDown! Report!

Brock Lesnar: He autographs some chick's boob. Seriously.

Lesnar vs. Hardy V.1: Tazz calls Brock "subhuman." Lesnar no-sells the belt shot. Hardy DOES sell Brock's Electric Chair Drop. Very well, I might add! Lesnar wins via F-5.

Classic Piper: He reminisces how he interviewed, then beat up some guy named Frankie Williams.

Sable: She comes down the ramp and... let's go to comercial break!

Torrie/Kendrick vs. Nidia/Noble: Sable reads Torrie's Playboy at ringside. I really like Kendrick's entrance music. Torrie wins. Torrie always wins.

Semifinal: Benoit vs. Rhyno: Wrestling galore! Benoit hits the FLYING HEADBUTT! Benoit wins via Backslide Pin.

Sable: She and Torrie have shower related hijinks. No, wait...

Mr. McMahon: While the Piper's Pit is being set up, he comes down the ramp, and... let's go to commercial break!

Iverson: I love this Reebok commercial!

Classic Piper: He clobbers Jimmy Snuka with the coconut.

Mr. McMahon (cont.): McMahon said he injected Hulkamania with leprosy, then introduces Piper. Then McMahon introduces himself as the special guest.

Piper's Pit: McMahon taunts Piper, then Piper taunts McMahon... shooting galore! They hate Hogan, so they shake hands. Then, Rikishi comes out with... THE COCONUT! He says he remembers what Piper did to Snuka, but SEAN O'HAIRE attacks Rikishi from behind! After some vicious chairshots, Piper takes THE COCONUT to Rikishi's head!

Les Nouvelles Mondiales: Sylvan Grenier & Renee Dupree: If BrewGuy likes 'em. I'll give them a chance.

Team Angle vs. Tajiri/Mysterio: Team Angle seems to have decent enough mic skills... Mysterio wins via Springboard Legdrop.

Jones vs. E. Rection: Short match. Nathan Jones wins via Big Boot. PFFFFT!

F.B.I: OMG! Someone took their money!

Jones et Taker: The cops from the last segment take Nathan down to the station. Taker is bummed.

Semifinals: Cena vs. Undertaker: Taker gets to squashin'. Let's go to commercial break!

Semifinals: Cena vs. Undertaker (cont.): Cena targets Taker's injured elbow. The F.B.I. tries to interfere, and does a beatdown on Taker, then TWO chairshots! Cena pins! 1-2-3! It's Benoit vs. Cena in the finals next week! Word Life!

That's all for this week. until then, Good Night, take care of yourselves, and we'll see what happens in the Finals next week!

...and a Fashion Report, too.

Brocky, in black undies, wearing the belt, vs. Mattitude, in black "V1" tshirt and funny pants, carrying the belt by one stap, with Shannon. Matt nearly dies, many times. Good match.

Tazz, in black suit and yellow tie, and Cole, in white polo, commentate.

Sable, in black/gold bust-showing-off body suit, reads at ringside (see kids, reading is FUN!).

Torrie (always wins), in pink bra, tight undies, and leg wraps (with clear garters) and Kendrick, in black/green full-cuts and boots, vs. Noble, in cutoffs (with the Brooklyn Brawler-style back pocket) and Nidia, in white "S" shirt and Daisy Dukes. Man, even Torrie's CLAPPING sucks. Half the match was good, half bad. You guess. Sable is just disturbing.

Three grown men in a locker room. Why doesn't Brock have is own?

Benwa, in black "Toothless Aggression" tshirt and red trunks, vs. Rhyno, in black "Rhyno" singlet. Good match. The commentary was outstanding.

Wait - Torrie gets her own locker room, but the CHAMP has to share? WTF!?

Vince, in dark grey suit and pink shirt (open) talks. Um, a DOSE of leprosy? Now Piper, in leather jacket, kilt, and "FRATS!" tshirt, is out. Don't taunt the host, 'cuz the host taunts back. Now Rikishi, in burgundy "Rikishi Wear" is out, with a coconut. Now Sean, in black undies is out, swinging a mean chair. Um, this segment went a bit long.

The Frenchies get their own news desk? And the CHAMP doesn't even get one? C'mon!

Team Angle, in blue warmups, grey "Team Angle" tshirts, wearing the belts (and singlets underneath it all), have the stick! vs. Tajiri, in black pants with white dragons, and Rey, in black/red mask and red "619" black pants. Nice match.

Nathan Jones (in a match?), in black red-striped undies, vs. Hugh, in black green-splatted singlet. Poor match - nor really much to it. Jones' face just looks like an animate skull.

Cena, in an "Expos" jersey and jean shorts, with lock and chain, vs. Taker, in black singlet and leather pants. A nice brawl, but a poor match (too slow for too long). Taker's elbow must've been really hurting.

Overall: Except for the over-long McMahon/Piper/Rikishi/Sean segment (which was still good at times) the show was something I liked. Oh, and the Torrie stuff is old and boring.

Okay so tell me, after RIKISHI single-handedly beat the F.B.I. why is it that anyone is expected to believe that they pose any real threat to the Undertaker? This speaks a lot for the bookers planning because if they had this booked in anyway shape or form in advance, the FBI would have destroyed Kish, instead of being his bitch.

What makes matters worse is that, after getting destroyed by Taker, my new hero John Cena picks up the cheap victory which really only worked to escalate the above mentioned pointless fued.

Oh, my head.

I hate it when Scott Keith's right. Doesn't ANYBODY in WWE read his stuff? This was exactly what he said would happen! Now not only will Keith be patting himself on the back, but how the hell are fans supposed to:

a) take John Cena seriously?
b) accept the FBI as SERIOUS threats to Undertaker?
c) actually believe that Nathan Jones could have saved UT?

I want to see Brock/Cena happen as much as anybody, but fans probably won't take the match seriously, which means Backlash would have to be sold based on the Rocky/Goldberg match...which is not cool.

I have come to a decision. I hate Torrie.

Yes, she's hot. I know that. But she sucks at wrestling. And that wouldn't be so bad if we were shown that people who suck at wrestling lose. But instead, she wins. EVERY TIME. I have gotten so sick and tired of seeing Jamie Noble have to cheat to try to help Nidia out, and then Torrie still wins. I will not be happy until she A) loses more often or B) does non-wrestling stuff.

For those who did not watch "Velocity" this week, here's a Mattitude Media Player factoid you missed..."Matt sleeps in the nude." No, I don't remember the other one.

Some good matches tonight. Those watching with me thought Noble and Kendrick tore it up but the girls were horrible. I didn't mind the girls. I agree that Noble and Kendrick tore it up. Kendrick's entrance was a hoot. Sable still looks to me like she could be Torrie's mom.

Benoit/Rhyno was good. What else would one expect.

I still don't get bringing Piper back, but the Pit segment was better than I expected it to be...albeit awfully long...

The Nathan Jones match: Literally everybody in the room looked up and said..."Huh? He won?" I don't think we weren't paying attention...it just seemed like they slipped that one under us.

Is it really time for Brock/Cena? I don't know about that. I know Cena's been cutting promos on the guy left and right for over a month, but...I don't know that I see Cena as believeable enough to carry that role on a PPV yet.

You get the impression Backlash will be a RAW-heavy card? Aside from the tournament to see who faces Brock and the imminent Taker/Jones-FBI feud, I don't see a lot of PPV match-building going on here.

Smackdown recap coming up. First of all, Great Thomas, I love yer recaps. They're solid. Now I will follow up with one of my own. I would have put this in the Guest Columns folder, 'cept nobody goes there anyway. Actually, it is in that folder. I am grateful for the contributor status. So Monday’s RAW rundown and tonight’s rundown of Smackdown will be combined into one giant recap-i-faction, and I shall call it "The Cynical Wrestling Weekly Recap.” Bah-ha!

Smackdown April, 10, 2003.

Brock Lesnar comes in to open the festivities. Everyone is real thrilled to meet Brock Lesnar. You know ‘cuz the inflexible narrative of WWE storytelling tells you so. Look, those paid actors are excited to see Brock- that means he is a very good and fun superstar who is worthy of having his title. Next week, watch as he rides a bus around the continental United States. A tit is signed, but Brock, being the big 290 pound pussy he is, signs her shirt boobie instead of her flesh boobie. You always sign the flesh boobie. It was right there! Come on, Brock!

Then Brock Lesnar meets Matthew Hardy, version1.0! This match had some solid stuff. First thing I noticed was the sheer joy on Lesnar’s face as he gorilla hopped down the aisle. He really seems to be loving what he’s doing. Brock kicks Hardy’s belt aside because you see it’s for small guys and small guys are completely inferior to big guys. The match is good. It’s not a squash, which is the most you can hope for. Hardy works the neck and does it well. Shannon more takes more bumps in a managerial role outside than Nathan Jones has taken so far in his matches. Michael Cole gets across that Matt is a fool for wanting to face the Champion. Because the Champion’s real real big. And you just don’t monkey with real real big. Ugh. And this is the good announce team. Matt’s Twist of Fate is turned into an F-5 and a nice win for Brock.

Rating relative to sex: This match was like a nice doggy-style bang when you’re 16 years old. It didn’t last very long, one person took a hell of a pounding and just lay there when it was over.

Then Vince sent Hogan home while still paying him. Odd that they think this will lead to sympathy. And I don’t see why it should bother Hogan, either. This is the same contract he had with WCW while he was their world champion.

Then Sable came out. She’s French. The name should be pronounced Saab-la. I don’t care what you “I’d-rather-have-Ivory-‘cuz-she-looks-like-my-Aunt-Ruth-and-I’m –into-that” freaks say. Sable is a pretty lady with a nice smile. Is she older? Yeah. Pick up a biology textbook retards, it happens to everybody. She needs a tan, tho. And my genitals in her mouth. Er…Uh…


Then We were faced with Torrie teaming with Brain Kendrick to meet the formidable team of Jamie Noble and Nidia. Nidia looked nice. If she’s getting the Angle-Beef, I’ll pass, though. Noble proved in this match he’s still one of the more reliable and worthwhile hands on the show. He sells great. He just don’t win much. The match ends with trained wrestler Nidia jobbing to the prom queen. I’d say this match made me want to puke, but given Torrie’s past I’ll forgo the analogy. Note…Torrie dressed like a big whore. And Sable applauded her. For some reason this made me long for Marty Jannetty.

Rating relative to sex: This was basically beating off. It was necessary, it had to be gotten out of the way eventually, and it could have been done at any time.

Then there was a bad actor’s seminar backstage. Benoit acted badly as he congratulated Brock. In a…”That’s strange” moment, the 5’9” Benoit looked no more than an inch and half to two inches shorter than the supposedly 6’4” Lesnar. I bet all that 6’4” stuff is just a big fat lie. Then Rhyno came in and acted badly, allowing the bad actors to continuing acting badly. Then Brock acted smarmy. He did so badly. They finished it off by promoting Backlash under their breath. This was worse than the acting in Crossroads. With all the one-dimensionality going on I thought my TV was going to explode and be replaced with an Atari.

Then Rhyno and Crisp Benoit came in. I call him Crisp Benoit, because everything he does is Crrrispy Crisp. It was fun abound. Started out slow, everything made sense, and Rhyno almost headbutt the second turnbuckle off a gore attempt which probably would have killed him. Good match, Benoit nailed the headbutt which is still the most illogical move on this show and never makes any sense to me, but it looks real cool. Benoit won with a backslide, and that’s what they need to do. End matches on moves no one would expect them to end on. After the match Rhyno and Benoit shake hands. It’s just like the Mega-Powers. Except without anyone caring.

Then Sable stole Torrie’s towel and held it for her, forcing the former nWo
play-thing to walk over to her. Miles away from this little scene, a million little hogan’smydads flood my underpants in a tumultuous eruption. But I’m sure that would have happened anyway.

Then we saw the Piper’s pit moment where he hit that murderous crackhead Jimmy Snuka with a coconut. Why can’t Snuka and Austin form a tag-team where they go around preventing domestic abuse, and call themselves Irony Incorporated. Oh and by the way, we’ve seen this enough. I get it, he hit him with coconut. Can we move on, please?

Then the rolled out the carpet. And guess who came to dinner. Vince. And he eventually, after some commercials said some really stupid stuff about Hulkamania. The latest stupid thing Vince said was that he “injected Hulkamania with a lethal dose of leprosy”. Yeah, that makes sense. Idiot. Well if anyone would know when that became injectable, Vince would. Anyway, he then claimed Piper was one of his creations. Piper came out and acted like Piper. Vince insulted him for a bit, made fun of his gut “piper’s pit or piper’s paunch”. Then Piper pointed out that Vince failed at everything he ever did except wrestling, ironic considering his film career. Piper cites Vince’s failed rock promoter stint before getting into wrestling full-tilt, which only 7 people know about including Vince himself and Meltzer. He brings up the WBF, which I liked, but once again the fans were not aware of what the hell that was a reference to. Finally he brought up the XFL. The fans didn’t jump on it. They both agreed they hate Hogan. Piper tried hard get the audience to boo him, despite the fact they clearly didn’t want to. Eventually he tells Vince that he lost to Hogan at Wrestlemania and Piper never did. Yeah, so I guess losing a tag-match only counts when you get pinned. Or so it is in the wasteland that is Piper’s mind. Then Rikishi comes out for coconut revenge. Honestly, the Gottis don’t hold grudges like this. Then the devil came out, I mean Sean O’Haire, and he and Piper beat up a fat man, related to a murderous crackhead and seeking revenge for that murderous crackhead, who rubs his bare ass in other men’s faces against their will. The most morally ambiguous segment in wrestling history.

Then the French are still attacking. These guys are so cool. They’ll be heel as long as it takes the ladies to cream their thongs about them, which won’t take long, if I know ladies.

Then Team Uncle (‘cuz they make ya say Uncle, see?) were blessed by the “mic time” fairy. It isn’t pretty. After that they battle Teej and Rey. It is a fast, exciting match that lets both teams incoproarate their styles into the flow without clashing horribly. Rey wins it with a big springboard legdrop.

Rating relative to sex: Sort of like doing your girlfriend after being in prison for a real long time. It wasn’t like you weren’t getting any action before, but that action was dirty, and this was so much better.

Then Josh Matthews continued to come off like a guy who would easily be raped by the Undertaker, and might even welcome the idea. ‘Taker demands respect. He don’t mind getting beat up, but backstage he should be respected. He thinks he’s earned it. Yeah, for a guy handed a gimmick that couldn’t possibly fail, he did all right. Cena apparently made some comments I missed last week. ‘Taker swears a beat up, a shut up, and a bust up. If I were a porn director I might know what all that meant.

Then Nathan Jones beat Bill De Mott. At this point, I reverently remembered that I left my VCR running all morning and it taped four episodes of Dawson’s Creek off TBS. I decided to watch the trials and tribulations of the Capeside Kids for a couple minutes instead of watching this match. I did come back into to see bad selling and the ending. Which was a crappy kick. A kick that made Test sit back and think, “well, my job’s amazing” and then, patting Stacy on the back of the head, think “and I’ll be employed for a while too”…

Rating relative to sex: Like being raped by Priest. Wrong. Just…Wrong.

Then somewhere in the mid-west, Honky Tonk Man cursed Jeff Jarrett’s name. That has nothing to do with anything but it’s probably true. And not only that, the FBI (Full Blooded Italians, that is) filed a complaint about things being stolen from them. The Chicago police don’t wonder for a second why anyone would have 1200 dollars in cash in their duffle bag, but we’re in Chicago so it makes sense.

Then Nathan Jones was arrested. ‘Taker bitched about discrimination, like a democrat. I’m not complaining, I just never thought I’d see that. Jeez, ‘Taker, imagine if he was a Muslim. Jones was arrested.

Then John Cena rapped his way to the ring in a Montreal Expos jersey. Uh…Yeah. He did a very slow rap with tons of pauses in it but I guess he has to given the circumstances. The rap concludes with him saying that while Undertaker’s a dead man, he’s a necrophiliac. I love this guy. He’s quickly becoming one of my favourites on the whole roster, not just SD’s. Taker comes out and they do a one-sided assbeat until Cena chains ‘Takes. There’s a commercial in there somewhere. Then Cena works on the elbow, which I do believe is legitimately injured. Taker last rides Cena but the ref is down and can’t register the count. Then the FBI make a run-in and get beat down individually, until Billy Gunn’s ex-fiancé got ‘Taker with a chair. Then those dirty Eye-Talians swarmed the Undertaker who I think is Irish, and left him laying. Cena covered him and stole the win. Not that Cena should have bitch-i-fied ‘Takes, but he could have done a little better than this. Takes shoulda kicked out of this, and then went down to Cena’s sit-out DVD. Bah.

Rating relative to sex: Like sex with your girlfriend for the 300th time. No surprises, but not exactly boring. Although I guess that would depend on your girlfriend.

That’s all this week…Later…This is Hogan’s My Dad signing off.

1. Women like the Brock.

2. Benoit was nice.

3. Nathan Jones looks like Sagat.

4. Bless the return of Piper's Pit; that was damn entertaining.

5. Taker sold the entire match, albeit badly. Cut him some slack.

I remember what I forgot to say earlier. I really liked the Tajiri/Mysterio matchup. I've always liked Tajiri, and Mysterio is one of the most exciting wrestlers around. I liked the Tarantula/Drop Kick, I liked Tajiri setting his opponent up for the 6-1-9, I thought they just really worked together. Heck, I wouldn't mind seeing them as Tag Team champions for a while, though I know that won't happen.

This match has had more buildup than any other title match, except for Brock/Angle. The first Brock/Cena match, Cena's knee injury angle, followed by Cena's "I want revenge" motif make this match very interesting and has made the feud compelling.

Now if Cena had mowed down everything in his way out of his thirst for revenge, this match would have been all kinds of kick-ass! Thanks a bunch, Mr. Calloway, for making Cena look like a total wuss.

Benoit-Rhyno was good.

I also liked Hardy-Lesnar.

I have a feeling it will be Lesnar-Cena.

O'Hare affilated with Piper could be interesting if done right.

Overall, a decent Smackdown, I guess.

True, he does have a pair of "Toothless Aggression" trunks. But his trunks this week didn't have that written on the legs (there was writing on the backside). ALthough I'm not gonna stare at a guy's butt and try to read it. So let's just guess and say it was "Crippler", okay?

Okay, Roddy, let me see if I got this straight. Vince McMahon has failed miserably at everything he's ever tried to do except the job he got because of his father's name? Jeebus, with credentials like that, he could be President.

Call me a cynical smark, but I just can't get excited for this match. Neither of these guys were in the company a year ago, now they're fighting for the title in a PPV? Now, Brock, okay, they've given him the big push, he's now a main-eventer whether we like it or not. But Cena? A "rapper" who's only discernable characteristic is his horrible delivery? Really? Do they think they're gonna sell a lot of tickets because of this match? And as you said, he hasn't even been made to look strong. Not to mention that Brock kicked the shit out of him during their Smackdown match.

Maybe I just don't understand the logic, but I can think of 10 guys that would draw better with Brock than Cena.

I've discovered one of the cardinal principles of the WWE. If you want to be pushed as a powerful strongman-type wrestler, You HAVE to lift Rikishi over your head. Brock Lesnar did it at the start of his career, and so did John Cena when he gave Rikishi the DVD.

      Call me a cynical smark, but I just can't get excited for this match. Neither of these guys were in the company a year ago, now they're fighting for the title in a PPV? Now, Brock, okay, they've given him the big push, he's now a main-eventer whether we like it or not. But Cena? A "rapper" who's only discernable characteristic is his horrible delivery? Really? Do they think they're gonna sell a lot of tickets because of this match? And as you said, he hasn't even been made to look strong. Not to mention that Brock kicked the shit out of him during their Smackdown match.

      Maybe I just don't understand the logic, but I can think of 10 guys that would draw better with Brock than Cena.



    I think that the logic is that people are going to but the ppv based on the Goldberg/Rock fight and would do so regardless of what the SD main event was.

    Realistically, your alternatives are Brock/Taker(done before), Brock/Benoit(Benoit's never been a massive draw), and Brock/Rhyno(way too early).

    Given that why not give Cena a chance to run with the ball at a ppv where the buyrates are hopefully gonna be decent based on the RAW ME? If he looks great we've got a new star. If it comes off bad then judging by the reactions the crowd have been giving Goldberg his return will be enough to keep most folks happy.

I thought D-Von was supposed to defend the TV Title on every show? Bitch and moan about the terrible acting and what not, but the way I see it, if it puts a major focus on AL, Daniels, and Kaz... it's okay in my book.
