I'm actually looking forward to all four of those matches.

 

Ditto looks like a good way to introduce Smackdown to a new network. Also it should be interesting to see the women's match as well.

Interesting idea to have all the champs wrestle eachother (as opposed to Night of Champions PPV when they defend the belts against others) I am quite looking forwards to the show this Friday now I have read this

When I heard about the World Titles match and the US/IC match, I was really hoping for a Womens match, so I'm glad thats on. The show does look good so far.

I am, as of this moment, completely naked.

 

Thats all.

 

ANYWAY, welcome, ladies and gents, to the huge-ass debut of Smackdown on the new network. We have a COMPLETELY NEW INTRO! Wow, didnt see that coming. My first impression is that it sucks. Really boring song, and the graphics are too slow. -1, Smackdown, -1. We have graphics of practically every wrestler in the company, as we're all appearing tonight. We show the World Championships match.

 

We open in the best possible way, with Jeff Hardy. This is, therefore, the 8-man tag match. Rey gets a HUGE pop to return to Smackdown, as does Baptista. This already feels like an important show, well done. As MVP enters, we have a Helms pop-up, and I honestly couldnt understand a word he said. These things are not doing it for me. To start Kendrick bumps around like a champ for Finlay. Batista got a big pop just for tagging in. I've seen people around who, to this day, question the overness and star power of Batista. I dont know why. We have apron-catching shenanigans, and Hornswoggle jumping onto MVP outside before break. That'll teach you to come with the 'ha ha', biatch. Jeff Hardy managed a 'Hardy' chant for the whole 10 seconds he was in the ring. There was a cool spot where Hornswoggle was dancing around in Kendrick's jacket (I'll admit, I laughed), Kendrick chased him into a Finlay clothesline, who walked into a Big Zeke clothesline. In the middle of this match Finlay and JBL were stiffing each other with right hands and elbows and clotheslines. Somewhere, far away, Naitch climaxes. We have a hot tag to Batista, who clears the house, which is code for murdering MVP and Kendrick. Another cool spot here as he tags to Rey who splashes MVP off of Big Dave's shoulders. Rey teases the 619 before Kane has enough of that and kills him outside. We break again, wow. Even Smackdown matches never go this long. Back, and we have more good stuff. JBL does what he does best: act like a d*ck. Wow, in the YouTube thread there is a video from someone saying "I wish Rey would use -this- counter again." Well, unless I'm very much mistaken, he just used -that- counter. We finally descend into the 8-man cluster we all know and love, which ends up as MVP taking a 619 (before Rey senton's Kane outside) and a Swanton for the Jeff Hardy pin. That will teach you to come with the 'ha ha', biatch. Man, was that EVER a good match.

 

JR and Tazz talk, and apparently Vickie isnt coming tonight as she's still selling being dead. That really, really sucks. JR says one of the hottest rivalries is between Undertaker and Show (oh no..). Now, he says, lets take you back (NO...), lets get you up to date (Dont do it JR!) with this...ARGHHHHHHHH! Yes folks, lets re-f*cking-play Unfor-f*cking-given. I dont know whether to cry or shoot myself in the temple. If I never see another replay of Taker/Show it will be way, way too soon.

 

Backstage (what took them so long?) Adamle is backstage, but more importantly, Teddy and Tiffany are backstage. They, talk, before Show comes in and tells them to get out of his office. His office. Oh crap. Chavo walks in (this just gets better..) and talks about Taker. Show blames Chavo for everything. He never really said why. He threatens Chavo and tells him he has a match. Show, when Chavo is doing better than you, you suck. Urgh. He's now being mean to Chavo for no earthly reason I can think of. Stay tuned.

 

In much, much better news, its time for Santino! He brings up the Honk-A-Meter, and he's now been champion for 6.71 weeks. Thats only 57.29 weeks to go! This is awesome. He then calls Shelton "goldilocks" and says that he's only champion of one country, whereas Santino is champion of "all the land masses which protrude above sea level". Hence, he is the champion of Planet Earth! Awesome. We break, when I assume he disses Favre, available on wwe.com. Back from the break, Shelton cuts his own titon tron promo, and calls Santino "Beth's girlfriend". This is basically a 60-second comedy match. Santino busts out the SALUTE~ whilst flat on his back selling a push kick. Awesome. Shelton hits the PayDirt way early, as Truth's music hits and he comes rapping from the crowd. Shelton, strangely, is distracted enough to not pin Santino, but undistracted enough to keep kicking him around. As Truth reaches the floor, Santino brings Shelton down from the second rope and surprisingly rolls him up with DOOM. Truth never stopped walking, all the way up the ramp. The music cuts for a big "Wassup". Shelton is pissed. That was kinda...weird.

 

Well, its the Big Show. Crap. He talks, and brings out Chavo. I'm guessing it will be either Khali or Kozlov. No, better! Mizark Henry! Oh, and Khali. There is still no reason as to why Show is being mean to Chavo, and I wouldnt care if there was. The match went something like headbutt, tag, CHOP OF DOOM, tag, World's Strongest Slam, tag, Head Squeeze of Doom, bell. Actually it wasnt 'something like' it at all. That was literally it. Outside, Show hits a knockout punch on Chavo. Oh man, if they replay that for the next 10 years I'm pretty sure I will commit suicide. Anyway, this is still all pointless and confusing. Show talks again. BONG, lights, Show walks out, lights, Taker is in the ring. Thats it. Is there anyone more utterly boring and utterly crap in wrestling right now than Big Show? Seriously.

 

Priceless are in the ring. We have a box promo as to why Raw > Smackdown. In your dreams, Teddy. The Colons come out, and Carlito makes it a 6-man tag. Oh, ok. Obviously its Punk, who got a big pop. We have a decent, short 6-man. JR talks about Dusty and busts out an "if you will" for my personal enjoyment. Finish is Colons clearing for a GTS on Teddy for the win. Again, short but fun enough.

 

Aha! Business is about to pick up, because THE main event is on next. Beth Phoenix v Michelle McCool. Its a Lumberjack match? Man, it has to be THE most uninventive way to get all the females on TV, but I dont care. Seeing my VICTORIA makes me happy. Wow, Michelle is wearing a fantastic outfit. +1 Michelle. She totally circumvents protocol by entering the ring on the heel side, as Maryse is all "HA, I so got that b*tch!" Maryse rules. Another decent but short match. Michelle gets a lot of offense on Beth, by Beth standards, which is sure to piss people off. Good work. They only actually go outside once, for a big cluster, ending with Maryse knocking Michelle down. Finish was Maryse again getting involved for Beth to hit the distracted chickenwing bomb for the win. Good stuff. VICTORIA heartily congratulated Maryse on her big victory, which was great. This whole thing needed more VICTORIA. Beth and Candice epically failed at promoting their PPV match (they didnt even make eye contact), and they used the match more to get Maryse v Michelle over, which seems weird, but who cares as Maryse > Candice. It is a shame though as a Beth/Candice rematch at No Mercy should have been put over a whole lot more. On another note, Raw has now won 3/3 of the Champion v Champion matches. Way to put your show over.

 

We recap recent Jericho/HBK events. It was hard to focus as I am so used to the searing pain I experience when we have a replay on Smackdown. We run down No Mercy.

 

Its time for YOUR main event, Champion v Champion v Champion. Matt Hardy comes out, followed by Da Game. Coming out second? O...k. Hmm, we go to break. We come back to...the match well underway? What the f*ck is that? Impact-level bullsh*t is what it is. Anywho, to 'start' it was a very slow, plodding, throw-the-guy-out kind of three-way. We have the customary powerbomb-superplex spot early on. It picked up in the last few minutes, and it only went about 10. We have Walls of Jerichos, before we trade moves into a random Pedigree on Matt Hardy for the win. HHH wins. Well I for one am shocked. Afterwards, Jericho Codebreaks Da Game and grabs a ladder. We get some 'HBK' chants (finally!) but he swerves and hits Matt and puts him in the ladder, which brings out Jeff with the save. By this time HHH is up, and he gets Twist of Fated! Jeff sets up the ladder and climbs it, but he comes off into a-

 

End transmission.

 

I'm sorry, I just cant. I cannot take another week of this Kozlov bullsh*t. If you must know, Jeff came off the top into a headbutt. Kozlov hit the (terrible) Deathdrop on HHH. End show. Holy sheezy, that was a damn good show. It felt really important, and was a great showcase for a new start. But God damn has that finish left a bad taste in my mouth. It a tough choice between the Unforgiven replay and Kozlov ending shows as to which makes me want to kill myself more. Both make me feel like giving up on life. Argh, argh, ARGH.

 

On the plus side, as I just said, huge show, great show. They managed to squeeze practically everyone the planet onto this show, and considering that, it didnt feel too rushed. Opener was absolutely great, if you watch nothing else, watch this. The other matches were short and the main event was weirdly short, but there was nothing bad. They managed to forward all the feuds they needed to forward (Show/Taker, Maryse/Michelle, Truth/Shelton, Jeff/HHH) and even one that they really didnt need to (Kozlov/me).

 

I assume that Kozlov will interfere at the PPV, turning it into a full blown Jeff/HHH/Kozlov three way feud. Although I assume that assuming that the Smackdown booking collective have more brain cells than Baptista, and by the evidence of the Kozlov main event push itself, thats no certainty.

That was me, lol.

 

I'll be a happy chappy if he does pull out the backflip-reverse DDT.
