WWE Smackdown results- Edge returns to Smackdown

After a brief intro featuring Edge and his return to the WWE, we get the normal show opening as well as a tease for special footage from Raw. Chris Jericho then makes his way to the ring for a promo and he is less than pleased. Jericho is unhappy with his loss at the Royal Rumble and is just as unhappy with Edge’s return. He calls out Teddy Long to register a formal complaint but he does not answer. Chris decides to go look for him but Edge is in his office instead. They both claim the other will regret Edge’s return and Jericho leaves without incident.

Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match – John Morrison def Drew McIntyre & Kane: Morrison opens by throwing shots at both opponents and tries rolls up Drew for a quick pin attempt. McIntyre and Morrison then combine for a double DDT on Kane but their teamwork is short lived as they immediately attack each other. John launches himself at McIntyre near the ropes and they both tumble over the top and we get some commercials.

As we return to action McIntyre and Kane are brawling in the ring but Morrison is back in as soon as Kane goes for a cover. McIntyre hits Morrison with a tilt-the-world backbreaker but the pin attempt is broken up by the Big Red Machine. Kane climbs to the top rope but Morrison leaps up to kick him in the head. McIntyre clotheslines Morrison over the top rope and then tires to superplex Kane but fails. Kane goes for the chokeslam but Morrison is back in and interrupts with a springboard kick on both men. Morrison hits an around the world DDT on McIntyre but can’t get the pinfall and Kane takes turns pounding on both men in opposite corners. Kane gets a sideslam on John for a two count then follows with his flying clothesline. Kane looks for the chokeslam but McIntyre hits him with the IC title and then nails him with the Future Shock. Morrison breaks up the pinfall with a shining wizard then hits Starship Pain on Kane to get the pin and a spot in the title match.

R-Truth def Mike Knok (Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match)

Truth begins with some of his acrobatic dodging but Knox answers by flooring him with his huge somewhat flying crossbody and gets an early nearfall. Mike charges Truth near the ropes and goes flying out over the top rope. Truth flies out after him with a slingshot senton and then quickly pushes him back into the ring. Truth sets him up for the ax kick but Knox dodges it only to get leveled by the Lie Detector instead and that’s enough for Truth to get the pinfall.

After the match we get a replay of Bret Hart’s confrontation this Monday with Vince McMahon on Raw. In addition to that we get bonus footage of what took place after Raw went off the air as John Cena ran out to stop Batista and Vince from inflicting further damage on the Hitman. Basically the black and white footage is Batista beating up Cena and Batista Bombing him on the cold steel of the ring steps.

Meanwhile at the Hall of Justice, CM Punk and the Straight Edge Society were also watching this disturbing footage. Punk considers that the evil Batista might have similar plans for him tonight and is worried about the future of their cause should Dave be successful with those dastardly plans. He then challenges Luke and Serena to help him defeat Batista and his wonder twins accept this honorable task.

CM Punk def Batista (Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match)

Dave seems overly amused with Punk and his entourage and begins the match by smirking and chilling in the corner. Both Punk and the ref try to get him to begin the match but instead he simply leaves the ring and smirks his way up the ramp as the ref counts him out and awards the match to CM Punk. The Society then celebrates like they are going to Disneyland.

Chris Jericho def Matt Hardy (Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match)

Before he makes his way to the ring matt stops to congratulate Maria on her other TV show cause he’s a big sweetie. Hardy backs his foe into a corner to start and Jericho responds by taking a timeout. Once Chris climbs back in he doesn’t fare much better and when he charges Hardy near the ropes and he gets back dropped out of the ring. Matt then follows with a clothesline from the ring apron but Jericho turns the tide by lamming him into the ring steps. Chris climbs back in the ring and tries to win the match by count out but Hardy is able to just barely beat the ref’s count. Jericho goes on the attack but soon misses a shoulder block in the corner and Matt answers with a neckbreaker. Hardy then follows with his clothesline/bulldog combo and it is enough for a long two count. Lionsault by Jericho gets a nearfall and Matt answers with the Side Effect for one of his own. Chris tries a pin attempt with the assistance of the ropes but can’t hold Hardy down for three. Matt goes for the Twist of Fate but Jericho holds onto the top rope and then hits the Codebreaker for the pinfall and spot in the Elimination Chamber match.

After a brief recap of the Women’s title match at the Royal Rumble, Mickie James comes down to the ring for a promo.  She pats herself on the back for her recent title win and for taking the high road in her feud with Michelle McCool. Beth Phoenix interrupts to congratulate Mickie while reminding her of how awesome she is and her Rumble appearance was. Vickie Guerrero then excuses herself to make a tag-team match between them and Michelle McCool and Layla.

Beth Phoenix & Mickie James def Layla & Michelle McCool

Beth starts off against Michelle and tosses her around for a bit but McCool attacks her leg to get back into the match. Matt Striker calls McCool a submission specialist and I try to keep my dinner down as she continues to attack the leg of the Glamazon. Layla tries to get involved but gets bounced off the ring apron by Phoenix who regains control of McCool and takes her over to her corner to tag in Mickie. However Beth does not leave the ring and instead decks both James and McCool before leaving the ring. Michelle is able to reach her corner to tag in Layla who then falls victim to a quick roll-up by James that ends the match.

Cryme Tyme joins us from a backstage hallway for a Memphis styled version of “Word Up”. This week’s word is “KING” and they use it to pay tribute to BB King, Elvis and of course Jerry Lawler. The WWE’s king then makes a rare Smackdown appearance to holla at his boys and they decide to leave to go find some puppies.

Rey Mysterio def Dolph Ziggler (Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match)

Dolph quickly takes Rey down and taunts him. A clothesline from Ziggler leads to a series of pinning attempts from both men. A brief slugfest leads to Mysterio head scissoring Dolph under the bottom rope and out of the ring. Rey continues his attack with a dive out of the ring but gets caught trying to follow up after forcing Ziggler back inside. After an exchange on the apron, Rey climbs to the top rope but Ziggler hits him with a dropkick as he leaps from the top rope and covers him for a two count. Mysterio gets set up for the 619 off their next exchange but Dolph slides out of the ring and into a commercial break.

As we return to Memphis, Ziggler seems to be in control and hits a super-plex for a nearfall. After being grounded and pounded for a bit, Rey makes a comeback with a slingshot senton then nails a kick on a roll-thru reversal for a nearfall. Rey’s reverse DDT gets him another two count, but Ziggler catches another offensive attempt for a slam and a nearfall of his own. Dolph hits Mysterio with a backbreaker then looks for a suplex but Rey rolls him up for the pin and the final spot in the Elimination Chamber match. After the match Ziggler tries to get revenge by attacking Mysterio but gets hit with the 619 instead.

So Smackdown’s main event inside the demonic steel for the upcoming Elimination Chamber pay-per-view will be the Undertaker defending his title against CM Punk, Chris Jericho, Rey Mysterio, John Morrison and R Truth.

Main Event Interview – The Cutting Edge

Edge lets us know that he is glad to be back and says that all of the hard work during his rehab was worth it. He replays the footage of his confrontation with Sheamus from Raw and is then interrupted by Chris Jericho. They bicker back and forth for a bit until CM Punk interrupts to save the segment (and all of you). After Punk preaches for a bit, the lights go out and the Undertaker appears once they come back on. Edge and Taker clear Jericho and the Society out of the ring and then stare each other down as the show ends

WWE Smackdown results 01/29/2010- ‘Hits and Misses’


Opening Segment: I had a few problems with the start of Smackdown, but on the whole it was good. I loved how Rey Mysterio interrupted DX. His verbal confrontation against Shawn Michaels was very well done. I loved how he called Michaels out for disrespecting him. Some of the jokes that ensued were not particularly funny, but they were ok. I also liked CM Punk’s interruption trying to get the focus back on him and his Straight Edge Society. I liked hearing Triple H say that he doesn’t drink, smoke or do drugs either. At some point, someone had to say that since that part of Punk’s character shouldn’t be what makes him a heel (as opposed to his cult leader status). I could have done without the gay joke again. This all set up what was a bait-and-switch that I can live with. Assuming that Punk and Luke Gallows do get their Tag Team Title shot down the line, I am fine with getting to see Triple H vs. Punk and Mysterio vs. Michaels instead. Some may criticize WWE for not announcing that match ahead of time, but DX was advertised for the show, and this was an organic way to get to that match.

Triple H vs. Punk: This was a good match and a tease for what these two could possibly do in a longer PPV type match. They did a nice job of booking the match to keep switching control. This wasn’t a typical formula with Punk in control for the bulk of the middle of the match until Triple H made a come back. It went back and forth better than that. The DQ finish was predictable, but was the right move. Serena looked bad trying to jump on The Game’s back the first time, but got it right the second time. Michaels’ save worked well as did the confrontation between DX and Punk afterwards with Punk using Serena as a shield. The frustration shown by Triple H afterwards will help in the build to the eventual Tag Title match.

Jericho vs. Truth: I was glad to see WWE go to this match after it was set up on the previous night’s Superstars. Chris Jericho and R-Truth work well together. I like seeing another mid-card wrestler getting at least a mini push. Jericho has been on something of a losing streak lately, which I hope doesn’t continue for too long. He can only do so many great promos to keep his heat. He needs some wins too. But, it was a good match. My only complaint is that at 8 minutes, it was too short to have a commercial break. I would have rather seen the match only go 5 minutes without a commercial. Other than that, I enjoyed the match.

Morrison vs. McIntyre: This was another good match on this show. The quality wrestling just kept coming and I wasn’t going to complain. The announcers did a good job of setting the stage for this match, commenting on Drew McIntyre’s cheating ways and how he could not get disqualified in this match to keep the Intercontinental Title. I also liked John Morrison’s promo beforehand as it upheld the importance of the IC Belt. Morrison and McIntyre should be commended for having a no DQ match that wasn’t a garbage brawl. For the most part, it was a traditional wrestling match, but they used weapons and the ringside area in smart ways to enhance the action. Morrison had been on a track to the main event, but this losing streak against the rookie McIntyre goes against that. I would love to see Morrison go after the World Title in 2010, but it is hard to do that when he can’t beat the IC Champ.

Mysterio vs. Michaels: It seems that whenever WWE puts Rey Mysterio in the main event (or at the very least a prominent position) on Smackdown, the ratings are high. If that’s the case, and if DX is still a draw, then the ratings for this show culminating in this excellent main event have to be very good. I knew going into the match that the show had to end with Undertaker doing a double choke slam on Mysterio and Michaels. I also knew that Batista had to get involved after what he did to Mysterio last week and his backstage encounter with Michaels this week. The end of the show was predictable, yet very effective in hyping the Royal Rumble. The match itself did not disappoint. It went nearly 16 minutes and on a show that featured good to very good wrestling, this was the best. The match really went back and forth very well. They had so many counters and neither could sustain momentum. I like how the two quick, agile and high flying wrestlers also brawled some and used mat wrestling and submission holds. There was a little bit of everything. They each got to hit all their signature spots. The near falls at the end were convincing. As soon as Mysterio set up for a springboard after finally hitting the 6-1-9, I knew the Shelton Benjamin ending was coming. But again, it was awesome even if I saw it coming. These two in a 20+ minute PPV match would easily deliver a match of the year candidate.


Batista’s Hat: Batista just looked silly in that outfit with the sweater vest and hat. I honestly can’t remember what he said in his interview with Josh Mathews since I was distracted by his hat. My wife event commented that her pet from Petville has the same outfit that Batista was wearing which for those of you not familiar with the Facebook “game” is not a compliment. That outfit would have been perfect for a different type of heel, but not for a badass heel like Batista.

LayCool: As much as I liked the long Divas segment last week, I did not like this week’s Piggie James scene. I give Layla credit for going all out with it, but I didn’t find it entertaining in the least. It didn’t make me more disgusted with Michelle McCool. It didn’t make me want to see Mickie James get revenge by taking the Women’s Championship at the PPV more than I already did. It went on too long. If it had been shorter it wouldn’t have been so bad. The fact that a WWE referee would go along with the charade was pretty stupid also.

Inside Pulse: WWE Smackdown Report 01/22/10

Finlay def Batista: Dave quickly backs Finlay into a corner and then stops to flex which pisses the Irishman off and he goes on the attack. Finlay hits his Rolling Thunder for a two count and boots Batista outside of the ring. Fit follows Batista out and will soon wish he had not as Dave brutally attacks him, partially destroying the announce table and drawing a disqualification in the process of displaying his rage. Batista eventually returns to the ring and cuts a promo about how he is going to win the Royal Rumble and go on to WrestleMania to face the Undertaker for the title and end his streak.

CM Punk and Luke Gallows join us as we are treated to a replay of their victory last week that earned them the #1 contendership to the tag-titles last week. Punk starts his promo on the ramp this week and continues it all the way to the ring. He lets us know that their title shot will be next week on Smackdown and that they will beat the morally corrupt team of DX. As he walks around the ring to consider whom he might save this week, a young lady leaps from the stands and tries to grab Punk to volunteer until a member of security to intervene and lead her away as she proclaims that she needs Punk. He sees this and reconsiders allowing her into the ring as his choice for the week. She says her name is Serena and is of course the awesome Serena Deeb who has a developmental deal and I think has made a few appearances on ECW and on She happily takes the pledge but before she gets her head shaved we actually break for commercials. But when we return she happily allows her head to be shaved and I hope she got a nice bonus for sacrificing her hair. If they are going to use any of these segments to add a member to Punk’s stable she’d be a fine choice.

John Morrison & R-Truth def Chris Jericho & Drew McIntyre: This was supposed to be a handicapped match with Jericho and McIntyre teaming against Morrison as per Vickie Guerrero’s orders. But Teddy Long stops the match from starting it and brings out Truth to even the odds and allow for another commercial break. Jericho starts again Morrison and John gets an early advantage before tagging in R-Truth. The faces combine for some Rocker-esque tandem offense on Jericho and follow by attacking McIntyre on the apron and then dumping Jericho on top of him at ringside. Chris is able to turn the tide and gets a cheap shot on Truth to knock him off the apron before he and Drew follow with a similar attack on Morrison. The Shaman of Sexy gets caught on the wrong side of town for an extended period and Jericho takes advantage of this segment to head over to the announce table to offer them some tips. Morrison fights back and hits his backbreaker/Russian legsweep combo on Jericho and it leaves both men trying to reach their corners. But it is McIntyre who is able to tag in and he decks Truth to prevent Morrison from reaching him and we hit another commercial break.

As we return to action Morrison is still trying to fight off McIntyre to make a tag but a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker halts his efforts. Jericho returns to the fray and amps up the taunting as he continues to hold the advantage for his team. Chris tries to set-up for a superplex but John fights out of it and tosses Jericho off. Morrison follows with a crossbody and nearly makes a tag after fighting out of a Walls of Jericho attempt but McIntyre tags back in and cuts him off. Drew goes for another tilt-a-whirl but Morrison reverses it into a ddt and both men make tags. Truth explodes with a flurry of offense and nails Jericho with a kick that leads to a pin attempt that McIntyre breaks up. Morrison returns to the ring to dump Drew out and they scuffle outside as Truth rolls up Jericho for a nearfall. McIntyre is tossed back in the ring by Morrison and that distracts the ref from Jericho’s pin attempt on Truth after an enziguri. While Drew is being removed by the ref, John kicks Jericho in the head, Truth follows with an ax kick and then pins him for the win.

Michelle McCool and Layla have an in-ring promo to throw Mickie James a party (complete with a pig cake) for leaving Smackdown. Lots of fat jokes and other stupidity take place until Maria interrupts to denounce their bitchiness. Maria says they are annoying and proclaims that their taunts will be ending as of tonight. So they make fun of her for awhile. Mickie comes out to reiterate that she is not going anywhere and the verbal catfight continues until finally a brawl ensues. Beth Phoenix joins the fun and after pondering the situation for a moment she joins the heel side and assists in beating the good girls down. Eventually the food gets involved and Mickie gets cake and punch dumped all over her. This angle gets dumber and more annoying to watch every week.

Cryme Tyme vs. Charlie Haas & Mike Knox: JTG starts against Mike Knox and is able to quickly hit the Mug Shot on him but instead of following up he dances around and Knox is able to tag in Charlie. But the match does not go much further as Kane comes out to let us know none of the people in the ring are important. He enters the ring and tosses both teams over the top rope before lighting up the turnbuckles and Striker and Grisham try to pretend he might win the Rumble.

Matt Hardy & Great Khali def The Hart Dynasty (with Natalya): Natalya tries to flirt with Khali before the match starts as Grisham gets in a Leno joke. Matt and Tyson start the match and Kidd quickly backs him into his team’s corner. A tag is made, Smith trips Hardy and Kidd follows with a leg drop. DH then enters the ring and hits a delayed vertical suplex on Matt to keep their advantage. Natalya goes over to Khali and tries to lure him away from the ring as Smith and Kidd set Hardy up for a springboard Hart Attack. But Matt shoves Smith into Kidd to halt the attempt and then gets David in a small package for the quick pinfall.

Your main event of the night is Rey Mysterio “calling out” the Undertaker. The dead champ answers this challenge and I think his entrance took longer than two of the matches tonight. Rey says he’ll win the title, Taker says Mysterio will rest in peace and then leaves without incident. As Taker walks back up the ramp, Batista attacks Mysterio from behind and hits a Batista Bomb. Next week is set-up to be a “big” pre-Rumble episode of Smackdown with Drew McIntyre defending the intercontinental championship against John Morrison and DX defending the unified tag titles against CM Punk and Luke Gallows. However, this week’s show was extremely weak with only one legitimate match and only one good promo in a show filled with annoying nonsense.
