Re: WWE: The TwoThousandAndEleven Diaries
Friday Night Smackdown (August 12, 2011)
The show opens with Teddy Long, Christian and Cody Rhodes. He says that in preparation for their match at Summerslam they will be playing pick your poison tonight! There is a cheer as Rhodes says that he will defeat whoever Christian puts against him because heís the next World Heavyweight Champion and Christian replies by saying that the title isnít going anywhere and there is some more bickering to end the segment.
Match One: Daniel Bryan and Sin Cara defeat The Punjab Parallel after Sin Cara hits the Hilatura Loca on Jinder Mahal. This means that Bryan/Cara have qualified to the final of the World Tag Team Championship tournament, to be held at Summerslam.
Justin Gabriel and Matt Striker make their way out and Striker says that Gabriel is in the perfect position for the triple threat match at Summerslam- he has nothing to lose and everything to gain. Striker says that Gabriel will indeed gain Ezekiel Jacksonís Intercontinental Championship and Wade Barrettís Money in the Bank briefcase this Sunday and it will make him instant hot property. They take a seat at ringside for the next match.
Match Two: Ezekiel Jackson defeats Wade Barrett in a non-title match with the Torture Rack Backbreaker. After the match Gabriel attempts a sneak attack but Zeke scares him off and the Intercontinental Champion stands strong.
We go backstage to see Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase talking to a mystery man about a match later tonight and then see them shake hands.
We cut away to Christian doing the same thing but we actually see who heís talking to and itís Chris Jericho! Christian and Jericho hug and Jericho says that heíll see Cody Rhodes in the main event.
Match Three: The Hart Dynasty defeats Y0UTH with the Hart Attack on Bateman in a good match, qualifying to face Daniel Bryan/Sin Cara for the World Tag Team Championships at Summerslam.
We go backstage to Ezekiel Jackson who is with Jack Korpela for an interview. Big Zeke says that he proved tonight why he is the Intercontinental Champion and he will walk out of Summerslam not only still champion, but also the new Mr. Money in the Bank.
Chavo Guerrero comes down to the ring to introduce Brodus Clay once again but this time he introduces him as Christianís pick your poison opponent for tonight!
Match Four: Christian defeats Brodus Clay with the Killswitch. After the match Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase glare at him from the ramp.
Roxxi makes her way down to the ring for a promo. She says that she doesnít like stereotypical pretty girls who flounce around and wear make-up and short skirts and do handstands instead of wrestle. She says that when she first saw Beth she was convinced she wasnít one of these girls and Beth Phoenix herself comes out to confirm this. Roxxi says that Beth doesnít know how pretty she is and that she canít bring herself to partner with her. Beth is shocked but says to let the greater woman win and face Melina for the Divas Championship at Summerslam.
Match Five: Roxxi defeats Beth Phoenix with The Barbie Buster to earn herself the right to face Melina at Summerslam for the title.
We go backstage to Randy Orton who says that he would have loved to face Christian in his pick your poison match and show everyone that he is really better than him. He says that Chris Jericho and Christian hugged tonight and it was a special moment but he has a knack for ruining moments.
Main Event: Cody Rhodes defeats Chris Jericho with the Cross Rhodes after Ted DiBiase grabbed Jerichoís leg and distracted him. After the match Christian runs out and brawls with Cody and Ted leaving Jericho recovering in the ring. However, as soon as he gets to his feet Randy Orton out of nowhere runs and nails him with the RKO before posing to end the show.
