FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN!
Live from Providence, Rhode Island

SMACKDOWN begins with a video package of Kofi Kingston’s involvement in the World Championship picture over the past couple of months. It shows his involvement in matches between Kane and Undertaker, his title match with Kane at No Mercy and his #1 contender match with Undertaker on SMACKDOWN with some soundbites mixed in. The video turns attention to tonight and Kofi Kingston’s World Championship match with Kane as announced by SMACKDOWN General Manager, Teddy Long, last week. The video ends with Michael Cole’s asking “Can Kofi Kingston finally get his hands on the World Title next week?” as SMACKDOWN heads into the opening credits ...



*** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO ***

*** S.O.S. ***



Kofi Kingston is ready for action as he heads down to the ring with the pyro exploding to signal his arrival. He energetically gets into the ring and performs his ‘Boom Boom Boom!’ pose on the turnbuckle looking determined to capture the championship tonight! However, that will be easier said than done as he is facing this man ...

*** MAN ON FIRE ***



Kane heads out with the red light all around the arena with the World Championship belt around his waist ... He gets into the ring and drops his arms to make the ringposts explode with fire before Tony Chimel announces that this match is for the World Championship and then introduces the participants in the contest ...

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: KANE vs. KOFI KINGSTON

A loud chant of ‘Kofi! Kofi!’ echoes around the arena as the pumped up Ghanaian circles the ring sizing up the monstrous World Champion across from him. With a look of seriousness on his face, Kingston locks up with Kane but is flung down hard on the mat into the corner. With Kane staring at the challenger with an evil smirk on his face, the crowd boo as Kofi gets back to his feet determined. For a second time, they lock up and Kane again pushes Kingston down into the corner of the ring with Kane now showing a couple of signs of over-confidence. As he laughs out loud, Kofi rushes over and hits a forearm that staggers Kane and gives the advantage to the challenger. Kofi hits a few forearms in the corner as Kane covers up before using his feet to stagger Kane further. Kofi climbs quickly up the turnbuckle and launches himself off the top rope and connects with a dropkick to the chest of Kane. First cover of the match here for Kofi Kingston ...

* 2 *
* Kane powers out with ease! *


Kane tries to shove Kofi away again as they get to their feet but Kofi is too quick and he avoids the contact. Hitting the ropes, Kofi hits a second drop kick to the side of Kane’s head this time before going for another cover on the champion.

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kane escapes easily again! *


This time, Kane does manage to shove Kofi away hard into the corner as they get to their feet. Kane then charges towards Kofi in the corner but the challenger ducks out of the way before hitting a pendulum kick to the head of Kane through the ropes. With Kane staggered again, Kofi jumps up to the middle rope and hits a flying clothesline to the champion that takes him down for a third time. Another cover from the challenger ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kane gets his shoulder off the mat in time! *


With Kane staggering into the corner, Kofi runs over and straddles the champion with his feet on the middle rope. He begins to punch Kane square in the head as the crowd count along but Kane regains his anger and pushes Kofi backwards from the rope and crashing down to the mat on the back of his head and shoulders. Kane takes a second before heading over to Kingston as he gets up. Kane hits a scoop slam to Kofi and follows this up with a dropkick to the side of Kofi’s head as he is sat up. Kane laughs as he looks around the arena waiting for Kofi to get to his feet. When he does, Kane drags him up and forces him back into the corner and hits a series of choke thrust uppercuts with a big third knocking Kofi up and over the top rope to the outside ...


MICHAEL COLE: Can Kofi Kingston get back into this match after the break and secure a shock title win?

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


SMACKDOWN returns with Kane on the outside and Kofi Kingston down at his feet as we see that the World Champion is continuing to dominate this World Championship bout. Kane lifts Kofi up with a two handed choke and rams him back first into the steel ring post to the annoyance of the referee. He threatens Kane with a disqualification but that wouldn’t really help Kofi anyway. Kane grabs Kingston by the back of the neck and forces him under the rope and back into the ring.

MICHAEL COLE: Kane is just dominating the challenger here. Is this it?

Kane rolls Kofi onto his back and makes the cover by hooking the near leg ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kofi kicks out to the delight of the fans! *


However, Kane does not look worried and he climbs the ropes looking to inflict pain on the Number 1 contender. As Kofi groggily gets to his feet, Kane launches from the top rope and hits a flying clothesline that takes Kingston down again. Another cover from Kane ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kofi gets a foot up on the rope this time! *


With Kane looking a little annoyed this time, Kofi is dragged by the champion into the centre of the ring and given a stiff kick down to the chest. Kane goes for the cover again ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* No! Kofi will not give this up! *


Kane stands back and allows Kingston to slowly get to his feet. As he does, Kane stands back and threatens the chokeslam to finish the match once and for all. The WWE Universe clap their hands and are fully behind Kingston as he looks to secure the World Championship for the first time ever. However, this time he could be set to fail. Kane locks his hand around Kofi’s throat and goes to lift him up ... However, Kofi manages to wriggle out of the hold and hits a series of quick kicks to the legs and waist of the champion. With Kane down to one knee, Kofi again heads for the top rope and goes for a high crossbody to Kane ... Kane manages to catch Kofi by the throat though and set ups before delivering a huge chokeslam that leaves Kingston sprawled out on the canvas.


MICHAEL COLE: That is it, Kane retains the World Championship ...

Kane goes for the pinfall ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* KOFI KINGSTON KICKS OUT OF THE CHOKESLAM! *


Kane cannot believe it and the WWE Universe goes wild as Kingston escapes the chokeslam and lives to fight another day. Kane is livid and stalks the referee before heading back to Kofi and grabbing him by the throat again. He threatens to hit a second chokeslam but Kofi hits a kick to the side of Kane and then kicks his arm away to release the choke hold. With Kane’s hold broken, Kofi again hits a series of forearms and kicks before going up top again and this time hitting the crossbody from high. Kofi goes for the pinfall, is this Kofi’s time?

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kane just manages to get out of the pinning predicament! *


Another loud ‘Kofi!’ chant echoes around the arena and Kofi takes inspiration as he stands over Kane on the mat on his back. Kofi bounces off the ropes, jigs around a little and then hits the Boom Drop, dropping two legs across the chest and torso of the Big Red Monster. Kofi scrambles over and pins Kane again ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kane will not lie down! *


What is it going to take for Kofi to get the win here? He stands back and begins to signal for the finishing move, the Trouble in Paradise. Clapping his hands together in the corner of the ring, Kane slowly gets to his feet. Kofi spins round and goes for the kick to the side of the head of the champion but he ducks and avoids the contact. With Kofi disorientated, Kane again goes for a chokeslam but this time, Kofi fights out instead. Back and forth, back and forth, who will get control? TROUBLE IN PARADISE! Kofi Kingston with a great move and Kane is laid out!


MICHAEL COLE: Here we go, Kofi is going to be a new champion!

Kofi goes for the cover ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Ohhhhh! Kane has kicked out! *


A look of frustration on the face of Kofi tells the tale and he backs away into the corner. On commentary, Mick Foley urges Kofi to not give up, to keep giving it his all. Kingston again sets up for a second Trouble in Paradise but Kane ducks again and catches Kofi in the choke hold again. CHOKESLAM from Kane! Surely it is all over now? Kane doesn’t make the pinfall though and drags his opponent to his feet. With a taunt to his brother, the Undertaker, he makes to slit his throat as a sign that the match is over. Kane lifts Kingston up ready for the Tombstone Piledriver. Kofi begins to fight but it is too late ... TOMBSTONE!

Kane covers Kofi, it’s all academic ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* 3 *


WINNER: Kane (13:28)


Michael Cole and Mick Foley discuss how close Kofi Kingston came to taking the World Championship from Kane as the Big Red Monster staggers away up the ramp with a look of relief on his face. The cameras zoom in on a disappointed Kofi Kingston who is slowly getting to his feet and the WWE Universe give him a great ovation for his attempts tonight. Kofi looks round with a wry smile but is clearly disappointed that he failed to capture the title tonight ... He looks to head out of the ring when there is a commotion behind him. Kofi turns around and there is Edge. What is he doing here? SPEAR!

Edge hits a perfect spear to Kofi Kingston and then heads up the ramp. The RAW team captain for Survivor Series has attacked Kofi for seemingly no reason. There has been no ill feeling between them. Why has Edge invaded SMACKDOWN and taken out Kofi?


********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


SMACKDOWN returns with Teddy Long in his General Manager office and the Intercontinental Champion, Alberto Del Rio, who looks rather unhappy. Del Rio informs the GM that his defeat to Evan Bourne last week was a disgrace, that the referee cost Del Rio a place in the Semi Finals of the tournament to determine the Number 1 contender for the World Championship at Survivor Series. Teddy Long reminds Del Rio that submission holds have to be broken up if the ropes are involved and that Del Rio has only got himself to blame for ignoring the 5-count of the referee. Del Rio claims that he had Evan Bourne beat and that he had made him tap out but Long is having none of it ...

Del Rio is joined in the GM office now by Dolph Ziggler and his girlfriend, Vickie Guerrero. Ziggler also claims that poor officiating cost him his place in the Semi Finals and says that he had Matt Hardy pinned in their match last week. Long is again forced to remind Ziggler of the rules – you cannot pin someone when their feet are in the ropes. Vickie claims that Teddy Long is conspiring against Ziggler and Del Rio and that he should think more carefully about the superstars he wishes to upset. She promises that this will not be the last that Teddy Long hears about the situation and walks out with Ziggler. Del Rio looks at Long, winks and follows them out of the room leaving Long looking concerned.

SMACKDOWN returns with Mark Henry in the ring ...

*** SOMEBODIES GONNA’ GET IT ***


Henry is smiling and beaming and Cole and Foley discuss his interference in the match between Chavo and Cody Rhodes last week. Replays of Henry’s interference are shown and how it cost Rhodes a place in the Semi Finals of the World Championship Tournament before Cody Rhodes heads out for their match ...

*** SMOKE AND MIRRORS ***


’Dashing’ Cody Rhodes heads out to a negative response from the WWE Universe but looks determined to take revenge on Mark Henry who has been proving to be a pain in the backside for him and his tag team partner, Drew McIntyre, for weeks now. Rhodes gets into the ring and the referee rings the bell ...

CODY RHODES vs. MARK HENRY

The match begins with Cody Rhodes talking trash to Mark Henry who just smiles as he listens to Cody’s nonsense. Cody continues to berate the appearance of Henry who just holds his arms out and edges closer to Rhodes who eventually cracks and swings for Mark Henry and smashes him in the chest with a forearm. Henry hardly feels it and stares at Rhodes still smiling before pushing him hard in the chest and down to the mat at the ropes. Rhodes looks shocked as he gets to his feet warily no longer talking to Henry but looking a little fearful instead. Rhodes gets up and confronts Henry angrily and Henry tries to catch him by surprise with a clothesline but Rhodes ducks and hits a drop kick to stagger Henry backwards. Rhodes takes a chance and slaps Henry in the face twice to provoke an angry reaction from the World’s Strongest Man who chases Rhodes out of the ring.

As the referee counts both men out, Rhodes manages to stay away from Mark Henry and heads back into the ring to break the count. As Henry re-enters the ring, Rhodes catches him by surprise with a raised knee to the neck and begins to club forearms on the shoulders of Henry that put him down on one knee. Rhodes needs a big move though to put Henry down and uses the Beautiful Disaster – a springboard kick to the head – to send Henry crashing down onto the mat. With the big man down, Rhodes looks to take advantage and drops the knee onto Mark Henry before going for the cover ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Henry powers out! *


Rhodes quickly rushes to the corner and climbs to the top rope as Mark Henry gets to his feet. As Henry turns, Cody flies off the top rope and hits a crossbody to Henry that takes him down to the mat again. Another cover from Cody Rhodes ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Henry powers out to the delight of the crowd! *


With Henry throwing Rhodes halfway across the ring, the ‘Dashing’ superstar looks flustered as we head into the commercial break ...


********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


SMACKDOWN returns with Mark Henry in control as he dominates Cody Rhodes and punishes him for his earlier disrespect. He whips Rhodes into the corner of the ring and runs over to hit a body avalanche in the corner that leaves Rhodes gasping for air and down on his knee in the corner. A replay of Rhodes being slammed on the outside is shown as the turning point of the match from during the break as Henry looks to hurt him more. He drags Rhodes up and locks in a standing bear hug that begins to drive the air out of Cody’s body as he struggles to break free. Henry will not relent and grips his hands together behind his opponent’s back and drives his shoulder into the mid-section of Rhodes as he locks the hold in tighter. Rhodes tries to break out by hitting Henry in the back but it has little effect and Henry holds on in the centre of the ring with the referee now checking on Cody Rhodes.

Rhodes is desperately trying to reach the ropes now as the air is driving out of him and Henry refuses to let go. He begins to edge closer to the ropes and eventually manages to scrape his fingers around them to force the break. Henry looks annoyed and pushes Rhodes in the chest so that he goes back first into the turnbuckle. As Rhodes comes out, Henry scoops him up and drops him down over his knee once, twice, three times before letting Rhodes fall to the mat clutching his side. Pinfall from Mark Henry ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Rhodes somehow kicks out weakly! *


As Henry stands back for a moment, Rhodes crawls to the ropes and hangs over the middle rope. Big mistake. Henry sees this and runs over before leaping onto the back of Rhodes’ neck and sliding through the ropes choking Cody over the middle rope. Henry rolls back into the ring and signals for the World’s Strongest Slam to the pleasure of the fans. He lifts Rhodes up but the ‘Dashing’ one wriggles free and manages to lock in an inverse face lock. Quickly, Rhodes hits the Cross Rhodes to Henry – a little messy but impressive nonetheless – and goes for the quick pin. Can Rhodes get the 3 count?

* 1 *
* 2 *
* 3 *


WINNER: Cody Rhodes (5:02)


Rhodes heads out of the arena with a look of shock on his face that he managed to pick up the win after the beating he took but then composes himself and regains the arrogant attitude that has taken him this far. Henry looks annoyed and there is definitely still some ill feeling between the pair as well as their respective tag teams.

The camera switches to the backstage area where Big Show is walking down the corridor wearing a blue SMACKDOWN t-shirt. He looks happy to be here and shakes hands with some of the backstage people before rounding a corner and stopping suddenly. The camera spins around to reveal that CM Punk is in his path and it seems he has a proposition for Big Show. Punk reminds Show that last week he declined a place on Team Smackdown because he wasn’t happy with the fact that Big Show had defeated him to become captain. Punk suggests that Big Show is not the captain that SMACKDOWN needs and challenges Big Show to a match tonight – if Punk wins, he gets to be the captain of SMACKDOWN instead. Big Show agrees but also suggests that if he wins, CM Punk will be on Team Smackdown anyway. Punk thinks for a moment and agrees and the pair head separate ways with tonight’s main event now set ...


********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


SMACKDOWN returns with highlights of the four Quarter Finals of the World Championship Tournament so far. The announcement is played whilst highlights of Christian’s win over Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre’s win over Kofi Kingston, Evan Bourne’s defeat of Alberto Del Rio via DQ and the return of Matt Hardy with a win over Dolph Ziggler are shown. The video ends and Cole and Foley discuss tonight’s Semi Final matches: Christian vs. Drew McIntyre and Matt Hardy vs. Evan Bourne. Foley picks out Matt Hardy as the man that he thinks will win the right to challenge Kane at Survivor Series ...

*** CLAVICLE ***


In the first Semi Final, it will be Evan Bourne and Matt Hardy and here comes Evan Bourne to the ring. He looks delighted to be in the Semi Final and he gets a nice pop from the crowd as he heads into the ring. However, the clear fans favourite will be his opponent ...

*** LIVE FOR THE MOMENT ***


After his return last week, Matt Hardy is now here in the Semi Finals and looking to prove that he is the man that should face Kane at Survivor Series. He heads to the ring to a great reception after his recent sabbatical – remember that Hardy almost quit the WWE – and looks pumped up and ready. The two faces slap hands in a sign of respect before their match but then the bell is rung and we are ready to go with the serious business ...

SEMI FINAL: EVAN BOURNE vs. MATT HARDY

The two lock up and the match is on the way. Several times, the referee has to break the pair up as they roll into the ropes before Evan Bourne manages to hit an Inzuguri to Hardy that takes him down with a crash. Bourne looks to take advantage as uses many of his high flying moves hitting Hardy with a knee to the jaw before a standing moonsault that allows him to make a cover on Matt Hardy ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Matt Hardy kicks out! *


As Hardy staggers to his feet in the corner, Evan rushes over and hits a high knee to the side of Hardy’s head before allowing Hardy to fall to his knees. Bourne climbs to the top rope and flies off the rope and takes Hardy down with knees on the shoulder that takes Hardy down. Another cover from Evan Bourne ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Hardy kicks out for a second time! *


Bourne hits the ropes and heads back over towards Hardy where he goes for a standing hurricanrana but Matt Hardy manages to block it and tosses Bourne away onto his back on the mat. Hardy buys himself some time by hitting a neckbreaker that leaves both men struggling on the mat. He whips Bourne into the corner of the ring and then runs over to hit a clothesline before then taking Evan down with a bulldog to the mat. Hardy goes for his first pinfall of the match in this fast paced contest ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kick out from Evan Bourne! *


Hardy lifts Bourne up and suplexes him down onto his back with a crash before lifting himself up onto the middle rope. He shouts out ‘Ohhhhhhh!’ whilst striking the typical ‘Hardy’ pose and dropping a huge leg drop to Evan Bourne on the mat. Hardy with a second pinfall ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Bourne kicks out again! *


Hardy waits for Bourne to get to his feet before grabbing Evan and setting up for the Side Effect move. However, Bourne manages to fight out with elbows to the head and that pushes Hardy away from him before Bourne looks to hit Hardy with several kicks to the legs and chest. Hardy staggers back as Bourne puts the boots to him and Bourne lifts him up so he is sat on the top rope. Bourne jumps up and this time he manages to hit the hurricanrana to his opponent. Bourne goes for the cover ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Hardy with the shoulder up! *


Another Inzuguri from Bourne sends Hardy down onto his back again and then heads up for the top rope with a grin on his face. Bourne holds his hand up and then goes for the ‘Air Bourne’ finisher ... However, Hardy gets his knees up and manages to defend himself and sends Bourne across the ring clutching his chest and gasping hard. Hardy drags Bourne up and this time he does manage to hit the Side Effect that leaves Bourne down on the mat. Hardy thinks about the pinfall but decides to finish Evan Bourne off first. Looking to seal a place in the Final, he pulls Bourne up and sets up for his finishing move. Hardy looks round and hits the Twist of Fate to crash Bourne down again. Surely it is over now? Hardy goes for the pin ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* 3 *


WINNER: Matt Hardy (6:43)


Matt Hardy celebrates in the ring as Evan Bourne slides out of the ring looking disappointed but respectful of the effort from his opponent. A nod from Hardy to Bourne shows respect but he is clearly delighted to be in the Final of the tournament and will now turn his attention towards next week’s final against Christian or Drew McIntyre, both of whom he has had past rivalries with, for a chance to go for the World Title at Survivor Series!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********

*** BROKEN DREAMS ***


The second Semi Final is ready to go and out comes the Sinister Scotsman, Drew McIntyre. He walks to the ring with a saunter and Foley reminds us that he was fortunate to beat Kofi Kingston 2 weeks ago after a distraction from Kane disguised as Undertaker. However, Drew looks confident that he will defeat Christian tonight as he heads into the ring ...

*** JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES ***


Christian heads out towards the ring and Michael Cole reminds us of the career of Christian so far here in the WWE. Foley suggests that Christian is the man who wants to become champion more than anybody after seeing his former tag team partner Edge go on to win so many championships whilst he has yet to win the big one. Christian and Drew face off and it is time to see which man will reach the Final of the tournament! Which of these men will face Matt Hardy in next week’s final?

SEMI FINAL: CHRISTIAN vs. DREW McINTYRE

The bell rings and the two men circle the ring staring at each other ready to fight for the right to face Matt Hardy next week. The match begins evenly with Drew and Christian going for it and clearly determined to win the right to go for the World Championship at Survivor Series. However, it is Drew McIntyre who makes the break as he begins to take control with a Big Boot that sends Christian down clutching the side of his head. Drew lifts Christian up into a Fireman’s Carry hold on his shoulders before lifting Christian up over his head and down into a Gutbuster over the knee. McIntyre smirks and then goes for the cover on Christian ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kick out from Christian! *


Christian’s ‘Peeps’ cheer loudly as their man kicks out but Drew McIntyre hits a hip toss that puts Christian back down. A snap suplex from McIntyre keeps him in control as he uses his usual slow, methodical pace to keep Christian down and keep control of the match. As Drew picks Christian up though, Christian tries to hit punches and staggers Drew back before getting back to his feet on a level with his opponent. Drew McIntyre regroups though and hits a double knee arm breaker to take Christian down again. As he gets up, Christian is whipped into the ropes by McIntyre before a tilt-a-whirl slam onto his knee to break Christian’s back. Christian winces in pain and Drew goes for a pinfall ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kick out from Christian! *


Drew looks to set up for his finishing move, the Future Shock DDT, and it doesn’t look great here for Christian. However, Christian manages to hit a back body drop to buy himself some time. Christian then goes for a running forearm smash but Drew ducks and locks Christian in for a belly to back suplex which he hits to take him down again. Another pin from Drew McIntyre ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Christian kicks out again! *


Can Drew McIntyre dominate further and secure the win or will Christian fight back?


********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


SMACKDOWN returns with Christian and Drew going to and fro as Christian gets back into the contest. A replay is shown that shows Christian surprising Drew when he dodges him in the corner and hits a kick through the ropes to Drew’s head. The replay then shows Christian hitting a Diving Plancha from the top rope to Drew after he stumbled out of the ring. Both men are now back in the ring and Christian gets the better of the contest for a while a hits a flapjack to McIntyre before going for his first cover of the match ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* McIntyre kicks out! *


Christian quickly climbs the ropes and looks to hit a diving crossbody from the top. However, Drew ducks and Christian crashes to the mat as Drew taps his forehead to show his wisdom to the crowd. As Foley and Cole berate Drew for wasting time, he is surprised when Christian rolls him up for a surprise pin ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Drew kicks out! *


Angrily, Drew rushes at Christian and swings for a clothesline but Christian ducks and counters with an inverted DDT that smashes Drew down onto his back. With Christian now on a roll, he climbs the ropes and goes for a diving headbutt that connects with Drew McIntyre’s shoulder before going for a pinfall ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* McIntyre kicks out again *


Both men are giving it everything here as they seek to secure a place in the Final against Matt Hardy next week on SMACKDOWN. Both men grapple a little but Christian shoves Drew away and he drops over the rope. Christian leapfrogs the top rope and lands on the outside of the ring on his feet and swings a vicious uppercut at the Scottish tag team champion. Drew avoid the contact though and, as Christian rolls back in, he grabs Christian’s head and goes for the Future Shock DDT again. Christian escapes again and tries to counter into the Killswitch but Drew pushes Christian away into the ropes. As Christian heads back to Drew off the ropes, the Scot hits another Big Boot and takes Christian down. Cover from Drew McIntyre ...

As Christian gets to his feet groggy, McIntyre stalks behind him and jumps up and throws Christian down with a big neckbreaker. Drew signals that the match is over and again he sets up for the Future Shock DDT. This time, Christian looks beaten as Drew holds him in position ... However, as Drew looks to hit the move, Christian counters again and locks in the Killswitch ... Bam! Christian hits the big move and goes for the pin ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* 3 *


WINNER: Christian (7:53)


Christian advances to the Final and will have the chance next week to earn himself a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship at Survivor Series in just 9 days time. Drew McIntyre looks furious at his loss and screams in anger, kicking the ropes and bashing the mat with his fists. Cody Rhodes comes rushing to the ring past Christian and heads into the ring to calm Drew down which he starts to succeed in doing. Christian smirks as he makes his way out of the arena but as he leaves, the theme of the Number 1 contenders for the Tag Team Champions hits ...

*** LA VITTORIA E MIA ***


Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov – the men who beat the Nexus pair of David Otunga and Heath Slater on RAW – are out here as the Number 1 contenders for the Tag Team Titles of Drew and his partner, Cody Rhodes. Santino does all the talking as usual and informs the champions that they wish to cash in their shot at the titles at Survivor Series. Drew and Cody square up and it looks as if we have another Survivor Series title match set. Suddenly, Drew and Cody begin to beat down on the contenders but they fail and Santino and Kozlov get the upperhand. As Santino signals for the Cobra, Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler suddenly appear and they take out Santino and Kozlov from behind. A four on two beating begins but then Mark Henry and Evan Bourne appear to even up the numbers. With Bourne and Henry now on their side, Santino and Kozlov get back up and the foursome of Del Rio, Ziggler, Rhodes and McIntyre are forced out of the ring. Cue the entrance of Teddy Long who declares that next week on SMACKDOWN, we will have a Survivor Series warm up match when we have an eight man elimination Tag Team match between Del Rio, Ziggler, McIntyre and Rhodes against Santino, Kozlov, Evan Bourne and Mark Henry.

The camera heads backstage where Todd Grisham is ready to interview the Divas Champion, Layla. He asks her about her upcoming match with Michelle McCool at the PPV and Layla declares that she is the dominant force behind Laycool and that she is the one that will be victorious at Survivor Series. McCool interrupts and declares that Layla has been following her around for the past year and that Layla only won the title because of her in the first place. Michelle suggests that Layla will never be able to defeat her in fair circumstances and that after Survivor Series, Laycool will be no more and Layla’s Divas Championship reign will be no more. The two divas end up cat-fighting in the interview area, grabbing at each other’s hair and rolling around on the floor before several referees pull them apart with both looking ready for their Survivor Series encounter in 9 days time ...

WWE SURVIVOR SERIES

----- 1 WEEK -----

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


SMACKDOWN returns with Matt Hardy receiving handshakes and congratulations from other superstars as he heads for the locker room. As he enters the locker room, he comes face to face with his opponent in the final next week, Christian. Christian gets to his feet and they slowly shake hands. Christian tells Matt that it is good to see him back here on SMACKDOWN and that he is glad he decided to stay with the WWE. Matt thanks him and congratulates him on his victory over Drew McIntyre and says that he is looking forward to their match next week. Christian reminds Matt of their storied rivalry over the years and how they have both had to stand back and watch as their former partners and brothers moved on to the big one. Matt suggests that this is the time when one of them will win the big one – but then declares that it will be him that faces Kane at Survivor Series. Christian disagrees and informs Matt that however much he wants this shot, he wants it a little bit more. Both men stare into each other’s eyes and there is tension in the room. Suddenly, Matt Hardy is clattered from behind and we see that Kane is attacking him and Christian in the locker room. However, Matt and Christian work together to force Kane back into the wall and take him down as a pair. Christian allows Matt to hit the final move and he hits a Twist of Fate to the World Champion on the concrete floor. However, Christian then locks up Hardy and twists him up and drops Hardy down with the Killswitch as well. With Kane and Matt Hardy both laid out of the floor, Christian picks up the World Championship belt and lays it across Kane and Matt Hardy before leaving with a smile on his face ...

The cameras return to the ring where Tony Chimel announces the main event and the stipulations agreed earlier tonight. If CM Punk wins, he will be the captain of Team Smackdown. If Big Show wins, CM Punk will join Team Smackdown as the fourth member of the team.


*** THIS FIRE BURNS ***


Here comes the Straight Edge CM Punk rolling his hands together and checking his wrists before heading for the ring. He looks confident and picks up a Team SMACKDOWN t-shirt and places it over his body. Whatever the result, Punk will join the team but will he join as captain? He motions to the WWE Universe that he will become captain, that Big Show will go to sleep and he shouts out that he will then get the captain’s title shot promised to Big Show last week ...

*** CRANK IT UP ***


Big Show comes out also wearing a blue SMACKDOWN t-shirt and a huge smile as he waves to the crowd. He stops outside the ring and points to Punk, then to the SMACKDOWN logo on his shirt and smiles again. It is clear that Show is confident that he will win here but that CM Punk will then be a huge asset to the team at Survivor Series. Cole and Foley remind us of the team: Big Show, Chavo, Jack Swagger, the soon to be added CM Punk and one more man. They speculate on who that man may be but reveal that the GM has promised that the full Team SMACKDOWN will accept Edge’s invite and appear on RAW this Monday night.

BIG SHOW vs. CM PUNK
(Winner will be captain of Team SMACKDOWN at Survivor Series)


CM Punk talks trash to Big Show as they meet in the middle of the ring and is clearly telling him that he will be the SMACKDOWN team captain, not Big Show, after the main event tonight. The bell rings and the two lock up with Show swotting Punk aside with ease to the annoyance of the Straight Edge Superstar. Punk tries to respond with a Muay Thai combination of punches and kicks but again he is swotted aside and it has little effect on the SMACKDOWN captain – as it stands – as he continues to grin at Punk. Eventually, Big Show pulls back his big right hand in threat and Punk falls down and scarpers to the outside of the ring in fear. Show laughs and points to his knuckles and then to CM Punk which makes him scowl ...

The referee begins to count Punk out and he reluctantly re-enters the ring at 8. Punk tries to distract the referee before suddenly rushing over at Big Show looking to surprise him. Punk goes to hit a high knee but Show catches him by the head – his giant hand palming the top of Punk’s head like a basketball – before turning him into a reverse headlock and dropping a huge arm over his chest. Punk is down and writhing in pain and Show locks in a Cobra Clutch as Punk tries to get back up. Punk struggles to reach the ropes as he fights to his knees but he does and that forces the referee to order Big Show to break the hold. Show is unhappy and flings Punk across the ring out of the Cobra Clutch before going after him again. He kicks Punk while he is down and then climbs to the middle rope before hitting a corner splash to Punk that leaves him down and clutching his stomach in pain. Show goes for a cover ...

Show retains control though and he hits a Fall-away slam to Punk that sends Punk bouncing under the rope and out of the ring again. Show gets to his feet to loud cheers as we head into a commercial break ...


********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


As SMACKDOWN returns, Show is in trouble as Punk has taken control. Replays are shown that Punk managed to catch Show with a high knee as he attempted to go out of the ring after Punk. Punk rushes into the corner with a second high knee and then delivers a bulldog from the middle rope that just about takes down Big Show. Punk goes for a quick cover ...

As Show gets up, Punk hits the Shining Wizard knee/kick to the head of Show and it sends him spinning down to the mat. Punk senses an opportunity and goes out of the ring before slingshotting back over the top rope and into a somersault and Senton onto the chest of Big Show. He follows this with a Crooked Moonsault and then goes for another cover ...

* Again, Big Show kicks out with ease! *


Punk realises he needs something big and signals to the crowd that it is time for Big Show to ‘Go To Sleep’ ... many of the WWE Universe laugh at this idea of Punk lifting Big Show for the GTS! It doesn’t stop Punk trying but he cannot get Show off his feet and strains his back to the delight of the fans. However, Punk hits punches and kicks again that keep in him control before another big kick to the head takes Show down again. Quick as a flash, Punk drops down and locks in the Anaconda Vice instead and for the first time in the match, Big Show looks in trouble. The referee drops down beside Big Show and checks for a submission but Show tries to fight back and lifts himself to his feet with the submission move locked in. He lifts Punk as well and rams him back first into the turnbuckles forcing Punk to break the hold. However, it used a lot of Big Show’s energy and Punk hits two clotheslines to keep him struggling. A dropkick to the knee of Big Show is followed by a chop block that takes Show down again and CM Punk again goes for the Anaconda Vice in the centre of the ring. This time, Show is struggling more and CM Punk is in complete control as he wrenches the hold in tighter trying to force the tap out that would confirm him as the SMACKDOWN captain for the Survivor Series match ...

Big Show is trying to fight back but is really struggling and it’s beginning to look ominous. Show tries to roll Punk onto his shoulders and manages to ... shoulders down, pinfall ...

Big Show is looking like he is in real trouble now. He manages one last fight back against the submission hold and tries to get to his feet but fails and makes it only to one knee. Punk senses that he has Show close to tapping out and wrenches with all his might when suddenly ... Bam! Big Show finds a way to break the hold ... A knockout punch to the side of CM Punk’s face! Big Show with the cover ...

WINNER: Big Show (8:32)


Big Show is showing the effects of a tough match but the referee raises his hand as he towers over CM Punk who is laid out on the ring apron after the knock-out blow. Big Show kneels beside Punk and tries to bring him round before shouting for a bottle of water. The water is tossed in and Show tips it over Punk’s face which helps Punk come around. Big Show helps him up and raises his hand and points to the SMACKDOWN logo whilst Punk props himself up on the turnbuckles looking confused and a little annoyed ...

Cole and Foley hype up next week’s RAW by announcing again that Team SMACKDOWN will be there to accept Edge’s invite next week before they hype next week’s SMACKDOWN as well by confirming the main event: Matt Hardy vs. Christian to determine the Number 1 contender for the World Championship at SMACKDOWN. As the cameras zoom in on a delighted Big Show leaving the ring, the show fades to black ...


********** END OF SHOW **********
