Raw Feedback


Wow what a way to start the show, KOP this is what I call starting with an impact. Batista going nuts with the sledgehammer was good however, then I thought when Shane rocked up that it was just going to end. But no Batista hit Shane as well and that was golden as hopefully from now onwards we get fully blown Animal Batista heading into Summerslam. Batista getting barred from the arena kind of sucks though

CM Punk over Chavo Guerrero and I am just going to quickly get this out of the way… Please use Guerrero he is so much better then a resident jobber however, he had to lose this match because he was facing a tag champ. Punk/Kendrick over Priceless at this stage I just don’t think there has been enough build up for them to be tag champs.

Dykstra and Hardcore Holly I guess they will be meeting again some time soon, if you put Holly over Dykstra you will have to answer to me

Phoenix went over McCool in well nothing more then a squash really. I don’t know why Mickie came out if there was no physical or verbal interaction between the two seemed a bit random to me.

Okay so Matt Hardy loses the US Title because he is getting ready for the Brand Supremacy, right? This means that at Summerslam we are probably going to get Benjamin against Burke, am I right? I hope I am it would be awesome but yeah I personally would have preferred for Burke to get the win because I like him more. Besides that I have nothing to complain about.

Oh the pain, seriously UGGHHHH… The love fest between The Hardy Boyz is becoming sickening hurry up and make one of them turn on the other please. In fact I can see it happening at “The Garden”.

Kevin Thorn gets a nice debut on Raw. Lol At Santino Marella unable to buy a win at this stage it just makes me laugh. Good to see your keeping his comedy but your not giving him the IC Title like IRL.

Chris Jericho seems angry so I guess we are going to get a big time brawl next week between Orton and Jericho. I liked the way Jericho mentioned how all throughout 2007 Orton made his life living hell and I guess it is time for pay back, eh?

I liked the Chris Jericho interview but I reckon I loved the Randy Orton reply. Talking about how he is sadistic and an animal of sorts now is just a great way to get me so excited for Hell in a Cell. His transformation has been timed so well I really have to give you your props for this one, KOP.

When you told us that Raw was going to be in The Garden I just knew it was going to be a big one. That 6 man tag match that Bischoff and Foley just announced should be off the hook. I am also looking forward to how they’re going to convince RVD to sign with Raw. You really have some intriguing situations going on at this point.

Mr Kennedy gets a fairly big win over Kane as in BTB he is still a credible opponent. Anyway the exciting part of the main event came after the match when Taker pops out from nowhere and nails a Chokeslam. Quick query was there actually something at the top of the arena or was that just used as a distraction?

Vince McMahon is going to announce some things and WOW somebody is out to get Vinnie Mac. This is another interesting situation that I am sure we will hear more about in coming weeks.

Well KOP, you’re in full stride now I am really beginning to love this thread as business is picking up heading towards Summerslam. Unlike previous weeks where it has been all about the SS card you have now got some other interesting situations going as well. Can’t wait to see where you go from here, you know I will be reading.

Default Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

Without a doubt, this is the biggest feud on Smackdown, and arguably the biggest in the thread right now, tied with Orton and Jericho. Flair and Michaels, with a completely different slant than in the real world. I was hoping for a slightly better reasoning for Flair attacking Michaels, but it still works this way. Perhaps this is the beginning of a final flourish for Naitch, and a heel run works for me. Flair at his best that way.

Miz and Morrison, meh. Would’ve preferred MNM back if anything. I guess the disappointment is down to the fact that you’ve got some really good KOP original teams on Raw, and I’d rather have seen you go and put these two into different partnerships.

Umaga is back, and I’m glad Estrada is still by his side. Not too hot on the tag match at Summerslam, as it comes off as just a way to get four guys on the show, and a match that you could easily see in the first hour of a regular Smackdown. Hopefully something happens though at the event to make the match worthwhile.

Anyway, onto Porter (who owns as World Champ), and by far, MVP is the best thing going on Smackdown at the minute. Hopefully he gets a long reign as the champion, to legitimise him as a top tier star. Good win over Edge, although if I’m being picky, I’d have liked to have seen him do the work and not Big Zeke (who is a great fit as the bodyguard for MVP). Hopefully he does it himself at Summerslam.

Loving Helms crusade against the Cruiserweights. Very inventive angle, and one that someone like Helms could really flourish in. I’m interested to see how it eventually works out, but I can see the angle running for a long time to come.

The build continuing for the terrific looking four way at Summerslam is fine. As mentioned it’s been a very even build, with everyone getting one win and one loss in the last few weeks. Victory for Albright tonight, and I suspect in the coming weeks we’ll see much the same, with all four gaining another win, and another loss before the PPV.

Potential bodyguard or valet (Nidia?) for Noble?? That should at least mean that Jamie will be a regular on the show, and that can only be a good thing.

The Prototype?? Wasn’t that John Cenas gimmick in OVW?? Not sure I like someone else using it, but I’ll wait and see where you go with it first, and who exactly it is that takes the role.

Strange ending indeed. Zero hostility between Matt & Jeff for Summerslam has me worried, as I’m getting visions of the highly disappointing Vengeance ‘01 meeting between the two, when there was little to get into, or get behind. Besides that, the build is becoming more intriguing, as JBL looks intent on punishing Jeff, despite needing him to win for him at Summerslam. I could see Jeff losing, which could mean a JBL - Jeff feud, with JBL blaming Jeff for losing ‘on purpose’.

I guess I'm playing catch up again with Raw up now... I'll get to it eventually

Friday Night Smackdown – August 10, 2007
Chevrolet Centre – Youngstown, Ohio


Smackdown kicked off with MVP introducing us to the first week of the MVP’s Tour of Greatness. The World Heavyweight Champion basically explained the Tour of Greatness as a tour that will “continue on for many years to come” in that he (MVP) will compete and of course win his matches. MVP says this is not all though because with victory comes reward and MVP says that his agent has told him that for every match that he wins for now until and he emphasizes the word (if) he loses the title, he will earn a bonus for each and every match! MVP says that he’s going to be just like some of the big names in professional sports. He says he’ll perform, earn the money he rightfully deserves, and come out on top every single time! MVP says with Big ‘Zeke backing him, a bonus per every win, and the gold around his shoulder, there is literally nobody stopping him from winning and retaining his title every time. MVP says that he’s going to go ahead and kick off the tour in style now and he challenges a “local superstar” to take him on.

MVP def. “A Local Superstar” rather easily with the Playmaker finishing off the local superstar whose name wasn’t even caught. That is how quick the champion disposed of the local wrestler. MVP wasted no time after the match reminding the fans that he’s already got one bonus and for the next few months he may be raking in the “dough”. MVP continued rambling on for a bit before the former champion Edge came charging down the ramp. Edge looked ready to spear MVP down but Big ‘Zeke got in the way and guarded MVP. MVP hid behind his bodyguard taunting Edge as Edge stared down the World-Heavyweight Champion. Ezekiel Jackson dared Edge to do something about it as MVP yells “You want to get punched again” referring to Ezekiel punching Edge right in the face knocking him out two weeks ago on Smackdown. We head to a commercial after MVP and Ezekiel back their way up the ramp with Edge in the ring looking at the champ back his way up.

John Morrison and The Miz made their official tag team debut next as they teamed together and successfully defeated the duo of Shannon Moore and Jimmy Wang Yang. It was not to be without the help though of Gregory Helms as the former Cruiserweight Champion continued his tirade against the Cruiserweights as Helms came down tripping up Yang which distracted Moore and allowed Morrison to capitalize and hit the Moonlight Drive! Morrison and Miz celebrated their victory as if nothing had happened but they knew Helms had interfered. Yang helped his tag partner Moore back onto his feet as Gregory Helms sat at the top of the ramp laughing at “getting another one over” on the Cruiserweights.

Christian caught up with JBL backstage and met with his former “friend” and his boss. The General Manager wanted to talk to Christian about a few things and give him some thoughts. Christian wanted nothing to do with it though and blamed this all (his brother Edge having lost the title, JBL turning his back on Edge and Christian, etc.) JBL and Christian both got into a shouting argument and Christian looked ready to put his hands on JBL and give him a peace of his mind but it was Finlay that struck Christian quickly from behind in the leg with the shillelagh! JBL looked up at Finlay thanking him for taking out Christian and then tells Finlay that “if he gets the job done” at SummerSlam, he’ll have a World title shot in no time!

Shawn Michaels was interviewed backstage concerning his thoughts on Ric Flair’s reasoning for the ambush a few months back and HBK stated that it was rather ridiculous and that Flair is just making a cover up. HBK says if Flair wanted a match, if he wanted to see who was the better man that it wasn’t necessary to do it this way. Michaels says that he gladly would have accepted a match between the two “former” friends. But Michaels says that Flair crossed a line that only a few select people have in HBK’s career and that he’s pushed Michaels over the edge. Michaels tells Flair that if he’s “looking for a fight” and that he “thinks he’s still got it in him” then bring it to SummerSlam because the Heart Break Kid is not going to hold back anything.

We had a big six man tag match next as Kofi Kingston and the WWE Tag Team Champions Jesse and Festus all teamed together to take on Chris Masters, Jamie Noble, and Test. Yes it was pretty much a random tag match but it mainly was to focus on a small mid-card feud between Kingston and Masters that has been bubbling recently. (Trust me, in the near future it may make sense just why some of these guys were in this match.) But anyways the team of Masters, Noble, and Test all pulled out the big victory after Kofi Kingston got caught on the top rope and Test shoved Kingston off allowing Kingston to come crashing down onto the mat. Masters wasted no time locking in the MasterLock as Test and Noble both knocked Festus and Jesse out of the ring respectively. Kingston quickly passed out giving the victory to the heel trio.

After the previous match, Jamie Noble “meets up” with the mystery person once again. This week Noble is on the cell phone though as last week he talked to “this person” behind closed doors. Noble says that without a doubt he’s considering the offer as it could definitely make him a future star here in the WWE. Noble said he needs some more time to think about it but he’ll definitely get back with them as soon as possible. Noble hangs up the phone looking at it as the fans seem confused but want to know who Noble’s been talking to.

We get a big tag team match next as Paul London teams together with the Intercontinental Champion Brent Albright to take on of course Carlito and Charlie Haas. All four men own a victory and a loss against one another over the past few weeks and this week it was London that picked up the mega win earning another victory after he hit a big 450 Splash on Haas to get the victory. London and Albright both celebrated their victory but the celebration didn’t last long as London made it clear that since he’s “broke out on his own” that he’s ready to earn the title. Albright nodded towards London as London exited the ring as we went to a commercial.

The same video from last week hyping “The Prototype” coming to Smackdown was shown. The video scanned through showing a whole lot of numbers and letters before arranging to form the words “The Prototype” and shortly afterwards it closed with “Coming to Smackdown”

Jeff Hardy is backstage as he was being interviewed concerning the re-uniting of the Hardy’s this Monday on Raw at Madison Square Garden for one big tag match against the Gold Standards and Hardy didn’t have long to speak as the General Manager JBL interrupted him. JBL asked Hardy just what he was thinking about going to Raw this past week AGAIN especially after the beat down he got last week from Finlay and JBL himself. Jeff Hardy laughs it off but JBL doesn’t find it too funny at all. JBL says that he’s been disobeyed for two weeks in a row and that he’s not going to have a superstar just disrespect him like that. JBL says that since “last week’s punishment” was not enough that he’s going to have to lay down the law now. First off Jeff Hardy WILL NOT wrestle this Monday at Raw and if he does he will be fined with no pay. Secondly, since Jeff has disobeyed his GM’s orders for two weeks in a row he will be in action next week in a Handicap Match against Finlay and JBL! And finally JBL lays down an ultimatum for Jeff Hardy that if he does not win come SummerSlam that he will be suspended from Smackdown indefinitely. JBL says he’s tired of playing games with Hardy and that he cannot afford to lose his job come SummerSlam because of Hardy’s carelessness.

A sit down interview previously taped earlier in the week with Michael Cole asking Ric Flair many questions was shown next. Michael Cole hit Flair hard with some questions trying to get to the basis of why Flair did what he did. Flair made it clear to Cole that he knew all along that he was being used by everyone around him. Flair said when he was in Evolution his sole purpose was to protect Hunter and keep everyone away from his title. Flair relates this to Shawn Michaels next as HBK wanted to get the World Heavyweight title but he had Flair having to help him all along. Flair said just like he did last week that he knew he still had it in him and that he wasn’t going to hold himself back because of certain people wanting him to do so. Michael Cole asks Flair why couldn’t he just have wrestled Michaels in a friendly competition like HBK mentioned earlier in the night but Flair stopped him there. Flair said that nothing with Shawn Michaels can be friendly at all. He reminds Cole of Judgment Day where he “accidentally” got kicked by Shawn Michaels with the Sweet Chin Music which Flair said was not an “accident.” Flair said that he’s let Michaels have enough chances and that it’s one too many. The Nature Boy says that the fans are looking at pretty much the same Nature Boy that was in his prime just a few years ago. Flair then mentions that he might not be twenty years younger but he sure as hell does feel like it and he’s still got something special left in him. Flair says he’s back to not giving a crap of what the fans think of him or mainly what his fellow superstars think because after all he’s the Nature Boy…he can do whatever he pleases! With that Flair gets up and leaves the set.

A video hyping Rob Van Dam’s decision at SummerSlam as to which brand he is going to choose plays followed by another hype video for SummerSlam.

The main event is next as the Big Show goes one on one with the Samoan Bulldozer Umaga in what turns out to be a decent main event. Finlay was at ringside scouting the Big Show as these two have a big tag team match at SummerSlam in a few weeks against Show and Christian. Of course Christian found a way to “fight back” from the attack earlier as he limped down to the ring a little bit selling the fact he was struck by a shillelagh in the leg but Christian jumped Finlay as the two brawled around the ring for a while. This allowed Armando Estrada to have time to slide a chair into the ring after Umaga had tried to take down Big Show but failed several times. Umaga quickly grabbed the chair going to swing it at Umaga but Umaga missed and Big Show quickly knocked the chair out of the hand of Umaga! Finlay on the outside had gotten the best of Christian as he sucker punched Christian before sliding into the ring and chop blocking Big Show down onto one knee forcing the ref to ring up the match as a DQ win for Big Show. Umaga and Finlay both did a beat down on Big Show before Christian grabbed the steel chair in the ring and slid in threatening to swing it at Umaga and Finlay but the two heels ditched the ring. Christian helped Big Show back onto his feet as Christian and the World’s Largest Athlete both stood in the ring as Smackdown came to an end.

Quick Results:

MVP def. A Local Superstar in MVP’s Tour of Greatness
John Morrison and The Miz def. Jimmy Wang Yang and Shannon Moore
Chris Masters, Jamie Noble, and Test def. Kofi Kingston and WWE Tag Team Champions Jesse and Festus
Paul London and Intercontinental Champion Brent Albright def. Carlito and Charlie Haas

Default Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

WWE Monday Night Raw

Alright, off the bat, I’m loving Raw. Finally seems like the Triple H / Batista feud has hit top gear, and Batista using the trademark weapon of Triple H to send a message through Shane … P-E-R-S-O-N-A-L. This thing just kicked up a level, but you need to keep it cooking, and Triple H needs to come after The Animal in a big way next week to keep the feud simmering. I’d guess with Shane being the victim tonight, this could potentially lead to Shane vs. Batista in a few months down the road. That could be special when it comes to pass.

Hmm, title shot for Priceless next week in MSG. It does sound like it’d fit for the titles to change hands, but I hope they don’t. I made that point last week, so I’ll not harp on, but I’m hoping that the alluding to a title change is just a smokescreen. The champs retaining would work better too, as Priceless could use that to get really frustrated, having their ‘destiny’ taken away from them.

I guess that the Dykstra / Cryme Tyme angle has been dropped, with Kenny focusing on Holly instead?? That could be for the best. Dykstra could well build his credibility by taking a couple more wins from the veteran instead.

Cant wait for Mickie and Beth at Summerslam. Didn’t care for the squash, but it does show the dominance of Beth at her best. If that one gets enough time, it’ll go down as one of the great womens matches in WWE history.

WHOA!!! DID NOT see the title switch coming. Shelton Benjamin truly is ‘The Gold Standard’, but I hope this win doesn’t mark the end of the Gold Standard tag team. I’d settle for a friendly rivalry over the title, but ultimately they’re too awesome to split so soon. Shocked to see Matt Hardy beaten though, as he doesn’t appear to be getting much luck running up to his big Summerslam match. Odd.

The segment with the Hardys has me thinking Matt just might turn on his brother next week on Raw. He’s lost a couple of matches in a row, and he’s lost his title … he might just snap imo, which could help the final push toward Summerslam.

Surprised to see you bringing in new faces to Raw, especially with the rosters currently loaded with a lot of bodies. Kevin Thorn is okay, but he needs the sexy Ariel by his side to be deemed interesting . Another loss for Marella, and I suspect he’ll keep this run going for a long, long time, with plenty of comedy sprinkled in along the way.

Great intensity from Jericho, who can pull that side of his character off brilliantly. I guess there will be hell to pay for the Punt last week too. As for the guest on the Highlight Reel next week?? Why not Bob Orton, just to make things interesting.

Six man tag next week looks epic, hopefully though there is a winner, and not the cop out of a no contest or a DQ

Decent win for Kennedy, over the glorified jobber, and it makes sense for Kennedy to face Kane here, and even more sense to go over. He’s on the way up, Kane is on the way down, he’s got a big match at Summerslam, Kane hasn’t. Despite Takers attack after the match, Kennedy is surely going to have the last laugh at Summer slam … and so he should. He’s set to be the next big star in the thread, and a win over Taker would be priceless. Not many will be able to say they’ve beaten Cena and Taker on consecutive PPV events.

Heh, someone just tried to wipe out Vince?? It’d be too obvious to be Batista. I’m gonna say it’s whoever was REALLY behind what went down with The Undertaker. I’d dare say if that is the case, whoever it is could well take out one or two others before the reveal finally comes to pass. If that’s the case, you’ve got a white hot angle on your hands.

Feels like we’re in for a terrific show from MSG next week, with three big matches, Highlight Reel and Vinces big announcement. ‘Must See’ springs to mind.

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

Friday Night Smackdown

I hope this isn’t what we get for M.V.P’s tour of greatness every week, otherwise it’ll be a tour of mediocrity. I love the idea, but in delivery, at the very least he should be facing local legends to make it seem like a worthy weekly addition. Otherwise, what’s the point of your champion beating jobbers every week??

Porter still hiding behind Zeke, surely at some point, Edge will get his hands on him?? Seems like Big Zeke will have a big future in the thread once he leaves MVP’s side, as he’s being built as a real force so far.

Winning start for M&M, what was to be expected tbh, and good to see the Helms angle intertwined with this, as he continues to try and wipe out the cruiserweight division. Who will be the man to step up and take on Helms??

Not into the tag team feud at all really, but it’s good to see the union between JBL and Finlay. Christian just seems to be treading water in the thread. He’s not a main eventer, but he’s not a mid carder. Seems to be stuck in some kind of purgatory, going neither up or down.

Makes sense for Michaels to air his views on Flair, and I suspect the match at Summerslam will just be the beginning of a long running rivalry between the two legends. Hopefully that’s the case. Looks like HBK has had a fire lit under him though, and it’ll be great to see an incensed Michaels @ Summerslam.

For now, not much to go on, but as you said, the reasons for this match will become clear in the near future. Kingston vs. Masters doesn’t really capture the imagination or the attention like other feuds, but who knows, if it is built nicely, it could well elevate one, or possibly at a stretch, both men.

See my comments from last week on the Noble situation.

The even Steven build continues for the I.C Title picture, as this week, London pins Haas. I’m a fan of this build, but ultimately, it’s solid at best, but by the numbers build for what promises to be an awesome match at Summerslam for the title.

Again, see my comments from last week on the Prototype situation.

Layfield aint messing with Jeff at all. He’s barred from Raw, AND faces a handicap match next week. Not sure how much sense it makes for JBL to threaten to suspend Jeff if he loses at Summerslam, since if that happens, JBL is gone, and the new GM could easily lift the suspension. Turning into a very rocky road to ‘Slam for the Hardy Boys, but a very interesting one. Hopefully the end result ties all this carnage together in a neat little package. Just don’t know how to call this one.

I cant tell you how much I loved the Flair sit down interview. You need to do more of this kind of thing, and the Batista stuff on Raw, as you pull it off really well. Glad to see Flair acknowledging he was used by Triple H, as that may well plant the seeds for a possible feud between the two somewhere down the road. Again, please do more of this kind of thing to sell the feuds, as it … works.

Don’t see RVD choosing Raw @ MSG, but I’m absolutely clueless as to where he fits in on either brand. It’s good that you’re making a big deal of it though, as it’ll make Van Dam seem really important, and instantly a main attraction.

By the numbers main event, and the DQ finish was disappointing, but made sense to happen. I’d rather have seen a result of some sort though, even through some kind of convoluted finish. Little surprised this ended the show, as the feud has been put across as filler for the last few weeks, whilst one of the main angles was brushed off in the opening segment of the show.

Smackdown Feedback


Nice MVP promo to start off basically just giving us his usual money speech. I love the twist where for every win he gets a bonus LOL I guess this means he is just going to get more and more BALLIN… If that is possible. MVP gets the easy win and Edge doesn’t have a crack at Big Zeke. I don’t care how big, Big Zeke is you just bitched out your number one contender. If MVP loses to Edge all hell will break lose because I will e riot. Anyway good way to start but don’t make MVP to much screen time it may get sickening to some readers. Not me though I love him

John Morrison and The Miz on there debut should not have to get a dirty win over Yang and Moore. They could do so much better then that. As for Helms he is going to get what is coming to him eventually. But yeah Morrison and Miz need a better showing next week other wise you have just about ruined them.

Christian and JBL arguing is the making of their feud that everyone knows will eventually happen. As for Finlay well he is just a brutal heel, I love the way you use him to butcher all the faces

Michaels going extra intense to fight with Flair will be fun. These two going at it will be great because it will be more personal and will show a different side to what we saw IRL at Mania.

Until it makes sense as to why the tag match took place I really have nothing to comment on actually I will say Masters over Kingston any day.

Jamie Noble has me interested. I like Noble I think a push would do him well.

Another nice match up involving the IC Title participants. What’s with all the London love going around the forum at the moment I am not a huge fan tbh. Hopefully you let Albright eventually pick him apart.

Who is prototype??? Lol I hope its not an obvious answer

I really don’t understand what JBL is doing? He does not want to lose his job so he punishes the person who has to win to keep it for me. I know Hardy is a face and all that but it just doesn’t seem to fit my liking. I feel like I need some clarification on what is going on.

WOOOOOOOOOOO~!!!! Heel Flair is pretty cool and he is going well. I am expecting big things from the man, big things such as him defeating Shawn Michaels. Probably wont happen but would be extremely EPIC if it did

RVD decision time is a must see for me

Did not really enjoy the main event. First off Show is UGGGHHH!!! Second off the two men on the outside would have just annoyed me a little bit I don’t know I just really did not find this main event exciting.

Smackdown was not one of your best tbh every show has had me excited for what’s next except for this one. I just know you can do better this show was just shockingly lower standards then your usual stuff as I struggled to read it. Hit back hard with next one mate.

WWE Monday Night Raw – August 13, 2007
Madison Square Garden – New York, New York


Raw kicked off with the Chairman of the Board, Mr. McMahon standing in the ring already. Mr. McMahon had all of the Raw superstars at ringside as he stated that he has many things to address and first off he starts with Batista going crazy last week attacking the vehicle of Triple H with a sledgehammer and then taking out Shane McMahon with it as well. Mr. McMahon said that will not be tolerated and that he will not have ANY superstar putting a hand on a McMahon. Mr. McMahon updates us on the condition of his son stating that Shane is still in the hospital and doing okay but he wishes his son never would have had to go through this. Mr. McMahon then tells us that his son will make a speedy recovery soon. Mr. McMahon says he is not going to punish Batista at least tonight because Mr. McMahon is trusting his son-in-law Triple H to “punish” Batista this Sunday at Raw in the best way he knows that he can which is take the WWE title from the Animal! Mr. McMahon then speaks to the Raw co-General Managers Eric Bischoff and Mick Foley as Mr. McMahon informs Bischoff that this could be his last night here on Raw and that Foley might be the only one in charge next week if Jeff Hardy beats his brother Matt at SummerSlam! Mr. McMahon then mentions that he’s confident Foley’s got control of the show if Matt doesn’t win but Mr. McMahon does say that regardless of which GM gets fired, he’ll be on that show to announce an replacement immediately! Mr. McMahon then closed it out with a direct address to the superstars of Raw that he is going to find out who tried to run him over and when he does, he promises there will be hell to pay. Mr. McMahon states that he feels he has a prime candidate for whom it could be and he thinks he knows but if he finds out who it is, they will be FIRED on the spot! Mr. McMahon dismisses all of the Raw superstars as they make their way to the back. Suddenly the lights go out as all of the Raw superstars are already back into their locker rooms and when they come back on, Mr. McMahon is down in the ring with a steel pipe laid beside his body!

The Hardy’s team together in the first match to kick off the night as they take on the new United States Champion in Shelton Benjamin and his tag partner Elijah Burke. The Hardy’s work rather well together but halfway through the match we got a special visit from Smackdown’s General Manager JBL! JBL comes down to the ring distracting Jeff which allowed Burke to knock Jeff off of the ropes. JBL yells at Matt Hardy now to come to the outside and “Do it!” as Matt Hardy looks on confused! Matt comes out and shoves the Smackdown GM as JBL falls back a bit! Jeff is back onto his feet now as Matt tries to help Jeff regain his composure. JBL gets into the face of Matt Hardy and Matt swings at the Smackdown GM but JBL wisely ducks and Matt strikes his brother Jeff! Jeff falls down onto the outside before Shelton Benjamin ambushes Matt Hardy before rolling Jeff into the ring which allows Elijah Burke to quickly hit the Elijah Experience for the victory. Matt rolls into the ring after the Gold Standards celebrate their win on the outside as Matt is checking on his brother. Matt helps Jeff back onto his feet but Jeff gives a shove to Matt! Jeff thinks Matt intentionally punched him and the two brothers get into it! Both get to arguing and shoving as we see the Smackdown GM John Bradshaw Layfield on the outside laughing as he’s watched these two brothers “break down” tonight. Security had to come separate the two brothers from one another as it could have been worse but security makes sure nothing else occurs.

We’re sent backstage after the commercial break to see the World Tag Team Champions CM Punk and Brian Kendrick talking. Punk and Kendrick talk about how they’ve gelled well together as a team despite having only been together for four months. Punk says he never would have thought that he would have teamed with Brian Kendrick but he says that absolutely make a formidable team. Punk was about to continue on before Priceless walked into the scene interrupting the champions. DiBiase and Rhodes say that tonight they will wrestle their first ever matches in the famous Madison Square Garden, the arena their dads have helped sell out before! DiBiase and Rhodes remind Punk and Kendrick that they may be new around here but that doesn’t stop them from being a legitimate threat to the titles. Rhodes then cockily tells the tag champs “to take note” tonight and see how it’s done in tag team wrestling.

Priceless, in their MSG debuts, take on Brooklyn natives Cryme Tyme and it was Priceless that snuck away with the victory after DiBiase caught JTG with the Dream Crusher. Priceless had dominated most of the match but Cryme Tyme fought back towards the end but it just wasn’t enough as the “young guns” of DiBiase and Rhodes snuck out the victories. Priceless made one more stake to their claim that they deserve to be champions and getting a victory over Cryme Tyme certainly helped them big time.

WWE Champion Batista was interviewed backstage concerning the attack earlier of Mr. McMahon and if he has anything to do with what has been occurring to the CEO recently? Batista denies all claims that he has anything to do with it and the only reason he said he took Shane out last week was because of the fact that Shane was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Batista says he has nothing against the McMahon’s and that he’s too smart to risk not only his title but his job by going after the CEO of the company. Batista then turns his attention to the big tag match later on tonight stating that he’s got five other men he’s got to keep his eyes on throughout the entire match as he doesn’t know if he can even trust his own teammates in Mr. Kennedy and Orton. Batista then closes it out with stating that “if he meets Hunter in the match, we’ll get Sunday a little bit early”

In the third match of the night, Kenny Dykstra meets Hardcore Holly in another match after their match two weeks ago. Nothing much to say about this match other than Kelly Kelly does NOT interfere here as Dykstra proves himself in that he doesn’t need help to win a match as he slipped off the shoulders of Holly as Holly had the match almost closed with the Alabama Slam before Dykstra rolled Holly up but only got the two count. Dykstra quickly dropped Holly with a DDT before taking to the ropes and striking Holly with the Diving Leg Drop for the victory. Dykstra and his girlfriend Kelly Kelly paraded around ringside to boos as Dykstra continues to push his way up the ladder.

Chris Jericho hosts the Highlight Reel next and surprisingly his guest turns out to be the father of his opponent this Sunday at SummerSlam “Cowboy” Bob Orton. Jericho interviews Cowboy Bob concerning his son and asking has Randy always been “like this” referring to the sadistic side of Orton that has been shining through these past few weeks. Cowboy Bob says Randy hasn’t always been like this but he thinks that there is definitely something wrong with Randy now. Cowboy Bob apologizes on the behalf of the entire Orton family for Orton punting Jericho in the head two weeks ago but Jericho says it’s okay. Jericho says he’s not looking for sympathy as he only wants to knock Bob’s son’s lights out. Jericho speaks a lot of what he talked about last week talking about how 2007 has been a year from hell (no pun intended) and that it’s all been thanks to Randy. Jericho was about to continue on before Randy came down to the ring. Randy got in asking his dad why he thinks he’s a “changed person” and Cowboy Bob simply tells Randy that he’s seen something inside of Randy that he’s never seen before. He’s never seen that look on his son’s face and as his dad; quite frankly he’s embarrassed! Randy looks like he’s going to snap as he’s hearing this from his own dad and the fans are eating this up. Orton looks at Jericho as if he’s about to say something but suddenly RANDY DROPS HIS DAD WITH AN RKO! The fans look on confused as Randy looks at his dad! Randy lines up as if he is about to run and punt his dad in the head but Jericho jumps in front of Randy! Randy stops as Jericho tends to the fallen Cowboy Bob. Randy yells at Jericho that “the hell on earth continues tonight” referring to the main event later on.

Backstage we see the arrival of free agent Rob Van Dam in a limo. Raw co-GM Eric Bischoff greets RVD and tells RVD that they’ll be going to his office to discuss contract matters and that he just needs to follow Bischoff this way. The commentators hype the fact that Bischoff will try his best later on to secure a contract for RVD with only six days to go before SummerSlam.

The divas have a big match next as the Women’s Champion Mickie James is in action this week as she goes one on one with Melina. Mickie and Melina wrestle a rather decent match but it was the Women’s Champion Mickie that picked up the victory via Mick DDT. The victory gave Mickie momentum heading into SummerSlam or so we thought? The never ending feud it seems took a different toll whenever the Glamazon Beth Phoenix blindsided Mickie before dropping the champ with a Glam Slam! The fans booed the Glamazon as she looks to retain the title she lost at the Great American Bash come SummerSlam.

A short match ensues after the next commercial break which sees Santino Marella making his MSG debut as he goes one on one with William Regal. Regal almost got defeated by Santino who’s lost about four matches or so in a row and seems to be on a bit of a losing streak. The feisty Italian suffered the defeat after Regal struck Santino with a hard right before hitting the Running Knee to pin Santino. After the match Santino stood up trying to regain his composure and it seems that every lose he suffers, he gets angrier each week as this week he yelled at a fan that was laughing at his misfortunes as of recent.


Backstage we’re sent to the office of Mick Foley and Eric Bischoff as they are discussing matters with Rob Van Dam concerning this Sunday at SummerSlam. RVD tells both men that he appreciates their offer but he doesn’t want to just release what brand he is signing to just yet. He promises though that since he’s been on both brands before he wants to think of what is going to be best for him and where he’ll see the most competition at. RVD says there is no doubt that he wants to get another shot at heading towards the World Heavyweight or WWE title again but he doesn’t know how easy that will be. RVD once again thanks Foley and Bischoff as he leaves the office with Bischoff looking rather disappointed they couldn’t come to a contract agreement tonight.

The huge six man tag match concludes the night as the team of the WWE champion Batista, Mr. Kennedy, and Randy Orton all team together to take on another all-star trio of Triple H, Chris Jericho, and the Undertaker. Without a doubt it’s one of the biggest matches in recent Raw history and certainly a big main event but it’s a big night here at the Garden. All six men got their share of action during the match but the ending started to break down whenever Kennedy was the legal man in the ring. Kennedy ran in attacking Triple H after Triple H had just tagged in but Kennedy pretty much took a mega beat down from the number one contender! Triple H pushes Kennedy into the corner completely oblivious to the fact that Kennedy was tagged by the champion Batista! Triple H was going to hit Kennedy with a Pedigree but Batista blindsided Triple H from behind with a clothesline. Chris Jericho and Randy Orton both were about to make their way into the ring but Orton blindsided Jericho as those two rolled around the outside of the ring brawling. Batista hit the Game shortly after with the Batista Bomb covering to get the victory after Mr. Kennedy held the Undertaker back on the outside from interference! The WWE Champion pinned the number one contender with only six nights to go ‘til SummerSlam and Raw came to an end with Batista looking over Triple H, Kennedy leaving the ring from his opponent at SS in ‘Taker, and Orton and Jericho out of control as they brawled throughout the arena!

Ok, so here's the deal. I had just noticed about a week or so that I had SummerSlam set for August 26th. Well the thing was that I had made plans only up until the August 13th Raw and the August 17th Smackdown meaning that I did not have anything planned for the next Raw and Smackdown that would lead into SummerSlam. SO...instead of having to re-do plans and all of that I'm going to just make SummerSlam this Sunday the 19th. I hate to do it but I mean it's my fault for noticing that this late. I know that when I've posted the card it's said the 26th but I really meant to have it on the 19th. It's nothing big as it's just a week early but that will clarify for everybody that will be wondering why it's posted a week early

Default Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

WWE Monday Night Raw – August 13, 2007
Madison Square Garden – New York, New York

So, suddenly, this becomes the go-home show leading to Summerslam.

Another whodunnit angle appears to be brewing. I’m a fan of these, as long as the pay off is right, and the angle takes on it’s own identity, and doesn’t just rehash old angles like this. Hopefully you do something to make this stand out from the crowd. Seems like you’ve ran a few of these though lately (I’m counting the HBK - Flair one too, along with the on-going Taker saga) it could end up being overkill.

Who is behind this attack on Vince will need to be a big name, and someone with a heck of a lot of guts, trying to take out the boss.

Yawn. Very flat angle for the Hardys to work with here, with the ‘unintentional’ punch from Matt sparking a fight between them. This might’ve worked slightly better had they mixed up a couple of times in the weeks running up to this, and finally break out into a brawl. Huge disappointment for me. As far as I see it, this angle is a missed opportunity. Shame, as it had a huge potential for greatness. Maybe you’ll prove me wrong and do some sensational on Smackdown or Summerslam, but I just cant see it now.

The feud over the tag titles appears to be building slowly, and Priceless winning their first ever match at MSG felt like a really good moment to savour, and the beginning of something great. Thus far, they’ve been utilised well, but despite that, I’d prefer to see the champs get a fair crack with the title belts.

I think Batista would be too obvious a candidate for the McMahon attacks. Given what he did to Shane last week, he’s more of a ‘I’ll do it to your face’ kinda guy. Not sure why he cant trust his own team mates, as there doesn’t seem to be any issues between him and Kennedy & Orton, but perhaps something went down in the time I missed.

Dykstra certainly appears to be someone that’s on the cusp of greatness on Raw, especially with a clean win tonight. Okay, it was only Hardcore Holly, but it’s a decent starting point. One of the things you do better than most is using guys that most others discard, and it looks like Dykstra could be one of those in the near future.

Whoa, Orton appears to be some sort of demented beast right now. I’ll skip over the Jericho only taking two weeks to recover from the punt (as I covered that last week), but I thought the Highlight Reel proved to be a decent piece of business all around, with Orton going as far as taking out his own Dad. Could do with an explanation though as to why he’d attack his Dad.

By the numbers -but solid- build for Beth and Mickie going into Summerslam, with the Glamazon doing a bit of a number on the champion. Really looking forward to seeing those two settle the score at Summerslam.

Losing streak continues for Santino it seems. Comedy plz.

Again, this feels like another angle that could’ve developed into so much more. Why not have a top heel from each brand try and force RVD onto their show in the last few weeks to make the decision feel like something important, rather than just another part of the show. Doing that would’ve gave RVD a ready made feud on either brand, and made his decision an intriguing part of the PPV.

Strong main event to close proceedings, and the finish was hugely surprising, and sets things up for Summerslam perfectly. Batista beating The Game came as a huge shock, as I expected a big no contest finish, or a cheap finish at most, but Batista beat The Game cleanly (blind tag isn’t cheating), which shocked me big time. Does that make the outcome for Summer slam a cert though?? Hard to call, could be the big old double bluff.

To be honest, after reading the shows these last number of weeks, I feel I‘d be doing you a dis-service if I didn’t say it, but I‘m beginning to get the feeling that there is little inspiration behind them. I don’t know whether that is the case, but when I’ve been reading some of the shows, and some of the angles going on, I’m sometimes asking myself if this is the same KOP. I hope you’re just going through a blip, and you come out of the other side quickly, but if you’re just writing the shows for the sake of writing them, you’d be better off taking a month or so to recharge the batteries and rethink where the thread is going.

I don’t want to sound like an ass with that, but I know what you are capable of, and it’s better than the okay/decent/average shows you’ve been churning out as of late.

Raw Feedback


The big man on campus Vince McMahon is in the house, seriously nice way to start the show. McMahon was very tame by the sounds of things, and perhaps a little out of character, I mean would he really just leave it to Triple H to deal with… I don’t think so. Teasing Bischoff a little bit is just what I would expect from a face Vinnie Mac. I get the picture that he is face but I am not 100 percent. He is face right? McMahon then mentioning the person who attacked him is good but wouldn’t that be what was first on his agenda I mean he is a little conceited at times. Anyway great ending with the lights going out and being attacked adding a little bit of mystery to the thread and that could be exactly what it needs to spice things back up.

Nice match up to begin the show between four superstars who actually know what they are doing in the ring. JBL making an appearance was nice and I officially love him for the night because he pretty much caused what I have been asking for, for weeks. Some tension resulting to some violence is nice hopefully things get even more heated on Smackdown. Nice credible win for Benjamin and Burke also which is something I am happy with as I am quite the Burke fan

Filler interview here really nothing much to say it was just an obvious way to gain some heat between the tag champs and Priceless before Priceless win their first match at Madison Square Garden.

Priceless were always going to go over Cryme Tyme… seriously I don’t think it was ever in doubt especially since they are pretty much already building a feud with the tag champs. It could be something big if done properly just take your time I guess and don’t rush into anything. I wonder if the tag champs were taking notes… Also do Punk and Kendrick have an official team name because I think it is about time they get one

Batista interview was good to get his perspective on the McMahon thing usually with these things the number one suspect is not the person who did it so I would be a bit disappointed if Batista did do it. Tag match should be a good main event for the night however Batista’s last line that you put emphasis on by writing in “full” was not really that great

Kenny defeats Hardcore Holly again which was to be expected and I hope this is it between these two because Kenny and Kelly are better then Holly and could be destined for big things some time soon. Mid card title reign in a month or two, imo. If you keep him around jobbers like Holly for to long he will lose value and become boring.

The Highlight Reel would have been an interesting segment and when Cowboy Bob was the guest I thought straight away you were going to revisit 05 and have him help out Orton. This is something that I would not have liked so I am glad that it did not happen. Orton dropping his dad with an RKO was totally unexpected but I think ti would have got a massive pop from the crowd LOL. Jericho standing in the way and Orton not having a crack was a bit bitchy to be honest especially when Orton was already fired up.

I could just imagine Bischoff sucking up to RVD to try and get him on Raw. Hopefully where ever RVD signs he makes a huge impact.

Mickie James with a nice win over Melina to as you said gain momentum. Beth Phoenix generic attack afterwards nothing to exciting to be honest but I guess at least it gets them both on the show.

William Regal gets the win over Santino but this match was really all about Santino and I guess the heel turn will happen soon.

RVD turning down Raw is something I expected as thinking back he was on Raw for so long he should go to Smackdown and get some what of a change of scenery. Poor Bischoff to be honest but I hope he does not get sacked

Epic six man tag main event. Batista getting the win was the right move keeping Triple H as the ultimate under dog even though he shall pick up the win at Summerslam. The brawling afterwards between Orton and Jericho was quite nice and made for some good last minute build up before Summerslam.

Overall I don’t think this Raw was that bad but I have to agree with what Wolfy said it is still far from your best. Hopefully Smackdown is a decent effort and Summerslam could still be a very hot PPV.

Friday Night Smackdown – August 17, 2007
Mohegan Sun Arena – Uncasville, Connecticut


Smackdown started off tonight with Smackdown GM JBL in the ring in his ring gear. JBL has Finlay by his side as he is also in ring gear. JBL goes on a rampant speech about how he warned Jeff Hardy not to show up at Raw and that is why JBL himself showed up at Raw, so he could do something about Jeff showing up. And JBL said he did do something about it! He had Matt “accidentally” punch Jeff but JBL tells Jeff that it wasn’t an accidental punch. JBL tries to persuade Jeff that his brother Matt punched him on purpose. But JBL says that doesn’t matter right now because Jeff has already been suspended with no pay for this week, he’s got a Handicap Match against Finlay and JBL, and that he’s only got two days to get ready for the biggest match of his career at SummerSlam! And JBL says that he hopes the fact that he’s pushed Jeff to the extreme (no pun intended) literally will make Jeff wake up come SummerSlam and go out there and win the match! Jeff interrupts trying to tell JBL that Matt punching him was an accident and that they can mend up their differences but JBL stops Jeff there. JBL says he doesn’t’ care what Jeff has to say about it. JBL says that since it looks like Jeff is ready for action, we can go ahead and start this match now!

Smackdown took a quick commercial break before coming back as the Handicap Match with Jeff Hardy taking on Finlay and JBL commenced. Finlay and JBL had to tag back in but their frequent tags made a difference on Hardy as it seemed like he wasn’t going to be able to fight back and win the match! Finlay came in trying to stop the comeback from Hardy but Jeff dropped Finlay with a big dropkick sending the Fighting Irishman to the outside. JBL who was the legal man at the time stumbled into the path of Hardy who went for a Twist of Fate but got shoved off into the ropes. JBL charged at Jeff Hardy for the Clothesline from Hell but Jeff ducked and as JBL came back he ran into a big Twist of Fate from Jeff! Jeff made his ascendance to the top ropes as he leapt off the top rope hitting the Swanton Bomb to get the victory despite Finlay trying to crawl in and break the pin fall up. Jeff escaped the ring and made his way up the ramp as JBL grabbed a mic! JBL started yelling at Jeff that “this isn’t over and that if he loses at SummerSlam, two people will be out of jobs referring to himself and Jeff.” Jeff was making his way up to the top before Matt Hardy from Raw came running out! Matt ambushed Jeff from behind as Jeff rolled down the ramp way! JBL showed a smile on his face as Matt dragged Jeff back towards the ring before throwing Jeff into the ring. Matt stomped away at the body of his brother as Finlay and JBL held Jeff up. Matt slapped his brother in the face repeatedly before kicking him down low and then dropping Jeff with a Twist of Fate! The fans looked on booing Matt Hardy as Hardy looked at JBL and Finlay as JBL showed a smile but it doesn’t seem Matt did this for him, it seems Matt is trying to take advantage of Eric Bischoff’s offer a few weeks ago that if Matt wins, he gets a “special surprise” which could mean anything for him, possibly even the WWE title?

Backstage Big Show is standing by and is being interviewed once again concerning the big tag match this Sunday at SummerSlam. Big Show talks about last week’s match with Umaga stating that it proved that he truly is an unstoppable force and that is might be just nearly impossible for Finlay and Umaga to take down the Big Show. Big Show then says that once he finishes this up, he’ll do what he said he was going to do last month and prove that he is deserving of having a World-Heavyweight title shot. Big Show was almost done speaking before Armando Estrada entered. Armando introduced himself again before telling Big Show that he begged to differ. Big Show laughs at Estrada but Estrada says that not everybody is a Samoan Bulldozer like Umaga! Big Show looks at Estrada as if he is serious and Estrada says “as serious as I can be” before Umaga ambushes Big Show from behind! Umaga does a beat down on the Big Show before he repeatedly strikes the Big Show (who is down on the ground) with the Samoan Spike to the throat! Big Show starts coughing up blood as Estrada tells Umaga that is enough as Umaga walks off before Maria yells for some help to stop Big Show’s throat from bleeding.

Our next match is a six man tag match pitting John Morrison, The Miz, and Chris Masters all teaming together tonight to take on WWE Tag Team Champions Jesse and Festus and finally Kofi Kingston. It’s mainly used to further the feuds between the tag champs and Miz and Morrison but somewhat used to highlight the seemingly starting feud between Kingston and Masters. Either way the match didn’t really last long but it did end on an emphatic note as the monster Festus was able to close the match out and get the win for his team with the Fireman’s Carry Flapjack before covering the Miz and getting the victory! Jesse, Festus, and Kingston all celebrate the victory as Miz, Morrison, and Masters all look on from the outside rather distraught about losing the match.

The video package for the “Prototype” airs again this week as the numbers speed up and end with 8.24.07 before the letters arrange to form the words “He’s here….”

Maria catches up to Matt Hardy from Raw as Matt has his bags packed and is making his way out of the arena. Maria tries to ask Matt some questions but Matt doesn’t really respond to them though. Maria does ask Matt though how can he does this to his own flesh and blood and Matt responds with “I’m in it for myself Maria, not for Jeff” Maria looks at Matt as Matt rolls his luggage towards his car and he gets in driving off with not many questions answered.

Shawn Michaels is in the ring next to talk about his big match this Sunday at SummerSlam. Shawn talks about how it didn’t have to be this way and all of that before Ric Flair interrupted him rather quickly. Ric tells Shawn that he doesn’t care if it didn’t have to be this way or not. Ric noticed that the “egotistical” Shawn Michaels was back and that the Nature Boy was not going to take a stand for it. Ric said that he noticed a long time ago that Shawn didn’t care about his friends and that’s why he never really had that many “friends” in the first place. Flair points this out talking about how everyone from Diesel to Marty Jannetty to Triple H have either turned on or been turned on by Shawn Michaels. Flair says you can add The Nature Boy to that list but he’s not going to be just another name. HBK interrupts Flair saying that Flair is jealous that HBK is years younger than the Nature Boy, he’s still got something left in him but Flair stops him there. Flair tells HBK that he doesn’t believe any of that “bullshit” that is coming out of the Heart Break Kid’s mouth. Flair says he knows that he still has it in him and he’s not going to let some “has been” like Shawn Michaels try and tell him what to do with the rest of his career. The Nature Boy says he might be up in age but he’s still got the talent, the desire, and the skill to embarrass Shawn Michaels at SummerSlam. The Nature Boy tells Michaels that he finally shows Shawn Michaels just why they call him “The Living Legend” at SummerSlam but Michaels doesn’t want anything to do with Flair it seems. Flair was going to continue speaking but HBK began to walk off. Flair acknowledged this by asking HBK if he’s going to back out of something else in his life like he has many times before. Flair looks at HBK leaving it at that as the Nature Boy made his way out of the ring to boos looking down his former friend Shawn Michaels in the ring who is staring at the mat pondering about what Flair just said.

The next match of the night sees Gregory Helms take on Super Crazy. Super Crazy and Helms wrestled a good match as Super Crazy’s tag partner Psicosis was at ringside but the camera showed most of the Cruiserweight division watching on the television in their locker-room in the back. Super Crazy came oh so close to capturing victory but thanks to a quick Shining Wizard from the former Cruiserweight Champion; Helms was able to secure a victory. Helms grabbed a mic from ringside talking about the Cruiserweight title. Helms said that he heard the title will be making it’s return next month but Helms then tells the fans and the Cruiserweights watching backstage that they better hope Helms doesn’t win the title again because we’ll be back in the same predicament they are right now. NO TITLE! Helms walks off after the victory as the Cruiserweights in the back look on hoping someone can stop this seemingly unstoppable Cruiserweight.

Christian is backstage as he walks into the office of JBL. Finlay gets into the face of Christian but JBL tells Finlay to step back and let them worry about it this Sunday. JBL says Christian’s talked a lot of crap recently but he’s backed it up a lot too despite the fact he doesn’t want to admit it. Christian says that if he wins he wants a World-Heavyweight title shot and JBL says as much as he hates Christian, he might have to agree. JBL then says whatever team wins this Sunday at SummerSlam will have future World-Heavyweight title shots. Christian walks out smiling of the office knowing his time may be coming soon. Finlay looks at JBL to which JBL says “Don’t worry, I know Umaga and you’ve got this match won” which JBL and Finlay share a laugh as it seems JBL might be helping Finlay try to get towards the top of the mountain.

The fourth match of the night turns out to be a rather quick match that puts Umaga in action. Umaga runs right through Eugene squashing the poor “special” kid as Eugene was thrown about the ring. Umaga finished off Eugene with the Samoan Spike and struck the throat of Eugene several times just like he did Big Show earlier in the night. Umaga tossed Eugene into the corner as Eugene hit his head hard on the turnbuckle before Estrada stopped Umaga! Umaga and Estrada made their way up the ramp with Michael Cole and Tazz pointing out the fact that Umaga has indeed shown he may be an indestructible force tonight.

For the first time in weeks, we don’t get a match featuring all of the competitors but a special sit down interview conducted by Tazz (each superstar was interviewed separately). Each competitor in the match was interviewed concerning the match this Sunday and each one was asked the same several questions. First off Brent Albright talked about how there hasn’t been much words spoken but there doesn’t need to be. Albright says it’s all about this (as he points to the Intercontinental title) and that whoever wins this Sunday will prove just who is the most talented up and comer on Smackdown. Next was Carlito and Tazz asked Carlito his opinions about how everything has been going down the past few months in the Intercontinental title scene? Carlito says that it’s a joke that Carlito is not the champion right now but that can be changed this Sunday. Carlito then tells Tazz that the advantage he holds over the other three in the match is that he is the only superstar to win the US and Intercontinental titles in his first tries. Tazz then interviews Charlie Haas. Haas tells Tazz that just like his archrival Brent Albright said earlier, “There doesn’t need to be words spoken. We know what’s on the line, and that’s all that needs to be said” Tazz looks at Haas who’s not a man of many words and ends it with his seemingly popular catchphrase “It’s my time…” before the clips of Tazz interviewing London are shown. Tazz asks London if he knows that he is the only person in the match to NOT have been Intercontinental Champion. London said that doesn’t bother him at all because he’s just reaching the peak of his career. London tells Tazz that he’s tried his best and he’s finally gotten to where he needs to be at in his career. London tells Tazz that he’s gotten many big victories over the past few weeks but now this Sunday will be the only victory that will matter. London tells Tazz that if he can finally win his first big singles gold, he’ll finally have proven that he belongs here in the WWE.

Jamie Noble was backstage on the cell phone again this week for a brief period of time before he says “I’ll be there” to which Noble hangs the phone up and walks off. Noble leaves it at that as the series of mystery calls continue as they have for the past three weeks.

Edge cut a brief segment backstage talking about redemption this Sunday at SummerSlam and how he’s looking to earn his title back that was literally stolen from him as if he lived off the streets. Edge says that MVP had to cheat to win the briefcase and then the title but in just two nights Edge gets what he’s been waiting for since July. Edge says that he will be the next World-Heavyweight Champion and that he will finally stop the duo that is Ezekiel Jackson and MVP. The fans enjoy Edge’s promo as he says that “Step one starts now” referring to the main event match which is next!

The World-Heavyweight Champion MVP came out cutting a brief promo before the match about how the Tour of Greatness just kicked off last week and it was supposed to occur this week but MVP says that he needs a night off before SummerSlam so JBL gave him the night off. The fans find it ironic that he gets the night off before SummerSlam while Edge has to wrestle. But MVP says no worries because his big man Ezekiel Jackson is about to step into the ring and go toe to toe with former World-Heavyweight Champion Edge! This cues the music of Edge who wastes no time coming down to the ring as he charges in looking for a Spear on Jackson but Jackson moves and before MVP could get out of the way, Edge SPEARS MVP! MVP rolls out of the ring as the ref calls for the bell and the match starts. Edge and Jackson fought for a while during the match while the cameras focused on MVP trying to recover on the outside. Jackson dominated Edge for most of the match tossing Edge around and about in the corners but Edge finally mounted a comeback. After a hard series of right punches Edge was able to get Jackson on one knee before dropkicking Ezekiel down to the mat. Edge was setting up for the Spear but just as Edge charged across the ring MVP tripped him up pulling him to the outside. MVP went to hit Edge with a steel chair but Edge ducked and MVP completely missed and hit the steel ring post. Edge kicked MVP down low before tripping MVP face first into the steel post! Edge left the ring to a loud amount of cheers as MVP was down on the ground checking his face as Ezekiel came out to help him. Smackdown came to an end with MVP and Ezekiel both on the outside as Edge stood at the top prepared for SummerSlam on Sunday.

Breaking News: WWE Releases Four Superstars

So I really wasn't "feeling" it typing this show if you know what I mean. I think it was that PPV thing where you're ready to just get past that Big Four PPV. It happens nearly every single time for me. But anyways I really wanted to type SummerSlam in full but with baseball and work, there was no possible way it was going to be in full and be good. I need to work on my writing skills more anyways since it's been nearly forever since I've wrote a full match and I didn't want to throw crap out there for such a strong card. I hate that it won't be in full but promos will at least! So look for a SummerSlam preview Friday night, Backstage News and Notes on Saturday, and finally the 20th annual SummerSlam goes up on Sunday with recapped matches and full promos. After that I'll take about a week or two off while reviews come in to gather up my thoughts, etc. heading into Unforgiven. Most likely shows will be in full once I get past SummerSlam but we'll see.
