Friday Night Smackdown
Friday April 07, 2006
Salt Lake City, Utah
Rise Up, the official theme song for Friday Night Smackdown begins! We then head into the arena to the announce table at ringside with Michael Cole and Tazz
Michael Cole: Hello everybody and tonight we are coming off perhaps one of the greatest PPVís ever in WrestleMania 22
Tazz: So many big matches happened this past Sunday including that huge World-Heavyweight title match which Edge retained his title
Michael Cole: Plus JBL won the Money in the Bank briefcase, Undertaker remained undefeated and we crowned new Tag Team Champions!
Tazz: And many more things went down but tonight Iím looking forward to seeing what else we have planned for the aftermath of WrestleMania!
MacMillitant hits and Theodore Long, the General Manager of Smackdown comes out. Long is dancing his way down to the ring before he gets in. Long then walks over and receives a mic from the timekeeper at ringside and stops his music.
Theodore Long: If youíre ready for a great night of action on Smackdown, give me a Holla! Holla!
Theodore Long: Thatís right playas! Well Iíve got a few things to address out here tonight on Friday Night Smackdown. First off, we need a new number one contender to the World-Heavyweight Championship and that will be fixed tonight.
Theodore Long: Now listen up playas, tonight we are going to be having a 20 Man Over the top Rope Battle Royal with the winner facing the World-Heavyweight Champion, Edge next week with the title on the line! Twenty people have a chance to win a shot at the gold tonight and all they have to do playas is win the battle royal, you feeliní me?
Theodore Long: Now also tonight, which will actually be kicking off the show. We are going to be having a Fatal 4 Way Number One Contenderís Match for the United States Championship. Four men competing for a shot at Rey Mysterioís US title next week, those four men will be revealed later on during the match.
Theodore Long: And finaÖ.
Metalingus hits throughout the crowd and the World-Heavyweight Champion, Edge comes out onto the stage carrying his belt. The fans are booing the hell out of Edge as he smiles and rubs his belt signaling he is still the champion after WrestleMania. He slides into the ring and demands a mic, which he receives fairly quickly.
Edge: Whoa! Hold it there Teddy. If I heard you right you said there was going to be a Battle Royal tonight with the winner facing me? Well Iím the champion around here and Iím the one that makes the matches so Iím going to have to say no. Iím not going to face the winner of this match and there is nothing that you, nor these fans can do about it? Got it?
Theodore Long: Playa, Iím the General Manager here. You might be the World-Heavyweight Champion buÖ.
Edge: But nothing Teddy! Damn it, Iím the World-Heavyweight Champion, Iím bringing in the biggest ratings in not only Smackdown but in the WWE right now. Everywhere you look, you see the name of Edge! Whenever you start to bring in big ratings like that, you come and tell me and then we can start talking.
Theodore Long: Well playa, you listen up right now. There is going to be a Battle Royal tonight and there is nothing you can change about that. But I can throw you in there and make it for the title if that is what you want, so either you let the Battle Royal take place. And the winner faces you next week or you hand over the title and get to steppiní!
Edge: Teddy, Iím the Rated R Superstar and Iím not going to be leaving Smackdown and hand over my title because you want me to. You listen up, Iím your World-Heavyweight Champion, Iíve defeated Batista, Christian, and many more since coming here and you can throw anyone at me but the Rated R Superstar will remain the champ!
Edge Sucks Chants Break Out
Theodore Long: Playa, yÖ.
Edge comes charging across the ring, Theodore Long canít move. Itís too late as Edge comes crashing down on the GM with a huge Spear! The fans are booing the hell out of Edge right now as he is making his way to the back. He holds his title high in the air and taunts all of the fans as he looks down in the ring at Long. Long isnít moving and paramedics come rushing past Edge to help out the GM of Smackdown, Theodore Long.
Michael Cole: That sick son of a bitch! He just speared our General Manager, now what are we going to do without Long?
Tazz: Iím not sure Cole but something has to be done. The champion is on a rampage now and hopefully something will be done.
Michael Cole: Heís not worthy of being called a champion, heís worthy of being called a coward that attacks innocent people!
Tazz: Calm down Cole, something surely is going to be done about this. And Iím sure it will be announced later on sometimes.
#1 Contenderís Match
Booker T vs Bobby Lashley vs Matt Hardy vs Orlando Jordan
Match Overview: Very well received match from all of the fans as all four men in the ring have talent and prove it in this matchup. Lashley shows us his power while Hardy shows he still has what it takes to be a high flyer. Jordan mixes in his boxing skills and wrestling skills together while Booker T dominates as he normally does. Booker and Lashley mix up while Hardy and Jordan are mixing up in a corner exchanging chops with one another. The ending takes place whenever Booker measures up Hardy, he connects with his Houston Sidekick. Booker T then grabs Hardy and goes for a Bookend but gets chopblocked by Jordan. Jordan goes for a cradle onto Booker T but is grabbed by Lashley breaking the cover. Lashley picks Jordan up, he taunts to the fans delight, and then comes down hard with the Dominator onto Jordan! Lashley goes to cover but coming down the ramp is Mr. Kennedy! Kennedy grabs Lashley and pulls him out of the ring before he can make the cover. Kennedy sends Lashley flying into the steel steps and bashes his head off the steps. With there being four men, there cannot be a DQ. Back into the ring, Booker throws Hardy out of the ring and scoops Jordan up off the mat. Booker T comes running off the ropes and connects with the Scissors Kick! Booker quickly covers Jordan and the fans are booing, OneÖTwoÖThree!!!
Winner and #1 Contender: Booker T
Michael Cole: Booker T has become the number one contender once again and next week, we will get Rey Mysterio vs Booker T!
Tazz: Rey Mysterio is coming off a huge win at WrestleMania against Booker and Benoit and now he finds himself facing Booker T again?
Michael Cole: Mysterio is going to have to be on his game again, Booker T proved that he can roll with the best of the best.
Tazz: Itís going to be intresting next week; Iím looking forward to that huge match to see who can take home the gold with them.
We then cut backstage to see Booker T making his way into the back, he gets stopped by Josh Matthews and Booker T doesnít seem happy he got stopped
Josh Matthews: Booker, Booker, can I get a word with you right now since you just defeated three other men and now will face Rey Mysterio.
Booker T: Get out of my face. I have Rey Mysterio next week and the title is on the line, well this is going to be the last time, yeah the last time sucka! If I lose, itís my last shot at the United States Championship as long as Rey Mysterio is champion.
Josh Matthews: So what happens if Rey Mysterio does win, what are you going to do then after Mysterio beats you if he does?
Booker T: Tell me you didnít just say that! Rey Mysterio has no chance of beating me next week with the title on the line. Listen up sucka, itís going to be a No Holds Barred Match, anything goes, one fall to a finish and the winner is the United States Champion! Rey Mysterio has no chance of walking out next week with his title
Josh Matthews: OneÖ.
Booker T: Now can you dig thatÖSUCKA!!!!!
Booker T knocks the mic out of Matthewsís hand. Booker T starts walking off making his way down the hallway as we head to a commercial.

Tazz: Thatís right and weíve already got one match set for next week, No Holds Barred for the United States Championship!
Ukliq vs Funaki, Scotty 2 Hotty, and Shannon Moore
Match Overview: Squash match basically to put the Ukliq over here tonight. Ukliq dominates the whole match of course but the Cruiserweights do get a little bit of action thrown in there, Funaki seems to be the one targeted the most though. Finlay and Regal team up on Funaki while Burchill distracts the referee. Finlay beats down Funaki, then runs over as Scotty 2 Hotty tries coming into the ring to save Funaki. Finlay clotheslines Scotty over the ropes. Shannon Moore leaps onto the top rope then comes jumping off. Finlay ducks but Regal doesnít see him and gets taken down by a Missile Dropkick from Moore. Finlay is quick though to grab Moore and deliver a vicious clothesline to the cruiserweight. Finlay makes the tag into Burchill. Burchill grabs Funaki as Finlay heads to the outside of the ring and traps Moore in the ring apron. Burchill quickly grabs Funaki and delivers with the C-4! The fans are amazed and Burchill makes the cover, OneÖTwoÖThree!!!
Burn in my Light hits and Randy Orton, the Legend Killer comes out onto the stage. He does his trademark pose as his pyro comes down. Orton smiles cockily as he heads down into the ring and slides in. Orton then climbs onto the middle rope and once more does his trademark pose, he then receives a mic and the crowd boos the hell out of Orton.
Randy Orton: This past Sunday, I did what I said I was going to do! I once again added another killed legend to my list. Hell, perhaps the biggest legend has been killed and itís all courtesy of me, Randy Orton! The legacy of The Rock is no more, there is no more Rocky and heís never going to come back to the WWE again.
Crowd Pops for The Rock
Randy Orton: But Iím past The Rock. Thatís a thing of the past and Iím focusing on the future and the future is bright, Iíve got to say that! The future is bright because tonight Iím competing in the Battle Royal for the number one contendership. And really, I should have been named the number one contender in the first place for beating The Rock.
Randy Orton: But Iíve got to go through 19 other men tonight, 19 men stand in my way of becoming a 2-time World-Heavyweight Champion! Iím not satisfied with the one time, I might be the youngest World-Heavyweight Champion ever but now itís time for another reign. And it is my destiny to become the champion once again.
Randy Orton: Nobody is going to stop me from achieving my destiny once again, itís been done once and itís going to happen again. Whether you are a legend or not, it doesnít matter because tonight Iím taking the Battle Royal, tonight Iím going on to face Edge next week with the World-Heavyweight Championship on the line.
Randy Orton: Whether you like it or not, Iím going to become the next champion, you canít do anything about it, Edge canít do anything about it, and the fact of the matter is, it doesnít matter if your name is Christian, Chris Benoit, Rey Mysterio, Booker T, hell even The Undertaker, you are all going to be beaten tonight and become Randy Ortonís bitch!
Randy Orton: And to steal a quote from Christian, thatís hoÖ
Just Close Your Eyes hits and ďCaptain CharismaĒ Christian comes down onto the stage in his wrestling pants and his new t-shirt. Christian looks pissed that Orton is trying to steal his quote and Christian doesnít respond nicely to Orton. Christian slides into the ring and then grabs a mic, which is handed to him from the ringside workers.
Christian: Now, did I just hear you try to steal my quote? The peeps are mad, every damn one of them are mad because I lost at WrestleMania. I blew my dream but tonight Iím getting another chance to redeem myself, another chance to show the world I still have it takes to main event PPVís and main event the WWE, thÖ
Randy Orton: ThÖ
Christian jumps Orton. The fans are going wild as Christian is pounding on the Legend Killer and beating down the young and ever so cocky Orton. Christian has barely been out here and he has had enough of Orton already. Orton kicks Christian off of him but Christian backs him into the corner. Christian goes to clothesline Orton but Orton moves and Christian misses, Christian then comes at Orton but Orton leaps into the air and nails the RKO! The fans are booing the hell out of Orton as Christian is laid out in the ring. Orton smiles and then does his trademark pose as always before we cut over to the announcerís.
Michael Cole: Christian was barely out here for a minute and Randy Orton decides to beat down on Christian and RKO him?
Tazz: What in the hell are you talking about Cole, are you blind or something because Christian was the one that started it.
Michael Cole: Sure but Orton had no reason to beatdown Christian like that, Christian might have started it b..
Tazz: But nothing Cole. Christian started the whole thing and now he has to pay for it, and he had to pay for it in the end.
Jamie Noble vs Nunzio
Match Overview: Pretty decent non-title Cruiserweight matchup between these two. Vito gets ejected early on for tripping Noble up. Nunzio doesnít seem too happy with the announcement of Vito being kicked out but he has no choice. Nunzio shows he can hang with the best of the Cruiserweights in this matchup while Noble shows why he is the champion. Noble dominates Nunzio towards the ending but it takes a sudden twist whenever Nunzio dropkicks Noble in the face! Nunzio grabs Noble and climbs onto the ropes for the Sicilian Slice. Nunzio quickly leaps off but Noble spots him and at the last second moves, Nunzio is down for a few seconds but when he gets up, he staggers right into the path of the Cruiserweight Champion. Noble grabs his opponent and picks him up before delivering his finisher, the Tiger Driver! Noble makes the cover and the fans count along with their champion as the referee counts, OneÖTwoÖThree!!!
Winner: Jamie Noble
Michael Cole: Some great Cruiserweight action here tonight and you can only see it here on Friday Night Smackdown
Tazz: Of course, Jamie Noble has been one of the longest reigning champions and quite frankly, he might never lose it
Michael Cole: So many people have challenged Noble but so many have fallen and one includes his former friend, Kid Kash.
Tazz: Kash tried at No Way Out and at WrestleMania but was unable to walk away with the belt when it was all said and done.
Interview w/ Brian Kendrick and Paul London
Josh Matthews: Guys, tonight you two are going to be pulling double duty as you two have a non-title match, then the Battle Royal.
Brian Kendrick: Weíre the WWE Tag Team Champions, we beat MNM at WrestleMania and tonight one of us will win that Battle Royal
Paul London: Donít worry about us Josh, we can do it. Weíll be able to win because both matches tonight, well one of us will win the battle royal.
Josh Matthews: Paul, this is your second Tag Team Championship and Brian, this is your first, what does it feel like?
Brian Kendrick: It feels great Josh, to know that we finally beat MNM and that Iíve finally became a champion in the WWE, itís a great feeling.
Paul London: You know Josh, weíve got many more teams to go and when itís all said and done, London and Kendrick will be the greatest champs ever
Josh Matthews: One more thing guys, tonight your opponents are the Gymini, two men who are perhaps the biggest threat to you.
Paul London: Weíre afraid of no one, we beat MNM and took their titles and now they are ours and weíre going to keep them.
Brian Kendrick: Thatís right Paul, Josh we are not worried because the Gymini, well, they might be our biggest threat but weíll beat them, youíll see.
We cut backstage to see JBL standing in front of the screen where interviews are done, though is by himself and begins to speak
JBL: This past Sunday at WrestleMania, I did the impossible. People didnít think I could go in a Ladder Match but that was proven wrong. I defeated you, Carlito. You, Shelton Benjamin. Chris Masters, Ken Kennedy, and Matt Hardy. I defeated all five of you and now Iím the man, yeah Mr. Money in the Bank!
JBL: But I get another chance! Iím competing in the Battle Royal tonight, and well itís for me just another chance to become World-Heavyweight Champion. Iíve already got one right here in my hands with me (holds the briefcase up) and tonight Iíll be glad to get another chance whenever I win the Battle Royal.
JBL: Whether you like it or not, I hold in my hands a prize. A prize that assures me a shot at the World-Heavyweight Championship, whenever, wherever I want. And people want to know when I want to and plan on using it, Iím not giving anything away. Youíll all know when itís the right time and so will I
JBL: So call me whatever you want, JBL, AmerÖican HERO! John Bradshaw Layfield, self-made millionaire, hell whatever you want, I donít care. But the fact of the matter remains that Iím now the holder of this Money in the Bank briefcase, and it means that you are looking at your next World-Heavyweight Champion right now.
JBL: A Wrestling GodÖ..
Michael Cole: JBL is so full of himself to the point itís not even funny anymore, I hope someone hits him across the head with that briefcase
Tazz: Watch it Cole, JBL won that briefcase fair and square Sunday at WrestleMania and he does deserve it too!
Michael Cole: Fair and square my ass Tazz. Whatever the fact of the matter is like JBL said, heís still Mr. Money in the Bank.
Tazz: Either way, the man is deserving of the briefcase and you canít hold that fact down because we all know it is true.
Brian Kendrick and Paul London vs The Gymini
Match Overview: Another non-title match but with London and Kendrick competing again later on, they donít do as many insane moves as normal. London takes down Jake Gymini with a dropkick and then applies an armbar. Jesse Gymini comes running in and Brian Kendrick meets Jesse Gymini with a dropkick. The referee sees this and tries to restore order back into the matchup with it now being back down to London and Jake Gymini. Towards the end of the match, Kendrick is tagged in from London but London stays in. Kendrick and London send Jesse Gymini into the ropes and Jesse comes back into a Double Underhook Suplex. Jake Gymini comes with a clothesline at London but London ducks, and then charges with all he has to clothesline not only Jake but also himself over the ropes. This gives Kendrick time to grab Jesse Gymini and run off the turnbuckles, Sliced Bread #2 and the fans are going wild, OneÖTwoÖThree
Winners: Brian Kendrick and Paul London
We cut backstage to see Bobby Lashley walking around looking for the man who cost him the number one contendership earlier on, Ken Kennedy. Lashley bumps into a worker and he then asks him something.
Bobby Lashley: Have you seen Ken Kennedy?
Bobby Lashley: Ok.
Bobby Lashley: Come on Kennedy, come on out wherever youíre at.
Suddenly from behind Ken Kennedy comes running up and attacks Bobby Lashley from behind, this is moments before Kennedy competes in the Battle Royal. Kennedy is beating down on Lashley hard pounding on him. Kennedy goes to pick Lashley up but Lashley ducks, then runs Kennedy straight into a wall. Kennedy loses his grip on Lashley and suddenly WWE officials come running in as normal, they separate Kennedy and Lashley.
Bobby Lashley: Iíll get you Kennedy, weíll see who the dominant man is.
Ken Kennedy: Save it pal, Iím the one single handedly changing Friday Nights, Mr. KennedyÖÖÖÖÖ.
Bobby Lashley: ShÖ.
Ken Kennedy: KENNEDY!
Lashley breaks free and comes at Kennedy. Kennedy is getting beaten down by Lashley now returning the favor. Kennedy quickly gets security to grab Lashley and the security and WWE officials pull Lashley and Kennedy away from each other.
Michael Cole: I donít know what is going on between these two but something has to be real personal with each other
Tazz: They certainly donít like each other and Kennedy could be at blame to start it since afterall he did cost Lashley his match.
Michael Cole: Well a vicious beatdown from both Kennedy and Lashley and makes me wonder what is wrong with these two?
Tazz: Well right now Iím told that the Battle Royal, our main event is going to be coming up next but letís head backstage first.
We cut backstage to see Sylvan standing in front of a Quebec flag and he is dressed formally and then begins to speak.
Sylvan: Hello, my name is Sylvan! At large ambassador for Quebec.
Sylvan: Come to the isle of Quebec, leave America and enjoy your summer in the land of tranquility
Images of Sylvanís hometown are shown with people walking around in the summer, people enjoying their time in Quebec.
Sylvan: A place like no other, you can call Quebec a home.
More Images of Quebec are shown with the boos rising even louder, USA Chants Break Out and Sylvan looks angered
Sylvan: The choice is yourísÖ.
Images of Sylvan walking around parks in Quebec raising his hands high and walking around even more are shown to the fans
Sylvan: Quebec, a place like home!
Finally, images are shown of Quebec being shown from high distances, we see some huge buildings and major parks before we head back to Sylvan.
Sylvan: Weíll be waiting for you!
Michael Cole: And that was disgusting, Sylvan has no respect for any of the Americanís here but he wants to represent Quebec?
Tazz: And you know why I hate the guy. But coming up right now, a huge Battle Royal will be taking place for the number one contendership.
Michael Cole: The winner will face Edge next week for the World-Heavyweight Championship and thatís not the only title match next week.
Tazz: No itís not Cole because the United States title will be contested under No Holds Barred Rules between Booker T and Rey Mysterio!

Several of the small name people like the Mexicools, Mizanin, are eliminated early on and we start to see eliminations rise quickly. Ukliq seem to be teaming up on the WWE Tag Team Champions but London is able to Hurricanrana Regal over the ropes. Finlay takes advantage though and quickly dumps London out too. Kendrick charges at Burchill with a dropkick but misses and Burchill plants Kendrick with a clothesline. Burchill picks Kendrick up but Kendrick kicks Burchill, then runs Burchill into the ropes with the momentum sending Burchill over the ropes but Kendrick hangs on. Kendrick sees Finlay coming and he leaps onto the top rope, then leaps right over Finlay. Finlay charges at Kendrick and Kendrick pulls the ropes down but Finlay stops. Finlay then quickly grabs Kendrick and tosses him over with Kendrick having to let go of the ropes. Over on the other side of the ring, Mercury and Nitro are working together on the United States Champion in Rey Mysterio trying to wear him down. Mysterio is almost tossed over but wonít let go off the ropes. Nitro tries to toss Mercury over but Nitro gets a headscissors sending Nitro over. Mercury charges and Mysterio catapults Mercury to the outside. Mark Henry comes and works on Mysterio while we head over and watch action between Christian and Randy Orton. Itís an all out brawl between these two with Christian getting the better of it. We see Batista working on Benoit and Undertaker sees Batista. Batista meets Undertaker with a Spinebuster. He then grabs Undertaker and bashes his head off the ropes before running at Undertaker. Undertaker moves and Batista hits the corner. Undertaker then scoops up Batista and dumps him out to which Batista canít believe. Batista is slapping the mat on the outside in disbelief. JBL is hiding in the corner trying to let everyone else fight it out but Mysterio spots him and delivers a Bronco Buster to JBL! The fans are going wild now as JBL is knocked down from the Bronco Buster. Henry grabs Finlay on the other side of the ring and lifts him above his head, Finlay fights off Henry with his shillelagh he had earlier. Finlay beats Henry across the back of the head with the shillelagh, then gets some help. Everyone left in the ring comes over and grabs Henry and eliminates him! Itís down to eight men now with all eight men vowing to become the next World-Heavyweight Champion. Finlay looks worn out and doesnít seem to be in it much longer and gets clotheslined out by Undertaker. Orton goes for another RKO on Christian but Christian fights him off, then goes to send him to the outside. Orton hits some rights on Christian, then reverses and sends Christian flying out of the ring with an hard Irish Whip! Benoit is on fire now delivering numerous German Suplexes to JBL and JBL starts to look woozy. JBL gets knocked down with a shoulder block from The Undertaker. Undertaker grabs up JBL and goes for a Chokeslam from Hell but JBL slides off and delivers a lowblow, then grabs The Undertaker and sends him flying out of the ring to the outside. Kennedy attacks Mysterio from behind, Mysterio dropkicks Kennedy though sending him down into the ropes. Mysterio goes for the 619. Kennedy moves and Mysterio lands in the ring. Mysterio then jumps onto the top rope for a West Coast Pop to Kennedy but JBL runs over and pushes the ropes. Mysterio flies off the ropes and lands on the outside hard. Only four men remain now with Kennedy, Orton, Benoit, and JBL. Itís three against one now with Kennedy, Orton, and JBL all seeming to team up against Benoit. Kennedy is leaning on the ropes telling Orton to go first but Orton knows better. Orton grabs Kennedy and tosses him over bringing it down to three and Kennedy canít believe it! JBL charges at Benoit but Benoit pulls the ropes down and JBL goes flying to the outside himself. Orton then comes charging at Benoit and Benoit catches him with the German Suplex combo. Benoit taunts and heads to the top rope. Orton heads over quickly and shakes the ropes and Benoit lands on the turnbuckles. Orton goes to push Benoit off the turnbuckle but Benoit gets down, then chops Orton repeatedly. Orton responds with a thumb to the eye, then goes for an RKO! However Benoit grabs Orton and reverses and with his momentum sends both himself and Orton flying to the outside. Orton hits the mat first and itís over!
Winner and #1 Contender: Chris Benoit
