WWE SmackDown! 7/21/2006
The SmackDown! Intro plays. We then cut into the arena as the fireworks and pyro goes off as the fans in the go crazy.
Joey Styles: Welcome everyone, to Friday Night SmackDown! I’m the former voice of ECW, Joey Styles. And as announced by WWE.com this week, I am the new voice of SmackDown! Last week, Michael Cole was destroyed by the 7 foot 2, 500 pound monster known as The Big Show. Show chokeslammed Michael Cole through a table and now Michael will be out for an indefinite amount of time. But my new broadcast partner Tazz is not with us right now because he wants some revenge on The Big Show in our first match.
“Thug Superstar” blasts over the loudspeaker as the number “13” flashes on the. “The Human Suplex Machine” Tazz makes his way down the ramp with a black towel covering his face. The fans give Tazz a good ovation as he enters the ring and raises his hands.
Tony Chimel: The following singles contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, hailing from The Red Hook section of Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 240 pounds, TAZZ!
Styles: There he is. The most miserable S.O.B. on the planet. In my opinion Tazz is in over his head. The Big Show is more violent than ever. He put Matt Hardy through a table. He broke Michael Cole in half by putting him through a table. Tazz just may be next. I hope not.
“Crank it Up” plays over the P.A. system. The Big Show begins to slowly walk to the ring as the fans give Show tremendous heat. Show has a scowl on his face as the audience showers him in boos.
Chimel: And his opponent, standing at……(Chimel is cut off as Tazz immediately goes after The Big Show).
Big Show vs. Tazz
Tazz flails away wildly at The Big Show catching him with rights and lefts to the head. Show simply shoves Tazz away with one hand. Tazz gets back up to his feet and charges at The Big Show. Show catches Tazz with a boot to the face as Tazz was coming in. Show lifts Tazz up. Show shoots Tazz into the corner and then uses his foot to choke out Tazz. Show tells the fans to be quiet as the fans give Show tremendous heat. Show gives Tazz a NASTY overhand chop. Show tells Tazz to get up as the audience begins a “BIG SHOW SUCKS!” chant. Show lifts Tazz up off of the ground. “The Human Suplex Machine” begins to fight back by throwing right hands at The Big Show. Tazz hits about a dozen punches in a row which backs Show against the ropes. Tazz backs up and charges at Show. Show grabs Tazz around the throat. Tazz counters the move with a thumb to the eye. Tazz then kicks Show in the kneecap causing Show to go down to one knee. Tazz then goes behind Show and applies the Tazzmission. The fans go crazy as they feel Tazz is about to win the match-up with his patented finisher. The Big Show gets back up to both of his feet as Tazz continues to apply pressure to the chokehold. Show backs up and rams Tazz into the corner but he holds on to the Tazzmission. Show then backs Tazz up into a different corner but Tazz refuses to release the hold. Show then falls back first onto the canvas, SQUASHING Tazz under his 500-pound frame. Show slowly gets back up to his feet as he recovers from the Tazzmission. Show pulls down his strap and waits as Tazz stumbles up to his feet. Show locks in the Cobra Clutch. Show then lifts Tazz up and drills him with the Cobra Clutch Backbreaker. The Big Show keeps the Cobra Clutch locked on Tazz. Tazz passes out from the hold. The referee lifts up Tazz’s hand.
(WINNER: Big Show via submission at 4:57)
Styles: The Big Show wins it! With this new attitude The Big Show may just be unstoppable! I feel sorry for Matt Hardy at The Great American Bash. Now what’s he doing?
The Big Show climbs out of the ring and looks for something under the ring. After a few seconds of searching, Show pulls out a TABLE! Show picks up the table and throws it into the ring. Show then re-enters the ring and sets up the table.
Styles: DAMN! I think Tazz is about to become just another victim in the path of destruction of The Big Show.
Show picks up Tazz off of the ground. Show then wraps his right hand around the throat of Tazz. The fans boo loudly as The Big Show lifts Tazz high in the air. Suddenly……“Live For The Moment” blasts over the P.A.. Show drops Tazz and waits for Hardy to get in the ring. Show keeps waiting in the ring but Hardy doesn’t make an appearance. The fans cheer loudly as Matt Hardy jumps the fan barricade with a steel chair in his right hand. Hardy enters the ring and DRILLS Show in the back with a steel chair. Hardy then waits for The Big Show to get back to his feet as the audience chants “HARDY!” Show struggles to get back up to his feet. When Show finally does, Hardy NAILS Show with the chair right in the head causing Show to fall back right THROUGH THE TABLE! The fans cheer wildly as Hardy stands over The Big Show.
Styles: OH MY GAWD! Hardy just put The Big Show through the table! But can he do it this Sunday? Matt Hardy vs. The Big Show in a Tables match, live this Sunday Night only on Pay-Per-View!
We go to commercial break with Hardy still staring at Big Show.
***A replay of the opening angle between Hardy and Show is shown right after we return from break***
***We cut back to ringside***
Styles: My God, Tazz. Are you going to be able to do the show tonight?
Tazz: The Big Show is one strong S.O.B.. My neck is a little sore but I’ll be fine. Its not about me. Matt Hardy just proved that the saying is true. “The bigger they are, the harder they fall.”
Styles: Lets go to the General Manager’s office.
***We cut to the Teddy Long’s office as The Pit Bulls (Kid Kash & Jamie Noble) are arguing about something***
Kid Kash: Teddy, you got to do the right thing. Last week, Mr. Kennedy and JBL got involved in our match with London & Kendrick. So you got to give us a shot at those Tag Team titles at The Great American Bash.
Teddy Long: I can’t do that playa’. Paul London & Brian Kendrick earned a shot at the Tag Team Titles by defeating you two.
Jamie Noble: But JBL and Kennedy interfered….
Long: It doesn’t matter playa’. The fact of the matter is that London & Kendrick get the title shot at The Bash. But you know what I can do? I can give you a little bit of payback. Tonight, it will be The Pit Bulls, Jamie Noble and Kid Kash, in a tag team match against Mr. Kennedy and JBL. Holla! Holla! Holla!
Just then the World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle busts up in Teddy Long’s office. Angle grabs Teddy by the collar of his suit.
Long: What the hell?
Angle: TEDDY! I want King Booker and I want his ass tonight (Loud pop)! Last week, that piece of crap has the nerve to attack me after our match.
Teddy: Just relax playa’.
Long tries to pull Angle off of him.
Angle: DON’T F*CKING TOUCH ME! (The whole sentence is bleeped out by the CW censors)
Long: Alright, you want it you got it. Tonight its King Booker, Sir William Regal and Finlay vs. Rey Mysterio, Bobby Lashley, and Kurt Angle .
The audience cheers wildly for the announcement of the match as Angle lets Long’s collar go and walks out.
***We cut back to ringside***
Styles: What a huge main-event just announced for tonight! King Booker, Finlay and William Regal vs. the World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle, United States Champion Bobby Lashley and Rey Mysterio in a match here tonight.
Tazz: That’s just a preview for this Sunday, when Mysterio, Angle, and King Booker wrestle for the World Title at the Bash.
“Simon System” hits to a mild heel reaction. Simon Dean makes his way to the ring on his Simon Scooter.

“Mexicools” hits to a good pop. Super Crazy comes down the ramp and towards the ring on his “Juan Deere”.
Chimel: And his opponent weighing in at 202 pounds, “The Insane Luchador” SUPER CRAZY!
Styles: At The Great American Bash this Sunday on Pay-Per-View, Super Crazy gets a shot at the Cruiserweight Title when he takes on the longest reigning champion in WWE history, Gregory Helms.
Tazz: In my humble opinion, that match is going to steal the show. The two top cruiserweights in the business go at it on Pay-Per-View this Sunday night. I can’t wait to call that match.
Super Crazy vs. Simon Dean
Crazy and Dean circle each other to start off the match-up. They lock up in a collar-and-elbow tie-up. Dean hits Crazy with a knee to the gut. Dean then shoots him off of the ropes and hits a powerslam. Dean then lifts Crazy up by the hair and yanks him down to the canvas. Dean then plays to the crowd as some in the crowd boo. Crazy kips up off of the ground, receiving a good ovation from the audience. Dean turns around and gets drilled with a dropkick by Super Crazy. Dean gets up quickly to his feet only to go right back down to a Super Crazy clothesline. Dean gets back up. Crazy takes him and shoots him off of the ropes. Crazy hits a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Crazy covers Dean……..1.………..2.……KICK OUT. Crazy lifts Dean back up to his feet. Dean pokes him in his eye and then rolls out of the ring. Crazy recovers from the poke in the eye. Crazy bounces off of the ropes and jumps over the top rope and hits Dean with a corkscrew plancha. The fans go crazy as Super Crazy celebrates hitting the move. Crazy lifts Dean up and throws him in the ring. Crazy climbs up onto the apron, jumps over the top rope, lands on the second rope, springboards off and hits a beautiful moonsault on Dean. 1.…..2.……..3!!!
(WINNER: Super Crazy at 4:32)
Styles: What a win for Super Crazy!
Tazz: Super Crazy is warming up for his title match at The Bash. An impressive win for…..What the hell is this!?
“Gregory Helms” hits. The Cruiserweight Champion Gregory Helms appears in the entrance way with microphone in hand.
Helms: Crazy that was an impressive win. Very impressive. But you must realize that Simon Dean is no Gregory Helms. You must realize that there is nobody in the Cruiserweight division as good as Gregory Helms. This Sunday night on Pay Per View, Gregory Helms shows you that he IS the Cruiserweight Division. The longest reigning Cruiserweight Champion of all time destroys “The Insane Luchador” at The Great American Bash!
Helms drops the mic and walks off back through the curtain.
Styles: Strong words from the Cruiserweight Champion. Later tonight, six-man tag featuring the three superstars in the World Championship match this Sunday on Pay-Per-View.
Tazz: But coming up next, The Pit Bulls attempt to gain a measure of revenge on JBL and Mr. Kennedy. The tag champs take on The Pit Bulls, NEXT!
“Mr. Kennedy” hits to a LOUD mixed reaction. Ken Kennedy quickly walks down the ramp with his WWE Tag Team Championship belt over his right shoulder and enters the ring. Mr. Kennedy raises his hand and waits for his patented microphone to lower from the ceiling.
Kennedy: Ladies and gentlemen, this next contest is a NON-TITLE match scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, he is one-half of the greatest WWE Tag Team Champions of all freakin’ time. He is single handedly changing Friday Night. He and his tag team partner will absolutely destroy Paul London and Brain Kendrick in only two days. He hails from Green Bay, Wisconsssssiiiiiinnnnnnn. Mmiiisssttteeerrrr Kkeennneeeddddyyyyyy……………KENNEDY!
“Longhorn” hits to tremendous heat. JBL makes his way down the entrance ramp with his WWE Tag Team title around his waist.

Kennedy throws his microphone into the air as JBL waits for the Pit Bulls.
“Kid Kash” hits as the Pit Bulls, Jamie Noble and Kid Kash, make their way down to the ring, receiving a mixed reaction from the crowd.
Tony Chimel: And their opponents, at a combined weight of 404 pounds, Kid Kash and Jamie Noble, THE PIT BULLS!
Styles: Last week right here on WWE SmackDown!, JBL and Mr. Kennedy interfered in the match between The Pit Bulls and the #1 contenders. The Tag Champs laid the other two teams out with chair shots.

Styles: BY Disqualification!
Tazz: A win is a win. Our GM should definitely give these Pit Bulls a title shot.
Styles: Whatever. Later tonight, the World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle teams up with Rey Mysterio and Bobby Lashley to take on King Booker and his royal court. But coming up next, a rare appearance by The Undertaker. The Undertaker on SmackDown! NEXT!
*GONG* “Deadman” blasts over the P.A. System as the fans go crazy. Undertaker comes to the ring walking slowly and methodically.

The crowd cheers at the chance to get a preview of The Great American Bash.
“Punjab” hits to minor heat. The Great Khali walks to the entrance ramp…but Daivari is not at his side.
Taker: I can’t help but notice, something is different. Look at the screen, boy.
Everyone’s eyes focus on the screen as a vignette plays……The Undertaker is in a graveyard in his famous hat and leather trench coat and is shoveling dirt into the ditch. The camera then pans into the grave and shows the man who is in the ditch. The camera moves up from the man’s feet to his face. Its DAIVARI. The audience cheers as they realize that Taker is burying Daivari alive. The vignette goes off.
Taker: Khali. One down…one to go. At The Great American Bash…you will…REST……IN………PEACE!!
Khali looks at the Undertaker and for the first time The Great Khali has fear in his eyes as he stares at “The Phenom”. Taker gives Khali the “slash throat” sign as he rolls his eyes in the back of his head.
Styles: The Undertaker has buried Daivari alive. Oh My God. The Undertaker means business, this Sunday at The Great American Bash.
Tazz: If I can see it, you know Taker sees it. There is fear in the eyes of The Great Khali. Khali is afraid of “The Deadman”.

Long: That’s gonna be huge. Taker, Khali in a Buried Alive match in only two days. Holla! Holla! Holla!
The Pit Bulls, Jamie Noble and Kid Kash, storm into Long’s office.
Long: What is the meaning of this?
Noble: Teddy, you saw what went down out there. We just beat the tag team champions. That means we get the next title shot at the champions.
Long: How many times do I have to tell you? Paul London and Brian Kendrick get the title shot at The Great American Bash! You two will get a title shot eventually just not the NEXT title shot.
Kash: You’re gonna regret that! The Pit Bulls don’t take a backseat to nobody! You’re gonna regret that Teddy!
The Pit Bulls storm out of the office as Teddy Long look on.

***When we return from break, footage is shown of the fights between Batista and Mark Henry the past two weeks***
Two weeks ago: Batista returned to SmackDown after a 6 month sabbatical and “The Animal” was unleashed on Mark Henry. Batista came to the ring and a huge brawl between Henry and Batista ensued. The melee took several dozen wrestlers and security to pull “The Animal” and “The World’s Strongest Man” apart.
Last week on SmackDown!: Batista defeated Simon Dean in a squash match. After the match Mark Henry made his way down to the ring and another huge brawl between the two huge men ensued. Except this time, Batista and Henry were so obsessed with destruction, they start swinging at and HITTING wrestlers and security guards. Eventually the brawl is broken up by wrestlers from the back
***We return back to ringside***
“Some Bodies Gonna Get It” hits to momentous heat. “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry makes his way to the ring as he is showered in boos. Henry enters the ring and looks at his opponent like a piece of meat.

Tazz: John Trapp? What a way to catch a big break in this company? Taking on a pissed off Mark Henry.
Styles: I don’t think this match will last long.

Henry lifts him up and kicks him in the gut. Henry then delivers a nasty Sit-out powerbomb to Trapp. The cover by Henry. 1.……2.………3!!!
(WINNER: Henry via pinfall at 2:10)
Styles: What a sign of disrespect and dominance. Henry just used Batista’s finishing sequence to put this match away.
Tazz: Mark Henry is confident, arrogant and damn deadly heading into The Great American Bash only two days away!
Henry walks up the ramp and into the back.
Styles: The Great American Bash is shaping up to be the best SmackDown! Pay-Per-View of all-time!
Tazz: Three main events, Styles. THREE!
Styles: One of those main-events features the man we just saw, Mark Henry, taking on “The Animal” Batista.
Tazz: Batista vs. Henry. Extremely personal. Extremely vicious. But also on the line, a World Heavyweight Championship shot at SummerSlam. This match will be explosive.
Styles: The Great Khali, WITHOUT Daivari, takes on The Undertaker in a Buried Alive match.
Tazz: Tonight we saw, the Undertaker bury Daivari alive. I feel sorry for The Great Khali at The Bash.
Styles: For the United States Championship, Bobby Lashley defends against Finlay.
Tazz: Finlay has had Lashley’s number. If this trend continues we will see a new United States Champion at The Bash.
Styles: Matt Hardy takes on The Big Show in a Tables match.
Tazz: Both of these men have put each other threw tables in recent weeks including tonight. Who goes through a table this Sunday?!
Styles: Super Crazy attempts to take away the Cruiserweight Championship from Gregory Helms.
Tazz: Helms is the longest reigning Cruiserweight Champion in history. Will that reign come to an end in just two days?
Styles: The WWE Tag Team Champions John Bradshaw Layfield and Mr. Kennedy defend their titles against Paul London and Brian Kendrick.
Tazz: Despite all of the complaining and protesting by The Pit Bulls, this match will happen as advertised. Can the young team of London and Kendrick defeat the arrogant team of JBL and Kennedy….Kennedy?
Styles: And the biggest match and the biggest main-event of them all, “The Wrestling Machine” Kurt Angle defends the World Heavyweight Championship against Rey Mysterio and King Booker!
Tazz: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Everybody is predicting that this match is gonna steal the show and be a classic. I don’t see it. Kurt Angle is unstoppable. Don’t get me wrong King Booker and Rey Mysterio are two of the best wrestlers on the planet BUT Angle is in a league of his own at this very moment. Nobody can beat this man. Not Booker, not Rey, not Triple H, not Shawn Michaels, not John Cena, not Randy Orton, not even Batista.
Styles: What the Hell is going on!? Cut to the back!
***We cut to the parking lot***
Batista and Mark Henry are brawling in the parking lot. Henry lifts Batista and slams him onto a hood. Henry then jumps on the hood and begin to whale away on Batista.

Batista kicks Henry in the gut and grabs him by the back of the head. Batista then takes him and SLAMS HIS HEAD THROUGH A CAR WINDOW! All of the referees and security jumps on Batista and takes him down to the ground. They then lift him up and drag him back into the arena. Henry pulls his head out of the window as blood drips from his forehead. Henry begins to smile and laugh as he wipes the blood off of his face. Henry says “Big mistake Batista.”
“MacMilitant” hits to a good face reaction. Teddy Long appears on the ramp.
Long: Up next is our main event 6 man tag team match but I feel I need to address the Batista-Mark Henry situation. Due to the volatile nature of this feud, I feel some precautionary measures need to be taken. The Great American Bash is shaping up to be a hell of a Pay-Per-View and I don’t want these two monsters to ruin it. So therefore I am instilling a no contact clause between the two of them until their match at The Bash. If you two touch each other before the bell rings during your match, then you both will be suspended for six months!
Styles: Damn! That’s a tough stip…Oh he’s not done.
Long: Secondly, the match between Batista and Mark Henry is now NO DISQUALIFICATION (audience erupts with cheers)! Now lets get to the main-event. Holla! Holla! Holla!
