WWF Smackdown 04/12/2001 - WWF Intercontinental Championship: Triple H vs. Jeff Hardy
Triple H wastes no time beating on Jeff and hammering away on him in a corner. Triple H throws Jeff through the ropes then brings him back in as we see Stephanie watching from the back. Triple H whips Jeff but Jeff comes back with a head scissors followed by a dropkick and hits a second dropkick. Triple H regains control and goes for a Pedigree but Jeff counters with a take down and hits the double legdrop. Jeff dropkicks Triple H in the face then hits the count-along punches in a corner but Triple H shoves him off. Triple H whips Jeff into a corner but Jeff runs up the turnbuckles and connects with the Whisper in the Wind. Triple H throws Jeff under the ropes then goes after him but Jeff blocks Triple H and rams him into the steps. Jeff runs across the barricade and dives at Triple H but Triple H catches him into a slightly-botched powerslam. Triple H goes for a whip. Jeff sends him into the barrier then leaps off the apron but Triple H powerslams him. Triple H whips Jeff into the steps before rolling him back in the ring when Jeff desperately tries to fight back. Jeff goes for a whip but Triple H reverses it and connects with the high knee then continues assaulting him. Triple H chokes Jeff on the middle rope then beats him down some in a corner and chokes him with his boot. Triple H whips Jeff and slaps on a sleeperhold and Jeff begins to fade but counters the hold with a jawbreaker. Jeff follows up with a Russian legsweep and climbs to the top rope but Triple H pulls the referee into the ropes. Jeff straddles the turnbuckles and the referee reprimands Triple H for that but Triple H just shoves him down. Triple H goes up and sets up for a superplex … when Matt Hardy runs in and clobbers Triple H with a chair! Triple H is down as Jeff connects with the Swanton Bomb and gets the 1..2..3!!! **3/4 Awesome veteran heel vs. underdog title match. Triple H was brutal with his beat down and really made Jeff look good and i gotta give Jeff credit his dramatic selling and desperate energetic comebacks was really good here. This was a major upset at the time and a great Smackdown moment.
So including gifts I got for Christmas and things I have bought myself over the past 2 weeks, my list of goodies has grown to include the following:
Cage Match Set
Elimination Chamber Set
Best PPV Matches 2011
Ric Flair Definitive Collection
The Rock Set
Brock Lesnar Set
Ricky Steamboat Set
Ladder Match Set
On top of that I still have to watch the last 2 HHH/Flair matches and write something up for them for my review series and get that posted along with my 2012 year end review I planned on doing. Silvervision sure has got their money's worth out of me and I don't even think I'm finished buying yet.
I remember legitimately thinking that Santino was going to win the 2011 Rumble. That was an awesome moment.
Santino is just awesome. I'm really pissed WWE didn't give us Santino vs Show on SD. That match would have been so damn entertaining not to mention there were gonna be the few moments where you thought he was going to win.
Instead they gave us Show vs Del Rio, as if anyone wanted to see that shit. I mean they gave away basically their big PPV story on free TV .
Oh yeah he's dull as fuck and I don't really give a shit, but its still a confusing situation lol. I'm expecting Show/Sheamus/Del Rio triple threat at the RR atm, unless they do Sheamus/Show for the title on the first SD of 2013 (they like to do big title matches now which is pretty cool), then have Del Rio face Show on his own at the RR. Either way I'm not looking forward to that . Give me Show/Sheamus LMS and I'll be happy.
