1. Dos Caras defeated Ryan Mitchell. Mitchell billed from Buffalo, got lots of support. Caras got a lot of heat for telling us to learn Spanish. Caras won in what was a pretty good match. He received good heat for a dark match.
WWE Smackdown Taping
1. Kofi Kingston defeated Christian to win the Intercontinental Title. This match alone will make Friday’s show worth watching. The crowd was into it the whole time. Kofi won with Trouble in Paradise.
After the match, Drew McIntyre came out and handed a letter to Teddy Long. After reading the letter, Teddy asked Kofi for the title. Kofi initially refused to give it to him, but eventually gave in. Teddy gave the title belt back to McIntyre, who was pretty much booed out of the building. They wasted a great match. Kofi stood in the ring fuming after Drew left for a couple minutes before leaving.
After commercial, Matt Striker read the letter and was booed completely. Everyone is pissed over this. WWE did a great job generating heat.
2. Shad Gaspard beat a local wrestler. Total squash match that went on longer than it should have. The crowd was pretty dead for it until the end. Shad got more cheers than heat, which is not good if they want him to be a monster heel.
