WWE taped Smackdown before ECW tonight.
Through the hard shot, the place is basically full. Camera side is almost entirely tarped off. This arena only has the one level, no upper bowl. Attendance similar to their last TV here though.
Major Brothers over Paul Burchill & William Regal
Out come JBL & Michael Cole.
Batista comes out. He blabs and says nothing significant. Khali interrupts from the back. Again, nothing significant. Batista you don’t know what it’s like to be with a caged animal.
Chuck Palumbo, with Michelle McCool, over Ace Steel.
The match was very short. Immediately after the pin, Chris Masters comes in and puts Chuck in the Master Lock. He passes out and Masters breaks it. PPV Filler anyone?
(Ace just made it to TV in OVW and already he’s a Smackdown jobber. Hopefully this doesn’t mean doom for his WWE career.)
Jamie Noble over Jimmy Wang Yang.
Floor producer came around and handed out revised run sheets at this point.
Matt Hardy & MVP come out. They have some sort of push up contest and MVP wins. I went to the bathroom.
Tag Team Championship: Matt Hardy & MVP over Deuce & Domino, with Cherry.
Kane over Kenny Dykstra, with Victoria.
In the back, MVP tried to turn the tables on Matt by asking Vickie Guerrero to make a match between Matt and Kane’s brother, Undertaker. Instead she said Kane & Undertaker would take on Matt Hardy & MVP.
Jesse & Festus over Chad Collyer & Mike Tolar. Apparently their theme song is called Biscuits & Gravy.
Rey Mysterio over Great Khali via DQ. Finlay interfered. Batista ran in for the save. Two PPV match hypes for the price of one!
There was a dark match between Smackdown & ECW. Funaki beat Mike Kruel.
