Once again my affiliate of My Network screwed me over and I couldn’t get to see ALL of smackdown. I joined the show at 7:39 pm pst and it was R. Rtruth going against MVP.
R. Truth defeated MVP
I joined this match with R. Truth in full control of MVP, but that was quickly turned back towards MVP’s favor. He missed the drive by kick, and R Truth landed his scissors kick for the clean victory over MVP. Once again the wwe has buried MVP, and it’s sad to see such a good talent getting squashed like this. MVP loses clean to R. Truth!
I’m going to have to start managing my time better, so that I don’t miss any of Smackdown, what a load of crap, MY network sucks.
The new Kizarny character is already bugging me.
Ezekiel Jackson defeated Super Crazy
When this match started I immediately yawned. This couldn’t be good for Super Crazy at all. Crazy got squashed hard and fast with what looked like The Rock Bottom. This match was no longer than 2 minutes long. Way to bury your talent wwe, way to go, Super Crazy is most likely on his way out.
Undertaker and The Great Khali fought to a no contest
Wow, way to waste my time WWE. This match was all Khali, and right when things started to turn around, Big Show ran in with an interference, and beat down the Undertaker. Show then grabbed a chair and wanted Khali to hit Undertaker with it, and after some verbal assaults from Show to Khali, Khali left the ring and didn’t look back.
Post match, Undertaker hit Big Show with a chair in the back, knocking him outside of the ring.
Maria won a diva invitational of sorts
This divas match was weird. At a lot of points in this match there was a lot of standing around with dumb looks at the hard camera. Maria dressed as Poison Ivy was kind of hot. The rest of the match was nothing major, they all attacked each other in the corner trying to get the fuzzy dice. The goal was to get the dice, that were hanging on a pole, and they would get a shot at the diva’s title.
Maria looked hot, that’s for sure.
Jesse & Festus defeated Kenny Dykstra & Ryan Braddock
Festus changing thanks to the bell is a tired gag to me. I’m sick of seeing it and I don’t like it any longer. Seeing Kenny still in the wwe just reminds me of the old Spirit Squad gang, and sometimes wish there were more stables in the wwe right now. Ryan Braddock looks like a younger, smaller Bradshaw. I wasn’t the only one that thought this match kind of sucked, the audience was dead through most of it. Some moves from Festus did prompt a few “oooohs” but for the most part this crowd was not 100% behind this match up. Festus wins this match with a flapjack on Dykstra, and I for one am NOT surprised with the results.
The WWE Tag division hasn’t been this boring in a LONG time. Trust me, it can’t get any worse.
Kozlov defeated Jeff Hardy
Kozlov looked good in this match, and I couldn’t help but think of him as a new “Goldberg” like wrestler. Stepping into this match undefeated was definitely a big thing, especially since he has yet to face a challenger that posed a serious threat to him. Kozlov took control of this match early on and was seriously throwing Hardy some heavy hitting moves. Before the commercial break he was throwing Hardy shoulder first into the ringside pole! After the commercial break we were still getting Kozlov beating Hardy, and it wasn’t looking too good for the high flyer. Things really went sour after Kozlov dropped Hardy with his patented head butt, and this match was over. The match had Hardy losing clean, which baffles me greatly. Will Triple H bury Kozlov? I’m not sure how this is going to turn out, but I hope they don’t just bury Kozlov and then have Triple H claim he’s the greatest, I’m not sure if I want Kozlov winning the title, but I know that I don’t want this to turn out the way I think it will. Hardy losing clean is weird to me.
