WWE Friday Night Smackdown 1/1/09 Results and Review First Smackdown of 2010

We are in a new year, and with that comes another year of wrestling updates here on the site that only 3 people read. I’ve redone the template, I’ve removed 6 ad spots, I’ve improved the loading time, and I will be working on some subtle things. I have now installed an “amazon” tower in the sidebar of this site. If you ever feel like helping me out, please buy something. I’m in the middle of trying to figure out what to do about my cable television or switching to direct tv for a year, because my last cable bill was nearly $100! This site does not pay me, and without a job (still) I’m having a hard time getting wrestling in the long term. Until then, I still am working hard to bring you this blog. The goal for Sir Jorge’s WWE Blog is to get a DOT COM, but that might not happen, since that was the goal for this site since I started it in 2007.

Also, I’m going to try and be a little more in depth in my reviews, but we’ll see what happens.

Lastly, before the results and review, please leave comments. There’s not much else I can ask for but comments. If you’re reading the site, give me feedback, and I’ll try in this new year to comment back and have a “blog post” called “COMMENTS” and we can have a discussion. Maybe I’ll even start a podcast…we’ll see.

WWE Friday Night Smackdown Review 1/1/09 Review

The show opened up with C.M Punk and Luke Gallows coming down the stage to a chorus of boo’s. C.M Punk is golden on the mic, he doesn’t seem to be trying hard at all, at least it doesn’t feel that way from my perspective. He started to make fun of people at ringside, and talked about resolutions. C.M Punk said and I loved the quote, “I Will Beat Everyone Up in this Arena if I have to!” that was the best thing I’ve seen in a long time. Punk said that next week he’s going to save someone from the audience and go city by city and save people.

This is a great thing, if you think about it. Punk could be growing a stable, can you imagine that, a real stable in 2010? It’s like Raven’s Flock all over again! I hope it really does go that way. You might also notice that Punk dropped names like “Youth of Today” and “Minor Threat” two very big straighedge hardcore bands from the 80’s.

Matt Hardy defeated Cm Punk in a beat the clock match at 7:20

These two are no strangers to each other, and Hardy got a huge pop, which was definitely on time considering Punk just gave one of the best Heel promo’s I’ve heard in a long time.

Cm Punk took control of a good majority of this match. Punk has definitely been growing as a wrestler, as his timing is getting a lot more methodical, and dare I say technical. I used to hate seeing his matches, but now they seem to make a lot of sense when compared to Dean Malenko, Chris Benoit, and Bret Hart. While he doesn’t focus on a leg, he does seem to follow up big moves with some rest holds to wear down his opponent. Hardy is no new comer though, and he waited for a mistake by punk, and turned this match around with his fast paced connective move set. It wasn’t enough though, as Punk delivered his GTS and Hardy was out for the three count.

After the match, Luke Gallows took to beating Hardy and delivered his finisher. Punk and Gallows then looked on victoriously, which was quite good. These two and possibly more in 2010 can prove to be the next Raven (ECW or WCW 97 era Raven).

Kane vs Dolph Ziggler had their time expire in their beat the clock match

When’s the last time Kane was relevant? He’s so slow in ring, although he’s been ramping it up a little, he’s just not that good anymore. I don’t like him, there I said.

Ziggler was like a man possessed in this match. He immediately lunged at Kane, and fought fast and hit Kane with everything he had, alongside quick pin attempts. Kane had a few shots in early on, but Ziggler was moving quickly and trying to win this thing in record time. Kane was definitely looking very weak in this match, as he was getting worked by a faster Ziggler, but despite all of Ziggler’s attempts to beat Kane, he couldn’t do it in the time allotted. Ziggler for not being a former champion, really made Kane look like small, and after the match was over he hit his finisher called “The Zig Zag”. This match was all Ziggler, I liked it, and hope Kane is on his way out this year.

They played a promo of Sheamus and John Cena from Monday Night Raw and they tried to make it epic, with color variations and different edits, but it didn’t look epic at all. It was tiring, and a stupid match with a stupid finish. The Sheamus and Cena feud is the worst fued idea in a long time, and I don’t care for it. In fact, WWE is going to have to do a lot to make me believe that those two are entertaining. I’ve seen Cena thrown into lights, off of limo’s and fight Eddie Guerrero in a street fight back stage, yet one stupid looking kick and it’s over? So lame.

The Great Khali defeated The Carolina Panther

The Carolina Panther is nothing more than a jobber with a Carolina Panther’s jersey. It was seriously the worst jobber idea I’ve seen in a long time. Khali came in, dropped the jobber, pinned him and won, that was it. Man, I wish I only had to work 5 minutes a week and get six figures.

Have you seen the trailers for the new Marine film? Ted Dibiase has the charisma of a wet blanket. Man, he sucks at acting or showcasing any sort of emotional response. He’s worst than Kennedy…remember the last time a wwe film flopped? Someone got fired. Will Dibiase get fired? Man, I hope so, if it means no more WWE straight to dvd sequels.

Drew McIntyre defeated John Morrison via disqualification

This match had a lot of offense, both men didn’t want to let up. McIntyre was definitely looking less strong for once, and wasn’t running over Morrison in this match like he rolled over many of his opponents in the past. Morrison fired off some great offense and was fighting hard to get a foothold in this match up. McIntyre getting desperate pulled the turnbuckle off and this thing looked to be getting dangerous, but the ref was there to try and stop things. In the mix, Morrison got disqualified because of McIntyre and that led to the end of the match.

After the match, this feud started to get good. Morrison attacked McIntyre on his way back to the locker room and the two brawled, causing a ton of ref’s to come out and stop the two men from fighting. You gotta love when brawls break out, that’s just a classic moment in professional wrestling. Many feuds of the past started with brawls over the title after matches.

Mickie James defeated Beth Phoenix

First and foremost, I’m tired of podcasts and wrestling websites talking about how it’s so bad that they are calling Mickie James fat. She did gain a few pounds last year and was slowing down in ring. If a person/girl watching the wwe really has problems with weight and only goes further down the rabbit hole into bad eating and weight gain, maybe they have bigger problems. I have no problems calling Mickie James “Piggy James” or that’s she’s fat, it’s PRO WRESTLING not a role model for behavior and am sick of people talking about it like it’s something that is truly going to be a trigger for people that watch it.

My explanation of that above took longer than this match. Mickie James won after Michelle McCool accidentally kicked Beth Phoenix at ringside. Mickie Wins, and she still has a little tummy to lose, just saying.

Michelle McCool and Layla attacked after the match was over, and Beth Phoenix got involved, turning her from heel to face? Weird.

The divas division sucks. The post match was better than the actual match. The best part was that a fat Mickie James was laid out cold in the middle of the ring. Maybe this will be the death of the divas division.

Rey Mysterio defeated Chris Jericho in a beat the clock match with 1 second left 7:19

This match was actually interesting, as Jericho and Mysterio made quite a go for it. Jericho had a lot of control early on, but Mysterio turned things around a few times. Jericho reversed the 619 into the Walls of Jericho, and after that wasn’t enough, Mysterio went off the top rope only to get caught into the Code Breaker! I thought this match was all over, but nope, a small package roll up and three seconds later Rey Mysterio won this match.

While I thought the match was good, I have to ask something that no one is addressing. What good are finisher maneuvers? They never seem to pin anyone. Jericho not only hit Mysterio with a Codebreaker and the Walls of Jericho, they weren’t enough. Oh well.

Mysterio pins Jericho with only 1 second left in the timer.

Batista vs R Truth the time ran out before Batista could win the match

Mysterio was ringside for this match up. I know we’re in the world of good guys and bad guys, but the ending was awesome.

Batista was definitely in control throughout this match. Truth got some good hard shots in, but it seemed that Batista was just powerful and ready for it. Truth made it interesting though, but every time he got close to getting a good move in, Batista had a quick counter. Case in point, the sick sideslam out of a Truth’s momentum off the ropes.

Mysterio did what I thought was the only good way to end this thing. Rey Mysterio got involved at the last second and cost Batista the #1 contender match! Batista was about to close the deal and get a shot at Undertaker, but nope, Rey Mysterio showing that he wants the belt, pulled out the ref! The clock counted down and it was all said and done. A great finish, if you ask me…and no one did.

Mysterio seemed to be the #1 contender, but then out came Vickie Guerrero. She announced that Rey Mysterio must wrestle Batista next week and the winner will face the undertaker for the title at the Royal Rumble.
