WWE Smackdown 01/09/03


Dawn Marie promises that this week's SmackDown! will be a can't-miss episode. Catch it Thursday night at 8/7 CT on UPN.

Last week, Dawn Marie and Al Wilson's wedding ceremony, as well as their clothes, came off without a hitch! The SmackDown! No. 1 announcer, Funaki, caught up with the blushing bride and her groom as they left in their "Just Married" Limo. Dawn Marie said the happy couple would be videotaping their honeymoon, and they would broadcast some of the racy footage this week on SmackDown!

In addition, Michael Cole and Tazz promised that on this week's SmackDown! they will reveal the 15 SmackDown! competitors who will be part of the Royal Rumble match.

Last week, it was revealed that the Undertaker would be back at Royal Rumble. Will we get anymore clues about the Dead Man's return?

Don't miss SmackDown! when it kicks off at 8/7 CT Thursday night on UPN!

Big Show b Rikishi by pin fall.
-A few good spots. Rikishi did a twisting bump off a Show clothesline, and
Show did some vicious chops. But nothing special. Not a good way to start
the night. Choke slam finished off the phat man. Rikishi had to be helped
to the back. Don't know if he was legit hurt or not. If he is, that makes
it the second injury tonight. And we're just getting started! Following
the match, Heyman said they have a lesson to teach to Brrrrroooooock?Leeessssnarrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Billy Kidman b Matt Hardy (Version 1.0) by pin fall.
-Matt was accompanied by his MFer, Shannon Moore. During the match, Kidman
did a Springboard Shooting Star Press to the outside on both Matt and Shannon. Near the end, Kidman went for the SSP again,
but Shannon interfered. His interference backfired, however, as Matt ran
into him following a reversed Irish whip, and Kidman rolled him up for the
pin. Kidman got almost no reaction when he came out, but was very over when
he won. Matt ordered Shannon to get in the ring, but instead of punishing
him like he did two weeks ago, he forgave him, saying he?d rather Shannon
try and fail than not try at all. He then gave Shannon a hug and they walked
to the back. Good match.

A promo aired on the Tron with Cena and B-2. As usual, Cena did most of
the talking, and B-2 just said, ?Indeed!??er, I mean, ?Booyah!? Kind of
an anti-Tucson promo, kind of an anti-Guerrero promo, but mostly an anti-Hispanic
promo. Didn?t expect that (especially since there were probably just as
many Caucasians in the crowd as there were Hispanics), but I guess it did
its job. It got them the heel heat.

John Cena (w/ B-2) b Chavo Guerrero (w/ Eddie Guerrero) by pin fall.
-B-2 interfered in the match, causing Eddy to attack him. Both men were
ejected from ringside. Cena pinned Chavo using the ropes. Another good
match. Two in a row.

The American Gladia?uh, Team Angle is up next! Haas is scheduled to face
Edge tonight, while Benjamin will be fighting Benoit.

Charlie Haas (w/ Shelton Benjamin and Kurt Angle) b Edge by pin fall.
-Angle cut a promo before the match. Just as the match was about to start,
Benoit?s music played and he came down to ringside. Interference toward
the end of the match. Edge hit Haas with the spear, but Angle reached in
and pulled him off. Benoit took out Angle, but Benjamin nailed him with
a superkick! Hass got the pin after hitting Edge with a modified powerslam.
Three good matches in a row!

Angle and Benjamin ran into the ring to beat down Edge some more. Benoit
came in and they scattered. Benoit grabbed a mic and cut a short promo about
the Royal Rumble. Staredown between Team Angle and Edge and Benoit. The
referees came out and got Angle, Haas, and Edge out of there. Once they
were gone, Benjamin entered the ring and the next match began!

Benoit b Shelton Benjamin by disqualification.
-Benoit hit Benjamin with the Swandive Headbutt and then locked in the Crossface,
but Angle came down and distracted the referee while Benjamin tapped. Benoit
tried to go after him, but Angle hit him with his crutch in plain view of
the referee, causing the DQ. Despite the DQ ending, still a good match.
That?s four a row! I love Smackdown. Haas then ran down to assist Team
Angle in beating up Benoit. Edge tried to make the save, but was taken out.
Benoit held his own for a moment, but was eventually overwhelmed.

A Bill DeMott promo airs on the Tron where he bashes University of Arizona
basketball. I hope security escorts him to his car. Crowd starts a ?U of
A? chant.

Bill DeMott b Shannon More by pin fall.
-Bill DeMott again!? Why? What did we do to deserve this? Matt Hardy did
commentary. This match got a rather loud ?boring? chant, and did it ever
deserve it. I?m guessing they?ll edit that out in post-production. DeMott
won with the same powerbomb he used on Velocity, and had the same reaction
after the three-count. After he left, Matt helped Shannon up?and then hit
him with the Twist of Fate!

Eddie Guerrero b B-2 by pin fall.
-Cena and B-2 came out and started rapping their way to the ring, much like
they did in the earlier match, but this time, Los Guerreros attacked them
from behind! Match was okay, but had a couple of blown spots. Latino Heat
won with the Frog Splash.

A-Train tells Heyman and Show to stay away from Lesnar until he?s through
with him. According to the main event graphic on the Tron, Albert weighs
350 lbs. Without the hair, he weighs 275.

Brock Lesnar b A-Train by pin fall.
-Not bad for a hoss match. Lesnar wins with the F5.

Lesnar grabs a mic and challenges Show. Show and Heyman start to come to
the ring?but then they decide to head for the parking lot. Lesnar is pissed,
and he decides to take his aggression out on A-Train. Here?s where our third
and final injury of the night occurs. Brock lifts A-Train up for another
F5, but when he brings him down, instead of spinning A-Train around and dropping
him face down, he accidently flips him over and drops him right on his head!
Referees ran down to help him as Brock left. He was down for several minutes,
but eventually he got up and walked out of the arena under his own power.
The fans cheered him as he left. Tony Chimmel thanked us for coming. Show?s

It appears that they are bringing him back as the Dead Man again for the Rumble.

I almost thought they were going to do the fabled Big Show vs Rikishi Cheeseburger on a Ladder Match.

Show would win, height advantage! But it would have to be more than one cheeseburger. Hee hee.

Cheeseburger on a Pole Ladder Match would be better.

That s how was ... eh...alright.

You can tell that there are guys who are underused(ie any of the Cruisers), and guys who shouldn't be where they are(Show).

Angle v Benoit at the Rumble? I can't wait..

What's up with the Undertaker? In one promo it seems that he's coming back as the dead man but then in the other one it appears he'll just be the same old redneck. I'm not a big fan of his either way these days but original character was much better then the revamp he's had the last couple of years.

Makes no sense to turn Shannon into a face (not like he's a true heel either) but it's not like they're going to give him a push after that. more wasted cruiser-weight talent.

I hope to god they bring back the Undertaker as the dead man as a final story line for ol' taker before he retires from the ring. Wasn't it suppose to happen like two years ago anyhow?

How bout both shows being good for once or dare I say great? I don't even think that word's in Vince Mcmahon's vocabulary unless it's his response to his own latest idea.
