“Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…”
We are LIVE in....where are we? Oh, we're in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We get a recap of Kane's dastardly deeds over the last few weeks, leading up to the match last night. Including Eve's little hot moment of Cena lust, the wheelchair fall of doom, the little girl that cared and a few other things that sucked. We then go to the backstage area where Eve is talking to The Bellas. Bellas call Zack a great guy and ask if she cares. Eve laughs it off. She wants to correct the Bellas. They were not friends, Zack thought they were friends. People all over the world are talking about me now. Zack is an idiot, he didn't even get to first base. The Bellas find it deplorable (which is hilarious). Eve says she's got the big fish hooked. Just like she used Zack Ryder, she's going to use John Cena. Well alright. She claims that Cena is going to try and apologize to her but she's going first. She wants the Bellas to film her walking into Cena's locker room
Oh but here is Mr. High and Mighty hisself. He removes his hat as Eve shows her emotional range. Cena laughs then walks away, leaving Eve to look like she just woke up in an unknown place.
We begin the in ring portion of the show with Cena's grin and his music playing. He heads down to the ring, presumably to speak. Before he can, crying ,b>Eve comes down with a microphone. The crowd boos. She wants to explain. She claims that her words were taken out of context. Cena says that first of all, if she's going to talk, she needs to speak up. Cena tells the crowd that she wants to explain, but he wants to let the crowd know what she said back. Eve here has apparently been sipping the skankjuice and her plan is to use her assets to further her career. Eve calls them friends, then Cena says that because of her he lost a broskii for a hoski. This gets a hoski chant. Cena gets so excited that he's got crowd interaction, so he begs for the hoski chant. Eve says she can explain. They were jost joking. She says "we" which is interesting." Cena says Eve should be waiting for the biggest fish, for The Rock. She is disingenuous, egotistical, and are perfect for each other...they're both scandelous bitches! Eve gets on her knees and cries...haha. Too funny for words, here. Anyways, she gets all sad and stuff so Cena feels bad and tries to pick her up. Eve then goes all Single White Female on his ass and tries to make out with Cena. Cena calls for secuuurrrrity and tells Eve he is disease free and wants to keep it that way....Eve is left in shambles...think Rihanna, without the bruises. They leave the camera on Eve for far too long as the crowd. The crowd wants Ryder, which is a good sign for him, and Eve continues crying up the ramp in the arms of the refs. Seriously, why can't we cut to a commercial? Finally...
This leads to an Undertaker package. Taker is asking for vengeance, nearly chanting it. He claims that every story has it. Clips of the epic haircut are shown as Taker repeats the word "Vengeance" so much you'd think the PPV was back. He claims that Triple H's denials are unacceptable and Trips fate is sealed. Every story has an ending, I will write yours. Tonight.
It appears that Henry was given a match tonight due to Teddy Long suspending him and Henry coming to the aid of Johnny last night.
Match 1: Sheamus vs. Mark Henry
Lockup to start and henry sends Sheamus to the corner. The ref tries to break it up but Henry hits a right then a headbutt and a boot to Sheamus. Sheamus tries to fight back with a boot of his own so Henry fires back with a haymaker then a clothesline. Henry goes for another, but Sheamus ducks and clips the leg then hits a high knee and tries for a whip. henry overpowers and sends Sheamus to the corner, so Shemaus lifts the knees and Henry runs into them. He goes up top and hits a shoulderblock then a pin for 1...2..NO! Sheamus does the ol chest beating thing on the ropes but Henry back elbows out of it then drops a forearm to the back of Sheamus and sends him to the corner. Splash in the corner! Henry hits some shoulders! He goes for a clothesline, but Sheamus gets out and hits some rights. Think of that happening twice. Sheamus with some boots to Henry. The ref tries to stop Sheamus but he goes at it again. Sheamus beats his chest, looks for the Brogue kick but Henry dodges it and knocks Henry to the corner. He hits another corner splash and sets up for the World's Strongest Slam. Sheamus hops out of it and hits the Brogue Kick! Pin! 1...2...3!!
A good match considering the amount of weight in there. I enjoyed it, even though it was short. This also means that they are firmly behind Sheamus, in case you didn't know.
In the back, Johnny Ace and Otunga are talking about the moment that he had during the PPV last night. A knock on the door is heard, and here's Teddy Long. He shakes hands with Johnny but Teddy says this isn't his home and he wouldn't be hanging out with Otunga and Johnny if it were his home. Johnny says that him taking over Smackdown was Otunga's idea, not his, but he likes the idea. Teddy says he likes the idea, too. He thinks that one GM is a great idea. He says to ask the Universe who would do the better job. Ace says he doesn't care about the crowd. All he cares about is the Board. He then mentions how much taller he is than Teddy. Do you know what a pile of compost is? It's a stack of manure and I didn't know they could stack it that high. They mention the main event tonight, a battle royal of 10 men (5 from Raw and 5 from SD). Teddy says that anyone on the Smackdown roster is better than Otunga. Ace says Otunga will face anyone on the Smackdown Roster. Teddy says ok, then calls Otunga Pee-Wee Herman's fair god-momma. hahaha.
