Welcome eWrestlingNews Readers to the Smackdown Recap!!
SMackdown Oct.25.2013 (Big E’s Hungry, CM Skunk?, More Gringo talk, and Miz lies)
Video Recap: We get shown a recap of last Mondays Raw, and hear the main event for tonight; The Rhodes brother, Miz, and Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton & The Shield.
What will the final Smackdown before Hell in the Cell bring us? Will the Randy Orton & Daniel Bryan feud, along with the Heyman & Punk feud reach a boiling point? Will Goldust and Rhodes stand tell yet again? And will Big Show make another surprise appearance to make his point that WWE management are corrupt, vile excuses of human beings.. Let the verbal word shooting begin!
We begin Smackdown with an interview between Michael Cole and the COO of WWE, Triple H in the middle of the ring. Triple H claims that due to Big Shows Mack Truck interruption on Raw, he’s had to fire 6 people that he believes should have done their job in stopping him. Because you know, people will and should try to stop an actual giant in a huge Mack truck; which is a perfect reason for firing someone, Right? Hunter continues his verbal assault on Big Show calling him irrelevant and definitely fired and that Triple H cannot and will not answer anymore questions about the Big Show. Cole asks about the World Heavyweight Championship match, Hunter builds up Cena and compares himself to his suffering when he had a similar injury. He believes it will be a very exciting match. Hunter gets asked about WWE Championship match and the crowd chants YES YES YES in the background. Hunter begins promoting Orton and the Hell in the Cell match, while attacking Daniel Bryan’s passion and character. But all of a sudden for some reason we abruptly cut to commercial while in mid sentence. Something may have been cut out?
The Usos vs. Eric Rowan and Luke Harper
Erick and Rowan start things fast and just plow through Jimmy, keeping him in their corner delivering punch after punch. Luke bounces Jimmy off the corner and delivers a front slam for the 2 count. Jimmy gets to his feet and runs around Luke and tags in Jay Uso. Jay runs past Luke and attacks Erick on the ropes and gets Luke down with a dropkick. The match goes to the outside where Jimmy jumps from the ring and connects a flying cross body onto Erick. As Jay attempted the same move he gets connected with a big boot from Luke. Luke big boots Jimmy on the outside and Bray Wyatt comes to assist his family. Miz gets up from the announcers table and attacks Bray on the outside, he distracts Erick to chase after him up the ramp and into the back. Luke is left to yell after his partner in the ring, just as he turns around, both Usos connect a super kick for the 1..2..3!
Winners: Jay and Jimmy Uso.
AJ Lee vs. Nikki Bella (Tamina and Brie Occampany AJ and Nikki)
Brie chases after AJ, but AJ wraps around the ropes getting the ref to push Nikki off. Nikki still manages to get AJ down and delivers punch after punch. AJ rolls out and hides behind Tamina as Brie yells at her. As AJ climbs back in, she connects a neck breaker on Nikki off the ropes and gets the 2 count. AJ gets a chokehold on Nikki and keeps her down. She fights her way out with minimal motivation from the crowd and delivers close lines and a dropkick to AJ. As Nikki misses a corner dropkick in the corner to AJ, outside the ring Brie attempts to attack Tamina but ends up getting thrown into the stairs. Inside the ring AJ wraps in the Black Widow on Nikki and gets the Tap Tap Tap.
Winner: AJ Lee
Video Recap: John Cena’s Career recap; showing his first match against Kurt Angle, his thug-nation character, and his careers downfalls, and achievements.
As the announcers speak of Johns past early returns, Bray interrupts on the titon-tron having the camera-man follow him into a dark hallway. At the end of the hallway we see Erick and Luke standing on both sides of a masked wrestler who is beaten down on the floor; with the word “Liar” on his abdomen. They lift the mask off and we see that the beaten masked wrestler is actually The Miz. This is payback for attacking the leader Bray and for not following the Buzzers.. Common Miz, just follow the buzzers.
3MB vs Los Matadores
Before the match could begin, the Real Americans music hits and they stand on the ramp to admire the match. Drew and Diego begin things quickly with punches and a hurricanrana. Heath gets a blind tag as Drew gets Irish whipped; Heath delivers a fast dropkick to Diego for the 2 count. Heath gets Drew in again and they both deliver a double rebound suplex for the 2 count. Fernando gets tagged in as Drew misses a flying elbow in the corner. Fernando connects a cross body and a springboard cross-body. Heath tries to distract Fernando, but he gets connected with a double chop to the head off the top rope. Diego gets tagged in and both Los Matadores connect a double neck breaker on Drew for the 1..2..3!
Jinder comes in to make a point but gets taken out by Los Matadores and El Torito. As Jinder rolls to the outside, El Torito springboards from the ring with a flying leap sault taking out Jinder on the outside.
Winners: Los Matadores
Zeb gets on the mic and pretty much praises Americans and states that El Torito is a kidnapped immigrant who gets made to dress up in a full body bull suit, and works for Los Matadores as a show puppet. The Real Americans stand tall and say “We the People”. They’re getting some decent reaction from the crowd.
Ryback & Paul Heyman vs. CM Skunk
CM Skunk gets introduced by Heyman where he has the exact same entrance as CM Punk. This man will be eaten, alive, quickly; by Ryback, Let’s begin!
First and foremost, CM Skunks hair due is just as a skunks tail, black with a white stripped Mohawk. Skunk attacks first with two, maybe three punches. Ryback though quickly devours skunk, delivering corner shoulder thrusts, close lines, and power bomb after power bomb. Heyman asks for the tag and gets tagged in by Ryback. Heyman grabs a kendo stick from under the ring and begins pounding Skunk continuously. Heyman yells for Ryback to finish him where he delivers the meat hook and Shell Shock to CM Skunk. Heyman gets the 1..2..3 as he stands on CM Skunks face.
Winners: Ryback & Paul Heyman
The Skunk was run over, scraped off, re-positioned and run over again.
Heyman grabs a mic and assures the audience that this Sunday the monster Ryback will utilize all the steel in the cage and grind CM Punks face all over it. Heyman promises that once again he will pin CM Punk and that he is “The Best In The World..”
Backstage Segment: Vikki laughs historically at the name difference between Punk and Skunk. OMG so funny! As she laughs, Big E walks in and asks to be in the main event match considering Miz has been taken out. Big E brings up the point that he is young and hungry for action. Vicki states that she likes the idea but will ask Triple H. Big E wonders if he stepped in the GM’s office or Brad Maddox’s office. He asks “Aren’t you the General Manager of Smackdown?” Vicki reacts very annoyed being referred to as Brad Maddox and allows Big E to be a part of the main event.
Alberto Del Rio makes his way out to cut another promo for his match against Cena this Sunday. ADR claims that Cena is too full of himself and that his over confidence will cost him the match. Del Rio says that he is the Mexican Superman, and that Latin & Mexican people are building monuments in his name, naming children after Alberto Del Rio and many more over confident blabbering. Alberto continues by calling Cena a gringo once again, and claims to put Cena in the cross arm breaker and never let go. ADR compares the WWE gringo’s with the peasants in his country; saying that they have one thing in common, and that is they can kiss his ass.
Fandango vs. The Great Khali
Khali comes out dancing with Natalya and Hornswaggel. We get another dance routine when Fandango and Summer Rae make their way to the ring. Do any of you Fandango?
Fandango starts things off with chest slaps on Khali, but it’s Khali’s size that takes advantage and gets Fandango into the corner. Khali delvers his corner chest slap 2 times before Fandango hangs Khali onto the ropes and connects some kicks in the corner. Khali once again takes advantage but gets distracted by Summer Rae who has climbed the apron. Natalya pulls her off and gets a slap for it by Summer Rae. Natalya goes after Rae and as they enter the ring, Natalya spears her down and the ref calls for the bell. Fandango splits up the girls and gets connected with a Big Chop from Khali.
Winner: Non (No Contest)
