to the Holiday Edition of Falls Count Anywhere! My name is
Chris and I’m awesome, thanks for asking!
OK, OK, I didn’t se it. I had an interview with the
founder of the Metro
newspaper for the documentary I’m making, and I forgot
to set the VCR. I did surf the website and saw the highlights
and read the reports.
The Boogeyman beat Nunzio, still doing his
worm-eating gimmick. He’s got a shot at getting over,
especially if he keeps working stiff. Sadly, SuperCrazy
was basically used as a jobber to get Kid Kash over. Crazy
did get some offense, but after he missed a Moonsault, Kash
took over again and didn’t let up. He won with a Brianbuster,
which isn’t on the WWE’s usual list of approved
moves. Wonder what he had to do to get that as a finisher.
Apparently, Melina and Batista had sex in
an effort for Melina to get a deal out of him. It didn’t
work. If I were Batista, I’d hit that too!
MNM had a good match against Rey and Batista.
The fact that Batista is still working while rehabbing himself
is impressive, but I can’t help but think that it’ll
end up hurting Big Dave in the long run. Rey gave Mercury
and Melina the 619, and then Batista gave the DemonBomb
to Mercury for the win.
It was shown that Bobby Lashley is the chosen
one as he destroyed the other possible next star, Paul Burchill.
They pointed out that Lashley dominated the RAW folks at
showed a bunch of Undertaker’s matches from the Hell
in the Cell, to scare Orton. This was a lame series of skits,
because the feud sucks. The sales for Armageddon had been
very low early, though I understand they picked up a bit
day of. This feud is lame and no one wants it to main event,
but with Batista unable to do a real Main Event-style match,
it was the best they had available.
Booker beat Hardy in an OK match, but it
served no booking purpose. It’s sad that Hardy has
been given a match with JBL at Armageddon, based on a single
moment where JBL interrupted. He could be a player.
Bergman directs Smackdown...
Undertaker came out with his Druids, and one turned out
to be Cowboy Bob Orton and this allowed him to get the urn
and that allowed Randy Orton to destroy UT a lot, including
using a chair. I thought this was lame, as we’ve seen
it all before, and this feud is NOT drawing.
Jericho has signed a book deal with Warner by himself. There
is some deal with the WWE that he has, but it’s not
an official contract. Some have said that it’s a match
the offer deal, others have said that it’s nothing
more than the WWE gets the chance to offer a contract to
him before he accepts anything else.
did a 4.1 last week, which was really good considering it
was up from last week. Coach was so bad, though. They need
to get rid of Coach (put him back as an interviewer, since
that can lead to some funny bits) and let Styles go with
Lawler or maybe by himself.
The SmackDown! rating of 2.9 was also a
strong number. The reason may be the lack of quality competition,
but SD! was still 4th out of 6. It was the highest rated
SD! on a Friday except for the Guerrero tribute.
No one’s quite sure why Christy Hemme
got released. Supposedly at least one of the McMahons is
still in the dark.
AJ Styles was sore, but OK. Samoa Joe had
his jaw dislocated, probably on the most brutal dropkick
of all time. Great match, needs to be seen.
Team 3D…you know, the guys who used
to be called the Dudleys, they cancelled all of their All
Japan shows in favor of working TNA. It’s weird, since
there’s more money from Japan than there is in TNA.
Plus, they were given the win in the Champions Carnival.
got to see the Samoa Joe vs. Jay Lethal match on TNA this
weekend, and it was a really nice little match. Joe understands
how to look dominant and still give the other guy offense.
Lethal looked really good. The Kokina Clutch and the Muscle
Buster are both big-time finishers.
