WWE SmackDown Results - 04 August 2005
By Andy Steven | August 06, 2005
Smackdown for August 4th opened with a recap of Eddie Guerrero revealing Rey Mysterio's "secret" last week. Guerrero told the world that Rey's son, Dominic, was actually the child of Guerrero and a female he had an affair with when he was separated from his wife.
Rey Mysterio came to the ring to be the guest on Christian's new talk show segment, "The Peep Show". Christian talked about what happened last week, but Rey interrupted him, saying Christian had promised him that Eddie Guerrero would be there. Rey demanded that Christian bring out Eddie Guerrero. Christian introduced Eddie Guerrero, but Guerrero appeared on the screens, instead of coming to the ring. Eddie had a book titled "Eddie's Bedtime Stories", and was wearing his new "I'm Your Papi!" shirt. Guerrero said he was going to tell "Chapter 2" of his bedtime story. Rey yelled at Eddie to shut up from the ring. Eddie stopped reading, and said Rey was being rude, and needed to mind his manners. Guerrero promised to finish Chapter 2 by the end of the night, and remarked that Rey would "really like it". Christian then remarked "I think you will like this too" and hit Mysterio in the back of the head with the microphone. Christian then laid out Mysterio with the Unprettier.
The announcers reviewed the previous segment.
Jillian Hall appeared backstage for an interview. Hall said she had a blemish on her face, and it created a "blemish on her soul". However, Hall said she still carried herself with dignity, unlike others. Hall had the camera focus on her blemish, and said that fans should not look at her blemish when she comes to the ring. Hall said she was a "fixer" and that she was going to be fixing things for MNM. As she walked off, she went past Booker T and Sharmell. Booker T, after looking at the blemish, said "Tell me I just didn't see that".
MNM (Joey Mercury & Johnny Nitro, with Melina and Jillian Hall) vs. Chris Benoit & Booker T, with Sharmell. Booker and Benoit started off working over Nitro, but Nitro backed Benoit into his corner and tagged in Mercury. Benoit hit some chops on Mercury, but Mercury caught him with a boot to the face, only to then run into a Benoit backbreaker. Benoit kicked away a backdrop attempt, decked Mercury, then slammed him and hit a powerdrive elbow. Benoit went for a Sharpshooter, but Nitro pulled Mercury to the floor to regroup as they went to break.
Back from break, Booker was chopping Mercury, who tagged in Nitro. Booker gave Nitro a hiptoss and a back kick for a two count, then delivered a reverse neckbreaker for a two count. Benoit tagged in and hit a knee to the gut, then a German suplex. Mercury ran in, and was given a German suplex. Benoit gave Nitro another German suplex, then wet him up on the top rope for a back superplex. Melina distracted the referee, and Mercury hooked Benoit's leg so Nitro would land on top of the superplex. Mercury tagged in and stomped Benoit in a corner. Nitro choked Benoit with the tag rope, then hit a running knee to the gut when he was tagged in. Nitro covered Benoit twice for two counts.
Benoit fought out of the corner, but Nitro gave him a drop toe hold and tagged in Mercury, who hit an elbowdrop for a two count. Nitro and Mercury kept Benoit on their side of the ring, and Nitro worked over Benoit with a chinlock. Benoit armdragged out of it and gave Nitro a released German suplex. Mercury ran in, but Benoit gave him an enzugiri and made the hot tag to Booker T. Booker cleaned house with punches and clotheslines. Booker gave Nitro a superkick and Mercury a Bookend, but Nitro broke up the cover. Benoit threw Nitro to the floor and put him in the Crippler Crossface. In the ring, Booker gave Mercury a flapjack and did the spinarooni. Booker went for the ax kick, but Melina grabbed his leg. Sharmell chased Melina into the ring, but Jillian tackled Sharmell. Booker pulled Jillian off of Sharmell, but that allowed Mercury to roll up Booker and hook the ropes for the pin at the fourteen minute mark. Winners: MNM.
