**SPOILERS** WWE SmackDown! Results For Friday
By Ryan Clark | May 04, 2010 |
They showed a WWE in Iraq video while changing the ring set.
Right before the show started, Striker took a moment to greet the fans directly behind him. I thought that was classy of him.
Kane v. Swagger is announced for later.
Matt Hardy comes out to a nice pop. He's in jeans and shirt. He has a mic. Says he is here whether he should or shouldn't be. Replay of McIntyre giving him his injury 2 weeks ago and last week. Matt starts to comment; McIntyre comes out on the ramp.
Matt tells Drew to "make him go away". Drew brags about Vince hand picking him as the future of the company. Matt and Drew continue their exchange. They brawl. Refs break it up as a loud Hardy chant breaks out. Drew gets the upper hand and throws the ref down. Tony Garea and Mike Rotundo run down to help the refs.
Teddy Long order Drew to stop. Long suspends Drew but he doesn't stop attacking Matt. Long strips McIntyre of the WWE Intercontinental title! Drew doesn't care. Long then fires Drew! Drew gets in Long's face. Long orders the officials to get Drew "off Smackdown!". Video shows Drew being escorted out of the building by an army of refs. Drew mentions Vince McMahon's name on the way out.
Long is backstage. Matthews interviews him. He doesn't know the status of Hardy, doesn't know what to say about Drew, and doesn't know what to do about the IC title.
MVP v. Luke Gallows (w/CM Punk & Serena)MVP comes out to a huge pop. He's super over. Tron shows replay of MVP/Rey v. SES from last Friday. SES come out to a roar of boos. Lots of MVP chants. Back and forth. MVP had Gallows setup for the Playmaker, Serena distracted him. Gallows looked to end things. Mysterio came from the crowd and jumped Punk and gave him a DDT on the outside. Gallows was distracted and MVP hit a Complete Shot to win the match at about the 5 minute mark.
Post match (cameras off), Punk got the crowd heated.
Cameras on, Punk cut a promo on Rey. Called go a coward and called him out. Mysterio came out to by far the biggest pop of the night this far. Rey tainted Punk "what's wrong Punk? You seem upset". Rey wants to know where the masked mystery man is. Punk denies any knowledge of the masked man. Suggest that Rey has painted drugs on his mask. Great stuff. Rey says only one person is hallucinating and that's Punk.
Rey wants to shave Punk's head. The two talk about their victories. Rey suggest a rubber match. Rey loses, Rey says he'll join SES. But Rey says if Punk loses, Rey gets to cut his hair bald.
Punk says that Rey is having a moment of clarity. Rey says he'll join SES tonight without a fight if Punk shaves his head tonight. Punk turns it down. Rey says that he agrees with the message but not the messenger. Rey suggest that he and Punk can do some good together. Rey tells Punk to lead by example. A shave your head chant starts. Punk says his hair is a symbol of purity. Rey plans seeds in the heads of Luke and Serena. Good promo. Rey promises to put an end to Punk and the SES.
Swagger Fact segment.
Kelly Kelly & Tiffany vs. Michelle McCool & Layla (w/Vickie Guerrero)
Standard divas match. Layla gets the win in about 4 minutes after Michelle with a kick from behind.
Long announces a 4-man tournament for the IC title. 2 of the matches are tonight -- Christian vs. Rhodes & Ziggler vs. Kingston. Winners face next week for the title.
