WWE SmackDown! Results (10/22) - Orton Vs. Kane & More (With Video)
Jack Swagger vs. Santino Marella
The announcers called Santino RAW's secret weapon and as the match kicked off there was huge Santino chants. Swagger took control and hit a lot of amateur wrestling holds and take downs early on. Swagger's eagle mascot tried to get in Santino's way only to be cut off by Hornswoggle's music who came running to the ring with a Smackdown flag and Santino hit a Cobra on the eagle and Hornswoggle followed up with a Frogsplash. Midgets, Eagles, Cobra's and Frogs all in a wrestling match. Santino got in the ring and set up for the Cobra on Swagger only to get caught in the Ankle Lock. Marella tapped out and Swagger got the win.
We were treated to a guide on how to keep our lips beautiful by "Dashing" Cody Rhodes.
Alberto Del Rio vs. John Morrison
Alberto Del Rio made his entrance first followed by Morrison who seems rejuvenated in recent weeks. The match began with Del Rio working on Morrison in the corner and began toying with Morrison going a few unsuccessful pin attempts. Morrison got a quick roll up that Alberto was just about to kick out of before getting the upper hand, dodging the diving attacking him in the corner and hitting a nice spinning kick for the two. Del Rio once again took charge with a perfect German Suplex with a bridge but again just a two count. Del Rio went for his signature kick to the face in the corner that Morrison had well scouted and ducked out of and went for Starship pain only to land on Del Rio's knees, Alberto locked in his armbar and Morrison tapped out. In 2010, an armbar is a terrible finishing move, but Alberto Del Rio executes the move so perfectly that its not only a valid move but a believable and great finisher. The announcers remind us that the tag match will be elimination this Sunday unlike last year.
Edge vs. CM Punk
The crowd were firmly behind Edge from the beginning as the two spent the early on trading headlocks, Punk got the first real offense in attacking the Rated R Superstar with shoulder thrusts in the corner until Edge managed to turn things around in his favor, knocking down CM Punk with a big boot only to miss a diving attack on the ropes to once again give CM Punk the advantage. Punk hit a suplex onto the ropes and Edge fell to the outside as we went to a commercial. We came back with Punk attempting a springboard clothesline that Edge managed to catch into a powerslam and used this momentum to unleash a series of attacks on Punk. Punk hit a knee to the stomach and only got the two and began showing his frustration. Edge hit the impaler DDT and likewise only got a two count.
