WWE Saturday Morning Slam Recap: Orton & Sheamus Vs. PTP, Jinder Vs. Santino, Mick Foley
- Our narrator welcomes us and says that General Manager Mick Foley will make history today. Randy Orton & Sheamus will face the Prime Time Players from the UK and Foley has another match on the agenda.
- Earlier Today: Mr. Socko pops up into view followed by the Cobra to its left like a Sesame Street skit. The camera pulls back revealing Santino and Mick Foley. Santino puts Foley over as the GM and says The Cobra thinks Socko is doing an excellent job as 2nd in command. Foley answers as Socko. Santino thinks Socko and Cobra should team against 3MB. Foley says, "That'll make them change their tune," and cracks-up at his amusing pun.
Jinder Mahal enters the shot and says they should leave the entertaining to legends like 3MB. Santino quips back that the only legend is that 3MB can sing. Mahal says they are just waiting to rock everybody's socks off. Foley says his sock is still on. Foley says since Jinder has time on his hands until his album drops--wink, wink--then he can face... Santino. Foley says Jinder is a solo act today and that the rest of 3MB is barred from ringside. Santino and Foley have fun with more jokes as Jinder stomps-off.
- Josh Mathews welcomes us to the show as we go to the arena. We hear Alicia Fox on commentary. Santino makes his entrance on a Boris bicycle. Jinder Mahal is out next and he knocks the bike over at ringside.
Jinder Mahal vs. Santino
The bell rings and Santino is mad about his bike. He powers-up like The Ultimate Warrior and charges head-first into Jinder and they lock up. Santino takes him down in an armdrag and then Jinder steps aside as Santino does his running-the-ropes spot. Jinder grounds him with a shoulder and hits s side Russian Leg Sweep as the fans cheer for Santino. Jinder drops an elbow and puts on an abdominal stretch. Santino continues to suffer punishment to his abs and comically calls for a time-out as we go to a commercial.
We're back as Mahal is rolled up out of nowhere for a 2 in the center of the ring. Santino does a kip-up and unloads with strikes and an armdrag followed by a diving headbutt. Santino pulls out the Cobra and connects for the win.
Winner by pin: Santino
Santino leaves up the ramp on his Boris Bike.
- We cut to a poster of Dude Love on the wall and pull back to Foley singing the Dude's theme song. Mick is approached by Sheamus and they shoot the breeze and then break into song: an awful rendition of Johnny Cash's Danny Boy. The camera pans over to reveal Randy Orton with his arms crossed, shaking his head. Sheamus leaves, embarrassed.
- This week's Saturday Morning Spotlight is on Sheamus and Randy Orton. A highlight package is shown of the two Superstars.
- We go to the ring for The Viper's entrance followed by Sheamus. The Prime Time Players are out next.
