**SPOILERS** WWE SmackDown! Taping Results
Thanks to Jeff O’Farrell of WrestlingObserver.com for this:
Sylvan pinned Funaki after a DDT. (Velocity Graphics, but no announce team until after this match.)
LOD pinned Nunzio/Vito after the Doomsday Device.
Bob Holly pinned Simon Dean after an Alabama Slam.
Kid Kash pinned Scotty 2 Hotty after a moonsault. Scotty might have been injured here as well. The moonsault was a double jump where Kash stands on the top facing center ring, jumps to face away and then jumps to actually do the moonsault. I could tell when he was in the air it wasn’t going to land right. It looked as if Kash’s knees went straight into Hotty’s arm and/or head. Probably an arm injury based on post match reaction.
Spanky and London over Burchill and Regal when Spanky pinned Burchill. Finish was a double team enziguri from London into a Spanky Stroke for the pin.
Rey over Orton by DQ when Coboy Bob interferes. As the Ortons work over Rey, Matt Hardy comes in and cleans house on the heels.
In ring interview with MNM to do the stupid Top Model tie in. To make a stupid segment short, MNM brings out Michelle, insults her, Michelle slaps Melina, Melina retalliates and back Michelle into corner, which of course brings in the Mexicools to save the day because they love Top Model or something. Mexicools beat up heels, dance with model.
Lashely pinned Jordan with the dominator in a Survivor Series Qualifying match. (Lashley gets on to 5 man squad to represent Smackdown)
Eddie over Kennedy by DQ in another qualifying match. Ref bump allows Eddie to set up Kennedy for a DQ by tossing him a chair right as Charles Robinson gets up. Kennedy goes nuts and then really does hit Eddie with the chair. (Backstage interview segment later on tonight would show Eddie with a concussion).
Pierrothito pinned Buzz Stone (?) Couldn’t quite make out the second guys name, no graphics on screen to verify either. This was horrible and they blew several spots. Nice elbow off the top for the finish though.
They did an interview with the “Dicks” backstage. They really went all out with this one. Some phrases said during this gem were, “Dicks take a pounding”, “cocky”, “rock hard”, “Can LOD beat the Dicks?”, etc. This may come across dumb on TV, but in the arena, everyone was laughing and I just don’t see how they can be heels if they keep doing this. The crowd loved this.
JBL pinned Benoit with the clothesline from hell after Booker T interfered when Benoit seemingly had it won. This was another qualifying match.
Edge vs Batista. Edge did not end up doing anything physical. It was all a set up from Bischoff. After Batista and Edge were in the ring, Bischoff showed up on the big screen and Teddy Long told him to get out. Blah blah blah, Masters jumps Long’s security guards and puts Teddy in the Masterlock. Then they jump in a car and leave. The major faces (including JBL) from Smackdown run out to help Teddy. Teddy tells them to go get the Raw guys. So the faces pile in JBL’s limo and speed off. This sets up the master plan. So Batista is in the ring and Kane’s pyro goes off, he comes down the aisle, then Big Show enters from the other side of the arena. Edge, Show, and Kane gang up on Batista and lay him out to end the show. The non major faces from Smackdown kept coming in one by one and were quickly dumped by either Big Show or Kane.
