Yus “The Bus” Friedman on WWE SMACKDOWN & RAW 4.13.2011

Posted: April 14, 2011 in WWE Raw, Smackdown Pay-Per-Views


Del Rio vs. Edge and Christian Argue – Del Rio claims that his car being destroyed isn’t about the money his cars r like his children to him. Edge comes out and says if his cars are like his children he should love them unconditionally no matter what they look like. Then edge sprays paint on the car. Del Rio asks for a rematch. Edge says Christian beat Del Rio twice and is the true # 1 contender. Edge and Christian head to the ring to fight Brodus and Del Rio but teddy long stops them. Teddy long says Christian vs. Del Rio for the #1 contender spot to the world heavyweight championship vs. edge at extreme rules in edges specialty a ladder match.

2 of 3 Falls Wrestlemania Rematch -Santino Marella, Kofi Kingston, Big Show & Kane vs. Ezekiel Jackson, INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMP Wade Barrett, WWE TAG CHAMPS Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel (The Corre). Corre did a good job keeping the faces on their side of the ring. Nice work especially by Barrett. Kofi got the first fall on Justin Gabriel with a high cross body. 2nd fall Barrett hits wasteland on Santino Marella after Santino got greedy with his cobra and then Barrett high footed his head. Kane tries for a chokeslam on Barrett but the rest of the Corre gang up on him for the disqualification. Big Show, Kofi Kingston and Santino Marella come to Kane’s side. Kingston takes out Wade Barrett with Trouble in Paradise; Kane chokeslams Heath Slater; Show hits his Knockout Punch on Justin Gabriel; and Santino, big show and Kane team up to chokeslam Ezekiel Jackson.

Cody Rhodes vs. Trent Baretta – Nice short little match great showing by Cody but I’m always disappointed when he doesn’t pull out the rolling knee and the Alabama slam but he wins cleanly with cross Rhodes. After the match he starts bashing Trent in the face with his protective mask. Mysterio comes out for the save. Cody escapes.

Edge and Christian hanging out in the locker room talking about the #1 contender’s match where edge wishes Christian good luck. Christian hopes edge means that after extreme rules. Edge leaves and walks back in on Christian staring at the world heavyweight championship.

LayCool vs. Beth phoenix & Kelly Kelly – Beth phoenix & Kelly Kelly win in a short crappy match due to stupid crap betrayal shenanigans of LayCool. McCool thinks Layla snubbed her by lying outside faking an injury that was real when Beth tossed McCool into Layla previously. Then McCool purposely snubs Layla. And they lose as a result.

Michael Cole in the ring. Makes fun of what he did to J.R. on raw Monday night. He brings out his trainer and a man who only cares about his well being jack swagger. Swagger pushes Cole up saying only Cole with athleticism from head to toe and higher intelligence could earn a dominating victory in his first Wrestlemania match & become the new Mr. Wrestlemania. Cole says in a fair fight no one in the locker room could beat swagger. They do a victory lap. Until they are interrupted by Sin Cara Sin Cara takes out swagger and sends him to the floor leaving while pointing at swagger.

Backstage LayCool needs couples therapy?

Alberto Del Rio vs. Christian

Courtesy of WWE.com:

With 11-time World Champion Edge sitting in with the SmackDown announce team, Christian battled Alberto Del Rio for the right to become the No. 1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title and take on The Rated-R Superstar at Extreme Rules. When Captain Charisma became momentarily distracted by Edge’s Spear to Brodus Clay outside the ring, Del Rio seized the moment, leveling his opponent with a kick to the back of the head to pick up the monumental three-count. Del Rio will now face The Ultimate Opportunist in a Ladder Match at Extreme Rules.


The Show opened up with Michael Cole coming out. He was introduced as Award Winning broadcast journalist, and the only undefeated superstar in the WWE Michael Cole.

John Cena coming to the ring saying he and the rock made history by challenging each other to a match at wm28.Icon vs. Icon Generation vs. Generation. He says it will be the greatest spectacle in all of sports entertainment. Cena Says it’s such a big match it needs one year for the WWE Universe to digest it. He says it will be for the WWE championship b/c if it’s the biggest match on the biggest stage it has to be for the biggest prize. So he better get started b/c in order for that to happen one of them have to be WWE champion. So he wants to make another Wrestlemania like moment and challenge the Miz to a rematch tonight for the WWE championship.

Then Randy Orton Comes Out. And says that with all due respect he actually won his match at WM27 and cena can blame who he wants the rock for instance and he can make as many matches as he wants for next year but he should step aside and let him challenge the Miz for the WWE championship at WM28.

Then John Morrison comes out and says pardon the interruption but Orton and Cena getting WWE title shots is old news and it’s his turn. B/C Cena vs. Orton over the # 1 contenders spot is a  good show but not as good as it is now that john Morrison is involved. I like that there is a chance Morrison is getting a push although I thought he would work better as a heel. Then again the draft is coming up in 2 months I’m guessing so maybe he will fill Edges spot as the top face and win his first World title on Smackdown.

Vickie comes to the ring and says somebody should have a championship opportunity but no Morrison because she pinned him a few weeks ago so she should get the WWE title shot. She was just kidding it should be Dolph. Ziggler says that he didn’t come to Raw to waste his time with people like Snooki. He says he is obviously the most talented superstar in the ring right now. And more importantly he has never face the Miz for the WWE championship so the line starts with him. Maybe Ziggler should check when he debuted on raw oh wait I’ll tell you it was March 7th a month ago and he wants a title shot I love Mr. Ziggler and all but expecting a title shot after a month with wins over Morrison and Snooki I don’t think so.  At Least he was nice enough to offer them all title shots after he wins the WWE championship.

Last and definitely least R-Truth the 2x, 2x, 2x NWA-TNA world champion enters the ring. Truth is r-truth never got a one on one WWE title match on any show. Ziggler says there is a reason for that.

Cole gets Email from Gm on his IPAD. Gm says they all gave acceptable arguments on who should be the #1 contender and he makes a first time ever 5 man Gauntlet Match.

Freaky Awesome Kong Vignette where she scary laughs and flicks the head of a Barbie doll which I can only guess symbolizes the WWE Divas. Finally Awesome Kong is coming. I’ve been waiting since they signed with WWE on December 29th 2010. Finally someone that can compete with Beth phoenix and squash Michelle McCool.

WWE DIVAS TITLE – Brie Bella w/Nikki Vs. Eve Torres = brie Bella wins the divas title = Brie won a divas battle royal to get this shot but I remember her getting her title shot already. To be honest when i saw brie win my first response was “why? I don’t care and Okay.” I guess the only saving grace is that awesome Kong is coming.  We can only dream of yesteryear when Trish, Lita, Chyna, Ivory and Molly Holly and Gail Kim 1.0 were around.

Eve thinks all the divas are bitches. Gail and Nattie come to talk to eve and she turns them away saying all divas are the same looking for their next opportunity at the divas championship. Well yes that’s how it works in competitive sports everyone wants the big prize, the championship, the gold. Go cry me a river eve.

Sin Cara vs. Primo – Good match back and forth. Sin Cara pulled out the victory. First thing I thought Primo nice. If it’s one thing primo does not lack it’s in ring ability. That I most likely b/c it is in his blood (i.e. Carlos colon sr. is his father). A lot of back and forth exciting and fast paced the only worry I had was that primo got a hell of a lot of offense and I was afraid Sin Cara would lose. Especially after falling off the top rope to the floor. But in the end sin Cara hit a top rode finisher for the win it’s a move that john Morrison uses but not from the top rope. It’s called a C4 and he did it off the top rope.

The Corre having relationship problems – The Corre is in the ring and Barrett recaps the events of last week that cena and the rock were making history making the match for wm28 and the corre tried to make history of their own. Wade Barrett says he used to see them as equals, but if they can’t hold up their end of the deal then there’s no point in continuing together. Gabriel grabs the mic out of Barrett’s hand and then Gabriel gets offended to Barrett’s words and says his 450 splash has taken out more people on the roster than anyone. He says he is the most talented member of The Corre and he’s a 3 time tag champion. Slater says we are three time tag champions and no one can take that away from them not Barrett, not nexus and not the corre Jackson grabs the mic out of Barrett’s hand and Jackson says he made Corre legit but gets cut off by Santino’s music though.

The Apple Debuts – Santino comes out with Evan Bourne, Daniel Bryan & World Strongest Man. Santino says if they’re the Corre then they’re the A.P.P.L.E.: Allied People Powered (by) Loathing Everything (you stand for). This fight is for Kozlov so APPLE POWERS UNITE! They challenge The Corre to a match.

The Corre vs. Team Apple – standard Eight-man tag match. Gabriel botched his over the top rope senton. Santino sets up for the Cobra. But he gets kicked in the head by Gabriel. Slater hits the Inverted reverse DDT for the finisher.

Cole Matthews and Lawler talk about Lawler vs. Swagger and here’s JR to be in Lawler’s corner. Cole makes fun of him saying he can’t bend down and some other stupid jokes. JR tries to break into the Cole Mine. When that fails he hits Cole with his hat. Jerry gets up to take out Swagger.

Jerry Lawler vs. Jack Swagger – If Lawler wins he gets a rematch with Cole at Extreme Rules and gets to pick the stipulations. If Swagger wins then Cole never has to face Lawler again. Okay 5 minute match back and forth till a distraction by J.R. taking out Cole allows Lawler to roll up swagger for the win.

Cole signs his death sentence – Cole shoats at Swagger post match, blaming him for everything and saying he paid good money for his help. It was Swagger’s fault that he lost. Then he slaps Swagger and runs. Jerry Lawler grabs the mic and says we need to talk about Extreme Rules. He makes the match: JR/Lawler vs. Swagger/Cole. Jerry reminds Swagger that Cole just slapped him in the face.

We get a video of wrestlers talking about WM 27 Undertaker vs. HHH.

Edge says he might ramble on. He says many people think the WWE doesn’t hurt and there is a lot of smoke and mirrors. But anybody in the locker room or that’s laced up boots knows it’s painful. 8 years ago edge broke his neck but b/c of it edge knew he was wrestling on borrowed time. Edge has been in a lot of pain but been feeling pain in his arms. He got tests MRI says he needs to retire. Not his choice. Edge cries says it’s tougher than he thought it would be. Crowd chants Thank You Edge. Edge talked to Christian who has been his best friend for 27 years. Edge is mad at his body b/c he thinks there are people who he’s letting down. He is unhappy he’s not retiring on his terms, but Christian reminded him his whole career has been on his terms. Says he’s still a fan of the WWE. He talks about going to Maple Leaf Gardens with Christian and seeing guys like Demolition, the LOD and Hulk Hogan. Then he went to Wrestlemania 6 and saw Hulk Hogan vs. the Ultimate Warrior and said he’s doing this one day. Fast forward many years and he was in there against the Undertaker. Now he’s won more titles than anyone in WWE history and had his last match in a main event at Wrestlemania and gets to retire as World Heavyweight Champion, he couldn’t dream of a better way to go out. Edge has been in this business for 19 years and he grew up in front of these people. He runs through his career from running through the streets of New York in a trench coat that was way too big for him to a pseudo vampire in the brood to doing posing for the benefits of those with flash photography, to being one of the most despised guys in WWE history (getting thrown in the Lon Island sound. To a live sex celebration (“luckily with Lita and not Vickie Guerrero”) and he hopes that he’s earned the fans’ respect and everyone in the locker rooms respect. He tried to give the fans as much as he could every single night and the fans gave it right back.

He will miss the adrenaline rush he gets when he hears his entrance music. He’s going to miss this and that being said tomorrow he doesn’t have to wear tights and tonight he gets to eat a whole lot of ice cream. If he was asked if he’d do it all again, all the injuries, the pain & getting hired by J.R. he would do it in a heartbeat. He says thank you, does his pose on the stage and his music plays him out. Very tear jerking.

Miz heads to ringside to join the commentary booth. I thought It would be funny if he went into the Colemine, but I guess he wouldn’t have room in there for him and riley.

5-Man Gauntlet Match – John Cena vs. Randy Orton vs. R-Truth vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. John Morrison:

Courtesy of WWE.com                                                                                                                                               Five Superstars. One opportunity. The math added up to one grueling Five-Man Gauntlet Match as John Cena, R-Truth, John Morrison, Dolph Ziggler and Randy Orton vied for the opportunity to compete against WWE Champion The Miz at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view.

First up in the random selection, Randy Orton and Dolph Ziggler squared off. During their match, members of The New Nexus, sans CM Punk, distracted The Viper long enough for Ziggler to wrap up a pin. Afterward, the men who had each been punted in the skull by Orton lashed his beaten frame with a vengeful ferocity.

Entering next, R-Truth showed the bleach blond bomber what was up by eliminating him in fourth place. Truth’s former tag team partner, John Morrison, then jumped into the action. Leveraging his familiarity with The Shaman of Sexy, the rapping Superstar overcame the athletic assault.

Finally, it was John Cena’s turn. The Cenation Commander-in-Chief set aside his friendship with Truth and assailed him with a barrage of heavy hits. To his credit, though, Truth held steady, unwilling to relinquish the golden opportunity before him. As the two traded blows, however, they were attacked by WWE Champion The Miz and his lackey, Alex Riley, leading to a double disqualification.

Although the WWE Champion claimed there was no No. 1 contender, the Raw General Manager had other ideas. The anonymous GM announced that there were now two No. 1 contenders for the WWE Championship and that the match at Extreme Rules would be a Triple Threat Match between WWE Champion The Miz, Truth and Cena. Afterward, The Cenation Commander-in-Chief punished Riley, and Truth tackled Miz. Then the rapping Superstar and Cena found themselves in a shoving match before Truth exited the ring.
