InsidePulse’s Live WWE SmackDown! Coverage: Backstage Segments



After a commercial break, including a Heidenreich promo, the Dudleyz bump into Scotty 2 Hotty, who accuses Spike of change. Spike didn’t change — “this is my home.” The only thing that’s changed about him is the CW Title, and he doesn’t need friends like him or Rey Myserio *SLAP* — whoa. That’s how Widro got me to write up this coverage. “What are you gonna do?! Nothing! Just like every… body… else.” (as Funaki, Moore, Doug and Danny Basham stand in the background… doing nothing…)


Kurt Angle goes into GM Long’s office — which has a nice pic of Dr. King and Mr. McMahon o nthe walls — to complain about not getting a cut of the merch sales on Long tells him if you have complaints, go out into the ring and complain, if you’re man enough. Kurt’s worried about Eddie jumping him, but he’s man enough, so he gets tah steppin’.


Tazz sings Rush singing badly…
