See how the final night of many draftees tenure on Smackdown went…
Kofi Kingston defeated Chris Jericho in a good match.
Jericho is just jobbing to everyone. Well, at least Kofi can use the rub.
Backstage, a newly minted face Big Show punches out Chris Jericho.
Punching out Miz and Jericho will get him over. I can see this being the best face run of his career.
Chavo Guerrero cuts a promo about being back with Vickie, but Kane comes out and chokeslams him.
Still comedy for Chavo, and I prefer Kane doing this to go nowhere feuds.
Cody Rhodes defeated John Morrison in a long match.
I’m curious to see how Cody did here. If it was good, he’s probably in store for a big push.
Edge comes out to talk about loving the fans. He says he loves them. This draws out Christian who calls him a liar, and Edge agrees, saying he used the fan. Christian wants a match, but Edge says no and they brawl.
I’m sure this segment was great and cements Edge as a heel for those who were confused after Raw.
Kelly Kelly and Beth Phoenix defeated Layla El and Michelle McCool with Kelly pinning Layla.
Starting the new superstar off with a win.
Dolph Ziggler cut a promo about Hornswoggle.
If this leads to Ziggler vs. Finlay, that’s fine, but if it’s a program with Hornswoggle, shoot me now.
CM Punk and the Straight Edge Society cut a promo on Rey Mysterio. MVP comes out to cut a promo and is jumped by the SES, only to be saved by Rey Mysterio, leading to a tag match.
Rey Mysterio and MVP defeat CM Punk and Luke Gallows. Post-match the masked man attacks Rey again.
I wonder if MVP will try again on Smackdown.
Jack Swagger came out and cut a heel promo. Teddy Long announces the new #1 contender, Big Show, who comes out and knocks Swagger cold with the punch.
Show is the only top face around to challenge Swagger, so this was inevitable.
Seems like a good Smackdown with a new direction.
