Hey folks, ThinkSoJoE here, filling in for tharvey1 who is on vacation this week.
You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry, you’d better not pout, I’m tellin’ you why. Santa Claus is comin’ to town – and hopefully, he won’t be singing “What’s Up” as he comes down your chimney. It’s Christmas Eve, it’s 8PM, and it’s on a network I don’t get, so we’re bootlegging it* for WWE Superstars!
*BoredWrestlingFan does not condone or endorse illegal downloads – but, since this show will be up on Hulu in a few days, I suppose it doesn’t matter this time. Hello, Mr. McDevitt!
You know, it’s been a while since I’ve actually watched this show – actually it was probably the week that I was there for two of the matches back in October.
Ezikiel Jackson is dressed in festive red tights – well, he wears those every week, but still. Two weeks ago, he and William Regal turned on Vladimir Kozlov. Hey, speaking of Kozlov, he’s also dressed in festive red – well, he always wears red, but still. He’s also Jackson’s opponent this evening.
Vladimir Kozlov vs. Ezekiel Jackson ended in a double count-out
This is a short match that spills to the outside early and ends when the referee counts both men out. When did Lauren Mayhew come back? She still sucks.
Kozlov wants more of Jackson, but Jackson opts to leave. Apparently he’d rather not get into an unsanctioned fight, which might get him a spot on Santa’s naughty list.
Still to come in our main event, it’s Kane taking on Mike Knox
Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole are here from RAW, so let’s take a look at what happened last Friday night on SmackDown for some reason!
Last Friday: Rey Mysterio somehow managed to beat Batista and become number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Timbaland will be guest hosting RAW on Monday.
Chavo Guerrero has been battling with Hornswoggle for quite a while. Picking on a little guy like that puts Chavo on the naughty list this year – though some RAW fans would like to see Chavo get rid of him for good. His opponent tonight is Primo, who is also on the naughty list for stealing Aldo Montoya’s pyro.
Chavo Guerrero def. Primo
By time I get this network in my area, we’ll probably be watching Tyler Rekes vs. Vance Archer in the main event of this show. I suppose I shouldn’t complain – these two guys can wrestle. It actually becomes one of those “sit and watch” matches. Chavo channels his Uncle Eddie, but Primo avoids a third amigo and rolls Chavo up for a two. Primo dumps Chavo over the top rope to the floor, but inadvertently drops his own throat over the top rope in the meantime, allowing Chavito to hit the Frog Splash for the victory!
Ask The Divas: In the words of my vacationing friend tharvey1, “who cares?” One of the Bellas confuses cheesecake with a Philly cheese steak. Speaking of, how’s that one slice of cheesecake, RDLee?

The WWE Intercontinental Champion, Drew McIntyre, is dressed to the nines and has something to say. Drew is on the “nice” list – simply because he’s an entertaining part of our Friday nights. McIntyre says that he’s the Intercontinental Champion, which means that Mr. McMahon was right. Everything McIntyre said he’d do, he’s done. When Mr. McMahon proclaimed him a future World Champion, it’s just a matter of t…
Now listen, this ain’t no make believe
John Morrison is also on the “nice” list this year, for the exact same reason as McIntyre. He wonders if McIntyre knows about New Year’s Day. McIntyre asks him what about New Year’s Day. Morrison tells him that Teddy Long is granting him his rematch for the Intercontinental Championship. McIntyre tells him to celebrate all he wants on New Year’s Eve, but on New Year’s Day, his party is over. Morrison asks McIntyre if he’s ever been to a party. Nobody would want to party with McIntyre because they can’t understand anything that he says. On New Year’s Day, the party will be over for McIntyre. On New Year’s Day, Morrison is going to beat McIntyre for the Intercontinental Championship. Fisticuffs ensue, with JoMo getting the better of the exchange and hitting Starship Pain. He looks at the Intercontinental title and drops it across the fallen champion.
Kane is walking backstage. He’s in action, NEXT!
Video Package: John Cena’s Tribute To The Troops experience – which is one of many things that puts Cena on the “Nice” list, no matter how much I dislike his gimmick.
Speaking of the “Nice” list, Kane is on it, because if he weren’t, he’d probably set Santa on fire. His opponent, Mike Knox, is also on the “Nice” list, because he’d physically dissect Santa if he weren’t.
Kane def. Mike Knox
To answer Drow’s question from the other day, I’d ask Wrestling Santa for a Mike Knox title run. It’s hard to believe that this guy made his WWE debut during a segment set to the song “Buttons” by the Pussycat Dolls. Don’t believe me? It’s true – go back to the second episode of ECW on SciFi back in June 2006. In any event, matches between two big guys are usually boring, but these guys have great chemistry together. In the end, Knox goes for a top rope move, but Kane catches him by the throat and chokeslams him for the victory.
That’s it for me, kids! There’s no TNA iMPACT on this week, but Drowgoddess should be along tomorrow night with her SmackDown review. Happy Holidays from myself and all of the BoredWrestlingFan family!
