As much as it hurt, I released Savage from Raw. He hasn't appeared since July week 1. He should be back once I edit the rosters in October.
Match 1. Gabriel vs. Riley
The feud that will never die with Superstars that will never go away. Riley was making his way to the ring when Ziggler came out from under it and attacked him. After a 450-splash, Gabriel landed his signature move and pinned Riley for the win.
Match 2. Stone Cold vs. R-Truth
Now thinking about it, Truth is one guy I never thought about releasing, but I just might. He's more of a pest that Gabriel and Slater. Foley interfered in the match. He almost hit Truth, but he missed and Truth hit his finisher on Austin.
Match 3. Batista vs. Kane
I wouldn't be surprised to see Clay or Ryan interfere. Two former champs collide a few weeks before the next PPV. I called it. Ryan made his way to the ring with a chair. I can't tell which one is Batista and which one's Ryan. Nah, I kid. Batista hit the Batista Bomb to Kane outside the ring.
Main Event. Foley vs. Clay
Now this is an interesting match. These two weren't acting like they should be. Foley was wrestling a very technical style while Clay displayed some quickness. The match spilled outside the ring, in from of the announcer's table. Brodus won by hitting his finisher.
Match 1. Harris vs. Miz
A decent match to kick off Smackdown. Harris has a pretty good moveset. Husky won after landed his finisher on Miz.
Match 2. Nash vs. Henry
I'm very happy that Nash is no longer a contender for the World Title. He can stay on the mid-card for the rest of my Universe. Big Sexy seemed to be in control for most of the match. Though, Henry wasn't giving up that easy. Nash won with the Jackknife.
Match 3. Morrison vs. Taker
This is the fourth time these two are facing in the short time Morrison has been on Smackdown. Taker is 3-0 against JoMo. Maybe he can win one, just to prove that he belongs in the top 4. Undertaker doesn't like JoMo. He hit the Last Ride and Tombstone to become 4-0.
Edge, Christian and Mason appeared at the top of the ramp. Edge pointed at Taker as to say "he's next."
Main Event. Bryan vs. Barrett
DiBiase was shown in the front row with a ticket in hand. In a mostly one-sided match, Barrett won by hitting Wasteland on the champ. Could this be a sign of things to come?
Recap: Nothing really newsworthy for Raw. Smackdown had an average card. I was close to revealing one of my surprise CAWs this week, but I'm going to hold off. Oh, I realized I've been calling Miz's finisher "Mic Check" when it's really "Skull Crushing Finale." But I don't care. "Mic Check" is shorter and it fits Miz.
