Jamie Noble with Nidia vs. Brian Danielson
The two wrestlers grapple on the mat in the early going. Danielson applies a few submission holds, but Noble is able to break free and then locks in an arm submission of his own. Noble tries a test of strength, hand to hand, and then turns it into a Northern Lights Suplex. Danielson gets in a few kicks until Noble blocks one and then trips him neck first into the ropes. Noble runs across the ring and sits on Danielson’s neck and then Nidia belts him when the ref isn’t looking. Irish whip sends Danielson into the ropes and he attempts a sunset flip then staggers Noble with some European uppercuts and delivers a splash in the corner. Noble catches him with a powerslam and after a series of reversals, he gets the pinfall with a swinging neckbreaker.
Winner by pinfall: Jamie Noble
They run down the winners from the Raw ten year anniversary. Then we are treated to the Al Wilson viewing. Finally, we get the Tough Enough recap from this week’s show.
Chuck Palumbo vs. Xavier
Chuck starts off hot with a few punches and a clothesline. Xavier is able to flip over Chuck’s back and hit a drop toe hold, and then the rookie goes to work on the big man’s legs. Chuck picks up Xavier for a power bomb and then throws him back first into the turnbuckles. He heaves Xavier across the ring with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex. Xavier turns the tide by sliding down Chuck’s back from a power bomb attempt and hits a high cross body and a neck breaker. The newcomer tries a 450 Flip and lands on his feet as Chuck rolls out of the way. Palumbo hits his super kick for the win.
Winner by pinfall: Chuck Palumbo
Flashback to Smackdown
We see the emergence of Team Angle and their matches from the past few weeks, followed by build up for the Angle vs. Benoit title match at the Royal Rumble. Then we get the rundown of the full Rumble card and some Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show hype.
Shannon Moore vs. The Jet
The wrestlers exchange armbars and armdrags, and then Shannon taunts the Jet to show that he is learning some Mattitude. He takes out Jet’s legs, hits a back suplex, and then applies the dreaded chinlock. He continues to work on Jet with a bodyslam and a wild slug to the back. The Jet steals the momentum with a rolling sole butt and an Ensuguri. Shannon charges into the corner and misses by a mile and that allows Jet to hit a springboard dropkick. After another reversal, Jet hits a finisher that looks suspiciously like Diamondback’s finisher from last week. Will he have a new name and mask every week?
Winner by pinfall: The Jet
