Sean O’Haire vs. Bobby Rude
O’Haire takes control easily using his strength as Ernest Miller tells us that Josh Matthews once wrestled against Rude and lost. O’Haire shows his agility by flipping out of a leg scissors but gets tripped and then slapped by the rookie. The big man is upset at this lack of respect and kicks Rude in the face, causing him to fall through the ropes. O’Haire continues to pummel Rude in and out of the ring with power moves and kicks until the newcomer fights back with a hurricanrana and a DDT. O’Haire catches Rude with a big kick to the gut and nails the Widowmaker for the win.

Winner by pinfall: Sean O’Haire

Flashback to Smackdown
They show Zach Gowen signing his contract, getting his first match assignment against Vince McMahon, and Sable vs. Stephanie.

The FBI is hanging out as Spanky shows up disguised as a pizza delivery guy. Apparently he’s put some laxatives into the pizza.

Kanyon vs. Orlando Jordan
The two wrestlers exchange headlocks and armbars to start the match. Jordan hits a few hiptosses and continues to work on Kanyon’s arm. He tries something from the second rope, but Kanyon catches him up there and nails a side Russian leg sweep off the ropes. Kanyon beats on the rookie in the corner, then charges right into Jordan’s boot after an Irish whip. Kanyon charges again and takes another kick to the face. Jordan rushes out of the corner but Kanyon hits a back body drop and falls straight backwards for a bridge type pin attempt that gets him a two count. He drags Jordan over to the corner and hits a falling legdrop off the second rope. Jordan manages to get to his feet and tries for a hiptoss, but Kanyon blocks it and counters into a swinging neckbreaker. Kanyon tries again for his ‘lethal’ legdrop, but this time Orlando holds on and powerbombs him. Jordan continues the attack with a flying burrito and three dropkicks, followed by some punches (which the ref doesn’t seem to mind). Kanyon blocks an Irish whip, hits another side Russian legsweep and goes for the Flatliner, but Jordan blocks it and hits an inverted neckbreaker for the win.

Winner by pinfall: Orlando Jordan

Funaki vs. A-Train
Albert throws some chairs into the ring and chases Josh Matthews around before the match starts. Once the bell rings, Funaki runs away from A-Train too. He catches the big man with a dropkick and a plancha, but runs right into a shoulder block. A-Train tries for a powerbomb, but Funaki slides over the top into a sunset flip attempt. A-Train tries to punch Funaki while he’s on the mat, but Smackdown’s #1 announcer slides out of the way and kicks Albert’s leg. He nails a bulldog and a dropkick, but then gets caught on A-Trains’s shoulder after trying a springboard something off the second rope. Train Wreck and it’s all over.

Winner by pinfall: A-Train

Flashback to Smackdown
They show Brock Lesnar’s 1-on-3 match which ended when Big Show chokeslammed him through the announce table.

Nunzio vs. Spanky
Nunzio comes down to the ring alone because of Spanky’s pizza plan. The two cruisers exchange some quick maneuvers and counters in the early going. They tie up for a test of strength and Nunzio slaps Spanky in the face. HBK’s top student takes over with a corkscrew hurricanrana and a heel kick to the face. He climbs to the top rope, but Nunzio throws him off and slaps on a neck twisting headlock. Spanky gets in a kick to the face and a clothesline before Nunzio trips him head first into the middle turnbuckle. The FBI captain then nails a vicious second rope dropkick that almost takes Spanky’s head off. They exchange back suplex attempts, but both guys flip over the back and Spanky gets thrown to the mat by his hair. He shows off his HBK training by skinning the cat and hitting a flying forearm. Springboard moonsault gets Spanky a two count and he follows it up with a walk up insuguri. He tries for Sliced Bread #2, but Nunzio blocks it and nails Arriva Derci for the win

Winner by pinfall: Nunzio


Sean O’Haire vs. Bobby Rude
Pretty average opening match. Rude got in some offense so it wasn’t a total squash, but O’Haire wasn’t very exciting. He kicks too much and spends too much time staring at his opponent after every move. I know O’Haire is capable of better because I’ve seen some great matches from him in the past. Maybe he just needs a different gimmick or an opponent that is allowed to fight back more.

Kanyon vs. Orlando Jordan
Apparently, a lot of people are better than Kanyon right now. Too bad, since his creativity in the ring is so cool to watch. Jordan wrestled a good match as well and his finisher is decent too. Definitely a better than average match for the B show.

Funaki vs. Ass Train
AGAIN?!?!?!? Come on, that’s like twenty times in the last year. If they are going to give us the same match every other week, at least do something different for a change. But no, Funaki gets in his standard bulldog and low dropkicks while Assbert uses the same three moves he always does and yells a lot. Boring and pointless. At least TRY to entertain us.

Nunzio vs. Spanky
Very solid main event. Both guys got in tons of offense including some great counters. That’s two losses in a row for Spanky on Velocity. Nunzio came off looking pretty good, getting the victory without any help from his FBI buddies.

Overall, an average Velocity. The only great match was the last one. Kanyon vs. Jordan was a solid match, but A-Train vs. Funaki was just plain useless and O’Haire was pretty boring this week. Hopefully we’ll get a better show next week as we get ready for the PPV.
