Report By: Brandon Tomblin of WrestleView.com
Just to let you all know, this week my report will be done “short and sweet” style. Reason for that being is that I just picked up Smackdown! Vs. Raw for the PS2 this evening and I’m heavily into it. Anybody that is having doubts about picking it up, don’t. All the sweet extras and improvements from last year’s Here Comes The Pain make up for the lack of guys like Eugene, William Regal, or La Resistance. Besides, they can all be made in Create-A-Wrestler. So buy it! Hurry! Run! Anyway, onto the show.
The Cruiserweight Champion, Spike Dudley and Chavo Guerrero make their way down to the ring for our first match, which is non-title, for those wondering.
Match 1 – Spike Dudley vs. Chavo Guerrero (Non-Title)
Nice back and forth action by both Cruisers. In the end, Chavo gets the win with what looked to be a rolling DDT move and then gets the pin for the 3. Maybe a prelude to Chavo winning the Cruiserweight Title in the Fatal 4 Way match at Survivor Series. We’ll know in one more week.
Winner: Chavo Guerrero, but Spike Dudley is STILL the Cruiserweight Champion
They hype Rico’s last WWE match as he takes on Billy Kidman later tonight. Also later tonight, Eddie Guerrero takes on Danny Basham.
We get a flashback to this week’s Smackdown with all the Tough Enough contestants. We also get to see Daniel Puder almost make Kurt Angle cry like a baby. LOL. Kurt’s gonna be ribbed for that for a long time. We are also told to vote for who should be voted off. I didn’t vote in the Diva Search, so I damn sure won’t vote in this. Torrie Wilson then comes out to give her speech about the “Sex Test” next week. The hell is that? They then hype Big Show vs. Kurt Angle for Smackdown next week.
Up next: Rico’s last match in the WWE, as he takes on Billy Kidman.
We get shown how great the 18-34 year-old voter turnout was for this year’s Presidential Election before Billy Kidman and Rico make their way down to the ring for our next match.
Match 2 – Rico vs. Billy Kidman.
Lots of funny “gay” spots by Rico to Kidman, including Rico trapping Kidman on all fours and pretending to giving it to him Doggy style. Both men are putting on a great effort here. Too bad we won’t see Rico again after this. I’ll miss him. Rico almost wins with a flapjack and a neckbreaker, but Kidman kicks out. Rico attempted his armbar into a kick move, but Kidman reversed it into a School Boy pin and holds the ropes for the illegal 3. Kidman then goes up for the Shooting Star Press after the match, but Chavo Guerrero comes to Rico’s aid and Kidman retreats.
Winner: Billy Kidman
Still to come: Eddie Guerrero vs. Danny Basham as our main event for tonight.
We get a flashback to this week’s Smackdown to see the tag match between JBL and Orlando Jordan against Booker T and Josh Matthews. Looks like Josh remembers a lot of his Tough Enough training. Booker T wins the match for his team by delivering the scissors kick to Orlando for the 3 and the win. They then hype JBL defending the WWE Title against Booker T at Survivor Series. Dear God, let Booker win the title. They then run down the rest of the Survivor Series card for both Smackdown and Raw.
Up next: Eddie Guerrero taking on Danny Basham in our main event.
Flashback to Smackdown this week with the 3 Dudleys challenging Big Show to come out to the ring. Big Show promptly comes to the ring and dismantles the 3 Dudleys, meaning that none of the Dudleys will have a spot in Kurt Angle’s Survivor Series team. For your information, Carlito Carribean Cool ended up getting the final spot in Kurt Angle’s Survivor Series team.
Eddie Guerrero comes out to the ring in a pretty blue Low-Rider, followed by the Bashams, as we get set for our main event.
Match 3 - Eddie Guerrero vs. Danny Basham
Eddie plays a little with Danny to get the crowd going. Test of strenght as I come back from getting some candy. Eddie with a dropkick as Danny comes off the ropes. Eddie with chops and an eye-poke. Snapmare by Eddie and a foot to the eyes while the ref has his back turned. Back drop to Danny off the ropes. With the assistance of Doug, Danny knocks Eddie out of the ring to the floor and Eddie looks hurt as we go to commercial.
Danny has Eddie in a sleeper as we come back from break, but Eddie gets out. Eddie gets put in a sleeper near the ropes, but Eddie tosses him out of the ring. Danny with a chokeslam into a sitdown powerbomb to Eddie and a pin for 2 count Nice move. However, Eddie battles back and delivers the 3 Amigos. Eddie then goes up top and hits the Frog Splash for the 3 and the win.
Winner: Eddie Guerrero
After Eddie leaves the ring in celebration, Doug enters the ring and berates Danny, saying that he carries the tag team. Danny then goes to leave the ring and Doug follows and the 2 continue arguing as they make their way to the back as the show ends.Final Thoughts:
Pretty sweet Velocity this week. Sorry I wasn’t as into this report as usual, but Smackdown vs. Raw is heavily on my mind right now. In fact, I was looking for Codebreaker codes online while I was writing this. Yes, I am eat up.
Good last match for Rico tonight, although it is sad to see him go. Maybe he will make it big in TNA. Only time will tell.
As far as the 10 people that were cut this week goes, the only one that made any real sense to me was Billy Gunn, as he really hasn’t done anything spectacular since his tag team with Chuck Palumbo. I despise Hardcore Holly, so I gave less than a monkey turd about that tag team. Why couldn’t the others stay, and instead they get rid of REAL deadweight like Christopher Nowinski and Scott Steiner? Think about it.
Well, that’s all from me for this week. Hope you enjoyed this week’s Velocity. Next week, I’ll be including my Survivor Series predictions with my report, so keep an eye out for that.
Again, if you haven’t bought Smackdown Vs. Raw for the PS2 yet and are considering it, I strongly suggest that you do so. I haven’t even had it a full 12 hours yet and I love it. I’ll still play HCTP from time to time, but this has become my new favorite. So like I said before, buy it! Hurry! Run! Faster!
