To update you all on my progress on Smackdown! Vs. Raw for the PS2, I have everything completed, except the Legend Challenge where you have to make Bret Hart tap out in his own Sharpshooter. I’ve used every sensible character to accomplish it with, but ol’ Bret just won’t tap to his own Sharpshooter. To remedy that, I have a PS2 controller with Turbo buttons. Hopefully that will give me a little bit of an advantage. I’ll soon see. Anyways, onto Velocity.
Torrie Wilson comes down to the ring to be the ring announcer for our first match, which will be the WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Spike Dudley taking on Hardcore Holly in a Non-Title Match.
Match 1 – Spike Dudley vs. Hardcore Holly
Hardcore Holly gets the win with a HARD Alabama Slam.
Winner: Hardcore Holly
Later tonight: The Big Show will be in action. Also, Luther Reigns and Mark Jindrak take on Nunzio and Funaki in tag action.
When we come back from commercial, we see clips from Smackdown this past week with the Tough Enough contestants. We are told that Chris Nawrocki was eliminated. Then we are shown clips of the 5 remaining TE contestants try to complete this week’s challenge, which is to get past the Basham Brothers in the ring and grab the flag on their turnbuckle. Each TE contestant is given 30 seconds to complete the challenge, but nobody is successful and the Bashams win. We are then once again given the rundown on how to vote for who we want to stay in the competition, etc.
Coming up after the break: Big Show is in action….against who?
When we return, the Big Bald Show makes his way to the ring to take on….2 jobbers. *YAWN*. Big Show is introduced as weighing 475 now. Glad to hear he shed a little weight.
Match 2 – Big Show vs. 2 Local Guys (Jobbers)
Big Show gives 2 simultaneous Chokeslams to the 2 jobbers to get the very easy win.
Winner: Big Show...obviously
Still to come: Luther Reigns and Mark Jindrak take on Nunzio and Funaki.
Back from the break, Akio and Shannon Moore make their ways down to the ring for our next match.
Match 3 – Akio vs. Shannon Moore
Shannon Moore looks silly as hell with his hair spiked in the middle like that. Anyway, Shannon Moore hits the “Moore-gasim” as Josh Matthews calls it, from the second rope for the pin and the win.
Winner: Shannon Moore
When we come back from the break, we’ll see clips from Smackdown this week of Carlito Carribean Cool defending the United States Title against John Cena.
WrestleMania Recall: Shane McMahon defeating Vince McMahon in their Street Fight match at WrestleMania 17 (my favorite) in 2001.
We now go to clips of the Carlito Carribean Cool – John Cena match for the United States Title this week on Smackdown. Carlito’s shoulder really looks to be in bad shape. Looks like he will be out of action for awhile after this. John Cena wins a quick match with the F-U to become United States Champion for the third time. Afterwards, Cena is attacked by Jesus (no, not THAT Jesus, but Carlito’s bodyguard). Moving on…
Up next is our main event of the night, as Luther Reigns and Mark Jindrak take on Nunzio and Funaki.
The WWE Rewind: Rob Van Dam & Rey Mysterio defeating the Tag Champions, Rene Dupree and Kenzo Suzuki in a Non-Title match. Why was it non-title?
The teams of Luther Reigns & Mark Jindrak and Nunzio & Funaki make their way down to the ring for tonight’s main event.
Match 3 – Luther Reigns & Mark Jindrak vs. Nunzio & Funaki
Mark Jindrak gets the pin for his team after he and Luther Reigns deliver a double-team finisher on Funaki in which Luther gives Funaki a bear hug, and while Funaki is being held, Jindrak delivers a spin kick to Funaki’s forehead. Luther then drops Funaki so Jindrak can get the pin.
Winners: Mark Jindrak & Luther ReignsFinal Thoughts:
Didn’t really care much about this week’s Velocity. I’ve reviewed shows before that had far better matches than this. Plus, I had a long night at work, so I wasn’t into this show as past ones.
Torrie Wilson is very hot, but when it comes to ring announcing, she will never in a million years be considered as Smackdown’s version of Lillian Garcia.
Isn’t this like the second time in a month that we’ve seen Big Show beat up 2 jobbers on Velocity?
I was only 2 for 7 in my Survivor Series predictions. Only matches I got right were Raw’s Elimination Match and Shelton Benjamin – Christian. I don’t know what ever convinced me that Undertaker would put over Heidenreich. Guess that teaches me to have faith in the American Badass Big Evil Booger Red Deadman.
See you kiddies next week for more Velocity. Peace.
