Spoilers: More Details from Last Night’s WWE TV Tapings

– Thanks to Nicolas Moore and PWInsider for these more detailed spoilers from last night’s WWE TV tapings in Hampton, Virginia:

Dark Match:

Kaval beat Paul Burchill w/ Katie Lee via pin after a ghetto stomp from the top rope.


Show starts off with The Abraham Washington Show with Zack Ryder and Rosa Mendez. Now I was right beside the titantron however there was a curtain blocking my path so I couldn’t see but I could hear. They read poems to each other and apparently started making out on the couch. End of segment.

Backstage, Regal is talking to Ezekiel about his actions last week and how he needs to get his head in the game because tonight he’s tagging with Kozlov against Christian and Shelton Benjamin.

Goldust beats William Regal after a rollup after Ezekiel and Kozlov getting a scruff outside of the ring costing Regal the match.

Backstage, ECW GM Tiffany (sp?) is talking to Paul Burchill about how he can’t get back on ECW because of the loss against Hurricane a couple weeks back. Burchill storms out and gets passed by Trent Boretta and C. Croft and they talk to Tiffany about their coming up match.

Trent Boretta and C. Croft beat Bobby Shields and ???? (Couldn’t make out his name) in a pretty boring match. Seems as though Boretta and Croft are heels.

Christian and Shelton Benjamin beat Ezekiel and Vlad Kozlov after Benjamin hits a t-bone suplex on Kozlov. More arguing between the roundtable (Ezekiel, Kozlov, and Regal)


R-Truth beat CM Punk by DQ after Luke Gallos interfered, the bout ended with Gallos giving R-Truth a bear hug. Punk and Gallos taunted the crowd gaining a lot of heat with R-Truth still on the ground.

Kane beat Mike Knox in a pretty quick match. I am surprised that Knox still has a job.

Mickie James beat Beth Phoenix and Natayla to become the Number One Contender for the Women’s Championship. It wasn’t specified when she’d get the shot but after the match, since Michelle McCool and Layla were ringside at the announcer’s table, Mickie James attacked them and got double teamed until Maria came out and helped Mickie fend them off.

Vickie Guerrero came out after being embarrassed last week by Eric Escobar and I could barely hear what she was saying because of there being so much booing from the crowd. I got the gist of it though, and pretty much Eric needed to come out and beg to come back to her. Eric came out but said he was sorry for ever meeting her. Vickie set up a handicap match between Escobar and the Hart Foundation.

Hart Foundation (DH Smith and Tyson Kidd) beat Eric Escobar in a handicap match. Pretty short one at that.

Backstage, Batista is complaining to Teddy Long about Undertaker calling him out tonight but Long said it wasn’t his problem. Long however told Batista that next week on Smackdown that Batista and Mysterio will have a street fight match.

Drew McIntyre beat John Morrison in a really decent match, didn’t see McIntryre beating Morrison at all. Crowd wasn’t pleased.

Big Show and Jericho beat Cryme Tyme after Big Show got tagged in and hit Shad with a one hit “KO”.

Undertaker came out to a pretty sweet entrance from what I could tell only to get beat down by Batista with a chair. Batista kept knocking Taker around with it until referee Scott Armstrong got involved and then Tony Chimel who announced ECW, Superstars, and Smackdown announced that the dark main event to be Taker vs Batista vs CM Punk for the World Heavyweight Championship. Batista and Punk double teamed Taker only for Taker to come back and start fighting both of them. Somehow the chair got involved when Jericho’s music came on and Jericho started beating up on Taker. Kane got involved as well and both Kane and Taker chokeslammed Batista and Jericho. CM Punk got a tombstone and Taker got the obvious victory and retained the title.
