WWE SmackDown Report – 6/11/2010
WWE Friday Night SmackDown Report – June 11th, 2010
Report by Richard Trionfo, PWInsider
We start off this week’s show with a look back at Kane’s promo last week when he eulogized the demise of his brother, The Undertaker, as well as his comments to the people he accused of the attack. We see highlights from the battle royal which came down to Rey Mysterio and Kane with Rey pulling out the victory.
We are live on tape from Tampa, Florida and your announcers are Todd ‘Did Something Happen on Monday Night’ Grisham and Matt ‘Now I know what a piñata feels like’ Striker.
Before our first match starts, Rey Mysterio addresses the people of Tampa and the rest of the WWE Universe. He steals Skip Sheffield’s catchphrase and asks what it do. He says that he was given a second chance to do what he does best . . . the impossible. He reminds us that he won the battle royal for the spot that was vacant because of what happened to the Undertaker. Rey says that when he wins, it will not be his World Title, it will be ‘OUR’ World Title. Rey speaks in Spanish but he is cut off by Jack Swagger’s music.
Jack walks to the ring and he says that it is ‘MY’ World Title. Jack tells Rey that he didn’t earn anything and he never has. He only capitalized on the misfortune of others. He capitalized on the misfortune of the Undertaker. While Rey was in Tijuana drinking cervezas, Jack says that he was in Oklahoma winning. He ran drills for thousands of hours because he knew that one day he was going to be destined for the World Title.
Rey tells Jack that he thinks that all of the higher education went to waste because what Jack just said was stupid. Rey says that he though Jack was going to say ‘I tawt I thaw a putty cat’. Rey says that he is proud of his heritage and proud to represent the 619. Rey asks Jack what it will take for him to win the title, and Jack suggests a miracle. Rey tells Jack that he is wrong and it will only take one SIX ONE NINE.
CM Punk’s music plays and he comes onto the stage with Luke and Serena. Punk says that after Malcolm X and JFK, it was only a matter of time before it happened to him. He was the victim of an assassination attempt. Him and the SES were targets for unknown reasons. They were savagely beaten by thirty six unarmed assailants. Anyone else subjected to that attack would not be here tonight, let alone walking. He says that while Swagger and Rey are normal people, Punk says that he is extraordinary. He reminds us that he is the only three time Straight Edge Champion in WWE History. The only thing better is to be a four time champion. At Fatal Four Way, he tells Rey and Swagger that he will be a four time Straight Edge World Champion. Punk says that the entire universe of normal people will finally have a champion they can look up to and believe in.
Rey tells Punk that his ears want to crawl out of his head because the entire WWE Universe are tired of Punk running his mouth. Rey tells Punk that he already beat him and shaved his head. He tells Punk to show some dignity and represent his Straight Edge Society by pulling off his silly mask. He tells Punk to show the world what he looks like bald. Punk says that it is the ‘pot calling the kettle black’ because he isn’t bald. He says that Rey is bald and Big Show is bald.
That is a coincidence because Big Show’s music plays and he comes to the ring. Show tells everyone to relax. He has a little business to take care of first. He says that he is going to walk into Fatal Four Way, beat up everyone, and win the title. Show says that he respects Rey and how he represents the 619. Show comments on the size of his rear end and says that he would need two or three area codes. Show tells Swagger that he has his issues. Show wants to know why Punk is wearing a mask. Show says that he pulls off bald pretty well. He says that Rey probably pulls it off well, but he wears the mask because of his heritage. Show tells Punk that he will do Punk a favor by pulling off Punk’s mask.
Punk tells Show that he won’t be pulling anything off. He will not pull off a victory at Fatal Four Way and he won’t pull off a win tonight.
The building turns red and then Kane appears on the TitanTron. Kane says that looking at the people in the ring, he wonders who is responsible for his brother’s demise. He says that if they think they will compete for Taker’s Holy Grail without fear of reprisal, they are wrong. He says that when he finds out who is responsible, the guilty party will end up in a coffin. We see Kane look at the coffin. He says that maybe it wasn’t just one person. It could have been two of them in a diabolical plot. Maybe it was all four because no one person can do that to his brother. Kane vows that there will be vengeance. Kane slams the coffin shut and then he breathes heavily as we go to commercial.
