AW YE YE! It’s time for another installment of the best 2012 Saturday Morning WWE program of all the times: Saturday Morning Slam! After the generic shitrock theme song that kicks off each and every show Voiceover Guy gives us a rundown of what’s to come and then tosses it to a little segment called…
This is the premiere episode of Saturday Morning Slam, a short lived Saturday morning wrestling show geared at children from 2012. It’s time for lots of arm drags and body scissors and dudes always missing finishers that inflict damage to the head and/or neck!
Voice Over Guy gives us a rundown of what’s to come on this week’s episode and then introduces the first segment.
After an opening video package highlighting the stuff that went down last week as well as hyping two huge matches for tonight (Styles vs. Owens and Cena vs. Nakamura) we head to Cleveland, Ohio for action. Tom Phillips, JBL, and Byron Saxton are calling the action.
Lana gets her third shot at the SmackDown Women’s Championship and proceeds to tap out in five seconds. Tamina comes out at the end and has Lana come with her. I expect training montages to follow in the weeks to come.
“Good morning WWE Universe! It’s time for another hot episode of WWE Saturday Morning Slam! Today we’ve got two hot matches comin’ atcha! United States Champion, Antonio Cesaro takes on R. Truth in our main event, but first a battle between Tons of Funk and the Prime Time Players over who is the greatest dancing tag team!” announces the unseen Saturday Morning Slam announcer guy.
The first Smackdown brand exclusive PPV since the brand split has a pretty stacked card. New championships are up for grabs and existing championships will be defended. Who’s going to walk away with gold and who’s going to go home empty?
The show begins with Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan coming out to hype up the event and Smackdown as a brand before telling us that the match for the new Smackdown Women’s Championship is coming up now!
If I ever go on Tough Enough and am asked what my favorite match of all time is, I think I’d have to say Cameron vs. Naomi from a random episode of Raw back in 2014. You know, the match where Cameron attempted to pin someone who was on their stomach?
