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.
John Cena in his Doctor of Thuganomics persona takes on Rey Mysterio in this match from 2003. It’s a pretty decent match and then there’s a ref bump so Cena punches Mysterio in the dick. Cena wins LOL!
After the match Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar, Nathan Jones, Big Show and Matt Morgan come out and tell Cena that he’s going to be the fifth man on Lesnar’s Survivor Series team. Cena’s like, “NO ONE TELLS JOHN CENA WHAT TO DO!”
A-Train/Albert/Lord Tensai appears in the ring and takes out Cena and the Lesnar’s dudes hit the ring and wreck shit on John Cena, finishing him off with a chairshot to the head. Ruthless Aggression y’all!
This is a weird match. Nexus is there as lumberjacks. Cena beats them up and then just bails as The Undertaker shows up about halfway through so he and Kane can fight in the audience.
Matt Striker is on commentary doing his usual, Myspace emo-kid poetry commentary shtick. While it’s fine for Lucha Underground, it’s really awkward here. Todd Grisham is also on commentary, because Michael Cole apparently needs to seem hip and exciting.
2010 WWE is weird as fuck.
“Matt Hardy could have gotten out of the ring but WHADDA MANEUVER™!!!”
After a quick recap of the events that transpired Sunday at Survivor Series on Sunday, SmackDown Live is underway.
Commissioner Shane McMahon, looking like slightly warmed over dog shit makes his way down to the ring for the opening talky portion of SmackDown. He talks about how he’s not 100% because of Survivor Series and gives props to the Raw team and the SmackDown team except for Dean Ambrose.

In his in ring debut with the WWE, Cesaro beat the crap out of future tag team partner, Tyson Kidd, and cuckolded Teddy “Tag Team Match Playa” Long. An auspicious beginning indeed!
The Rock takes on the Dudley Boyz in a Handicap Tables Match because of Attitude Era shenanigans. To win, The Rock must put both Dudleys through tables. Can the most electrifying man in sports entertainment overcome the odds and triumph?
Beth Phoenix is the Women’s Champion and scheduled to face Rosa Mendes in what, in spite of Phoenix’s bum knee, will surly be a squash before a rabid, hometown crowd, but it was not to be.
“EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME!”
Rosa Mendes is sent to the back and Vikki Guerrero decrees that the bout is now a two on one handicap match for the Women’s Championship against the members of LayCool.
And there, before her hometown crowd, Beth Phoenix battled Michelle McCool and Layla. She put up a valiant fight, but the numbers game proved too much and the mighty Beth Phoenix fell before the combined might of McCool and Layla with Layla picking up the win; a hush of stunned silence falling over the crowd in Buffalo.
