Smackdown: Booker scores himself a treat
By DALE PLUMMER -- SLAM! Wrestling


Trick or treat! Smell my feet! Give me something good to eat. If you don't, I don't care. Just read my report, if you dare! The treat tonight from WWE is a costume contest between Torrie Wilson and Dawn Marie. Unfortunately the trick is the rest of the show, with only three matches.

Al Snow rolls into Omaha, Nebraska with the Tough Enough contestants. Big Show and the rest of the superstar aren't pleased to see the new blood. In fact Show kicks them out into the hallway, and says they have to change there. Instead, Snow takes the boys to the ring, and they are all ready down one contestant, who quit earlier in the week. The first Tough Enough challenge is to cut a 20 second promo on Big Show. I don't think that's such a good idea. Big Show isn't pleased with what was said and heads to the ring. Each TE contestant is welcomed to the biz with a body slam courtesy of Show.

Last week's main event is rehashed, featuring Booker T. Read all about it here!

Match #1 - Chavo Guerrero vs. Nunzio

Billy Kidman has decided to join Michael Cole and Tazz at ringside, to through in his own two cents. Nunzio jumps Chavo as Kidman distracted him. Chavo fights back and chops Nunzio into the corner. Kidman tries to defend his actions to Cole and Tazz, as Chavo decimates Nunzio. Nunzio hits a leg drop off the second rope, and then chokes Chavo on the ropes. Chavo fights his way out of the corner, and follows with a clothesline and a back body drop. Nunzio slides out of powerbomb, and both men clothesline each other. Nunzio falls from the ring, as Chavo falls in the corner. Kidman leaves the announce position, and tries a shooting star press. Chavo rolls out of the way, and then finishes of Nunzio with a Chavo Bomb.

Winner via pin fall: Chavo Guerrero

JBL is asked by Josh Matthews what it was like to be pinned for the first time since before Wrestlemania XX. Booker interrupts and tells JBL to tell him he's afraid. Booker stand toe-to-toe with the champ, before Orlando Jordan intervenes. Jordan tells Booker he has to go through him to get to JBL. Booker calls him a house boy. Teddy Long steps in to diffuse the situation. Long books a match between Booker T and Orlando Jordan, and if Booker wins he will face JBL at Survivor Series for the title.

Heidenreich is on the phone with Paul Heyman. Apparently, Heyman isn't listening, but Heidenreich is begging Paul to get the Undertaker's signature for their match.

Paul Heyman has arrived at an undisclosed location to meet the Undertaker. I think I see Dick Cheney in the background. Heyman tries to convince 'Taker that this is Heidenreich's idea. Heyman leaves the contract on the table; Undertaker reaches across and grabs it. He signs it; the match is on! Undertaker then grabs Heyman and tells him that he gave him a pass for the Paul Bearer thing, but this contract isn't for a match. It is for an execution.

Match #2 - Kurt Angle vs. Rey Mysterio

Mark Jindrak and Luther Reigns have been banned from ringside for this match. Riiiiight ... and the Boston Red Sox are still cursed. Angle tied up Rey to start. Angle picks up Rey and sets him on the top turnbuckle. Angle takes down Mysterio with a side headlock. Rey shoots him off the ropes, but is clotheslined on the return. Kurt and Rey jaw at each other, and Mysterio takes him down. Angle chases Mysterio around the ring. Angle lunges at him, and spills through the ropes. Back in the ring, Angle kicks Mysterio in the gut, but Rey answers with head scissors. Angle catches Mysterio and tosses him over the ropes with a belly-to-belly suplex. We return from commercial to find Rey being whipped into the corner. Rey blocks the first belly-to-belly attempt, but he can't block the second. Angle chokes Mysterio in the corner with his boot. Angle locks in a reverse gut wrench, but Rey is able to break the hold. Angle then nails a German suplex. The Olympic champ keeps the pressure on with a snap mare into a leg scissors. Mysterio breaks free, and attempts a tilt-a-whirl head scissors. Rey gets caught, but turns it into a spinning DDT. Mysterio hits a springboard senton, and follows up with a bulldog, but cannot get a pin. Angle tries to lock in the ankle lock, but Mysterio knocks him into the ropes. Angle ducks away from the 6-1-9. An errant forearm knocks out the ref, and Mysterio goes for another 6-1-9. Jindrak and Reigns hit the ring, followed by RVD and Eddie Guerrero. Eddie hits the frog splash on Angle, and then takes out Reigns with body press. Mysterio covers Angle and gets the win.

Winner via pin fall: Rey Mysterio

Torrie Wilson is getting her costume on when Kenzo Suzuki enters her locker room. He says something I (and Torrie) didn't understand, and she begs him to leave.

Big Show is going to be on Star Trek: Enterprise. I'm still not going to watch.

All the guys involved in the most recent match are arguing in Teddy Long's office. Long announces that they will have an old-school Survivor Series match at, well, Survivor Series. Each team still needs to add one member.

It's the weekly John Cena update. His kidney is healing nicely, and he should be back in a few weeks.

Carlito Caribbean Cool is with Josh Matthews, with his new thung Jesus. No not Christ, it's pronounced hey-zeus. CCC admits he was at the club when Cena was stabbed. CCC's thug then grabs Matthews so he can be spit on.

Match #3 - Dawn Marie vs. Torrie Wilson - Halloween Costume Contest

I'll admit calling this a match is a stretch, but at least they're not trying to wrestle. Torrie comes dressed as a fairy, but "Hello, nurse!", Dawn Marie is smoking. Dawn says this is what she wears to nurse Charlie Haas back to health. A healthy Miss Jackie returns to confront Dawn Marie. Torrie keeps Dawn in the ring, and Miss Jackie attacks, stripping Dawn down to her bra and panties.

Winner: Everyone (especially those in the arena, as Dawn Marie almost totally lost her top)

It's Raw Rebound time, read Nick Tylwalk's report here.

Angle is freaking out of Big Show joining Angle's team. Spike Dudley drops by with an offer. One member of the Dudleys joins Team Angle, if they can eliminate Angle's 'Big' problem. D-Von and Bubba freak, but Spike says he has a plan.

The Tough Enough segment is recapped from earlier in the show. Voting starts next week.

Match #5 - Orlando Jordan vs. Booker T

Booker and Jordan lock up, and do nothing. Both men size each other up. Both men trade punches in the middle of the ring. Jordan tried for a hip toss, but Booker blocks it and responds with a clothesline. Jordan is backed into the corner, and Booker wails on him. Jordan tries a vertical suplex, but Booker goes up and over, and responds with punches. Booker then locks in an arm bar. Jordan breaks free, and chokes Booker on the ropes. Booker hits a spin kick to lay out Jordan. And then knocks Jordan over the top rope. Booker venture to the outside, and slams Jordan off the announce table. JBL stares down Booker as we go to commercial. Booker T is in control coming back form break. Booker slams Jordan to the mat, and follows with a vertical suplex. Jordan is tossed from the ring, and Booker confronts JBL. Jordan capitalizes on a distracted Booker, and slams Book into the steps. Booker is rolled back into the ring, and Jordan kicks him in the ribs. Jordan slaps on a reverse chin lock. Booker T fights out of the hold. Booker shoots off the ropes, but is caught by Jordan, and then dropped on the ropes. Jordan mocks Booker, and then goes to the tope rope. Jordan hits the flying clothesline, but Booker rolls though and almost gets the pin. Jordan slaps on the reverse chin lock, again. Booker T hits a swinging neck breaker off the ropes. Both men stagger back to their feet, and Jordan keeps the pressure on with right hands. Booker is brought to his knees with kicks to the mid-section. Booker T is shot of the ropes, but is able to hit a flapjack on Jordan. Booker blocks a right hand, and chops back. Booker hits a right hand coming off the ropes, and follows with a clothesline and a spin kick. A spine buster precedes a pin by Booker, but Jordan kicks out. A thrust kick to the jaw puts Jordan down. JBL is knocked off the apron by Booker T, and then hits the scissors kick on Jordan. He covers for the pin. Booker T is going to Survivor Series to face JBL for the title.

Winner via pin fall: Booker T
