Smackdown: Mysterio left a bloody mess
By DALE PLUMMER - SLAM! Wrestling


Welcome to another edition of "As the ring turns" with Smackdown! coming to us from Trenton, New Jersey. The Eddie Guerrero/Rey Mysterio saga continues, as we get a recap to kick off the show.

Rey Rey kicks off the show and calls out Eddie Guerrero. Mysterio calls his former partner a liar, and that Eddie played him for a fool. He also calls Eddie a coward for walking away last week. Eddie walks out to a chorus of boos. Guerrero tells Mysterio he has nothing to say. Mysterio punches Eddie to get a response from Latino Heat. Guerrero says he never laid a hand on him. Mysterio accuses Eddie of having MNM do his dirty work. Rey wants a fight, striking Guerrero again. Eddie says he won't fight, leaves the ring. Mysterio asks Eddie if he's scared that he'd get beat again. That comments gets Eddie to stop, but then he continues on to the locker room.

Mysterio is pleading for a match from Teddy Long, when Chavo Guerrero interrupts to defend his uncle. Rey and Chavo go at it in the GM's office until a gaggle of refs break them up.

Match #1 - Matt Morgan vs. Un-named Jobber

Morgan grabs the mike before his opponent can be introduced. He tells his opponent to run, like the run-away bride. Oh, and he's stutters through the whole thing. Mel Blanc is turning over in his grave, 'cause Porky Pig this guy ain't. Morgan hits the kid with a cheap shot head butt, and then finishes him off with a delayed vertical suplex.

Winner via pin fall: Matt Morgan

Match #2 - Booker T vs. Orlando Jordan

Booker and Jordan lock up and then trade blows in the middle of the ring. Jordan clotheslines Booker over the top rope, and follows him to the outside. Booker fights back, but a thumb to the eye slows him down. Jordan tosses Book back in the ring, and slaps on a rear-chin lock. A few elbows to the gut break the hold. A clothesline knocks Booker down, and Jordan nails him with a series of mounted punches. Jordan slaps on another rear-chin lock. Booker is whipped across the ring, and counters with a high elbow. Booker climbs the turnbuckle, but gets crotched by Jordan. The U.S. champ tries a superplex, but Booker fights him off, and nails a missile drop kick. Jordan then dodges a scissors kick, but gets nailed by a sidekick, and then cannot dodge the second scissors kick. Booker covers and picks up a win.

Winner via pin fall: Booker T

Booker's wife, Sharmell, celebrates her husband's win in the back, when Kurt Angle confronts her. Angle says Booker cost him the match last week. He wants a match with Booker at Judgment Day, with her at ringside.

Match #3 - MNM vs. Scotty Too Hotty and Shannon Moore

Mercury and Scotty face off. Moore tags in and the two double-team Mercury. As the ref gets Scotty out of the ring, Nitro grabs Moore and Mercury nails him. Nitro tags in, and Moore goes for a cross body. Nitro counters with a knee. Scotty and Mercury tag in. Nitro is drop kicked off the apron. Scotty goes for the worm, but is distracted my Melina, who shows some leg. Nitro and Mercury hit the Snap Shot on Scotty to pick up the win.

Winner via pinfall: MNM

After the match, Rey Mysterio hits the ring with a lead pipe in hand. The tag team champs high tail it to the back, as Rey smacks the stairs with said pipe.

JBL heads to the ring, still carrying the old WWE Title belt, with something to say. JBL tells the Trenton crowd to show some respect. JBL says he carries the old belt for his fans, and then steals Cena's catch phrase. JBL continues to run down the crowd. The crowd starts chanting Cena's name, which causes JBL to go off even more. The champ has apparently heard enough, and comes down to shut JBL up. Cena calls out JBL for stealing the old belt, and then shows him how to uses his catch phrase properly. Cena says JBL is a lot of things, but he is not a quitter. Cena challenges JBL to and 'I Quit' match at Judgment Day. I just want to know if there's an 'I Quit' button on my remote?

Chavo Guerrero is talking with MNM, backstage. Hmm, I wonder what that's all about?

Match #4 - Kurt Angle vs. Local Boy - Kurt Angle Invitational

Angle says he's in no mood to have this match, and orders the kid to leave. AS the kid gets to the ropes, Angle says he changed his mind, and absolutely destroys the young wrestler. Angle dishes out a brutal beating, before slapping on the ankle lock. The kid taps but with no ref, the match isn't official.

Angle then calls out Booker T. He wants an answer and he wants it now. Booker and Sharmell come out to the top of the ramp. Booker T says he accepts the challenge. Angle says that's great because he's going to break his ankle, and then he'll have to go home with that gutter (expletive deleted) wife. Booker hits the ring, and assaults Angle. Booker holds the Olympic champ, as Sharmell slaps him. Angle then nails Booker with a low blow, and follows with the Angle Slam. Kurt sets his sights on Sharmell, who trips while running up the ramp. Angle stalks her, and almost slaps on the ankle lock, as security keeps him at bay. Booker tends to his injured wife and carries her to the back.

Chavo tells Eddie that he is a far better man than himself. Chavo is proud that Eddie has put friendship and loyalty first. Chavo says he will teach Rey to never mess with a Guerrero.

Match #5 - Carlito Caribbean Cool vs. Hardcore Holly

How does Holly still have a job? Either he has naked pictures of Vince (shudder) or this is payback for being Sparky Plugg. Carlito chops Holly into the corner, but Holly turns it around. Carlito begs for him to stop. A clothesline sends CCC to the mat. Carlito locks in a sleeper, but Holly counters with a back suplex. Holly shoots off the ropes and hits a clothesline. He follows with a full nelson driver. Holly then hits a flying clothesline. He sets up CCC for the Alabama Slam, but Carlito grabs the ropes to break up the move. Carlito goes up and over on Holly, and pins him with a back slide. Carlito uses the ropes for leverage and gets the pin.

Winner via pinfall: Carlito Caribbean Cool

After the match, Carlito announces that next week The Big Show will be the guest on the Cabana. He says he's going to make Show an offer he can't refuse. Carlito must think The Godfather is very cool.

John Cena's rap video Bad, Bad Man debuts. It's a tribute to the '80s, and I don't care what anyone says, I like it. I'm a sucker for an A-Team spoof. What can I say?

Match #6 - Chavo Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio - Street Fight

Um, shouldn't a street fight be in, you know, a street? Never mind. Rey comes down still holding a lead pipe. Chavo leaves the ring, and tells Rey to fight him like a man. Rey ditches the pipe, and the match gets under way. A drop toehold sends Chavo into the middle turnbuckle. Mysterio then hits a split-legged moonsault. Rey hits a springboard huricanranna, sending Chavo flying from the ring. Guerrero grabs a chair. Rey ducks the shot, and then kicks Chavo's legs out. Chavo counters a drop kick, and then tosses Rey out of the ring. Guerrero grabs a ladder, and places it in the corner of the ring. Rey drives Chavo into the ring apron, and heads back into the ring.
