CM Punk is out to start the show. He says this Sunday he will win his 4th World Championship, nobody has ever done that while being straight edge. He says he is the only man in history to make The Undertaker tap out and if it wasn't for his vegetative state, he'd do it again. He says he is not responsible for The Undertaker's vegetative state but he finds it hilarious and is glad he is. He wishes he would have done it, so when the perpetrator comes to light he'll be the 1st man in line to shake their hand. The lights go out and everybody thinks it's The Undertaker due to the tall large man in a trench coat. Punk acts afraid to death and starts poking away at him, but it's revealed Its Luke Gallows. Punk mocks Taker's pose and that brings out his brother Kane. Before Kane can get down to business, Jack Swagger attacks him from behind. The SES and Swagger join in on attacking Kane before The Big Show and Mysterio save the day. Rey hits the 619 and Big Show hits a choke slam, which is a receipt for last week. Big Show tells Kane he had nothing to do with it. Not bad here, but I'm really hoping this doesn't lead to Kane being the culprit and the mastermind behind all of this.

MVP&Christian Vs Vance Archer and Curt Hawkins. Pretty average stuff here, I think all 4 are capable of more with more time though. The heels win it.
Team Laycool yap away like a bunch of annoying little school-girls and even go as far as to deny Rosa Mendes access to be part of Laycool. Laycool tells Kaval to turn his frown upside down. OK.....than
Vickie is unimpressed with Chavo, while Chavo talks about how great it is to have Los Guerrero's back together. Vickie is too busy looking at Dolph's manly daisy dukes to listen to Chavo, while watching him work away with his work belt. Masters comes in but decides it isn't a good time. Dolph just doesn't have the charisma and I'm getting awfully tired of Vickie.
JTG Vs Chavo Guerrero. Nothing really to see here, another squash for Chavo and he's better than this. JTG wins and even celebrates with a dance with the kids.
Josh Matthews is in the back with Kofi. Kofi says he has a lot of fight left in him, so he doesn't have a problem with facing Drew at Fatal Four Way, he's got a problem with Drew facing Teddy. He says when all the smoke is cleared he will still be The Intercontinental Champion. Kofi's Mic skills are rapidly improving, I see big things for the young lad.

Drew McIntyre Vs Teddy Long. Teddy won't come out, so Drew reminds him of the stipulations. Drew berates Teddy and says he doesn't care if he's in a suit, he's still going to tear him apart. He says to make sure of no shenanigans from Matt or Kofi he's enlisted his own private security. Drew tells Charles Robinson to make sure there is no foreign objects on Teddy. Drew demands Teddy hit him as his manhood and livelihood are on the line. Drew says he can join his family unemployed if he doesn't do as he says. Drew tells Teddy to get on his knees and Teddy does so, much to the dismay of the crowd. Drew asks Teddy to say he's the Chosen One, Teddy does so. Drew says for Teddy to get back on his knees and lay down for him. Teddy does while Drew says he's pathetic. Drew puts a foot on his chest and that's it. Drew goes to set up Teddy for the double arm DDT but Kofi runs down, only to be held back by security. Matt Hardy runs out of the crowd but gets the same treatment as Kofi. Finally some legitimate heat for Drew, this was well done. I still don't like Drew but they are going to desperate measures to get the kid over.

Layla Vs Kelly Kelly. Horrible as one would expect, but not as bad as some of Raw's outings as of late. Kelly picks up the surprising victory.
Josh talks to Jack Swagger, who does his usual bragging.
Vickie is out and demands the crowd pay respect to the most amazing man on the planet, Dolph Ziggler.
Dolph Ziggler Vs Chris Masters. Average to say the least here, I was never fond of Masters even if his work rate has improved. Ziggler picks up the unsurprising victory.
Rey Mysterio&Big Show Vs CM Punk&Jack Swagger. Actually not a bad main-event, but I'm kinda getting tired of seeing Show and Rey team up all the time. Rey wins again. Kane comes in and destroys everything in sight and pays tribute to The Undertaker.
2 1/2 /5
Bottom line. Mediocre to say the least. Smackdown has upped Its game over the past couple weeks big time, but this one is highly forgettable.
