WWE SMACKDOWN RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR FEB. 7
Living on a jet, making love to someone else’s dreams. Say it again, she puts her leg up, well, calls it good luck, do you know what I mean? Do you remember? Well I remember. Oh no, oh no, dream machine, so damn cool she can turn on the night. The more she gets, well, the more that she needs, do you know what I mean? In any case, I’m gonna liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with a hype video for Goldberg’s appearance tonight.
Thence to the intro video.
Commentary hypes up Daniel Bryan’s return and a #1 contender’s match for the women’s title.
John Morrison and the Miz make their entrance together.
They do the introductory spiel for the Dirt Sheet and then show us a short film entitled Once Upon a Time on the Dirt Sheet, which is basically a hype reel for their upcoming title match that riffs on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and also features Lance “Can I be serious for a minute” Storm, Johnny Ace, and Mr. Miz in small parts.
Oscar-worthy? Maybe. SmackDown Tag Team Championship-worthy? Definitely. Now everybody wants to hang out with the cool kids, but they’re not good enough.
Enter New Day.
Kofi Kingston gets on the mic and puts Mr. Miz’s athleticism over and says that he’s actually Mr. Miz’s favorite WWE Superstar. Miz and Morrison say they have no right to talk because they’ve dominated every team SmackDown has to offer to become #1 contenders to their titles.
Enter the Usos.
They say “Whoa!” a lot before asking if they really just said they’ve beat everybody, because they’ve never beat the Usos. They welcome the lads to the Uso Penitentiary—
Enter Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode.
Or well, their music plays as Miz and Morrison beat New Day down! The Usos make the save and the other team of heels come down to ringside and we go to break.
Goldberg WWE returns
But Goldberg and Undertaker shouldn’t really be blamed for a poor match. This is on WWE for making the bout longer than it needed to be, and they should have known Goldberg – who hadn’t wrestled since WrestleMania 33against Brock Lesnar two years ago, was going to have a tough time dazzling in the ring. Ditto for Undertaker, who last fought at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in November.
