Hornswoggle & Finlay def. The Great Khali & Ranjin Singh ECW Champion CM Punk, Rey Mysterio & Kane def. Big Daddy V, Mark Henry & United States Champion MVP Santa Festus def. Santa Deuce (Santa Match) Batista def. World Heavyweight Champion Edge, Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder def. Batista (DQ; Handicap Match for World Heavyweight Championship)
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – As 2007 cools down, WWE Superstars continued to heat things up in Upstate New York. Rey Mysterio teamed with ECW Champion CM Punk & Kane to defeat Big Daddy V, Mark Henry & United States Champion MVP on SmackDown.
Both Punk and Mysterio were looking for retribution against the Franchise Playa; Punk from this past Tuesday on ECW on Sci Fi, when MVP attacked him after their match, and Mysterio after MVP was counted out of their bout at Armageddon. Teammate Kane also was hoping to continue the rivalry between him and Big Daddy V. On SmackDown, the Straightedge Superstar had the Master of the 619 and the Big Red Machine by his side, and the trio was able to overcome the Dominant Force in WWE, the World’s Strongest Man & the U.S. Champion.
Departing deity JBL’s Farewell Address to Friday Night SmackDown showed that the self-proclaimed “wrestling god” is still full of the fire that made him one of WWE’s most controversial (and successful) Superstars. (WATCH) The former WWE Champion has jumped out of retirement and will head to Raw to resurrect his in-ring career, leaving SmackDown without the musings of “the man who single-handedly changed the face of The CW Network.” JBL also had some harsh parting words for his now-former broadcast colleague, Michael Cole, in a WWE Mobile on AT&T exclusive video.
Peaks and valleys Continuing the rivalry between The Great Khali and Finlay, the Punjabi giant teamed with his translator Ranjin Singh, making his in-ring debut, in a tag match against the Irishman & Hornswoggle. The antics of Mr. McMahon’s li’llegitimate son seemed to rub off on Finlay Friday night as the two green-clad Superstars made Singh’s SmackDown debut an unforgettable one. The Irishman & his pint-sized partner defeated the duo of Khali & Singh, but our fans were left to wonder why Khali watched from outside the ring as the Irish tandem had their way with his translator. (WATCH)
Swan song for 16-Time Champ? Ric Flair’s unparalleled career has spanned 35 years in sports-entertainment, but this New Year’s Eve on Raw, that calling may come to an end when Flair faces longtime friend Triple H in a Career Threatening Match. In what may be his last appearance on Friday Night SmackDown, the “Nature Boy” assured our fans in Rochester, “If I’m going to have one last fight, there is no competitor I would rather face than The Game.” (WATCH)
When Ric Flair steps into the ring on New Year’s Eve with his livelihood on the line; will the mutual respect he and Triple H have for each other help or hinder the 16-time World Champion’s quest to continue his career?
Saint Nick slugfest In a special Santa Match, “Santa” Festus fought “Santa” Deuce just days before Christmas. When the bell rang, Festus transformed from nice to naughty, and he dismantled Deuce to get the win. While Festus and his “biscuits ‘n’ gravy” partner hope the holidays will bring them closer to tag gold, Deuce & Domino are still in search of a holiday miracle, or at least a victory to get them back on the road to tag supremacy.
Spicing it up The date between Jamie Noble & Michelle McCool happened on Friday Night SmackDown, and the ever-fiery Superstar made sure that the All-American Diva would have a night to remember. Noble treated the beauty to some fine-dining, and then showered her with a gift to commemorate the occasion. Will McCool and Noble head out on the town again? (WATCH)
Three’s company World Heavyweight Champion Edge received an early present from his love, SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero. She placed the Rated-R Superstar alongside the newly-named Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder in a 3-on-1 Handicap Match against Batista with the title on the line. Just as it appeared The Animal had recaptured the gold, Vickie had another gift for Edge when she changed the ruling and restarted the match. The Ultimate Opportunist and his friends Hawkins & Ryder capitalized, destroying Batista. Read the full story…
NEWS FROM THURSDAY'S "iMPACT!" BROADCAST ON SPIKE TV Angle vs. Cage announced for the January 6 "Final Resolution" PPV By Bill Banks
There are several news items to report from Thursday's special holiday "iMPACT!" broadcast on SpikeTV, including two matches announced for the January 6 "Final Resolution" Pay-Per-View event!
- It was announced during the broadcast that Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle will defend the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at "Final Resolution" against "The Instant Classic" Christian Cage!
- Cage and Angle got into a brawl at the end of the holiday broadcast after Angle took down Santa. Cage hit the ring and attempted to place the World Champion in his own Ankle Lock submission, but the Olympic gold medalist escaped from the ring.
- By winning their bout against Team 3D and Johnny Devine on "iMPACT!", the Motor City Machineguns and X Division Champion "Black Machismo" have earned the right to face them at the January 6 Pay-Per-View in an Ultimate X Match.
- Eric Young had a Christmas party on the broadcast, which included his entire family as well as a number of the TNA superstars. However, the festivities came to an abrupt halt when Samoa Joe arrived looking for Matt Morgan. Joe (who is in the middle of contract negotiations) told Morgan that Cornette could stick his latest offer. Joe then proceeded to trash the entire party in a fit of rage.
- In the Santa's Workshop Knockout Streetfight, Awesome Kong defeated Christy Hemme to get the win. Following the bout, TNA Women's Champion Gail Kim hit the ring to exact some revenge on Kong as the two had to be separated by TNA security.
- In a Reindeer Ladder Match, it was Kaz defeating "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles, which forced the humiliated Styles to wear a reindeer outfit to end the broadcast. Styles suffered a similar fate last month when he lost a bout on Thanksgiving and was forced to wear a turkey outfit!
Shannon Moore & Jimmy Wang Yang def. WWE Tag Team Champions John Morrison & The Miz Shelton Benjamin def. Local Kenny Dykstra def. Nunzio ECW Champion CM Punk def. United States Champion Montel Vontavious Porter (disqualification)
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The Land of the Extreme turned upside down on ECW on Sci Fi Tuesday night, as champions licked their wounds and challengers celebrated.
The most confident tandem in sports-entertainment, WWE Tag Team Champions John Morrison & The Miz, kicked off the evening when they took on Shannon Moore & Jimmy Wang Yang. Our fans on ECW Fan Feedback asked to see the rematch of these two tag teams, and WWE delivered. Since upsetting MVP & Matt Hardy and taking their titles, Morrison & The Miz have been able to put aside their personal differences for the good of remaining champions. It was a different story when they entered the ring for a rematch of last week's bout, however, as Moore & Yang's hard work since their last meeting paid off with a win.
After Moore & Yang’s victory over the WWE Tag Team Champions, it’s hard not to question the chemistry and communication between the Shaman of Sexy and the self-proclaimed “chick magnet.” Is a common goal truly enough to keep these competitors working efficiently together? Or is the gap between them, initially sparked by their personal desires to unseat CM Punk as ECW Champion, too much to overcome?
Shelton Benjamin had a better night than Morrison & The Miz. The man who considers himself to be the “Gold Standard” in ECW has yet to suffer defeat since joining the roster, though our fans and Tazz called into question his most recent opponent. A hometown athlete taking part in his first match was no contest for Benjamin, who announced once again before leaving the arena that there "ain’t no stopping him now."
Speaking of new Superstars, Kofi Kingston offered a tour of his home, Jamaica. He brought another message to ECW, continuing to warn the roster that he intends on bringing trouble to Tuesday night paradise. (WATCH)
Later in the night, Nunzio dressed for the holiday season. Even after setting the bar so high with his Halloween costume, Nunzio still did not disappoint. Unfortunately, while he succeeded in impressing with his elf outfit, he fell short in his match against Kenny Dykstra.
Capping off the night, United States Champion Montel Vontavious Porter boasted his superiority to ECW Champion CM Punk. WWE’s highest-paid Superstar didn't prove himself within the rules, though, as he was disqualified in the main event. Chavo Guerrero made a surprise appearance and added to Punk’s already difficult night with an attack. (WATCH) More on this story…
In a recent interview with IGN.com, Jeff Hardy gave an update on Matt Hardy's condition after he had an emergency appendectomy last month. Jeff said, "Matt's good, he's at home, his appendix burst when he was in Tampa, so he goes home, he's out of the hospital one week, and he starts having chills and fevers. He went back in and had to get 40 more cc's of infection out of his toe. Now, this is the best he's felt since this all started."
Internally, the feeling on Mr. Kennedy is that his current program with Shawn Michaels is a "sink or swim" opportunity for him. The feeling is that if doesn't rise to the occasion to stand out in his program feud with HBK, he'll be relegated to mid-card status for the foreseeable future. According to one source, he's listening to pretty much anyone and everyone for advice on how to improve in the ring, including creative team writers. He used to be very close with Steve Austin, but Austin said in a recent interview that he is listening to too many people. Kennedy is said to have little confidence in his own instincts as a performer, which might explain why he's often trying new things and different finishers in his matches as of late.

BUFFALO, N.Y. – With a partnership forged by the fires of mutual respect, World Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Hardcore Holly proved once again that they can withstand the heat.
Last week, the pair captured the World Tag Team Championship from Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch during Raw’s 15th Anniversary Spectacular. As if to reinforce that victory, Rhodes and Holly met the challenge of the Southern-fried duo again this week. After a series of mistakes by the former champions, Rhodes managed to lay Cade out for the three-count, assuring that he and Holly will be polishing the championship gold for at least a while longer.
Like a couple of outcast exchange students roaming the halls of high school, Carlito and Santino Marella were bound to find each other. The Italian Stallion and the Caribbean Bad Apple joined forces Monday night and made an immediate impact by defeating former two-time Tag Team Champions Paul London & Brian Kendrick.
Naughty and Nice
Mickie James, Maria, Kelly Kelly & Michelle McCool took on Melina, Jillian, Layla & Victoria in a Santa’s Little Helper Tag Match on Monday, giving guys eight more gifts to put on their wish lists. In the end, Mickie James earned the pin for her team.
Suits vs. Skins
At the behest of a despondent Mr. McMahon, who was seething over his humiliation at Raw XV, Triple H was forced to battle both William Regal & Jonathan Coachman in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match. Despite the odds, The Game disposed of the “suits” by administering a Pedigree to a woeful Coachman. Video
Knowing his next time in the ring could be his last, the legendary Ric Flair proved again that he’s not ready to throw in the towel. The resilient “Naitch” faced off against Umaga and defeated the Samoan Bulldozer by count-out. Story | Video
In an explosive tag team match, Jeff Hardy & Shawn Michaels battled Randy Orton & Mr. Kennedy. In what may be a sign of things to come in their title match at the Royal Rumble, Hardy dropped the Swanton Bomb on the WWE Champion for the win. Story | Video
NoDQ.com > WWE > Some live fan notes from WWE Armageddon
Posted by Bobby Spade on 12/16/2007 at 11:58 PM
Jmart sent this in:
Just got back from it live. Here's some notes:
-The 3 Edges really confused the live crowd
-Undertaker's entrance was phenominal live. As was virtually every other entrance
-Biggest pop during a match was when Jericho moved Orton into the center of the ring, right before JBL interfered
-Tons of Kennedy shirts being worn
-Lillian fell right before announcing Beth Phoenix as the winner. Funny
because at a raw show here back in June of 06, Charlie Hass caused her
to sprain her wrist by accidentally bouncing her off the ring apron.
She is one tough diva though, I must say, props
-Pre ppv match was John Morrison and The Miz vs. Jesse and Festus. Jesse and Festus got the clean win
-After the ppv went off the air, Undertaker walked to the back
while his music played. Batista then got up and left high fiving a few
of the fans on his way to the back. Lillian then thanked everyone for
-Crowd was mostly pro-HHH, and suprisingly some were anti-Hardy
-Overall it was a pretty good show, crowd was pretty hot through
out. Edge's victory got a decent pop. However, it lacked that one great
match that would of made it a great show. IE a street fight, or ladder
match, something different
