The bastard son of Mr. McMahon continues to work magic for Finlay, helping him to a win over MVP. But he was oh-so-close to a thrashing at the hands of Raw GM William Regal, who relented at the last moment.

RICHMOND, Va. – New year, same bad luck for Chuck Palumbo. The revved-up Superstar joined Michelle McCool in a Mixed Tag Team Match on SmackDown against Kenny Dykstra & Victoria, but the two friends were unable to find a way to prevail. Palumbo has had a string of bad luck recently, and his frustrations erupted after the loss; Palumbo verbally assaulting McCool, and then left her behind as he rode out of the Richmond Coliseum on his motorcycle.
Hoe-down Showdown Jimmy Wang Yang & Shannon Moore continued their impressive 2007 hot streak into the new year when they faced former WWE Tag Team Champions Deuce & Domino. The boys from the Other Side of the Tracks have been searching for a win for some time, but their 2008 began on a sour note. Yang & Moore hope they can carry their recent success to Tuesday night, challenging reiging champions John Morrison & The Miz for the gold in a 15 Minutes of Fame Match on ECW on Sci Fi. Will WWE's resident redneck Yang and his partner Moore's 15 minutes end with a golden celebration?

Brazen Baller After being defeated by Finlay in the Beat the Clock Challenge, United States Champion MVP was seen in the locker room area on his cell phone, still seething. 2007 was an impact year for MVP, but the Ballin’ Superstar has his sights set even higher in 2008. His first resolution: To end the career of the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair. What plans does MVP have for the 16-time World Champion, a man he has beaten before?
Clock strikes 619 The Beat the Clock Challenge on SmackDown saw the Superstars vying for the best time in order to earn the opportunity to face Edge for the World Heavyweight Championship at Royal Rumble.

WWE's decision to go with Jonathan Coachman as JBL's replacement as a SmackDown! announcer came as a surprise to many. WWE kept the news very quiet up until last weekend's tapings. A lot of people in the Smackdown lockerroom expeted Tazz to be JBL's replacement. Tazz and Michael Cole had great chemistry on SmackDown before Tazz was shifted over to ECW at the end of 2006. Virtually all of SmackDown's top stars wanted Tazz to replace JBL. Jonathan Coachman got mixed feedback on his first broadcast and management understands it's a work in progress.
Jimmy Wang Yang, Shannon Moore & Kelly Kelly def. The Miz, John Morrison & Layla Big Daddy V def. Colin Delaney Shelton Benjamin def. James Curtis ECW Champion CM Punk def. Chavo Guerrero (count-out)
RICHMOND, Va. – As 2008 commenced, there was not a person in the Land of the Extreme who didn’t plan on making sure this would be his year. For Chavo Guerrero and others who made such a bold resolution, however, 2008 didn’t exactly start off according to plan.
Kelly Kelly had spent much of the final months in 2007 fighting off The Miz’s attempts to make her life a living hell. She had done a good job until recently, earning unexpected victories against her opponents, but the self-proclaimed “chick magnet” found a way to get to the blonde with Layla & Victoria.
Tuesday night, The Miz took Layla and added co-WWE Tag Team Champion John Morrison to his team of three to take on Kelly, Shannon Moore & Jimmy Wang Yang. Thanks to the help from her supporting cast, Kelly was able to start off 2008 the right way when Yang pinned The Miz. This win makes it two straight for the duo of Moore & Yang, who defeated the WWE Tag Team Champions two weeks ago. If things continue in this direction, gold may not be The Miz & John Morrison’s color this year.
Later in the evening, Colin Delaney took part in his second match ever, in as many Tuesday nights. And if he didn’t think his first match against Shelton Benjamin could have been worse, he was wrong. Big Daddy V made a meal out of Delaney, just moments after the athlete admitted how nervous he was in an interview with Tazz.
Speaking of Delaney’s opponent from last week, Shelton Benjamin continued to prove to our fans that he is ECW’s “Gold Standard” when he defeated James Curtis. Benjamin remains undefeated since joining the ECW roster. With three Intercontinental Championships and two WWE Tag Team Titles on his résumé, Shelton is ready to add the ECW Championship to his collection of gold.
Chavo Guerrero got his opportunity to finish the job he started two weeks ago on ECW Champion CM Punk. But even with the new year, time wasn’t on Chavo’s side, as he was counted out in a contest that, if won, would have delivered a chance at the title. More on this story…
Mr. Kennedy def. Shawn Michaels Umaga def. "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan (Royal Rumble Qualifying Match) Women's Champion Beth Phoenix def. Melina and Mickie James Hornswoggle vs. William Regal (no contest) Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy vs. Santino Marella (no contest, non-title) Ric Flair def. Triple H (disqualification)
GREENSBORO, N.C. – On a night like New Year’s Eve, most people wait until midnight to pop the champagne. But Mr. Kennedy just couldn’t contain himself. The loudmouth from Green Bay, Wisc. celebrated early this year after defeating his rival Shawn Michaels.
Kennedy had promised to prevail over HBK before the end of 2007, and he did just that with only a couple of hours to spare.
After succumbing to Sweet Chin Music at Armageddon, the bleached blonde bomber vowed that he’d had enough. But it was only Monday night, however, that Kennedy was finally able to keep his End of Year resolution. Photos | Watch the video...
Royal Entrance New Year’s Eve brought with it the first qualifying match for the Royal Rumble pitting “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan against Umaga. Chants of “U-S-A” were drowned out by the revving of the Samoan Bulldozer as Umaga pounded Hacksaw to secure a spot at the Rumble on Jan. 27. Photos
Gashed Hopes The sparks continued to fly between JBL and Chris Jericho. During the Lonestar Loudmouth’s showy Raw debut, Y2J charged in and the two exchanged blows, which opened a nasty gash across JBL’s nose before a throng of officials were able to pull him away. Photos | Watch the video...
Three Times a Lady In a Triple Threat Title Match, Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix defended her gold against Melina and Mickie James. In a topsy-turvy contest, the Glamazon finally managed to toss Mickie from the ring and pin Melina after an impressive Fisherman’s Suplex. Photos | Watch the video...
Brass Kisser In another test of “tough love” arranged by Mr. McMahon, William Regal battled the Chairman’s bastard son, Hornswoggle. But when punch came to shove, the Raw General Manager just couldn’t bring himself to break the little guy’s face with a pair of brass knuckles handed to him by Mr. McMahon.
In the end, Hornswoggle waddled from the ring and left Regal to take a verbal thrashing from his boss. Photos | Watch the video...
Brother’s Keeper No line is too brash to cross for Randy Orton. As Jeff Hardy prepared to divebomb Santino Marella during their match Monday night, the WWE Champion came on the Titantron to show Hardy that he had just leveled his brother Matt with a shot to the elder Hardy’s post-surgery appendix. The concerned Intercontinental Champion sprinted to his brother’s aid and was reminded of just how low Orton is willing to go to keep his title. Photos | Watch the video...
Life Goes On In his Win-or-Retire Match against Triple H, Ric Flair managed to survive another day by defeating his longtime friend and protégé. The Nature Boy had a little “help” when William Regal, perhaps hoping to please Mr. McMahon, wailed on Flair with brass knuckles causing the seasoned veteran to win by disqualification.
-- Since returning from his suspension, Harry Smith has been limited to WWE Heat. Before, he was receiving a pretty big push on RAW. His suspension was of no political value as an FCW guy, but was as a guy on TV who they were pushing. The result of the drug test was known before they made the call to put him on television.
