door een korte vakantie de komende week is het mogelijk dat de video's van Raw, Smackdown, Impact,... een beetje vertraging oplopen. We doen ons best om zo snel mogelijk deze video's online te zetten, maar beloven niets.
The following are results from the SmackDown edition set to air tonight and are based on an international broadcast
Welcome to WWE Smackdown and this week we come to you from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio for the go home show before this Sunday’s Survivor Series PPV. And we kick off the voiceover guy re-capping CM Punk’s 362 day reign as WWE Champion and the formation of Team Foley & Team Punk now Team Ziggler.
Sheamus is pacing back and forth in the parking lot of the Q Arena and we go into the arena where Tony Chimel introduces Cleveland’s own, The Miz. The crowd launches into a “Miz Is Awesome” chant and Miz says it’s good to be home and welcomes everyone to the most must see talk show in history MizTV and says in 2 days the WWE hosts Survivor Series and he will be on Team Foley because the WWE Universe voted for him during Raw last Monday as if there were any doubt. He’s on the poster because he is a survivor and has accomplished more than any other Survivor Series participant and he’s not going to blindly fall in line behind any team captain whether it’s Dolph Ziggler or Mick Foley. He then introduces Foley as his guest tonight. Foley takes the mic and says he appreciates Miz having him as his guest and had some reservations of putting him on the ballot during Raw active and calls Miz a tale of two people and wonders who is going to show up on Team Foley this Sunday. Will it be the Wrestlemania main eventing, John Cena defeating. Awesome inducing, self surviving WWE superstar that he knows Miz can be or will it be the vacation taking, chair sitting, make up wearing, weak beard growing Miz who shows up on Smackdown and Raw from time to time and asks which tale of the Miz will show up. Miz says he’s the least of Foley’s problems. He needs to worry about the rest of his team. He has a team that doesn’t like each other, an apex predator that doesn’t play well with others and a cheap shot artist who stole his intercontinental championship. Mick then says he took it upon himself to have a team meeting on MizTV and Kofi Kingston comes out first followed by Team Hell No. Foley then opens up the lines of communication and asks anyone to start and Bryan says Kane is trying to apologize for calling Bryan the weak link of the team but Kane says he wants to thank Miz for being such a great tag team partner Monday night and says his back feels so strong from not having to carry somebody and Bryan says without him, Kane would be roaming basements and scaring little children. Kane said he’d be roaming basements and scaring little children regardless. They then do their arguing over who’s the tag team champion until Kingston breaks it up and Miz tells Kingston last week he went to shake Kingston’s hand and Kingston kicked him in the face. Kingston then tells Miz to take two steps back or he’ll do it again. Foley then tells Kingston and Miz to show Team unity and says it turns out the voice of reason may turn out to be Randy Orton. Orton says he’s spat in Foley’s face many times and he threw Orton into a pile of thumbtacks long ago and says he likes Foley more than any member of his team and says there’s not one member of the team he does like or trust and Team Ziggler comes out. Ziggler calls Team Foley the definition of dysfunction and says that’s pretty sad even for Foley. Ziggler says there’s no ego on his team they are all united behind one charismatic leader and Del Rio says he doesn’t think Ziggler has what it takes to be team leader and there’s only one person who deserves to be leader and it’s not Ziggler. Del Rio says Ziggler doesn’t talk down to him he’s a former world champion and Ziggler says he’s a future world champion and would rather be a future anything than former anything and tells Foley to stay out of it he’s not involved and Foley says actually he is because he ran this place at one time and made some pretty good matches and asked Booker T for the opportunity to make some pretty good matches tonight and he said it was ok with Team Ziggler’s blessing. Foley then makes his first match. Alberto Del Rio & Dolph Ziggler vs Miz & Randy Orton. Ziggler says that’s fine he’s glad Miz quit because Miz couldn’t cut it and got someone way better Wade Barrett. Barrett says Team Ziggler replaced a quitter with a winner and Foley then makes Wade Barrett vs Kane. Sandow then calls for silence and says Team Foley is in disarray. They have a goat faced one word wonder running around with an anger problem, his tag team partner Kane who’s unbridle brutality is the reason for Cody Rhodes’ absence and a neon mute who now claims to have the ability to fly. Kingston says he expected something a little smarter from Sandow and if he wants to experience Kingston’s flying first hand he’ll be glad to show him. Foley then says his job just got simpler because the first match of the night is Kofi Kingston vs Damien Sandow.

Matt Striker and Scott Stanford are on commentary.
(1) 3MB (Heath Slater & Jinder Mahal) beat The Usos. No sign of Drew McIntyre. Slater's hair is now wetted and he is carrying this gimmick while Mahal is just playing along. Slater won with an impaler DDT. Not a terrible tag match with both teams getting offense in. Overall, a generic Superstars tag match to build some momentum for 3MB.
(2) Great Khali beat JTG. Khali's only defensive move of the match... and he botched it. The match was what it was. Khali hit chops and clotheslines, and well, more chops. Great to see Khali after his brain surgery, but the match was lackluster as expected.
- With Linda McMahon's U.S. Senate campaign over, WWE is expected to release wrestlers from their contracts on a more regular basis. According to PWInsider.com, there are people in and out of the organization who feel officials were holding off on purging talent more frequently this year to prevent her campaign from receiving negative press since she branded herself as a job creator. It has been said that the campaign led WWE to temporarily cease cutting multiple talents in one fell swoop as it had in the past.
- Chad Baxter indicated on Twitter Wednesday and Thursday that he has been released from his developmental contract with WWE.
"Good luck with your future endeavours," he wrote in a message yesterday before stating he's a free agent.
He then posted multiple fan messages offering encouragement, including one saying he can "always make an impact."
Baxter, whose real name is Derek Foore, was a Notre Dame collegiate wrestling champion WWE Hall of Famer Gerald Brisco recruited last year. He sparingly competed for NXT until the summer, and then was primarily relegated to non-televised events.
Developmental Wrestler Announces His Departure Posted by Steve Carrier on 11/15/2012 at 04:08 PM
Lucas Di Léo, a French wrestler WWE signed to a developmental contract earlier this year, announced on Facebook Thursday that he has parted ways with the sports-entertainment organization after requesting his contract release.
Di Léo, who appeared as Louis Fontaine for developmental league NXT, said he felt out of place in the company and wanted out. He is scheduled to undergo surgery on his shoulder in the coming days and didn't want WWE to foot the bill after having his mind already made up.
Di Léo also notes that he no plans to join TNA Wrestling. Here is a rough translation of his announcement: "Well, what I write will require a bit of open-mindedness and intelligence. From these facts, I think everyone will not be able to understand ... I say that because in my previous post I pointed out that I was going to give more details in a few times etc etc and in private messages that I 'I received, there was almost all the time the same thing: "Why?'
"So my turn ... Why do not you know to be patient? Why do not you read it right? Why do you think we accountable?
"I say this without any animosity, just human to human ... I always tried to be relatively close to the people who contact me, either for advice or simply encouragement, but sometimes ...
"Anyway, to end rumors that may arise, I have not been fired from the WWE (WWE does not return the injured people) and I'm not going to TNA (...) ...
"I asked to be released from my contract simply because I felt out of place here ... It's not a matter of level or anything, just a matter of honesty. I felt that I still had things to do before I get into this great machine that is the WWE. When I was active in a corner of my head, but from the moment I had to sit, I was working ... The fact is that, frankly, I consider that it is not the time for me to be part of the WWE.
"Which was "hasty" decision is that I had to have surgery in a few days. From here there was a dilemma: take the transaction costs of the WWE and ask to be released after my rehabilitation or be a man and tell them what I thought before they invest money for me. I chose the second option. I decided to leave now because I did not want the WWE pays money for me while in my heart I wanted to leave to explore other horizons.
"Separation was done in very good words, I learned a lot during my months alongside team coaches NXT and I met some very good people!
"I have no bitterness, I left a happy man, taking care not to slam the door behind me. I hope I have satisfied your curiosity ...
"And for questions like, "it goes back to the ICWA? "... I have never left the ICWA.
"Whether I catch this or that French structure, I NXT main event, Raw Smackdown, I am in Mexico, North Pole, Japan, under water, in the snow or whatever, I am part of the ICWA."
As mentioned last week, Triple H is a big fan of Brad Maddox and he will likely be back on WWE TV in early 2013. When they first did the screwjob angle at Hell In a Cell, officials had no idea what the follow-up would be so Ryback destroying Maddox on RAW last week is likely a way to keep him on the backburner for now but keep the door open for his return.
An OVW source noted that Maddox went through all of Rip Rogers' training and was one of the better guys there when he left for WWE. The biggest positive about Maddox is they say he was always working on his weaknesses. If he told he needed work on his mic skills, he worked on them; if they told him he needed work on his look, he worked harder on that.
According to The Wrestling Observer, Kid Kash is now working in
the Ohio Valley Wrestling promotion as part of their working relationship with
Taryn Terrell is also working in OVW now and recently captured the
OVW Women's Championship. No word on if she will eventually become an active
wrestler in TNA or just continue her role as the Knockouts referee.
Mo is getting positive reviews for his work in OVW. He is said to be a fast
learner and also has a positive attitude. One source even reportedly said that,
"King Mo is a great, great man."
Todd Keneley, Mike Tenay and Tazz are our commentators tonight. Newly crowned number one contender James Storm is out to kick off the show. Storm says the last year has been a “long, hard road” but he did it. He hasn’t won any award but he’s here to say thank you to some people. The fans have always been there for him in the Impact Zone and at home. Number two, Storm’s family and three, the people who said Storm could not do it. Storm says the detractors are the fuel that kept him going.
The celebration doesn’t last for too long as Bobby Roode is out with two bottles of beer. Roode says he’s not here to spoil the party, he’s here to join it. He offers Storm a beer, Storm takes it and he has a toast of his own. He toasts Storm for pinning AJ Styles. He sarcastically gives more props to Storm and Storm’s fans because they will watch him fail again at becoming World Champion. Roode brings up Storm’s daughter and family. They are going to have to pick up the pieces when Storm loses, takes his ball and goes home again. Roode knocks Storm’s beer out and takes a swig from his bottle. He’s punches by Storm.

Storm says he’ll be glad to fight Roode. Roode says he’s been fighting for over a year and there’s nothing in it for him. He’s done with Storm. UNLESS! Unless Storm is willing to put up his number one contendership in the brawl. Storm shakes his head no and says he’s worked too hard for the spot.

Hogan calls Styles a main event player but hasn’t moved up from where he was a few years ago. “He’s his own worst enemy,” Hogan says as we head for the show’s first advertisement break.
- Todd Keneley says “you hate to see this,” as we’re welcomed back with replays of the Aces and Eights beatdown of Sting last week. Tons of hammer shots.
We’re set back to the Aces and Eights clubhouse. A masked man asks the Director of Chaos (Gallows) if he thinks he’s done enough to stay in the club despite revealing his identiy. The masked man says they’ll vote tonight but for right now, they need Doc’s coat. Devon says the have business to take care of and he grabs a dart. He throws it at a wall of photos and it lands off-screen. Devon says “that prick deserves it” as the A&8s laugh.

He was points away from wrestling at Bound for Glory for the title and now he can’t win the belt at all.
The year isn’t over and he brings up the holidays. He says a lot of people are thankful for a lot of things but he’s not thankful for anything. That brings out Kazarian and Christopher Daniels.
Daniels says AJ is a crybaby. Despite that, every word AJ just said was accurate. This is the worst year of Styles’ career. Daniels says the source of all of AJ’s problems can be found by looking in the mirror. He calls AJ a broken, flawed, little man. AJ Styles is nothing but a complete and utter failure. Styles says he’s beaten Christopher Daniels a lot more than Daniels has beat him. Daniels has nothing to back it up and he needs a reminder. Styles says he and Daniels should fight one last time to find out who the better man is.
Kazarian cuts Styles off and says Daniels has nothing to gain from wrestling with AJ. AJ is stale. Meanwhile, Kazarian and Daniels are riding high and on top of their game. They’re the real World Tag Team Champions of the World. Daniels disagrees and says this is the perfect time for Daniels-Styles. Daniels says they’re going to find out who the real failure is.

Several Comments on Heyman's Fake Heart Attack Posted by Steve Carrier on 11/14/2012 at 07:45 AM
- The talk about Paul Heyman and CM Punk mocking Jerry Lawler's heart attack on RAW continues on Twitter with several wrestlers weighing in such as Steve Austin and Chris Jericho. The Baltimore Sun's Arda Ocal spoke with some Superstars and got their reactions:
Steve Austin: "I believe in pushing the envelope in an aggressive fashion. But when a guy damn near dies at ringside, let it go. You look at all the contributions Jerry Lawler has made in this business: from a work standpoint, a promo standpoint and then as a broadcaster. I think that's pushing the envelope in the wrong direction. There's better ways to go get real heat than that."
Chris Jericho: "I think it was pretty obvious, don’t you? I kind of expected it. Punk’s promo was awesome. It’s wrestling so you knew it would end up as an angle sooner or later. I got the same complaints when I did the alcoholic angle (earlier this year with CM Punk). It would be like being mad at "Breaking Bad" because the dad was a drug addict or something. It’s just a TV show, after all."
Lance Storm: "Thought it was poor. Both he and Punk are capable to get real heat, no need to sink so low. Also thought it was out of character for Punk so it hurt. Punk is about Best in World and himself. Why bother joking about heart attack it goes nowhere. Interuption was okay and in character. Fake heart attack was cheap and pointless."
WWE's Matt Striker wrote the following on Twitter:
"Watching Paul Heyman makes me feel like I need hand sanitizer"
"I think @Matt_Striker's comment about me is low brow, uncalled for and insensitive. MY FEELINGS ARE HURT!!! cc: @CMPunk"
Cody Rhodes Takes Nasty Fall at WWE Tapings Posted by Steve Carrier on 11/13/2012 at 08:20 PM

Hardy On Why Some ECW Wrestlers Didn't Mesh Well Posted by Steve Carrier on 11/10/2012 at 01:52 PM
Hosts Jack E. Jones and One Inch Biceps welcomed Matt Hardy of Extreme Rising to IYH Wrestling Radio. Matt was on the show to publicize the upcoming Extreme Rising show on Saturday, November 17 from the Golden Dome in Monaca, PA that will be on IPPV (http://www.WWNlive.com). Matt will be wrestling “The Franchise” Shane Douglas in the main event that evening.
Highlights of this interview included the following:
When he wrestled in June for Extreme Rising for the first time, was he unsure how the fans would react to him?
“No, I was pretty sure and I think I pretty much had it to a T. I’m pretty good at being on the pulse of how wrestling fans are going to be. I knew it was going to be a very mixed bag, because wherever I go there’s going to be diehard Matt Hardy/Hardy Boyz fans, which are younger kids or people that followed us through our WWE career; they’re going to be there and they’re going to be supportive regardless of whatever. But then the diehard ECW and extreme-niche fans, because I’m not an extreme original or an ECW original, I knew those people it was going to be an uphill battle. And you know, it’s one of those things in time only you earn their respect, especially when you walk into their promotion and on your debut match you’re in the main event against Jerry Lynn, who is one of the ECW icons. I knew it was going to be a mixed bag for sure. The people that were diehard extreme wrestling fans, they gave me a hard time, which was great. And my fans were there cheering, so it’s OK. As long as I’m invoking emotion from people, it’s fine. I’ll channel it in the appropriate way in the ring. As long as they’re entertained and I’m invoking emotion, I’m good.”
Were there people that didn’t want some of the ECW guys to succeed when they would come over to the WWF?
“I think so...The thing that made ECW so good - Paul Heyman was such a genius booker/promoter because he highlighted everyone’s strengths. I mean, he would take whatever the best qualities were about someone and he would keep pushing that, pushing that, and pushing that and get everything they could out of it, and that’s what gets characters over. That’s what gets characters or wrestlers to connect with the crowd emotionally. Public Enemy, they had their deal; they were hip-hop gangstas and they did the hand motion and they would put people through tables, and they ended up being a huge act. When they came to the WWE and were forced to wrestle a couple matches; I know there were some guys who didn’t like them. They ultimately had a match with the Acolytes which was very very ugly. Taz was another guy who was over huge in ECW. Once he came to WWE, you can see that never translated. Once again, they took away from playing to his strengths and what his character was built around. And the examples keep popping up over and over if you look at Paul Heyman’s ECW originally. Sandman, he came out and he would drink beer and he would cane people, and he was over like crazy and people bought tickets to see him. 911 was another example of a guy who was very limited as far as being a complete wrestler overall but he became a huge star there; he was really over...At WWE sometimes they expect people to be a more well-rounded performer 360 degrees and be able to do everything, and my thought is if it’s business and you’re trying to make money you want your acts to be as over as they possibly can be. And if that means like protecting them in some areas that they’re weak at, then why not do it because it’s your investment in the first place. But that’s not always how the WWE crew thinks.”

NO DQ TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP: Joe and Magnus didn’t waste any time starting a beat down on each other at the bell and immediately brought the match outside of the ring for the No DQ bout. Joe took over the dominance in the match after Magnus had a short offensive outside of the ring. The control went back and forth up until Magnus went outside the ring to get a chair, which he used to take out a charging Joe, which helped bring favor in the match to Magnus. Joe unleashed an offensive of slams and drops that nearly got him the win but resulted in a kick out. It became apparent that Magnus was attempting to beat Joe at his own game through a series of submission attempts that were thwarted by the seasoned submission specialist. Magnus made a later attempt at a pin after a flying elbow drop but yet again Joe managed to kick out. After breaking down Joe a bit more, Magnus made another attempt at the flying elbow drop only to have Joe kick out. In an effort to finish things off Magnus went for the chair outside of the ring but Joe changed up him strategy and was able to take down Magnus and bring him back into the ring for a muscle buster that led to a near pinfall. Joe was able to finally get Magnus into a choke to end the match so he could retain the title.
TARA & JESSE vs. ODB & ERIC YOUNG Eric Young immediately started off by locking up with Knockouts referee Taryn Tarell before the match even started. The Bell rang to kick things off between the two teams. Tara and ODB faced off but Tara immediately tagged Jesse in. ODB showed that she could stand her ground against Jesse. Young and ODB broke down Jesse with some double team moves as well as some solo moves. Jesse managed to find an opening and turned things around in their favor. The new couple managed to get a couple near pinfalls in on Young but could not get the three count. After an attempt at interference from Tara, Tarrell was distracted allowing for ODB to come in and spray her drink into the eyes of Jesse and get Young into position to make the tag. This enabled the momentum Young and ODB needed to set up what turned into ODB body slamming Jesse to the mat and Young planting and elbow drop onto Jesse to get the pin.
X DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP: Both competitors were cautious at the start of the match with a series of holds but Rob Van Dam was able to turn up the heat and unleash an offensive tearing down Joey Ryan. After being tossed by a monkey flip, Ryan left the ring to regroup but was brought back in by RVD. RVD made an attempt to go high risk but Ryan was playing possum and was able to push RVD off the top onto the railing. Ryan took control and was able to get a couple near pinfalls with the closest being after one of his moves called the “Mustache Ride”. The tide turned in RVD’s favor but this didn’t stop Ryan from attempting to cheat, but was still thwarted by RVD who followed it up with a five star frog splash into a pin for the win. After celebrating his win and leaving the ring Matt Morgan came out to give RVD the carbon footprint and leave him there motionless.
DOC FROM ACES & EIGHTS vs. JOSEPH PARK It was apparent from the start that this would be a very untraditional match but could be very interesting given the size of the two competitors. Joseph Park made a series of attempts to bring down DOC but was unable to do anything. After finally connecting with a hit, DOC chased the obviously scared Park around the ring. Park managed to get DOC to injury himself accidentally at which point Park went to work trying to wear down the injured hand. DOC was able to take advantage of the inexperience of park and wear down the attorney. Out of seemingly nowhere Park was able to muster up some strength get in a few hits but DOC found an equalizer that managed to make Park bleed, which seemed to trigger something that we haven’t seen before, but Park seemed to snap back out of it. After much back and forth DOC was able to get the pin in on Joseph Park. After the pin DOC stayed and beat down on Park but fortunately Bully Ray came in to help the injured park.
TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP The match started out with Daniels and Chavo locking up and the two competitors exchanging dominance in the match from the start. Kazarian and Daniels were able to control the first part of the match for the most part as they both worked at breaking down Chavo. Finally, Hernandez and Chavo pulled it back around and build momentum in their favor but it was short lived as Daniels and Kazarian restarted their domination. Neither team ever seemed to be able to get a decisive advantage throughout the entire match. In the end Hernandez and Chavo Guerrero managed to retain their titles after Chavo implemented a cross body onto Daniels.
#1 CONTENDER'S MATCH This match determines the #1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title with the losers not having a chance at the title until after Bound for Glory. Roode immediately left for ringside at the start of the match to allow for Styles and Storm to duke it out in the ring. After a brief amount of back and forth Roode pulled Storm out and started a beatdown on Storm but was broken up by Styles who flew onto them. Roode and Styles brought it back into the ring and went back and forth but led to Styles dominating the match against Storm and Roode but he seemed a little less phenomenal as though he was psyching himself out by making mistakes you don’t normally see from the phenomenal one. After a mistake that sidelined Styles, Storm and Roode went to work on each other. Finally, Styles found his way back into the ring and was able to build dominance to actually take out Roode and get to work on Storm. After a near pinfall against Storm, Storm was able to reverse things build up enough momentum for a near pinfall on Styles but had no success. Roode came back into the fold and dominated both Styles and Storm. . Strangely enough at one point Storm and Roode worked together and wealmost saw what looked like a Beer Money reunion. All three competitors could not seem to get the pinfall but Storm took out Styles with a Last Call Superkick and was able to get the pin for the win to become the new #1 Contender for the heavyweight title.
KURT ANGLE VS. DEVON Devon seemed hesitant to get into the ring with the Olympic Gold Medalist, but once in the ring the sound of the bell meant it was on between these two competitors. The two brawled and wore down each other but after being driven into a ring post Angle seemed to lose the advantage and was broken down in the ring by Devon. However, Angle’s resilience allowed for him to stay in the game and work towards turning things around in the war with The Aces and 8s. Angle built up an offensive and was able to lock in several near pinfalls but not success. The ring was surrounded by members of the Aces and 8s before the end of the match, which nearly distracted Angle but he was able to force Devon to tap and immediately leave the ring to avoid a beat down by the gang.
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE LADDER MATCH: The match started with the two facing off in the ring but before long the two kicked things into high gear for the main event ladder match. Both brought things outside of the ring in order to get the ladders to access the titles dangling from above. A lot of painful looking assaults were implemented in order to tear down each other and incapacitate them long enough to get the titles. Hardy in an attempt to throw Aries into the supports of the ladder had things reversed on him and he accidentally jumped into the ladder which left him reeling in pain and ended up outside of the ring. Hardy still out from earlier was trapped by Aries inside a ladder outside of the ring but before Aries reached the top he noticed that Hardy had escaped and while investigating Hardy made it to the other side and was scaling the ladder. Aries promptly noticed and knocked him off the ladder causing him to have a very dangerous looking fall. Hardy came back with a vengeance and took things to a new level against Aries. Hardy managed to come close yet again but was thwarted by Aries. Aries went to make an attempt to climb the ladder, however he was stopped by Hardy who implemented a twist of fate from the top of the ladder! Following this Hardy laid him out with a swanton bomb and went for the titles, however Aries had the controls and moved up the titles. Hardy had to leave to take care of Aries and bring into play a 20 foot ladder to reach the titles. What happened next really needs to be seen to be believed… in the end Jeff Hardy was able to scale the ladder and grab the titles to retain! STILL WORLD CHAMPION - JEFF HARDY!!!
