ECW Spoilers for June 17, 2008.

ECW
Hornswoggle d. Armando Estrada with the Tadpole Splash. It was purely comedy. Hornswoggle ran away, pulling out a squirt gun and spraying him with water. When he realized that didn’t work, he ran with Armando chasing him. He pulled out a toy mallet and started hitting him with it. He lured him outside where Finlay was hiding underneath the ring with a huge Super Soaker and sprayed him. Finlay may have hit him after that because he rolled him into the ring knocked out so Hornswoggle could give him the Splash.

Layla danced for the crowd, only to stop as the crowd wasn’t giving her any love, even though she dances WAY better than Kelly Kelly. She said that might be the last time they see her dance, and she hopes she gets traded to a brand where the fans could appreciate her.

Evan Bourne d. Matt Striker with the SSP (I’m surprised they brought back the Shooting Star, but it was nice to see it again.) After the Evan Bourne/Matt Striker match, Mike Knox ambushed Bourne and attacked him for “last week” (the night before???)

Kofi Kingston d. Mike Knox via DQ. Shelton was on the offense until he went for his patented screw kick, in which Kofi dodged and hit Mike Knox, who was coming from behind to help out. Knox and Benjamin argued as Kofi went up the ramp.

Like Nando said, Teddy Long gives Finlay and Hornswoggle the Tag Team title fight with Miz and Morrison at Night of the Champions with Finlay nailing him with the shillelagh after Miz asked if Long was serious about giving them the title shot.

CM Punk d. John Morrison with the GTS. As Punk was celebrating in the ring and Morrison was stumbling up the ramp, Miz comes by with an icepack over where Finlay hit him, and says Morrison is still one half of the Tag Team championship.

Teddy Long brings out Big Show and Kane for a “confrontation”. Big Show said they were rivals and tag team partners but at Night of the Champions, he’s going after he wants. Kane said Show knows him and that he’ll do whatever it takes to keep the title, in which Show said he’s a sick, sadistic freak. Mark Henry comes out and says he doesn’t care who’s the champ, after Night of the Champions, he’s going after the champ. After Show and Kane double chokeslam Henry, they continue to argue until the show ends, as both leave to applause.

WWE – Smackdown tapings Results for 6/13

SmackDown spoiler taped 6/7/08 to air 6/13/08 (Friday the 13th) from Fresno, CA
MVP’s VIP Lounge segment was taped prior to the official start of SmackDown.  Tonight’s guest is Rey Mysterio.  Rey gives the crowd an update on his condition and rehab.  He will be back real soon.   MVP makes a few racial remarks geared towards Mysterio and the majority of the crowd.  The segment ends with no physical encounter.
SmackDown opening credits.
Before the cameras resumed rolling, Hawkins and Ryder wheel Vickie Guerrero to the Ring.  We are going to have a contract signing.
SmackDown begins and the roof explodes.  The amount of heat directed toward Vickie was impressive.  I was sitting in the 4th row and I could not really hear Vickie’s promo.  Vickie calls out Batista.  She tells him that Edge already signed the contract.  She tells Batista that it is a standard contract but there were 2 amendments.  1st amendment, Batista has to win another match before he can face Edge at Night of Champions.  His next opponent will be The Great Khali.  Batista leaves the ring.  Vickie calls up to Batista and tells him the 2nd amendment is, he must defeat The Great Khali tonight or he will suffer the same fate as The Undertaker, he will be banned from WWE.
WWE Tag Team Champion John Morrison w/ The Miz def. Finlay w/ Hornswoggle.  One on one match where Morrison rolls up Finlay to get the win.
Mark Henry cuts a promo on The Big Show.  Showing the world what his face looks like now, and a picture of what he will do to the Big Show’s face. (Instead of 1 black eye Show will have 2 black eyes.)
Another promo, Edge and Vickie.  Edge talks about Night of Champions and makes references to the demise of The Undertaker.  CM Punk walks in.  He congratulates the couple.  He then brings up Money in the Bank.  The vignette ends with Punk saying he may just cash in MITB during Edge’s wedding.
Mark Henry def. Tommy Dreamer.  Henry hits his World’s Strongest Slam for the pin after a short match.
Now we go backstage to Edge and Vickie again who are now talking to a wedding planner.  MVP interrupts the two.  MVP wants to renegotiate his contract with Vickie.  Vickie is reluctant to do so, but she said if MVP did them a favor she would look into it.  Vickie and Edge asks MVP to take care of CM Punk.
Cherry def. Maryse.  With what appeared at first to be a single arm DDT but it might have been a double arm.  It was sloppy either way.
MVP def. CM Punk via DQ.  Crowd was very dead for this match.  This was easily the longest match of the night.  MVP gets control of Punk’s MITB briefcase.  While MVP was in the corner Punk hits the running knee driving the briefcase into MVP’s skull.  Punk celebrates to the crowd and that is when the referee turns around, sees the briefcase, and DQ’s Punk.
Chavo Guerrero and Bam Neely come out to the ring.   Chavo puts over Edge’s and Vickie’s wedding and then introduces the United States Champ, saying that he will beat him at Night of Champions.
WWE United States Champion Matt Hardy def. Chuck Palumbo.  Matt Hardy used his Twist of Fate for the victory.   Chavo then announces the winner of the match and the “loser at Night of Champions”, Matt Hardy.
Jesse and Festus def. Deuce and Domino.  Festus had one of the biggest pops of the night during the match.  Festus picks up the victory.
After the match, Deuce and Domino get into it with each other and a brawl takes place between the two of them.  Is this the end of the team of Deuce and Domino?
The Great Khali vs. Batista is next!
