Notes From Last Night's SmackDown/ECW House Show In Tupelo, MS

Rajah.com reader Adam Gore reporting:

Nothing major happened during the show… Only things I would make note of from the matches was Rey favoring his left arm (shaking it out as if trying to get feeling back in it) after the match was over… Taker was favoring his right hip and was hitting it as he left the ring with Kane… He took some pretty hard bumps with Henry and V in the match…

Overall it was one of the better house shows I have seen… Crowd was into it and the wrestlers really played well to crowd reactions while working the matches clean and quick… There was only one messed up move on the night that I can remember and that was a double clothes line where Miz over sold and Hawkins no sold the move and just fell almost like he fainted…

Funny side notes:

When Burke was walking back up the entrance a fan reached out and slapped him on the stomach which led to an altercation between Burke and the fan that was in the age range of 13-15 years old… I would say it was in character at first, but then got heated after a few exchanging of words…

The during the Big V & Mark Henry vs Taker & Kane match – Matt Striker was running from Taker and put his hand on the guard rail and a kid that was 7 or 8 hit his hand… Striker played it off like a pro over hyping the hit and crying to the big security guy who “talked” to the fan…

The start to the Edge vs Rey main event… Edge messed with all the fans around the ring wearing Rey mask and there was a 4 or 5 year old with a Rey mask and signs… Edge stole the first sign and tore it up in front of the kid – the little kid started climbing the railing with full intentions to “get” Edge… Once again a great play on the crowd – Edge ran away as if he was semi-scared of the kid… The kid got his brother’s sign and Edge once again rolled out of the ring – tore it up and this time the dad had to catch the kid who had one leg over the rail with a clinched fist… Of course, Rey countered by rolling out of the ring and giving the kid his shirt… Great match

After the match – Rey spent about 20 mins going around signing autographs, taking pictures, and climbed the railing to sign shirt, mask, and take pictures with a kid in a wheelchair that was a big Rey fan…

Their was a pretty good crowd outside after the show… Burke taunted the fans and Benjamin signed one or two autographs before “turning” on the fans… Someone taunted him saying “South Carolina Sucks” and then I said “Steve Spurier Can’t Play Golf Either” which he said “Now that was funny” before leaving… Miz played to the crowd as he left and Taker was really struggling to walk to his car with McCool carrying his bags and opening his door for him…

The new guy (Jamaican Character) spent about 15 mins outside with the fans signing just about everyone’s autographs and talking to them…

He didn’t look good in his match vs Domino… Chants of boring quickly came through – he hit a couple of moves that was above average, but nothing to take note about… His mortal combat-like stance really sucked too…

Nattie Neidhart looked really good in her tag match… She actually carried the match with Layla spending most of the time on the apron… Look for a great feud between her and McCool once she gets a push… She too spent about 5 minutes with the fans before apologizing and going to her car because she was cold… Guess that is what happens when you were a thin skirt barely covering business – which I did not mind… lol
The crown jewel of the night…

After a long wait on Rey to come out… Rey, MVP, and Chavo got in their van – when the crowd started chanting “Rey! Rey! Rey!” he came over to the fans (without mask) then the van pulled up next to him less than 10 ft away from the fans and MVP grabbed him and threw him in the back (kidnap fashion) and sped off leaving about 20 fans cussing mad with me and my friend laughing at the gimmick and the fans…

Love the site man – keep up the hard work!
