Smackdown 2/21/12 – GMs Face Off

This Live Super Smackdown starts with music and pyro.

In Ring Segment

Lilian announces D-Bry to the ring. He comes out with AJ in tow. AJ in a very cropped tank and tight gray skinny jeans. Stills from Sheamus attacking D-Bry after the Elimination Chamber Sunday. D-Bry clears his throat on mic. He says in July when he win the MITB contract and said he was going to main event WrestleMania, not a single person that believed him. Yet here he stands as our World Heavyweight Champion! And, he’s heading to the main event of WrestleMania! D-Bry says Santino was trying to channel Rocky Balboa going into Elimination Chamber, but D-Bry’s a role model, the real Rocky story. Santino, Khali, Cody, Wade – ‘What?’ between each name – Big Show. He beat them all! We want Rocky? “Yo AJ, I did it!” Yes, yes, yes! But, as he was celebrating, physically spent after defeating five other men in the most brutal match ever constructed… “CM Punk!” chants fill the arena. It was ruined. His moment was ruined by Sheamus. No pop for Sheamus. Now it’s his turn. He’s going to ruin Sheamus’ moment at WrestleMania. He’ll show Sheamus and everyone over the world that he’ll be victorious. Just like tonight, he’ll be victorious over Punk. Heat for that. We want to talk about the best in the…

“Awesome!” Miz’s music hit and he comes out with a smirk on his face. Miz and his ego climbs in the ring. Miz says to look at D-Bry, the World Heavyweight Champion. Who’a thunk it? D-Bry was wrong, so wrong. He wasn’t the only one to believe he’d becomes a World Champion. Miz mentored him to become Champ. From that first day, Miz knew he had the skill, determination and temperament to become Champion. He’s not out there asking for thanks, or steal his spotlight. He’s there to congratulate him for being in the main event of WrestleMania, like Miz did last year. As he continues in Miz’s footsteps, and embarrass Sheamus at WrestleMania, he thinks they should form a tag team. Not like any other tag team…

Sheamus cuts Miz off. Sheamus to the ring with a smile on his face. Sheamus takes Miz’s mic. Sheamus congratulates D-Bry on being a massive arse. On being a hypocrite. He’s no role model, just a coward. He’d rather hide behind a woman’s skirt than be a man. Also, would like to congratulate D-Bry for hanging out with someone almost as conceited as D-Bry – meaning Miz. Good job. The thing is, when WrestleMania is over, no one will congratulate D-Bry. Hey’ll say he got exactly what he deserved.

Miz says Sheamus deserves to be taken down a notch or two. How dare Sheamus come out there and take the thunder of the World Heavyweight Champion? Sheamus asks Miz to do him a favor, let the lad who actually has a match at WrestleMania talk, eh? Sheamus turns back to D-Bry who bitch slaps Sheamus. D-Bry flees and Miz attacks. Sheamus takes Miz out and sends him over the top. Sheamus looks up to see D-Bry on the stage holding AJ’s hand. AJ looks scared.

But he’s a changed man. D-Bry knows how to win. Tonight Punk teaches D-Bry how to lose.

Laurinaitis on his feet clapping for D-Bry, even though he saw D-Bry cheating, right in front of him. Of course this means Long comes out and is unhappy about things. He says it’s not going to end like that. He and everyone in the arena saw what happened. Cole asked, “What happened?” Long says we all saw D-Bry use the ropes and it’s not going to end like that. Start the match right now. Long and Laurinaitis get into it verbally ringside. Long tells the ref that this is his show, so start the match again.

The ref is confused, the GMs are arguing again as the fans chant for Punk. Laurinaitis into the ring and raises D-Bry’s hand. Long in and raises Punk’s hand.

    I hope Teddy Long gets the job over Johnny Ace… Long deserves it!

  • Swanson

    Finaly would just fall back if I remember right I don’t think his was a slam

    • PC

      You're right. He get the opponent in the same position as Sheamus run a little a fall straight back. Essentially its the same move but Sheamus does a variation of it. Shelley from the MAchine guns does the same move sometimes and I've seen James Storm do it to.

    That new Sheamus finisher…is it the one that Finlay used before?

    All teddy long

  • Joey

    they are definitely building something for WrestleMania between Teddy Long and John Laurinaitis…maybe some sort of Tag Team Match or something with Long picking someone or a team to represent him and Laurinaitis picks someone or a team to represent him…should be an interesting storyline going forward…

    WrestleMania 28 is going to be amazing!!!

  • @jblack424

    Cm punk and d bry killed it. Drew got squashed really bad by a guy who got squashed sunday. Idk what is going on with drew. Also excited for gm wm match but johnny ace looked stronger after sd. Also I don’t like miz lowering himself to bryan. I’m fine if miz takes them as equals but if he is gonna do alex riley to him last year that is bad. I expect him to be punished a lil for truth thing but man d-brys henchman is a joke.

    • H.M.

      He asked for a potential formation of a tag team…not to be his goon. It's clear he was just trying to make himself relevant storyline wise.

  • Clint

    Boo that man, starting something with Laurinaitis and then running away, also why did people boo Laurinaitis for restarting the match I was like Yes Yes Yes, more of these two is great, then they cheer teddy for running away, I again say Boo this Man

    • BigMike

      u must beone of the jackoff marks who always chant for the heels no matter how awful they are u prob even enjoy Otunga in the ring and he cant even wrestle Mark u prob even like Cole who needs to stop swallowing Vince's load every other day to keep his job(( Johnny Ace swallows it on the days in between)) ur such a mark its pathetic …now I like a great match and they have always been capable of putting on a great match just the BS with Ace and Long is stooooopid

      • Clint

        and you must be one of those guys that actually think your opinion matters to me, so go off to your corner and fester about how the world seems to think you matter, also you must be one of those guys that think hormswoggle is entertaining, see I can say random crap too, that doesnt apply to what I said

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003405738137 Little

        logical picks. actually like a lot of them. here’s my daltieed take there are some rumors flying around Brock Lesnar might make a return to challenge Undertaker in Mania. if that happens, that’ll be logical to think he can realistically end his streak, since Brock has had his number in the past and he was an actual MMA fighter who can strike with Taker (who they try to bill as a pure striker ). other than the rock being involved, i’m thinking there’s got to be some other celebrity involvement in there as well. maybe the situation from jersey shore will finally accept ryder’s challenge from one of his early ZTLIS eps (either in a singles match, title or non-title, or some kind of mixed tag match with Eve?). your idea for punk vs barrett for the wwe belt is nice, as the storyline potential could be good. for the world title, i would like to see jericho vs bryan (as it’s still not clear what brand jericho is in, as he left the wwe as a smackdown superstar). hoping bryan would still have it, as it looks like they’re still doing a slow build with him. if bryan doesn’t have the belt, i think they might finally have him do a program with michael cole, with cole costing him the belt in between now and mania, and they can play up his undefeated WM streak. lastly, they should bring back the multibrand mitb match for mania, so it’ll give all the other uppermidcarders, like sheamus, mark henry, ziggler, kofi, etc, who aren’t booked something to do.

    Ace vs Long at Wrestlemania with the winner getting full control and the other having to be an assistant or leave for good.

    whats with big zeke losing to otunga twice in a row…i mean someone correct me if im wrong but during the corre angle a while back wasnt wwe making him pretty much the enforcer type by having him suplex the big show and putting the great khali in the torture rack….whats the deal with that???

    "My name is Mr. John Laurinaitis, Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and the Interim General Manager of RAW"

    LOL. This line is so annoying, it makes me want to slap Laryngitis's face. XD

      If WWE is smart they add Ryder in last minute. Have this open the show, the MSG crowd will no doubt be ctnnhiag We Want Ryder . My off the wall prediction: Zack Ryder wins the US Title.DIvas no reason to take the belt off Beth, yet. She wins. Team Barrett wins, Dolph Ziggler is the sole survivor, and thus begins his treck to Main Event-dom.Mark Henry beats the Big Show. Figure the feud with a returning Kane will be next, or do they let the seedlings grow for Daniel Bryan/Henry grow into something for a PPV.Punk dethrones ADR. Its that time. ADR’s reign has been decent which is better then most 1st runs with the big belt. Awesome Truth win. Its the ony thing that makes sense. Cena/Rock can’t and SHOULDN’T get along. It should cost them the match. This should be about building more heat for their Mania Match, and about seeing how much rust Rocky has inside the ring. Should be awesome, because of the crowd and 4 guys involved.

  • Mike

    Where can I order myself an AJ from? I've been scouring the internets to try and find one, but there only seems to have been the one ever made. I swear, cloning companies could make a fortune.

  • sdd619

    This Daniel Bryan v CM Punk match was better than the one on raw a few weeks ago. I now want to see Punk v Bryan for Wrestlemania. Imagine the classic they would of had there. i'm giving that match 4 out of 5 stars as i did like the finish of this match as i want the fued to continue, but with outside interference killed it abit

  • Terra Ryzing

    Why is otunga winning matches?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003405726999 Franco

    i dont wanna sound like a troll, or be too pushy, but next time u make a video can u stop the music when the superstars enter so we can hear the crowd riectaon?
