Insult and Injury
JBL has admitted to feeling quite comfortable in a No Holds Barred Match. Thursday night on SmackDown! the former WWE Champion proved it.
JBL interfered in Batista's match with Christian in the main event, eventually sending the World Heavyweight Champion down for the count with three chair shots to the back and one to the head. Of course, steel chairs will be perfectly legal when the two Superstars meet at SummerSlam Aug. 21 in their No Holds Barred Match.
Meanwhile, Chapter Three of Eddie Guerrero's bedtime story was more bad news for Rey Mysterio.
Guerrero came to the ring with a social worker and told the audience his biological son Dominick needs to come home with him. Dominick was then escorted to the ring by Rey Mysterio and Mysterio's wife Angela.
Despite Dominick clutching on to his mother, Eddie asked the social worker to go ahead and hand Dominick over to him, per his court papers.
Mysterio noted that while Eddie has beaten a drug habit and a checkered past, he never has beaten Mysterio and he never will. Mysterio's taunting eventually got to Guerrero.
A desperate Mysterio then proposed a huge match at SummerSlam with the winner getting final custody of Dominick. Guerrero accepted, but in the meantime, Dominick would go home without Rey or Eddie.
In fact, Dominick left the ring with the social worker, who decided it was in the boy's best interest to be placed in foster care until Eddie and Rey could settle their differences Aug. 21.
Also, Booker T defeated Joey Mercury with a devastating scissors kick. MNM fixer Jillian was ejected form ringside during the match as she continues to try and improve the image of the former WWE Tag Team Champions.
Jillian then issued a challenge for a mixed tag team match between Joey Mercury & Melina vs. Booker T & Sharmell that was ultimately accepted and scheduled for next week.
Randy Orton, who had been out of action for four months, was looking for an opponent Thursday as he prepares for his match with Undertaker at SummerSlam.
General Manager Theodore Long arranged a mystery opponent, who turned out to be none other than Kamala, who once had a Casket Match with Undertaker at Survivor Series 1992.
Orton eventually hit Kamala with an RKO, but before he could pin the legend, the lights went out and giant RIP signs flashed in the arena, clearly spooking Orton.
WWE Tag Team Champions Heidenreich & Road Warrior Animal remained undefeated with a win over Scotty Sabre & Jason Static as Heidenreich connected with a Doomsday Device.
The Mexicools defeated Williams Regal & Scotty 2 Hotty when Regal refused to let Scotty tag him in. Instead, Regal left ringside and walked to the back, leaving Scotty to be easily finished off. In more singles action, Chris Benoit defeated Simon Dean.
