Smackdown Results 10/01/10 - SyFy Debut

Smackdown Results from Oklahoma City, OK:

Friday Night Smackdown made its official debut on SyFy network tonight. Michael Cole was on camera to introduce Smackdown, just before IC Champ Dolph Ziggler came to the ring with Vickie Guerrero. MVP arrived out next for the Intercontinental Championship match to kickoff the first Smackdown on SyFy. Grisham sent it to the intro video for Smackdown which featured new theme music "Know Your Enemy" by Green Day.

MVP vs. Dolph Ziggler

With the match well underway, MVP took it to Ziggler and had a near fall. Moments later he was able to toss Ziggler over him to the outside of the ring. Down at the bottom of the ramp, The Nexus stormed down the ramp to attack Ziggler. Next they all surrounded the ring with MVP still inside. MVP yelled "who's first" preparing for battle. The Nexus was too much for him as Otunga, Tarver, Slater and Gabriel all gave him a beatdown. Wade Barrett wasn't present.

Winner: No contest due to Nexus interfering in the match.

Otunga hit his finisher on MVP, then Gabriel went next, climbing up the corner and hitting the 450 Splash. They four Nexus guys looked down at MVP on the mat, but just then Big Show decided to come out.

Show walked down the ramp staring at Nexus, then got on the apron. He was able to shove them away as they attacked. Unfortunately, Slater jumped on Show's back and they were able to drive him down to the mat for a beating. Nexus continued to pound away on Show, kicking him out under the bottom rope. Just then, John Cena's theme music hit. Cena rushed out and down the ramp. He got in the ring and atackled down one Nexus member, but soon the rest pounced on him. Before they knew it though, Big Show got back in the ring with a steel chair and bashed it on Slater's back. The Nexus soon escaped the ring, backing up the ramp.

Just then, Wade Barrett appeared on the big screen to address the fans and Cena. He reminded everyone if he wins at Hell in a Cell on Sunday, then John Cena must join Nexus. Barrett turned to Teddy Long who was staying next to him, saying tonight will be huge. Long looked uncomfortable. Wade said he knows the head of SyFy who has allowed him to create some matches. He turned to ask Long to announce the matches. Big Show will compete in a 5-on-1 handicap match against The Nexus, while John Cena will face World Champion Kane.

When Smackdown returned, Michael Cole had joined Matt Striker and Todd Grisham on commentary. Grisham said tonight CM Punk will face The Undertaker one-on-one as well, 48hrs before Hell in a Cell.

Natalya had a Sharpshooter on Maryse early on, but Michelle came in to break it up. The Bella Twins arrived in to take out Layla and Michelle. The Bella Twins got involved as well. Layla went over to help Michelle and do a "Flawless" pose, but suddenly a hand reached out from under the ring to trip Layla and pull her under the ring. It was Hornswoggle who emerged to chase Layla around the ring. As they came around the ring, McCool was there to boot kick Horney down.

A Homecoming ceremony was held for Jack Swagger since the show was in Oklahoma City. Swagger came out wearing a red king's cape, with an Eagle mascot accompanying him to the ring. Swagger said he's got a problem with Oklahoma since they haven't given him a key to the city. He said he and his personal mascot, the Swagger soaring Eagle have now moved out of Oklahoma. He said they moved somewhere classier, Texas. He told the crowd to repeat after him "God Bless Texas." He upset the crowd saying Texas will beat Oklahoma tomorrow. Swagger proclaimed himself official, undisputed king of Oklahoma, then put a special crown on. The Eagle started praising Swagger down on his knees. Swagger told all the Sooners to worship him. Just then, Edge's theme music hit, bringing the Rated-R Superstar out.

Edge said he's on a mission of epic proportions, to rid the WWE landscape of "anything that is stupid." Edge called the Soaring Eagle stupid, as well as Swagger's cape and crown. Edge said he was going to start his mission right now. He dropped the mic, but Swagger hid behind the Eagle mascot. After several moments, Edge punched the Eagle down. Swagger escaped out of the ring but was furious, yelling at Edge about the Eagle. With Swagger watching, Edge prepared from the corner and eventually hit the Spear to take the bird down.

Later tonight Cena vs Kane with Nexus as Lumberjacks. Backstage, Barrett spoke to his group saying they need to push the envelope to really make history tonight. He said it's known if anyone on Smackdown lays a finger on them tonight, they're suspended. He said later in Cena's match against Kane they can make something truly memorable on Smackdown. He huddled them up to talk strategy.

Smackdown returned with some Dashing Cody Rhodes Grooming Tips. Today's tips were about underarm perspiration and wet spots through shirts.

Big Show vs. The Nexus
5-on-1 Handicap Match

Barrett lead his other four Nexus teammates to the ring for the match. The commentators reviewed Nexus' earlier attack on Ziggler, MVP, and Big Show setting up this match.

In this contest, all of the Nexus were allowed in the ring at once. They attacked Show in the corner, ganging up on him, but he kept shoving them away. Show managed to stay on his feet, but soon Nexus had him down on the mat to kick and punch away on him. Each of the Nexus members grabbed a limb to stretch out Show on the mat. Barrett wrapped his legs around Show's neck to choke him out. Eventually the ref called for the bell as Big Show passed out and couldn't continue. Nexus all admired their work, and then Justin Gabriel climbed to the top corner and hit the 450 Splash on Show. Moments later, Gabriel hit the 450 Splash again on Show before Nexus posed in the ring.
