WWE Super SmackDown Live Results, Analysis and Review for Nov, 6 2012
That is right, folks. You did not read the headline wrong. Tonight is a special, live Tuesday edition of SmackDown, and this is the Bleacher Report's live coverage for the event.
It will be interesting to see how tonight's crowd compares to the outstanding one that showed up for Raw in Birmingham, England.
SmackDown will likely deal with two major storylines: The World title feud between Sheamus and Big Show and the angle involving Eve and the other divas.
Sheamus and Big Show are building to their rematch at Survivor Series, so rest assured that one of them will be there to talk about it.
Booker T had Natalya come in and ask to fill in for Eve last week while she was away. That could lead to the evil diva thinking Natalya was trying to steal her job.
With the way Raw ended last night, it will be very intriguing to see if John Cena or Ryback show up on SmackDown at all.
Since this is a "Super" SmackDown, we could get to see a lot of the top talent that usually only appears on Raw.

The end of the main event was a cool way for Orton to win what ended up being a great falls count anywhere match.
Overall the show was above average, but nothing less should be expected from a show in England where WWE does there best to impress the people who get to see them so few times throughout the year.
Seeing any William Regal match is a treat, but it would have been nice for him to get the win and not take the loss for his team.
The SinSterio/PTP feud might be over after a decisive win from the dancing duo.
WWE's new Fandangoo character only had one "O" in it, but it could have been a mistake. Either way I do not think this gimmick will last long.
What did you guys think of the show?

Randy Orton vs Alberto Del Rio Part 1
How can WWE use the name Fandango when a well-known movie website uses it?
Josh Matthews covers up the fact that Del Rio's driver seat is on the opposite side by saying he owns cars and keeps them all over the world.
I've driven and English car with the steering wheel on the other side once, but it was in the U.S. so it was really weird to be in the same lane but on the other side of the car. It really makes you look a lot closer at how you drive.
The bell rings and Orton goedsright after Del Rio. Del Rio gets Orton in the corner and hits a series of kicks ending with one nasty kick to the face.
Del Rio's kicks always look and sound realistic from the right angle. Orton stops Del Rio from ramming him into a chair set up in the turnbuckle and Del Rio tries to escape through the crowd.

Orton comes out right after the interview for his match.
I have to say I am shocked no one has commented on the Nick Offerman video I put up. It is classic.
Matt Striker talks to Alberto Del Rio about his upcoming match against Orton. Del Rio says he was attacked from behind and that is the only reason he got the better of him.
Rosa walks up and wishes Del Rio luck. It looks like they will have some kind of storyline going forward with Del Rio and Rosa.

Barrett distracts Sheamus just long enough to let Big Show hit a spear to Sheamus. Regal hits a running knee to the face of Show and Show turns around and hits the WMD for the pin and the win.
Winners: Big Show and Wade Barrett
I am a little surprised that Regal and Sheamus did not get the win given that they are in England.
That was a decent match, but Regal took too much of a beating and did not get in as much offense as I would have hoped for.

JBL seems to think this proves something about John Cena. Josh Matthews says Vickie tweeted about having new footage.
We go backstage to Teddy Long and Booker talking about the tag team match they will have next. Booker asks if Vickie could have come up with the match and Teddy says she might.
Booker asks if he is not original. Teddy changes his tune and sucks up and Booker calls him on it. Is Booker really asking if making tag team matches every week makes him unoriginal?
Booker says he was just kidding and plays buddy-buddy with Long. That was an awkward segment.
Barrett is out for the tag team match.
SinSterio vs. Prime Time Players
Sin Cara is out first after the break and WWE uses his entrance as an opportunity to plug their Hulu partnership.
They use Rye Mysterio's entrance to plug Erkel's show on SyFy.

Winners: Prime Time Players
Quick match but it had a quick pace and a few entertaining spots.
After the match Matt Striker tries to ask them a question but they grab the mic away from him. Where the hell did Titus get that whistle from? He has on trunks with no pockets.
Never mind. I don't want to know where he kept it.
Titus asks Striker what he thinks of when he sees them and he whispers to Striker to say millions of dollars.
PTP want Striker to dance with them and he messe sit up so they tell him to leave the ring. Striker is growing a Movember moustache and they make fun of it.
I liked that match and I think it will lead to something down the line with the attempt to show respect by Miz. I would not be surprised at all if he mentions that the next time he has a mic in his hands.
This feud has given me a new appreciation for both of these guys. They have not had a bad match in their series of four thus far. Miz is especially showing more versatility than ever before.
Kofi vs. Miz IC title match Part 2
After the break we return to see Miz punishing the leg of Kofi with what amounts to a DDT to his foot.
Jbl claims he used to be able to fly like Kofi when he was young as Miz continues to hit more offense to the knee of Kofi.

The trade shots on the middle rope until Kofi gets the advantage and knocks Miz down. He hits a big Cross body for a pin and a win.
Winner: Kofi Kingston
I love when someone wins wth something that is not their finisher and not a roll up. Having people win after big moves they don't always win with makes things less predictable.
Kofi celebrates after the match with his title as Miz watches him. Miz circles Kofi in the ring before holding out his hand for a shake.
Kofi dropkicks him out of the ring. Dammit! That could have been a face turn or Miz and Kofi cheap-shotted him. JBL agrees with me.
Kofi Kingston vs. Miz for the IC Championship Part 1
Miz and Kofi make their way to the ring for the match. JBL puts Miz over big time before the bell.
They lock up after the bell and Miz locks in a side headlock, which Kofi reverses. After a bit more of this Kofi ends up monkey flipping Miz before sending him over the top rope.
Kofi misses a sliding dropkick and Miz lifts him up onto the barrier while trying to send him over the barricade. Kofi walks the railing and hits Miz.
They get back in the ring and Miz drops Kofi onto the top rope and Kofi grabs his knee right away when he goes down.

After the break we see Booker find Barrett and call him a coward for backing down from a fight.
Booker proposes Sheamus and Regal take on Barrett and Big Show. Wade puts his arms around Booker and says thank you before walking of.
I love JBL's enthusiasm as he hypes the match for later. The IC title match between Miz and Kofi Kingston is up next.
The show opens with another video being narrated like this is Dateline.
Michael Cole is in the ring an he brings out Sheamus to a huge ovation from the crowd. Cole brings up how Big Show attacked William Regal and Sheamus at a pub last night.
They show the attack on a cell phone video, which makes the beating look much more chaotic than it really was.
Sheamus says he understand why Big Show did what he did, but he can't understand why Show would cheap shot Regal.
Sheamus invites Big Show to the ring to finish what he started. Big Show comes on the big screen and calls Sheamus an ungrateful ginger. The crowd laughs a bit.
Show says he held back during the attack just so Sheamus could make it to Survivor Series. That was nice of him.
Sheamus tries to get Show to come out but Wade Barrett comes out instead and he gets a nice welcome from the crowd.
Barrett says Sheamus is stupid for looking for a fight since he is already facing Barrett on Main Event this week. Barrett starts to go to the ring but then he changes his mind and walks away.
The segment ends with Sheamus in the ring posing for the crowd.
From what I understand there is already spoilers for the show since it was taped in a different country from the United States, but for those watching live or who would like more detailed play by play stay tuned. I still plan on covering the event.
