Matthews: “Wow, Matt. I don’t even know what to say. There is so much controversy around here lately, it’s almost unbelievable. We’ve got Gail Kim and Natalya being attacked by someone, and CM Punk now has a spooky admirer. Still to come tonight, we have Kurt Angle, who is trying to prove a point about how to be humble, taking on Daniel Bryan.
And right now, we’ve got Jack Swagger and Ted DiBiase introducing their tag team mentor to us as they get set to take on the Tag Team Champions, Air Boom.”
Striker: “Josh, that’s what makes this so great. We never know what were going to get on a given night here on SmackDown. Anything can happen at any time. This is awesome. I love this job.”
Air Boom comes out to a huge ovation, getting set to accept the challenge placed before them by Swagger and DiBiase one week ago.
Swagger and DiBiase come out to good heat. Swagger, with microphone in hand, begins to address their opponents.
Swagger: “Wow, I’m surprised you two showed up. By the end of the night, you’re going to wish you hadn’t. Now, let me introduce to you the man who is going to lead us to the promised land in the tag team division.
He knows the ins and outs of the division better than anybody else. He has taught us everything we know and now believes in our abilites as a team to take those tag team titles away from you. Ladies and gentleman, allow me to introduce to you, our mentor.......Jimmy Uso!”
Uso comes out to reasonable heat from the crowd. Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne are shown in the ring, having puzzled looks on their face. Swagger, DiBiase and Uso make their way into the ring and the match begins.
DiBiase and Bourne begin the match with DiBiase getting the early advantage. Bourne goes down to the ground, allowing for Million Dollar Man’s son to control the tempo. DiBiase starts to tweak Bourne’s leg, looking to take away his high flying ability.
Eventually, DiBiase makes the tag to Swagger, both men working the ankle of Bourne before the tag is made. As Swagger enters the ring, he immediately sets up for Swagger Bomb, hitting it with perfection, only getting a two-count in the process.
Swagger and DiBiase begin to isolate Bourne away from Kingston, keeping them from tagging in. Double team action continues in the corner, dominating Bourne. Jimmy Uso is shown outside of the ring, remaining unfazed by what’s going on in the ring, almost zoning out.
After a few minutes, Swagger is in total control of Bourne, even keeping Evan from getting a single offensive move in. Swagger irish whips Bourne towards the ropes, inadvertently knocking DiBiase off of the apron. Swagger doesn’t even flinch as he continues to attack Bourne inside the ring.
The camera pans over to Kingston, looking frustrated at the goings ons inside the ring while he’s forced to watch. Before Kofi realizes it, he’s being ripped off of the apron by DiBiase and attacked on the outside. The referee doesn’t realize what’s going on as Swagger applies the ankle lock to Bourne.
Bourne, in searing pain, looks to crawl towards his tag partner to attempt a tag, but finds that his corner is empty. DiBiase continues to work on Kingston on the outside of the ring. He even goes as far as to throw Kingston under the ring, making him invisible to the the official.
DiBiase returns to his corner before the ref can realize what happen. Swagger still has the ankle lock applied on Bourne, finally forcing him to tap out.
Tony Chimel: “Here are your winners, Jack Swagger and Ted DiBiase.”
Jimmy Uso enters the rings, applauding his two mentees on a job well done.
