WWE Smackdown/Velocity tapings
February 21, 2006
Report by John Brown, PWTorch.com correspondent
Just getting back from the Show in Richmond and it was off the charts amazing.
(1) Paul Burchill defeated Orlando Jordan with some type of backflip STO slam. These two work surprisingly well here and it was rather good.
(1) Simon Dean & Gymini defeated Paul London & Brian Kendrick & Funaki. All-out bumpfest and back and forth wrestlerama. Watch the crazy bump London takes here.
(2) Mascarita Sagrada defeated Tzuki. Comedy was kept to a bare minimum and the match was as solid as it could get on solid ground.
(3) Sylvan defeated Matt Sydal with his Suplex to DDT finisher. This Matt guy seems pretty terrible to me but Sylvan was on point.
(4) Super Crazy defeats Vito with a modified moonsault from the top rope. These two gel well together.
Randy Orton promo taking shots at Eddie's family and subtle shots at TNA and then Chavo attacks him with the Three Amigos and a frog splash until he gets thrown out the arena.
(1) MNM defeat Tatanka & Matt Hardy.
Hilarious segment starring the new babyface on Smackdown Paul Burchill and William Regal.
(2) Boogeyman defeats The Dicks. Probably his best match to date and he busted out his OVW stomping gimmick in this one. Booker T came out for commentary during this one and got worms for his troubles.
Rey cries and dedicates his apology to Eddie Guerrero before Teddy Long feels sorry for him and puts him in the main event making it a three-way.
Kristal segment gets interrupted by Jillian and bikinis are shown
(3) Gregory Helms defeats Psicosis with a Flash Magic from the great Kenji Muton.
(4) Rey Mysterio & Chris Benoit& Bobby Lashley defeated JBL & Finlay & Randy Orton. Smackdown match of the week here and the work in here is comparable to the two way from Unbreakable.
QUICK TIPS FOR SENDING RESULTS
If you attend an arena event in future, either house shows or TV tapings, we encourage you to send us a report for publication. You can direct your reports to "matchresults" (@pwtorch. com) .
We accept reports in any format, but if it's not much trouble, please format your report like you see above, with the matches numbered like this (1) , (2) , (3) , with the opening line of each match paragraph stating who beat whom (don't just say Wrestler A vs. Wrestler beat with the result listed later; instead, state up front who won so those readers who don't have time to read the entire report (i. e. their boss walks past their cubicle all the time looking beat their shoulder) can at least quickly assess the results.
Also, please list tag teams using the "&" symbol as opposed to stating "and. " Reserve use of "and" when listing results in a threevway or fourvway match where there are no teams (i. e. "Wrestler A beat Wrestler B and Wrestler C in a threevway match") so it is easy to differentiate a handicap match from a threevway match.
If you know HTML coding for bolding, you can also bold out the first line of each match description. If you don't know HTML symbols, then we can add those ourselves.
Special thanks to everyone who helps us with reports on live events!
