WWE Saturday Morning Slam results
October 6, 2012
Aired on CW - Episode #7
Report by James Caldwell, PWTorch assistant editor
This week's show started with an arena shot and Josh Mathews introducing the show. Rey Mysterio's music then played to bring out Rey for singles action. Mathews and his co-host this week, Santino, talked up Rey's career and connection with the crowd as he made his way to the ring. Michael McGillicutty's music then played and the mood changed via post-production. Mathews and Santino talked up Mike's intensity as he smugly made his way to the ring. Santino summed it up as Mike being a j-e-r-k.
1 - REY MYSTERIO vs. MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY
After backing up Rey to the corner, Mike playfully tapped Rey on the head before getting down on both knees to "get down to Rey's level." Mike then bodyslammed Rey and posed to taunt the crowd. Mike and Rey then ran the ropes, but Rey stopped and Mike kept running, unaware that Rey had stopped. Mike, upset, tried throwing Rey to the outside, but Rey demonstrated proper jumping jacks on the outside. Rey then scampered back into the ring to perform more jumping jacks, upsetting Mike. Rey in control, kind of, going to break.
[Commercial Break. Before returning from break, Dolph Ziggler offered this week's Don't Try This At Home message.]
Back to the action, the crowd was chanting, "619," to rally behind Rey, but Mike kept Rey on the mat to retain control of the action. Mike then held Rey in the air and taunted the crowd before delivering a Saturday Morning Sidewalk Slam into a backbreaker. Mike followed with a standing bearhug to continue working on Rey's back. Rey escaped, then landed a dropkick to the chest to mount a comeback.
Mike made a desperate dive at Rey, but Rey moved and Mike ate the second rope. Mike blocked the 619, though, so Rey reset with another 619, this time to Mike's rear-end. "An unorthodox 619," Mathews described it as Santino chuckled. Rey then dropped the dime on Mike for the pin and the win. Post-match: After a replay of the action, Rey was shown celebrating in the ring by raising the roof.
WINNER: Rey at 10:20.
Up Next: Daniel Bryan shouts "Yes!" and "No!" and Santino's Cobra is spotlighted.
Sat. Morning Spotlight: Santino's Cobra vs. Mick Foley's Socko. They focused on the Cobra suddenly developing a life of its own.
D-Bryan Spotlight: "Yes!" and "No!" In a backstage pre-tape set to music, Bryan was asked random questions, which of course prompted Bryan to become more and more agitated. "Video games are for idiots," Bryan shouted. Bryan then calmed down and said he loves ice cream. Asked if he wants a tag partner, the answer was, "No." Asked if he likes goats, the answer was, "No. No! No!!!" Bryan freaked out and started walking down the hallway, effectively ending the skit.
Back from break, Mick Foley talked on-camera in what appeared to be the TV production truck. Foley sent the show to the Video Vault for a look at when Mr. Socko was introduced on WWE television. They showed Foley "entertaining" Mr. McMahon in his hospital bed during the Attitude Era. The voice-over announcer talked up Socko before noting the Cobra has established its presence in today's WWE.
Third Degree: Which is better - Socko or Cobra? Miz said Socko, Truth danced around the question, Alicia Fox said Cobra, Ziggler booked a complicated finish, Foley mocked the question, Santino defended the Cobra, and Foley said there is no argument because Socko was the better of "the two ridiculous gimmick."
Next Week: A celebration of music. They're going to focus on Jim Johnston (not to be confused with Orioles closer Jim Johnson) and how he puts together WWE music.
The show concluded with Santino backstage. He said they will agree to disagree on the Socko vs. Cobra debate. Santino proceeded to knock Socko before smiling and wishing everyone a happy Saturday. The wrap-up music then played over rapid-fire WWE highlights. Clips of Kofi Kingston, C.M. Punk, and John Cena running to the ring were the final images of the show.
