IN THE RING
Montel Vontavious Porter + Mr. Kennedy (on stage): MVP said this was supposed to be the happiest time of the year. MVP said he still has his pride and still has more money than the fans. Mr. Kennedy interrupted the rant and MVP’s microphone went dead. Mr. Kennedy caught his special mic from above and said he wished there was something he could do to help MVP. Mr. Kennedy plugged his straight-to-DVD “Beheind Enemy Lines: Columbia” movie.
RAW HIGHLIGHTS: Coverage of the SLAMMY AWARDS.
VIGNETTE: British wrestler Hade Vansen will soon debut on SmackDown! with a gimmick that is a complete rip off of Christopher Daniels.
Brian Kendrick & The Bella Twins + Carlito & Primo Colon + Ezekiel Jackson: Brian Kendrick approached and started hitting on the Bella Twins and they were disgusted. The Colon brothers came to the Bella’s rescue and Primo said “if you’re feeling froggy, jump!” Kendrick backed off until Ezekiel Jackson showed up and The Kendrick was suddenly brave again!
RAW HIGHLIGHTS: John Morrison & Mike Mizanin winning the Slammy for “2008 Best Tag Team”
THE Brian Kendrick w/Ezekiel Jackson defeated Primo Colon w/Carlito Colon:
NON (UNITED STATES) TITLE MATCH
Hurricane Helms defeated WWE United States champion Shelton Benjamin: After the match, Tazz interviewed Hurricane Helms in the ring. The Hurricane said he felt it was about time for a new United States champion – I’m just sayin’!
IN THE RING (THE CUTTING EDGE)
Edge + Matt Hardy + Vladimir Kozlov: Edge said there was a lot of heat between he and Jeff Hardy. Edge claimed that Triple H attacked Jeff on the morning of Survivor Series. Edge said despite the facts, everyone is pointing their finger at him! Matt Hardy came out and said it was Edge who took out Jeff before Survivor Series. Edge said all he did was step up to the plate and help his wife, Vickie Guerrero, even though he wasn’t 100%. Matt said he knows more than anyone that Edge is the scummiest person on the planet (that is true). Edge told Matt to look at the big picture, and suggested Randy Orton was the one who took out Jeff Hardy. Maybe the Miz and John Morrison, better yet, what about the Undertaker, or the man who had the most to lose, Triple H? Matt said all the facts point to Edge, and said he came out to get the truth. Edge said the truth was the only reason Matt is getting involved in his brothers business is because nobody cares about Matt. Edge said Matt was the ECW champion, but if he was attacked before Survivor Series nobody would care. Edge said people actually care about Jeff Hardy. Matt punched Edge down to the match, but Vladimir Kozlov snuck in from behind. Matt turned his attention to Kozlov, so that Edge knocked Matt down from behind! Kozlov then assaulted Matt Hardy and put him down with a Choke-slam!
RAW HIGHLIGHTS: The Great Khali winning the Slammy for “DAMN! Moment of the Year”
The Great Khali w/Ranjin Singh defeated Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins: It’s hard to believe Hawkins & Ryder are former WWE Tag Team champions. They have been reduced to insignificant jobbers in a very short period of time. The Great Khali finished off his opponents with a Punjabi Plunge. Thankfully we didn’t get a Khali Kiss-cam tonight.
Eve Torres (sexy) & Triple H: Triple H said that Edge isn’t the only one who believes he (HHH) attacked Jeff Hardy before Survivor Series, because Jeff himself believes that he (HHH) attacked him.
Eve Torres (sexy) & Vladimir Kozlov: Vladimir Kozlov said Matt Hardy is not competition and he will destroy him at Armageddon. Kozlov said he will go after the WWE championship from Edge, Jeff Hardy, or Triple H – it doesn’t matter. Kozlov said he lost his tolorance and everyone must fall.
Triple H vs. Jeff Hardy ended in a No Contest: The match was turning out to be a classic until WWE champion Edge hit the ring and attacked both men!
