SD: Happy Halloween

Druids, caskets and costumes, oh my! There’s nothing like the WWE on holidays.

The casket match returned Friday night, and Undertaker’s opponent was the very nervous Chavo Guerrero. Even the druids carrying the casket down to ringside put fear in Chavo’s eyes.

As Taker entered the ring, JR suggested “Chavo notify his next of kin, but that would be somewhat redundant considering his own aunt put him in this environment,”

Chavo gained some confidence when he saw Big Show come out to watch from the ramp. Big Show did eventually assist Chavo (there’s no DQ in casket matches, so it was all legal), but got spooked when landing on the casket, and retreated back up the ramp to watch the remainder of the match. Needless to say, Taker rolled Chavo’s carcass into the casket after executing a tombstone.

Also needless to say, Kozlov still wants his title match. Well, he may get it. During a confrontation, Triple H told Kozlov to request the match from Vicki Guerrero. After Vicki saw Taker slam the lid on the casket, she informed Kozlov he would face the Undertaker next week, and if he wins, he gets his title shot at Survivor Series.

By the way, JR was sailor with an "OU" embroidered on his hat and GI Tazz sar beside him at the announcers table.
