Smackdown: The Triple H Show

Yes, everybody is as sick of Vicki Guerrero as you are, Triple H. Fortunately, we didn't have to endure her tonight.

The Cerebral Assassin opened the show with “what is called a promo” for Cyber Sunday and his main event match for Smackdown later in the night. The expected happened, including a nose-to-nose stare-down with his SD main event opponent, the Undertaker, once Triple H got backstage.

The main event announcements started with a half hour left in the show. Rumor has it Triple H and Taker aren’t the best of friends in real life, so it made for an interesting match up because of that and not just the two are powerhouses. The match had several recovery lulls, perhaps to better fill the time. However, there were some exciting moments, including a few counters to usually finishing moves.

The bell rang five minutes before the end of the show when Big Show interfered by punching Taker in the gut. Big Show ended up walking out of the ring as both Triple H and Taker lay as his victims in the ring.

After a commercial break, Triple H was still in the ring getting up when Kozlov decided to take advantage and attack.

Just a couple more notes:
It looks like Primo and Carlito will be pairing up with twins soon…
Hurricane Helms, whatever you're calling yourself, you’re annoying. I’m just saying…
