SD: Commercial break

Commercialdown, you know, that show the WWE airs on the Friday before a Pay-Per-View, was briefly interrupted by a show at about 9 p.m. The Manchester, England fans finally roared when Triple H executed a spinebuster on Jeff Hardy. And, then, back to our commercials.

In fact, the “main event” they were promoting all night wasn’t even a match. It was Undertaker giving Big Show his “last rites.” In other words, a promo for their casket match at Survivor Series. Okay, the fans did get excited again when Vicki was choke-carried into the casket, Chavo was tombstoned and Chavo was placed in the casket.

On telling apart the Bella Twins- Tazz thinks Nikki is a quarter-inch taller than Brie. I think Brie is a tad thinner than Nikki. Actually, I think I saw somewhere that one has a tattoo the other doesn’t have. Maybe I need an HDTV with a bigger screen to see it and tell them apart…

In the spirit of the Survivor Series two-hour commercial, I have a couple commercials of my own that you may be interested in:

The WWE is coming to the area next month with three shows in Pennsylvania and two in New Jersey. Trenton’s Sovereign Bank Arena will host a Raw house show on Dec. 27. Tickets range form $21 to $61. According to the arena’s website, the card (subject to change) has two matches so far- Shawn Michaels v. Kane and a Fatal Four Way Match for the World Heavyweight Championship involving John Cena, Chris Jericho, Batista and Randy Orton.

The other shows include Raw in Philly on Dec. 8, Raw in Pittsburgh on Dec. 15 (day after Armageddon), Raw house show in Hershey on Dec. 26 and Smackdown in East Rutherford on Dec. 30. The East Rutherford show is the last time WWE will be on the east coast before Wrestlemania 25.

Next week, I’ll release my top wrestling gifts for you to give your loved ones for whatever gift-giving holiday or holidays you may be needing gifts for next month.
