WWE Week In Review XXVIII
November 9, 2008- November 15, 2008

Welcome to the twenty-eighth edition of the WWE Week In Review. Feel free to contact me on TWO or Wrestling 101 anytime with comments, questions, and anything in between. Also, check out my blog on Wrestling101.com.

WWE.com announced on Monday that World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of SmackDown’s Kenny Dykstra (Real Name: Ken Doane), ECW’s Lena Yada, & ECW’s Elijah Burke.

The 807’th edition of WWE RAW came to you from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Confirmed for RAW’s night in the UK was Santino Marella defending his Intercontinental Title against England’s own William Regal.

Monday Night RAW
Good Week For: Chris Jericho (Defeated Long Time Nemesis Shawn Michaels In A Last Man Standing Match)
Bad Week For: Santino Marella (Lost His Intercontinental Title & Put His Relationship On The Rocks)
It Will Be Interesting Next Week For: Randy Orton & CM Punk (To See Who Comes Out A Winner In Their Match)
Best Mic Work: Santino Marella

And In Other News…
-At the beginning of the show, Stephanie McMahon appeared live via satellite and informed Batista that he would not be receiving his rematch for the World Title until after Survivor Series. She then announced two huge matches for RAW- a No DQ Match between Kane and Rey Mysterio and World Champion Chris Jericho facing Shawn Michaels in a Last Man Standing Match.
-After this announcement, Randy Orton came out to confront "The Animal". The two former teammates agreed on a match on RAW against each other.
-In an Intercontinental Championship Match that can be described as a shocker, William Regal soundly defeated Santino Marella to win his second Intercontinental Title. After the match, Regal thanked the fans in England and promised to do the country proud.
-In his RAW debut, Mike Knox defeated D-Lo Brown.
-In a No Disqualification Match, Rey Mysterio was able to defeat Kane for the second time in a row in their feud.
-As both Batista & Randy Orton were getting set to face off, Cody Rhodes & Manu (without Ted DiBiase, who suffered a severe concussion last week at the hands of Randy Orton) interrupted and Rhodes told Orton that Orton could not beat Batista, but that he could. Rhodes then stepped in to face "The Animal" instead of Orton. The former tag team champion held his own, but in the end, Batista was able to pin Cody Rhodes. After the match, Batista backed Orton up the ramp to the backstage area.
-In a match that Santino Marella accidentally got his girlfriend in by bad-mouthing Shane McMahon, Beth Phoenix used a big assist from Marella to retain her Women’s Title against Mickie James.
-The main event of the evening saw World Champion Chris Jericho defeat Shawn Michaels in a Last Man Standing Match with a huge help from a chair-wielding JBL.
-It was announced during RAW that on next week’s show, Randy Orton will face CM Punk one-on-one.
-Also, after RAW went off the air, it was announced on WWE.com that at Survivor Series, Shawn Michaels will team up with Rey Mysterio, The Great Khali, & Cryme Tyme to take on the team of JBL, Kane, MVP, The Miz, & John Morrison in a Traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination Match.

 The 127’th edition of ECW on Sci-Fi emanated from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Confirmed for the night was an ECW Championship Match that would see champion Matt Hardy defend against the #1 Contender Finlay.

ECW
Good Week For: Matt Hardy (Retained His ECW Title In A Hard-Fought Match)
Bad Week For: Hornswoggle (Proved To Do More Harm Than Good For His Father)
It Will Be Interesting Next Week For: Matt Hardy (To See Who His Next Challenger Will Be)
Best Mic Work: Matt Striker

And In Other News…
-In 6-Man Tag Action, the team of Jack Swagger, The Miz, & John Morrison defeated the team of Tommy Dreamer & RAW’s Cryme Tyme.
-Mark Henry defeated local talent Oliver Biney.
-In the main event, Matt Hardy was able to defeat Finlay to retain his ECW Title.

The 483’rd edition of WWE SmackDown came to you from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Two matches were confirmed for the show- Jeff Hardy would face The Undertaker in the main event under Extreme Rules. Also, Michelle McCool would defend her Divas Title against #1 Contender Maria.

Friday Night SmackDown
Good Week For: Jeff Hardy (Scored Big Win Over The Undertaker & May Get Included In WWE Title Match)
Bad Week For: MVP (Got Laid Out by The Great Khali & Was "Attacked" by a Rabid Female Fan)
It’ll Be Interesting Next Week For: Jeff Hardy (To See If He Can Beat Triple H To Get A WWE Title Shot)
Best Mic Work: Jeff Hardy

And In Other News…
-The opening contest was a special ECW Champion Vs. United States Champion affair that saw ECW Champion Matt Hardy narrowly score a win over SmackDown’s United States Champion Shelton Benjamin.
-With some help from his "advisor" Ezekiel Jackson, The Brian Kendrick was able to defeat one-half of the WWE Tag Team Champions- Carlito.
-Jeff Hardy made a special appearance during a contract signing for the WWE Title Match at Survivor Series between champion Triple H and challenger Vladimir Kozlov. The Extreme Enigma made quite the statement by putting Kozlov through a table and then ripping up the contract and throwing it in the face of the champion.
-With a big assist from The Great Khali, Kung Fu Naki was able to defeat MVP.
-In a match for the Divas Title, Michelle McCool retained her belt over Maria.
-In the main event of the evening, Jeff Hardy was able to score an upset win (with some inadvertant help from Big Show) over The Undertaker in Extreme Rules.
-Vickie Guerrero announced that on next week’s SmackDown, Jeff Hardy will face Triple H in a non-title match and if Jeff wins, he will be added to the WWE Title Match at Survivor Series.


Superstars of the Week: Matt Hardy & Jeff Hardy
