Smackdown Taping for 1/09/09

HHH kicked off the show in his first of three matches for the night.

HHH d. John Morrison in a tables match, interesting note: the ending of this match was botched as HHH threw Morrison of the top rope onto a table on the outside, but the table did not break. They, however, did it again and got it right the second time.

Undertaker d. Shelton Benjamin, crowd was heavily behind Undertaker who at the end was limping significantly on his left leg, however this is probably a work

Bella Twins d. McCool & Victoria, McCool was booed during this match, afterwards McCool beat down on Victoria

HHH d. Chavo & The Miz, Chavo left the Miz alone and allowed HHH to pick up the win

MVP’s VIP lounge with Ken Kennedy, Kennedy plugged his dvd by saying it was available now, however there were chants in the crowd saying, “It’s not out yet” which will probably be edited out

Carlito & Primo b. Ezekiel & Kendrick to retain the WWE tag titles, once again the crowd was chanting for the Brian Kendrick

Big Show d. HHH in a Last Man Standing Match to end the show, crowd was behind HHH the entire match

Overall the Crowd was lively, but not as lively as it would be for a raw or PPV would be in the IZOD Center. The reason being there were many more kids in attendance than there normally would be at a Raw or PPV.
