Event summary Edit
Brie Bella vs Kelly Kelly Edit
Tens of thousands of devout followers the world over were anticipating the arrival of an apocalyptic doomsday that never arrived. No, not the Rapture. We’re talking about Kharma, the braided behemoth, whose obsession with Kelly Kelly has reached ominous levels.
During the Divas Title Match, pitting the blond beauty against current champion Brie Bella, Kharma cast a long shadow. When it became obvious that the braided behemoth would not make her presence felt, though, Brie and her twin sister, Nikki, breathed a sigh of relief.
The twins then proceeded with the underhanded tactics they’ve grown so accustomed to as of late. Just when the momentum had begun to flow to Kelly’s side, the Bellas executed Twin Magic, Nikki pulling her sister from the ring and jumping in herself. The fresh Diva quickly disposed of the blond contender and allowed her sister, Brie, to retain the butterfly emblazoned title.
In the wake of the loss, Kelly appeared devastated. Was her distress the result of her title loss, though, or are Kharma’s head games finally sinking in?
Jerry Lawler vs Michael Cole Edit
It’s one thing to feel the sting of downfall. It’s quite another to actually taste the agony of “de-feet.”
Michael Cole went toe-to-toe against his rival, Jerry “The King” Lawler, in a Kiss My Foot Match and ended up tasting Lawler’s tootsies. Not only that, the shameful smooch came in large part thanks to Bret “Hit Man” Hart, Eve and Good Ol’ J.R.
Prior to the night’s bout, Cole had spent weeks dissing the Divas as well as legendary announcer Jim Ross. Well, he would pay for his insults. As Lawler prepared to force Cole to kiss his foot, he stopped short a couple of times. First, to allow Eve to exact revenge on behalf of the Divas roster, and secondly, to let his buddy Good Ol’ J.R. enter the ring and pour barbecue sauce all over Cole’s face.
King had became so incensed at having technically “lost” his first two bouts against Cole, in fact, that he promised his rival he would give him his beloved WWE Hall of Fame ring and would personally induct him into the Hall should that day arrive.
The thought, perhaps, was too much for Lawler’s fellow WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart. The Excellence of Execution, who had defeated Lawler in a Kiss My Foot Match 15 years earlier at 1995’s King of the Ring pay-per-view, intervened when Cole attempted to flee up the entrance ramp. As a result, the weasely announcer would be puckering up after all and smooching King’s foot.
For Cole, the match proved a humiliating affair he’d certainly rather forget. A grinning Lawler, on the other hand, seemed to want nothing more than to savor the win, the sweetest and tangiest of victories.
