WWE Saturday Morning Slam 10/27/2012 Review
Last week's show is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2012/10/wwe-saturday-morning-slam-10202012.html
Today the main event is Antonio Cesaro vs Derrick Bateman. No, I'm not joking. Bateman hasn't even been on TV lately so this comes out of nowhere.
Brodus Clay and his dancers came out. They make the dancers wear shirts for this show.
Brodus Clay vs Epico
Clay manhandled Epico and made him dance with him in the opening of this match. He then hit a big exploder and a splash for the quick win in less than 3 minutes. This was just a squash.
Kane came on and showed some of the dark superstars of the past. He showed the Boogeyman who he said suffered from a severe case of worms. He then did Papa Shango. He says he cursed his foes with black magic but in the end he was conumed by darkness and sent to parts unknown. He then talked about the Undertaker and Kane then said he was the most disturbing and powerful monster.
Kaitlyn gave us tips on how to make a halloween costume. She tried to dress up like a penguin but looked more like, well, I have no idea.
We then got favorite costumes of the stars. Truth said Superman, Fox said Pocahontas, Dibiase said a cowboy and Clay said a two person horse costume.
Antonio Cesaro vs Derrick Bateman
As I mentioned earlier, it's been a while since Derrick Bateman has been on TV. I'm thinking atleast a month to be on the safe side, but maybe more. That's really not good when there's atleast 6 first-run WWE shows now. Derrick Bateman came out with a cheap looking USA flag that he was holding backwards. Miz then swung the flag around and yelled USA. They started off with a criss cross with both guys saying their home country name and stopping and then pointing to both sides.
Cesaro hit a Karelin's lift here but only for a two. Cesaro had Derrick's ankle but got flipped over. Derrick got some comeback offense in but no win. Cesaro then busted out the Big Swing for the first time in the WWE! Miz said Bateman's gonna puke then did Vince's old "he's gonna puke" line from Beyond the Mat. Nice reference there. Both men were dizzy until Bateman hit a tope. Bateman then went for the high cross body but missed and got hit with the Gotch-Style Neutralizer for the win.
Overall thoughts: An okay SMS. You know what you are getting here. I didn't have any problems with the two matches shown but they weren't that great. That Kaitlyn segment was stupid though with how bad her costume looked.
