Saturday Morning Slam 10/6/12
Josh Matthews & Santino Marella are our color commentators on this fine Saturday morning and we kick things off with some in ring action.
– Rey Mysterio vs. Michael McGillicutty
Before the match began, McGillicutty made fun of Mysterio’s height as he was walking to the ring. The match opens with McGillicutty backing Rey into the corner and drops to his knees and puts his dukes while making fun of Rey’s height some more. McGillicutty drills Rey with a shoulder tackle and flexes his biceps while yelling “He’s just a little guy.”
McGillicutty drills him with another shoulder tackle and bounces off the ropes while Rey ducks down. Rey gets up and moves out of the way while McGillicutty keeps bouncing off the ropes while Rey watches. A few more seconds go by and McGillicutty finally realizes he has been embarrassed. McGillicutty pushes Rey, Rey leg kicks McGillicutty, McGillicutty knees Rey in the stomach and throws him out of the ring. Rey rolls through it, lands on his feet and does some jumping jacks. McGillicutty goes outside the ring but Rey out runs him and hits a seated senton from the apron and we go to commercial.
-We are treated to a “Please don’t try this at home” PSA from Dolph Ziggler
Back form the commercial break and McGillicutty is down in the corner while Rey has the crowd chanting “6-1-9.” Rey whips McGillicutty into the opposite corner and charges in but McGillicutty moves out of the way causing Rey to hit his head on the turnbuckle. McGillicutty takes control and outs the boots to him and applies a reverse bear hug to Rey. Rey fights up but McGillicutty cuts him off with a back breaker. McGillicutty picks up Rey and yells “What do you think of your little man now?” and nails him with another backbreaker.
McGillicutty applies a regular bear hug but Rey is able to fight out of it and hits McGillicutty with a seated senton from the top rope. Rey follows it up with a head scissors takeover and climbs to the rope but McGillicutty cuts him off and Rey winds up sitting on McGillicutty’s shoulders. Rey’s twists his body and attempts a sunset pin but McGillicutty kicks out and tries his own pin attempt for a two count.
McGillicutty charges at Rey but is caught with a drop toe hold into the second rope. Rey attempts the 6-1-9 but McGillicutty gets up and lands a back kick to Rey’s stomach. McGillicutty tries to take a breather but Rey leg kicks him and McGillicutty flips up over and take the bump just like his father used to do. McGillicutty gets tangled up and seated on the second rope and Rey hits the 6-1-9 to the rear end of McGillicutty and drops the dime for the three count.
Winner: Rey Mysterio

-The 3rd Degree: Who would win Mr. Socko vs. The Cobra
The Miz: Mr. Socko
Alicia Fox: Cobra because the venom is pretty strong.
Dolph Ziggler: Mr. Socko because the cobra would bit him and realizes how bad he taste.
R-Truth & Little Jimmy: It’s a toss up
Mick Foley: Are you serious?
Santino: Last time I checked people were not running away from socks. They run in fear from cobras.
Mick Foley: The cobra is make believe. There is a ridiculous argument to have. Mr. Socko was the better of the two ridiculous gimmicks.
Santino: Let’s agree to disagree and call it a tie. Even though the cobra is better and he hopes everyone enjoyed the Santino edition of the show and hopes everyone has a slamming Saturday.
Final Thoughts: While this is a show that would not appeal to most of the IWC, you have to commend WWE for their efforts on making a kid friendly TV show. They even go as far as to have the camera pan on the audience when a not so kid friendly move is being executed. When this happens, they always make sure to show other children or the commentary team.
Michael McGillicutty is good worker and highly entertaining. A lot of his mannerisms were reminiscent of his father, Mr. Perfect. He even sounded like the late great Hall of Famer when he was making short jokes at Rey Mysterio expense. Their match reminded me of a Loony Tunes cartoon where Elmer Fudd chases Bugs Bunny.
