– WWE Saturday Morning Slam Results 4/6/13
Commentators: Brad Maddox and Josh Matthews
– Ryback vs. Damien Sandow w/ Cody Rhodes
They lock up and Ryback shoves Sandow down and out of the ring. Ryback go after him but Sandow quickly gets back in the ring and does a cartwheel which receives a big applause from Rhodes. Sandow gets caught and is drilled with a delayed vertical suplex. Sandow ducks a clothesline off the ropes and goes for a cross body but Ryback catches him and hit him with power slam for his troubles. Sandow retreats outside on the apron with Ryback in pursuit.
Ryback beals Sandow out of the corner and delivers splash off the second rope for a two count. Ryback hits the post charging in and Sandow rolls him up for a two count, delivers a few stomps and applies a hammer lock to the injured shoulder. Ryback fights out of it but Sandow regains control with a single arm DDT. Sandow hits the Cubito Aequet and takes a little too much time celebrating on the second rope as Ryback catches him in midair and plants him down to the canvas. Ryback follows up with an atomic drop and a clothesline.
Rhodes distracts Ryback, Sandow hits him from behind and is frightened beyond belief that it had no effect on the big man. Sandow rushes out of the ring and Rhodes grabs Ryback’s leg before he can begin the chase. Rhodes into pulled the ring by Ryback while still holding on to his leg. Sandow gets back in the ring and attempts to roll up Ryback from behind but Ryback shoves him off and drops him with another clothesline and follows up with Shell Shock for the 1-2-3.
We see a highlight video package of Mick Foley tenure, so far, as general manager of Saturday Morning Slam. This leads to Rhodes Scholars complaining to Foley in the locker room saying Sandow’s loss to Ryback was unfair. Foley mentioned Rhodes attempted interference and said since Sandow has a match; it’s only fair Rhodes has a match. Not only is Sandow banned from ringside but the match is next and will be against….KANE. Rhodes was not amused in the slightest.
– Kane vs. Cody Rhodes
Rhodes opens up with some forearm shots to the chin and grabs a headlock where Kane just shoves him out of the ring. Kane traps him in the corner, Rhodes hides in the ropes and the referee breaks it up only for Rhodes to sneak in and grab a headlock. Kane military presses Rhodes over his head and teases throwing him into the commentators table which scares Brad Maddox to no end. Kane teases throwing him out and over the other side of the ring but the referee steps in to prevent the throw and Kane just ends up letting him drop, face first, like a sack of potatoes. Rhodes kicks out at one and catches Kane coming off the ropes with a drop kick to the left knee. Rhodes grabs yet, another headlock and Kane just picks him up, places him on the top rope as if he is going for a belly to back suplex and just shoves Rhodes who falls and hits the floor. Kane marches towards his prey and Rhodes backs away while screaming “I didn’t ask for this match.”
Rhodes takes for corner buckle hard, Kane charges in but Rhodes moves out of the way as Kane hits his head on the top buckle. Rhodes grabs the headlock, walks up the ropes and secures the takeover. Rhodes is thrilled but Kane quickly gets out of it and shoves Rhodes off the ropes for a shoulder tackle. Rhodes gets up, delivers a drop kick and secures another headlock takeover. Kane quickly powers up, again, and gets caught with a drop kick coming off the ropes. Rhodes goes back to the headlock but Kane powers out with a belly to back suplex. Kane hits a clothesline, back elbow, two running clotheslines into the corner and a sidewalk slam for a two count. Kane hits his trademark clothesline off the rope and but gets hung out to dry on the top rope and hit with the disaster kick for a close near fall. Rhodes jumps off the rope but Kane catches him with a big boot and it is lights out for the Rhodes Scholar.
Final Thoughts: Josh Matthews randomly mentioned Mick Foley’s induction into the Hall of Fame this evening during the Kane/Rhodes match. However, there was no mention of WrestleMania, at all. Not even a commercial hyping the Rock vs. Cena match. This was very surprising as I would assume they would plaster it all over a show watched by children.
