Here’s a live report sent in by reader Bruce Bailey from last night’s WWE Superstars & SmackDown tapings from Fresno, California:
* Edge beat CM Punk when Punk again sold the eye injury and “couldn’t continue”. Punk was more of the heel here.
* John Morrison beat Charlie Haas.
* Zach Ryder beat Tyler Reks.
* The show started with Punk saying that he was hurt at the Bash and kicked the ref by accident. He said Jeff Hardy was out of line for attacking him and he demanded an apology from him. Teddy Long came out and said that Hardy would get a rematch with Punk at Night of Champions. He also said tonight’s main event would be Punk teaming with Hardy against Edge and Chris Jericho.
* Finlay beat Ricky Ortiz in a fast match.
* Dolph Ziggler and Maria were flirting backstage. Ziggler then beat R Truth.
* Vince McMahon’s insanity invaded Smackdown as Kane beat Rey Mysterio with the chokeslam. So much for the revival with Chris Jericho. Great Khali came out and ran off Kane. Poor Rey.
* Jericho and Edge said that their opponents tonight will not be a challenge to them.
* Cryme Tyme beat the debuting Hart Dynasty.
* Melina won a four way match over Maria, Michelle McCool and Layla.
* Edge and Jericho beat Punk and Hardy. Good story here as Punk wouldn’t tag in, selling the eye. Jeff forced him in and Punk “tried” to fight. When he went to make the take, Jeff faked his own eye injury. Edge pinned Punk with a spear.
* Jeff Hardy and Rey Mysterio beat Edge and Jericho in a quick match.
