Smackdown 4/9/2010 Highlights

I had some issues getting to see the show this week.

Morrison vs Swagger. Swagger was in the corner with Morrison landing punches to his head, followed by a high kneed. Swagger went to counter but Morrison slid under his legs then getting him with a drop kick. It got him a two count. Swagger got Morrison into the corner with a series of shoulderblocks. Morrison countered again, but Swagger used a side press before slapping on submission move.
Morrison went off the ropes and got caught up in a knee from Swagger. Swagger then started to work on the midsection of Morrison. Back in the corner Swagger had Morrison trapped, until Morrison used the ropes falling half out of the ring. Swagger went once again to a submission move. Morrison had battled out only to get tossed across the ring from the top rope by Swagger. Swagger went for a top rope move but Morrison got the legs up stopping him in mid move. Morrison used a series of punches and shoulder blocks but only got a two count. Swagger used the ropes to tangle Morrison but again only got a two count. Morrison used a running sunset flip but only got a two count. Swagger used his gutwrench powerbomb for the win.

Drew McIntyre vs Matt Hardy. Hardy started strong with a series of punches, but Drew countered. He got Hardy in the corner but Hardy used a flying clothesline off the top rope before getting Drew in the ropes with a choke. Both men out of the ring, then Drew put a submission move on him back in the middle of the ring. Hardy battled out with another round of punches. Drew used the top rope in a reversed hangman. He then slapped on a rear chin lock. Hardy slapped on the side effect but only got a two count. Hardy went for a running clothesline but was stopped with a back elbow from Drew. Drew then was outside of the ring, and Hardy used another flying elbow to Drew across the neck. Drew got back and countered with a double underhook DDT outside of the ring. Rolling Hardy back into the ring Drew got the pin.

Caylen Croft/Trent Barreta vs Hart Dynasty. Kidd and Croft started it off. Kidd used a slid around and drop toe hold combo before getting a side head lock on. He then used a snap suplex. Croft countered with a shoulder block from outside of the ropes but it got him nowhere. Barreta tagged in, landing a flying elbow on Kidd. He got Kidd in the corner with a series of knees, but he managed to tag in Smith. Smith used a clothesline and shoulderblock turning things in his favour. Smith pulled out a sharpshooter for the win.

Jericho vs Edge. They started with a collar tie up which lead to a side head lock on Edge. Jericho used a shoulder block but Edge tossed him out of the ring. Back in the ring and Jericho delivers a weak looking kick to Edge, and Edge countered with a drop toe hold sending Jericho to the second rope. He then used a series of forearms to the face before wrapping Jericho around the ring post. Edge continued to work on the bandaged ribs of Jericho. Jericho did manage to pull out a spring board knocking Edge off the ring apron. Jericho followed with a bottom rope choke. It got him a two count. Back to the ropes for another choke hold on Edge. Jericho had Edge down with a boot to the throat. Jericho went for another cover but only got a near fall. He used a snapmare and submission move, but Edge powered out. Jericho used a baseball slid to get Edge out of the ring. Back in the ring, and Jericho was in control with a series of kicks then sent him face first into the top ropes. Another snapmare into a modified choke but Edge powered out once again. He turned it around getting Jericho into the corner, following with a clothesline and flapjack. Jericho used a bulldog to set up for his lionsault but Edge got his knees up. Jericho then slapped on his walls of Jericho, which Edge broke by getting to the ropes. Edge got a large boot up but it only gave him a near fall. Jericho landed the codebreaker but Edge flew out of the ring, the count started, and Jericho rolled Edge back into the ring, but still only a two count. Edge went for the spear but Jericho slid out of the ring, Edge going after him and they were both counted out.
