I was at Smackdown Tuesday in Jacksonville, Fl. Here are the results, which will be shown this Friday:
* Kofi Kingston b. Jack Swagger w/Eagle in a King of the Ring Qualifying Match
* Alberto Del Rio b. Big Show via count out when Ricardo Rodriguez got involved in a King of the Ring Qualifying Match
* Drew McIntyre b. MVP in a King of the Ring Qualifying Match
* Kelly Kelly b. Michelle McCool. After the match Layla assisted Michelle in beating up Kelly Kelly but Beth Phoenix came out and made the save.
* Cody Rhodes b. Rey Mysterio when Alberto Del Rio interfered in a King of the Ring Qualifying Match. Del Rio was on commentary for the bout.
The following was a house match only:
* Big Show and Rey Mysterio beat Alberto Del Rio and Drew McIntyre after the Big Show choked slammed Drew and then Rey went on Big Shows Shoulders and dived on McIntyre for the pin
The arena was only half full. I’m guessing 4,000-5,000.
The matches were very good.
Kelly Kelly, Big Show, Rey Mysterio and Edge got the biggest pops
Alberto Del Rio and Kane got the biggest boos.
