I'm not sure the exact order of matches. Kurt Angle was there and made several
plugs for giving Smackdown! fans "Only The Best Talent", etc. Pretty good house
show overall! Although, the Mobile Civic Center wasn't even close to being packed.
They still had floor seats available!
Theodore Long came out several times as well with his "recruiting method".....he
spoke with Orlando Jordan and the Dudley Boyz.
BIG pops for Hardcore Holly (he's a Mobile native) / Paul Bearer is H-U-G-E! He's
put on T-O-N-S of weight. I would say 100 pounds heavier than when he was with WWE
before. He got great response, too (also a Mobile native)!
No Big Show, though.......he was originally slated to wrestle Eddie Guerrero. I
assume because of his continued "back trouble", they're keeping him fresh for the
Smackdown! taping on Tuesday night?!
I was also granted backstage access!! I was able to hang out with John Cena for a
while. He's a really "down to earth" good guy....I've enclosed a attachment of the
pic! Feel free to use on your website.
Here are the results! Keep up the good work. I really enjoy your website.
