Tonight, we take a look at the January 27th, 2000 episode of SmackDown. This was the fallout from Royal Rumble 2000. Tazz made his SmackDown debut, starting a long and fruitful relationship with the SmackDown brand as he squashed the Mean Street Posse. Mae Young also pulled a Tony Khan and had a major announcement: she’s pregnant. Test and Gangrel also had one hell of a hardcore brawl for the Hardcore Championship, with Test even powerbombing Luna Vachon onto a piano at one point. Yes, this is a spot that actually happened. We also got a major storyline development, as Tori turned heel on Kane by hooking up with X-Pac. And finally, Cactus Jack had a promo with Stephanie. Admittedly not the most exciting angle to advance Cactus/HHH after Royal Rumble. But the stuff in this episode that worked really worked, this was a fun SmackDown.
On to the Nightly.
