WWE Smackdown! Special – 11/29/05

1. Booker T vs. Chris Benoit – 7
2. Big Show vs. Rey Mysterio – 5

This was filmed just thirty minutes from my apartment in Cincinnati, OH. This “special” one-hour edition of Smackdown! featured two, for the most part, stellar matches. Benoit and Booker went the distance; Benoit did a suicide dive outside the ring but only connected with the floor in one of my favorite moments, in a tight and satisfying match. There was a lot of stalling and preposterous logic in the Rey versus Big Show match, and any semblance of decency was thrown out when the ending was marred by heavy interference and story.
