Kiss My Foot Match: Michael Cole vs. Jerry Lawler
Cole came out wearing his street clothes, limping, trying to get out of the match. Cole read a statement that he was medically prohibited from competing and asked for the compassion and understanding from Lawler and the fans. Coleâ€™s athlete foot was â€œinfectedâ€ so if Lawler had it in his mouth, Lawler would contract â€œHoof and mouth disease.â€ Cole showed his doctorâ€™s note to the referee. The ref smiled and ripped it up.
Lawler attacked Cole and beat him with a series of right hands. Cole tried to escape so of course, Lawler started ripping his suit off of him. Lawler punched and dropkicked Cole to the floor. Big chant for Lawler.
Cole tried to beg off, then pulled Lawler into the ring steps. He shoved Lawler into the ringside barrier. He took off his sneaker to reveal his nasty looking foot. He shoved it into Lawlerâ€™s face. Lawler grabbed his leg, punched him in the gut and whipped him into the Cole Mine, which he crashed through. It collapsed.
Lawler pulled Cole back into the ring and nailed the fistdrop for the pin.
Your winner, Jerry Lawler!
Lawler started preparing to take his boot off, but had a better idea. Lawler called out Eve Torres. She stood over Cole, then hit a standing moonsault off the top on him. Lawler took his boot off, then stopped and called out someone else. It was Jim Ross. Cole had somewhat recovered and begged off. Ross pulled out a bottle of his BBQ sauce. He poured it all over Coleâ€™s face and down his throat. Lawler took off his sock but Cole retreated from the ring and started making his way back up the aisle. He said there was no way he was going to do it.
Cole took the mic and said that it may look like he lost, but he really didnâ€™t. He said that heâ€™s not a loser but Lawler and Ross are. He said that no matter what was done to him, he never did and never will kiss Lawlerâ€™s foot.
Bret Hartâ€™s music hit and out came the WWE Hall of Famer. Bret forced Cole back to ringside and tossed him into the ring. Hart put the Sharpshooter on Cole. As he was trapped, Lawler stuck his foot in Coleâ€™s mouth.
Exactly what it should have been. Entertaining segment. It was getting a little long in the tooth with everyone coming out to get their revenge on Cole but Hart popping up as a surprise (He was in California for an indy show yesterday) was a great way to bookend it. The slow motion shots of Michael Coleâ€™s face were hilarious.
Jim Ross joined Josh Mathews and Booker T on commentary.
Cole sat at ringside crying his eyes out.
