Welcome everyone to the NEW Laying the SmackDown with Andrew B as I’m Back. Tonight we have Sin Cara battling the Miz. Also Tensai squares off against Randy Orton. Plus Sheamus & Daniel Bryan competes in the main event. So let’s begin now.
This review will be shorter as I have been busy with work so let’s just highlight the important stuff.
- The opening segment was decent as it got over the effect of the Brogue Kick. It was good & set up a match between Bryan & Sheamus in the main event. It was a damn good match & worth watching.
- Speaking of worth watching Miz vs. Sin Cara was not worth watching. Sin Cara messed up a lot & you could tell there were many botches in the match. Miz is a good worker but Sin Cara made him look bad.
- Wade Barrett didn’t have a match tonight but he cut a damn good promo about how next week somebody will pay. It has me looking forward to next week.
- I love the recent interaction between Bryan & Kane. This week we had an anger management segment that was basically about who had a bigger stress ball. It leads to a match between Kofi Kingston & Kane that was quite good even though it was short. After Kane hugged Kofi Kingston which made me laugh.
- Antonio Cesaro, a guy who I am a fan of cut a promo complaining about the pre-show battle royal & said outrage in 5 languages but was cut off by Tyson Kidd. Cesaro made short work of Kidd but was then attacked by Brodus Clay. I am hoping this leads to Kidd winning the battle royal.
- Kaitlyn vs. Beth Phoenix was a decent Divas Match but it was the same as every Diva’s match basically.
- Just like almost every member of the WWE Universe I don’t like Tensai but you have to give someone props when they deserve it & boy does he deserve it this week. Tensai had one hell of a match against Randy Orton & in fact I would give it *** out of 5. Possibly his best match since returned & it is up there with his RAW match a while back against Sheamus.
SmackDown was not that good but it was understandable as the day before it was taped Jerry Lawler had a heart attack & that was more important than they show. If you watch anything from this show, the opening promo, Orton vs. Tensai & Sheamus vs. Bryan other than that skip the show. Also the Cesaro promo is interesting & everything with Kane is also recommended. I’m interested to see what happened with Wade Barrett next week.
