Quick Hits: WWE Smackdown 2.7.14 (w/Justin C)
Daniel Bryan/Kane Opening Segment
-So this is the exact opposite of TNA this week. Abyss gets his mask taken off, and Daniel Bryan is trying to convince Kane to put his mask back on.
-Daniel Bryan is to the point where he pretty much has the crowd in the palm of his hand.
-Kane makes Daniel Bryan vs Antonio Cesaro for later tonight. That’s not punishment at all, at least for the fans.
Kofi Kingston and Dolph Ziggler vs Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns
-It’s nice to see The Shield broken into a tag match like this, especially with current storylines and how they are playing out.
-And Seth Rollins is doing a pretty good job on commentary as well.
-Reigns hits the Superman Punch and Spear on Ziggler, but Reigns then tags in Ambrose and lets him come in to pick up the win.
-The Wyatts cut a promo on The Shield after the match, calling out The Shield for their arguments and not taking them seriously.
Sheamus vs Ryback (w/Curtis Axel)
-Waiting for Ryback to bust out the Pepsi Plunge during this match.
-Ryback GOES TO THE TOP ROPE??? But he misses the splash.
-Sheamus wins with the Brouge Kick. For these two guys, this wasn’t that bad of a match.
Daniel Bryan vs Antonio Cesaro (w/Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter)
-Right now I don’t have much to say. Just enjoying a match between two very good wrestlers.
-Bryan wins after a hurricarrana into the YES Lock. Wish this would have gone a little bit longer than it did.
-Kane comes out after the match. The distraction allows Cesaro to hit the Neutralizer, then Kane hits a chokeslam afterwards.
AJ Lee (w/Tamina) vs Nikki Bella (w/Brie Bella)
-The piped in crowd noise is funny in Divas matches.
-Brie has a really annoying voice. She seems like a nice girl, but that voice is just awful.
-AJ wins with Black Widow, which Nikki Bella sold with a constipated face and nothing else.
-Titus O’Neil is interviewed by Rene Young, and after Darren Young attacks him. Why couldn’t that have been done on RAW?
Bray Wyatt (w/Erik Rowan and Luke Harper) vs Goldust (w/Cody Rhodes)
-Funny spot where Bray does his backwards lean in the corner, and Goldust does his crawl back, with even him being weirded out by Bray.
-Goldust hits a mini senton off the apron onto Bray. I’m still amazed a man his age can do that.
-Rowan and Harper take out Cody on the outside. The distraction allows Bray to take out Goldust and hit Sister Abigail for the win.
-This time its The Shield who cut a promo on the Wyatts after the match.
Randy Orton vs Christian
-Remember the great set of matches these two had in 2011? Yeah, I miss those Randy Orton days.
-Randy Orton gets a lot of undue hate from fans. Is his offense a bit slow? Yes. But he has been pretty good these last few months in his role.
-Orton wins after an RKO. Another good match.
-Okay, who’s ready for John Cena vs Randy Orton Part 2764923 on RAW Monday!! (crickets…..)
-This was a good wrestling show. Some solid action throughtout. The perfect way too book a wrestling show. Now bring RAW back down to 2 hours and fill that with a bit more storylines, keep Smackdown like this, and you are set!
