In Ring Segment:

Teddy Long came out to open the show and announced that there will be a job evaluation by Vince McMahon tonight and that he will make sure that this week's edition of SmackDown is the best episode ever with him in charge, however Booker T's music hit and he made his way to the ring. Booker said that he intends to take his job as SmackDown General Manager back, however Vince McMahon's music hit and he came out and stated that only one of them can be the SmackDown General Manager and in order to decide, he wants to see what each man has to put on the plate. Teddy Long announces a WWE Intercontinental Championship match between Curtis Axel and Chris Jericho, while Booker announces a non-tile match between Alberto del Rio and Randy Orton. Brad Maddox interrupted and said that he could do better and noted that Rob Van Dam would be returning to SmackDown tonight. Vince McMahon says that he's made his decision and that the new General Manager of SmackDown is none other than Vickie Guerrero. Vickie came out with a huge smile and then cut a promo on the WWE Universe and how she lost her job on RAW.


Singles Match:

Dolph Ziggler defeated Jack Swagger (w/Antonio Cesaro & Zeb Colter). Post-match, Dolph Ziggler cut a promo on how he should have dumped AJ Lee sooner. The camera then cut to the back with AJ Lee trashing the backstage area after watching Ziggler’s promo, however Big E Langston calms her down and hugs her. Both tease a kiss, however Langston stops in his tracks and kisses AJ on the forehead.


Tag Team Match:

The Shield (Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns) vs. The Uso’s (Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso) was declared a no contest due to interference from Dean Ambrose. Mark Henry came out to make the save, which saw The Shield retreat through the crowd.

WOAH Orton/Alberto!


I was not expecting much from it, both guys are the kind of bores who need someone interesting to face. And also because, well..




But this was a HELL of a main event. Orton had one of his good days and busted out some cool stuff like the corner rollup and the powerslam airswing. I thought the part where Orton put him up top early only to get caught in the draping armbreaker was cool, because with the superplex it makes perfect sense for Orton to put him in that position, and not just convenient. And immediately after, Orton was hunched over and Alberto found him in the perfect position to throw into the post. Just a LOT of little touches added to this.


Finish was amazing too. The RKO-backstabber counter completely knocked me out. Then Alberto takes his mocking a step further and actually tries an RKO (Hi Kurt). Then Orton ends up in the perfect position for the kneeling superkick - and the story of the match has been guys ending up perfectly positioned for things - but Orton ducks and BAM, RKO.


I really freaking loved this match.


It was a really good show in general. Crowd was clearly hot, which helps, and they were clearly completely gaga for Bryan, which ruled. Jericho dragged Axel kicking and screaming to a halfway decent match. RVD/D. Young was a surprisingly fun showcase. Titus breaking up Rolling Thunder with his whistle was amazing.


And MARK HENRY MOFOS! If they give this six-man away on TV they are complete morons. I WILL pay money for that match at Summerslam. Book it Spies.

SD is always entertaining it never fails to impress.


Really good show, show opening was okay. Vickie was good once upon a time good value but she's comes over as annoying in the wrong way.


Dolph/Swagger is always good, these two have really good chemistry and it shows every time they are in the ring together.


Bryan/Wade was also good, my only niggle was that it was a little short. A shame that Wade was the one sacrificed for Bryan but has got do much momentum at the moment so I won't hold it against him.


Could have gone without seeing Axel/Y2J but once again Jericho did a good deed on his way out by helping someone younger out.


RVD/Young was a good shirt match. RVD does look fresher but it's all so old hat.


Orton/ADR was quality from start to finish. Don't care what people say about Randy as he is in my opinion one of the top workers in the WWE. Everything he does is perfect and he makes it look effortless. ADR has also had a new lease of life after winning the World Title, his character already seems fresher and reinvigorated. Good match between these two and a great finish.


Good show
