Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction 2-17

Jinder Mahal def. Ezekiel Jackson:

What I Liked:

What is there to like in this match?

What I Disliked:

So Jackson loses to Mahal, a guy who has not done anything in the WWE. I do not get this match or victory whatsoever. I rack my brain wondering why this was on Smackdown right before a Pay Per View. The match dragged, had no crowd interest, and has no long term value.

Grade: F

Tamina and Alicia Fox def. Natalya and Beth Phoenix:

What I Liked:

The match actually showed me something here. Fox did a nice job with a few reversals, using her athleticism and quickness to overcome Natalya's attacks. Tamina took over and did a good job in a quick fashion to hit her splash for the victory. Nice progression in the match, along with teasing Beth and Tamina. I am glad they focused on those two more outside the ring than inside. Let the physicality happen Sunday.

What I Disliked:

This Natalya farting thing makes no sense and is an inside joke which everyone is on the outside. It is so stupid and childish.

Grade: C+

John Laurinaitis talks to Long and says David Otunga will win tonight and earn a spot in the Smackdown Elimination Chamber match.
