Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction 6-8-12

Josh Isenberg

Sin CaraBrodus Clay def. Derrick Bateman

What I Liked:

Quick action and aggression from Clay. We have seen this before, but it was nice to see him focus more on wrestling and fighting, and not dancing. Good work from Clay and also Bateman who took some nice looking bumps.

What I Disliked:

Now, Clay is on Smackdown. So we will see him, Ryback, Cesaro, and Sandow squash opponents on a consistent basis? Yeah, this is ridiculous. Where is the world are the storylines? We are going to continue this cycle with no end in sight. Month after month, show after show, we continue the charade.

Grade: C

Sin Cara def. Drew McIntyre

What I Liked:

I am happy anytime we see the talented McIntyre in action. This was much more interesting for me because I want to see how Cara works with bigger guys, bigger superstars who are not as fast as him. We see some good action between both guys, including some offense from McIntyre. Cara cannot easily breeze through these guys, and it is nice to see something different. Well done, especially a nice DDT in the middle of the match to mix things up. Cara hits a few nice moves from the top, and does his usual offensive flurries. There was good timing, the pace was perfect, and they really did a solid job telling a story.

What I Disliked:

The mood lighting needs to go. Book Cara as a talented wrestler, not a sideshow.

Grade: B+
