Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction 10-5

SmackdownOpening Segment

What I Liked:

The Big Show and Sheamus talk about how dominant both men are, and talk about their finishers. Big Show says he knocked out Cena and Orton with his fist, and Sheamus talks about how Show lost to Bryan in under a minute. They get in each other's face. Sheamus extends his hand, but Show does not shake it. He leaves, and Sheamus shows Big Show the video of him losing to Bryan. Show gets back in and Sheamus leaves.

What I Disliked:

I do not like this pairing, to be quite honest. Sheamus is a guy who has not had his ONE big feud, and this is not going to help him either. He needs to find a character to feud with, not someone who has not been able to be booked correctly for years. The interaction needs to be physical, not spoken through a microphone. These are big guys who are better to fight and get physical, not speaking every second.

Grade: C

Prime Time Players Defeats Kofi Kingston and R-Truth

What I Liked:

This was one of the better matches I have seen overall from Young and O'Neil. With the physicality and intensity, O'Neil stood out for me. His clothesline and power slams look great because of his physical appearance. Darren Young is more of the technician, applying a simple head lock onto Truth, followed by a waist lock. The action continues, and we get Kofi Kingston with the hot tag. He hits the Boom Drop, but gets the count broken up. Darren Young hits his finisher, which looks great when executed. The right tag team wins tonight, and really showcases their ability to continue to get over with the crowd. With a great combination or speed and strength, PTP shows why they continue to get the chance.

Grade: B+
