Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction July 12th, 2013

AJ LeeThe Main Events

-For the first time in a very long while, WWE did an excellent job making the Divas Championship feud feel really important. They have a contract signing and AJ trashes Kaitlyn. She talks about old text messages she sent to her admirer about the other Divas. It was very clever. I also felt that AJ and Kaitlyn work so well together getting under each other's skin. You can tell that they are close in real life and it shows how good they can be with one another. Kaitlyn talks about how she will not be manipulated again and she shoves the table and AJ into the corner. Big E grabs her and gets a hard slap from Kaitlyn. Kaitlyn then spears AJ and leaves. Like I said, they gave them time and really shined. I loved the extra parts AJ added to make it realistic. She does all the small things to make her character shine.

Grade: B+

Randy Orton vs. Sheamus ended in No Contest. After an excellent match, Daniel Bryan comes out and cleans house. Sheamus punches Bryan down from the ladder and Christian comes out. Christian attacks Sheamus and climbs the ladder. Christian gets tipped over and Orton hits an RKO onto Bryan. Where was Punk? Shouldn't he want to be there? Why didn't he come out? That is my biggest problem with the ending, but I do like the tease to the big match. Also, WWE should have cued RVD's music and have everyone on notice or reminder they have to worry about him too. They could have done a little more to make it successful.

Grade: B

Dolph Ziggler attacked Alberto Del Rio dressed as Sin Cara. I thought this was quite humorous, but it shows you the inability fot WWE to keep a long feud with Del Rio as champion. It seemed more lazy than creative to me. Didn't TNA just do something similar a few weeks back? This idea has been done so much, but I would rather WWE focus on Ziggler and Del Rio getting personal instead of a masked attack.

Grade: C
