wwe smackdown reactionThe Uso's vs. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan ended in a double count out. Smackdown kicks off with a really solid tag team match between guys that seem to fight every other week. Jimmy and Jey really kicked off the match in fast pace only to be slowed down by the power of Rowan and Harper. The match heads into an early commercial and we come back with The Uso's fighting back. Jimmy and Jey hit kicks in stereo and fly to the outside. As they are attack Rowan, Harper hits a massive clothesline and the ten count is reached. After the match, Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan come out and attack the brothers. Bryan and Bray pose at the end of the night. This was great because WWE is actually continuing a storyline from Raw and heading it into a big tag match with Bryan and Bray vs. The Uso's on Raw. The double count out was the perfect way to end the night. You do not want the family to suffer a loss and you want to try and keep intrigue in Jimmy and Jey potentially knocking off Daniel Bryan and Bray Wyatt. I am really looking forward to seeing how this match is booked on Monday.

Score: 7/10

Rey Mysterio, Sin Cara and Los Matadores defeated The Real Americans and Rybaxel. This was a cluster of a match between too many guys with the same offense. What is the difference between all four masked men? Aside from the occasional botches from Cara and Matadores, nothing. Ryback and Cesaro are the muscle, while Axel and Swagger are more of the technicians. I really did not understand why the faces picked up the win. Maybe I did not understand having these guys all in one match. I would rather have seen a few singles matches out of it or potentially a REASON to care about the faces. Cesaro and Swagger deserve much better than this.

Score: 5/10

Xavier Woods defeated Fandango with a quick roll-up. What the hell are they doing with Woods? If they really thought that he was going to be a major player, they would NEVER bring him up without a plan. There is no plan with him right now and it is easy to see. We can never have enough Zack Ryder's in the world and it seems like Woods could be that guy in a year or so when the new shine wears off of him.

Score: 3/10
