Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction “Last Stop Comes Up Short”

The Main Events

wwe smackdown reactionThe Wyatt Family defeated Cody Rhodes, Goldust and Rey Mysterio in 6 man tag team action. An exciting match here for the fans to really enjoy. This was the final stop for Wyatts before their encounter with The Shield. Cody started the action in the ring with Harper until Rowan hits a nice fallaway slam. Goldust gets in the ring and takes much of the punishment until a hot tag to Mysterio kicks things up a bit. Bray and Rey worked unusually well together, not having much chemistry prior to the match. Rey dives at Harper but Harper catches him, then Cody dives on him as Goldust bulldogs Rowan and sets him up for Shattered Dreams. Bray makes a blind tag and hits Goldust with an elbow to the face, followed by Sister Abigail for the win. I really enjoyed the match, but needed to see The Shield on the screen. I would have loved if the lights went out and The Shield mocked the Wyatt Family. It may have been too much of a face thing to do though.

Score: 7/10

Sheamus defeated Christian in the main event of the night. The match was really good. I think people underestimate Sheamus' ability in the ring. The guy is 250 pounds and moves around like a 200 pounder. The evenly paced match finished when Christian's Killswitch was reversed into a White Noise. Here is what I observed throughout Smackdown: (Score: 6.5/10)

-Christian and Sheamus are both better as heels, but Sheamus is over with most of the crowd.

-The show lacked star power and really did not focus on the Elimination Chamber main events as much as it should have. No Cena or Orton shows you that this is still the "B" show. Also, no Shield, Batista or Del Rio. THOSE ARE YOUR TOP THREE MATCHES. WWE decided to waste segments on things that do not pertain to the Pay-Per-View on Sunday.

-Kane bothers me in a suit. It's enough already.

WWE Smackdown Score: 5/10
