Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction “A Night For The Future Stars”

The Storylines

smackdown reaction– Paul Heyman and Zeb Colter debate over why Cesaro has become a "Paul Heyman Guy." Zeb says all of Cesaro's success comes from him. Heyman says his client conquered the streak over and over again. Heyman goes on to say that Cesaro won the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal as a "Paul Heyman Guy." Colter and Heyman get in each other's faces and this leads to Cesaro vs. Swagger.

Cesaro defeated Jack Swagger

This was an excellent match between former partners. Through multiple commercial breaks, Cesaro comes back with an incredible uppercut and some impressive clotheslines. The speed and smooth transitions show you that both men know each other so well. Cesaro hits a giant swing and then hits the Neutralizer. Cesaro picks up the win, but out comes The Shield. They hit a Triple Powerbomb onto Swagger after the match. (This will be broken down later in the night.)

Score: 7.5/10

Tamina defeated Natalya

Tamina grabs Nattie by the hair and throws her to the outside. Back inside the ring, Tamina hits a clothesline. She hits multiple knees to her back and gets a two count. Natalya briefly fights back, but Tamina hits a massive kick for the win. 

Solid match for Tamina to pick up a win heading into Extreme Rules. She deserves the shot, but I wish her character had more time to be developed. She is a really underrated wrestler in the Divas Division and could use a real identity before her championship match. 

Score: 5/10

-The Shield attacks 3MB and lays them out in the back. 

Curtis Axel defeated Jey Uso

Axel works on Jey on the outside, but Jey hits some big chops to his chest. Axel hits a high knee onto Jey and then follows with another running knee. Ryback causes a distraction on the outside, which gives the advantage to Axel. Curtis Axel hits a Hangman's Facebuster for the win.

Logical booking for the challengers to pick up a win. I highly doubt they defeat The Uso's, but there needs to be more teams established right now for the division. This is the best heel team they have, which is not saying much. 

Score: 6/10
