Friday Night Smackdown

Friday Night Smackdown was anything but exciting.  Should we be surprised; the man who claims to be Mr Excitement doesn’t have a clue what the word ‘Excitement’ means.  The Daniel Bryan / AJ drama needs to come to an end and someone rewrite the script.  There is nothing cool about him playing the jerk of a boyfriend who continues to publicly humiliate his ex-girlfriend.  AJ plays the part of a girl who lacks both self-respect and self-esteem.  She makes women in general look stupid!  Can’t figure out where Natalya comes  in the whole scenario, but more power to her for not retaliating when AJ tried to vent her frustration on her.

The Cody Rhodes and Big Show feud continues.  Cody interference in the match between the Big Show and Alberto Del Rio resulted in Del Rio picking up the win.  Give Del Rio credit, he is a great wrestler; but is it me or does it appear that most of the matches he has won there is always some outside interference?

 

Ryback is being portrayed as a tough wrestler.  The problem with this picture is that his opponents are always the guys he can demolish with one blow.  So far he has not been given any real competition.  Who wants to pay to see a match which is only going to last a few seconds and you know who the winner is going to be even before the bell rings.  Come on that’s boring!

The tag team match between Usos and Darren Young and Titus O’Neil was a well contested match.  Both Darren and Titus show that they are ready for Friday Night Smackdown.  They worked well together and won the match against the Usos.

The match of the night was a six man tag team match seeing The Great Khali, Randy Orton and Sheamus on one team and Cody Rhodes, Daniel Bryan and Mark Henry on the other.  The Great Khali was taken out of the equation by Cody Rhodes before the match even got off to a start.  The Great Khali wrestling days may be coming to a close as it is obvious is knees don’t hold up that well.  Cody’s celebration was cut short when the Big Show whom he had kicked in the head earlier, causing him to lose his match, came out to replace Khali.   It was a back and forth match which finally ended with Randy giving Mark Henry the RKO to pick up the win for his team.

Friday Night Smackdown

John Laurinaitis is now General Manager of both Monday Night Raw and Friday Night Smackdown.  Not surprisingly he has started to abuse his power.  He offered Teddy Long a job then threatened to suspend his grandchildren education fund if he did not accept.  That is sinking a bit low.  Mess with the man all you want but when it comes to children’s education, you don’t mess with that.  He should be ashamed he even said that for the world to hear.  He is talking about people power, giving the people what they want but what he is displaying is Johnny’s power, getting even with the  people who supported Teddy Long.

He has already threatened C M Punk and tonight R Truth was his first victim on Friday Night Smackdown when he was placed in a handicap match with David Otunga and the world’s strongest man Mark Henry.  I do hope good sense will prevail and he will focus more on pleasing the people rather than pleasing himself.

Randy Orton redeemed himself after his loss at Wrestlemania by beating Kane in a No Disqualification Match.  It was a tough fight going back and forth but in the end Randy managed to pull off a RKO which won him the match.  No doubt Kane is going to want to return the favor.  We are going to see how this one goes.

Tonight Daniel Bryan displayed to the world that he really is a jerk.  I am not surprised that he blames AJ for his loss at Wrestlemania, sharing none of the blame himself.  As far as he was concerned it was all her fault. If he had won he of course would have taken full credit.  It comes as no surprise also that he would publicly humiliate her by dumping her in public, he never did care much about her in the first place, but calling her dead weight and shouting at her to get out of his ring?  That was taking it a bit far.

Big Show continued his winning streak by defeating Heath Slater.  He attempted a cat and mouse game with with Cody, however Cody got away.   Alberto De Rio returned to Friday Night Smackdown and was able to manipulated his way into winning the match causing Sheamus to lose his temper and attack the referee.  This of course will not go down well for Sheamus.
