1. This is the first time I’ve been able to see the new preshow and the idea is growing on me. I like the idea of using different superstars/legends every time & also the fact that it doesn’t seem to be scripted at all. It allows some of the better talkers to show what they can do when not handed a script from a writer. I’m intrigued to see who is on future shows and who sinks or swims. That being said, there’s no way in hell I’m staying awake for a PPV post-show. For a company who already knows they have too much programming, why the hell would they add more?!
2. Dean Ambrose vs Kofi Kingston was one of the best matches of the year thus far. The only time the match’s paced slowed was when Ambrose locked on the classic Bob Backlund “Crossface Chicken Wing”. The ground game of Ambrose played off of Kingston’s aerial moves perfectly and the finish clean! A heel actually won a championship cleanly! Great match and great chemistry between these two wrestlers and I recommend going out of your way to see these match when you can.
:’The Highlight Reel’ featuring Chris Jericho made a return to Smackdown. I get it, the WWE wants Ryback to be a top star, he’s starting to get there; but does Chris Jericho have to make everyone?
Kofi Kingston United States Champion v. Cody Rhodes
: The past few months, I use months loosely, the life of a WWE Superstar has been like this; if you aren’t involved in a feud and are granted a few minutes of television time each week you get a throw away match. This as just another case of what the hell is the WWE doing with their mid card? Oh yeah, Kofi won.
1. First thing I want to mention is that I’m glad my prediction came true and the new WWE Championship has customizable side plates. It’s a creative update to the traditional nameplate idea and should make for some pretty cool looking WWE Championship designs.
2. Ok, I’ll admit it. The “heel turn/dance move” line was pretty slick. Kudos to John Cena or whomever came up with that line.
