Curt Hawkins vs. Sami Zayn
<- Woah, Curt Hawkins sighting! Interesting side note, Hawkins new ring gear was actually made by a local New York Mets fan-run clothing designer similar to what Barber Shop Window does for wrestling.
<- This is the WWE TV debut for Zayn and I’m interested to see how he works with a guy who’s been working the WWE-style for a long time now.
<- Nice Steamboat-esque armdrags from Zayn.
-Sorry I missed a week but in return you get two show reviews.
-Alberto Del Rio’s English is worse than usual. Therefore his mic skills are worse than usual, which makes them abominable.
-Here comes Chris Jericho to make Del Rio’s mic work look even worse.
-No Jericho, Rey Mysterio is the Chihuahua
– Almost time for the “Biggest Party Of The Summer”! God, I always hated that tagline. They came up with it when I worked there and I swear I must have written it a thousand times in that one 2 month period.
– They’ve tried SO HARD with Del Rio and while his character does work well opposite Sheamus, it just hasn’t clicked on the level they expected it too. They hoped for a World champion “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase and instead they got a watered down JBL.
– This Chris Jericho interuption is really leading credence to my prediction of what will happen at Summerslam. Look for that prediction article up tomorrow on the Pulse Roundtable and on CE.com.
-Miz opens up the night. I have no problem with him winning. It will open up some good possibilities on the midcard.
-A rematch for the Intercontinental title to start Smackdown. Christian and Miz had a decent match Monday, so I expect a good rematch.
-Excellent counter on the Frogsplash.
-Weird win for Miz with the eye poke. It does line it up for a rematch.
-Lusty boos for Alberto Del Rio here in Texas
-A Mexican man picking on Hispanics about immigration. The WWE does know irony.
-The dealer they borrowed that car from cannot be happy.
-Khali & Layla on the same team? Two awful tastes that make you want to vomit together.
-2nd time they mentioned Khali being a former World Heavyweight Champ. That doesn’t make me feel good.
