8/15/08 Smackdown

Star rating key:
(negative stars) = Huh?! (BS finish; most squash matches)
DUD = Boring match (or could not enjoy the match)
1/4* to 3/4* = It had watchable moments.
* to *3/4 = Average match.
** to **3/4 = Above average match.
*** to ***3/4 = Great match; usually saved for PPVs
**** to ****3/4 = Match of the year candidate
***** = The rarest of all matches. A classic.

8/15/08 Smackdown:
Jeff Hardy vs. Shelton Benjamin (U.S. Title): ***1/4
Maryse & Natalya vs. Maria & Michelle McCool: *1/2
The Brian Kendrick vs. Scotty Goldman: 1/2*
Triple H vs. Kenny Dykstra: -**
The Big Show vs. Ryan Braddock: -****
Vladimir Kozlov vs. Festus: *1/2

NOTE: Keep in mind that these ratings are put on the same scale as PPV matches. Trust me, if Vince McMahon put some of these squash matches on a PPV (see matches with negative star ratings), fans would want their money back.

SummerSlam on Sunday. The card looks very strong, and I can't wait to review those matches.
