12/19/08 Smackdown

Star rating key:
(negative stars) = Bathroom break; should not be on TV
DUD = Fit for TV, but a big letdown
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.

12/19/08 Smackdown:
Hurricane Helms & R-Truth vs. Shelton Benjamin & MVP: **1/4 (Good job to continue MVP's frustrations. The new year will bring hope for's inevitable.)

John Morrison vs. Festus: *1/2 (Decent, but the bell has really just been used way too much over the last couple weeks. It was funny at first, but now it's just hindering the capabilities of a good match.)

Edge vs. Matt Hardy: *** (Very well done. Easily the match of the night.)

Ezekiel Jackson vs. Carlito: 3/4* (Probably just a real glorified squash, but Carlito did get in some decent offense.)

Maryse vs. Maria: 1/2* (Couple of bright spots, but nothing to really write home about.)

Jeff Hardy vs. Vladimir Kozlov: *1/4 (Kozlov's offense is slow. I couldn't get real into the match. Plus, the DQ finish kills any momentum this match could have had at the end.)
