6/10/11 Smackdown

Ezekiel Jackson, Jimmy Uso, & Jey Uso vs. Wade Barrett, Heath Slater, & Justin Gabriel: *1/2

Jinder Mahal vs. Trent Barreta: N/A

AJ vs. Tamina: N/A

Sin Cara vs. Ted DiBiase: 1/2*

Daniel Bryan & Sin Cara vs. Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase: *3/4

Sheamus vs. Randy Orton (No DQ): **1/2

Christian heel turn was a good move -- if this keeps him in the main event scene for the rest of his career. He would have been the #2 face behind Orton anyway, and being Orton's foil would only do good things for Christian.

Six-man tag was OK. Barrett runs away from Jackson and the rest of Corre gets nuked. And Corre is no more. Slater and Gabriel have shown me that they can do well as a tag team. Barrett was better off as a singles wrestler anyway. If anything, being with Nexus and Corre allowed Slater/Gabriel to get more exposure and get better in the ring.

Apparently I read on the spoilers that Jinder won against Trent Barreta in a squash match, then AJ won over Tamina in a divas match. Probably didn't miss much anyway.

Christian vs. Orton at Capitol Punishment. Maybe Christian wins this time around and has a decent reign.

Vintage Sin Cara lights in his match against DiBiase! Things were fine in a usual spot-monkey Sin Cara match and then Cody interferes. Oh wait! Daniel Bryan comes out! Teddy Long comes out and he makes a tag match -- which was good for what it was. Again, it felt a bit more like a spot monkey match.

Liked Orton vs. Sheamus. Awesome spots with the kendo stick while Sheamus' foot was caught in the ropes. Of course, Christian had to interfere.

Average Smackdown this week, in my book.
