6/17/11 Smackdown

Ezekiel Jackson, Daniel Bryan, & Sin Cara vs. Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, & Ted DiBiase: *1/2

Jinder Mahal vs. Vladimir Kozlov: *

Big Show vs. Mark Henry: N/A (no match)

Alicia Fox, Tamina, & Rosa Mendes vs. Natalya, AJ, & Kaitlyn: DUD

Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso vs. Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater: N/A (did not watch)

Christian vs. Sheamus: *1/2

Orton promo to start. Orton wants to fight, Teddy Long says no. Christian comes out for a heel promo...then Sheamus seems to have the tweener role in all this. Ha, Christian called Sheamus "strawberry shortcake." Long makes Sheamus vs. Christian for the main event. Sheamus's a triple threat match. Christian wins, title match stays the same. Orton gets a ringside seat tonight.

Six-man tag match...a rematch from a few days ago on RAW. Sin Cara is the spot monkey again. Sin Cara was the face getting beaten up for much of the match! Good time to see how Sin Cara sells moves. Hot tag to Daniel Bryan. That was a bizarre finish....looked like DiBiase kicked out before three there.

Jinder Mahal time. I wouldn't say this was a squash, but the whole point was to make Mahal and Khali look good. Khali interferes and Mahal wins. Mahal has a generic full nelson slam finisher.

Big Show comes out. He wants Alberto Del Rio, but Teddy Long comes out and basically prevents all that. Criminal charges against Big Show are pending for this Mark Henry and Show in a match now.  Welp, Show just beats the crap outta Henry. Henry gets taken out on a stretcher. So much for that.

Six-diva tag match. That was just a waste of time.

I failed to watch the tag match between the Usos and Slater/Gabriel.

Del Rio promo. He's dedicating his next match to Ricardo Rodriguez. Big Show comes out. Del Rio runs away, so Show basically destroys the ringside area.

Main event was OK. Didn't care much for the finish. Orton gets Christian to run away. And Sheamus is punted...wonder if it's gonna be another injury angle.
