6/3/11 Smackdown

Christian vs. Mark Henry: *1/2

Alicia Fox & Tamina vs. AJ & Kaitlyn: 1/4*

Jinder Mahal vs. Yoshi Tatsu: N/A (squash)

Ezekiel Jackson vs.Wade Barrett (IC Title): 3/4*

Daniel Bryan vs. Ted DiBiase: **3/4

Randy Orton vs. Sheamus (World Heavyweight Title): ***1/2

Christian/Henry was an OK match. Average to me, nothing real special about it. What was interesting was the post-match promo with Christian and Teddy Long. I like the way WWE is using Christian. I haven't read news sites about all this, but it would definitely make sense to use all this stuff as ammo for a Christian heel turn in the future.

So AJ and Kaitlyn are on TV for the second week in a row? I'll take that for sure. The match itself was not that great.

Nice Sin Cara video package. Now if he can actually speak English and get used to working the "WWE style," that would be nice.

Cody Rhodes time. Looks like he and Daniel Bryan will feud, and I'm loving it.

Khali is basically under Jinder Mahal's control now. Woohoo for Khali being a monster. Poor Yoshi gets squashed. Mahal has excellent size, in my book. He's built well, but not super jacked.

Yeah, I skipped all that Obama/Capitol Punishment crap.

IC Title match time! Very impressive spot with Barrett doing the Boss Man Slam on Jackson. Looks like Zeke got even bigger. Crappy finish with the countout, but it is clever.

Daniel Bryan and Cody Rhodes had a great match there. And another example of people having a hard time adjusting to Sin Cara's style. A botch on that Sin Cara springboard hurricanrana spot with Cody. Even DiBiase had a hard time with the whirly-bird head scissors takedown spot.

Oh, it's Johnny Curtis! Don't cry over spilled milk over not getting his tag title shot with R-Truth. Glad they at least remembered that.

Main event...looks like they'll have a lot of time for this one. Christian the special guest ref. Cool spot with Sheamus skinning the cat to get on the top rope. That was one awesome main event, folks. I'm glad WWE came through after all the hype they put into the match. I loved the end of the match. Cole was livid...ahahaha.

Nice ending to the show. Christian gets a bit of heel heat there for decking Orton and walking off with the belt.
