8/30/11 Super Smackdown

John Cena vs. Wade Barrett: 1/2*

Sin Cara vs. Daniel Bryan: *3/4

Natalya & Beth Phoenix vs. Kelly Kelly & Alicia Fox: 1/2*

Sheamus vs. The Great Khali: DUD

Randy Orton vs. Christian (Cage; World Heavyweight Title): ***3/4

A live Super Smackdown tonight! Live from Wichita, Kansas! Liked the Cena opening promo, especially when taking jabs about the Shockmaster and the XFL. Cena calls Alberto out again, but gets Ricardo Rodriguez instead (in reality, ADR has visa issues so he missed this week's shows). "You sound like two cats trying to have sex and throw up at the same time." Haha.

Match between Cena and Barrett was not really worth my time to watch...next!

Oh wow, Daniel Bryan vs. Sin Cara. A very good match because they got time. Sin Cara looked like he had a version of an Angle Slam. Nice win forSin Cara...he needs it more than Daniel. Looks like Sin Cara is more a heel now after decking DB after the match.

Guess it's really official now. Bourne and Kingston are Air-Boom.

Aksana is the special ring announcer. Divas of Doom in a tag match. Alicia now tagging with Kelly only because Beth and Natalya nuked Alicia a couple weeks ago. Not bad, but the crowd was mostly dead.

Contract signing between Punk and HHH for Night of Champions. Punk's crowd reaction is not as strong tonight. Whatever the case, these two are so damn good on the mic. I love it. Did HHH just say "skinny fat ass?" Yeesh. Here comes Nash! Nash even exploded on HHH...hmm.

Sheamus and Khali? Uh oh...don't like the sound of that on paper. Yeah, this match was pretty bad.

Cage match finished this show. Again, Orton and Christian got lots of time, which was awesome. Match of the night by far, and probably match of the week. They even got "this is awesome" chants! Orton scaled that cage like a cat. Vintage fighting on top of the cage! Super RKO FTW! Uh oh, here comes Mark Henry! The #1 contender nukes Orton to finish off the show.

Probably the end to the Orton/Christian feud, but what a run it was. People say it's the Summer of Punk (especially with the Cena feud -- and now HHH), but it's the Orton/Christian series of matches that really impressed me more. More quality matches on one storyline than I've seen in a very long time, probably ever.
