9/9/11 Smackdown

Mark Henry vs. Ezekiel Jackson: 1/2*

Sin Cara vs. Tyson Kidd: *3/4

Kelly Kelly vs. Natalya: *1/4

Wade Barrett vs. Sheamus: *1/2

Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne vs. Jinder Mahal & The Great Khali: *

Randy Orton vs. Cody Rhodes: **3/4

Nice video package on Mark Henry to start the show. He then cuts a pretty good promo. Zack Ryder comes out and puts in a no-contact rule between Henry and Orton until Night of Champions. Ryder stupidly tries to fight Henry and gets nuked. But now Big Zeke comes in for a match against Henry!

Battle of two big guys this time actually intrigued me. Probably shouldn't have cared much. Henry wins without too much offense from Zeke.

Aksana and Teddy Long again.  Oh, Aksana's talented, ring announcing is not the only thing she can do with her mouth. She can sing too! Somehow, I wish Jillian Hall was still with the company.

Sin Cara time. I read that the original Sin Cara (Mistico) will be back to feud with Hunico (the person that played Sin Cara in Mistico's absence). So which Sin Cara will we get this week? Good stuff in his match with Kidd. Oh, Sin Cara can speak English! Must be Hunico under the mask because I hear Mistico's English is pretty bad. Daniel Bryan comes out. DB vs. Sin Cara next week! Oh, Sin Cara with the LeBell Lock on DB! This is good. Real good.

Divas match time. Not bad here. Good finish.

Christian wants one more match. Sheamus interrupts. Christian eventually leaves and Barrett comes out for his match with the Great White. Of course, Christian just had to interfere at the end.

Wonder of anyone caught Edge on "Haven" last night on SyFy. I was in Portland and not near a TV.

Air-Boom time. Mahal angry at Khali...Khali snaps and Air-Boom gets the win. Here we go with the start to that feud.

Orton and Cody in the main event. Orton's been on fire this year. Another fine match. Cody looked good in the ring as well.

So much for the no-contact rule. Orton and Henry get physical, and Mark wins this battle. Good shot of the crowd looking all concerned. It's still real to them, dammit!
