10/14/11 Smackdown

Battle Royal: *1/2

Beth Phoenix vs. Kelly Kelly: 1/4*

Sin Cara vs. Justin Gabriel: *

Alberto Del Rio vs. Sheamus: *1/4

Kofi Kingston & Zack Ryder vs. Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger: *3/4

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

We're in Dallas for this episode! Long and Laurinaitis start off the show. They've passed Gunsmoke for second place for the longest weekly running episodic show stuff (behind RAW). So of course, epic battle royal time! And I liked the winner's prize...title shot against anyone of the wrestler's choosing.

I lost count of how many people are in there, but at least a lot of people get screen time. I didn't expect Cody to be the first guy out, but whatever. It lasted through THREE commercial breaks! Woohoo! Anyway, I'm not really a fan of this battle royal stuff. Royal Rumbles are different because superstars enter one at a time instead of his crazy battle royal melee dealie. I'm glad Mason Ryan got a little time to shine here. Hopefully he can impress in a good storyline...push that guy and see what happens. Good finish between Miz and Orton. And of course, Orton picks Mark Henry.

KK wearing some Dallas sports apparel gear to the ring to cater to the hometown crowd. Beth and Natalya are the "Sisters of Salvation" now...make up your mind on the team name, WWE! Well, that match didn't really hold my attention much.

And we have Sin Caras dueling! Interesting with the whole mask removal deal. I like Sin Cara negro putting on Sin Cara azul's mask. Justin Gabriel should be a good fit for Sin Cara negro (although he's wearing the blue mask) here.

Alberto gets another win, thanks to Christian. At least Cole admits Christian screwed Sheamus again.

Yeah! Zack Ryder is on the show! And he won! Woo woo woo! You know it!

Orton and Henry finish the show. But Cody interfered again. Damn interference.... Uh oh! Big Show! Faces stand tall on this episode. A very average show at best.
