11/11/11 Smackdown

Sheamus vs. Christian: ***

Ted DiBiase vs. Jinder Mahal: N/A

Mark Henry vs. Daniel Bryan: 3/4*

Big Show vs. (three guys): N/A (super squash)

Alicia Fox vs. Tamina: DUD

Hunico & Epico vs. Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso: *1/4

Wade Barrett vs. Randy Orton: **3/4

Great opening match between Christian and Sheamus. Back-and-forth physical encounter.

I'm envious of Daniel Bryan now. Getting a segment with AJ and Kaitlyn.

Huh? Now Ezekiel Jackson getting a video package?

Aksana does the ol' dumb "brunette" moment. Alicia Fox is now Rihanna! Woohoo!

Michael Cole tries too hard to be funny. Either that, or Cole is getting fed some crappy zingers from Vince. Apparently DiBiase won a short match against Jinder during the time I griped about Cole.

Loving the Daniel Bryan entrance theme. What a spot there. Henry just uses brute strength to get out of that LeBell Lock and suplex DB over. Poor Daniel Bryan gets nuked.

Speaking of nukes. Big Show's next! Oh, he took out three guys in a mega squash. Next!

Divas match didn't keep my attention. At least it was short and someone won.

I'm really liking this alliance between Hunico, Epico, and Primo. Strength in numbers. Brought in the real life family ties between Epico and Primo. Perhaps a tag title run in the future and they can do the Freebird Rule. Good stuff here, given the time constraints. Ooh! Codebreaker-Backstabber-Senton triple finisher!

Barrett's got the scraggly hair going now in the UK! Wade is the next guy to have a nice match with Orton. Even if the finish was a bit dirty, Barrett needed the win more than Orton anyway.
