11/25/11 Smackdown

Hunico vs. Justin Gabriel: *

AJ & Kaitlyn vs. Natalya & Beth Phoenix: N/A

Sheamus & Zack Ryder vs. Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger: **1/2

Ted DiBiase vs. Heath Slater: *

Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Wade Barrett: ***

I didn't think they'd find a crutch sturdy enough to hold Henry up as he hobbled down to ringside. And Henry refuses to keep his mouth shut as he calls Show a loser. Now why in the world would you do that? Cole, you are seriously a moron.

The Daniel Bryan fake world title win was the biggest tease I've seen for a MITB. It did serve a nice purpose to get Mark Henry more heel heat as a heel that escaped on a technicality, but it also makes me want to punch Cole in the face even more.

OK stuff between Gabriel and Hunico. They had time for some spots, but they needed at least five more least.

AJ got some new music here. Unfortunately, it was merely a squash. Kaitlyn is getting prepped for a heel turn, it seems. But seriously, I'd rather have Kaitlyn kick someone's ass than just stand on the apron like a clueless diva.

Good  tag match. Ryder's insanely over right now, and I really hope they continue to push him.

I personally have no clue what WWE has planned for DiBiase. He has the pedigree and the talent. I haven't seen him do well on the mic, so perhaps that's what's holding him back in the long run. In the meantime, I can only hope he's used better. As for Slater, I was unaware the guy was still employed. Yeah, basically not caring.

Good fatal four way here. Since the winner challenges Henry next week, one could deduce before the match starts that Orton or Bryan would win. Leave it to Bryan to take a bunch of the cool-looking spots (at DB's expense). He took that Doomsday Device and the huge Boss Man slam, for starters. A little awkward moment when all four guys were basically woozy. I have to admit, though, that was a lot of fun.
