3/2/12 Smackdown

Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler: ***1/2

Santino Marella vs. Heath Slater: 3/4*

Eve Torres vs. Natalya: 1/2*

Big Show vs. Mark Henry: *1/2

Justin Gabriel vs. Drew McIntyre: *

Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton: **1/2

Smackdown was taped in Seattle. Argh, had to miss this as well. Sheamus with a good promo at the start before tangling with Ziggler. Vickie is experienced! That clearly can be taken the wrong way. Hashtag "cougarinchief" trending on Twitter! Vickie really had to get in the ring to get Dolph's foot on the ropes that time. Loved the match, lots of near falls. Normally it'd be over after Swagger interfered, but we went longer. Sheamus' new finisher...White Noise.

Long and Laurinaitis continue their feud. It has its entertaining moments. This one, I could easily fast forward through.

Santino and Heath went at it for a bit, then it was over. Josh, this was not impressive. Sorry.

Eve becomes a real diva, Natalya becomes a farting diva. At least the farting part was entertaining. Can Natalya come and fart in Michael Cole's face?

Cody Rhodes promo. Vintage Akebono and Mayweather moments! Show gets Cody for the IC title at WM. That means no brotherly feud between Cody and Goldust. Also, Shaq was still rumored to be at WM, so we'll see how he's used, if at all.

So while Henry nukes Show, Cody hops down for commentary. Can't believe they had Show kick out of Henry's finisher. That's one powerful right hand. Wonder what woulda happened had Mayweather ran into that.

Drew McIntyre probably has more lives than a cat. Long says if Drew loses  tonight, the Scot is fired. It's Justin Gabriel tonight. Didn't matter because Drew lost in what...maybe five minutes? Drew's fired. Watch him resurface thanks to Laurinaitis.

They killed about 20 minutes to replay the whole Rock/Cena segment from RAW. Saw it already, and it was great. Moving on!

Hey, a cheap pop for Daniel Bryan! Aberdeen is what, maybe an hour-half to two hours south of Seattle? Passed by it a few times, but always had business to attend to. Maybe I'll go down there next time, snap a photo or two, then tweet it to DB.

I loved the "Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!" signs in the crowd for DB. Oh, and a "Mike Knox" sign in the front row! Good match here, with the usual DB weasel countout victory, thanks to...

...WTF, Kane? Um, OK. Laurinaitis thinking of booking Kane against Aksana next week? I guess whatever it takes to get people to tune in....
