Daniel Bryan & Kane vs. Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow: *

YES EDGE STARTS THE SHOW. Glad he kept the short hair. So he's no longer under contract, but hey, always cool to make special appearances. Edge has never seen anything like Kane and Daniel Bryan as a tag team. Hug it out! Enter DB. Nice Vickie reference, Daniel. NO YES NO YES NO YES! Hahaha. Kane pyro time. Wait, was Barney a big red dinosaur? Thought he was purple. Don't ask how I know that. HUG IT OUT WITH KANE AND EDGE. That's gold Jerry, gold! GROUP HUG? Damn you, Sandow.

Thus, we get Kane and Sandow. Kane and DB argue on the tag team champions dealie, and Sandow takes advantage for the win. Sounds about right.

I dunno why, but this damn DB/Kane storyline is awesome. I AM THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS.

Eve on commentary as Layla takes on Natalya. Wait, shouldn't Layla get one of those auto rematches as the former champ? Eh, whatever. Poor Nattie doing jobbing duty again.

In related divas news, rumor mill churning that Beth Phoenix is set to retire at the end of October. Would be a shame to lose one of the divas on the roster that can actually wrestle. Then again, the division has been in the crapper for a while now. Where's Sara Del Rey when you need her?

With Cena now wearing pink to support breast cancer, Ziggler has switched to a black shirt. Lots of action here. Great flow to the match, and you could see the chemistry these four have. Ziggler tries to use the MITB briefcase, but eats a Brogue Kick. Faces pick up the win.

Should be interesting to note that Orton could still be on TV even as he films a movie. All depends on the shooting schedule.

DB now in a match against Cody Rhodes. All part of anger management! Kane enters and does the pyros as DB tries to put the NO lock on. Cross Rhodes for three. Yup. Back to anger management! DB belongs in a petting zoo! YES. Sandow and Rhodes aren't amused. Kane and DB obliviously back on the same page. YES.

Brodus is back on Smackdown with both Funkadactyls. Facing Heath Slater. Air guitar time! After some boring stuff, McIntyre and Jinder storm the ring for the DQ. Slater joins in for a 3-on-1 assault.

Santino picks up a win on Cesaro when Aksana falls in the ring trying to grab that cobra sleeve and the had to tend to her. Note the Neutralizer wasn't used, but instead it was the Euro uppercut. Santino with the rollup for the win and he gets to celebrate. Sorry, no title change here.

Tag match is the main event. Talk about strange bedfellows on both sides. Other tag teams surround the ring, almost lumberjack style. Nice tags at seemingly the wrong time. Cody with the chair shot for the DQ. Kane and DB grab the upper hand and start taking out all the tag teams together with chairs. Breakthrough! Brilliant! Damn, I love this storyline. Not the best matches, but it's damn entertaining.
