Smackdown Review: Sep. 24/10

I do sincerely apologize for the lateness on this. It's been a busy weekend. I don't have time to do my own write up, so I'll copy and paste WZ's in. I'll still do my own ratings and comments though.

The show opens with kane defeating Chris Masters. The masterlock was on pretty good, and Kane sold it well but he eventually got out of it and won with a tombstone. He promod and came over the barricade and into my section. he sat next to this kid and kept talking and the kid looked scared shitless. Kane was about 3 rows in front of me.

Rating: 4/10. The promo was much better than the match. I don't see the point to even having the match to be honest.

McIntyre and Cody defeated the Hart Dynasty.

Rating: 6/10. It was alright, and I'm glad to see 2 newer guys getting a push, but the match wasn't that exciting.

Chavo defeated Kaval. It was a pretty dead match, but me and my friend were cheering like crazy for Kaval. Chavo won clean with a frog splash after point up, in honor of Eddie. This got him some pops, but he had the most crowd reaction.

Rating: 6/10. Good technical work, but dammit why does Kaval have to lose?

Before commercial, Del Rio was standing over Christian in the back whos arm was hurt. Coming back, Del Rio had a promo about Rey Mysterio but Christian comes out and they start fighting but Del Rio gets the upper hand and uses that chair attack on his arm the same he did to Rey.

Big show faces Vance Archer and Curt Hawkins and wins clean after taking Vance down with a belly to back, and then a camel clutch for submission. Theres a hornswaggle segment and its talking lessons. Berretta and Croft are playing as movers for the move to syfy.

 Rating: 3/10. I hate these jobber handicap matches.

CM Punk goes over Luke Gallows with the GTS, after a backstage confrontation when gallows puts Punk against the wall and talks some trash.

 Rating: 8/10. I liked this match. Good to see the storyline progressing.

Dolph Ziggler faces MVP in a non title match. Its a good back and forth, and Ziggler gets knocked outside, kaitlyn and vickie are outside with him. Kaitlyn is trying to help him up, and vickie gets jealous and pulls her off. They share words and Kaitlyn pushes vickie on her ass. she walks away and Dolph tries to calm vickie down who walks away to the back. it took the ref a good minute to start the 10 count but MVP comes out and they brawl back into the ring. Ziggler ends up grabbing his title and walking away getting counted out giving MVP the win.

 Rating: 5/10. Good match, but the stuff between Vickie and Kaitlyn was better.

There might have been something else here I dont remember.

During the night there are some undertaker tidbits where hes really beat up about losing at the PPV. The final one is him yelling "go away!" a few times, then he looks up and then stands up, eye rolls and thats the last of that.

Final part of the show, Kane comes out for his announcement for the undertaker announcing their match for HIAC. the lights go out and druids bring a casket down to ringside. Kane opens it, and its Paul Bearer with the urn. Kane is shocked then the lights go out, and Undertaker is in the ring. they start fighting when the lights come back on, but Kane turns around almost into a chokeslam, but he bails and goes to the back. Undertaker poses with Paul Bearer, his music playing, and I think the show ends here.

Average match rating: 5.3/10

Overall Rating: 7/10

The weak matches killed the rating there, but the promos and whatnot were good.

That's all for now. Stay tuned later for my Raw review tonight, and tomorrow will see my first fantasy storyline begin.
