Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction 11-4-2011

Josh Isenberg

The Big Show comes out to talk about Mark Henry. He says until he gets his rematch, he will continue to knock out Henry each week. Out comes Christian, who mocks Big Show about his comments. Christian asks Show why he should get another match, they bicker back and forth until Show chokeslams Christian.

Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett (filling in for Christian)

What I Liked:

I enjoyed the back and forth battle between both guys. These two, in my mind, are the long future stars of the company. They have great chemistry, great powerful spots, and really time each other's spots perfectly. The match lasted about ten minutes, which gave enough time for  both guys to explore their offensive moves, use counters, and use the quick match to end efficiently without either guy looking weak.

What I Disliked:

Not too much wrong with the match, and loved the brawling backstage to further the hatred between two brawlers. I only worry that Christian and Barrett will feud with Sheamus, but who will have his back? It is tough to have two different guys to feud with.

Grade: B

Sin Cara vs. Epico:

What I Liked:

The cousin of Carlito and Primo debuts on Smackdown. I was interested to see what they do with him. He is a heel, with help from Hunico, as I enjoyed the classic beat down between these men. Cara, to me, really is stuck in a hard place. He is so single dimensional with his characteristics. Yes, he is entertaining and athletic, but what else is there to him? The match was short and just okay.

What I Disliked:

The overall match, the progression of moves, and the ability to under utilize both of these guys. Boy, what if the WWE had a Crusierweight Championship? Cara, Kidd, Hunico, and many other talented guys who do not get great feuds because of their size.

Grade: C
