Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction 11-29-2011

WWE SmackdownOpening Segment:

Mick Foley comes out dressed as Santa Claus to start the show. He talks about what is in store for tonight. Josh Matthews is dressed like an Elf, and out comes Michael Cole dressed like a reindeer. Booker T comes out as Santa as well. He is quickly interrupted by Cody Rhodes. Rhodes talks about being seen as a fool, and criticizes Booker. Booker says that he has no problem with Cody, but Rhodes says Booker will never get a title again. Foley books the match for tonight.

What I Liked:

It was nice to see this feud take off, but I doubt the match will actually be fought tonight. This is a PPV match, and Booker will not waste his return on a Smackdown in November. Rhodes and Booker do well with one another on the microphone, progressing their feud. It is tough to randomly put two different generations in a feud, a guy who is 46 years old and another who is 26, but they are doing it intelligently without many mistakes.

What I Disliked:

If this match actually goes on tonight, it will be a mistake. I also hate the Christmas costumes for the announcers. Let's be serious here, they are not supposed to stand out in a ridiculous way. I wish they took this more seriously, as the costumes make everyone look less important.

Grade: B+

Divas Mistletoe Match:

What I Liked:

Nothing. Besides from seeing Kelly Kelly and Alicia Fox, what is the point of this match? No title opportunity was given, no meaning, and a complete waste of time. Mick Foley talked longer than the actual match.

What I Disliked:

Having Brie Bella win, what is the point? Who cares about this segment? It is absolutely ridiculous and makes no sense. I wish they would take it a little more seriously, and not book us crap to watch. Give me five minutes of Beth or Natalya.

Grade: F
