Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction 1-6-12

Josh Isenberg

Drew McIntyre is upset and yells at Teddy Long. He has one more strike, and Teddy says he may very well be out.

Epico and Primo def. Air Boom:

What I Liked:

I really like Rosa Mendes as the manager, even if she does not do too much. I also enjoyed the matching gear, showing us that they actually look like tag teams. Something that little can mean so much. Epico and primo really work well together, both with a solid ground game, but can easily mix it up with a flying attack. Kofi has some of the best leaping abilities in the WWE.  Rosa did just enough to get her team to win, stepping in front of Kofi. Borune misses Air Bourne due to Epico moving Primo out. The match was fast, did enough to get over the two teams, and continue their very fresh feud.

What I Disliked:

They could have gone for 10 minutes and I would have liked it more, but they do get a win over Air Boom. Does this bury the champs, or just make the new tag team a little more relevant? It has been a while since Air Boom have won consecutive matches, so I may think it could hurt them more.

Grade: B-

Big Show is excited and has a lot of confidence. Daniel Bryan comes in and says he is a good wrestler, and going to be a great one. Bryan rips apart Big Show's title reign and his career. Show grabs his shoulder, but Bryan says get off. I loved this, showing somewhat of a heel persona of Bryan in a quick and effective way. He is getting pissed off, and we can finally see some charisma.

Tamina def. Natayla:

What I Liked:

We got a decent bout between two of the stronger Divas. It was nice to see footage of both of their fathers and the pedigree they come from. Tamina hits a nice splash off the top rope getting the victory. This gives Tamina just enough to have her name in the mix for a title match.

What I Disliked:

I am curious as to why Natayla is losing constantly, and why Beth Phoenix is not with her. just like that, they are apart? No explanation or anything.

Grade: C
