Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction 2-3-12

Teddy Long is backstage with Drew McIntyre. Drew says he needs another shot. Teddy says he better impress and not bore him. He says he will and leaves. Santino enters and says he has a new partner. Hacksaw Jim Duggan comes in. They have a tag match next. Aksana does her usual.

Primo and Epico def. Santino and Hacksaw Jim Duggan:

What I Disliked:

What is there to like in this match besides just seeing your Tag Team Champoions on TV? Hacksaw had a great pop at the Royal Rumble, but this is just ridiculous. Instead of rebuilding the division, they make a joke out of it. Primo and Epico can really work, too, which is why this is ridiculous. I wish these joke matches will end up bringing a Tag Team to "save" us. You can only take too many jokes.

Grade: F

Michael Cole interviews Daniel Bryan. He says he can man up and say he was wrong about Bryan. Bryan appreciates it, but says the interview is about himself. He says all fans need to stop eating meat. He calls the crowd out about killing animals, and says that he should not defend his title in the Chamber against a guy he beat four times. He talks about Show running over AJ and calls him a loser. Big Show comes to the ring and laughs. Big Show calls Bryan an arrogant and pompous ass. Bryan and Show go back and forth for a bit, until Show knees Bryan in the ribs. AJ runs out and stops Show from hitting a chokeslam. Bryan tries for a cheap shot, but he and AJ escape without harm.

Here is my issue. When you build a World Heavyweight Championship feud, why do we need AJ here? She is not an established Diva that the company has invested time into. This shows me their lack of creativity with Daniel Bryan. They really are not sure how to book him as a Champion. Focus on the guys that can build a storyline, and shy away from the AJ angle. It really came out of nowhere, and they seem to hold onto it because they lack integrity when booking Bryan.
