Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction 2-22

Josh Isenberg

 Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger def. Kofi Kingston and R-Truth

What I Liked:

Seeing these four in a match was refreshing from the usual tag matches involving The Uso's. Four established guys who are popular with the crowd in different way. I liked how Ziggler and Swagger picked up the victory, even if they may not be in the tag title picture. I personally would love to see it and bring credibility back. Truth and Kofi are very good together, better than Bourne and Kofi could be. Truth is more of the brawler, while Kofi can utilize his strengths, which is speed and athleticism. Dolph's "show-off" persona is growing on me, as he is so good at making people hate him. The crunches are hilarious to me.

What I Disliked:

The match was alright, nothing spectacular here. They did not get enough time to really get into their moves, their chemistry, and their timing. If Swagger and Ziggler do team up more, do they go to WrestleMania in some sort of Tag Team Championship match? I wouldn't love this idea because I would rather see them in a really good one on one match with others or Money in the Bank, but it's a possibility to have them on and maybe try to make it a point of emphasis to make the titles relevant. They are stuck because so many matches and superstars are over shadowing them currently .

Grade: C+

Santino is backstage and Heath Slater comes in. He knocks cups off the table, and Santino has the Cobra spit in his face.

The Great Khali def. Drew McIntyre:

What I Liked:

Nothing whatsoever, what can you like from this match? Two moves and that is it. A waste of time and space on Smackdown. Give McIntyre SOMETHING to do, and get rid of Khali. He does not deserve to be in a match with his lack of ability. Use him as an Embassador role to keep up their international ties.

Grade: F
