Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction 6-29-12

Josh Isenberg

- Sheamus cuts a promo backstage.

-AJ and Daniel Bryan exchange words. Bryan gives her a number for a doctor to seek help. She chants "Yes!" and walks out.

Ryback def. Brendan Burke and Dan Barone

What I Liked:

Another squash match. What is there to say really? Same deal over the past two months. He is extremely strong and really on the cusp of something bigger.

What I Disliked:

Where is the creative aspect of Ryback? Are we sick of it yet? I am, and I want something different. It is about time to give him real competition. There is nothing else I can say about this.

Grade: C-

- Teddy Long sees Aksana and Antonio Cesaro making out in the back. He books those two vs. Layla and Khali next week on the Live Smackdown Special.

Tensai def. Justin Gabriel in a MITB Qualifying Match

What I Liked:

Tensai is moved to Smackdown and seems to find more comfort there. Am I a supporter of him now? No, but I feel like he was pushed too hard and shoved down our throats on Raw. That is something that needs to be done on Smackdown. Tensai basically dominates the match, which is nothing new. I thought Gabriel did a great job with his only offense, a dropkick and a springboard moonsault to get Tensai off his feet. The finish came when Tensai hit a big splash for the win.

What I Disliked:

Tensai does not deserve to be in a ladder match. This is so ridiculous to me, especially because he has no personality and no real drive towards improving. He continues to be put into the same spot, and already has showed signs of fading.

Grade: C-
