Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction 8-24

Sheamus defeats Dolph Ziggler via Disqualification
 
What I Liked:
 
This was a very entertaining match for both guys. Dolph put on a great outing versus the champion, and it all began with speed and athleticism. Dolph got the early advantage and took control with a beautiful DDT on Sheamus. Ziggler continues with an old school approach, locking in a headlock on Sheamus. This slowed down the pace of a fast match, and Sheamus would counter with a side suplex. The ending saw Ziggler get DQ'ed by hitting Sheamus with a briefcase. I absolutely loved the ending because it gave a mean streak to Ziggler. He needs to continue to reach his character to new levels, and this is only helping his progression. Sheamus continues to be a solid piece, if not the best overall piece, on Smackdown. I want to see an extended feud between these two young studs. I continue to be impressed with the overall characters of these two guys.

What I Liked:
 
Santino and Antonio Cesaro exchange some words back and forth before Santino gets beaten down by Cesaro. I like how they are trying to make a feud out of these two guys, but I am simply not interested.
 
What I Disliked:
 
There has not been anything more ridiculously stupid I have seen than Santino talking to his Cobra. This was a complete waste of time and absolutely brutal. I could not finish this segment, and had to fast forward to get to Cesaro coming out. This was a complete joke. I cannot say how horrible I think this was because there is no words to describe it.
