Title This: WWE SmackdownThe Undercard

Rhodes Dynasty defeated The Real Americans to retain the WWE Tag Team Championships. This title match kicked off Smackdown in a very exciting and fast-paced match. The Real Americans seemed to have the titles won a few different times. Swagger locked in his Patriot Act and looked to have Goldust out. Cody hits a Disaster Kick onto Swagger, but Cesaro came in and hit his impressive giant swing. After this, Goldust finally hit his finisher, which looks so crisp and effective for the win. The match was planned to perfection for both teams. It makes me want to see them fight more. The chemistry in the ring was also very good. You can sense the drama in this match from the very beginning. Why can't Raw have title matches like this? Oh yeah, country music is more important.

Grade: A-

Naomi and Cameron defeated AJ Lee in a Handicap Match. Tamina used her power to interfere in the match. She eliminated Cameron for most of the match. Lee hits a neckbreaker and a few more holds until the numbers game takes over. The Funkadactyls pick up the victory in a match that should have involved more Divas after it was finished. Let all the roster come out and fight. Will that do any harm? No.

Grade: C-

Ryback defeated The Great Khali. Nobody cares about either of these guys and I simply did not invest any interest. Ryback is strong. That is all this match told us.

Grade: F

Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler defeated Damien Sandow and Curtis Axel. The faces pick up the victory because they need it more. Langston cannot suffer a loss right after winning the title. The rematch with Axel is on Sunday and will be a predictable, yet entertaining match. Langston has an incredible look and the strength to work with anyone. I love the fact that his speed in the ring is shockingly fast. The pace picked up when he clotheslined Sandow and took out Axel. Langston hit the Big Ending for the win on Sandow. Preserve the pinfall over Axel for Sunday. It is logical and was the right call. Side Note: How shameful is it that Survivor Series does not include Sandow and Ziggler somehow?

Grade: B
