Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction “Why Titus Could Be A Big Deal”

The Undercard

wwe smackdown reactionAntonio Cesaro defeated Dolph Ziggler to qualify for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber match. I really liked this match for a few reasons. Cesaro and Ziggler are polar opposites inside the ring. One relies on his power, while the other one is purely speed and athleticism. Cesaro and Ziggler worked an excellent match, where Ziggler was able to hit a few DDT's to get his offense going. It would be slowed down by the strength of Cesaro. Cesaro works in the match because he will be used to get a few hard moves in and be the first eliminated. Ziggler isn't taken seriously and everyone would know what they are going to get with him.

Score: 7.5/10

Fandango defeated Xavier Woods in singles action. I do not understand why we are continuing to see these guys face off, with the addition of R-Truth. There is no connection between the two and both guys need to be doing something else. Why are they getting so much television time week after week?

Score: 3.5/10

Titus O'Neil Turns on Darren Young

Finally. That is all I should say about this, but I can go on and on about the potential of Titus. He has come so far in his career in WWE. He is in his mid 30's, but that seems so young these days. Titus did all he could with Darren Young and now needs to become a heel that is pushed hard. Titus vs. Big E Langston could have potential in the mid card. Both guys are strong, but strong in many different ways. One is an athletic football body, while the other benches out of this world and trains for purely strength. I am really excited to see what kind of plans WWE has for Titus and think this was a GREAT call.

Score: 7/10

Christian defeated Jack Swagger to qualify for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber Match. It is nice to see Christian back in a WWE ring. He has done so much in his career and can still benefit to the younger guys in the company. You can tell that he loves to perform and will continue to be used in a mid card role. His addition into the main event at Elimination Chamber match will be used for a few spots and the fact that he been a world champion before. The match with Swagger worked, but was just an average match. Christian, upon his return, needs to add a few new moves to his arsenal. This is pivotal so he remains fresh and not repetitive.

Score: 5/10

Kofi Kingston defeated Damien Sandow in a boring match. I really had no desire to watch this because of the lack of intrigue from either guy. Honestly, Sandow deserves much better. Why can't we find a feud for these guys? With so much talent on the roster, create a new story for two guys that desperately need a change. 

Score: 4/10
