Daniel Bryan defeated Jack Swagger to kick off Smackdown. This was a solid match that continues to show you why Bryan is so over. I love the pairing between him and Swagger, two technicians in the ring with different attacking styles. Swagger is such an underrated wrestler when it comes to execution. He rarely misses a beat and is a fast enough guy to work an exciting match with Bryan. Bryan hits his running knee for the win. After the match, Kane and Vickie Guerrero come out and make Bryan vs. Cesaro next.
Daniel Bryan defeated Cesaro via disqualification. The great bout between Cesaro and Bryan ends when Kane comes in and chokeslams Bryan. It seems like WWE wants to repeat the same match outcome for weeks until we complain more and more about it. Is Kane vs. Bryan what WWE should be focusing on right now? I am sick of corporate Kane and think he is being completely wasted right now.The best part of this match was after it was over and Cesaro hit a Neutralizer for good measure. WWE should focus more on the opponents in the Pay-Per-View over a 7 foot stooge in a suit.
Dolph Ziggler defeated Titus O'Neil thanks to a distraction from Darren Young at the announce table. Ziggler is able to roll him up for the win. The match was very bland and could have went on much longer. Ziggler took a beating and stole a win. He is better than this.
Jimmy Uso defeated Road Dogg in a quick match. Road Dogg sets up a pump handle slam, but Jimmy flies over and hits a superkick for the win. This tells me that The Uso's will NOT win on Sunday. Does anyone care to see the New Age Outlaws in singles action? I really do not. The feud is very vanilla and, although the match will be fun, they needed to find some sort of personal connection to make this feud more interesting.
–Emma can sure fill out tight black pants. Summer Rae is still the overall "hotter" one. Emma looks like she is attainable, which is going to make her perfect with the WWE Universe. Santino and her need to split apart sooner than later, so we can actually see her wrestle.
