The Main Events
Batista's Heel Turn became official on Friday night. He starts the show, cutting a promo on not caring about anyone and what they cheer or boo to him. He talks about coming back just to win the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Batista takes a shot at the WWE locker room, asking where the real men are these days. Dolph Ziggler comes out and this sets up a match between the two for later in the night.
Batista defeated Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler gets some good offense in when he attacks the knee of Batista. He hits a Fameasser and gets a two count, so he sets up for a Zig Zag. Batista reverses it and hits three spinebusters. He finishes off Ziggler with a Batista Bomb for the win. This is the Batista that we need to see. Unfortunately, I understand why WWE is going to feed him guys like Ziggler. Ziggler sells great and can make Batista look unstoppable in the ring. The attitude and arrogance of Batista will make him a great heel again. He is getting the heat from the crowd and that is so natural. It may not be what WWE wants, but Batista is a guy that will get a reaction no matter what.
Daniel Bryan and The Uso's defeated The New Age Outlaws and Kane. The Uso's get their tag team offense going on Road Dogg. Jimmy tries to hit a superkick, but Road Dogg steps to the outside. We come back from commercial with Jey hitting a spinebuster onto Billy Gunn. Billy follows up with a tilt-a-whirl suplex. Kane gets into the ring and hits a big boot to the chest of Jey. Kane hits a few clotheslines into the corner and gets another two count.
Road Dogg gets in the ring and quick tags ensue with the heels. Kane hits a sidewalk slam on Jimmy Uso. Finally, Daniel Bryan gets the hot tag. He comes in and kicks Kane in the face. Bryan follows with kicks and punches to Gunn. He hits a running clothesline and unloads kicks to his chest. Road Dogg gets sent to the outside, as well as a dropkick to Gunn. Kane comes in the ring and tries to double chokeslam The Uso's. They hit a double superkick. Jimmy and Jey both hit moves to the outside. Bryan kicks out of the Fameasser and hits a running knee for the win.
The action certainly picked up at the very end. Good match to end Smackdown, but what is the level of importance? Does this give The Uso's a championship match? Will Bryan prove his worth by pinning Billy Gunn? Now is the time for WWE to build on their history with Triple H, Kane, Bryan and the Outlaws. Make it known who are the heels and how Daniel Bryan can get his match against Triple H.
WWE Smackdown Score: 6/10
