The Main Event
The Uso's defeated The Wyatt Family
I really enjoyed that WWE gave the tag team champions the main event billing on the show. We always see Cena/Bray or Batista/Shield on this spot, but this is a refreshing change. The pacing of the match benefitted all members except Rowan. Rowan will always be a slow brawler, one who focuses on one area and exposes it. That is actually good for him tonight, as we see everyone else pick up the speed and intensity. Harper could be the best big man, in terms of athleticism, in quite some time. The Uso's hit their usual offense and then Bray throws Jey off the ropes before he can hit his splash.
This prompts the DQ and John Cena gets in the ring and hits an AA onto Rowan. Bray Wyat escapes and then teases an altercation in the ring. I have a few thoughts about this:
Why wouldn't John Cena immediately go after Bray, who caused the DQ? He is the one who got involved. Also, I love Bray Wyatt and loved how he spoke in Latin earlier in the night, but the singing is starting to get repetitive and not creative anymore. His character is going to change and evolve every few weeks. Keep the song, but add a new dimension to it.
Lastly, Bray Wyatt is a guy who should not run away from a fight. He should be the guy that starts it. Yes, heels are booked as cowards. Bray Wyatt is not your typical heel, so quit booking him like he is.
WWE Smackdown Score: 6/10
