Title This: WWE Smackdown Reaction “Veterans Carry a Predictable, Average Show”

Josh Isenberg

Seth Rollins defeated Rob Van Dam 

smackdown reactionAnother match between Mr. Money in the Bank and a former briefcase holder in Rob Van Dam. RVD gets beaten down quickly with kicks and punches into the corner. RVD gets back and hits a spinning heel kick and misses a Rolling Thunder. RVD uses his strong legs and takes down Rollins. RVD misses a Five Star Frog Splash and Rollins hits a big kick to his skull. RVD and Rollins fight at the top of the ropes and Rollins flips over and tosses him into the turnbuckle with a powerbomb. Rollins hits a Curb Stomp for the win.

This was a good match, but nothing spectacular. One RVD match is like another. There has not been much development in his in-ring set for years. Although he has not done anything different, he is still a true professional and can work with basically anyone on the roster. Seth Rollins picks up a win on Smackdown and continues to remind us why he grabbed the briefcase. His ring work is so smooth and has few flaws, if any.

Paige defeated Emma

Emma kicks Paige in the face, but Paige grabs her hair. Emma kicks Paige in the side of the head and heads up top. Paige is able to toss her from the top and locks in the PTO. Paige picks up a win and out comes AJ Lee. AJ says she admires her friends and loves them. She gives Paige a box of chocolates. She yells at her to eat one, which she does. She ends up spitting it out and leaves the ring. 

AJ Lee looks sad and the mind games continue. This really did not do much for me tonight. It was dragged out too much and really did not connect with the crowd whatsoever. How much more can they get out of this feud? They need to spice it up a bit and get more physical on a weekly basis. I wonder if another Diva can step up and challenge one of these ladies next. If not, we will have WWE milk this as much as possible.
