Smackdown 7/27/2012

Miz in-ring promo
He talked about being the new Intercontinental Champion and said he thanks the fans of Christian for voting for him on Raw to have an IC title match. Christian announced that he would use his rematch clause right now.

Intercontinental title - Miz vs Christian
Christian took a nasty backdrop to the outside. He did a belly flop on the floor. Miz won by pulling on the tights here after a thumb to the eye. This was actually a very good back and forth match. Miz was good here, better than usual. Rating: **3/4

Ryback vs Jinder Mahal
Jinder looks alot skinnier than he used to in FCW. Ryback was bouncing to his music and was talking to the cameras. Jinder wore some really cool purple/red tights that alternated colors. Jinder actually got a bit of offense on Ryback. Ryback powered out of a camel clutch and did a stunner while Jinder was hooked around his body. Mahal ran for it after a missed lariat from Ryback. Ryback won by countout. He then got the crowd to chant, "Feed Me More". Rating: **

Daniel Bryan and Sheamus were in the back. Sheamus was reminding him of all the bad stuff that happened this week to Bryan and he gave Bryan a delayed wedding present. It was a book entitled, "How to last more than 18 seconds" with Sheamus kicking Bryan from Wrestlemania.

Sheamus vs Cody Rhodes
Dolph came down during this with his entrance music and briefcase. He teased cashing it in. Cody did the most insane moonsault ever. He stood with his back facing the ring, completely blindsided and a did a Kurt Angle style moonsault right on the mat. He almost went head first. I don't know if they planned that or if Sheamus forgot to catch him or what but it looked scary. Cody hit a close springboard kick to the face but only got the 2. They showed Dolph getting ready to jump on in. Sheamus got the advantage and hit an Emerald Fusion. He beat his chest and the crowd clapped along, then he hit the Brogue Kick for the win. This was a good match and Cody was really on during it. Rating: **1/2. Ziggy teased cashing it in but walked back. Jericho threw him in and him and Sheamus hit their moves on Ziggy after.

Santino Marella vs Antonio Cesaro
They called Cesaro the "Swiss Superman". He went for a move and Santino hit a nice hip throw. Santino teased hitting Maxine with the Cobra but Cesaro caught him and hit him with the Karl Gotch-style Styles Clash/Flopping Pile Driver.

#1 Contender - Fatal Four Way - Daniel Bryan vs Kane vs Alberto Del Rio vs Rey Mysterio
Rey Rey and Bryan both hit cool dives to start it off. Daniel Bryan now chants "yes" when he kicks someone. Rey hit a splash and had the pin on DB but Ricardo pulled him out and Del Rio stole this one with a pin on Rey. This was a very good match. It was fast paced and they did some nice double teams and counters. It was also pretty hot heat wise for WWE standards. Totally reccomended. Rating: ***

Overall: This was a good show. There were alot of good matches with the main being really good. Definitely worth a watch!
