WWE Smackdown 7/20/2012

We begin the show with Rey Mysterio returning. It's been over 15 months but it really doesn't feel that long. Wasn't he back at Mania?

ADR came out and gave Rey a chance to leave, but Rey didn't.

Dolph Ziggler then came out to talk to ADR. Him and ADR were going to gang up on Rey until Sheamus made the save. They tried to get something going but ADR left and Dolph got out of there before he took too big of a beating.

Match Number One: The Prime Time Players, Hunico & Camacho w/ AW Vs. Epico, Primo. Kofi & R-Truth, 8 Man Tag Match.
I feel bad for Primo and Epico because you can tell it's only about Rosa and nothing else. They mic'd AW which was cool because you could hear what he was saying. They did this on a Coliseum Video many years ago and I loved it then. AW called Kofi "Dreadlocks" and told him "You know what time it is". AW distracted Primo and O'Neil pushed him off the ropes into a ddt/codebreaker thing for the win. Good match. Rating: *1/2

Show came out and cleared house.

Match Number Two: Damien Sandow Vs. Zack Ryder.
Sandow wore really bright Pink and took out Zack quickly with a cross-armed neckbreaker. Sandow's music played after with"Hallelujah" playing. Rating: No Rating

Peep Show with AJ and Daniel Bryan
This was just Christian questioning the two which led to

Match Number Three: Daniel Bryan vs Kane
This was actually a decent match. AJ got involved and jumped on Kane as he did a chokeslam to DB. AJ and Kane ended up staring each other down and then DB took her to the back with him. No finish here.

Match Number Four: Heath Slater vs Road Warrior Animal
They showed clips of Slater getting beat up by legends. Animal made quick work of him with a powerslam and an elbow.

Ricardo and Vickie yelled at each other backstage. Then Vickie started screaming.

Match Number Five: Alberto Del Rio & Dolph Ziggler w/ Ricardo & Vickie Vs. Sheamus & Rey Mysterio.
Vickie cut off Ricardo's intro. That should be a punishable offense. Rey wore a plain shirt with a question mark on it. Odd.  Ziggler had this won after a Rocker Dropper but the ref was paying attention to Sheamus. Dolph took some nice bumps in this as usual. The finish was so stupid. Ricardo held onto Sheamus' foot and that was it. Stupid. ADR put the armbar on Sheamus after. Dolph went to cash in but Rey stopped that.

Thoughts: This was a waste of time. Skip it!
