WWE Smackdown 8/31/2012 Review

WWE Smackdown 8/31/2012 Review

Sheamus came out to talk then Damien Sandow came out right after:
"Although there is nothing more I'd rather do than bash you in a debate of philosohpies, it would be a waste of time."
"No one wants to see an intellectual thrashing, but they do want to see a physical thrashing."
"For the first time on Smackdown, Damien Sandow vs Sheamus."

Rey Mysterio vs Cody Rhodes

Rey won here with a cradle off a missed 619. After the match, Sin Cara came down and put a mask on Rhodes. This match wasn't what it could have been. It was too short but it was fine for what it was. Loved Cody's Twister(spinning brainbuster). Rating:*1/2

Kaitlyn vs Natalya
"You gonna respect me?" - Natalya
Eve was on commentary and mentioned how the diva's division has came back since Booker came into charge. Maybe she's watching another show.

Kaitlyn won with a quick roll-up here. Oh well, if you can't be good, be short. Natalya must have yelled about RESPECT 5 times during this. I thought she was channeling Davey Richards.

Booker talked with Strike backstage and talked about how AJ has lost it. Then Vickie said she will take action if nothing is done soon.

Damien Sandow vs Sheamus

Sheamus won this when Sandow ran to the back. This one never picked up or really went anywhere. Not that interesting at all. Rating:1/2*

Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd vs The Prime Time Player's
"We're the only true WWE tag team since day one." - The Uso's via Tout

Alberto Del Rio came out to talk with Josh Matthews
"Listen you little naco. What Kane did to you is going to be nothing compared to what I'm going to do to you right now." - ADR
"Josh, I am sorry for throwing you at the wall at Summerslam. Thank you for playing a role in my recovery program." - Kane, apologizing for his actions
Teddy Long then came out and made:
Alberto Del Rio vs Kane

Ricardo distracted Kane and ADR came from behind for the win.
Kane then beat up Josh because he was angry. The crowd chanted, "Beat Up Cole".

I like this Kane storyline. This is a new storyline for Kane, which is hard to do after about 15 years of him in WWE. I also love the Josh Matthews abuse. They have to make sure that Kane only attacks Josh, to keep some of the humor and fun of it. All I can say is, WWE, keep doing what you are doung. You made me interested in Kane and I haven't cared about him in years.

Dolph Ziggler vs Randy Orton
Orton won here with a RKO. I wasn't really into this one. This was short and definitely skippable.

Overall thoughts: Not a really good show. There were way too many flashback's to HHH's speech and none of the matches got enough time. The highlight of this show was by far Kane's new storyline. They got me interested in that and now they have to keep me. This show is not recommended and definitely skip it.
