Smackdown 10-21-11

The great thing about the WWE being in Mexico is that I can justify being sarcastic in two languages! Onto the Matches:

1. Mark Henry v. John Morrison - 3 out of 5. I think a lot of people complained about the end, but it was consistent for Henry's character. This would be a terrible time to lose steam.
2. Wade Barret v. Daniel Bryan - 3 out of 5.
3. Sheamus and Zack Ryder v. Christian and Dolph Ziggler - 3 out of 5.
4. Sin Cara v. Sin Cara - 4 out of 5. This was better than I expected, but I do have my reservations.
5. Big Show v. Alberto Del Rio - 3 out of 5. Decent, but meh.

It has been officially announced that Ziggler and Swagger will be challenging Air Boom for the tag team championship. Unfortunately for Dolph Ziggler and Vickie, Teddy Long also set a US Championship match against Zack Ryder to occur after the tag match. This is good news for Ryder and his fans, however, as it is chance to prove to the non-believers that he is ready for the regular midcard.

Cody Rhodes continued to be amazing this week, delivering a monologue in which he discussed the evil in man, and demanding for Orton to admit that he was wrong to look down on him. He name-dropped his father, and I felt it was the perfect opportunity to start calling himself the American Nightmare, but alas, that did not happen. Orton ended up taking out Cody's baggers in the end. This should be an interesting match tomorrow.

Sin Cara v. Sin Cara. Mask v. Mask. Of course this story was leading up to this, but why now? This story should have had months of build-up before they reached this point. As it is, this is only the second time they've faced off in the ring (no pun intended). Perhaps it was because they were in Mexico, to make the de-masking that much more intense. After all, they take those masks pretty seriously there. It just ended up feeling like a quick squash to a feud that was starting to have a lot of potential. And especially after the way the two Caras performed. The other problem is that Azul, the one who supposedly stole Negro's identity not once, but twice, came out on top. He's gonna get away with identity theft. The only way to resolve this story botch is for Heel Cara to de-mask Face Cara as well, and put them both back on an even playing field. Then there could be some serious heat between the two men, they could quit with the ridiculous mood lighting, and maybe without the masks to hinder their vision, the quality of both men's performances could improve.

Well, a girl can dream, can't she?
