Today’s WWE Smack down took place at Giant Center – Hershey, Pennsylvania.
The show started with Teddy Long addressing the controversy regarding Capitol Punishment championship match and Christian again asking for a rematch. To get a chance, Christian was informed; he will have to defeat Kane in tonight’s main event.

Sincara vs. Ted DiBiase: The result was obvious from the start. Wasn’t it? Ted Dibiase against the High Flying Dare Devil! Sincara is one of the best athletes in WWE at present with some breathtaking high flying moves. He was able to outperform DiBiase with his agility. Sincara was wonderful; executing his moves to perfection and won an easy contest. It would really be an interesting match (next RAW episode) with Evan Bourne: two most agile and charismatic wrestlers up against each other.

Cody Rhodes and Daniel Bryan: It was retribution time for Cody Rhodes as he won in his match today against Daniel Bryan. Although he got lucky as Daniel Bryan leg got entangled in the rope while getting back into the ring after hitting Ted DiBiase (Codes former prodigy). Cody Rhodes took advantage of this situation and no wonder he was the winner. It was an average match with Ted DiBiase back in the camp of Cody Rhodes to revive his failing career.

Mark Henry:  We all saw what Mark Henry did to Big Show at Capitol Punishment and Kane at Power to People. It seems he was still not satisfied and hit Big Show again who was being interviewed at that time. I can see a potentially big rivalry growing up. I think the character they have built for R Truth in RAW; Mark Henry will be following on the same lines.

Ezekiel Jackson vs Wade Barrett: Even before the match started, while on his way, Jackson was attacked by Wade Barrett. But he lost the early advantage as Jackson regrouped himself and was back to his original self-form. As Wade tried for Wasteland, Jackson reversed the move and with torture rack, won the match thus successfully defending his title for the first time.

Randy Orton: In his interview, he said of Christian asking for a rematch as “Borderline Comical”. But even if Christian defeats Kane then, he will defeat him and the closest Christian will get to this title is when he will nail him with this again.
Backstage, Wade Barrett comes across Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel. They mocked him for losing to Jackson twice and said that they are going to go out there and do something he can’t – win.

Slater and Gabriel defeated The USO’s .Although I have to say the music and entry of USO’s was good but they could not repeat their performance again.

Jinder Mahal vs. Yoshi Tatsu- The match never happened as first Mahal and then Khali finished Tatsu. He said that Khali is done with kissing fat women and nothing can stop the eastern winds to reign the WWE world. And this domination will continue until his potential and superiority is recognized.

Kane vs. Christian: Kane was again a victim of Mark Henry’s wrath as he attacked him in between their match and thus Disqualification was called. So Teddy Long came and announced that Christian can redeem his championship opportunity by winning a tag team match against Kane and Randy Orton. Kane managed to lift Henry with one hand and slammed him down in the ring. Once Randy came in the ring, Christian intervened and managed to make Randy give him RKO. Unaware that Mark Henry had regrouped, Randy Orton was nailed with the World’s Strongest Slam and thus Henry/Christian won the tag team match. So again Christian got a chance to reclaim his title against Randy Orton.

Overall, an interesting 2 hours spent watching SmackDown. Don’t forget to see RAW on Monday with Shawn Michaels –The Showstopper.

Really, Really, Really!

FLASHBACK:
WrestleMania XXVII: The Rock & Stone Cold Steve Austin are called upon.
Over the Limit: Bret Hart is summoned
Capitol Punishment: Again Stone Cold
Next Week:  Shawn Michaels is back.

Isn't it looking like in every episode of WWE RAW there is almost one Hall of Famer being called upon to market their show? I just wonder!
On top of it, it was announced that CM Punk will be leaving WWE come 17th July.

Really Really Really!

There is a catch somewhere in this announcement or if it is true, I am sure WWE ratings will drop down considerably. The reason being simple:
There are only 3 Major Superstars present at this time in WWE which can carry the show singlehandedly on their shoulders: John CenaRandy Orton and CM Punk.

I have come from a time when I have seen superstars like Bret HartShawn Michaels, UndertakerStone Cold Steve AustinTriple HRock :STARS who carried WWE to a different level and made it a global phenomenon (and to think there were no Facebook, Twitter at that time!) . You  look at these Hall of Famers and realize that people were hell crazy about them, there were no trash talks, those were the times when historic rivalries were made (Bret Hart-Yokuzona, Undertaker –Mankind and so many others). The mere presence of one of these athletes in the arena made you feel overwhelmed.

Come today-you see around: You see stars like MizAlex Riley, Alberto Del Rio and so many others. These are good wrestlers but not someone who can meet the standards of their predecessors. They had charisma, authority, respect and fear in the eyes of their rivals as well as audience (If it was not the case, why would WWE keep on falling back to them to up their ratings? Interesting-Right)

Currently the only three players who I find even close to the Hall of Famers are: John Cena, Randy Orton and CM Punk.And to take away CM punk would be to deplete the already thin line of mega superstars, a disastrous move for WWE; something Vince McMahon will be fully aware of. In my opinion, it is just a story line being used to generate emotional interest amongst people. The message on twitter by Punk was the same he reported on live journal in 2005- when Ring of Honor was supposedly his last match and rest we all know is history.

CM Punk is amongst the most entertaining and charismatic personality in WWE. If he is allowed to leave, there will be only one superstar left in Raw and one in Smackdown. He has a big list of loyal followers (around 5 million followers on social media sites and so many others) and to lose them would be a huge business loss for WWE.

WWE cannot keep falling back on past Hall of famers to carry it around. They need superstars like Punk and rivalry like PUNK-CENA to go into history books. In my opinion :this is just a part of story line that writers have created and very soon who knows on 17th July or in Summer Slam- we might hear  “You have just been PUNKed”


(Disclaimer- These are my personal opinions and are not intended to hurt anyone's feelings. If you disagree, you are most welcome to discuss.)
