Sean Ross Sappdown: Smackdown Notes, Title Match, Return, More!

Opening segment

  • The Daniel Bryan - Miz non-wrestling rivalry is so fantastic. That is all.

Randy Orton defeated Luke Harper 

  • This was a damn good match with an interesting story.
  • This is one of the first times I've been interested in either competitor in a singles situation for a long time.
  • Wyatt preventing Harper from being counted out was good. He wants them to hash it out in the ring.
  • Randy Orton won with a nice RKO.
  • Wyatt lands a Sister Abigail on Harper. Wondering where this goes.

Mickie James is back!

  • Mickie is out with Renee Young and cuts a pretty good promo about how she felt like all her her accomplishments were negated by the "Divas Revolution."
  • She says Alexa has more respect for her than any of the other women.
  • Becky comes out, Alexa and Mickie jump her.
  • Mickie's delivery was FANTASTIC.

Shopping Spree!! 

  • I shouldn't have enjoyed this as much as I did. Sue me. Ellsworth and Carmella 4-life.

Mojo Rawley wins Royal Rumble Qualifying Battle Royal

  • Who did the Vaudevillains piss off? They've been jobbed out to an extreme degree.
  • Mojo Rawley was made to look really strong here. He eliminated practically everyone.
  • Sure, I mean, why not?

Cena and Styles!

  • These anti-Cena promos -- like the agenda -- were cool at first, and they're still passable, but don't have the same effect.
  • Styles got to use the main event curse word.
  • Cena is wack with this accent.
  • Cena says he wasn't built for the indy scene. Nothing wrong with that.
  • Cena pretty much shits all over AJ Styles.

Dolph Ziggler defeated Kalisto

  • David Otunga is the worst. I don't think it's his fault. It's the voice in his ear.
  • Ziggler hits a superkick to a springboarding Kalisto. Cool.

Naomi is back

  • Naomi is back, she was supposed to fight Natalya, but NIkki is shit kicking her backstage.
  • Naomi with a mic, that's gonna be bad. Alexa Bliss comes out, then backs down. I dunno.
  • What was the point?

Intercontinental Championship
Lumberjack Match
Dean Ambrose (c) defeated Miz (w/Maryse)

  • Another good match from the Miz. Shocker.
  • Dean Ambrose really excels in Lumberjack matches.
  • I thought Miz had it when Maryse held Ambrose's leg.
  • Miz did a fantastic Daniel Bryan running knee! Stole Bryan's corner dropkicks, too.
  • Ambrose wins after a good effort.
  • Okay Smackdown, nothing great.
