SmackDown Review, 5/1

The WWE Title match on Sunday is now DQ. You know what that means: nut shots galore!

MIZ TV W/JEFF HARDY & RANDY ORTON
Miz can always generate a lot of heat with the crowd and other wrestlers. I’ll be shocked if by the time it gets back from commercial we don’t have Jeff & Randy vs. Miz & Benjamin.

JEFF & RANDY VS. MIZ & BENJAMIN
Didn’t need to be Teddy Long to call that one. Once again, the Montreal crowd is more interested in trying to get themselves over than the match itself. Someone actually held up a sign that said “Montreal is awesome.” Go home. Is Jeff’s serpent tattoo up his side new? That looks amazing. Double dose of RKOs tonight. Had to expect that Jeff would get one eventually. Good match, Miz got a lot more heat than I thought he would.

God help me, I’m starting to appreciate the Iconics as heels. The New Day is obnoxious.

Did Lana drop her accent in that backstage segment? I’m pretty certain she did.

BIG CASS PROMO
WWE sure seems to use midgets a lot to make fun of guys. I’m pretty sure Cass murdered the poor guy with that boot. He’s got the makings of a top heel.

A.J. STYLES INTERVIEW
The crowd tries to continue to chant AJ’s name over the interview even though they couldn’t get it right the first 15 times. Why did Samoa Joe interrupt AJ to cut a promo on Roman Reigns? Who had 9:06 for the Nakamura nut shot? Come claim your prize at the door. Also, these guys can go through tables and take chair shots and recover right away, but AJ takes a nut shot and can’t defend himself for 2-3 minutes, just letting Shinsuke knee him in the face? Makes sense.

Asuka’s English is definitely better. She can be really entertaining.

XAVIER WOODS VS. SHEAMUS
I don’t think I’ve truly realized what an impressive wrestler Xavier Woods is. He could probably hold his own on 205 Live. In fact, let’s dismantle the New Day forever and make that happen. Even if he doesn’t end up on 205 Live, let’s just dismantle the New Day. Forever.

Absolution is dead. Cien is coming.

CHARLOTTE, BECKY LYNCH, & ASUKA VS. CARMELLA & THE ICONICS
Carmella has perfected her chicken-shit heel persona against Charlotte. Running away when Charlotte is on the attack, tagging herself in when Charlotte is down, it makes the crowd go nuts when Charlotte finally gets her hands on her. She makes you want to see her get her face kicked in, which is what a good heel is supposed to do. Everyone was really good in this match, made for a great main event.

Again, fuck Montreal.
