Oh, and that viewership is HIGHER than the viewership The Rock's return brought to Smackdown.

This is just hilarious and awesome at the same time.

Smackdown started off with Big Show coming to the ring. Huge pop for him. He definitely has a scowl due to recent developments. Show asked if the fans think it is funny he's been messed with by Alberto Del Rio and the fans went nuts. Show said Del Rio never pinned him, and that he doesn't have what it takes to pin him. He also claimed he will never be pinned by Del Rio.

Chris Jericho interrupted. Jericho said he's known Show for 16 years and can read him like a "big, stinky book." He says he knows how Show feels. Show said if he really knew he would stay far away from him. Show said Jericho has other stuff to do. Jericho promoted Robot Fighting League. Jericho said he's back and pumped.

Jericho brought up being tag champs with Show and put him over before reminding him of his own accolades. Jericho brought up the idea that Show and he could wrestle for the title at WrestleMania. Show said if they both make it to WrestleMania, it will be Jericho's last. Booker T came out to a huge ovation! Booker announced Show vs Jericho for later in the show.

Randy Orton and Mark Henry had a backstage segment before the match. Just a simple stare down. The Rock was promoted for later and the place went insane!


1. Mark Henry beat Randy Orton by DQ.
Orton had the advantage early on, leaving Henry on the floor momentarily. No sooner than he reentered the ring, Henry took control. Henry dominated the bulk of the match and was having his way with Orton. It was time for Orton to come back and Henry went down. Orton grabbed a chair and hit Henry with it for the DQ. Orton hit him a few more times but eventually ate a World's Strongest Slam.


2. Tamina Snuka defeated Layla.
Snuka showed her heel tendencies early and Layla played goody two shoes. There was a roll up sequence ending in a cross body. Layla showed some skills here. There was also a really nasty bump on the apron with Snuka getting Layla trapped. Lots of miscommunication here. Snuka hit a nice Samoan drop and followed up with a splash for the win.


3. Brodus Clay and Tensai defeated 3MB.
First off, huge pop for Brodus. Simple comedy match with big pops for Tensai's dancing. Mahal nearly died when he didn't jump for a Brodus T-bone suplex. A double choke drop followed by a splash put 3MB away.

Following the match, The Shield attacked Brodus and Tensai. Amazing buzz for The Shield, goosebumps status. The fans crapped on The Shield. Dean Ambrose took the mic. He said don't dare think Sunday will be different from tonight. Incredible facial expressions from Ambrose. He said Cena and company will find out what the consequences for their actions will be on Sunday. They left through the crowd just as they arrived.

Cody Rhodes and his glorious moustache are out next followed by yet another ad for Fandango.


4. The Miz defeated Cody Rhodes.
The Miz came out and has his shoulder taped up from the Cesaro beatdown on Raw. Back and forth action to start including some pretty smart moves by Cody to attack the Miz's hurt shoulder. Miz reversed a disaster kick into a figure four, but at least he learned how to do it properly for this one. Cody tapped out surprisingly and nobody popped for the finish because Miz has not established the move as an actual finisher.


5. Jack Swagger beat Zack Ryder.
Ryder went after Swagger early but was dominated by Swagger's wrestling. Simple match with Swagger taking control for the majority of it. Ryder mounted a comeback but was swerved during a Broski boot and his leg was slammed into the post. A chop block and Swagger looked really creepy stalking Ryder. The finish comes with the Patriot Act.

Afterward, Swagger took the mic and introduced Zeb Colter, saying he's a great American. Zeb talked about making your mark as a patriot and his tea party-like spiel about how Zack Ryder is not a real American due to his love of tanning and hair products. Good heat on this promo.

The Rock headed to the ring to easily pop of the night with surely no rivals. Rock immediately went into C.M. Punk stealing the belt. Rock said it is a trade between his belt and an ass whipping Punk will never forget.

C.M. Punk and Paul Heyman interrupted on the big screen to let Rock know that he didn't steal anything and that it is The Rock who committed grand larceny at the Royal Rumble. Punk plays up the stipulation by saying that he plans on letting Rock beat himself on Sunday. Rock said his words are worthless. He said Monday is what Punk should worry about because then he'll realize he failed. Rock called Punk a spoiled little boy about eight times and delivered the "If you smell..." line deliberately and without any hype to close out their segment.

Sandow interrupted Rock. He said he finds it ironic that Smackdown is in Little Rock because he'll show everyone how little Rock has done since being WWE Champion. Huge heat on Sandow. Rock went into schtick about being in Little Rock and the people popped again. Sandow said they are sheep. Rock said he has one thing to say and goes into his "Finally, The Rock has come back to Little Rock." Rock played to the crowd and says he'd give Sandow a gift. He asked the crowd what move he should do to Sandow. Everyone said a Rock Bottom and Rock shook Sandow's hand into a Rock Bottom and a People's Elbow for a big response.


6. Big Show beat Chris Jericho.
Show dominated early. Jericho got some momentum only to be speared for his trouble for a two count. Show chokeslammed Jericho, who rolled out of the ring to avoid being pinned. Shows climbed to the the middle rope and missed an elbow drop. By the way, Brad would like everyone to know that the drunk guy behind him were f---ing annoying. Anyway, Jericho went for the Walls of Jericho, but he couldn't lock it in. Show delivered a knockout punch and got the win. Del Rio walked onto the ramp and had a staredown with Show, which is probably where the television show will end.

Sandow part sounds funny, but seems like a skip show.

It sounds like they toned down the totally racist tone w/ Swagger & Zeb by picking on Ryder and his style choices, which is better then what was said on Raw. They can make it work but they need to watch the tone and the wording because I was not impressed with Zeb's bit on Raw but if they can make it not seem so completely racist to visible minorities I will be fine with it. Shame Swagger has zero charisma or mic skills because given his size and wrestling background he could have been a pretty decent star by now.

Good plan WWE. Break up an entertaining tag team in Rhodes Scholars, have them job.

I just don't get this. They easily could have won the belts and avoided the breakup but if you do break them up why do it just to make them jobbers? They ate both far better than the Miz yet miz is the one getting the push.

I think they need more "bookers" as writers as opposed to drama series writing. Booking is a lost art because, technically, it doesn't exist for wrestling anymore. To properly set up the mid card, lower card, tag teams, divas, etc... it takes more work as they have less time to get their message across.

That's why I don't blame talent. We actually don't know what we have. If they aren't in the main event - it's as if they don't matter. That's not wrestling. Someone like Jericho, HBK, etc. all got over way before entering main event status.

And to that point, that's why stables are important. Sometimes an easy way to book a "meaningful" match is to have two stables go at one another. It's simple and people buy it.

It's obvious the Colter thing is leading to a Swagger/ADR angle. He'll get built up and probably feud with ADR post-Mania in a non-title program.

This! Not only does it make for a meaningful, entertaining and believed angle, but it also enables management to use MULTIPLE workers at once. That way, you can give MORE people TV time without taking time away from the main storylines. Stables are great, there should be more of them.

If it's built for Mania.. it won't make too much sense. We are in New York City.... aka New Jersey. If it was like Texas, then that angle would go over HUUUGE. But writing should take location into account here.

Some believe Swagger might actually win the chamber, but it's probably Henry who will win. I can see Jericho getting screwed by Ziggler leading to Ziggler/Jericho and Henry/ADR as the top SD matches. Put Swagger against someone else to continue building the angle and then have it lead to Swagger/ADR in the summer. SummerSlam is in Los Angeles, so it would go great for that event.

Not saying Swagger's gimmick won't get over, but it's Smackdown. You can't believe any of the crowd reactions.

Spoilers say they got good heat, but yeah, I don't trust Smackdown and those pops. Raw is really the only good place to judge this stuff.

Zeb Coltor said Barrett was apart of the problem tonight at the Smackdown tapings. That's excellent.

He also said he hopes Barrett and Del Rio kill each other (they wrestled in the main event)

The pumped in cheering for Miz was embarrassing. Very few are about him, they need drop him off the radar for a while and have him return after they repackage him. What they have him doing now isn't working and he doesn't understand how to properly use this character anyways.

He probably hasn't practiced it much since his reality tv show days.

The WWE needs to really build the tag team division with some of the guys out there in "no mans land" and Miz would be one of their top faces to give a boost because I do not see any way that this character gets over even if they are hinting at him winning a title soon.
