I agree with you about it being a pretty decent SmackDown as I enjoyed it for the most part.
I love the whole Kendrick / Ezekiel relationship and is probably one of my favourite things happening in the E right now. Not sure what's destined for them, look's like the tag titles which isn't too bad.
The divas match was really good and it just shows you how much the WWE missed the ball with Victoria. She carried McCrap throughout the whole match, it was like seeing the Victoria of old which is sad considering it was her last match.
The Main Event, although very good, pissed me off a little. What is with having this over emphasis on trying to screw Triple H to the point where we see 2 Last Man Standing matches in consecutive weeks? I don't mind them throwing these hurdles at Triple H to overcome, but the fact is they are being overdone. Last week where he had to have 3 matches was just stupidly excessive and a LMS match against The Big Show should surely be a big enough hurdle, but he obviously didn't want to flat out lose, thus squashing 3 guys prior to it.
This week, his Royal Rumble spot is at stake, I have no problem with that so they put his fate in the hands of MVP against Big Show, again no problems there. But why oh why did they have to make it a frigging last man standing match again? MVP hadn't won in what, 5 months so surely facing Big Show in just a normal frigging match would have been suffice?
