I kind of expected worse given it was a Christmas special so it didn't end up being as bad as expected. I enjoyed the main event although have the same gripes others had with the sudden end and Henry winning. It was really good to see Daniel Bryan getting a lot of support. I have to say I really dig the guy on the mic as well, feel like when he's in the right mood he can cut a really good promo. I like how they make out Bryan is a pimp as well, so far he's pulled Gail Kim which made the Bella's jealous, and now he's sleeping around with AJ with his castaway beard.
The opening promo with Rhodes was entertaining, and I agree the match between him and Booker shouldn't have been plugged but I would rather they furthered that feud and have a match at a PPV then have one on this Smackdown, otherwise it could have easily ended the feud and given Rhodes nothing at TLC.
Tyson Kidd and Kofi had a good match but could have done with more time, the end was pretty awesome as well. I really wish they'd push Tyson Kidd, the guy has so much more potential then a lot of the crap they push, and like McIntyre, he's just dead weight on the roster
Orton decking in Otunga was entertaining and all the cookie stuff etc was funny, found Cole's reactions funny, but I agree whats with the sudden WWE love for Otunga, he has a terrible gimmick, he has that ridiculous bowtie, and seems to be green in the ring (although he seemed to have his best match here).
Aside from these moments, which were alright, the rest of the show was crap. The backstage party stuff was terrible, I don't know why they always do those things as they always seem awkward and forced, the divas match was terrible, I think it lasted about 20 seconds what an absolute joke, Ted DiBiase and Jinder Mahal feud, why is this even happening? We've got someone who is on par with Otunga for the worst gimmick going with a guy the WWE dropped the ball on about 6 months ago who didn't even get a win. In fact I don't think either of them have had a win or serious push in a long time. The moustache looks ridiculous and paedophilic and the DiBiase posse would be lucky to have Butters as a member, yet we are given a DiBiase push because his daddy is probably sucking off Vince McMahon behind Linda's back, its a shame the spunk landed on Dusty Rhodes head and has scarred him for life. And with the DiBiase push, we have guys like Kidd, McIntyre or even Swagger who could use that TV time to better effect and build on their characters who at least who could stand a chance and get a reaction. Mind you, I will say it gives Michael Cole a chance to say some hilarious things.
This wasn't the worst thing though, the end of the battle royal was terrible. I didn't even care about Hornswoggle coming in at the end, I expected it, what I did have a problem with was how much they dragged it out, literally just went on forever for something so petty, the crowd didn't give a shit come the end and I didn't give a shit. It was just the same lame jokes that have been done over and over again. Quite frankly I think Hornswoggle is a cunt and should have been exiled to Josef Fritzl's basement for a good fuck up the arse by the Fritz. I'd love to see a Mark Jindrak return or David Arquette surprise entrance, but noooooooooooooooooooooo we get Hornswoggle instead.
