TRIU Friday Night Smackdown (11/8/13)

In-Ring Segment #1: CM Punk comes to the ring to cut a promo on the Wyatt family and their attack on him on Monday night. While calling out the Wyatts Punk draws out IC Champ Curtis Axel who is looking to settle a score for Heyman. Axel says he asked for and received a match against Punk right now!!!

Match #1 (Singles Match): CM Punk vs. © Curtis Axel (Winner: CM Punk via PF, Rating: 3.0 of 4): This wasa pretty good match well wrestled by both superstars. There was a attempt made by the Wyatts to distract Punk but Punk regained composure after the distraction and hit the GTS for the win over the IC Champ Axel. Overall in ring action saved this match…

Match #2 (6-Man Tag Match): 3MB vs. R-Truth/USO’s (Winner: R-Truth/USO’s via PF, Rating: 3.0 of 4): This match was a nice home town match for Truth being they were in N.Carolina. The match had a lot of great spots and had a solid finish. Overall it was a fun match to watch and the crowd was into it!!...

Match #3 (Diva’s Tag Match): The Funkadactyls vs. ©AJ Lee/Tamina (Winner: © AJ Lee/Tamina via Sub, Rating: 3.0 of 4): I will say this…this match was one of themost physical Diva’s match that I have seen in a very long time. Overall the Dactyls put up a good fight but Tamina is too much for most of the Diva’s in the WWE…

In-Ring Segment #2: Alberto Del Rio comes down to the ring to cut a promo about his upcoming match with John Cena. He proceeded to give a bunch of excuses as to why he lost at HIAC and insults the lifeless crowd at the same time. John Cena then interrupts to bring some life to the crowd!! Cena cuts a funny promo and then proposes a rematch for the title on SD tonight!! Del Rio accepts!!! Viki comes out and announces the rematch will take place at Survivor Series and not tonight. Then Viki announces Cena vs. Ryback for later and Del Rio vs. Khali now!!!....

Match #4 (Singles Match): Alberto Del Rio vs. The Great Khali (Winner: Del Rio via Sub, Rating: 2.5 of 4): The match ended pretty much as everyone thought that it would. Del Rio looked bad mainly because the crowd in no way responds to him not with boos or cheers. Overall good match with no crowd response,,,

Match #5 (Singles Match): Daniel Bryan vs. Luke Harper (Winner: Bryan via DQ, Rating: 3.0 of 4): The match was pretty good and was going Bryans way until Erick Rowand interfered and cost Harper the match. As the Wyatts were about to dismantle Bryan, Punk makes the save and ran off the Wyatts. Overall great match with a bogus ending…

Match #6 (Singles Match): © John Cena vs. Ryback (Winner: © Cena via PF,Rating: 3.5 of 4): The match wasa slow paced very grounded match. A match that saw Ryback gives it all he could. It just wasn’t enough to overcome Cena!! Del Rio attacks Cena after the match but gets run off when Cena turns the tables. Overall solid main event that saved a mediocre show…

Overall Rating (3.0 of 4): This Smackdown was a pretty good one filled with a lot of storyline and backstage segments with a couple of great in ring segments. It had a predictable ending but sometimes that’s not a bad thing…

Match of the Night: (SM) © Cena vs. Ryback (3.5 of 4)…
