TRIU Friday Night Smackdown Review(11/1/13)

Match #1 (Tag Team): © The Shield vs. The USO’s (Winner: The USO’s via PF, Rating: 2.5 of 4): This match was a pretty good tag match. The one thing I can take away from this match is the fact that Rollins and Ambrose are not as strong of a Tag Team as Reigns and Rollins. None the less the match stayed interesting and even saw Big E make his way down to the ring and end up facing off with Reigns to close out the match…

In Ring Segment #1: World Heavyweight Champion John Cena comes out to celebrate his victory at the last PPV and on RAW. He is then interrupted by the Real Americans, who offer him a spot with the group. Cena declines and cuts a promo on Swagger, Cesaro and Colture. They are then joined by Damien Sandow who claims he will end the Cena era in the WWE. Cena is cornered until the WWE Tag Champs make the save. This brings out Viki Guerrero who makes a 6-Man Tag Main Event (Real Americans, Sandow vs. Cena, Cody R, Golddust)…

Match #2 (Tag Team): Prime Time Players vs. The Wyatt Family (Winner: The Wyatts, Rating: 3.0 of 4): This was a match in which the PTP’s gave it all they could but just like most of the Wyatts matches this was a squash match that saw Brey Wyatt come in the ring post match and finish off the PTP’s. The dominance of the Wyatts is really starting to show…

In Ring Segment #2: Miz TV opens and the Miz is in ring complaining about the events of Hell in a Cell. He is then joined by WWE Champ Randy Orton. Orton whines about all he has done and then proceeds to drop Miz with a RKO and leaves him in the ring…

Match #3 (6-Diva Tag Team): Bella Twins, Natalya vs. Tamina, © AJ Lee, Alicia Fox (Winner: Natalya, Bella Twins via Sub, Rating: 3.0 of 4): This was a typical Divas match as it moved at a slow pace and had a lot of sloppy wrestling. But it ended as expected with Natalya tapping out the champ to earn herself a title shot down the road….

Match #4 (6-Man Tag Team)(Main Event): © Cena, © Cody Rhodes, © Goldust vs. Sandow, Real Americans (Winner: Cena, Rhodes Bros via PF, Rating: 3.5 of 4): This match was the culmination of the entire week for Cena as they Tag Champs and Cena put on one hell of a match with Sandow and the Real Americans and it let the crowd go home happy as the Faces stand tall in the ring…

Overall: It was a good Smackdown overall with a lot of focus on in ring action with only 2 I believe backstage segments. It was a little heavy on the RAW recap video spots. But overall a good job of balancing storytelling and action in the show…

Match of the Night: (6MT)(ME): © Cena,© Rhodes Bros victory over Sandow, Real Americans…
