Smackdown! has become a show that you tune in to see Alberto Del Rio, solid wrestling, things said in Spanish and then said in English immediately after, and Edge and Kane running. If you can manage to tune out anything featuring Edge, Kane, Paul Bearer, and/or a dummy dressed up as Paul Bearer, you'll see a great wrestling show. Then, weeks from now when you see the PPV, you'll get a hilarious video package for the Edge vs. Kane match, featuring a bunch of hijinks and pranks that you can digest in a matter of seconds and be on your way. This is the best way to watch this show. Trust me.
Here's what's up for tonight that you can get buck for:
MAIN EVENT TAG TEAM MATCH
"The Rated R Superstar" Edge & Rey Mysterio
Alberto Del Rio & World Heavyweight Champion Kane
SINGLES MATCH? (I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO CALL IT)
Hornswoggle VS. The Swagger Soaring Eagle
Champion Dolph Ziggler
Challenger Kofi Kingston
Jack Swagger VS. Kaval
TAG TEAM MATCH
WWE Tag Team Champions Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov
Drew McIntyre & Chavo Guerrero
Unified Divas Champion Natalya VS. Layla
Drew McIntyre is a man with no allegiances! He will team with any man! So long as he doesn't point and smile on the way to the ring.
The wrestling should be great on this show. The Edge/Kane vignettes should be hilarious two weeks from now, but unbearable to sit through as they air. I wonder how the camera crew feels as they film them. Seriously. What would be even stranger is if this were real, and the camera crew (like think about it, a lighting guy, camera guy, sound guy, probably some kind of producer or director) were all standing there watching Edge blanket Paul Bearer in chicken wings, and just had to film it. And not do anything.
Thankfully, it's fake and they all just high five after they film it thinking it's a job well done.
