I think it's a good decision for Bryan to announce his MITB cash in advance at Survivor Series. It's nice that he wants to do it the honourable way. Next couple of months will be good to build up him well, making him look credible. Nice interaction between Bryan and Miz, they have history and it would be good to see them battling it out at a ppv. Miz a former MITB winner against Bryan the current MITB holder.
Opening Match was good. A loss here doesn't hurt Bryan at all since he's the MITB briefcase holder. Miz caused Bryan to lose and Barrett takes advantage of this and picks up the win. Barrett will be a strong favourite to win the Summer Showcase but I still think Sheamus will win this.
Orton interview was good. He's getting another opportunity at the title and the RKO is definetely a move that can come out of nowhere. It's just like what Orton did to Christian in real life when Orton ended Christian's first world title reign. I'd actually like to see Christian beating Henry and then going on to defeat Orton at SummerSlam. Christian was booked horribly as world champion and I'd like to see him getting a good run here as champion. Work rate wise, we can see lots of potential great championship matches between Christian and Sheamus, Christian and Bryan. Bryan ending Christian's reign would be great. That's if Christian lasts that long as champion.
Gabriel vs Slater- battle between former Nexus members was good, nice fast paced action. Good decision to go with Gabriel winning, he's very underrated.
Kane vs Sheamus is a good brawl, surprised that they've never done this on ppv. I'm glad that Sheamus won this and I hope he wins the Summer Showcase. Will this lead to a face turn? I like him as a heel and as a face so we just have to wait and see what happens next with Sheamus.
Mark Henry's intense promo was good, I liked it better than Orton's. I wouldn't mind seeing Henry as champ but not yet. Would prefer a longer reign for Christian.
Dibiase vs Zeke match was the only disappointing match from the show. Barrett vs Zeke should be interesting next week.
Cody's promo was solid. Cody making a statement. It would be great if we see a champion vs champion match at NOC. What a surprise to have Jericho back. This was the segment of the night. Big moment to have him return and hit the codebreaker on Dibiase. Cody vs Jericho feud for the Intercontinental title would be great. The promos they would have would be awesome.
Main event was the match of the night. Christian looking on from ringside. Orton and Henry beating the hell out of each other until Christian sneaks in and blasts Orton with the world title belt. Christian then outsmarts Henry and knocks Orton out. Christian standing tall at the end was a nice moment.
Teddy Long's announcement was good, I prefer a triple threat but you're going with a different route with two world heavyweight title matches in one night. Should be interesting. A win for Christian over Henry and Orton would do wonders for Christian. SummerSlam is looking good. I'd like to see Bryan vs The Miz at SummerSlam. Overall good Smackdown, good action, good promos. Jericho's return was my favourite part of the show. Now bring on the battle royal for Raw. I actually want Triple H or Mysterio to win the battle royal.
