make that TWO WMDs. Got to be a record or something. He completely buried Big Show's finishing move.
I wouldn't say so. It's a LMS match, who wins with just their finisher? They've pretty much always pulled out a big spot for the end of those matches, because in kayfabe keeping someone down for a 10 count is a lot different to a 3 count. It would show that they're not actually knocked unconscious, I guess, but with the suspension of disbelief involved in wrestling, I'm sure that won't be the end of the move.
Sounds like a kick-ass Smackdown. Was hoping for a Sandow/Rock showdown somewhere down the road and we got it. Having Cody there as well is just icing on the cake. World title match also sounds intriguing. Was definitely not expecting a title change, but I've liked Del Rio as a face so far, so I'll give it a chance. Rest of the show sounds alright.
In all honesty, I am much happier with del Rio as champion than Big Show.
No idea why this wasn't live though when The Rock was on the show AND the shows main title changed hands.
I'd imagine the answer is as simple as WWE didn't have a plan until very late on. I mean this ADR thing has come by quickly and Rock has only recently returned. Could be that simple really. I actually haven't been watching lately but this sounds like a must see show (looks well booked enough), which I'm happy to say for Smackdown.
Also, in 2012 a lot of WWE's live Smackdown's flopped because their advertising was no good. Now they're going the 'That's gonna put some butts in the seats' route i.e. spoiling a major event (ADR winning the world title) hoping that it actually draws in viewers. Also, The Rock being on Smackdown, advertising it for longer could also result in more viewers. So overall it's probably better for SD to be on Friday this week imo.
I just hope they don't dub the crowd because Miami crowds have done us proud recently.
I assume the delrio win means that Zigglers cashing in after the show delrio rematch or royal rumble at the latest
He'll definitely cash in soon, though with Ziggler in the Royal Rumble (apparently to stop Cena winning) they'll have to address that. But yeah, safe to assume Ziggler as World Heavyweight Champion is incoming...
