Unfortunately they spent 2 hours cutting NXT's balls off leading up to that match. A supposedly 'weakened' undertaker was beating them 5 on 1 until Kane helped, or did whatever was done when the lights were out. (That whole segment was just brutally bad).
I haven't watched smackdown in months, so it was good to see Punk, but damn that segment seemed to drag on forever. The part with the Austin music was great, though. Laughed my ass off.
I'm still trying to figure out what they're doing with Danielson. I mean, I know what they're doing, they're going to give him Miz's US title while Miz goes up to the main event, but beyond Summerslam, they haven't done much to build him as a challenger. You'd think they could let him not get outsmarted by Miz some week or another. The only time he's gotten any shots in on Miz was after Cena laid him out. He's still losing every match they put him, for whatever reason. Sometimes I wonder how fresh it might feel to bring back the idea of a badass shoot-style wrestler a la Benoit (yeah, yeah, I know...) or Malenko from the WCW days. Somebody who can overcome the size disadvantage that they seem to go out of their way to harp by just being nasty in the ring. But I know what the odds of that are.
The thing that stands out the most right now is just how little they actually have. You see Rock and Austin and Michaels and even HHH (who I wouldn't mind never seeing again, frankly...) and it's clear how none of the guys on the roster are really stars of any magnitude. Even Cena seemed second rate tonight. The way they've booked for the last few years has killed everything. Wins don't matter, booking is all even-steven (superCena excluded), and we're stuck with the same boring feuds over and over. The best guys (Jericho in particular) are never given real title pushes, they're treated like jokes and held just above the mid-card. Too much entertainment, not enough sports. Sigh.
