Harrak’s Quick Quips: WWE SmackDown 4.6.12 (Sheamus, Daniel Bryan, Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton)
by Matthew Harrak on April 7, 2012



– I’m hoping for a strong SmackDown after the lackluster showing SmackDown had at WrestleMania.

– That might have been the biggest pop Teddy’s ever received.

– Why does this whole angle really need to continue? A WrestleMania ending would have been perfectly fitting.

– I’m excited for this handicap match… as long as it leads to a R-Truth injury angle.

– Damn.

– Jumping right to Kane vs Orton. Their match at WrestleMania wasn’t terrible but I really didn’t need a rematch. Especially one so soon.

– For a guy who is consistently a top merchandise seller, been with the company for almost 10 years & a certified main eventer, Randy Orton has really fallen to the wayside in the last 6 months.

– I’m surprised they haven’t even mentioned that SmackDown has a new World Champion yet.

– When does Randy Orton go after this feud with Kane? Does he elevate Cody Rhodes? Or does battle for #1 Contendership with Daniel Bryan?

– 1 to 1. So Orton vs Kane at Extreme Rules. Cage? TLC? Inferno?

– Like Ryback’s new gear but holy Goldberg imperssation. Least he has more going for him than Mason Ryan.

– I’ve been looking forward to this promo all week.

– I still cannot fathom how AJ can be 25 years old.

– Not since Randy Orton or Steve Austin have I seen someone get over so well as a heel that he’s becoming a babyface.

– One of the better wrestling relationship breakups. The only problem is that I don’t think that AJ is over enough to garner sympathy and therefore parlaying heat onto Bryan.

– Big Show as IC champion is just weird.

– That was a great Jericho/Punk angle that just got lost in the Brock Lesnar shuffle.

– What did Beth Phoenix do to deserve all of this?

– Nice video for the late Strongbow.

– Damien Sandow: the 2012 version of the 1994 version of Bob Backlund.

– That belt looks like it was designed for Sheamus.

– A World Champion with anger issues? Been done but not as a babyface. I like Sheamus as champion and I like the range of heels he has lined up for him… except for maybe Del Rio. He’s not awful, I’m just tired of his act I think.

– On a whole, I liked the show and the two “debuts” worked well. These are the types of things I like seeing after a WrestleMania. Start your new “season” and let’s see some fresh faces and matchups.

    well I’ll be… I thought he was just gonna be all verbal abuse to AJ, not flat out end it with them.. So much for that dynamic. Unless she tries doing all kinds of crazy shit to “prove her love”.. That would go a long way to having him just seen as a total dick..
