    @Devil Rising

    What the funk did you say?

  • Stevie P

    Cody Rhodes is your IC champion and you have him losing on TV…that makes total sense.

  • WeAreOne

    I don’t know why but I thought Gabriel would be in the chamber match for some reason.

  • adam

    Christian will probably be back for the MITB match at mania.

  • Phil Collins

    ^^Might be right. it’s still early and a lot can change from now to the PPV

  • the great gali

    christian will make an opportunist-like sneak at elimination chamber as replacement for khali. just like what edge did for kofi. or khali will get injured and christian will be the replacement. i hope he gets the title

  • Phil Collins

    Good to see there’s a Justin Gabriel-Cody Rhodes feud in the works. I was hoping WWE would see the potential between these two.

    Also it’s kinda senseless that they put Khali in a main event one month because the next month chances are he won’t even be on the card. It would make more sense to put Justin Gabriel in Henry’s spot given that it could further the potential feud with Rhodes. Hell even DiBiase would be suitable just to give the guy the cred and give him a bit of a push. Would rather see Christian in that spot but that’s just personal preference/opinion.

  • Automattic

    For everyone talking about getting tired of Brodus Clay, listen up. What they’re doing with him is pretty standard for a new guy. Come in, win a few matches easily to be considered viable, then move on to some feuds where he doesn’t win so easily. It happens time and time again. With Drew attacking him after the match, they might be moving him from squash matches to an actual feud. It’s only been a few weeks, chill out.

    Also, Devil_Rising has a good point about having Punk and Bryan in main events. Give these guys some main event clout. I understand they’re trying to bring in viewers at the start of a new hour, but there’s plenty of talent to do that with. How about, oh I don’t know…the Intercontinental Champion? Anyway, Smackdown seems to be getting a bit better, let’s be thankful for that 🙂

  • Epic

    Christian? Really? No thx then better Big Daddy V -,-

  • Chuva

    Wow. I haven’t watched Smackdown in months… and months. Reading this reminds me why. Run-ins, interference… schmoz… Brodus Clay… ewww. Danielson is the ONLY thing worth watching on Smackdown. Too bad he’ll job to Orton. 🙁

  • Tyler(:

    @Devil_Rising, no one should take Punk seriously as champion, he said he’s gonna change the face of wrestling, by bringing the ratings down.

    Way to go Mr. “Best In The World” I qoute that because it’s clearly untrue.

  • Diesel

    To borrow a line from HBK “who books this crap?”

  • Sammo

    Geez… I was hoping we’d seen the last of The Great Khali (in a wrestling capacity at least) – but now he’s back in PPV main events?! How depressing.

  • graham

    With the amount of talent on the books you would expect wwe to have awesome matches, but with people like clay squashing mcintyre it really is a joke considering what they have. Clay Is a joke period.

  • Soulshroude

    Boring… boring… boring…

  • Devil_Rising

    2 things.

    1) How are fans supposed to take World Champions Punk and Bryan seriously, if they aren’t even in the main event matches half the time, instead being supplanted by, typically, Orton and Cena?

    2) Brodus Clay and his whole entrance, dance, squash, dance routine got old after…..about the second time around. I don’t mind him as an in ring performer…but honestly, I’d rather have Viscera if we’re doing the “gigantic fat guy” thing. Having, essentially, another Raw/SD squash of his at the RR, didn’t make any sense either. Don’t know what it is, but the front office obviously thinks this guy is a HUGE star. I just can’t wait until fans finally get sick of the same old thing, and start booing him. I don’t DISlike the guy, but it’s already old.

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    Im sure Captain Charisma will be back for Wrestlemania 28, at least I’m hoping!

  • Jimbo

    Yeah where’s Christian? Just as well though….he would have just ended up eating an RKO on the steel anyway.

  • Starship Pain

    “Comedy”. Right…

  • Prince

    Khali? Really? I was hoping for Christian.

  • Zach D

    Sounds like a good show. And Khali is back in the chamber for the first time since 2008 with Big Daddy V!
