Very entertaining episode of Smackdown. Loved the Gulf Of Mexico touch at the end.
Kane is in the ring with his ominous music in the background. He claims yesterday the unthinkable happened. He says his Brother moved. Not only did he move, he opened his eyes. He says his voice was weak and frail, but he uttered two words. He says those two words will be forever engraved in his psyche, because they were the words of his assailant. He says he had been too blind to see it. The guilty party is...REY MYSTERIO!.|Uh huh. Sure|. He said him and his brother had a moment of staring before he drifted back into unconsciousness. He claims Rey had the most to gain. He says Rey lost to The Undertaker for a qualification spot at Fatal Four Way. He says Rey took the cowards way out. Like a virus he won a 20 man battle royal, and secured a place in the Fatal Four Way. Two weeks after that, he emerged victorious instead of hanging his head in shame, of what he had done. He says victory will not be enough at Summerslam. Vengeance will endure, and he will make sure Rey suffers what his brother has. He will stuff Rey in the casket, and damn him to eternal hell. More great stuff from Kane. His creepy speeches are just mesmerizing to watch.

Christian Vs Drew McIntyre. Excellent match-up here. Christian played the Wiley veteran beautifully, and Drew's aggressiveness is paying off now a days. I loved the old school psychologically of Drew working over Christian's arm, with Christian playing the baby face in peril, and securing the upset victory with smarts. Christian wins with a roll-up.

Cody provides us with another dashing tip. This time. Telling you to clean your pours properly. He even wears green goop on his face.
Another boring Del Rio promo.
CM Punk is with the rest of the SES backstage. He asks who will let him down tonight. Punk ridicules them, while Joey Mercury tells Punk he took off his mask too. Punk mocks Joey, asking if he needs a tissue. He says without him, none of them would be here. He tells them to do something, if not they can pack their bags. Solid stuff from Punk, but it is getting a bit redundant.

Big Show Vs Luke Gallows. More storyline advancement, than anything else. Not much of a match, until the SES interferes. They break Big Show's hand as a collective unit.
2 1/2 /5|For the solid aftermath|
Kofi Kingston Vs Dolph Ziggler. Better than most of their bouts, but nothing out of the ordinary. These two just don't mesh well together, it is as simple as that. Match ends when Kofi gets himself DQ'ed. Kofi goes nuts on Dolph after the match, beating him all over the place, as the crowd chants "Kofi, Kofi".

Josh is backstage with Jack Swagger. Jack says his father is still in the hospital, and after tonight, he will make sure Rey won't walk at Summerslam.
WWE Woman's Championship Match.
Rosa wishes Tiffany&Kelly good luck.
Layla|C| Vs Tiffany. EXCUSE ME!!.|Oh joy| She says McCool will be defending instead|OK...then? what is the difference?| Not an abomination like most diva matches, I'll say that at least. McCool retains for her BFFL by using the Faithbreaker. Teddy announces next week, one of them has to decide who the real champion is. And that's real talk.

Another Del Rio segment.
Rey Mysterio Vs Jack Swagger. Match wise it's decently brutal and effective, but the aftermath is what entertained me heavily. I loved the battle out on the street, all the way into The Gulf. It was really non P.G like, and nice to see. Mysterio applied some risky maneuvers, but they payed off. I also liked Swagger's ruthlessness. Kane choke slams Mysterio into the gulf, in an awesome moment.
Bottom line. I really, really enjoyed this episode. Almost all of it entertained me, and the ending was memorable. See it.
