An alarm got me up four hours earlier than I normally would today, so I'm lacking the energy for a recap. We wound up with some good matches on Smackdown, including Bryan vs. The Ryback, Orton vs. Sandow (though not quite as good as the Rhodes/Orton match on Monday), and Kane vs. Ambrose as the main event. And hey, we now know what Ambrose's finisher is, a bulldog DDT.

Oh, and Dolph Ziggler compared Zeb Colter to Dr. Robotnik.

And now the floor is open!

I only was half-watched SD! on+off all night, but pretty much everything I saw was good and entertaining. Teddy Long got to do what he does best - make a tag team match, playa! Oh and Sheamus continues to be a jerky sore loser of a face vs. Mark Henry, who plays by the rules in all his non-wrestling competitions. Meanwhile, Seth Rollins is continuing to attempt to be the new Ziggles with his crazy bumps. Speaking of...

I wish I'd heard that line! No wonder AJ luvs him so!

The Sheamus thing seems almost as if WWE is trying to make a point, as Sheamus continues to get beat fair and square, only to jump Mark Henry from behind or by surprise. How does Sheamus being a whining, underhanded cheater make people want to cheer him? I'm very okay with shades of grey, but this doesn't seem like that. It seems like a complete inversion, where good guys and bad guys are just different teams or brands, with actual behavior meaning nothing at all.

Teddy Long not only made a tag team match, he did it twice! In the same match, no less!

While I've been pretty annoyed by the Zeb/Swagger team, Zeb's promo about his heroism was pretty good. If we could only have the wayback machine, Zeb twenty years ago would be a better contender than Swagger is now.

Ambrose's finisher looked...pretty weak. Which sucks, because I love Ambrose.

I don't get it either. Bizarre behavior lately for a babyface.

First finishers rarely stick, so I expect Ambrose will find a better one in the future.

Best part of the show: Dolph towing the "shoot" line by burying the announce team, riffing on Teddy Long, and making fun of Colter.

Hasn't this been the John Cena formula for a while now?

I don't see how he's a cheater or anything; Mark Henry isn't exactly an angel. He's pretty much an angry, violent bully and people like standing up to bullies.

It's no different from Steve Austin, really, if you think about it.
