TONIGHT! It's SmackDown in Sin City! Daniel Bryan defends the World Heavyweight Championship against Mark Henry! Plus, Sheamus faces Wade Barrett to hype the Royal Rumble! Plus, some Vegas-related shenanigans! SmackDown is NOW!

WWE - The Champ is Here!

Here's a video package on the AJ angle from last Friday. Thanks to the magic of editing, it doesn't look completely terrible!

Opening credits - Do You Know Your Enemy? God, WWE, PLEASE get some new music for your shows! I refuse to let this go! Opening pyro! Dig the casino borders on the Titantron! We are taped from Las Vegas, NV!

For the second straight week, LILIAN GARCIA brings out DANIEL BRYAN for our opening promo. He comes out to even more heel heat than last week! He's got the mic, so it's promo time!

"Tonight's television show is aptly named Sin City SmackDown. Not just because we are eminating from Las Vegas, but that's because it's exactly what Big Show did to my girlfriend AJ last week. He...committed...a sin! Big Show is 441 pounds, the World's Largest Athlete! My girlfriend AJ...a mere 95. Ok? And just like I said Monday on Raw, bowling over AJ was not an accident, it was intentional! Ok, and Big Show, he was NOT sorry! He only pretended to be! And those tears, those tears, those were NOT tears of sorrow! Those were crocodile tears! Because you see, Big Show is bitter. He is bitter because his World Heavyweight Championship reign was the shortest in history, a mere 45 seconds! After I cashed in my Money in the Bank contract and beat him for the World Heavyweight Championship, he never lived that down. He is a bitter, selfish, vengeful FREAK! And because of that, my girlfriend AJ has suffered head trauma...a cervical sprain...and her career may very well be over. All because she insisted on being with me at ringside. And why would she do that? Why would she put herself in harm's way? Because she loves me. I have never had anyone say that to me before. She loves me! And I...I have a great admiration for her, as well. Which is why Monday on Raw, I dedicated my match her. And I am going to do the same thing tonight, because even though AJ is not here, in spirit she will BE in my corner. And as for the World's Strongest Man Mark Henry, I am not afraid, just like I am not intimidated by that acromegalic swine Big Show, who by the way, isn't even here tonight! Big Show isn't here tonight and it's a damn good thing, because I cannot be held responsible for what I would do to him, ok? Big Show, I am pleading with you. I am pleading with you for once, ONCE in your life, do the right thing, before I have to unleash my fury on you, ok? And before you inevitably hurt another innocent victim. Big Show, do the decent thing, do the only thing and just QUIT!"

Hit Daniel Bryan's music! He's getting more and more heel heat and this promo was dynamite!

Your hosts are the three poker chips. Cole points the finger at Bryan for what happened to AJ, which is making me fear more that he's going to come out of this whole thing as a de facto babyface. Booker adds nothing. Matthews wishes AJ the best.

Backstage, Alicia Fox, Santino Marella, and Ezekiel Jackson roll some craps. Teddy Long stands with Aksana and...oh, dear God, it's SPIN THE WHEEL, MAKE THE DEAL! Aksana and Long flirt with each other briefly before Cody Rhodes enters the picture. Cody notes that Goldust once spun the wheel and wound up in a Vegas Showgirls match. Cody spins the wheel and gets a Player's Choice match, which means Cody gets to pick his opponent. Cody points off-camera and the camera pans over to...Ezekiel Jackson? Didn't we just see this match LAST week? Despite being undefeated against him, Cody's not referring to Zeke. He's pointing at Hornswoggle! Hornswoggle doesn't look happy about this. And why would he be? Cody's no Heath Slater.

Ad break

CODY RHODES v. HORNSWOGGLE: NON-TITLE PLAYER'S CHOICE MATCH
Hornswoggle doesn't even make it to the ring before Cody piefaces him and kicks him around. Justin Gabriel's music hits and JUSTIN GABRIEL runs out from the back to get a piece of Cody. Gabriel rolls Cody into the ring and asks for a mic. I guess it's promo time!

"Come on, Cody! That's the match you chose? Why don't you pick on someone your own size? Why don't you pick on somebody like...I don't know...ME? Or would you rather do a Vegas Showgirl match?"

Cody accepts the match, but tells Charles Robinson that it's non-title. So I guess we've now segued into...

CODY RHODES v. JUSTIN GABRIEL (w/HORNSWOGGLE): NON-TITLE PLAYER'S CHOICE MATCH
Cody pounds away on Gabriel. Booker asks why Cody isn't putting the title on the line and Cole answers by burying Gabriel, noting that he hasn't won a match in about a year. Yeah, because THAT'S how you build up that young talent, folks! By pointing out that they're LOSERS who do nothing but LOSE all the time! And they wonder why guys like Zack Ryder feel the need to go into business for themselves. Gabriel hits a dropkick. Cody hits the Goldust sliding uppercut and a dropkick for 2. Release suplex and chinlock follow. Cody hits a right hand for a 2 and goes back to the chinlock. Rhodes tries a suplex, but Gabriel hits a Final Cut. Enzigui hits. Gabriel wants the Sternum-Crushing 450 Splash, but he hasn't worn Rhodes down enough. Gabriel opts for a corner elbow, but gets caught on a second corner charge. Alabama Slam is countered with a sunset flip for 2. Backslide gets 2 for Gabriel. A Rhodes corner charge eats boot and Gabriel hits a springboard crossbody for 2. Gabriel tries for a corner monkey flip, but gets hotshotted and Cross-Rhodes finishes in about 4 minutes.

WINNER: Cody Rhodes - That was a good match that needed some more time. Booker tries to put Gabriel over as having gone toe-to-toe with the Intercontinental Champion, which Cole audibly scoffs at. Yeah, because Justin Gabriel is a LOSING LOSER WHO ALWAYS LOSES! No need to take him seriously at all!

Backstage, Mark Henry stands with Teddy Long. It's time to SPIN THE WHEEL, MAKE THE DEAL! Mark Henry thinks this is stupid. I'm inclined to agree. Long tells Henry to spin the wheel and Henry yells at Long that HE needs to spin the wheel since this is his idea. God, I love Mark Henry! I take every bad thing I've ever said about him (and it's a lot, believe me). Long spins the wheel and it lands on...Lumberjack Match. Henry approves and says Daniel Bryan is entering the Hall of Pain tonight. I have a bad feeling about this.

Ad break - Super Dave Laurinaitis is angry...and you won't like him when he's angry!

WWE Rewind - Epico & Primo win the tag titles at a house show and send Evan Bourne on a 60-day vacation.

EPICO & PRIMO (w/ROSA MENDES) v. THE USOS: WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP TORNADO MATCH
All it took for Epico & Primo to get an entrance was for them to win the tag titles. And yet they still aren't important enough for any backstage segments, as Rosa spun the wheel off-camera, with the wheel landing on a Tornado match. That segues into Booker T shilling the WWE Tornado Takedown playset! Wait a minute...did they book a gimmick match with the single purpose of SHILLING A TOY? My head just exploded!

It's a Pier 4 to start and I don't expect this to last long. The Usos double-team both guys and Primo gets nailed with a double-team fistdrop. Jey Uso gets dumped. The champs hit Jimmy with a SWEET double-team gutbuster/suplex combo! More double-teaming against Jimmy. Jey comes back in and we get the babyface comeback. Stereo corner splashes! Stereo Umaga buttsplashes! Rosa starts yelling on the outside and Jey just stands there and stares at her like an idiot, which allows Primo to drive him into the apron and take him out. Jimmy hits a top-rope splash, but Primo breaks up the count. Backstabber finishes in a 2-minute special.

WINNERS: Epico & Primo - Short match, but this needs to be the next big tag feud now that Air Boom's pretty much done for.

Later tonight, Daniel Bryan defends against Mark Henry. Plus, Sheamus faces Wade Barrett!

Ad break

Royal Rumble moment - It's the 2011 Royal Rumble. Diesel and Booker T make their returns and Alberto Del Rio gets rid of Randy Orton and Wade Barrett to win...until everyone realizes that Santino's still in it. Unfortunately, Santino blew his rusty trombone too early and gets dumped and Del Rio wins for real.

Backstage, Teddy Long and Aksana are still flirting and this is STILL pointless. Sheamus enters the picture to SPIN THE WHEEL, MAKE THE DEAL! Aksana spins the wheel and it lands on a Tables Match. Sheamus responds by saying "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." Um...that...doesn't make any sense. How does that saying fit in this context...oh, forget it.

LILIAN GARCIA brings out "THE FUNKASAURUS" BRODUS CLAY. I admit the gimmick's growing on me, but I'll turn on it at the drop of a hat if Booker keeps saying "Shucky Ducky" and if Cole doesn't SHUT THE HELL UP! A dance-off is next! Um...goody?

Ad break

Oh Jesus, it's VICKIE GUERRERO. Vickie says that she's Brodus' opponent for the dance-off. Good lord. Hang on to your hats, folks, we're in for some "COMEDY"! Vickie dances spazzes out. Brodus responds by sending in the Funkettes to outdance Vickie. Brodus does a striptease and jiggles his ass. This is painful, but the crowd is into this...and I mean REALLY into this, so at least this is actually accomplishing something! Brodus is named the winner. Vickie protests and spazzes out again. Interruption comes from...WILLIAM REGAL, of all people! This just got surreal! Regal has the mic, so it's promo time!

Regal: Miss Guerrero, as an English gentleman, I can't allow this to happen. Please, ladies and gentlemen, please don't laugh at this poor, unfortunate lady. How dare you mock this buxom wench? Please...come with me."

Regal tries to escort a distraught Vickie out, but now Brodus has the mic.

Brodus: Where you think you goin' sunshine? Let's see what YOU got! Or are you a funky chicken? Caw CAW! Caw CAW! Funky chicken! Caw CAW!

I haven't seen such an amazing chicken impression since Arrested Development ("Coo coo ka-cha! Coo coo ka-cha!"). Regal doesn't take kindly to this and demands music! So Regal busts a move...and looks surprisingly good! Sensing he might be outshined by the Funky Chicken, Brodus hits the crossbody and flattens poor Regal. Brodus calls for someone to call Regal's momma. Hit Brodus' music! Segment ends with Brodus helping Regal to his feet, like a good sport. Man...that segment ran the gamut from trainwreck to awesome back to trainwreck and circling around to awesome again.

Coming up next, Sheamus faces Wade Barrett in a Tables Match.

Ad break

WADE BARRETT v. "THE GREAT WHITE" SHEAMUS: TABLES MATCH
Barrett hammers on Sheamus to start, but Sheamus quickly comes back. Both men exchange blows before Sheamus dumps Barrett. Barrett drives Sheamus hard into the apron. Barrett grabs a table, but Sheamus nails him before he can set it up. Sheamus slams Barrett's head on the announce table. Sheamus scoops Barrett, but gets driven into the steel post. We go back to the ring, as Barrett pounds on Sheamus. Barrett tries for his running boot, position Sheamus so that he falls through the table. The running boot hits, but Sheamus falls onto the apron. Barrett tries for an apron suplex before it's blocked with the ten chest strikes. Sheamus charges at Barrett, but hits him too hard, as Barrett flies OVER the table and ends up slamming his face on the announce table. Sheamus grabs another table, but Barrett boots it into his face. Barrett slides that table into the ring and throws Sheamus in. The table gets set up near the corner. Barrett picks up Sheamus, but Sheamus slides out and makes the babyface comeback. Barrett is placed on the table and Sheamus goes up, but Barrett pops up and hammers on Sheamus. Barrett wants the superplex, but is headbutted off. Sheamus leaps over both Barrett and the table (!) and Barrett moves the table away. Barrett gets nailed with the Irish Curse. Sheamus sets the table up in the corner and tries for the High Cross, but here's JINDER MAHAL for the distraction. Oh, for fuck's sakes, are they going to set up ANOTHER Sheamus/Jinder Mahal match? Sheamus dispatches Mahal, as Cole talks about their "long-standing rivalry," by which he must mean "Sheamus squashing him three times." Barrett takes the distracted Sheamus and chucks him through the table for the win at about 7 minutes.

WINNER: Wade Barrett - Perfectly entertaining tables match.

Post-match, Jinder Mahal sets up furniture and tries to drive Sheamus into it. Sheamus hits a Brogue Kick, instead. Sheamus picks up Mahal and drives him through the table. Hit Sheamus' music! Hopefully, that settles that and we're not subjected to a FOURTH Sheamus/Jinder Mahal match.

Later tonight, it's a World Heavyweight Championship Lumberjack Match!

Ad break - B.A. Star promo!

TED DiBIASE v. HUNICO (w/CAMACHO)
This match is happening because Hunico and Camacho feel disrespected that they haven't been invited to a DiBiase Posse party. Why yes, this IS the exact same setup as when they faced each other two weeks ago, why do you ask? Anyway, at the very least, this is at least going to end up being something fresh, because we go backstage to Teddy Long. SPIN THE WHEEL, MAKE THE DEAL! And we get...

TED DiBIASE v. HUNICO (w/CAMACHO): FLAG MATCH
Since the wheel's landed on a Flag Match, the ring crew storm the ring to set up poles and a U.S. and Mexican flag. It's a good thing it didn't land on Flag Match for two Americans or would THEIR faces have been red! I wonder if they had other flags ready to go at a moment's notice? An Irish flag for Sheamus? The Union Jack for Wade Barrett? A South African flag for Justin Gabriel? The possibilities! Or I could be overthinking this just a tad. As the flags are set up, we go to your hosts, the three cocktail olives (sigh...look, I'm running out of adjectives, ok?), who briefly recount the DiBiase/Hunico feud and send it off to a DiBiase Wrestling Challenge insert promo.

Hunico pounds away to start, but runs into a tilt-a-whirl faceplant. DiBiase goes for the flag, but Hunico catches him with a sunset flip powerbomb! Hunico gose for the Mexican flag, but is caught with an electric chair drop! DiBiase charges and gets backdropped over the top rope. Hunico tries for the flag, but DiBiase shoves him into Camacho! DiBiase limps to his corner. Hunico charges at him, but gets dropped on the turnbuckle and hit with Dream Street. DiBiase grabs the flag for the win in a two-minute special.

WINNER: Ted DiBiase - The match lasted almost as long as the ring setup.

Backstage, Daniel Bryan is pouring his emotions out to Kaitlyn. For the purposes of this storyline, please forget that Kaitlyn was inches away from turning heel on AJ.

Ad break - WWE Best Matches of 2011 DVD promo

Raw Rebound kill some time.

Backstage, Teddy Long fires Drew McIntyre. Santino Marella enters the picture, taking umbrage at the idea that his win against "Drew McIntosh" was a fluke. So he wants a rematch. Long grants this match and asks Drew to SPIN THE WHEEL, MAKE THE DEAL! It lands on...Blindfold Match. OH, DEAR GOD, NO!!!

Elsewhere backstage, Mark Henry is prepping for his match later tonight.

Ad break

We are taped from Las Vegas, NV! We take a look at the Royal Rumble match, as played in WWE 12.

SANTINO MARELLA v. DREW McINTYRE
Poor Drew doesn't even get an entrance, so I don't like his chances here. Charles Robinson puts the blindfold on McIntyre. Santino puts a blindfold on his cobra before Robinson blindfolds Santino.

This has the potential to be really awful. Both guys poke around aimlessly and spill out of the ring. McIntyre swings and hits the steel post! Both guys end up back in the ring. Santino nearly nails Charles Robinson! The distraction allows Drew to sneak a peek, but he crotches himself on a running boot, anyway. Santino relies on the crowd and points around. As soon as he hears the crowd pop, Santino charges in with THE COBRA~! for the pin in a two-minute special.

WINNER: Santino Marella - This wasn't so bad, thanks in big part to it being so short.

Coming up next, Daniel Bryan and Mark Henry face off in a Lumberjack Match. The lumberjacks start making their way to the ring.

Ad break

Promo for next week's SmackDown. Randy Orton RETURNS! WHOA! That was unexpected! I had him pegged as a surprise Rumble entrant for sure!

We pan over the ring to see the lumberjacks. We have CURT HAWKINS, TYLER REKS, CODY RHODES, EPICO, PRIMO, HEATH SLATER, DREW McINTYRE, HUNICO, CAMACHO, "THE GREAT WHITE" SHEAMUS, TED DiBIASE, EZEKIEL JACKSON, THE USOS, TYSON KIDD, TRENT BARRETA, YOSHI TATSU, JUSTIN GABRIEL, and WADE BARRETT. This all leads to...

"THE WORLD'S STRONGEST MAN" MARK HENRY v. DANIEL BRYAN: WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP LUMBERJACK MATCH
Mark Henry gets heel heat, but Daniel Bryan gets HEEL HEAT! Henry's clearly a de facto face in this match. We get the championship intros from Lilian Garcia.

Henry catches a Bryan kick and shoves him down to start. Bryan tries to hammer away and gets headbutted. Bryan spills to the outside and quickly gets on the apron, turning around to tell the lumberjack "Don't you guys touch me! I'm the World Heavyweight Champion!" HA! Henry has his way with Bryan and muscles him around. Cole tries to take credit for being ahead of the curve on Daniel Bryan, noting that he was the first one to hate on him. I wish someone would smack him. Henry methodically works over Bryan, simply toying with him. Bryan gets nailed with a shoulderblock so hard that it takes him out of the ring, so Wade Barrett tosses him back in. Bryan and Barrett exchange words in another entertaining spot. That takes us to our final ad break of the night.

We come back with Henry tossing Bryan around some more. Bryan finally thinks to target Henry's ankle. He tries for a corner beatdown and gets shoved off. He tries again and gets shoved off again. Bryan comes back with a YAAAAAH running corner dropkick. Bryan uses a double-leg takedown and kicks Henry in the head for 2. Bryan tries to take a breather, but the lumberjacks slowly advance towards him. Bryan goes back in and Henry runs him over with a clothesline. Henry tosses Bryan around some more. Corner charge eats boot. Bryan charges in, but Henry turns him inside-out with a clothesline for 2. Henry makes a REALLY intense "pissed off" face! Henry opts for the military press and dumps Bryan onto a bunch of lumberjacks! Now Bryan tries fighting the lumberjacks and he quickly finds himself outnumbered! Henry chucks Bryan back in, but Bryan dropkicks him out. The lumberjacks all gang up on Henry to try and toss him back in. Bryan tries for some cheap shots, but he gets jumped by Wade Barrett and Cody Rhodes! Ezekiel Jackson and Ted DiBiase also come in and Bryan is getting quadruple-teamed! Meanwhile, Henry single-handedly throws off ALL of the lumberjacks! Henry goes back in the ring and, sensing his title shot going down the drain, gets rid of DiBiase, Rhodes, Jackson, and Barrett one-by-one! Bryan tries to charge at Henry and nearly gets caught with the World's Strongest Slam, but Cody Rhodes breaks it up! And now everybody rushes the ring for the cliched lumberjack brawl. The crowd boos the shit out of this and I can't blame them. Bryan slithers away with the title and bails! Cole is losing his shit!

Backstage, Teddy Long catches up to Bryan and demands answers. Bryan expresses anger over what happened last week and tonight. Teddy Long responds to this by booking the a Triple Threat match with Bryan facing Big Show and Mark Henry...in a STEEL CAGE! And so our show ends with Bryan looking unhappy over these developments.

FINAL TH...

Oops...

WINNER: No Contest

Almost forgot again...NOW we go to the...

FINAL THOUGHT

The lumberjack brawl might be a way to build up the Rumble match, but GOOD LORD is it cliched as hell! It was a really slow match up to that point, too, as it looks like Mark Henry still may not be 100%. I don't know how they're going to get a screwy finish at the Rumble, but I would think something weird needs to happen in the cage to set up the Elimination Chamber.

The rest of the show was decent. Nothing overly terrible, but nothing great, either. But if anything's going to put this show into thumbs up territory, it's WILLIAM REGAL! Give me more REGAL!

Until next time!

That Flag Match might possibly be the best Flag Match I've ever seen. Two minutes of DiBiase and Hunico taking crazy ass power bombs and bumps and launching each other all over the ring. Add the fact that DiBiase was legit suffering from food poisoning and in real pain the whole time and that was a hell of a performance.

Excellent slapstick comedy in the blindfold match and a night of wild emotional turns for Drew "I'M BETTER THAN THIS!!" McIntosh. He was calm and grateful backstage while the wheel spun. In the ring he was incensed and hysterical. Then post-his fourth or fifth firing, he was suddenly in the Lumberjack match calmly smirking and audibly laughing as Daniel "Don't you touch me!" Bryan was being tossed around by Mark Henry. LOL at Drew swinging and punching the ring post, legit hurting himself, and Booker questioning why he did that.

Also LOL to Cole reminding everyone Booker once took a Stinkface from Rikishi and threw up on him at ringside.

LOLOL to Booker demonstrating (poorly) the Tornado toy ring and his explanation that he'd been waiting for a Tornado Match to finally be booked so he could demonstrate the toy ring, and the implication he'd been traveling to every event with that toy ring just hoping a Tornado match would be booked as a segueway for him to do so.

Mark Henry seems to be turning face against his wishes.

I have A GREAT ADMIRATION for Daniel's GREAT ADMIRATION for AJ. It's just a shame there was no audio during the backstage segment of Daniel and Kaitlyn's conversation. I bet they were discussing the intricacies of their heel turns and how AJ factors in to them.

I'm torn about this: Vickie did the Elaine Dance from Seinfeld. That aired originally in Oct. 1996, 15 years ago. Now, is that reference "lame old" or "cool old?" I avoid Seinfeld reruns so I have no idea of its currency.

This show did a fine job of feud transference. Cody moved from Hornswoggle (lame) to Justin Gabriel (intriguing, slightly lame because of the weak werewolf hairdo), and Broadus moved from Vickie (who isn't gonna waste Ziggler or Swagger on Clay) to Regal (who isn't doing anything else) within minutes. They could continue either beef at the Rumble in singles matches of the main event.


    And I am going to do the same thing tonight, because even though AJ is not here, in spirit she will BE in my corner.


I heard that as "even though AJ is not here in spirit, she will BE in my corner." Took me back to Batista's 'weapons are not only encouraged, they're allowed" flub.

Note that during Regal's dancing, he made a "somebody-call-my-momma" phone-to-ear hand gesture in Clay's direction. Which is why Regal will always be amazing, no matter how many silly things he does. Also note that Brodus called him "Sunshine!"

There was something wonderfully '80s about Booker having to plug that new "tornado" toy ring before the match. But the light-up figures? Is John Cena actually E.T.? Does the Miz's arm light up to show where the pain is and medication will be flowing to a-la an asprin ad?

Well, John Cena referenced Tattoo from Fantasy Island, which aired a solid 15 years before that Seinfeld episode. That's gotta be lame old.

Regal was just awesome in that skit. I thought the phone- -to-ear gesture was directed at one of the dancers. Love phrases like "Buxom Wench".

I'm so glad they're doing fun characters like Brodus. Randy Orton might as well be any old MMA fighter- there's no entertainment in his sports entertainment.

Here here. The Funkasaurus was a sorely needed injection of fun into the shows. It's great to have a fun-loving guy who likes to have fun on the roster. Plus Brodus retains an air of danger about him regardless; that he's just seconds away from ripping someone apart if you force him to stop having fun.

Nadine and What's her name, Alicia Fox vs. Melina is her favorite match Tough Enough woman (I think her name is Cameron Lynn now), lucked into a pretty sweet gig. Most of the Divas, even Kelly Kelly, are lucky to be booked on their brand's show two weeks in a row. Why the Divas Champion hasn't been seen or heard from in weeks. By virtue of dancing with the Funkasaurus, Naomi and Cameron get to be on TV every week and on both shows thus far. Funny how things work out.

I paused the show just to have The Lovely Mrs. Tracker meet the Funkasaurus. She was smiling as soon as he hit the ramp, and we were both guffawing over the Pterodactyl. This gimmick is sheer delight. And he uses the Knox Block, which was never more effective than against Rey Mysterio, when it looked like a surfboard tackling a toddler. The WWE struck gold here ("Gold, Jerry, gold." I'm lame old).

For the love of God, they have to bring back Rikishi for a Mania dance off. Miami will asplode.

I was just about to correct you and say that Rikishi was dead, but obviously I was wrong. I must have been thinking about Umaga.

I had the same sudden doubt and made with da Googles.

And now that I think of it, you make an immediate top heel out of Mister Brock Lesnar at Mania if he interrupts and F5s either or both.

Since our commentary team can only correctly identify references from the 1970s or earlier, it shouldn't have come as much of a surprise that nobody made the connection on the air. (The answer, of course, is "lazy writing.")

Also, they still can't tell a backslash from a slash. (That has nothing to do with this, but I like reminding you.)

Sadly our commentary team didn't note that Vickie was taught that move by her NXT rookie Kaitlyn.

Sometimes the student teaches the teacher.
