After watching the cage match, I am not seeing the giant put over of Bryan. He acted like a heel with running out at the beginning and got very limited offense then as someone pointed out lost in a very illogical way.

People are so hung up on the heel thing. Not you right now, but for instance after he kicked Henry on his ankle last week.
That got a pretty big pop because it was one "smart thus cool" things to do. Nothing heelish there imo.

In this match he acted like a guy that knew he was overpowered and thus tried to be smart at first(unlike most wrestlers ever seem to be). Henry threw him around and yet still he fought back with kicks and even a few good submissions. Hanging on to Henry's leg when he was almost down and out showed his 'will not give up' attitude.
The crowd started rooting for him more and more, as they should for the underdog and he brought Henry down and even got him in trouble with the submissions.
In the end it took a HUGE move by Henry to get the victory.

That is why it put Bryan over.

Overal it was a fun show. Some of the backstage stuff was goofy but entertaining. Matches were pretty decent.

I thought WWE would've tried to put their best foot forward with a live show in order to perhaps get Smackdown on Tuesdays live in the future, and to do that, they need higher ratings than what they get on Fridays. I didn't think this show seemed to aim that high.

The first hour-and-45 minutes was kind of a waste. Nothing really got accomplished and for a live special, I guess I expected more. The Divas match stunk, the battle royal was full of jobbers and was won by Hornswoggle, who eliminated and outsmarted a past and future main eventer after what felt like forever. The backstage segments were not nearly as good as a few years ago (a year ago maybe?) when Cole puked. The entire first segment was focused on the announcers....again. Oh, and Cody Rhodes. Kofi pestering Cole and stealing his Reindeer mask was just weird and didn't seem to fit his character. Otunga vs. Orton was some fun but in the end, it meant nothing. Bryan vs. Henry was easily the best part of the show.

Edge was signing his new book at Waldenbooks near me, so my wife and some friends decided to go down. We got there four hours early which was a good thing since at the end the line stretched to half the mall.
