The overarcing story to today's show was Damien Sandow and the Hunt for the Briefcase. Cody Rhodes stole it during his opening match against Randy Orton, Sandow searched the arena for Cody afterwards, and the show capped off with Cody throwing the briefcase into the Gulf of Mexico, and the revelation that Damien Sandow cannot swim.

We also had a rare Smackdown CM Punk promo, an AJ State of Her Mind Address, the debut of Face Mark Henry in a tag match, the in-ring debut of the Wyatt Family as they handily squashed Tons of Funk, Christian vs. Swagger, a criminally short Alberto Del Rio vs. Rob Van Dam match, and notable absences of Daniel Bryan, Antonio Cesaro, Sheamus and the Shield.

There's probably no chance for vignettes of Sandow learning how to swim with floaties on his arms as he mounts a campaign to retrieve his briefcase from the Gulf Coast.

Fandango had the best sell job of the GTS I've ever seen. Flexibility is his middle name, if he had other names.

Speaking of rag dolls, poor AJ had another bad night. She's not quite the malevolent master of relationship revenge she may have lead Big E. to believe she is.

But at least she got the Harley Quinn reference in there.

So the latest victim of the infamous dumped in the Gulf of Mexico spot was a briefcase.

If Fandango goes on to just be the most recognizable jobber on the roster and ONLY ever win at WrestleMania...

I believe her shorts were also a Harley reference.

Ziggler's improv comedy skillz finally got a spotlight on WWE TV. I was cracking up at his joke about "living off the grid" after AJ cut up his credit card.

Does this mean Sandow DOESN'T get his title shot now?

...hardly seems fair.

However, if the Gulf of Mexico, and undefeated entity in the WWE wishes to turn in the briefcase...

This show suffered from being 1 show's worth of writing split into 2 since they taped back-to-back SDs, hence things like a Punk/Fandango angle leading to a (spoiler!) match being spaced over two shows. Then on top of that, what I presume was intended to be the main event, Van Dam vs. Del Rio, had to be turned into that short segment in the middle of the show because Del Rio broke a rib on Monday. Why they had to follow through with RVD/ADR when the advertised Smackdown main changes all the time, I'm not sure.

The Wyatts looked, uh, less than great, although part of that probably suffered from putting them in with the Tons instead of some Gabriel/Ryder type guys to bounce around for them. There is probably something beneficial to dismantling a couple of 300 pounders in two minutes too. I thought Big Show's scrapped return on Raw combined with the lack of a Wyatt segment might've meant they'd be coming after him too, leading to Kane & Show against the Wyatts. According to Meltzer, that's only sort of right: Big Show is supposed to return to team with Mark Henry against the Shield. This is putting the cart ahead of the horse, but I like my way better -- Kane and the Wyatts is going to be a challenge either way, but the Shield could have their usual great match with Mark Henry and two workers to set him up, be it the Usos or some cavalry babyfaces in need of a SummerSlam spot like Sheamus/Orton/RVD.

Possibly about the shorts. She wore those shorts when she beat Kaitlyn for the Divas Title too.

I actually found Ziggler kind of insufferable, in the same way I find Cena insufferable in similar situations. A heel is trying to get some heat on him - SELL IT, even a little.

My favorite line of the night, Tazz says something like: "We're gonna get to see Nidia wrestle, but you'd rather see her 'box'" heh. I dunno why but that had me rolling. A bit perverted yes, bit in a cooler way than Lawler.
