Well, Raw was certainly a dud, wasn't it?
Like my Cageside colleague Geno said in his reactions piece, last night's (March 26) episode of Raw did absolutely nothing to sway any fence-sitters towards buying WrestleMania 28. In fact, it may have done the exact opposite.
Unfortunately, don't expect any different from this Friday's (March 30) edition of Smackdown. Thanks to the amended WrestleMania schedule, matches for the episode were taped prior to last night's Raw and while it appears a match -- and a good one at that -- between Chris Jericho and Kofi Kingston will headline the card, there isn't much else to sink your teeth into.
Expect a lot -- and let me emphasis A LOT -- of video packages and maybe even some footage from Fan Axxess which begins Thursday (Marh 29) because if there's nothing else people love, it's watching footage of others having a whole lot of fun.
Full -- and I use the term lightly -- spoilers are the jump.
CM Punk's opponent on Sunday, Chris Jericho, took on Kofi Kingston and won after countering a Trouble in Paradise into a Walls of Jericho.
Team Teddy members Zack Ryder defeated newest Team Johnny member Drew McIntyre.
The Big Show cut a promo saying he'll finally get his WrestleMania moment on Sunday when he defeats Cody Rhodes for the Intercontinental Championship.
And in a segment solely for the live audience in Atlanta, a Jinder Mahal promo was interrupted by D-Generation X. Triple H and Shawn Michaels each hit their finisher on Mahal and Michaels cheekily told his best friend he was still better than "The Game" before playfully running back up the ramp.
It can be assumed Triple H is ALWAYS backstage but now we know Michaels was there too. Any reason why these two didn't make it onto the Raw broadcast?
Aside from the Jericho/Kingston match, this episode of Smackdown has "DVR fast forward" written all over it.
What do you think, Cagesiders?
