Video: WWE Smackdown for Aug. 24, 2012, featuring Randy Orton vs. Alberto Del Rio


I have to admit, I dig the gold on black look on Alberto Del Rio's gear more than I did the black on gold.

When a feud is as lackluster as his has been with Sheamus, you have to find some silver lining whenever possible. That's what I like about Del Rio.

As for Sheamus?

There's not much. He's pushed as a fan favorite but he acts like a rulebreaker and that just rubs me the wrong way. There's an inherent difference in his character and say, the character of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin who represented the common man flipping off his boss, drinking beer and kicking ass.

Sheamus is basically an Irish John Cena with none of the social nuances Austin had so when he's blatantly cheating, WWE is saying it's cool to cheat as long as the guy you're doing it too is worse than you.

Anyhoo, enjoy the video, Cagesiders.
