Holy crap! What a great episode of Smackdown. If I didn't know better, I would have said this could have been a great episode of Raw. The main event of this evening was amazing, as was the building up for Money in the Bank. Oh, how I hope this title match will be a contender for match of the year, because, and yes, pardon my french, even ADR is a good performer, along with the rest of the participants in this match. I think this is good for Del Rio, and his character is really starting to build up. I like what they are doing with Bo Dallas, and I love the character. They built up next week's Raw fantastic, and I have never had more faith in the WWE since Edge won the Royal Rumble.
