Anyway, SmackDown was presented from Tulsa, OK, and it featured a main event of one of the biggest rivalries of 2013—WWE Champion Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan. Although Bryan wants to refocus on becoming champion again, the Wyatt Family had other plans.
Fandango vs. Big E. Langston
Poor Fandango. He is next to completely irrelevant now, and the only elements that are keeping him on television are Summer Rae and his theme music. I was never sold on the gimmick anyway, and he falls into the list of people that Chris Jericho put over—that never got very over. Ask Evan Bourne and John Morrison how that worked out.
Big E., on the other hand, is clearly starting to get the reaction he received when he was a babyface on NXT. I do not believe that we will see the "5!" chants again, but the WWE needs to spend a significant amount of time developing his character into a top guy. Him feuding with Mark Henry will help significantly.
I am okay with the Curtis Axel/Ryback team, but they would have gained more steam but winning a number one contenders match. The team is not even over enough to beat the champions cleanly. Regardless, it looks like we will see this match at TLC, and Goldust/Cody Rhodes continue to drastically improve the tag team division.
