Let’s Talk Wrestling : WWE Smackdown – Episode 1166 (12.24.2021) (Review)

WWE SmackDown Women’s Title Match
Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Toni Storm

A very mediocre match where I’m not entirely sure why they didn’t give Toni more offense. She’s very over with the crowd yet this match had Charlotte walking all over her most the match. It felt like it went on far too long due to how slowly paced the match was. 

2 / 5

WWE Intercontinental Title #1 Contendership 12 Days Of Christmas Gauntlet Match
Cesaro vs. Sami Zayn vs. Sheamus (w/Ridge Holland) vs. Erik vs. Drew Gulak vs. Ricochet vs. Ivar vs. Jinder Mahal vs. Angel vs. Shanky vs. Humberto vs. Mansoor

A gauntlet match that was seemingly carried by only Sheamus and Ricochet. It had its moments where it was really good especially towards the end. Ricochets moonsault to Sheamnus on the outside where he landed on Sheamus’ head looked great but also a bit scary for Sheamus. Having Zayn win was the smart choice to set up that story. 

3 / 5

Six Man Tag Team Miracle On 34th Street Fight
Drew McIntyre & The New Day (King Woods & Kofi Kingston) vs. Madcap Moss & The Usos (Jey Uso & Jimmy Uso) (w/Happy Corbin)

A comedy 6 man tag street fight. A lot of Christmas themed items here and some comedy angles that I felt were just too much. It was odd though for it to start like a normal tag match before going tornado tag style. Drew getting the pin was smart but the match as a whole just didn’t do much. 

2 / 5
