WWE Smackdown – Episode 1227 (02.24.2023) (Wrestling Review)



Evansville, Indiana

Feb. 24th, 2023


Six Man Tag Team Match
Braun Strowman, Madcap Moss & Ricochet vs. Imperium (Giovanni Vinci, Gunther & Ludwig Kaiser)

A fun six man tag match. Everyone got some good spots and Gunther gets to look like a monster. Gunter just needs a threat to face and matches like this are nothing for him right now. 

2.75 / 5

Singles Match
Kofi Kingston (w/Xavier Woods) vs. LA Knight

This was a fine tv match but sort of pointless. Knight could use a win here since he lost the Bray feud. Woods doesn’t need a win at all but at least it wasn’t a squash. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Natalya (w/Tegan Nox) vs. Shayna Baszler (w/Ronda Rousey)

A 2 minute squash that no one cared about really. 

.75 / 5

Singles Match
Rey Mysterio vs. Karrion Kross (w/Scarlett)

Karrion looked decent enough here which is more than I can say for most of either of his main roster runs. This was mainly to just build more towards Rey vs Dom at Wrestlemania though. Fine match but Karrion winning means nothing. 

2 / 5
