Chris HumphreyCorrespondent IMarch 14, 2012

After being out of action since last November, former World Heavyweight Champion Christian made his return to the WWE this week as he held his segment, the Peep Show, interviewing GMs John Laurinaitis and Teddy Long.

Which team did Captain Charisma pick to join for the match to determine who will be the sole general manager after WrestleMania?

From Wrestling News Source:

* Kofi Kingston beat David Otunga with Trouble in Paradise.

* AJ Lee with Daniel Bryan at ringside defeated Brie Bella.

* Cody Rhodes defeated The Great Khali with Beautiful Disaster.

* Big Show squashed Drew McIntyre with the WMD punch.

* Mark Henry beat Yoshi Tatsu.

* Chris Jericho defeated Sheamus by count out after Daniel Bryan came down and attacked Sheamus while he was out on the floor.

As for the decision of which team Christian would choose at WrestleMania, he picked to be a part of Johnny Ace’s team, as Laurinaitis promised him a championship match if he wins the tag team match in Miami.

I will still keep with my prediction that Laurinaitis will win the tag team match, even though most fans will pick the fan favorite Teddy Long to become the GM of both Raw and SmackDown.

Speaking of WrestleMania, the rumored match between Randy Orton and Kane was made official after the two have been feuding on both Raw and SmackDown since the Viper returned from his concussion a few weeks ago on SmackDown.

I think the Kane-Orton match will be a good match in Miami, but it just seems like the WWE is using the Big Red Monster as a jobber these days after falling to John Cena recently in their feud on Raw.

As for the losses by the Great Khali and Drew McIntyre, the best option for the WWE is to just get rid of Khali, as he is just taking up space on the roster while the company could use the talented McIntyre much better in the future.

In the Mark Henry-Yoshi Tatsu match, you could have told me that Tatsu was fired months ago from the WWE and I would have believed you, since I haven’t seen him in forever on either Raw or SmackDown.

Even though the main event between Y2J and Sheamus ended in a countout victory for Jericho, it would be awesome to see these two superstars go at it in a regular match after the battle they had as the final two participants in the Royal Rumble this past January.

On paper, I think this week was a good show as the WWE continued their streak of strong episodes of SmackDown, building up the feuds on the card for WrestleMania.

So Bleachers, what did you think about this week’s episode of SmackDown as we get closer and closer to WrestleMania 28 in Miami on April 1?
