    - Highlights from the Royal Rumble are shown. Guess who won? Not Roman Reigns. Even though I like the guy, him not retaining the title is what's best for business. There would've been a massive backlash had he retained, obviously. Now, who did win, though?! Well, this guy :Trips3: won! Sorry, couldn't resist! I love that smiley! Hell, I love all HHH smilies!:TripleH:

    - Anyways... The New Day kicks off the show much to the crowd's delight. Actually, no. That was heavily edited, the boos were really loud. It was actually hilarious. Now, the world's famous 2 time champs were upset that The Rock insulted 'em on RAW. That brought out The Miz who was also insulted by The Rock. And yes, of course The Miz had to remind us he main evented WrestleMania. Out come The Usos, boooo! Go away! They mock The Miz for wearing a dress, but then The New Day say that Usos are riding Rocky's coattails and also have an allergy to gold. :lol1: Soo, The Usos call out Titus and DZ, they all get into a brawl and yes, you guessed it... That all leads to THIS...

    - The Usos, Dolph Ziggler & Titus O'Neil vs The New Day & The Miz was a solid show opener. **½
    They got plenty of TV time, around 12 minutes and delivered a solid, fun opening match. Everyone got to look good and the babyfaces win after Titus hits Clash of the Titus on The Miz. Even though I would've preferred The New Day winning here, at least none of the guys got to eat the pin.

    - Kalisto vs Neville was a fun little match. ***
    Just imagine how awesome this match would've been if these two were allowed to do their own, non-watered-down WWE style match.
    Just saying. But yeah, what we got here was fun and fast-paced match, and I loved Mauro saying A SUPER FRANKENSTEINER BY KALISTO!
    The champ retained via Modified Salida del Sol. It looked nice, as Neville tried to hit Kalisto with a Deadlift German Suplex, but Kalisto countered it and that was it for The Man That Gravity Forgot.

    - The Highlight Reel with Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. Jericho puts everyone over and then introduced Ambrose and Reigns, who got him a flower and a wooden stool, respectively. Then, Ambrose said that friends fight over all sort of stuff, and then he and Reigns joked about giving their strategy away and then the Lesnar question was asked. Both Ambrose and Reigns put over Lesnar, but Ambrose said he doesn't have to beat Lesnar, he just has to beat Reigns. Reigns then said Ambrose never defeated him before, and guess who arrived then? The Wyatt Family. We all know what that means...

    Also, I love how they're ignoring what happened at NOC last year with Reigns, Ambrose and Y2J and how it's supposed to be water under the bridge.

    - The #SocialOutcasts are in the ring and they cut a promo. They're upset that everyone is talking about AJ Styles and they're upset that Axel's year-long run in the Royal Rumble has come to an end at the hands of The Phenomenal one. The Axe Man called out AJ Styles, so that he could rip him apart!

    - AJ Styles vs Curtis Axel was decent. **
    The Axe Man got in a little offense, but this was mostly a Styles dominance showcase. He also got to take out all four of the Social Outcasts. Mauro was great here, and man, how I've missed heel Lawler. He went on a rant about IF IT DIDN'T HAPPEN IN WWE, IT DIDN'T HAPPEN AT ALL. And now, last but not least... AJ Styles winning via STYLES CLASH!!!

    - As Ric Flair and Charlotte were shown walking backstage, The King refers to them as 'Power Couple' FATHER AND DAUGHTER, thus making their pairing sooo awkward. Thanks a lot, creepy old man!

    - Charlotte vs Natalya was very mundane. *
    Charlotte defeated Nattie after Ric distracted her with a WOOO!!! What was hilarious, though, or shall I say hilariously bad, was Nattie's selling of Charlotte's Figure Eight. That had me cracking up, she was just lying there, screaming, and not trying to fight it off. Yeah, that really happened. Post-match, Charlotte continued with the attack, but Becky then ran out to make the save and Charlotte ran away.

    - R-Truth and Goldust had a segment again. Yeah, I'm not gonna say anything about that.

    - Chris Jericho, Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns vs The Wyatt Family was the usual, cookie cutter SmackDown main event. **
    Granted, it wasn't bad. But, it was nothing to write home about. It ended via DQ. Who cares. We've seen it all a thousand times before. Nothing happened here. Now, to cap it all off and piss me off even more, the show ends with a run-in by the Lord of Irrelevance, Da Big Show, who by the way got a Steve Austin pop :Roddy: and would go on to dump Strowman out of the ring and then the rest of the family would get taken out by Ambrose, Reigns and Y2J. The babyfaces celebrate to end SmackDown. But, WTF are they celebrating? I do not know. Stay tuned for Monday Night RAW, where Ambrose, Reigns, Y2J & Big Show will face The Wyatt Family in a 8-Man Tag Team main event!

    All in all, not an episode to watch all the way through. But, Mauro Ranallo makes everything better! I love the guy! Kalisto vs Neville and Styles vs Axel were true highlights, and the opening match was quite solid. If you're looking to cherry-pick from this week's show, there's your stuff.

    Oh, and @Snowman ... If you're wondering what the hell's got into Prince Bálor to write a long-ass review of SmackDown... Here's your answer...
