  2. Half ass SmackDown as usual. What really is the point of having 2 different recap shows for RAW? Main Event is an hour long yet it only has a maximum 3 matches with nothing but recaps in between. SmackDown is just a rematch show from RAW. You see the exact same lower card matches from RAW on SmackDown because I'm guessing the bookers are to tired to conjure up another "Great Match."
  3. "Smackdown: The weekly show dedicated to punching Miz in the face" has a very nice ring to it.
  4. SmackDown: "You saw Fandango get distracted on RAW? You'll see him get distracted on SmackDown :jericho:"

    Has a better ring to it.
  5. So as some suspected, the Randy Orton/Roman Reigns feud is continuing. One month ago, I would have hated seeing this rivalry continue past Summerslam but Orton has really stepped it up in recent weeks and reverting a lot more back to his old Viper persona has helped make their bad blood more personal. Their Summerslam match was 10x better than I was expecting it to be. Plus, being honest, Orton IS a former multi-time world champion, Royal Rumble winner and Wrestlemania main eventer among other things. It's probably best if Reigns doesn't just blow through him in one month like he's just any other disposable adversary. Make Orton look like a competent opponent so that Reigns going over him twice actually means something.

    If handled correctly, I can live with this feud lasting till the rubber match inside the cell in October. Reigns/HHH can be saved for Survivor Series, or if they book it properly enough, maybe even all the way to next year's Wrestlemania.
  6. Pretty generic, like always. Good to hear Cesaro's on the winning side again, though.

    The Wyatts lost, again? Really? The burial has started. Ignorant WWE. It's only a matter of time before another great faction like The Wyatt Family is dismantled with no good explanation.
  7. Not a terrible Smackdown.
    The Divas are showing intensity, which is unusual.

  8. They haven't a clue what to do with The Wyatts other than bury them. It's a shame, considering the crowds actually seem to give 2 shits about 'em.
  9. Are you under the impression the Wyatt's are penciled in to be big players in WWE's future?

  10. No one carries a show like orton
  11. Watching this episode right now. Hopefully it doesn't put me to sleep. Good to see Tom Phillips on commentary, btw. It's a refreshment, since Cole is so annoying...
  12. Was an okay episode of Smackdown, glad I didn't watch it live because I had better things to do but still an alright episode.
  13. It was decent. 5/10

    Rollins won

    Good match 'tween the weirdos that I love. The Dust bros and The Wyatts
