Ziggler ending off SmackDown. Nice.
This actually sounds like it could be better than the RAW this week.. I mean I know the whole DB thing is desperate sounding but seriously this could be a rare opportunity for SD to be >> then RAW.
This could actually be decent, but I know it will likely become another meh, typical/10 episode. Shocker.
However, The 20-man battle royal, Wyatt's promo, A New Day debut and Harper vs Ziggler should be worth checking out.
This sounds exactly like Raw but even shittier. Hey, let's bring DB in for no reason to book a bunch of pointless matches!!!
i wanna see Dorky Kaen
I hope Ryback DESTROYS Kane at TLC.. no DQs better come up during that match..
In addition to the OP:
This SmackDown episode would've been much better if this match 'tween Wyatt and Ambrose was televised. But, I guess they're saving it up for TLC. Ambrose getting the win here over Wyatt may as well mean that he'll get it at TLC, but I'm not completely sure about that yet, he may get screwed out of the victory there (prolly by The Ascension). Just a feeling, but we'll see.
I hope they don't get involved but then again if they did it wouldn't hurt Dean's credibility too much if any at all seeing as it would call for him having to get jumped by Bray's goons.. If this happens at TLC I can see (but not expect the creative team to do so)Roman Reigns and Cena coming out to make the save/clear the ring and then set up a Dean/Reigns/Cena vs Bray/The Ascension ME on the RAW that follows TLC.
I have a feeling somebody is going to get involved, The Ascension, possibly... To further cement and then end Wyatt/Ambrose feud at the Royal Rumble. That's just me, though.
Speaking of Reigns and Cena coming out to make the save and then set up a 6 man tag team match on RAW the following night... Yeah, why not? That'd sit well with me.
Reigns said he'd be back by/at TLC next month, so, it's a plausible scenario that he and Cena would get involved to save Ambrose.
It's also rumored that WWE's considering another big match for TLC... And that is Cena vs Orton vs Rollins in a Triple-Threat match, that'll be the case if Lesnar vs Cena doesn't happen. Either way, it looks like Rollins will be in the Tables, Ladders & Chairs match. If the three-way doesn't happen, the other option being considered is Rollins vs. Orton.
I wouldn't label RAW being better than Smackdown at all.
However, because the results and outcomes of every of angle of Smackdown is far too predictable.
The moment and angle begins on Smackdown, I can tell you precisely what will happen at the end of it long before it happens.
RAW is inferior but still retains elements of unpredictability.
I don't get the hate SmackDown gets, it's such a unique show.
I do. It's predictable.
Teddy Long ruined it by throwing dogsh*t tag matches at the end of each program.
Vickie ruined it by ensuring the heels had such a predictable numbers advantage.
I understand she was heel, but this was literally how each SD had been since a bit after Eddie Guerreo died.
I guarantee you SD has a format. They may tweak it a tad here and there but every show is laid out probably a year or so in advance.
The names change and the booking alters slightly but the show overall, remains stagnant largely.
The way Ziggler is being used is impressive, however.
I totally agree. Plus, I was being so sarcastic in my previous post, bro. The smell of turkey must've somehow taken your smell for sarcasm.
leftovers from last night and smackdown
Watching this right now. Will rate/review it later.
i couldnt watch it i was in the ER all night
Just done watching this. Yup. Typical/10
- The 20-Man Battle Royal for the US title was rather decent. Mizdow stole the show again, though (by eliminating himself). What a boss!
- Wyatt's promo.
- Rollins vs Ryback was decent. Too bad that DQ Fest, Part 47 had to continue.
- I liked The New Day vignette, as well as their debut. Hey, this thing may not be bad after all.
- Harper vs Ziggler was good, these two always deliver.
- That whole openning segment was... Well, thank God for D-Bry coming out and interrupting Big Show's cringe-worthy promo.
Negatives + the 'Why God, why is this crap on TV?' segment:
- Everything else.
Darkness falls on a New Day? Bring it. Looks like we'll be getting Gold & Stardust vs The New Day.
Also, when asked by Renee if he'll be back soon, D-Bry replied with 'Yes!'. I hope 'soon' means the Royal Rumble or just in time before WM31.
