WWE Smackdown Live Reaction - What A Joke. Smh.
Check out my great, good, bad, and pathetic from Tuesday night's edition of Smackdown Live.
Nothing. There was nothing great about this show. Nothing great at all. It was a bad show if you ask me. First time in the history of my reviews I can truly say that there was nothing great on a wrestling show I review. Nothing.
- I liked the intensity and emotion Miz showed in his promo, after Ziggler tried to make fun of him for actually caring that he lost the title on Sunday. Miz has really been great lately, and honestly, he should be wrestling for the World title at this rate.
- Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon issued a challenge to Raw for a 5-on-5 elimination match, pitting the 5 best singles wrestlers on each brand against each other. They also issued separate challenges to Raw for a tag team elimination match and a women’s elimination match.
- Naomi is in the title picture, which to me is a great thing.
- Explain to me what the hell is going on. The Uso's have lost twice now to Slater and Rhyno, when clearly the real title program should be Uso's vs American Alpha. But instead these two teams are still feuding over nothing and American Alpha are just spinning their wheels. When they came in, it was very clear they were the best team on the brand, and the company has done everything to bury them and make them just another team. Guess what, they succeeded. They lose all the time and this lost for Gable vs the Uso was another example of terrible booking. This is really getting frustrating.
- But they are building a feud between the Hype Bros and the Ascension?
- If I never see Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt in the same ring, it will be too soon. I'm over this so much. Disappearing acts in wrestling suck.
Some shit just should never happen. We all know wrestling is fake, OK, but there should be some realism when it comes to your main event title story line. So after defeating Ambrose and Cena on Sunday in a three way, and beating both individually over the past few months, the bright idea to make the champion look even stronger was to have him lose a match to James Ellsworth. That's right, a scrub. Now of course, it wasn't clean and he was screwed left and right by Ambrose, but to me it doesn't matter. It happened. It makes Styles into a complete joke. And it wasn't just the fact that he lost, but how he lost. Styles tapped out on Sunday when Cena and Ambrose had him in a double submission. So you have that visual that they drove home gain last night. So what does that say? He's not a deserving champion. Next, so only is he pinned by Ellsworth, but he loses due to a regular Dirty Deeds DDT, and when Ellsworth pinned him, Styles didn't kick out just after the three then give the surpised shocked reaction. No, he laid there out cold, like he was dead. Your world champion was booked like a jobber. Would have never happened to someone they saw as a big deal, you know, like HHH. This was pathetic.
