WWE SmackDown – Review, Highlights & Analysis From 13/12/12016

After James Ellsworth showed up sick to work and was prevented from facing AJ Styles, courtesy of the flu, the show took a much more interesting direction. Some new faces got a shot at the top and it was a much needed change of scenery. What happened last night? Let’s talk SmackDown!

Miz TV

When Miz told AJ Styles that he was above his level, it made me go “Oh, WOW!” Leave it to the A-lister to deliver a punch line like that. I love Miz’s confidence and the way his hard work has been paying off lately. He deserves to be where he is –  in the spotlight.

It was a pleasant surprise to see Luke Harper enter the picture. Some attention after his return is good. I was expecting him to go after the IC title, not the World title but for now, that works as well.

The one person who can’t get that shot on the last SDLive of 2016 is Ambrose. We’ve had too much of AJ vs. Ambrose. We need a break from this feud.

Carmella def. Natalya

Carmella is getting better and better in the ring, I must say. With the way she plays her character, she has become one of the brightest stars in the SmackDown Women’s Division.

Natty is denying these allegations too rigorously and Nikki is too unwilling to believe it was Natalya, so in the end, the attacker might end up being Natty after all. I was starting to suspect an underlying twist but the way things are going, the storyline will be straightforward.

Nikki, for all her years in the WWE, is still terrible at acting. How could she possibly be that fake in every exchange?!

Tag Team #1 Contender’s Battle Royal

This was one of my favourite segments of the night. The big names in the division didn’t get as much time in the ring as the lower card guys and that was yet another brilliant way of giving talent a chance to stand out. Well done, Team Blue!

Rhyno’s elimination, apart from furthering the break up of the Beauty and the Manbeast, allowed Slater to shine. I’ve never seen Heath that impressive. He stood his ground like a champ for a long time.

Fandango might have gone before Tyler Breeze but Dango had the most realistic-looking elimination. Tyler Breeze, on the other hand, delivered the most beautiful elimination when he kicked Jason Jordan out of the way in the most spectacular fashion.

Prince Pretty played smart and lasted a long time. It took three consecutive elimination attempts to get rid of him and when Konnor finally pushed him out, the crowd booed. Breezango could be big, if given the chance.

The Hype Bros were the obvious winners when you look at the final three because they were the only face team left and the champs are heel. However, The Ascension vs. The Wyatt Family sounded like a much better feud. What if they are both heel, they’d try to outheel each other and it would be great!

Becky Lynch def. Alexa Bliss

Bliss tried to run away and the faked out an injury to get out of the actual fight. I know she’s heel but antics ala The Miz usually get quite tiresome very quickly. I expected something different from Alexa’s reign. I thought Bliss would be more of a fighting fury.

I’m not feeling the Bliss vs. Lynch feud. Something’s missing. Their matches are good but the rivalry feels weak.

Dolph Ziggler def. Dean Ambrose, The Miz & Luke Harper

The main event was great! No man was left behind. Everyone looked outstanding.

The way Ambrose eliminated the Miz was perfection. It was a case of what goes around, comes around and it felt god to see the A-lister taste his own medicine.

It made me laugh when Ambrose was trying to pull off some fancy spins on the apron and Luke Harper just floored him. Harper took the opportunity that was given to him and ran with it. I was rooting for him to win all along. Harper vs. Styles would be a dream match. However, realistically, you can’t expect to have the disciple in the main event while the master is a tag team champ.

What Miz was trying to do in the end is beyond me. I know what happened but Miz’s actual intentions  – I don’t know. His interference made no sense. He doesn’t like both guys, why help either of them? Plot convenience – that’s why!

Ziggler will make a good opponent for AJ Styles. It will be a beautiful match and Ziggler will lose it in a spectacular way. It’s predictable but it will be a nice piece of wrestling to watch.

WWE SmackDown – Review, Highlights & Analysis From 06/12/2016

You were promised to see two championship defences on SmackDown and you got them; just not the ones you expected. How did the Blue Brand deal with the aftermath of TLC? Here’s what happened and my review on it! Let’s talk SDLive!

AJ Styles/ James Ellsworth/ Dean Ambrose

Despite my creeping annoyance with the James Ellsworth angle, I couldn’t help but laugh at the dramatic video package, depicting the Ambrose/Styles/Ellsworth feud. The situation is so ridiculous at the moment that it’s hard to take it seriously. That might be what the WWE are aiming for.

Ambrose did the most natural thing – took Ellsworth out. This way AJ Styles didn’t have to compete that night, which gave the champ some time to get his ankle injury fixed. It was a genuinely good way to work around the problem.

The Wyatt Family def. Rhyno & Heath Slater

That was total domination on the part of the Wyatt Family. Orton and Wyatt manhandled their opponents in such unquestionable manner that it’s difficult to imagine how the rest of the division will have any chance of success whatsoever.

It’s a shame that Rhyno and Heath won’t stay a team after that. On Talking Smack, Rhyno walked out on his partner. I struggle to see either one of them with a good solo career after that. Rhyno is too old for a push and Heath is, well, Heath. The WWE’s always used him as a jobber.

Carmella/Natalya

Carmella blamed Natalya and Natalya denied being behind the attack. I thought it was Natty all along but the way this angle is starting to play out, I won’t be shocked if it turns out to be someone completely unrelated like Eva Marie, for example.

Nikki and Natty’s acting backstage was so cringe-worthy. The exchange couldn’t have looked more fake if they tried.

The Hype Bros def. The Ascension

New face paint, new promos and then another loss. Why do I even bother hoping for the Ascension? Even the brand split didn’t help these two.

I can see the Hype Bros getting a mini push, in order to feed them to the Wyatt Family after that. I definitely don’t see Ryder & Mojo champs though.

Miz TV

Miz played the devil’s advocate here but he had a point. Realistically, Ambrose did use Ellsworth for his own goals.

The participation award cracked me up. I think they tried to make it as cheap-looking as possible, I see no other explanation because normally the Miz would have it look all sleek and glamorous.

Booking Ambrose vs. Miz for the IC title? It was a good way to give the fans a title match as promised, even though AJ Styles couldn’t wrestle that night.

Baron Corbin def. Kalisto

Oh, wow. Baron Corbin just destroyed Kalisto. At some point before TLC, I was beginning to think that this was all about making Kalisto stand out but I was wrong. The Lone Wolf is the only winner in this feud.

Why invest in Corbin so much though? Could he be in the mix for the WWE World Championship? I wouldn’t mind seeing that after the Ellsworth angle is over.

Chad Gable def. Tyler Breeze

Gable owned Tyler Breeze. It was an interesting match because we hadn’t seen it before but the outcome was predictable.

I was hoping that Breezango would get something out of this gimmick change but apparently not, unless you count jobbing in slightly longer matches as an improvement.

After this match I’d expect to see Fandnago vs. the Cable jokes flood the internet. If they don’t it would only show how little popularity Dango has.

Alexa Bliss/ Becky Lynch

Ha! That actually was a good exchange. It wasn’t long but it was emotionally charged. My problem is that Becky isn’t very believable. She talks a lot but she has been booked to lose so many times that her words lost value.

Alexa will be a good heel champion. She’ll bring to the title what Miz brought to his.

The Miz def. Dean Ambrose

The main event wasn’t great. I don’t think the Miz and Dean Ambrose complement each other in the ring. The effect was that Ambrose oversold Miz’s offence and it killed any suspense.

Ambrose is too big of a star to be beaten by the Maryse factor. However, it was Ellsworth again who cost him the match. I can’t say I didn’t see that coming. It just had to happen.

Ellsworth was fun in the begging but the plot is getting thinner and thinner every week. It has to end before the fans lose all interest in the story.

WWE SmackDown – Review, Highlights & Analysis From 29/11/2016

Last SmackDown before TLC and the atmosphere is intense! Contract signing, disqualifications and a high-risk spots- that’s all on the card. Let’s talk SmackDown!

Alexa Bliss/Becky Lynch

This was a good contract signing. Both women felt comfortable on the microphone and the conversation flowed. The crowd was engaged, reacting to every jab exchanged between the girls.

This might have been Becky’s best segment as a champ. She was all fire and intensity. She was the active party, going after Alexa. Things might not have gone her way but the champ looked great.

Alexa Bliss was standing tall at the end of the segment but she barely escaped. Bliss will need more than that to defeat Becky at  TLC.

Kalisto & Dolph Ziggler  def. The Miz and Baron Corbin /DQ/

The animosity between the men on both sides was almost tangible. It felt nothing like a tag team match. That was just two separate pairs of feuding guys, trying to destroy each other whenever they could.

Miz and Ziggler were relentless. Their rivalry has been on for a while now but every time they get in the ring together they bring out so much passion, it’s hard not to get dragged into the action.

Kalisto was incredible. Where has this quality been all this time? The WWE surely knows how to waste talent. I’m glad he’s getting a push now.

Carmella/Nikki Bella

Carmella used Nikki’s relationship with John Cena again but this time it didn’t work out as well. The promo wasn’t as strong and you could hear it in the crowd’s reaction. The fans were barely responding throughout the segment.

Nikki coming out full force onto Carmella was good though. It was a catfight without any fancy moves and in this occasion it worked. After all, this is about a woman, talking smack about another woman’s relationship. This kind of a brawl is what you’d expect to see. Well done.

Ambrose Asylum

The Ambrose Asylum turned out to be a really bad place to be for James Ellsworth. AJ Styles completely and utterly destroyed Ellsworth. Props to James, he takes a lot of hits and difficult spots. That Styles clash might have just killed him. He’s working for that jobber’s contract.

Before the beat-down took place, an interesting topic was raised. Does Ellsworth really want Ambrose to win? My guess would be that Ellsworth will cost Ambrose the match at TLC. The only question is whether it will be on purpose or not.

At the end of the show, this segment got its continuation with a backstage brawl between AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose, in which the Lunatic Fringe wiped the floor with the champ.

This is the Ambrose we want to see – deranged, reckless and angry. Dean is a funny guy but the fans want to watch him toss people over sofas and break stuff.

Kane def. Luke Harper

Kane is becoming a constant force on SmackDown. He’s consistently winning matches and it’s good to have a menacing force, lurking in the background.

However, this match might have been the start of something much bigger. Before the fight, Randy Orton questioned Harper’s capabilities. We can already see how the Viper will plant the seeds of destruction inside the Wyatt Family.

The Wyatt Family def. American Alpha

Sadly, American Alpha didn’t stand a chance. We didn’t get to see much of the Gable magic that the fans love so much. Gable and Jordan only barely survived until it was all over.

Luke Harper and Randy Orton both got involved to deliver the pin to Bray. The leader got all the glory and he was delighted. However, this is only the quiet before the storm.

At TLC, The New Wyatt Family will defeat Slater and Rhyno. It was a good fairy tale until it lasted but the focus will now be on the Wyatt/Orton run as champs and the eventual break down of the Wyatt Family, caused by the scheming of the Viper.

WWE SmackDown – Review, Highlights & Analysis From 22/11/2016

Team SmackDown focused on the Superstars’ victory at Survivor Series and took actions to solve the inner issues that threatened the team. Aaand James Ellsworth got a WWE World Championship opportunity. How did it all happen? Let’s talk SmackDown!

Shane/Ambrose/Ellsworth/Styles

Shane reprimanded Ambrose for briefly joining the Shield but it was more of a slap on the wrist, rather than a serious punishment. That’s the problem when you’re a “nice guy” type of a boss – people don’t listen.

AJ Styles decided to pick on James Ellsworth again. However, in all honesty, AJ made sense. Many guys who train their whole lives never get even close to the WWE and there’s Ellsworth, who miraculously lands a contract out of the blue.

Ellsworth asking for a championship shot is a bit over the top. It was a long way coming but still, it’s pushing the boundaries a bit. I’m sure there are guys who can actually wrestle who could benefit from that opportunity.

Miz def. Kalisto

Ever since he returned, Kalisto has been so impressive every time he enters the ring. He deserves a title and a good run. Unlike last time he was given the gold, he needs to get promo time and actually wrestle.

Corbin ruined it for Kalisto again. I thought it would have been a nice storyline shift if the Kalisto/Corbin rivalry got mixed up with the IC title and the gold was carried by one of them. However, Ziggler made his presence felt and broke my sand castle.

Miz/Ziggler has been good till now. I have no complaints. However, dragging it out for too long will make it boring, regardless of what the guys do in the ring or on the mic.

Tag Team Turmoil

Most of the matches were short and quick. The two teams, who actually had a wrestling match were The Usos and American Alpha, which is no surprise, since they are the two top teams in the division.

The eliminations went as follows:

  1. The Hype Bros def. The Ascension
  2. Breezango def. The Hype Bros
  3. American Alpha def. Breezango
  4. American Alpha def. The Vaudevillains
  5. American Alpha def. The Usos

My problem with this tournament was that we’ve seen all these matches before with the exact same outcome. Hype Bros will always go over Ascension. Breezango have the crowd but still no vote of confidence from the Creative. The Vaudevillains only come out to lose. And the Usos are badass but always come up short in the end.

I love American Alpha. However, faced with the Wyatt Family they stand no chance. The Wyatts are above the tag team level and by the looks of it Randy is still on the “I’m devoted to Bray” act. I’d be astonished if Gable and Jordan came on top next week.

On a side note, did anyone else notice Rhyno’s new facial hair? Rusev is becoming a trend-setter in male fashion in the WWE and that’s a sentence I never thought I’d say.

Becky Lynch def. Natalya

This actually was a good, technical match. It wasn’t flashy but as pure wrestling, timing and fluidity of movement, it was nice to see.

Unfortunately, the match lacked atmosphere. I like Becky. She’s great in the ring but I don’t feel her as a champion. Her character should be out there but it’s very mild in reality. Her reign has been fairly bland.

Alexa Bliss, on the other hand, is a fire cracker. She has so much personality, it’s impressive. I think she should have the championship.

Baron Corbin vs. Kane

This was a punishment match for Corbin. Again, not a very effective punishment from the SmackDown leaders.

I’m very pleased with how Kane is treated by the Blue Brand. He looks intimidating without taking centre stage.

Kalisto flew in out of nowhere. Good work from the cameramen, the angle made Kalisto’s attack that much more exciting.

This feud is going great. Not only did Kalisto attack fiercely, but even when a chair was involved, Baron Corbin was still willing to get back in the ring. Both won’t back down and it makes for a suspenseful rivalry.

James Ellsworth def. AJ Styles

After being chased out of the building, Ambrose had more TV time than when he’s meant to be on the show. It was hilarious watching him play on Shane’s nerves until Shane himself left. There was no way this wouldn’t culminate with an appearance from the Lunatic Fringe in the main event.

Despite losing to Ellsworth AGAIN, Styles isn’t portrayed as week. There actually is moral to the story. He could have won easily but he wanted to bully Ellsworth and took his time to taunt him. Essentially, being a jerk cost him the match.

Also, Ellsworth was booked to look better than he should. He could have taken the open lane to the top, Ambrose provided but he lingered on and got rid of AJ on his own. That was so unbelievable, it got the crowd cheering.

Ellsworth vs. Styles for the title will be yet another joke of a match. Ellsworth cannot win. Imagine this guy’s name in the list of WWE champions, even if AJ’s to invoke a rematch close and get the belt back 15 sec later.

WWE SmackDown – Review, Highlights &Analysis From 15/11/2016

RAW seemed to have done a great job at preparing us for Survivor Series but then came #SDLive900 and totally stole the show! Not only did we get to see a good deal of the different SD teams in action but also got a blockbuster announcement from the Undertaker himself. SmackDown truly brought it. Here’s my review!

Miz def. Dolph Ziggler

I was just thinking that this was a nice match, another one in the brilliant series between Ziggler and the Miz. I wasn’t expecting anything exceptional to happen, knowing that the title is defended this Sunday at Survivor Series. Needless to say, I was surprised to see the A-lister win.

This is a bold move, which shows that SmackDown is unpredictable. It also opens up possibilities for future storylines. If Sami Zayn wins, there will be two SD superstars, asking for rematches, possibly going to a Triple Threat at TLC. Things just got even more exciting.

Kalisto def. ???

Kalisto’s on a roll. He’s made to look like a beast; not a midget underdog, who struggles to survive, no – a dangerous, brutal fighter. He’s being prepped to take out Brian Kendrick on Sunday.

The only thing that could prevent Kalisto from brining the cruiserweights to SmackDown is Baron Corbin. I’m afraid the Lone Wolf might make an appearance at Survivor Series after all and take his revenge on Kalisto.

Carmella vs. Nikki Bella

It was a good match in a good feud and I enjoyed watching but bringing the women’s teams in took the segment to a different level.

Nia Jax took herself out but if she doesn’t do anything stupid on Sunday, she’ll be a threat. Naomi impressed me. Her balance on the ropes was brilliantly dangerous.

I do hope that the women of SmackDown will win but it seems more plausible that Team RAW will prevail.

Tag Team SD def. The Vaudevillains, The Ascension, Spirit Squad & The Headbangers  

This is something we didn’t see on RAW. The actual Tag Team Blue assembled to face off the rest of the division and it actually worked out well.

The team spirit was strong. The entire team stood up for Ryder when he was in a pinch with the Ascension and after the match, the Usos, despite being heel were celebrating with the rest. Team Blue seem to be on the same page and that could bring them victory.

Also, props to SD for keeping the rest of the teams in a good position. Team SD could have easily squashed their opponents but actually, The Ascension and the Vaudevillains, in particular, stood out and looked strong in defeat.

Cutting Edge

Team SmackDown is so amusing to watch. All the inner feuds are entertaining and I can’t wait to see them evolve at TLC.

However, the true blockbuster came with the Undertaker. Most had already heard he was going to be on #SDLive900 but no one expected him to announce that he was coming back full time. That was a shocker!

The one thing that could have made this segment even more shocking would have be to have Taker ask for Shane’s spot on the team. That, however, would have left Team Raw with zero chances of success, so it might have been smart to keep things as they are.

WWE RAW – Review, Highlights & Analysis From 14/11/2016

This was the best RAW in a long time and it was partially because the SmackDown roster took part in it. The show did a great job of hyping Survivor Series and delivered the quality we want to see every week. Let’s talk RAW!

Owens & Reigns def. Cesaro & Sheamus

It’s no surprise that the teams were put down in favour of the singles competitors. This was a persistent, reoccurring trend throughout the night. The goal was to make the main Team RAW look more credible because SD already is the fan favourite.

Reigns was made out to look the strongest. That also was a reoccurring theme last night. The fans didn’t appreciate it that much.

Sami Zayn def. Bo Dallas

Well, I guess that’s it for the pseudo push of Bo Dallas. He got squashed by Sami so quickly I almost missed the match.

I don’t know if this helped Zayn as much as it was intended. Bo never had any credibility, so beating him easily is not the most valuable accomplishment to put under your belt. Then again it shows that the WWE wants to make some sort of an effort to make Sami look like he has a chance.

On that note, Sami should win if in exchange Kalisto beats Kendrick.

Jericho, Rollins & Strowman def. The New Day

Jericho made the formation of this trio incredibly funny in a backstage segment. In the ring, he was also the one to tell the story. Y2J is a legend!

Strowman was made to look like a beast. He’s never been that dominant in his entire career. However, it might have been a bit of an overkill. After all, the New Day ARE the champions and the team captains of the Tag Team RAW. What does this say about the team?

The only silver lining for the tag teams is that at least both the champs and the number one contenders looked bad. At least, the balance is still there…I guess.

Brian Kendrick def. Sin Cara

There was no way the champ was losing to Sin Cara. Kendrick lost too many matches and his victories were too dubious to allow for another.

The entire division is against Kendrick. They actually seem to want him to lose at Survivor Series and the WWE Universe agrees. SmackDown will make things better for the cruiserweights, I have no doubt about it.

Goldberg/Lesnar

The segment was disappointing because it didn’t end with a fight but realistically, it was a smart move. The WWE could not afford to blow the first physical exchange between Lesnar and Godlberg so close to the PPV.

As much as the fans root for Goldberg, he most probably will lose. Lesnar is viewed as the main money-bringer and this match seems to be one big marketing move for the WWE’s latest game.

Sasha Banks & Charlotte def. Nia Jax & Alicia Fox

Nia Jax fails to make the same effort as Braun Strowman. I keep making parallels between the two because they have the same role in their respective divisions. There’s something she’s lacking although she gets the same treatment as him and I can’t put my finger on it.

Sasha and Charlotte worked well together and that’s not that surprising. They used to be in a stable once. Really, even as things stand right now, their team might be more functional than the SD Women’s Team.

Gallows, Anderson, Enzo & Cass def. The Golden Truth & The Shining Stars

Why did Primo trick his way into the ring if it was only to get squashed in seconds? It was ridiculous.

Then, Gallows and Anderson teased Ezno and it was meant to make them look more annoying and hateable. However, I have the feeling that by this point, no one cares about Enzo and Cass or the Club anymore, so it all flopped.

Looking at this, I can’t picture the tag teams of RAW going over SD’s teams.

Team RAW/Team SmackDown

This segment made the whole show worth watching. Although on the WWE’s YouTube channel, the full segment isn’t featured, all the promos were fun to listen to.

With all the other commotion, I had completely missed how cool the clash between Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman can be. It adds more flair to the match, for certain. Also, Randy Orton suddenly made Strowman look less big and less intimidating. The Viper has some superpowers.

The Shield combo at the end was designed to deflect the boos that Roman Reigns was getting for looking indestructible again. The WWE knows that the fans will always cheer for the Shield.

Team SD left with their tale between their legs but it all happened on RAW, so it’s understandable. Yet, I still think Team SD should win at Survivor Series.

WWE SmackDown – Review, Highlights & Analysis From 08/11/2016

Team SmackDown made some major changes last night and the stakes got even higher. Also, the CW division might be coming to the Blue Brand. What else happened last night? Let’s talk SmackDown!

Team SmackDown

Team SmackDown assembled and the atmosphere was more light-hearted than the one on RAW. There still are feuds on the team itself but the tone of the show is more on the side of fun, so the segment followed.

There was a lot of focus on Corbin. He stood out because he bowed to no one. He’s what Braun Strowman is to the RAW  team. It was good to see Corbin show character before being taken off the team.

Having Ellsworth at Survivor Series is yet another proof that SmackDown is the show of opportunities and the fans loved it.

Breezango def. The Vaudevillains

Finally! Finally the day has come when the fashion police duo made it to the SmackDown live broadcast!

The match was short and it left the feeling that the teams could have given more time, instead of being rushed. However, on the bright side, Breezango finally got the spotlight they deserve and will have a spot at Survivor Series.

It seemed like Breezango were tweeners last night. Although they still act heel, they got jumped by the Vaudevillains and got cheered by the crowd for winning. They have so much potential.

Naomi def. Natalya

I’m not sure where this is leading. Natalya is so devoted to her role as a coach that she let it get in the way of her victory. Where could this go? Natalya getting frustrated and causing her team to lose at Survivor Series, maybe?

I think the pin was an overkill. Natalya should have lost by countout and it would have had the same effect.

Baron Corbin vs. Kalisto

Interesting segment. Corbin got taken out of Survivor Series but this actually made things better for him because it would have been one PPV performance followed by nothing. Now, Corbin has a rivalry on his hands and that will keep him in the spotlight for longer. At the same time, Kalisto got a push upon his return. Double win.

As for Kalisto, I sure hope he brings the Cruiserweight Division to SmackDown. The Blue Brand’s Creative team will do a much better job than RAW’s.

Becky Lynch def. Alexa Bliss

Another unorthodox booking on Smackdown. The villain was the better performer and got cheated out of the victory. Way to mix things up! This feud is getting more and more interesting.

Alexa Bliss is a brilliant heel. It makes one wonder how so much aggression can fit in such a small person.

Curt Hawkins def. Apollo Crews

I had forgotten Apollo Crews was on the roster. This guy’s in-ring work is out of this world but his character is so bland, it’s perfectly forgettable.

And Hawkins actually won a match. I thought that might never happen. Then again, he’s officially hit jobber status and no one cares about his matches now. Sorry.

The Wyatt Family def. Kane, Ambrose & Ellsworth

The main event this week wasn’t as entertaining as the main events of the past few weeks, although it still featured Ellsworth.

There was no real team work on the face side, so the match felt a bit disjointed. It was a case of the face superstars taking a beating one after the other, setting up for an Ellsworth failure.

Shane McMahon as an active member of Team SmackDown is a bold move. Populistic, even. If you weren’t certain that Team Blue is what you are meant to support, this confirmed it.
