Glad there's a Women's Rumble, but the whole announcement and segment was unbelievably stupid. So, after a large brawl they just all of a sudden put their differences aside because "progress"? Not to mention said "progress" is after years of being booked like shit and being treated like afterthoughts. God bless Stephanie McMahon, creator of all that is good in women's wrestling.

I haven't seen the segment, and from what I read here, I'm glad I haven't. Reeks of Stephy's Women's Revolutiontm bullshit. Can't they just announce a Royal Rumble for the women wrestler as part of, ya know, pro-rasslin' ?

Because just like it's WWE Canon that Vince save pro wrestling from smoke filled arenas, so shall it be that Steph single handedly saved women from the dredges of bra & panties matches and butterfly belts.

Even though the match will probably have 20 entrants and 30 second intervals.

That wouldn't necessarily be the worst thing, It's not like we need two hour plus battle royals on one show.

The worst part was that it wrecked a perfectly good Elias segment.

Itami botching the tornado DDT stun gun he does while Corey Graves puts over how he has a ton of innovative moves and Michael Cole saying like this mid botch was hilarious.

I felt sad, tbh. Even more considering how he slipped when doing a kick like seconds afterward. Thank goodness he has one of the best finishers to keep him somewhat over.

I've wondered since he had the injury in NXT, was his shoulder that messed up or did the doctors do an Ultimo Dragon on him? It doesn't seem like he's been right ever since.

This week's SD was surprisingly uneventful. When are they going to capitalize on a big Rusev push?

Yeah they really delivered a placeholder show tonight. Nothing new was really teased.

Well, usually the last couple of shows before the New Year are uneventful. I'm expecting things to pick up around January 8 when the Holidays will be over.

It's amazing just how many boring guys are clogging up the Smackdown card - Owens, Zayn, Orton, Ziggler, Roode, Corbin - when there are guys like Rusev, Big E, Harper and even Mojo Rawley just waiting to be pushed as stars and provide fresh matches at the top of the card. Those are the types of guys you'd expect Vince to want to push as well. Priorities are all wrong,

I hope Dolph’s quitting promo was a shoot.

Smackdown has been really skippable post-Survivor Series.

I'd replace Corbin with Nakamura on that list but otherwise I agree 100%. I actually could have gotten behind underdog Sami Zayn if he wrestled that great underdog match that he's seemingly only wrestled about 35% of the time in WWE (the other 65% being 50/50 indie workrate matches) but heel Sami does absolutely nothing for me.

There *has* to be something going on backstage with Corbin.  Like I mentioned a few days ago i've never seen a guy go back and forth from pushed-buried-pushed-buried so much.  I'm not even saying it's political but clearly there are people with power backstage who have differing opinions of him.  Of course he wasn't even on TV last night 2 days after losing his title.  Next he'll probably be AJ's new contender.  That's how it always goes with him

WWE doesn't have a good track record when it comes to holiday themed matches. However, the New Day/Rusev build up and match were both fun. Best Christmas themed match since Mark Henry saved Christmas!

Jason Jordan will be replacing Ambrose on the house shows teaming with Rollins

 

 

according to pro wrestling sheet the female wrestlers didn't know about the Rumble announcement till Steph made it on the air.  They wanted the reactions to be genuine

Agreed it is very strange. Start of the year he looks like a total badass being the guy that wipes out Strowman in the Rumble then he's at Mania losing to Ambrose on the preshow. Wins MITB and we know how that turned out followed by being demolished in the Cena feud. Took a clean loss to Tye Dillinger for whatever reason. Wins the US title, retains against AJ clean in a solid main event then proceeds to start losing weekly to Sin Cara. Gets the big win over Miz only to drop the US immediately after. I had thought Corbin/Roode had a lot of potential as a feud. Sucks, I think Corbin could be a top star.. with his current theme music his presentation does come off like a star but the booking just won't follow.
