Three weeks in and the new look SD has been nothing more than decent to be honest. It's certainly better than it was but it's probably only been a little better than average despite the huge influx of talent.

Maybe it really was Road Dog's fault

The last time I consistently watched any WWE, it was strictly SmackDown from the beginning of the new brand split up through that Mania when the Bray/Randy shit took over the show. And then they were ruined with the shakeup.

Wasn't there another key writer involved with SD throughout that time though? I know Road Dogg was still in the creative mix (and getting most of the credit at the actual time), but I *know* I've heard another name tossed around in retrospect. Former NXT writer iirc..?

Yeah, Raw has suffered some, but it's still the better show thus far. Considering that they don't have to go three hours and they have a stacked roster, they should blow Raw away.

What's Bryan doing tonight?

His chest was such a mess after the GRRE the doctors won't let him perform. (For real.)

 

 

You do know that Bryan worked the dark match vs Nakamura after 205 Live, right?

That's the one.

Thanks. Whatever happened to him..?

Feels like WWE has no idea what they want to do with Daniel Bryan. Admittedly, part of that is likely that they aren't sure how his health will hold up over the long haul. The thing that stands out is that while he's one of their top guys and I do think they're treating him that way, it doesn't seem like they have a direction to speak of for him, despite so many potential opponents.

If they put him on tv every week, I'll actively seek out that match. That's not true for anyone on the roster (except for maybe Dustin if they gave him time) right now.

BIG CASS IS AMAZING


I’m interested to see what this match looks like. Looking forward to the card as a whole.

Same here. I feel like if Big Cass is ever going to have a good singles match, this is going to be it.

I'm not hunting for a better version, but I'm sure some people might be curious.

I did not know that Bryan worked the dark match vs Nakamura after 205 Live when I posted that during the middle of the show last night. Humble apologies for my ignorance.

I've said it before. It's really a shame that Pete Dunne wasn't around in the mid 2000s and in that RoH/IWA:MS/JAPW ecosystem having great matches.

I feel like all Kona Reeves needs is a stuffed cat and he's Hiromi Takahashi.

I really kind of wish they would leave Full Sail on a regular basis to get some different crowds. The Full Sail crowd feels really burnt out.

It's weird, I know Backlash was May 6th, but I was still surprised to get the WWE emails "THIS SUNDAY" about it. Show feels like it's still weeks away.

Hey remember when no one wanted to see Randy Orton vs. Jeff Hardy a decade ago?

I thought it was a Jeff/Orton PPV main event that supposedly popped a surprisingly high buyrate in that time?

Yes it did. Royal Rumble 2008. That's when they finally started pushing Jeff as an on again off again main event type guy.

Come to think of it, I have no idea. Does anybody know?

We still don't. -_-
