Smackdown Spoilers for 8/27/15

Recommended Posts

I really hope NXT doesn't become like ECW was at the end, filmed before Smackdown in front of dead crowds.

or having all traces of what made the original ECW special and fun to be part of as a fan being stripped away and sanitized to look exactly like every other WWE show. I shudder to think if we ever get the return of urban Vince McMahon as NXT champion because his idea of new and next generation is a white senior citizen acting as a black stereotype.

Speaking of Vince as ECW champion, I actually just had possibly the worst thought ever: you know how HHH loved being the Flair-esque heel champ during the early days of the brand split? Would HHH as NXT champ not fucking rule? Just the heelest of heels, "You thought I made this for you people? I did this for me! This is the Game's playground! I call the shots! Kliq, bitches!" Real, real meta shit. I'm talking backstage vignettes, where they debate releasing someone, and Scott Hall or Pac just says: "No, no. Don't fire Baron Corbin. Let his family starve!" Just really meta, head up your ass, super on the nose stuff. Ordinarily I'd be against it, and call it Russo-esque trash, but NXT is made for the smarts anyway, they may as well generate some heat and make a buck. I can tell you this: Whoever finally beat him would be made for life.

See, the problem with that is that it means Triple H might want to wrestle more than once or twice a year. Nobody needs to see that.

Finn was probably the most over guy on the show including SD!.  Maybe Ambrose came close.. but nah, it was definitely Finn.

Isn't it just as likely instead of bringing the Dragons down to NXT for the next taping since Joe and Finn where likely with the main roster for the weekend that they just had them tag along to SD for this match and it's nothing more then a way to have a match without making people fly around for no reason.

He's better than most of the roster. Much like Shawn, though, his ego can get the best of him (see: Brock Lesnar feud).

Kinda hard to tell from his recent work. The stuff with Bryan and The Shield was great, but you'd expect it to be. The Sting match was pretty bad, but the bigger problem was booking gimmicks. His matches with Brock are the worst Brock's had since his return.

From what we've seen I'd say he's still solid but with Rusev, Cesaro, Owens, Rollins, Cena, Sheamus, Zayn, etc..   I think this roster is fucking loaded.

Well, the Bryan match was quite possibly Bryan's best WWE match, so that's a point in H's favor. Then again, that was a year and a half ago. The Shield/Evolution matches were great, but not really any moreso than at least a half dozen other Shield tags. I thought the Sting match was fine, nothing special, before the over booking kicked in. And Sting is 55.

You're a phenomenal drunk typer. I applaud you.

Thanks. I woke up to 5 notifications so I knew I had either a really good or really bad idea. It might be fun for a couple months though

Neville got in a little offense but not much.  There was a light chant for him.  Owens was about as over as a face as Neville was.  It was a semi-lengthy squash.

"I don't trust you, giant!"

 

Rusev was on fire.

Watching Smackdown now and I notice Seth Rollins new shirt has his name in the same style as Black Flag's logo. More points for Seth's continued Henry Rollins fandom.

I thought that was his original shirt. (They have it listed like it's new--hmmm, maybe it just looks a lot like the old one)

WWE gave the Ascension the Road Warrior push in NXT and have them get squashed by a midcard nostalgia act. And Jery Lawler told a Kevin Owens fat joke.

But nobody is grabbing that brass ring, yo.

The Ascension are fucking terrible, though. They should be getting squashed.

Best part of Smackdown was Lawler accidentally text messaging a "." to Domino's Pizza. Yet he swears he's a Demi Lovato fan.

And WWE changes Paige / Charlotte / Becky's clique name from Submission Sorority to PCB probably because the porn company that owns that IP would not sell the name to Vince.  My guess is also that they sent WWE a cease and desist.
