Randy Orton's standing has been secure for a long, long time. For god sakes, he's been on the main roster since 2002.

Roman's standing in the upper card will always be safe as long as Vince likes Samoans with fabulous hair. I mean, we have had four years of Roman Reigns in World title programs.

AJ had already beaten John Cena several times by the time he lost to Jinder. Plus, AJ is like Daniel Bryan and capable of getting a watchable match out of just about anyone. If WWE didn't have faith in AJ, he wouldn't have gotten the match with Brock.

The entire angle with Jinder was just bad for Nakamura, especially the racial promos from Jinder. Nakamura should also have never been cutting long promos like he did upon being first called up. I firmly believe that was done simply because Vince is amused by people whose native language isn't English speaking English. By the end of the Jinder angle, WWE had pretty much wiped away any feeling of Nak being a speical attraction. They turned him into just another guy. Congratulations.

How great would it be if Bryan partnered up with someone even smaller than him to take on the Bludgeons.  Too bad Chad Gable went to Raw, I'd love to see them paired together.  Thankfully Cass is gone because I could have seen then do the seldom-used storyline of partners who hate each other teaming up.

I don't watch NXT. I don't know what Sanity's gimmick is. Are they wacky anarchists? I saw The Symbol of Chaos. One guy looks like a ManBearPig and another looks like the kid that licked the pole and got stuck in Christmas Story, but grown up.

I get that he's trying to show he's fully healed and that concussion causing spots aren't causing him concussions, but holy fuck taking a spear outside the ring! I wish he'd transition into "The Wrestling Machine" that Paul Heyman set up for Kurt before he went full retard and decided that continuing to do missed moonsaults off of cages was the way to go.

I had nine diagnosed concussions, of varying degrees, before grade ten, and most likely many undiagnosed ones, and I started getting depressed, having seizures and developed a decade long drug addiction. Millionaire Bryan doesn't need to do this, he has a woman ridiculously out his league and a beautiful daughter. I wish he'd be a submission specialist like they always said he was, even though he only did the LeBell lock then. Kind of like Malenko being the man of a thousand holds who did at most eight or nine moves.

Yep. Pains me every time he does it.

I spent close to 5 years training with a local promotion and got a rep as "the bumper". So much so that the last 10 minutes of training at the end of the week was usually "who can hit Lee with the best Spear/Clothesline to get him flip bumping"

I landed on my head/neck probably 5,000 times but this was 2004, I was 16/17, and it got me in with the guys. By the time I hit 23/24 I had the worst depression and more than one doc said it related to previous concussions that weren't diagnosed and treated.

All good now at age 30, but there were some super scary times...

Speaking of Bryan, Big E's spear to the outside was scary.  Big E hit him high and, at first glance, I thought they hit head-to-head.

I feel bad for people missing out on nxt. Here's some Sanity videos for you. Hope this helps.

Sanity's debut: 

You'll notice the long haired member, Sawyer Fulton has been replaced by Killian Dain, who I assume was the one you referred to as ManBearPig. Nikki Cross was not called up with the rest of the group.

Honestly that raised more questions then answering them. I'm even further from understanding what their gimmick is supposed to be then before.

Even though I didn't want Big E flying out headfirst into the barricade I really wanted Bryan to sidestep him on the spear... but no.

Not crazy about Nakamura just beating Jeff for the US since he could never win the WWE, but I love the potential of their feud. Really liked both guys' short promos, with Jeff bringing vibes of his 2009-2010 work with the awesome facepaint back.

the Bludgeon Brothers do nothing for me, but as for Bryan's partner

WWE Fan Council sent out a questionare specifically for this episode of Smackdown. First one I've gotten for a television show. Pretty standard stuff until I got to this question:

"How would you rate your enjoyment of Backlash that aired on Sunday, June 19?"

i don't want to see anything happen to Bryan either but I feel like if Brie is cool with it then who am I to say?  Brie said "Daniel,  go live your dream"  and he's doing it.

You want Bryan to team with him? That seems like an odd choice.

So Daniel Bryan took a spear to the outside off the apron, got powerslammed on his head and busted out a diving headbutt all on the same show?  I love the guy but whatever bad health-wise comes his way he is going out of his way to make sure that he earns it.

Don't worry. They're going to bring in Shane and rework the angle where Daniel gets hurt and Shane wrestles most of the match. Bludgeon Brothers gonna get Shane punched.

Eric Young? Vince can finally redo his "Bryan Wyatt" storyline with Bryan joining Sanity!!!

I have a sneaking suspicion it's going to be Miz and they will drag out the Miz v Bryan match until Mania. They might even win the titles.

The gauntlet was amazing, but Bryan does need to chill a bit.  Like, why be so defiant about it all?  Why take some of those bumps on a random ass Smackdown?

I did notice he hasn't hit the headbutt yet, but I don't understand the reason to even use it as a reversal spot. And there is absolutely no reason to lean in so much.  That Big E spear looked scarier than it normally does because Bryan decided it was a great time to lean in.

Still, the man is the GOAT.  Loved the finish to the Joe match.

Has Bryan actually connected on a diving headbutt since he's been back? I've only seen him miss, which is presumably safer, since his head should not really be impacting anything. Still, I'd rather he not do it at all. He doesn't need a "Flair on the top rope" always fails spot (especially since he would, eventually, have to pay it off).
