    Is Smackdown Booty?

    It was booty.

    It sucked.

    But now thanks to the New Talent from NXT and WWE freshening itself its worth following.

    So here is a thread to celebrate it as if its a New Day

    images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTvK7jptdjcDV9gnsSsXQW279QY5U5YvintMJ2biyCRAyEL1asN


    Tapings for 28th April 2016 are below:

    * WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns opened SmackDown by calling out AJ Styles to the ring. Maryse and WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz came out instead. They had words and Reigns sent Miz flying over the top rope to set up the main event

    * Sami Zayn, Cesaro and WWE United States Champion Kalisto defeated The League of Nations by count out. There was tension within The League from the beginning. Alberto Del Rio walked out first, then Rusev. Sheamus finally left to end the match and The League as a group

    * Baron Corbin defeated Damien Sandow

    * Backstage segment with The League breaking up

    * Backstage segment with Renee Young and AJ Styles

    * Dean Ambrose comes out talking about facing Chris Jericho at WWE Payback. He brings out WWE Women's Champion Charlotte, Ric Flair and Natalya out for The Ambrose Asylum. They have words for their match at Payback

    * WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day come out for commentary

    * Enzo Amore and Big Cass defeated Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel while The Vaudevillains watched from the stage

    * Apollo Crews defeated Stardust

    * Backstage segment with Fandango, Tyler Breeze, Goldust and R-Truth, who teases The Gorgeous Truth with Breeze

    * Roman Reigns defeated The Miz in the main event. AJ Styles watched from ringside. After the match, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson attacked Reigns while AJ watched. The Usos ran out for the save. They went at it with AJ also but AJ kept his distance from Gallows and Anderson

    Wow a wild smackdown thread appeared! Is WWE finally getting back on track?

    A bit weird to see the LON just ending like that out of nowhere, but a fitting end to a nothing group I guess


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,126 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    The Usos are getting main event exposure.

    This cannot continue.

    It was never the same as the old days when they had barrett. aah good times...


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,185 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    LON needed handbags for that ending. To be fair, Rusev trying to mess Sheamus' mohawk was fantastic.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 689 ✭✭✭Straight Edge Punk


    And to think, people saying the LON winning at Mania was a good idea.

    Smackdown is loving to Thursday nights on Sky at 10.

    That time should make it much easier to watch as it will be ahead of the weekend.

    http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/2016/0503/611400/live-spoilers-wwe-smackdown-tapings-for-this-week/
    The Highlight Reel kicks off SmackDown. Chris Jericho talks about how he put Dean Ambrose in the hospital. He brings out his guest Sami Zayn but they're interrupted by WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz and Maryse. Jericho throws a fit, calls everyone idiots and walks out. Zayn and Miz scuffle, leading to a match

    * Sami Zayn defeated The Miz by DQ. Kevin Owens came out during the match to join commentary. He ended up interrupting the match and attacking Zayn for the disqualification. Cesaro ran out to make the save. He cleared the ring and held the title in the air while staring at Miz

    * Backstage segment with AJ Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. They tell Styles he needs to get a little extreme if he wants to beat Roman Reigns at Extreme Rules. Styles says it's time he had a little chat with Reigns

    * The Vaudevillains defeated Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel. After the match, Big Cass came out to confront Simon Gotch and Aiden English. He took them both out with powerbombs, then gave one to Axel, and got a good pop

    * Natalya and Becky Lynch defeated Emma and WWE Women's Champion Charlotte when Emma tapped to the Sharpshooter. Ric Flair was at ringside

    * Styles finds Reigns in the locker room and asks if he's going to get involved in The Usos vs. Gallows and Anderson tonight. Reigns says he's the champion, so he goes where he wants and they are family, so he will do what he wants

    * Rusev squashed Zack Ryder. After the match, Lana and Rusev celebrate until WWE United States Champion Kalisto runs down. He nails a corkscrew forearm on Rusev and runs back out

    * Backstage segment with Fandango trying to show Goldust new dance moves. R-Truth and Tyler Breeze approach them and end up dancing together

    * Darren Young approaches WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund and asks him to be his new life coach. Backlund says yes but Darren needs to realize wrestling is life. Their new catchphrase is "Make Darren Great Again"

    * Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson with AJ Styles vs. The Usos with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns is next. Overwhelming boos for Reigns. Anderson ends up kicking Reigns in the face while he's standing outside of the ring. Reigns dives into the ring and all hell breaks loose. The match ends in a DQ and turns into a six-man

    * Reigns and The Usos defeated Styles, Gallows and Anderson when Reigns speared Anderson for the pin. One of The Usos held Styles' legs so he couldn't break the pin. SmackDown ends with a staredown between Reigns and Styles

    Overall the main event here is the perfect example of why WWE needs a brand split. The fallout from the Monday needs a week to rest for it to really mean something.

    It looks like an odd show. Bob Backlund and Darren Young could be fun. I feel bad for Zack. Big Cass killing the Vaudevillians is fins with me but when they are meant to be challenging for the tag titles it seems out of place.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,096 ✭✭✭✭the groutch


    could they not have found someone else for Rusev to squash?


  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 12,669 Mod ✭✭✭✭riffmongous


    Seems like a decent episode

    Rusev squash sucks though, why even make it a squash, Ryder had a few decent matches with Miz recently


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,552 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Sounds like Young is going to be a Donald Trump spoof character. Trump's slogan is 'Make America great again'.

    I've no problem with Rusev squashing Ryder. I don't like his character at all. It does annoy me though that they stuck the supposedly second most important title in the company on a jobber for shock value and/or as a pat on the back.

    The Reigns/Usos v AJ/Good Brothers is really good. It feels like a really big deal and it's good to get important 6 man tags back, like when Shield were around.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,185 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/2016/0510/611617/live-spoilers-wwe-smackdown-tapings-for-this-week/
    * SmackDown opens with Dean Ambrose cutting a promo in the ring, about how he's even with Chris Jericho now due to Mitch and the light-up jacket being destroyed. Jericho's music hits and the lights go out. They come back on with Jericho already in the ring and Ambrose laid out. Jericho pulls out a strait-jacket and begins beating on Ambrose but doesn't put him in it. Ambrose tries unsuccessfully to fight back. Jericho DID put him in the straight jacket and proceeded to beat him before a bunch of referees came to help. Once separated, they couldn't get the straight jacket off, and Jericho attacked him one last time before leaving Ambrose in the ring. Jericho stands on the announcer's table and offers the crowd "the gift of Jericho."

    * Rusev is backstage ranting about what happened on RAW

    * Rusev defeated Sin Cara in a short match, with The Accolade. WWE United States Champion Kalisto was on commentary. Lana came out first and introduced Rusev as the next US Champion. Rusev controlled the early part of the match and just as Cara made a comeback, Lana threw water on Kalisto to distract Cara. Rusev went outside, kicked Kalisto in the back of the head and went back in to finish Cara. Rusev left both Lucha Dragons laying

    * Renee Young interviews Emma backstage. She formally introduces Dana Brooke, who will face Becky Lynch tonight

    * Dana Brooke defeated Becky Lynch. This was said to be not very impressive. Dana came out with Emma, using Emma's music. She controlled the early part of the match until Becky made a comeback but Dana won with a fluky roll-up off a distraction. The match seemed awfully short and most of the crowd was confused by the sudden ending

    * RAW replay of the six-man match

    * Backstage segment with Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. AJ Styles approaches and promises to take care of Roman Reigns if he interferes in their match against The Usos tonight

    * WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day are out to easily the biggest pop of the night so far. The Vaudevillains end up interrupting and we've got a singles match

    * Aiden English defeated Kofi Kingston. Kofi started hot but English quickly took control. Decent back and forth action until Simon Gotch got involved. Gotch tried to get involved a second time but Big E and Xavier Woods stopped him. The chaos led to the referee ejecting Gotch, Woods and Big E from the arena. This led to Kofi being distracted and English getting the win with an assist from the ropes

    * Backstage segment with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns and The Usos. Like AJ did with Gallows and Anderson, Reigns promises to take AJ out if he gets involved tonight

    * The Usos defeated Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson by DQ. The Usos started off strong until Gallows grabbed a handful of hair from the apron to turn it around. Anderson and Gallows kept control for a while, even surviving a hot tag. This led to dueling chants for The Usos. The heels controlled a bit more until an Uso superkick led to another hot tag. The crowd was really getting into the match as The Usos ran hot until Gallows hit one with a steel chair for the disqualification. Anderson and Gallows stand tall after a beatdown with chairs, leaving The Usos laying. This was the best match of the night so far, basically tag wrestling 101 but the crowd was hot by the end

    * Backstage segments with R-Truth building a selfie stick out of an actual stick with Tyler Breeze, and Fandango trying to teach Goldust to dance

    * They air a Life Lessons segment with Bob Backlund and Darren Young. Backlund asks Young what time it is on his watch and Young pulls out his phone to check. This causes Backlund to berate him for trying to make a phone call. Backlund assigns him 200 squats for disobedience

    * R-Truth and Tyler Breeze defeated Fandango and Goldust. Truth started with Fandango but Fandango tagged out, leaving Goldust vs. Truth but they don't fight and fans chant "Golden Truth" at them. They still won't fight. Truth ends up tagging out to Breeze but Breeze lays him out. Goldust catches wind but Fandango ends up laying him out, allowing Breeze to get the pin. Officially Gorgeous Truth wins but Fandango and Breeze both beat Goldust down. Truth comes in for the save but also gets beatdown. Fandango and Breeze leave together as Goldust and Truth are left laying

    * Another vignette for The Shining Stars (The Colons)

    * Renee Young interviews Ric Flair and WWE Women's Champion Charlotte. Charlotte says what happened on RAW was a travesty. Flair promises Charlotte will retain at Extreme Rules

    * Cesaro and Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens and WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz with Maryse ended in a No Contest. Miz started with Cesaro. Cesaro teased the Swing but Miz escaped and tagged Owens. He came in and Zayn tagged himself in. Owens tried to gag out but Miz drops off the apron and Sami beat Owens down a bit. Cesaro and Zayn hit consecutive big moves on Miz after he tags in but the h eels gain control behind the referee's back. The heels control for a bit before Sami pulls out a desparation Blue Thunder Bomb but he can't get the pin. Cesaro gets a hot tag and takes out Owens and Miz. A Swing attempt on Owens is interrupted by Miz. Sami misses a Helluva Kick on Miz and hits Cesaro by accident. The match devolves into a finisher party as Owens hits the pop-up powerbomb on Sami and Miz hits the Skull Crushing Finale on Owens to stand tall and end the match in a No Contest. Owens recovers and tosses Miz back in the ring for the faces to make up. Cesaro hit a 32 second Swing on Miz and then slingshots him into the corner for a Helluva Kick from Sami. SmackDown ends with everyone cheering for Sami and Cesaro

    I wonder who Becky will get help from? They already had her and Sasha as a pairing.

    I'm beginning to think she won't get help. Just lose to Emma and Dana a few times in an attempt to get them over as heels.

    Seems to be Becky's role unfortunately.

    Becky might need a HUG after that ;)

    I was disappointed. Interview with Dana that didn't end with a pat on the head


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,553 ✭✭✭Blue_Dabadee


    Looks like Team Fabreeze (Fandango and Tyler Breeze) might actually happen.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,440 ✭✭✭Chip Whitley


    Looks like Team Fabreeze (Fandango and Tyler Breeze) might actually happen.

    I was actually discussing them becoming as a team with a friend a few weeks back. To me they should have went the Zoolander/Hansel route, and had them in backstage skits where they would annoy each and then start having tag matches (like they have done) where they would try outdo each other with poses and dances. Would have been a nice little midcard storyline. My idea would have culminated in them eventually becoming best frenemies, becoming 'The Prettyboys' (the tag name needs work) and to legitimize it you could bring in the original 'sexy boy' Shawn Michaels in a mentor role, have Summer Rae back as a manager/peacekeeper and when they have the fans on their side, you could turn them heel (if needed) by having them turn on Shawn. I pictured a lot of funny backstage stuff with them, deciding who was 'pretty' enough to hang with them and have them rib other wrestlers on their appearances.

    Kevin Owens defeated Cesaro with a roll-up when Cesaro was distracted by Sami Zayn and WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz, who had been on commentary. Maryse was with Miz

    * Dana Brooke dominated and defeated Paige in a quick match. Becky Lynch was on commentary

    * Dolph Ziggler defeated Sheamus. Baron Corbin comes out after and cuts a promo on Ziggler, saying he will kick his ass at Extreme Rules

    * Chris Jericho comes to the ring and gets big heat as he knocks the crowd. The Asylum starts to lower around the ring. Jericho goes on with his promo until Dean Ambrose, disguised as a ring crew worker, jumps in the ring and beats Jericho around. Ambrose unloads with a kendo stick and stands tall

    * New vignette with Bob Backlund and Darren Young airs

    * Big Cass and WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day vs. The Vaudevillains and The Dudley Boyz is next. Cass and New Day got big pops, Cass got a few hot tags and finally won with a pin on Bubba Ray Dudley

    * WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns vs. Luke Gallows ends in a DQ when everyone brawls. The Usos, AJ Styles and Karl Anderson taunted each other all through the match, leading to everything falling apart. Referees break it up and Reigns is left in the ring with Styles. They grab steel chairs but swing at the same time and AJ drops his. AJ nails a pele kick and a chair shot to the back, knocking Reigns out of the ring. Styles stands tall to end SmackDown

    http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/2016/0517/611842/live-spoilers-wwe-smackdown-tapings-for-this-week/

    Big Cass is getting a good intro.

    Its a pity they didn't have Reigns v Anderson.
