    Reigns is streets ahead of anyone else on the roster. I’m looking forward to him burying smiley Balor.

    The Corbin is broke story is probably the most sensible money storyline they've ever done. His Talking Smack promo was great...

    Everything is so sincere and then at the end he talks about not having a can opener to open a can of beans so he smashes it off the side of the footpath to open it!

    Austin Theory and Odyssey Jones working a dark match for SD

    Could Finn and Corbin get in the world title match too and make it fatal four way, the Summerslam poster already out with Cena and Reigns

    Cena’s comedy is so painful.. the Corbin character.. gives an insight into the psyche of Vince

    “Look at this loser who lost his money.. hilarious pal”

    Watching a bit of smackdown now, Jaysus the camera work is making me dizzy 😵 is it always this way

    Not a good Smackdown.

    Called it that Sasha would return this week, don't know why they even bothered having her be a face for 5 minutes when it was the most obvious turn ever. All it did was make Bianca look a dumbass.

    I can't believe they brought Finn up to put him in a Baron Corbin feud. The whole logic of contract signings is dumb too, anyone that wants a chance at a title can just sign a contract regardless of where they are on the roster and it's binding. Seems like in that case any contract signing would be like all those lads running after the 24/7 title to get a shot.

    Cena's promo at the start was lame. Surely Balor would have an issue with Cena too but whatever I guess. Rest of the show was all filler. How about the fact that they had Toni Storm debut last week and this week she wasn't even on the show. Solid stuff. Despite all the big promise of Summerslam, so far it's not looking spectacular.

    So is Sasha now like other part timers like Cena? Just decides to have a title match at Mania and again at Summerslam? The dragging Bianca up and awkward enthusiastic hug made it obvious

    Zelina vs. Bianca would be fresh and new



  • Registered Users Posts: 25,987 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Corbin attacking Balor like that made me think of how you would hear ones in films and tv say the most dangerous man is one with nothing left to lose.



  • Registered Users Posts: 22,423 ✭✭✭✭ J. Marston


    Reginald's leap/bounce into the ring is impressive.



  • Registered Users Posts: 25,987 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    I'm assuming they brought back Sin Cara's trampoline thing



  • Registered Users Posts: 32,042 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Finn does have a right to be pissed off at Cena

    Decent Smackdown and I have to eat a small bit of crow because they did acknowledge Finn being mad at Cena. Even though I'm still not confident it will lead to anything. Glad that Finn is staying in the main event picture though and they made him look great, guessing him and Corbin isn't the Summerslam feud considering how he beat him pretty easily.

    Usos/Mysterios is already feeling a bit tired which isn't great since it's the match at Summerslam. Enjoyed the promos between Sasha/Bianca and Edge/Seth as well. The reaction to Boogz and Nakamura was pretty great but the reaction for Shotzi and Nox was dead. Apollo's title run has been dull, forgot he had it tbh.

    Crowd absolutely sucked in general though and of course that meant fake crowd noise. Very hard to get excited for WWE at the moment especially considering they released a load more people during the show.

    Finn to make his way into the summerslam match to eat the pin

    I liked the fact that Finn acknowledged his smiley persona during his last main roster run.

    Also yeah, I think we will see Nakamura take the IC title at Summerslam, himself and Boogz are mega over and Apollo just sucks.

    Loved the Big E and Paul Heyman segment too.

    Seth/Edge were just allowed to let loose on each other and it worked.

    Bianca on the other hand... if you're pissed off at someone don't come to the stage swinging your hair like you're going for a jaunt to the shops. Stride out with purpose, cut your promo without silly giggling and then do your hair swing. I'm just not sold on her as THE person to beat.

    Just finished Smackdown and enjoyed it except for that opening segment. Sasha and Bianca came across like squabbling kids and there was zero crowd reaction.

    Loved the ending with Finn and Roman. They seem to really work well together.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,269 ✭✭✭ ThePott


    I just realised Toni Storm debuted two weeks ago and hasn't appeared or been mentioned since.



  • Registered Users Posts: 74,541 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    Does anyone earn title matches anymore?

    Sasha returns and straight into a title rematch at Summerslam



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,671 ✭✭✭ The White Wolf



    The sad thing is that in a company that presents Charlotte in the manner they do, Sasha absolutely does feel like a legit contender in comparison.

    This Bianca run has been by and large terrible IMO.



  • Registered Users Posts: 74,541 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    Is Taminia solely representing the women's tag titles as Nattie out injured?

    I'd prefer Sasha and Charlotte out of the title pictures

  • Registered Users Posts: 32,042 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Ohhhh a few controversial lines thrown into the Cena vs Reigns promo



  • Registered Users Posts: 345 ✭✭ orecir


    Fantastic stuff from Cena and Reigns.


    Roman is an absolute star. Best thing in wrestling today.
