Thats exactly what he did, by belittling everyone as mere "title holders" and then they want you to care about the main event! Not happening. 

Context is everything. He believes his client is above everyone else. Roman believes he is above everyone else. They're a heel duo. Why would they NOT act like that?

And yes I cared about the main event. It was a great effort and a good match from all guys. And funnily enough Heyman didn't ruin it.

Don't forget: the clocks changed last week so if you want to record Smackdown you probably need some professional help.

What a Mark. 

Rob Gronkowski's ring entrance in an empty arena was the most embarrassing and cringy thing I may have ever seen as a wrestling fan. And thats coming from somebody whose parents were in the room when

Let’s be honest, Roman IS head and shoulders above every other champion on Raw, Smackdown and NXT. It ain’t like they’re lying.

I’d even go as far as saying even Jey Uso is above all the other champions in regards to presentation and his contribution to Reigns current run.

I'm starting to get over the Reigns bubble now already which is a shame. I just don't find the character interesting in that they are presenting absolutely everyone else below him in such a fashion that there's no match ups I want to see him in right now and it's a bit boring watching rinse and repeats of him battering people, talking down to the Usos and brooding like a mid 2000s emo kid when he doesn't get his own way.

I get that the rumour is him and Cena at SummerSlam and if anyone can overcome him it'd be Cena but outside of that they're doing such a bad job building anyone else up to face him it's making me avoid SmackDown now too.

That being said, Seth Rollins' suits just get better every week, so I have absolutely no concept of taste.

I'm still all in with Roman. I get what you're saying with bringing people up to his level but that doesn't ruin my enjoyment of him. It'll make the pay off all the sweeter when they finally have someone step up and be able to overcome him.

It's such a rarity that they actually book a champion to look strong and dominant. They're getting it completely right with him at the moment. Him mixing up the Usos names this week for example - so simple but worked perfectly. His entire manipulation of them all night was great actually.

I know an argument can be made for dragging it out too long etc but I'm glad they're committing to it. They need to invest in characters and storylines because they don't do it very often.

They now just need to build up some people around him.

The name mix up bit admittedly was fantastic. 

Like the battering of Rey, a smaller, older wrestler and Dominik, a young but not fully polished rookie makes sense, but between that and him battering Bryan, Edge, Cesaro and whoever else its got a bit repetitive, but as you say, it is good they're making a champion look strong. It just seems like they're cutting off any momentum someone may get before they get to his level. Big E was an unfortunate casualty of that with Black being released and him now stuck somewhere in the middle waiting for something to do.

I really normally enjoy SmackDown but you can almost time it getting a bit stale to when Daniel Bryan left, which I'm assuming meant his ideas were gone from the writing team as well.

Reigns is obviously still great but it does feel a bit weak that no-one is stepping up saying they want a title shot just now.

Might be why they're going with the Mysterios stuff now to maybe kill some time? It's not the direction I saw them going but it kinda makes sense.

There's not really anyone that could step up and seem legitimate at the moment. I know there's rumours of Cena at Summerslam which would be great short term but they definitely need to build someone else up to eventually be a credible opponent. With Big E at a loose end now I'd get behind him pretty fast.

It's interesting that SummerSlam will take place in a stadium in Las Vegas with a potential 72,000 fans.  Another interesting point is that it's going to be a Saturday.

If we get Reigns V Cena, the card will look better than WrestleMania 37 with that match alone.

9 titles on the main roster (plus the 24/7 shenanigans) before you get to a non title feud, even if all those don't get defended it's definitely going at least 5 hours and a pre show.

Would be interesting seeing Cena back trying to get Flair's World Title record. Even though he's aged quite a lot and lost a lot of size I'm not sure how he'd look standing across from Roman at the moment but it would still be a good story line.

According to the poster for SummerSlam, the PPV will begin at 8 so I don't think it'll run longer than 4 hrs.  Can't see a PPV with a stadium full of fans go on until 1am their time.

Apparently the Manny Pacquiao fight will also take place in Vegas on the same night.

8pm East Coast Time, which is 5hrs behind GMT. Las Vegas is 7hrs behind GMT, which mean it starts at 6pm locally, so it’s very possible that we could be in for a long night.

Also, the main event of Wrestlemania 35 didn’t get underway until gone midnight
