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

There is a snippet of interesting info in all that, and that’s Drew Gulak on Smackers. It could just be so he’s around for 205 afterwards, but it may be that they’re thinking of doing something with him on a main show. He’s been good enough the past year or so that I’d hope someone has noticed.

Then again, we’re talking about the show of Shorty Gable, so there’s no hope really.

Buddy Murphy all over again is my guess.

Shorty Gable is the most cringeworthy thing they've done in years. Massively out-of-touch, embarrassing, clearly just to amuse one or two people backstage. To have a guy of Chad Gable's obvious talent and reduce him to a short joke - and not even a remotely clever one, just the most blatant possible - is preposterous. Not that it makes it any better, but he's not even that short - he's 5'8". 

Are they going to Reverse Andre him and refuse to book him against anyone shorter than him to keep the gimmick alive?

This Shorty Gable name change is terrible. After building him again during King Of The Ring they've destroyed him in a matter of weeks. 

What makes this worse is that WWE will do the whole don't be a bully thing again soon and then come up with stuff like this.

Agreed. Plus he has lost 4 times in a row to Corbin. I'm not sure they could make him any more of a loser.

Fox gave them a billion dollars and in return they got Shorty G. And Baron Corbin in the main event.

One positive though - Nakamura’s new posh entrance with all the lights and lasers looks great.

Short G though. Man alive.

Shorty G. I ask you.

Vince: 'What were we thinking calling him Shorty Gable!? That name sucks!!'
Writers: 'Yes Vince. We agree Vince!'
Vince: 'I think we should change it'
Writers: 'Yes Vince... why not go back to Chad Gable?'
Vince:'What!? No! I was thinking 'Shorty G' .... that's good shit!'
Writers: (SIGH) ... Yes Vince. Absolutely.... Shorty G....'

It was reported months ago that they filed for the Shorty G trademark, I thought everyone knew this was happening. 

Considering this was their first normal episode of SmackDown on Fox, it felt very much like it's quickly settled into being the same as every episode of SmackDown ever.
