The Smackers Thread


Recommended Posts

I really want Cesaro to leave, just so he can do a YouShoot and I can ask him about his stupid costume changes over his WWE run. He's refused to improve his act, but he's regularly making awful outfit choices to try to cover up that fact. I'm really hoping that he thinks the brass ring is an actual piece of jewellery that Vince has put in the pocket of an item of clothing in the lost and found tub.

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

Until Brock turns up, this is 30 seconds of the most appalling, embarrassing, campy shit you'll see with nursery school nativity level acting and the least convincing medic in history. 

Then Lesnar walks in, smacks them with a dustbin, hits an amazing F5 into the wall and then honest to fuck F5s Cain onto Dominic and it's so brilliant and utterly hilarious. 

Brock's the face, right?

The doctor was awful, like he didn’t have a clue what to do so just did the old ‘where does it hurt?’ line. 
 

Cain needs to move away from Mysterio if he actually wants to make a career of this, otherwise he will be dancing around with a hat on his head like a 2019 Kurgan within 4 months.

Brock attacking the hospital after assaulting Rey's son earlier was awesome, it was like the Terminator.

I liked Shorty G's attire (except the arm things), I preferred him with a singlet, long hair and a headband but this is better than short hair and trunks. He's a plucky babyface with a stupid name who's aimed at kids so they might as well go all in on it, at least he stands out.

I love Baron Corbin, I'm glad they persevered through his go away heat phase. He was great in that segment with the Rock and when he faced up to Hogan for a sec I was wishing they could have a match.

Honestly I'm torn with the Shorty G thing.

I've wanted him to get a push for ages so I'm glad he's actually getting used now, even if it's fucking ridiculous.

Will it turn into something better? Hopefully.

Even though he appealed to the NXT crowd, he never really had a chance on the main roster as a singles guy. I never really felt like the crowds got behind him, although that's probably because they were never given anything to get behind.

He wouldn't be the first guy to make it through a shitty gimmick and come out the other end as a star. I'm really hoping this is one of those situations.

The name and gimmick is one that’s always going to rile up the Internet when given to someone with loads of internet points, but it’s got plenty of potential to work - the death of it will be when Vince gets bored of it and Gable goes back to where he was before King of the Ring.

Aye, it will go the same way as Andrade's push, Rusev's push, Ali's push etc. Will fizzle out after a few weeks and normal service will resume. Cole on commentary will still make the odd nod to how the gimmick was formed, but nothing will be heard from Gable himself.

They must've known the numbers were going to take a knock, but that's a 63% drop of viewers that simply haven't followed them from one FOX station to the other. I don't know how heavily they promoted the different station, but that's a really morbid statistic however you try and spin it.

But remember lads - marathon, not a sprint!
