I think I got through the entire show in about fifteen minutes. A new record.

I’m completely convinced they know how toxic all this Corbin/Roman/Ziggler shit is, which is why they decided to end the show with something else and got it out of the way as soon as possible.

Considering the time of year, it’s insane how cold Smackdown feels. Worse still, I can’t see anything on the horizon that’s going to change that.

In an ideal world, it would be Vince being distracted enough by the XFL that he’s not all ever-present, allowing the Smackdown crew to try different things.

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

Still be Bruce Pritchard writing and he's a bag of shite.

And you really can't put all the blame on WWE in this case.

Been obvious for ages that he can't be arsed anymore and is happy to live in the US and collect a paycheck. He's done enough to earn himself a cushy little number anyway imo and if WWE are willing to pay him to fill out the card then that's on them.

He's big into surfing right?

As a huge fan of his njpw run I can't say how disappointed I've been in the guy. Never seen such a marked dip in output in such a short time. Really gone down in my view sadly but he has to protect his health and finances I guess.

I really enjoy the Usos teaming with Roman. Associating them on the show has seemed like such a no-brainer for years, but it's better late than never. Roman massively benefits from the fact that the the Usos are such good talkers, actually cool (as far as wrestlers go), and most importantly for him, they're so well liked by the crowd, while the brothers get their profile raised by hanging round with the biggest star on the show. I'd like for them to continue as a little faction, but suspect there's not strong enough heel opposition on the SmackDown roster to justify three babyfaces joining up full time. 

Decent pay off to the Corbin feud with Roman winning the fun brawl at the Rumble followed by the dog food humiliation on SmackDown. Corny stuff, but fun, just as wrestling should be. Just hope that's drawn a line under it all now.

Is Roman expected to be facing The Fiend at Mania? Would be a shame if so. As creative as Wyatt is, it's a wrestlecrap gimmick and another feud with one of those is the last thing Roman needs after months of King Corbin.

I usually skim through SD on watch wrestling and was planning on doing so this morning. After skipping through the intro shite, first thing I stopped on was poxy Michael Cole screaming "and here comes da big dog!!"and I just said fuck that and went back to watching Seinfeld.

It must be some intricate in joke now, him saying that every time.  They must know everyone hates it.

I love Bray Wyatt as much as anyone. The guys is a genius who deserves all the credit in the world for completely turning his career around.

Would much prefer Goldberg vs. Roman at Wrestlemania though.
