Smackdown Date: February 14, 2017 Location: Honda Center, Anaheim, California Commentators: Mauro Ranallo, Tom Phillips, David Otunga, John Bradshaw Layfield There’s nothing in between us and Wrestlemania XXXIII at this point with Elimination Chamber out of the way.

Smackdown – February 7, 2017: Let Me Check My Notes

Smackdown Date: February 7, 2017 Location: Key Arena, Seattle, Washington Commentators: Mauro Ranallo, John Bradshaw Layfield, Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton It’s the last show before Elimination Chamber because this is that annoying period where we have all these pay per views in the span of a few weeks. The card seems to already be set […]

Smackdown – September 5, 2002: The Holly Show

Smackdown Date: September 5, 2002 Location: Resch Center Arena, Green Bay, Wisconsin Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s hard to say what to expect here but hopefully it’s another rocking tag match with some talented people getting to show what they can do instead of jobbing to Undertaker after a former World Champion’s finisher doesn’t have […]

Smackdown Date: August 22, 2002 Location: Crown Coliseum, Fayetteville, North Carolina Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s the go home show for Summerslam and the show is finally starting to pick up some steam.

Smackdown Date: January 17, 2017 Location: FedEx Forum, Memphis, Tennessee Commentators: Mauro Ranallo, John Bradshaw Layfield, David Otunga, Tom Phillips I know I say this every week but it’s a stacked show again with Alexa Bliss defending the Women’s Title against Becky Lynch in a cage match to prevent interference from La Luchadora. Other than […]
