Backlash 2017 Preview

It’s nice to have Backlash back where it belongs as the whole September slot didn’t feel right last year. I’m not sure if the show is going to be that much better as historically it’s more a show of Wrestlemania rematches, but why do that when you can do a mostly new card? This show […]

Smackdown – May 16, 2017: Why Can’t I Remember This Show?

Smackdown Date: May 16, 2017 Location: SNHU Arena, Manchester, New Hampshire Commentators: Tom Phillips, John Bradshaw Layfield, Byron Saxton We’re back stateside with the go home show for Sunday’s Backlash. We have a few matches announced as it’s Baron Corbin vs. Randy Orton and a “first time ever” match between Jinder Mahal and AJ Styles. […]

Smackdown – May 9, 2017: The British Curse Turns Blue

Smackdown Date: May 9, 2017 Location: 02 Arena, London, England Commentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, John Bradshaw Layfield We’re taped tonight from London as we have less than two weeks before Backlash. That means it’s Jinder Mahal time tonight and we get to see more of his rapid fire build towards being a main eventer. […]

Smackdown – April 25, 2017: Stairway to Nothing

Smackdown Date: April 25, 2017 Location: Wells Fargo Arena, Des Moines, Iowa Commentators: John Bradshaw Layfield, Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton Can we call this a go home show? I mean, Payback is a Raw show but it feels like half of the major matches are built around Smackdown talent, or at least a combination of […]

Smackdown – December 13, 2016: Random Cameos Can Be Good Things

Smackdown Date: December 13, 2016 Location: Verizon Center, Washington D.C. Commentators: Tom Phillips, John Bradshaw Layfield, David Otunga, Mauro Ranallo As has been the case more often than not lately, we’ve got a fairly stacked Tuesday show.

Main Event – November 15, 2016: Setting The Early Bar

Main Event Date: November 15, 2016 Location: Mohegan Sun Arena, Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania Commentators: Tom Phillips, David Otunga I can get through this. I can get through this. Ok so maybe I can’t but repeating the same thing over and over again without changing it up was fine for Raw this week so maybe it […]

Smackdown – November 15, 2016: Out of Character Moments

Smackdown Date: November 15, 2016 Location: Mohegan Sun Arena, Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania Commentators: Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, John Bradshaw Layfield, Tom Phillips It’s the 900th episode and also the final show before Sunday’s Survivor Series. That means there’s a lot of potential for hijinks and shenanigans tonight, which could mean for a very entertaining show. […]

Smackdown – November 9, 2016: What’s Scottish for Average?

I apologize for the delay but my internet was out for a few hours during the middle of the show. Smackdown Date: November 8, 2016 Location: SSE Hydro, Glasgow, Scotland Commentators: Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, John Bradshaw Layfield, Tom Phillips It’s another night in the same building as Smackdown is in Scotland. Tonight actually has […]

Main Event – November 1, 2016: Some Familiar Faces

Main Event Date: November 1, 2016 Location: Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey Commentators: Tom Phillips, David Otunga This went well enough last week so we’ll see how long I keep it going for. I can always dig more wrestling with people who aren’t on TV all that often, as long as it’s not Jinder Mahal […]

Smackdown – August 23, 2016: Good, But Not Gold

Smackdown Date: August 23, 2016 Location: Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, Connecticut Commentators: Mauro Ranallo, John Bradshaw Layfield, David Otunga It’s an interesting time for Smackdown as we’re past Summerslam and the brand is really starting to come into its own. Tonight we’ll see the unveiling of the new Smackdown Women’s and Tag Team Titles but […]
