Smackdown – August 21, 2003: There’s Your TV-MA

Smackdown Date: August 21, 2003 Location: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s the go home show for Summerslam and by definition this show has to be better than Raw. I mean it’s not possible for it to be worse than the drek that they aired on Monday. Brock Lesnar vs. Kurt […]

Royal Rumble 2003 Date: January 19, 2003 Location: Fleet Center, Boston, Massachusetts Attendance: 15,338 Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz, Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler This is a really odd entry in the series as the namesake match is being treated as secondary to almost everything else.

Main Event Date: January 11, 2018 Location: FedEx Forum, Memphis, Tennessee Commentators: Nigel McGuinness, Vic Joseph What does it say that we’re less than a week removed from the most recent episodes of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown Live and I can barely remember what happened?

Smackdown Date: August 7, 2003 Location: Skyreach Place, Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada Commentators: Tazz, Michael Cole Smackdown has some work to do to catch up with Raw, which announced an Elimination Chamber match for the upcoming Summerslam.

Main Event Date: January 4, 2018 Location: American Airlines Arena, Miami, Florida Commentators: Vic Joseph, Nigel McGuinness It’s a new year and….that’s not likely to change a single thing around here.
