I am delayed in reviewing, as I’m doing some routine marketing things to try and boost traffic for the site, and well I didn’t catch Smackdown until now. The opening alone made me not want to watch, Michael Cole interviewed Dean Ambrose about Money in The Bank ppv. I’m already bored.
WWE Smackdown 5/26/2016 Results and Review
Dean Ambrose mouthed off about how he is the most extreme, etc. This is the lunatic? No thanks. Somewhere, Brian Pillman is wishing he had another chance to come back to wrestling. Kevin Owens showed up to talk randomly about crap, then Sami Zayn comes out and talks about Wrestlemania and what not. 20 minutes of B.S. if you ask me.
Alberto Del Rio defeated Zack Ryder
Well, this was the end for Ryder. Alberto Del Rio picked up the win, even though Ryder in no way was completely buried outright. Ryder put some offense in, but it wasn’t meant to be, as Ryder got beat yet again. No one was surprised by this, no one.
Enzo and Cass challenged The Dudleys, but it won’t happen until Raw. Boring waste of time if you ask me.
Rusev defeated Kalisto
The end of the line for Kalisto, this was his rematch for the United States championship, and well, it was all over before it could get going. Ok match, but nothing grand, that’s all. Competitive match, none the less, Kalisto got beat.
After the match Titus O’neil showed up and challenged Rusev, which was fine, but eh, nothing special. I guess he’s next.
Natalya versus Dana Brooks
This match didn’t go very long. Charlotte interfered and caused a no-finish. Charlotte beats up Natalya, and that’s that? I guess that’s the end of the feud? I don’t know, don’t care, this diva’s revolution is nothing short of boring, sorry.
There are so many flashbacks to Raw that this show just drags on. I don’t like it.
Aj Styles interviewed, and well, he looked defeated, this is the end of the burial of Aj Styles if you ask me.
Tyler Breeze and Fandango defeated R Truth and Goldust (Golden Truth)
Minor match, nothing big. Boring if you ask me. Smackdown is not a great show, just saying.
Seth Rollins showed up, cut a limited promo and then left. Nothing big here.
The Miz defeated Cesaro
A great overall main event for Smackdown, as these two work well together. Cesaro's shoulder was worked on, and in the end, The Miz took him out thanks to a turnbuckle that was removed by Maryse. Overall, this was the best match of the night, and possibly of the week! Great fun, great match, nice to see this type of wrestling for the intercontinental championship. Soak it in, you won't see this in the brand split, I can't believe they are doing that.
Overall Rating: 5 out of 10
Good matches, nope, good entertainment? Not really. This was a lousy show with a good main event, that's it.
