WWE Smackdown August 9, 2016 Same Old BS Again

When the WWE announced the brand split, and they said that they would do things differently, I truly expected something different. What we got was the same old stuff, and if you saw Raw you saw it absolutely in front of your face. Smackdown was always the B show, and guess what? It’s the B show again. It was the same formulaic show that was boring at all ends, including the absolutely predictable ending. What should have been easy booking, was absolutely anything but. I’m absolutely bored by SMackdown Live, and here is a review of it.

WWE Smackdown August 9, 2016 Review

As you already know, I’m not going to run down the show in the same way that I used to do. I don’t want to be comprehensive because the show is not worth comprehensive analysis. Plus, there are a lot of shows that already do that, and I’m not one of those people that is going to go deep into this. So with that in mind, here are the things that stuck out for me.

A New Era!

Straight Up Tag Team Match - Teddy Long Segment 

I hate the openings of shows that have talking. Why? It’s like Southpark once again is making fun of the show, but this is supposed to be a new era. All that was missing from the opening melee was Teddy Long. I was hoping he’d come out and announce that we were getting a Straight Up Tag Team Match. You knew this was going to happen, and well we get it as the main event. Dolph Ziggler and Dean Ambrose against The Wyatts, whom never win a damn match!

American Alpha is overrated.

The Women's Division Sucks

The women’s division is a joke. Alexa Bliss comes in and wins. Eva Marie is a joke. Becky Lynch gets buried, and all of this happened within 10 minutes of the show. This was stupid. The whole women’s division in the WWE is starting to look a lot like the Divas division. The same stuff you remember from when Michelle McCool’s diva’s championship reign is exactly how they’re booking the women’s division right now. .

Randy Orton defeated Alberto Del Rio via Disqualification

I’m supposed to believe that Randy Orton can stop a roided out Brock Lesnar? Nope. Not if he’s having match after match on Smackdown and he’s having a hard time pulling through. He should be winning with ease, and showing that he’s dominant on Smackdown. Instead, he’s going back and forth with Alberto Del Rio. Much respect to Alberto Del Rio, but man, they are underusing him completely. I guess that paycheck is nice though.

Carmella defeated Natalya

This match was a stinker. Carmella and Natalya just don’t mesh well, and Carmella is trying really hard to be the female Enzo Amore and she isn’t. It was very forced and unnatural. I didn’t like it. The debut was ok, but again, a short match, with a fast ending. I didn’t care for it.

Rhyno def. Heath Slater to deny The One Man Band a SmackDown Live contract

I like Heath Slater’s comedy here. He lost though, but the skits he was in trying to get a contract were great. I don’t know if the WWE is going to let him stick around, but he may be the last active wrestler from the Nexus. It’s sad that out of all those dudes, only Heath Slater is left. But you know what, he’s a one man rock band! I am cheering for the guy, but he’s not going far, I don’t think. Maybe Cody Rhodes will wrestle him when he gets booted. I mean, not EVERYONE is meant to be champion, not even the RHODES brothers.

These Two Idiots are Facing Each Other At Summerslam, Who Gives a Flying FU@!

Dean Ambrose &  Dolph Ziggler def. Bray Wyatt & Erick Rowan

This was so predictable, that I didn’t finish watching it. I’m all for wrestling, and I’m still writing about it here, but come on. I can’t even suspend disbelief when you telegraph the ending so hard. You knew this wasn’t going to be a Wyatt victory, and it wasn’t. What a lackluster showcase.
