WWE Smackdown Live August 8, 2017 Results and Review
John Cena Cut A Bad Promo
This was one of the worst promos I’ve ever heard. Cena is usually ok on the mic. I miss the times when he was rapping. Now he just is tired, and boring. Corbin came out, and the two would talk about how they are going to fight, etc. I don’t know, Cena insulted Corbin and a match was set for the two at Summerslam. I don’t care about either guy. You know what will happen? John Cena will defeat Baron Corbin, and Corbin will cash in his Money In The Bank briefcase on Shinsuke Nakamura in the main event at Summerslam.
The Usos defeated Sami Zayn and Tye Dillinger
Did you see this going any other way? Dillinger loses again. The Usos win, and they are perhaps the best in the industry right now. I’d love to see the Young Bucks versus The Usos, that would set a huge fire under the feet of all tag teams if you ask me. I loved this match, although seeing Zayn and Dillinger buried makes me wonder why even bring them to the main roster?
Charlotte Flair defeated Lana
A burial. Lana can not lace the boots of Flair. Flair is wasted here. Please WWE, give her better competition, perhaps move her back to Raw.
Shane McMahon Bored Me To Tears
Ugh. This was boring. AJ Styles and Kevin Owens talked, and McMahon talked, and then it led to Shane getting kicked. Oh well. It was nice to see Owens mention that McMahon has screwed people in the past. That makes me want to watch Survivor Series 1998, to be honest. I may watch it again, as it was a stellar event if I do remember. Deadly Game Survivor Series, great stuff.
Twin Peaks or Fashion Peaks
This was a cool segment. Nothing to complain about here.
Carmella defeated Naomi
Another burial. This wasn’t half bad. Not that good either. Carmella got the win, and really didn’t progress much of a story. Where was Natalya? Where was Becky? Women’s revolution, huh? Meh.
Randy Orton defeated Jinder Mahal in a grudge match
Do you really want me to talk about this? I didn't even want to see it. Rusev showed up on the ramp with a kick to Orton and the show ended. No more Smackdown, please.
