Another full week of wrestling and I thought Smackdown was the show to watch this week. We are getting character development and potential of more stories being told.
To start off Raw we had a solid match between Becky Lynch and Charlotte. Yes Charlotte has won the title 10 times but her losing record in the past 2 years has been high. I am starting to feel bad for Charlotte. She was promoted as the greatest women’s wrestler but they been having her title reigns be not relevant and her loss record high. with that said I do no have a desire to see Becky and Charlotte having another feud. For me personally Becky is not interesting and Charlotte has lost her idenity.
Really good wrestling on Raw I really liked Ali VS. Andrade, Ricochet VS Shelton and Buddy VS Cedric. I really thought all those matches were amazing. I also liked the women tag titles getting some attention. Asuka is such a star right now, I’d put her in the title picture against Becky.
AEW for me is having a hard time developing characters, creating stars, stories and introducing us to what is different about the product. The one match I did really enjoy on the show this week was Riho VS Britt. I think this match showed Britt is still green, but oh boy Riho was an incredible babyface in that match and really carried the match.
I haven’t watched NXT yet but so far my favorite show of the week has been Smackdown. This was the most solid show for me this week.
I really loved the way Smackdown started with Roman VS Shin, it was a very good match. Corbin interfering was something I wasn’t expecting. What I liked about this is there wasn’t a tag after the interference and we didn’t find out this match would be happening until the second hour, I really liked that part.
I loved Shorty G dominating his match and his promo after the match was really really good. He is a character that is still developing. I like the effort in this character and with Vince high on him, I’m excited for his future.
Amazing tag team action on Smackdown, this is just a taste of what we will be getting at crown jewel. Right now the Smackdown tag team division is stacked and they need to tag advantage of that.
I absolutely loved Sasha and Bayley’s promo on miz TV. I thought the promo was perfect to calling out the fans, to saying the wrestlers are lazy, to saying how she was treated. Only thing I think would’ve been cool to add is first of all beat up the Miz and second of all to address how WWE made her me this happy person but wow hands down for best segment of the week.
I thought the 6 pack challenge was fine but Nikki winning just feels like going steps backwards. She has had chances this year and her and Bliss seem to always be right behind Bayley all the time. I would of liked a story between Bayley and Dana or even Bayley and Mella.
I liked the tag team match for the main event I do believe Roman should be in the main event picture and main eventing Smackdown but maybe adding a story to this would of made it more intriguing. I thought tonight would of been a perfect night for DB to attack Roman.
