WWE Smackdown Reaction and Review – September 6th, 2013

wwe smackdown logo

The opening segment was a mixed bag. On the one hand, I thought Triple H was very entertaining, and liked the “town meeting” set-up for a televised wrestling show. It’s the exact kind of thing a narcissistic heel would do. Also, having Hunter describe himself as the COO of WWE and, therefore, “the WWE itself,” was a great way to ...

And he’s the only wrestler to have held every male championship owned and sanction by TNA during the company’s tenure. On ...

WWE SMACKDOWN Reaction and Review – August 30th, 2013

smackdown outline

The opening from Friday night’s show was fantastic. MizTV is often a complete waste of time, but I’m glad the creative team leveraged an establish segment to further an ongoing storyline. The Miz, Big Show, and Dolph Ziggler being together as a unified front made a lot of sense; likewise, it gave Triple H another way to continue building his ...

WWE RAW Reaction and Review – August 26th, 2013

Daniel Bryan Yes Chant
