SmackDown: Taking Souls & Diggin’ Holes (Highlights 11/15/16)

Standard

The 900th episode of SmackDown live is brought to you by Mauro Ranallo, who promises that it will be L-I-T. Given that I trust this man, I’m going to assume that he’s correct and it’s going to be a great night.

Maryse wins the title!

Okay maybe she didn’t win and The Miz is actually holding it….but she won for her husband. Maryse is the MVP of SmackDown and she’s the best wife in the world for helping her husband. I look forward to her turning on him and holding the championship herself.

Natalya be Tubthumping.

Honestly she’s a great coach, speaking such wise words of Chumbawamba wisdom to Alexa Bliss. Team SmackDown is extremely lucky.

Nikki vs. Carmella

It is VICIOUS between the two of them. There’s so much feeling and emotion there and I’m actually interested in this story because it’s not some garbage they threw together last second for Total Divas. It’s also allowing them to be vicious and “go hard” just like the guys do when feuds are continuous like this. It’s different, and I like it.

RAW Invades SmackDown

WHAT?! It was AWESOME. Nia Jax made a clean sweep tossing around the entire women’s SmackDown team before the ladies managed to regain control. Plus Naomi did a beautiful splash off of the top rope. Ugh, fantastic.I’d love to see more of this. These two matches/segments didn’t feel exclusively female like WWE’s been doing for years, they felt like two matches/segments that would apply to any gender.

God damn it, Undertaker is so cool.

SmackDown: Fearless Lock (Highlights 10/25/16)

Standard

I’ll be honest with you here, SmackDown started and I wasn’t entirely ready  for it. All I heard was Dean going on about something with a search warrant, then Ellsworth came in  with several shades of grateful and gosh darn precious. It seems that while Dean loved being ringside and offering a distraction during James’ matches, he doesn’t want Mr. No Chin to be there for his and end up doing the same.

The Fuck, Randall?

I have no idea why Randy RKO’ed Kane, his supposed tag team partner. I have a feeling he might be a little bit mad about Kane kidnapping his father all those years ago. Seriously man, get over it already.

To be frank, I was very bored with this episode of SmackDown. It wasn’t holding my interest for very long, then again, I work with kids and I’m pretty god damn exhausted by the time SmackDown airs. I will give credit where credit is deserved: 1) Nikki Bella’s new submission finisher (Fearless Lock) looks pretty god damn awesome. Number 2) James Ellsworth has incredible facial expressions.
