  • Team Awesome

    Interesting show. Looks like Bo & Swagger feuding next.

  • Jeremy-County Roberts

    ” There was a giant pop when Sin Cara came out”

    • MrPunk2

      Probably from his fireworks.

    • pwnez

      I wonder why fans still cheer for Sin Cara. The character is such a flop. I would say it was canned but it’s a live SD taping.

      • http://500px.com/dansingsbuzz Daniel

        Because not everyone is a mark

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        He could be a great character if they use him for more than squash matches.

  • pwnez

    Miz loses the IC title and then loses to Reigns in less than 2 minutes. This guy is finished.

    Rollins vs Swagger sounds like the best match. I’m not looking forward to more Reigns/Orton.

  • The Real Fan

    Stardust and Goldust beat another great team…

    • Yassar

      Because they are great.

  • 9 year old boy

    I’ve been liking this new aggressive attitude from Orton lately.

    • Ouch

      It’s not new in anyway, he was the exact same in 2009 and in 2005. He goes through phases of being a cowardly heel and an aggressive heel and occasionally an emotionless boring face.

    What is happening to Luke Harper and Erik Rowens losing? … And again with no Kofi or Big E or Woods on the show, does that mean something?

    • The Man From Jonestown

      I think they’re waiting for Ferguson to die down. I think now would be a bad time to do a black angle. But, something does smell here. Because Kofi and Big E. got fairly good TV coverage before Xavier’s promo. I’m thinking maybe they’re pushing them further to the fringe to add more legitimacy to their frustrations when they bring them out as a new nation.

      At least, I hope. But, the severe reduction in TV time for Kofi especially is too suspicious.

      • TNA Live Crowd

        Another ICW making everything about race again every time a black guy is involved. The Ferguson has nothing to do with them dropping the Nation thing. Maybe WWE realized it wouldn’t be nothing compared to the original so they backed off the idea. It would just turn out to be a stable of jobbers using the Nation name which wouldn’t last anyways. You do know that Russev is still being massively pushed even after the whole plane thing in Russia and continue to sport Putin’s face on the big screen

        • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

          I dunno – he’s got a point… it might be tied to Ferguson… never know. Then again, might be what you suggested. Either way it’s a shame though… people were looking forward to it. To give up on it so soon, meh…

          • The Man From Jonestown

            To be clear, Yrabadi, I’m not saying with 100% certainty its tied to Ferguson. I’m just speculating it is, but I don’t know. It would just make sense to me that if they did have a valid reason for holding off or outright killing it, that would be it. But, again, this is the WWE. They kill stuff for no reason, so maybe they just gave it the ole’ “this never happened” treatment.

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            Yep, I get ya.

        • The Man From Jonestown

          Yes, because CLEARLY, race would have nothing to do with a stable of black guys becoming the new version of a black militant group. Whatever am I thinking? Thinking that race and the NOD have anything to do with one another? Because clearly, the Nation of Domination never was a racial angle at all.

          And yes, Rusev is being pushed and Putin is still being seen, because no one cares. It raised a small stink because it was on the other side of the planet, was not an American issue, and was not something as sensitive as an American race war between black civilians and white cops. The two are not even close to being equal.

          And the point of putting a stable together is to ELEVATE talent. The original NOD was a stable of jobbers and midcarders. It started with mid-carder Faarooq and a bunch of actors. And they began surrounding him with guys who were jobbers and nobodies like D-Lo Brown and Savio Vega. All the guys who came in and out later were guys who had fallen off or couldn’t get over like Kama Mustafa and Rocky Maivia. (Yeah, given your statement, you probably weren’t even aware that The Rock couldn’t get over when he first started.)

          They BECAME a legendary group after they joined forces and got nuclear heat on them for their (apparently NON) racial gimmick.

          I got a clue for sale, bro. Just letting you know.

    • Eskylee

      They we’re prob looking to get Henry involved and he prob said no, so they just teased it. Having three so called racist acts on the roster is a bit much.

  • Mrs.Ambrose #LunaticFringeFan

    Smackdown looks pretty good. But WWE needs to stop repeating matches over and over.

  • The Man From Jonestown

    Roman hitting the Spear/Superman punch and standing tall to end the show is getting about as Nauseating as Cena hitting an AA and standing tall to end the show.

    It’s pretty impressive that you can irritate me in a matter of months to the degree to which it took years for Cena to irritate me. If Cena’s time is done, the LAST thing I want is to see ANOTHER Superman take his place.

    A superman with 1/5th of Cena’s moves, 1/50th of his in-ring story telling ability and 1/500th of his promo ability.

    • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

      Cena ain’t done. 16 is around the corner.

      • The Man From Jonestown

        Let me rephrase: If Cena’s time as the Alpha Dog is done, not done as a wrestler.

        • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

          Yeah I know, but I don’t think he’s giving up that Alpha Dog status just yet… as big as he is, he’s always got the heel turn card to play. He plays that and it’ll bring freshness to him and probably more longevity… Never count that guy out. He’s going to be around for as long as he wants – unless a huge name comes up by then.

          • The Man From Jonestown

            I actually wouldn’t mind Cena being in the alpha dog spot for a few more years if he went heel. I actually loved him when he was a heel. But, if the WWE just refuses, I’m hoping Dean Ambrose can top him as the Alpha Dog. Cause it sure as hell ain’t going to be Reigns.

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            I’m personally hoping that Bryan still has some left in the tank. Dude has gotten a raw deal. Hoping he can come back for a bit.

          • The Man From Jonestown

            Seriously. He’s got to have the worst luck of anyone I’ve seen in the WWE in the past…forever. I hope he can at least come back and get the 3-4 years at the top he deserves for his years of excellence.

          • Eskylee

            The only way Cena would step down is if he had a very serious injury or if somehow Hollywood wants him for more roles and they will pay wwe top money for it, ya know if he became like the rock or something

      • Ouch

        Good 20 by the end of his career I’d imagine, surprised he didn’t end the streak, I thought that was a sure thing.

  • Reality

    Well that’s a Smackdown I won’t be watching

  • Sigma ?


  • satishwarne708

    The main event was 2 minutes.one good match.So many distractions???REALLY?

  • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

    ‘OMG! Randy Orton RKO’d RVD on a CHAIR! You know what that means! Attitude Era is coming back! No more PG!’ *w*nk w*nk w*nk*

  • Merve the Swerve

    The WWE Universe turns on Reigns in 3….2…..1….

  • Buzzard Follower

    So all of these matches where about 5 mins. I like what i read about orton giving rvd a beatdown because it sounds like the old randy the cool 2008-09 randy that just took out everyone
