Wasnt too much of a fan of this weeks SDL, to be honest it felt like a carbon copy of raw but watered down

We had the opening speech about what happened at survivor series
Tag team people in singles action
A title match
NXT women interference and attacking current superstars

The only thing that was remotely interesting was the main event lumberjack match

It will be interesting to see if this starts off Owens v Zayn as Owens left him to get beat down by the new day

They sort of teased Rusev having more of an impact too and i hope they do something with him because he is being wasted currently

literally the only thing that annoyed me about this week's SDL was that it didn't record and I didn't get to see any version of it until Friday.

I first would like to congratulate Charlotte Flair on winning the SmackDown Women's Championship & becoming WWE's first female Triple Crown Champion! However, "The Golden Gamer" himself has bad news for her- this Sunday's female champion vs. champion match at "Survivor Series" against my main "client" Alexa Bliss WON'T be title for title. Additionally, I have been bugging Carmella for weeks on cashing in Ms. MITB & she has REFUSED to cash it in. This Sunday, regardless of how the female champ vs. champ match turns out, I want Carmella to cash in afterwards & become the NEW SmackDown Women's Champion.

One more thing- I have warned Carmella on social media that if she is NOT the SmackDown Women's Champion by the end of this yr., my relationship w/ Carmella will be OVER.
It's over. It's ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL over!

Saw a photo of the final segment being practised during the afternoon. Whoever leaked it that works at the venue I suspect is now sacked.

Loads of things bothered me about the last segment such as.........

1) Doesn't Brock care about the Raw brand he leads?

2) Where were top Smackdown guys like AJ, Randall and Jinder?

3) The women were used as little as possible.

4) Why on a live show did a cameraman follow into the ladies locker room? Bit creepy especially in current climate.

5) Shane being beaten down so much but still had the energy to pull his top down to hide his belly and keep his sleeves rolled up.

6) The Shield music playing at the start and the Raw theme at the end. In a proper siege the themes of a rival show wouldn't be so readily available to play for them..

Have to be honest - ive slated SD for the past few weeks but this weeks episode was top drawer:

Wasn't a fan of the Shane pep talk at the start - seemed far too corny for my liking
Daniel Bryans promo was very very good and again sort of shoot style when talking about Lesnar quitting WWE as well as tapping out in UFC
Honestly nearly started bubbling myself when Charlotte won the title and gave that acceptance speech - it seemed to me like she was genuinely shocked that Flair was there so i dont know if they kept that from her as a surprise
The Usos are absolutely fantastic - they always deliver and they looked really bad ass when they were the first 2 to come to the ring to fight Shield even though they were (at that time) at a numerical disadvantage given New Day had just been destroyed
Loved the invasion angle - The Shield entrance is something that really gets the crowd going but my favourite part of the whole thing was when Strowman made his entrance (i dont think ive ever liked a monster heel angle as much as this one)

What a great way to set us up for SS

Quote Tonight's Smackdown preview:

Charlotte Flair to challenge SmackDown Women’s Champion Natalya tonight on SmackDown LIVE
Charlotte Flair will get another opportunity at the SmackDown Women’s Championship tonight on SmackDown LIVE when she challenges Natalya in her hometown of Charlotte, N.C. However, this match has the potential to change Survivor Series, as a Charlotte victory over Natalya would result in The Queen facing Bliss in Houston. The Raw Women's Champion stated last night that she'll be keeping a close eye on the match, and may even make her way up to Charlotte to see her Survivor Series opponent in person.

Sin Cara challenges Baron Corbin for the United States Title tonight on SmackDown LIVE
Sin Cara exacted a measure of retribution on Baron Corbin when he pummeled The Lone Wolf two weeks ago on SmackDown LIVE. Tonight, the masked man will get the chance to take Corbin’s United States Championship.

The New Day face Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn tonight on SmackDown LIVE
A huge tag team battle has been set for tonight's SmackDown LIVE, as The New Day will take on Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn. What will happen when these two teams collide?

Daniel Bryan returns to SmackDown LIVE
Two weeks ago, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan ventured into enemy territory on his own. Bryan went to Raw attempting extend the olive branch to Team Red and General Manager Kurt Angle, making it clear that he did not agree with SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon’s decision to place Raw under siege. Bryan returns to SmackDown LIVE this Tuesday. What will he have to say as the tension between Raw and SmackDown escalates just days from what is sure to be an unforgettable Survivor Series?

 
So the Zayn/Owens punishment is to be the jobbing team to make New Day look as strong as Shield were made to look last night.
 
Two title matches, but I would be surprised if we saw a change in either so close to sunday.
 
Bryan should be booked as someone who wants to face Kane so Shane has to remind him he's not cleared to wrestle and can't.

It will take more than The Shield to make a statement - 2 of the members were taken out by the SD team when they invaded Raw ..... unless of course this is part of the plan to build up Super Reigns

Strowman should be one of the team that go to Smackdown because it fits in with his destroying everyone mentality

Quote As many have realized, WWE Raw has not yet responded to the #UnderSiege attack by Smackdown's roster led by Shane McMahon that occurred a few weeks ago. While many sites are suggesting it's because there was never a chance due to the two rosters both on tour in Europe, that isn't entirely true as the bigger reason was that WWE waiting for the return of Roman Reigns to help lead the revenge attack.

-- With Roman now cleared, this Tuesday, The Shield - Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose - will be on Smackdown to set up their match with The New Day at Survivor Series. Whether this leads to a full blown revenge attack with The Shield (and perhaps other Raw talent) remains to be seen, as Tuesday's show is the Survivor Series go-home edition with the PPV taking place next Sunday.

I hope Raw turn up because as good as the 5 on 5 match is on paper, it's not been built up much on screen.
 
Raw after being taken out on their own show, are surely going to take out Smackdown on their own show?
 
I would be very surprised if Raw turned up and ended up shown up with a beatdown.

What an absolutely shit episode it was this week

Fashion files were a hit
The fact Raw didnt retaliate was a hit - purely so it builds up tension and mystery as to when they will finally respond

The rest of the show was absolute dog shit and that is me trying to not be overly negative

There was literally nothing at all good about Smackdown this week - it was probably the most missable show ive ever seen

The Jinder challenge is a joke
Owens and Zayn are getting boring already
Daniel Bryan getting the sympathy from the crowd
Another awful Ziggler and roode match

The only midly entertaining thing was English and Rusev and that was pushing it

Since the Shake up the two shows have literally swapped in terms of entertainment, match quality and storyline progression - smackdown is literally garbage at best at the minute
