Good match between Owens and Styles which sets the rubber match at Summerslam. I like how this feud has been booked as competitive with controversial finishes to create a real rivalry between two great talents.

The Fashion Files is weird but quite entertaining.

Love the Usos, for me the best tag team act currently in WWE.

Orton and Rusev is a boring feud, a clear case of two talents with nothing else to do and no doubt Rusev will once again do the job. Moving to Smackdown hasn't helped his status in WWE.

Solid match between Nakamura and Cena, the exploder suplex was a pretty bad botch and you clearly saw Shinsuke apologise after the pinfall. This was probably Nakamura's best outing on the main roster so far.

I hate that they've put Nakamura in the main event, he isn't ready for it at all. What's worse is they'll probably put the title on him just so Corbin can cash in...however i'd love for them to go the JBL route with Mahal and have him somehow retain for a few more months LOL

Fashion Files is probably the best thing WWE has been producing lately. It's given massive character depth to Breezango, and i'd love to see them as Tag Champions come the end of the year...and for what it's worth my guess is their attackers are AOP....oh and what about the love The Ascension get during the segments LOL

Smackdown for me is still the better of the two shows.

I am however really disappointed with the amount of time they have kept the belt on Jinder - his promos are dreadful and his wrestling hasnt improved any - he is in tremendous shape though - hes obviously been working hard

Nakamura has a flashy entrance and is great in the ring but hes getting on my nerves with his weird facial expressions and i think going forward they should give him a mouth piece or a valet of some sort - keep the microphone off him because he ruins everything hes done when he starts talking

Kevin owens is probably the best thing in wrestling, along with the miz ,and his current storyline with Shane, the attack on vince and his promos have been phenomenal

There also seems to be a wider range of people main eventing the weekly shows and the PPVs for me have generally been better than the raw ones.

I think they could do with moving strowman to smackdown and having him go for the wwe title seen as reigns is earmarked to be the one to take the belt from lesnar and smackdown dont really have a bad ass as such .. raw have 2. 

Smackdowns lame attempt at a bad ass, baron corbin, has some pretty cool new music - he just needs some charisma and some wrestling ability and they may have something to work with

But yeah all in all i like smackdown a lot and the land of opportunity thing they have going on works well and gives guys a chance who historically maybe wouldnt have got the tv time

Randy Orton & Rusev Storyline hasn't delivered because it's so one sided with Rusev looking way out of his depth.

Nattie Neidhart Now On Smackdown however is someone who's delivered. Being a champion has done wonders for her.

James Ellsworth & Carmella Storyline aren't booked as good as they were. I suspect Ellsworth will win her the title when she cashes in.

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

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

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.

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 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.

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
