Think it's pretty obvious it's Orton vs Wyatt at Wrestlemania and AJ will blame Shane for screwing him out of a title match leading to them facing off at Wrestlemania, the seeds have been planted for that.

Pretty decent episode of Smackdown where again it outshone Raw.

Aye, it's getting pretty predictable now. I feel really sorry for AJ if he is stuck in a dead end feud with Shane for WM.

AJ and Randall put on a really good main event but.......

1) You are giving back the title shot to an arsonist who gave it away?

2) You aren't having in the main event at Wrestlemania the guy that won the chance to?

3) You continue to have Bray Wyatt on your house shows but not turn up to TV to get revenge?

Lazy booking again sadly. 

It's a bit like the multi-woman title match at WM, lazy booking in the hope Naomi is fit to have some kind of role for the hometown pop and all that.

Hawkins calling out Ambrose was dopey as hell haha. As for Ambrose vs Corbin I am looking forward to that one happening.

AJ vs Orton was an excellent match, but this weeks show seemed a bit short on action but hey ho, can't win them all.

Smackdown was better than Raw again this week, The Miz and Maryse again stole the show with excellent promo work, credit to Nikki Bella too though.

The angle that ran through the whole episode was decent and was a very effective way to set Shane McMahon vs AJ Styles even if I'm not exactly thrilled about the match itself. On the plus side it puts AJ right where he belongs in a major Wrestlemania match.

Randy Ortons promo had me confused, he was promoting the crowd to cheer him but everything he said and his 'actions' from last week were all very heelish. Brays pre-taped promo by contrast seemed more face-like.

My only complaint of late has been the lack of realism, the whole Orton/Wyatt thing - are we really supposed to believe Bray lives in what basically looks like a garden shed in the woods which has been erected right over the worm infested corpse of his sister?? I know you're supposed to suspend your disbelief but Randy stood over the worm riddled pile of mud with creepy music playing in the background just had me going - really??!!

Also this week the whole thing with Shane, it was a decent beating AJ handed him, realistic looking, but then they showed the shot from inside the car, ok so WWE conveniently had a camera positioned in the back of the car which just happened to get a perfect shot did they? Again yes I know it's scripted entertainment but it's hard to get emotionally invested when it's so obviously staged. WWE should be working harder to make you think it's real even though you know it's not.

I skipped Smackdown this week. Just wasn't interested enough in things lately. Aside from The Miz, there's no one on Smackdown I give a crap about.

Skipped it again this week. Just not into it anymore. Despite what people might like to say about Smackdown being superior, if I'm gonna watch just one show from the main brand, it's gonna be the one I've watched since 1989, regardless of name. The one on Monday Night. Monday Night has always been wrestling night since I was 10 years old.

Maybe next week on the go home show I'll watch, and then again after wrestlemania. If things don't get better, I may just stop watching all together.

I went to bed after an hour and a half of Raw the night before, and don't really care at all what I missed out on.

Another really good episode of Smackdown.......

1) Usos get the belts back after a very good tag team title match that all four guys can be proud about.

2) Randall and Bray went up a notch with the well done creepy backstage segment.

3) Baron Cobin and Randall had an hard hitting contest and I liked the slaute Orton gave Ambrose for the assist.

4) Miz/Maryse were funny in their cheesy skits taking off Nikki and John. Spot on.

5) We saw Shane do one of his trademark big spots. He's still got it.

Bit disappointed to see the titles change hands, but if it leads to something of a bigger development for AA then I can handle it.

Shane missing AJ on the table elbow spot is an interesting one haha, suppose it's keeping AJ safe for WM though, and I bet some kind of gimmick will be added to that match next week too.

SD flowed very well again this week so credit to the writers for that.

We all know what Shane can do in the ring but its usually got a stipulation or two thrown in because hes not an out and out wrestler. AJ was right this week when he says that Shane doesnt realise what hes going up against, facing him at Mania.
But for obvious reasons they have to let Shane offer some sort of resistance like they did with him against Taker last year.
Remember in the feud near the Survivor series, it was AJ and Ambrose as the two main rivals on Smackdown and they have buried Ambrose since then. Putting him up against Corbin doesnt really interest me at the moment.
