A good Smackdown that maintained interest in Sunday’s Fastlane with good, but unsurprising, matches.
A good show with some really fun and good matches.
By keeping the match count low, this show was able to have some very nice wrestling. Chris Jericho wrestled AJ Styles in their rematch from the RAW after the Royal Rumble, and Sasha Banks took on Naomi in a very competitive match. Plus, the Dudley Boyz and the Wyatt Family both had some very important words for the WWE Universe (though some words were more cryptic than others).
Main event this week was pretty fun. It was highlighted by the return of Damien Sandow and a surprisingly competitive match between Heath Slater and Zack Ryder.
With some very enjoyable moments and some surprisingly good matches here along with the usual stuff that Smackdown produces, this week’s show is a good watch.
As usual, Main Event this week had two good matches and on okay one, but the main event match this week stood out as an important character-building match. Definitely worth a watch.
A predictable show with mostly predictable matches (though Kalisto versus Neville stood out), but it’s a good watch.
This week’s Main Event had a surprisingly good match between Rusev and Ryback and a match that most people would expect to be good, Swagger versus Owens.
As a complete show, the 2016 Royal Rumble started strong and lost some steam as it went along. As a match, it seemed reminiscent of years past, which isn’t always a good thing.
Predictions are made and a fatal four way tag team match is held to determine two of the spots in the Royal Rumble match.
This show felt a lot like the previous RAW in that not much new ground was covered, but there were still enough fun segments to make it an entertaining show.
This week Main Event is bookended by two decent tag matches with a very nice, aggressive, quick match between Neville and Breeze in the middle.
A few nice happenings and a good rematch for the US Title make this a Smackdown worth watching.
Main Event this week had some nice matches and made a good case for a tag team that could have some potential for a move to the main shows.
The first Smackdown of 2016 and the first Smackdown on USA featured two title matches and had a pretty important feeling. It started off the year of Smackdown right with some good action, fun moments, and promising developments.
The Social Outcasts highlight a show with entertaining yet unsurprising matches.
The last WWE show of the year and the last Smackdown on the SyFy channel brought some entertaining matches that didn’t mean much for stories, but were a pretty good diversion.
Three days before TLC, Smackdown delivered a middle of the road show that gave eight guys a whole bunch of screen time.
What was started on RAW continues on Smackdown with Sheamus’ League of Nations and a gimmick-filled, overstuffed main event story line.
The New Day celebrates Thanksgiving, and a new #1 contender for the IC title is determined in a really good triple threat match!
